Much emphasis has been placed on FIFA 15 coins, with less known about FIFA points. FIFA Points have always been a part of Ultimate Team since FIFA 11 when EA introduced a new and improved Web App that also included bid tokens which have since been removed. FIFA points were designed as a way in which players of FIFA 14 ultimate team could pay to open packs of cards in the hope that they get the valuable players that they want. People are able to buy FIFA points in a similar manner as to buying FIFA 15 Coins via credits cards, however instead of buying coins from the internet they are able to buy FIFA Points from their console.
If you were a previous FUT 14 player and now play FUT 15, upon loading Ultimate Team for the first time you will be asked if you wish to transfer your current FIFA points from FIFA 14 onto your new FIFA 15 account. If you wish to do so your FIFA points will be removed from your FIFA 14 account and added to your FIFA 15 account to allow you to buy bronze, silver and gold packs.
Applications and their growing importance were also discussed in previous articles. FIFA points are also available to be spent via the web application or mobile devices such as android or iOS applications, located under the 'store' tab. This means that players can now use different mediums of accessing FIFA Ultimate Team to spend their FIFA 15 Points.
Cost is one of the biggest considerations when players of Ultimate Team decide they want a helping shortcut to improve their squad. The two main options are Ultimate Team Coins or FIFA Points. With FIFA Points you are chancing your luck against stacked odds whilst opening packs, with FIFA Coins you are guaranteed a set amount of coins. Once you receive the coins you are then able to maybe buy the player you were previously hoping to get in a pack, or alternatively, buy the player and then open packs with your remaining change! Ultimately FIFA Coins are cheaper and much more efficient than opening packs.
When buying either FIFA Coins or FIFA Points (via Xbox One game codes), the tendency usually is that the more you buy, the cheaper they get.
