    United's 99 Tactic

    Thank you! Appreciate it.

    Haha! I actually made that database. Great to see someone liked it. Beckham not having 20's for those attributes is probably to do with the weighting of the Current Ability in FM18 compared to FM14! If you upped it a little I'm sure you'd see him as he was designed.

    [Wales] (Official) Data Issues

    Is this the right forum for this? The Welsh national stadium is still listed as "Various" but the games are always played at the Cardiff City Stadium in real life.

    New Laptop/PC - Help Needed

    Thanks @Welshace, so something like the one someone posted just above? http://www.pcworld.co.uk/gbuk/computing/laptops/laptops/hp-pavilion-15-6-laptop-with-the-latest-7th-gen-intel-core-i5-processor-white-10151808-pdt.html I think it lacks the dedicated card, but as long as I can run FM at a reasonable speed and the 3D doesn't lag, I'll be happy. How much more do you think is reasonable to expect to spend to go from "fine - spectacular" as you put it? Perhaps a higher price is worth it if I get more years out of it.

    New Laptop/PC - Help Needed

    I've been trying to research laptops, but honestly finding it all very confusing. Not being too technically minded about the technology that goes into laptops, I'm hoping you guys can help me out? I have a PC I use for gaming with these specs: http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/PhWJhM It's very much fit for purpose, BUT... it's connected to the TV. I've played FM on a laptop (MacBook Pro) for years and got used to the mobility of it, and would rather have that again than play on a huge screen. So if I want to get a laptop that's really only for FM, Minecraft and browsing the internet etc, what do I need to look for? Budget is up for debate at the moment, but am I unreasonable to expect to pay something like £400 to last a good few years before I need to replace it?
  7. Pretty sure it's already out
  8. Hi, perhaps someone with a bit of knowledge about how the "export" process works can help me here? Some friends and I play against each other using the Versus mode which is now in the separated FM Touch game, rather than full fat FM. To do this, we create our teams in full fat FM, then use the "export team for versus competition" feature. I was playing a friendly earlier when I noticed my DLP(D) was not dropping into defence as he had been when I used him in full fat FM, given that he has the "comes deep to get ball" PPM. I checked his information and attributes and sure enough, his PPM's had changed to 'None'. The same rang true for other players I checked as well. So my question is simple, is this part of the export process? Do PPM's not carry over when you export teams? Also, I'm not able to edit opposition instructions in Versus mode in FMT17. Is this by design, or have I missed the option to enable them?

  10. Missed this at the time, but felt I had to comment now. I'm not sure I ever had a conversation with Kriss, but his name was everywhere here and it's really sad to know he won't be posting again. A huge loss to the FM community.
  11. Forgive me for a short title, but I think tabs would be a great addition to FM. Instead of one page being the focus of the game, whether it's inbox, squad etc, it would make the game a lot more fluid if you could make use of tabs like you would in any internet browser. How many times have you been looking at a contract (for example) and wanted to check something else, a little detail, only to find yourself having to click far more than necessary in order to check said detail and find your way back to the contract?

    wales tactics

    I'm having trouble keeping the shape narrow without the ball, yet wide in possession. My work around at the moment is to play on "Control" or "Attacking" to split the 3 into wider positions, while at the same time asking them to play more narrowly in team instructions. But I feel it's making the players a little too gung-ho. Anyone got any suggestions?
  13. 'Nothing to see' I know, but I hadn't appreciated that the passing style changed between positions on the field. Made the incorrect assumption that attacking = direct all over the pitch. I will try it with Counter and see how I get on.
  14. Mentality: I read it as the opposite, that more direct play would be achieved by being more Attacking. Also on the low block, my instinct said to take that route because of the age/pace of the defence, but the article seemed to suggest the opposite. Happy to put this down to my own misinterpretation, of course, I just think it's great that we can read the same article and reach different conclusions when interpreting it in FM. I'm curious about your choice of instructions regarding the wing backs, that's something I couldn't think how to re-create in FM, so I think I'll try your way on for size.
