  1. Someone on the last page mentioned trialling stuff in FMT. I wonder @looping if it might benefit you starting afresh in that game mode? It will remove any impact of Tactical Familiarity and enable you to make the changes you want without any detrimental impact on players' "knowledge of the system". At least if you do that it will rule out Tactical Familiarity as an obstacle obstructing your progress. Just a thought.
  2. Bit harsh to imply it could be reluctance or laziness? Maybe it's just a really hard game to code? SI would never intentionally leave a bug in the game if it could easily be resolved.
  3. You need to show your whole tactical setup to get an informed view. Judging by the shot count (which is far too high, and far too inaccurate) you probably use a high Mentality and / or a number of Attacking Duties. How many goals per game should you score? Monaco score almost 3 per game in Ligue 1 this season, but that's not normal. If you look at the top leagues and take Barca / Real Madrid out of the mix, the top teams score two per game.
  4. Just use an AMC Role and wait for the guy to become comfortable in that position.
  5. summatsupeer is (as always) making a whole lot of sense. You'd do well to read each comment summatsupeer posted and then re-read it.
  6. You leak like a sieve though, which isn't too surprising given the Roles / Duties you refer to in which are critical positions if using a 4-2-3-1.
  7. It's not the Mentality that is the problem. herne79 is right - the whole thing needs an overhaul as it doesn't make any sense at all. I'd take his advice and read some of the pinned threads. At an absolute minimum, you have to change formation.
  8. The midfield pairing looks a bit too mobile for a 4-4-2. You've got one fella chasing everything that moves, and another bombing forward when you have possession. It risks leaving your defence exposed, especially with one attacking full back and a staggered wide midfield with both players on Attack Duties. I suspect you look all over the place when you lose possession in the final third.
  9. What improvements do you need to make?
  10. This would help SI enormously, it's something they should look to develop because it IS a faff having to download Filezilla, set things up and manually save and transfer .pkms from your User directory to the FTP server.
  11. That is a lot of crosses. To give the SI guys context, can you confirm the Roles and Duties you use out wide, and any Player / Team Instructions that might influence these numbers?
  12. These are quite good fun! I've not played FM much for about a year, but I've had a few Boxing Day beers and started a save with Celtic and it's just amusing. Really easy to dominate the centre of the pitch and create some interesting combinations.
  13. It depends on what you define a change in tactic to be. By your definition, can a change in tactic be as subtle as a Role / Duty change, or does it have to be a significant change, like a change in formation? I probably tweak at least "something" (usually a Role / Duty, TI, Mentality or Team Shape) in every single match.
  14. Yes. It might not be exactly in "the middle", but their setting's will adjust.
