I am on the cusp of qualifying for the Rank 51-100, since I am playing FUT seriously this year, I don't know how to get into the Rank 51-100

Since I have played the last two games in PRO mode, because it looks like that I would get seriously spanked by the AI if I put it up to World Class. Believe me, I have put it up to Legendary mode on more than a few occasion (that is why I am so high). Every time I play on pro its either 899+ or 950+ points but it doesn't go further than that

Do I really have to put it either WC or Legendary mode just to rank this time round?

    Check the top 100 in the SB menu to see how much points you need.
    I'm not sure but I think you need to play all 45 games of the week on legendary and/or ultimate to even have a shot at a top 100 finish.
    I know the progression bar in elite 1 makes you think you're almost there... it fooled me too. Made me think I was becoming a good player :-)

    with any games on Proffesional, you will not reach 50-100. Not even close.

    You need legendary pretty much every game to get too 100

    Oh well, I tried but failed to win on Legendary against the last team, but lets hope that I stay on Elite

    I will try play more games on Legendary. Some of the games threw me completely. Though I did manage to beat a squad 7-1 on legendary, which had a nice taste to it

    You usually need to average 2550 points for 44 games plus 1900 from the one off game on legendary to even get into the top 100

    Wasn't every game, plus previous weeks, I had my router reset in the middle of game, EA servers being on meltdown a few times, and generally sometimes general bad tactics with the odd controls flipping to one button command inbetween

    After completing the SB for the week 44086

    I'm a little bit scared that I will drop a level before the deadline has come

    Yes, you can get more points, but you will need a shutout and a minimum 3 goals or up to 5... you get no more points past 5 goals, so scoring 10 is not going to help you.

    You most likely will get Elite 2. You can follow on FUTbin. Last week the mark for Elite 1 was over 49000 points.

    If you are at 44000 right now and the cutoff for Elite 1 is 43000 right now and 5 hours to go, it could be tight for you though. Bright side you are guaranteed Elite 2.

    Hope it is less, I would like to go out making Elite 1 at least once before quitting the game in a week or two. Missed it by 10 points one week.

    Yup, I've dropped a level

    Any clues as to how to get better at SBs? This time around, I almost made it. Shame I didn't

    Play a level that you can max out points, be efficient. Time of Possession, max out goals at 5, keep a clean sheet, passing above 85%, high number of shots on goal, and win lots of corners.... then work your way up the levels, but honestly there are times it seems like a pro level game is playing like a few levels higher.

    Sitting at 47699 and had some really regrettable losses, so playing the right level is key along with scoring even if you lose.

    Ye.
    I had to go to ET on pro, they was just insane. Managed to win 5-3 in the end.

    Next game i crushed it on legendary.

    Makes absolutely no sense

    Actually this week might be better to have the three packs vice two rare mega packs of TOTY is available in all three as a possible pick.

    If you pull a TOTY you should report back in...

    I finished elite 2 ( only played maybe 25 of the 45 games ) and packed an 86 cm from juve so listed him as coins will come in more handy to buy the players I want

    It’s the same every week if I am going to pack anyone it’s always the players pack, never anything in the mega packs.

    But like they say it’s all luck, just grind away and earn your high rated team like I try to do 😁

    Another week, second time I've reached E1, but it will be E2 at least by midnight. I hope. I won't tell you my points this time. Clearly lost a lot more matches on WC and a really stupid loss on Legendary......frustrating

    Gl. Will only be g1 or e3, depending on how many games I get tonight.

    Will probably not get any over 82 :D

    I scraped 1000 points less than last week. Either my tactics isn't right, or I'm putting players that are not quite right.

    Or I am really poor. I did have one disconnection from the unreliable server to be honest. So, it may have been 1000 points more on top of what I achieved

    I hope I get decent players this week, but last week packs were terrible beyond belief. Truly shocking
