FIFA 22 Future Stars Leaks: team 1 and team 2 (spoilers)
With a token swaps element, Future Stars will be bigger than ever this year. You can grind for 28 tokens over the next two weeks, credit to @FUTSheriff and @FUTDonk for the info.
Future Stars Team 1
It’s the final week of the TOTY promo and FIFA 22 Ultimate Team is already moving on. Future Stars Team 1 will be in packs from 6pm GMT on Friday February 4th – offering young talents who who receive an overall rating that’s based on them reaching their full potential. Thanks to @FUTDonk and @FUTSherriff for the info: here’s everything you need to know about the FIFA 22 Future Stars leaks:
Team 1 looks pretty solid, with Tchouameni and Bellingham looking the standout options. Arsenal fans will be delighted to see Smith-Rowe make an appearance, plus we’ve got a feeling that Cunha and Trincao are going to be fun to use. Vlahovic, who has been dominating Serie A and just moved to Juventus, is an interesting prospect – but he needs that Jorginho pace boost to be top tier.
Future Stars Team 2
Because these leakers really know their stuff, Team 2 has been leaked before the Future Stars Campaign has even started! And this is where it gets interesting: there are some top tier cards in here. Gravenberch looks like a reincarnation of his milestones card from FIFA 21, while LaCroix is sure to leave attacking players raging with that absurd pace.
Pedri and Wurtz could be great, linkable cards for underserved leagues – La Liga and Bundesliga – with some good links to a few Team of the Years and Honourable Mentions that sorely need them. Also watch out for Nunez and Adams – we think they look like they could be surprise OP items.
How does the Future Stars Promo work?
Like the wildly popular Winter Wildcards promo at Christmas, players can earn Future Stars tokens which can be exchanged for rewards at the end of the promo. There will be some objective players, some heavy packs and a Future Stars player pick & pack.
Based on what we know from WW, it’ll be a mix of SBCs, in-game objectives and a token or two in the store – everyone on FUT was given their first token for free by EA Sports yesterday. It will be available when you next log in.
What will you choose?
Sheriff has done it again, with the full list of rewards you can exchange tokens for on February 11th. And there are some good ones: two versions of Dutch defender Jeremie Frimpong (depending on how many tokens you’ve managed to grind) and an 89-rated Connor Gallagher make up the player options. They’ll both be fun, and unique, player items – GGs EA.
But, for us the value lies elsewhere: for 27 of the 28 tokens on offer, you can pick up an +85×10 pack (always, always, ALWAYS juiced) and get a guaranteed Future Stars player for your club. Our advice is not to be tempted by that player pick, it feels like a good option because you get a choice of three, but there will be 20 players to choose from and we know that only the top 5 or 6 will be really desirable.
Lastly, just a word on the card design: it looks amazing. We hope you’re as excited for the upcoming Future Stars promo as we are!
