  1. hey guys, starting to play the game again from now and will be looking to get the best match prep for this tactic. The match prep in the opening post is not the one I would recommend and the one in post #44 is the one I would recommend whilst playing this tactic. Will update when I have found what I think is the best. Thanks, Ben
  2. Hey guys, i'm just doing exams at the minute so I have not made any more progress with the match prep. I will get on to it as soon as I finish (end of May)!
  3. Currently playing with this match prep with this tactic. Seems to be working a treat so far. (not saying this is the final version of match prep that I believe it should be - think of it as a beta match prep - however it could be the final one)
  4. This game has placed much more emphasis on match preparation. I now consider it as important as the tactic - I WILL discover the perfect match prep.
  5. it's funny because I haven't even tried a minimum pitch myself yet. Been testing too much
  6. Okay turns out that wasn't the best match prep. I have another update coming soon regarding match prep.
  7. UPDATE REGARDING MATCH PREPARATION Match Preparation looks as follows - Tactics only, average workload. Match training/normal training all the way to the left leaving the rest after a match ticked and a rest before the match unticked. Also leave general training on Balanced with an average workload. (please use this EXACT copy of the match preparation, it works the best. Also do NOT give it to the assistant manager, this undermines the tactic): Current standings with saints using this at the start of the season. It is the BEST match preparation with the tactic. Please do give it a re-try with the new match preparation if this tactic has not worked for you before. I.e posts from Southampton and AC Milan
  8. Will be releasing an update regarding the match preparation tomorrow. In the final testing stages now. Have AC Milan top of the league and Southampton 4th in the league with both clubs having played 30ish games (AC Milan also the the semi finals of the champions league) with the new match prep. Keep an eye out tomorrow
  9. I played this tactic with a few different teams and I have noticed some flaws which is why it isn't working so well (it isn't the tactic itself. It is actually to do with the match preparation and I am a fool not to realise this. I am currently trying different variants and see which one is the best. I do agree I tried my tactic with AC Milan with Defensive positioning and my team played poorly. I then re-started the season and used Teamwork Instead and suddenly my team is top of the league half way through the season. (not saying use teamwork by the way) I will get back to all of you ASAP regarding match preparation to get the tactic working to it's very best
  10. @Butter76 sorry sir I have no disagree with you on the tweaking side. I believe the tactic is set at the best settings that it can. But ofcourse it is your game and you can do what you like on that game! Pleased to see you are enjoying it and getting some very lovely results there. @Chob If this does not work for you straight away, please be patient with it and let it bed in. It will come good, trust me. (also directed at other people if they have this issue) Also ensure all instructions are followed. @Hedges thanks, pleased to hear you are enjoying it and getting on well in La Liga.
  11. Let's get onto the key movement within the tactic which makes it so successful. The tactic plays in triangles and with a key trait I have brought in which has frustrated me so much in the past is the defender collect option on the goalkeeper. I have always wished to include this as I love the thought of playing out at the back and now I have. Lets go into an analysis: The analysis here is of the Arsenal vs West Brom game of which West Brom (the team I was managing won 3-2): The DL (Popov) regains possession now watch the follow movement of the players: Dorrens the MCL drops back to receive the ball as soon as fall back wins the ball back to create a triangle with the CB and MCL As soon as the a centre midfielder has the ball deep or non past the half way line the DMC has the option to move forward into the space the MCL has created through pulling a player towards him: Now look at the space the DMC and the MCL have created for the MCR. This is a key point in the tactic as it enables a free midfield man with the time to put in a decent through ball Here is the next vital movement which makes the tactic work so well. The centre striker is set to run forward sometimes which means he often drops short into 'the hole' which creates space behind him for the STCR and STCL which can be shown here: The through ball is then played through to the STCL as a result of the space the STC has created in behind: Who then plays a through ball to the STCR who then goes and scores a clear cut opportunity: As you can see the tactic is very systematic which is what I like the most. Each player plays for each other and there is zero option but to obey the tactics as a result of a classic tactic and there being zero external influences such as shouts effecting the way the play. The beauty of it is just ONE tactic and there are no complications as to what is better etc. My twitter is (if any of you have twitter): www.twitter.com/Brobs17 and I am more likely to answer questions relating to tactics etc on that.

