Nice, is that using V2 fella? Also how did you get 58 games out of Suarez? Do you have a special training setup? Any tips on team talks?

No specfic training at all. I just train each player to the position they play

And you got 58 starts from Suarez? He must have been shattered before most matches? I'm lucky if I get 40 starts at over 95% from my players.

Haha, it does seem a bit odd. The fitness thing as well, but fair enough. Well done.

What makes me suspicious about his results with Liverpool is the In-game Editor button in his screenshots.

Depends if he used it or not, the Game Info screen will tell us if he did. However, I doubt it.

To bad people can't just believe what others says. But good of you that you want to proove it.

I believe you mate, in my save. My complete forward scored 59 one season and he was only a 3 star player. Both my inside forwards hit 30+ that season.

I have Aleksandar Mitovic as my complete striker who bangs in the goals. I got him for only £12.5m 2 years ago and now he is worth £49m!! I would defo recommend him to anyone.

I dont use OI's and i just use the training which my coaches suggest.

I have been playing FM for years and have had some great tactics but this is by far the best i have ever used

Just started a Skrill South with Dorchester save and I'm looking to completely clean out the rubbish and replace them with players not requiring wages/low per game bonuses and ideally youngsters with decent physical stats. Are there any filters for this tactic which would work to give me a basis for that goal?

Share this post

scouts and random filters. When i start a BSS/BSN game, i like to use:

10 marking-tackling for defenders

10 passing-decision for midfield

10 finishing-composure for att

10 passing-crossing for wingers.

Just wanted to add to this thread saying that this is a brilliant tactic. I started a new game with took over Finn Harps in Irish First Division midway through the season when they were in 5th place, by the end of the season ended up 2nd place and earned promotion to the Irish Premier League.

The next season we were predicted to finish 12th in the IPL and get relegated. I finished 2nd in the league, earned a Euro Cup spot, and also won the Irish Senior Challenge Cup.

Used v2 of the tactic and followed the instructions, pitch size standard, and I set my match training based on the scouting report recommendations.

Unless i'm missing something, the screenshot shows a game date of August 2017. That's three seasons, not half a season

Just tried v2 for three games in total with my Schalke. Been playin with another tactic during preseason but decided to give this a go during my first competition match.

I played a lower league team (cant remember The name) and won 9-0 :) alright result, but in all fairness i should get 6 or 7 goals past that team anyhow.

Went on to play The two first games in The league and thats when The craziness started. I beat either Wolfsburg or Werder 6-0 then went on to beat another team 7-0! But then played Leverkusen away, made a couple of changes in The startig XI and lost 4-1 away.

Will keep you updated on my progress

Remember that away games in the Bundesliga is very tough when you use attacking tactics. I spent 3 seasons before I won the league with Schalke, using the previous version (marcelos tweaked). Because of the tactics German team use at home your wingbacks will constantly be caught out of position.

This just does not work for me. The defense is a shambles and constantly getting ripped apart on the counter. It's like a hot knife through butter! and I have a very strong side.

After getting promoted with Nottingham Forest i finished number 7 in my first Premier League season with this tactic. But in my second season i´m struggling...I concede an awful amount of goals, especially against the top 6 teams. They just slice through my defence like butter. I just know that when facing one of the top side using this tactic, i don`t stand a chance.

Anyone else experiencing this? And what would your suggestions be for shoring up the defence using this tactic?

So far i got to say this is the bread and butter of FM14.

V2, dident lose a SINGLE POINT in all competitions with my Reinforced Juventus team.

REcommend HIGHLY Ruben Garcia as IFL in this tactic as he is pure share quality and will raise in value quickly so that you can sell him after 1 season with huge profits.

Tevez was also fantastic behind the striker.

Well done Steaton! Keep it up!!!

You guys, its a flaw in the system so keep 2 other similare formations as 2/3 tactics to prevent the AI from cracking the tactic. if they do then well u got to scrap it for a season until Ai gets brain bashed with another tactic they home in on.

Terrible tactic. You nailed nothing. Getting beaten with Hoffenheim and players as Rafinha, Grealish and Romero. Disaster.

Wrexham now in Championship.

Started with the 4-4-2 Emergence and won some but lost alot. Then changed back to this V2 and have been rising to 2nd place 2points behind nr1.

Lost to Arsenal in the semi-final in the league-Cup and have just played 5-5 with Man C in the FA-cup in the quarter finals (started with a bang and lead with 2-1, then fell behind 2-4 but finished strong and scored the equalizer late)

For away games just change mentality to Defensive with V2, seriously you don't stop attacking, but solid... I use Defensive positioning for match training on full 3 days with day off after match and general training as balanced average, this shows light overall. Therefore I show all individual training as heavy. Working great home and away

In v2 one of the midfielders is advanced playmaker instead of deep-lying playmaker like in v1. Is this intentional or supposed to be the same?

Hi,

What version and match prep/training are people finding most successful?

Want to use this with united but not sure which approach to take.

Hoping Marcelo will swoop in with a monster version :D

I use the v2 version and i promotoed to the 1.HNL (Croatia) with NK Zagreb. But there is too much conceding goals, especially away. Is there any tweak for away games? If i not score so much i would loose the games, last away defeat was 7:3 -.-

tip o' the hat to you sir. very attacking football that seems to produce the goods. although kind of get roughed up facing similar tactics away from home. still this tactic has made fm2014 fun to play and for that i thank you. as well, the dude that came up with the donny tweak, same kudos. :applause:

I was wondering the same thing? I'm not a tactical genius, but isn't it important to have one midfielder be defensive (i.e., DLP - Defensive)? Could this be why certain users are conceding a lot of goals?

I think I'm going to try this tactic, but making that one change.

Not an tactical genius either. I'm AC Milan. Very mixed feeling about the tactic! 10 matches, won 5, draw 2 en lost 3. The lost games are Catania 0-1, PSV 0-3 and Barcelona 0-8!! Defending was dramatic, i have to say against Barca i followed Dargone lead to change advanced playmaker into dlp. The losing was very frustrating, especially againt Barca, how effective they were. Keep playing this tactic tough, i see potential.

Edit: must say, it start to getting better. Changed some players, change back to advandced playmaker. Won 4 matches in a row, including Napoli.

Edit 2: Back to frustration again. Last 6 games, won 1, draw 1 and lost 4. Last match lost againts Udinese with 4-0. Included a screenshot. It's dutch, but its in the same order as english.

So far working well for me with the earlier mentioned tweak. Early in the season, but undefeated so far including a 2-0 win against Man U to nab the Community Shield (second year in a Chelsea save).

Has there been another update?

As Screaton's tweak has worked beautifully starting from Skrill South, i'm now in the Championship and its falling apart.

All my players are of the required standard
