    Default Sweet hell, 10.2 is tough!

    With the same players and tactics for a side that has 5 out of 8 prem titles I've started 0-0-2 without putting a shot on target yet! Yikes.

    Making an analysis after two games is ridiculously stupid.

    Maybe it's just a blip in your team.

    No, its terrible, you're team is gonna get relegated and you'll be fired before December!

    At least that's how the current sports media portrays everything (Just ask Rafa)

    Easy, killer. Having a bit of fun. Mind you, it being tough is a very good thing. I'm nowhere near good enough to win 5 out of 8. Relax.

    Haha I'm actually playing as LFC right now. Surprised I haven't had a message saying "the fan club wants you dead" yet.

    See how it goes after a bit longer, i've not noticed an increase in difficulty after playing 10.2 for some time.

    Thanks, I meant to convey excitement in the OP, but I didn't. My bad.

    I have the issue. I was in good form and the patch totally killed it. I can't buy a win

    I am playing my second game postpatch right NOW. Im @ 24 min. The problem is extremely clear, it's opposing passing completition for me. First match I saw them complete almost 90(!!!!) %. Some crazy tactic switches and I got it back to 70, and grabbed enough edge to win it. Now, second match, same thing is happening. I'm playing almeria at home, not the toughest match in the season, but their PC is 74%, which is waaaaaaaay above my limit for teams like almeria in a homematch. I'm just gonna play on, but this might be a bug. I mean, I am playing very physical, aggresive football, so I'm basically trying to pressure my opponents all over the pitch, and I have selected my team partly on workrate, to make up for some of my players' creative brilliance. The likes of Forlan, raul garcia and camacho are real ball winners, and with high pressing this should result in lower passing completition for the opposing team, but I'm stuggling to get this. I'm even switching back to 2d and analysing a lot again to see where the problems are. Ill test and get back to this issue. Plz let me know if this specific issue is actually causing the increased difficulty for you as well, otherwise this post is just me bla-ing about personal bs.

    Edit: The problem is getting clearer and clearer now. My opponents somehow turned into complete idiots. Almeria is playing the most ******** tactic ever against me. 42202 (back 4, 2 dm's, ml,mr, st, st). Neither of the dm's are playing any forward passes, so the only threat is on the wings. I closed down wingers, and never close down both dm's. Their passing completition is still 80, their tackling around 90, yet they got 1 shot on goal (before I made the changes). This is not realistic, and doesn't make any sense. I can't create much myself (big surprise if they're playing 2 anchor men ) but overload tactics for 20 min. got me a goal, and since they're incapable of doing anything with the ball except passing it around that should clinch it for this match. I'm not happy with the changes. Moderator, could you please explain how to disable the update?

    Much tougher to score. In half a season on the new patch have had six matches with over 20 shots and 10 CCC's that have gone scoreless. It's like a completely new game...

    It was all fun and games when I started the thread, now it's just ridiculous. I had a run of six games averaging 21 shots, 13 on target and 9 CCC's per game and scored once. My players are world class, they should hit the net on occasion.

    This isn't about the results, it's about my players suddenly acting like three legged donkeys. I scored 101 in the prem in the season before the patch, and now 17 games in I've scored 16 doesn't add up.

    it appears harder because of the superhuman goalies and the increase in injuries

    Strangely enough, I'm actually finding 10.2 easier than the previous

    My first game with 10.2 resulted in a 5-4 loss to tottenham at white heart (Newcastle United 4th season) and i was winning 4-2 with 20 mins to go, but thats fm made some bad subs and got punished for it. The next was at st james park (non of this sport direct bs) resulting in a 3-2 loss to man city (they are winning the league and havent lost 20 games in) fair enough but then I realised the AI had found the way to beat my tatic so i changed things around and im backing to winning form.

    This is just my few on it but 10.2 isnt any tougher imo. The way op is talking about stupid ai formations is very true but havent really taken notice on pass completion/

    I reckon it's harder too, I was going great until 10.2, I just can't get a win and my players cant score due to goalers being super-human & WAYYYYYYYYYY to many long shots!

    It is much tougher to score because the super-human goalies are out of control. Just wait in the next few weeks you will see tons of complaints about finishing now....because even the best strikers are stopped a lot by amazing saves all the time now.

    Ive played 13 games since patch (patched during season) 5 wins 3 draws 5 defeats scored 30 conceded 18. The previous 13 games I won 10 drew 3 scored 26 conceded 5.

    Cant say that the drop of form wouldnt have happened if I hadnt patched but strangely, considering one of the reasons for patching, I am now suffering horrendously from long shots against me while I wasnt on 10.1.1

    QPR team (my newest save since the 10.2 patch) seem to be scoring quite freely, But I don't know if that is down to Zaki or not

    i've lost 100% of all games since 10.2!! I've played over 7. And my team have stats like 2 shots in a whole game while the other teams are getting 10-20!

    Don't mean to brag but if anything the game has been easier for me after the patch. I have a pretty great team as Liverpool in season 2 though.

    Last 6:
    Portsmouth (H) 8-0
    Sunderland (H) 6-0
    CSKA (A) 6-2
    Swansea (A) 6-0
    Wigan (H) 4-0
    Man Utd (A) 5-1

    Before i've just occasionally had results like that, now they're coming game after game!

    I finished 7th last season and was 2-3-0 this year with 2 or 3 goals conceided and after the patch was released, I lost a home game 0-4 then another one 1-3. It's like a completely different game. The bad thing is that expectations are based on what I've achieved playing 10.1.

    It was like having no defence at all. I think defenders closing down more and marking tighter give the opposition's strikers a lot of room to create space and play through balls. I will reduce closing down (only for defenders) and not apply tight marking.

    Hmm. I've had a better record since patching again but I did take heed of the "For God's Sake do NOT do team talks!" thread yesterday. Maybe they're cancelling each other out.

    I can't defend to save my life. I now have to play with defensive as my starting mentality and I now play a 442 with 4 dm's...

    On 10.1.1 I beat Chelsea with Man City 5-0 at home, but then I went to Stamford Bridge and drew 1-1. And they completely outplayed me. You cannot really judge that result on patch change.

    My Genoa form has increased immensely in Patch 2

    13W 2D 1L in Serie A

    34 For, 5 Against.

    Although it's not really some miraculous coding, most of team should be at their mid-high peak by now, all gelled and tactics settled.

    I've not really seen a huge difference.
    I guess the teams who were optimised to exploit the long shot "bug" in 10.1 (lets be charitable and call it a "feature") are going to find it tougher, but that's a good thing.
