For the first time ever, Team of the Week Moments Items are being added to FUT. Discover what they are and why they will feature in FIFA 20.
FIFA 20 Team of the Week Moments
TOTW Moments Items
Following the suspensions of the Premier League, Bundesliga, Ligue 1, La Liga, Serie A and several other leagues across the world, EA have taken the decision to suspend their normal Team of the Week (TOTW) program. When thinking about a replacement for TOTW, they wanted to build something that is authentic to football and that is compatible with TOTW if they are able to reintroduce it later in the year. That’s why they are introducing the Team of the Week Moments.
TOTW Moments will be a recurring program that will be based entirely on a historical TOTW release from past FUT titles. Each squad will be a reflection of a specific TOTW that was released from March onwards in each product year. EA wanted to keep these Items distinct, to help distinguish between authentic performances taking place this season and in previous seasons.
All players that will be released will reflect their current teams, and their OVR increase will be in line with their FUT 20 upgrade path. For example, in FUT 18 TOTW 28 Kyle Walker was given an 86 OVR Item in line with his FUT 18 upgrade path. For his TOTW Moments Item, Kyle Walker will be an 87 OVR Item based on his FUT 20 upgrade path.
TOTW Moments will replace TOTW in multiple places across FUT starting on Wednesday, March 18th. This includes, amongst others:
✔️ FUT Champions Rewards
✔️ In packs
✔️ Weekly Featured Squad Battle within Squad Battles
✔️ SBC Requirements
✔️ Future FUT Objectives
✔️ Draft Mode
To ensure that Live Items continue to be valuable to players when building their squads, EA’ll also be upgrading Ones to Watch and Headliners Live Items based on if they are released in a TOTW Moments squad. As players with dynamic Items are selected for TOTW Moments squads, they will receive upgrades accordingly. When the regular football calendar resumes, Ones to Watch and Headliners Items will continue to receive upgrades as they would have done previously.
