    Default Too many goals

    Very early days, perhaps I shouldn't be posting just yet but there seems to be too many goals flying in! Many more 4-3, 5-1 etc scorelines than I'd expect.

    Tremendous fun, though, perhaps it's intentional????

    What sort of formation/team instructions are you playing? I usually play attacking football so end up with quite big scorelines, but there have been careers where I've taken a defensive strategy in the long-term and had quite low-scoring seasons.

    I'm inclined to agree. I'm playing a standard 4-4-2 and my first 6 games (3 friendlies) have an aggregate score of 26-9!

    I'm playing standard 4-4-2 with a Balanced mentality.

    I've played 2 friendlies and 11 league / cup games and the aggregate is 43 - 27!!! So an average of 3.3 - 2.1. 5.4 goals per game seems a little high.

    Ok, I'll have a bit of a look here with 4-4-2 and see if there's anything out of the ordinary. Would be interested to see your for/against after a whole season once you've got that far!

    As Burton Albion I won a game where I was slight favourites 7-1, and a game where I was the underdog 6-0. Seems pretty high scoring to me

    The amount of goals seems fine for me at the moment. 17 league games played, I'm in 1st place in the BSS with Basingstoke, 35 scored 16 conceded. That seems reasonable to me.

    I just finished my first season (I was in charge of Burton Albion). Making a mere 4 signings and 2 loan players I finished the season with 201 goals and conceding 44. That's a heck of a lot of goals. :P

    (Oh, and I found a few minor glitches along the way which I have put in my bugs thread, I'll update the first post).

    Can anyone finding scoring excessive please email me their save games (marc.vaughan@sigames.com) - with the new somewhat more flexible tactics system in 2012 its possible that you've found an exploit against the AI which wasn't possible previously .... on the other hand you might just have sugar daddy enabled and Ronaldo in your side?

    You were using a 4-1-3-2, right? It's been noted internally that this formation can be slightly too effective in terms of creating chances on occasion.

    I'd definitely have to agree with this. With Newport County using a custom 5-3-2 attacking I made up, I have 147-28 (for-against) after 37 games! Either I'm the special one or something iffy has gone on. Sadly I think the latter..

    Please forward me the save containing your team and tactic - I'll happily ensure you're more challenged in the future by ascertaining why the AI manager isn't countering things effectively enough

    Thanks for the reply Marc, I've sent you an email (hopefully successfully...) with my saved game.

    Yes, that was the formation I was using (I posted it onto vibe, if you want to see anymore). I'd also appreciate if you could save fixing it until after I've reached the premiership^^

    @Marc, I'll attach my save in another thread where I found a bug that (for me) is game breaking.

    I have just emailed yourself and Alari my savegame file.

    I played the whole season with Bristol Rovers playing a balanced 4-4-2. The stats I've ended with are:
    181 - 90 (51 games)
    3.62 - 1.76 average
    5.4 goals/game

    Still seems a high average. I'd have thought that, on average, there are about 3 to 3.5 goals/game?
