At the FIFA21 FUT Icon Swaps you can get some icons as a reward. For a change you don’t have to spend coins, but you have to master tasks in different FUT game modes. For the successful completion of a task, you will receive tokens which you can exchange for packs and icon cards. Since Monday (29.03.) the second half of Icon Swap 2 is running, we will show you which new icon cards and packs are available for you.

The second half of FIFA Icon Swaps 2 has begun

The FIFA21 FUT Icon Swaps 2 is divided into two halves. The second half has just started (March 29), which means that there are new tasks for you to fulfill. The second half of Icon Swaps 2 ends on May 07 and also has 9 tokens ready for you. That means you have a good five weeks to collect all the remaining tokens.
By completing the tasks you will receive tokens that you can exchange for packs and icon cards. (Source: EA Sports).

The following tasks have to be accomplished

Silver: Win 6 Squad Battles matches (Min.-dif.: World Class) with 11 Silver players in the starting lineup
UCL: Win 6 Squad Battles matches (Min.-dif.: World Class) with 11 UCL players in the starting lineup
LA Albiceleste: Win 6 Squad Battles matches (Min.-dif.: World Class) with 11 Argentines in the starting lineup
Selecao: Win 6 Squad Battles matches (Min.-dif.: World Class) with 11 Brazilians in starting lineup
The best way is to combine two of the tasks. You can play the 6 games with a Silver Brazil team and an UCL Argentina team. This will save you 12 games.
Weekend League: Win 15 Weekend League games
Rivals: Score in 15 separate Rivals matches with first-owner player

FUT Birthday SBC Leak

FUT Birthday SBC Leak

The FUT Birthday SBCs have been leaked (Source: FIFA21 News).
FIFA21 Ultimate Team (FUT) Birthday Promo is in full swing. Every day EA Sports releases a new Squad Building Challenge (SBC). Hints about new cards are distributed by EA regularly with new loading screens. So for attentive gamers it is possible to minimize the number of eligible players in advance. You can find out which maps have already been released and which will follow here.
Already known are the cards of Lukas Podolski (FUT 09), Rodrigo Palacio (FUT 10), Mesut Özil (FUT 11), Arturo Vidal (FUT 12) and Eliaquim Mangala (FUT 13). The next card will come on Wednesday (March 31) and will most likely feature BVB’s Marco Reus. Leakers, who have already correctly predicted past cards, quickly settled on the Borussia Dortmund midfielder. It is likely that the Dortmund player will move from left midfield to the center.
A player on the left wing has been announced for Thursday (01.04.). Although there are no more specific clues about the card yet, many leakers are settling on Gervinho from Parma Calcio. The Ivorian was already a popular FUT card in past FIFA parts. On Friday (02.04.) Dimitri Payet will get a FUT Birthday card in honor of FUT 16. Over the weekend you can look forward to Renato Sanches on Saturday (03.04) and Eric Bailly on Sunday (04.04).
Although many leakers have often been right with their statements in the past, this information should be taken with a grain of salt. So it can be expected with excitement, if the FUT Birthday cards will really be released with the above mentioned players, or if EA Sports still has a surprise for you.

FIFA 21: TOTW 27 Prediction

FIFA 21: TOTW 27 Prediction

Oblak, Aubameyang and Havertz could make the TOTW 27 (source: FUTBIN).
On Wednesday evening (31.03.) EA Sports releases the 27th Team of the Week (TOTW) for FIFA 21 Ultimate Team (FUT). We present you our prediction.
Every ambitious gamer who is looking for his luck in the Weekend League (WL) at the weekend is especially eagerly waiting for the following Wednesday and Thursday. Because every Wednesday evening at 19:00 o’clock the TOTW in FIFA 21 appears and the newest inform cards are presented to us.
The following Thursday morning from 9:00 am, the WL rewards can then be accessed. Gamers can look forward to FUT Champions points, coins, packs and player picks. The higher the rank, the better the packs and the more player picks you get to be able to directly grab the coveted TOTW players.
Whether TOTW 27 can keep up with TOTW 26, which was released last week, remains to be seen.
This is what the team of the week 27 could look like (source: FUTBIN).

Jan Oblak (93)

The Slovenian goalkeeper could be given a place in goal this week. He kept his slate clean in his national team’s 1-0 win over the highly favored Croats, securing three points for his team.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (89)

The Arsenal FC player has made a lasting impression in the striker position. With a goal and an assist in the 3-0 win against the Democratic Republic of Congo, the 31-year-old was instrumental in his Gabonese side’s victory.

