    Introduce pre-assist stat. simply to understand which players are the ones that are instrumental to provide assisters. alternative could be a stat that counts how many times a player was in the last 3 passes before a goal or so.
  2. Could really enjoy the game, but somewhere since mid dec something changed and my 2nd season / xmas holiday play went really bad - which sucked me in - and at the end I got sacked! (Leicester, high pressing tactics).That hasnt happened often in 20 years of CM! Maybe me getting old, but then i really feel not much i could do about it. Now started to read here and seems like all the things i cant get my head around are listed here as known deficiencies. (Ccc missed in the tens, too many shots per game (30-40 often), opposition CB making super long assist balls and my CB being statues over again leading to conceding, too many long ball goals outside 16, frustrating crossing) so ok, now am waiting for a patch and then i hope i can still re load a save from some weeks before the sack.
  3. Tbh i think he has a point. Like a player has an agent to say to clubs he wont even talk to other clubs, samw should apply to staff. I dont think its a bad idea.
  4. Now you highlighted completed passes. If you want to see all of Burke's passes you would have to click on the 10 and 22 and 2 further on same line. I would propose one button to show all at once. I know its a small thing but just wanted to share.
  5. First impressions. Congrats! Positive highlights - Showing linked events on the analysis tab. This helps to see the build up to a goal or chance. In past versions lost a lot of time clicking "back" or watching it to find that out. - Can show both teams average positions on the same map, nice showing how they compared - Opposition is sometimes changing formation during game (something I don't know if it was maybe existing before but I literally never saw it happening) - Battling for the ball is much more happening and unpredictable. You think he is making a mistake and then the ref allows the physicality. Great! - Deflected free kicks...becoming a goal! Great and very realistic. - 3 direct free-kick goals in 10 games. - Great and utterly stupid red cards. - Electronic digital billboards My laptop is from 2010 and runs it very fine. Gave me 0,5 star recommended very low, but can play it easily on medium without stuttering. Uncertain areas: - higher amount of penalties (need more games to check)? Playing czech first division. Improvement areas - Cant highlight eg all passes of one player in the analysis players tab. Would need to click all different passes to highlight. One button in front of the player to highlight all his passes would be nice. Overall rating 4,5/5. Losing half due to no progress on training and day-2-day mngmt and press conferences.
  6. I think its related to the restructuring of the league where there will be a clear new split between professional football (first and second league) and the semi or amateur.
  7. Stafancho, till what age can you remain a manager in the game? Whats your age now - 100?
  8. "I love the ME! The players play the way you assign them roles to and it's running quite smoothly. If there would be 1 comment that I have, it would be that I have seen a lot of penalties stopped by the GK. In the 10 games I played, 5 penalties were stopped while 3 got scored. I'll assess it as I go further in the career before reporting it as a bug. The pinnacle was the GK from Andorra stopping a penalty from Hazard." ..., in real life game Andorra - Belgium, Andorra's GK did save Hazard's penalty (it was has second of the game) :-). Am not able to assess the underlying question though, just found it funny you said this.
  9. Keeper diving, flying, superhero saving already exactly in the direction of where the shot will end up,.....but the shot didnt take place yet. I know its not scripted but if you see those, it feels scripted.
  10. Work many chances and effort to go 1-0 against a top team. -- after kick off within 5 Min they get a foul close to the box and of course they score with a massive freekick. or fluke.
  11. Very good and useful explanation. So its little bit like the butterfly effect where you dont know if a change you make is having an effect somewhere later down the match. However & nevertheless, you can make a huge difference as manager!
  12. Common sense is probably one of the most challenging to "code". Though I agree with your point that there are a couple of those recurring which make it less immersive and unnecessarily frustrating Other examples imo. - Game play changes and positioning & marking. from attacking to defensive for example. When you have your MC to stay backwards (defenders up to head) and you lose possession from the attacking corner, all players will start running to hold their assigned marked man ( if any) However that can lead to situation where opposite party is countering rushing with 4 men forward while one of the back guys (e.g. MC) actually runs the opposite way not even bothering what the opposite counter is doing. Logics would be that the MC as given task stay backward, will stay backward and do the defensive task and cover until the team is back in position and then switch to mark. - Goalkeeper would not take freekick at own corner (committed issue by SI I understand)
  13. Ah interesting, with me the form only stays as long as they eat spaghetti bolognese after each win. On a serious note, a tactic that worked for many games is not any garantee. Maybe some training on set pieces is required, maybe players are going through lower form curve and you need to spice them up with some competition. Could be complacency, could be fear. You maybe have been able to overperform much longer than normal given the squad quality. Basically impossible to say, but focussing on the fundamentals and ensuring there is balance is the first step ro regain good playing style and results will come with it.
  14. Matthew Ryan, far froom worldclass but safe pair of hands.
  15. 2-6 against Liverpool. Semi final FA cup @ Wembley. Me playing Manutd. Funny enough lost in the league at Anfield also two weeks earlier, 5-1. Really shame. Anyway won the league 94 points, so can take it on the chin.
