  1. The game ought to be manual controls period..
    EA would do well to offer a DLC add on that’s just manual gameplay.
    It makes things so much better.

  2. When turning autoswitching to manual, I am still getting automatically switched a lot, especially if I am in the defending team.
    This often leads to me suddenly running a player in the wrong direction, because I don’t notice I switched. Is there a way to turn this completely off.
    “CPU will never switch for you” is definitely not true.
