Team of the Season Guide for FIFA 14 Ultimate Team

 

    Q: What TOTS means ?
    A: TOTS means “Team of the Season”.

    Q: What exactly is a TOTS ?
    A: Team of the Season joins the players who have played better on the whole season.

    Q: What is the difference between TOTW and TOTS ?
    A: Team of the Week is about the best players of the week. Team of the Season is about the best players of the season.

    Q: What is the difference between TOTY and TOTS ?
    A: TOTY is a team made by the players who played better during the calendar year, according to the FIFPro’s voting. 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) and they are not chosen by FIFPro members.

    Q: Which one is better: TOTY or TOTS cards ?
    A: To the same player, TOTY card has better stats than his TOTS version.

    Q: The TOTS cards are In Form cards ?
    A: Yes. TOTW, TOTY, TOTS and MOTM are all In Form cards.

    Q: How can I get one of these cards ?
    A: You can get a TOTS card in the same way you can get any other card: on packs or on the transfer market. If you want to try your luck on packs, you can go to the store and buy them with coins or FIFA Points. The chances of getting a TOTS card in a pack are low. However, during the TOTS weeks, the Ultimate Team store have special packs available. Find HERE how to choose the right pack for you.

    Q: It is possible to get a TOTS card when opening a free pack like the ones of the Manager Tasks?
    A: Yes, it is. It is possible to find one of these cards in any pack with rare players cards that you open during the TOTS season.

    Q: The TOTW will still ran as usual ?
    A: Yes. TOTW will still ran as usual. You can expect a new TOTW every Wednesday.

    Q: I have the regular card of a TOTS player. Why my card hasn’t changed ?
    A: Because the cards don’t change. You will need to buy the new card if you want the improved version of your player.

    Q: How TOTS cards looks like ?
    A: The TOTS cards are blue, like the TOTY cards, but on the background they have the colour of the category (gold, silver or bronze). The following picture shows to you how these cards look like:

Team of the Season Guide for FIFA 14 Ultimate Team

 

    Q: There is only one Team of the Season ?
    A: No. There is one Team of the Season for each one of the most popular leagues. There will be eleven squads.

    Q: The several TOTS are released all at once ?
    A: No. Usually, there is a new team every Wednesday and only one at a time. Two of the TOTS will be released in a Friday.

    Q: The MLS is not one of the leagues with a TOTS ?
    A: No. It is true that EA Sports releases a team of the best MLS players but they do not call it a TOTS. The cards are also blue and they are released more than one month after the last TOTS. This year, this special team will be released on August 6th, day of the MLS All-Star match against Bayern Munich in Portland.

    Q: What is a Community Team of the Season ?
    A: It is a squad made by players who played very well the whole season but never had the luck of getting an In Form card. There are three community TOTS, one for each player category (bronze, silver and gold). These teams are chosen by the FIFA community and the cards are released in packs all at once.

    Q: There is any rule to build the Community Team of the Season ?
    A: Yes. Roster needs at least 6 players from UK leagues, one from French Leagues, one from German leagues, one from Spanish leagues and one from Italian leagues. In the silver and bronze community TOTS, instead of one player from these leagues, roster needs to have a minimum of two players.

    Q: What is the ROTW Team of the Season ?
    A: It is a team made with the best players of the season from the whole world except Spain, UK, Germany, Italy and France.

    Q: What is the EASFC Team of the Season ?
    A: It is a squad chosen by the FIFA 14 Dev Team from the best players of the other TOTS. It is the last Team of the Season to be released.

    Q: How the TOTS are chosen ?
    A: It depends of which TOTS. Community TOTS are chosen by the FIFA community. EASFC is chosen by the Dev Team. The other teams are usually chosen based on popular publications, like Kicker to the Bundesliga TOTS, Gazetta Dello Sport to the Serie A TOTS, L’Equipe to the Ligue 1 TOTS and Marca to the BBVA TOTS.

    Q: All TOTS can be found in packs for a week ?
    A: Most of them yes. However, the English Lower Leagues, the ROTW and the EASFC have shorter times.

