    What about the new draw system!?

    Hi, I just want to share my (bad) experience with the new draw system and want to know if you guys have similar draws or better luck. I’m at 113 level league and participating on the champions league. My team is 110% with effort(never spent a single coin in the game) and is sharing the league and champions league with 130-150% teams so it’s very frustrating and will be a long and boring month with few chances of promoting(and win +5 games honestly). The first day the message of the new draw system appear I clicked on the link to the survey to see what it was like but no completed it to wait until the league starts. Then got that awful draw and tried to complete the survey but the system didn’t let me complete it because it says I’ve already completed it(but certainly I didn’t). And also it’s remarkable that I am from Argentina and every other team in my league/champions league is from Asia so it makes no sense at all.

    Sooo, how about you guys? I want to know your experiences, especially teams at higher level. Hope this changes because it’s not fun to play with this kind of draw.

    It doesn't work, at all. I made a very detailed post in the other thread.

    well, my friend you are not alone in this and this is a great cause of frustration for many managers. If you listen to some of these know-it-all in here you should have no problem beating those much greater % teams. According to them, it's your fault. It's because you are not doing things right. Now I know that's hogwash. There is little or nothing you can do to compete against those teams. These guys in here who claim that you can beat those teams are not telling it the way it is. Some have sent me screenshots of all the stronger teams they beat but sadly they are misleading. Most of the stronger teams they beat are in the FA or other special events. I have beaten stronger teams in the FA tournaments and the special events as well. However, when it comes to leagues and other official competitions 98% of the time you will always lose against 20% and stronger teams than ours. If you get these draws you cannot compete period! It matters little what you do, before or during the game in terms of tactics and formation you will almost inevitably lose. The question is by how much? You can mitigate the damage but you cannot avoid it. I have played in total without counting FA 862 games so far, I can count on one hand how many times I have beaten a team that was 20% better, above that I can remember one, that's it. So as You see, I have played 862 games out of those I won 654 out of those 654 I probably won 5 against 15% and higher to 20% stronger teams. Most likely within the 62 draws is where I faired best against 15% and higher stronger teams. It's the law of averages and the averages against those quality teams is not to our advantage, it does not matter what these nay sayers say, that you can beat them, the reality is that you cannot.

    I know man. I’ve been playing since 2013 and the problem at higher levels is there are less teams to be paired with. BUT last 3 seasons my team compete against similar % teams. Top eleven devs presented now the new draw system like it was going to solve pairing problems but was exactly the opposite. I repeat. It is a game, and if you font make things right, people like me got bored. It’s like I don even want to watch my team games because I got really frustrated. I hope things got better for next season

    I’ve read it. It’s kind of the same feelings. Hope something change for the next season. It’s sad been so frustrated and caring so much for a team you have invested so much time for so long. But the leaving the game thoughts are real

    Unless they change the structure of the game nothing will change for the better for those like us. The ONLY way things can get better at this point is by structuring the league as the FA is structured, By the way, that would be so much more realistic. In the real world, teams get promoted and relegated. I am a firm believer that if they structured the leagues like that in a few months all the leagues would even off in quality and teams would all be much closer in quality %. I have written many times in this forum how I believe it should be. Basically, they need to do this, they need to break down teams by % groups first from highest to lowest. then create groups or league groups as it is in real football. They need to have as many groups to include all the teams as they do in FA, then the teams promote as they do in FA and also are relegated as they do in FA. Basically if the teams in each group are at most 10 to 15 % differential. Ina given season without spending much or even nothing you can get your team to grow in % by 10 % to 20% each group also must have a % cap so that a person cannot increase their team quality above 10 to 15% differential with the weakest team. the first 4 teams are promoted and the last four are relegated while the rest remain in that group.By doing this all leagues will even out in % and every league will become much more competitive. This is just a rough draft, there is a lot of leeway as to how you can set it up. The important thing is that it be structured as FA competition. In addition, the rewards should be similar also to the FA. In addition, as the FA is structured, you get to the ultimate level, which should be the level that one only where you qualify for CL and Super Cup while the cup competition should be opened to every group every season. All league games won should earn at least 3 tokens, not the one they give now and not always, one token is nothing. Three is the minimum. In CL and SC each level one passes should win tokens and the final 4 teams should all win tokens and other rewards as in FA, the first place obviously should win the most and then scale down to the 4 the place. If they did this this is a real incentive to make it into the ultimate league where you no longer promote but compete to win it and remain in it and to qualify to play in the CL and SC. People should have real incentives to improve their team and they ought to get rewarded properly for doing so. The way it is now there is no real incentive to improve the team and also not enough free resources and good rewards to do so.
