FUT Rivals Points for FIFA 21
How are skill rating, weekly score and FUT Champions points calculated?
The first thing you should know is that, at the end of each match, you increase your skill rating, weekly score and Weekend League points, each one with a different goal. These are three types of points in FUT Division Rivals:
1 SKILL RATING
2 WEEKLY SCORE
3 FUT CHAMPIONS POINTS
When you start Division Rivals for the first time, you’ll play a set of placement matches to see how you measure up against other players. You’ll be assigned a Skill Rating based on your performance in those matches, which determines your Division. You can also use the first 30 Squad Battles matches to determine your level in Division Rivals. The result of each match you play in your Division during the week impacts your Skill Rating; build up a high Skill Rating in order to move to a higher Division.
Depending on the Division you’re in, each match has what’s called a K-Factor. That’s the most your Skill Rating can go up or down from playing a single match. The K-Factor is determined separately for each match participant, based on that participant’s current Division since it’s possible that players can be matched up with each other even if they’re in different Divisions.
Here’s an example: If you were in Division 6, the most Skill Rating that you could gain or lose from a match would be 60 since that’s your K-Factor. If you were playing a match against someone that’s also in Division 6 and you have the same exact Skill Rating, the winning player will gain 30 Skill Rating and the losing player will lose 30 Skill Rating. If the match ended in a draw, you’d both stay at the same Skill Rating.
The further apart two players’ Skill Ratings are, the gain/loss changes accordingly. Up to a maximum of 60 Skill Rating points can be gained or lost between the two players.
Each week in Division Rivals is an entirely different competition, and you can earn rewards at the end of it. Your weekly score determines your rank within the Division, and a higher rank means a better choice of rewards when the competition ends.
Your rank is determined by the total of points you get in a single week. This depends on the results of the match and how many goals were scored.
The previous table, shows you how many weekly points you can make. It is important to notice you will not win more points if you score more than 5 goals.
You should also know, that the amount you earn towards your Weekly Score that you get from a FUT Weekend League match is a fixed value for each match you play to completion. You’ll get 400 Points toward your Division Rivals Weekly Score for each match played, whether you win the Weekend League match or not.
That means that if a match ended with a 4-2 score, with Player 1 winning the match, then: player 1 would get 860 towards their Weekly Score and Player 2 would get 330.
Completed Weekend League matches will award Weekly Score in Division Rivals, only if the player has not completed his 30 Rivals matches that contribute to his Weekly Score for the active competition. If it is the case, each Weekend League match consumes one of the maximum 30 Division Rivals matches that count for Weekly Score progress. For players who have already completed 30 or more Division Rivals matches before playing Weekend League, completed Weekend League matches will not contribute to the Weekly Score in Division Rivals.
FUT Champions Points
Every win in Division Rivals not only gets you closer to the next Division, but also takes you one step closer to the Weekend League. An overhauled FUT Champions qualification system awards you with points to use for qualification into the Weekend League. When you have earned enough points, you can redeem them to enter the current Weekend League, or hold onto them to use for a future qualification, so you can decide which weekend you want to play in. Re-qualification to the Weekend League also works differently; each Weekend League win also earns you points that can be used to enter into future Weekend Leagues.
As soon as you reach 2,000 points, you win a token to qualify directly to the Weekend League. In FUT Rivals, there are two ways to win FUT Champions points: playing matches and at the end of the week.
For each Division Rivals match you play, you win FUT Champions qualifier points. You can see in the following table how many points you get for each match.
When the competition refreshes, every Thursday, you win FUT Champions points based on your rank and division. You can see in the following table how many points you get at the end of the round.
