  1. Hi, I'm currently managing Brentford and i have brought in a few players. One included is Marchetti from Nancy. When i bought him he was 20 Determination, and whilst all attributes are steadily increasing at a healthy rate, his determination is randomly decreasing? It's the same with Rico Henry, my LB. He has decreased from 14 to 13. Bear in mind that i don't have them in any mentoring group where a Senior player has a lesser Determination Attribute. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
  2. Hi all, looking for some insight into the impact of certain Pro & Con player traits that appear in Coach Reports. Focusing on comfort in "big matches" and "consistent / inconsistent performer" traits, but also interested in any related or mitigating traits. This post is a little bit long, but please bear with me! Any insight, tips or advice greatly appreciated :-) Background: Playing a local co-op save with a friend on FM15. We meet once or twice a month for 3-6 hours of game time. Currently half-way through our second season. We try to play as quickly as possible, as game time is quite limited. Started in League 2 in England, my friend manages Burton Albion while I took the reins at Tranmere Rovers. We both won promotion to League 1 in our first season, my friend (Burton) storming League 2 with 111 points, while I guided Tranmere to 2nd with 100 points. In most saves I am guilty of not paying close attention to PPMs or mental traits such as comfort in "Big Matches" and "Consistent / Inconsistent Performer". I generally decide my "best eleven" through attributes and CA star rating, keeping an eye on Work Rate and Determination (see screenshot 1), tweaking the selection based on how players perform over time. I am currently in 1st place with 51 points, while my friend is 2nd place with 50 points. A few weeks ago we were 12 and 10 points ahead of 3rd place, but we have both experienced a poor run of results and are now just 6 and 5 points ahead of 3rd place (Sheffield United, 45 points). I have lost 6 of my last 12 league games, so I took a detailed look at Coach Reports for my First XI and Bench, and discovered the following: ------------------------------------------------------- First Eleven GK: Good for Championship, Professional. RB (WB-S): Decent for Premiership, Driven, Professional, Explosive Pace. Doesn’t Enjoy Big Matches, Inconsistent Performer, Competitive Streak, Poor in the Air. CD-D: Good for Championship, Professional, Good in the Air. Fairly Slow Player, Competitive Steak. CD-D: Good for Championship, Consistent Performer, Professional, Good in the Air. Fairly Slow Player, Competitive Streak. LB (WB-S): Good for Championship, Loyal, High Work Rate, Good Team Player. Poor in the Air. CM-D: Good for Championship, Athletic, Professional. Uncomfortable in Big Matches. CM-S: Decent for Premiership, Consistent Performer, Good Team Player. Doesn’t Enjoy Big Matches. RW (IF-S): Leading Championship Player, Enjoys Big Matches, Professional, Great Pace. Lack of Strength, Lacks Athleticism. CAM (AP-A): Good for Championship, Professional, Great Pace. Doesn’t Enjoy Big Matches, Fairly Inconsistent Performer, Lack of Strength, Lacks Athleticism. LW (W-A): Good for Championship, Off the Ball Movement, Intelligent Player, Jovial Character. Doesn’t Enjoy Big Matches, Lack of Strength, Lacks Athleticism. AF: Leading League 1 Player, Enjoys Big Matches, Good Team Player, High Work Rate. Poor in the Air. Bench 3rd choice CB: Good for League 1, Enjoys Big Matches, Very Consistent Performer, Very Brave, Good Team Player. Competitive Streak, Fairly Slow Player. 2nd choice RWB: Good for League 1, Enjoys Big Matches, Strong Player, Athletic. Fairly Inconsistent Performer, Fairly Slow Player. 3rd choice CM: Good for Championship, Enjoys Big Matches, Consistent Performer, Complete Role Model, Professional, Very Brave, Good Team Player. Lack of Intelligence, Lack of Movement. 2nd choice RW: Good for League 1, Ability to Dribble, Skilful Player. Lacks Athleticism, Lack of Natural Fitness. 2nd choice CAM: Good for Championship, Enjoys Big Matches, Professional, Ability to Spot a Pass, Intelligent. Fairly Inconsistent Performer, Fairly Susceptible to Injury, Lacks Athleticism, Lack of Strength. 2nd choice LW: Good for League 1, Fairly Determined, Fairly Intelligent, Professional, Off the Ball Movement. Lack of Strength, Lacks Athleticism. 2nd choice ST: Good for League 1, Loyal, Great Pace. Poor in the Air. 3rd choice ST: Leading League 1 Player, Relishes Big Matches, Consistent Performer, Professional, Resolute, Ability to Make Right Decision. Poor in the Air. ------------------------------------------------------- Observations - 5 of my best eleven are either 'uncomfortable' or 'don't enjoy' Big Matches - 2 of those 5 players are also "Inconsistent Performers" - 4 of those 5 players happen to be 4/5 of my midfield (4-2-3-1), which is a bit worrying - 4 of my 7 league losses so far this season have come against Top 6 teams: Burton (2nd), Sheffield United (3rd), MK Dons (4th) and Swindon (5th) - In our 9 losses this season (7 league games, JP 1st round, League Cup 3rd round), the 5 players who do not enjoy big matches achieved 9 good performances from 38 starts, approx 1 good game in 4. - 5 of my bench players either 'enjoy' or 'relish' Big Matches - 3 of those 5 bench players are also "Consistent Performer" or "Very Consistent Performer" - We have the 2nd best Goals For, 3rd best Goals Against and joint-best Goal Difference in the league - Player performance for my First XI ranges from 7.0 - 7.6, but we have been pants against Top 6 teams ------------------------------------------------------- I could be wrong, but it feels like I have built a team of flat-track bullies, dominating weaker teams but struggling against Top 6 opposition Can anyone tell me... 1. What does FM consider to be a "big match"? Does this just apply to Cup games and matches against a club's rivals? Would it include games against clubs with significantly higher reputation (all competitions)? Does the game consider that we are 1st and 2nd, making games against title and promotion rivals "big matches"? 