  1. Bumping this one, and adding an additional question... Is the instruction defensive line an out of possession shout?
  2. I've been thinking about this for a while now, so I thought to ask it here as it may be rather stupid questions... 1. Is the direct effect of team shape only in possession? Now, I do understand that this will for instance affect the defensive transition indirectly, but does the compactness etc only come in play in possession? In the tactical changes thread for FM16, THOG states that the team spreads out more vertically in possession... I just want to confirm this. 2. Does passing length affect crossing? For instance, if I use "play out of defence", my wingbacks will get the lowest possible range regarding passing length... Will this affect their crossing, or is that a separate entity? Thanks in advance!
  3. Can you explain why you chose these mentality/team shapes combinations?
  4. In FM-terms the formation would probably be a 5-3-2 with wingbacks. I see the formation in FM as the defensive shape when your team is defending in their on half. When Belgium attacked the right flank of italy, Candreva stepped up forming a 4-4-2 as Darmian would drop deep forming a back 4. The same would happen when Belgium attacked the other flank. If anyone here have read THOGs "Lines and Diamonds", the 5-3-2 WB in FM does just that.
  5. Does the compactness of team shapes only come into effect when in-possession?
  6. I suspected that! Thanks anyway. I have another question thou. Which role is the more attacking-minded of the fullbacks? Is it wingback - attack or is it complete wingback - attack?
  7. I don't know about that! Here's a picture which illustrate the halfspace(s)! I want my fullbacks occupying their respective halfspace and offer support to the midfield. In turn, I want my wingers to provide the width by hugging the touchline and stretch the opposition defense.
  8. Hi! I may have a stupid question that has a obvious answer, or maybe not. The thing I've been wondering about is if it's possible to make your fullbacks occupy their respective half-spaces? And a question about wingers, if it's possible to make them huge the touchline to really provide width and stretch the opposition defense?
  9. Hi! I have a question regarding pressing. You wrote that you could either press in a full pitch press or three-quarter press when using a high block, and a half pitch press when using a medium block. How do you translate this into FM, say for instance with a counter/standard mentality?
  10. I have two stupid questions... What's the difference between an a) Complete Forward; Support and Deep-Lying Forward; Support, and b) Roaming Playmaker and Box-to-box Midfielder?
  11. Regarding to these changes in team shape, which team shape would best represent this seasons Man Utd side in your opinion The Hand of God? Or for that matter Barcelona and Bayern Münich?
  12. Well how do you achieve that kind of high press? I've tried so many combinations, but I feel like the pressing is very poorly implemented in this game.
  13. How's your pressing @allyc31? Do you feel like the players press as much as they're supposed to? I'm playing with bayern and trying to emulate in some ways pep's style of play, and was also considering removing hassle opponents and add it as a PI instead.