Kai Havertz (86)

The exceptional German talent was in the starting lineup for both the 3-0 win against Iceland and the hard-fought 1-0 win against Romania. He impressed with a goal and two assists. Havertz also has an Ones to Watch (OTW) card, which would improve with a TOTW nomination.
It remains to be seen what happens Wednesday night at 7pm, because then EA Sports presents the new team of the week. We are excited about the release and of course wish you a lot of pack luck on Thursday!

1st FC Heidenheim is German Club Champion

1. FC Heidenheim is German Club Champion

1. FC Heidenheim crowned champions of the VBL Club Championship (Source: DFL).
After an exciting final weekend in the VBL Club Championship by bevestor, the German Club Champion in eFootball has been decided: newcomer 1. FC Heidenheim crowned itself champion in its premiere season.

1. FC Heidenheim & RB Leipzig as group winners

The final of the VBL Club Championship by bevestor started on Saturday with the group stage: the eight participating clubs competed in two groups of four teams each. With a clear 9:0 win against the favored VfL Wolfsburg and a 6:3 win against VfL Bochum, 1. FC Heidenheim punched its ticket for the knockout round.
Even a defeat against the second surprise team of the current season, FC St. Pauli, did not put the group victory of the Heidenheim team in danger. With 18 points and a goal difference of 18:14, the duo of Serhat “Serhatinho01” Öztürk & Denis “Denis” Müller advanced to the semifinals.
Group B was similarly clear-cut, with RB Leipzig the clear favorite. With a 7:1 win over TSG Hoffenheim and a 7:1 win over Borussia Mönchengladbach, the duo of Richard “RBLZ_Gaucho” Hormes and Umut “RBLZ_Umut” Gültekin underlined their role as favorites.
Even a 2:5 defeat against 1. FC Köln did not put the group win in danger for the team from Sachsen.

Leipzig loses semifinal, Heidenheim on top

After a one-day break, the semifinals of the VBL Club Championship by bevestor started. At 11:45 am, 1. FC Heidenheim faced 1. FC Köln, while RB Leipzig had to deal with FC St. Pauli.
It didn’t take too long for the first big surprise, as the favored Leipzig team was beaten 1-0 by the eKiezkickers from Hamburg in the opening double match.
With a 3:0 score on PlayStation, RBLZ_Umut put his club in a good starting position. After a 1-1 draw on Xbox, the all-decisive fourth game had to be played, but luck was not to favor the Red Bulls: in the 20th minute of the game, the golden goal was scored for FC St. Pauli around Erol “Erol_96x” Bernhardt & Mustafa “xMusti19” Cankal, who ultimately deserved to enter the final.
The second semi-final, on the other hand, was much clearer, with 1. FC Heidenheim giving 1. FC Köln no chance: with a 2:1 victory in the doubles and a 2:0 win on the PlayStation, Serhatinho01 punched the final ticket for the Baden-Württemberger.
The Heidenheim duo then also started the grand final with a good tailwind, winning the first game 2-1. In the second game Denis closed the bag relatively quickly and gave his opponent Erol “Erol_96x” Bernhardt no chance in the decisive 2:0 victory.
For the eight participating clubs in the final of the VBL Club Championship 2020/21 by bevestor, however, the FIFA 21 season is not yet over. They form the first half of the VBL Grand Final by bevestor, which will be played from June 04 – 06. The other 16 participants will join them from the playoffs, which are scheduled for mid-May.

How to go Pro 2 – Training structure & training plan

How to go Pro 2 - Training structure & training plan

Coaching & Training are essential to keep up with the best (Source: FIFA)
Rich and famous by playing FIFA? – As an eSports player this is possible!

In the first part of our series “How to go Pro” you could learn what a FIFA pro is and which basic requirements you have to fulfill to become one. If you have done these steps, you are ready to start your personal FIFA Bootcamp with the right training plan.

Training plan

Before you directly start to create an Excel spreadsheet, there is one thing that stands above all. Namely the definition of a goal. You have to think about what you want to achieve with gaming. It doesn’t matter if you want to become a FIFA World Champion or just finish the FUT Weekend League with bronze two, you need a goal to work towards.

