  1. Your defenders are too slow to play attacking football. Hummels, Zagadou, Toprak have all awful acceleration get rid of them and replace them with defenders having at least 13 acc and speed.
  2. It's a bit random somehow. In my Manchester United save Bayern hasn't won the league in 4 years. It was Dortmund, Leipzig, Leverkusen and Dortmund again. In my Barca save on the other hand Bayern has won 3 out of 3 seasons so far, well and in my Dortmund save they haven't won any because I won the league 3 times in a row but Bayern came 2nd, 2nd, 4th. so far, but they are useless in the CL, never get past the 1st knock out round.
  3. Yeah like I said, I still generate a ton of chances, even on cautious and have nice possession but it simply doesn't improve results at all. Like usually if I play a very defensive bottom half team with my all out attacking approach I will have between 12-20 shots on goal and if it's one of these games I'll end up scoring about 2 at max. Now if I go balanced or cautious I'll end up with 10-15 shots on goal and score about 0-1 goals in these games. The only difference is that I usually end up with a bit more possession but it neither improves my conversion nor does it help me to win these games
  4. I have seen these statements before that it's supposed to help against defensive sides to take the foot of the paddle which makes sense, because if you push them too deep into their own half they won't ever move out and thus once you win the ball there will be no space for you to use and the higher possession will help you prevent silly mistakes and run into counter attacks. In theory and in my head it all makes sense but for some reason those games where I think it would make sense to adopt a balanced or cautious mentality it doesn't really seem to do anything for my team. I still only manage
  5. Oh that's interesting. I always thought they are a hard overwrite but good to know that they at least help mitigate the effect of "shoots from distance" for example.
  6. I don't think they actually can. I remember one of the mods on here saying that there is a hierarchy to instructions which if I remember correctly goes like this. Tactic Settings < PIs < PPMs. Meaning every setting in tactics or PIs that is contrary to the PPM of the player gets overwritten by the PPM. The same goes for PIs overwriting tactic instructions. For example if you have your entire team on get stuck in but set one of your players to "ease of tackles" he will ease of in the tackling department unless he has the PPM dives into tackles.
  7. I have to say the main problem for me is that a team can even get to 40 shots in PL games so regularly. At the current time Manchester City have 541 shots after 29 games, which makes approximately 18.65 shots per game. My Manchester United side is currently sitting at 597 shots after 20 games, which makes approximately 29.85 shots per game. Of course if you end up getting nothing out of those 40 shots it feels extra harsh. I would hope that they could town down the overall willingness of players to shoot a bit so that excellent games maybe end up with around 30 shots and the ave
  8. First of I really like how fluid the game feels during processing, no idea what happened but the entire game feels much more snappy and a good bit faster when it comes to the UI interaction and game processing of the days. Second I really like some aspects of the ME in this version and some I really don't like. On the one hand there are some wonderful moves here and the football looks a lot closer to real life than it did in other versions of the game imo. On the other hand it's a bit annoying that so many goals seem to come from standards while my team can't score from the best chances a
  9. I know this isn't really a discussion that belongs here but I also feel this is pretty accurately mimicking real life. While only 10 years back all the rage was funneling your attacks through the center, as famously the legendary Barca teams with Xavi, Iniesta & Messi did, these days it's all about the space that can be found on the flanks and in the half spaces, horizontally between CB & FB and vertically between the defensive and midfield line. I kinda like that the match engine is actually reflecting that trend.
  10. I have to be honest for me it comes down to laziness. I don't have the time to play as much FM as I used to anymore so P&P-tactics offer an easy time safer for me. For my tactical fixes I usually watch Rashidi's YouTube videos while playing FM myself.
  11. What OS are you on? Windows 10 has a tool called Snipping Tool which allows you to take shots of the entire screen or just the parts you find relevant. On MAC, you can take a SS pressing Shift+CMD+4, it also allows you to mark the relevant parts of the screen you want to take a SS of. Oh yeah and of course like phnompenhandy there is the Prt and ms paint option if you aren't on windows 10 or MAC OS. Edit: Forgot that FM has it's own SS function. See dafuge's comment.
  12. I hope they will be fixed in the next match engine patch? Will it be out with 19.3?
  13. Shot blocked, shot blocked, corner, shot blocked, shot blocked, corner, goal, shot blocked, shot blocked, shot blocked, shot blocked, corner, goal. Current ME in a nutshell. I think it was never as easy to keep clean sheets as in this version but it's also boring as hell to watch.
