What is the FIFA 18 TOTY Promotion?

FIFA 18 TOTY Cards Guide

 

Every year since FUT 12, in early January, Electronic Arts build a team of players based on their real performance on the previous year. The players of this TOTY are usually selected from the voting of FIFPro, the world wide professional footballers association, and announced in the Best FIFA Football Awards 2017 Gala. They are supposed to be the best players in the world. However, this year things will be a bit different.

During the FIFA 18 TOTY Promotion, Electronic Arts releases several FUT pack offers, themed cards, kits and squad building challenges. Details on FIFA 18 TOTY offers will be updated below.

FIFA 18 TOTY Cards Rules

How the FIFA 18 TOTY Cards Work

FIFA 18 TOTY Cards Guide

 

The TOTY cards are assigned to a selection of players and released all at once in a single FUT squad.

Based on what happened last year, these are the official rules we expect to see this year:

RULE 1
AVAILABILITY

FIFA 18 TOTY cards become available in packs for a full week. During this period, they replace the corresponding regular not coloured cards. In other words, it is not possible to find a regular card of a TOTY player during this week.

1.1. If you own the regular card of a TOTY player, your card will keep unchanged. If you want the new version, you will need to buy the corresponding version in the market or pull it from a pack in that month.
1.2. Your odds of pulling a TOTY card from a pack are exactly the same ones of pulling the day 1 card of that player in another time.

RULE 2
RATINGS AND STATS

During this week, the best players of the year will be released in packs with upgraded ratings as unique items. The ratings and stats of these cards are permanent. They don’t change.

2.1. The TOTY release doesn’t affect Ones to Watch and Path to Glory cards.

FIFA 18 TOTY Cards

The squad of FIFA 18 TOTY Players
 

The TOTY cards are released once a year during the TOTY event.

In FIFA 18, the FIFPro team of the year was announced in October but EA doesn’t want to use that team for the TOTY. For the first time ever, the Team of The Year will be voted on by a carefully curated list of media, athletes and EA SPORTS FIFA community members. This collective of ballot recipients has been chosen to represent the millions of EA SPORTS FIFA players all over the world. Each team will be selected from a shortlist of 55 players, nominated by EA SPORTS for their real-world performance in 2017. Custom-built ballot boxes will be delivered to each recipient on January 8, containing all 55 of the nominee player items. Each vote will consist of three attackers, three midfielders, four defenders, and one goalkeeper in a 4-3-3 formation. Each ballot recipient will cast their vote by posting a photo of their team on social media with #TOTYVote by January 12. The ballots submitted by this group will account for 60% of the final vote. The remaining 40% of the votes will be cast by EA SPORTS. The final Team of the Year will be announced starting on January 15, with special TOTY player items available in packs for a limited time in FIFA 18 Ultimate Team and FIFA Mobile.

Just as reference, this was the FIFPro of this year:

FIFA 18 TOTY Cards FAQ

What you need to know about FUT 18 TOTY Players Cards
 

Q: What is the Team of the Year?
A: Team of the Year, commonly abbreviated to TOTY, is a team of IF players released on a yearly basis. These blue In Form cards are assigned to the best players based on their real performance on the previous civil year.

Q: What is the difference between Team of the Year and Team of the Season?
A: TOTY is a team made by the players who played better during the calendar year. The TOTS has nothing to do with the calendar year. It is about the players of each league who have played better during the season (usually between August/September and May).

Q: Who chooses the players for the Team of the Year?
A: The TOTY players are usually selected from the voting of the International Federation of Professional Footballers (FIFPro), the world wide professional footballers association. This representative organisation comprises of 65,000 pro footballers and is made up of 58 countries. However, this time the TOTY will be chosen by a selected group of the community, including creators, media and sports personalities along with EA.

Q: How many players are selected for the TOTY?
A: Eleven. The Team of the Year is released only once a year and contain the best 11 players in the world,. The TOTY is made up of 1 goalkeeper, 4 defenders, 3 midfielders and 3 forwards, where each category can contain a player in any position.

Q: How many nominees the Team of the Year has?
A: 55.

Q: Are TOTW released in the Team of the Year week?
A: Yes. Team of the Week are released interrupted every Wednesday.

Q: How easy is to find FIFA 18 TOTY cards in FUT packs?
A: Just like it happens with any best rated player, the likelihood of finding FIFA 18 TOTY cards in FUT packs is very low because these cards are extremely rare.

Q: In which FUT packs I can find FIFA 18 TOTY cards?
A: TOTY players can be found in any pack with rare gold players. Obviously, the chances of finding one of these cards are higher if you open a pack which contains more rare gold players cards.

Q: Can I store packs to open during the TOTY week?
A: Yes. It doesn’t matter when you got the packs. The cards you will find inside depend exclusively of the date you open them.

Q: When is the best time to open packs ?
A: That’s when all the Team of the Year players are in packs, probably between Saturday night and Monday night. With eleven TOTY players in packs, your chances of finding one of these cards are two times higher than in the first two days and three times higher than in the other days.

Q: Are FIFA 18 TOTY cards available in FUT Draft mode?
A: Yes, they are available in all modes, including FUT Draft and FUT Champions.

  1. I packed a Dani Alves toty, should i sell him now or wait untill Toty is finished, a friend told me he would go up in price after toty is finished, but im not sure.

  2. Will all TOTY players be released on one day so that they can all be packed not just the set few you can get on each day? If so what day?

  3. Ter Stegen?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????OMG FIFA 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

  4. I dont’ get it. You say buy you’re team on the sunday before TOTY, but you also say that prices will fall to never before seen lows during TOTY because of pack openings. What is it; buy team now, or during TOTY?

  5. What the… Valencia has been playing better than any right back in the game he should be in the team of the year squad and pogba has been playing better than modric

    • It’s not easy to know. Usually, the prices are lower in the days before TOTY comes out and then they go up. However, this year the TOTY was not officially announced, so we don’t know if the prices will be lower before or after its release. Sunday night should not be a bad time, I believe.

  6. How many coins do you predict totw fullbacks will cost, and should I head to the store and buy 84 rated players for future secs?

  7. Mr. Lopes, could you explain what does the following mean:
    Q: When is the best time to open packs ?
    A: That’s when all the Team of the Year players are in packs, probably between Saturday night and Monday night. With eleven TOTY players in packs, your chances of finding one of these cards are two times higher than in the first two days and three times higher than in the other days.

    So, if the estemated release is Monday, 8th Jan, than its best to open packs between 13-15 Jan?

    • This year, it’s not guaranteed that the TOTY will be released in a Monday. You should try your luck when all TOTY cards are available in packs. Keep in touch with us and we will announce it in our website as soon as we know.

  8. So if I do the 81+ Double Guarantee SBC, and I open it when TOTY are in packs, I will receive a TOTY player guaranteed?

  9. So i recently did the 81+ TOTW SQBC, it says i can store it and open it when i choose, and will apply for the current TOTW. If i wait to the realese of the TOTY and open the pack, would i get a player from the TOTY or not? BTW great column. Thanks men
