How Does Squad Battles Work?
In Squad Battles, you play for a spot on the weekly leaderboard. Multiple times a day, you will encounter new lists of opponents to play against, all of whom were created by real players around the world. By the end of the competition, you will be awarded prizes based on your final rank—the higher the rank, the better the prize. If you are looking to boost your overall point score, the Featured Squad can help you with that. Featured Squads are teams set up by popular FUT community members, and even real players and clubs. If you manage to beat the Featured Squad, you are awarded a set amount of points, no matter what difficulty you chose to play on.
Take note that the ranks are determined by the average score among all competitors.
So, Squad Battles is a new simple way to play Single Player matches and earn FUT rewards and coins.
- Play against community created squad (Single Player mode) every day and earn points
- Climb the Leaderboard to gain better rewards and FUT coins
How to Play Squad Battles
Squad Battles mode is accessible under FIFA 18 Ultimate Team > Single Player > Squad Battles.
After you enter to the Squad Battles mode, you will see a list of opponents you can play against under the tab Opponent Select. You can choose your opponent to play against, view their squad and their details or update your opponents list (if an update is available). On the top right of the screen, you can see the time left until the next competition and the points you earned this week. There are also two other tabs under this game mode:
Where you can play against the Featured Squad and earn higher points. Featured Squads are updated once a week (every 7 days). Featured Squads offer higher points than community matches.
Where you can choose your opponent to challenge their squad. Once you selected your opponent, you will be asked to select the difficulty:
- Amateur ~ 20% higher points than Beginner
- Semi-Pro ~ 40% higher points than Beginner
- Professional ~ 100% higher points than Beginner
- World Class ~ 220% higher points than Beginner
- Legendary ~ 320% higher points than Beginner
- Ultimate ~ 420% higher points than Beginner
Under this window, you can see your current rank with the minimum points required for each rank. Opposite the ranking list you can see the rewards list for your current rank and other ranks including some details and statistics such as how many percentage of players are currently in your and other ranks.
Here you can see the current list of top 100 Squad Battles players including their Online ID, points and the number of games they played under Squad Battles mode. You can also see the previous competition’s top 100 players list.
