EA brought back the long and one of the most anticipated events to the game in the form of FIFA Mobile 20 Retro Stars. As the players get the chance to revisit some of the best players this throwback-themed event, Retro Stars promises to bring a blast from the past.
FIFA Mobile 20 Retro Stars Event Description
- Event Duration: August 6th – August 27th (21 Days)
- Ads: 3 ads daily giving 3 Neon Energy per ad
- Coin Packs: 7 Coin Packs weekly giving 12 Neon Energy for 150,000 coins

FIFA Mobile 20 Retro Stars Event Flow
In the Retro Stars Chapter, you will be spending your Neon Energy to play Skill Games, VSA Matches, and H2H Matches to get Retro Points. You will be spending 3 Energy per skill game in return for 10 Retro Points. Additionally, the VSA or H2H matches return 15 Retro Points on wins 10 on a draw and 5 on losing the matches. So it is safe to stick to the Skill Games.
On playing a Skill Game or Match Type 15 times to unlock a Bonus Match that rewards with 100 Arcade Tokens. Additionally, there are milestones where you can earn Daily Retro Points when you use 20 Neon Energy. The amount of Retro Points you receive depends on the total amount of Neon Energy you’ve used to date thus earning you further additional milestones.
There are also 7 weekly coin packs that give 12 Neon Energy for 150,000 coins each and 3 daily ads giving 3 Neon Energy each.
This is basically the path of rewards. The same rehash of what we have been seeing in almost each and every event. You will move across the path of rewards and redeem your Retro Points here to earn Retro Stars Players.
Claim 4 Path Players to earn a 99 OVR End of an Era CDM Bruno Soriano. Earn 6000 Retro Points to earn a 100 OVR Player. Claim both 104 OVR Path Players to earn 106 OVR Prime Icon Robert Pires, Hello P2P whales!
You will be using your Retro Tokens in the Arcade Claw Chapter to earn Players, Coins, and Skill Boosts. The more times you play, the more milestones you unlock!
This is similar to the Bubble Chapter from the Treasure Hunt Atlantis. Player rewards can only be redeemed once, but resource rewards can be redeemed multiple times. There are additional milestones that reward you for “playing” the Arcade Claw a certain number of times.
Play the Bonus Matches here to earn Coins, Skill Boosts, Training XP, Retro Points, Players, Hazard Keys, and Logos. Complete an SBC with 11 Master Players to earn extra Coins. Earn all the available Hazard Keys to earn a 99 OVR End of an Era ST Mario Gomez!
This is similar to the Hidden Gold chapter from the Treasure Hunt El Dorado where you will be playing the bonus matches to earn resources and points.
Retro Memory (Week 2)
Play all the Skill Games for random rewards, including a Hazard Key. Complete all 9 Skill Games for an extra 100 Retro Points. This chapter further counts towards the EOE Mario Gomez milestone.
Note: Retro Memory Week 1 and 3 are similar in rewards and matches, Week 2 is a little different in both the format and the rewards.
You should be completing the SBCs but the longer you wait, the cheaper the players will become. It’s not that tough, each requires only 5 players, all of them being 86+ OVR, while two of them being Retro Stars players. While the other SBC asks the same requirement only the OVR being lifted to 90 OVR.
FIFA Mobile 20 Retro Stars Event Currencies

Running the Math for F2P Players
As per our calculations, the following sums up the chances for F2P Players.
|Hourly Refresh||1 per Hour||503|
|Weekly Coin pack||84 per Week||252|
|Daily Ads||9 per Day||189|
Total 959 Neon Energy and 707 without the Coin Packs
These 959 Neon Energy if used to play only Skill Games to earn Retro Points. Playing the Bonus Match for Arcade Retro Tokens would decrease your energy by 95 with the Coin Packs and 70 without.
Thus a total of 864 Neon Energy and 637 without the Coin Packs
|3 Energy per Skill Game||10 Retro Points||2880 Retro Points|
|Retro Milestones||25-200 Retro Points||2975 Retro Points|
|Retro Memory Chapter||100-150 Retro Points||400 Retro Points|
Total 6255 Retro Points and 4820 without the Coin Packs
Note: You can ignore playing the Bonus Match for Retro Tokens, but playing it would only decrease your Retro Points by a mere value of 300 Retro Points thus still allowing you to claim all your desired players.
|Main Chapter Bonus Match||2100|
Total 2300 Retro Tokens for the Arcade Claw Chapter
Note: Later EA offered compensation of 15 energy taking the total tally to 879 Neon Energy with now a total available shot at 6305 Retro Points with coin packs.
