Greatest FM myths

Recommended Posts

What are the greatest FM myths you've seen before on these forums?

My favourite is - too many injuries (despite being told multiple times that it is infact a fair bit lower than real life)

Training a player in a new position costs CA points.

If you hover the cursor over the goal it'll stop the opposition from scoring/help you score (delete as appropriate) ;)

If the op is by a user called Rebe33ca asking advice on getting her boyfriend off FM then hilarity will prevail.

Also using 3rd and final sub switches game mode to injury match 19.

Crikey where to start...

I've been FM'd bro.

The AI cheats.

The AI knows/learns your tactic.

Having a high CA player must mean he's really good.

Researchers are biased.

I've tried everything to fix my tactical problem so the ME's bugged.

Mods work for SI/have signed a contract so always shut down negative comments.

The game's too easy.

The game's too hard.

There's a secret cow level.

Is it a myth though? I remember starting my cheat file on 17 by changing nothing but adding a position or two and for a few positions the CA shot up massively afterwards.

That's no myth!!!! I don't believe you! You just have to have the right combination of players, coaches and scouts at Dun Cow FC. Or was it Doolan's Cow FC :seagull:

#Haven't realled tried everything but I am a big team so by clicking buttons should result in me winning ever match 5 nil. If i don't Si are cheating me.

If you have 30 shots vs 1 shot of the opposition you must win, otherwise the game is broken. If the opposition scores from that one shot - then the game is even more broken. (and no, it cannot be the tactics - it must be the game).

Might be more than 1 myth up there.

"That SI don't try any more because there's no competition".

Yes. Because there's no competition in what else you could do with your time these days. Just in terms of gaming you've got Read Dead, Spiderman, FIFA, COD, Fallout etc. Don't even get me started on Netflix...

The AI don't know the CA/PA of players, that is of course a myth

I've set-up (insert any posh manager/style here) tactics!

I've managed to get my team play like ManCity!

If a player never - or hardly ever - scores, then he's bound to score against your team. Usually in the 89th minute. Usually after your team has come back from 3-0 down away from home to level at 3-3.

No, I'm not angry that Sime Vrsaljko stole a point off me! :mad: :p

It is a myth.  Changing positions in and of itself doesn't directly impact CA.  What happens is different positions have different weightings for attributes and it's that which can have the knock on effect to CA changes.

1) 'Game is very easy'. Guys teach me to create tactics without exploits and effective results! Please! :)

2) 'You need very fluid shape to play in possession!'

Every new patch, even when there where just some minor stability fixes, will increase the amount of injuries.

You can only play a real career game after the third major patch in march.

"the Match Engine looks a lot better after the last update".........

Only to find there were no ME changes in said update.

I actually thought that better managers could learn your way of playing and counter it.

I'd be a bit disappointed if this is just a "myth", I can "learn" certain managers tactics and weak points, so seems only fair the AI recognises mine.

Latest Roma save had me narrowly beat Lazio with my wing backs in a back four causing havoc, next game they went with a flat three up front and pumped balls into those spaces, convinced they'd learned.

No, no no...

*new patch*

A random FM gamer: "OMG,this update made  my tactic stopped working, what do I do guys?"

SI Staff (knowing he will be ignored completely): "There were no adjustments to the match engine for this patch."

This is a myth, but truth is if I'm on a winning streak and next game is an important one I definitly play it, because there's some days where everything seems to go our way and others where everything seems to go wrong. Obviously it must be wrong perception.

But I have one, more supersticion than myth, I never shut down after a defeat, maybe because I think if I do so, next time I play I will losse all games!

Better part is when the person actually details all the things that got better as well as the things that got worse... with no update. But this is not something against who does/did that, cause we all have human bias. It's more like trying to be aware of that fact: we all have human bias.
