  1. Eh, I got tons of useful tactical advice when I couldn't even build my team right. Reading complints for the sake of complaining is another thing tho
  2. Try FC Krasnodar in Russian prem. They have enough class and budget to win the league on first or second season, but raising youth (they have prospects and facilities) is another way to go. Somehow AI always ditches their talents and starts buying foreigners, maybe you can make it as it's supposed to be
  3. Nah, don't think so. People have been asking to do something with stale press conferences and flawed interaction for a long time. Since this is not the year (though more news might be on the way), this topics will keep on comoing. Oh and don't forget "ME is flawed, cause I can't score at all"
  4. Club vision is nice, I hope it would really work, not be a cosmetic improvement Development center is really handy, now we can controll all the growth in one window - really cool Rest? Meh.
  5. Hi, people. I've been using in-game (don't judge me please, not for cheating purposes) to create a narrative for my manager and I've stumbled upon a reputation parameter. So maybe someone here knows the answer to following: I've been playing a journeyman and got an invitation from a club in a better league with half a star reputation bigger than mine. By that time I've overacheived all goals, had almost ultimate support from the team and in general was on the rise. I took the offer and as the season was done decided to resign, not to wait a month for a contract to expire, to get extra time for preparations. having taken new team I was surprised to see that half of players was opposing me. I've spent a dreadful 15 games and had to leave after which I only could join a club 1 star lower (that's even lower than my previous) and only a year later So, the questions are, does every resignation gives you a penalty, no matter results or just saving time? What gives you a bigger penalty resigning or getting a boot? I starteed to get into journeyman style, so I would appreciate the answers
  6. I've found two different approaches to go with, when opposition tries to press me into my box: 1. Dry the game down. Mission is - get the ball away from your box and not give it away fast, so they couldn't launch another attack. Instructions are: GK takes time on the ball and rolls it out or kicks short, tempo is high or extemely high, passing is short, play out of defense, work ball into box, attack narrow, dribble less, regroup, hold the ball. You need holding role in DM (DLP, ANC, HB) to execute this and many support roles in general. Mentality - defensive. Best used by the end of game 2. Counter and get set pieces. Mission is to sit tight, but closer they come more agressive you are. Instructions: very low pressing line, but high pressing urgency, defend narrow, long passes, counter, regroup, pass into space, play for set-pieces, shoot more often. You need BWM and ideally P or W(a) up front. full backs are better to be switched to defensive roles, cause you won't be needing much from them in attack and you need them to mark opponent back near the box.
  7. Always have done this since having picked up the game with FM 12, unless parking the bus. Perhaps this is time to start using the role And thanks, I never really thought IWB can stay on the flank, I always thought that this role always underlaps and cuts in on opposition's half.
  8. Yep, pretty much this. I find new training really, really good. I used to complaint a lot about faulty matches, but later I've noticed, that training conversion or attacking set pieces (and I rely on them) really help me winning games. So it goes like this, AssMan plans a week and I make little changes on the go, for example if I stand against a league leader and expect to be pressed in my own box i just choose my counter tactic and set sessions to direct attacks, ground defense and attacking set pieces
  9. SI asks to provide pkm's. Besides there are analysis and stats to look at. This is weird how QA reacts immediately on post like "oh my god my ball is black" but doesn't when it is about match engine
  10. Is there a chance for this to be looked at?
  11. Ok I understood no bug then. Thank you very much for looking into it, I'll take the season further then. Sorry for have taken your time, cheers!
  12. Sorry, I've overwritten it, but I have a screenshot of my sharpness by the end of vacation and one of my competitiors. And that's whole league. Attaching them now. My sharpness before the break was fully prepared 94+. Yeah, I see sharpness grow a bit now, but I haven't even noticed it t the first time. It is a big concern, cause now a player needs 10+ games to get a squad to acceptable levels, and even more if you have large roster and use rotation. And that's not to mention bringing injured players back during the season, this task would be impossible. Jano (IF on the left) had gained +10% for two games played. My GK played both friendlies and still has only 60. Many leagues just don't give you the opportunity to schedule that much friendlies, combined with pre-season, that makes your season twice as long and has nothing to do with IRL preparations. I know, that fitness was on latest update's agenda, but this seems like a critical overkill.
  13. Attaching screenshots. I've replayed the date, still the same. Conditions only go down I've uploaded my prematch save as QA_conditions12 as well Thank you in advance. I hope you'll check this issue out
  14. Hello, people. After the last update players conditions went all wrong. I was in my mid-season break (russian prem), first of all my players returned from holidays with 35 - 55 match sharpness, whereas all other teams have it at around 70 (which seems reasonable for a monthly break). Second, match sharpness didn't increase after a friendly, numbers froze as they were. Last thing -conditions fell very slow during the match itself. My RPM (one of the most energy consuming roles) that had 90 minutes on the pitch ended the game with 75%, which is totally an anomaly for 58% match sharpness. Is there a chance to check this?
