OTW Dembele gets bump as FUT 17 releases Bundesliga upgrades, downgrades

Poor Jerome Boateng.

The fourth round of EA Sports’ “Ratings Refresh” is upon us, this time with Bundesliga players on the receiving end of some juicy upgrades and downgrades. This follows the first four round of ratings adjustments from the Premier League, Serie A (aka “Calcio A”), Ligue 1, and then La Liga.

Jerome Boateng’s injury spell and reportedly being somewhat out of favor got to the ratings folks as we see him take a one overall rating dive. If you happen to have Ones to Watch Ousmane Dembele of Dortmund fame, well, you just got yourself quite the pacey upgrade. Dembele’s BVB teammate Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang also sees his stats continue to soar, benefitting those who invested in his in-form or SBC cards.

As with all these updates, it’s important to remember how special cards are impacted. Per EA:

Upgrades AND downgrades apply to new non-inform players found in packs. Non-IF players in your Club will not receive an upgrade or a downgrade.

If an upgraded player’s new OVR rating equals or surpasses his existing first in-form’s rating, his IFs will get an upgrade.

An exception is made for lower rated players with significant upgrades.

Does not apply to Movember or Ultimate Scream items.

If an upgraded player’s new OVR rating does not equal or surpass his existing in-form’s rating, his IFs will not get an upgrade.

However, if an upgraded player with an existing IF gets upgraded across Quality tiers (eg. Silver to Gold), his lower-quality IF will not get an upgrade. This preserves the in-form’s high value.

Downgrades to non-IF players will not affect their in-forms or special items if they happen to have them (which judging by the downgrade seems unlikely).
