  1. Drop the DLP(s) into the 6 position, have one Mez turned into a CM(D) or BWM(D) in the center midfield. That way you have space deep for the playmake to collect and receive the ball and he will push forward ahead of the defensively-minded midfielder. He also provides security by being more deep when you lose possession. The center backs should not be BPD because they will bypass your playmaker. Just make them CD.
  2. You have to be at least 34 years old. Time at club doesn’t matter. I have had a son in my first season. To the OP, you can’t re-load the intake date itself for a son in FM20 since unlike in previous versions, the players are set in advance.
  3. In every FM, I make a crazy Roger Schmidt banzai type tactic. Usually 4-4-2 (or 4-4-2 D6), I score a lot and concede a lot and shoot from distance. This is my aesthetic. No emphasis on possession or passing. Just get the ball, get it forward, shoot at first opportunity, immediately press upon losing possession, repeat.
  4. There is never such a thing as too many attacking duties in FM. In the actual tactics-testing leagues, the most productive tactics are all pants on head ******** tactics that shouldn’t work in real life. Then you have influential con artists who repackage the broken elements of the ME as their own tactical genius and chastise others for just not being Klopp or not having read inverting the pyramid and go down defending how great the ME is.
  5. I don’t think the current match engine is great, but I am having a lot of success. This is the first FM where the Raumdeuter role is working great for me. I play a 4-3-3 (4-1-2-2-1) with a Wide Target Man and Raumdeuter who are both my top scorers. Central forwards don’t seem to work as productively for me in this FM, and experimenting with different ones hasn’t changed the results much because central passing seems nerfed so the wide men end up being the main scorers. They don’t pass to the forward even if he is wide open and the forward never scores easy 1v1s. Tempted to just go striker
  6. Issue: Torpedo Moscow have new stadium design and construction to begin in second quarter of 2020. This should be reflected in the planning stage at the start date of the game. Here is an article showing the details of the stadium, architects, developer, construction date, etc.: https://realty.rbc.ru/news/5cc305c39a7947dcd598a762 Another article: https://archsovet.msk.ru/en/article/city/torpedo-stadium-reconstruction-will-be-designed-by-michel-remon The new stadium is called Torpedo Stadium. I cannot find in-game where it would say this information if it actually was in th
  7. COMPETITION RULES ERROR - RUSSIAN FIRST DIVISION (FNL) There is a rule that says no player can be over the age of 33 in the match squad, but this cannot be possible. This eliminates many of my team's (Torpedo Moscow) real life starters. For instance, here is a match played by Torpedo in the FNL with Ryazantsev and Lebedenko who are 33 and 36 respectively, but both are ineligible due to age in my FM 2020 save as Torpedo. https://www.transfermarkt.us/spielbericht/index/spielbericht/3266569 Maybe it is supposed to be a limit on the number of players over the age of 33?
  8. Flip the triangle and draw back the wings to make 4-1-4-1. A lot more defensive and allows you to rotate in more defensively minded DM and WM. The forward would have to be someone who could also act as either a DLP, F9, or DF though. I have three saves going at the moment; one with 4-1-4-1 as the primary, one with 4-4-1-1 as the primary, and one with 3-5-2 SW WB as the primary. The main difference between the 4-4-1-1 (similar to the 4-2-3-1) and the 4-1-4-1 is that the former has a more specialized emphasis on the AM playmaker and striker and is more attacking whereas the 4-1-4-1 is far mo
  9. I've come to rely on a 4-1-4-1 in the last month or so as my best formation. It's rather universalist formation, with the forward (DF/S), wide midfielder (WM/A), and central midfielder (CM/A) scoring roughly the same amount of goals. The other wide midfielder (WM/S) and advanced playmaker (AP/S) have about half as many goals. It works well, but none of the players are really legendary in their own right. I wanted to know what kinds of formations you guys have used that rely heavily on one prolific goalscorer and really work to exploit the skills of this player to their furthest extent.
  10. In a 4-2-3-1 with an inside forward or two, it seems natural that the AMC would be a playmaker. In a 4-4-1-1, I often see people use the AMC as the scorer (as in DLF + SS). If you're using WMA/S as inside forwards, would you still have the AMC be a playmaker? I've always played 4-2-3-1 as a playmaker and 4-4-1-1 as a scorer, but this thread is giving me second thoughts.
  11. The next match against Paderborn was an absolute demolition. Look at that goal distribution! 47-To-Zero shots!
  12. I have a save going where I use the in-game-editor to make a balanced team with more rounded players with CA ranging from 140-160 specifically to test tactics in the Bundesliga, so this isn't exactly an "in-the-wild" test. Nonetheless, my "serious" tactics have not performed as dominantly in this league as this tactic has in the two matches I've played with it. I don't know what to make of it. Without further ado, I give you: The Hessian Pancake Haus: 1-1-2-3-2-1 Sweeper Wing Back (or alternatively 2-2-3-3, 2-2-3-2-1, 2-5-3, or 4-3-3, etc.) SNIP!
  13. I only say so because the presenters kept calling him a half back. I don't watch a lot of English soccer so I don't know if that is also a more general term for defensive midfielders.
  14. Having two Raumdeuters is a bad idea. Since they don't really contribute to defense and the Trequartista definitely does not contribute to defense, the rest of your team is seriously out-manned. Essentially you have seven players defending against ten. One of the above is enough of a luxury player. Secondly, your formation has too much symmetry and therefore it's too predictable and there won't be good movement between lines. Have one side be more attacking and the other side more supporting/defending in different strata. For instance, in a 4-3-3, you might have a supporting inside forwa
