Having finally managed to win a dkt at last i am going in my first wl event.Trouble is my squad an efl, prem hybrid which struggles to hold div 2. Can i still be competitive with a relatively weaker squad. Sorry dont know how to do pics but squad is 4222 birthday rooney and bamford up top if vydra and if lingard cams, saiss and alli cdms, walker, sbc moore and if chester and sess in defence and pantillimon in goal. Sorry for the long post any advice appreciated have about 200000 coins to spend cheers

    You can do it if you survive dev 2 you can get wins..
    I play in dev 2 but not so often and get around 15-20wins
  • You'll be fine, if you're decent no matter the squad you'll get 15 wins min if u play all 40

    Expect lots of bs. If u can get your concentration levels up for 40 games you’ll do well. I can’t

    You’ll get 11 wins without issue.

    I would say if you play all 40 the worst you can possibly do is 17-23.

    Don't buy the whole "if you can't win the DKT, you won't last in WL" nonsense people tell you.
    I've found the DKT harder than the WL

    Its not hard per se. Its more frustrating lol. But I believe its a little easier than Div 1.
  • Don’t break your controller.
    It isn’t all that (I don’t bother trying bc of boredom)

    Only reason it's hard is because everything is 40/60 tipped towards the other player

    You will be cool. Just dont let the bs keep you down. If you go on a bad run take a break and jump back on later.

    How does that not make sense. I'm basically saying that it's not equal and that it's in your oponnents favor.

    I can't even begin to explain how that doesn't make sense.

    So every opponent you play is advantageous? Does that mean that on their side of the screen you're advantageous?

    Play in Breaks and you can easily get 14-18 wins(Its fully scripted by EA,they will control your wins)

    If you’re comfortable in Div2, you should get gold 3 in WL or at worst Silver 1.

    Agree, im div 2/3 player and gets 18-20 wins in WL, say 50% of my losses are due to concentration failure and my composure in the final 15mins in game, conceeding bs goals,

    Completely agree with this. I’ve just held Div 4 for the first time, never won a DKT, but usually get my 11 wins within 20-24 games. Got 21 wins last weekend from 34 games. Concentration is key, once you find yourself making silly mistakes, take a break and don’t try and play through a losing streak

    Similar standard to me. I even got gold 2 last month. You’ll get 11 wins no probs. Division 1 that I have been in once was way harder than WL. Not even comparable. (Maybe as I don’t play elite players based on my rank)

    I would love WL with the connection playable 24/h. I have it only at evenings. Its hard to play 40 games when you can do it only at nights or early morning :D I dont care about wins than i play during worst hours also and I love my god squad moving like a 40 overall bronze team. Its challenging :D

    Just don't give up if you have a tough start. The first 5 games are completely random, but after that it should start pairing you against people with similar records. Just aim for 11 so you don't get annoyed by losing games.

    I’ll go one better.

    Fantastic gameplay.

    Fantastic sportmanship from your opponents.

    Fantastic match making.

    Fantastic unique teams, won’t face same team twice.

    Fantastic concept, can’t fault it. If anything, 40 games in 3 days is not enough.
