  1. Thanks once again. I've talked about learning those PPM's because as far as I know, TI overrides PI, but PPM are always used no matter what, right? So what I'm thinking is that a BDP or a DLP in a DMC position wont try that as much because of that TI. But maybe I'm just overcomplicating the simple stuff
  2. @Cleon thanks! I see. So let's say that I want most of my attacks building from the back but sometimes I want my BDP and my DMC who is a DLP to launch quick and through balls when they see the chance; if I use play out from defence TI but having those 2 players to learn tries long range passes and/or tries killer ball often PPM, they'd still do them? Obviously depending on their attributes and situations.
  3. Can someone please give me an opinion? I'd really appreciate.
  4. Hello, Two questions: 1 - If you have a very good passer in DC or DMC position and you want them to sometimes launch long balls, i suppose not a good ideia to use play out from defence TI? 2- When you use 2 strikers tactics, is it fine to use them both with roles that moves into channels? Like a F9 and a AF? Or is it always better to have one more static like a Poacher? Thanks!
  5. Hello, When you decide to bring a scout, besides CA and PA, you go for determination or adaptability? Which one is better?
  6. Scout - Determination or Adaptability?

    Thank you both! @herne79 then I think it's always a better idea to go by our instinct and not so much by the scout?
  7. Scout - Determination or Adaptability?

    Thanks. That makes sense. I also wonder why I have a scout with 18 for CA and 20 for PA and gave me a report of a youngster with CA of 2 stars and PA of 4,5, but the truth is that he did not develop as I was expecting, which means that his PA was not that high and there was not much room for development, I ended up selling that player to a poor team, after 4 seasons in my team. Why do scouts fail like this, is it normal? It's not the only case, I have many like that.
  8. Thanks herne. I haven't played FM18, but judging by his attributes in FM17 Kranevitter is the perfect BWM, but unfortunately is way out of my budget. And the fact is that i'm not finding many players with the right attributes, within my budget. What do you think of this guy? He still have some room to develop.
  9. Hi, Do you consider agression,bravery and concentration vital for BWM role?
  10. @Rashidi closing down much more for the outer MC's is it something you'd normally do with a 4132? Or maybe only in the central MC?
  11. Basically how close you want your players to be.
  12. @Rashidi to try to not overcomplicate things when it comes to shapes, I think like this: Do I want more players in offensive/defensive transitions? Then I play fluid. Do I want them to be more "positional"? Then I choose more structured shapes.
  13. Correct me if i'm wrong but i believe that Play Wider TI only affect the horizontal space between players, it doesn't mean that the play will focus down the flanks, like it did in pre-FM17 versions.
  14. Interesting system. @Rashidi do you use it most with weaker teams or do you think it can also be good for a better team?
  15. Hi, Is move into channels useless for players in AMCL/AMCR positions? I ask this because they're already in the channels Thanks.
  16. Thanks. Yes thats right, i dont have the game with me but i know that TQ has finishing but not dribbling. But i'd certainly search for off the ball if i wanted to use a Mezalla. That also what i'm looking for, that TQ chips in a few too, i think it's a balanced system.
  17. Hello all. Two questions: 1 - I haven't played FM18 so far, but i've seen that the highlighted attributes for Mezalla role does not require off the ball, which is strange to me, because it has roam from position instruction, so wouldnt off the ball be important too? 2- Is there such a thing as using too many playmakers? Right now i'm using 4 in my team (Regista, DLP, TQ and AP). What i want them to do is to be the main creators for my Shadow Striker and DLF(A). Does this make sense? Thank you.
  18. Good that you're Man Utd, for most games it shouldnt be much of problem, but that midfield par is asking for trouble.
  19. Thanks herne. What about hug touchline for the fullbacks, is it something you'd normally do in a narrow formation?
  20. For those who play with narrow formations, such as 4-1-3-2, 4-1-2-1-2 diamond, narrow 4231 etc: Do you normally play with play wider TI, so you central players have more space to play? Is it a good ideia to do that with such formations? Thank you.
