  1. Heya ! So I really have problems with this years tactics screen. Read carefully, not with tactics for players, but a tactics screen. So now when you are doing tactics you have all the options on the far right side, you have formation there, famili., mentality, team shape, etc. In fm 2017 you had those options on the top left, on top of position/player duty screen. So is there a way to make it look like that again ? It would help me very much if any of you have an idea how to do that. Thanks in advance SBK
  2. On the "Tactics" screen I click "Quick Pick -> Clear -> Clear Entire Team Selection" and all players are cleared as expected, the only problem is the injury icons are kept from the previous injured players before cleared. To remove the icons I have to click on the same option again and that way they finally disappear. On the attached print you can see two injury icons but no players selected.
  3. In Versus mode Analysis shows player roles, (starting window shows mentality and teamshape) Versus mode seems meaningless with these. If we put all our cards on the table, what's left for strategists? Not to mention that password protection does not work, so anyone can take your tactic... It's a shame because we have been playing hundreds of Versus matches in tournaments for real prizes since Versus was introduced (like copies of next year's FM) More than 500 tournaments since FM14 just on this site: https://gocland.com/eu Please, please don't ruin Versus!
  4. Good evening. Since the last update I can´t move my players freely in tactics screen, before I could position them anywhere I wanted but now I try to drag them and no options shows on the field. Thanks.
  5. In the tactics screen when i try and pin them so as to be able to use both the formation and player selection, for some reason im not allowed to use both of them at the same time. I have to expand and contract the formation screen every time i want to see my players. having watched videos on youtube and seen screenshots i also notice that my tactics screen is somewhat different, the formation screen appears to take a lot more space than in screenshots ive seen. I would really like to know if this is a bug or if i havent seen a button that solves my problem.
  6. I can't change my match plans (which is a cool feature I didn't know existed) to anything besides drawing. https://goo.gl/Hh79wU for a gif
  7. I am playing FM18 beta for Manchester United. In Super Cup vs Real Madrid I tried to be solid at the back, but it didn't work - I conceded 19 shots (7 on target), while my team only managed 7 shots (4 on target). I tried save/load multiple times with different tactics and every time they manage almost 20 shots. The possession is always ~30% for me and ~70% Real. Any advice on how to keep Real to fewer shots is appreciated. I would love to emulate real life Mourinho and string of clean sheets. I tried these two tactics, both pretty much same result. I tried moving mentality between Counter and Standard. I tried changing team shape from fluid to flexible to structured. Any ideas appreciated! Here is the analysis from the game played mostly with first tactics. I actually won 1-0 but didn't like how it went.
  8. hi i cant swap players in my tactics wont let me, its just stuck, and in game cant make subs and wont move or nothing
  9. TLDR note: for my most important suggestion skip to the last paragraph (Tactics). I'd like to use this post to offer some general feedback on FM innovation and maybe start a reasonable discussion on the long-term development of the FM series. I've been playing this game since the first Championship Manager versions and I'm enjoying it every year, taking the good with the bad. Hope someone from SI will take the time to read this even though it's not short Here is the background for what I will write: 1. I have worked as an IT project manager and I understand that there is only so much that SI can do from one year to the next and some features need to be worked on for a number of consecutive years, which means that a longer term vision for this series is important. 2. There is a huge number of FM fans, and each one plays the game in their unique way, and for example some of us value match day experience and match engine more, others value the idea of creating the best playing team in terms of style of play, others value long term development of a club/career/youth. and so on. Many ways to play this game, none of them wrong (it's a game). The recent trend: The trend I have been noticing lately is that each version adds more data and brings more things in the possibility of game experience to simulate a real world manager's life more accurately. I believe this is a good thing in general. More choice of customizing the game to the players needs is always good as long as there is a choice. Some of these features may be more immersive, but also can make the game more time consuming and slow down how quickly you advance from season to season. I like that a lot of the extra features can be skipped or ignored, so big plus there. Style of playing: Personally, I