How to get your ELO down?

I feel like starting a new account since I just keep getting destroyed by 400k+ teams.

If I lose 6 in a row I would like to face some lesser opponents in a row.

So how do I drop my ELO rating?

    You shouldn't play online for about a month. There is no way matchmaking can even be close this early. Best thing to do is let good players make their way through divisions and start in a month or so.

    Dont really care about how much an opponents squad cost, but generally speaking the amount of coins a team cost at this point in the game in FIFA is releated to them atleast being an avid player. Thats why I said the 400k+.

    Ive been on a steady pattern of battering someone one game then getting battered the next. Never been a big fan of the fifa matchmaking, personally I think it should just go off the division/round youre in and try to find the best connection.

    I mean, you are kinda answering your own question... The game is only fully being released today, what did you expect to face in Early Access and Early Release via a more expensive edition of the game ?

    I also disagree, just cause someone throw FIFA points at a game or can trade doesn't mean they can

    True, but if they have 400k teams at this stage in the game they are most likely players that are quite familiar with FIFA. I want to play 12 year old Jimmy who has one hand and is blind on one eye at this moment, thats how bad I am atm.

    I think the trouble is that everyone is starting from the bottom so divisions haven't yet settled. Some of the opponents I've faced in D9 and D8 are clearly D1 players that smash me.

    Bear in mind that in the main only hardcore players are going to be pre ordering, today will see a huge influx of more casual players presumably.

    Yesterday morning I lost 5 in a row.

    Went offline and did the defending tutorial, altered my custom tactics a little and won 12 in a row

    4-3-1-2 or 4-3-2-1

    I lowered my pressure until I was happy with how the team sat then increased the aggression until I found the right balance
