Weekend league standards dropped?

I generally play until I hit 18 wins and stop. A typical weekend will see my go 18-12 or similar.

18-4 this weekend and winning by 4 or 5 goals margins. Is everyone retired ready for FIFA 18?

    It makes sense that the "elite" are now tired of playing the same style and pushing the same buttons for an entire year.

    On the plus side I've played some slightly more diverse teams.

    Kante, Butland, Son and co have accounted for maybe 80% of my opposition rather than the usual 95%

    Same for me on friday, even till now.
    but im at 14 out of 32 cause of dc and cause fifa became ****, had one game i deserved to loose, the rest i dominated the game and my players decided to pass the ball to my oponent so he could score in the 90th minute.

    Chaos of a lagfest and the thing we are not allowed to mention all over me this weekend (playing on PC).

    I won 8 in a row to hit 18, I know the ELO will be waiting to screw me over. I definitely won't be giving it the chance!

    Games have been terrible for me.

    No shape to my team, playing vs teams that look to have 11 attribute cards... Can't get my CMs to cover the back line even on PTB. Just giving me nothing when I'm playing vs teams with full high/medium CMs that are religiously perched on top of the line of my opponents back 4 and covering all angles.

    Just had no answer, this or last weekend. My team has been a flop, always on the back foot whilst my opponent looks tightly sprung and always aggressive. I should be playing attacking and press 70% of games. But the last 2 weekends I'm flipping CT's through every game just to counter my opponents aggression. Almost feels like the CTs are completely redundant - no visible difference no matter what I set for pressure or build up speed, aggression, et al. Dead AI mechanics.

    I'm doubting even the point of investing anything into 18.

    This. It all started pretty well for me too. I needed 10 wins in 16 attempts to hit The Elite. I then lost 6 games in a row and finished in my customary Gold 1 position. 6 in a row Jesus it was bad everything just went wrong in those games lol.
    Massive win streaks then massive losing streaks. Weird this game...

    i have the same problem, i think it has something to do with the connection delay (you have it they don't), nothing you can do really

    When you go on a win-streak your estimated level opponent increases, so depending on your skill level. This can reduce the player pool, you will be more likely to face high ping opponents.

    I started 11/2 but left it at 25/12. Lost 2 of last 3 to blow elite 3 not for the first time. Work in the morning so a blessing in disguise

    Dropped? Tell that to that 92 rated Premiership 4-3-2-1 crab-walking team I was facing in my last WL game this weekend. I needed one win to get Elite 3. Lost 3 or 4 to 1 with 2 goals straight from kick-off...
