I am in FUT Seasons division 1. Does it means that I’m already qualified for the weekend?
No. To be qualified to the weekend league, you need to complete at least one season and not being relegated to the second division.
What happens if I am relegated to the FUT Seasons division 2? Do I lose the qualification to the next weekend league?
Depends. If in that week you have already met one of the qualification requirements, it doesn’t matter what happens next. For example: if you were promoted to the division 1 and then relegated to division 2, you will be qualified to the FIFA 18 Weekend League.
I qualified thru FUT Divisions while a Weekend League was running. Can I play it?
No. In that case, you won the right to play in the next weekend. After a weekend league starts, no one else can enter.
I reached Gold 3 in this weekend but it still says I’m not qualified. Why?
If you haven’t cheated, you are qualified and you don’t need to try to qualify again. You’ll receive your automatic qualification with your weekly rewards.
I reached Gold 3 on the previous weekend but I didn’t have time to claim my qualification. Will I still able to play it?
Yes, you will.
The commentator said that I’m qualified to the next weekend league, but when I go to check it says ‘not qualified’. Why?
Ignore what they say. It is not the first time that they say something that does not correspond to the truth. If you’ve met at least one of the requirements to qualify, then you do not have to worry about anything else.
Is there a limit of tries to qualify thru the Daily Knockouts?
Yes. You can only play each daily knockout up to 8 times. Since there are two tournaments of 48 hours each, you have sixteen chances to qualify to the next weekend league.
I’m already qualified. Can I still play the daily knockouts?
No. You can only win a daily knockout once.
Is there any time when the FIFA 18 Weekend League coexists with the Daily Knockouts?
No. The first daily knockout is open between Monday and Wednesday and the second one between Wednesday and Friday. The Weekend League starts when the second daily knockout ends and it expires when the first daily knockout of the following week begins.
According to the FIFA 18 Weekend League calendar, there is only one more round. Why?
FUT Champions was a big investment for Electronic Arts and there is no reason to end it. The FIFA 18 Weekend League takes place uninterruptedly between October 2017 and August 2018. The schedule is being published as the competition goes on, and for that reason sometimes it shows one more round and in other times it shows two rounds.
I played a few games in the weekend but I didn’t ranked. Why?
You need to complete at least five matches to rank. It doesn’t matter the results. If you play less than five matches, you will not receive any reward on that week. It’s like you haven’t played at all.
This month I reached Gold 1 three times and I only missed one Weekend League. Why my monthly tier is not Gold 1?
Your monthly tier depends of the games you win in each month. If you miss a weekend, it will be like you have lost all those games, so naturally your monthly level will drop. That’s why it is important to play all the games you can even if you can not longer reach the next weekly tier. To know how many wins you need to reach a certain tier, click here.
I already played all the Weekend League matches but I haven’t received any reward. Why?
The weekly rewards are not delivered as soon as you finish your matches. According to Electronic Arts, you will receive them before the start of the next Weekend League. Most likely, they will be delivered around 6pm (UK time) of every Thursday. You can follow our calendar to know the exact time for each round.
I already played all the Weekend Leagues of this month but I haven’t received any reward. Why?
The monthly rewards are not delivered as soon as you finish your matches. According to Electronic Arts, you will receive them before the end of the following month. Most likely, they will be delivered around the middle of the month. You can follow our calendar to know the exact time for each month.
I know that Electronic Arts already delivered the rewards but when I go to my app, I can’t find them. Why?
FUT Champions rewards are only available on the console/PC. You will not find them on the Web App or on the Companion App.
There is no difference between the Gold 1 and the Gold 3 rewards. Is this correct?
No. Each level has its own reward. You can check the weekly and monthly rewards for the three platforms, clicking here. Remember that the cards you get on the monthly rewards are untradeable.
Are there monthly rewards for PC gamers?
Yes. Whether you play on the PC, XBox One or Playstation 4, you will always be entitled to weekly and monthly rewards, according to your performance.
Why is the FIFA 18 Weekend League for PC shorter?
The Weekend League for consoles has 40 matches, while for PC it has only 25. There is no need to increase the number of matches on PC because in this platform the distribution is more perfect since there are less players.
Why the weekend league direct qualification is more difficult for PC gamers?
Before January 2017, PC players needed to reach elite 3 or higher to be qualified to the next weekend league. For consoles, they only needed gold 3. This was explained by the fact that for PC there was a higher concentration of players in the elite levels. However, since that date the requirements for PC and for consoles are the same ones.
Is there any risk to lose the packs if I don’t open when I receive them?
No. The packs you receive as Weekend League rewards can be opened anytime. They don’t expire. If you want, you can save them to open when better cards are in packs, as is the case of the Team of the Year.
I will be out when EA releases the weekly rewards. Will I loose the rewards?
No. You don’t have to claim your weekly rewards before the next round starts. They will be waiting for you as soon as you open FUT on your console next time.
Are the cards I receive as reward untradeable?
Depends. The cards from the weekly rewards are tradeable. You can sell them on the transfer market. The cards from the monthly rewards are untradeable. You cannot sell them and you don’t make profit when you try to discard them. However, you can use them to complete squad building challenges.