When you’re done with that, take a look in the mirror. At least figuratively, because you need to know who you currently are and how good you are at the moment. Define your status quo, because this is the only way to recognize your progress.

This brings us directly to the next point: training diary. Yes, every hard gamer should keep a diary where they record training and game results. So, when you have finished a Weekend League game, for example, the game info is your best friend. Because here you have all the basic statistics listed. Write them down in your training diary! Score, possession, shots, shots on goal, passing percentage, etc. EVERYTHING is relevant and helps to make you better!
The workout plans of eSports athletes & strength athletes have a lot in common (Source: University of Nottingham)

Training structure - How often? How long? Which exercises?

Real eSports pros train 6-7 days a week for 8-16 hours a day, and that’s what it takes to keep up with the absolute best in the world. However, it’s not just about training as much as possible, but also about content and methodology.

After a match, professionals start directly with the match analysis, where they pay close attention to the tops and flops of the last match. Every ball loss and every goal conceded are closely scrutinized and then trained in isolation. The game scene is re-enacted in a friendly match and repeated until they are better able to resolve the situation. So, for example, if you concede too many goals through the wings, you have your training partner attack you through the wings until you are stable.

It is best to find a training partner who is slightly better than you. In addition, it is advantageous to watch the pros in order to learn one or two tricks. Another possibility is to start directly a coaching with a FIFA pro  and get taught all the tricks live.
If you are still looking for a training partner, then check out our Discord Channel and become a new FIFA Champ together with our community!

Anders Vejrgang Crosses the €15,000 Mark in FIFA Prize Money

Anders Vejrgang Crosses the €15,000 Mark in FIFA Prize Money

Anders Vejrgang is filling the bank at a young age. (Source: RB Leipzig)
EA Sports organize the main FIFA pro events, but esports players sometimes take matters in their own hands and set up their own FIFA 21 tournaments. Those who are consistently successful in the Blacki Cup & Co. Community events can look forward to good amounts of prize money. The available info shows how Anders Vejrgang earned €15,000 with little effort.
Anders Vejrgang of RB Leipzig is one of the best FIFA players in the world. This is indicated not only by his success in the Weekend League, but also by his appearances in community tournaments. Due to his age, the Dane is not yet allowed to play in the FIFA 21 Global Series by EA Sports, but the restrictions do not apply to smaller tournaments.
Elias Nerlich and Maurice Aliu are best known in Germany for their Eligella and Blacki Cups, which regularly attract Europe’s FIFA elite. Anders regularly takes part to test his skills and pick up prize money. RB Leipzig’s FIFA jewel has already collected over €15,000 at the Blacki Cups.
Young Anders has good reason to smile. (Source: RB Leipzig)

How Much is Anders Vejrgang Making from FIFA?

The EA regulations for community tournaments prohibit high prize money: the maximum prize pool is $2,500. However, since the cups take place very often, a large sum can be collected over a few weeks. A list of earnings at the Blacki Cups organized by Maurice Aliu shows just how much Anders Vejrgang has won: exactly €15,335.
For comparison, in a European regional cup organized by EA Sports, the prize money for first place is $15,000 or the equivalent of just under €12,600. The reason for Anders’ prize money numbers is not only his regular participation but also his many victories. The FIFA talent has finished among the top four players in the Blacki Cups 28 times so far.
Vejrgang is part of an ambitious esports project at RBLZ Gaming. (Source: RB Leipzig)
The next best player on the list – Ander “Neat” Tobal, has only 13 placements in the top four. Of the German players, Denis Müller, Mohammed “MoAuba” Harkous and Cina “LostInTheWavesz” Hosseindjani have collected the most prize money so far: between €2,000 and €2,800.
The size of the pot at the Blacki Cups depends on the number of participants: everyone pays a €5 entry fee. The more players that take part, the larger the prize pool. Around 200 competitors are common at tournaments, although they take place almost every day.
The 100th edition of the Blacki Cup is scheduled for tomorrow, March 26. Anders Vejrgang is surely going to be there, because, for him, these tournaments remain one of the few stages in the pro FIFA scene where he can shine at present time.

FIFA 21: TOTW 26 is live

FIFA 21: TOTW 26 is live

The Team of the Week 26 is here (Source: EA Sports)
Yesterday evening (24.03.) EA Sports released the 26th Team of the Week (TOTW) for FIFA 21 Ultimate Team (FUT). We show you which are the most interesting players and how to use them best.
Just before the FUT Birthday Promo Event starts tomorrow Friday (03/26), EA Sports punctually releases the Team of the Week (TOTW) 26.

