From Div 1 to Div 8

1625 posts Play-Off Hero

So I was wondering if some of you had had some weird surprises after the 5 placement games.

I was a Div 1 player in fifa 19. Not like at the very end, but was between Div 3 and Div 2 before they changed the rating of each division which put me in Div 1, as Div 3 - to Div 1 were now all Div 1.

At this point, I stopped playing. I think it was in March or April they did that, so I was a Div 2 player at that date, newly promoted in Div 1 after the change they applied.

I got Fifa 20 this week, did my 5 placement matchs (with a crappy team, but still) drew 3 and lost 2.

Got put in .... Div 8. Lol.

Last year was my second FUT year and after the 5 matches I was put in Div 6. Climbed my way from Div 6 to Div 2 (then Div 1 after the change) and now it puts me in Div 8.

    It’s based on those five matches though so comparing it to last year is pointless unless you also drew 3 and lost 2 in those placements matches. If you don’t win a game in placement, I’d say D8 is fair. You’ll work your way up as you improve your team if you were D3/2 last year.

    I think 6 was the highest last year even if you lost them all? But yeah if they you didn’t win a game maybe 8 is the highest this year.

    You will survive in division 7 and 8. The more you promote the more you feel to spend Fifa points.

    My quals were W2 D1 L2, got placed in Div 6.

    Not played many games so still in it. but going from a 0-5 defeat to a 5-0 win the next tells me it's meaningless what division you're in. One sided lag can make you feel like you're playing a div 1 player or div 10, depending if it's for you or not.

    Thanks for your answers guys. See that I'm not alone.
    I really struggle compared to Fifa 19 right now. My players seem like they don't really make runs forward it's crazy (of course I had that at times in Fifa 19 too, you know those periods where you can't get anything going).

    Seems like my beloved 4312 is kind of useless now. In 19 I was playing for month in 41212 (narrow) before finding the small variation 4312 even better, and this is what I went to D2 with, before being automatically pupt in Div 1 after the change.

    Will change for 4222 to see how it goes, used to like in the previous fifa. I just can't stand playing 4231 like 90% of the teams, and I love my 2 strikers.

    Feels weird and tough at the beginning. Also, I guess Div 7-8 now are like Div 4-5 at the middle of Fifa 19 since all players that play from start are (probably) the better ones, and you must have some in the low divisions.

    Not a fair comparison at week 1 as many div1-2 players Calibre are at div5-4.

    D1 last year was 2400. After the change doesn’t count. If you were 1900 to 2k then you’re actually d3

    I was d1 at 2500 and went into d4. Now d2.
