To start, we’ve removed the timed refreshes in Squad Battles for FUT 20. You will now be able to refresh 4 new squads whenever you want, until you hit your maximum of 10 refreshes for the weekly competition (up 40 games per week). While those first 10 refreshes are the only squads which will count towards your weekly competition standings, you will be able to continue to refresh and get new opponent squads to work on completing objectives or just for some fresh opponents to play.

We’ve also included the Team of the Week as a recurring Squad Battles opponent. Which, along with the Featured Squad Battle, you’ll now be able to replay if desired to try and improve your final score. You’ll need to balance risk and reward when you re-match and replace your previous score in an attempt to earn more points, push yourself higher up the leaderboards, and gain better rewards.

    One week of squad battles for me. Best thing to waste your access on imo.

    It's not fun, but the main way to get rewards during access.

    I tried professional and legendary. Honestly there is no difference. My results didn't even change.

    Just playing World clas so i dont waste access for a stupid loss etc.

    Will go straight to legendary once games fully out.

    Best to spend all your access on this really, as Rivals you'll have Tues & Wed to get points.

    So, I know they explain it but I just want clarification;

    You can play as many games as you want an refresh as much as you want to but it's only the first 40 games that count towards the leaderboard, right? So if you play more what do they go towards? Do they add to your points total or is that classed as the leaderboard?

    Just not sure on it because they say you can keep playing for coins after your first 40..

    :confused:

    Yeah. Never seen so many crosses. Not even good ones either, sometimes they cross to the edge of the box for no reason.

    But then you also get very weird CB and keeper animations. The keeper just punches every cross and last game my Kimpembe scorpion kick cleared the ball. These random crosses can get pretty dangerous with all the bs animations.

    conceeded 2 crosses in my 2 games ive played tbf. one where my cb jumped to early & missed it & the other nobody was picking him up.

    only 2 goals ive conceeded but i had cahill as one of my cbs, so cant complain about that.

    Finished about halfway through Elite 3 before my access ran out, got 15 minutes left on it to go collect my rewards on Sunday night (no web app access). Guessing I'll be Gold 1 by then, hopefully not lower.

    You can only grind the objectives like 300 SB wins

    Basically you have your standard 4 teams. If they’re all too high rated for you. You can refresh it and 4 new teams will appear. You can refresh up to 10 times per week. So you could play all 40 in one day if you wanted to

    Last year you got 4 games a day plus a community team. You had to refresh each day before the time ran out or you’d miss your opportunity to play those 4 games.

    Now, you can refresh at anytime, play all the games at anytime & you don’t lose your opportunity to play them anymore. You can play all your games on Monday, or all your games on Saturday, or even split it up into chunks, etc etc

    Finding the AI horrible to play against on World Class, they just sit behind the ball and don't move

    Is legendary more offensive minded?

    Unfortunately I agree, like the idea of SB as a game mode but it's just a grind

    Was playing world class to guarantee wins so I'd have elite rewards ready for release but it's painful

    So been trying a few things with skillers vs the cpu to see what moves beat the man.

    Berbatov spin
    Step over touch to left/right
    Ronaldo chop

    These three skills have most succession rate.

    Playing possession football is the best way to get behind the defence. Strikers with good hold up play & passing will benefit from this.
    Play your width quite wide. Fullbacks tuck in this year like pep’s tactics.

    Currently elite one and have played 12 games total, have today's and tomorrow's should get 8 done to confirm elite 1... 30k coins and two big boy packs there was no other way to spend the few hours we got.

    Rivals will get handled on release, as well as squad battles then il probably never touch it again

    Nope, painful to play the teams with high rated players, sit back ping the ball out wide cross and repeat, it's easy against the lower rated but painful to break the good teams down if you do

    AI can't defend 2 things. The wings and drag backs. You basically send a winger on a run and then drag back back and forth waiting for an opening to cut inside and then finesse or sweat.

    I can repeatedly get to the byline & into the 18 yard box in a great position with a full back on overload, but the next part I mostly stuff up. Still scoring cut backs, but far less than what I really should be doing. Frustrating...

    Struggling on Legendary so playing all my games on World class for now which is less frustrating. AI seems to stick to my players like glue.

    The passing is an issue.

    It passes to the wrong person so much, it's insane. Then you watch back the instant replay and you aimed it perfectly, it selected the right player...and then it randomly switches despite you not changing the pass direction.
