Chief Scout plays the tactic with a few tweaks which may help.

I've tweaked the "sympathy_4132" tactic to try and improve the defending, The main tweak is setting LOE to standard and DL to lower. I've also tweaked some PI's and positional roles. It's actually looking very good at the moment with much fewer balls over my defence. Not sure what the policy is for sharing tweaks in this thread, but I'm happy to share it for others to test if it's fine with knap.

I would make sure you have given the tweaks a good number of games first, preferable a season.

Anyone noticed changes in perfomance with Northern Soul tactics after update?

Just about to look at it, if there is a problem it will be with WBs.

can you share your starting eleven ss

I got one A team for league (first picture) and second A bis team for all cups. I switch between them each game to keep everybody happy

There appears to be a massive problem to produce stats like this with a top side.

I'm playing as Bayern but in my 1st game post patch using the Sympathy 442 - won 6-0, 12 clear cut chances, 10 half chances.

How is this possible? Winning every game & with a GD of over 160 is so unrealistic. 

Out of interest why are most of your players showing as Alienated under the Playing Time heading?

For the alienated it s because of when i took the screenshot was the end of season FA CUP final And ECC final which my B team (cup team plays) so A team players are not happy.
I switch between two sides between league and cups.

Keep losing stupid games, even at home. Conceding way to much.

This is third season, and a pretty strong Schalke team so hoped for better.

Was slightly concerned the update might ruin Tequila Sunrise tactic which has been going well, but based on first game hopefully  not;

Yeah that Argus is definitely the most solid defensively that I have seen this year

Can only suggest dropping DL and LOE to higher and perhaps drop mentality to positive or balanced.

WULF 4132 (P112)

FM 20.2

FM20.24-1-3-2.thumb.jpg.289ad8de6f13f44c4f3b1d882f069852.jpg

Is this the result you drop LOE and DL?

Trying 4231 atm, lone striker looks way too more isolated up to the pitch while rest of the team is lagging behind, guess another year when 4231 is useless with that ME

I think you are wrong. I use now knap’s 4231 formation with minor tweak and it  works ok.

Which one either there are two; one with F9 or other with pressing forward? to me in both lone striker is way to up on the pitch compares the rest of the team...

In love with this one. Quite easily the tactic I had the most success with. Overachieved everywhere. Won the Championship with Brentford; Allsvenskan with Hammarby; Won the Danish League and got to the Europa League quarter finals with Brondby and won the Serie A with Cagliari. First season, no signings, general training, OI's to the assistant. Played every game but rarely tweaked, just changed mentality and defensive/pressing line here and there depending the opposition. Just awesome.

Auto Save, Instant Result. Nordic Soul 5-3-2 set after loss 0-3. 

It seems to be the most optimal option at the moment. 4-1-2-3 gives bad results against strong teams, 4-1-4-1 - not good against weak. 5-3-2 in this FM is very promising.

By now, only ARGUS 352 is still working well when I updated FM to 20.2……

Norther Soul is the only tactic that, so far, is not working well. However an early version of that tactic is working so hopefully tactic will be updated soon.

@knap are there general tweaks that you think apply to all your released FM20 tactics for this patch? 

Like lowering the LOE / DL ?

@Par1s hey, can you guys confirm which tactic it is? How fare are you tweaking the LOE and DL is it just one notch back?

Like with any tactic you can game manage.

Drop both LOE and DL by 1 notch

Drop mentality positive balanced

Drop mentality Defensive reduce Fwd runs on WBs

Add TW WBs defensive/no nonsense FBs untick counter press

Those change tactic from attacking to a SUS.

Hey mate. I just drop the DL by 2 notch, and the LOE by one and the mentality from attacking to positive or balance depending the next game. My team is not good as I manage Olympiakos FC from Greece but with these tweaks I get a draw away on Man Utd which is very very good result.

The tactic is 4231 formation with PF.
