FIFA 18 FUT 18 Guide - Ultimate Team Tips

The basic idea of FIFA 18 Ultimate Team is to build up a team by collecting player cards. These cards can be won by completing tasks or challenges, or bought from the online transfer market. With a team assembled you can compete online, take part in challenges, or play a series of offline events in order to earn more FIFA Coins. Like we said, this is the basic idea of Ultimate Team. Once you delve deeper into it, there’s a lot more to discover and learn.

What can you Buy in FUT 18 - Cards, Cards, and Cards in FIFA 18 Ultimate Team

FIFA 18 Ultimate Team is about building the best squad of players possible, but far more than players can be bought. You can buy manager cards, stadium cards, and consumable cards. Consumables are a big part of your day to day management of your FIFA 18 Ultimate Team. Players can lose fitness, so you can apply fitness cards, they can run out of contract so require a contract extension card, or can be trained up using a training cards. All of these things can either be earned through achievements in the game or bought on the marketplace.

FIFA Coins and FIFA Points in FUT 18

There are two currencies in FIFA 18 Ultimate Team: FIFA Coins and FIFA Points. When you see an item for sale, whether it be a player or a consumable card. Coins are earned by playing FIFA 18 Ultimate Team and taking part in the various challenges and events, while FIFA Points are bought from your console/system’s store.

For example, a Gold Pack from the store will cost you 5,000 FIFA Coins or 100 FIFA Points. Check out our guide to earning FIFA Coins in FIFA 18 Ultiamte Team for more info.

FUT 18 Chemistry

We’ll go into far more detail on chemistry in FIFA 18 with a full guide, but the idea is this: your team will play better if players are alongside players of the same nationality, league, or club. These, along with other factors such as position played, the manager, and games for the club, all go into determining the player chemistry and team chemistry. The better these things are, the better your players will perform.

FUT 18 - FIFA 18 Ultimate Team Tips and Tricks

  • Ultimate Team is pretty complicated, so make sure you play through the challenges built into the game. These will earn you rewards and FIFA coins while you learn how things work.
  • Players have contracts, meaning they have a limited amount of games they can play for you. Loan players can’t have their contracts extended. Be careful about who you play in you team so you don’t use up valuable contract games when you don’t need to.
  • While playing FIFA 18 Ultimate Team is fun, earning enough coins to buy the players you want can be a real grind. If you find yourself losing interest and don’t mind spending real world money, buying FIFA Point to buy packs is a nice shortcut. It might feel dirty at first, but if it means you get more fun from the game and can afford it, go for it!
  • Think about chemistry from the start. While it's tempting to jump in and buy players you like, you'll end up with a team with low chemistry that can't enter certain events.
  • Chemistry is calculated when you submit your team and enter a match, so you can move players around without it affecting your chemistry. If you have a winger who'd you'd rather play as a ST, just tinker with your formation when the match starts.
  • An injured player will only recover if you keep them in the main squad. Either use a fitness card to heal a player or keep them in the reserves so they will recover over time.

    I love to play FIFA 18 on my Playstation 4. It is very addictive game for me. The FIFA 18 Hack is the best choice for a FIFA player who is looking for lots of coins and gems. Anyways, thanks for posting this guide. It is very helpful.

    I don't know what game you are playing mate but there is no way any "stop and turn" works against the god like powers of the computer AI. In squad battles (or any online mode) any difficulty passed semi-pro is extremely hard this year.

    The game applies user sliders before each match and there is a noticeable difference immediately when you start the game. My players are much slower, they don't respond normally and the computer AI user stats are buffed to the point that any player rated beyond a 70 is a mini Pele on any team. The amount of blocked shots, intercepted passes and getting pushed off the ball by a 5'4 140lbs LW is ridiculous.

    In squad battles I lose to a barely rated 70 team with a 186 rated squad, how does that make sense? I've been playing FIfa for a very VERY long time and FIFA18 is by far the worst version ever. I'm on FUT looking at all the pack "promo's'" and that's what FIFA18 is really about, exploiting people for money.

    Instead of spending money on making a better game, EA would rather profit off people by exploiting them as much as possible. The game is shit and they know it. Everything from Squad Battles, online match making, flawed defenses, bad animations, glitches, lost server connections etc etc etc, the game in general is complete garbage. Everyone please play PES instead..... #FixFIFAEdited November 2017 by Pan1cShooter
