Division Rivals

Division Rivals is a new online mode with a skill-driven rank system in FIFA 19 Ultimate Team as a replacement for the previous Daily Knockouts, allowing users to earn FUT Champions Points and enter the FUT Champions Weekend League.

To qualify to FUT Champions Weekend League, you need to play Division Rivals matches and earn minimum 2,000 FUT Champions Points. In other words, FUT Division Rivals is the qualification round for the Weekend League. By playing Division Rivals you will earn weekly rewards which is calculated based on your Division Rivals rank and division tier you finished with.

Divisons & Rankings


There are 10 divisions (DIV) in Division Rivals mode, each division has 5 ranks. The higher rank you gain, the better reward you get. To climb up the ranking list in your division and promote to higher divisions, you will need to collect Skill Rating. To earn Skill Rating you will need to win or draw matches, a loss will deduct points from your Skill Rating which may cause you to go down the ranking list and even demote to lower divisions.

Placement Matches


To be ranked and placed in a division, you will need to play 5 replacement matches for the very first time you play Division Rivals. Once you’ve completed your replacement matches, it cannot be played again. Then, you will be assigned a Skill Rating based on your performance in those matches, which determines your Division.

Skill Rating


Your Division is determined by your Skill Rating. Skill Rating is a way to rate your skills in Division Rivals. The result of each match you play in your Division during the week impacts your Skill Rating. If you win, your Skill Rating is going to go up, but if you lose, it’s going to go down. By building up a high Skill Rating, you will be able to move to a higher Division. Your opponent is also a key part of the equation: if you beat someone with a higher skill Rating than yourself, you will earn a larger Skill Rating increase than if you beat someone with a lower Skill Rating. Similarly, when you are on the losing end of a match, your Skill Rating decreases more when it’s a lower-rated player rather than a higher-rated player.

This Skill Rating is coming from the "Elo rating system", a method for calculating the relative skill levels of players in zero-sum games such as chess. It involves a K-value (K-factor - K=800/(N{e}+m), which equates to the maximum amount that your Skill Rating can increase per game. This K-Factor is different for each Division. Below is the list of K-factor values that Skill Rating calculation is based on:

Division K-Factor
130
250
360
460
560
660
760
860
950

Matchmaking

This means that if you are on the cusp of promotion or relegation in Rivals, you could potentially play against an opponent in a higher or lower Division than your current Division.
