My last 6 opponents had the d1 winning shirt this is ridiculous I thought this was my retirement home I won 4 out of 6 but every game is like playing myself :) since the last maintenance the matchmaking has changed for the cup imo so I decided to go back to d1 seasons wow the games are so much easier is this just me or does anyone else experience this?

    Once players get so cheap its more about going in cups for easier opponents than needing the coins from divisions.

    Same. Happens every once in a while that you get a hard opponent, but usually winning it isn't that big of a problem.

    I've had mostly decent, D1/2 level opponents in every cup round for a while now. Only very occasionally get someone obviously lower. Found it kinda strange. I've played mostly cups since about December, been up to D1 alongside that, and up till the last month or so, the cup was definitely more mixed and generally easier. Atm it's pretty much the same level of difficulty as seasons.
    Not that I mind, it's nice having to compete properly for a trophy... rather than getting dumped out by some random conglomeration of terrible players in the hands of some unbelievably lucky 10yr old.

    Yeah I agree on that, I still get opponents that rage at 1-0 :D

    I've won the gold Cup 56 times, over the last week or two I'm lucky to get through the first round. Something has happened with the match making.

    It seems like everyone has gone from divisions to the cup because of the lag and stuff... So EA notice it and think, right, how can we still screw everyone over... Let's mess with the gold cup match making...

    The games a joke, handicapped to ❤️❤️❤️❤️ lost 4 in a row now and in all the games my keeper has scored an own goal in the final mins, I can win every division up to 4 then when i get into div 3 I always win 1 and lose the rest, never draw or win more than 1, matchmaking is a joke and so is your opponent getting help in the last mins of a game to get the win every time

    Yep I'm on about 50 wins with ease in the past couple of months now I'm winning 1 cup in 3 attempts with almost every match at a high level before I could rage quit an opponent in the 1st 2 rounds within the first 30 min almost everytime now it's extra time and pens.

    We have to take into account that practically everything EA does is to try and manipulate us in to doing what they want us to do... Which is usually to make us buy packs... But they're getting more and more sneaky about it....

    So by trying to push the average and poor players away from the gold cup and seasons being the mess they are, what is it they want us to do now?....

    Exactly.... I can only assume it's a last big push to make us play draft....

    I'd rather play The Division!

    How do you find out how many times you have won it?

    On console? Can't every remember looking at it. It's probably been staring me in the face all the time and I've never noticed!

    Maybe a lot of the lesser players have given up and gone to play something else. Only a few glutens for punishment like myself still playing this game.

    Dunno I've started seasons now and I flew from div 10 to div 6 without losing a game, scoring 58 goals and conceding 8.

    really? i've been really enjoying them lately. come up against the occasional difficult opponent but normally i can get to at least the semi's with my eyes closed.
    if all the normal div 1 guys are there i may try my hand at divisions again. i've got 6 points from 2 games in div 2 and would like to win division 1 at least once this year.
