FIFA 18 Ultimate Team Draft
FIFA 18 Ultimate Team Draft is a unique game mode within FIFA 18 Ultimate Team in which you must build a team from a selection of players presented to you as options for each position. To enter a Draft you must pay 15,000 FIFA Coins or 300 FIFA Points. A Draft can be played offline against AI (with a difficulty chosen) or online against other players.
How to set up a FIFA 18 Ultimate Team Draft Team
As long as you can pay the entry fee for a Draft you can take part as you don’t use any of your own players. On entering you must build a team in the following order:
- Pick a Captain - This will be one of your best players, and let you build the team around them.
- Pick a Formation - This can’t be changed once you choose it, so pick a formation you want for the next four games of the FIFA 18 Ultimate Team Draft.
- Pick Players - Each position in your formation must have a player, so you choose them from a small pool presented to you. There is no cost associated with each player.
- Attempt to get a Great Team with Good Chemistry - The goal when selecting players is to maximise both your overall team rating and chemistry. You can preview each choice to see how it affect these two stats.
- Pick Subs/Reserves - These players don’t have any impact on your starting 11 chemistry and score, but you can switch things up once they are chosen. Try to think about what players could swap into the starting 11 to improve rating or chemistry.
How to win Prizes in FIFA 18 Ultimate Team Draft
As with every game in FIFA 18 Ultimate Team, you’ll earn FIFA Coins for every game you play. The real prizes in FUT Draft come from stringing together a series of wins. Get four wins out of four and you’ll earn the biggest prizes on offer.
Rewards for playing Online Draft are better than playing Offline Draft, and Offline Draft rewards don’t seem to be affected by the AI difficulty.
Annoyingly it seems as though what you win will vary, even if you always win the same number of games. Prizes always come in the form of Card Packs, but the quality can differ substantially.
