  1. I never even bother press conferences, just let my AM speak.. but I agree.. I have better things to do
  2. Seconded that.. I felt disappointed when I saw FM 17 has not even a single improvement in tactical department.. I think they must do improvements with the next version, they can't really let it go.. we'll see it though... I will just hold on before buying FM 18.
  3. Did I actually sounded antagonistic? I was just pointing out the facts to you, since you are sounding like there is nothing wrong with it.
  4. It wont be overkill and for your info AT.Madrid usually plays like that, maybe you should research more before jumping in the bandwagon.. Even Nic Madden acknowledged this a ME issue so and they will improve it...
  5. Also there was huge discussion about this nvm,
  6. Like I've said before.. the problem lies when playing against narrow tactic opposition, why should they just stay alone in the wide areas? like I have shown at the first pic on OP.. whether you play wide/narrow they will always defend the same in FM and that is unrealistic tbf. Also there was huge discussion about this nvm,
  7. So that makes them to not defend? their job isn't just to stay wide all the time, they need to contribute in such case needed to form a solid defense, so It is just poorly implemented in this version.
  8. @Rashidi not only 4-4-2, but any tactic that contains wingers, they will always/mostly stay wide..
  9. It was AI using 4-4-2.. actually they changed to 4-4-1-1 in the late stages, so that's why there is only one striker upfront and no.7 playing as AMC. I don't have access to FM atm but one of my defenders just played a long ball, so F9 (Sornoza) was running to the ball and so one of the CM for palace was marking him as you can see only the no.18 from Palace is left in the CM strata.. so I guess it was more of CM attack and CM defend. I was using a structured team shape and the striker was AF, that's why they are miles apart, can't tell it for the Palace case, as I don't know what they used.
  10. I've liked this version so far, and apart from being FM'ed oftenly ( 1 shot/1 goal for AI) - I have got 1000+ hours in to the game so far.. as usual with the previous ones. The problem is, with this years version it is all about setting a narrow tactic, then you will dominate most of the matches (having a lot of possession) - then there is a narrow tactic coupled with a strikerless, which will even dominate more.. i'm not overly saying you can't dominate tactics with wingers but I haven't really dominated that much in a tactic containing wingers compared to narrow ones after trying so many tactics and combinations, why this? I think the problem must be wingers and wide midfielders staying too wide... I also find that CM's will even stay too close to each other most of the time, not sure why. Normally in 4-4-2 it should look like this -----------W-------CM-------CM------W----------- but it looks like this --W----------------CM---CM-----------------W-- A big gap between the CMs and Wingers and thus an opposition with narrow tactic will dominate and retain the ball for a lot because of that. This pic - Leeds united playing a narrow 4-1-3-2 and Crystal playing 4-4-2 --- Just look at Zaha and Poulsen, that is hell of a big gap.. That is it then, I just wish this would be fixed in FM 18, I won't go far to say it is gamebreaking issue, however it is an issue that needs to be addressed.
  11. I have been playing Motorsport Manager, and I liked how you can select your own sponsorship and has given criteria you need to met to be given certain amount, why we don't have one in FM ? it will be nice to have it, LIKE - finish x above to get certain amount, win certain games, money given per win e.t.c..
  12. I can do 1 season a day.. I don't do stuff like press conferences and bother about media.. in total it will take 6 hours, but I split it into when I am not doing work and in the night. Tactics, transfers and player development that is all I focus on, then play the matches on only commentary fast.
  13. Try changing default height which is 328 to lower value <!-- Vitrex World map marker --> <container class="subsection_box" appearance="boxes/club/paper5" minimum_height="150" priority="2" default_height="328">
