There are so many ways to start your FIFA Ultimate Team. Each website on the internet will claim they know the secret formula but so many things need to be taken into consideration. In this post, we'll be taking a look at everything you need to know before going into FIFA. This will be the first of many blog posts on how to start in FIFA.
It seems so simple. Prepare yourself. As the saying goes, if you fail to plan, you plan to fail. This statement couldn't be more true for FIFA players. The first thing to do is try to get to know the game. Is there anyone who has ever won anything without knowing the rules? Probably not. FIFA is a game like any other and it has (many) rules.
The truth is you don't need to know all of them, but the more you know the better the chances are of you being even more successful.
Now is the perfect time to find out what works for you in terms of strategy and then you can apply it to FIFA when the game drops. Use the previous instalment of FIFA as a tool to prepare yourself for the upcoming game.
Start early and start strong
As mentioned in our other post, how to play FIFA early, there are several ways you can get a head start on your opponents.
The first way to get used to the game, is by playing the beta and demo. However, both versions of FIFA do not give a true reflection of what the game is like. The beta is incomplete, hence the name "beta", and the demo often changes prior to the full release. Nevertheless, this will give you the closest possible experience
The FIFA 21 web and companion app is also a perfect way to get a head start on your opponents. These two apps come out approximately 5-10 days before the full release of any FIFA title. These apps give you full access to your ultimate team account on your PC, laptop or phone. This is perfect for building up your coin total prior to the game's release. However, you must have created your ultimate team account before August to be eligible to play on these apps. During the early days of these apps, you will receive daily gifts. These will be perfect for getting you started in FIFA 21.
Utilising early versions of the game is also key in getting a head start on your opponents. For example, playing the game with EA access if you are on Xbox is a good way to get a head start. If you're not on Xbox, you can always purchase special editions of FIFA 21 which allow you to play the game early.
If all else fails, make sure you're there and ready for release day. The longer you leave it, the further you will fall behind in FIFA as time progresses. Those who come earlier, get the best deals, make the most coins and in the end, get the best players.
Form your team
You've got everything in place. You've adapted to the game in the demo, you've opened your daily packs, and now you have some coins to play with. It's time to start building your team. In FIFA, it's not enough to just have a good group of players. You MUST be certain that these players can play well together.
Focus initially on getting chemistry in your squad. Utilising stats like pace in the early stages will be important when climbing up the divisions. As you progress, you will earn more coins and be able to build even better teams.
Once you've got the right balance of chemistry and rating, it's then important to take into consideration what kind of play style you'll be going for, once you know this, building your team will be easy going forward.
If you want to have the best team in the shortest time possible, you'll have to make informed decisions about who you're buying. Pay attention to the state of the market in the early stages in FIFA because it's at this time when you'll make the most coins. Once this time passes, you won't have another chance to make as many coins as you could at the start of FIFA.