2. Do traits such as "consistent performer", "professional", "determined", "resolute", "brave" or "high work rate" compensate for "does not enjoy big matches" or "does not feel comfortable in big matches"? 3. Are the effects of "does not enjoy big matches" and "inconsistent performer" negligible if the players are considered good Championship or decent Premiership players, with 3.5+ CA? 4. Am I better off dropping some/all players who do not enjoy big matches for some/all of the highlighted games on my schedule (see screenshot 4)? Is it worth dropping 3.5-4.5 star players for 2-2.5 star reserves, with weaker attributes (but good for League 1) but stronger mental traits preferable? 5. Does "inconsistent performer" cause poor performance at random, or is this most likely to occur against strong opposition and/or big matches? 6. Would "fairly inconsistent performer" mean something like poor performance in 33% of games, and "inconsistent performer" 50% of games? Or is it completely random? 7. Do "inconsistent performer" and "does not enjoy big matches" fade away naturally with experience? Does tutoring remove or improve either trait?
  3. Why do newgens do this? From what I have been able to research its tied in with the squad dynamics, so that should a player become a team leader in the dressing room for example, then your youth players are susceptible to having their personalities changed to match that of the leader? I understand that in theory this sounds like a great idea... But would a player really drop 10+ points of determination, in one go?!? Now I know some will say 'Yea its great, so realistic...' but I just cant get behind it. Its an awful addition to the game. I play to have FUN bottom line, and yes I do enjoy as much realism as possible, but on this occasion it just plain old sucks. It can instantly destroy that Driven wonderkid that you have become attached too... Not only that is seems to happen far too often, in my current save (a server game with my brother) he has had two newgens do this in one season.... And to top it all off the guy they are being influenced by is out on loan, hes not even at the club!! Simply put, im not a fan of the feature, and would ask that some form of option be present to 'enable/disable' the feature, or simply remove it all together!
  4. I'm wondering what is the difference between the two dialogue options when asking a player to tutor another? 1. As a senior member...i'd like you to tutor xxx as i feel you can help improve his game 2. As as senior member...i think it would be beneficial if you were to take xxx under your wind and mentor him off the pitch My logical understanding of this would be that the first option has a chance of teaching him additional moves like "places shots", while the second might change his personality to closer to the tutor's? Is this correct? and are there other differences here? Why should not a player be tutored by someone with a lower determination? I don't get this at all as realistic in the real world.
  5. Some players show a sharp red arrow decline in their determination attribute, may someone answer what cause it decreasing, and how to prevent declining or even enhance this attribute? They are mostly young players, am I paying them too high salaries (~30 to 80K )?
  6. I'm interested to know how others handle their Teamtalks, pre or in match. I play with Sheffield Utd, and we've just got into the EPL. My thinking is that I never want the players to be thinking about how good the opposition are, so pre-match I make it all about 1) Getting out there and impressing me OR 2) Carrying on from where the left off in the last match. During a match I either: a) encourage - If we're 1-0 up or 0-1 down, because If down a goal, the players know they need to score, so if they're doing the right things and creating chances I reinforce their efforts. b) Demand more - If they're playing lazily, or making silly mistakes c) Show some passion - If we're getting tough tackled by the opposition. At half time. Teamtalk: I'm not happy with your performance - Almost always Positional Teamtalk: I have faith in you, get out their and make a difference - Almost Always. At Full Time: a) Well done - If we win comfortably b) You were unlucky - If we loose or draw closely. c) You weren't good enough - In the rare occasion we loose to a really bad team, or by a big margin. I always use either Assertive, or Passionate and the players I pick almost always have high determination. The thinking is that I'm constantly telling them they have more to give, essentially to get them to believe in themselves. What are other peoples methods?
  7. So my team only has two players over 10 determination. And those are both only 11. The rest of the team is 8 or lower. Five NINE of them are 4 or less. And all the training reports are showing a decline in players determination. And some other stats too, but everyone is dropping in determination. And the reports are saying "The squads less desirable characteristics have had an effect lately". Now, also looking at my squads personalities shows me that 18 of them are balanced. Four are fairly professional. And one is fairly loyal. Now my question is, is this due to player personalities? Or is it the low overall determination? Can I bring in some old vets to tutor with high determination to correct this? Or is it because I have an x number of players with less than perfect personalities, i.e. balanced, and I should look to start moving them on and bringing in other players? I've never ran into this before. And I'm slightly confused at which of the two is actually causing it. I usually only sign players with good personalities and decent determination. But this is the squad I just took over, and I am outside a transfer window. And I'm slightly concerned that this could be a potential issue for the rest of the season.
