The FIFA 13 Ultimate Team Of The Year FAQ

This is futguide.com’s attempt to clear up much of the misinformation and dispel much of the rumour-mongering around the FUT13 TOTY!

When is the FIFA 13 TOTY release date?

The TOTY will be released after the January 7th announcement of the FIFPro World XI, no one but EA knows the exact release date or how it will be released.

What is the FIFA 13 TOTY?

The TOTY is a special issue of in-form (IF) players that coincides with the World XI announcement by FIFpro (the FIFA professionals association AKA professional footballers from around the world).

Who Will Be In The FIFA 13 TOTY?

EA can not announce the TOTY until the World XI is announced, so there is no way anyone (including EA themselves) knows who is in the TOTY, nor can EA release a TOTY before January 7th, contrary to some forumers’ belief!

The TOTY itself is comprised of the 11 winning nominations from a World XI shortlist of 55 players in a 4-3-3 formation:

From the official voting procedures:

In December all ballots that have been returned, have been counted. FIFPro staff will compose the team: the goal keeper with the most votes will be picked, the same goes for the four defenders, three midfielders and three forwards. The new FIFA FIFPro World XI has been selected!

Who is on the World XI Shortlist?

Goalkeepers: 

Gianluigi Buffon (Italy, Juventus), Iker Casillas (Spain, Real Madrid), Petr ?ech(Czech Republic, Chelsea), Joe Hart (England, Manchester City), Manuel Neuer (Germany, Bayern Munich)

 Defenders: 

Jordi Alba (Spain, Barcelona), Gareth Bale (Wales, Tottenham Hotspur), Giorgio Chiellini (Italy, Juventus), Ashley Cole (England, Chelsea), Dani Alves (Brazil, Barcelona),David Luiz (Brazil, Chelsea), Patrice Evra (France, Manchester United), Rio Ferdinand(England, Manchester United), Mats Hummels (Germany, Borussia Dortmund), Branislav Ivanovic (Serbia, Chelsea), Vincent Kompany (Belgium, Manchester City), Philipp Lahm(Germany, Bayern Munich), Marcelo (Brazil, Real Madrid), Javier Mascherano (Argentina, Barcelona), Pepe (Portugal, Real Madrid), Gerard Piqué (Spain, Barcelona), Carles Puyol(Spain, Barcelona), Sergio Ramos (Spain, Real Madrid), John Terry (England, Chelsea),Thiago Silva (Brazil, Paris St-Germain)

 Midfielders:

Xabi Alonso (Spain, Real Madrid), Sergio Busquets (Spain, Barcelona), Cesc Fabregas (Spain, Barcelona), Steven Gerrard (England, Liverpool), Eden Hazard (Belgium, Chelsea), Andrés Iniesta (Spain, Barcelona), Frank Lampard (England, Chelsea), Luka Modric (Croatia, Real Madrid),  Mesut Özil (Germany, Real Madrid), Andrea Pirlo (Italy, Juventus), Franck Ribéry (France, Bayern Munich), David Silva (Spain, Manchester City),Bastian Schweinsteiger (Germany, Bayern Munich), Yaya Touré (Ivory Coast, Manchester City), Xavi Hernández (Spain, Barcelona)

 Forwards: 

Sergio Agüero (Argentina, Manchester City), Mario Balotelli (Italy, Manchester City),Karim Benzema (France, Real Madrid), Edinson Cavani (Uruguay, AS Napoli), Didier Drogba(Ivory Coast, Shanghai Shenhua), Samuel Eto’o (Cameroon, Anzhi Makhachkala), Radamel Falcao (Colombia, Atlético Madrid), Mario Gomez (Germany, Bayern Munich), Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Sweden, Paris Saint-Germain), Lionel Messi (Argentina, Barcelona), Neymar(Brazil, Santos), Robin van Persie (The Netherlands, Manchester United), Cristiano Ronaldo(Portugal, Real Madrid), Wayne Rooney (England, Manchester United), Luis Suarez(Uruguay, Liverpool).

How come (insert player name) isn’t in the TOTY?

I read many TOTY predictions each day on the EA forums and on blogs but most fail to recognize one of the most crucial factors in deciding the TOTY – it is a vote. The FIFPro association numbers +50,000 professional footballers. These footballers fill in a handwritten ballot and return it to FIFPro.

