10 Common FIFA 13 Ultimate Team Mistakes

 

Unlike what many people believe, FIFA 13 Ultimate Team is not a difficult game. The problem is that for your club achieve success, you must take the right decisions. Most of players adopt strategies that harm the performance of their club. Know which are the 10 most common mistakes among FIFA 13 Ultimate Team players:

 

  • Searching for coins generators and cards duplicators
  • Buying Packs
  • Ignoring the Chemistry
  • Quitting from a Match
  • Picking the wrong Formation
  • Do not Betting on a Squad
  • Do not Watching the Opposite Formation
  • Having Bad Connections
  • Not Knowing the Market
  • Not Knowing the Game Rules

 
 
 

The 10 Most Common FIFA 13 Ultimate Team Mistakes

     

  • MISTAKE 1 – SEARCHING FOR COINS GENERATORS AND CARDS DUPLICATORS

Everyday we meet people who lost all their coins and their valuable cards because they believed that there was a quick and easy way to earn many coins in FIFA 13 Ultimate Team. There is not. Some of these phishing schemes seem real and have such beautiful names as cards duplicators or coins generators. Thousands of players are taken by temptation and lose everything they have. Learn more about this subject here.

  • MISTAKE 2 – BUYING PACKS

You collected thousands of coins and decided to invest in packs. Once you open them, the more likely it is that you do not receive items valuable enough to cover half of what you spent. Again, the temptation is a bad counselor.

It is not easy to prove that buying packs is a bad strategy because we would have to analyze a sample extremely large. Many players have already spent millions of coins and they can corroborate what we stand for. Even without being able to prove irrefutably trust us: investing in packs is a very bad investment.

It’s like playing the lottery. We pay the price of being able to dream. It’s almost a certainty that we will not receive any good card, but that “almost” is often enough to make us move.

  • MISTAKE 3 – IGNORING THE CHEMISTRY

EA Sports has already announced in the early FUT’s that a bronze team with chemistry 100 can win without great difficulties a gold team without chemistry. Still, many players insist on investing in the squad and forget that chemistry plays an important role in the success of their clubs. With a chemistry below 90, the players will make many more mistakes.

If you have trouble connecting your players, at least try to apply them formation and positioning cards. And do not forget that the manager must also have the formation of the squad and the nationality of the largest possible number of players. The next time you play, pay attention to see how many gamers follow this last requirement and you will understand why it is the third most common mistake.

 
 

  • MISTAKE 4 – QUITTING FROM A MATCH

You are losing 5-0 at half-time and you are afraid that the it continues until reaches the two digits? Whatever you do, do not give up. Firstly because it is an extreme lack of fair play with the opponent. Secondly because, besides not receive the coins of that match, you will be harmed in your DNF%, the index that measures the number of matches you have not finished. Players who quit are penalized in the amount of coins they receive as a prize at the end of matches. And not just at the end of the next game.

If it is the only solution, place the control and come back once the match has finished.

  • MISTAKE 5 – PICKING THE WRONG FORMATION

It is known that the formation should be chosen as soon as possible, so that we can optimize the chemistry of our squad. However, most of FIFA 13 Ultimate Team players makes that decision without trying other formations. If they had done, they would discover that there is probably one formation more adaptable to their style of play. As in real football, the formation has a tremendous influence on the performance of your squad. Learn more about it here.

 
 

  • MISTAKE 6 – DO NOT BETTING ON A SQUAD

Many players think that should not exist suspensions, injuries or physical fatigue in FIFA 13 Ultimate Team. Those players belong to the group who do not realized that FUT is based on building a club with a balanced squad and not building a group of eleven good players. The rotation of our squad is one of the keys to success. Try always have two players for each position.

  • MISTAKE 7 – DO NOT WATCHING THE OPPOSITE FORMATION

In FIFA 13 Ultimate Team, before the start of any match we can view the formation of the opponent. Many players merely check what is the rating of theirs opponents or if there is any superstar. However, collect all the information about the opponent may be enough for the difference between winning or losing the match.

