Play it Cool
The abbreviation PIC is commonly used to refer to Play It Cool. In all competitive matches you can tell your team to play it cool. This will reduce the midfield rating during the game, meaning the team will not perform as well as usual. Other areas than midfield (attack and defense ratings) are unaffected by playing it cool.
The process involves a reduction to 83.945% of the normal expected midfield. In return for the loss, immediately after the match, Team Spirit will increase, so the team will perform better in the next match.
According to some studies Team Spirit will get a boost (multiply your actual TS x 1.33). For example, at the start of the season Team spirit defaults to mid-composed (4.5), and it increases to content (6.0) after PIC in the first competitive match.
