On PS4 at least seems to be weighted towards the WL regulars. This was the theory one of my mates had last season.
Last season I qualified fairly early on and got gold 1/2 most weeks and therefore auto-qualified. I never bothered after that with DKT for the sake of a kit or a gold pack,, but as the weeks went on my mate who struggled to qualify started to complain that he always got matched up against teams full of IF's and specials etc.
When they brought out the TOTS reward players for winning a DKT I played them again for that,, and with my two squads that were full TOTS and IFs I noticed that I almost always got drawn against standard gold teams. It never really felt fair but well at least I always got the TOTS reward players I was after,,, but made me think my mate might have had a point.
This year I am on the other side of the fence having only got the game a couple of weeks ago. My team is all gold standards,, no IF's no ICONS, no specials,, rated about 84,, and now all I seem to get drawn against is these fully beefed up teams.
I pretty much know if I get to the Semi or the Final it will be against a team full of ICONS or whatever. Happened again and again last night
