    Gengenpressing too good?

    I've played 3 seasons with Lazio. I'm in april of the 3rd season. Liverpool won the last 2 CL I went to the final of CL last year, lost against Liverpool In a month i will play the second CL final in a row...against Liverpool, third in a row for them. I'm champion in Serie A, 92 pts in 35 games.... The last CL final i've lost against Liverpool is the only CL game ive lost for the past 2 seasons We both use Gegenpress...and we both dominate the world.... Clearly unrealistic, one dimensional and ME bug...
  2. It depends on what SI made with the "libero". If its the playmaking defender ive described its what you looking for, its a great new feature but the name libero is false. But thats not the first time SI messed up with the names of its features. If its a BPD who plays higher up on the pitch, as a moderator told me before, its useless and very risky in transition phases
  3. you're telling us that changes in tactics creator are complex, that they requires revamping ME and AI or it wont work suggesting that we cant ask for changes just like that. Bringing that in that conversation is weird, buy anyway... I've read a little bit more of the posts on this thread and i made my opinion : nothing new in tactics, and i realize, reading the other posts before today that i'm clearly not the only one thinking that
  4. So you're telling us that there's noting new in FM19 tactics, just cosmetics ?
  5. Having a new role for CB : playmaking defender. He attract the ball and push the midfield up front as he takes responsibility for the restart of play, keeping the ball, looking for a good pass as the midfield spread out. It allows you to have one more men to build up your attacks as the deep lying playmaker can be higher, every man on midfield is a solution of pass and the "first build-up pass" is the responsibility of the playmaking defender. Ask guardiola, he invented it he always give the responsibility of the "first build up pass" to one of his central defenders and tells his midfielders to spread out to occupy space. That why its very hard to press high against guardiola . But this new role needs to change the behavior of his teammates, not espacially his behavoir, as the BPD is already there. It needs to makes players pass him the ball and to midfield spread out to offer passing solutions higher up on the pitch Thats a new feature !!
  6. Glad to see I'm not the only one to be skeptical about tactics revamp. But need to say that a great job has been made regarding training this year
  7. Totally agree with you. More players are a good thing for everyone, and if making thing easier can brings some more people to play fm i would be very happy. To be honest i think that the critics and the press don't salute FM as it should be. I play video games for decades and FM is deeper than 99% of the recent games. It reminds me the old games that you have to play 200 hours to finish. Learning all the mechanics, failing hundreds of times But don't forget your loyal players that have spent 200h on every iteration. Make the game more casual, easy to understand is good for everyone as i said before but not sufficient to please the guys that bought every game you released And i know that the new options will be a huge update for a lot of players, but i can't honestly say that its new and a big revamp, not after spending hours tweaking things up in fm18, losing games, raging against ME to finally understand whats needs to be done in tactics module to achieve styles of play and making my team do what i want them to do. But i clearly understand why the game needs to be more casual, more clear and i see the benefits of it for everyone, even me : more players = more money = more resources to develop new features in future
  8. I say it since the beginning, fm18 tactics module is very complex, and you can do pretty much everything but not directly. you dont have the option, the slider to do that. But tweaking some of the others options you can indirectly set for example the defensive width or a lot of other things As for the flexibility that fm19 brings. To do what ? have a conservative line of defence with an agressive attacking unit ? Set the tempo, the passing, use the right roles. And team shape allows you to split mentalities between players. Ok i stop because i love fm19 but that just good marketing that youre doing right now. (I'm telling this with a smile on my face fyi )
  9. Segundo volante : tremendous new feature carrilero, mezzala same Look for underlap : very interesting "Links" between wingbacks and wingers, the two CBs, etc... and links that tighten with time : really a great addition i love it That's what i call new features. Again i dont blame Si as theyve done so much great work last years that i can understand how hard is it to bring something new this year
  10. Defensive width is totally dependent of the attacking shape of the opponent. The only situation were you can ignore the wingers and get as narrow as possible is when you park the bus, i give you that. Again not a thing that will change all the game approach as its available for only one tactical style. But that's not the point, i will buy the game, i love this game, SI made a fantastic job. But don't fool me, the game become more and more casual, new features are harder to find as many things have been done already (especially in tactics) and this year tactics revamp announcement is a clear example of that. Despite that, fm19 will be the best management game as a result of years of great work and i will play it for hundreds of hours And dont worry about my mistakes, i quit careers because of the ease i have to win almost every game after 4 or 5 seasons
  11. I spoke about defensive width. I posted something about that earlier in this thread
  12. Totally agree! If its a modernized role like bonucci or pique. A CB who tends to participate to the building, who can be that deep lying playmaker it can be very interesting. But the only thing that can be new infm19 is that this guy "attracts" the ball like the playmaker. In terms of positioning, passing, pressing and risk taking everything was tweakable in fm18
  13. Not to mention were talking only about the libero but i talk about the fact that everything SI have done in fm19 tactics was implemented in fm18, just harder to understand, to set and to be honest i dont want to speak about a dead football role for hours
  14. And you can give the others two CBS the limited CB role, forcing them to play the nearest passing solution, give the team the play out of defense instructions and then, with the relations between all the options youll have the center CB that will receive all the balls from the other 2 CBS reinforcing that "playmaker" role that you can expect from a libero
  15. youre right! But again, not without the other 2 CBS who follow the move. You can't have the central CB playing higher the the other 2. Imagine how you'll be punished in transitions, the space you left in the center behind him. Not a single team play like that. You can have a sort of playmaker in the center of a 3 men defense...by setting a high defensive line (they'll support midfield) and give the one in the center the ball playing defender role and you can even reinforce that by training him with the right PPM
