Hey there! After struggling a bit to really get into this year's FM, I finally decided to compromise myself with a long term project: selecting a style of play, picking up a team, set up vital mentals attributes and trying yo build a squad around it. The style of play I choose was Mou's electric counter attack style when mananing Real Madrid. The speed at which the team break was something amazing. Just watch this: After seeing some videos and reading about it, I started to take some conclusions and notes of a few things that stood out for me: - The formation used was a 4-2-3-1, with a deeper set up; - Mourinho has never been known for pressing up high and this was no different. Real had a somewhat medium block of pressing; - As pressing, highs amounts of possession have never been a trademark of Mou's teams and once again that was reflected in his Real's side. Obviously they had more of the ball sometimes as they played much weaker teams, but it wasn't a concern to keep a slow, patient shor passing style; - As stated above, the pace at which the team break was WOW! And that's what I look to replicate the most; As for the players: - Marcelo had more licence to go forward; Arbeloa was more limited in his actions even though he would put a couple crosses from game to game; - Xabi Alonso and Khedira are the two roles more difficult to interpret to me: I see them as double pivots, with Alonso being more responsible with recycling the possession (he was the player with most passes per game at the end of the season) and Khedira more as a destroyer. Their offensive movement is harder to judge as sometimes Alonso went further forward, others Khedira did; Between the two, they had the higher amount of passing pretty much in all games. Defensively they we're maybe the most important part of the system: Alonso perfect positioning allowed Marcelo and Ronaldo to venture forward more and alongside Khedira, they had the biggest tackling ratio of the team; - Di Maria was a key man: he helped a lot defensively and was a great carrier of the ball, providing a lot of assistis; He's main concern was to provide witdh, even though he also cut inside at times (inevitable as he's left footed and put to play on the right side); - Ozil was given some freedom (isn't him the last number 10 on earth after all?), but he still droped somewhat deep to help in the defensive phase; His vision and assists were to die from *.* - Ronaldo was obviously a key player: Mourinho and him had a bit of a beef because Mou always wants his wide players to drop back and help, and Ronaldo was not much into it. So, he was at times the more advanced player on the pitch, always providing a goal threat with his almost perfect movement from the left side of the pitch into the center forward position; - Benzema/Higuain: they both worked a lot for the team, trying to provide a link between the attack and the rest of the players. They often droped deep or went wide to create space for Ronaldo to come into; How did I tried to replicate this into FM? (team is FC Sochaux-Montbé, 3rd season) Mentality: Counter Shape: Flexible TI's: Be More Disciplined; Pass Into Space PI's: WB-S: Stay Wider; Drible More; DLP-S: More Direct Passes; More Risky Passes CM-A: Shoot Less Often; Roam From Position; More Risky Passes; Move Into Channels; DLF-S: Move Into Channels; This hasn't quite worked out. We're getting a mix of results sitting 6th in the France Ligue 1 at the beggining of January, with a lot of inconsistency and failing to recreate the style of play wanted in most matches. My biggest problem has been my inability to counter teams that press high against us when that should be our biggest weapon! I also have problems with teams who sit too deep: we don't create a lot chances and often it's either a corner, long range shoot or a deep cross that decides the game for either them or me. My biggest concern is to replicate that specific style of play so that's what I aim for (more so than to try to solve it's limitations). Any problem you can spot with the formation, roles, mentality or shape that it's just not making the "fastest counter in the world" work for me? All help is welcome, even discussion about the way I interpreted Real Madrid's style of play as that can maybe be where I'm getting all wrong!
What's the experiment about: -A comparison in the attributes "Consistency" and "Important Matches", so to check if they do increase (or decrease) after some years, in both real players and newgens. The comparisons will be performed with the help of Genie Scout. Feel free to make suggestions as to what else could be compared. Requirements: -A long-term save, having being saved in a 5/10/15/20 year period, for example: Save A=2016, Save B=2021, Save C=2026, Save D=2031, etc. (of course it doesn't have to be during a 5-year period, 6-7 years will do. And only a save in 2016 and a save in 2024 will still do) -Changes with the pre-game editor: No (at least not after the first save) -In-game Editor used: No (at least not after the first save) -Other Editors used: No (at least not after the first save) -Please inform me if you added or removed any leagues after setting up your database and what's the deal with the "Detail Level" in your save. Why am I doing this? An experiment was conducted here, which sort of proved that the "Important Matches" attribute doesn't improve as it should be. But, since it wasn't a detailed one, I want to do it again. Could someone share his long-term saves please?
Hi guys, Can someone please tell/explain to me how hidden attributes work as in which ones can be improved by tutoring and which ones can be improved due to experience? These are a list of all the hidden attributes and I know how some are improved (i.e via tutoring). Adaptability: Presume it increases with experience? Ambition: Changed via tutoring. Consistency: Presume it increases with experience? Controversy: Can be changed via tutoring? Dirtiness: Stays the same from when regen stats are generated? Important matches: Presume it increases with experience? Injury proneness: Stays the same from when regen stats are generated? Loyalty: Can be changed via tutoring? Pressure: Presume it increases with experience? Professionalism: Changed via tutoring Sportsmanship: Stays the same from when regen stats are generated? Temperament: Stays the same from when regen stats are generated? Versatility: Stays the same from when regen stats are generated? I'm mostly interested because I have a 17 year player I'm signing from Braga who seems to have the ca & potential to be the best player on my save, but my scouts say he has terrible (red) consistency?
