FIFA 19 Final Events: The FUTTIES are Coming!07/03/2019
What is it?Futties is one of the final events of the FIFA calendar. It first appeared on FIFA UT in 2015. Since then there has been a few major changes. Initially the voting took place on a website outside of FUT and then would be released into the game via packs. However, from last year, the nominee players were given out to everyone with unique pink designs but with identical stats. This was the method for voting as you would submit your chosen FIFA player into an FIFA SBC (Squad Building Challenges) for no reward. The card that is submitted into the SBC the most across the FIFA community will have a separate SBC with new upgraded stats and a slightly adjusted pink card. The final FIFA SBC that gets released does not require the free pink cards only the new requirements, meaning it is available to all.
What can you hope to gain from this event?
The nominee cards that are given out stay in your club after the voting so any unused cards can be submitted into other FIFA SBCs or can brighten up your lineup. Aside from the pink cards, EA release brand new FIFA player cards and FIFA SBCs as well as re-releasing popular cards and pack opportunities through them.
This FUT promo has hinted to be on Wednesday 3rd July. However, this is only the first day so it could only be the nomination stage.
Overall, these predictions are based on the previous years and therefore cannot be 100% accurate and as EA have appeared to be even more engrossed in the idea of profit, this year more than ever, there will be probably be more FIFA players released into packs and could be worth while saving some SBC packs.
