Selection of the best FIFA 18 tips everyone should follow

Here are the 30 best FIFA 18 tips we selected especially for the first days of the game.


✅ Take a few minutes to think which edition you will buy. The standard edition is good enough for most of the players. Do you really don’t mind to pay more ‘just’ to play three days earlier and receive a few packs that most likely will not add anything to your team?

✅ If you have an active EA Access or Origin Access subscription don’t forget that you will be able to play FIFA 18 earlier (September 21). Use your ten hours wisely and double check if you exit the game when you are not playing it.

✅ Don’t forget to redeem every single daily gift EA gives you in the first days. Each day you miss, it is one pack less you get.

✅ Complete all objectives as soon as possible. We never know when will be your lucky day…

✅ If you don’t mind spending real money, buy FIFA Points as soon as they are released. They are more valuable in the first days. The market tends to depreciate over time.

✅ If you don’t have enough FIFA experience, watch the in-game tutorials, read our gameplay guides, practice in the arena and complete all the skill games.

✅ Even if you are an experienced FIFA player, let the ‘Trainer’ turned on in your first matches. It will be useful to get used to the new movements.

✅ Apply the 99 contracts item on a good player that you don’t plan to sell in the coming weeks.

✅ Buy all the loan players items available in the EAS FC catalogue and use them.

✅ Buy all the coin boost items before you start playing matches. You can not waste coins in the first days.

✅ Ask your friends to offer you the EAS FC items you want and do the same to them. Both will pay 50% less.

✅ As soon as they are affordable, buy managers enough to reach the 50% bonus and pay the lowest price possible for them.

✅ Use the Concept Squad to plan your team, instead of doing it on an external squad builder.

✅ Don’t focus on building a top team on the first day. Try to build a weaker team in which players could be used as substitutes or reserves in your final team.

✅ Choose players according to their stats (and not by their rating), their positions, the squad formation and the chemistry.

✅ Pick the players with the highest pace and physical stats. Their prices are always the ones that go up faster.

✅ Focus on building only one team. In the beginning, you should only spend your resources on what is strictly necessary. Other teams, badges and kits can be bought later in the game.

✅ Sell everything you own and build a team from scratch. Be persistent and avoid discarding items that can be sold for a higher price. You can also use your unwanted items to submit the first SBCs available.

✅ Use all the contracts of untradeable players.

✅ Keep trading simple: buy low, sell higher. It works with almost every card. It’s a matter of time and patience.

✅ Play with the fact that most of the prices will go up. They only go down a few weeks later.

✅ Pay attention to the market, especially in high traffic hours on the release date. Many people will be opening packs and selling the unwanted cards at really good prices.

✅ Never invest everything you have. Always put a few coins aside. The good deals come when least expected.

✅ If you got a top player in a pack, wait a few days to monetize him.

✅ Don’t waste your coins buying packs. The chances of pulling something good are really low.

✅ Don’t buy IF cards. Leave them for later. You have tons of good regular cards to try out first.

✅ Play your first games on a low difficulty level and focus on adapting to the new gameplay. If you feel that you are better than your opponents, play Draft to get good rewards.

✅ If you feel confident, play the Weekend League. It is by far the game mode with the best rewards.

✅ If you have started FUT 18 in the middle of the season, wait until TOTY or TOTS weeks to buy the players you want. The prices will be much lower.

✅ Never forfeit. It will ruin your %DNF and you will receive less coins in the end of each match.


If you follow these selection of the best FIFA 18 tips, we are sure that you will have a season plenty of success.

  1. Hey i packed ozil with a welcome back pack am i better to hold on to him for a few more days or try sell him now? And also i was wondering if you are planning on doing an article on reading the market behaviour and the best times to buy and sell week to week?

    1. Hi. If you believe he has the skills that most of the community loves, then it is better to hold him a few more time. During the first Weekend League, he will be more expensive.
      We already released a few articles these days about trading. Our plan is to have someone in our team just doing this but we are still looking.
