WL....harder than ever?

Anyone else notice this? I guess its because the only people left playing are the ones who are good at the game and all have prime icons everywhere. From my 14th win onwards every single game was vs a tough opponent who had a god team.

Its also taking me a at least 20-30seconds to actually find a game which I think is also indicative of how few people are still playing.

Less casuals = a higher level of competition I guess, even in those early games where normally you'd play a lot of average teams controlled by people who don't have a scooby.

    Yeah its tough, making me feel like WL isn't worth the grind anymore, pretty demoralising to be seeing prime R9 R10 Vieira Gullit Ferdinand etc almost every game. Especially when the guy controlling them is also a solid player.

    Yup. That's why I think having those SBC's for everyone to get good cards so easily is both good and bad... Gets annoying to see the same PL TOTS again and again...

    Thank god the world cup mode is close and should be refreshing :smile:

    Been business as per for me tbh and I'm not experiencing the long wait times like you mentioned, everyone has a different experience, however.

    Yes, it seems that less players are playing this WL. I played 12 games so far and faced same opponent twice. It also takes longer to find the opponent.
    I agree that it feels way harder compared to previous WLs. Actually teams with Bakayoko, Martial and Jesus bring more pain than icon/TOTS squads.

    EVERY week theres a thread that wl has got harder. EVERY week there are threads saying sb has got harder. can we just understand that there is varience whenever a game with as many moving parts as fifa is involved. the difficulties remain constant but luck changes.

    Im not talking about the actual game changing, I'm talking about the calibre of opponents that are still playing WL.

    It feels harder. The games for the most part are just more challenging. That said I’m still going to get the same number of wins I get, well every single other weekend.
