  1. I'm sure it will be a great game, but this second video was not necessary. You got some big names to try and sell the new features which is cool but the features you are selling are not really worth the time it took me to watch that. This is just my personal opinion but deadline day is nothing more than a headache on the game and by far the one day I loathe every season. So the fact that it has now been expanded upon and will more than likely be even more drawn out, is annoying. And then theres the staff meetings which seems okay but when I think of HEADLINE features I wouldn't even have considered this as one. Overall I thought the video had way too much build up and way too much talking, 15 minutes to showcase two, with all due respect, mediocre features. That being said I still have high hopes for the match engine and the new animations. I think it will be very good. I also hope they release a lot of smaller features that is able to cancel out the disappointment I feel after video number 2.
  2. The obvious initial observation is too many attacking duties while playing on attacking mentality. Very risky. Especially against an inter team who is probably good enough to sit back and wait for a chance to counter. Edit: just saw you used downloaded tactics also, Knapp usually makes tactics for teams with different skill sets so this tactic looks like one only the top teams in the world should be using.
  3. Reading through this thread brought me back to my FM18 save where I seemed to recall playing a 3-1-6 in possession and was very successful. After doing some digging I found one of the tactics I used. This was the start of a truly dominate era where I went invincible one season and won multiple leagues and champions leagues. After reading this thread, reminiscing on my past successes and playing this way before it was cool, I am definitely going to play this way again as it was one of my favorite saves of all time.
  4. 2-1-7 shape is very interesting and one I been thinking about trying now I seen you have success with it. Although I would like to do a 4-2-4 diamond with a dmc and amc. Very risky and difficult to accomplish but with the right players as you have demonstrated, it’s possible. Well done winning every known trophy with essentially the same core for 12 straight years. I’ve just taken over man United in 2030 and the board have demanded I use the youth facilities for players so this thread has been very inspirational and for that reason I’m going to be developing and recruiting complete players through the academy.
  5. That’s some lineup with PSG. I thought the front four were great but the central midfield pairing and defense is just as good lol. Curious about what you said earlier in regards to mbappe role. How different was his goal record after you switched from advanced forward to complete forward? And at what point did you decide to make the switch? 4-2-4 is my favorite formation and this year for whatever reason I am having difficulty getting a sole striker to score the majority of the goals.
  6. Another question, where would i find the color for my players name on this screen? It clashes with the background.
  7. Been using this skin and loving it but I have a question about how to change the colors of the tactic screen. How would i go about changing the color of the rectangles that have the position role selected? (currently its white) I would like to have it dark like the default FM skin if possible.
  8. Damn, it’s a shame because I truly believe this is the best fm ever made but since I play long term saves this “bug” is a major issue for me. I haven’t played since I discovered this was happening and I’m honestly not in any rush to play again I just pray SI can figure out a proper fix for this issue within the next few months.
  9. I was having an issue that nations I didn’t load when I started a new save didn’t generate any new gens at all. USA, Serbia, Croatia, Poland to name a few.
  10. Are we seeing major nations that weren’t loaded generating new gens? Has anyone tested that yet?
  11. Good job, you laid this out very well. This is a major issue for me and as such I have paused my save until there is a definitive fix for it. I have major nations generating zero newgens since the start of the save and since I always play my saves 10+ years, this is game breaking. Hopefully we get a fix soon.
  12. The player count dropped from 88k to 86k. I have 27 playable leagues loaded. Before I started the save, I loaded all international players from North america, south america, asia and africa. So the total player count when I started was actually higher than 88k but I can't remember an exact number. I only noticed this was happening after discovering the various threads.
  13. I holidayed one season in my current save to see what would happen and countries I didn’t load like Croatia, USA, Denmark, and Greece produced zero newgens. My total player count dropped by 2k also.
  14. I holidayed the 2026-2027 season after the update to see and nations like Croatia, Serbia, USA, Denmark, Greece, etc are still not bringing in youth players to any clubs at all and haven't since the start of the save game. These nations are not playable, but I figured they would generate some players. My total player count also dropped by 2k.
  15. I don't know if it is or isn't that's why im asking. Have heard nothing about this and never seen the staff roles grayed out like that before.
  16. In the year 2026 and just found Sarri was no longer a manager. This is a bug right? He has several staff roles that are grayed out.
  17. No you can’t delete league rules with the in game editor.
  18. Yeah, this is especially irritating because this is my preferred way to view a player's attributes and it looks a mess.
  19. I had originally posted this for the beta and it hasn't been fixed. I'm on full screen 5k iMac. Player face is small in proportion to the rest of the screen and the 'attacking' text for the polygraph is not visible.
  20. Yes I can see what positions you used, thanks. It’s a tactic I’d expect to find on the tactic sharing forum which I can already see you spend some time on. But again I don’t care how people play the game and what tactics they use just don’t use a clear exploit tactic and then say the game is easy...
  21. The results are impressive, but honestly all this proves to me is that you know how to exploit the match engine. The 442 tactic resembles one I've seen knap make in the past and this isn't exactly my idea of what a well-balanced tactic looks like. I have no problem if you want to make tactics like this and play the game how you want, but don't come onto the forums and say the game is too easy because you figured out a way to exploit the match engine. I don't understand what point you're trying to make.
  22. Exactly and squad happiness is a large part of this game. If you took over Everton with Sunday league rep I doubt you’d have such positive results because your players wouldn’t believe in you. It was just a theory that maybe people are being so successful because their reputation is greater than the club they are managing. the fm20 beta seemed easier to me than the official release version so let’s wait and see what happens.
