Yeah, going straight into FUT Rivals this year might be a bit suicidal. I played the qualification matches against under-80-rated teams because I played in the first few hours. But then I was placed in Division 3 and got my ass kicked everytime with those through balls. At one point I had like 6 wins and 13 losses (in FIFA 20 I had 280 wins in Online Seasons and 37 losses).
But after a few games I started to get the hanging of defense. I’m playing with Ruben Neves and João Moutinho (no pace at all!) in my midfield because of the objectives, with Alderweireld and Thiago Silva at the back (no pace again!). I’m constantly playing against Carrasco, João Felix and Vinicius Jr., and yet I’ve been able to defend quite well.
Try playing Squad Battles in FUT before heading into FUT Rivals. Also do some SBC in the Web/Phone App to grab some free packs without wasting the trial time.
I mean, I played for 115 hours since launch – so I had my money well worth it! But I’m not playing as much as before because my career mode save won’t transfer between generations, and seeing this heavily discounted while I sit here waiting for the next-gen version is a kick in the nuts.
And yes, the same about Immortals! I wanted to grab it at launch. But I also got Watch Dogs Legion at launch and it is already discounted. So screw it, I’m going to wait on Immortals.
I am curious how many people decided to just not buy them after the last few. Hmm. Maybe FIFA will just be starting to die a little which would be good because then they can finally rebuild it from the ground up properly instead of using FIFA 13 assets etc
