  1. This, I believe, is the whole mantra of Simeone's Atleti (combined with a world record amount of shithousery)
  2. Cheers. thx for the feedback... a very thoughtful answer (as one could expect :)). But to ask you for a couple of very precise answers; Is it reasonable to expect these kinds of settings to work just as good with traditional 3-52s, 4-4-2s, 4-3-3s, 4-2-4s and 5-2-3s or other formations? Does the effect of a lower LOE bring just as much to a formation with 1 forward as one with 3 forwards, for instance?
  3. Having read this through in more detail, I'd like to ask you if you have tried these tactical settings with different setups? I have a love for playing a compact 4-4-2 in combination with this kind of style, either with 2 DMs or with 2 CMs. But many of these choices should work with many setups, and I saw a video from @Rashidinot too long ago playing a low block using a 4-2-3-1 with Nottingham Forest. Do you think the tactical setup would increase/decrease how much effect the tactical choices will contribute? And if so, which ones?
  4. Great piece, and galso great advice for weaker teams with some fast players. You could rename this 'Play like Italy in the world cup'
  5. So, basically you call it a 4-5-1 even if you move a player from AM to F position? If so, then that's where I got lost In my head it's not a 4-5-1 any more. Also I would think the game interprets such a move as a change to another formation(?) - strictly speaking - but of course both player and team should be able to cope pretty well as the changes are minimal. Keep sharing thoughts and ideas for the good of the community, please
  6. Hi, I have read most (maybe even all ) of your tactical articles on the Dictate the game platform. They are great and can work as a history lesson just as much as an inspriation on FM tactics. But I don't understand your line up of the 4-3-1-2 here. How can this be called a version of a 4-5-1? I thought one must have 5 players within the DM-M-AM areas for this. And also in the positions AML + AMR you should not use the IF role, as that c(o)unts a forward, not a midfielder. (Sorry about the word play ) Any thoughts on this?
  7. Also consider taking your Line of engagement down one (only one) notch to achieve increased compactness and the opposition could leave you more space to counter into. Plan who in your team should be the focus of your counter attacks. As you have a TM and the Wat on the left you could experiment with focusing play to the left side for periods of a match. Or switch the TM to the other side to set him up against a lesser quality CD.
  8. I'd say it adds realism (and a challenge) to the game, and clubs say churning out U21 internationals get compensated handsomely when losing players to tournaments.
  9. @alian62 informed (thx!) that it is available in the editor. So this means the feature is in the game, but must be set prior to starting a new game. This works for me, so I do not feel it necessary to request this. But could you publish a knowledge base sharing information on such features? I often use guidetofm.com for anything tactical/player role related. Information SI Games could/should take more ownership of in my opinion.
  10. Wow, I could not have hoped for a more clear and explanatory answer than this I'd label this as a missing part in the game. Can a moderator comment on this please? Is that you or can you alert a relevant colleague @Neil Brock?
  11. Hi, does clubs get money when having to send players to tournaments with the internation squads during the season?
  12. Yes, that is my take on it as well. When he acually is an important player for me, why should I lower this level and risk upsetting him?
  13. In my save in Sweden the season top scorer odds have just been released for season 2. The player being odds favorite is this guy: He's a young exiting prospect, and he played 23 games last year, scoring 10 goals. A comet in Swedish football. At my club - IFK Gothenburg - I have a Swedish DOF and 4 Swedish scouts currently. With the recruitment staff being Swedish, this also means that their knowledge about Sweden is at a maximum. How can it be that the knowledge on this player is only at 50%? This makes little sense to, as my own team played him twice last season in
  14. This is not necessarily a bug, but I don't know where else to post this The scout responsible for transfers and contracts advice at my club, has just given this recommendation: I do not understand the logic behind this. Can anyone please explain? Should agreed playing time levels really be made based on such a proposal?
  15. Hi, my findings are that the valuations of these two players are now £375 and £575K respectively after the newest update. So quite close to being the same as when the beta was released.
