Quelle surprise! Ultimate Team has FIFA 23 Coins received the highest amount of attention. Additionally, the team training mode that I’ve desired has come in the form of FUT Moments. Moments provides bite-sized pockets of FIFA games that reward players with challenging challenges that test your shape and figure out how different cards can work together.
It’s still early days however there’s huge potential to document the careers of players and recreate immortal moments of football’s history by using this mode. The current game features highlights from the golden years that included Jurgen Klopp as well as Kylian Mbappe. However, in the next game, it’ll be thrilling to see how EA’s team will do together with other greats of the game like Pele and “King” Kazuyoshi Miura.
Elsewhere, there are sweeping changes to the chemical system. Chemistry is no longer affected by the position of a player in the formation relative to other players. It’s it allows more diversity across leagues and nations. I don’t think it will alter the strategy of any player, but it’s nice knowing that you can add wildcard players and have more ways for them to be connected to top division players.
Finding the ideal midfielder to hit that coveted “33”-like chemistry feels much like playing a Squad Building Challenge now, which is a little naive. Squad Building Challenges are still an ideal way to pass a few hours doing frankly nothing. However, EA’s’sudoku for football fans’ is best played with the companion app, away from the slow menus for consoles.
As a grim signpost of the football game licensing battles to come, FIFA has lost the J1 League license this year meaning no more King Kazu. In the end, it was an abrupt change to an exciting Bronze as well as Silver Australian A League team, featuring the feared strike force of Hibs forward Martin Boyle and the aptly named David Ball. Similar to last year, my underdog team caused some angry quits from FUT 23 Coins buy teams sporting million-coin costumes, exposing Ultimate Team as a gilded farce.
