    And isn't the matchmaking system essentially ELO ranked matchmaking?

    No

    How do you figure? Unless they straight up lied to us, their matchmaking process is based off of form which is a rating system. Matching players with other similarly skilled players. I know you had difficulty grasping that concept at first thinking someone who loses after going 20-0 would be on 0 form (which lol), but what they're doing is definitely ELO based matchmaking. As for your example of the odd couple of games having weird matches, like you said, maybe their algorithm changes if they can't find an opponent close enough that's searching at the same time so that's why you may end up facing a guy who's 18-15 if you're 30-3. But that's an exception, not the standard.

    ELO refers to a system that is a bit more complex than "form".

    Therefore it's not an Elo based matchmaking system. Form is like Elo's little, slightly challenged brother.

    Lmao the last comment. I heard rumors you were switching to PS. Say it ain't so babe

    Depends on my welcome back packs.

    Still haven't pre-ordered the game.

    I might try PS next year yeah. Slightly bored of always playing the same people in champs.

    Have EA confirmed that it's the same as last year? Or are people just saying it's the same?

    Unless I've missed something they have never confirmed this is how it worked last year, think they mentioned form has always played a part in matchmaking for weekend league but there's tweaks every year or something along those lines

    Top 10 get 5 player picks. Does this mean they pick one from 5 players 5 times or do they receive 5 players and they receive them all?

    They get 5 packs with 5 players and 1 pick from each pack.

    Wonder how they’ll do the new monthly rewards as weekly

    As player picks like they said

    Chill out Skittles
    I get that, but how many reds per tier finish was what I was thinking.
    @WFCBagnall cheers for being helpful

    Silver - 1 red
    Gold - 2 reds
    Elite - 3 reds
    100-51 - 4 reds
    Top 50 - 5 reds

    Fantastic.
  • I wouldn’t have bothered with the WL that much if it was the same format as last year but 30 games and weekly reds makes it much more appealing to me.

    Take a boo EA

    It might be, but I hope it’s not if they want to encourage more people to play.

    That's another 2 weeks.

    No idea how many coins I will have by then.

    Probably something with Mbappe, Griez and Stoich or so.
