An idea to break this EPL dead lock, how about if you could select a tier to play in. It would also open up bronze and silvers again. The proposal being you could use these TIERS in Seasons or WL. Just select what Tier you wish to compete in before the game and have a team that matches those requirements , they could scale the rewards accordingly, though that may be detrimental to the idea of trying to push away from everyone using the EPL etc
The tiers groups are just an idea, thrown together from looking at the list on FUThead of how many golds cards etc are available per league. They could be changed or even a 5th of 6th tier added, it's just a theoretical idea.
If both players are using teams from the same tier I see no real danger, no advantage or disadvantage. I know people would "suss out" the top players from each tier and those players would be more popular. But it has to be better than what we have now where 1 league is dominating. This at least opens up every league as a usable alternative.
EPL, La Liga, Bundes, Calcio A, Ligue 1, Icons
Liga Nos, Supa Lig, Sogaz Russian, Bancomer MX, Primera Div, Eredivisie, MLS
EFL. Pro League, Hellas, La Liga 1,2,3, Ukrayina, Raiffeisen, Bundesliga 2, Jameel League, Liga Dimayer
All other leagues, these leagues all contain less than 10 golds.
