  1. Played a few games, there seems to be more Football being played in the final third, instead of constantly looking for the ealy ball. Still massive issues with corners, though,
  2. The match engine seems deeply flawed. They can't even say it's a corner 'exploit'. most of the goals are from big CB's from the edge of the 6 yard box.
  3. Currently averaging more than a goal a game from corners.
  4. At least xG has context though, what with it being based on actual shot data. Plus it's actually quantifiable, what constitutes a 'clear cut chance' in the current set up? 50% chance of scoring? More? Less?
  5. The game really needs some sort of xG model. It's been used by analysts for a long time and is now commonly used in punditry. Counting shots, as you point out, can be mis-leading and the 'half chance' 'clear cut chance' totals are vague and seem slightly random at times. All shots in the game are mapped so some basic xG forumula shouldn't be difficult to implement. This could then lead to a (much needed) revamp of th analysis features whch currently is a bit of a token IMO.
  6. In general there are way too many blocks, which results in more corners. It's too easy to work the ball into wide, crossing positions. The AI balances this by turning your attacking wide players/full backs into ditherers who dwell on the ball and defenders into superhumans. It's also too easy to get into shooting positions. The AI balance this by turning by turning defenders into last ditch, blocking machines. Throw in the amount of direct passes and you get a very ugly game to watch.
  7. According to the change list, there are no Match Engine improvements in 19.1.3 which I find staggering.
  8. I was really enjoying the match engine in the ealy Beta versions. It was a bit too easy to score from crosses but it still felt like what I put in on the tactics screen was being carried out in the ME. However, I genuinely can't stand this version and wont be playing unti the next update.
  9. Not sure what's happened to the passing. Every game resembles a L2 hoof-fest. Despite tactical instructions to do the opposite, Pass completion hovering late 50%/early 60% in games between big teams. Anyone else noticing the same?
  10. I've not played a match since the update but prior to this, every match seemed like a game of ping pong. Constant early, forward balls despite playing a short passing, patient tactic. Most recent game was Liverpool v Arsenal, with both teams' pass completion in the low 60%.
  11. Hy knap, probably the wrong place to ask but do you have any 3-4-1-2 tactics? I'm sure I saw one (WOF) but can't find it! Cheers,
