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 ?

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?

  2. sithlil says:

    so are most players likely to drop in price? and will consumables drop in price too?

  3. Alex says:

    Will ea release all tots squads into packs for a limited time after all the squads’ initial release. For example, after the last squad, will all the squads be released?

  4. James says:

    Really confused here :/ is there just going to be 1 ‘tots’ or is ther going to be more? probably sound a bit dumb here!, thank you in advance :)

    • 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.
      Regards

  5. Aloysius says:

    Is this latest tots squad the only squad ? Will there be another squad after the 15th may?

      English Leagues – May 15th 2013;
      Northern Europe Leagues – May 22nd 2013;
      Southern Europe Leagues – May 29th 2013;
      Spanish Leagues – June 5th 2013.
      Regards

  6. Stan says:

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

  7. Marko says:

    Hi All,

    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 .

  8. jonny says:

    how much will the tots cards drop to? For example will n’koulou soon be 100k as oppose to 200k?

  9. Joel says:

    If a Toty or totw player is not in tots will their price rise??

  10. Paul says:

    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.

    • 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.

  11. Mark Bevan says:

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

  12. Ryan McAuley says:

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

  13. Ryan McAuley says:

    I got Bale before he was TOTS, I still have him, so will my Bale card change to TOTS or not?

  14. Turner says:

    When should I buy ronaldo or messi? I want either one really bad but I don’t want to lose money? When do you think they will be the lowest?

  15. James says:

    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?

    • 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.

  16. tyler717 says:

    consumables will go down as people will buy lots of packs

  17. Ryan McAuley says:

    I have a Bundesliga squad, I got it before the Bundesliga TOTS squad came out, will my players change to TOTS?

  18. dilaxzan says:

    i got at TOTS farfan, should i sell him now or will the price raise?

  19. omar says:

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

  20. Adam says:

    do you think de jong or eriksen from ajax could get a TOTS? And if they possibly could should i sell them before they are released?

  21. richard says:

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

  22. will says:

    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

    • 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

  23. will says:

    Sorry one last thing – when would be the best time to sell a tots lewandowski!

  24. Danny says:

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

    • 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.
      Regards

  25. omar says:

    what will the next tots be?

  26. Daniel says:

    Would you advise selling my Team of the year Pique ? will his price be affected by the market crash or when Liga BBVA comes out ?

  27. kevin says:

    Can you get TOTS players when you buy Gold-packs (5000-7500 coins) ?

  28. Feraz says:

    When TOTS players are out and happy hour is on…is it possible to get TOTS players in regular 5000 and 7500 coin gold packs?

  29. omar says:

    hello,will they be more tots after the liga bbva tots

  30. Jake Matthews says:

    I bought a gold pack today and received Andrea Barzagli as a normal gold card although he is in the current ‘team of the season’ team why wasn’t mine ‘team of the season’?

  31. are the TOTS packs over, and when is happy hour

  32. Joshua says:

    What if you get a tots and it’s not blue because I got courtois and he is a totw player this week

  33. Tom says:

    I just got baines in a pack. However, I only got his normal card. Shouldn’t I have got his tots card since he is in EASFC TOTS?

  34. Makram says:

    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

    • 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.

    Hi, I would like to know if there will be any TOTS available in the next weeks. Thank you.

  36. BenjaminFifa says:

    Hey i have a question, when the game changes to fifa 14, will the cards i have that are in the old clubs disapppear or change to the new club? How about if they retire like scholes. Thanks.

    • When someone retires, you still keep with that card and you can play with him. In fact, you will keep with all your cards the way they are now. But only in FUT 13.
      We will explain it better. When you mode from FUT 13 to FUT 14, you loose (almost) everything. They are different games. You will loose your cards (players, staff, consumables and item clubs), your coins and your trophies. You only keep your club’s name, your XP experience and probably your FC Credits.
      Regards
