New OTW upgrade system

Ones to Watch cards have featured in the past couple of Ultimate Team seasons, and they will be back again in FUT 22.

If you are not sure how they work, then take a look at EA's summary below as there are some changes to the previous editions.

"As players show off their skills on the pitch for their new club, their Ones To Watch item will upgrade when they receive a performance-based in-form item such as Team of the Week and Man of the Match.
"New in FUT 22, OTW items will also be eligible for a ‘Wins to Watch’ upgrade, a one-time +1 In-Form boost if a team wins five matches out of their next ten domestic league games starting from October 1!"

PSG set to dominate FUT

As if their talented squad wasn't enough already, EA announced THREE players from PSG will be getting a Ones to Watch card.

Lionel Messi, Achraf Hakimi and Gini Wijnaldum were all confirmed.

Safe to say those are all ridiculous players to have in your squad at the start of the season!

Can you secure Messi?

Messi will undoubtedly be a favourite in Ultimate Team once again, and this card will only see that popularity continues.

However, many players won't have the coin to buy him, leaving it up to pack chance.

We could see another 'Guaranteed Ones to Watch SBC' as we did at the start of last season, which would increase the chances of getting the little magician.

Hakimi top choice?

Because Messi is likely to be very pricey, does that make this RB the top choice of the three?

It looked like Hakimi was going to be a much sought after player anyway, with his new 85 OVR card being insane!

As we know, pace is the go-to attribute on FUT, and with 95 PAC Hakimi cuts the mustard.

It is a shame he doesn't have a nationality that better links with other top players, locking you into other Ligue 1 players - or Icons!

Don't forget me!

It's easy to overlook Wijnaldum's OTW card because the other two are so good.

However, overlook him at your peril!

He is one of the top midfielders in the game, with great all-round stats.

He is a real box-to-box player, with decent pace and physicality which are much needed in Ultimate Team.
