  1. Is this pass combination map normal? All my games look like that (ultra possession football), yet I feel as though my forwards should be slightly further up the pitch on that graphic. Have I got the front man on the right role? Any basic suggestions for travelling away to lesser teams? I tend to struggle against Huddersfield/Wolves etc. I don't really tinker too much with the tactic, maybe changing mentality to Balanced and moving the AMC to a DM role to counter the more attacking formation home teams tend to go for.
  2. As the title says really. Picked up the EA having not played the original since 2008 and I feel the animations are very stuttery (is that a word?). It's really evident when the puck gets dumped along the boards as it seems to skip every half second or so and does slide smoothly. Anyone else encountering this?
  3. I'd like to make West Ham a financial powerhouse.

    Getting players to move around off the ball

    The thing I'm worried about is because of my teams strength the opposition usually play Counter-attacking football, which has cost me points. So keeping 3 midfielders back allows my WBs to go bombing forward, without leaving the defense in trouble on the counter when we lose possession. I might try changing both MCs to support and see what happens. I played another game, away to Zulte (who are prime candidates for relegation) and won 3-0, with all three coming from set pieces. We looked a lot more threatening on attack when I change the width slider all the way to the right which is promising. I've now got an away trip to Lyon in the CL where a draw will see us into the knockout stages. I might keep the formation as is, purely because Lyon are the stronger team.

    Getting players to move around off the ball

    My backs are both Central Defenders with Stopper and Cover positions. I'll have a tinker with width and change my FBs to Ball Playing Defenders and see what happens. Cheers guys.
  6. Take a look at this game I've attached. Anderlecht (me) against Mons who are sitting third in the standings. You can download it here. BE WARNED, IT'S POSSIBLY THE MOST BORING GAME EVER! Line-ups Kouyate is playing as an Anchor Man with Ralf and Arouca playing as defensive minded Ball-Winning Midfielders. Traore is an attacking Advanced Playmaker with Nilmar as Poacher and Diego Souza Deep-Lying Forward. Both Wingbacks are set to support. I watched the full game, 75% of which consisted of Kouyate, Ralf, Arouca and Traore passing the ball between themselves at the top of the area whilst everyone else stood around and watched. Nobody attempted to make any off the ball runs or anything, it was boring. I finished the game with 71% possession in a game I won 1-0. However, I changed formations at half-time; had I not possession would've been higher and it would've finished 0-0 because I didn't create any chances. I tried shouting things like "Exploit the flanks" and "Try early crosses", I even changed my tactics to promote play down the flanks to no avail. How do I stop the four midfielders tapping the ball between themselves and actually try and move the ball around the width of the field?

    FM13 Beta 4-4-1-1 Winged Wonders Tactic

    I've been a long time user of people's tactics as I just don't have the know how (or time!) to tinker with tactics. So to start my first save as Anderlecht I decided to give your tactic a try. Now Anderlecht don't really have much in the way of opposition in the domestic league but a 1-0 loss to Lokeren in the Belgian Super Cup didn't fill me with confidence. Since then the tactic has done wonders for me. Although I'm 5 games from finishing the league, I'm 12 points clear with a 18-5-2 record. Both losses were 1-0 defeats away from home were we dominated but couldn't put the ball into the back of the net. By far though was my romp through a tough Champions League group with Valenica (1-1 draws in both games), Chelsea (3-3 draw after being 3-0 down with 13 minutes left, and 3-2 after squandering a 2-0 lead late on) and BATE (where we won 1-0 and drew 1-1) which most impressed me. Of the games I've dropped points, it seems to be, like most goals conceded, that bugs in the ME are to blame (things such as defenders getting stuck in a jog animation etc.) although I have noticed when teams line-up with the same formation as myself they certainly tend to give me a tougher game. One of the ways I've been combating this is dropping one of MCs into the DM position as an anchor man and that seems to help somewhat. Changing strategy to "Attacking" when away from home against weaker opposition also seems to yield slightly better results than that of a "Standard" strategy. But only change to Attacking if you aren't dominating the possession stakes. I've also found it useful to place the wingbacks higher up the field, particularly when in the second half and you're pushing against a weaker team.
  8. Wouldn't it be easier to add the Fury as opposed to the Razorbacks?

