Play on the weekend during fut champions. The best players are then either busy with fut champs or holding div1 against slightly weaker players.

It's mostly luck of the draw though. Although you can leave if you see some who has been playing fut for a long time.

FIFA 17 - Trial of Power

There is an easy, yet slightly tedious and frustrating way to boost this. I managed to unlock the achievement using this method. The results of this solution are provided after five, three-hour sessions of trying various tricks, 65 draft entries, and hours of frustration. As a result, the below is foolproof, to a degree.

You need:

1. Four players (each with two accounts). This saves time, the more actual achievement hunters, the more time it takes. It's best to have people from the same country as you, to maximise connectivity.
2. A fair amount of coins, points or draft tokens (or all three, I had 217k, three tokens).
3. A lot of patience, some trial and error, and a will to boost this over multiple sessions.
4, On the main menu, go to Customise > Online Settings > Matchmaking Options. Where it says Approximate Location Matchmaking, you want to set this to NO.

This boosting method takes TIME. Don't expect to get this in one, two or three sittings. Due to EA Servers, the vast amounts of people playing the game, and connection issues, it takes time to match up to your fellow boosters. I can't stress this enough. It takes TIME (I got it after four sessions, with some minor issues in between).

Now - Pick one person to win, then you work towards pushing them through the levels (1 win, 2 wins, 3 wins, 4 wins). You should only do ONE at a time. They need to win four games in a row for this achievement, so use those extra accounts to aid in this. A typical bracket system is required; A plays B, C plays D, E plays F, G plays H, A then plays C, E plays G etc while the losers reset and get another team ready to rinse repeat. You can only connect to people on the same bracket as you (2 wins v 2 wins, for example).

This is where you will have the most trouble. Sometimes, you cannot match up to someone, no matter how often you try. If you decide to boost, it's best to do a little legwork and use people you can connect to. This is there the trial and error comes in.

Now, in the four win streak, you CANNOT play the same account twice, so organise the brackets and second accounts to reflect this. With extra accounts, this is not an issue, but don't fall into this trap. It'll save you time and error. Once you have the achievement, this resets, so you can play everyone again.

If you have issues connecting, resetting your cache and Xbox, as well as your router, are excellent ways to resolve this. Also, backing out to the main menu and going back into Ultimate Team is a good way to find your fellow booster. This is the tedious part, however, once you find someone the first time, it should flow smoothly.

Pay attention to who is where in the brackets, and slowly boost them up. You can quit after 20 minutes in a game, as long as the winning player has a goal to their name. Quitting at 0-0 will result in you staying where you are in the bracket (experienced multiple times legit). It's also best to score an own goal from kick off, in case you get disconnected. It's the EA servers, after all.

If you need to share coins across accounts, sell bronze players for 10k, and have your second account/buddies purchase them (pricing them high on auction will ensure you can find them, and that no one else will buy them in the process). If you can't do this, be willing to buy points or play Ultimate Team games to fill the coffers.

I think I covered everything...

Good luck. Any questions, pop them below.

Like I said, this takes time, but it's less frustrating then playing the game legit. The FIFA 2016 draft was awesome, but this year ... it seems a little less fun.
