What is the EAS FC
EA Sports Football Club is FIFA’s social network. It the heartbeat of FIFA and it becomes more connected and more social.
It connects you to all of your FIFA friends and shares your successes and accomplishments with them via an in-game news and alerts feed. The ability to send gifts or messages to them is back as well as the ability to go directly to different areas of the game directly from the news and alerts feed. This means that everyone is connected to friends in FIFA like never before. It also tracks progress through the game by awarding you with XP and Football Club Credits, which allow you to redeem hundreds of in-game un-lockable items to enhance your FIFA experience.
The EA Sports Football Club experience doesn’t just start and end on your console. When you’re not playing the game, you have the ability to stay connected to all of your friends FIFA activity on the EA Sports Football Club companion app and on the EA Sports Football Club website. This means your FIFA experience can stay with you wherever they are.
What is the EAS FC Catalogue
There is a 2000 XP daily limit
Now that you already know what is the EA Sports Football Club, we will focus on the EAS FC Catalogue. It is a kind of store where you can trade the FCC (Football Club Credits) earned with hundreds of items.
The EAS FC Catalogue houses hundreds of different in-game unlockable items that help improve your FIFA experience. Your EA Sports Football Club Level determines which ones are available for you to redeem. As a Level 20 gamer, you’ll only have access to items categorized from Level 1 to 20. So, the more you play and level up will give you access to more unlockable items. Use the FCC you’ve earned through your play to redeem the items for use. Items include things like goal celebrations, historic kits, extra matches in Seasons and coin boosts in Ultimate Team.
The EAS FC Catalogue was initially created for FIFA 13 Ultimate Team. It was the way that EA found to reward you by your FIFA time play. Until there, your progression could be tracked by your level XP but it was useless. With the addiction of EAS FC Catalogue, you have more reasons to play the game because your efforts are rewarded with unlockable items.
In FIFA 14 the biggest addition to the EAS FC Catalogue was the feature that allows you to send gifts to friends. But things did not go well. EA Sports have disabled the most popular and most wanted item of the EAS FC catalogue, the FUT Coin Reward Boosts, because thousands of players have exploited a glitch that allow them to earn much more coins than it was supposed to give. The item was unavailable for five months, between October 2013 and February 2014.
In FIFA 15 the coin boost were back again but without the feature to send gifts. The biggest addition of last year was probably the loan players item that gives you the chance to try top players in your Ultimate Team squad.
The EAS FC Catalogue has many items for the different game modes
How EAS FC Catalogue works
As we have said, you need two things to redeem items from the EAS FC Catalogue on FIFA 16 Ultimate Team: EAS FC Level and FC Credits.
- EAS FC Level
No matter what game mode you’re in, there are numerous things you can do to be automatically awarded with XP (Experience Points). Once you complete one of these events you’ll be notified that you’ve earned XP via an in-game pop-up. It will also appear in your personal news feed and be blasted out to all of your friends’ news feeds to showcase what you’ve just done (it depends of which filters are on). Your XP total will be seen in the EA Sports Football Club widget in the corner of most screens. Each time you reach a certain XP threshold, showcased in a meter that fills up, you’ll reach a new level. You can also compare your Level with all of your FIFA friends within the Leaderboards panel from the EA Sports Football Club hub.
- FC Credits
FCC is the abbreviation of Football Club Credits, the EA Sports Football Club currency. Don’t confuse with Ultimate Team coins. In the exact same way you earn XP, you’ll earn FCC. Your FCC total can be seen in the EAS FC widget in the corner of most screens. You can use your FCC to redeem unlockable items that can enhance your FIFA experience in the EAS FC Catalogue.
You may earn XP and FCC in FUT 16 playing matches, winning tournaments, getting promoted or leveling up your EAS FC level. Outside Ultimate Team mode, you may also earn XP and FCC completing challenges in highlights of the week, getting promoted in seasons head to head or in Co-Op and winning awards or cups in career.
You can access the EAS FC catalogue wherever you are. You don’t have to back out of the mode you’re in because it is always available through the EA Sports Football Club widget. To access the catalogue, follow click on ‘Catalogue’ in ‘Customise’ menu or press the Right Stick and then go all to the right until you see the shopping cart icon. The EAS FC catalogue is optimized to show you first the items of the game mode you are in.
Inside the EAS FC Catalogue, the items are organized by level of experience and by game mode. It is possible, for example, to filter the items that are exclusively for Ultimate Team mode. You can not redeem items of a higher level of yours and you are not allowed to buy a item more than once. The purchased items are marked with a green tick and the inactive items are marked in gray until you reach the respective level.
The EAS FC catalogue is only available in the console. You can not access it through the Web App or mobile devices. You will not find it in FIFA 16 Ultimate Team for Android or for iOS, but your progress in the game will contribute for your level XP and FC credits. You can use them to redeem items on your console.
It is possible to offer an item that you already have redeemed to yourself
To offer an item can be very advantageous because it only costs half the price you pay when you redeem that item for yourself. Ask a friend to offer you the items you want and do the same to him. Both will save.
It is very simple to send a gift. You just need to go to the EAS FC catalogue, find it and select the option ‘send a gift’ which is right besides the ‘redeem’ option. It will pop a list of your friends and you just need to choose who you want to send the gift to finish the process. You can only offer items to friends that play in the same console you do. For example: it is not possible to send a gift to a Playstation 3 owner if you play in Playstation 4.
You can only redeem an item to yourself once. However, you can send it as a gift as many times as you wish, even if you already have it. In the same way, you can only accept gifts if you do not have them yet.
Now you can access the Catalogue through the ‘Customise’ menu
