Squad battles only?

Maybe I’m just bad at the game this year but I can’t seem to get anywhere with rivals this year. Is it a waste to just play squad battles and be done with it?!

Currently rocking a Serie A side with all the usuals except cr7 but just get smashed online.

    I play 80-90% sb. I play enough rivals games to get to gold 3 and get some packs.

    Yeah makes sense, think I’ll be doing the same from now on. Played 7 rivals games last night, lost 5, won 1 and drew 1! 😂😂😂

    its better playing DR and learn and improve
    rather then BORING sb that wont improve your game just teach you how to beat the ai

    i find sb to be the most boring mode ther is

    Fair enough, I enjoy the game when it’s competitive, not necessarily winning all the time but at least nearly winning!

    I wanted to do that but I pulled some great players and was able to make a good team.

    SB rewards are terrible this year. Did gold 1 last 3 weeks and never got an walkout

    I have one sided slow gameplay but still winning some matches every match is tough.
    Make a few custom tactics my main one is 442 have one striker that can hold the ball up. The amount of times I have to turn back is unreal thats why I need Lewandowski,Kane etc to hold the ball.

    Tactics are .
    Balanced
    5
    4

    Balanced
    5
    5
    3
    3

    Full backs stay back
    One CM stay back both cover center.
    Everything else default.

    So you are using pack luck as an excuse?

    No pack luck. The problem is the reward. The bad packs that comes with the rewards.
    MM rewards are better than SB rewards

    SB is absolutely revolting this year. Drop back and defend and they seem to nerf all your stats especially against world class etc. It’s a complete borefest IMO and I played a fair bit of SB last year so I’m a bit bummed about it all

    Yup, it’s not very fun getting your ❤️❤️❤️❤️ kicked online every other match. I play a handful of rivals matches to get gold 3 for rewards. Most everything else is sb.

    I get kicked out of the servers so often though it’s really hard to play and complete matches too

    You can comfortably get to elite 1 in squad battles playing the rubbish, low chemistry teams on world class and the full chemistry ones on professional.

    There's the occasional random BS moment now and then and it is pretty boring but it's mostly a chilled out way of grinding coins and packs without the stress of the ultra-competitive online modes Rivals and Champs that is plagued with wind up merchants looking to abuse every flaw in the game.

    442. Spread it about. Be patient. One twos with strikers. Heel to heel flicks can leave defenders dead. Stop and turns in the box and smash in at near post. (This is all pre patch. Not had the chance to play post patch yet)
