FIFA 13 Achievements

In Form!

Find a team of the week player in a pack  

Note: This achievement is also listed as Secret, it will most likely take the longest out of all of them because it is not within your control.

Remember the team of the week from the other achievement? This achievement requires you to get a team of the week player in a pack. This achievement is solely based on luck and very annoying. Team of the week players can be bronze, silver or gold so they are possible to obtain from any pack. A good method is to save up some Fifa Points as I find the odds are increased when you use them. Once you have some you should wait for the new TOTW which is released every Wednesday at 6pm gmt. Opening gold premium packs when it has been released will give you a higher chance of receiving a team of the week player.

Note: Fifa Points are bought using Microsoft Points so purchase at your own discretion. Also the achievement will unlock before the pack is fully opened.

If you don't want to waste Microsoft Points on one achievement then your only chance is to make thousands of coins use the same method and hope you get lucky. I do not recommend purchasing standard packs because you only get one rare in those so the odds of you receiving a TOTW player are even lower.

I got this in my 4th pack on Early Access. If it doesn't get carried across I am complaining. Took me until April last game.

this is rubbish, I would rather trade this achievement for something more fun and exciting. Another career mode based achievement would of been nice. doesn't help either that most players keep getting injured every 1-2 games making the coin farming a drag.

I only got this achievement in FIFA 12 last week... ha! It's all fun though, there's a good chance it'll pop up when going for Pack King, if not, I'll sell all my players and rebuy packs until it does!

Well I've now become resigned to the fact that I'll never have this achievement...

Man that 20G's gonna bug me though...

Can you get a player of the week from weeks ago? Or is it the team of the week now? How often do they update?

Is there a certain time period these players are available? I've been reading about Happy Hour? I don't know anything about UT, I've never really played it before.

The achievement that fifa will continuously put in year on year to try and milk as much money as they can from dedicated fifa fans and achievement hunters, but only after you've paid £40 for the game, and spent loads on previous fifas, aswell as offering a season ticket that from what i can tell will give u 1 gold pack a week and the equivilent to £3 off any dlc. Sorry to rant bit i spent 400k on packs last night to no avail and im not about to sit there and play 600 matches to get another 400k

Comment #16 by SupaKev10
Friday, October 12, 2012 @ 07:30:50 AM

You lot should think yourselves lucky, I use the web app a lot and got a TOTW GK last week. When I went onto my XBOX I got no achievement. How crap is that!!!!

Comment #17 by PP15
Friday, October 12, 2012 @ 02:07:27 PM

On FIFA 12 this acheivement was glitched, I got it without actually pulling a team of the week player.

Hopefully this year is also glitched, it's not good to depend on luck to get an acheivment

Monday, October 15, 2012 @ 02:55:36 PM

This is a crappy Achievement. Based on pure luck. I got one TOTW last year, opend over 100 goldpacks.
And the worst, is that to days before Fifa 13-release, i got a TOTW on the WEBAPP. FML.

So I´ve got 2 TOTW off over 200 packs in to games. Got the 50packs chivo some days ago..

Tuesday, October 23, 2012 @ 03:42:05 PM

Just gonna open a load of bronze packs when transferred players get released and try and get one of those if they still count as IF's.

Comment #29 by Ben leli
Thursday, October 25, 2012 @ 10:26:23 AM

Luck or what!!!!!!!!!!!

Comment #30 by PP15
Thursday, October 25, 2012 @ 10:51:24 PM

Can I get IF players with the free gold packs given by GameStop pre-order, or do I have to BUY the packs.

Comment #31 by Ben leli
Friday, October 26, 2012 @ 07:35:36 AM

#30 You can get the achievement with any pack regardless of whether you buy it or not. I got my IF player with the first (out of the three) free packs they give you when you start FUT for the first time

Can you only get IF players on the current TOTW roster? Or can you get one from a previous week?

