  1. Valencia might be a thing, to enjoy the talents of Yi Kang-In.
  2. It is good that they are working on it. I'd even accept delays in release if it meant a better game.
  3. Any mention of set piece changes, szch as a unified set piece taker list regardless of formation?
  4. Oh, okay. I tend to focus only on position-specific requirements when I try to play the game, as the combined option tends to lead to a filter too narrow.
  5. I'm not sure if this question might warrant its own thread, but... does club DNA mean a set of required attributes shared by all positions, or would position-specific requirements also count?
  6. The OP does lead me to an important question: how important is the ability to motivate players and have their respect (starting manager experience affects this?) when compared to tactics?
  7. So, what should I do with 16 or 17 year-olds that are in no way ready for first team, but have potential? Wait until they turn at least 18, and send them to the main team to be mentored, or...? A more straight-forward version of the above: does mentoring matter more than the quality of youth training?
  8. The game's suggestions, but I check over attribute ratings, and it usually ends up being consistent with the role suitability. I admit that certain players may be very versatile, and the role they are assigned is a matter of tactical tweaking, but as the first pick when creating a tactic, I usually give them their very best role, for starters. This is what I did for the MCR. He's a BWM-D, but could be changed to maybe a CAR.
  9. The idea for a DLP-S was: Nuri Sahin has intelligence all over the place, but can't do the dirty work. So, he stays in place mostly, and makes interceptions with his mental stats, and is allowed to be creative with the ball. He also likes to switch the ball to the other flank. I could move him into the midfield, and play a 4-3-1-2. The roles of the wide defenders were dictated by their ability: the LB is great defensively and has excellent crossing even from deep, but he's slower than the RB, who isn't that good at tackling, or certain mentals. Should the defensive minded MC be switched to the left, anyway? He (Bargfrede) is the best I have for Tackling, Work Rate, Bravery etc, I'm looking to buy 1 more such player, but Bargfrede is the main "butcher". I have no Target Men in the team. Pizarro could be either a DLF or a Poacher, and it fits well with his age. I want him chained to the penalty box, and receiving crosses. I will mention one alternative option: I have a Libero-capable CB. Moisander has excellent mentals. Provided I buy more CB-s, is wingback 3-4-1-2 a good idea?
  10. Some time ago, I got an urge to try a savve with Werder Bremen. In the old times, I quite liked their team, and the current roster is fairly interesting. Looking at Team Report and Comparison screens, several problems became obvious: - the team are poor tacklers and markers, overall. - Work Rate and Bravery are below average, as well. -Strength and Pace/Acceleration are also lacking, other than the right sided players (Rashica, Gebre-Selassie, Beijmo) On the upside: - the team has many intelligent players, even in the defense (Anticipation, Composure, Decisions, Positioning). - technical ability is good, from regular Passing, to Crossing and set pieces. -Teamwork and Leadership are good. The roster is affected by several long-term injuries, in particular to players who would play on the wings. I have only one pair of healthy wide players in the midfield. I might create a tactic for them, as they are good players. I have a large-ish number of strikers, though. I am not set on the formation being a diamond necessarily, but it should feature 2 strikers. All in all, I have this idea: I want my team to be able to suffocate the game by employing defensive possession football when coming up against the better Bundesliga sides. Without the ball, I want the team to stand off, and not attempt to close down like crazy as a unit. Certain players may be allowed to be aggressive (Bargfrede), but for most others, it would be better to hold position and be ready to intercept an opposition's pass. When we have the ball, I would like the midfield to draw in opposition away from the wings, allowing for some overlapping runs and crosses. Through balls by the playmakers are also something I see as viable. Please leave your feedback on the instructions and role selection. The mentality was set to Positive for the first friendly, but in the Bundesliga, I expect to play Cautious or even lower.
  11. I got defenders with generally subpar Strength and Jumping Reach, and thus don't want to invite crosses in. The team is also ill-suited to energetic pressing- does that mean a high D-line is bad? I intend to play a stand-off defense of sorts, relying on keeping shape and making interceptions, but not too close to my goal.
  12. To what extent can great mentals (Anticipation, Decisions, Concentration, Positioning) replace insufficient Acceleration in centre backs? In the context of wanting to play a high line.
  13. Thinking of trying Bremen, but struggling to make sense of the team's strengths and weaknesses. Intelligent, but not hard-working or strong physically. Can't go with a deep defense, but the centre backs seem too slow for a high line. Preset tactical ideas are a poor fit for this team. At least playing youngsters isn't a philosophy I'll struggle with.
  14. In my quest to improve the effectiveness of training through coach allocation, I've faced situation where I have to figure out which of the several squads usually present at a club (Main, Reserve( or Club II), U21/U19...) train together, and thus benefit from hiring coaches not only for the main squad, but for some of the others. If this is confusing, I'll give an example: I loaded a Werder Bremen save. They have the main squad, but also Werder Bremen II, the U21 and U19. My main coaches are overloaded, and I need to find out if any of the other squads' coaching slots could be used to balance the workload?
  15. Is there a practical difference when a scout states that a player is "unlikely to gain a work permit", and "unlikely to gain a work permit even after an appeal"? As in, does the first note mean that an appeal has a chance of success?
