  1. I like to edit the view to include PA, CA, Assists and Squad status, while removing Tactical familiarity, I have tried a variety of different edits and it does the same. Sometimes it removes just the Position/Role/Duty automatically, then when I collapse the view to show the tactics editor and expand it back up, this happens. This makes the view really irritating because I like the information all on one screen but it's not possible to have due to the bug. Screenshot 1: The normal Selection Info Screenshot 2: The edited Selection Info (I never removed Position/Role/Duty) Screenshot 3: The collapsed version ignores the changes Screenshot 4: I reopen the previous view and it erases the screen, sometimes even just having a purple block with literally nothing in it
  2. There are 2 problems about columns which you can see on the videos. First, Sliding columns got so big problems. It can slide to left but can't slide to right. Sometimes there isn't any problems, sometimes there is. Especially when u add new columns, it's becoming problem. Second, Because of sliding problem, I deleted some columns. And after it, I couldn't add new one. Normally, I could add columns freely. But that time, I couldn't. 1st. 2nd
  3. When auto sizing columns when on tactic screen - when full tactic is showing, it doesn't correctly autosize to fit in information when tactic is showing. The auto size only works on information when the tactic is minimized. Currently using resolution = 1366x768 Also when manually trying to re-size columns, it widens the area causing a scrolling bar across the bottom
  4. On the player's tactic screen, in a 3 man midfield (central mids) I can't choose roles that I could in previous games like Carriello or Mezella. Are these roles only available in another midfield configuration (2 in midfield? In a different tier?). Thanks, Owen
  5. When making changes to tactics during a game, no 'Confirm' button appears on the tactical screen itself. Instead, you must return to the pitch view and confirm in the top-right.

    This may be further down. But I have previously saved tactics I have made on 1 save. When I load a different save and go to load custom tactics they were not in the files.

    Opposition Tactics Grouping

    Summary: Opposition Tactics Grouping Description of Issue: On previous FM's it's been easier to use tactics against opposition teams. Grouping the players would be so much easier,such as on FM18 you could click on one player and hold the "Shift Tab" to group select several players making it easier to have them all on Weaker foot for example. Now you have to click on every single individual player and it's a lengthier solution as appose to previous methods. Steps to Reproduce: Play a match and go on opposition tactics, try to select more than one player. Files Uploaded to the SI Cloud Service: Opposition Tactics Grouping
  8. Small bug that isn't a major deal, but is something I noticed. When creating a second tactic involving a different formation to the first, it doesn't save what positions you put the players. So it then swaps them around incorrectly: When I switch between the formations as seen below, Dier is pushed to AM with Dele behind, whereas it should be how is shown in the 3rd image. However, when I switch them to the correct positions, it then messes up the positions of the 4-3-3 and so it repeats.
  9. Changing one thing produces automatic and unwanted changes. For example - I have a "Cautious" tactic if I change this to "Attacking" then Attacking width changes from Narrow to Standard, Shorter Passing changes to Slightly Shorter, Slightly Higher Tempo changes to Extremely High. Similarly, with no obvious pattern to it, sometimes changing one role or position in a tactic alters the mentality from Flexible to Structured and I have not been able to find any button yet to change it back.
  10. Not much to explain, just watch the video; If there's a scrollbar for position role description, if you hover a role without one even once you just won't be able to reach it... Bug demonstration video
  11. When i add a new column on team selection side, all titles are lost and unseen. But when i click over there, it sorts by title.
  12. I've played through half a season and tested different styles. It seems to me that most of the assists this year come from crosses, just like FM18. Whether it is central players drifting wide to put a ball in, an inside forward/winger cross, or a full back, every time. That and set pieces really seem to be working for me. I'd say 70-80% of assists so far come from crosses. I have seen screenshots from other players suggesting the same thing. I'd like to hear other players feedback before posting/moving to bugs.
  13. Summary: Tiki-Taka style instructions displayed incorrectly. Description of Issue: When selecting Tiki-Taka the shorter passing instruction is listed twice on the in possession overview. If you edit and select a different passing style and then re-select shorter passing it corrects the display issue. Steps to Reproduce: The issue can be recreated anytime the Tiki-Taka style is selected. If you correct as above, it resets to the incorrect state if you change to a different tactical style and then re-select Tiki-Taka.
