    *edit* anyone asking for more information.

    Unfortunately for Div 5 and higher - I didn't record the difficult but from what I remember are about professional at the highest and really easy to beat

    Div 4 - the easiest season has professional and world class difficulty with a star rating ranging from 1 star too 2 and a half stars and requires 21 points

    Div 3 - the easiest season has professional and world class with one legendary all teams are 3 star and requires 23 points for promotion

    Div 2 - You have 2 choices...
    Option 1 build a team from one club to meet the entry requirements which has professional- world class 3 star - 4 star teams and requires 26 points for promotion.

    or

    Option 2 with 90 chem requirement world class - legendary, 2 and a half - 4 star teams with a 23 points for promotion

    I got through all of the seasons until div 2 where i picked option one with an 80 rated team but it did include pace I played 442 with batshuayi (chelsea) and musa (Leicester) up top mirallas (everton) fabregas (chelsea) wilshere (arsenal) benardo silva (man city) in midfeild and rose (spurs) keane(everton) cahill (chelsea) clyne (liverpool) and I didn't have any losses.

    Legohead 1977There was an issue on seasons, but it's been working now for a week or so...just posting here in case HATCHET IRL hasn't seen that it's working yet!

    I have followed the guidance above so far, Division 3 not lost any games once I changed my team to suit, all Premier League, all pace, 4-3-3 with two players for every position, pace in brackets below, legendary players were gained at the start of FUT:

    GK Van der Sar LEG - Schmeichel LEI
    RB Bellerin (95) ARS- Pereira (90) LEI
    CB Desailly (83) LEG - Keane (72) EVE
    CB Bailly (78) MAN - Christiensen (72) CHE
    LB Moreno (88) LIV - Masuaka (87) WES Position Changed
    CM (R) Walcott (91) EVE - Bolasie (87) EVE
    CM (L) Atsu (86) NEW - Richarlison (85) EVE
    CAM Rashford (92) MAN Position Changed - Armstrong (84) SOT
    RW Lucas Mora (93) TOT - Felippe (92) WES
    ST Shevchenko (88) LEG - King (90) BOU
    LW Deulofeu (93) WAT - Nkoudou (91) TOT Position Changed

    I also have Fred CM (82) MAN and Antonio ST (85) WES as back ups. There are faster people out there such as Salah and Aubameyang but they only appear for about 100K, all of the above were below 10k, with most of them around 1K. Rating is 84 I think and chemistry is 100. I let the money build up as I play, then have a quick look after each division to see if any bargains are up. (Just got Bolasie, Atsu and Walcott for a steal).

    Legacy defending is essential as well! Have only conceded about 3 very bizarre goals since switching.

    After the delivery of my new shiny One X this week, I thought it was time to eventually unlock the most laborious achievement of the game to get my first completion on the console, finally finishing FIFA 18.

    As the two other solution have stated, the easiest method is to complete this offline via single player. To start, it is advisable to build a solid silver rated team. I opted for an MLS build revolved around Gyasi Zardes from LA Galaxy, found within the later stages of The Journey. From this I opted for a pacey team, which is a vital key in the higher divisions. You should aim to build a full squad for around 5-7k or more, depending on your current bank of UT coins.

    Utilise coin boosts and focus on building a bank of around 20k to splurge out on a semi-decent gold squad. The silver team that you have built will more than suffice up until around division 5, where the difficulty and entry requirements become slightly more challenging. From division 5 > 10 the highest difficulty that you will face is professional, providing that you opt for easiest fixture list, which is always the first one you select.

    If you're not an avid FIFA fan or a little experienced, professional difficulty may seem daunting at first but you will get used to the playing styles of the CPU and develop your own method of playing the ball and scoring. At the beginning I was winning a mere 1-0 for the majority of games but towards division 3>, I was scoring 4 + a game.

    My gold team comprised of the full Leicester City squad (very controversial to some), but can be built under 15k and to be honest is a solid all round team, with pace up front and robust defence. 4-3-3 (3) was the formation I played with from the start to the very end, working very well with my playing style, passing comfortably around the defence and taking advantage of Vardy's pace and shooting ability.

    When playing on world class I found it important to switch to ultra-defensive to ensure most of my players stayed back, as the CPU on higher difficulties can cause chaos thanks to poor defending system on the game.. Also, I repeatedly bought training cards (+10 attributes) to OP players such as Vardy and Mahrez.

    This achievement is all about taking your time when playing and ensure your team is well maintained, fitness cards.etc. You will easily play over 70 min to unlock this, expect to lose on the odd occasion; as others have said, you can dashboard or leave the game if losing and you will not lose a match.

    My overall record was 69-9-3 when finished, however around 10 of them were from other games within UT. Hope this helps for some, just be prepared to invest a great deal of time and enjoy the scripted game that FIFA is.

    Un6erwoodI started in Division 6 on Friday night and unlocked the achievement late on Saturday - expect to play around 8-9 games per division.

    neeker75As I mentioned in the other solution, go to controller settings and switch defending from Tactical to Legacy. All the World Class/ Legendary games become easy mode with Legacy defending. Just hold A when you're without the ball, and you'll win the ball back easily. Pass the ball from side to side to open them up, fast winger cut in and you're done. I was thrashing World Class opponents by 4 with a full Liverpool team with Salah and Mane on the flanks.
