Cards, Cards and More Cards


Recommended Posts

I need some help

I have just downloaded FM17 after my long term FM15 save ran its course.

I have played 5 pre-season games and the first 7 competitive games.  In all bar 3 of these games there have been red cards.  There have also been a lot of yellow cards as well.  This is for both teams, not just me.

I did think it was just coincidence, so I ran a holiday test to the end of the season twice; once with 'keep my tactics' and once without. 

Both tests saw the number of cards dished out remain high and particularly high for full backs.  Again, I checked all teams, not just my own.  In a 38 game season red cards per team ranged from 12-28.

Is this something that others have noted?

Any help gratefully received as I cant see me maintaining interest if this is something that cant be altered.

Many factors affect the number of cards that your team get- player's visible attributes, hidden attributes, team instructions, player instructions, opposition instructions and  even the team talks can fire the players up.  This is not an issue across the board so have a look at your own team first and see where you can change things.

 

I have just looked at my own game and am averaging about 1.5 red cards per season and about 1 yellow card per game.

Thanks for taking the time to reply FrazT

Upon investigation, the problem seems to have been that I was using a downloaded db to take me down to county leagues. Something must have been tweaked in there.

When I started a game with the default database and ran a season to test, cards appeared pretty normal and in line with what you are experiencing.
