  1. Thank you for this reply, as this is the most interesting. I helped with the design of the whole tactics revamp this year and the idea of the tactical styles is to give the user something to help build their football philosophy, a base. I am very happy that you are all using the tactic and you are enjoying the game, however remember that this is the foundation of your footballing philosophy and you can and sometimes should make tweaks to it to suit the players at your disposal. The overall point of the tactical styles and the whole revamp as a whole is to help educate our fans regarding tactics and move closer to the modern day football manager. Cheers, Nic
  2. As stated above, the ME is very balanced in terms of yellow and red cards, it is actually lower than real life levels throughout the whole game, so we will not be re balancing this. Please review your tactical instructions, role distribution, player attributes and player traits of your players, as if your team is getting too many fouls or cards, then your style needs to be adjusted to suit. Cheers, Nic
  3. This has been fixed in ME1914 that has just been released with the full game. Please can you report asap if this happens again or occurs in your save. Thank you to all and good luck with your saves Cheers, Nic
  4. Thank you all in this thread for being very pro-active and reporting on the forums, this is the reason we have the forums and we really do appreciate your help and investigation, I have merged all of your posts together in this one thread to keep all of the information contained. This bug is a high priority issue and it will be addressed, so thank you for your examples and you do not need to post anymore, it is under review with our Match Development Team. Again, I am sorry that you encountered this issue and I really hope that you can continue to enjoy your saves in the meantime, whilst this issue is under investigation. Cheers, Nic
  5. Thanks for your feedback @pauly15, I can see you are very passionate about the game and the ME. Some of the images you have shared above tell a different story from my point of view, however everyone analysis's football differently, which is why it is the beautiful game. 1, The screenshots are intercepted passes, which proves to me that players in the latest ME are now better at intercepting passes (we have improved this intentionally, as it is a form of defending) 2. The screenshots show throw'in's and goal kicks, as well as clearances, so I don't see how these are valid with the title of your post in my opinion. 3. The total of intercepted passes that you claim was better (ME1900) and the (ME1913) of the screenshot at the bottom is actually similar numbers (50 vs 55). With that in mind, if you could please provide examples and lots of them, with specific times of where you feel that the player on the ball has better options around him and is playing the ball directly against the team instructions consistently, then please provide them, so that we can investigate fully and further. Cheers, Nic
  6. Can you all please go into the Tactics > Set Pieces Panel. Can you Select on every routine that you have made and can you please then select the "Routine" drop down and can you select the button "Reset to Default". We made some changes to Set Pieces in the latest update and I believe that the game maybe using your older setting and routine, not the new changes that we have implemented, as this issue above is something we found internally and fixed, though it may need your Routine to be reset to default for it to work correctly. I would really appreciate your feedback and if this works. Please let us know. If it does not know, please can you provide a PKM and a save from before the match for us to investigate further. Cheers, Nic
  7. Glad that it helped, thank you for your reply. I have passed this onto our UI team to get this logged, so thank you for providing this info. Cheers, Nic
  8. Thanks for the update here. 1 - Is this for every formation? If you could provide a save game to show this, it will be great. 2 - Throw'In's are only set in positions that are area's for an attacking "Long Throw". If you've got examples of when the team should be using a long throw and do not use your set up then please let me know and provide a save from before the match and a PKM please. Cheers, Nic
  9. Formations are set by the Research Team for every AI Manager in the game, so this is not a Match Engine issue. Please can you upload examples in the relevant Research Forums and Threads if you feel that the team IRL do not play that formation, however please back it up with evidence so that this will help the research team. Cheers, Nic
  10. Thank you @Diego D10S, that is great feedback and good to here I hope you keep enjoying your save and FM19. Cheers, Nic
  11. Overall in our Match Stats, the number of Yellow Cards are actually slightly lower than real life figures, so tuning this down is not something that we should be committing to at this time. Red Cards are also lower than IRL as well and it is at a well balanced level overall. Cheers, Nic
  12. Thanks for your reply here Teo3434, this is very useful. I've passed the routine info onto our UI team to review this and get this logged internally. Please report the loan issue in the Transfers and Contracts forum, where the gameplay team can help you Cheers, Nic
  13. Sorry, Teo3434, however one of the issues is not a Match issue, so can you please log this in the relevant forum area please. In terms of the Set Pieces, what is the issue exactly? That the routine is called routine 1? Or that you cannot add new routines? Any steps to reproduce this issue or screenshots would be very helpful. Cheers, Nic
  14. Good Afternoon Miguelinho, Xeewaj Q. & Bracken Can you all please try something for me, as I feel that this maybe will resolve your issue, so I would appreciate if you could all carry out a little test with Set Pieces that I think maybe the cause of your issue. Please can you go into the Tactics > Set Pieces Panel. Can you Select on every routine that you have made and can you please then select the "Routine" drop down and can you select the button "Reset to Default". We made some changes to Set Pieces in the latest update and I believe that the game maybe using your older setting and routine, not the new changes that we have implemented, as this issue above is something we found internally and fixed, though it may need your Routine to be reset to default for it to work correctly. I would really appreciate your feedback and if this works. Please let us know. I hope you continue to enjoy the game and enjoy your save Cheers, Nic
