FUT 21 No more Fitness & Training Cards

  POSTED August 11, 2020

Finally, Fitness Cards have been removed, Staff and Training items too. Also, there is an updated Injury and healing system. Check how you will spend more time on the pitch instead of losing time in menus.

EA removed the time-consuming parts of managing your FUT Club to let you focus on the fun. 

  • Players recover full fitness after every match with no need to manage Fitness Items.
  • Staff Coaches and Training Items have been removed to simplify the experience.
  • Updated injury and healing system makes it easier to manage your lineup from game to game.

Fitness items have been a light management element in Ultimate Team since the very beginning. According to EA, the objective of those cards was put in the game originally to encourage rotation in the squad and to simulate some of the management decisions that football squads have to consider.
However, it seems that they have evaluated these mechanics and they decided that it wasn’t creating the desired effect in rotation and players were spending time doing a management action that was frequently required and, ultimately, not very fun. All players in FUT 21 will start every game at full Fitness.

Training items allowed to boost players' stats for a single game. This mechanic was not something that was being used in-game by the vast majority of players so EA decided, rather than to continue with this feature and give people items in packs that they’re not using, to remove it and simplify this space in-game. So Training & Healing related Staff Items have been removed from the game.

Healing Items will no longer be targeted at specific injuries. There will only be two Healing Items in the game: Gold common and rare Items. These will be applicable to any injury type and will reduce the injury duration by 2 matches and 5 matches respectively.

Packs Rebalanced

Packs in FUT 21 have been rebalanced around these changes and EA added a suite of new licensed club customization options, from club Tifos and Stadium Themes for a range of major clubs in FUT to the already available kits and badges that you currently find in packs, to help better realize your customization vision. EA is also going to slightly increase the frequency of Chemistry Styles to help you customize the effects of Chemistry more readily to your liking.

Changes In-Game

When in pitch the following changes will maximize the amount of time you spend playing online in FUT 21.

  • Shorter celebrations