    Q: How can I know who are the players of Team of the Season of FIFA 14 Ultimate Team ?
    A: We will publish every Team of the Season on our website. You can also follow us to check our predictions.

    Q: How many cards each TOTS has ?
    A: Each Community TOTS, the EASFC and the ROTW TOTS have 23 players (11 on the main team, 7 substitutes and 5 reserves). Each one of the other TOTS has 18 players (11 on the main team and 7 substitutes).

    Q: How many defenders, midfielders and forwards each TOTS has ?
    A: Usually, the starting eleven has one goalkeeper, 4 defenders, 3 midfielders and 3 forwards.

    Q: How much the rating and the attributes increases on a TOTS card ?
    A: There is no rule about it but usually the rating increases 3 to 6 points comparing to the regular card or, if exists, the last IF card. The attributes have a similar increase but it doesn’t mean that all attributes have to be improved.

    Q: Can a player change his category on a TOTS card ?
    A: Yes. But not in the Community TOTS.
    In the most consistent TOTS, any bronze player that get a TOTS card, will increase his rating to 64. Any silver player that get a TOTS card, will increase his rating to 74. If a player already has rating 64 or 74, it will not change on TOTS version. Only players that already have changed their categories on a previous IF card will get a different category from the one they have in their regular cards.

    Q: Can a player change his position on a TOTS card ?
    A: Yes, they can. It happens if they have played most of the season in a position which is different than the one it was printed in his card. It is more often on the Community TOTS.

    Q: How the new ratings and attributes are calculated ?
    A: It is EA Sports who decide and it depends of the player performance during the season. Let’s look to the Suarez example: his regular card is 86 but his TIF card is 91. His TOTS card is 94, because it is 3 points higher than the last IF card. And why 3 and not 4, 5 or 6 ? Because it is already a huge difference to his regular card.

    Q: There will be happy hours and special packs during the TOTS weeks ?
    A: Yes, it will.

    Q: Where can I find the TOTS players of FUT 13 ?
    A: HERE.

    Q: The TOTS cards are expensive ?
    A: Yes. A lot. Several cards cost more than 1 million coins.

Suarez, Ronaldo and Ibrahimovic will get TOTS cards for sure


 
 

    Q: What happens to the market during the TOTS weeks ?
    A: No one can be sure. We may share with you our vast experience but remember that nothing is guaranteed.
    In a general way, the prices drop and the market almost crash. Gamers try to sell their cards and join enough coins to try their luck in packs.

    Q: When the prices will be lower ?
    A: This is one of the most asked questions about Team of the Season for FIFA 14 Ultimate Team. Again, we will try to help you but things may be slightly different.

    Stage 1 – Before the TOTS Release
    Players’ prices go down a couple of weeks before the TOTS release. In anticipation for the Team of the Season, many gamers will sell their players. They know their cards will worth less in the coming weeks and they also need coins to invest in packs. The more closer you are from the release, the lower will be the prices. You may not notice a huge drop until the stage 2, but it is a good idea to sell your cards as soon as possible if you are planning to use the TOTS season to make coins. The consumables’ prices may keep the same in this stage, because the gamers will need them for their teams and will not sell them.

    Stage 2 – TOTS Release Day
    As soon as the first three TOTS are released, you will clearly see that the prices are much lower. Many gamers sold everything they had and they will now spending in packs most of the coins they got. It is the most basic rule of the market: when the supply exceeds the demand, prices fall and when the demand exceeds the supply, prices rise. In this case, there will be lots of players, consumables and club items on the market and their prices will be really low because gamers will be opening packs until the last TOTS.

    Stage 3 – TOTS Weeks
    Many gamers have saved their coins to buy packs during the best TOTS. The prices will be very low until the end of this stage, because gamers are still buying packs.

    Stage 4 – After the TOTS
    As you may imagine, many gamers will want their teams back and, according to the market rules, the prices will go up again. However, don’t expect to go back to the same prices we had before the TOTS. Most of them should be slightly lower.

