So I've just made it into Div. 1 for the first time in my FIFA career since 2013. Is there any advice or tips you seasoned vets could offer before I get myself relegated instantly?

Cheers in advance!

    Your team is great. If you get annoyed by your opponents, don't start playing the way they are. I noticed on myself if someone's playing like an as*hole, I start playing like one too. Just keep playing the way you usually do and you'll win games.

    If it's anything like Div. 4, Div. 3, and Div. 2, I will just play against IF Lukaku/ Martial every game ever....

    Well, I won 2, drew 2 and lost the rest...Not only did I get relegated from Div. 1, I got a case of ❤️❤️❤️❤️ (for about 4 games.) and dropped to Div. 3. Where I'm currently winning again. So that was fun...

    That would have worked actually (unfortunately). I went up one or two early in every game and then just got hammered in the second half.

    I honestly just wanted to get there to qualify for the WL. However, you are correct. The amount of real try-hards was crazy. First game in Div. 1 was a full silver squad which terrified me for good reason. Went up 2-0 at half and lost 4-2. Almost every game after that was cheap BPL squads or TOTY Ronaldo variants. I felt like I played well. I made good chances, scored and defended well. I just kept conceding long shots and rebounds. I don't think I've ever given up that many 30-35 yard screamers. People in Div. 1 really know how to finish.

    By people in Div 1 I mean, Lukaku...

    Stay calm and be patient. A lot of players keep the ball and grind you down so just relax, enjoy and don't stress if they've made 15 passes without moving behind you they're waiting for you to panic and dive into a challenge. I used to find it was full of people just sprinting at me all game but it's more like a game of chess a lot of the time now.
