  1. I haven't seen anyone from SI in here since before the holiday. Are they still on their break?
  2. Encourage for when you are up against a much better team. Demand more for when your players are complacent. Single out players rather than give the shout to the whole squad. Concentrate for select players when they are "disinterested". All of these work well for me.
  3. Injuries for me are on point this year. No issues whatsoever. I've played 6 seaons so far with FM19.
  4. After experimenting for awhile with the Encourage shout, I finally found what it's supposed to be used for. I have found some success when my team is the underdog (ie Me as Palace vs Liverpool) whilst using Encourage shout. Players become "Fired up by the feedback" and "Motivated".
  5. I played with Uncle Sam's PRO/REL USA database for FM2018 and there were huge issues when my team (started with a PDL team) got promoted to MLS. Off the top of my head, there were problems with DP's. The board didn't allow me to sign any DP's despite having good finances. It's like the ability to sign DP's are hard-coded from the start for teams that start in MLS. When in the player contract screen negotiating with a player, there was no Designated Player Contract option. Also, you know how In the finance summary screen it will list how many DP's you have and how many you can sign. Well for my promoted side, even after several seasons, it wouldn't even list any DP information. It's like the game was completely oblivious to the fact that my team was promoted to MLS.
  6. The AI does give up a ton of long distance goals. I don't think they know how to deal with it. I can mitigate it by playing one of the CB's as a stopper and/or marking and closing down opposition with good Long Shot Attribute with a D-MID. The amount of long distance goals that my team concedes appears to be realistic after 2 seasons. I score a ton and it does make the game a tad too easy.

    [U.S.A.] (Official) League Specific Issues

    AI Squad Building for MLS Teams looks pretty decent this year. A couple of decent Internationals are getting picked up around the league. Benzema is on nycfc, CCVicks on minnesota, and Dries Mertens with Vancouver.
  8. Thanks Neil. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and the staff at SI.
  9. Same here. I'm happy with player condition and injuries this year. I was cruising early and mid-season with no significant injuries apart from 1 to 2 week minor ones. Then going into the final two months of the season I was plagued with some key injuries and led the league with 6 total injuries in the final month. This was attributed to me being successful with CopaSudamerica and making a good run all the way to Cup finals. I could have rotated my players better.

    Hold the Control key on your keyboard and you can click on multiple players, even those off the ball.
  12. Thanks. I don't mind this aspect of the game at all in regards to how it's not black and white. I like that there is some grey area involved or else it would make it too simple. I just needed to know how detailed you guys modeled behavior/body language so I can put my mind on that frequency when playing rather than assume that it's a bug.
  13. If a player is Nervous, how can I cure it? I was playing in Cup Semi finals at home going into the leg up 2-1 on agg. I had a player in the 1st half playing as D-Mid (Anchor) and my team conceded. He then became nervous. So I shouted only to him (everyone else were composed) No Pressure and there was no effect. Then half-time pep talk I told him same thing, calmly no pressure and no effect. He comes out in 2nd half and I shout at him again, No pressure, and he becomes Disinterested according to the body language. The player is 23, good for my division according to my scout. No hates big matches trait, is fairly determined and bravery at 14.
  14. And conceded only 3 from outside of the box in the run of play. That seems pretty realistic to me. I am defense oriented and like to play very tight and compact.
  15. And proof that my save is entirely with 19.2