  12. There was a suggestion amongst community members that it would be 'impossible' to generate a 'plug and play' tactic that works that works on the newer version of FM. I disagree entirely with this as I have made one. I have tested this with multiple premier league teams - Swansea, Everton, West Brom and Liverpool and all tests have surpassed what I expected and all done with default squads. I have always found that the premier league is by far the toughest league to test any tactic in. It is why I test there because I know once I have found what I like to call 'premier league status tactic' the tactic will work anywhere in the world. So yes this tactic suits all teams. It has probably taken me over 100 seasons to get this tactic correct after trying varient after varient which required so much patience. I continue to make tactics for people's enjoyment, so people please stop getting on my back so much, I have put alot of time into it only to make the game more fun for you guys. West Brom I really like West Brom's team this season. Shane Long as been an excellent addition along with the loan signing of Lukaku. They have developed a phylosophy of genuine hard work for each other as well as play good football. Within the game they are predicted 14th so it is great to see them using my tactic sitting on top of the premier league 21 games in. Probably my most notable result coming away at Man City. Everton Everton are a team that I do like. With little money they have generated a squad capable of challenging for the top 6 and I believe they have good players although there squad is a bit bare. Again it is nice to see them sitting 4 points clear on the top of the premier league after 20 games using my tactic. As you can see most of the difficult fixtures are now out of the way whilst I am still in every competition. Southampton The other two tested teams are available on request and I am sitting on top the league comfortably with both Liverpool and Swansea and are available on request. (I have not done screenshots of these yet and I am unsure of how many screenshots are beyond forums rules).
  13. (Ignore the fact the tactic link and tactic itself says its for 13.3.2, it IS for 13.3.3 I just forgot to change it - probably works for patch 13.3.2 too) My twitter: www.twitter.com/Brobs17 For those of you that do not want to lead this long thread outlining the detail and why it works, I have created a summary for you here (so before asking any question please read this part): Synopsis The tactic is for the Patch on FM13 of 13.3.3. Hopefully the last patch on the FM13 game. 4-1-2-3 Formation (Use this tactic for EVERY match you play, home and away, it works) Pitch Size: Minimum Team talks to Assistant Manager (this is how I set my staff responsibilities out - do NOT put opposition instructions on): Do not use shouts No Opposition Instructions Match Preparation looks as follows - Tactics only, average workload.

Plug the tactic and use all of the above instructions as soon as you start your game OR straight away if you are already in a game. This tactic suits all teams. Player requirements: GK: Jumping, Reflexes, One on Ones and Rushing out CBs Jumping, heading,stamina, tackling and marking FBs Positioning Tackling Pace Heading Marking Team Work Workrate DMC Passing, tackling, marking, stamina. CMS Pass and technique and workrate For 3 Strikers Pace,dribbling,technique, acceleration,off the ball and finishing.PLUG AND PLAY TACTIC. Do not tinker with the tacticSet-piece are set up in the tactic. Give it 7-8 games to settle in and do not tinker with the tactic or put OI's on. Although it should be working quicker than this if you have plugged it in at pre-season. Please plug and play this and do not let the computer simulate results.On team instructions I have ticked counter attack, use target man and use playmaker. It gets the ball up to the strikers more quicker by enabling this in the team instructions. There is no specific playmaker/target man so do NOT drag players into the 'playermaker' or 'target man' option. Try to have a squad of atleast 25 squad players who are all good enough to fill into the first team. And rest your better players if you have a big game coming up etc. END OF SYNOPSIS
  14. Can you give me some specific roles on defending corners please Rich?
