  1. In press conferences recently when asked if one of the title contenders will win their game I select an answer to the effect of "They should win easily". I am trying to some how play mind games and get them to drop points.

    Does this work? Do you do this? Is there a guide to do this?

  2. Do you ever start a save in non-league... Maybe below vanarama north/south. Get to the championship and decide the premier is going to be too much hassle and losing to be enjoyable? Going from nearly playoffs one year to promotion every 2 year in every league then premier league is not as enjoyable because it's a big difference? Probably just me.

    Something to improve game difficulty.

    I love the game but it feels completely pointless at the moment, it's just a grind when the game is so easy - it's like half of the game is missing. I want to battle against relegation and worry about getting fired - sometimes I want to actually get fired too. I want to build a squad over several seasons and develop players rather than just getting promoted back to back and replacing the entire squad. I'm ok with the idea that taking over a tiny club might lead to you getting stuck in league one or the championship due to lack of finances.

    I just want to feel like I've earned my wins. FM has reached the point where it's difficult to fail, and the joy of winning has gone as a result.

    My concern is that the game will be marketed at the casual players who pick it up at the start of the season, play a couple of seasons as man utd and buy Messi, Mbappe etc, win the champions league and then quit until next year. I'm fine with the game being easy for those casual players, but can we please have a realistic mode where it's actually difficult to climb the leagues, and relegation/being fired is a real possibility?

    Please teach me. I struggle compared to you. I want to understand the game as the more advanced players do. Maybe its players like me that's holding the game back in terms of difficulty but there is zero documentation. A few hints in the UI and relying on forums is not documentation.

  4. I have played with stupidly large shortlists. I have found that when you try and remove a large amount of players (5000+) the game stops you from being able to perform any other actions in the mean time whilst the game worked up to consume 8GB of RAM over 10 minutes wait. I have a high spec PC with 32GB RAM, SSD and a powerful processor. Surely It would be best to perform these tasks it's own thread? It consumes loads of memory whilst performing this task. You might be guessing by now I am a developer (not of games).

    I am talking from the context of FM21. If this has already been improved since FM21 then let me know.

  5. Every FM, when I get a tactic working well I always notice that we eventually start scoring 3 goals in a game. From then on each game we start scoring less and less:

    What exactly are these teams doing as I'm gaining form? Preston was only just relegated from the Championship. Both my goals were lucky but from Chesterfield down we start running out of goals. Chesterfield were mid table, Exeter & Shrewsbury are bottom of the table. MK Dons are in the league below yet we created hardly anything.

     

    Here is the tactic after recent help on the forums:

    Depending on how the game is going, I may change the LOE and DL up 1 or 2 together and sometimes I might have the DLF on Attack and try playing passes into space if they are committing their FB's/WB's forward leaving a possible 3v2 or 2v2.

    Do you have some suggestions for this? I know that streaks end but I would like some ideas to try and resist the drop to zero goals.

  6. When I think of BPD i think of Rio Ferdinand, Pique etc.... I associate this with dribbling forward to trigger a press from the opposition and free up a team mate to receive the ball. This I believe to be the fact with FM's BPD but the whole defense splitting passes thing looks and sounds to me like a hoof like a No-nonsence CD. Am I completely getting this wrong here?

    This tactic was working well in the much lower leagues on FM21. I used to be able to switch between high press or low compact block. The teams in league one seem to expose it. I had success but now i'm doubting it all together.

    I dont seem to be able to create alot of chances and the chance I do create arent very good. very little clear cut chances. Originally I was using it for possession but I seem to be making drastic changes every game now to even create chances.

    Some ideas please.

    You could also bin the DLP and go w a CM + WP(a) on the left with a wingback (s) behind: that could help address your creativity uses

    Would the WP and the DLF not get in eachothers way or be too close together?

    Lots of potential fixes: SK, BPD, a wingback(a) instead of the FB(a), DLP(s), Two strikers on attack, more direct etc.

    Thanks. lots to think about.

    Basically you need two players directly responsible for scoring goals (in your second tactic you have 0) and more players going forward in your tactic. 

    The second screenshot was a mistake (took it after tinkering around). My bad, thought I had removed it.
