Tactics Rocket's Simply Simple


 Share

Recommended Posts

So Nearly 3 years after going AWOL from Vibe and FMM, I've decided to come back to the game and the site and wow how I've missed it.

I have been sitting thinking about how I should come back to the site for probably a few weeks now and well. What's better than posting my bang average mediocre tactic that will get you sacked by November.😃

Decided I would sim a season into the future and choose a team that was promoted into the VNN and just see what I could do. With barely getting through a season in the past 2/3 years I was definitly not expecting much. However, for some reason I'm clearly still just an absolute god at this game and my status of GOAT (which is definitly 100% accurate ;/) is still in tact. Anyway enough with the rambling, you're all here for 1 thing aren't you?

Rocket's Simply Simple

Before I start showing off my piece of beautiful art, I wanna give a heads up and say that I've not tested any other varients of this tactic. I simply made this n went for it.

I named it "Simply Simple" because when you look at the roles, instructions, formation, etc, it looks extremely basic. With barely any modifcations it turned out pretty well as you will see in the results.

imageproxy.php?img=&key=29906ed9e9968481Well who doesn't love a 4231 eh? I did say it was gonna be basic. If a basic white girl could be a formation on football manager, it's gotta be the 4231. 

For the backline I've went for the simple 2 cb's and 2 fb's. Playing in lower league I dont have the fastest or most technical players so going for this line-up was probably best for the tactic and for my will to live. I didn't see the point in trying wb's as I'm playing with wingers and also bpd's as in my opinion they're a death trap in LLM.

The midfield is as basic as they come. 2 cm's, 1 ap and 2 wingers. The 2 cm's are the absoulte rock of this team. I remember reading a post from somewhere on the site about how a cm is the most underrated role on the whole of football manager, and I have to agree. Everyone see's all these fancy roles with the "Roaming Playmaker" or a "Box to Box Midfielder", and well of course they're good but sometimes people look at them as if they're just a better cm, or maybe that was just me lmao. The cm's held this tactic together, defensivly they where solid as I didn't notice them pushing up to far what was nice, as we would of got mauled if they where far to high up. However it's not like they weren't there. They where close enough to the AP so he wasn't stranded by himself. In the first season my AP managed to get around 20 goals and 20 assists which I know is nothing compared to some people on the site but hey, atleast it wasn't nothing :). The wingers were decent aswell, both contributing to around 20 goals each in the 2nd season.

Finally we have the Poacher! Absolute beast. I used to always be AF > P. However this year I feel like the Poacher is just far superior. Managed to get my world beating striker who I got for free from a team in a lower league than me to score exactly 100 goals over 2 seasons with more than a 1 GPG ratio as you can see below in the spoiler. As bad as it sounds I've not even done that with a top tier team lol.

2 buttons. That is all I clicked. Originally my plan for the whole tactic was to gradually mess around with the instructions as seasons went on however why fix something that isn't broken? I've noticed that pressing all over is pretty much a must have in most tactics that aren't trying to hold out for a cheeky draw. I went for control mentality in every game which was acctually a first for me. I love banging in 100's of goals per game so I tend to go with more attacking however control worked out well better than expected. :)

Boom! Back to back promotions with a team full of bots! Never ever done before ;) . Also the cheeky cup win in the first season was nice. Honestly think this might be the furthest I've got into a game since FMM2017 and probably the most fun I'm having in a long time.

Conclusions

I'm not gonna say this is the best tactic in the whole world as well 1) it's not, and 2) have you seen some of the people on this site? They legit eat 1kc's and invincible seasons for breakfast. However with the right players hopefully this will work wonders for you :). I'm going to leave a bunch of photos in the spoiler below with random photos that people might want to look at such as my manager profile and some stats of the players.

I think you'd be surprised at how close this is to my 1K tactic :P

I also like to keep it simple, but seem to have to make more changes during matches this year (especially in the first few seasons). Great looking tactic mate

Thank you mate :). I knew it could get the striker scoring but didn’t realise how close to a 1kc type tactic it is lol.

You’d be surprised at how good this tactic could be in top leagues. A little tweak in mentality and 1kc is in your hand.

Cheers :). Honestly the feeling of getting your striker scoring big numbers is something else. Debating trying to finish my first 1kc later in the year.

Did you play this, or holiday both seasons? If you holidayed it, the assistant wasn't using your tactics for the games. 

Fully agreed on CMs though, I keep one basic ass CM in all my tactics. DM is similarly underrated.

Played every single game with 0 holidaying, never really tried the DM but that’s good to know :)

Oh, I misread about the season you holidayed before starting. My mistake!

Over complicating tactics is an easy trap to fall into and I've done it plenty myself. Never had anything tactic wise to the very high level of the 1kc guys but I have stuff that works.

Simpler stuff is very underrated.

Couldn’t have said it better! Definitely going to be a new normal for me.

Especially once you've built a dominating team. The way I see it is you just leave most things on balanced, and let them do what they want rather than telling them to play a specific way

Started a new save using this tactic and it is great the only thing I change was one of the cm to bbm and one of the wingers to inside forwards.

How effective were the changes? Been thinking of doing this with Villa and changing right wing to IF to accommodate Traore.
