  1. Has there been a fix for this yet? not seen any update on it.
  2. @Simon TippleOf course, thats all we can do is wait and see what happens. Just thought id share what i have found in pre-beta, beta and game. The wider public do need to appreciate it is not just the attribute input that affects the way a team plays in game however unfortunately this is the first area of the game that people will criticism as its a physical data on a profile screen. They cant see the coding that utilize this data that could be the issue. Im sure we will do more testing as and when the game is updated and data potentially altered if that is indeed the issue.
  3. As you have mentioned, its too simplistic to focus on CA, the game is built around numbers and the higher/lower the number is along with its weightings (which are determined by the coders as having an effect in the ME) will depend on how the ME interprets them and 'converts' it into performance, obviously there are other parts of the game that come into effect i.e. morale, and the overall tactic but attributes are the base of the game. Its no different from Daljit @Rashidi to grinding out trying to find the 'perfect' tactical system to find that nishe in the code. I just personally don't lik
  4. @Simon Tipple, Appreciate passing on your points and of course in testing is where we find if things need to be tweaked. I still do think this year of all years, when the team has been in decline, that there are a few players that in my opinion do not warrant the 17+ attributes in certain areas. By dropping the points by a couple you notice a subtle difference more akin to their performances this and last season when they only really scraped 3rd due to the decline of others. If there was no sharp decline MU would have been 5/6th. Im not one for decreasing the players significantly but
  5. As others have said regarding Man Utd, they are over performing when compared to RL. Their players mental attributes are too high across the board with WR, TW , concentration, decisions and determination, that complied with hidden attribute consistency, unfortunately make them too efficient in game. If you add their high physical attributes Acc, Pace, and stamina they have all the key attributes to perform very well. Rashford, Martial, Pogba and Fernandes all appear to be performing to a high level in terms of consistency in game and their goals and assists. Im sure the research tea
  6. Can you do a Ajax formation and tactical play philosophy or point me in the right direction? Great depth of info on the above. unfortunately i lost Veltman in Jan as he wasnt going to sign a new deal and Eiltling to a Chinese club as he wanted to speak to them.
  7. I go back farther than that Good old Domark. With this incarnation tactics, mentality and transitions are a whole different ball game to FM18 let alone back in the day of 01/02 when everything was very very simple. Keep chipping away and making small adjustments and my advice is watch the ME on comprehensive highlights to work out what is going right and wrong with your tactics that isnt getting the best out of Ozil. Look at Ozils positioning and where he is receiving the ball and more importantly what he is doing with it, you will be surprised. Understanding your tactic and what pl
  8. Starts with Theory, then practice which you need to understand the roles and how they affect the tactic. It all comes with experience
  9. What you describe there is a non pressing creative player that when on the ball he performs well. If yous et up with a hard working MC line and play him at AMC line he will perform wonders. Bergkamp was similar however when he did run and put himself about it led to a foul or a card as he couldnt tackle. Ozil is on the highest wage at the club, will be hard to rid of so i would advise play him and build the team around him. You can also train him to try and improve his WR. A WR of 11 isnt too shabby tbh, that would be enough to press in the final third. Ask him to stay in the final thir
  10. Why sell him? Play him behind the SC and he will perform wonders. If your trying to sell he will be difficult due to his wages and the loyalty bonus arsenal would have to pay.
  11. Do you have an ET on when your pack will be available? Want to start a proper german career but need 4.Liga/Regionals.

  13. As one of the old guard on here, its nice to see new tactical genius on here replicating good old systems. Ill give this a go. KUTGW.
  14. Hi Smurf, im looking at a new lappy so would appreciate your input. I have seen a few on the website but am now not so sure. I have a budget of £500 Amount of a leagues/clubs. as many as possible as PC runs all leagues. Are 3d graphics important? Maybe but having a quicker machine is more important What other tasks do you do when playing FM? . internet Is game speed essential? Yes Fast load and save times? Not really Screen size important? at least 15 Does it need to be portable (light) or do you want it as a desktop replacement (heavier and not ideal for carrying around but o
