One thing I like to do if styles are important to you is to use the bronze style boosted cards where needed- for example i use a 3-4 and dont use a DT #2 so I use l virgil 11 cap hit- but brings +12 ZD boost to get me my styles boost at over 60/60 ZD/MD
Also, using the speed version of alot of ult legends are op such as John Randle or J Taylor for various blitz schemes- or on oline S hutchison or L allen both cheap as most golds or cheaper and still have some solid numbers
At first I was hyped on this new mode. MUT seemed lame because everyone is in a rush to get 99 ovr players, which makes every team identical. With this new mode I was hoping it would make for more diverse teams being built. Sadly this isn't true, once you get to 3-4 gold stars all you see are 99 dez, 99 calvin, and nanos with 99 clowney. You cant do anything but hope to slow these guys down, no player skill involved at all.
So instead of EA providing a new game experience it seems to me they just found a way to make people chase 99's once again. Get them and you have no competition really. Hopefully they will make those players cost more, but I doubt it.