Try to imagine the weaknesses of the opposite formation (eg if he only has 3 defenders, try to attack on the wings), predict the weaknesses of his players (if one side of the defense is much weaker than the other, insist on that side) or identify the player who is the key (if your opponent plays a 4-3-1-2, make an appointment to his strong CF).

  • MISTAKE 8 – HAVING BAD CONNECTIONS

Having a bad connection to the server can be harmful to your club. If your connection is only restricted, you will have more difficulty pairing, you will play always in the opposite stadium with the camera chosen by him, your game may suffer constant breaks and, worst of all, the connection may fall sometimes damaging your DNF% and consequently the financial health of your club.
Try to connect by wire, change the firewall settings, open ports on your router or play on NAT1. Whatever you do, your FIFA 13 Ultimate Team connection should be the best possible.

  • MISTAKE 9 – NOT KNOWING THE MARKET

Making good business depends on the knowledge of the market. Many players discard cards or put them at auction at prices much lower than the prices they are worth on the market. The most common example is with the rare silver cards. If you want to avoid making this mistake, consult a database with the prices that are being practiced.

  • MISTAKE 10 – NOT KNOWING THE GAME RULES

This is a subject very overlooked by players: do not knowing the FIFA 13 Ultimate Team rules is very harmful for your club. For example, why to buy all the staff cards if you are not thinking applying the corresponding training cards? If you want to know more about FUT 13 rules, read our articles where we try to explain them.

Hi, I’m from South Africa, so the internet speeds here in general aren’t great. The fastest speed you can get without paying half your salary on it is a 4mb line.

I’m currently using a 1mb line, but I find that I often lag or sometimes even lose my connection. This is especially annoying when I’m leading 3-0. Is there any way to optimize your internet speed? (Like you said with firewalls and ports forwarded) What exactly are the best things to do in order to get the optimum internet performance in FUT?

Hi Charl. Thanks for your contact. There are two things that work very well.
The first one is to open the firewall doors. I can’t help you with this because it depends of your modem.
The second is to turn your connection in NAT1. The only problem is that when you have NAT1, you will only have internet access to FIFA 13. To do it, create a custom connection with your PPPoE information. If you still need help, please ask me again.

hi im a big fifa fan i have many arguments about this game 1 the main parts that are wrong with this game are that bk when fifa u t on the 09 was better because the gold players were allways stronger which was more realistic 2 the dfn is completely a load off bullshit because why should we suffer when your ea server packs up and punishes the players when its not our fault 3 why is the cards full of crap players 4 when winning the cup or league why cnt u show your team walking up wembly steps to lift that trophy 5 the passing and control of the players r crap

Hello, There’s something i don’t actually understand and I been searching around and I alredy read your chemistry articule and I couldnt fing the answer…. I’ll try to make myself understandable because I barely speak english.
I have a chemistry of 94 or so, I’ve seen people with 100 chemistry but with players of different nations or leagues and even with a player or two with a red shoe meaning that hes not good at that certain position, well…. my question is… If i hit 100 chemistry would it matter if I still have players with yellow/red link between them or even players with orange/red shoes? I ask this beacause i have like 3 days playing FUT and I alredy have a gold team with 94 chemistry and I feel like if I get 1 or 2 more players from the same country or league I’ll hit 100 chemistry. At the end… just wondering, improving my players and buying formation cards and all that AFTER I hit 100 chemistry is worth it? does it keeps improving the performance of my club?.

By the way, this website is incredible, you and your staff have done an incredible work, congratulations. I been reading around for the last 4 hours LOL :p its extremly helpfull. a Big congratulation.
Sorry for the long post. 🙂

Hi Sergio. We miss Mexico. Thanks for everything. We hope to get you here again soon.
We are writing an Chemistry Guide that we will publish next month.
There is team chemistry and player chemistry. The important is the first one. If you have chemistry 100 even with players in wrong positions, your team will be fine. But not 100%. If you have players chemistry below 9, these players will not play the best they can do. But again: the important is the team chemistry.

