    In Fifa 15 I tried to track who I actually played against over a couple of seasons by looking at their profile in the FUT club menu afterwards. I was usually between 1st. and 3rd. division, but to my surprise the people I met in a single season could range anywhere from 1st. to 4th. So this adds even more to the randomness you describe. FUT matchup allegorithms must weigh things like geo location and so on over divisions. I am from Denmark and meet Danish people in a huge part of my matches (know them by their name or Danish fut kit choice)

      It’s a nice thought. Gave me an idea for an update to my article

    Also the issue with the fact that Ultimate team is scripted, and it ruins it. Much like rubber banding in racing games, the same effect is in place for ultimate team – if you have a 79 rated team against an 84 rated team, you’re practically guaranteed the win and the same vice versa. It ruins the game and makes it pointless having an amazing team – I have far more chance with my second team than my first.

    I would also like to see a more fair way of leveling up as well. I’m not so sure how lengthening the seasons would solve this because you are still at the mercy of the same system. The way that people are matched against higher and lower level players seems to negate a players skill level at fifa. If I play in D 6, and face players in D 4, D 3,mostly, I am predetermined to loose it would seem. Does it even out because you play people in D 7 as well. I get Divisions 10-7 playing each other to have a bigger playing field, but it should be more strict beyond this level. Then maybe D6 and D5, then D4, & D3, then D2 & D1 totally separate. I don’t know I just wish it were a more level, and fair playing field which would more accurately represent ones skill set with in the FIFA gaming world

      Rather than using divisional matchmaking, Fifa uses ELO matchmaking. This implies that you are matched with opponents at your own level +- but not necessarily from your current division. Divisional matchmaking would imply an even bigger variety in difficulty due to the fact that a player’s current division is decided by coincidence to a large extent.
