    The dream is still alive in the idiotic Cup

    Despite of the recent idiotic change in the Cup competition and putting teams with level difference of 2-3, this season my dream is still alive. I'm level 27.

    First round: I've played with a team "only" one level above mine. With some good tactics that one was out.

    Second round: Now is time to play with a team two levels above me. Knocked this one as well (this time with much help of my goalie).

    Now I'm in the third round. Finally I have an opponent who is my level. I think that will be a fair battle.

    Just look if I pass this round what team is waiting for me in the next. Three levels above mine.

    Top Eleven, please fix that STUPID way of Cup draw. That is not fair to all the loyal players.

    I also have to face to teams three levels above me in cup this season.

    Top eleven, you limit the number of packs we can get by watching videos, you increasing injures, you eliminate free agents, you keep creating troll results, what are you trying to do?

    I don't see there is any change in Cup draw. It is usual that opponents can be teams which are in highers levels. Have I overlooked something?

    In this season, my level 27 is really lucky that it only faces similar quality, same level teams in the first 3 rounds. My level 19 Team faces teams which are 1, 3 and 2 levels above it in the first 3 rounds, but it is lucky that only the third round opponent is with much higher quality. In my opinion, if cup opponent is in higher level but with similar quality to my teams, they are actually less well managed and is usually weaker in real strength.

    I like some challenges to play higher level teams in cup, but I also think limiting difference in levels in cup matches up to 2 or 3 levels is more reasonable.

    I accept the challenge led from the current Cup draw system, even if sometimes my teams play with 3 or 4 level higher team.

    But it is clear that it is a unfair competition between cups in different levels because low level teams has restricted by rule from buying high quality players even if they have cash and tokens.

    And there are so many complains about this. So I will be happy if cup in future will includes teams in same level or within 2 levels. Even if there is such change, cup is still not a easy competition. There is only 1 winners for 128 teams. There will also be higher chance to draw with stronger team in same level.

    The thing about the Cup draw is it has to start at the top of the server.. and pull top 128, and then next.. etc.. so.
    You always get teams above you if you have high Q squad, and would still even if it was restricted, and there would have to be exceptions like now (in CL and League) to make the draw even, especially at higher levels where there just are not that many teams.


    I myself gave up on winning Cup a long time ago now...

    For everyone that plays against a team two/three levels above them, there's a player who is playing a team two/three levels below them!
    Are they on here complaining?
    No. Because they are quite happy with the situation.

    This is like FA cup. If that's their aim then it's pretty accurate.

    I can't see that there's been any change in the Cup draw - Palace Casuals are in their 27th season and, apart from the first season, have always played against higher level teams. It's only in the past couple/three seasons that I haven't been to quick, or keen, to upgrade the side that the occasional lower level team has been encountered.

    The thing about the Cup is that if you tailor your team for the League and Champions League, then you're going to meet 'super' teams in the Cup. It may well be that your team has it in them to rise to the challenge - the occasional time that the Casuals have had a good run in the Cup, they have had the tactical beating of higher level teams.
    Any formation or tactics advice given is based purely on experience with my teams...

    Cup is for lower Q. teams of better level than u.

    That simple, really have no sense this system.... coz many times a +3 level team inactive that have 7-8* appears in my cup, then in League is 5..6..7th and when he see that can win cup coz have a easy group, then use his market level to have advantadge.

    So the cup, is the less interesting torunament and what have less value by my viewpoint of interest, because do not have sense.