Think about this.

If you are a professional footballer from Chile, Japan or Cameroon, which league do you think is most prominent in the media? The BPL or Liga do Brasil? Liga BBVA or the Russian Premier League? Look at the real ballot below from a Cameroonian footballer. There is a reason why every World XI is almost exclusively comprised of players from a select few teams. These FIFPro footballers watch the same games on TV that your average FIFA 13 player watches! That means this is a pure popularity contest. Those clubs/players that are always on TV or other media get the lion’s share of votes.

How Will EA Release The TOTY?

An example of EA’s communication issues last TOTY – EASPORTSFIFA announces on Twitter that FUT12 TOTY defenders would only be available for two days…

No one knows how EA will handle it this year but let us look back at how they did it previous years.

In FUT12, the 2011 TOTY was released by EA in batches over the following days after the announcement.

TOTY GK + Defenders were released first, then TOTY Midfielders and finally the TOTY Strikers. Each TOTY release had a two day window of availability.

In FUT11, the 2010 TOTY was released as an additional TOTW alongside the existing TOTW – yes, two TOTWs in one week!

Let’s hope EA doesn’t mess up the TOTY releases like they did last year (EA kept changing their minds on the release dates and how long each TOTY would stay in packs):

EASPORTSFIFA TOTY1

WTF EA? Until Sunday? Or tomorrow? EA gets confused on the availability of FUT12 TOTY defenders

No really, tell me when the TOTY is released and who is in it!

Okay, you want a real answer?*

TOTY will be announced immediately following the World XI announcement (very late night January 7th GMT).

It will be available 12am Tuesday GMT (January 8th) -edit: or if it follows TOTW releases, 6PM GMT pm on January 8th.

What format (batches or whole TOTY released at once) EA use, I can’t even speculate. For example, if EA wanted to really milk TOTY, they could do a TOTY player per day. But if I were EA, I’d look to maximise revenue by ensuring that the biggest hitters (TOTY Messi and TOTY Ronaldo), were available during the peak day of the week (Friday evening GMT).

Who will be in the TOTY?

Spain won the EURO 2012 Cup, Italy were runners up. Barcelona and Real Madrid had a fantastic Liga BBVA season.  Chelsea won the Champion’s League (Bayern Munich runner’s up). City, Borussia Dortmund and Juventus won their respective leagues.

The 23 man Ballon D’or shortlist for the World Footballer of the Year also gives us some clues:

Men’s shortlists for the FIFA Ballon d’Or gala 2012 
The following 23 men (in alphabetical order) are in contention for the FIFA Ballon d’Or 2012:

Sergio Agüero (Argentina), Xabi Alonso (Spain),Mario Balotelli (Italy), Karim Benzema (France), Gianluigi Buffon (Italy), Sergio Busquets (Spain), Iker Casillas (Spain), Cristiano Ronaldo (Portugal), Didier Drogba (Côte d’Ivoire), Radamel Falcao (Colombia), Zlatan Ibrahimović (Sweden), Andrés Iniesta (Spain), Lionel Messi (Argentina), Manuel Neuer (Germany), Neymar (Brazil), Mesut Özil (Germany), Gerard Piqué (Spain), Andrea Pirlo (Italy),
Sergio Ramos (Spain), Wayne Rooney (England), Yaya Touré (Côte d’Ivoire), Robin van Persie (Netherlands), Xavi (Spain).

Similarly, the UEFA Best Player in Europe award is another big clue (voted by leading journalists in Europe):

  • 1 Iniesta
  • 2 Messi
  • 3 Ronaldo
  • 4 Andrea Pirlo (ITA) – Juventus (90 points)
  • 5 Xavi Hernández (ESP) – FC Barcelona (57)
  • 6 Iker Casillas (ESP) – Real Madrid CF (53)
  • 7 Didier Drogba (CIV) – Chelsea FC* (31)
  • 8= Petr Čech (CZE) – Chelsea FC (14)
  • 8= Falcao (COL) – Club Atlético de Madrid (14)
  • 10 Mesut Özil (GER) – Real Madrid CF (10)

From everything above, I’d say we will expect to see an extremely similar line-up to TOTY 12.

