FIFA 12 Achievements

How Great is that?

Find a team of the week player in an Ultimate Team pack 

This achievement is mostly based on luck. Each week there's a new Team of the Week, so each week there are different players that will unlock this achievement.

The achievement unlocks before the firework animation and the name of a player in the pack appear. If you see those and have no achievement, you won't get it.

TOTW players can be Bronze, Silver and Gold. This means you can get them from all available packs. I got the achievement from a 750 coins Bronze pack, so it is not necessary to spend all your coins on Gold packs (although they do offer the biggest chance).

Important Note: some people say that they did unlock the achievement, but the player (whose card was black) did not show up in the TOTW selection. This may suggest that TOTW subs, which are not shown at the TOTW selection also count for this.

Important Note #2: This achievement may strongly increase the time total to 1000

This is the most stupid achievement in Fifa 12 considering that this is based on pure luck! and its just another way to force people in to spending more Microsoft points for their own benefit.

Maybe because of this achievement, they'll up the chances of getting a good player which is in the team of the week. But yeah, still a pretty stupid achievement.

@ 1 words right out of my mouth.last year i only got one player and i opened loads of packs by saving coins not to sure ill be getting this 20g unless really lucky

ugh, a dumb luck achievement. There is always going to be some arrogant nub that hardly plays FIFA, buys one pack and gets a TotW player, and then loyal players that play for hours and hours won't get it. I normally end up being the latter.

They should have made it 'Get a team of the week player' then you could save up your points and just buy him in the store/auction house. This achievement is stupid and it's a shame because this list is amazing, it's just dumb how this one let's it down. I hope they patch the game when it comes out so that TOTW players are pretty regular or this could cost people a lot is points which is very unfair, achievements are made for replay value and should not be earned from people paying their hard earned money.

Bad EA.

This is easier than it sounds, i opened a few packs and got TOTW Shay Given and achievement unlocked ive had 3 other TOTW players so far after that...

Sigh, just EA trying to make all achievement hunters buy more and more packs. I can see this being a pain for people with every achievement but this one.

funny how you must pay for packs for a achievement. i guess this is their way of doing it without any DLC. EA loves to take your money

Can understand how this achievement could of f***ked me over & annoyed theres one like this. Can't believe my dumb luck of getting it after opening second pack which was free for returning to ultimate team. Hopefully this means for everyone else that its not that hard & will come eventually :)

I know this is a plan to make money but it does seem easier to get IF players this year

Saturday, October 01, 2011 @ 04:31:30 AM

@10 yeah brilliant point. Dam Fifa players - just play the game properly and
earn credits by playing matches :/ don't have to pay do you ? So do it the non
pay way and just ( what I believe is the point in buying a game ) AND PLAY IT!

Comment #14 by The Super Kill
Saturday, October 01, 2011 @ 02:41:33 PM

@1 .....don't blame EA for this, as packs don't cost MSP, you can buy them with money you earn from tourneys, ya know the point of FUT. BTW if you plan on getting the cheevo for opening 100 packs, odds are one of those will have TOTW.

@14....actually Packs do cost microsoft points if you use your eyes for what there for but you can spend in game money aswell. So yea i blame EA but i got the achievement today so i don't really care anymore lol

i havent got this chiev yet but ive got the season ticket which is 20% off downloads so gold premium costs 96msp so ill have more chances to get it and the best player i got in a pack was julio cesar

Comment #19 by The Super Kill
Tuesday, October 04, 2011 @ 05:08:35 PM

@16...I didn't say you could't buy them for msp, well aware that you can (have two eyes :) ). People were just making it seem that you HAD to. FIFA 13 won't be out for another year, so if you use coins (free) odds are you'll get one in no time. Fifa did pretty darn good with the pack this year imo. Just make sure you have the squad selected you want to get cards for and in my experience you get something you can use every other pack, and something you can sell for good money about every 5-7.

Hi guy's, I am getting pretty annoyed with this one!! I have the achevio for
the 100 packs (all of which were gold) but just cant get this one...

To the people that have this, have you been getting the speical packets or the
normal ones? I got the Ulitmate Edition and in the four started packets I got
a Rooney and two Torres so thats how have I have got the 100 packet achevio
and funded it!!

Please if anyone has any advice let me know. Thanx

Saturday, October 08, 2011 @ 08:13:48 AM

@21 I got the 100 pack achievement yesterday, and I've just this very second got a TOTW Ochoa, so I'd say its by 110 pack or something. Just keep on trying. I was ready to give up!!
I was buying the Special Packs too, so you can get them in the Special ones.

