Managed to qualify on the first week, played 9 games and lost 6. Since then I usually manage about 2-3 attempts at the weekly tourneys, and usually lose in the finals or the semi final.
A friend of mine who's slightly better than me qualifies ever week, this week he has a 12-12 record and he says he doesn't want to play anymore because it's so exhausting.
So my question is, should I actually attempt at qualifying every week, endure the sweat and stress of the tourneys and the actual WL, just so I could maybe play 10-15 games and probably win no more that 5-8 of them?
Or should I just focus on less stressful game modes?
If I knew I could reach Gold it would probably be easier to decide, but I don't have time to play more than 15 games during that time, and judging by my current playing ability, I doubt I'll win even half of that.
I think I'll play it once a month just for the rewards, but that's it. It's also really hard to manage finishing the necessary games for the rewards, as I only got through 31 games. I hurt my knee in real life and have a some free time now away from real life commitments, but the WL games just put me in such a foul mood that I don't want to finish the forty games and I just don't have it in me, WL or not, to sit in front of my Xbox for that long anymore.
Also, the gameplay is fun in the sense that everyone is trying their hardest and you might face some good players to test yourself. It is good practice.
At the same time, 40 matches in three days is a lot. It doesn't leave a lot of time and energy for anything else, and I don't really think it's healthy.
Personally, I just want to go hard for a full month so that I can try to get some gold IFs and one of the special kits. I failed to qualify in the first week of November, so will likely target December for all four weeks. Once I've achieved that goal, I'll probably only play FUT Champs casually when I feel like it.
Yeah, I can do 25-30 games max before giving up, but you will improve playing the WL, even if just 10 games or so for practice. Focus less on the rewards and just enjoy playing and the challenge, don't get upset if you lose etc. Try out different teams\players to make it more fun.
My advice is to play through seasons Friday-Sunday if possible. Winning D2 or holding D1 is qualification for next week. It's much easier because all the best players are playing WL so you'll find it easier in higher divs.
Get well soon pal
I got Gold last week, going worse this week but I don't have the will to finish to find out if I can make it. To be honest for weekly rewards I would rather buy the packs...I would pay not to play, that is sad. Unless you are elite or top 100 it's only worth it in my opinion for the monthly rewards and even then you aren't guaranteed anything useful to you.
I'll probably skip the weekly tourneys and focus on single match and the occasional seasons match. If I get lucky and get to Div1 I'll give the WL a shot.
The prizes on offer in the WL are way better than just playing seasons or single matches at the weekend.
Just treat it as any other weekend, play your normal number of games and see what you get. Don't put pressure on yourself to get a certain number of wins.
