You know what the best new feature is this year ?

Being able to rearrange the tabs on the sidebar

Maybe, I do like that, but, for me the dividers, it will help me process all that info easier. Though after watching all the live streams over the weekend (shout out to Tom and Curtis, kept me entertained, and your guests educated me!) so many nice little things, haven't looked forward to a FM release as much in years. I even like the purple (people eater)

As someone who will squeeze as many as 40 columns on some squad page views having bold dividers is a potential brilliant little UI element.

Hah I didn't know about the spacers , I love little QoL improvements like that.

Now I wonder if custom columns will work properly in the tactics screen

C’mon, baby steps. :D

tbf you’d expect the column resizing issue to have been resolved based on the additions we’ve seen so far.

Terrible analysis by whovever that is, a true game breaking Diablo tactic would be a board full of green no matter what club was being managed not a mixture that you would expect to see based on the clubs expected performance.

OMG!! In the second example Dortmund won the league, remind me how they are doing IRL?

The amount of games won with BvD is maybe a little high but there wasn't anything that stood out as game breaking.

He's just fishing for views amongst all the other 'creators' putting content out.

As much as Teach had been brilliant in showcasing what good content creators can do, this is a strong example of someone making bad content.

Doesnt fill me with a whole lot of hope that the bigger clubs will perform better this year seeing Bayern in 3rd.

The concern is Miles will just end the entire project although at least nobody can accuse SI of cherry picking favourable content creators.

Correct. 

As a sidenote, I thought the content creators had been told to showcase the Bundesliga as part of the agreement to show off the game, which most of them have done. However, the chap above has done an LA Galaxy one, and Proudie's doing a  Portsmouth one.

It's still an Alpha build, the data won't be finalised yet I guess. Maybe that's why he couldn't say the name of the team.

It's not an alpha build, SI have even been a bit absent minded & left the beta build watermark on the version that has been shown over the last few days.

Arsenal weren't in it last season either though, so it's not like it would be because the old database is in use...

Wonder if this guy might get in trouble - he's as good as named Arsenal when he's a) not meant to, and b) it means he's either lying or there's a pretty major bug letting them get to the CL final when they shouldn't be in the tournament.

It's a beta, SI have misused the alpha build term for reasons I cannot fathom other than backstop protection had the majority of content creators eviscerated the game.

Not much they can do, if they take action the tinfoil hat brigade will claim that SI are trying to silennce someone who found game-breaking bug in FM, at best they'll just have to refute the claim using some of the points already raised here & leave it at that.

While Dortmund are 3 points clear at the top & averaging just over 3 goals a game.

That's amazing that the game engine that has been in development for the last year could predict the anomaly of Bayern not starting the season how they normally do by simming them to finish 3rd in the league. Now how do you explain Arsenal winning the CL, a competition they even shouldn't be in yet somehow won?

I think pointing out these exploits are important because S.I can improve the A.I tactical ability over time.

A.I should be parking the bus or playing  a counter-attacking system to defend against a strikerless formation

I hope the FM Staff/Coders know about flaws that the A.I suffer from.

Winning the league or finishing above your expectation in the league is impressive using a strikerless tactic. .

Winning the league on a strikerless tactic is impressive though or finishing above your expectation.

Pointing out exploits & bugs is very important but all this guy has done is publihed click-bait, there's no attempt to analysis anything or even play the matches, for all we know the assistants at each club immediately reverted to a formation that used a striker early on in each match.

As for league finishes a title contender won the league & a team predicted to finish lower mid-table pushed just over the upper mid-table range, hardly earth shattering over-performance.

He holidayed through the season, didn't actually play any matches.  And why should the AI be playing like that anyway?  I wouldn't.

Don't be suckered in by somebody on the internet calling something which it plainly isn't.  I guess the guy's just that desperate for views.

after doing quick reads, yeah it is not game-breaking, an exploitation or a cheat 

Just a tactical style that the A.I doesn't understand fully 

I would like the A.I to understand it though and to have a go at strikerless formations in the future of FM or to have a role where strikers go back to defend and act like a AM in a striker formation for the A.I to use

Strikerless formations are in modern football now, and the A.I hasn't caught up

We still don’t have confirmation that the AI they left in charge stuck to the formation and if a user wants to employ the formation for some perceived advantage then that’s up to them.

Will be more interested to read what happens when regulars I trust in the tactics forum attempt to employ a strikerless formation.

AI  tactics is more game-breaking

RB win the league !!!!

 

BUT seriously, i want to have more game-breaking tactics so that SI can really improve the engine to deal with those game-breaking tactics as to improve the engine or whatsoever

I played a strikerless formation with Liverpool in FM18 which I created because I could not get inside forwards to cut inside and shoot for the far corner. It worked and felt like a cheat tactic because Salah scored 29 goals in the league and Liverpool reached the CL finale in season 1. I was proud but then real life took over and Liverpool did also reach the CL finale and Salah scored 34 goals :)

Okay granted in season 3 my strikerless formation won the league with 107 points.....it did feel like a cheat then. 

However strikerless formations in real life are also hard to battle, Ajax showed that against Bayern a few weeks ago and Liverpool really does not play with a central striker since Firminho is everywhere on the pitch. It is just difficult to defend especially against quality teams. 

Let's all not waste our time on that Borussia Dortmund effort. SI surely will look into it I guess.

I do hope AI clubs will prove more intelligent overall and that AI tactic can also make user of gegenpress, tiki taka etc. In previous FM's Guardiola and Klopp underperform quite a bit and are usually amongst the first sacked coaches. It seems their managerial skills do not translate to tactics well. 

I have been intensly reading and watching all sorts of content regarding AI tactics and managers but have not found a positive sound. Then after watching Bayer vs Bayern and Borussia DM vs Bayer I do have a sorry that better teams seem to have very defensive or passive tactics. 

This really is my main concern for the coming FM19 career game.