Good Luck!

Sunday, October 09, 2011 @ 06:00:29 PM

I got this achievement and I don't know how, didn't get any totw player at all?
I opened over 150 packs, like 175 I think, (mostly the bronze ones of 400 coins)

Comment #25 by ravingeddie
Tuesday, October 11, 2011 @ 06:17:54 AM

this is a ball buster big time, anyone with masses of coins fancy buying any of my players, soi can fund some packs, i will also buy a 15k player aswell, in order to get the achievo for that aswell, i've bought and spend may a coins on these packs, up to about 70 i think, and got over 200 gold players and my team is just about 20mil, am i doing sommat wrong, or is this the way it is, and does anyone know what the black cards are when you see em for sale for like 20000+coins...
and anyone know how you do the 360 spin to turn a defender, i've tried pressing everything, and every combo.. thanks... tag Ravingeddie

Got the pack king achievement but no in-form yet :(... a bit annoyed as my brother got an in-form (that silver Korean guy - only silver, but still in-form), and my mate for in-form Nani... he only bought 4 packs... :(

Comment #30 by TeamORillo
Saturday, October 15, 2011 @ 01:43:18 PM

Hey I know it's a matter of luck, but are the chances better if you buy Gold packs instead of Bronze or Silver? Or is it more about whether you buy the packs with three rares instead of one?

Thanks in advance for advice.

wat a shit achievement

Comment #32 by budden11
Sunday, October 16, 2011 @ 10:02:22 AM

Hi everyone, i think this is glitched, I have check the Ultimate Team Team of the week for 12th October, and I have been working on getting 100 matches and 100 packs by completing Highlands tournament over and over, and just spending winnings on Bronze packs which landed me this achievement with no team of the week players inside, possible luck-based glitch, otherwise I will not complain about this.

Dis you bought some premium bronze packs or normal ones?

Comment #34 by Davidako
Monday, October 17, 2011 @ 08:12:05 AM

I wasn't expecting to get this one since I only use coins for packs and never got an in form all year in FUT11. I open Bronze packs and haven't even got to 100 yet but got some bronze team of the week guy.

Comment #35 by Davidako
Monday, October 17, 2011 @ 08:39:44 AM

I got mine in a normal Bronze pack, not a Premium.

ive bought no more than 12 packs all the 3 rare gold ones and had 2 totw players wasnt great but you defo will get em like i said try buying your packs shortly after the release of em :/

Comment #39 by Vyron360
Wednesday, October 19, 2011 @ 06:06:02 PM

Well I hope this means that every player that was ever in a TotW selection will get you this achievement, which means that every week there is more chance for you to get it.

Does it count if one of your players you've already got gets selected in a future TOTW

Comment #42 by budden11
Thursday, October 20, 2011 @ 05:02:29 PM

I was buying normal Bronze packs for your information and recieved this achievement, I believe through a glitch as no TOTW players were inside, best player was 56.

Just got this via the happy hour packs on the last one. Got David Silva IF 88 rating and i have opened well over 150 packs so am glad to get this over and done with and can now concentrate on actually playing some matches.

Comment #50 by iVengencex
Saturday, October 29, 2011 @ 12:59:18 PM

Guys i got this today, but the thing is i opened a pack and there wasnt even a
TOTW player in my pack, i was happy because i got the gamescore but pretty pissed about not getting a player, anyone else get this?

This is great. I've had one TOTW player in every pack ';ve bought and i've played UT since Fifa 10. 980G on this game it seems.....

Comment #52 by LIXFIFTY
Sunday, October 30, 2011 @ 09:36:37 PM

@51 ive played ultimate team from thevery 1st day it s released on fifa 09 and ive opened over a 100 gold premiums and not got an IF, best i have got was hulk, neymar, hart, ashley cole, walcott and wilshire, EA must be making a mint out of this, almost certain they will put this in fifa 13, and their servers are shit, i keep getting kicked out of UT matches cos ea cut me off and i geta loss, EA are wankers basically!

Comment #53 by MMIIKKEE
Sunday, October 30, 2011 @ 10:58:18 PM

i've played this game since fifa 10, and i NEVERR got a TOTW player... and thats that i opened MANY packs for 11, and 10, so HOPEFULLY nowww, i can get some luck as i opened atleast 20 packs already, wish me luck.

