  1. It's much faster and smoother. Before the update when I exited the game it took my PC much longer and it had a slight lag upon exiting. But now it is much better. Very nice. ME also seems polished a bit.
  2. My gegenpressing tactic would be something like this.. Control/flexible TI: close down much more, much higher def.line,use tighter marking,use offside,prvent GK passing I would employ this with tactic that has high number of players high up the pitch, so 4-2-3-1 is the best. You also need a high working team with good teamwork and good intelligent passers who can think and react quickly when they win the ball high up the pitch. I am using this system with my team and the results are great. But after I go two goals up, I go back to 4-4-1-1 counter system because this gegenpressing one can be vulnerable on the break.
  3. It's funny how you can't just tell the player "stop with the longshots" because he has this in his PPM. Ok, I get it. You like to shoot. But do not shoot because I am your boss and I am telling you to stop.
  4. I've added the "hold position" PI to Kramer, removed att duty to support for my left back and removed "short passing" TI to mixed. Also, when away I play standard mentality with right winger on support. The results have been very good, especially when I removed short passing to mixed, it seems it has removed the shackles from my players and now we play faster and we are much more dangerous. Last night I've played all the way until winter break, and after 17 games, we're sitting in the 4th place, only two points from CL spot. I bought Marko Pjaca from Juventus, so we'll have another great attacking player on the right wing too. I am causciously optimistic going forward but CL qualification is not entirely out of the picture.
  5. Yeah, I've tried that but felt that then most of my attacks go on the right because DLP uses more the right winger then Pulisic, so I switched it so that Pulisic gets more involved. Right winger is probably the weakest part of my team right now. He is ok, but nothing special. And I couldn't find a better player on the market to improve because I didn't qualify for europe and there just weren't any good right wingers on which I'd want to spend money. I will try to give PI:hold position to my MC.
  6. Yes, I know about Sahin. But for now I have him, Dahoud and Ajer who can play this and I play Sahin because of his superb passing skills. Dahoud is a bit better physically but not much bette rin that regard to play him before Sahin and Ajer is still only 20, and I want him to improve on his passing skills before I play him in first team. Maybe I shouls switch Kramer to Sahin's position..he's much stronger and defensivly solid but not such a great passer, but maybe it would be better.. So, I'm aware of the problem but for now I won't change Sahin. I will just play 4-1-4-1 against better teams like Bayern, BVB and Leverkusen.
  7. Ok, so I did make some changes to my original tactic during preseason and now it started to look much better. I have added TI: short passing,play out of defence,work ball in box,close down more,prevent opp gk passing. This with control mentality and flexible team shape. I had some changes in personel also, the roles now look like this: GK - Yann Sommer - GK/def DR - Sebastian Jung - FB/s DC - Niklas Sule - CD/def DC - Francesco Acerbi - CD/def DL - Kolo - FB/att MR - David Concha - W/att MCR - Christopher Kramer - MC/sup MCL - Nuri Sahin - DLP/d...PI:close down much less ML - Christian Pulisic - WM/att..PI:cut inside,less crossing,sit narrow AMC - Martin Odegaard - AM/att..PI:hold up ball,more risky passes ST - Luis Vietto - F9/sup Attacking football now looks very good. I have scored 18 goals in first three games of the season. (seven goals against some minnows in the cup though). But I like what I see. Only now I am a bit vulnerable on the counter because most of the time I will only have two CB0s and Sahin at the back when I loos the ball in the final 3rd. But for now, I am happy.
  8. and do you maybe give TI of "more expressive" to give the players a bit more creative freedom while using team shape that is not encouraging creativity. Especially if you have good players and have to break down a team that parked the bus?
  9. Can you please elaborate why do you think a change in the team shape is necessary?
  10. Will check Leicester thread. I'd like my team to keep the ball in offense,play from the back via Sahin to the attacking phase where Odegaard should be the main playmaker with Pulisic, Hermann and Guidetti as main threats and Kramer to join when he decides there is no risk of a counter. If the attack breaks down, there is Sahin to recycle possesion (this is a bit of a problem since on this ME everybody likes to shoot rather than recycle posseission). So patient style and waiting for cracks to open. In defense I want to keep shape so no high press game. Alternatively, when facing strong opposition, I want to sit deep(therfore defensive mentality) and upon winning possession to exploit the space in the wide areas of the pitch(therfore clear ball to flanks and pass to space). I don't care to have possession in this types of games. Also to team to keep shape and have two banks of four at all times behind the ball when defending.
