  1. I don't know but there is a theory that some of them would use TI. Because if you go to AI manager profile, you would find there are some TI in their "tend to" section.
  2. @scratchmonkey I totally agree with you, mate. IMO, that might be the reason why SI introduced player roles like Segundo Volante or RPM to minimize the gap in 4-2-3-1 DM Wide, because if you look into most AI formation with "double-pivot", they are all using 1*DLP paired with 1"BWM when players are placed in CM slot, I think that's the way SI try to make them act more like "double-pivot", but like what I said, this "coding" act would also make AI play some No.10 player in the "double-pivot" slot in a DLP role. So, if you keep playing, you would find almost all CM in the game, they are all trained into a DLP in the game after a few years.
  3. Thanks for your suggestion. But, my point is AI would use player like Dele and Gotze in 4231 Wide because they are natural in CM position and the default formation of 4-2-3-1 in game is with two centre midfielders, which I think it quite not right if you look into 4-2-3-1 in real life.
  4. Hey guys, I have been playing FM for years and really dig into the tactical side of this game. Tactics have a lot of new features this year but I still find something is confusing through years: The formation. Take the two most widely used formation as examples: 4-3-3 and 4-2-3-1. We all know 4-3-3 in real life is interpreting as 4-1-4-1 in game. It is fine because if we look into the component of 4-3-3 in real-life. We would see 4 defenders, 1*no.6, 2*no.8, and three attackers, which are translated well into the formation in-game. But if we look into the 4-2-3-1 formation in-game, we would see 2*no.8 and 1*No.10 in the formation, which completely makes no sense if you know how 4-2-3-1 work in real-life. It should be 2*no.6 in 4-2-3-1, and one of them operate like a mixture between no.6 and no.8. In older versions of the game, we could see SI designed almost all managers who used 4-2-3-1 in real life would use 4-2-3-1 DM Wide in game, which I would say is a pretty correct interpret ation. However, in recent versions, they just set up AI manager using 4-2-3-1 with two center midfielders, and it makes this formation totally being interpreted wrong. You might say it is not a big deal but think about its domino effect. For example, if a player is Natural in no.8 position, AI manager would use it as a double-pivot in a 4-2-3-1 Wide. Just think about some players like Dele Ali, Gotze being used as double-pivot, which would cause a total mess. That's why I think a lot of formation should be redesigned to reflect the real-life tactics and the role distribution as well. Maybe we could introduce some real-life football terms like No.6, No.8, No.10, those terms are used by real-life managers in practice. Want to know what do you guys think of this?
