    I feel your pain fellas. I have been stuck in D2 since the last patch. Before that I climbed the division straight through... but now the gamplay has changed a lot and EA has really gone overboard trying to "Balance" the game play. I basically go 3-4-3 over and over again by have continuous W-D-L results. I think part of it is me needing to adjust to the changes since the patch, but the other part is that EA really dumbed the game down so there are very few effective ways to score anymore. Before the patch, cutting in from the wing was deadly, now it is just spamming short through balls between the Cb's and people hoping for a lucky bounce. Game has really regressed a lot.

    I play every night. 3-4 games at least. I ran up the divisions and began D1 on the first day of the final patch. Got relegated and been in D2 ever since. I'd love to play you.... we shall see who is "not very good?"

    The only thing that has really helped me is using the teammate pressure/contain when they get into or close to the box, it will basically bring an extra man in to help with blocking shots and pass angles. The best players can use this (Rb) and then controll another player to cut passing lanes at any part of the pitch... a lot of D2/D1 players are really good a cutting passing lanes. It is even more difficult to beat than high pressure... because you have to be both a good passer and a good dribbler to break it down.
