Team of the Week is a big part of FIFA 18 Ultimate Team. In this FIFA 18 Ultimate Team of the Week guide we’ll explain what TOTW is in FIFA 18, why you should care about TOTW, how to get hold of TOTW Player Cards, and what the TOTW Challenge is. Read on for all you need to know about TOTW and come back every Wednesday for details on the new TOTW in FIFA 18 Ultimate Team. This week it's FIFA 18 TOTW 5.
For more on FIFA 18 that isn’t TOTW, head over to our FIFA 18 guide hub. It’s where you’ll find info on the best overall players in FIFA 18, the best young players, and how to defend or score lots of goals in FIFA 18.
What is FIFA 18 Ultimate Team of the Week (TOTW)?
Each week EA picks a squad of 23 players based on who performed the best in the real world during the previous week. These players are put into the starting 11, subs bench, and reserves, a formation is picked, and all players are given stat boosts.
The key part is that the stat boosted player cards are different to the standard player cards in FIFA 18 Ultimate Team. Your original cards won’t receive a boost. You can identify a TOTW card by its black background.
How to get TOTW Player Cards in FIFA 18 Ultimate Team
You can get TOTW Player Cards in FIFA 18 by buying card packs, the same way you get normal player cards. For the week a player is part of the TOTW in FIFA 18 Ultimate Team that player won’t appear in standard form, so all instances of that player in a card pack will be the TOTW version.
You can also buy TOTW Player Cards from the transfer market, although these fetch ridiculous prices. If you want to get the standard version of a player in TOTW you will also have to head to the transfer market.
Can a Player be in TOTW Multiple Times?
A player can be part of TOTW numerous times, and each time his rating should be higher than his previous TOTW card. It should be noted that you can only have one version of a player in your squad at once.
When is TOTW Available in FIFA 18 Ultimate Team?
TOTW in FIFA 18 Ultimate Team is made available every Wednesday at 6 pm BST/10 am PDT. The cards will be available in card packs until the new TOTW is rolled out at the same time the following week, but can always been bought from the transfer market if someone is selling.
FIFA 18 Ultimate Team TOTW Challenge
When the week’s FIFA 18 TOTW is made available, the weekly TOTW challenge is also added to FIFA 18 Ultimate Team. You can choose the difficulty level, but the reward scales up the harder you set this too.