tend to skip a lot of the social media aspects, world news, meetings, even a lot of the new data analysis tools and focus mainly on the "important things" (to me) because that's how I like to play it. I want to cut out the "fluff" and focus on team and individual tactics, training, scouting, finding and hiring the right staff and players, developing the youth. playing the matches and building the team from season to season. To me these are the absolute essentials. Anything outside of these can be a nice addon, but not really important to my game. This brings me to raise some questions for long term innovation and development: 1. Training - not much has changed here for many years and would be nice to see a revamp of training. SI is well aware of this I believe. How can we make this more fun and more realistic, but not necessarily just more "work" of micromanaging? In today's game I like to let the assistant take care of training often since I don't want to do this constantly and waste a lot of time, but I'd like to have the freedom of creating a predefined training schedule that fits my idea of training and set it for some time periods that the assistant coach could then follow. 2. Scouting - has been revamped this year. I like the changes but I find the screens a bit counter intuitive. I know SI don't really have designers in the full sense but rather rely on developers to create their own customizable modules. Maybe hiring a UX professional who can keep in mind that design should also be intuitive could help the developers make the modules look more polished and well thought out? 3. Youth development: I think this can also be improved a lot, with maybe adding some age groups and more control over how kids are being trained at a youth academy both individually and as part of a team. One year youth intake is a bit old fashioned in my opinion, although it might make sense from a game development point of view, adding new entries to the database. Still, giving more control over youth coaching might make the game seem less of a lottery and provide a level of game depth that i think a lot of FM players would appreciate. Again, I'm not thinking about micromanaging from a day to day basis, but more of setting rules and structures of how the youth coaching setup works, adding staff and training modules for different sets of players (based on player roles) or different periods of time. I like the idea of automating some things to a degree as long as they are in a predefined way that fits my view of how it should be done. 4.Tactics - Saving the best for last here, hope someone from the SI team reads this as I think it's an innovative idea: Tactics has been revamped some years ago with the introduction of player roles. All good here, but could bring in some more innovation. I am thinking of adding a way to train sets of specific team movements, in a similar way to how free kicks and corners are being set up. Of course, these would have to be more dynamic, more motion, to practice for example how a counter-attack should be deployed, what are the practiced routes of ball and player movement in some cases. This would have to be carefully considered in the match engine, so for example, the more of a team move would be practiced in training, the more chances of seeing it put to use in some match situations that are appropriate for it. To me this would be the height of tactics and training combination with clear result in match engine experience. Hard ask from a development perspective, but far from impossible. What do you think about these ideas? Any feedback you'd like to share about these points or about the long-term direction of the game development?
  10. For some reason it's not letting me click on the players on the left side where i've marked the red box. it's also not letting me edit nothing, like trying to see the players stamina, goals, games etc etc.
  11. Hi, I'm managing Tottenham and have played about 6-7 friendlies in pre-season with 3 different formations. However, the familiarity of the team with regards to the tactics hasn't changed at all. The familiarity bar is actually not showing any progression. I recall previous versions of FM still had some bars even though a new tactic was selected. Is this a bug? I'm running on Mac 10.12.6. Please let me know if you would like my saved game. Thank you, Cem
  12. When setting players to positional or personalised instructions on the tactics screen, not all flag up as personalised. For example, I am setting personalised instructions for my full backs, some show as personalised and highlighted green, others show as positional - even though I have changed them.
  13. The user interface is attrocious. Everything is so clunky and requires so many more clicks than in previous versions. Whoever decided that clicking on the scout reports was better than scrolling through them should be made to sit in a corner for 24 hours clicking on a mouse button as punishment. I am just too peed off to write any more about this UI. If it is not VASTLY imptoved by the time of official release I am going back to FM17.