100%: Casillas, Xavi, Iniesta, Messi, Ronaldo are certainties once again

90%+: Ramos, Pique and Pirlo are almost locks too

Unknown: 1x Forward: Falcao or Ibrahimovic?

Unknown: 2x Defenders: Dani Alves, Chiellini, Kompany, Puyol or Alba?

This is my World XI prediction: Casillas, Ramos, Pique, Dani Alves, Kompany, Xavi, Iniesta, Pirlo, Messi, Ronaldo and Ibrahimovic.

Ibra over Falcao due to his exploits during the balloting process (4 goals vs. England and scoring rampage occurred during Nov-12) while Pirlo’s magnificent Euro campaign and Juve title squeezes him in ahead of Xabi Alonso (Euro and Liga winner).

*These are my best guesses.

FIFA 12 TOTY FAQ – When Should You Buy Packs & TOTY Players?

9 Jan

Last updated: 20:00 GMT, 11/01/2012 (EA Sports changes mind again, adds Week 18 TOTW to the TOTY Midfielders release)

Updated: 12:00 GMT, 11/1/2012 (EA Sports changes mind, defenders only in packs until Wednesday night)

Updated: 2:04 GMT, 10/01/2012 (added price predictions, when to buy packs)

Most of you have read the 2011 FIFA Team of the Year World XI announcement and seen the subsequent release of the FIFA TOTY defenders and GK on FIFA 12 Ultimate Team.

Here are some answers to an ongoing FIFA 12 Ultimate Team TOTY FAQ – I’ll keep this post updated as the rest of the players are released.

Q: How Long Will The TOTY World XI Midfielders Be Available?

No official statement yet but it will most likely be for two days, which means Friday 6PM GMT should see the release of the TOTY Forwards.

Q: How Long Will The TOTY World XI Defenders Be Available?

And they’re gone. TOTY Defenders are no longer available in packs…

Update: EA Sports announced that the World XI Defenders will only be available until Wednesday night 6PM GMT!!

According to @EASPORTSFIFA, the defenders will be in packs until the 15th of January:

Q: How Much Will The TOTY Defenders Cost (XBOX)?

Update: With the Wednesday night 6pm deadline, people have realized that these defenders will be scarcer than first anticipated. If EA Sports sticks to the same duration of two days for the release of the TOTY midfielders and forwards, prices will remain high due to relative scarcity.

Within hours of launch there are already dozens of  TOTY defenders available. Expect a substantial markdown as we move through the week, with more tasty TOTY midfielders and forwards to be released competing with more and more TOTY defenders on the auction block.

Let’s look at current prices and some predictions for week’s end:

IF Dani Alves is already down to BIN 750K (as at 1:49 GMT). By Sunday, I’d expect to see him down to at least 500K.

IF Pique is at BIN 560K (1:49 GMT). By Sunday, down around ~375K.

IF Ramos is at BIN 500K (2:00 GMT). Sunday? ~350K (I think investing in 86 rated IF Ramos @CB – currently 240K BIN is much nicer, because as RB he’ll be competing with TOTY Alves)

IF Vidic is at BIN 900K (2:04 GMT). Sunday should see him drop down to ~650K or thereabouts.

Note: Technically, day 1 isn’t over yet, so these price predictions might be slightly off.

Q: So When Should I Buy TOTY Players?

As with all TOTWs, the best time to purchase players is at the end of the week when the prices are lowest.

Prices drop because there are a glut of TOTY players on the market and only so many coins and buyers to go around. The price drop for IF players by the end of its release (7 days) varies but ranges from approximately 25% to 35% of the average day 1 value.

For example, SIF Nani’s price trend looks like this, with a day 1 price of 325K and a day 7 price of 218K, a 33% drop.

Q: When Should I Open Packs?

Updated: With the release of the Week 18 TOTW, you now have the change of landing a 89-SIF Silva in addition to the TOTY midfielders. Hope you saved some coins!

If you must open packs, open them when all of the TOTY World XI and the Week 18 TOTW are available to maximize your chances of landing an IF. Also watch out for Happy Hour announcements on Twitter or in-game, as the TOTY and TOTW are seeded more commonly (purported double odds). Happy Hour usually occurs twice on the main matchday, with a 4PM London and a 4PM New York Happy Hour.

 

Q: What Are The Chances of Pulling a TOTY Player?

