FIFA 22 is already in the grasp of many hands and it's led to people asking many questions about the game. Luckily, we've got you covered.
While players are busy learning all the new tricks to the game, grasping new FIFA 22 gameplay methods as EA champions its new 'hypermotion' technology and realism side, the online chatter about certain aspects of FIFA 22 have become abundantly clear already.
FIFA Ultimate Team has been by far the most popular game mode over the years since its release, and within that Division Rivals is the real driver of competition. Simply: win matches, climb the divisions, win rewards, get better players and continue to increase your rank.
But it's changed on FIFA 22. Don't worry, we'll explain everything you need to know. You may also want to read our guide on how to make money FAST in FIFA Ultimate Team.

Division Rivals is an online seasonal competition that can be played either on Solos or Co-Op, so you've got the option of how you want to play, with a mate or not.
The game mode is based on a skill driven rank system. Simply, the better you are, the harder your opponents.
Win matches to climb the ladder and you'll increase your rank, division and then you'll be playing for FIFA's top rewards.
This year, a ladder system has been introduced. This means the way in which you go through the divisions and earn rewards is different, and that's definitely worth paying attention to.
Each division is now made up of three different aspects:
Your rank will reflect how you're getting on in a division and as you move up, your rewards will get tastier.
Stages are what they say they are, they are the parts in between. With each stage you get to, you move towards a new rank. Winning a game will move you forward one stage, drawing keeps you at your current point and losing moves you back one, unless you reach a checkpoint.
Checkpoints are your safe point. If you ever played Crash Bandicoot on PlayStation 1 as a kid, you'll know this all too well. They prevent you from going any further back than the point you've reached.
The key question. When can you cash in on those rewards? They come out every single Thursday but in terms of timing, it will of course depend on the country you live in, but if you're in the UK it is 8am.
Divisional Rivals rewards are both weekly and seasonal.
