For a long time, a certain trend in FIFA games has been clearly visible – almost every week, Electronic Arts funds players with special cards. The “Rebels” event is now ending in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team. As we could find out from the loading screens appearing in the game for several days, his place will be taken by another event called “Road to the Final”. It will start on November 6 at 19.00.
An analogously named event has already taken place in FIF 20, so on this basis we can conclude that the new event is directly related to the simultaneous matches of the Champions League. A dozen or so selected players who excelled in the group stage of the competition will receive special cards with a design referring to the Champions League. RTTF (Road to the Final) player cards differ significantly from the basic ones. They have increased stats, but the most important thing about them is that each time a player’s team advances one round, his overall rating will increase. So if, for example, Erling Haaland receives an RTTF card rated at 88 points, then after his club (Borussia Dortmund) leaves the group, it will be raised to 89. Similarly, if Borussia wins in the 1/8 finals, Haaland will already have 90 ” overalla ”, and if BVB also wins in the 1/4 finals, then 91 more and more until the final of the tournament.
Over the course of the event, there will likely be a dozen or so “Road to the Finals” cards, which can be found in packs or obtained through Squad Building Challenges and Weekly Events. Thanks to the EA Sports Twitter post, we learned that the first Road to the Final card will be given to a player from the winning team in the match between Real Madrid and Inter Milan in the Champions League. The meeting was won by the team from the Spanish capital, so The player to receive a special RTTF card, available through Squad Building Challenges, is Real Madrid midfielder Isco.
FIFA 21 debuted on PC, Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch on October 9 this year. On December 4, 2020, it will go to PS5 and Xbox Series X. The new generation version is to feature much better and more realistic graphics.
