  1. Adding those instructions may help keep right IF and Mezzala further apart. As an added bonus keeps AI defence on their toes if altering instruction in match. Giving it a go.
  2. Yes being doing that. Seems to pile on the pressure. Also changing to WB attack duty both sides and upping def line seems to put pressure on. Perhaps will leave def line if it is raised by mentality any way. thanks for sharing the tactic.
  3. @FuSSDo you have a Hail Mary approach when you are entering final throw of the game and really need to score? interested in thoughts. Beautiful tactic by the way. Plays some lovely stuff.
  4. Thank you for the response. Appreciate it. I am sure you are right. They are working for me but I have to work very hard with them and familiarity is an issue due to the changes. Will maybe concentrate on one and tweak from there. Now working on a 451 on that basis as I find it to be the most balanced formation. thanks again.
  5. I would be grateful for some thoughts on the various tactics versions I am using in the three slots. i always like to have a base tactic, a more aggressive version and a more countering version to suit match situations. Have been using the ones below with some success but would be grateful for a critical eye. Like to keep them simple without many special roles TIs or PIs. first the base tactic Idea is to have a balanced/flexible system with shorter passing to start matches with. No added PIs. More Attacking version with higher pressure. Both wingbacks have cross more often and cross from deep added. Counter version. Defensive formation but relatively aggressive but with a low block. ideally I am working on this to be less narrow and not relying on lone wide men in and out of possession but it works quite well. Two central midfielders have close down more and stay wider to help connect them to the wingbacks. Anchorman has closs down less to counterbalance the other two midfielders. Finally I have a more Defensive football tactic to close out matches or when i am really up against it. No PIs. would be grateful for any views or critiques. thanks
  6. No worries. So do I. Still plenty to learn from well crafted ones. Understood though.
  7. @OJ firstly, many thanks for sharing your thoughts around this tactical system. I always appreciate the effort some members of this community go to with providing their thoughts around how they play the game in order to assist others in different ways of playing this wonderful game. If I was asked to articulate how I wished to play this game and visualise how I would like to see any team I manage playing the game then I would be struggling to describe it any better than you have pointed out in your opening post. It is exactly the way I would like to see my team playing and would commit to that without taking a backward step. I have waited for a post like this for a long time. I would love to set up my current team, Liverpool, in 2027 in this way. I have been on a long-term journeymen save which has seen me with Ipswich, Aston Villa and now Liverpool as my final destination (the team that I support). Up until this point I have used my own 442 in the lower leagues and 4132 more recently successfully. However, time is now for a change and what you have outlined is something I wish to explore in detail and understand as much as I can. As an initial start I would like to set up as you have outlined in your opening posts in order to see how it works as you envisaged and see what I can learn before tinkering around with my own take given personnel available, strengths et cetera. With that in mind, I had a few questions; In your base tactic you talk about the AMR IMF crossing less often which appears to be a hardcoded behaviour anyway. In your extreme variations a couple of specific questions; when you move some players into different positions in the extreme versions do you maintain the PIs that they had in the base version? For example, when the rpm moves into AP support does he still have dribble more and more direct passes? Does the WB support maintain the PIs he had in the base tactic as a full-back? An analysis of the PIs in both extreme versions would be very helpful in my understanding. When you say you go man-to-man on every position for the opposition except for the least technical defender do you do this specifically in the player instructions specifying the opposition position rather than the player? I noticed that the team instructions have slightly different tempos and it would be good to have an understanding of how you deal with tempo in all three tactics. I understand that your preference is to change to balance once you have changed tactic in game. Many thanks again for sharing your thoughts which is much appreciated and I cannot wait to get started on experimenting.
  8. Anyone else missing a horizontal line from each 6 yd box in the 3D match engine? Only started recently!
  9. Agree that this website has a huge amount of useful information. it is a difficult and overwhelming read at times though! in FM18 they gave some great example tactics that were great to build on. Difficult to work out what the best team and player instructions for each style are though from info on the website. Be brilliant if it was laid out in a simpler way. Your tactic looks great though and i have built some good ones myself using the info supplied from guidetofm.
  10. Away from home at the moment but an example would be my HOYD. Regen Kai MacDonald who has determination 15 man Managment 20 motivating 16 jpa 20 jpp 20 judging staff 20 negotiating 16 tactical knowledge 16 all of his coaching attributes are over 15 with attacking and tactical at 20. he is happy to be working with me in German Liga 3 on £1.7k a week. Should be managing Liverpool!
