Frequently Asked Questions
FIFA 17 Hero Purple Cards Introduction
What is a FUT Hero?
The Heroes were created in FIFA 15 Ultimate Team to reward individual honours, like best players and best young players awards, and heroic contribution during an important match such as a league derby, winning promotion to a higher league, or saving his club from relegation.
Just like MOTM cards, these ones become available in packs for only 24 hours. During this period, the FIFA 17 Hero cards replace the corresponding regular cards. In other words, in the day a player gets his purple card in packs, it is impossible to find his regular card there. Your odds of pulling a purple card from a pack are exactly the same of pulling the regular card of that player in another day.
If you own the regular card of a player elected Hero, your card will keep unchanged. If you want the improved version, you will need to buy the corresponding Hero version in the market or pull it from a pack in that day.

FIFA 17 Hero Purple Cards Availability
When the FUT Heroes will be available?
The FIFA 17 Hero cards don’t have any periodicity. It is expected to see them between May and June, because it is when the domestic leagues end. However, a few heroes cards will be released before that. Usually they are available in the FUT store for 24 hours only, but in special occasions, like when the first purple FIFA 16 card was released (Robert Lewandowski), it may be released along with the TOTW. In these cases, they can be found in packs during that week.
You can have the regular card and the FUT Heroes card of the same player in your club. However, you cannot use them both in your squad at the same time.
FIFA 17 Hero Cards Ratings and Stats
How big are the ratings and stats boosts?
The ratings and attributes of the FIFA 17 Hero cards are usually boosted in one or two points, compared with their last TOTW/MOTM/iMOTM/Hero cards or, if they don’t exist, their regular cards. The attributes have a similar increase but it doesn’t mean that all attributes have to be improved.
The position of the players in these cards may change if, in that match, they played really well in a different position.
It is possible to a player to have more than one Hero card, if they have been assigned in different games. These cards differ from each other only in the ratings and attributes (eventually in the position too). The more recent is the card, the higher is its rating.
FIFA 17 Hero Cards Prices
What happens to the Hero cards’ prices?
As usual with most of the In Form players, FIFA 17 Hero cards will be more expensive as soon as they are released. The overall rating, popularity, and position of a particular player is a key to determining their value, but players available for a period of 24 hours will be worth more FIFA coins than those who are available for a week. If a purple Hero were to receive a later inform, their previous purple card would likely drop in price significantly.
In the coming weeks, we will add a much deeper explanation to what will happen to the FIFA 17 Hero cards prices in the market.