Hi, i play fut 13 on a dongle, i live in Australia. Every time i verse the computer on ultimate team, i constantly lose connection to the ea servers and when I log back on 4 or 5 of players are out of contract, as well as a lose of fatigue :(. My only choice is to play online and it takes about 1 or 2 minutes to find a player, it also lags a lot in the game. I play with one of those USB broadband internet thingos plugged into my laptop, then my laptop connected to my xbox with an Ethernet cable. Any suggestions to fix this?

ok thanks. im also wondering how do people get so many coins (not hacking). Like i’ve seen so many people with 500,000 coins etc. I’ve tried trading techniques, playing matches but what seems to stop me is buying fitness cards and contracts. Basically every player in my ultimate team have a fitness level of 40-50. A currently have about 480 coins in my account, im trying to save up to buy a quality goalkeeper, but its hard for me to even get up to 2000 coins because of buying cards everytime.

FIFA U Team Administrator
Guest
Dec 16, 2012 9:03 pm

Hi. We will publish lots of articles explaining everything about earning coins. Soon. Stop wasting your money on contracts and fitness cards. You need to buy some rare managers to boost your contracts up to 50% and you need to put everyone playing. While some rest, the others play. Read some articles that we wrote about this common problem.

Boost your contracts by 50%?
I think you mean 5% because I don’t think there is any manager 50%. If yes. Who is it?

FIFA U Team Administrator
Guest
Jan 8, 2013 9:56 pm

Boost your contracts cards up to 50%. You can have more than one manager stored on your club. Gold rare managers gives you 3%, silver rare 2% and bronze rare 1%. If you buy, for example, 10 gold rare and 10 silver rare managers, you will get 50% when applying a contract card. Read more here.

I know it’s been a few months however I thought I’d share what’s worked for me. When you load a game and the skill challange appears don’t press any button until the game is ready to play then push the start button.

Hopefully you’ve already found this fix but if not enjoy

I have been playing fifa for some time and I can tell that Fifa 13 very scripted results of matches seem to be predetermined, while playing the game it is very clear to me that the game/CPU heavily favors one player over the other, (even the ref cheats for one team over the other) the fact is you can only control 1 player at a time, and the behavior, actions/reactions of the other 10 players that are not currently being controlled speaks volumes..

Hello,
How can I change the formation of my entire team. I have looked at the formation cards to purchase in an auction and some have the darker gold color, are those it? Some people sell these cards for 2 or 3k. Or do I just have to individually change the position of every player? Thanks.

FIFA U Team Administrator
Guest
Dec 26, 2012 8:24 am

Miguel, we think that you are talking about rare gold cards. The only thing that you need is to buy individually change formation for all your players. For example: if your formation is 4-4-2, you need to buy several 4-4-2 players cards. In that case, the cards are rare gold because 4-4-2 are like this. But if your formation is 3-5-2, the cards are normal. It depends of your formation. The rare gold formations are more expensive (4-1-2-1-2 is very very expensive, for example).

Aziz
Guest
Aziz
Jan 8, 2013 9:09 am

Sometimes, it is better to buy a new player with the correct formation and sell your current one.

For example, I sold
Zarate 442 for 850 and bought Zarate41212 for 1200.
But formation modifier normally was costing me 5-6k.

FIFA U Team Administrator

Yes, there is (in PS3, press triangle in start menu). But unfortunately, this option has been temporarily disable by EA Sports in the last FIFA 13 update.

Probably yes. But we don’t know when.
That option was disable for security reasons. They are trying to fix the security problem. As soon as they fix that, the guess option should be back.

How can I send players from my ultimate teem to a friend?

FIFA U Team Administrator
Guest
Dec 27, 2012 11:47 am

You can trade with them. Since FUT 12 you can only trade with friends. Be sure that you already added your friends to your list.
First, put the player card that you want to trade on the auction market. Then, ask to your friend to find that card and click on “trade” button. He will be able to make you an offer for that player card. The offer could be coins + up to 3 cards.

