Quelle surprise! Ultimate Team has FIFA 23 Coins received the most attention, and the group training mode I've desired has come with FUT Moments. Moments provides bite-sized pockets of FIFA games as well as challenging challenges that examine your form and figure out how different cards can work together.
The game is still in its early stages however there's huge potential for capturing the player's career and recreate a storied moment in football's past with this method. The current collection contains highlights from the glorious times of Jurgen Klopp as well as Kylian Mbappe. But in the next game, it'll be amazing to see what EA's team could do with other legendary football players such as Pele and "King" Kazuyoshi Miura.
Furthermore, there are radical changes to the chemistry system. Chemistry does not have to be influenced by a player's position in the formation compared to other players. It's which allows for greater diversity between nations and leagues. I'm not sure it's going to change anyone's strategy too much however it's great to know that you're able throw in wildcard players and have more ways to connect them to top-division players.
Looking for the perfect midfielder who can hit that sought-after "33" chemistry, feels similar to playing a Squad Building Challenge now, which is a little naive. Squad Building Challenges remain good ways to kill a few hours doing frankly nothing, but EA's 'sudoku for football nerds' best played via the companion app, far from Ultimate Team's sluggish console menus.
In a grim signpost to the football game licensing wars to be in the near future, FIFA has lost the J1 League license this year, which meant no more King Kazu. The result was the pivot to the exciting Bronze and Silver Australian A League team, featuring the feared striking force that is Hibs forward Martin Boyle and the aptly named David Ball. Similar to last time, my underdog team caused a few rage quits from rivals sporting million-coin outfits which exposed Ultimate Team as FUT 23 Coins buy a gilded farce.
