  1. If I'm in a shortlist and I press ctrl+a it only selects the players that are currently visible on the list. If I want to select all players in the list I have to scroll down to the bottom of the list, select the last player and then press ctrl+a.
  2. FMT is very unresponsive and laggy on my computer, just generally "slow." Processing time while on holiday between matches is abnormally long too. I changed the rendering from "GPU assisted" to "software" and I haven't seen a difference. I'm running 3 leagues (Italy, Spain, Germany) and the system performance was rated as 4.5 stars. Just as a comparison, FM16 with the same leagues runs fine. The dxdiag is attached to this post, here is a basic summary of my system specs: System Model: Surface Pro 4 Operating System: Windows 10 Pro 64-bit (10.0, Build 14393) (14393.rs1_release_inmarket.161004-2338) Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-6300U CPU @ 2.40GHz (4 CPUs), ~2.5GHz Memory: 4096MB RAM DirectX Version: DirectX 12 DxDiag.txt
  3. The decision to add an extra click in order to remove opposition instructions is absolutely infuriating. Can we just get the option to turn off automatic opposition instructions?
  4. Thanks. Can we compare two players regardless of position? For example, can I compare a LB to a ST? Always been a pet peeve of mine as I regularly retrain players to other positions.
  5. 1) Have any changes been made to tutoring? 2) Have any changes been made to training?
  6. Herne's 442 thread, all of Ozil's very fluid threads, and all of Cleon's ''the art of x'' threads. Thread quality (and quantity) has been lower this year.
  7. Notes would be a great addition to FMT
  8. For goalkeepers, is "rushing out" a tendency like "tendency to punch" or is it a reflection of how good the goalkeeper is at rushing out? I've seen it described both ways online in the past. Also, what exactly is eccentricity and why is it useful for sweeper keepers? Is it true that the set-piece attributes (corners, free kicks, long throws, penalties) don't cost any CA and are essentially "free" attribute points?
  9. Does 3 star potential mean that the player can be as good as my current best player for the position?
  10. Flat 343, defensive, flexible, no TIs or PIs. -------------GKd ------CDx---CDc---CDx --DWs---CMs---CMs---DWs -------CFs---CFa---CFs Probably my favourite tactic I've created. You probably have to have a brilliant front line though, the whole tactic is geared towards creating a solid platform which just lets the front trio do their own thing.
  11. Is the PI "hold position" the equivalent of setting forward runs to rarely? Or does it just prevent roaming?
  12. If you play a stand-offish counter attacking game, is it beneficial to have players with lower aggression so that they keep their shape better?
  13. What's the age limit on tutoring? I thought that players could be tutored up to (and including) the age of 21, however I've just had a 23 year old player "fall out" with his tutor. Is this a bug or have SI increased the age limit this year?
  14. Any idea on how to do it? As a starting point I'm thinking counter and rigid with play out of defence and pass into space. The biggest issue, as I see it, is the team formation. I'm currently torn between a flat 343: ---CDd---CDd---CDd WMs---CMs---CMs---WMs ---CFs---CFs---CFs A wide 3421: ---CDd---CDd---CDd WBs---DMs---DMs---WBs ---------------------------- IFs--------------------IFs ------------CFs Or a narrower 3421: ---CDd---CDd---CDd WBs---DMs---DMs---WBs -------AMs---AMs -----------F9s I've played a few games with each of them and the flat 343 looks like a fairly good representation when in possession, but I'm not getting the tracking back that I want from the two outside strikers and they stay a bit too high up the pitch when in possession too. In the defensive phase the 3421 with the AMs looks more like how Wales play. So the trick now is reconciling the two. The 3421 with inside forwards looks completely wrong in both the attacking and the defensive phases. I think that creating the defence and the midfield is fairly easy, it's a back 3 with two conservative midfielders sitting in front of it. The wing backs/wide midfielders provide width (especially Gunter on the right). Some will probably recommend DLP or regista for Allen and B2B or BWM for Ledley/Edwards but I feel that they both have very similar (and basic) roles to be honest, the players just play them differently due to their attributes and styles of play. The real difficulty is recreating the front 3. As I see it, the rest of the team is disciplined and conservative which creates a platform for the front 3 to roam around and do their own thing, which is why I initially went with 3 complete forwards on a support duty. At the moment I'm experimenting with AMs-F9-AMs and it's actually looking fairly promising. I might try fluid next, since it splits the team into an attacking block and a defensive block, I really don't want the increased creative freedom though. How would you guys implement Wales' tactics into FM? I think I'm fairly close but it still needs a bit of work.
  15. He was in United's reserves for a few years before moving to Aston Villa and then Middlesbrough in my save. Very strange.
