FIFA 16 is already out; should we be excited, even though there's a new FIFA coming out each year? Obviously we should. It's the beautiful game after all (not considering Satan/Diego Costa here). There are a lot of changes that have been made to this year's FIFA, but none excites us more than the improved, in-game FUT mode.

FIFA's FUT mode, also known as the Ultimate Team mode, opens you up to a number of possibilities, with changes and additions made so that you can get the best out of your roster. This involves building strong team chemistry, earning coins and acquiring packs of cards featuring different players.

So what are the essentials that you need to keep in mind when messing around in FIFA 16's FUT mode? We take a closer look.


In case you didn't know, there's now the option to acquire FIFA Points, which players can buy with real currency. Players can then use these FIFA points to purchase Silver and Gold Card packs, or even enter a FUT tournament. This is one of the simplest ways to make the most out of the FUT, although you will need to shell out a bit of cash.

FIFA 16 FUT – Gold Cards Guide

When starting off with FUT 16, the game will ask you to name your team. From there you will receive a roster that will be generated at random. You will start off with the Bronze, Silver or Gold Card backings for each player. This is meant to designate a player's overall skills. A player with ranking anywhere between 0-64 is Bronze, a person ranked 65-74 is Silver, and players with ranking 75-99 are Gold. The Gold ones represent the best players in FUT 16, and you must know each player's attributes.

In time, you collect more Silver Cards, and when you have enough, remove the players in your team with the Bronze tag and replace them with the ones that offer Silver. There won't be many Bronze cards in a Silver Card pack, so you will need to save enough coins to buy as many Silver and Gold Cards as possible.

FIFA 16 FUT – Team Chemistry Guide

If you are to dominate FIFA 16's FUT mode, know that it starts with building brilliant Team Chemistry. When you open it, you will take note of the active roster that's there for you, aside coloured lines connecting players on the football pitch. These lines tell you about how each player works out for the other.

For example, a green line means the players have outstanding chemistry. However, players with similar skills but less chemistry are yellow. Lastly, a red line means terrible chemistry, so avoid that as much as possible. The FUT calculates player chemistry via factors such as nationalities, their leagues and ex-clubs. Make sure you put in players that will share great understanding between each other.

FIFA 16 FUT – Earn More Coins

To begin with, EA Sports will give you 500 coins, and you also have some complimentary card packs to open. Once that is done, keep a lookout for high-ranking players and consumables, including stadiums, managers, doctors and kits. You can also Quick Sell things you don't want, and the game will immediately put coins into your virtual account.
