FM 20 Tactic List and FM 19 Recommended Tactic List

Recommended Posts

Yes you can post tweaks in this thread or PM them, although not much time today.

The best way to try with players is in a match just change them over in a match and see what you prefer and what gets results. I often change players over during a game if not scoring. In a match you can be much more proactive. This is why I recommend mentality matters,.because all these small changes can give you an edge.

The tactics creator was set up to do this original so you could easily change from Defensive, counter, control, attack and overload. The idea behind automatic is that the duty or runs change when you change mentality. These can also be applied to different formations maybe a 352 as a control and 424 overload.. There are many ways to make tactical changes work for you in a match which may not as a P&P Tactic.

OXFORD best???

I have used a fair few of Knap tactics since the new patch and for consistency, the Sicilian 4222 is the best, I know MrL test says differently but for me Sicilian was. I have better than the Oxford tactic.

As always the test can vary player to player much like anyone saying they've a wonder tactic that won everything when they play as Man City or Liverpool , go figure lol team worth hundreds of millions wins games shocker

 

Everyone is always searching for the golden bullet that'll win the lot with their own favourite team when in reality even in the old days of plug and play tactics using ME exploits folks could still screw it up lol

 

Sicillian was by far and away the best most consistent tactic i've used recently and now having a season with the tweaked Paris one

Oxford is much better than Sicillian. more less conceded and better in away games

Actallly, I`m not so sure. They changed the ABB on the teams. Underdog is now not 120, but 140. And subtop i 165.
My underdog team would never have 140 abb. More like 120. And sub top 165, well barca is 168... And that is with Messi at 194 to pull the avr. way up.

So I actually trust FMBase more atm.

Best tactic i have tested so far after the patch.

Yes i have only played 10 games but still.

Smashed Atletico Madrid 0-6 away, they did get a red card but i was already up by 2 goals then.

And do also have a really hard Group in the champions League too.

Really good tactic knap :P

No transfers.

I have looked at ARGUS 352 pts on both MR L and FM Base and the pts totals were about same, I would say both tests are valid but both are producing different results.

FM Arena is a fairly meaningless test as they use very high reputation or very low reputation, which distorts how the AI will play against test team.

@knap Just out of curiosity, do all your tactics have defined and tested set-pieces included too, like corners etc?

Stargazing uses hit early crosses and is based around that TI.

TIME avoids using PIs as I thought it may be useful for those with tablets.

SPs need to work with tactic and therefore I use a variety of set ups.

Cheers, noticed you have a few of them set to "short" so wondering if that was because it's effective?

I don't think it is any better than other set ups but is reasonable, many find it can waste a lot of corners.

I don't trust any tests this year. MRL, FM Base and FM Arena. No proper tests. According to MRL best tactics is Argus and Oxford. I've tried both, but none of them are as good as other Knap tactics.

Especially the FM base is a complete comedy. I think the FM arena is the best. there are at least the results and the table is shared.

FM Arena is based on an unrealistic reputation adjustment, that will seldom be met in FM.

If you look at results the underdog team actually wins league and performs better than favourite.

The favourite does not relate to sub top but favourite in a match.

I don't know what they are doing or how accurately they are analyzing. but 442 beowulf is definitely not the performance at MRL. I've been using your tactics for 2 years.
I think the two best tactics you've done this year are beowulf 442 and 4141 (I don't remember the name 4141)

there are two versions which one to take?

@ilyes92300 the only difference between the two versions is that one version uses IW and the other one uses IF. So choose what suits your team better.

fm base absolutely nonsense. But this year I can't trust MRL. because beowolf is the best of all tested tactics there but MRL says Oxford or Argus is the best! :)

If you want a favourite guide just use me Lpool pts which will put BEOWULF 442 top, which I know works with Arsenal and Spurs.

Underdog I would use best away tactic for underdog test on MR L or FM Base. Unfortunately it is not easy to ascertain. Underdog on MRL would be 4132 on FM Base Sicilian on both ARGUS 352.

Part of the problem with the testing of tactics is that folk just tend to think you can plug n play. This is no longer the case.

Mentaility plays a massive part of how a team will perform.

I'm using the stargazing tactic with two underdog teams but have had to tweak it because the urgent pressing as well as a very high defensive line is just a recipe for disaster that just results in a massive gap for balls over the top to be knocked in to. Hard tackling doesn't work for me either.

I agree. and unfortunately too many cards come out.

Testing at Mr. L right now is very slow.

I think testing tactics right now, for me, is completely useless since 20.3 is near the corner and ME will change.

After March will have an idea how tactics in FM20 scores the best; both from FM Base or Mr. L

As far for FM-ARENA, it's based on reputation only. Unreliable.

I have to agree. Since FM19 it's a combo between CA, Reputation, PR (Player Roles), Mentality and Formation.

The introduction of Defence Line of Engagement and Defence Line has completely mess up the game, because you don't have the option of vertical and horizontal lines on tactics. Just saying.
