  1. It took half a year to at least start admitting, that two mentalities simply don't work in the latest version, lol.
  2. And none of this works, because no matter how your scouting focus has been set, DoF would try to buy players out of sheer random if you delegate. I have 0 RBs and 4 strikers, but my DoF keeps making offers for strikers. Wishlist is not available as well and if you ask for recommendation you get 5 players at max. By this suggestion I think of realistic mode where head coach doesn't buy players directly (as it happens IRL), but rely in board, which is unexecutable now
  3. For the last three or four FMs I’ve been trying to use DoF more to add realism to the game, but up to date DoF is nothing more than a decorative role, completely deprived of game’s logic. My suggestion is that there should be an option for players to switch transfer responsibilities from themselves and delegate to DoF but leave some degree of control. Consider the following, IRL coaches have little say in transfer policy of clubs they work in, if we exclude top coaches that can stick it to the board. What I suggest is strip players from total control over transfers (by choice of course) for th
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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"
  7. 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.
  8. 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 tim
  9. 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 gam
  10. 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.
  11. 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
  12. Yep, sorry for being carried away. It's just the general dissapointment over a single issue, that for the moment spoils what promises to be a great gaming experience.
  13. No, he is saying "I don't have this issue therefore it doesn't exist". Which is pretty much as ridiculous as generalization
