Legacy Team: A new aspect of carrying over your team

EA Sports have decided to give their users a sigh of relief with this new addition in the game. FIFA Mobile is getting a new yet splendid update on your team-building capabilities, which is called the Legacy Team. This will be very helpful to every FIFA Mobile player who has spent his time on the game every season but sees his favourite team disappear at the end of every season.

The Legacy team in simple words will allow players to carry the starting XI of their current season to the next season which can be used to play events. But to note, they can only be used in certain events and challenges which FIFA will mention in prior. The rewards are also boosted in the case of Legacy Teams, so make sure to end this season on a high note.

How to set your Legacy Team in FIFA Mobile 20?

Prioritize your players, favourite or the best ones, build a high rated starting XI with the best set of players. You will have an option called ‘Legacy team’ in which you can view your team which will be carried over. The maximum OVRs attained by the team and the individual player is locked once the season ends, which will be retained in the next season.

Make sure to set your active lineup and check your team menu regularly in order to see your rollover squad. If you do not update the same, you will not be able to access your Legacy Squad in the next update.


EA has mentioned the gameplay changes before the FIFA Mobile 20 update went live. Calculated changes have been made in terms of gameplay and honestly, FIFA could have much better but it’s still quality.

Players will have two skill moves:

  1. Roulette (Common when you press ‘SPRINT AND SKILL’)
  2. Specialized skills (Swiping up the SKILL button)

You can view a player’s swipe skill move in the player trait option. At the start of the next season, a player will have one of the five skill moves:

  1. Rainbow skill
  2. Flip Flap
  3. Lane Change and roll
  4. Heel trick
  5. Flick Up and dribble

Stun times of a skill move are based on attributes. In other words, the gameplay is more towards real-life football.

The influencing attribute of a Goalkeeper will not be his height.

This is a competitive event which is like a matchday mode where we get to pick a side to compete in multiple leaderboards to earn rewards. This is a limited period event, which might run as per EA’s announcements. The current Derby is scheduled from September 19th to 24th.

The event will have two teams which you will pick a squad which cannot be changed. There are two types of Alliances where they’ll have a list of players who are called Alliance Players. Using these players will boost a chance of gaining a higher Derby score when the tournament ends.

Our impression about the FIFA Mobile 20 update

While we have noticed EA’s commitment to the game in terms of gameplay and events, it can be said that we can expect some more tweaks and upgrades in the game. The developers have done well in attracting more users by adding more interesting features, also by their Legacy team option allowance they’ve tried to indulge their regular players too. As the final verdict, this looks a better game than the older versions which will be a better base for EA’s developments in the mobile platform.
