FIFA 23 On PS5 May Break if You Have Too Many Friends

FIFA 23 PS5 May Break if You Have Too Many Friends

There’s never been a better time to cut down on your friends list – and if anyone asks you can just blame EA!

EA Sports released a statement earlier this week confirming that it’s exploring stability issues introduced in it’s recent title update. The recommended solution? “Reduce your PS5 friends list to 100 or less friends and re-launch the game.”

Why the issue is occurring is unclear, but apparently it’s not something the development team at EA Sports accounted for.

Have you had any issues with FIFA 23 since the latest update? Are you a social butterfly with hundreds of PlayStation friends? You can read all the latest on the known bugs in EA Sports’ football franchise on the publisher’s Trello page.

Cheap High Rated Players In Fifa 23 Ultimate Team

Cheap FUT Players

Finding the cheapest rated players on the transfer market is key to completing Squad Building Challenges. Players want to make sure they aren’t paying over the odds on players. Especially when sometimes, players just guess what rating they need to get a requirement over the line.

Veteran FIFA players will know certain items to target, but prices can fluctuate based on supply and demand as well as available content. Prices usually increase when there are popular, repeatable Squad Building Challenges. Team of the Season is around the corner and it’s sure to include numerous SBCs including the Guaranteed TOTS for each league.

Here are the cheapest 88 rated players in FIFA 23 and how to monitor price increases and decreases.

Cheapest 88 Rated Players FIFA 23

The best resource to use is FUTBIN for monitoring player prices. There’s an option to select Cheapest Players by Rating. From there, players can monitor general player prices. It’s best to use this considering most players will generally assume Rare Golds are the best option no matter what. In fact, there are cheap promotional items with high ratings.

As of Apr. 20, here are the top 10 cheapest 88 rated players on the transfer market, per FUTBIN:

  • Michael Owen – Trophy Titans Downgraded Version – 28,500 Coins
  • Amath Ndiaye – Fantasy FUT – 28,500 Coins
  • Ruben Dias – Rare Gold – 28,750 Coins
  • Alessandro Del Piero – Trophy Titans Downgraded Version – 28,750 Coins
  • Keylor Navas – Rare Gold (Nottingham Forest) – 28,750 Coins
  • Marquinhos – Rare Gold – 29,000 Coins
  • Bernardo Silva – Rare Gold – 29,000 Coins
  • Patrick Wimmer – Fantasy FUT – 29,000 Coins
  • Marc Andre ter Stegen – Rare Gold – 29,000 Coins
  • Toni Kroos – Rare Gold – 29,000 Coins

Make sure you double check player prices on the transfer market as these prices will go up when demand increases. Investing when cost is low will help keep costs lower for SBCs when prices go up.

FIFA Planning To Take On EA In The Video Game Space

FIFA Plans to Take on EA

FIFA is planning to take on EA Sports with its own football game by launching a rival soccer series.

With FIFA 23 marking the end of the the football confederation’s partnership with EA, FIFA president Gianni Infantino says the organization will take on EA Sports in the football game world by launching a rival soccer series.

After a long-standing creative partnership, in May 2022, EA Sports announced that it was separating from FIFA. FIFA 23 will be the final game made in cooperation between the two organizations, with future football games from EA to be called ‘EA Sports FC.’

FIFA now apparently plans to launch its own rival football game, with Gianni Infantino stating “The new FIFA game – the FIFA 25, 26, 27 and so on – will always be the best e-game for any girl or boy,” Infantino says. “We will have news on this very soon.”

With Pro Evolution Soccer – PES eFootball as it’s now known – seemingly well behind its one-time rival, it will be good to see some different competitors on the football game field in the near future.

FIFA 23 Fantasy FUT Update & Leaks

FIFA 23 Fantasy FUT Leaks

After making its debut in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team, the Fantasy FUT promo is set to make a return to FIFA 23.

The Fantasy FUT promo is expected to launch soon. And based on all the leaks we’ve seen so far, Fantasy FUT looks set to make up for last week’s absence of Ultimate Team promotions.

In FIFA 22, the Fantasy FUT promo consisted of two teams featuring boosted dynamic player items that could upgrade even higher based on real-life individual and team performances, in some cases upgrading by plus three overall ratings. Upgrades are going to be even bigger this time around, with FUT Heroes also part of the promo.

