FIFA Mobile – New Season Transition

Spanish version | Russian version

 

We can’t wait to unveil the new FIFA Mobile season in January! Before we get there, it’s important we go over the full transition and season reset with you. There are many impactful changes coming to the new season, including what items carry over, what items reset, new Regions, and a longer season. Take a minute to read through our transition article and make sure you’re fully prepped when the new season arrives.

 

Will there be a new app?

No, you will be updating your existing FIFA Mobile app from the App Store or Play Store. Please stay posted on our Twitter account for the official app update’s launch date and time in January. The new season app update will be fairly large, so we recommend using a Wi-Fi connection when updating.

If you are playing on a Guest account, please consider linking your account so that you can recover it if you change devices or remove the app from your device.

 

Are there any minimum requirements to play the new FIFA Mobile?

Yes, not all devices can play FIFA Mobile in the upcoming season. Visit EA Help to make sure your device meets minimum spec requirements to download the app, play Head to Head, and enable 60 FPS.

 

What progression carries over when the new season starts?

In addition to your Now and Later Points and Players, your remaining FIFA Points balance will carry over. Here’s a more comprehensive list of what resets and what doesn’t:

 

Which items will reset?

  • Account Level
  • Roster (Legacy Team will no longer exist, but end of season OVR will still matter!)
  • Coins
  • Gems
  • Skill Boosts
  • Fans
  • Cups
  • Quests
  • League Record
  • Friend List
  • VIP Level
  • Training XP
  • Leaderboards
  • Badges
  • Leagues

Which items won’t reset?

  • FIFA Points Balance
  • Now and Later Points and Players
  • User Logos (All in-game club logos will be available in the new season based on what club you choose.)
  • Emotes
  • Kits (including custom kits) (All in-game club kits will be available in the new season based on what club you choose)
  • Username and User ID

Legacy Mode

While there are many great changes coming to the new season, there are limitations, notably the end of the Legacy Mode which is not compatible with the new game version. This means that the team you are currently using will remain until the new season begins, but you will no longer be able to view or play with it as a Legacy Team in the new season. 

 

We understand this may be disappointing to see. It was a hard decision but we feel all the upgrades that come with moving to the new game version is worth this loss.

 

End of Season Team OVR

Your end of season team OVR still matters! You will receive rewards in the new season based on the OVR of your final team. And the higher your Active Lineup’s OVR, the better your rewards!

 

Collect Now and Later Points in the Preseason Freeze event for rewards in the new season. Earn untradeable Now and Later Players to receive a version this season, along with a version that will be granted in the next season with all new stats.

 

Regions

Another major change coming with the new season is the launch of new separate servers that are based on your location. All players will be included in one of 7 Regions. This means that you will be playing FIFA Mobile only with other players from your Region, which will help matchmaking and create a better overall experience.

 

This was not an easy decision to make. We understand that some leagues are international. We believe the benefits of adopting Regions are great enough to warrant this major change. FIFA Mobile has players from around the globe, and ultimately this change is about making the game a better reflection of that. By doing this we are attempting to make the game accessible and affordable to a wider audience, and trying to create a fairer gaming experience for everyone.

 

Moving to Regions helps with matchmaking, allows for better connectivity in competitive modes, and a smoother overall experience. Doing this also allows us to provide more relevant live events for each Region over the long term. And while this update is our biggest one ever, the start of the new season is just the beginning, there are a lot of exciting things planned for the year ahead and some of them just wouldn’t be possible without Regions.

 

The 7 Regions at launch:

 

  • Asia & Oceania
  • Europe, East
  • Europe, West
  • Indian Subcontinent
  • Latin America
  • Middle East & Africa
  • North America

Scroll down to the end of this article for the full list of countries per Region.

 

What does this mean for me?

When you log into the new FIFA Mobile season for the first time, you will be entered into one of the 7 Regions. It’s based on your device’s location and cannot be changed.

 

Can I still play against players outside my Region?

The change to Regions means that matchmaking, leaderboards, friend lists, and leagues are only available with players from your Region. For example, someone from North America will only be able to play someone from Canada or the USA. They would not be able to play someone from Western Europe or India.

 

What is affected by Regions?

This Region change affects a lot of parts of FIFA Mobile. These are all the aspects that will be affected:

 

  • Matchmaking in all modes (VS Attack, Head to Head)
  • Leaderboards (Division Rivals, Live Events)
  • Leagues
  • Friend Lists

How will this affect my League?

Leagues will be restricted to a single Region. We understand that some Leagues are international and have been active for years. We hope that the friendships and connections that have been built from long-standing Leagues can continue to blossom on community social channels. 

 

My friend is in a different Region, can I still challenge them to a match?

This change means that you will not be able to add friends or play against someone from outside your Region. As mentioned earlier, we understand that the FIFA Mobile community is international in its nature. We hope to continue fostering a gaming community that is still international at its core but with a larger regional focus in mind.

 

Longer Season
The upcoming season of FIFA Mobile will bring an abundance of updates and changes to gameplay, features, graphics, audio, and the overall season format. As part of this update, we’ve designed the upcoming FIFA Mobile season to run longer.

 

This update lets you grow and keep your team for longer without losing progress. This will give you much more flexibility with your Ultimate Team, which in turn, will be a more enjoyable experience.

 

We hope this new season’s player transition article was helpful. Thank you for embarking on this exciting journey with us,
