I deeply believe that this year has a lot of incongruence. I tried a lot of tactics, with different teams, against diff rivals in different situations and it's the first time in 18 years that i can't plan the next game.
It doen't matter if you play at home against the last of the table, you can't play Offensive 'cos they will have 2-3 chances and score every time. You can't play against 4-5-1 (with 5 flat midfielders) unless you play deffensive. If you win 5 games in a row you must be prepared for a next round of 4-5 disappointing results with very low performance. Just when you team learn your tactic they start to play worse. Your key players aren't capable to make 3 games in a row with good performance. Playing against the worst team, offensive, with three strikers, can finish 45 minutes without any shots on goal?. I't absolutely ridiculous
I know that it's not important to shoot more than your rivals to score more goals or having more possession, in real football. The real thing it's make key chances and now I suspect that in this game the more important thing to do it's to have a good morale (before and in-game).
i tried with Celta Vigo, Coruxo, Dundee Utd & Blackburn Rovers. Yeah, not big teams, but before this year you can't trust in a base tactic to ensure you've got certain control over situation. Now it's imposible. With Rovers, the best team in Championship by far, I played with deffensive, counter, standard and offensive approach with low results. Yes, I win a lot of games but with an absolute control over the situation, without possibility of modify things once started the game. The AI make key chances and I don't know how to do it to win games.
I really believe that SIgames can't ignore this kind of constructive criticism 'cos can be frustrating for fm series fans.
