TL;DR. Promoted a team from 2nd to 1st divison in my first year and in my second year im 2nd-3rd on the table 28 matches into the season. Is my tactic bugged or what is going on ? I can provide any screenshots of my game that you fm experts need.
Hello ! I'm a fan of football manager since the days Ronaldinho was in PSG. Have more than fair share of played time in the game. I'm not a specialist but I don't consider myself a noob or a rookie too.
A few days ago I started a save with FC Sochaux Montbeliard (France Domino League 2) . First time I start in 2nd division. I chose FCSM because they have really fast striker and wingers. Using this tactic
with some minor tweaks match to match like defend wider or removing/adding get stuck and work ball in the box. Its definately a good tactic and props to Nik FM for making a video about it. First season in Domino League 2 I finished first and earned a promotion. Broke records for most wins and most points in a season. I figured it was because of my manager character having higher attributes in coaching than the other managers and I'm using a good tactic. In my 2nd season though I currently reside at 3rd place(19 - 4 - 5), second in goals scored and goals conceded only to PSG, 1 point below OL and my next match is against them. At this point I'm sure I have broken the game or exploiting something in the AI of the game because I played the match with OL twice (first time i restart a match on this save) finishing 3-1 and 4-0 in my favour. And OL are on 6 win streak and are a very strong side (PSG lost to them for first time this season in this 6 win streak). Can anyone tell me is this an exploit or why I am achieving such unbelievable results, please ? Never had such problem before, although I'm playing with FC Internazionale 90% of the time. The game has never been this unrealistic (till now I always thought the game is rather realistic). I can provide any screenshots of my game you need.
Thank you in advance !
