    First WL this year and finished rank 3 with 47 points. Used to finish G2/3 last year so not sure how this compares - rewards seem similar to G2 with 2 out of 4 red picks but the TOTW pack is extra. Don’t think it was worth the effort as my best choice from red picks was 82 Gunter twice 😟

    Didn’t enjoy it at all. The gameplay particularly today was really laggy and the player switching wasn’t working at all , switching away a from players just as they were about to get the ball!

    16-2. Thats 4 rank 1's in a row 2 new 2 old gen. Based on record it's slightly easier on old gen ( I had to win 3 in row on new gen both times) I've gone 16-3/16-2 old gen though for me I still found it very difficult, every opponent after 5 wins was decent baring a couple. There was a few matches were around 80 mins I basically played keep ball to see out the win.

    Just the 1 free win again, this was the team CR7 is just insane the odd game he doesn't score but otherwise feels like he's scoring 2/3 every match. 442 obviously

    First loss at 13-0 was a narrow 3-4 where I hit the bar twice, to equalize late aswell, good player though and I did win a lot of narrow games to. Other loss was a god squad, I was on top early and had a pen saved but went behind after tackling him three times, I ended up having to chase and his team was just to good, whole front 4 5*5* Ginola, Neymar, Cruyff, RB Dembele etc.. Lost 1-4.

    8 wins don't take an effort tbh

    playing on ps5. Old gen seems easier..
  • What happens if I do 1500 qualify points but don't play any Playoff games (or even enter it)? Do I lose my points and 1 entry on the end of the weekend or keeps to the next one?

    Finished 74 points (18 wins) why you ask? 🤣 Just wanted to see one time how many wins out of 20 I can achieve. Pointless playing after 16 obviously.

    Reds were Smith Rowe, Mount, Simione

    Sterling in ultimate and obviously still saving the TOTW packs.

    Pretty meh but it's another bad TOTW just wanted to keep the rank 1 streak going for now

    Phenomenal,,,absolute Phenomenal scenes in my room right now,,,did thumpings in air,chest,head,,before doing that Dx stunt(forgive me if anyone takes it badly)

    So from 5-4 yesterday (was 5-2 at a moment),I went 5-7 n then 7-8,,,with all hope of Rank 2 lost,I said lets get on with it,,a loss is all needed to take Rank 3 n gift my remaining games

    So I played on for fun as I mentioned earlier(barring a dull game) ,,it went 8-8,9-8,10-8,11-8

    Now I was anxious as it was a final for me n those who know me from this forum can understand me choking in crucial games

    So for my last game,I called I reinforcements

    Loan mbappe in for benzema
    Loan puskas in for fekir,allowing fofana to start ahead of rabiot
    Loan Theo in for lazzari
    Loan pele(hero) on bench
    Di Maria comes in for ikone

    To be cont.

    Slightly I've gone 16-4 twice on new gen, had to scrape my last 3, where as I went 16-3 18-2 on old gen.

    TBH it's probably because of the drop back on new gen which helps people defend so games are close. Old gen is way less frustrating to score, obviously harder to defend aswell.

    Had 16 games to play today and started 2-2. Ended 8-5. 2 of the losses the guy scored straight from kick off and I just quit out as I didn’t have a lot of time. Gifted the rest with zero thank yous back.

    Rewards pretty dreadful…

    It was against a decent player who was definitely annoyed seeing those loanees,,,but the brave soul played(I know a lot who might quit),,but he wld keep mbappe silent by blind tackles n hard tackles,,I went in only for him to make a rash tackle inside box n puskas dispatching it coolly n then di maria did some excellent work in box to put through mbappe

    Into the 2nd half n I played like a rat,,kept the ball,looking for spaces n trying to carve him open,,2 changes were made,pele in for Pedro with puskas moving wide n inaki(came after 70th) for angel,,,he was real good,but so was my fofana(what a beast),,he did win a penalty saved by me(my gosh it was stressful) before scoring a quick counter to give me the blues,,,I kept the ball for final 10(hakimi the main carrier) n won an unlikely battle

    12-8

    😮

    Stopped at 8-2.

    This game is way too random. My ❤️❤️❤️❤️ they fixed goalkeepers. Every game I play the opponents keepers are gods compared to my keeper.

    Cba to play anymore this weekend, feels like '21 again

    My third WL this year.

    Went 8:5 and didn't want to sweat for the 12.

    Last 2 WL were 8:6 and 8:10, so definately improving, team isn't much different either

    12-5 and gifted three.

    Had two annoying defeats. Led by two goals in the 70th and lost once in extra time and another time in overtime, after taking the lead.

    Opponents played mostly boring. Very deep and only after through passes and cutbacks.

    But thanks to red Mane, I still had fun. :)

    Got gifted 0 free wins, but had 3 people quit at 0-0, amazing.

    Using a fullback at CB again, hasn't put a foot wrong yet.

    Which fullback? With Walker and Co. it works, but otherwise they can't keep up physically.

    Worst WL experience since FIFA 20. Tried all three days but just kept on getting the same awful gameplay and more obviously defunct ai. Just gave up in the end.

    Playing late on a Sunday is a dream, needed to win 3 from 5 to get rank 2 and duly got all 3 from people gifting wins 😄.

    Not sure how I feel about my first rank 2, but I'll take it!

    Brought back the 352 which I had abandoned weeks ago and it seemed to be working again, really enjoying it with some new custom tactics.

    Got Atal, Upamecano and some random from Red picks, very happy with Atal as had only just bought him so he slots straight it.

    Sold my big purchases (Son, Ljungberg and Onyeka) as they were tanking in price on Saturday and with WL being so friendly this year my cheaper to can do the same job. Will save my coins for a few big icons in the future.

    Debating whether I should open these reward packs or save 🤔.

    Good luck all.
