  1. I guess this won't be updated until 21.3 update which I think is the next data update?
  2. Thank you. I would also like to thank researchers in Italy for their hard work in making FM a realistic simulation of the soccer.
  3. Thanks for your reply. I changed Pirlo's preferred tactic to 5-2-1-2 WB in pregame editor and got very realistic numbers. I hope FM will change Juventus' formations in the next data update.
  4. So, the game no longer emulates teams that use 3-4-1-2 formation? I wonder why the formation was removed. To see Juventus play in 5-2-3 with Ronaldo as AML in FM21 is not right.
  5. So, I need to set 5-2-1-2 WB as Pirlo’s preferred formation to emulate Juventus’ 3-4-1-2 formation? Do you know why pre-game editor does not let me select 3-4-1-2 as a preferred formation for managers?
  6. The pre-game editor does not let me change the preferred formation to 3-4-1-2. I hope the database update will reflect formations that Juventus use in real life while ensuring that they result in realistic stats.
  7. I can’t select certain formations such as 3-4-1-2 or 3-5-2, in either pre-game or in game editor. When I click on the drop down for preferred formation in non-player edit, I do not see the above mentioned formations. It seems that it is a glitch. As such, I can’t change Pirlo’s preferred formation to 3-4-1-2, the one he uses in real life.
  8. Is there any way to change Pirlo’s first preferred formation to 3-4-1-2 to mirror Juventus’ formation in real life? In the official version, AI run Juventus has 5-2-3 WB W formation with Cristiano Ronaldo on AML and Dybala on top. (with Morata on the bench). This results in Cristiano Ronaldo barely scoring, and Juventus immensely struggling in the league. Cristiano Ronaldo is no longer on AML since a few years ago, and Dybala is not a striker for Juventus. If you watched any of Juventus matches this season, you would notice right away that this formation and the resultant players’ positions are not even close to any of the formations used by the team. In the beta version, AI run Juventus had 5-2-2-1 WB formation with Cristiano Ronaldo on top. This resulted in Cristiano Ronaldo scoring around 30 goals per season competing for the top scorer just like in real life, and Juventus was one of the most formidable opponents you would face in Serie A. Although not perfect, I thought this, at least, represented Juventus well in terms of goals and standing in the league. FM editor does not let me choose 3-4-1-2 as Pirlo’s preferred formation in real life. Every time I purchased FM (since 2011), the first thing I did was to simulate the leagues where Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi played and see how closely the results resembled the real life. I think this is the first year the game is seriously lacking in this respect, and that takes away much of my enjoyment of the game.
  9. Cristiano Ronaldo's milestones and biography are missing 2020 Italian Serie A champions. If you go to his History>Milestones, his 2020 Italian Serie A champions is omitted. If you go to his History>Biography, his 2020 Italian Serie A champions is omitted. Please add it to his milestones and biography. Thank you!
