Lovely central play including a hat-trick from my AMC Olmo!

 

The problem is that this is not "central play", this is just the same overpowered dribbling we see on the sidelines being applied to central players since the new update.

Honestly you guys will never be happy lol :rolleyes:

It was dull boring and negative me before now it's fun entertaining not perfect me you guys still complain I don't think Sigames will ever make you happy!

I watched your video and tbh can't see anything that wouldn't have been possible before the patch. From your comment I was expecting some sort of intricate passing move.

I dont think you understand what passing football is, not what is shown in your video .

 

Why the need to acuse other people only because you are satisfied with the game?

Frustrating that centre backs never seem to advance into the opposition half when it happens all the time in real life, particularly from the top teams

You obviously haven't met my overlapping central defender yet.

a counter-argument, please, instead of a "u stupid lol xd"

fact #1: dribbles are overpowered

fact #2: in your video, there was nothing reminding anyone to "central play"

I'm not saying anyone is stupid mate and I completley respect your opinion all I was trying to illustrate is prior to this patch I had very little success playing through the middle and my am was lucky to score a goal never mind  a hatrick. I don't think these videos really do it justice as prior to the goals there is even further build up play through the middle.

 

Don't get me wrong the ME needs more work but seeing how bad it was previously and how long it has taken to get where it is now I sadly don't think it will get much better.

 

For the record I am not winning every game and have had some frustrated losses I can't make sense of but in comparison to the awful me's we've had building up to this I am just greatful for small mercies!

so, apparently, I've given up on this game 2 days before 2.4, so came back, and it is different, less infuriating. but still not significantly better

a shot from 26 meters is still about as dangerous as a shot, or a header from 6

and after watching that boring gameplay for an hour, you grind out a 1-1 in the cup against a team in a higher league. in the replay, you control the game, you take the lead, but you lose 2-1 because of a 90+ minute long shot

what do you think your rating is after a match like that? yep, a C-

there is just no fun to find in this game

 

edit: oh, almost forgot the best part: so, in the replay against the higher league team, we were controlling the play, had a load of shots, the opposition goalkeeper was having a career game, we absolutely should have won about 3-1, so after unluckily losing 2-1 in OT, my team talk option was a passionate "despite result, this was a good performance", which of course made everyone confused, and they switched off

 

there. is. just. no. fun. to. find. in. this. game.

Stuck to my 4-3-1-2 as not got the players or money to change system.

Just beat a solid Southampton side 5-0 , Hat-trick of headers from my CB from 2 free kicks near the half way line and a corner....  a out the box rocket from my LB with his 7 long shots and an actual goal from my AM who made a run for a change.

 

Other than the AM goal very little to non-existent central play.

 

Team dynamics are far to sensitive to how the team plays, 1 defeat and its like the world is ending

This is the variety of goals we have in the current ME. Sample taken from just one round of Prem games but, in fairness I've watched a lot of AI vs Ai games and this is very typical, rinse and repeat every time. Tactics don't make a difference to the type of goals scored. Too many goals from set pieces, crosses and long shots. There's simply not enough variety or randomness which results in a boring and predictable ME.

Assists

Corner 6

Free Kick 3

pen 1

cross 5

solo 1

long shot 3

Definitely agree with you that the archetypal playmaker AM -> poacher ST ball probably isn't as prevalent as it used to be, or at least how it's perceived.

That said you do see much more tight, intricate inter-play between players than you currently do in FM. No necessarily through balls, but a pass into a strikers feet with his back to goal. Or just square balls and 1-2s in and around the box to open up space, which aren't necessarily always in behind. 

I keep banging this drum but I just want players to make more risk or intuition in attack. Yeah the striker might be marked, but it doesn't completely rule out him out of the phase. You don't always need to hump it out wide just because that's where the space is. 

You don't want to see these high risk moves come off, but you want them attempted to a varying degree of accuracy depending on the player's attributes. I have no issue watching long-ball percentage football if I know I could at least instruct my players to do otherwise and watch them fail doing so.

I'd also argue the lack of distinction in attributes go further than the elite level. These long-shot efforts are banged in by every player, regardless of whether they're proficient shooters or not. Similarly the cross-field 60 yard passes are regularly completed without error by tier 6 players, which isn't right. 

 

I agree. I'd like to see more passes into the feet of the strikers and even attacking midfielders, in particular. A player such as Giroud, who's well-known for his ability to back in to defenders and play well-weighted first time passes or flicks round the corner, would not be as useful in this FM due to the reluctance to play into feet unless he has open space around him. And yeah, the lack of balls squared across the box is a well-known issue. 

I'm only speculating, but it seems it'd take more than just tweaks to get the ME to a point where these things can be possible without also disturbing the defensive balance too badly. The logic behind decision making in the attacking third seems to be, "this player is not in space, therefore I will not pass to him", whereas we want them to also be able think, "if I give the ball to this player, he can give it to that third-man runner". So we want passers to not only be aware of who they can give it to, but also where other payers might move after he's released the ball. Easier said than done, of course.

I've played quite a few matches since the update now and it has clearly had an effect on my team.

Much more of my play seems to be going wide now (no matter what I say!) and my AMC and striker are rarely involved, lot's of goals coming from corners or loose balls/deflections. I'm not seeing many long shots though, quite the opposite infact, almost never see one even attempted either by my team or the opposition.

