    ★ | Introduction
    With the release of FIFA 18, the Writer team plans to starting hosting one night only Ultimate Team tournaments on both the Playstation 4 and Xbox One. These tournaments will follow a single elimination (knockout) format, though you can expect the number of participants to vary, as well as the incorporation of themed events. It should be noted that these are not Community Cups, and as such, all tactics and playstyles are permitted (this includes attribute cards). The goal is to create a structured tournament that is both fun and rewarding, but you should expect people to enter with a win at all cost mentality. Streaming is encouraged, so if wish you share your tournament progress, post your Twitch/YouTube in the main thread.

    PS4 Hosts: @Chow and @Sokker14
    XB1 Hosts: @Mike_Pickford

    IyayJUz.png | Timeline
    There are no plans to make this a weekly event. Instead, sign-up threads will go live at random (48 hours before kick off) on a first come, first served basis, so be on the look out in General Discussion. Once the cap is hit, sign-ups will closed, but you can still be added to the reserve list in the event of a dropout. Participants will be tagged once the tournament thread goes live, and the draw will commence prior to the specified start time, with the bracket posted in both the OP and the latest post. A http://challonge.com/ link will also be posted so you can keep track of the bracket in real time.

    If unforeseen circumstances occur and you cannot make the tournament, please contact the host ASAP - a reserve will be drafted in. During the event, please use the thread to communicate with the hosts as much as possible. We expect tournaments to last a few hours, so it's important you keep us informed of any results, as well as replays (in the event of a draw) or no-shows from your opponent. Byes will be enforced if a participant does not show up within the first 20 minutes of the specified start time, though later rounds will be judged on a case by case basis. Repeat offenders will be blacklisted. For more details on the first tournament, see below.

    The real reason you're here. @EA_Andy has confirmed that because this is being run on the FIFA Forums, there will be prizes available. The winner of each tournament will be able to pick 1 TOTW item (untradeable) of their choice from any of the Team of the Weeks we've had so far (1-4).

    Part of the reason we decided to leave this as anything goes is because we don't want people to complain about a certain tactic that someone has used. Whilst attribute cards are frowned upon, they are still a part of Ultimate Team. At the end of the day, this is a fantastic opportunity for forumers to pick up an IF like Messi that they may never have had the chance to use, should they go all the way. Maybe we will look at banning attribute cards in the future.

    Would laugh if whoever wins just picks a discard inform. Are the rewards tradable?

    Well read but that doesn't specify. Chow's updated it now though, says untradable.

    We spoke at length about the fairest time, there's always going to be a region that gets shafted and this time round it's Asia/Oceania. Don't forget, it also has to fit into the Community Writer's schedule too. Unfortunate, but that's how it goes.

    Are there any runner-up prizes or is it just winner takes all?

    There isn't this time around but we'll take on feedback following this tournament and look at that going forward.
