The Fifa 12 Ultimate Team Web App.
The Fifa 12 Ultimate Team web app is a powerful tool in your Fifa inventory. If you are not using it yet then you are definetely limiting the amount of money that you are making on Ultimate Team. The web app boasts some nice features such as live auctions, squad viewer, pack opening and more, let me run you through the basics. Find the web app here: http://www.ea.com/uk/football/fifa-ultimate-team
1. Fifa Web App Home
These show important information about online privacy and also interesting updates about gold packs and in form players.
Players that you have bid for are shown up here, you can see whether you were successful, the price, and how long ago the auction was.
Shows you vs your friends on Fifa 12 Ultimate Team, you can see who has the highest club value, best trading figures and more.
Your Club Status:
The kit you are wearing and the ball and stadium that you have chose appears here.
Your Ultimate team name, age, amount of coins and web app purchase tokens are shown at the top of the page.
Fifa 12 Squads:
This is an excellent part of the website, It allows you to choose between your squads, swap formations, change players, quick sell players and much more.
You can check a player’s bio, swap them with different players, remove them. Also you can send them to the trade pile here or add consumables. Consumables can be used to increase a player’s number of contracts or heal them.
You can change the view of your team here, it allows you to see your players number of contracts, nationality, club and formation. This is good for when you are trying to build a high chemistry team. You can also use this to switch to the ‘Status’ view, this show a player’s contracts, fitness, morale and chemistry. Again useful for assessing your players and trying to build a high quality team.
This is a neat little feature that the more experienced Fifa Ultimate Team user can enjoy, it allows you (for fun) to build a team that includes players that you had in previous editions of Fifa. So you could have a team with Fifa 10, FIfa 11 and Fifa 12!
The Fifa 12 Ultimate Team Web Store
The Fifa 12 Web app store is useful if you are interested in buying packs or need more tokens for auctions.
Fifa 12Ultimate Team Packs:
These give you the chance to get some new players, you can choose from different types of packs as you can see above, Be aware that packs cost a lot of coins, they are not always worth the money, we will talk about getting the most out of them later. There are different types of pack, the standard pack, the premium pack (Which contains more cards and more rare cards but costs more) and on occasions you can find Special Packs.
Special packs contain interesting things but cost a lot of coins. There is a silver special pack that gives you a whole new team, but is very pricey. Jumbo packs are available in short periods of time, check Ea.com, and contain lots of cards, they are good value for money but getting 15,000 coins to pay for them isn’t easy.
Fifa 12 Bid tokens :
Bid tokens allow you to bid on online auctions for players, they are quite costly, you do not need them on the console game, so if you do buy them go for the 100 tokens, this is the best value for money.
When you buy a pack:
When you buy a pack you can choose what you want to do with the players and consumables, you can: Place them in your squad, store them in your club, send them to the trade pile, quick sell the cards.
Fifa Web App Trading:
The Fifa 12 Web app trading section is the most valued part of the Web App, it allows you to access auction search, Watch List, Trade Pile. You do need Tokens to bid on players so keep that in mind.
With auction search you can view all of the latest players to be put on the Fifa 12 Ultimate Team market. Simply enter your criteria, like the screen above, and hit search. The auction search is really great because of how customisable it is, you can change anything just like the console, the price, the club etc.
When you hit search you should a screen similar to this:
On this screen you can view players, do the 59th minute trick, Bid for players (using tokens), Offer trades with your players, Add players of interest to your watch list, or Buy players using the buy now button.
Players in auctions that you are interested in can be added to the watch list, this will mean that you can view these players without having not so good deals in your way. You can then come back later and make a decision on the player.
Your trade pile contains your players that you want to trade, putting players in to the trade pile can be done on the squads menu or when you open a pack. You can choose how much to sell them for, whether to send them back to the club or to quick sell them, see Discarding players.