My AMC managed lots of goals pre update (he's the main goal threat), it's dropped off hugely since, he is just not seeing the ball as much as he isn't even getting shots off or chances, same applies to the striker but he's a big lad so get's the odd header at a corner/freekick.

Noticing a lot less through balls in the centre or passes from deep into a central area or even a ball over the top to run onto. I don't feel like my tactical instructions make much difference to on pitch behaviour either! Play through the middle = 75% play on the wings, Shor passing = whatever the player fancies, Higher tempo = knock it about between the CBs and keeper for a bit before hoofing it to a player who heads it into no mans land.

I've played five games on the new patch and, to be honest, it's not much better than the public beta. My observations:

  • Players are dribbling through each other like there's no collision detection at all. It's back to pre-public beta levels.

This is the one I notice more than the others.

Still can't get over setting every passing setting to the shortest possible option only to spend the entire game watching your back four launching sixty yard long balls and ignoring better options short.

I also looked at goal distribution in Europes top 3 leagues, Premier League, La Liga and Bundesliga this season and 71% are scored with the foot 16% headers, 10% penalties and 3% free kicks. I think thats more of an accurate representation if you want to look at popular competitions 

 

Do you think header = crossing, foot = don't?

I think you must look for something like what was the moves not what body piece finished.

Alfo free kick + corner + throw-in + penalty are one thing = goals from set pieces, that also can finish with both foot/head. 

The way that the player finishes doesnt matter, only matter what was de previous moves that the goal was created.

Yes I know but after looking at the fact that 71% of goals are scored with the feet and 16% are scored with the head I don't think its realistic for Leo Messi to score 20 headers a season and 2 with his left foot. I think it does matter how goals go in otherwise its unrealistic but if you think that doesn't matter then play on

When you phrase it like that it puts into perspective the task at hand as the decision tree for each attacking moment must be huge. 

I do have sympathy for SI as you can't knock the frequency of patches over the last couple years. My fear now is they simply do not know how to address this issue of central play, rather than refuse to acknowledge it. The long balls at the start of release almost seem a compromise to remedy that. 

That Giroud example is bang on, but also applies to highly technical players who thrive in tight spaces. That reluctance to engage with the opposition really limits how you distinguish attributes like composure, first touch and strength. 

There was a post a few pages back that discussed how it feels like each player's radius or sphere of influence feels to large. Hence the reluctance to operate within less than 5 yards of a defender. Almost like the players are too big for the pitch.

Look at them goals from a Newcastle point of view, first one is the passage of play after a Throw in, with static defending, been a problem for years. Second goal the Newcastle right fullback should be closing down, he is marking no one, stood in no mans land. And the forth goal the centre back does absolutely nothing to block the shot. Its not good play, its broken passive defending.

So I won 7 straight games with Betis playing an insane all out pressing tactic which the ai cant handle .

All goals i have scored were either long shots , cross or after set pieces , not a single one after a passing combination freed up a player.  All the goals I conceded were crosses or standards as well.

 

Despite that assist locations show through ball as the most frequent assist location , makes no sense at all but it does explain why some people claim they can play with combining through the middle and score goals after combinations .

They cant, i dont think this is possible with this me and the narrow defense instructions

One mans meat is another's poison......While you celebrate what you see as central play, I can only despair at the "Zombie" defending. It's like a scene from The Walking Dead.

Played a bit this evening again for 5 matches and watch a bit AI vs AI matches but I couldn't get into game still. More like was in the mood I've paid it so I should play more. But still..

Not enough variety of goals in open play, setpieces dominate. Whether creation of setpiece and these goals afterwards result of good tactics who knows. So unpredictable.

That's a fair comment if it was my defending I would be livid but it's the AI's and believe it or not this type of dribbling happens rarely for me. We all know FM lacks in the animation stakes so in terms of taking people on this probably is the representation of that very thing and output via the match engine. I'd take this happening occasionally over complete shut out where AI defenders are op and the games are dull and boring. Main thing annoying me right now is lack of consitency from tactics, players and too many 1-1 all draws. Hardest FM yet for me.

One thing that I've felt a noticeable improvement with this game is AI transfers, at least in relation to regens. Really across the board things have improved but players move around much more realistically in the far future and this makes the game far more immersive.

I'm noticing a trend where central one-on-one chances have a high chance of being missed still, but wide one-on-one chances have a good chance of going in.

Even though both my strikers like to lob the keeper, I have never seen them lob the keeper. Ever. In six seasons I've not one single lob from anyone, so I can confidently say this PPM is defunct.

To be perfectly honest, success shouldn't be possible with a team like this and such numerous aggressive and contrary team instructions. If anything, that's alarming.

I 2nd this, it's being written up and down in the forums that AI can't cope with high pressing. So yeah this guy is basically bragging that is exploiting the match engine and try to shove his youtube show through our throats.

Dominator tactic. Is this yours or did you download it? Not that it really matters. Your players got a lot of yellow cards, and look at that intensity! Pretty unrealistic achievement but grats... I guess. You beat the ME.

I don't think anyone has been saying the game is too hard now, in fact I think people are finding the opposite!

It depends on your strategy, if you manage a big club and is looking for playmaking by the center, maybe you will find hard against small clubs, for example
