Should FUT Champions be open all week?

It just feels weird that it's only open during the weekends. 30 games is a lot for three days. It's potentially 10 hours of gameplay.

I know it's the 'competitive' game mode on FUT, but I don't see why this means that it should be limited to less than half of the week.

I'll admit that I'm saying this from a selfish point of view, but I don't see how it wouldn't benefit everyone. I simply can't make the time to play 30 games in a weekend, and I know many others struggle to.

Playing during the week often feels like a grind, rivals is simply mundane. I know if FUT Champions was available throughout the week, I'd have a much more enjoyable experience, and I bet I'd probably have played twice as many games this year.

    I wouldn't be unhappy with a compromise like that, the extra day would definitely be very welcome. Still, I don't see a reason why it shouldn't be open all week.

    They won't do it because they want only small amount of players playing WL and then rather buy fifa points to open packs.

    I think Friday to Monday is great, then you have really enough time to play 30 games, and you still have that "competitive" league in fifa.

    Agreed with should be all week. As if it people are less competitive on a Tuesday than a Friday? Just locks people out who do things on weekends

    Forget all that, they should just remove Fut Champs completely, replace it with rivals and increase the rewards to how they were in fut champs. Open all week, let people play at there own leisure.

    Sounds a good idea to me. Have rivals be a 24/7 WL and then maybe bring back daily knockout tournaments with some incentives

    Yeah exactly mate, was thinking of a more casual tournament mode with the champions league licence.

    I think Rivals with rewards (reds and stuff) open all week, then some weekend only tournament that's actually a "champions league" style where it's knockout. It could be like 12 matches, single elimination, because then the finals would actually be two top players against each other instead of pro's trying to cherry pick weak opponents. Could give a good reward for that

    All week would be my preference as I spend time with my family at the weekend and that puts me off WL in general.

    Wed-Sun, give EA Mon-Tue to process the rewards and weed out the cheats. Everyone’s happy

    Always wondered why WL rewards take so long. Surely more people play rivals and those rewards don't have the same delay.

    No idea, I suspect the level of cheating in WL far exceeds rivals because of the limited games. Then there’s also the WL link to the pro scene which means financial implications/risk to people and businesses

    Yeah,I'd like that too.. those 30 games cramped into 2 days for those of us that work late fridays really is an unenjoyable grind and experience.

    Said it a log time ago, with DR being in I don't see the need for WL. I really don't. They should merge those 2 competitions and add back a "fun" or "casual" mode like tournaments.

    Seems like the general opinion.

    At the moment, I either don't bother playing during the week or I'll do the bare minimum to achieve gold rank 3. Unfortunately, that means the only time I'll play is during the weekend, and I only ever seem to be able to play around 20 matches.

    I can 100% say that if FUT Champions was on throughout the week, I'd play a hell of a lot more. Even if they did put it up to 40 matches, it feels like you're working towards a goal, it feels like you're playing for a reason. Rivals just feels like a never ending grind with little incentive.

    I think it should replace div rivals, so you're playing people on your level and the better rewards are in the higher divisions

    Extend it a day, we already have rivals for midweek. Maybe add a monthly reward to rivals similar to red picks as that’s the main advantage wl has over rivals at the mo.

    Don’t see the point with replacing rivals with a week long fut champs. Will just give us less choice. Don’t replace content, give me extra content!
