FIFA 19 Halloween Cards Rules
How the FIFA 19 Ultimate Team Scream Cards Work
To promote the event, Electronic Arts introduced in FIFA 17 a brand new themed card. The Ultimate Team Scream cards are assigned to a selection of 23 players, chosen based on exceptional real world performances, records and FUT attributes, and released all at once in a single FUT squad.
These are the official rules we expect to see this time:
Except 3 that become available only via SBCs and objectives, all FIFA 19 Scream cards are released in packs for a limited time (Oct 19 – Nov 01). 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 Scream player during the Halloween event.
1.1. If you own the regular card of a scream 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 week.
1.2. Your odds of pulling one of these Scream cards from a pack are exactly the same as pulling the day 1 card of that player in another time.
RATINGS AND STATS
For a limited time, 21 Ultimate Scream players will be released in packs. During the season, at specific times, their attributes will be updated.
2.1. All Ultimate Scream cards feature a small boost on their rating (+1), compared with their respective NIF cards, and two attributes boosted to 90.
2.2. For each card, the boosted attributes change every refresh time.
2.3. Since these are not temporary boosts, the attributes will not revert back to the first card. Instead, once new attributes are assigned, the cards will stay unchanged until a new refresh comes out.
If a player is upgraded, his Scream card will also be upgraded.
3.1. Usually, if an upgraded player’s new OVR rating equals or surpasses his existing first in-form’s rating, his special cards will get an upgrade. However, an exception is made to Ultimate Team Scream items. These cards are not take in consideration as special cards.
SQUAD BUILDING CHALLENGES
When Ultimate Scream items are boosted, they can be used in any SBC at their higher rating.
