  1. Okay, fair enough. I appreciate your willingness to contribute with content.
  2. I don't think people understand concepts like "core style", "number eight water carrier", etc. Also, you can't choose fluidity anymore. The game sets it for you.
  3. Yeah, but there are also different types of two-striker systems, and it is always either a creator-scorer combo, or a tall-fast combo (which it most often the same, I guess). There are probably more possibilities, but I can't really think of any at the moment.
  4. This is really good info and really should be made more clear in the game. Also, it could be a mini-guide in this forum section. What about one striker systems? He could be a creator, and the inside forwards could be scorers. Or a winger could be a creator... Has anyone worked out how to categorize it all, like you did with 2 stiker combo? Great example! I fully agree with your thinking here. And I often feel this kind of balancing is overlooked, at least based on the questions on this forum. Hope more people have seen this.
  5. One more question; if you would prioritize attacking style, how low could you go with positioning, bravery, strength, tackling...? Would 12 be too low for Serie A / EPL / La Liga?
  6. Yes, I understand that, but I mean out of these, which ones do you see as more important than the others?
  7. Say you manage a mid-level team in a strong division, like for example U.S. Sassuolo Calcio. You have to sign a good Box to Box Midfielder, but you obviously cannot afford, nor attract the kind of player say Juventus could sign. What attributes would you look for, and why?
  8. I am doing a long term save, outside of the "big five" leagues, where I try to reshape a solid club into a great one. The general plan is to build my team around 4-2-3-1 formation, focusing heavily on our own talent. It is not really convenient for me to post screenshots right now, but roles go like this: GK: Goalkeeper (Defend) DR: Full Back (Support) DC: Central Defender (Defend) DC: Central Defender (Defend) DR: Full Back (Support) MC: Ball Winning Midfielder (Defend) MC: Deep Lying Playmaker (Support) AMR: Inside Forward (Support)
  9. Rashidi, please update this if you can. This could be one of the best threads of all time.
  10. What do you think about Deep Lying Playmakers with Vision, Passing, Technique, etc, but with very low Flair?
  11. If I understood correctly, higher technique means more moves you can pull off. So players with low technique won't be able perform something they envisioned.
  12. Back in the day I was a novice FM player, being overwhelmed with the game, I used external tools like FMRTE and FM Scout to determine player's current ability. While CA is naturally a good indication of how good a player is, I soon learnt that it is not be all and end all, that attribute distribution is very important, and that a player with significantly lower CA and a good attribute distribution for a certain role can perform much better than a player with high CA but a flawed distribution. The first time I noticed that was when I found a five star potential CD with 1 Balance. Yeah, tha
  13. My inside forward has "arrives late into opposition area" PPM. I would like him to be a main attacking threat, so I tried to get him to unlearn that. However my coaches think it "adds to his game". I can't see how would IFa want that trait. Am I missing something?
  14. No, Suso is top class for Milan. He can get you 25 goals/season no problem. Since he is a left footed AMR, I would use him as an IF, and rotate Cutrone/Piatek as a DLFa. Castillejo is also left footed, so he could be used as a AML Winger, to provide width, and Paqueta could be a playmaker in AMC or MC...
  15. A little update: I played a lot since the last post. I couldn't get 4-2-3-1 to work. It wasn't all bad, we were winning quite a few games, but it was mostly due to having the best squad, rather than the best setup. I moved Almada (loan) and Everton (transfer), and went back to 4-1-2-2-1. In short, it works better. So my current plan is to refine the current setup and to learn more about the two formations in general. I will be posting some stuff in the next few days, so if anyone is interested to either look at Gremio, or to look at my tactical evolution, you are welcome to part
