A little report on my progress using Raptor V4 with Inter Milan, eight seasons completed with a very good squad, still missing that Mbappe class of player to win multiple consecutive CL titles and breaking other records such as becoming invincible in the league = not losing once.

 

2019-2020 season:

- Serie A Champions

- 31 wins, 5 draws, 2 loses, 89 goals scored 27 conceded, 62+ goal difference.

 

2020-2021 season

- 2nd place in the league

- 24 wins, 10 draws, 4 loses, 89 goals scored, 30 conceded, 59+ goal difference

 

2021-2022 season

- Serie A Champions

32 wins, 3 draws, 3 loses, 108 goals scored, 23 conceded, 85+ goal difference

 

2022-2023 season

- Serie A Champions

34 wins, 2 draws, 2 loses, 122 goals scored, 18 conceded, 104+ goal difference

 

2023-2024 season

- Serie A Champions

34 wins, 3 draws, 1 loss, 101 goals scored, 24 conceded, 77+ goal difference.

 

2024-2025 season

- Serie A Champions

35 wins, 1 draw, 2 loses, 111 goals scored, 17 conceded, 94+ goal difference

 

2025-2026 season

- Serie A Champions

32 wins, 4 draws, 2 loses, 117 goals scored , 21 conceded, 96+ goal difference

 

2026-2027 ( my best ever season )

- Quadruple winners, Super Cup, Italian Cup, League & Champions League winners

35 wins, 2 draws, 1 loss, 117 goals scored 16 conceded, 101+ goal difference

 

Summary: It took me 8 seasons to achieve 95% of what I wanted to achieve which was the quadruple, the only thing I want to achieve now is an invincible season (without losing for those who don't know what invincible means. I reached 5 CL finals in 6 years winning two of them, the ones that I lost were very very unlucky, 2 final loses were on penalties to Arsenal & Liverpool. I reached #1 in the world as the most reputable team in the world and got offered the National team job with Italy, I'm currently in the Semi-Finals of the Nations League vs England. 

My profile stats: 448 games played, 359 wins, 44 draws and 45 loses. 1,221 goals scored, 302 goals conceded, 919+ goal difference, win percentage is 80%

 

Note: I don't micro-manage my team, meaning when the games are played I do my instructions then I leave the game to play by itself while I watch TV, maybe if I micro-managed my team I wouldn't lose once, but I don't like to look at the screen 24-7 when I'm playing if that makes sense.

Fired by Roma board for being knocked out of Europa League and Italian Cup despite leading Serie A by 6 pts with 9 games to play! FM is good at representing awful ownership.

Annihilator is a great tactic, let down by some (very few) away games being caught on the counter, despite starting on Balanced mentality.

Going to see how it does with Man Utd now.

@Totalfootballfan how often would it be right to give the team instructions from the sidelines?

 

I suggest doing it as often as you can

in case of red card what should be done?

For the Annihilator tactic if I got a red and I was losing then I would removed one of the AMCs and If I was winning then I removed one of the AMCs and moved other AMC to the MC position and change his duty to Support

ok then since the game allows you to give fieldside instructions every 10 minutes during the race so I will, thanks a lot!

summarizing the fieldside instructions are as follows:

- if the result is equal, you must say: BE CREATIVE;
- if I'm winning I say LODA;
- if I'm losing I say show more determination.

Exact?

Hi @Totalfootballfan 

I don't know if this is a variable you've tested with, but I've noticed that the Manager reputation has quite some influence on the results.

I'm testing a lot of tactics in FMT by holidaying seasons, and I've noticed that even with the best tactics and teams I'm not getting the same results (sometimes not even close) as to the results provided by tactic creator and other people.
When I do the same test (so reload the same save so it has the same schedule) with a manager who has the highest rep possible I'm getting much better results. I don't know if this is a fluke or not, but it's something I've noticed during numerous of my holidaying tests in FMT.

That would also explain to some extend while some people struggle to get results, it can be because there manager doesn't have the appropriate reputation. (and you always have the RNG offcourse...)

Match events such as Goals reset the cooldown so sometimes it can be used more frequently than every 10 minutes

Hey mate,

First of all, I suggesting finding out how those people played their saves to get their results, for example, they might be played in normal way not using Holiday / Instant Result and in this case there's no point in comparing your result with your result because you can do a lot more things when you play not using Holiday or Instant Result, also, they might do some transfers to strengthen their teams and so on... or they just might do some "replaying" matches after loses to make the results look more impressive :brock:

If you ask me then I don't find that the manager reputation has any influences on the results

Your situation definitely seems bugged, although depends on your league position. Many boards/owners in real life really are that nuts.

yes they are nuts often but from experience in FM, board rarelly sacks you if you can get league title. in the end that is most iportant title.

