Q: What TOTS means?
A: TOTS means “Team of the Season”.

A: A TOTS is a team that gathers the players who played better on the whole season. A TOTS card is an In Form card.

Q: How many TOTS exist ?
A: In FIFA 13 Ultimate Team, there are 8 TOTS:

    – silver/bronze players most consistent but never IF (silver/bronze players who played well the whole season but never had the luck of getting an IF card);
    – gold players most consistent but never IF (gold players who played well the whole season but never had the luck of getting an IF card);
    Barclays Premier League;
    – Bundesliga;
    – Serie A
    – Ligue 1;
    – Benelux
    – Liga BBVA;

Q: TOTY and TOTS are the same thing ?
A: No. The TOTY gathers the players who played better during the calendar year according to the FIFPro. The TOTS gathers the players who played better whole the season according to EA.

Q: How much increases the rating and the attributes of a player on a TOTS card ?
A: There is no rule about it but usually the rating increases 3 to 6 points. The attributes have a similar increase but it doesn’t mean that all attributes have to be improved.

Q: Can a player change his level thanks to the TOTS ?
A: No. Any bronze player that get a TOTS card, will increase his rating to 64. Any silver player that get a TOTS card, will increase his rating to 74. If a player already has rating 64 or 74, it will not change on TOTS version.

Q: How many cards are on a TOTS ?
A: 23 or 18. As it happens on any FUT 13 team, the TOTS has 11 main players, 7 subs and 5 reserves. However, some TOTS only have 18 players as it happened on previous years.

Q: How can you get one of those cards ?
A: As usually, you can buy them on auction market or you can get them on a pack. These cards are only available on packs in the week of its release.

Q: When these TOTS are released ?
A: The TOTS will be released on the following dates:

    Most Consistent but never IF – May 8th 2013;
    Barclays Premier League – May 15th 2013;
    Bundesliga – May 22nd 2013;
    Serie A – May 29th 2013;
    Ligue 1 – June 05h 2013;
    Benelux – June 07th 2013;
    Liga BBVA – June 12th 2013;

Q: The TOTS cards are expensive ?
A: Yes. A lot. Several cards cost more than 1 million coins.

Q: What happens to the market with the TOTS release ?
A: It crashes. In an attempt to get one of these millionaire cards, the players tend to sell almost everything, in order to get coins to invest in packs. The natural effect of this behavior is to make the prices of the cards drop.

Q: Should you sell your players before the TOTS release ?
A: Only the players that you think will be on the TOTS. They are the ones which prices will drop. It can happens with other cards, but it is more difficult to know.

Once a TOTS card comes out, will it forever be in packs? For example, will the “Most Consistent but never IF cards” be in packs through June along with all of the other TOTS?

Thanks for your question. It is important to know what gamers want to know.
The answer is no. It will work as TOTW. You can only get a TOTS card on the week (?) of that TOTS.

Hi.
This week you will find in packs, if you get lucky, Most Consistent TOTS cards that were released today.
Next week it will happen again with another TOTS. And it will repeat up to 8 TOTS.

do the prices drop as of today(when the first TOTS is released) or is it later on?

FIFA U Team Administrator

The prices started to drop much before the TOTS release. And it will be like that until the release of the last TOTS. Probably, the prices will increase a bit in that time.

I would like to know if those changes will affect licensed players stats in the game or in FUT only as I am playing a custom league with friends with teams created of licensed players that are in the game not FUT .

Hi, do you know if the prices are going to decrease again when the BPL TOTS will be released or do you think the prices will stagnate until the last TOTS? I just ask you this question because I sold my Bundesliga team (900K) one week before the first TOTS and I wanted to know if the Robben’s price is going to decrease again or to stagnate? I’m waiting for your answer, thanks.

FIFA U Team Administrator
Guest
May 10, 2013 4:15 pm

Hi Paul.
Nobody can be sure about what will happen. In our opinion, prices will keep droping until the last TOTS.
We think that Robben should be cheaper when Northern Europe TOTS is released (if he got a TOTS card).
We have a partnership with FIFA Game News website and they have a useful article about this topic. Take a look HERE.

