    Yeah, I’m awful so far. But not settled on anything yet so plenty of time. No rush, gets boring when game is no challenge anyway.

    My problem is I cant get nothing going in attack any pass forward is either intercepted or im tackled fairly easily. While my opponent runs ring around me.

    the aim of division rivals is that you should be matched up against players of close approximate skill, so around a 50% win rate would be expected unless you were placed in the wrong division

    Used to win D1 title most of the time in FIFA 18. I stopped playing once I hit 2k points yesterday. Usually I could create at least 3-5 clear chances per game and score enough goals to win most games. Now that they have ruined finishing I need like 10 chances for 1 goal. Usually not enough with the amount of random goals that u concede after long shots/random crosses/bycicle corners.

    Might be the connection. There are games when my players are letargic, reacting bad, always out of position and my opponents players are all over mine. And in another game things are going my way. Maybe it's the net connection, their servers, their script, i have no ideea. Something is not right for sure. I've experienced that in 18 also.

    Is there anything router wise I need to do to have the best possible connection for fifa? Maybe that 1 second reaction delay makes a big difference, never really looked into that stuff.

    I was a D1 player too but I don’t think I suck now, it just takes some time to get to that level again.

    D1 player before and now i win 2 and lose 1.. the only time i won more than 2 in a row was in the first 5games who i all won :p

    Seems logic that the ratio is around 50%... you get always matched up against someone of your level.. but it is annoying.. i cant tell if i play it well or not.. i'm scared to play wl.. at this rate after 30games i will have but 15wins..

    I don't think there is anything you can do. I have a very fast connection but i am far away from the servers. I really doubt that divison rivals are on dedicated servers although i always have 5 green bars, ingame sonetimes it freezes and that loading circle appears. That's on wired connection. The other day i tested a 4g mobile connection. Even worse, speed lag.

    Div 1 player and was hitting elite in FUT17 and I found the rivals to be as sweaty as WL... miss the DKT.

    Game is pretty different from last year. Also dedicated servers could help or hurt you I suppose depending on distantance. Also it’s early so people are not going to be settled in their skill rating or divisions yet.

    This is exactly how I feel.

    It seems like I have no time/space/passing options in attack, but when I'm defending, I notice my opponent has time/space/attacking options. Makes me feel like I'm missing something.

    It’s pretty terrible for the randomness in game . Stuff like kickoff off glitch , terrible ball bounce , over powered headers / over head kicks , clunky movement of players , complete ai controlled defenders , shots are terrible . The game is based on random luck a lot of times

    I was D1 before as well and am currently in D4. I have noticed you cant really play with narrow formations anymore especially if the opposition is using high press. Slow passes and OP interceptions make it difficult. Try a wider formation if you arnt already

    I think every new game that comes out I'm slightly worse than the one before. I was pretty decent on Fifa 12 and it's been downhill ever since. Pro Evo 4 I was flipping untouchable. :joy:

    I do :D. Stopped playing until they patch it. I refuse to tackle the same player 7 times before the ball eventually rebounds to his player who slots it in an empty net

    Getting to division 1 has always been easy. This is probably the first year there is an actual difference between good players and just mediocre ones

    The points add up over time they don't reset till you reach 2000 and redeem WL entry
