The FIFA 23 RTTK tracker is complete, with the group stages of European competitions finished in early November. The big winner among these dynamic FIFA 23 cards was little Leo Messi, with a new OVR of 94, and others to enjoy significant boosts included Phil Foden and Thomas Muller. While the promo may be over, RTTK items are available throughout the season. You can see them all in this guide, thanks to our complete FIFA 23 RTTK tracker.
What are FIFA 23 RTTK cards?
The Road To The Knockouts campaign is directly tied to real-life performances and results in the group stages of the three main European competitions. Cards received an initial attributes boost when compared to their regular item, and could score two further upgrades based on two specific criteria.
They received the first boost if and when their team won two group stage matches, and the second if their team managed to quality for the knockout stage. In case you’re not up to speed on European competitions, the three featured in the promo are the Champions League, Europa League, and Europa Conference League.
Who is in FIFA 23 RTTK Team 1?
FIFA 23 RTTK Team 1 landed on Friday, October 7, with a familiar face as its marquee item: Lionel Messi. The Argentine wizard got a new overall rating of 92, which zoomed up to 94 once PSG qualified for the knockout stages. It means that while Messi was overtaken by Karim Benzema atop this year’s FIFA 23 ratings, he’s already picked up a card which will cost a small fortune throughout the season. (1.5 million coins, as of mid-November.)
Other outstanding cards from the campaign’s launch night included Chelsea signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (ST, 89), Manchester City maestro Phil Foden (LW, 88), and Liverpool defender Ibrahima Konate (CB, 85). All of these were available in packs until Friday, October 13 and on the transfer market for the rest of the season. Want some decent threads to show off your super-powered singings? Then you need our guide to the best FIFA 23 kits.
Was there a FIFA 23 RTTK Team 2 leak?
Surprisingly not – indeed, there was no FIFA 23 RTTK Team at all. Instead, the week after we received a brand new campaign: FIFA 23 Rulebreakers. It launched on Friday, October 14, and this time a second team was guaranteed for Friday, October 21.
How else can I get FIFA 23 RTTK items?
Much like FIFA 23 AFC Richmond cards, one RTTK card was only available by completing in-game objectives. It belongs to Inter Milan wing-back Robin Gosens (LWB, 84). To earn the German you needed to complete four sets of tasks, such as assisting five goals with through balls in Squad Battles. That challenge ended on Friday, October 14. Gosens finished the campaign with an OVR of 86.
Also available away from the transfer market was Spurs’ Dejan Kulusevski (RW, 85). To unlock him you needed to complete a trio of Squad Building Challenges (SBCs), such as a squad with a minimum in-game rating of 86.
Later SBC rewards included PSV speedster Savio (RW, 85) and Milan midfielder Ismael Bennacer (CDM, 84). These cards, along with their final ratings, have been added to the full list of all FIFA 23 Rulebreakers at the foot of this guide.
Will we still get FIFA 23 RTTF cards?
Inevitably, yes. The group stages of the three RTTK competitions came to a close in early November, shortly before the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. As a result there will be no further RTTK upgrades. FIFA 23 RTTF (Road To The Finals) forms the traditional sequel to RTTK, and the FIFA 22 equivalent dropped on Friday, February 19, 2022. So expect the FIFA 23 version to launch sometime around Valentine’s Day of 2023.
