  1. I've made some tweaks, but i'm still barely creating any chances. My first save is always with FCPorto, with a more direct play style an it's way easier, but possession tactics for some reason aren't working for me. I've lowered the tempo in order to give the WB time to join the attack, changed de AMR to Treq because the IF goes forward too quickly. I'm having lots of possession but the attack usually end in crosses, which is almost the opposite of what i want. The midfield combo feels weird. The mezzala gets in the area a lot. Would an AP work here? Or 2 playmakers would be too much? The left side seems fit for an overload, would that help? This match was the perfect example. The goal was from a set piece. Apart from that, 0 chances.
  2. Thanks for all the insights! Gonna try some tweaks.
  3. What kind of changes would you suggest for improving this setup? The main ideia is getting a line of 5 when attacking with the MC feeding them.
  4. Thanks! I've tried more possession TI's because i was getting average of 40% possession, not controlling any game. Probably overdid it, but POOD and Be More expressive wouldnt be a change from overkill to underkill? I dont want 60% of possession and 0 chances, but I'm looking forward for a short pass oriented build up with a fluid attack. I have some doubts about narrow/wide. I want lots of central play, with the MC feeding both wingers when cutting inside. What would suit better? In my view, narrow would suit best against strong teams (easier to keep possession) while wide would be the option for narrow defenses. Balanced mentality, PooD, shorter passing (1 notch to the left), Be More Expressive and Narrow is still too much? I'm not sure about the left side, seems a bit conservative. Gonna make a few changes and try it!
  5. Hey, I've started a new save with FCBarcelona and couldnt be more frustrated. I'm trying to play a somewhat agressive possession football, trying to emulate a 2-3-5 attack formation, with the wing backs very stretched and the wingers being the main goal threats with inside cuts. The midfield trio should be the feeders, but somehow the mezalla+ RPM is not working as i expected. I've tried 2 mezzalas but this makes the MC go too much up the field. Also the DLF is kinda useless in scoring/assisting. What happens most of the time is that we struggle against average and weaker teams, not having many goal chances and ocasionally conceding a goal in the counter. The worst part are the big games, i was beaten 7-1 by Liverpool (even though LFC is OP) after getting a close draw in the home game. I like to start the games with narrow + balanced, switching to positive/wide when dominating or cautious+lower tempo when being dominated. First eleven: Stegen Roberto (stay wider) - Pique - Lenglet - Alba (stay wider) Busquets De Jong (RPM) - Pedri (Mezz) Messi (roam)- Griezmann - Fati/Dembelé (roam) Any hints to improve? *forgot the "Drible less" TI*
  6. My tactic is pretty much the same as yours. Defensively solid. I feel i'm getting good results against top teams but struggle a lot against weaker sides, winning by 1 goal (many from set pieces and penalties) and not creating a lot. My strikers are kinda useless too. Sometimes i put the AML as IF-A and the Striker as DLP-S or F9 but i'm still struggling a lot to score. Any hints?
  7. I have the split block already (5 front pressing more). Should i remove the Prevent Short GKD? My AMR is the top scorer, does it make sense making him an IF and have 2 IFs? All my wide players are either IW or IF and i dont like using pure Wingers.
  8. I've been trying to make my 4-3-3 focused on possesion work, but all I have are draws and 1-0 wins. I've taken ideas from some of the other 4-3-3 in this forum but it seems nothing works. The team lacks offensive power and though i'm not conceding a lot i fell that we're vulnerable to counters. Im trying to stretch the left side and overload the middle right with good passing players. I've tried the B2B instead of Mezalla but it seem worse attacking wise. Any suggestions/critics?
  9. The example i've told before. I'm playing with Porto and many of my key players were injured/suspended. I got a red card early in the game and CIty created many chances, but they kept on missing one after the other. This is clearly a sign that the ME is programmed to make the results balanced by unbalancing the game as it keeps happening. I managed to score 2 goals from penalties, both after long balls from the CB (Pepe is not the greatest passer in the game) where the defenders acted like fools. I'm not a master tactician or a FM genius, but i can see the flaws in the game. You can still thrive with great results sure, just exploit the flaws and have fun with it. All in all, i still believe this is fixable and hope to have some fun playing this game.
  10. After some time being a casual reader here i've decided to register to give my 2 cents about the current ME. The image represents every game i'm a favourite., this one ended 1-1. A lot of big chances, 1 on 1 with the keeper, easy tap ins missed etc etc. My goal in this game was a rebound after a penalty (there's just too many). This happened against me this time, but i also managed a draw against City in a game i was totally trashed but they missed more than 7/8 easy goals. It's not fun playing this game once you see its flaws. I understand the development work is not easy, and if you increase the scoring % you need to balance the number of chances created, but this game is released every year with only light changes, the core (being the ME) should be consolidated many years ago. I'm putting my save on stand-by until a new patch that makes it fun, and deliberating wether i'm gonna keep buying this game or not. SC Braga v FC Porto.pkm
