  1. iScout Arthur

    Yes he is. You can train him to be AMC or DMC ( but you don't want him as a dlp )
  2. Thank you for everything! You've been super helpful.
  3. Tactics Tactics #2 - The 4-3-2-1

    Finished first season 2nd at carabao cup ( so i didn't win it but was a good run ). For the 2nd season, won league again, champions league and carabao cup. Tactic is run for EME BTW, i got aubameyang for 20 mil. Now he's worth 60+ . Keep an eye out for random aubameyang sniping
  4. Tactics RedDevils classic 4-4-2

    Have you tried it with a lower team? Also, you should post some results for the tactic
  5. Career What to do with Adu?

    Great stuff, i love reading about your save. AWSOME !
  6. Thank you for the suggestion. I've got 0 experience about this thing called hex editor, can you maybe point me in some direction?
  7. Indeed , i 100% agree. I just want to see if my method of finding these players is good and if i am doing a good job. It's just a way to see if i am getting a 10 in this test, or if i am failing with a 4 I'd like to see if for example Shick is better then Embolo ( for example) . If Vincinius Junior is indeed a beast and reaches CR7 level or if he is just around 160 ability. I guess i am curious
  8. Searched our @jaymarvels , but he said it's highly unlikely Darn it, the FM scout is a vital tool for this game. As i don't own the in-game editor, can you see the CA / PA of players in-game?
  9. Hi guys, For FMM 16 , there was an fm scout application that costed around 1 euro. I know you can find out the CA / PA from the in game editor, but that would be like paying for the game all over again. Sorry , maybe it's a stupid question but am really interesting to see if my eyes are good for regens Thanks in advance
  10. It's gotten me over 75% win rate. Notice i already have the tactic on balanced + wide ( as i always played vs some narrow formations - just saved me some time ) and then i tweaked the shape based on my opponent and whether i was at home or away. Also added some random SS of games . You can see the total dominance. Also the trophy cabinet for both galatasaray and genoa. Notice how i had IF + FB on both flanks. ( FB got the defensive under control and permitted the IF to go wild ) I've also posted Arrambari's profile, as i absolutely love the guy. He's the uruguayan striker regen you can get after your first season is over. Some times he is just decent, but most of the times he's INSANE. Also, i've always rotate my players. I end up playing youngsters vs smaller teams i would crush easily, just to get them some games and help them develop. The game vs real madrid was the UCL final .
  11. Tactics Tactics #2 - The 4-3-2-1