FIFA U Team Administrator
Guest
Jan 6, 2013 10:33 pm

Hi.
First of all, it is important to know that you can only trade with friends that you added to your list.
Secondly, you have to be sure that you and your friend play on the same platform.
Finally, if you can’t find his player and he can’t find yours, both should use all the filters you can.

Why do we have winning or losing streak? Seems I win all my games easily then suddenly I loose all of them, even against weaker players. It’s not because of stamina because I even applied cards, indeed the guys play better but it seems all luch positioning goal opportunities all go the other way. 15 shots on target and 0 goal, they try 3 shots from anywhere and they go in. It’s boring as hell I want to stop ultimate team like this.

FIFA U Team Administrator
Guest
Dec 27, 2012 11:59 am

Have you checked your morale? It’s harder to win matches when we got some losses in row.
Other thing that we already talked about it on MY FUT 13 is that when you’re in a wave of losses the best thing to do is to stop and to try in another day. There are time to win but there are also time to lose. To play well we need to be calm.

Thanks for your reply, yes I check morale, I’m all high or very high, but sometimes it just doesn’t work I’m sure it’s the mecanics, passes don’t go to person aimed for, controls are bad, positioning is bad, playing my best games ever I can barely end up with a draw.

Happens to me as well. Maybe it has something to do with the stadium.
Does anyone know if it is worth buying all the stadiums. Does playing in a stadium you do not own lose morale?
I have a suspicion that players do not well in away games.

FIFA U Team Administrator
Guest
Jan 8, 2013 9:52 pm

Hi. Stadium has a small interference on morale. If you play at home you will get the bonus morale written on the card that you have as your own stadium. Since you can only have one card assigned as your stadium, it makes no sense to buy more than one.

I have a BPL squad and I was wondering how much it would affect my players if I added Piqué to my cb position and he had no links to the surrounding players. If I have him in the right position/formation and I have a manager to boost chemistry would it affect how they play that much?

Hia I don’t have money my players have ran out of contracts so I don’t have a full team to play a ultimate match which means I can’t earn coins I don’t have many players basically I can never play a ultimat match online coz I don’t have contract consumables what do I do plzzzz helping begging anyone I just want to play online with my own squad but can’t how do I start fresh HELP!!!!!!!
How do I make a ultimate team squad from scratch only starting with 2000 to 2500 coins and how do I keep their contract from not running out

FIFA U Team Administrator
Guest
Dec 29, 2012 11:04 am

Hi. If you have a good squad the better thing is to sell some players and buy some cheaper ones.
The better thing to do it’s to start all over again. You can delete your club (chose “delete” on club menu) and start a new club again. You can do it up to 5 times.
You will get a new welcome pack and you will be able to play it online again.
Playing matches isn’t the best way to earn coins. There other ways that we explained on our website and that we will explore in January. Trading is the best one.
About the consumables, the best thing is not use it. They are too expensive. Try to follow our tips, like buying rare managers to boost contract cards. You can learn more here.

The contracts are a common problem for many gamers. You should save to buy rare managers in order to boost the contract cards up to 50%. It is very important to do that because you will earn more coins playing matches than the amount of coins that you spend in contracts for each match. Read more about it here.

Hey my squad has 99 chemistry without a manager. It’s a 442 formation and the right side is Serie A and the left side is Bundusleiga. Every link down the middle (Strikers, CMs, and CBs) is red because of the league and nation differences and i was wondering, do players pass or play worse with players they have red links with, even though they all have 9 individual chemistry?

Very good question. It’s good to have so clever questions. This helps all the community. And we know the answer.
We are finishing an article about chemistry, so it is a recent subject to us.
The red link between players are only graphic representative. They will play with these players on the same way they do with others. All that matters is to have 9 at individual chemistry and 100 to team chemistry.

I have some new questions which is somewhat related.
I have no problems with my squad. I have Messi and Ronaldo and other good players.
But my Win-Draw-Losses are 320-40-411.
I was continuously losing for around 2 weeks. I was suspicious and discovered my controller was not working properly.
With my new controller now I win almost 60% of the time. I am thinking of deleting my club and make a new one. But I have over 1000 players in the club. Will they be deleted too?

