EA, do you have any plans to stop relegation for next icon swaps?

In rivals, 4 out of 5 matches end up in a quit, either by me or by the opponent. That speaks volumes about the state of the game, at least in lower divisions.

In division 7/8 i'm constantly up against much higher division players, even now. You can tell by the way they play, even with below average teams, I even messaged a few and they were div 4/3 players. Is it gonna be a whole year of that?

Last year I had a poor team but I was at least matching up against players of my skill level and enjoyed competing and going up slowly. This year even with a much better team, I don't find myself enjoying the games coz of this.

    EA: Yes. Check out our Fifa 21 pre-release pitch notes.

    Isn't there now some kind of soft ban in place when you prematurely disconnect from too many games in a row? EA will never say it officially but it's there.

    Those who have already relegated will just stay where they are and not bother with getting promoted again.

    Last year they reduced the number of divisions around this time from 10 to 7. That might be on the cards?

    I'm sick of playing 4 out of 5 matches with relegators. This's gotta stop

    Everybody that loses a game now thinks its against people that have relegated themselves 😂

    Talk for yourself mate, maybe you think so coz you can't tell the difference? Or you're one yourself?

    I don't have a problem with losing. I know my skill level coz I mostly manage to stay in div 7 occasionally going to 6. But sometimes, i dip to even 8 playing 8-10 matches in a row with higher division players. I can tell when I'm playing against someone with much higher skills than me. Besides, I messaged a lot of people to see and they admitted to have relegated.
  • I’ve already came up against 3/5 games I played earlier that were on the way down using bronze teams in div4 on pc
  • I thought they started banning people for this?

    Don't worry, EA wants to have an environment where bullies don't have a place, or so I have heard. I am sure they will sort this out

    I've dropped down to division 8, I did the online icon swaps over a few days with ease, if I had to do that in division 3 it would have taken forever.

    I do feel bad and I know EA are not forcing me to do it but I ain't doing them in division 3.

    Looks like they’re nice and early to lower divisions ahead of swaps, while doing all other crappy card objectives. I’m not that great but I’ve lost 7 out of 8 matches in a row in division 7 and in 8 now, never happened before.

    F*** this game!

    Yep, division 7 was mental. I'm back at 6 now. I think what we're seeing is strange reverse effect, div 3 might be actually easier than 8?

    EA did have a plan, they introduced special rewards for div 4 and higher. That's your plan for Fifa 20.
