Chat How to get the title of The Professor


Recommended Posts

I've been playing FM for a long time, and in FMM 2024 there is an interesting feature where we can get titles for how we use formations. I had opened The Dark Arts and Entertainer titles, but my The Dark Arts title just disappeared when I decided to replace several players which had a bad impact on the morale and professionalism of my team.

So I decided to pursue another title, apart from because there were negative comments from players when I used the title The Dark Arts, also because I was curious why the title The Professor didn't open as easily as the others.

The first thing I did out of many failed attempts, was I created a new tactic and started from an clean sheet. I started to mix up the formation according to the position of the players I had.

then in the Shape section, I imitated the style of tiki-taka, but I refuse to use False 9, because I have a front line that is sharp enough to move alone, even though the sticker is not yet at level it can become a Complete Forward (my assistant recomended as CF, but I stick to AF).

on the defense, I applied Gegenpress. To drain the opponent's stamina, as well as one Libero to rebel and help the Roaming Playmaker to focus more on moving from below (Even though in reality the Roaming Playmaker ended up running here and there without managing to get the ball, for me that was enough =D). 

Oh, don't forget to turn on the Time Wasting option when you have 60 minutes and are in a safe winning position. Also feel free to change players and positions, as long as it still makes sense for the player. Unless you have quite a lot of players with the coach's description of "An Intelligent Player", you should not change the formation too extreme.

I also feel, "An Intelligent Player" is the key to unlocking the title The Professor. Because I have 9 players out of 25 players with information like that.

then in the attack section, there's nothing special because I rarely change it. It looks like Vertical Tiki-Taka.

I see in your save that it is 2040... is that how long it took from the beginning? Or did you change something up at a certain point?

no idea what the rule is, but i remember a test season where i was basically changing tactics every few games and even within the match, i got it within like a season i think. you just have to chop and change your tactics alot and you will qualify.

i think if you approach the game as one where you respond to the situation, you can get  the professor label quite quickly. 

for example, you can adjust your formation simply based on waht your scout has told you. facing a 3 man defence? play twin high IFs to counter that. 3-4-3? make sure you play a 3rd central defender. defending a slender lead or going up against a big team? move you wingers down to be WM/DWs and play on the counter.

chop and change enough and you will get the prof tactic pretty fast i think.

I feel like it must be reacting to the scout report then, because I had four saved rotations that I would change every game i.e. Formation A then B then C then D then restart the cycle with A again. Did this for 15 seasons winning eveything as I went and nothing!

oh that's pretty interesting! if that's the case then i have no idea what else might be required. did you do any formation changes during the match itself?

Very rarely, so again, perhaps that's another key component I'm missing. Just wish there were some clear guidelines somehwere.
