  1. On page 77 the below has been added, TFF has indicated he isn't going to add a download we would have to do it ourselves : ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Just for you guys The Cerber V4 with removing "Short Passing" PI from the WBL/WBR positions and the new attacking free-kick setup Tell me if i have forgot something or do something wrong and sorry for my english... :P (FM20) Cerber
  2. I feel your pain, I was at Man Utd and Real Madrid, over a few seasons after joining the clubs with only £20-30 million in the bank I had helped them get up to over £500 million via player sales, good buys, competition money due to successes, etc. Yet every time they tried to negotiate a new contract with me it was far lower than most players were on and no flexibility was given to changing the amount offered even by the smallest of margins (Real Madrid refused me even a £1 increase in salary and no % increase per year even though we were the richest club in the world). I pretty much follow
  3. Yeah trying to immerse yourself in the game when you are by and far the most successful manager around yet your current team offers you a contract no-where near acceptable with no negotiation flexibility (then when you leave they appoint someone with a far worse record on more than you were on) or a new club approach you and again offer you a wage that isn't to the standard you are at but give no negotiation flexibility and then again appoint someone with a far worse record but on more money than they ever offered you. I appreciate it isn't a gamebreaker for most but the immersion over a
  4. No negotiation allowed for manager contracts. The above is small but a bug bear for me. I am one of the most successful managers in my game winning numerous trophies with numerous teams. Yet every time my existing team or a new club wants to negotiate a contract i find there is hardly any movement at all from what they originally offer. The wage is rarely if ever increased, trying to add extra clauses are never agreed, and shortening the length of the contract (to minimise the clubs financial risk) or adding a % increase per year reduces the wage they offer drastically.
  5. I'm finding Cerber v3 and Shield Wall v1 very effective at the moment. It might be that as time has gone and I have now been promoted to Man Utd manager it has got easier due to the better players I have but I do feel these two tactics with the current ME offer a really good return (currently with MUFC got a 77% win ratio and coming towards the end of the season). I would say that Fury v1 is very hit and miss for me though. I normally seem to increase the likelihood of conceding far higher than scoring so I use it rarely and only if desperate. Thanks for all the work TFF as thi
  6. Got to say for me Raider v4 from the start, Phoenix v4 if behind, and time wasting tactic if ahead was just starting to give me good results. Think I'm gong to stay with the above as before that my results were pants! Be interesting to see the new tactics and how they fare though.
  7. Spurs are now 15th, onwards and upwards! Using Raider v4 and better results and feel of a game so far.
  8. TFF are you absolutely sure Punisher/Pyromancer are the best ranked? I've used your tactics for the last few years and although this FM version has been very up and down with consistency of tactics I've managed to overachieve with the teams I have managed. Destroyer v3 was a decent tactic and worked relatively well but as mentioned before Punisher v1 has been absolutely terrible for my Spurs team (W1, D7, L7). My team fits the tactics reasonably well and its not a bad squad but I find with Punisher v1 I might have 8 or 9 shots per game whereas with Destroyer v3 it was 15-25+. May
  9. I'm finding Punisher and all the new tactics pants for me. I'm Spurs and in the relegation zone!
  10. Personally I can't use Destroyer v1 as it just wasn't working at all for me so I've come off the beta and back with raptor v4 which has decent (ish) results for me. Definitely finding this version much more difficult to find any rhythm or consistency and I think from what i have seen it is more about 'over-achieving' rather than 'demolishing' teams/leagues you are in. Hope any new versions are able to show a bit more consistency especially if you aren't one of the big teams.
  11. Hi TFF I had very good results with Raptor with each version when released in general but did struggle a bit away from home and had patches where my form was a bit dodgy. Only played the last few games with Raptor v4, won 3 and lost 1 and got Derby promoted from the Championship in 2020/21 as runners up when predicted to finish 11th and finished 15th the season before. Early days with v4 but it did seem better to me so thanks again for all your work on the tactics and making it easier for people like me to enjoy the game.
  12. Just a quick update to say that Raptor for me is the closest I have come on FM20 to Gladiator that you had for FM19 TFF results wise. It has given me a bit more love for FM20 as the tactic is great and I am having some very good results overall (9 games into the Championship and 1st with Derby County after finishing 15th season before). Other thing I would say is that this tactic, unlike all others I tried, actually gets the strikers scoring! Thanks TFF.
  13. I think the tactics tables can be very misleading, I used the FM Base table and the top two tactics on there and both were very disappointing whereas (so far) using Raptor (and Zeus v5 before it) I have had far better results.
  14. Cheers mate played Zeus for a few games with decent results but now switched to Raptor for last game of season as Derby and we beat Birmingham City 4-0 away. Gonna keep with Raptor and hope it gives me some enjoyment and some decent success or at least over achievement!
  15. Hi TFF Just wanted to say that you made FM19 for me and I loved the Gladiator tactic as I had about a 70% win ratio with it with a variety of teams. I haven't found any tactic for FM20 that is anywhere near effective but I'm gonna give Zeus a try and hope it makes this game a bit more playable for me. In relation to the 'controversy' I can only make my own personal comments which are that you made a mistake, you acknowledged it, hopefully have learnt from it and we all move on. No-one died and this world should be about forgiveness and a measured response which from SI appear
  16. I would suggest, if it buffers or lags, to tone down the graphics detail level. My PC is old and the game always pre-sets the graphics ability too high but if I change it to 'medium' the game in 3D flows better without the niggling lags/glitches.
  17. I play this way now, really lost my love of the game for a while and the best way I could get back into it was to go 'old school' when I loved the game. For me the benefits are: Avoids the 3d ME which is still very poor for a professional game and very unrealistic. Saves time. Allows imagination to be used. I have the speed on 'faster' and it goes quite quick but still gives me enough time to 'imagine' the passage of play.
  18. I can only go on my experience but probably since the last 2 versions of the game I now upload tactics and don't bother creating them myself. Mainly this is due to time constraints as before I always used my own tactics and didn't have to put an awful amount of time into them for them to work reasonably well but now it seems you need to be awfully dedicated and precise to win games. For me the balance between 'gameability' and 'realism' is getting a bit lost in the series as I want realism but not to the degree that I have to have a vast amount of tactical knowledge to play the game and
  19. It's important people share their experiences and frustrations, to the OP I can understand some of what it feels you are trying to portray as effectively the game is the same. I think my frustrations are more that rather than building the game up and tweaking it to further improve it the changes they make year on year at times decrease the appeal of the game or they change aspects that are superfluous to the experience and overlook far bigger problems. I don't mind minor changes if they are improving a core function but the usual '200 changes this year' really is more a marketing ploy than a
  20. Just my opinion but this is another aspect of SI failing to understand that this is a game and there is only so much 'realism' you can put into it without affecting the 'gamers' experience. Why not simply let the user who brought the game decide whether they want to mass scout or not? As has previously been noted several times all the change has done is make it more time consuming to mass scout not stopped it. I partly understand why SI would want to 'discourage it' but if they took feedback on board before and changed it maybe they need to consider taking feedback on board again and ch

    I've never really used the 'go on holiday' feature of the game but as the years have gone by and my time has become more limited/the game has a lot of micro managing in it I decided recently that the parts I really enjoy of the game are the transfer windows and the beginning/end of season. Due to this I thought for nearly the first time I would use the holiday feature to get through the parts of the season that I don't enjoy as much. Due to using this feature I just wanted to recommend a new feature to be added that appears to not be there automatically 'come back from holiday if offered