I've opened over 150 packs with coins and about 4000 microsoft points and got nothing but shit players. Then my friends who hardly play fifa get them in there first packs. This achievement is bullshit

Comment #55 by eMiN10

What and when is happy hour, I've never heard of it

Comment #57 by San g86
Friday, November 04, 2011 @ 10:25:41 PM

agree with #56, happy hour I thought was in previous fifa games..but judging by few comments on this cheivo, they seem to get the inform cards within the first hour of when team of the week is updated, every wednesday 6pm U.K. Time..duno if this is when so-called happy hour is..

On a personal note my friend has brought 2000 points along with playing single tournaments on UT and has recieved 3 IF players at random times... And then theres me spending 4000 MSP and throughout the whole thing only recieving one player 85+ that beinf lavezzi..not even being IF..

EA are wankaaas and need to die

Comment #58 by Eoin32
Monday, November 07, 2011 @ 11:07:37 AM

@57 just keep on saving up coins and then when there is a bronze totw player just buy tones of bronze packs, but i have bought 50 gold packs from coins/microsoft points and still no totw

Comment #59 by JDAckers
Wednesday, November 09, 2011 @ 09:35:31 PM

Finally got a totw player today. I got it at about 6.30pm in my second gold pack. I had 50k ready to blow on packs in the hope of getting one, very pleased it only took two. Claudio Pizzaro [85] is mine!

Comment #60 by Eoin32
Saturday, November 19, 2011 @ 01:27:48 PM

Comment #64 by TeeRod23
Thursday, December 01, 2011 @ 11:17:53 AM

Worst achievement ever. Spent 230k on gold packs on wed at 6pm when the new totw just came out and no IF player. Also spent 100's of thousands on over 100 gold/silver and bronze packs before that and still nothing. Thankfully i got Aguero in 1 of the packs so i can sell him and buy some more next wed hopefully with more luck. Urghhhh.

WOW, I just got TOTW Lavezzi and no achievement!
The thing is I bought a 15k Gold pack, got a "free" pack in it, opened it and there he was. All this was using the web app. (Ive been playing FIFA the last hour on my xbox and no achievent yet) Maybe becuase I used the web app? because it was a free pack?

Comment #70 by CDGreatness
Wednesday, December 14, 2011 @ 03:12:07 PM

Has anyone gotten this achievement through the bronze pack glitch lately? I've heard if you get one of four transfer players it will pop, but i've opened over 500 bronze packs and have around 1400 bronze players and still no achievement.

Friday, December 23, 2011 @ 05:23:04 AM

Basically @ 75 , TOTW Come's Out Every Wednesday At 6 PM So U Should Buy Any Of The Gold Pack's As Soon As It Come's Out Or When The Happy Hour Pack Is Available U Should Try Buying That , Hope This Helped .

Sunday, December 25, 2011 @ 08:51:46 PM

After opening, and I'm not kidding you, around 1000 packs, I finally got this achievement. I have been trying since October to get this from the bronze pack glitch. I had right around 1650 bronze players in my club before I got Wesley Thomas in a pack and it popped. Before my current club, I got the open 100 packs achievement and my club value was around 70,000,000 before my team was mysteriously deleted. (My account also got hacked and someone spent around $100 on packs that I didn't authorize.) The point of my long story is to hang in there and to verify the bronze glitch still works as of December 25. Good luck guys!

Got an IF Mills (64) today!! Opened a bronze pack for contracts, then tried the 1500 bronze pack and there he was. Only thing I can recommend is that you try for the bronze glitch during weeks that have in-form bronze players to further increase your odds. 1500 packs might be good bets too, that was my second or third overall purchase of them and I have seen other people saying they got the achievement from them.
Good luck!!

Comment #94 by IcedWalnut
Monday, January 16, 2012 @ 07:57:50 AM

absolute joke of an achievement bought 50 packs at this stage and no in form , my friend buys 4 and gets 2 in-forms in the one packet on top of bale and Alex in the others... so unfair ... is there any tricks on how to increase my chances of getting an inform player ?

I heard that if you get a player on the transfer list it unlocks this achievement too.

Also does anyone know definitely when happy hour is? I live in Ireland so I presume that we have the same happy hour as the UK,

please help! I need a trick or something to help improve my chances of getting an in form player in a pack

just got it at last, load of trading to get coins and in the end i got in one of my free packs that came out on the 1st of each month. I got mine on wednesday at 08:30. I guess not many people are opening packs at that time as they are waiting for the new team of the week.

Normal Gold pack. Player was rubbish but good enough to complete 1000G

Not fair i have a great ultimate team and my m8 starts his ultimate team today(been in snow all day btw) and he opens his first ever gold pack with mspoints (i dont use ms points) then he gets it. Any tips on getting it?

