My easy tip to get better instantly
Change the camera to Dynamic High. That's it. I've been playing this series forever on the default camera, and boy does it stink. With the Dynamic High camera I can see ahead of the play for better break-out passing. Plus, and my ability to cycle in the offensive zone has greatly increased now that I can actually see my defenders back at the blue line. I know this is a stupid newb tip, but since I changed my camera my online record has improved immensely.