    KoanaAr Football League

    I didn't. The game has that hard-coded unfortunately.

    KoanaAr Football League

    NOTE: I have replaced American Samoa with my fictional country, the Republic of Koana Islands. To help keep myself interested I have made the league standard about as good as Belgium. I will put this up for download so any queries or just general chat about the edited game can go in here too. I intend on improving the xml file over time. But there are no promises. The Koana Islands have finally completed their 18-year suspension for match fixing that was imposed by FIFA. The Koana Islands will now officially enter the rankings in 204th place, the first time the nation has ever been placed in the FIFA rankings. The Koana Football League, called the KoanaAr Football League for sponsorship reasons is the only professional football league in the islands of Koana. 42 teams are split into two divisions called East and West depending on geographical location. They play a double round robin against teams within their division for a total of 40 games. The top 8 from both divisions then go into 1-game only Play-offs to decide a winner. The winning team will then represent the Koana Islands in the Oceania Champions League the following year. Click to enlarge the map Running alongside the Football League is the Nationwide Cupen which is an FA Cup style competition in which teams knock each other out over 2-legs. 22 teams are randomly selected for a bye in the first round. Each team must have 3 Koanian nationals in their starting eleven for every match, with one having been brought up through the teams youth system. Megopolis United, New Auckland, Rothes Town and Vizhune Electric are widely regarded as the best teams in the Koana Islands with Megopolis United in particular owned by the same man who runs the very successful Megopolis Titans baseball team. All teams are filled with regens. Eastern Division Arbordale (6th) Conneaut Lions (10th) Conneaut Red Bull (21st) Cosby City Athletic (5th) Crawfordleigh Aces (12th) Dunnport City (20th) Forres Thistle (15th) Greenborough (17th) Hope FC (18th) Lexington-England (9th) Newport City United (2nd) Ocean Point Town (13th) River City Rovers (11th) Rothes Town (7th) Saffron United (3rd) Sandford City (14th) Uckford (16th) Vizhune Electric (8th) Waterford City (1st) Watermoor Athletic (19th) Xyport Redbacks (4th) Western Division Bayside City (16th) Bayside Pumas (4th) Black Island (12th) Blanchester City (15th) Cherry City (5th) Embleton (9th) Hollydale Astros (19th) Humoor Ducks (20th) Jonestown Thunder (14th) Kings Soccer (8th) Maytown United (11th) Megopolis Roar (13th) Megopolis United (2nd) New Auckland (1st) Nyhaven Knights (6th) Portlethen (10th) Princeton State (21st) Saphire Coast Athletic (3rd) T.R.U.

Otherwise, place the koana2.xml file in the "editor data" folder located in your FM 2011 folder and place the "Koana" folder in the graphics folder. You may need to reload the skin for the logos to appear.

    Official: Editor Suggestions Thread

    Sorry if this has been mentioned. But wouldn't it be great if we could import Cities, Players, Stadiums and Clubs from .csv files or even as comma-seperated text files? I find the bigest gripe with the editor is it is SSSSOOOOOO time consuming to create a large pyramid league from scratch. Particular if you are creating a nation from scratch.

    Fm add on i would like to see included

    Ffs. Not again. It's called FIFA Manager, look it up.
  13. I base my entire Ukraine team around Tymoshchuk and whilst he hasn't scored a goal, or even an assist in forever we have only conceeded 1 goal in over 9 internationals, including games against England, Croatia and Netherlands. His ratings have been a bit "meh" but he does the job I expect of him, and so I ignore his ratings.
