........but can you please do something to prevent the widespread self relegating (smurfing) that's going on!! Difficult enough to win with my rubbish Brazil team playing my own skill rating but a load of sweats who have clearly relegated themselves! Come on now EA!!! Your brand is becoming synonymous with cheating and smurfing!! How are no gaming journalists not all over this?? Must be on EAs payroll as well

    Not that it helps much now but keep an eye out for loan sbc's, they are normally extremely cheap and will help you with the "rubbish Brazil team". I used loan marquinhos, Victor and firminho for instance.

    As for the relegating.. At least the community is playing Golden goal so you hopefully find a more matched opponent quicker.

    Different modes require different game styles. In this mode you need to be able to come out of pressure situations. Move the ball around very quickly and continuously (sideways/backwards and forwards). Everyone is playing high press on this mode so if you are good at countering it then you’ll be in luck. Pass the ball through the channels and to your wingers.

    If you got slapped in division 1 when you are a division 6 player are you going to beat the Div 1 players 14/60 times?

    Exactly this!!!!

    A Div 6 player is never going to come up against a Div 1 player, only in WL maybe.

    Im about 1800 skill points atm and haven't come up against a single person who has quit or given me a win to self relegate. Just doesn't seem like it's a thing this year.

    If a div 1 player doesn’t want to play another Div 1/2 player in objectives what does he do?

    Same with people in all the other divisions, easier to relegate and play others who are worse than play people at their level.

    No offense intended, but given all the "randomness" and RNG complaints on this board, I would think that those mechanisms would cause you to win 1 of 4 games. Combine that with the defensive styles, etc. and pure luck would have you winning that many.

    Now, if you are unable to play around/through pressure, given the community's golden goal guideline, then consider this an opportunity to learn. It is not the regulators having their day in the sun, it is those that play a quick possession game instead of a drop back and PTB game.

    I think people are getting misled by ea’s terrible match making system. I’m in div 1 and I’m getting matched up with people that are obviously way below me. When I play in rivals I usually have quite an even record but in live friendlies I win around +80% and the games aren’t even close most of the time.

    I’d bet a lot if people that I match assume I’ve relegated too.

    Let’s say RNG kicks in and you score first in your 1/4 doesn’t mean the person will quit.

    Person may not want to quit or person may know they are way better than opponent so why are they quitting.

    People shouldn’t have to learn to play differently because of a “golden goal” lazy/entitled people want to enforce.

    You aren't playing div 1 players in div 6 30 times let alone 60

    That was an example, people are in divisions they shouldn’t be in.

    If you are stuck in any division you are there for a reason, if people then decide to drop divisions then you obviously have people playing people they shouldn’t.

    E.g div 4 since people want to use that div for rewards could be a mixture of anyone who is div 5 recently moved to 4. People stuck in Div 4 and then division 3,2 & 1.

    If you are gonna say but if they are facing people in their division level aswell then what happens if they score first but opponent they are playing doesn’t wanna do golden goal. They equalise quit or equalise and go on to win then div 4 player has to find another game which will likely be someone who is either equal or higher ranked.

    Let’s also take connection into this since a lot of people have complained about gameplay (including me)

    They would relegate to maybe Div3 at most which does cause a trickle down effect but a Div 1 player could go to Div 3 and win 14 of 15 games or at worst maybe 14 of 18 or 19. He doesn't need to be around Div 6 to get wins.

    Self relegation is a non-issue this year because while match making is skill based its extremely lose. I'm still hovering around mid Div 2 and I've played players I can tell are as low as Div 4 or 5 and players I can tell are high end Division 1 and could slap me 6 or 7-0.

    Guys I had very bad delay and lost many games to golden goal but when I play now and if I or my opponent quits it throws me out of ultimate team.

    I tried a SB match didn’t work and even shut the ps4 and restarted the game/system. Anyone else know what to do here?

    Seems like you've maybe quit too many matches. You probably need to play and complete a few games. This used to happen to people using single player seasons in UT for loyalty back in the day. I'd say try jumping into rivals and finishing a few games.
  • The problem now is that some guys think they can't win for some reason. My last two games opponents equalised with kickoff goals one of them kickup style and then they just quit. What purpose does that serve? Just being toxic and we both lose games out of our 60. Either just play the full match and better player wins or quit when you go 1:0 down don't equalise and then quit.

    I had 3 bronze rubberbanders last night alone. I thought it odd because that’s usually a Monday through Wednesday thing.

    A div 4 player can win a div 2-3 player in some games. Probably like 2 out of 5 or 2 out of 7 games. It’s just the match making and high pressure tactics which you should learn to handle first.
