  1. I've been trying to wrap my head around it for a while now, but I honestly can't seem to understand some things, no matter how many guides I read or watch. I just can't understand what exactly fluidity represents in a real world, how would a manager go explaining this to his players? I've been playing every FM since 2014, so I'm not exactly new at the game. I understand most of the things very well and have played through a few successful saves, but what bothers me, is that I simply feel like I'm not using fluidity to it's fullest potential. Even if I'm getting the results, I feel like I've no clue about the fluidity part of the tactics at all. I've been trying to read THOG's The Mentality Ladder: A Practical Framework for Understanding Fluidity and Duty, but since I'm not a native English speaker, I just get lost in a wall of text full of complex words. I understand the part that the in-game description says. The more fluid the system, the more players will be involved in certain tasks. I don't however understand when and why would one change the fluidity, for example. The way I choose it, is by simply counting how many generalist/specialist roles I have in my formation. But how would for example a Very Structured system work, with mostly generalists on the pitch? Or the opposite, a Very Fluid system, with mostly specialist roles? For example, I can see why one would want to change the fluidity to Very Structured with an offensive formation (eg. 4231), while chasing the result in the last minutes of the game. You don't want forwards to be tracking back too much in that case, you want them to fully focus on getting the goal. Or again, to Very Structured with a defensive formation (eg 451), while trying to save the result in the last minutes of the game. You don't want the defenders to venture too far forward, since you only care about not conceding anymore. But why does it matter whether you have mostly generalist or specialist roles in your formation? Fluidity can't be just a "bait" for the game to see whether you will choose the correct one, depending on your player roles. The way I understand it, maybe you'd prefer more Structured systems in good teams, where you trust individual players to carry their tasks out more and more Fluid systems in worse teams, where more teamwork is required to get the job done. But then again, it's recommended that players in Fluid systems have good mentals, so they can understand what to do when and Structured systems require more specialist roles. I apologize if any of this sounds stupid, I'm just interested in learning the FM, but no matter how hard I try to understand the fluidity, I end up realizing that I probably don't have a clue about it.
