How do Thunderstruck upgrades work in EAFC 24?

In the next 4 rounds of domestic fixtures from when they were released (Nov 24th), Thunderstruck items will receive overall and Playstyle boosts based on their team’s performance:

  • 1 win = +1 upgrade
  • 2 wins = +2 Playstyles
  • 3 wins = +1 additional upgrade

Active male and female players will see boosts based on the performance of their current team, while Icons have a specific team from their previous clubs selected. Great if you’re Gerd Muller based on the high-flying and free-scoring Bayern. Less good if you’re Johan Cruyff based on Ajax’s record-breaking bad form (although they look to be turning it around).