Comment #39 by Grecio
Wednesday, December 26, 2012 @ 04:30:40 PM

Opened around 75 packs and got it. Very crappy one (Toni, worth 10k at most) but still happy. It is a very nasty achievement but did get me to play FUT and I now realise it is an awesome game mode :) Gl to everyone else.

Comment #40 by Grecio
Wednesday, December 26, 2012 @ 04:44:17 PM

#38 only from the current week. Previous TOTW players are not in the packs anymore. Try to follow EA sports on twitter when special packs are released to increase your chances to get one. I got mine from a special pack.

This is the one achievement on this Fifa that annoys me... I never get anything good in a pack, never mind an IF player

i got it after 250 packs shit one too finally

Comment #50 by Kempo10
Monday, January 21, 2013 @ 07:34:16 AM

None after 65 packs... I did get a Chelsea Benayoun card last week, which I hoped might pop it, because of the glitch last year, but it didn't... I now just have two different Benayouns in my club (stupid really)... Also now up to 52M club value, so onceim done with that, imma quicks ell all my cards & reinvest, to hopefully finally get my TOTW card in a pack...

Comment #51 by AzzaMac24
Tuesday, January 22, 2013 @ 06:41:32 AM

I remember getting this before because I got a player that had been transferred and it counted as an "in-form" player, so I'm hoping that it's the same this time around so I can risk a few packs in the summer transfer window as I tend not to buy packs now after getting pack king as I never seem to get anybody worthwhile.

Comment #52 by MrFalloutGuy
Wednesday, January 23, 2013 @ 02:23:34 PM

My very first inform was ivanovic in Fifa 12 after spending 1000000 coins on packs. I dont think i'll be getting this one too quick!

Can you get this on the webapp? I tend to buy and sell a lot
at work and would hate to get this on the app but for it not
to pop when I next boot up Ultimate Team on console. Can anyone

Comment #57 by dannydo100do1
Thursday, February 07, 2013 @ 12:52:07 PM

This one is just stupidly hard to get, it's all about luck. EA need to scrap these types of achievements for ones that actually require some skill.

Tuesday, March 19, 2013 @ 09:59:21 AM

Ok, I'm going to be the first to go on the scrounge looking for someone generous enough to donate to the cause.

Having spent £200,000 on Gold Premium packs, I'm still outstanding an In Form player.

I am on the verge of looking up ebay and forking out money to get some coins as I've played in excess of 700 Fifa games now and to be honest, I'm getting a little tired of it now.

Before I do that though I want to issue a plea to people who don't mind supporting fellow gamers!

If anyone who already has this achievement and has plenty of money in their kitty that they don't need, or if they don't use the Ultimate Team feature, please PM me, gamertag CBerry2013.

Any help at all would be appreciated, if no approaches I'll keep plugging on in the hope that one day it will finally pop

Sunday, April 21, 2013 @ 07:51:58 AM

Just got one from the Premium pack which was available in the happy hour! That pack will give you around 10-15 players with a higher chance on getting a rare one.

Comment #67 by Duval1n

I read that you can buy an IF from an auction, can someone confirm this??

Wednesday, May 01, 2013 @ 12:58:21 PM

Just spent 180k on gold and silver premium packs as there is 6 silvers and only 11 golds. This game is fucking shit more importantly EA are fucking shit and they can all eat my ass from now on, I just wish I could influence other people into not paying towards their evil corporation.

Comment #69 by Clarky08
Thursday, May 02, 2013 @ 04:25:52 AM

Got this on FIFA 12 relatively quickly. However still not got this on
FIFA 13 as yet. It's completely luck. I've tried all the tips
Such as purchase packs on Wednesday at 6pm uk time when
The new team of the week is out etc. Frustrating chievo!

Saturday, October 05, 2013 @ 10:10:29 PM

This better not be on the FIFA 14 achievement list... If it is make it worth like 1000G the odds of u getting this are way to small I have been trying and probably have opened over 100 packs. No inform cards. No team of the week cards.
