Fresh cards in the packs! EA Sports brings the new event Road to the Knockouts in FIFA 22. The players have been live since October 15 (Team 1) and October 22 (Team 2). The new Europa Conference League is also in there – is this promo nice this year?

The RTTK cards are dynamic, which means that they can still improve as the season progresses. Of course, we'll tell you how it all works. Luckily we will continue to see the biggest stars in FIFA in the future.

What is RTTK in FIFA 22?

RTTK is the Road to the Knockout Promo in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team. The dynamic cards for the Champions, European and Conference League upgrade automatically if the team wins three games and/or survives the group phase. For the Knockout Stage, we expect another event with dynamic upgrades, namely the well-known Road to the Final Event (RTTF).

You can read all details about the Road to the Knockout on the official EAs website under this link.

Road to the Knockout: Upgrades

The upgrades are kept very clear. There will be a maximum of two improvements in overall strength. The first upgrade is available if one of the player's clubs wins at least three of the remaining four group games. That's a tough challenge. In the end, Manchester United lost again to Young Boys Bern or Real Madrid to Sheriff Tiraspol. Also keep in mind that a tie is also of no use. Ouch.

The potential second upgrade comes when the club qualifies for the knockout stages. Favorites should be able to do that. In addition,we'll get an event with the classic Road to the Final afterwards. So far we've got two RTTK teams. And they really have it all.

We are also curious to see whether the Europa Conference League has one or two insider tips in store for the FUT team - or whether the cards are just for SBCs and nothing else. But look at Son!

Road to the Knockouts: Team 2

RTTK Team 2 All Players FIFA 22

Team 2 of the RTTK promo was released on October 22, 2021. EA gives Timo Werner his first special card - the German striker is very popular in FUT. His RTTK card has a lot of potential, last season Chelsea made it to the final and won the cup too.

FIFA 22 RTTK Help: Which Cards Should I Get?

Buy the cards of the strongest teams with the weakest group opponents. Leroy Sané, for example, has a very good chance of double upgrading. The same applies to Heung Min Son, who should dominate everything with Tottenham in the Conference League. But also don't forget Timo Werner - he'll definitely get an upgrade and he already is damn OP. Hopefully you have completed the Nabil Fekir SBC, because the map plays really awesome in-game. Alexander Isak was also showered with praise from some content creators.