The TOTW 26 not only includes a strong card of Frenchman Karim Benzema, but also brings playable upgrades for one or the other Bundesliga player.

You’ll get the popular TOTW players either from packs or from the Player Picks of your Weekend League (WL) rewards.

The best players from TOTW 26

Benzema, Gnabry and Mertens are the strongest players in TOTW 26 (Source: FUTBIN).
There are several playable cards in the new TOTW. We briefly introduce you to the three best ones.

Karim Benzema (ST)

The card of the Madrilenian has some advantages, but also a huge disadvantage. The 93 striker’s strengths are mainly shooting (91), dribbling (91) and passing (88). A decent physique makes him a beefy, finishing player. The Frenchman’s big weakness is his pace. With 81 pace he is simply too slow and even a chemistry style like Hunter, who brings +10 in pace, still doesn’t make him fast enough. Still, a decent card, and owners of his headliner card can also look forward to an upgrade.

Serge gnabry (lm)

The man with the mixing bowl from FC Bayern Munich is one of the strongest wingers in the Bundesliga. His stats in dribbling (87), pace (86) and shooting (85) are strong, but nothing for the absolute world class. However, with the right chemistry style like Hunter or Catalyst, he is quite playable and at a current price of 95,000 coins, you can’t complain.

Dries Mertens (ST)

The bustling Belgian is perhaps this week’s insider tip. With a four-star rating in Skills and Weak Foot, as well as an Agility rating of 95, the diminutive striker is extremely agile. 87 pace, 90 dribbling and a decent finish with 84 shooting, make Mertens a very unpleasant striker for all defenders. The only drawback is his strength score of 38, but at a price of just under 130,000 coins, you can overlook that.

FIFA 21 Javier Hernández Flashback SBC Cheapest Solution

FIFA 21 Javier Hernández Flashback SBC Cheapest Solution

Chicharito is back to prowl the penalty area. (Source: EA Sports)
Javier Hernández was a nightmare for defenders in Europe for many years. With his new FIFA 21 Flashback SBC, EA Sports celebrate his goalscoring prowess while playing for Bayer Leverkusen in the German Bundesliga. It is a cheap SBC, but is it worth doing? Our solution reveals this.
If your team was playing against Javier Hernández a few years back, you just knew your squad would concede a cheeky goal at some point of the match. His FIFA 21 Flashback SBC reflects that very well, but is the card any good for FUT?

The FIFA 21 Javier Hernández Flashback SBC Card

Flashback Javier Hernández is a good card to get for just 90,000 coins. That is, if you have someone to link him with. Have Player Moments Jonathan dos Santos on your FUT squad already? Then great, do this SBC. If not, then perhaps you should fold your hand.
Javier Hernández isn't the most skillful striker, but for less than 100,000 coins, might as well. (Source: FUTBIN)
Playing in the MLS would hurt Chicharito’s stock in most scenarios, but if that isn’t an issue for you, the card is worth the minor investment. Average skill moves and weak foot are the only notable issues you’ll face with the Mexican. The Marksman chemistry style raises his OVR to 93, yet we would personally go for Hawk as that 84 sprint speed does need a boost.

FIFA 21 Javier Hernández Flashback SBC Cheapest Solution

Two teams are required for Flashback Javier Hernández:

• Min. one Mexican player, min. 80 OVR, min. 80 chemistry

• Min. one Bundesliga player, min. one TOTW player, min. 83 OVR, min. 75 chemistry

Team 1: Rising Star

The first team costs pennies due to the very low OVR. For just about 15,000 coins, you can build this squad made up almost entirely of La Liga players. Mexico captain Andrés Guardado fulfils the nation requirement.
First team barely cracks 15,000 coins. (Source: FUTBIN)

Team 2: League Finesse

The second team is naturally more expensive because the OVR rises by three points. Still, our German backline gives us enough chemistry for us to be able to maneuver around cheaper stars from the MLS and add Éver Banega. The receipt should say 75,000 coins.
Our German back four opens up cheaper options up front. (Source: FUTBIN)
Is Flashback Javier Hernández cheap enough for you to go at this SBC? If you do decide to snap him, you will have a true clinical striker at your disposal.