    Q: Should I sell my team to make coins during the TOTS ?
    A: In a business perspective, you should do it. As soon as possible. Remember that this is only a game and you should focus on getting fun. If you sell your team, you may not be able to play during the TOTS weeks.

    Q: How to make coins during the TOTS ?
    A: This is the most asked question about the TOTS. You are probably thinking to sell your team before the TOTS and buy it back after the TOTS. It is what everyone will suggest you but it is not the right way to make coins during the TOTS. Instead of getting 20% or 30% profit by your players, you may double your account. Just buy when prices are lower and sell when prices are higher. In order to do that, it is really really important to follow the following tips:

    Prices will be lower during the most wanted TOTS, like BBVA, BPL and even EASFC Team of the Season.

    Prices will be lower on the first days of each TOTS and higher on the last days of each TOTS. Monday and Tuesday, for example, are good days to sell. You can buy and sell several times during the same week which means much more profit.

    Prices will be much lower during the best Happy Hours, specially the ones with 100k packs. It is the best time to buy all the cards you can afford. As soon the HH ends, you can sell them all by a good profit margin.

    Q: Which players should I buy and sell ?
    A: Any player should be fine because all the prices should go down during the TOTS. However there are better players to invest.
    The prices of the most expensive players, like Ronaldo and Messi, don’t have a huge drop as it happens with the other cards. We don’t recommend to invest in these players.
    We suggest to invest in players of popular leagues, with a good card weight, up to 5k coins. Why ? Because, not to mention the EA tax, it is much more easier to get 100% profit with these players than with more expensive players. Let’s look at this example: imagine that you could buy Eto’o by 20k and sell him by 30k; if this was true, it was because you probably could buy
    Evra by 800 coins and sell him by 1600 coins. If you are thinking to invest all your coins, you should do it in the players that give you the larger % profit.

    Q: How do I know if the prices will be even lower or even higher ?
    A: You don’t have a way to know with 100% sure. If you are buying during a Happy Hour of a popular TOTS, you should take that risk and assume that the prices are good to buy as they are. In the same way, if you are tracking the prices of a couple of players, you should have an idea if the price is a good price to sell or not. Remember that is is better to buy and sell thousand of cards with a lower profit than just a couple of cards with a good profit.

    Q: Is the TOTS a good time to build my team ?
    A: Sure. It is an amazing time. If possible, try to do it during the best Happy Hours and most popular TOTS.

    Q: I have a player that I believe will feature in the TOTS. What should I do ?
    A: If it is the regular card, you should sell it as you would do with any other card. The regular cards’ prices of TOTS players are not affected by the new card.
    If it is an In Form card, you should sell it as soon as possible. These IFs will most likely drop in price due to their supply temporarily rising, as gamers anticipate their TOTS in-form release, and put what will be the ‘inferior’ in-form card on the Transfer Market.

    Q: What happens with the prices of the other IF cards ?
    A: Usually they drop.

    Q: I have another question about TOTS.
    A: First check if that question was not already answered in this guide. If it wasn’t, feel free to ask us in the comments.

  1. I spent nearly 2 million in 3 hours now , but i just gold players , No blue No green No black , my question is these cards have A 1 day of A week ?

    Thanks

    • Special coloured cards like TOTW (black), MOTM (orange) IMOTM (green) or TOTS (blue) are only in packs for a certain period of time. EA will annouce those periods in twitter, facebook or at the shop section of the fut. Outside of these special periods, you are just able to draw regular rare and non-rare cards.

  2. hello, plz can someone explain difference betwen cards? i have reus tots card 90lm total stats 489, but i want to buy c ronaldo gold with total stats 487, so i dont understand reus better in ut?? 🙂 reus shot power 98 but in game c ronaldo shot looks more powerfull but shot power only 94, and other things visual not in total stats looks better too. how to understand ?: )

    • Hi.
      You can not compare to players by their total stats. Ronaldo is better because he has better stats in what he has to be good. Doesn’t matter to have defense 99 in a LW, right ?
      Another thing: don’t look to IF stats in databases. They are wrong. You need to do it in game.
      Regards

  3. So… The TOTS is over?What shall I do now?How long should I have to wait,until I can sell all my very gooooooood players and veeeeeeeryyyy muuuuch money?Some say,until the end of the WC… Is this ok?

