FIFA 22, our guide to getting started on FUT

Whether you are new to the FIFA franchise or are a regular at FIFA Ultimate Team mode, here is our guide and advice for getting started on FUT when FIFA 22 is released. Thus, we will present the main choices to be made, DCEs to do's and don'ts as well as methods to earn credits quickly from the first days. So the goal is to start building your team, earning credits, and getting started for the year ahead.

Which nation to choose to start your FUT season?

The first major choice to be made in FUT mode will be to choose the nation for your starter pack. Indeed, EA offers you a fairly large pack including your first cards of the season. However, you must choose the main nationality making up this pack. Thus, you will have the choice between nearly a dozen nations to compose your very first team on FUT 22.

Our advice: Ignore the small nations and concentrate on the France, Brazil,England, even theSpain and l'Germany.

The advantage of these nations lies in the fact that they have many players in the various major championships but also that these nations are often useful in the first DCE (Team Creation Challenge) of FUT.

Also note that Brazil and France allow you to create formations with many different leagues, which will give you more freedom and flexibility to develop your first FUT formation.

As a reminder, Germany via the Bundesliga was very interesting last year, with cheaper prices than in the Premier League but much better DCE than for Serie A and La Liga. If this year, Ligue 1 and the Premier League will be very Meta via in particular the arrivals of the Mercato (both on the side of PSG and Manchester United), the prices of the best cards in these two leagues will be particularly high.

Content of the first packs: what to keep and sell quickly

So the main starter packs will be tied to the chosen nation and give you a lot of different cards. You will therefore have to choose and sort your cards in order to see your options for earning credits (see the following chapters).

Some tips :

  • Don't throw away any cards, even ones you can't trade
  • At the start, keep your cards to make the first available DCEs (see below)
  • As soon as the first DCEs are completed, sell your unusable player cards from major leagues and nations (including France, England, Germany and Brazil)
  • If you have a lot of luck and get a great card in the first few days (86+), wait a good week for prices to start rising to sell it. On the first day, no one will have money to buy it from you
  • Sell ​​your outfit and your icon if they are big nations/clubs (see below)

Overall, depending on the quality of the cards, you will have a few techniques to remember. Indeed, the Bronze cards are selling very well, put them on sale as soon as you can. Do not hesitate to consult the following paragraphs to find out how to earn FUT coins on FIFA 22.

How to identify a good card at the start of FIFA 22?

Identifying a good map and what makes a map Meta is the subject of another article on our site, but we'll cover the basics here. Overall, a Gold card will increase in value if it is playable. So, players usually favor stats like speed and physics to quickly determine if the card is usable in game or not.

Therefore, here are some examples of value to identify to know if a Gold player can be used in game in a starter team.

  • For a Scorer (BU): speed (overall), shooting, physique and to a lesser extent dribbling
  • For a Central Defender (CD): speed, defense and physicality

Thus, an attacker at 77 but who has a good level of speed (86+), a shooting value greater than 80 and a physique of 75 or + will be more interesting (and therefore expensive at the start of the game) than a another attacker with better passing, defending and dribbling skills but weaker on the three values ​​listed above.

Sometimes, some cards with 80 overall rating can see their price soar if the values ​​are placed optimally. Thus, on the past edition of FIFA, Mendy's card remained for almost two months above 80 credits (source in English). Besides his nationality and his club (France and Real Madrid) making it easy to link the card on different FUT formations, the overall stats of the card made him an excellent player on FIFA 000. Moreover, with 21 in skill moves and 4 in weak foot, the card is simply incredible at just 5 overall rating.

Therefore, several factors must be taken into account when assessing the value of a card:

  • The combination of its stats: favor values ​​according to the Meta of the game (especially speed)
  • Nationality and league: the more major nations and leagues you run, the higher the prize will be
  • The number of stars in technical gestures and weak foot: although secondary at the beginning, these elements will make the cards particularly attractive in key positions, especially in attack
  • Finally, traits are also a big plus, especially for a player on offense. Finesse shooting, outside of the foot or powerful head are effective traits sought after by the best FUT players in offensive positions.

Prepare your Starter Team and develop it

The idea of ​​a Starter team is to have a solid team, correct at each position, allowing you both to easily win your Team Battles but also to be able to face other players in Rivals.

Thus, we are not talking about players at 83+ (unless you have a large budget to spend on FIFA Points) but rather OR 75-81 cards that are quite Meta at the start of the game. We will list you in our various guides, examples of Starter Team OP on FIFA 22 FUT mode.

Developing your Starter Team is sometimes complicated because it requires changing 2-3 players to integrate an excellent card that you have just obtained, via the transfer market or weekly rewards (via Rivals or Team Clash). The general idea is to avoid buying cards on the market if they force you to change a large part of your team. If you're lucky enough to get high-value non-tradable cards, take your time integrating them.

Also favor your Chemistry level over your team's overall rating at the start. A chemistry of 100 will allow you to gain stat bonuses on all your cards rather than adding a card to 83 which will lower the chemistry by part of your 11.