  14. Hi I need help with my 4123 formation, its pretty solid defensively, so far I've conceded the least amount of goals in the league but I can't seem to score. Even when I do win its never more than a 2-0 and its a struggle to score away. I was leading the league during the winter break but my lack of goals have dropped me back to 4th and completely out of the title race. Does anyone have any ideas as to how I can score more goals? Any help will be appreciated, I really want that CL spot Link https://ibb.co/jqUfdG
  15. Hi Guys, I am having a lot of trouble on my season with Manchester United with away games, throughout my whole season I have maintained a 100% win rate at home with my currently tactic (4-2-3-1) which I will link. However when it comes to away games I just cannot win, now when you check the tactic you will see it is heavily attacking with a high defensive line and quick tempo so I do understand it can easily be exploited, when checking the chances created I can clearly see the home team getting around 7-10 chances even teams like Huddersfield just easily cutting me apart. So I tried dropping my CAM to a CDM as an anchor man dropped the tempo to normal as well as my defensive line but again the other teams just rips me apart and I just cant seem to get any results from away games. I have never had such a bad form in FM before, in FM 17 I had an invincible season after my 2nd season with United so its so disheartening that I just can't get results away Any help would be appreciated. If any other info is needed just let me know. I play with no OI and match training is normally defensive positioning. The Goob Home V1.tac
  16. Hi, it's not really a bug I guess, but I was wondering if you could show how many goals a player has scored in the season during a game when after he scores? This was present in pretty much all the recent past FMs, and I think it is a really usefull information to show after each goal.
  17. I have a three back line, and have the center backs on personal instructions,for the position they are inn. I then change them around inside the tactic and it seems like the players that were in the center are still inn the center when they are really on the sides. I get the red marker around the position which says that there are no persons covering that position. But it looks like there are at least two persons covering the center.
  18. I don’t seem to have a way of confirm my briefing before a game. I can get my assistant to handle it or skip it. do I just continue or should there be a confirm button?
  19. Hi, Before match , when i chose player and tactics , cannot pick up any player or clear team ,and i cant see condition or player morale. The part of the screen where I should choose the players is dim and I can only pick a "quick pick". How to solve it? Thanks guys..
  20. Hi I am having the following happen - I have used 2 different tactics all season so not sure why it says that i have used so many tactics and the confidence is at 0% when I have lost 2 games all season and on the social feed the fans are complaining that we keep playing 3-5-2 which is haven't used for about 10 games in all competitions Thanks LD
  21. I have searched the forum, but I was unable to find any suggestion in these lines. After having success in FM and becoming a well-known manager, I'd like to see the AI using my tactics! It is an improvement if it is just the shape with context (defensive, attacking, etc). Why? 1. Managers copy each other a lot 2. Successful managers are heavily studied and their patterns are mimicked throughout football For instance, if I am getting a lot of success with an asymmetrical 1-2-3-2-1-1, I would like to see some managers using it too.
  22. In the tatics menu when you are picking a player to a position and you want to see the player's infomation in tha little "i" when you to that the holl "pick player" window closes.
  23. Hello, I would like to ask if there is any way to show just the average rating for the last 5 games with number of goals (and number of assists next to it in brackets)? Currently, it looks like this, and it is not very clear and helpful. Is it just my bad and is the option available somwhere? BEcause this option was always present in the past FMs. Thank you for your answer.
  24. Hi, In the tactics overview screen, when you are deciding whom to select for a given position, you can click on the player drop down tab for each position to get a pop-up with shortlist of possible players. The pop-up has a Role drop down menu in the top right corner where the default is to compare the players by the role currently selected for that position by your tactic, but you can instead list by the players' best role. However, when I select the latter, only the Role Ability stars change to match the best role; the RDS stays the same as for the currently selected role. Surely the RDS should change also? Cheers, TE
  25. Pardon me if the title is not clear. When in the tactics page, I click on a position to edit the instructions for that single position. The area that then becomes available gives me options to change the position in a drop-down menu, change instructions, and with the list of given instructions for that position further down. Any of the area around these options is "click-through", meaning that if I click in the small field between the drop-down menu where I can change position, and the change position button, I am changing tactics, because the change tactics buttons is behind the layer that the positional instructions area brings forward. In the attached image, this is between the position drop-down menu (Ving, Støtte) and "Endre instruksjoner" (change instructions).
