You've played every Weekend League this year to Gold 3 or Gold 2 and your best red card is 84 rated. Then you come up against someone in Division 5 who theoretically is the same skill level and they have an 86 Cancelo, 89 Eriksen and a 90 Chiellini (all red cards) in their squad.

Either my luck is complete ****, theirs is ridiculously good... or they are an Elite WL player sandbagging down in Division 5 for rewards. After seeing them play I am guessing the latter.

Either way I think I might be skipping WL from now on... Thank god I am taking three weeks off the game soon for vacation. Will need to re-evaluate when I get back.

    You know man. This is a game. It’s for having fun. Should be no need to evaluate and take it very serious.

    That seems lost on most on here, they torture themselves playing a game they dont enjoy for red cards they arent going to use

    I did't get a single walkout red outside of TOTS for FIFA 17 or 18, Just remember at least this year WL gives you Rivals point so you earn double the rewards.

    I’ve had 2 red walkouts since champs began, obviously not including tots.

    Robben on 17 and Salah on 18.

    I’ve played to at least gold 3 every weekend apart from 2 when I was on holiday, and 1 a few weeks back when I forgot to qualify.

    The rewards are poor, gameplay is even worse. Feels like I’m kicking a bouncy ball around the field today with a mind of its own. Sod the game and enjoy your holiday

    Wow dude. I feel the exact same way and I've not pulled anything above 83 myself from Gold 2 or Gold 3. @D3ATHSQUAD

    Are we cursed?

    Dunno what it is but I enjoy the format of WL and trying to better myself. That’s why I play it, the rewards are just a bonus.

    I usually get a load of absolute toilet in my red player picks and also haven’t had anything above an 84 on 19 so far so I feel your pain but it’s all just luck. Play WL if you enjoy it and just don’t expect anything decent from the rewards. Otherwise you are always gonna be disappointed.

    Last weekend i plaid mu first and probably the last weekend league.
    So annoying play this, all BS happens.
    Everything I dislike on this game happens.
    People waste time, rebound goals, over time, PK without the assistant.

    Sometimes it make me sick

    I have 18 red cards from gold2-elite2 finishes. Got 85 Fahrmann-Valeri-Mata is highest but pretty much useless picks.
    I feel the same, run up against great reds all the time.
    Last year I finished elite 1 monthly die 3 months. That was 3x 20 tots never got anyone really good.
    Its like getting punched in the face.

    Auba. Thauvin. Suso. Dembele. Bakayoko. Nani.

    That’s all my 83+. Gotta admit. I could get poor for the year of the year and still have done well

    If reds are the reason you play there isn't much point going past 14 or 17 wins

    Just comes down to luck like all packs
  • I just aim for any silver 1 or 2 and stop. You can get the same luck and for me it's not worth slaving over.

    Once it stops being fun or have had too much of the extreme playstyles, I'll start playing rivals and work on that because the coin rewards for tier 1 or 2 are pretty good. Especially from Div. 6 and up

    Really if you finish elite 3 or higher your picks should be 83+ guaranteed

    And 81+ for gold 3 or higher

    Bruh, I dunno what division you're in, but to me rivals is more stressfull than WL.
