  1. I have always only played this game with all leagues in play, and even with additional players and staff through the advanced data base set up. This since I first started playing this game, and that was with CM2 I think, some time in the 90's. I've just started epxloring the 2019 beta with exactly the same setup as usual. My current hardware is a laptop i7, 8 GB memory and everything is on a SSD. I'm comfortable with the speed.
  2. A stadium editor and some keen modders, there's the answer. But now that SI have started to put "real" advertising in the grounds, I guess there would be a few problems with that too.
  3. I have my keeper (SK/support) distribute to central defenders. I have yet to see the opposition nick the ball from one of my defenders or the HB. The keeper is not stupid; if CDs/HB is tightly marked he finds other passing outlets, usually the WB's. I play a very fluid 4123 DM formation.
  4. I use a HB in front of a "flat" back four (WB-BPD-BPD-WB), and I disagree with Özil-to-the-Arsenal on this subject, even if I agree with him on a lot of other tactical aspects. My central defenders move wide enough to cover the flanks left by attacking WB's, but not too wide so that they leave a huge gap in the middle. The HB in front of a back four will not safeguard that central gap all the time, but - when the team is in possession - move a bit furher up the pitch to act as a possession recycler, a better passing outlet for the more advanced players. The gap he leaves then could be easily
  5. Well, lower fps during the time the game is processing (the screens where the game is processing day by day) does not actually make the cpu processing any slower, and the game itself isn't going to be any slower because of that. Low fps should only be of concern when watching matches. Those of us who are able to monitor graphic card performance in real time would have noticed that whenever the game is out of the live match screen the graphics processor and video memory will tend to clock down considerably - that is typical and perfectly normal behaviour. You can - allthough there's really litt
  6. Is it the same in windowed mode as in full screen?
  7. I play with all leagues playable. I want as large a football world as possible in the game; it's the only way to play ... according to me. I get half a star, I think - that does not matter; I get the speed that I get, and for me, that speed is fine. I'm not the impatient type of gamer. It's up to you. Load as many leagues/players as you want. Play. If the game moves on a bit too slow for you, then start a new save with fewer leagues loaded, less detail, fewer players - whatever. I think I once read - many years ago - that one of the Collyer brothers (the fathers of this game) said in
  8. No. I think I got half a star or maybe a whole one. Doesn't bother me at all, the game runs along at a decent enough speed ... for me.
  9. Laptop i7 6700HQ, SSD and 8 GB of DDR4 RAM; runs all legues that comes with the game playable, and with advanced data base adding even more players and staff. (I think I started with about 180k +). It's fine.
  10. You mean a DFB, right? Well that would be a waste of Speedy Gonzales (Bellerin) at the right back, I feel. But maybe if he's not playing there ... Incidentally, my tactics are rather similar to Özil-to-the-Arsenal's Pep's Barcelona system. He and I share many of the same thoughts tactics wise.
  11. Well there's no need to, really ... all instructions are there in my post, simpler and quicker for you to just make a new tactic and copy my instructions, if that's what you really want to do.
  12. Tactics that brought me the Premiership in the first season (2017-2018). No cheating of any kind. 4-1-2-3 DM Wide. Control. Very Fluid. Shorter passing, play out of defense, work ball into box, whipped crosses, close down more. Starting at the back, and from left to right: SK/Support (Distribute to central defenders) WB/support - BPD/defend - BPD/defend (CD/defend if Mertesacker) - CWB/support (WB/support if anyone else but Bellerin plays at right back; and the right winger/IF also gets a "get further forward" then) HB/defend AP/attack (get further
  13. There are quite a few box-to-box type players in the game with good attributes to take on Vieira's role, but not all of them with the same physical presence in height and weight. I'd probably try and train someone like Bazoer or Goretzka into the role. Bazoer in particular looks very promising in my save - young and still "shapeable".
