I second that comment about practice, especially as someone who used to be a EA Hoops fan. I love how they say "practice your moves on the court", then you can only do it with one player. It's a team game, and it pathetic that you have practice in the football games, but not in the hoops games, where correctly running plays are critical for many teams, especially ones with complex offenses.
honestly of all games recently FIFA is the one that's driven me the most batty when it comes to a lack of practice. Set pieces aren't as effective as they can be simply because IMO players don't get enough opportunities to try things out.
It took me until midway through my fourth season in FIFA playing more of the games to finally feel comfortable using a corner as weapon, when it should really be a foundation of your attack.
