    I didnt play 21 or 20. But back in 18/19 I reached Gold 1 I believe usually - only got elite once.

    See that’s night and day ahead of my skill level. Hence why I don’t find this mode very good!

    Only manged to qualify once I'm currently 2-2 both loses in 90+ minutes.i know I will finish 4-5 as usual🥲

    If you can't even imagine the qualification if most likely won't happen. Sounds like a mentality barrier. Do you tilt when "unfair" stuff happens to you? Should work on that and you'll see more success

    Cheers for the advice mate 👍 I think that's my problem

    Game 6

    Nif gold squad,real cautious defender,,took some time to finally open him up(kante),,then it was a 3-0 RQ

    Game 7

    Nif gold squad with that onyeka,,,put 3 past me inside 20,,some absolute pathetic goals conceded
    In 2nd half he showed his true colors,,was a real good player,who defended well n cld chain skills too,but avoided them
    Beaten 4-0(I hit the post twice),,but huge respect for playing decently

    1 needed in 2,,,mbappe loan is on bench just in case,,gonna finish tomorrow

    Loan mbappe ftw haha. Back in the days there was attribute boost cards. You just reminded me that I used to give my whole team +10 in all stats for the Weekend League FINAL qualification game(Originally you had to win 4 games in a row to qualify - way harder than todays qual i find)

    Yeah,,I remember those 😆

    Maybe my play style just doesn’t suit this mode. Might have to try a more calm approach next season.

    Started my qualifiers and won the first game 5:2 in extra time after a 2:2 in regular.
    Looks like the delay is back, my players were so slow and heavy it's ridiculous. Ball feels like it's from metal and all shoots go strait to the keeper like he has magnets in his gloves.
    I needed 18 shots to score 2 goals vs my opponent who literally scored from his only 2 shots in the game.

    Extra time could have been similar but I scored a lucky rebound goal and he had to open up.

    I have one Match left.. depending on result it could be my very last Match for time now
    Can’t stand this Game anymore
    I was 4-1
    Now I am 4-4
    Most BS loses ever..
    Last Match I played I was two time better then opp.. literally had 17 shots vs his 4!!! Lost the Match after penalties.. in regular 90 mins was 3:3 result .. he scored finesse shot from left Corner from 30meters
    But that wasnt enough equalizing goal was in 88min after counter attack when my IF David in one vs one shot missed ENTIRE GOAL
    He countered, I fouled him.. ederson saved free kick but ball went to the crossbar and from the crossbar literally droped to his player in front of the goal .. and then somebody tell me this is coincidence

    Also gameplay is soooo slow and heavy

    For the average Joe type players (Silver 1/2 types), what formations and tactics work for you? Think I need a calmer more balanced approach next season for qualifying.

    @abhreebhu_45 you are my Lucky charm !! Every time I win after your words..

    9th Game was very stressfull .. matchamking is definitely not working properly.. after 3 loses in a row .. got matched against player with kante, keane, Drogba etc… also he vas very good, high pressure player.. he scored first with Drogba.. then I honestly got Lucky to get a penalty and scored in the Middle of the net.. then after one counter i scored an easy goal with vini and had a lead at HT 2:1.. beginning of the half i was strugling to keap the lead.. but then emerged messi and scored a fantastic solo goal for 3:1.. he quit the Match after that.. i was so happy because it was something around 70 min and not sure that i would hold off the lead..
    Again in finals.. hopefully will get a better result this week :)

    Game 2, easy win. Early red for one of his defenders, he forfeited after my third goal somewhere mid first half.

    Gameplay felt much better then that fist game.

    Last week was using 4222
    On sunday I think I packed IF Messi and went back to 41212 (2) - Best results this fifa had with this formation .. liking 2 ST formations the most.. currently Messi is Cam and St are SIF Vini Jr & FB Karim

    Also sometimes in Game i am playing 352 & 4231 depending on the result.. but 80% time 41212

    Never played it on 21 or any of the other games, bar a month on 17 I grinded for a kit.

    WL has always been a laggy mess for me so I've avoided it.

    But now, I get rewarded for not playing WL, so I smash the qualifiers and then take 20Ls for 2 reds and packs.

    Game 4, another gifted win. At least I think so because he actually played for a bit with his bronze team, tried to attack and tackle for the ball until I scored. Got me confused for a moment, I expected him to ether score own goal or throw the ball out and quit.