Finally! I have got this bloody achievement just minutes ago (at the time
of writing)! No MicroSoft points spent either, so it's a moral victory over EA as well!
Opened a Gold Jumbo pack, NO BLACK (IN-FORM) CARDS, but at the very right of the pile, I found Sotirios Kyrgiakos, a rare card. As a result, he is now one of my favourite players ;)
The only advice I can give is to save your coins for Gold Jumbo packs; standard packs only have 1 rare card, Premium gold packs have 3 rares, while Jumbos have 7 (although not all of these cards are player cards; I found a good few rare contract and formation cards en route to this achievement).
If they ever get released again, it may be worth trying to earn enough coins for Gold Player or Gold Premium Player packs, since you are more likely to fin

Just on a note on how I got it : Mine was a Bronze Pack for 1.5k or 400 one of them and it popped with no player.

Same thing just happened to me. Opened a premium bronze pack for 1,500 coins. No in form player but the achievement pops.

Judging by the amount of people this has suddenly happened to (I've been trying to months to get it), I would say a logical explanation is EA have realised how ridiculous it was and is therefore pretty much giving them out to everyone.

Pleased now, as I think 1000G should be a doddle now I have that one.

I got this last night from buying a bronze jumbo pack (1500 coins). Didn't get a team of the week player but I think I got a transfer player. On the right was Dalla Valle, a 63 rare bronze ST from Fullham.

@ #83: same thing happened with me. i was buying gold packs though, not bronze. but the achievement popped, and i have not one TOTW player. i was pissed. wanted to get a TOTW player and sell him for $$$$. sir alex ferguson was in the pack but i doubt he counts. muamba was in the pack too, which was weird since he had the incident. there were good formation cards but no black player. its all too weird. and no i checked the bench. i don't have an in form player, yet i got the achievement

Got this on my 6th pack. Got the Brazilian keeper from this weeks totw. phew! I do however think this kind of thing should not be allowed, it is purely a money spinner.

Thursday, April 05, 2012 @ 07:48:40 AM

CBA to read all the comments, but I can confirm that you don't nessecarily need a 'black' player for this...

A few months ago, Vedran Corluka (tottenham/bayern) was in TOTW. I got the 'regular' version in a pack in that week, but still got the achievement. (you can imagine me being pissed when I popped the achievement, jsut to find out it was the regular yeah: BS achievement)

if anyone is struggling with this achievement i actually bought an in form for 15K buy now to get the marquee signing achievement then opened a bronze pack, it glitched and said i got this achievement but i got no in form, but i still did get the achievement, maybe try this and see if it works?

Comment #133 by ajshark
Sunday, April 15, 2012 @ 06:59:04 PM

I got this achievement and no players were black or even in the TOTW i checked many times it may be glitched!

Monday, April 16, 2012 @ 05:13:19 AM

Finally got this today and it was in a Premium Bronze back. Must have been one of the rare cards. I didn't see any of my guys in the team of the week but it must have been glitched.

I suggest using your coins to buy packs when going for the £85m squad value achievement until you get this. Afterwards, just keep buying gold players as cheap as possible.

Sunday, April 22, 2012 @ 12:17:16 PM

@#134 Same. I however must have been the luckiest ever as i got this on my first ever pack that I bought which was the lowest value bronze. I got no totw players so I am guessing its glitched.

Comment #137 by PP15
Tuesday, May 01, 2012 @ 03:18:49 PM

I have opened about 30 pacs. recently I opened a bronze premium pac and got the acheivement but no actual IF player.

This is defenetly a glitched acheivement.

Good luck to everyone!

wow lol. got this on a free pack i earned, and it was only the 4th overall pack i've opened. i didn't have any TotW players in it either, or current transfer players. i got Euthu, but he was on last weeks transfer list, not this weeks. i don't care, i'll take it

Comment #148 by GreyIC
Monday, September 24, 2012 @ 12:56:51 AM

Reading all the comments above, and based on my own personal experience, I suspect the player just needs to have been in POTW once upon a time during the season.

I opened exactly - and in this order - 5 Bronze normal packs, 5 Bronze premium packs, and this achievement popped on my 7th Bronze jumbo premium pack. I'm fairly certain these were the players in that pack:

If someone can confirm if any of those were once POTW, that might be how the achievement is gained. Note, the achivement does not say "Find a current team of the week player..." but "Find a team of the week player..."

Monday, October 01, 2012 @ 01:54:35 PM

I bought an 400 coin bronze pack and I got it.
I looked at the players that I got and the players from the TOTW and tey weren't corresponding.
What mracree9 says could be true.
