FIFA 18 Hero Purple Cards
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 24 hours or one week. During this period, the FIFA 18 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 while available.
When the FUT Heroes will be available?
The FIFA 18 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, like the ones from the World Cup qualifiers. Usually, they are released along with the TOTW but in specific occasions, they can be out for 24 hours only.
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.
Ratings and Stats
How big are the ratings and stats boosts?
The ratings and attributes of the FIFA 18 Hero cards are usually boosted in one or two points, compared with their last TOTW or special card 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 18 Hero Cards Prices
What happens to the Hero cards’ prices?
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.
