FUT 15 TOTW 8 (Week 8)
The eighth Team of the week for FIFA 15 Ultimate Team is unfortunately the worst one of the season as the lack of gold and BPL players contributes to it being outdone by it’s predecessors in recent weeks gone by. There are still a couple of notable tanks involved though, as Emenike, Griezmann and World Cup 2014 top scorer James Rodríguez make an appearance in TOTW 8.
Remember that you can acquire all these IF (in-form) players in packs from 6pm (UK time), on November 5th 2014 up until 5:30pm (UK time), on November 12th 2014. You’ll have more chance of finding these rare IF players if you wait until EA release special jumbo packs from their happy hours that they do on certain days. We’ve noticed a trend where they seem to do a happy hour on the Tuesday as the TOTW players are about to expire so look out for that time to open packs and get lucky.

This Weeks Trading Tips
If you manage to get the IF James Rodríguez card then we highly recommend that you sell it on within the first week that you have it. Preferably wait approximately one week and then put him up for transfer in the auction rooms. The reason we say this is he’s more than likely to get a SIF and TIF before the season ends and when that happens then your card will go down in price as it won’t be the best on the FUT market anymore.
The exact same goes for Thierry Henry as he will most probably get in the FIFA TOTW quite a few times throughout the course of this year. Considering how un-competitive the MLS league is, the Premier League legend will make easy picking of it again this season. So that’s our two tips for this week, remember to stay up to date by following us on social media platforms and we’ll be back next Wednesday with the new TOTW squad.
Good luck to all of you in your pack openings and your search for these rare players.