FIFA Mobile 20 Retro Stars Tips and Tricks
After a half-decent Treasure Hunt El Dorado, this Retro Stars is really an event to play out for. Being said all that, this event still acts like sort of a deja vu, with the same exact event designs and layouts to play for. With some usual skill games grinding and playing for three weeks, so here is our suggestion guide for the FIFA Mobile 20 Retro Stars.
Thus from the math, it is seen that 6255 Retro Points are possible mathematically if you play the skill games daily without missing any reset. You will want to buy the coin packs to play out your skill games as only buying the coin packs gives you a better chance of rewards.
Don’t let your energy refresh out. Never! When you unlock the Arcade Bonus Match, you are gonna want to play these matches. They give out Arcade Points and players including a chance at 106 Prime Icon Pires! Yes for the first time, EA is giving a shot at a free prime icon although the odds are really very very less.
|Player Name||Main Path||Side Path||Total Path||Additional Gems Required|
|91 OVR GK Blake||100||580||680|
|91 OVR CB Raul Albiol||225||580||805|
|94 OVR ST Hennings||400||1420||1820|
|94 OVR LB Alex Sandro||625||1420||2045|
|96 OVR RW Skov||950||2100||3050|
|96 OVR LM Bouanga||1325||2100||3425|
|99 OVR GK Neuer||1725||2500||4225|
|102 OVR CB Lindelof||2200||2850||5050|
|102 OVR CM Rooney||2750||2850||5650|
|104 OVR LW Son||3600||6000||9600||37500|
|104 OVR LM Ribery||4650||6000||10650||52500|
|100 OVR ST Quagliarella||6000|
|99 OVR RW Pepe||5250||5250|
|99 OVR CDM Bruno Soriano||625||4000||4625|
|106 OVR LM Robert Pires||4650||12000||16650||127500|
Therefore, from the table, it is clearly visible that 102 CM Rooney is Free to Play obtainable. Without obtaining any of the gem packs you can get Rooney and close to a 91 rated player even.
If you opt for Lindelof though, the 102 CB sitting right before Rooney, you will have a shot at a 94 rated and two 91 rated players. Everyone will get Quagliarella available just for collecting 6000 Retro Points.
Daily Point Bonus
This work a bit differently than we have seen in other events. If you spend 20 Neon Energy on any given day, you earn additional Retro points based off the total Neon Energy you have used till date. EA has a little bit of a chart to explain it.
Like if you have under Tier 1, 149 Energy spent you will get 25 Bonus Retro points all the way up till Tier 4 where on spending 500 Energy you will get 200 Bonus Retro Points daily bonus. To get them you have to stay on your energy and have to open all of the coin packs right away, don’t wait on anything, just stay on top it. Cause it does come down pretty quickly.
Thus from the image, we can see on taking the coin packs on both the 1st and 8th day we can get the edge above others in the Daily Point Bonus Packs.
Another Random player Wheel thing, giving the free boost, XP, and Coins. You can play the Arcade wheel 23 times at max thus being able to unlock 99 rated OVR End of Era Baines.
There are matches in this path but wait for it! There is an SBC! It requires 11 Masters all in position. If you have been investing masters last couple of weeks and through treasure hunt, you will be fine. If not you might be utterly screwed in spending ass-bank load of coins just to complete the SBCs.
The path will reset three times thus making it complete at least two-three times. If you want the shards you are gonna have to do it. If you want the Epic Shards which will make a difference, you need to go all the way down. So SBCs are important.
Because the Masters‘s requirement for the SBCs this time, expect the masters to hold the values in the market over the three weeks’ time. Especially the position-specific ones, the Goalkeeper, Left-Right, and Center mids. You can wait till the mid-week to complete the SBCs while people rushing in to do it right now.
You can get the End of Era Gomez just by collecting the Three Hazard Keys available one per week in this chapter.
