EA is having to change the way FIFA Ultimate Team works because of the coronavirus outbreak – and it’s looking to the past for inspiration.
Normally, EA runs Team of the Week promotions in which new cards are introduced into packs based on the outstanding performance of real players. These new cards have fancy designs, and boosted stats to reflect the real players’ good form.
But with football off for the foreseeable future across the world, EA no longer has real players to base Team of the Week cards upon. So it’s ditched Team of the Week for the foreseeable, replacing it with a new promotion called Team of the Week Moments.
