FIFA 18 Record Breaker cards are assigned for players who break records within real life football matches. Let’s learn something more about these red and blue coloured FUT 18 cards.
FIFA 18 Record Breaker Cards
What is a Record Breaker?
The RB cards were initially created by Electronic Arts to celebrate something that was happening or for charity reasons. These cards didn’t fit in any of the other cards types. In FIFA 13 they changed the card name from ‘special’ to ‘record breaker’ and assigned it to players who break records within real life football matches. Most goals scores by a national team, most clean sheets, fastest hat-trick, most consecutive matches scoring goals or most header goals in a specific league are just a few examples.
The RB card replaces the corresponding regular card for a limited time. In other words, during the period that a player gets his FIFA 18 Record Breaker cards in FUT packs, it is impossible to find his regular card there. Your odds of pulling a RB card from a pack are exactly the same of pulling the regular card of that player in another time.
If you own the regular card of a Record Breaker, your card will keep unchanged. If you want the improved version, you will need to buy the corresponding special version in the market or pull it from a pack when they are available.
When will the RB Cards be available?
FIFA 18 Record Breaker cards are extremely rare. It is not possible to estimate a release date because they will become available when a popular player breaks a new real life football record.
Usually, they are available in packs for only 24 hours or one week. That’s why it is so difficult to find them in packs or in the market.
Ratings and Stats
How big are the ratings and stats boosts?
The ratings and attributes of FIFA 18 Record Breaker cards are usually boosted in around five points, depending of their original ratings and the particular record that is broken. The higher is the original rating, the lower is the boost. The attributes have a similar increase but it doesn’t mean that all attributes have to be improved.
You can have the regular card and the RB card of the same player in your club. However, you cannot use them both in your squad at the same time. Each player can only have a Record Breaker card.