  14. Just watched the Alpha play through on YouTube. Thanks to the team for sharing it with us, was great to see. Thought it would be good to put my thoughts/observations in a thread for people to comment on and critique. Brief summary of things I noticed: Positives The new tactics system is an easy "guide". The styles of football could be replicated in previous versions, if the right instructions were used. Having said that, I do like it more now. I did not see any of the transitions in play - maybe I will be proved wrong when I see more comprehensive highlights of the match engine. Perfect for the new player, but has lots of depth for those FM old-timers. Training looks interesting - more emphasis now on dynamics and specific attribute growth etc. Probably the biggest and best change. VAR - its fun, and will be good to see where it applies. Induction - not relevant to me, but good for new players. Bundesliga licence - don't usually play Bundesliga, but I may do it this time around. Licensing is always good for FM. Constructive Criticisms UI - I wish they would focus less on things like colours and just make it easier to navigate. I have never had an issue with the new UI (since the sidebar) or colours. This version will have far too many hidden pages/too much info. I think the game needs a big cull of unnecessary pages, graphs, etc. I don't care for features like different colours for ratings in game. In my opinion, it just seems like wasted time where SI labour could be used on bigger and more landmark features. Match Engine - I play on 2D Classic, but the 3D looks virtually the same. I would rather have fixed goalkeepers and player animations etc than ball physics. Stadium upgrades are welcomed. I would love to one day play with the 3D engine all the time, but it does not feel real enough for me at the moment. Dynamics - I really did not feel a difference between '17 and '18 when it came to squad dynamics. Everything that affected dynamics did not change (conferences, feedback, mentoring), so the experience was not translated to the player. All I do in FM 18 is see it on a new screen and use the same responses/team talks when there is an issue. Are player promises fixed? Press conferences - all the same except for faces and background, people will get bored and leave to the assistant. Before match plans - I think many players will leave to the assistant. No real changes except a reskin, although it does look simpler in parts. Pre-match/half time talks - they all generate the same responses as FM 18. Players will learn what and when to say something. Transfers - no mention whatsoever of AI transfer dealings and fees etc. has the finances section been changed in anyway? All in all, with the exception of tactics and training, SI seem to be re-skinning and fixing issues that were created by the previous iterations of FM, rather than revolutionising the match engine, which has to be the next focus IMO. They listened, and have fixed the glaring gaps that FM 18 has. It may seem as though I listed more negatives, but I will be buying the game nevertheless. Let me know your thoughts.
  15. As the final step of the tactics induction, the assistant will ask you to select delegation of tasks. This interface seems to have some weird delay to the highlighting showing that you actually activated the button you clicked. I've tried to capture it below. To clarify, i click the option, but it only shows as highlighted almost a second later. Making it feel very unresponsive and weird.
  16. As you can see in the attached screenshot the tempo I've selected doesn't show up as a TI since it's the default but it's displayed as "Slightly Higher", if I increase it, it goes to "Much Higher" and "Extremely High", this seems a bit off for me.
  17. So have been watching the new feature videos. As my tactical nous is a bit hit and miss to say the least, I've always hoped for a bit more help from within the game. So I'm delighted to see you can now set up Gegen Press, Tiki Taka and so on at a click in this year's full version. Is this feature to be included in FMT? hope so...............

    Fm18- Spurs

    So I've started a save as Spurs on the beta and just curious what tactic other people are using for Spurs and signings made? Personally I think the only formation you can play at the start realistically is 5 at the back with 2 wing backs due to the lack of quality wingers and the injuries they have at the start (Think Lamela, Son, Llorente etc) Because of the above, I've started off with a 5221 narrow formation with Vertonghen and Alderweireld as BPDs and Sanchez as a defensive CB set to stopper. This is because I want him to almost move forward and act as a DMC since i've got 2 in cm, one of which being Wanyama who is a BWM so will engage higher up the pitch and possibly leave space behind. I've signed Nainggolan as a quality passer in midfield to link during transitions and his long shots are a threat against teams that sit deep. Plus he allows better quality on the bench Dembele) Nabir Fakir is my second who is a great signing imo. He gives a bit of extra quality to play 4231 as a RW, he's happy to be rotated and gives good support for Kane/Llorente as a striker when required. My final signing was just a CB from Coruna who's buyout is about 4.5m and offers better back up that Foyth first season. Further up the pitch I'm playing Eriksen as a AP support so he stays between the lines threading balls through to Alli (set as shadow striker so he's closer to Kane and also a presence in the box for crosses) and Kane. Team instructions are normal closing down as I want them to keep their shape, defend higher up with tighter marking and keep possession as I want to build from the back using the 2 BPDs and fairly wide width so that a) wing backs can push up wide since they are the only width I have and b) hopefully stretches play to give Eriksen and Alli more space since they will be my chief creators. I'm interested to see what others have done and any problems people foresee in the logic behind my set up?
