Eleven years of failing to build a strong FUT squad
It's FIFA Ultimate Team Birthday time!
It’s that time of the year again! FIFA Ultimate Team is celebrating its 11th birthday and EA Sports are releasing some quality perks to commemorate the occasion. Let’s see what they got for us this time!
Five-star packages from EA Sports for FUT Birthday
EA Sports’ main weapon of choice this year is a two-squad attack with player cards with not only improved overall ratings, but also five-star Skill Moves and Weak Foot stats. The regular release of this special pack included a total of 15 players – eight with Weak Foot improvements and seven with Skill Moves maxed out. Four more players were made available through Squad Building Challenges and Objectives to bring the number up to 19.
Here is the list of players that got five-star ratings in either the Weak Foot or Skill Moves category within the FUT Birthday pack:

Those whose Weak Foot has been upgraded to the maximum allowed will be able to perform equally with both feet without even the slightest drop in accuracy. The newest members of the five-star Skill Move club will receive the full range of skills within FIFA Ultimate Team, leaving it to the player to time them the moments of brilliance well.
The FUT Birthday fun doesn’t stop there. SBCs will include some special “FUT Favorites” with a flashback item type. Additional surprises await those taking part in the FUT Champions Weekend League. For more details on that, see the full statement by EA Sports.
