From March 7, 2017 on, EA Sports are changing how they do In-Forms and Man of the Match Players. In Forms will now be a proper Team of the Week, featuring 11 players using standard formations, with 1 player chosen as the Master Elite Player. And as for the new Player of the Month (previously known as Man of the Match), you will need to complete the TOTW Plan to unlock the Player of the Month item.
Team of the Week
The core design of Team of the Week will be like In Forms. EA will continue to highlight the best players from around the world based on their domestic league play (or international play when there are International Breaks) within a single week. Now, EA will feature a proper Starting XI, similar to what they have now in FUT.
The style is still the same. Out of the 11 players that make up the TOTW, 1 will be the Master Elite Player Item. To unlock the weekly TOTW Master Player item, you will need to get all 10 of the other TOTW Player Items for that week.
Unlocking the TOTW Master Player Item rewards you with a POTM Token for that month. You will need to use POTM Tokens to unlock the new Player of the Month Player for that specific month. There will be still live events that grant TOTW Tokens to use in that week’s TOTW Plan. That Plan will grant you a random TOTW Player to use in completing that week’s TOTW Master Plan.
Take note that nny existing In Form Tokens you currently have in your inventory will be automatically updated to a new Team of the Week Token.
Player of the Month
At the start of a new month, EA will select a Player who has had an incredible previous month with a high rated Elite Player of the Month Item. To unlock the Player of the Month, you will need to complete all weekly TOTW Plans for that Month plus other requirements which EA will announce when the POTM Plan goes live in-game.
The POTM will become available on the first full week of a new month. After the Player of the Month is announced, you will have one week to complete the corresponding POTM Plan.
