    SM Worlds discord

    Hey. As a long time member I wanted to create a discord in order for newer players to feel connected and have an active place to go for questions. I know that we have the forums, but the response time is very slow from player to player. We also have a reddit which is much quieter. Essentially, I just want to consolidate information and help player retention, by helping those new and old to feel part of a community. Any and all help would be appreciated in getting this started. Many thanks https://discord.gg/cyjKQXxc4E
  2. Alright so I used a 433B formation in the previous season and was 2nd place. This season I've only won 4 out of my first 9 games while drawing or losing the rest to teams I should be beating. Please I need help with tactics and formation. Ps I'm about to sign a player but I cant decide between Robertson in exchange for heavy cash and reguilon or Savic in exchange for cash and two players(pasalic and a winger). Thanks to anyone who replies with helpful tips. P.s It is also worth noting that I finished 2nd on goal difference and had a 23 game unbeaten streak and 12 game win streak within that 23 game unbeaten streak. I dont know what went wrong tbh so I need help thanks
  3. Can anyone please help me with the tactics. I have a good team but the problem is that I am not getting the tactics right. Please help. This is the screen short of my team
  4. This is ambitious, but I am sick of losing! For my own benefit, I am going to populate counter formations, like it was done in back in the day. I am somewhat inexperienced with this, so it will be done by researching threads, trial and error and most importantly...suggestions from you! *If there are any blindingly obvious counter formations, please let me know and I will populate the list and credit you* To counter 4-4-2 A, To counter 4-4-1-1 To counter 4-3-3 A, To counter 4-5-1 A, To counter 3-4-3, To counter 3-5-2, To counter 3-3-4, To counter 3-3-4, To counter 5-4-1 A, To counter 5-4-1 B To counter 5-3-2 A, To counter 5-3-2 B To counter 5-3-2 C To counter 5-2-3, To counter 4-4-2 B, To counter 4-4-2 B To counter 4-3-3 B, To counter 4-5-1 B, To counter 4-2-3-1 A, To counter 4-2-3-1 B To counter 4-3-2-1, To counter 4-4-1-1, To counter 4-3-1-2, To counter 3-4-1-2, To counter 3-4-2-1, To counter 4-2-4, To counter 4-2-2-2, To counter 4-1-3-2, To counter 3-2-2-2-1,

  6. I need tactical Help! In a Gameworld use someone always the 4-2-3-1B with arrows like the picture & is for some time in a row unbeaten! > Team Instructions Tackling: Hard Mentality: Attack Passing: Mixed Attacking: Down Booth Flanks Tempo: Slow Pressing: Own Half > Play Style (maybe) Counter Attack Tight Marking Men Behind the Ball > Player Instructions: I don't know Can someone HELP me, wich tactical System can beat the 4-2-3-1B (also with wich Formation, Team Instructions, Play Style & maybe Player Instructions) PS: My best formtion average is ø-93, Opponent's: ø-94 Btw: THNX IN ADVANCE
  7. how do you think about this tactic? does it work on your team? I'm doing pretty well with her, but I want to make it up, you have some ideas like that?
  8. After a while away from the game and exploring other soccer managing avenues i have returned to our oh so beloved game to win some more damn trophies and shame these brits! (lmfao, i'm just kidding britain, you know i love you). ANYWAYS, down to business! I call this new tactic, lets call it a leap of faith. because you are literally commiting your results to the hands of madness. Firstly: Formation We will be going with the amazing, bedazzling 3-3-4* Formation (*-with some editing) I'm sure you can see why i called it a leap of faith. If there is one thing we have learnt from guardiola is that a formation with more midfielders will win you any match because if you can win the midfield battle, the rest is up to good finishing. BUT goals win games and if you overload the opposition, they are bound to make a mistake or two, effectively winning you the game. The Fullbacks - Unedited The Midfield - Two of your most defensive midfielders will have an arrow drawn to the defensive side. Your most defensive midfielders will have an arrow drawn to the attacking side. The Attack - Will remain unedited. (This gives them a creative freedom). Secondly : Instructions Team Instructions Tackling Style - Hard. Mentality - Attacking. Passing Style - Mixed. Attacking - Mixed. Tempo - Fast. Pressing - All Over. Play Style Counter Attack, Men Behind Ball, Tight Marking, Playmaker, Offside Trap - Yes. Target Man - No. N.B - Due to the all out attack nature, a play-maker will be employed for more coordination Substitutions Ideally you would want two. First: Situation - Any Score 60th Min - Swap a defender and any other player of your choice (two subs max only) Second: Situation - Losing/LosingorDrawing 75th Min - Put your fastest players on the wing or sub one on OR sub a striker Team Instructions Tackling Style - Hard. Mentality - V.Attacking. Passing Style - Long Ball. Attacking - Down Both Flanks. Tempo - Fast. Pressing - All Over. Play Style Counter Attack, Men Behind Ball, Tight Marking, Offside Trap - Yes. Target Man, Playmaker - No. N.B - Due to the fact that you are now losing LMFAO , a play-maker will be the most annoying thing especially when you just want to wreck your opponent. GOODLUCK!!!!!!! N.B - This tactic works BEST WITH FAST WINGERS irrespective of squad rating but not squad depth. Average squads can use this formation too. N.B - Better teams with the likes of Ronaldo, Messi, have a 50-60% chance of beating you, especially on a good day. This is NOT! magic. Let me know if it works for you, i'm happy to help with personal formation setting.
