What is Limitless Wildcard and what does it do?

The limitless wildcard is a chip in UCL Fantasy that allows you to change your whole team for just one matchday and without budget restrictions.

It means that once you activate a limitless wildcard in Fantasy Champions League, you can build your squad with an unlimited budget exceeding the usual number of 100 m. You have unlimited transfers, and no budget restrictions, but it is for one matchday only. After that matchday, your squad reverts to your previous team.

How many limitless wildcards are there in UCL Fantasy?

There is just one Limitless Wildcard chip in UCL Fantasy, so you can use this chip just once.

When you can use Limitless Wildcard?

You can use the limitless wildcard chip on any matchday except Matchday 1 and Matchday 7 (R16 1st leg) as we have naturally unlimited transfers before these two matchdays.

What happens if I use free transfers before activating Limitless Wildcard?

If you have already made some transfers before the matchday and then activated limitless, all your transfers (and points deductions) will be canceled.

Can you cancel the activation of Limitless Chip?

Once you activate Limitless Wildcard AND CONFIRM TRANSFERS, you cannot revert it back and cancel it.

When is the best time to use the Limitless Wildcard Chip?

Usually, the best time to use a limitless Wildcard is in the Group stage, so in MD2 – MD6. On Matchday 7 our budget increases by 5 million – to 105 million (+budget increase caused by price changes).

So, we all have a higher budget in the knockout stage which makes using the limitless wildcard chip there less effective. And there are also fewer players to pick from in the Knockout stage.

Also, fixtures in the Group stage are better than in the latter stage of the Champions League. And with limitless, you always want to target fixtures where big teams play against “whipping boys” because those are matches with a lot of goals.

So, to sum things up: The best time to use the limitless chip is in the group stage, on a matchday, when many good teams play against weaker teams, so there are likely going to be high scores (such as 4:0, 5:0 etc.). And you want mainly players from teams that are likely to score a lot of goals in your limitless chip team.

What is a good score on Limitless Wildcard?

There is really no clear answer on what is a good score on limitless. Every matchday of UCL Fantasy is different: some are high-scoring and some are low-scoring.

Usually, you should aim to get 100+ points on your Limitless.

But always check on how many points other Fantasy Champions League managers (who are not on limitless) get and what their approximate average is. If you beat their average by 15+ points, that is a good score.
