If you loved spending some 12 hours a weekend grinding 40 high-stress competitive games of FIFA Ultimate Team, we've got good news.
The FUT Champions Weekend League is back and at least on the surface, is an awful lot like its predecessor.
The game mode was a revelation last season undboutedly; besides advancing the ball on FIFA's march towards legitimacy in sports esports (and beyond), the in-game competition made it truly possible for anyone with enough talent and hustle to build their ultimate team (or a close approximation there of).
While the play-to-win possibilities have never been greater, the game did represent a pretty significant bandwidth grind that either wasn't realistic or was too taxing for many.
So far, the schedule, structure, and even prizes -- as visible in the video overview of the mode above -- seem rather familiar. Of course, particularly when it comes to structure, prizes, etc, the team deputized with being in charge of those can experiment and tweak, as they did throughout the inaugural go of the offering.
Though it's unconfirmed, it's expected FUT Champions' Weekend League will remain the primary qualifier to competitive FIFA events this coming season.