  19. Hello everybody! I recently purchased FM 18 after I skipped 17 and 16 and I'm trying to adapt to the Tactics features in terms of aligning everything and suiting it to my team. I chose a relatively easy team - Chelsea, and I've gone through one season with them so far. Nevertheless, I can definitely say I'm struggling. I finished 3rd last season, with Man City and Utd are 1-2, respectively. But I guess my main concern was about tactics - I just don't know how to use it well. For the new season, I adopted the following tactic as the main one (see picture attached). I have doubt about using Griezmann in the right wing, and about taking full usage of Nabil Fekir at that very low position. In addition, I want to make sure I fully use Alex Sandro's qualities. I would love to hear any advice and comments on my tactics. My main role is to learn the game now so anything would be appreciated. Thanks
  20. Hi Si forums, this is my first post. I am currently in my second season with Leicester. Last season we played an aggressive 4-3-3 which saw us finish 4th in the table after a remarkable turn of form at the back end of the season. I had planned to stick with this tactic but after poor opening results, Mahrez picking up a long-term injury and my inability to acquire a suitable backup I felt that I had to change the system. Here it is below: Player Instructions are as follows: GK: Distribute to Centre Backs, Back 4: Close Down Much Less, DL: Cross Aim Far Post, RW: Roam From Position, Mark DCL, STC: Mark DCR I have been struggling all season as shown by these results: Away form has been extremely poor, no away clean sheet in the league so far, even after shifting 3/4 of my budget on Romagnoli. We've scored 6 fewer goals than this stage last season but conceded around 15 more. Here's the team report: Nevertheless, Vardy is banging them in, Arthur is my favourite player on this year's FM, he is a beast, and finally Gray is doing fine too. Nobody else is performing well and most are performing below expectation: League table isn't bleak but I am 6-1 to be sacked, didn't meet League Cup expectations and they went me to obtain European football for next season. I am still in the Europa League, last 32 vs Kyiv. I have about £25m in the bank to spend in January if need be. Mahrez is 7 weeks to 4 months away from returning to full fitness. Here are the attributes of my players currently: I am desperate to keep my job and push on in the 2nd half of the season. If you were me, what would you change? All advice is appreciated and I thank you for reading this post.
  21. I've just sold my top scorer for big bucks and his replacement is a hot prospect with some pretty good physicals (which makes him very well suited to Northern Ireland, where I'm currently playing). The only problem is that I've just realised that this new striker has the 'Static Target Man' PPM and I'm not 100% sure what this does! From what I've read, it's sort of a goal hanger style PPM which wouldn't be too bad, but other sources have suggested that it also reduces the chances of the player running onto balls as they prefer the ball to be played to feet. If the latter is the case, it is a big problem as my tactic does rely on a striker who's a sort of Jermaine Defoe style player; an out-and-out striker who's willing to run onto through balls and loose balls. Will this PPM make this player unsuited to the role I want him to fulfil? If yes, is it easy to train a player out of this PPM?