Complete the first Basic and Advanced DCEs

These DCEs (team building challenges) are present from the launch of FIFA 22 on the FUT mode and will allow you to obtain credits as well as packs for cheap. The idea is to use your uninteresting cards to complete them for less. Also, completing them will allow you to advance in your basic FIFA 22 objectives, again giving you access to additional packs.

Therefore, learn to do them at a lower cost, using as many non-exchangeable cards as possible, from minor leagues (apart from the major championships) and if possible, from fairly weak nations.

Basic DCEs really don't require any thought, as long as you use the less interesting cards in your stash. However, you will then need to complete the Advanced DCEs. The latter are already more complex, since they include more criteria to complete them.

Avoid spending credits as much as possible to achieve them. You will find solutions and example solutions on, allowing you to reproduce a cheap solution.

Also note that it is important to open the packs obtained, because you will quickly run out of cards if you plan to store packs from the first days of play.

Install the FUT App to earn coins

In addition to the possibility of playing on the transfer market (see the following paragraph), the FIFA App allows you to regularly win gifts. Indeed, EA will reward you if you log in every day. So make a habit of logging in at 19:00 p.m. every evening (before going to to discover the new DCE solution) to potentially get a gift.

But it's also an opportunity to discover the daily objectives, which again can bring bonuses and exp for the FUT Season. Some Daily Challenges can be as simple as buying a player, often earning you more than you spent on a Bronze card.

The Fut Web App is available from September 22 for users of the FIFA Ultimate Team mode of FIFA 22.

How to earn credits on trading in the early days

It will be necessary to spend a lot of time on the app or on the game's transfer market in order to learn the value of the cards and seize the right opportunities. During the first few days, these techniques will take time and it is necessary to take your time. Also keep in mind that FIFA imposes a tax of 5% of the value of the card when sold. Pay attention to the prices so as not to lose money on resale.

Here are our tips and strategies based on card quality:

Fullerenes Rare Bronze Cards can be quite expensive if they allow you to complete team building challenges. The technique will therefore be to get your hands on Bronze cards at 150-200 credits, useful for the first DCEs of the season. Buy these cards at the minimum price to resell them for around 350-500 credits.

Fullerenes Silver cards only have value if they come from big leagues/nations. However, you can keep these cards to make DCEs, especially the Big Posters. Thus, everything depends on whether you can get your hands on cheap cards (below 400 credits) that will be used by other players to complete challenges. Mainly favor the cards of the 5 major championships and the main nations (France, Brazil, England, Germany, Italy, Spain, Portugal or even Argentina).

As regards the Common Gold cards, some have an interest if the values ​​are good. So if a full-back from a major league is fast, players are likely to seek him out for the first games of the season. Learn the value of these cards to snipe players at low cost to resell them for a little more. Be careful though, these probably the most risky technique.

As mentioned above, the cartes Or Rare and big cards should be saved for the early days of FIFA 22. Wait until prices start to rise nicely to put them on sale. Conversely, we do not recommend that you bet on high cards at the start. It is more interesting and less risky to bet 10 credits on 000 cards than 10 on one card.

Fullerenes equipment and outfits can be relatively expensive if you are lucky enough to get a shirt or an icon from a big club in your first pack. Thus, if your welcome pack offers you Manchester United, PSG, a major national team (Brazil, France, Germany) or even an important club in a European championship, select it to resell it immediately on the market. It's a way to earn a few thousand credits from launch, especially since these items will drop in price quickly in the weeks to come.

What game modes to play at the start of FIFA 22?

For once, this section is to be separated into two parts: if you start with the first 10 hours of play from September 22 or if you start the game after the 27 (pre-order) or October 1.

In the first situation, open your packs on the FUT Web App and avoid hanging around the game menu as much as possible during your 10 hours of play. 'Team for awards on Sunday night.

If your playing time is not limited, during the first weeks, favor the following game modes according to your level of play:

  • Team Clash, whatever your level of play, to achieve the objectives and also rank you on your 40 matches of the week for the Sunday evening rewards.
  • Rivals, if you enjoy playing against opponents. Even if your game level is limited, you can play Rivals for weekly rewards. Also, it is possible to play in duo, if you want to make this game mode more enjoyable.
  • Finally, in FUT Draft if your level of play is high. Indeed, the price of the token will be easily compensated if you consistently win 3-4 matches in this game mode. In addition, it will allow you to test and evaluate cards.

Do you have to buy FIFA Points to be good at FIFA 22 FUT mode?

For once, we consider that players are free to use their money as they want on a video game. In our case, we managed to get great teams and finish well in FUT Champions without spending a single euro last year on FIFA 21, but that requires farming the game and being able to trade regularly.

However, with the possibility of previewing its packs from the launch of FIFA 22, spending FIFA Points on profitable packs could be an effective and inexpensive alternative. Thus, if you consider that spending a hundred euros early in the game is profitable, prefer the use of preview packs and the arrival of OTWs to do so.

So much for our guide to get started on the FUT mode of FIFA 22. Do not hesitate to consult our FIFA portal to discover all the DCE solutions as well as advice for investing, creating your starter team but also follow the news and the TOTWs of the game.
