  1. First of all, I'm a rook as well, so don't take my word for gospel. A lot of people will also refrain from posting until you give a little more details on your tactic, your players,... Just posting 'my striker doesn't score'... It can be one of a million possibilities. What I do know from my own experience, is that if your striker is getting decent opportunities (and even if he isn't), it's always useful to check if he's having enough space. If you play with a lot of players in the final third, maybe the opponent is just too crowded around him. You can try any number of things: lowering your defensive line if it's very high, playing on a lower mentality, restructuring your tactic so other players are drawing out defenders and thus creating space... But we'd need more info to say anything for sure.
  2. But when looking at real life, they're never really symmetric either, are they? Just looking at Hazard, you'll find him all over the place.
  3. Thanks for the idea. Tempo is one of the few things I haven't played around with. I'll definitely see what that gives me. Just out of curiosity, what is it about asymmetrical tactics you dislike? Is it because you can sometimes get double team'ed by teams playing with wingers?
  4. Hi guys, Some of you might remember me from previous years. I'm still a rookie, mainly because I usually play 3 months and then only return about a year later - blame FMM. It's because of that I'm only slowly making progress towards a better understanding of the game. So forgive me for returning once more. This year I started with the preset styles the game has to offer. i started with choosing the possession based style and chose a formation the game suggested to me. I didn't quite like how it played, so I made some adjustments, culminating in what you see below. It worked a treat for me: I used KV Mechelen in the Pro League B in Belgium (second division in Belgium that is). My team was quite strong compared to the others in the division, but nonetheless, 24 wins and 4 draws in a total of 28 games... I thought that wasn't too bad. But I did get the feeling that not everything was perfect just yet. My goals are spread out pretty nicely. My right WB got 11 goals, my AP 8, my MEZ 8, my striker 9, my support MC 8, my winger 11,... But my striker got through enormous droughts where he couldn't score for extended periods. Not really a problem since we're still scoring, but the ratings for the strikers are pretty consistently bad. Like 6.3. I then switched to Liverpool to get a better feel of how good my tactic actually is. I'll admit the players are not truly suited for this tactic, but it's for experimental purposes. This save confirmed my feeling: the tactic is decent, but is still lacking in certain parts. Namely the striker position. I can't seem to decide on which is the best option for this tactic. I'm not the best analyst of game footage (yet), but I can recognise that the pitch is congested in the final third, making it hard for the striker to find space. But it gets worse if I remove him as he provide necessary pressure on the opponents' defense. I'm also second guessing my MEZ as the idea was for him to offer support to the WB on the right. In reality, the WB is cutting inside (which is cool) and the MEZ seems to lack some impact. I'm not looking for a miracle cure, but I would love it if someone could help me understand where the gaps in my logic are. Defensively we're quite solid, currently I'm struggling to get my striker firing - or really having any sort of meaningful impact. Am I overreacting or am I right in thinking I have some more work to do? I'm mainly holding off on continuing my unbeaten save as we're now going to the first division and I want to be ready! Thanks in advance.
  5. Yes and no. Engine changes will be working on existing saves, but the database (players and transfers etc) will remain the same. When starting a new game, the February database will be standard but you can choose the old one too.
  6. I enjoy 4 at the back, with wing backs in DMC strata. Looking forward to the changes you mention. 15 titles in a row with Anderlecht is just too unrealistic
  7. This is correct. Is Mechelen is champion and they reach the cup final, they won't have played a single game for two months. It's one of the many drawbacks. Because theoretically it's possible for the second placed team to go into europe, while the first placed team 'only' gets promotion.
  8. I've noticed the same for every WC after the 2022 one. I'm approaching a new WC so I'll grab you one save from before the pick of 30 players. (Will have to wait till the weekend though)
  9. Is this good or do you prefer I email it somewhere? https://drive.google.com/file/d/17Xh_tZewBJewOXR8BzdJGQg4tNG6QUKA/view?usp=sharing Also check this link for my specific problem pwetty pwease
  10. Last season was 82 (international not included) - that 1K is coming along just nicely (check out Vibe, some people are aiming for 2K, scoring about 120 each season)
  11. Hi guys, I noticed that the wage system isn't really flawless yet and I was wondering if you could offer any help. My current star player, Jérémy Doku, two-time winner of the world footballer of the year, multi-champions league winner (6 golden boots), won the european championships twice, is included in every drem team/team of the year and, well long story short: he scores 75 goals per season on average and wins every golden boot/personal prize possible. Yet I can't offer him more than 600K per week in wages, even though my financial page says I can offer players up to 800K. On the other hand, I have the regen of Dries Mertens. Scores about 10 goals per season in my system, has won best young player at thte world cup and European championship, but that's about it. Yet I CAN offer him 800K... It's causing me problems in keeping Doku, while I would really love to keep him (and I don't really care about the regen). Is there anything that can be done about this discrepancy, please? EDIT: for clarity, Doku is not a regen. My title wants to say that a relatively unproven regen might have a higher reputation and thus get higher wages than the best player in the world - not a regen?
  12. Yeah, performance wise it's crazy how well the Mate handles it. I'd guess 3 times more smoothly than the switch does it.
  13. I jst went to the Google Play Store. Most times it just shows up, though sometimes it doesn't. Apparently you also do it by going through steam.
  14. Normally you'd only be able to buy FM Mobile for your smartphone, but just today I installed the Touch version as well Text is really tiny, but it's playabel.
