Just played my first WL. Wow. What an experience that was. Some of the most laughable garbage I’ve ever seen. Was 10:10 last night. Started this morning needing 1 game for silver 1, got it on my 2nd last game. Is this really worth the frustration and bullsh*t every weekend ? Haha I thought I’d seen it all with div rivals

    You don't need to play WL this year. Just focus on SB and DR. Stay away from the most toxic aspect of FUT.

    Rivals is **** easy for me, there isn't the pressure of reaching a target within a fixed number of games.

    Glad it’s not just me then! Surprised I actually ended up with 12 wins. I was warned to be honest, but I’m sick of not earning any decent rewards through DR so thought I’d give it a bash

    Score 5 within 5 mins, set ultra defense, put down your controller, easy points.

    I've just started did my first WL last weekend... it's horrible, same OP squads and formations and the same horrible steroid pressure tactics and ling ball counter on repeat 😫... wierdly addictive though 🤣

    Playing my first one since 17 this weekend and as long as I make it to 11 wins I’ll be happy (7-5 just now with 2 disconnect losses)

    More relaxing that Rivals for me so far and I get the added bonus of 400 rival points win or lose.

    After finishing the WL I’m pretty much guaranteed rank 3 in Rivals, what’s not to like? (Apart from the awful connections)

    The rivals points are the only reason I’m playing. Might as well get the rewards from WL and at the same time it pretty much guarantees you Rank 1 in DR too

    Apparently, people play this Piece of #€*&&@ like they life depended on it lool i'm currently just making experiments: current findings: playing full weekend leagues with a 100k team and a 800 k team gets you the exact same result lol EA is just conning US INTO thinking that players stats make any difference... They don't... It's all about how you exploit the Gameplay, nothing else... In fact, you can tell by the ammount of goals conceded from poor strikers vs good strikers: Kane, lewa, icardi, etc . All outshined by Jesus, martial, zaha, the likes...

    100 percent true this... I have a 4 mil team and a second team for fitness of the usual cheaper suspects... the cheap team play better than my top squad most the time... I think a better player would get better out of the top team though... I think it's about having the skill to use them better

    See it’s nights like tonight when I feel like chucking the control through the tele , button lag ridiculous . Connection horrible . Players not doing what you want them to do because of this . Only needing 3 wins to get gold 1 but getting battered by teams due to the terrible servers .

    It's a disease I'll be lucky to get 8 wins if I play 20 games and I'd stop at 11-14 regardless 2-5 currently 1 loss deserved another 50/50 which is fine. One just a black screen for 3/4 mins turn off restart and get a forefeit notice other 2 lag City right before their goals

    Completely agree. I use 3-5-2, team cost me around 200k and I beat someone with a team I estimate to be worth easily 5 mill 5-1 lol but yeh 98% of the time even my 200k team gets demolished by the bog standard Zaha etc

    Hahaha I feel you. I said this on another thread last night , Fred actually launched my Kimpembe about 10 yards off the ball !!! My Gabriel Jesus .... wearing 50kg lead boots, his Gabriel Jesus .... snorting coke before the game. Shambles

    Just had my first WL and actually ENJOYED it. Still got like 20 games left to play. Only went to silver 3 to get a player pick but I found it no different to rivals. Was glad to see I gained rivals points aswell so don't have to cram games in during the week now.

    Depends how serious you take it I guess

    I just won't play them. I'm happy with the rewards I've earned. I might play for another 2 wins if I get time after work tomorrow but I don't see the point in grinding out games just for coins. If I play I want it to be so I can enjoy it.

    But you can "exploit" better with better players. 5*/5* on Cryuff and R9 + Eusebio/CR7 up top, tanks like vieira and gullit in midfield, rio and maldini at the back stops everything.

    Yes every weekend as I grown man I put myself through this horrendous torture just so I can open packs up without spending money. Tbh I’d be with the pay to win life but my girlfriend would kill me

    What’s fun about that? This is a game, not your job you know.

    Although it's pretty much impossible to enjoy WL the best advice I can give is to set your targets low for example, I've finished Gold 1 2 out of 3 weekends I've played, Instead of saying lets aim for elite now I just say before I start I'll be happy with Gold 2 and anything higher.

    Im considering this actually. Maybe to gold 3 which will be in the first 15 games then not putting myself through high pressure try hard hell for the next 15 games. The extra red pick isnt worth it since I get no one anyway

    I am currently 1-14.

    Losing by one goal in last few mins regularly after going a couple up.

    Frustrating.

    I aim for silver 1 as that gives me 2000 points for next qualification. Anything more is a bonus and if i get in to gold then it's two player picks. Won't consider elite tbh, not that good to do so.

    This week ended on gold 2 and that's enough for me.

    Are you attacking when you go up or sitting back and trying to counter?
