Ultimate Team is still one of the most popular game modes in FIFA. This probably won't change anytime soon as it scratches the collector's itch and calls forth childhood memories of collecting stickers. In Ultimate Team you collect virtual cards with which you build teams of different levels (gold, silver, bronze) or which you simply mix.
It sounds easy enough, but it's a bit more complicated than just collecting a few players. You need to keep a few things in mind while building your team, like the nationalities of your players. Harmony in your team is important and your players need a good chemistry. If the mood is bad and your players don't like each other, they won't perform very well on the field.