Here’s a round-up of the latest FUT Fantasy leaks, confirmed release date and the new upgrade system.

FIFA 23 Fantasy FUT release date

One of the three Fantasy FUT-themed loading screens contains a countdown to the promo’s release in FUT, confirming that the Fantasy FUT promo will begin on Friday, March 3 at 1pm ET.

We expect that the promo will have two squads released over a two-week period, with the promotion concluding on Friday, March 17 at 1pm ET. The loading screen also showed two different Fantasy FUT card designs, potentially hinting at a new type of player item being included.

FIFA 23 Fantasy FUT upgrades

In FIFA 22, Fantasy FUT players were able to earn up to +3 overall upgrades based on individual and team performances over the five domestic league games following the promotions release. The first +1 OVR upgrade was if they made three appearances in the five domestic league games, the second +1 OVR upgrade was if they make an appearance in a team win in one of the five domestic league games, and the third +1 OVR upgrade was if attackers and midfielders either scored or assisted whilst defenders and goalkeepers keep one clean sheet in the five games.

According to a FUT 23 loading screen, FIFA 23 will have a new and improved upgrade system for Fantasy FUT. According to the loading screen, there are now four upgrade opportunities as well as the ability to earn three new traits.

These are the four ways that Fantasy FUT players can upgrade in FIFA 23 after each player has been released.

  • +1 Upgrade: One win in the next six domestic league games
  • +1 Upgrade: Three appearances in the next six domestic league games
  • +1 Upgrade: Two goals or assists (Attackers/Midfielders) or two clean sheets (Defenders/Goalkeepers) in the next six domestic league games
  • +1 Upgrade and three new traits: Avoid defeat in the next six domestic league games

FUT Heroes will also be included in the promo, receiving Fantasy FUT Heroes player items. The Heroes will only be eligible for two of the four possible upgrades due to them not being able to make appearances or be involved in goals or clean sheets.

FIFA 23 Fantasy FUT leaks

The leaks come from reliable leaker @FutSheriff. According to him, Fantasy FUT could be one of the best of FUT 23 with FUT Heroes set to be included in the promo, but with a twist.

Each FUT Hero item included in the Fantasy FUT promo will receive upgrades based on a team they represented in their playing career, though they will not be listed as a player for that club, with the most logical option being a FUT Heroes league. As well as the FUT Heroes, the leaker has revealed a handful of players that are also reportedly set to feature. Here are the latest Fantasy FUT leaks.

  • David Ginola (FUT Hero) – Performance upgrades based on Newcastle United
  • Ivan Cordoba (FUT Hero) – Performance upgrades based on Inter Milan
  • Abedi Pele (FUT Hero) – Performance upgrades based on Marseille
  • Joan Capdevilla (FUT Hero) – Performance upgrades based on Villarreal
  • Ledley King (FUT Hero) – Performance upgrades based on Tottenham
  • Lars Ricken (FUT Hero) – Performance upgrades based on Borussia Dortmund
  • Peter Crouch (FUT Hero) – Upgrades based on Liverpool
  • Sami Al-Jaber (FUT Hero) – Upgrades based on Al-Hilal (SBC)
  • Harry Kewell (FUT Hero) – Upgrades based on Leeds United
  • Alexis Sanchez (Marseille)
  • Marcos Llorente (Atletico Madrid)
  • Fernando (Sevilla)
  • Said Benrhama (West Ham United)
  • Amine Gouiri (Rennes) – Objective
  • Kamal Miller (Impact Montreal)
  • Armand Lauriente (Sassuolo)
  • Christopher Trimmel (Union Berlin)
  • Amath Ndiaye (Mallorca)
  • Angelio (Hoffenheim)
  • Milan Skriniar (Inter Milan)
  • Memphis Depay (Atletico Madrid) – SBC
  • Alexander Isak (Newcastle United)
  • Dele Alli (Besiktas)
  • William Saliba (Arsenal)
  • Fabian (Paris Saint-Germain)

None of these players are yet to be confirmed to feature in the promo by EA, so we won’t know if they are included until the official release. We also don’t know if these players are leaked to come in Team 1 or Team 2 of the promo.
