After a successful Season 1 of Attack Mode on FIFA Mobile, EA Sports announced the next Season 2 that will bring more features and updates thanks to the feedback of users.

Reducing the length of Season 2 to 15 Days

EA Sports like to consider Attack Mode as an ever-evolving program that could be adjusted based on player participation. Initially thought that 28 days was the ideal length of time for a season, the statistics proved it wrong. After viewing the data, EA noticed that most hardcore Attack Mode Players were reaching FIFA Champion Status in a matter of days with others reaching it after about a week. 

By cutting the length of Season 2 to only 15 days, they think this will appeal to those who most engage with the mode. Additionally, by now allowing us to have two Seasons take place in a month, the rewards you get for participating will feel much more meaningful.

Changing the Rewards and how we issue them

When EA Sports began issuing Pre-Season Tokens and the first round of Season 1 Tokens, they noticed there was a lot of confusion from people with regards to the Reward Packs. In some cases, people accidentally used their Season 1 Tokens to complete Fan Favorite Plans or used their Tokens early to unlock certain player rewards thinking they would get more than the 130 that they announced you’d get by the end. 

Because of this, they’ve changed a few things about Reward Packs and Season Master Players.

Reward Packs will now only grant Player Items

When you get promoted in Attack Mode, you will no longer receive Season Tokens. Instead, you will be grant with a Reward Pack that has a set amount of Player Items. The higher the division you are, the better the reward you get. These Reward Packs will feature Base Player and/or Attack Mode Fan Favorite Items.

When a season ends, there will still be End of Season Reward Packs. Based on where you finish a season of Attack Mode, these will include a certain number of Player Items as your reward and an End of Season Token. 

End of Season Tokens

Instead of collecting 88 Tokens to redeem the Legendary Division Master Token, EA are simplifying this process so that each Division Master Player requires a certain Token, which they will issue in your End of Season Reward Pack.

Depending on where you finish the Season, you will get a Token.

  • Reach Pro 1, World Class 3, or World Class 2 to receive a Pro Token
  • Reach World Class 1, Legendary 3, or Legendary 2 to receive a World Class Token
  • Reach Legendary 1 to receive a Legendary Token
  • Reach FIFA Champion to receive a FIFA Champion Token

Based on this, the Token you receive can be used on specific Attack Mode Master Player Plans:

  • Use the Pro Token in the Pro Division Master Player Plan
  • Use the World Class Token in the Pro Division OR World Class Division Master Player Plans
  • Use the Legendary Token in the Pro Division OR World Class Division OR Legendary Division Master Player Plans
  • Use the FIFA Champion Token in the Pro Division OR World Class Division OR Legendary Division OR FIFA Champion Master Player Plans.

Each Master Player now requires Two Tokens to unlock

Each Monthly Attack Mode Master Player Plan will require two Tokens to unlock. Additionally, there won’t be an extra Token for reaching FIFA Champion anymore as it did for Pre-Season and Season 1.

The Monthly Attack Mode Master Player Plans will be available for 45 days, so you can hold your Tokens until the last minute before redeeming them on this month’s Attack Mode Master Players.

EA Sports will introduce four new Attack Mode Master Players at the start of April, so there will be a period at the beginning of a month where you can redeem your Tokens on up to nine (9) different players (March’s four Master Players, April’s four Master Players, and the Attack Mode Master Griezmann).
