What's going on with Rivals?

It's an absolute sweat fest... Everyone I face has at least three of Eusebio/Mbappe/Neymar/Ronaldo and they all belong in Elite Division. They skill more than people do in Volta, only do finesse shots, celebrate every goal, pause when they're in front hoping you leave etc...

What's wrong with these people?

    With all the TOTs stuff going on and WL I don’t think people are back in the division last they belong yet.

    I always leave Rivals on the last day but I gave up after getting 4 wins, it was just horrible.

    It's a mixture of players coming back to the game for TOTS and players deliberately staying in the lower division for better match-ups in WL.

    It's a broken game mechanic where top players do a move, then finesse. 99 times out of 100 the ball ends up in the top corner.

    Im being smoked today and that doesn’t happen usually. Don’t feel like all the top elite guys have moved back up. Dropped to Div 2 at the start of the new season and am struggling.

    Played about 15 games, lost 14 with absolutely no chance in hell. I'm talking about Division 2 here.
    There are some serious issues with matchmaking.

    How am I supposed to climb back up when I only face opponents who belong two divisions higher? I don't mind facing a better opponent than me and losing a game, but when it's 15 games in a row, it kinda takes the fun away, don't you think?

    That's also true! Last week I was winning some and losing some and got my 8 wins. This week has been horrible up until now.

    Never experienced it like this usually climb up no dramas. I would usually have most of wins by now (8).. won 1. Opponents are so much better than I’ve gone against before lol.

    Was decent enough for me today. Got my 8 wins and back up to Div2 which I feel is my level. Seems far less sweaty than Div3 TBH!

    Made Div1 right at end of last season so will more than likely try do the same.

    Went on for the first time this season and went 8 out of 8 straight into division 1. After reading on here yesterday that it was a nightmare.

    Aye. WL is on a different schedule, plus there's the TOTS cup and new season of icon swaps.

    Rivals is probably on the backburner for a lot of people right now.

    More AI defending rats are back for tots. Everyone just runs around with their CDM waiting for the AI to tackle for them. If EA nerf AI defending then all the little kids won't play the game anymore and won't spend their pocket money on FIFA points.

    Skill spammers and general idiots are back.

    Played some clown who from kick off passed backwards and did about 10 fake passes with no one around them before chaining ball rolls in their own half.

    Strange behaviour.