@TheRealGraoully confirmed the odds of pulling a TOTY IF are much lower than pulling a regular TOTW IF:
What are the odds of pulling a TOTY IF

The extreme rarity of TOTY IFs is somewhat offset by the sheer number of people opening packs.

Good luck everyone!

FUT 12 TOTY – Last Minute Predictions for the World XI!

9 Jan

With just hours until to the FIFA World XI announcement, what are your last minute predictions?

The Certainties

It’s a given that the three FIFA Ballon d’Or nominees for the player of the year will be in the World XI, so let’s lock in Xavi, Cristiano Ronaldo and the favorite, Lionel Messi.

The Must Haves

Almost 100% locked in are the Barcelona mainstays of the all-conquering 2011 team. This includes Gerard Pique, Dani Alves and Andres Iniesta. The likes of Abidal, Puyol and Villa have been ruled out for various reasons related to form, injury and popularity.

The Best of the Rest

Browsing around the web, the rest of the positions are more contested so I’ll list what apper to be the more popular picks. Hopefully this is a good representation of what the World XI voters, the 55,000+ players in FIFA-recognized football associations, have picked. It’s a popularity contest, folks!

Robin Van Persie – the final forward spot should be RvPs – the only other strikers in contention are Cavani and Rooney

David Silva – with the popularity of the Barclays Premier League, he seems to have picked up a lot more coverage than the likes of Xabi Alonso, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Mezut Ozil

Thiago Silva – The standout defender in the best defensive team in Serie A, only hampered by being in a slightly less prominent league than La Liga or the BPL

Vincent Kompany – Very close between Kompany and Vidic  for the Premier League’s best defender of 2011. I just wonder if  the consistent Kompany’s recent form (the red card in yesterday’s FA Cup tie notwithstanding) will pip out Vidic, captain of the Premier League winner and Champion’s League finalist.

Iker Casillas – How many of you remember Neuer’s incredible early 2011 run? Not many, I guess. How many remember Edwin Van Der Sar’s epic form in the run-in to the Red Devil’s title win? Casillas two biggest rivals have not been in the media spotlight in the latter half of 2011, which should get Casillas over the line to his third consecutive World XI squad.

The FIFA TOTY World XI for 2011?

World XI TOTY FUT 12

What does the World XI mean for FIFA 12 Ultimate Team (FUT) players?

EA Sports will release their own FUT TOTY soon after FIFA’s official announcement. This very special team can then be found in Ultimate Team’s packs alongside this week’s team of the week (TOTW).

Preparation for FUT 12’s TOTY has gathered steam in the last few weeks, with TOTY strategies and tactics popping up in the official forum and FIFA Ultimate Team communities around the web as FUT players eagerly await the TOTY release to open thousands of packs for the slim chance of pulling a special TOTY In Form (IF) version of the World XI squad.

How To Make Coin in a FUT 12 TOTY Market Crash

With thousands upon thousands of packs, there will be an excess supply of cards from gold packs being auctioned. This oversupply will bring down the prices of every card in the gold pack economy.

Some of the few possible coin making tactics in this situation are:

  • Silvers and bronze cards that are relatively undersupplied
  • Unloading (hopefully stockpiled) IF players from previous weeks, as the lucky World XI owners seek to build and complete new teams around their shiny new TOTY IFs
  • Bidding on World XIs with coins rather than using coins to open packs – it is well known (but not well-documented) that using coins to buy IF players is almost certainly more profitable in the long run than opening packs. The problem is, opening packs is extremely addictive (with most forms of gambling, a happy chemical known as dopamine is released in the brain when we find a great card), however, as with all gambling, the house usually wins*.
  • Smart trade offers, that let you trade ‘low’ but sell high at a later date. For example, some IFs were released with what appears to be very average statistics, but some particular factor makes them more valuable in the long run – they might have some hidden statistics (IF Mulgrew’s incredible passing and shooting attributes for a centreback), or allow certain hybrid teams to be created (Inter’s Phillipe Coutinho links BraSilvers with Serie A Silvers) or they might be the best possible player at their position (IF Marcelo and IF Micah Richards)

Don’t forget to catch the live countdown on the official FIFA World XI page: http://www.fifa.com/ballondor/world11/index.html

Get the latest update on the FUT 12 TOTY release here: @EASportsFIFA and @TheRealGraoully (FUT12’s Willy Wonka, producer of IF cards).

