A match difficulty level is set before going to a game from the GAME SETTINGS tab and it cannot be changed throughout a game.

In FUT 22, the difficulty level is calculated for the match coins awards.

  1. You’re just simply trash if you can’t play Legendary and win every game. I choose the worst team in the game and win the FA cup in first season with 50-60 rated players. You probably just run with the ball and get tackled without and semblance of strategy or tactics. You can’t magically be good at a game without dedicating ~1000 hours to getting good.

  2. Much too big a gap between difficulty levels. Within a day of starting to play I was winning games 8-0 on semi-pro so I upgraded to professional and am getting spanked every game. Can’t even compete.

    1. Dear Mike,

      The reason the gap seams that big for you, is your style of play. When adapting your difficulty, you must adapt your style ass well. On semi-pro you get away with walking around, speeding up with the ball. On professional for example you really need to learn how to defend and pass. Keep the ball in your sqaud.

  3. The problem is in legendary they don’t make any faults so no yellow cards and no free kicks thus limiting gameplay mechanics, the other problem is it’s not natural the way they attack and you know it so fix it other than that it’s ok

  4. Fifa 22′ – Level ‘Ultimate’ on ps5 playing multiplayer (2 player (not online)) seams very different from when I play on same level – 1 player on my ps4. How can this be?
    And autopress dos not work when we play multiplayer. Anyeone has an explanation or solution to this?

  5. May I ask why there’s a big difference between professional and world-class difficulty levels ?
    I’ve noticed that if I’m playing at the professional level, the game is so easy, while it is not if I’m playing at world-class level. There’s a really remarkable difference between them.
    For istante, at the professionals I can win every match at least 3-0, also against powerful teams such as Manchester City or Liverpool while using Arsenal. At the world-class level, I barely manage to cope with the game and at least I can struggle finish the match with a draw.

    Thanks in advance.

  6. Did semi pro with Middlesbrough didn’t lose any league games and won F A cup.. got promoted.. went professional with Hartlepool cheated abit added £50 mill bought a few 70-80 rated players I keep losing avg 4-0 each game. Does this mean my level is always gonna be semi pro.. or I’m I doing something wrong with Hartlepool. TIA

    1. I still win in some games, but if the game want you to lose, even club with overall player 70 can beat you.. (profesional difficulty)
      Because they too responsive than you.. Its like you play agains two player directly without any delay when shoot, tackle and pass..

  7. Can I please have some advice on how to make semi pro more difficult as I seem to be scoring at least 4 goals every match and I would like the premier league and champions league seasons to be a challenge.