    Finished first season 2nd at carabao cup ( so i didn't win it but was a good run ). For the 2nd season, am in january and i got out of the group in ch league , am 1st in the prem and am still in both cups ( FA & carabao ) . I'll post an update when i finish it with the results. BTW, i got aubameyang for 20 mil. Now he's worth 60+ . Keep an eye out for random aubameyang sniping
  12. Hello guys, So glad that you liked my article about the 4 3 2 1 . You are the motivation i need to do these articles. I've starthed playing the 4-3-2-1 while trying to have my take on the 1k challenge. This happened right after the nerf of IF's and i felt i needed a change. I'll start with the instructions : As for the previous tactic, these are not fixed. I usually start the game with controll and normal width and then change this based on my opponents shape and whether i play at home or away. If you want to conserve the result, play narrow if your opponent is not playing wide, play wide when your opponent is playing narrow ( vs smaller teams that have a narrow width) and of course play balanced when they are balanced as well. With the rest, i have my attack with : look for overlap ; Work into box; Run at defence with a mixed passing style and the GK distribution set on short. For the Defence, i let everything at default but the closing down is all over. If you want to keep the result, tick yes to time wasting ( but don't do it before 80-85 min) or they will overwhelm you. Regarding the roles, it all ties into your team's strenght. If you have a strong IF , then you should give him a try at that role to see what results you get. In my experience, i changed during the game (i was 1-0 down) my AML to IF and he scored two and assisted one. Switching up from time to time is healthy and keeps your opponent guessing. Do not stay with the 100% same roles/players all the time as it's going to be predictable and teams will adapt faster. Let's try splitting the formation up so that i can easier explain the dynamics. For the flanks , do NOT use WB + IF. This will create lot's of space in the back and you will get destroyed by their AML + AMR. Basicly, this will make your AML not track back and your DL will get played out of position. You can use WB + W. This will get you more crosses while still be medium at defending. Use this against weaker teams as it's more attack minded. You can also use FB + W. This is the most defensive combo. It will keep you safe while still being dangerous. If you want to use an IF , you are stuck with a FB. You have to negate the lack of defensive from the IF with a strong defensive full back. For the middle of the tactic, i've got several observations. Linking the defence to the middlefield can be done in two ways. Either you have 1x BPD or you have 1x DLP. I like mr Upamecano and he's an awsome BPD so that was my solution. In the middlefield MC positions i use AP - BWM - AP. I notice that the BWM drifts out of position and runds down oposition players like a fanatic. While you won't get high ratings, this guy putts in the efford and i wouldn't change the BWM for anything. Even a cheap BWM will make the difference ( take a look at Baumgartlinger - austrian BWM , plays in germany and you can get him for 9M max). Now in my 2nd season with watford , i can afford the luxury of Arthur + dony van de beek(ajax ). So i am using both as AP. If one doesn't score / assist, the other will. This alone gets me 1 goal/game. Alternatively, i believe you can play a DLP instead of a AP if you struggle finding a suitable BPD. Since you don't have an AMC you automatically need 1x AP in the MC position to link up play with the forward. I've gotten good results with a BBM as well, you can try it too. AP's are delivering both goals and assists. As i wanted my striker to score alot, i invested and got myself the czech star Patrick Schick. I use him as a AF as he fit's the description of " is expected to both score and create goals". If you have one IF , then you automatically have to have a W on the other side to create balance and width. This was the tactic i used for my Watford side and i finished 2nd in carabao cup, 2nd in FA cup , won the prem by 1 point. I've also attached some screenshots to see better what i'm talking about.
  13. Update on bargains : - ITO - the japaneese AMRLC can be signed on free in the first winter transfer - Goretzka - i think this is now commong knowledge - but if you're lucky ( if he isn't transferred in the summer) you can get him on free in the next season - D. Berardi is also available free in the 3rd season. So is aubameyang ( not really free, but you can sell him at age 30 for 7M~ or so ).
  14. Hi all, First of all, i do not assume i know everything but i've tried alot of things and player roles and found out some cool stuff i'd like to share with you. I'd like to say that i am providing observations NOT BASED ON TOP CLUBS, as it's very easy to win alot of stuff using giants like R.Madrid , Barca , Man U,etc. I'd like to see the developers of tactics post with low-end or mid level teams instead of giants. I like managing underdogs and bring them to giant level status. I tried alot of the posted tactics on these kinds of teams and 95% of them just don't work. I will start by saying that no instructions should be very STRICT as you don't encounter the same opponent over and over again. My observations are based on two tactics : 4-2-3-1 - (Galatasaray and Genoa )and 4-3-2-1 (Watford and Sunderland ) . The 4-2-3-1 : I used this before the patch that now made the IF's all but useless. I don't switch my GK to sweeper GK as i think that adds a bit of randomeness to the game. By using 2x IF's i also used 2x FB's in order to balance the wings and keep my defence strong. The CD's i tried positioning them to their strenghts. If i had LD (limited defendenders) i put them in those roles as any mistake in 98% of cases leads to goals. In my experience, the best combo is a BPD ( but this one has to be really good , else he makes mistakes that lead to goals ) and a CD ( sort of "the rock in defence" ). The BPD can actually score some pretty decent goals ( around 5/season - from shooting ) and the CD ( scores from corners - from heading). I don't like to use LD even if they have 20 aerial 20 tack because they tend to do mistakes from time to time ( adding to a certain random element ). For the middlefield 2 i've almost always used a DLP + AP. This was due to the fact that there is a gap between defence and the middle that the DLP can fill. Attention, all in the MC position , regardless of roles should have a decent number in strengh, or you will have the "lack of steel in mid" pop up in the after-game reports. This means that they are not phisycally capable of fighting the oppositions middlefield which leads to loss in possesion. Another great combo is the BBM + AP . It's more of an attacking duo , but if you have a great BBM , he will absolutely beast and win you the ball while also scoring alot of goals. In the AMC pos i play with an AP. This guy needs to have creativity , decision at a big number so he can "unlock" defences. Now for the bread and butter of this formation , the IF's. I had them with a high technical , pace, dribbling and MOVEMENT number. I saw that movement is very important for them as combined, these attributes did make or break their game. Even IF's with low strengh would score a ton of goals. Now for the ST , he was usually a TM / P . It depends on how the game is going and if you need him to contribute to the team effort ( i'll come back to this later). This tactic was reliant on the IF's for goals, on the AP for goals+assists and when the striker chipped in with his goal i would become unbeatable. For the instructions part, i usually went on with balanced-everything at the team instructions. The reason behind this was that i would addapt to my opponent. If they had a narrow playstyle and i was a better-quality squad , i would set my playstyle to wide in order to stretch their defence and make it easier for me to score goals. If they had WIDE , then i would leave myself at balanced. The reason is that having narrow vs their wide, it will cause me to concede at least 1 goal. VS smaller teams, i would usually attack + wide and depending on your players ( if they are technical, decision,etc high enough ) i would play also expressive. VS bigger teams, i usually tend to set it on control/counter(vs the giants) and balanced. This will cause the game going in scoring ALOT of goals, a "ding-dong" battle. Pay attention on how the game is going and have faith in your team to score the 80-90 minute goal win. If you are going to draw the game, put the team to attacking in the last minutes. If you are winning, don't switch to defensive and narrow. If you want to contain a result, play the "time wasting" and set to norrow ONLY if they are not playing wide. I won 8 out of 9 games vs giants in a high scoring game (3 - 4 , 2-3 results). I tend to struggle vs mid tier teams as they played similar to me. In this case, pay attention to the game and addapt accordingly. VS Smaller teams, i set my team to wide and attack and this results in a great result but i rarely don't concede goals. I do not recomment Offide trap. For the defensive line, if you are in the end part of game and need to score set it to high, else keep it to normal. Closing down - all over. For attacking , i work the ball into box, use through balls sometimes. VS smaller teams, don't use through balls as you don't want to waste posession on stupid passes, and play short passing. VS big teams, i have the though balls ticked, as they usually attack me and i kinda skip over the construction phase and just bomb them with my pacy,skilled IF's. Keep the passing focus mixed unless you spot the enemy having a wierd formation with no wingers. Last but not least, pay attention to not have in your team alot of greedy player roles. The IF"s are super greedy and don't contribute to assists, they are just there for the goals. For AML i had a right footed player and vice versa for AMR. P as ST is also greedy. Use AF / DF / TM ( if you have aerial high) for to help your team. This is why i use 2x AP's , as i need to have assists-makers in the team. The 4-3-2-1 : I'll come back to this later if you guys liked my first tactic, as i'm currently at work .
