Hello guys. I am a long term fan on the football management genre and have been playing football manager series for many years now. I've always been having fun - transform some youth players into stars, find some exiciting prospects where nobody would look, make your striker bang 50 goals in a season - you get it. Over the years things have changed, I have a job now and I can only get some hours of playtime here and there but I still have fun. I've been playing the touch version only for a while now (maybe since 2014) as it helps me feel I get more progress without having to invest so much time into it. Anyways... this year I feel competely disgusted by the game. I am struggling so hard at it that I even switched to some older versions just to fulfill a bit of my cravings. Strikers don't score, midfielders shoot the ball into the stands everytime they get the chance as they are ********, goalkeepers give the ball to the opposition and so on. I've been browsing the forums for solutions, watched youtube guides - everybody has suggestions - increase this, decrease that, use this role, use that role - tbh nobody has any idea what they are talking about - the game just seems that it's in a quantum mechanics state where you never know what to expect. Now I do get that realism requires complexity and that is a characteristic we really appreciate about FM but why on earth do I have to watch the game in full mode my whole preaseason just to be able to understand that two of my roles don't work well together. I've been looking at analysis - literally nothing useful there - plenty of buttons and checkboxes but nothing relevant really. Who has time for this? It seems to me that the game is becoming more and more of a full time job instead of something that gives you some joy. Regarding tactics - I am a guy that thinks procedurally both in real life as in games. It works - you know that if you follow this approach you slowly get the results you want. But in this year's version of the game the tactics are utter nonsense. You need to spawn 10 save games or hit reload 10 times on a match just so you get enough tweaking variations that you start to understand the underlying mechanics. And that does not even work the next game - you need to do that again and again. And keep in mind I am playing the touch mode... So, since this thread is about tactics, I would really appreciate some procedural approaches on how to get the best tactics and roles for your team, how to tweak from match to match and how on earth to get good stats out of your best players. Cheers, Robert
