  1. I am near the top of the table with my Chicago Fire, very solid defense and lots of scoring chances. I typically out shoot teams 20 to 8 or so but scoring chances are rarely converted. It is frustrating to watch sometimes but I basically win games with a great defense that gives up few chances and set-piece conversion. My leading scorer is a centerback who is average at aerial and heading but I spend TONS of time in training on attacking set-pieces On weeks without games I do several set-piece training sessions and score plenty of set-piece goals without a cheat. I will try some of Fuss's crossing and tempo adjustments and report back. If more scoring chances can be converted you could really do some damage in a league with an average team like I have.
  2. thanks for the help! This SI games forum always has some really helpful people like yourself. Keep up the good work!
  3. looks like an interesting tactic. I just started playing FM 20 after years with FM 18. What are you doing with training for this tactic?
  4. Loversleaper, I came across your tactics a few seasons ago and it completely changed the way I play the game and brought an immense amount of enjoyment to the game because you chose your tactics based on the odds of the next game provided you had settled on the formation for your team. It looks like you are doing the same for FM 16. Do you plan on posting tactics we can download for each formation again? Thank you again for giving those of us out there without quite the time to iron out the tactics a change to really enjoy the game.
  5. Early results are good but when I check the other manager's style it almost always says "mixed" and rarely says anything else. When I check to see where the other teams goals are coming from it always says "right wing" or "left wing". Any input would be helpful.
  6. LL, What are your views on changing formations? For example in FM10, I typically use a 4-2-3-1 but have you noticed whether it helps to change to a 4-4-2 if the Pre-Match Report says the team you are going to face "struggles against a 4-4-2" or plays strongest against a 4-2-3-1/4-5-1? Is it worth changing based on these circumstances do you think?
  7. Thanks for linking that and thank you again for coming up with these tactics as it has the whole tactical framework has made the FM experience more enjoyable and realistic.
  8. Could you set up that link for those FM10 tactics? I gave FM11 a go and it crashed once which tells me it will happen over and over until they fix it.....if they do. I think I will just stick to FM10 for the next month or two or until things get fixed.
  9. Is FM11 really playbable at this point? I have a copy of it and the patch downloaded but I have not played due to all the complaining about various issues that seem to have taken the fun out of the game for a lot of people........Should I just stick to FM10 until all this gets sorted out?
  10. Loversleaper, I am only interested in all the 4-1-2-2-1 tactics from FM10 that I can use in conjunction with the 4-2-3-1. I need those as I have a huge hole in my team when playing against an AMC. So that would be the 6 tactics listed there on this link: http://community.sigames.com/showthr...al-amp-Insight Thank you in advance.
  11. What I mean is that i think something changed in the tactical engine in that when I download the FM 11 tactics to my folder in FM10 they do not seem to be compatible.
  12. Loversleaper, I am trying to download your tactics to my FM10 game but they do not seem to work. Can you use the FM11 tactics on FM10 or can I find your tactics for FM10 somewhere? I use the 4-2-3-1 set-ups but need the 4-1-4-1 set-ups for FM10 which I did not download earlier this year (I did download the 4-2-3-1). Also, I want to congratulate you on last year's post on the same topic. I learned a ton from your tactical theories and it helped my enjoyment of the game immensely. I have been playing CM/FM for over 10 years and am older now and simply don't have the time anymore to endlessly try out and test tactics. Your framework allowed me to play the game from a great theoretical framework without having to develop it myself which I do not have the time for (and this game has gotten much more complicated with each new edition). Thanks for your research and writing.
  13. Fuss, I tested your tactic (V2) on the pre-patch game and it worked well and now it seems to work with the patch also. I thought I read somewhere in this thread that you used to use a diamond 4-4-2 in FM06. I used a 4-4-2 diamond wide in FM06 as well as FM05 and it doesn't seem to be effective in FM07 for two reasons: 1. I typically played my backline higher up with the diamond and in FM07 it is complete disaster as you get murdered on through balls. 2. The AMC in the diamond in FM07 seems to get lost and is completely ineffective, at least with the teams I used it with (Chicago Fire and Auxerre). I just wanted to thank you for doing the work on this tactic. I am in my 30's and frankly do not have tons of hours to spend on trial and error with tactics. I am a "make the players fit the system" manager as I find it fits me. One quick question.......has anybody ever had GOOD success employing a 3-back system in FM06 or FM 07? I never seem to pull it off myself and don't see many tactics or here that do. Thank you again!
