Should TOTW be scrapped, revamped or left as is?

This years TOTW's have been the worst by far. They have maybe 1 or 2 good players and the rest end up being discards. Are you happy with the current state of the TOTW format?

    What should happen is they keep totw but from fut champs you get promo players from red picks instead TOTW but EA won’t do that because of £££

    Revamped, 95 percent of all TOTW cards is fodder.

    Fodder or quicksell is all they tend to be. It's beyond boring now

    I like that idea but there's no chance they'd do it, unless they start to put a load of worthless cards into the promos too

    TOTW is way underpowered compared to the promos. Promo players are generally boosted to 2 or 3 IF levels so when we get to December there’s only ever ~2 TOTW players who can even compete with the lowest rated promo player. TOTW boosts need to be higher across the board to make it worthwhile.

    Reduce the red picks to one per week in fut champs with promo players, rather that then getting 3 dross totw players every week

    In theory, the TOTW is fine. EA needs to stop pumping these juiced promo's into the market every week. Even icons are like 95% useless and 5% impossible to pay for and we are like 2 months into Fifa.

    If EA slows down by lets say 1 promo each month and just 1 team, not 2 teams + abother 6 players then the power curve won't be so bad and icons/TOTW will become usable for a longer time.

    But the sad reality (for us) is that they are in this to make money. We can argue all we want but it wont make any difference

    They need to scrap the TOTW pack from higher tier rewards, I’d rather have a 100k pack

    TOTW should go to players that deserve it unlike popular household names that only get it to sell packs.


    If EA didn’t flood the market with TOTW packs in champions it would be less a problem mostly everyone got 8 wins now they put it up to 9 it’s made no difference.

    They should up the number of * upgrades as each week progresses

    Start with 1 card getting a double upgrade, then 2 next week, then 3, etc etc

    There's 23 IFs in a TOTW + the silver stars, 24 weeks takes us up March, then its 2 months of double upgrades as the season comes to an end, by then promo cards will have completely blitzed the TOTW anyway but at least they will be something other than fodder

    That would, of course, damage promo cards for EA, but it would be probably best if they make SIF and all subsequent IFs not new cards, but an upgrade of the first IF. That way, IFs would be valued more (unless the player is injured for a long time in rl)
  • Keep it as it is. Most of totw is bad, but its only compared to EAs flashbangboom promo cards. I dont have a problem with them. But also when Im writing this, it would be fun to get the totw card based on just that performance from that game. For example if Bernardo Silva got 4 assist in one game, maybe they should base his in forms stats on how he got the assists etc and how he played that game. He scored a free kick goal? Boost the FK accuracy. Is that do-able?

    I agree with you. The difference this year is that the ”good” irl players have under performed. And everyone is talking about ”Cr7 robbed!! 1 goal 1 assist!!!”... if Yaremchuk scored 3 he should get it instead. And I think EA have been much better at it this year, hence why everyone are complaining

    Keep as it is. What would you like them to do with it? We have plenty enough promo cards as it is. TOTW cards actually offer some very good, risk-free value for some players, e.g. I am using 86 Barella, Kessie and Lautaro Martinez, all fodder price (20k) so no-risk investments, all very good in-game.

    Everyone is complaining about all the juiced promos so not sure making totw better would help.

    They overdid it with promo cards. They effin move faster than the ball does

    Keep the amount of promos, but rather than have a promo team, 6-10 of the TOTW players become promo players, the rest TOTW.
    That way...
    TOTW is still relevant and the players in it potentially useable

    Not as many watered down promos

    Only players deserving of special cards get them, no upping players that don't even play

    SBCs and objectives can do any other specials

    Just keep UCL, TOTY and TOTS the same

    What’s sad is now real football doesn’t make a difference.

    A few years ago, I’d get excited during a match if a player from my favorite team got 2-3 goals, assuming he’d get a TOTW. I’d then get to try out the card, and it would be quite useful for many weeks/even months.

    Now most TOTW players get small +1 upgrades which makes them far inferior to the juices up promo cards (who EA decides is going to be apart of)

    The Promos are the problem - they just want to make as much money as possible as they know people will buy the packs to have the best players. They neglect gameplay for stupid packs and hope they go bankrupt in the near future.

    Yeah good times man. I think TOTS were black cards too back then. I remember packing Kompany on 11 I think it was, and selling him for 300k.

    People complain about the promos but if they took them away they'd complain about a lack of content, also if it wasn't for the promo players everyone would probably still be using the likes of Dembele, Kimpembe, Fekir, Benzema etc. Nothing makes a FIFA more boring than coming up against the exact same players 95% of the time. Maybe if they toned down the promos a bit and juiced the TOTW up a bit they'd find a nice balance where both are useful

    It’s definitely doable. EA actually said they were going to do it prior to fifa 20 but it seems as though they did not make any changes or just don’t watch the matches.

    Dont think that's correct. TOTS was never black. TOTY used to be black though.

    I really miss those early FUT days. I consider todays Fifa the equivilant of Fortnite in sport games.

    The promo players a way to juiced

    Just compare them to the icons
    Icons used to be high class players
    Something special now they are handicaps just for the links and that’s just 3 months in the game!
    Totw icons otw are all useless now

    Why should I do an mid Icon sbc now if 95% of the icons are worse than the worst promocard players

    Ofc i do the sbc , for the gamble or to play some of my childhood icons but it won’t be worth it anymore with these promo cards

    For example
    If you pack Gerard mid
    If the promo cards wouldn’t be so juiced I’d play him
    But why should I play him if I can use this guendouzi etc?
    I think that’s just a bad situation caused from ea

    We only need 11 players. They release way too many every week and half of them are pointless.
