I am torn between those 2 aswell but I have gone for the FMTN Grid tactic in the end as I feel it is more consistent than the FuSS tactic and is still just as good if you take away the corner exploit (which I did) and although the FuSS one works well without the corner exploit it is not nearly as effective than it is with it.

BROBS Tactic which is not on the list is the 3rd best and then I don't think anything else out there is any better than something you can knock together in 5 minutes with the tactic creator.

Has to be Grid for me. Over-achieving success at all levels, ranging from Level 12 of the English Leagues, to Arsenal + Bayern, as well as Brighton. Take the corner exploit out and you still score loads, solid defence, attractive football + results.

Yeh got to be the original FMTN Grid (I personally used the press version) - has made the game boring as it works with pretty much anyone. Tried the 4-1-2-3 Engine Expoliter by Hazza22299 as well but never got it to live upto the FMTN Grid - might have just been one of those games. No two games are the same on FM12; or at least not in my experience.

FMTN Grid was the best for me until I tried 4-1-2-3 Unbeatable Engine Exploiter by Hazza22299. I don't care if he built on the success of previous tactics - it did the trick for me.

stand off.....BTW i`m in 2016 and have just recently took over the Belgium national job and used this tactic in my first game, which was an away friendly in Romania.

I was missing a few top players such as Kompany,Hazard and Vermarelen and still managed a 7-1 win with my CF scoring 6 which was his first goals for his country!! (and not one was from a corner)

They had qualified for the Euro Championships before i took charge and have been paired with Holland,Portugal and Belarus...will bhe interesting to see how this tactic goes on the international stage vs sides like holland,germany,italy and spain...

.i`ll find out in the morning as i`m now of to bed so i can get up in the early hours of the morning to watch the olympic opening ceremony :)

I have never tried the Grid - but looks to be winning so far! Currently with the Hough 4-2-1-3 and its probably the best of his tactics so far!

if you take out mr hough's 4-2-1-3 and the exploit by Hazza which were all based on the Grid tactic, it would be miles ahead!!

i vote for Grid simply because of the amount of goals you score and concede. Over the 60 games in my barcelona game i am averaging 4.5 goals per game and only conceded about 12. Messi with 4 games left is on 160 goals!!

for attractive play it has to be tic_tac by Magic but just not potent enough up front. (for me anyway)

Based on the results so far this thread should really read "which tactic exploits the match engine that much that makes the game utterly pointless and of no fun"

If SI clamped down on such crazy individual instructions so that the game remained as "real tactics" every single one of the sliders set on these tactics would read unrecognised.

My Favourite is naturally my own ones and most of all my Deep 442 for underdogs ( with which I destroyed the EPL with Villa first season, no transfers) ;D

I'm not voting, because I'm not sure it's as clear cut as 'one tactic to rule them all', but these are my favourites (in no particular order).

1. Bootroom Vengeance.

Advantages

The most successful tactic I've used when it comes to overachieving with a relatively weak team.

Disadvantages

Relies heavily on the corner exploit.

Apparently a variation of one of Mr Hough's tactic, so not very original.

Uses extreme individual slider tweaks, which doesn't feel like a very realistic way of playing to me.

2. Knap's 4-4-2 MC Treble 106pts

Advantages

Wins very consistently against inferior teams, so great for winning league titles when you're against an AI team that hardly ever drops points.

Deals out some real hammerings to weaker teams once fully fluid.

Better than Bootroom Vengeance when used with top teams.

Uses only team slider settings, so seems like a fairly realistic way to play.

Disadvantages

Relies heavily on the corner tactic, although not quite as badly as Bootroom Vengeance.

Not as good as Bootroom Vengeance when used with weak teams.

3. JP Woody's Wenger Style (4-4-2 Version)

Advantages

Uses default player roles with no slider tweaks, so feels like a very realistic and enjoyable way of playing the game.

Uses near post corners, but not an extreme 'everyone lurk outside the box' exploit like the other two tactics.

Disadvantages

Good, but not as effective as either of the above two tactics, in terms of purely overachieving with a given team.

Which one of the above I use depends on my mood generally.

If I am playing as a weak team and want to progress as quickly as possible at any cost, I use Bootroom Vengeance (although, this is almost never how I like to play these days).

If I am playing as a top team and want to play fairly realistically, yet ensure that I almost certainly bag the title and over achieve, I use knaps 442 106pt mc treble.

If I want to play the game more realistically, and gradually build my team around a tactic, I use jp woody's wenger 442.

Oh… and if I'm feeling bored, inspired or adventurous, I'll create my own tactic (heaven forbid!).

[EDIT] Oh, and I must confess that I haven't really tried the popular Grid tactic properly (simply because I find the 4-1-2-3 shape too unrealistic). I did give the stand off version a very brief 10-game test with Liverpool once, and the results were excellent, but I've used Bootroom Vengeance for many seasons, and with much weaker teams, so I'm not in a position to make a fair comparison.

Mr Hough a couple of seasons ago and now FMTN Grid Tactic prove that wingers are dead in FM. The 433 no wingers just dominates the game, the only way to get crossing to work is from corners, I have tried believe me, but nothing!

It's true that all of the so called 'supertactics' seem to be narrow 4-1-2-3, but wingers can still be pretty successful if you judge them in more realistic terms.

Take Jordan Henderson, who plays as MR (winger, attack) in my Liverpool team for example. There are certainly better wingers than him on the game, yet he consistently gets good ratings and plenty of assists from crosses.

Millsinho, were those stats achieved with my BR tactic? Specifically the 2016-17 season as I notice that that is the season you posted on my thread mate. Those stats look good for a winger, and if so, I'd be pleased!

Yes, the 2016-17 was played using your tactic, so he played as AMR with the cut inside instruction then which is a little different to a 'traditional' winger. If you're interested in any of my other player stats from that season, I'm happy to go back to your thread and post more info so just let me know.

The first 5 seasons were played with JP Woody's Wenger Style 442, where he played as a default winger attack, so those seasons are most applicable to what I was getting at in my previous post.

In season 6 I used knap's 442 106pt MC treble, where he played at MR again, but knap's instructions have the MR as more of a playmaker with through balls set to often and crosses to rarely, so that's a bit different again.
