@Totalfootballfan Please i have a question, i understand you make tactics with the best balance for more or less all kinds of teams to overachieve. However, have you ever made a tactic that will do  even better but only for top teams because of their better players? Thank you

I'd say that when I create a tactic I always prioritize how it works when you are the strongest team in the league because any tactic that works the best with strongest teams in the league, also, works at least "very good" when you use it with the weakest teams in the league and that means you always will be overachieving and improving your team season by season when eventually you'll become the strongest team in the league.

All my experience playing FM tells me that the best tactic for the strongest team in the league is also the best or at least very good for the weakest teams in the league so I don't see point in creating tactics for the weakest teams in the league because even with an average tactic after few season it's possible to make a good team from the weakest team in any league.

Thanks Bro, may I know how many goals and assists your AMCL/AMCR could get in a season? 

i've been heavy rotating as i did't had players "made" for this position plus my main assist players are wingers. but my 2 players playing on this possition were Teilemans: 9 goals, 7 assists and Alena: 5 goals, 8 assists

this season i play Almada and Felix as main duo. so far Almada 2 goals in 2 games, Felix 1 goal in 2 games. no assists so far but will come.

Do you have any training routines for pre season to get the players knowledge of the tactic ready for the season start?

If you need to boost the tactic familiarity then I suggest using "Training Style - Tactical"

that's crazy man so you've won the quadruple 2-3 seasons in a row then? or is the unbeaten streak just in the league?

It's just the league. However annoying that is, I haven't won CL yet. Getting very unlucky year after year.

EDIT: It is currently 30.05.2026 in my game, and I'm playing Chelsea in CL final. Leading 3:0 at half-time, so I can say for a fact.. finally :)

Hi mate,

Gratz with the CL winning :)

No, the tactics ranking hasn't changed, it's just Fighter V2 is more effective than Fighter V1 and that's all

Hi TFF, I'm sorry if this question has already been asked many times (it probably has), but how do you develop your tactics?

As I'm sure you can imagine, I would prefer to develop my own tactic than just download one, so what is your process? Do you watch full matches and make tweaks according to what you see your players do, that sort of thing ?

And how do you decide on a formation, for example? How did you decide, for your annihilator tactic, to put wingers AND wing backs, which obviously seems a very counter intuitive thing to do, and something that the game's hints and tips, or your assistant manager would never tell you to do...

Hi mate,

Some things I discover when watching full matches and some things I discover when analyzing testing data results.

For example, it isn't rare when something looks like it's working very good when watch a match but after testing it on a long distance the result comes out not so good or an opposite situation happens often when something doesn't looks very attractive when you watch how it's working during matches but after testing it on a long distance it proves to be a very effective thing,

For national team, do you recommend to use Annihilator even if the player are not confident with ML/MR position or to use Fighter with AML/AMR?

I find if they have at least "Competent" rating for the ML/MR positions then you can safely use them at the ML/MR positions

Hi TFF,

First off I want to thank you for this amazing tactics. In my first four seasons with concord rangers I used CERBER V3.
In my second season I got promoted to the Vanarama National League and in my 3rd and 4rd season finished second in the league
and lost one cup final. Every season I got better players and maybe I am not lucky enough? Do you prefer FIGHTER V2 above CERBER V3?
I think my wingers are better suited for FIGHTER V2. I know you prefer ANNIHILATOR V1 but I don't like to play with 2 AMCS.

Keep up the good work!

Hey,

I'm glad to hear that it's been working good for you

I put Cerber V3 in the Archived section and I don't recommend using it.

I suggest choosing from 2 tactics: Annihilator V1 and Fighter V2

Also, I suggest considering use of 2 support tactics during matches: Shield Wall(to boost your defense when needed) and Overload version(to boost the attack when need)

I'd say if you have a chance to fit your team into Annihilator then I suggest using Annihilator because Annihilator is more effective than Fighter

I don't have a lot of good players for the AMC position. When I have the right players for the tactic then I'm gonna try Annihilator.

I'm struggling to get good results with a team like Leicester. With both Annihilator & Figther I'm always ending around my team prediction (6th,7th,8th).
When I use FMRTE to freeze condition and morale I highly overperform, I even won the league .

 

My question is why am I not able to do a bit better without freezing (like being 4th, 5th...) Am I selecting the wrong people, should I only play players with high condition? ...

Testing with freezing the morale and condition at 100% only for your team should not be considered at all, there's no use of such test because that way you are getting too big advantage over other teams in the league

 

Testing without freezing the morale and condition, also, should not be considered at all because of these:

- you can't pick the starting eleven and use it for all matches

- you have to leave picking the starting eleven to your assistant manager but he might be very poor at it

- your assistant manager will be rotating the team but he might be very poor at it

- injuries might happens and for small clubs it might be dramatical because usually they have a very short bench and if few key player got injures for a long term then it'll significantly impact the results

- your assistant manager can't handle any morale issue so that would have a big impact on the result

 

I find the most accurate way to test:

- freeze the morale and condition for all teams in the league at 100%

- pick the starting eleven and set using this starting elven for all matches

the method above reduces the randomness about 10 times compared with any other testing method
