Every mid-season, EA Sports releases OVR updates for players that have made an impact for their clubs in the first half of the season and this year it’s no exception.
Starting today until March 5th, over 400 hundred FIFA 18 Ultimate Team players will have their ratings permanently updated as part of Ratings Refresh. Only new basic player items found in packs will have updated ratings, but certain existing in-form items will have their ratings automatically updated to reflect the Ratings Refresh.
If you don’t know how Ratings Refresh works, here’s a quick guide:
- Upgrades apply to new basic (not in-form) player items found in packs. Non-IF players in your Club will not receive an upgrade.
- If an upgraded player’s new OVR rating equals or surpasses his existing first in-form’s rating, his IFs will get an upgrade:
- An exception is made for lower-rated player items with significant upgrades.
- This does not apply to Ultimate Scream items.
- If an upgraded player’s new OVR rating does not equal or surpass his existing in-form’s rating, his IFs will not get an upgrade.
- Ratings Refresh will not include any downgrades this year
Here are the upgrades for this season:
Paulo Dybala – CAM – Juventus 88 → 89
Edinson Cavani – ST – Paris Saint-Germain 87 → 88
Mats Hummels – CB – Bayern Munich 88 → 89
Philippe Coutinho – LW – FC Barcelona 86 → 87
Rest of the World
Jonas – ST – SL Benfica 83 → 84
As part of the FIFA 18 Ultimate Team Ratings Refresh, the following player items receive upgrades to their weak foot and/or skill move ratings based on the players’ real-world form this season. These upgrades apply to all existing and new FUT player items.
This post will get updated when new upgrades are released. Next league will drop on Sunday so stay tuned!
