FIFA 20 Draft is a game mode within FUT. Playing it, you can test your team building skills as you pick the best fit for each position from a five-player draw. Draft a squad and challenge opponents in a series of up to four matches to win big rewards for your club.
As a competition mode in FIFA Ultimate Team, FUT Draft mode allows to build a squad for your club from the scratch with a random set of high quality players which you may not already have their cards in your club. Draft mode gives you an opportunity to experience building a high quality squad while you can learn about the team & players chemistry, formation settings and in general, forming a good team in FUT.
Technically, Draft mode is a test drive for you to see how which players from which leagues and nationality you can go for to form a FUT squad. In FUT Draft mode, you don’t spend coins/points to get player cards – except for the competition entry, this will help you to draft out a team in action and improve your knowledge of how to fit the players in a team, as well as how to improve your gameplay with that team while you are achieving prizes and earning coins.
Take your squad to the pitch and challenge your opponents in a four-match series. Compete in single-player or online against opponents across the world. You’ll earn better rewards as you progress. Earn the best rewards by winning four matches in a row.
1 From FUT, go to ‘online’ or ‘single player’ and choose FUT Draft.
2 Choose one of five different formations.
The formation you pick will be your default formation throughout the series of matches.
3 Pick your Captain from a set of five superstars.
4 Fill out the rest of your 23-person squad by picking players for each position from a random draw of five players. Once you choose your starting XI, Bench, and Reserves, you can move players around to improve your Chemistry rating.
A FUT Draft competition series contains four knockout matches to play. You need a win to qualify to the next match, which means a loss will eliminate your team out of the series. The higher you go, the more stronger opponent you will face and the higher you finish in the competition, the bigger the rewards will be.
No. Just like it happens with the players, there is a random selection of five formations to pick. Start your FUT Draft by choosing the one you like most. Choose wisely: the formation you pick will remain as your default formation throughout the series of matches.
The captain is the first player you need to choose to your FUT Draft squad. Usually, he is the best player on your team. The five-player draw you will have to pick to the other positions are based on this choice.
After selecting your captain, fill out the rest of your 23-man squad by picking players for each position from a random draw of five players. You’ll be faced with interesting team building challenges: do you grab the best highest rated player in that position or focus on maximizing team Chemistry? Try different combinations to see what works best for you. After selecting your starting XI, Bench, and Reserves you can then move players around to improve your Chemistry rating.
No. Any FUT player may show up in the draft, including Icons, special and in-forms. With that kind of variety, the FUT Draft is a great opportunity for all gamers to try some of the best players in the game.
No. You can use them only while you are winning and at most four matches. Then, you will have to pick a new squad to play FUT Draft. Draft players can only be used in Draft mode. However, you can use the rewards you win in this mode to improve your original FUT squad.
If you are playing FUT Draft Single Player mode, the teams you will be playing against are real clubs from teams controlled by CPU. In FUT Draft Online mode, you will be facing the other FUT Draft mode players who are connected to EA online servers.
Before entering a Single Player Draft mode competition, you need to choose your game difficulty which will determine your competition prizes, the higher difficulty you choose, the better rewards you will earn at the end of the competition. Your game difficulty selection in Draft Single Player mode cannot be changed throughout the series of matches and it can fluctuate slightly for each match. Below is the list of difficulty selection including its difficulty breakdown information.
Yes, there is. But it is not in real currency. Every time you play this mode you need to pay 15,000 coins or 300 FIFA Points. It may look a lot but it is not because, even when you lose the first match, you’ll still receive a reward equal to the entrance fee. Alternatively, you can use a FUT Draft token.
Once you’re ready, it’s time to take your squad to the pitch and challenge opponents to compete in a four-match series. You can compete in single player or online against opponents across the globe. As you progress, you’ll earn better rewards, including coins, packs, and more. Win four matches in a row to earn the best rewards possible. When you are defeated before the fourth match, you also get a reward but not as big. Each time you win, the potential rewards increase.