I cannot afford to lose Messi and Ronaldo..

Thanks

More than 1.000 players ??? We did not know anyone with so many players.
About your question: If you delete your club, you will loose everything. Coins, W-D-L records, players, items. Everything except your XP experience and your club name. With a such fantastic team we do not recommend to delete your club.

hi im from the uk. i was wondering if there was any sort of filter to play people just from uk in ultimate team? my problem is when it gets to about 11pm every player i play is from USA, Mexico, Brazil, even South Africa and the connection is shocking. the latency still has 3 green bars tho. i know the whole of the uk playing fifa does not go to bed at 11pm. i have fibre optic broadband so my connection is not a problem. any advice would be appreciated.

Hi. In Ultimate Team it isn’t possible. You can play with everyone…
Just to be sure if it isn’t your connection you can try to find if you have a red, yellow or green connection on your FIFA 13 Menu. You can have a fibre broadband but your router can block FIFA. In that case, you need to open the router ports.

To improve your connection you can try to connect your PS3 with a ethernet cable, you can try to open the router ports, you can try to get NAT1 and, if nothing results, you can try to change your ISP.

It is not serious. You can get a new one. Go to the auction house and choose staff – managers.
When your manager ran out of contracts, you can buy contracts to him instead buying a new one. Just go to auction house – development – contract and buy a manager contract card.

Trading is a very large subject. We are planning to publish some articles about it.
Very briefly, you need to study the market, select a target and buy cards on good hours (night) and sell them on good hours (day). Put every auctions on one hour and renew them.

Hi. Thanks for writing such a helpful thread. Currently, I have a five-star team (rating 82) but with a very low chemistry. Let’s say that I want to get 100 chemistry. Would it be possible by getting all players from one league (even if they are from different nations and play in different clubs)?

FIFA U Team Administrator

Jan 16, 2013 6:00 pm

Hi Omar.
You will love the biggest and better article that we will publish very soon. It’s a complete chemistry guide.
The connections between players of same league are weak links. But it is enough to get team chemistry 100. Don’t forget to put a gold manager with the same formation.

Thanks. Oh one more thing – in reply to another comment, you said that you can get more than one manager at the same time. What about the manager in the active squad? Does it make a difference (instead of the preferred formation)? What about the the managers stored in the club – do they need new contracts, or is this only for the manager in the active squad?

FIFA U Team Administrator
Guest
Jan 17, 2013 11:09 am

Hi.
The manager of the avtive squad is the more important. He is the only one that spend contracts and the only one that improves the team chemistry. He should be gold, from the same formation and with the nationality of most od players.

FIFA U Team Administrator

Jan 25, 2013 10:17 pm

Hi.
Yes, they will if their individual chemistry is under 9.
The chemistry affects the players attributes in-game. It is the weighted average of team chemistry (25%) and individual chemistry (75%). As you can see, inidivdual chemistry is more important than team chemistry. If your players are in wrong formation and their individual chemistry is under 9, you should buy formation cards.

I won every game up to division 1 and then won the league losing only twice. From then on I keep on losing, hair staying in the division every time. It’s so annoying. I am getting beaten by people much worse than me! Whenever I attack they have all but 3 players behind the ball and I can’t get through, they then win the ball and counter. When I am defending I only ever seem to have 4 or 5 behind the ball! So annoying. Also my keeper keeps palming it straight to their players. Any advice? Thanks

FIFA U Team Administrator

Hi.
Every match is different. You need to adjust your style of play to each opponent. Try to be smarter than them.
It happens many times: we are better but we lose. Why? There are many factors. Mental factors are also important.
One final note: pay attention to the morale of your players. If you loose some matches, the morale can be low and it affects how they play.

You can have a good connection but in FIFA 13 it can be “moderate”. It is important to get “open”. Ty to connect by cable, open the router ports to FIFA 13 or connect by NAT1.

Please who are asking about contracts and they cant afford them. I have a great tip for you. When your player contract goes to 1 game left then put him up for auction and once he has sold then buy the same player(or different if you want) but with a higher number of contracts. This way you wont ever need to buy contracts again. Same with managers as well.

