FIFA Winter Upgrades FAQ
- Upgrades will be applied to NEW non-in-form players found in packs. Non-IF players that are already in your Club will not receive an upgrade.
- If an upgraded player’s new OVR rating is equal to or surpasses his existing first in-form’s rating, his IF cards will be upgraded accordingly.
- If an upgraded player’s new OVR rating does not equal or surpass his existing in-form’s rating, his IFs will not receive upgrades. (Ex: Bolasie has been upgraded from 76 to 79 OVR, therefore his 80 OVR IF will not receive an upgrade)
- However, if an upgraded player with an existing IF gets upgraded across Quality tiers (eg. Silver to Gold), his lower-quality IF will not be upgraded. This preserves the in-form’s high value. (Ex: Ighalo has been upgraded to a Gold, but his existing silver IF will not receive an upgrade and will remain Silver.)
