Rivals Placement

So, I know I am not a good player but I enjoy it so that's fine. I just played my first placement match in Rivals and yeah, as expected, I got beaten......1-9!

Does everyone on Rivals have a team of 90+ In Forms? And is everyone that crazy good?

It was 6-0 at half time so I was just happy I kept it to single figures and scored a goal!

    It’s pretty late in the year so a lot are going to have good teams.

    How are you faring in div 9?

    I just did my placement matches last week because I really wanted Sabitzer. I'm done with it now. (Joao Pedro looks nice but I don't care much for Serie A)

    I ended up in Division 8. I think i'm 40%/60% W-L.

    I've had no issues at all playing but I did see a pattern where I would get a god team, and a normal team.

    Those would be winnable but I usually tied or lost due to screw ups of mine. Hard to adjust to the sluggishness after playing SB exclusively for a long time!

    Every week there are at least 2 objective players. Most of us get relegated doing these whether we mean to or not. My true division is 6 maybe 5. But I'm currently 8 almost 9 due to doing all these objective players. Its just hard to maintain wins when you have to score with players you don't want to use or from a cross etc.

    All my teams are 90 to 92 rated.

    Try playing slower that helps

    Bad!

    Somehow, i won my first match 3-1. He had a few bronze players but also had Pele but fortunately for me he couldn't score.

    5 straight defeats since then. Just played & lost 1-7 - my worst defeat since the placement matches. I don't think he was Division 9 standard.

    So not sure there is any point playing Rivals if my opponents are so much better than me.

    My skill rating was originally 217 - now 114. Division 10 beckons.

    Yeah, getting those 8 wins for Sabitzer was a real pain. I tried playing some more but can't get my players to react in any meaningful way. I manage to score one or two goals, but mostly get 3 or 4 in return.

    Still have not dropped to Div 9, but pretty close to.

    It is definitely not worth the stress :pensive:

    I was hoping to be in a place where I could play someone at my skill level - where I might win or I might lose but at least feel there is a possibility of it going either way (based on team ratings or playing well or poorly on the day).

    50% of my 6 games have been cases where my chances of winning was approximately zero such was the difference in ability. I don't think that should be happening in Division 9!