  11. Well, Pulisic should operate as inside forward just from ML starta,no? Also Kramer did score a few from his position. I don't know. What would you suggest? That's why I'm posting. I am really out of ideas here. I played Odegaard as na AM/A too..didn't really see anything good come out of it. But let's say I have Pulisic,Odegaard and Guidetti as 3 main attacking players with Kramer and Hermann providing additional options. Is that not what the system is set up to do?
  12. As the title say, I am having huge issuess on this game. And I don't understand why. I am playing with Gladbach, I would say an above average german side. For sure good enough to be in top7 which is the goal that the board will set for you. But in my first season I finished 11th. And in my second seaon, I finished 8th. My problem is lack of any kind of consistency with my teams performances. I have tried a lot of different formations and tactical variations over this two seasons and didn't find one that would give me a sustained period of positive results. Mostly I would go on 3W and 2D over five games ant then fall into abyss of like 3W in next 10 games. Away form has been absolutely shambolic. I dont know for sure but over two seasons I don't think I have even 10 away wins. So, with that said, I want some help with my current formation which now in my 3rd season I want to play all the time. 4-4-1-1 formation with standard mentality and flexibile team shape and no TI's. For keeping leads and tough away games defensive mentality with flexibile team shape and TI's(pass to space,clear to flanks). GK - Yann Sommer - GK/def DR - Sebastian Jung - FB/att DC - Nico Elvedi - CD/def DC - Francesco Acerbi - CD/def DL - A.Figuerido - FB/sup MR - Patrick Hermann - W/sup MCR - Nuri Sahin - DLP/def MCL - Christopher Kramer - MC/sup ML - Christian Pulisic - WM/att AMC - Martin Odegaard - Treq/att ST - John Guidetti - CF/sup So ,this is my team and roles. I would like my team to keep their shape defensively and close down only in my own half. With the ball to keep possesion and move forward and use Odegaard as my main player and Pulisic,Hermann and Guidetti to play around him and be my 3 attacking outlets. Should I make Odegaard more like AP or AM,,support or attack? The problem is, even though I have quality..and I did use this formation at the end of my 2nd season...for example I'm playing Hertha at home and I get absolutely smashed by them. I mean they are pummeling me and I don't know why..like their team is inferior in terms of quality so I have no idea why I have problems of at least playing even match. My squad strength are very good passers and decision makers , weaknesses are poor strength and aggression. Anyway, how does my system look, are there any obvios mistakes in how it is set up and what would you recommend I should try to get this team playing like they look they can considering the players I have in disposal?
  13. Anyone seen that feature Miles was mentioning where you can identify one player(galactico) for transfer? I can't seem to find that option, but I'm managing Gladbach currently, not really a team that buys galacticos so maybe that's why..? Am I missing something?
  14. Laszlo Benes from Gladbach looks quite good.
  15. maybe it is my tactics but I'm seeing huge ammount of long shots. like I had 24 long shots in one game with work the ball in the box TI. and the tactic is perfectly normal 4123, nothing crazy..its strange.
  16. I cant get the faces and logos to work with the default skin. They work with white and black one though..anyone knows why is that? After playing my preseason games, the game seems kind of easy maybe. I am playing as Chelsea though but I won away to Marseille 7-1 and at home vs PSG 5-1.. Other than that the ME looks fantastic to me. No more crossing issues as far as I have seen, much more different goals beeing scored. I have seen some brilliant counter attacks and beautiful passing moves. Also 3d looks really good, I am still 2d classic guy though. The game looks great overall. Great job SI!
  17. Installed. Now just to do facepacks and logos and will be ready to start.
  18. This. And maybe even get rid of the tedious morale manager which is called team talks.
