  1. Pochares and AFs in lone forward formations aren't a problem and isolation is something that people are after(so sutructured set ups) couse of how easy is to exploit balls over the top and early crosses in this ME with pacey strikers. In fact the more AFs and Poachers the better add one DLFs to the mixture and there you have it. Or don't even bother with that and use 3 AFs I'm the person who was using 41221 with DLFs and F9 religiously and the moment I thought that balls over the top and early crosses might be op I changed ideas and started to create tactics which exploit it and my conclusion is that it's way easier and a lot more effective. They are only good when you play with striker who drops deep. When you look at forums and people struggling with the tactics it's dominated by 41221s with lone striker who drops
  2. F9 RMD AP(s) CM(S) CM(A) FB(A) Sometimes I will use pass into space sometimes not. I'm asking both CMs for more direct and risky passes. Mainly using it with structured and very structured shape.
  3. I belive I'm overloading the right side. I have CM(A) and overlapping FB(A). I really want to belive that this is the case of attributes : a) playmaker lacks vision (which is fact) so he's picking FB and CM b) I need Raumdeuter with low teamwork c) both a and b
  4. I've already tried asjr1982 set up, RMD ended up with 0 goals 2 assists
  5. I will try this but I will use just standard CM(s) with direct and risky passes.I just don't like playmakers in central positions. And yes I'm using overlapping FB on that side so the AP has many easier options to choose from... I was thinking excatly like TheJanitor and westy8
  6. Currently I don't have access to my save but that's how I set up things now F9 RMD AP(s) CM(S) CM(A) I tried to use AP(S) in CM(S) position but that didnt do much. I'm already asking CM(s) for more risky passes and direct play. I tried structured and very structured shapes (to creat as much space as possible) Attributes that I consider important : off the ball, anticipation,acceleration and determination.
  7. So every time I try to buid a tactic where Raumdeuter will be my main scorer I end up with him having more assists then goals. I don't complain about that but lately I've been thinking that this happens because of my favourite attribute which is teamwork. So perhaps if I want him to score more then assist then I should pick up player with low teamwork so he will be more selfish ? So could it be that in some cases low teamwork will be ok ? (which would be completly against my squad selection rules)
  8. Great to see someone reportig the heat map/focus of attack problems. I was playing against Plymouth wide 4231 and they had their right winger sent off early in the game and did not change their formation. I decided to exploit this by attacking left flank. From what I rememeber end game heat map and information about focus of attacks showed thar we were attacking left flank 14% and right 44%...opposite to what I wanted and set up. Imagine what was my surprise to see that Plymouths was attacking more by right side...nonsense. I was the one who stopped playing FM2016 because of those ridiculous crosses and boring goal patterns. I'm very happy to say that rignt now on FM 2017 it's not the case, goals variety is nice and crosses seems to be about normal. The other thing that I noticed are through balls, they are way to effective, especially when combined with two strikers formation. It doesnt matter how deep side will defend through balls goals will come. In fact right now I'm exploiting this heavy and it feels really cheap. Anyone else have thesame observations or it's just me ?
  9. Well 442 with TM's is against teams that are playing with two DM's or 3 at the back(with DM) - against those teams I don' want to play by middle. Anyway this is just example how I can modify the basic 442 - it's not something I would play normaly...
  10. I know that's why I mentioned I will post tactics later. But keep in mind that it is only starting set up - it's not like it's fixed and I won't change it during the match. That's why I nearly don't have fixed instructions - I'm changing things during matches. http://i.imgur.com/kU9mfTA.jpg[/img]"] http://i.imgur.com/O2aWIs4.jpg[/img]"] http://i.imgur.com/xR95Auo.jpg[/img]"] So for example the 41221 may end up like this : http://i.imgur.com/73W5UFa.jpg[/img]"] or 442 may look like this : http://i.imgur.com/N66vGcE.jpg[/img]"]
  11. next part http://i.imgur.com/ZghcofF.jpg[/img]"] http://i.imgur.com/WczxW2d.jpg[/img]"] http://i.imgur.com/rr2qdTV.jpg[/img]"] http://i.imgur.com/C5sumcY.jpg[/img]"] All started from Southend match, here is schedule http://i.imgur.com/ljQVYeD.jpg[/img]"] Later on I will post my tactics. I'm not saying that I should win all of those matches but well few results were totally unfair.
  12. I gave myself another chance to enjoy FM. Now without going in to the details for now I would like to show some screens - this is happening to me in all saves - I'm using different tactics so this one is not related to just one - I have experienced so much of this that I belive this game hates me and cheats... http://i.imgur.com/wmnnI6a.jpg[/img]"] http://i.imgur.com/wmnnI6a.jpg[/img]"] http://i.imgur.com/qzKctnX.jpg[/img]"] http://i.imgur.com/xbIonqF.jpg[/img]"] http://i.imgur.com/ClcD6aj.jpg[/img]"] http://i.imgur.com/3E0h1qc.jpg[/img]"] http://i.imgur.com/uSjkVTc.jpg[/img]"] http://i.imgur.com/OOYSerE.jpg[/img]"] http://i.imgur.com/um8ZMgB.jpg[/img]"] http://i.imgur.com/EQwYlOM.jpg[/img]"] I think I have posted all league draws and looses since Southend match. Where is my luck ???
  13. Lawlore I'm done with the game also. Been playing series from god knows when and loved it but since the beginning of this version I have huge problems with loosing goals from crosses, which drives me crazy. I have tried diffrent formations from 4141 to protect flanks to 3232 to clear the ball but no matter how many players I will have in the box their only striker will score. Its annoying to see marked winger who somehow puts perfect cross to single target surrounded by 4. It can happen sure but when you loose 6-7 goals in a row from headers then its getting stupid. I'm wondering how it's happening that whenever my striker is isolated it's a problem but when I see heat maps and AI team which have two completly isolated players it's not an issue for them - still they are capable of keeping possesion despite two players not being involved - why it's not punished ? Why when the AI team have all players on support(despite isolated striker) they don't have problems with scoring - I mean when I see people making thread's about not being able to break down sides and advices about not having enough runners I start to wonder why it doesnt apply to AI. Why I can't exploit flanks in the same manner as AI. Perfect example it 41221 - try to play it and you will see crosses, crosses more crosses and skinned fullbacks by their wide players yet I can't do the same. I lost patience and came to the point where I don't understand this game. So youre not alone
  14. Yeah I see that all the time and also a lot of different mistakes...can't see how I can change that
  15. I'm really disappointed with the ME. The balance beetwen attacking vs defense is just broken. Play as high d-line as possible, buy the fastest defenders as possible and enjoy wins. Yeah it won't work always but it's enough to get promotion after promotion. How silly it is to play overload mentality against better teams on away matches especially when you are newly promoted and still win.