Of course, please follow me for your latest FUT related tweets: @FantasyScout

*I’ll post some data on buying vs. opening packs later, but it is enough to say for now, EA Sports will almost certainly be seeding these TOTY IF cards at lower rate than usual TOTWs, which makes pulling them even harder than pulling their normal versions, which are already some of the rarest cards on the market

Predicting FIFA12 TOTY Prices

6 Jan

FIFA11 Ultimate Team World XI TOTY Price Predictions?

Here are a few thoughts on the prices of the TOTY players following a quick discussion over at the EA forums:

WarriorFFC wrote: What do you guys think TOTY prices will end up at? I can’t for the life of me remember how much they went for the last day they were in packs (usually the cheapest day).

For example, assuming the following players are in TOTY, what do you think they’ll be.

My predictions for FIFA 12 TOTY prices

(XBOX):

  • TIF Messi – 4.5M
  • SIF Ronaldo – 4.0M
  • TIF RVP – 900K
  • SIF Xabi – 400K
  • IF Pique – 800K
  • IF Alves- 1.6M
  • SIF Iniesta – 3.0M
  • IF Xavi – 2.0M

How were these TOTY prices estimated?

Estimates are based on FIFA 11 Ultimate Team data. In FIFA 11, the TOTY version of a player ended up roughly 20x the price of the regular version and 150-250% of the TOTW version (http://ultimatedb.nl should have more accurate data). For example:

(Name/Rating/Price/Category)

  • Maicon 85 44202 Regular
  • Maicon (IF1) 89 798,000 Team of the Year
  • Wesley Sneijder 86 12748 Regular
  • Wesley Sneijder (IF1) 89 340,000 Team of the Year
  • Wesley Sneijder (IF2) 88 152474 TOTW 16 – 9 February
  • Lúcio 85 27167 Regular
  • Lúcio (IF1) 88 419238 TOTW 1 – 27 October
  • Lúcio (IF2) 89 643,400 Team of the Year

Notes

The most important caveats are that these predictions are based on prices for FIFA 11 TOTY and that these FIFA 11 prices were after the prices had had half a year to settle down. During the week of the actual FIFA 12 TOTY, I’d expect the prices to be much higher than these predictions. The prices will also deviate depending on the individual upgrade that each TOTY player receives.

A final thought on TOTY prices:
Consider how much would you be willing to pay for TOTY players and then compare that to the amount of coins you plan on spending to open packs. It might be more prudent (thought certainly less fun) to stave off opening packs and just buy the TOTY player(s) outright.
What do you think?

Preparing for FIFA 12’s Ultimate Team Of The Year (TOTY)

30 Dec

Every year, FIFA awards a World XI of the year in January, known as the FIFPro World XI. During the week the FIFPro World XI is announced, EA Sports releases its own Team of the Year for its FIFA 12 Ultimate Team mode.

With 11 World XI in-form (IF) players in addition to the regularly scheduled team of the week (TOTW), how should you prepare for this perfect storm of IF players?

What happens pre-TOTY?

A popular tactic pre-TOTY is to sell as many of your players as possible. Why? Because the market WILL become oversupplied by the sheer number of people opening packs. Every person who got MSP, PSN dollars or Christmas money will be opening up packs and placing non-IF players on the auction house. With excess supply, market prices for players will drop, so the key is to start selling as soon as possible. While it may be difficult to accept selling Gareth Bale for half the price that you paid for him two months ago, his sale could let you purchase an additional 2 jumbo packs during TOTY week and you’ll be able to buy him back later for an even cheaper price.

You may also want to sell your IFs that are likely to be in the World XI. This is trickier to predict, so let’s have a look at the FIFPro World XI shortlist.

The 55-player shortlist in full (home country, current club) is: 

Goalkeepers: Gianluigi Buffon (Italy, Juventus), Iker Casillas (Spain, Real Madrid), Manuel Neuer (Germany, Bayern Munich), Víctor Valdes (Spain, Barcelona), Edwin van der Sar (Netherlands, retired, formerly Manchester United).

