  1. One more thing which need urgent fix is the DC's lunching through balls without meaning to. when playing with two strikers up, DC is just hoof the ball up the field [while trying to defend ] and your striker seems to fully understand the ball direction and start chasing him while the opposite DC just clueless and have no idea what to do [ ''Oh, Look! there is a ball! What is it? What should I do...?'' ]. My DC's are not ball playing, they don't have high passing/vision and I'm not playing on counter attack and still it happen so much and so easily and I have no clue why [ happening for me and against me without any seen reason ]. Players just seem to have no intelligence at all. Like zombies. mostly defensive oriented players. How the hell FM18 could produce such a downgraded ME like that, I just don't get it. like seriously. Why it took such a huge decline?
  2. Why would I play this tactics only when needing a goal, instead of start with this tactic and probably win cleanly? If you ST's are fast, it's almost impossible to AI deal with them. In RL there in no magic solutions like this one. Bottom of line, FM18 is just easy as I stated few times. Attacking FB's and 3 ST's staying up just win easily.
  3. IMO, the whole ME does not seems right. It's starts with shots which been poor, terrible defensive position ( full backs which allowing a lot of easy crosses and defenders who can't defend these crosses or provide normal defensive positioning ) , midfielders allowing too much spaces and not defending well and strikers missing a lot of 1 on 1 chances, physical attributes absolutly overpowered in the ME , etc etc... I'm not optimistic about this year FM, and actually came back to FM17 which seems a lot better and balanced. As one of the forum members stated, the blanket is too short unfortunately and I don't see the developers able to fix all this issues up to March. My mistake is me blindly buying FM every year without checking the demo or read the reviews. Next I'll do a lot of research before I'll put my money into it.
  4. Defenders not stepping up to close down striker

    Just wanted to say I completely agree. I truely hope SI investigate this issue.
  5. Any idea how to make the best out of him? Playing him as an advanced playmer AMC, with high creative freedom. He contribute just nothing. My team doing great, top of the PL mainly because Alexis. Ozil just useless for me. Any idea?
  6. Too many shots taken despite contradictory instructions and shots accuracy going hand to hand for me. If shots were dangerous as previous FM and RL , I would not say nothing if my player decided to shoot even tough he asked not to. But since they are so bad and not threatening the opponent GK as RL , it's even more disturbing and a massive issue. If they were good as a world class players shoots in RL from good positions, i'll happily instructmy players to shoot more ot at least won't complain if they'll do so.
  7. @haffaz77 Fully support your videos and your overall thinking. I already gave up about players shooting out of tactics instructions regulary, but come on - the shots are just wierd and ridiculous. Nothing can prevent this. Shooting to corner flags / advert signs too often, while in RL these things are rare as hell, especially in top leagues.
  8. Man United win it all!!

    I think Man utd successfull and Mourinho in particular got fully connection to the ME who fully 'appreciate' crosses and hardcore flanks plays as Mourinho like. Other styles of play just don't work good this in FM18. One or two Powerful strikers, attacking full backs and tadaa, success.
  9. Long Shots and shooting in general

    Me too. My role is definately ended. If no one has intrest in this issue, I won't put my effort in it any more.
  10. There is an open thread in bug's forum regarding long shots, please submit your pkms. I have just upload few. and my advice to SI - just run a season in La-Liga, Seria A or Premier league, You'll see. meanwhile, that's the kind of shots I'm seeing too regularly [ In RL you could see those in the national League, and even that's not sure] :
  11. Long Shots and shooting in general

    @Lexis @Nic Madden @El Payaso Here some Pkm's From my season with Birmingham. Just found few examples [ easily could find more, but I don't have enough time to search ]. Rashford 12 minute first timeshot with weaker foot - wierd decisions.pkm Mo Salah wierd shot 29 minute - weaker foot.pkm Insigne wierdshot 17 minute - right foot.pkm Insige madshot 49 minute with right foot. looked like kicked the ball to advert signs on purpose!.pkm Now look at the below incident with Insigne [ the last PKM] : the above example just happening so much, too much I just can't play this game anymore. a lot of idiotic / mad shots by world class players [ Insigne playing for man utd, looking amazing ]. which is ****ing going to the advert signs! and the commentator? he'll say '' The ball goes out of play for a throw in'' like nothing happened !!! You want more examples? just run a season in premier league and you will see a lot of similar incidents. you don't need much. as for me - I'm playing FM17. can't enjoy Fm18. The long shots and mid range shots are just ridiculous and unrealistic.
  12. Iv'e comeback to my previous season in in FM17, where i'm playing Brentford in the PL. My players are world class, like city/barcelona/real these days. As you can see, the direction of the shots are all near the target as expected from high class players and as happen in RL. No shots to advert signs / corner flag as well. Similar players in FM18 just can't shot like this, unfortunately. Something is not working well with long shots and mid range shots (!) In FM18.
  13. Long shot from right side

    Nic, how are you? Hope you are doing well. In my opinion, even the subjective examples still looking very bad and unrealistic, even they are 'correct'. If a high class player shooting with his weaker foot it still would not look like that. It's completely undirect. Since i'm watching a lot of football and i do consider myself as a true fan of this game, I would say with confidence i don't see this kind of shots happen so often in top leagues and to top players as it happen in the game ( Spain, Italy, Germany, England, France etc etc ). Shooting in general looking very wierd and unrealistic IMO.
  14. Long Shots and shooting in general

    Lexis , Thank you for opening this thread. I'll contribute my own pkms on this thread soon when i'll get home from work. That's a real issue, a deal breaker for me as i have stopped playing FM18 and came back to FM17 where the ME look amazingly better.
  15. I can do it as well. Unfortunately in order to succeed I have to forbid any kind of long shots play and low my players attempts from outside area . (Which in kind of boring flanks play in my opinion { All the assists coming from flanks ,Not even 1 from the center } and that's just one strategy of play. Not everyone plays like this in RL). You showed us how much you score from inside the penalty area, which is fine because most of my goals are from inside the area. The question is how much do your players attempt shots outside area per game even tough they asked not to. The other question is why from first place you trying to play the ball into the box? Because that's works better? I do shoot average of 20 shots a game and score at least 2 goals from inaide the area because that's the only way I can score often. High amount of the long shots are wasted oppertunity. And what about defence? Are you concede goals from outside the area often (out of how many chances? )? Are you trying to close down player from shooting? It's threatening you? Your opponents trying to score from outside area a lot or trying to work ball into box as well?
