How can I get my hands on a pink card?
Firstly, you’re going to have to complete a FUTTIES Nomination SBC. By doing this, you will get a pink FUTTIES Nominee item with base stats of the player you voted for.
The player with the most completed Nomination SBCs will win each category.
The FUTTIES Winner item will then be made available with boosted stats. It’ll feature a gold trim to signify their accomplishment in a separate Winner SBC.
You then need to complete this to get the card.
The cards are untradeable, so you won’t be able to buy them from the market.
How much of a boost will players get?
According to fan website FIFAuteam. ratings and attributes of the FIFA 17 FUTTIES cards are usually boosted by ‘one or two points’, compared with their last TOTW/MOTM/iMOTM/Hero cards.
So when does it kick off?
It starts this Friday, July 7 and ends on August 18.
Is anything going to happen to the market?
FUTTIES are untradeable so they won’t affect the market.
So, who should I invest in?
While it’s impossible to know exactly what players will feature in Futties, we can make an educated guess that Francesco Totti, Steven Gerrard, Xabi Alonso, Frank Lampard and Philipp Lahm will likely be in the mix.
One Reddit fan has come up with a strategy to ensure you’re all set for the SBCs should any of these players feature.
Here’s what he recommends:
Francesco Totti: •89 rated squad, 40 chemistry •squad with lots of informs and special cards
Insight: Possibly a squad with a few AS Roma players but don’t over invest as that’s what everyone is doing
Steven Gerrard: •88 rated squad with 40 chemistry •Squad with lots of special cards and Fut Champs players
Insight: Past club: Liverpool. Could need some Liverpool informs maybe or some English ones.
Xabi Alonso: •88 rated squad with 40 chemistry •Lots of special cards •
Insight: You may need players from his past clubs (Liverpool, Real Sociadad, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich).
Frank Lampard: •87 rated team with 40 chemistry •Special card squad
Insight: Again, you may need players from his past clubs
Philipp Lahm: •89 rated squad with 40 chemistry •special squad
Insight: You’ll almost certainly need Bayern Munich cards
