  1. I hadnt seen people post that, but on the tablet version I forgot to tick for the assistant to complete the OIs, so played a 3rd of the season just ignoring it and I did have better results than when I switched the assistant to complete the instructions... but that could be down to my assistant having poor stats as well! So I would guess that if you have a good assistant tick him to complete this, if not maybe you can just leave it.
  2. I posted on another thread that I was looking at getting another tablet as mine cannot play the match anymore, so when I saw that FMT was available on the Switch I decided to get one, even though I haven't used a controller based machine for years... got it last night and these are my early thoughts: 1. Controller use after about 10 mins is really easy, I would say quicker than having a stylus / finger as its really immersive and very well put together and as I say I havent used a controller for years! 2. Really quick no lag or long loading times, had 3 leagues (Italy, Spain and France) selected and it was flawless. 3. Some options are missing within the preferences but nothing that affects the game, some options are also on differing screen... for example height and weight options are linked to your profile, so if you select you weight in KG or Stone then that's how the players details are displayed in the game. 4. I couldnt really play the 3D match on my tablet, so it was difficult using the old style text for games to determine if my tactic was working etc. so watching the game on the handheld is great... however watching it on my TV is awesome! 5. Graphics are great as well but you would expect that with a pure gaming unit rather than a standard tablet. So having played FMM and FMT on tablets and FM and FMT on the PC, I have to say the Switch is probably not as good as the PC versions, but much better than the Tablet versions. Only thing I would like to see added is the Store, but I would guess that they would only spent time on something like that if this version takes off, which is understandable. So hopefully they will bring FMT next year to the Switch as well. Top job FMT.
  3. Ah ok, couldnt find it last night...
  4. Does anyone know if it is possible to set you assistant to manage OP Instructions on the Switch version? I cannot see the option until the match loads and I click to assign what he thinks, but I want to auto tick this like on the tablet version.
  5. Quiet day at work, reviews look good for FMT on the Switch, PC World just around the corner... can anyone guess what happened next!!! FMT on my TV tonight... might put a holiday in for work tomorrow, although "cough" "cough" I feel like I might have flu coming on
  6. Yeah me too it looks like a good fit, I might gamble and get the Switch rather than a tablet, the ability to play on the go or on my TV has swayed me I think!
  7. I have been looking at a new tablet as mine cannot run the 3d game, but it might be better to get the switch as I can play through my TV... But does anyone know if the Switch version is a one off or will the next version of FMT be available as well ?
  8. Ah shame, I tend to sign youth players and build a team but that means I sometimes fail to meet the club requirements for the first few seasons, so without the no sacking option I wouldnt be able to do that... was thinking about buying a Switch just to play FMT on my TV.
  9. Is the download store available on the Switch version, or are there similar options for no sackings, magic sponge etc?
  10. Great, thanks for the advice... lets see if I can get Real Oviedo to La Liga!!!
  11. Yeah I was looking for a defensive tactic, if I get promoted to La Liga I wont have the money to create a squad to cope with the top teams, so wanted to go a little more defensive... but the counter mentality didnt work as well as Control.
  12. OK my tactic looks like this: 4-4-1-1 GK-D FB-S CD-D CD-D FB-S WM-A RPM-S CM-D WM-A AM-A F9-S I set Control and Structured (sometimes change to Flexible but structured seems to help my defence massively).... TI are: Mixed Passing Retain Possession Exploit Middle (or flanks if the opp have a player in the DM role as it seems to stop my attacks too easily) Drop Deeper (otherwise my defence gets done with balls over the top) Work Ball Into Box Slightly Narrow Get Stuck In (sometimes change to stay on feet against lesser team as less aggression seems to be better) Lower Tempo (sometimes change to Higher) Low Crosses (I have small strikers and AM) Playing as Real Oviedo in Spanish league B, my concern is if I get promoted / play a top team in the Cup I am probably going to struggle with not having a backup / more defensive tactic, but I will test and see what happens.
  13. Just a query, I have a control tactic which is working well suits the players I have and getting good results, so is it possible to just use this Control tactic whether I am the favourite or not, just tweak elements based on the opposition or do I need a differing tactic? At the moment I am changing my focus of attack (wings or middle) and the tempo from Low to High...
  14. This has worked really well for me, I play 4-4-1-1 with a WM and a IVW on the flanks, I tend to play through the centre when as BadanieLuck suggests I am stronger, but if I try and play through the middle when they have 1 or 2 players in the DM role my attack is so blunted I really struggle to both score or keep possession. So I either play down both flanks, or just down the side that has the WM... but even with the IVW playing down the wings rather than through the middle is better, I guess we are taking two players out of the game and getting round the sides, rather than bullying them with numbers through the middle. I tend to change this at the point the games loads and I know they are defo playing with a DM, sometimes the scout reports are wrong with the lineups.
  15. Yeah watching the game you can see they run blindly at times, which is why I liked the idea of the playmaker role being assigned to the AM, I was hoping that they would pass to this role more often as he is a playmaker type and that the Enganche would spot the space out wide, then the Inverted winger would attack the box and the crosses come from FBs, so from an attack point of view I thought I would have space out wide for the FB to cross / passing into the box, inverted winger attacking from deep... but then defensively the FB wont be too far forward so we dont get done on the counter.
