  1. This happens with both rigid and fluid philosophies, and I don't change mentalities manually on either case. I like to use one of the midfielders as a Deep Lying Playmaker, does this have anything to do with my problem?
  2. Yeah, but I usually struggle when that happens, and I don't think that's a coincidence.
  3. How does the AssMan determine my team is being outnumbered in a particular area of the pitch? I'm specially curious since I play a 4-5-1/4-3-3 (back four-DMC-MC-MC-AMR-AML-FC) and whenever I play against a 4-2-3-1 (back four-MC-MC-AMR-AMC-AML-FC) it tells me my defenders and forwards are both being outnumbered by their forwards/defenders. I would really like to know what to do about this.
  4. That would be alright. What I'd really like to see though is assigning set-piece roles to "tall guy", "long distance shooter", etc.... instead of to the actual positions.
  5. The back four, perhaps a couple of more defensively minded midfielders (with one of them being assigned playmaking duties, but that's another matter). I'm thinking more of a philosophical setup, rather than a specific formation.
  6. I want to build tactics with 7-6 players who more or less stick to their shape/roles, and 3-4 others with licence to roam and do all sorts of other fluid things. The obvious answer would seem to be Rigid Philosophy + More Roaming, and I have experimented with that, but does anyone have better ideas?
  7. I didn't make myself clear. I meant, how do I change the variety in the entire game (not just my team)
  8. If I want to alter the variety, what would I need to do "under the hood"?
  9. For the first season, I used a lopsided 4-4-2 diamond with one of the forwards turning into an AML or R for pretty much every game where Ronaldo was available and in good condition (as the inside forward is a role tailor made for him in my system). After getting some signings, I have been alternating between that, 4-5-1 and 4-2-3-1, depending on the situation. For this game I used my traditional diamond formation, with one of the fullbacks (Marcelo) pushed into WB L, trying to anticipate Las Palmas' defensive 4-4-2. On the previous game (return leg of the Champions League quarters, against Arsenal) I used an attacking 4-2-3-1 (the one the game reads as 4-3-3) as I was looking to overturn a first leg deficit.
  10. Sorry for seeming a bit newbieish, but I just got this (for the first time in my FM career), and thought it was a nice touch. Uploaded with ImageShack.us Curious thing is, my formation didn't look much like a 4-1-4-1
  11. I don't think that's what he's asking. I think, how to make the fixtures of important competitions your team is not participating in show up on the screenflow?
  12. I can see a real life 32yo Ronaldinho playing in some petrodollar-fueled league. Leicester may not be as glamorous, but might offer higher quality of play.
  13. I do not have much problems with offside calls, at least relative to real life. What I don't like about refereeing in this one is that the refs seem to have no clue of the advantage rule.
  14. Did it on the first season (FM10) with Real Madrid, and I'm on course to do it again in the second season.
