As expected, throughout the week, FUT players will be given new packs, special players, squad challengers and potentially a special tournament to participate in too — enabling players to win even more free prizes.
Here are the three things you can expect during the FUT Birthday week.
Usually, as seen in the previous FUT Birthday celebrations, one free pack is given out to players every day which can be redeemed in the evening, failing which those packs won’t be accessible.
Last year’s FUT Birthday, which lasted from March 21 to March 28, 2016, saw a gradual increment in the value of the packs as the week came to an end — starting with Gold packs on day one and ending with rare packs on the last day.
This time around we will probably see the same gradual increase in the value of the packs, while speculations persist that some of these packs might be untradeable.
FUT Birthday Tournament
Like every year, a special birthday tournament with increased rewards than the usual will be up for the players to participate in and try their luck.
The first online winner will also receive an exclusive EA-branded jersey for their club, in addition to a pool of coins.
An unstable transfer market is expected since a lot of packs from Bronze to Rare will be made available to a chunk of people, so there can be an irregular dip in the market price of certain players.
EA could even choose to tone down the quality of the packs that will be offered to players for free, but that could spoil the celebrations. Alternatively, they can also make the packs untradeable to avoid disturbing the market.
Don’t expect any extreme shifts in the market, but keep an eye out for players being offered on discounts and if you’re thinking of selling a good player right now, you might want to consider waiting until the FUT Birthday week is over.
