EA made it really hard to play against friends in this years OTP and also non-existent in HUT. So the only saving grace we have for playing online against friends in a team format is the drop-in game feature. Oh, what a feature it is. Not only can you experience full 6 on 6 or 5 on 5 competitive games, not only can you actually accumulate stats for your online Be-A-Pro guy, but the most important thing about drop-in games is that you can play with or against a group of friends all by simply pressing that magic Drop-In Game option on the count of three at the same time. This enables you to usually find a match where you can all participate. It might take a few times and it may be harder to do if you have six guys who want to play. But with three or four guys, getting into a match should be no problem. Since EA geared the scoring towards rewarding those who play with a full team, it is no longer a frustrating endeavor trying to build your player up. So for this feature EA, I say thank you.
