EA Sports have announced the launch of 'Path To Glory' in FIFA 18 Ultimate Team, a time sensitive event which sees new player cards and squad building challenges (SBCs) added to the popular game mode.
Path To Glory was launched at 6pm UK time on Friday and gamers can find 25 new 'live' cards in packs as a result, with a further four being made available through SBCs until Friday November 17th.
EA has released an in-depth FAQ alongside the Path To Glory release which can be read below:
Q: What makes Path to Glory special?
A: Path to Glory Contender items dynamically upgrade and can get ratings boosts throughout the season. If you have a Path to Glory Contender item in your club, its ratings will automatically match that of the player's latest Team of the Week, Man of the Match, European Team of the Tournament, Hero, or Record Breaker in-form items. The better the player performs in real life, the higher their ratings can go.
Q: What is a Live Item?
A: Path to Glory players will be released as Live Items. The ratings on this item type update automatically, whether the item is in your Club or listed on the Transfer Market.
Q: When do Path to Glory Contender items get updated?
A: The items get automatically updated when a new Team of the Week, Man of the Match, European Team of the Tournament, Hero, or Record Breaker promotion is released, provided that the player is included.
Q: What happens if a Path to Glory Player is transferred/loaned to a different club?
A: The Path to Glory Player Item attributes and latest in-form rating will be unaffected. However, the player's Path to Glory item will remain at the player's previous club until he gets an applicable in-form item, at which point the player’s club, crest, and dynamic image will be updated.
Q: What happens if a Path to Glory player changes nationality?
A: The Path to Glory Player Item will be updated with the new nationality as soon as possible.
Q: What happens if a Path to Glory Player is transferred/loaned to a club not in FUT18?
A: The Path to Glory Player Item will remain at the club he was previously at, but the player will not receive any further updates. His Path to Glory Item will continue to carry the last applicable in-form rating he received.
Q: What is the criteria for picking Path to Glory players?
A: Path to Glory contains a selection of players that are contending for spots on their respective national teams.
Q: What happens if a Path to Glory Player’s in-form is in a different position to their Path to Glory item?
A: The player’s position on his Path to Glory item type will not change. He will continue to receive any attribute upgrades from that and future applicable in-forms.