Hope that helps. 😀

FIFA U Team Administrator
Guest
Jan 30, 2013 12:53 pm

Daniel: great tip. We forgot to include that tip on our articles.
It works. Of course, you just should use them if, as you say, you cant afford contracts. Buying/Selling players/managers all the time is a bit tiring and you loose the players bio registry (goals, matches, etc…).
Thank you Daniel.

Is there a way you can change players positions? if so how? because i have iniesta as a LW but i play him as a CAM or CM… so is there i way i could change his position from LW to CAM or CM?

FIFA U Team Administrator
Guest
Feb 1, 2013 11:04 pm

Yes and no.
Let’s see. Is there a way you can change players positions: applying position training cards that you can find on packs or on the auction market. But you can not change for any position you want. There is no way to turn a LW on a CM or on a CAM.
The changes that you can make are: RB-RWB, LB-LWB, RM-RW-RF, LM-LW-LF, CDM-CM-CAM-CF-ST.
If you are using a player in a wrong position his individual chemistry will be damage and he will not play at his best. You should try to have all players with, ate least, individual chemistry 7.
Take a look to our article to find out where a player can play.

Hi, i just wanna start off by saying that your website is great, and very helpful! So here is my question. I have played FUT for about 2 years now, and i know almost everything about it. I have 2 100 chemistry teams and every player has 9 chem. I had just won division 1, but one day my team started playing like crap, no passes went to the players they were supposed to, etc. It feels like a 60 chemistry team, and im getting pretty scared 🙁 do you have any ideas, please help!

Hi. Thanks for your support.
You are not the first one to complain about this. If you were noobie we would ask you about morale, fitness and things like that. Since you already are playing FUT for 2 years, it is more difficult to help you.
If you are having difficult playing with the exactly same team that you had success, it is a bit strange. If not, it may be the answer to your question.

FIFA U Team Administrator
Guest
Feb 9, 2013 8:25 pm

The DNF modifier down 0.25 per each incomplete match.
The DNF modifier rises 0.02 per each complete match up to 1.25.
When the DNF is greater or equal to 1, it takes the value 1 on the skill award math. That is, the DNF only penalizes.

You can learn more about this in our Calculator article.

It’s easy to find blue and orange cards. Just use the filters. For example: did you try to filter by LW, portuguese and Real Madrid? You will find blue cards for sure. Find here what THIS colours means.
About the training card which card are you asking about ? Player, GK, position, formation or manager ?

Doesn’t matter how good your team is, it all depends on whether you’re a good player and fifa feels like handicapping you. Just by a good bronze team, it will handicap anyone who has a better rating than you.

FIFA U Team Administrator
Guest
Feb 18, 2013 8:02 pm

It is not a noobie question. There are many players that don’t know the answer to this one.
Every player that plays a match lose a contract (not the contract card, just one of their matches). Which means that, if you make a substitution that player will loose a contract.
In other words, if a player stays on the bench all match or if a player remains on the reserve, he will not loose a contract.

Feb 20, 2013 8:02 pm

I have to disagree with chemistry comment. Simple fact is if your team has Ronaldo, messi etc. You will sure lose to a team with lower rating due to handicapping scripts of FUT. Many experienced players know this and act accordingly. My rating 83 team was losing 4 to 0 first half to a 79 rating team. I knew handicapping was in action so I got red card on purpose. All of a sudden my rating goes down I become the underdog and win 5 to 6 second half. In reality this wouldn’t happen but in FUT happens all the time. It’s their way of keeping bad players interested in the game while pushing losing team to spend money and buy better players.

FIFA U Team Administrator
Guest
Feb 20, 2013 10:37 pm

Hi.
Thanks for your opinion.
You talked about handicapping scripts. We can say that we agree with you or not since we don’t know if it exist. No one has proved yet. Even those experienced players can’t say that they believe at 100% that it exist.
We are not saying that you are not right. But we can not publish content that we have not sure. We believe that chemistry affects performance like we wrote.
Regards!
