Let’s see the answers to the most common questions about the FUT 23 Road to the Final event and special player items.
When will items be upgraded in-game?
Any earned Road to the Final Player Item upgrades will occur at the end of each week when a given stage has concluded:
- February 24th;
- March 17th;
- April 21st;
- May 19th;
- June 12th.
Does the player have to play in order for their RTTF Player Item to receive upgrades?
No—Road to the Final Player Items will receive upgrades based on their club’s progress regardless of whether or not they take part in any matches.
Can a player receive upgrades once their club has been knocked out of their European competition?
No—all RTTF upgrades are awarded for wins/progression so if a player’s club loses/is knocked out, they will not receive any further upgrades.
What happens if a RTTF Player Item comes out after their team has played their first knockout match in the UEFA Champions League?
All “won first match” upgrades for UCL RTTF Player Items are based on the first game their team plays after the item is released. This means that if a Player Item is released after their team’s first knockout match, their “won first match” upgrade will be based on the result of their team’s next knockout match (even if it requires extra time or penalties).
What happens if a UCL RTTF Player Item’s “won first match” upgrade also qualifies their team for the Quarter Finals?
If a UCL RTTF Player Item’s first match since their release is the second leg of the Round of 16 and their club wins resulting in qualification for the next round, they’ll receive a double upgrade, a +1 In-From Upgrade for winning and a +1 In-Form Upgrade for qualifying for the Quarter Finals.
What happens if a player item already has 5* Weak Foot or 5* Skill Moves when they reach those upgrade stages?
If a Player Item already has 5*WF and they reach the Final, they’ll receive a +1 In-Form Upgrade instead. Similarly, if a Player Item already has 5*SM and their club wins the Final, they’ll receive an additional +1 In-Form Upgrade instead.
What traits will be given to Player Items who qualify for the Semi Finals?
The three select traits will depend on the player’s position and existing traits.