      • Well,of course for more than I bought them… I bought Aguero for 100k and his price before the TOTS was 150k… So best would be about 20% more per player. Examples:Xavi: Bought for 90.000.90.000 + 18.000 would be 108.000… Or Dani Alves:Bought for 25.000.25.000+5.000=30.000 and so on… I will probably wait 2-3 weeks and then try to sell them.

  4. Approximately when will the prices of players rise again. Because my team, about 2 weeks before tots was worth 600k now it’s worth 270k. When will it increase again and how much will my team be worth.

    • Hi.
      The prices are already rising. Ibrahimovic, for example, is now 150 to 200k more expensive than 3 days ago. But don’t expect to go back to the same prices than before TOTS. In this guide, we have alerted about it. Probably you may get 400k for your team or something like that.

  5. What’s happening to the market???
    It’s going down dramatically
    Players losing 100 200k in 1 day
    You think will the market rise again???
    I invested good money to buy cheap players and sell them after the tots but now they are even cheaper
    I would prefer spending in beer those money
    its just becoming to much fut we should quite and torn back to Pes were u don’t have to spend money and there is no handicap
    the handicap in my opinion is not something mental
    ive got 2 accounts one in D1 cheap players never invested 1 coin
    2 full of tots toty and if
    The trick is about your profit on your account and you’re club value
    If don’t want to lose don’t invest any money just play the players you have

    • It was expected to see prices rising after TOTS but not with the FUT WC release. In the first days of FUT WC, many thousands of gamers have spent their coins with packs. Prices are very low now but we think they will go up in the coming days. You can expect a slight drop when world cup starts too.
      Regards

  6. Rodrigo what’s going on y is everyone so cheap Ronaldo is 1.1 mil I bought him for 1.8 is he gonna rise pls help

  7. Hi Rodrigo this guide has been really helpful to me since I’m new to fifa 14, yes, it’s been like 7 years I last bought a fifa game. I realized the FUT mode is more than building a team, and has so much stuffs that are difficult to understand, but yet the guide was really helpful, there’s one thing I don’t quite get it, on the attributes question, what does means and In Form card for a player, and what means that all TOTS cards are IF cards, I’m a bit confuse here, does it means it has a 99 fitness attribute? I’d be thankful to know the difference. Everything else was very understandable! Thanks a lot bro

  8. I have huge problems winning games since I use full, 2/3 or even half of my squads with IF and TOTS players. Should it not get easier winning games with better players?

    Does anybody experience the same problems with using any kind of Inform players?

  9. What playerz will the easfc consist of? hihhest rated? most expensive? will it be the best tots to spend money for points on?

  10. Dear Rodrigo, i am about to sell my barclays team and buy a german one. Is the best time to buy the german one, while 100k packs are present? And also, will the prices of players rise after team of the season? Will it be more profitable to sell my team after tots? Thank you

  11. Dear,

    I bought all ten packs which was available to get a bbva player but got nothing so the packs are finished. So is it possible that there will be more packs?

  12. I have pulled a few TOTS players this week, and i was wondering, do you recommend selling the players right away or waiting till TOTS is over. Will their prices rise after TOTS or will the stay the same or even go down?

  13. Hey Rodrigo I brought second inform Suarez for 520k before the TOTS came out and he has now gone down to 340k. I was wondering how much his price will increase, cheers 🙂

  14. Hi Rodrigo I was just wondering if Ronaldo and bale will increase in price during the la liga tots assuming that they get one

  15. Hi Rodrigo
    Will the totw players increase after the tots and if they increase, do they increase as much as tots players?

  16. Should I buy good IF and wait till the tots finishes and then sell them and will the good tots go up like ibrahimovic after the market crash

  17. Hi rodrigo just wonder if I should buy bale now for 550k and also will his price rise after tots and if so to roughly how much
