    WL games do contribute towards rivals and you can earn rival rewards by playing WL.

    Getting div 1 rival rewards for only playing WL and not touching the game during the week, amazing.

    Gg EA. You did good. Baffles me why we had to wait until 1 day before EA Access to find this stuff out but that’s another topic.

    The only thing I’m not fully understanding is the rewards. So these player pick packs we get, will they be from the totw at the time? Or what?

    That matchmaking system is truly baffling.

    If I understand it correctly they basically match you exclusively based on your streak. So you could be 20-0, lose once and suddenly you are on 0 form and can match someone who also just lost and is on 0 form, but might be 10-15.

    The elite 1 rewards in that picture from the stream means 5 individual player picks cos then it falls in line with the 20 reds you’d usually get for e1 monthly.

    Guess overall we will get less red cards but getting the choice is much better

    No, it's like goal difference. If you're 20-0 and you lose a game your form will be +19

    Matchmaking has not changed. they just "clarified". We all know how stupid MM was in 18.

    happy they've done something finally. I know it's not the perfect fix for everyone but atleast it's a change.

    The example they gave for matchmaking was a little ambiguous. They should have had 2 examples, so you could definitely tell which way it was. The way @Mike explained it was the best way, but the way they gave the example could mean it works the other way too, but I doubt it.

    That is definitely not how matchmaking works.

    Dunno if you ever reached your goal for monthlies and then started giving away free wins. I did and on 18-15 EA gave me someone on 33-0.

    I'm not buying them matching people on form only or atleast form doesn't work like goal difference :D

    Obviously can't speak about this year so they may make it this 'form' matchmaking. Last year as others have pointed out it was certainly not that, I recall a time I was around 27-6 and then being matched up with three top 100 guys in a row losing all three when they were all unbeaten.

    Waiting for fut champions champions at this point.

    Doubt they let qualification run on a 30 game WL, with people hitting 30s there would be too much luck involved, because they never explained how skill rating works and how you increase it.

    They didn't change matchmaking. I have no idea why so many people on twitter talk about pros not being able to dodge each other. It's the exact same system, they just tried to explain it :joy:

    in 18 I played the same people every weekend , matchmaking is awful & broken here in the NA . Changes to WL may bring the casuals back to the game mode . Let's see how it goes

    Still wondering how these super weird match-ups especially during your last 10 games happen then.

    How does 28-5 match 18-15 for example. Maybe they struggle for find someone with the exact same form during the later stages and their algorithm of increasing the search radius is screwed or so.

    Maybe connection is prioritised
