  1. Strange. There seems to be no problem here. I can't really help unfortunately as the file is hosted by sigames and the format itself is locked by the FM standard :P I linked the 21.4 version here, maybe try this? If it doesn't work, you'd better check with the moderators :| TotalControlV21_4_0.fmf
  2. I know that I have never been able to produce an effective possession-based tactic with that many one-twos and center-pitch domination in FM20. I never tried THIS tactic though, so maybe I just got better at tactics-crafting during the year XD
  3. @StewG Thanks for sharing! I will try those out when I have time. I may see some things to help build a version 21.5 Great work!
  4. With a regista, the dynamic will change a little and I'd change the CM to Roaming playmaker of B2B midfielder. The reason is that normally, your AMC should run around your MC, who should remain relatively stable to provide a sure pivot to your overall formation. With DM as a regista, his forward-mindedness should make HIM become your pivot, but a little bit deeper. That way, you may need your MC have a similar movement to your AMC to make sure your Regista gets the variety of options your MC usually gets with the "default" formation. That's my take on it anyway, I've never tested i
  5. Glad to see some people are using this as a base for their own tweaks! This is what Total Control is all about, a tactical DNA on which you build your own style and tweaks @alp52 Feel free to test this tactic and any tweak you feel necessary! Hope you'll enjoy it!! @jeromethestoneI have nothing new to bring at this point mainly because 21.3 and 21.4 are, to me, as good as a "base tactic" can be. I tweak it regularly, but without much change on the tactical style it brings. Those new tweaks are more about fitting my new players, or countering specific teams. The best I can suggest is
  6. Disclaimer: I just saw that Total Control V21.4 was tested on FM-Arena.com with an absolutely ABYSMAL result. So do not despair if you have bad results, this is not a tactic that seems to fare well at all if left unattended. Confirms my point saying that it is not a plug-n-play tactic at all. Play it for the beauty of it. For actually good results, you MUST tailor your team and adjust things to your reality
  7. Hi Jammy, I've tried the tactic in many leagues and I can confirm that the EPL seem to be the toughest league with this tactic. I'd say that the main point being the huge number of highly physical and fast strikers/wingers in the EPL. Usually have a really hard time in the later stages of the season, when opponents start sitting and waiting for a counter-attack. You could try a couple of those, which seem to work well in this situation: - Drop the defensive line one-notch - Get your IWB --> CWB/WB for little bit more crosses in - Use v3 instead of v4 so you tackle harder. You'
  8. Weirdly, all notifications just... stopped so I couldn't see your reply @ozumbaran. With Barça, I suppose you must have much fun with this tactic! Both IWB to CWB is generally a loved swap from many users. For underlapping/overlapping, I'd say it's worth checking how the game plays out. Remove underlapping for sure. But ticking the overlapping instruction may lead to too many "dead-end" scenarios where you get no other choice but cross the ball from close to the end of the field, which is not an ideal scenario with the kind of teams that fits this playstyle. So look at your games and m
  9. Fantastic! You're more than welcome to share any version you find interesting or efficient! My initial goal was to provide a "template" for a good-looking possession football tactic. I'm actually glad you find it interesting enough to build your own version based on it. Cheers!
  10. Version 21.4.0 is up! I call it the "Gentlemen version". It's not necessarily that much better than V21.3.0, but for those who are tired of having too much yellow cards in their season (I personally hate being that goon team that wins by breaking legs...), this is for you! I've seen a lot of tweaks, adjustments, comments from different users and I can't thank you all enough for the help bringing this playstyle to the next level. What's different?: - Stay on feet + Some PI variations. I've always wanted my team to play clean football, with less cards. First and foremost, because
  11. This is sorcery! Hahahah. Was it against a 10th division youth team in a friendly or did you just humiliate a fellow Ligue 1 manager? Working on it, but for now, many tweaks slightly change the STYLE itself, which I don't want. I'm looking to keep the general playstyle while getting better results. I think I'll post my V3.2 later (not yet V4 since I'm not 100% convinced it's better), but still worked a bit on reducing yellow cards and optimizing set pieces....
  12. Hey buddy! This is uncanny! Feel free to share this thread and tactic as much as you want. The more people get to experience, comment on and tweak this playstyle to their liking the better! For clips and screenshots, I strongly encourage you to check out @RDF Tactics's showcase of this tactic (check higher up in the comments!). He did a breakdown of the tactic that help seeing how it goes! If you want more I can check out how to upload clips... haha I will DM you for more info on my Boston Utd save Cheers!
  13. Thank you so much for the kind words. I am currently working toward a V4 with the following goals in mind: 1. Lower 1v1 occasions from the opponent, without compromising the attacking efficiency. Working with roles, depth and tackling style. 2. Better set pieces: Balance needs to be found between set pieces efficiency and tactical awareness. Currently, the set pieces routine is designed to give little goals, but mainly to maintain structure and possession without giving the opportunity for a counter attack if the set piece fails. The tactic is delicately tuned to maintain an efficient
  14. So cool to see these numbers! Congrats on that awesome season and for your smart tweaks! I've been promoted back-to-back 3 seasons in a row now and I have to say... my squad hasn't followed so I'm having a hard time this year in my league XD At some point, when you're facing teams with players with ~5-6 points more in average in every other characteristics... it's a challenge whatever the tactic you use lol
  15. Hi Fanatikz! StewG summed it up pretty much. Total Control leaves you vulnerable at the back, the philosophy being that if they have no chance, they won't score. But sometimes the team will slip, and your opponent will get a 1v1, which usually translates in a shot on goal (at least)... unless you're facing bad strikers haha. This is unavoidable (for now) since I haven't found a way to control the last third while keeping the defensive line lower. Still, 2 shots, 100% on goal usually comes down to 0 or 1 actual goals. If you control the game, enjoy the show, and score 2-3 yourself, I'd sa
