Latest - Team 2 now live
Road to the Knockouts Team 2 is now out, with a few big hitters included that will definitely become meta cards.
Two German players, Chelsea striker Timo Werner or Dortmund's captain, Marco Reus, made the cut, with both fitting nicely into the current meta teams.
La Liga has seen some love, with Frenkie de Jong and Jesus Navas gaining upgrades which the league was crying out for.
The all-new Road to the Knockouts event began on Friday, 15 October, although we are still unsure exactly how long the event will run for in Ultimate Team.
A two-week event would line up perfectly for Ultimate Scream (or whatever EA will call their Halloween promo this year) to arrive on Friday, 29 October.
Road to the Knockouts upgrades explained
Not sure how the new RTTK cards work? Don't worry, we have you covered.
Road to the Knockouts items are special upgraded Live Items in FUT 22 that have the potential to earn two further dynamic upgrades throughout the Group Stage of each tournament:
- If their team qualifies for the knockout stages of their current competition.
- If their club earns three wins from their four remaining Group Stage matches.
Not quite the same as the Road to the Final cards we have seen in the past, these cards are limited to a maximum of just two upgrades.
SBC & Objectives
So far we have had three Road to the Knockouts SBCs released, and two Objectives players.
While these SBC players are good cards themselves, the way the FUT market is right now they just are not offering value for money.
Another French midfielder, Benjamin Andre (OVR 83), was released as an Objectives player and can be unlocked by completing challenges in the Live FUT Friendly: Group Stage Glory.