Touchline Shouts

 

Guys, I find that Touchline Shouts are important thing and a proper use of Touchline Shouts might significantly boost your results.

 

First of all, make sure that you don't delegate the Touchline Shouts to your assistant manager:

delegate-touchline-shouts.thumb.png.0f59a65fd29beaeb395f440b6f9ea809.png

 

 

 

 

 

When you are "Drawing":

When you are drawing during a match I suggest using "Get Creative" Shout by cooldown ( as frequent as you can )

touchline-shout-1.png.f085a8258389075919e7d52efbb2e8c5.png

 

The purpose of using it is getting as many "Inspired by the feedback" Body Language reaction as possible

touchline-shout-2.thumb.png.ad35def2904e9ea171bb0172829281ea.png

 

 

 

When you are "Winning"

When you are winning during a match I suggest using "Praise" Shout by cooldown ( as frequent as you can )

touchline-shout-3.thumb.png.85a7b7f817185b37df29aae3f31e7eef.png

 

The purpose of using it is getting as many "Fired up by the feedback" Body Language reaction as possible

touchline-shout-5.thumb.png.83769610392e178fd8f9f11566d4c957.png

 

 

 

 

 

When you are "Losing": 

When you are losing during a match I suggest using "Show Some Passion" Shout by cooldown ( as frequent as you can )

touchline-shout-4.thumb.png.4daab37959e8526c305d8a8699a5fab2.png

Hey TFF having great success with all your tactics.

 

Just a quick query should I pay more attention to say CA and PA ratings rather than the important attributes you have listed. 

 

For example if I had a player with a much higher CA but the other had better attributes as you had listed which should I go for?

Hey mate,

CA is just how many "ability" points a player has to spend on his attributes and it not always true that a player with higher CA is always better for some position in your tactic than a player with lower CA

For example, let's take Olivier Giroud, he is about 150CA but he would be a very poor choice as the striker for the tactic because he is very slow and his dribbling skill is very low but for the tactic you need a fast striker with good drilling so Lys Mousset who is 132CA will be much better for the tactic

Which tactic you think better for Dortmund ? And best starting 11 ?

 

Hi,

I would lined up Dortmund this way, also, I suggest buying some faster central defender instead of Hummels, he is too slow

I'd say after about 5 months of playing and spending about 1500 hours on testing, it's highly unlikely to find "something new" :)

Of course, it's still possible to make slight improvement here and there but as I said "something new" is highly unlikely

Morning TFF, once again thanks for making FM2o enjoyable again, your tactics have saved the game for me :)

Couple quicks questions....

1) Training on Cerber V3 you used to have training for cms as box to box mids, strikers were complete forward and wing backs were complete wing backs. Now it seems you just train them in the position they play, any reason for the changes ? I think you said you used the complete forward and box to box etc because it trained more attributes ? just wondering why the change ?

2) Is the change from Cerber V3 to Annihalator much more efficient or negligible ? I find Cerber V3 really good tactic so just wondering how much better Annihalator is ?

 

Thanks Again

Apologies for the no doubt silly question... Is there a simple 'how to' guide for downloading tactics and uploading them to FM on a MacBook?  I just can't figure it out :-/ I've searched around but not been able to find one. 

It tells me there is no application set to open the document.  When I choose one, it never seems to work.

Find FM20 Files On Mac

Lets jump straight in with how to find FM20 files on Mac. The library location is now hidden and you need to unlock it. So, if you want to know how to upload custom graphics, tactics or shortlists to Football Manager 2020 on Mac, you first need to gain access to the library.

1 – Go to your main screen on Mac and from the top tabs panel click ‘go’, you will not see the ‘library’ folder’.

2 – Now hold down the ‘alt’ or ‘options’ key. Tada! You should see the ‘library’ folder appear, while still holding, click it.

3 – Now click ‘application support’

4 – Scroll down and click ‘sports interactive’ and then ‘Football Manager 2020’

5 – Boom! That is how to find FM20 files on Mac?

Hi TFF

Just want to check that the player filters have been updated?  (I know that there have been a lot of tactics you have created).  In particular I couldn't see the WBL or WBR for the newest tactics and the struggling to find the right AMC to fit my team so just want to check.  Thank you, really helped me with this FM version! :)

Hi mate,

I'm glad to hear it works good for you.

The filters can be used with the latest tactic.

I've just check the filters and found WBL/WBR and AMC position in it

Yes, I've adjusted the individual training focus recommendations for all the tactics.

I find Annihilator is slight more effective than Cerber if you have players for it.
