My team nowhere near this level and just a disgrace I get matched up with them. EA most like giving away wins to the same players every week.

Icon vs Icon should be a different league. I don't mind playing teams with higher rated teams, but these Icon teams are **** me off.

Most of the players have faced have 5 Icons in their team.

    No offence, but unless you started up FIFA 19 like ...yesterday.

    If you haven’t got a full special card team this far into the game then your in trouble mate. My teams stacked and I still hate facing full Toty prime icons etc Weekend league is going to be 10 times worst over next few weeks as everyone motivated to get free tots cards. I got a mil worth of tots players this week to add to my 9.5m team

    I don't buy points, my team is 88 playing the game, but when you facing 1million Icon players, it only a joke league then. I sure they think it great winning with ICON teams, but you only winning and beating inferior teams

    We are pretty much 9 months through a 12 month cycle of course people will have great teams in the most competitive mode in the game.

    You don't seem to understand how WL works.

    It matches you against other people who have the same "form" (basically wins minus losses) as you, or near to it. It doesn't look at squad rating or composition at all.

    Those icon squads you are playing against are people who are at the same or near the same form as you but have been playing the game all year. Doesn't matter if you are 15-1 or 5-15, those guys will be at around the same level as you.

    Icon players do not guarantee wins in this game. I promise you the gap between Prime Icon Desially and Varane isn't as large are you think it is.

    They bought there a way to get there, I not giving EA a penny. Sorry but most of the ICON teams are **** anyway, they just power goals in by pressure. I have yet to meet a decent player with icons, they just outmuscle and hassle my players off the ball- due to better stats.

    You do realise people can have great teams without spending money? My team is worth around 7m and I haven't spent a penny on FPs and stopped trading around Christmas time. Oh and I only have 3 icons btw 😂

    Sorry nobody gets Icons in their team and never spend money on packs. I just played a guy with Pele and Maradona in his team there no way you can't get those players from simply playing the game.

    You are just ranting now, it's fine to say you are annoyed at getting beat by them but your point that you shouldn't be matched against them and the conspiracy theory that EA is out to get you......go and have a lie down for a bit

    It wouldn't be much of a problem if this game wasn't all about pay 2 win. I love how ppl get carried by their teams to wins they don't deserve. :|

    I not ranting, I dominate in the middle most games, but their Icons just push over my attackers with ease. You can't play nice football in this game. Tuck, tussle and pressure constantly by Icons teams.

    You can tell they be crap if they have the players they did.

    You're wrong mate. I haven't spent a penny this year and this is what I have. Full chem before the dpad switch btw.

    You don’t need to spend any to have a full Icon team.

    In fact a lot of people have full TOTS team without spending any.

    So it’s your problem.

    Tbh I don't care if you believe me or not I'm just telling you how it is 😂

    And there's people on here with teams alot better than mine that haven't bought FPs. If you're smart and understand how the market works it's very easy to achieve this with all the rewards in the game.

    Online games are not supposed to be pay to win! You meant to get there by skill and winning games.

    If people have ICON teams they should really be facing off with similar teams.

    At this stage in the game Icons are quite cheap and there's been SBCs and a base Icon last month and this from FUT SWAP. Got a few in my team and they all had played in Serie A to match the team. never bought FP and never will

    Far from wrong how good would you be in competive mode if you had to the play with silvers or lesser gold teams?

    Winning with your Icon team is not competitive. If EA serious about competitive gaming, they need to introduce an element of surprise.

    Silver - 10 matches
    Gold 84- 10 matches
    Gold- Icon- 10 matches.

    This would be an interesting and fair competitive league.

    So if you were lucky enough to pack Pele and Maradona you would be happy having to play 70% of your matches without them?, this is called "Ultimate" team for a reason, go and play online seasons it's exactly what you are describing
