Managed to hit Elite for the first time this WL

Might not be an achievement to some. But I consider myself an above average player who has been struggling to improve and the last few weeks I wasn't even able to get Gold 1.

Almost pushed to Elite 2 but lost on pens in a games I should've won and only got smashed 1 time.

Switched from a god squad to 2 squads in rotation, changed formation/play style and got Elite for the first time!

It was literally my only aim this Fifa so pretty happy :)

    Nice one mate! I've been a Gold 1 standard player pretty much since champs was introduced on FIFA, always had the aim of hitting Elite and managed to hit Elite 3 back when it was 40 games per weekend and was pretty happy, was content just hitting it the one time but on this FIFA I've managed to hit it 3-4 times, although I'm still Gold 1 most weeks still always nice to hit elite!

    Fair play on hitting it though and hopefully now you've hit it once then you can hit it a few more times :) I think the playing 2 squads in rotations helps though, I do the same and it just helps mix things up a bit and keeps it interesting using different players!

    Nice buddy, I’ve been E2 and E1 all year last two weekends since the new patch I can’t even hit G2, can’t work out what is going on or what has changed but your doing something right. Well done!

    This can't be right surely? I'm usually e3 but even in the worst conditions with lag and delay I can always cruise to 20 easily. To get less than 17 wins for an elite 1 player is pretty unheard of.

    Well done buddy.
    Same here. Been G1 every week managed 24 wins this week and matched a pro in my last game who’s finished top 20 for the month twice :joy: The elite 2 dream was short lived

    Switched to 4-4-2 default tactics and had stay back on both fullbacks. Switched to 2 squads and rotated instead of 1.

    The game changer was just left stick dribbling. I know all the OP mechanics, skill moves and so on but I never learnt simple left stick dribbling.

    I was learning it the last week on rivals and draft. Just using left stick dribbling to create space was winning me most of the games.

    What's left stick dribbling? Isn't that just normal dribbling, seeing as you always use the left stick to dribble/move?