Defenders: Eric Abidal (France, Barcelona), Dani Alves (Brazil, Barcelona), Ricardo Carvalho (Portugal, Real Madrid), Ashley Cole (England, Chelsea), Patrice Evra (France, Manchester United), Rio Ferdinand (England, Manchester United), Vincent Kompany (Belgium, Manchester City), Philipp Lahm (Germany, Bayern Munich), Lucio (Brazil, Internazionale), David Luiz (Brazil, Chelsea), Maicon (Brazil, Internazionale), Marcelo (Brazil, Real Madrid), Alessandro Nesta (Italy, AC Milan), Pepe (Portugal, Real Madrid), Gerard Piqué (Spain, Barcelona), Carles Puyol (Spain, Barcelona), Sergio Ramos (Spain, Real Madrid), Thiago Silva (Brazil, AC Milan), John Terry (England, Chelsea), Nemanja Vidic (Serbia, Manchester United).

Midfielders: Xabi Alonso (Spain, Real Madrid), Gareth Bale (Wales, Tottenham Hotspur), Sergio Busquets (Spain, Barcelona), Cesc Fabregas (Spain, Barcelona), Andres Iniesta (Spain, Barcelona), Kaka (Brazil, Real Madrid), Frank Lampard (England, Chelsea), Nani (Portugal, Manchester United), Mesut Ozil (Germany, Real Madrid), Andrea Pirlo (Italy, Juventus), Bastian Schweinsteiger (Germany, Bayern Munich), David Silva (Spain, Manchester City), Wesley Sneijder (Netherlands, Internazionale), Yaya Toure (Côte d’Ivoire, Manchester City), Xavi (Spain, Barcelona).

Forwards: Sergio Aguero (Argentina, Manchester City), Karim Benzema (France, Real Madrid), Edinson Cavani (Uruguay, Napoli), Didier Drogba (Côte d’Ivoire, Chelsea), Samuel Eto’o (Cameroon, Anzhi), Radamel Falcao (Colombia, Atletico Madrid), Mario Gomez (Germany, Bayern Munich), Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Sweden, AC Milan), Lionel Messi (Argentina, Barcelona), Neymar (Brazil, Santos), Cristiano Ronaldo (Portugal, Real Madrid), Wayne Rooney (England, Manchester Utd), Luis Suarez (Uruguay, Liverpool), Robin van Persie (Netherlands, Arsenal), David Villa (Spain, Barcelona).

It’s almost a certainty that Messi and Ronaldo will be in the TOTY, which leaves 9 more spots in the TOTY.

Let’s look around the web to see what others have predicted:

Saura Bhattacharjee from Bleacher Report:

  • GK: Iker Casillas
  • Defenders: Alves, Ramos, Pique, Cole
  • Midfielders: Xavi, Busquets, Iniesta
  • Forwards: Ibrahimovic, Messi, Ronaldo

Jordan Grangruth from SportsMinds:

  • GK: Iker Casillas
  • Defenders: Alves, Terry, Pique, Lahm
  • Midfielders: Xavi, Xabi Alonso, Iniesta
  • Forwards: RvP, Messi, Ronaldo

And my own predictions:

  • GK: Iker Casillas
  • Defenders: Alves, Silva, Pique, Kompany
  • Midfielders: Xavi, Xabi Alonso, Iniesta
  • Forwards: RvP, Messi, Ronaldo

Of my picks, Silva, Xabi, RvP, Messi and Ronaldo already have IFs.

So get out there and make some coin before FIFA 12’s TOTY drops!

Updated: 2nd January 2012

With the recent release of Jumbo Premium Player packs during Happy Hour, plus the 4 free packs for Season Ticket holders and the pre-TOTY selloff, the market has effectively crashed. Prices for Not In Form (NIF) cards have fallen at least 25%. Nevertheless, you should continue selling regular cards in the lead up to the TOTY announcement on the 9th January 2012.

Additional Pre-TOTY Tips

  • Tip #1: If you are Season Ticket subscriber, hold on to your free packs and open them after the TOTY is announced, four extra packs for TOTY!
  • Tip #2: If you want to satisfy your pack opening itch, stick to silver and bronze packs, as their market prices are largely unaffected by any excess supply of gold packs
  • Tip #3: Similarly, IFs that are unlikely TOTY candidates are also a sound investment, as their price generally trends upwards
