The annual promo is back once again.
First released in FIFA 17, the Ones To Watch (OTW) promo returns with a new a team, squad building challenges (SBCs) and objectives.
What Are Ones To Watch?
Ones To Watch (OTW) are special dynamic items that celebrate the biggest moves during the summer transfer window and receive upgrades based on real life performances during the 2022/23 domestic season.
These special cards will get upgraded when a player receives an in-form (IF) like Team of the Week (TOTW) or Man of the Match (MOTM) in FUT 23.
OTW players can also receive upgrades via the ‘Wins to Watch’ mechanic that will enable a one-time +1 in-form upgrade if their team wins three out of their next eight domestic league matches starting from September 30th, 2022. The OTW players will receive the upgrade even if they don’t feature in the games as long as their clubs win.
In case an OTW player changes clubs during the season and receives an IF at their new clubs, their OTW item will be updated with the player’s new club and latest IF rating.
Moreover, an additional OTW upgrade can happen with to the new ‘Nations to Watch‘ mechanic that will allow a one-time upgrade if their national team wins a game at the FIFA World Cup 2022.
