  1. A tent in the pitch

    I don't know what causes this, but I had the exact same bug happened twice very early in this beta testing cycle. I remember it appeared after game updates and clearing cache fixed it right away in both cases.
  2. A tent in the pitch

    Deleting cache usually resolves this.
  3. So sad about all that happened to Metalurg Donetsk.
  4. I would suggest 2 CM on attack duty, defensive midfielder, wingers on support, advanced forward and fb's on attack. Look for overlap, higher closing down, normal d-line, short passes, pass into space, tackle harder. Always sub your DM after he gets yellow card, immediately!
  5. Try Spanish only career with Valencia. In other words get rid of all non Spanish players and build a team of Spaniards only. Sounds cool and a little less restrictive than Bilbao career. Sell Zaza and bring back Alcacer in mid season or end of the season, Barca will let him go for cheap. Also I would sign Deulofeu. Hey you can apply the same rule with your staff - only Spaniards! It gets even more exiting. I'm doing exactly the same with my OL team and French only.
  6. I found it's best if you employ two goalkeepers with similar quality, one on First Team status, and the second on Backup and then play the first one in league games, and the second in cups and european competitions. For example I got Predrag Rajkovic as a backup to Pickford in my Everton save, and both are happy. And the third keeper is always on loan , someone I don't give a **** about. No recall and can't terminate loan options if you don't want your loanies to moan about not playing.
  7. Stadium building

    Nope, it's not fun to me. It's a good idea for separate game called "Stadium Architect Pro" though.
  8. Please hide the numbers

    Yeah, someone told me to set alpha values of attributes' colors to 1 and they will disappear. It works.
  9. Two striker formations are also overpowered, but not so much as 3 strikers. Using one is best if you want to edge the game.
  10. I tend to play with one striker, because with 3 strikers it is like cheating the game. It's a massive flaw that multi striker tactics are so overpowered and that kills the fun for me.
  11. It all depends on which competition you're watching and also the climate of the country. Rain isn't that difficult to deal with a good drainage system, but in countries with low average temperatures throughout the year is a different situation, because the ice clogs the drainage and without an expensive under soil heating system, the pitch becomes unbearable.
  12. I'm using Gyazo, probably the best online tool for creating screenshots and instant uploading.
  13. FM18 hide all attributes?!

    I remember someone made such a sking in the past, but I'm not sure there's one for FM18. However, you can achieve this to some extend by enabling the "Bar chart" option in preferences - interface. This makes it a bit hard to guess the numbers. Also it's getting even harder if you change the default attribute/bar chart colors to one color or even better if you try to match the background color, so you won't be able to see the charts at all. Also you can hide the attributes/bar charts from you profile view by clicking the drop down menu and replacing it with something else like biography or comparison. See what I mean? I'm using the default dark skin and I've set the colors to RGB: 31/33/38 and the charts blend with the background. Also don't go to attributes tab and don't highlight attributes as the background changes and they become visible. It's even better if you hide the attributes. Do everything I suggested for best scenario.
  14. Selling players

    I exaggerated slightly. Not world class players, but still high profile players at my Everton squad - Klaassen, Angel Correa, Nicolas Gaitan. They are valued 30M+ each, but even if I offer them to other clubs for as low as 0, no offers come in, which is odd. Mentioned players are on average salary of 70-80k per week, which considered their ability is perfectly normal. Angel Correa is considered rising star, he's 23. Also all players have played regular football the previous season and all of them finished with average rating above 7.5.
