  1. Thanks for the SHOUTS. anagain I don't know what I'll do yet. If theirs anyone that uses multiple tactics and different ways to use them I'd love to hear from you Anyone got at least 3 different formations they do?
  2. Thanks for reply, on average a 2 or 3 season save to be fair. but thats at least 2-3 weeks anyway, i rarely holiday. I was wondering when you look at the opposition do you tinker your tactics to beat them or do you go with what you know? I've trained all age groups up to Junior IRL so I've always had a feel for tactics, but FM is another matter. I also didn't mention different teams and diff tempos, Barca playing fast is one thing but trying it Fulham is another. Any recommendations for a 2-3 season save? before FM21
  3. WARNING! This might be a bit of a read! I didn't buy FM19 or 20 but I won 20 off SI last August 19 and I didn't mind the first match engine. Actually liked it a lot. I ended up breaking my laptop screen and couldnt fix the resolution( long story bla bla bla) So I saw a thread this morning asking for the best FM20 tactic, I saw a few replies and 2 or 3 people said there is no such thing. There is no plug and play anymore. Fair enough. On FM18, the game I always play I have 9 dif tactics with many different permutations and mirrors in those systems. So my default ta
  4. Don't know if this is the right place but here goes? I had the demo since the start and have seemed to only update to match engine 20.20 but the file isn't in progfiles(x86)/steam/fm20/data etc only got 2000, 2001 and 2010. Shouldn't it be 2020 now? Started new career and that says version 20.1.2, which file is it? No longer says demo in my game so taught it must have updated or will I need to re-install?
  5. Few Outsiders not mentioned.. 1. Paulinho from Vasco De Gama, Scores lots and is versatile 2. Trincao from Braga, With Training can become the best IF in the World 3. Svendsen from Malmo(I think), Ready from the start to be a squad player anywhere 4. Coman (Steaua), Just like #1 5. Melegoni (Atalanta) Love a Deep Lying Playmaker, he's your boy for the next 15 years
  6. Sorry I didn't know where to ask this? So started a topic/debate on Holidays instead. So for the last few FM's Holidaying can has been the same old crap. I'm playing the Full Fat game and every so often between games and International breaks I take a Holiday for a few days and go browse the web while the game is processing or just skipping to the day before the next game. Simple enough, although you ran the risk of being offered a new contract without wanting it, leading to an instant committal which must be Illegal. I never signed the damn thing! Why did no one ring me? or a player throw
  7. Any oi's and what are you training for matches?
  8. Since 18.3.3 came out this is my first time playing a second season after bouncing around trying different tactics. So after being promoted from the English Championship I had a horrendous run of playing all the so called big 6 in my opening 6 weeks, but when playing UTD I noticed Sanchez had lost the number 7 and now he's 13 and Lukaku no.9 now 11 but UTD had bought Cavani and Icardi and sold Martial for their numbers to be a little understandable but Herrera got 10 and Ibra went to 30. If your keeping count they now have 5 top strikers for 1 spot. Just played Tottenham and beat th
  9. It happens every year now, 16.3 and 17.3 did the same. I had been using wonderful 433 Tactics in those then the M.E. changed and made tactics like these impossible to get working again. I feel like they did something to boost full backs to counter the 3 ST Tactics and it's had a knock on effect. I'm currently using a 442 plug and play and deep WM'S are the business. With the tactic i'm currently using I rarely need to change between mentalities, its just balanced and attack. I know you are very proud of your tactic and you should be and It will probably be the first i use on FM19 but for
  10. I'v been playing again and playing away with balanced/control its working a treat and like it was before. I think at home, I'm going to start using control instead of attack again. How is anyone else experiencing the game right now?
  11. Its mainly how the team attacks that's the problem, the players who attack are vastly under-performing. There's a new tactic on this forum, which is exactly the same as yours but with a regista, 1 BPD and the width is Max Wide, with whipped crosses and Its only control and attacking wonderfully. Although I'd prefer yours as I understand what to do perfectly.
  12. Has 18.3.2 affected this tactic Kurt? Just completely stopped working since my laptop updated.
  13. Found a better way, go to the squad screen and there's a little tick on the left before the players name and scroll your mouse up or down then right click.
  14. Still works great for me on 18.3, but I do shut games down now to save energy with my own waste time tactic. If anyone wants to use it http://www.mediafire.com/file/ls5jst7sriracj9/WASTE_TIME_19.fmf Wide players take short corners so make sure you have a player over with him and for some reason the wide men swap wings on throw ins, so put them on their right side and striker on near post. As per normal if playing vs 2 strikers use a half back.
  15. Was just wondering how long others where taking per season now I'm at 9 Leagues, 20 Divisions 60,000 Players, 40 hours per season FM17 had more leagues and around 24 hours per season
  16. Only 1 loss all season and that was the first game of the season vs Real Madrid in the Super Cup. Unbeaten in the League, FA Cup, League Cup and Champions League What a Tactic...
  17. Just ticking dribble less in the team instructions, moves the ball around faster and doesn't waste possession.
  18. The CMa is doing way better now with that little tweak, mine has gone from averaging 6.9 to 8.2. Great Shout
  19. No I just done what you said with the old ones, have updated now and admittedly I'v made too many signings. Going to start a new long term career now and see where how far I can go.
  20. I'm getting some terrible performances from my full backs though and defenders in general are making loads of mistakes.