  22. 3-6-1 is one of my preferred formations, though I haven't tried it with my Palace side yet. And I'm talking about the version with 2 DMs, 2 WMs and 2 AMCs. On the other hand, the long-ball style is also something I like. At some point, I'll certainly give this tactical combination a try, but before then, I'd love to hear what you think about the following idea for implementing it: TMs SS APMs DWs IWs VOLs BWMd BPDc CDd DFBc SWKd Standard / Structured TIs - go route one, lower tempo, play narrower (just these 3 for starters) SWKd - long kick, distribute to TM VOLs - get further forward (if available) DWs - hold position, fewer risky passes IWs - get further forward, pass it shorter, fewer risky passes SS - max closing down, pass it shorter TMs - max CD, hold position, move into channels APMs - close down more That's basically it. So, if you have any suggestions, questions or experience with this or similar system, all ideas are welcome
  23. Hi all, I’ve been a long time reader of this forum and looking to get more involved in tactical discussions. In doing reading on the forum I’ve managed to get a lot greater understanding about tactical settings and how things work and I think I’ve been able to definitely simplify things to understand how it all works. Hoping to have a bit of a discussion here about something I’ve been encountering on one of my saves lately. I’ll give a bit of background first. I’m playing as Leverkusen in a Pentagon save on FM17. I’m about 10 seasons in so none of my players will be familiar to anyone so will dispense with all the discussions around them unless required. I’m currently working with 3 tactics, all of them designed to play to my strengths or a specific play style: A 4-4-2 narrow diamond to play with my good strikers and talented central midfielders, a flat 4-4-2 with fast wingers, and a defensive 4-1-2-3 (aka 4-5-1 DM) when I’m trying to play a low-risk style of game against strong oppositions. It’s this last tactic that I’ve had trouble using. This is the tactic, and the style of play I’m trying to achieve: In Defence: - Defend with a medium-low block as my defenders are quite quick but good in the air so can cope with a bit of space in behind. Normally I defend on higher mentality tactics with a medium-high block. - Bank of 4 defenders with a CDM screen to have players behind the ball. - Close down a normal for the Defensive mentality; players won’t get pulled out of position and keep their structure. - All midfield trio get involved defensively due to support/defend duties. In Attack: - DLFs drops deep to link midfield when in possession, before moving into box late to become a goalscoring threat - IFa’s are main goalscoring threat, cutting inside onto stronger foot and with strong goalscoring skills (repurposed strikers) - APs pulls strings as the team’s playmaker from midfield strata. - BBM moves between lines to support midfield and attackers - FBs’s overlap a bit, but not too much to be caught out on the counter attack I’m one of the better teams in the league having finished 2nd last season and 3rd the season before, and there’s about a group of 5-6 of us who are on about the same level. I only tend to use this tactic in away games against the bigger sides, but find that they tend to flatten me. I’ll admit I haven’t done an in-depth analysis on specific games as some of the folks on the forum do, mostly because of time constraints in my normal life. But anecdotally I tend to concede multiple goals, have fewer attacking chances, and have lower possession in a tactic that is designed to be reasonably cautious and with a formation designed for defensive stability. Some of this I put down to the top-level regens in this game often being a bit stronger than players at the start of the game (Schalke’s striker is probably the best striker I’ve ever seen in FM), as well as playing against strong teams on their home turf. But it’s not because these teams are better than mine on the whole; last season I lost 4-0 away to Dortmund (eventual champions) using the 4-5-1 DM in the league and then later in the week beat them 8-3 at home in the cup (they scored 2 consolation goals) when we both used identical players and my only change was to my more comfortable narrow 4-4-2 diamond. But in general has anyone had similar issues using lower mentality tactics? I’m fully aware that the tactic is not going to be one to blow teams away but in using it I’m trying to be a good, compact defensive side but end up being hammered in most of these games I might play a few more games with it over the next few days (coming into a new season on the save) against some lower class teams and see how it goes and post my results. If anyone has any advice or discussion about this that would be great as well. TL;DR: I’ve tried to build a tactic that is defensively sound, but find myself getting beaten easily by similar strength teams with less possession and more opposition chances. Wanting to see if anyone has had the same issue and have a discussion about it.

  25. So I was adding players to my set piece takers . It worked for the few players I added initially. Now whenever I add a player- he is added as "Franco Baresi". And then I am unable to add anymore players to my set piece taker. As per the first screenshot, I am adding xhaka as a corner taker, when I drag and drop, his name changes to " Franco Baresi" and then he is not actually added. When I click on Franco Baresi, the screen goes to the set piece taker before Franco Bareis ( in this case, for the corners, it goes into Jack wilshere's profile. Help! Thanks.
