I play this game since 1998,i am old but i enjoy this game.I see so many opinions bad,wrong,almost.
I played so far 2 days plus earley acces.I played online,offline,fut,h2h.
I my opinion this is the best FIFA that was ever made.Before you rage hear me out.
I just feel that you have to think before making a pass,or making a cross,i just feel i play footballl,it is so rewarding when you manage to score.You have to think even when you are on box 1 vs. 1 with the keeper,you have to find the best position to shot,or finess,or just tap.
It is the first FIFA where the gameplay from H2H it is useful in FUT.It is only normal that the gameplay is a little faster on fut.Take my advice,play a few matches in H2H seasons,but not with Barcelona,Real Madrid...etc. pick for example Whest Ham or Marseille,play a formation with minimum 2 cm,or cdm(YOU HAVE TO BE REALY GOOD LIKE HEKTIC TO PLAY WITH ONLY 1) the main thing don't force the pass don´t rush it,take your hand off the sprint button,play for the nearst player,it is like in real life,make a few a passes around you,after that the gameplay will open for you.( fut or h2h) for online games
Very important change the tactics in FUT .The default settings are with offside trap,You need to change that in cover,for crossing put a 60 because you need to use the triple A pass,and the passing at 67,in rest it is up to you,high pressure......
For offline games the best formation for me is 41212,for online I think 4231(2) wiht cames that have 4 stars week foot,or any combination of 442,when you are not so good at dribling you need to play with 2 striker formation.
The best thing also is that you have to know when to use the pace,to find the right moment to sprint,you cannot take messi and go all the way( ok against decent opponents).
It is hard at the beggining but trust,you will like it the way the game it is just oppening to you,it is like playng real footballl wit your head up, and the best part is doesn't matter if you use pace,or dribling,or passing,you cannot beat your opponent only abusing this features,you have to think and anyday can be a score like CELTA-BARCA 4 1:
