    I don't think you've really addressed the point, instead you called out the users shots on target and ignored the issue at hand which is defensive teams being able to pass the ball around and rack up crazy pass numbers and possession. Again, 300 passes between two cbs and a keeper is not normal or acceptable.. It's great you can achieve those numbers, I have managed it myself throughout my time with FM20, but consistently for an entire season? No way, once your reputation increases after competing for leagues you will face this issue at some point, obviously adapting is part of football, however the way opposition teams go about adapting to you is frankly ridiculous and the advice that is given is very contradictory at times, or just waved away and having your tactic called nonsensical or whatever.

    My team is predicted to finish 3rd in the league and I got this numbers through the last 3 seasons (won and 4th), but I got your point.
    Once I have some spare time, which won't be any time soon, I'll try a save with a top tier team, like Dortmund or some PSG and see if I get the same outcome (opposition playing very defensive and defender with tons of passing and possession).

    There it is, the "it's your tactic argument". Look at the opposition CB's passing stats, that is an absurd number of passes. When you add in the keeper, we're looking at 300 passes between those three players alone. For reference I beat Juventus earlier with my Milan team, we had 57% possession and not even my midfield three have 200 passes between them let alone over 300.

    We use "your tactic argument" because it doesn't happen to us.
    I'm the blue team.
    Me (Brazilian Serie A) against a team that has no division:

    Against a team in the second division.


    One from third division:


    Another lower Serie A team (I'm the black one):


    Against a better team (I lost, but was a fair game).


    I'm playing around with the tactics a lot this season, so I can really tell which one I used in the games, but mainly 4231 and a 370.
    BTW, are you playing on Steam and the game is in the latest version? Sometimes it is just a bug already fixed...

  3. I'm training in Brazil, so I put them to play the whole Regional championship, which is a useless championship.
    Also, I use the First team to play the Libertadores and Brazilian Cup, so the prospects and fringe players are used in the Serie A league a lot, which leads to poor results, but a fast player development.

    Exactly, this is what I mentioned before. Even irl this is not a proper way to crack these teams. These teams are happy with a draw. They play defensively against you because they are scared. If you just drop back a bit to invite them to mistakes, they will just say thank you and play simple risk-free passes. The only way to overcome these teams is by PRESSURE PRESSURE AND PRESSURE. You have to force them to mistakes. But you cant force them to make mistakes by lowering your LOE and D-Line... THis will just take away pressure from them and they will play very relaxed without commiting themselves into dangerous situations.

    Agreed. FM ME is getting better on mimicking real life. Soccer is getting boring and repetitive, IMO.
    I understand that it can be frustating to people though, but you have to accept that if your team is good you must attack and press. You won't win with Real Madrid by using a Low Block.

    Due to coronavirus, I've got some time to finish the file and reuploaded it on Steam. Got impacted by Covid-19 as well, so please donate if you enjoyed this project.

    How can I donate?

    This update is amazing and I've been playing a career with Aimoré (no division club) team for a while now.
    Aimoré is going to play the Libertadores for the first time this year. Got a few guys during this journey, like Tardelli, Alexis Sanchez, Paulinho, Geromel and Paolo Guerrero. Quite fun.

    Really good job mate. Thank you very much it.
    The only pain point I had is that some players from no division clubs have high wages at the beginning of the save, like someone from Portuguesa that receives +40k a month.
    Besides that, it went flawlessly.

    the teams that are promoted into the lowest league in your selected country..so if you want to start in Brazil then the teams that are promoted into the lowest league in the database in the second season

    Thanks. So, if I start in Brazilian first division, it will be any team that was promoted from second and so on.
    I was thinking about starting in the lowest division, but I'm not sure if the teams are renewed... I'll check though.

    Thank you very much :D

    Don't know why they don't just release it without the official players, clubs and etc then...

    At least it would make the Brazilians not have to pay in another currency from another region, if even that is possible.

    I managed to buy the FM18 in this way. But damn, now our currency as quite bad and the game is too expansive to pay in dollar.