I was wondering when the cheapest time to buy a tots player is? Is it on Sunday with the all day happy hour?

FIFA U Team Administrator
Guest
May 12, 2013 10:18 pm

Probably yes. The cards are usually cheaper on weekends. Don’t forget to buy it on a good time. See HERE when is the right time.

I got Bale before he was TOTS, so will he change to TOTS or not?

FIFA U Team Administrator

May 16, 2013 8:37 am

No.
IF cards are different cards from the regular ones. You can buy a TOTS card on the market house or get in a pack.

If I buy a TOTS BPL CB like vertongen right now, will he rise in price once the blue BPL players are out of packs? Is it a good investment?

FIFA U Team Administrator
Guest
May 20, 2013 8:54 pm

No one can knows what will happen.
Probably he will be rise in price as you said but not always is like that.
If you really will go in front with that, we think that tomorrow, before the new TOTS, will be the best time to buy him.

Does the price of a player increase if he was playing good in a match like ribery because they won the champions league?

FIFA U Team Administrator

May 26, 2013 5:16 pm

Yes, sure. Gamers tend to buy the players that are playing better IRL. More buyers means higer prices.

FIFA U Team Administrator

May 27, 2013 8:03 am

Hi.
Possible. But we don’t know. We think that only 2 o 3 players from Eredivisie will get a TOTS card.
It is to hard to say if you should sell or not. We do not want to take that risk.

After all TOTS leagues are released do all of the TOTS players come back into packs for a while.

FIFA U Team Administrator
Guest
May 27, 2013 1:28 pm

Nobody knows. Except EA. Maybe not even them.
It happened with TOTY but probably it will not happen with TOTS. At least, we think that last year it didn’t happen.

Do prices rise after all the tots have been released? Because I bought Rooney earlier in the year for 98k and now I want to sell him but he only goes for about 40k – any advice? Will prices go back up after all the tots?
Thanks,
Will

FIFA U Team Administrator
Guest
May 27, 2013 8:40 pm

Hi Will.
Thanks for your question.
On the beginning of the game, the cards are very expensive. At the end, they are really cheap. They are getting cheaper and cheaper. That’s why you paid so much (we paid 150k by Rooney on the first week) and now he is with a nice price. And he will be cheaper.
After all the TOTS have been released most of cards should increase a bit but don’t expect to have the same prices before the TOTS. Since there will be TOTS probably for three more weeks, the prices on the end should be lower than now.
Regards

After time will TOTS cards drop in price or rise in price

FIFA U Team Administrator
Guest
Jun 1, 2013 10:38 pm

Nobody can be sure.
In August for example, they will be cheaper. For sure. And in September they will be even more cheaper.
But in this following weeks, we really don’t know. We think that these cards are too expensive in the first 4-5 days. After that they usually drop in price. Some days later, they can rise again or not.
The best days of the week to buy these cards are the Tuesday and Wednesday.

FIFA U Team Administrator

It’s hard to say. We think that his price will drop a bit in the release of BBVA TOTS. Last year, TOTY cards didn’t drop a lot with TOTS releases.

FIFA U Team Administrator

All the TOTS / TOTY cards cards are blue, TOTW are black and MOTM are orange.
If you got a TOTW card, it will not change. It will be a TOTW card forever.

Hi, first of all i want to thank you for answer all the questions people may have had about Fifa, You are doing a very good job.

Now i have noticed that the TOTW player’s prices went up for the players the have TOTS cards. Is it because users would like to try the TOTW cards simply because they cannot afford the TOTS card? Would this be the right time to invest in TOTW players that have TOTS cards or am I mistaken? I play on the PS3 if this helps.

Many thanks for your support in advance

Kind regards

FIFA U Team Administrator

Jun 28, 2013 2:42 pm

Thank you very much for your words.
The answer to your question is not easy.
You are probably right. In fact, most of the cards are now more expensive than some days ago. We think that with FIFA 14 coming, most of gamers are trying new squads and with the prices of regular cards so low, it’s natural that they spend what thwy have in TOTW cards. We do not agree with the investment in TOTW players. We believe that in 15 days all prices will drop. And it will continue like this until the release of FIFA 14.
