I'm late October (11 Premiership matches + 3 Europa + 1 Cup + 8 Friendlies) and still no partnerships between players have been created. I started new save with the full release. Is this normal? (wasn't like that in past years).
I have a general opinion that when players play continously at a position with same players, then they tend to form a partnership with them. Yet, in my team there are just two partnerships (bw CB and bw DMs) made even after 2/3 of the season has passed (I play Barnsley in Premier Division, FA Cup and Euro Cup as well) and I have been using the same tactic for a while now. Maybe there's some training which helps building partnership. Also how does it benefit the team like better cohesion or something?
I really like the dynamics feature and the links it has to other parts of the game such as tactics. Player partnerships are a really good thing, but unfortunately they start to build just at the start of the game - even though some players may be playing togeher for several years successfully. As posted in the FM18 beta bugs forum by @ralfinho1234, Ribery and Alaba (for example) are playing on the left for Bayern for years now and still start as an untested partnership, whereas the newly signed James is regarded to be bonded more closely to Alaba. It would add massively to the depth of the game world, if there already would be strong und proved partnerships in place. As far as I know you take the years of service at the club to form the social groups - why not also taking it and forming on-field partnerships with it?