  9. Somehow I am 14 games into my World Championship with PSG sitting in 17th place. No matter what formation I run, no matter what tactics I use, I keep on loosing games. My squad is: De Gea, Godin, Cavani, Koke, Nainngolan, Di Maria, Marquinos, Lukaku, Immobile, Van Dijk, Keita, Rabiot, Mustafi, Krychowiak, Florenzi, Pastore, Texeira, Trapp, Kimpembe, Berchiche, and Lo Celso For some reason this team cannot keep possession and concedes a good 3 goals a game. I've tried some of the instructions on the main posts here on how to play possession tactics and none of them worked. I feel like this is a good enough squad to finish top five, I just don't know what formation and tactics will work with this. Please help, thank you
  10. My tactics view is not updating with current condition. Any ideas? Thank you, Clatyn
  11. My Real Madrid team is not getting good results at all. Playing with 4-2-3-1 wide formation, my team isnt scoring well and Ronaldo isnt playing well at all. And almost every match my team misses tons of chances. E.g. Last match vs Napoli my team had 10shots on target, 1 goal. Napoli 1 shot on target 1 goal. Please help with the tactics and tell me what I'm doing wrong. Please. My first 11 and tactics is attached. Results - Played 6 matches, W2D2L2 Goals scored - 9 , conceded 10. Am 9th in my league of 14 teams.
  12. Everybody has been looking for the formula, well here it is!!!. Firstly : Formation Best,most effective and most guaranteed, is the 4-3-3B* Formation. * - With some editing. The Fullbacks - Will both have arrows drawn to the attacking side. (Do not adjust your two central defenders) The Midfield - Your number 6 aka DM will have an arrow drawn to the defensive side. Your number 7 aka AM will have an arrow drawn to the attacking side. Your number 8 aka CM will have no arrow drawn!!!!!. The Attack - Will remain unedited. (This gives them a creative freedom). Secondly : Instructions Team Instructions Tackling Style - Hard. Mentality - Attacking. Passing Style - Mixed. Attacking - Mixed. Tempo - Fast. Pressing - All Over. Play Style Counter Attack, Men Behind Ball, Tight Marking - Yes. Playmaker, Target Man, Offside Trap - No. N.B - This is because using a playmaker and/or target man, reduces the level of creativity of the rest of the team, and sometimes all you need is a moment of brilliance. IMPORTANT!!!!!!!!! Always set a substitution, the workload required of the tactic is much so you need subs. AND ALSO!!!!! Only have one substitute plan (most preferably for 60th min, regardless of scores), Never bring on more than two substitutes, you never know who will get sent of or Injured!!!! GOODLUCK!!!!!!! N.B - This tactic works irrespective of squad rating but not squad depth i.e A squad with a rating of 90 but with 32 players will challenge top four and SMFA spots easily. N.B - Better teams with the likes of Ronaldo, Messi, have a 70-80% chance of beating you, especially on a good day. This is NOT! magic.
  13. How can I play (mostly) draw with my av.78 team against an av. 90 team? My opponent always uses the following instructions: formation: 4222 mentality: defensive tackling style: normal passing style: mixed tempo: normal attacking style: down both flanks pressing: own half IExample of my opponents squad: Buffon (95) Potzmann (82) - Barzagli (91) - Carrick (90) - Evra (89) Gabi (91) - De Rossi (92) Harnik (86) - Ribery (91) Ibrahimovic (94) - Van Persie (88) Most of my players incl. the goalkeeper are rated 78. Is the Counter Attack Style with LONG BALL to clear the ball out of my own half or with SHORT PASSING for more possesion better? Or something else? Thanks for Your Advice
  14. Hi Guys. I've recently come back to SM after a year hiatus. First time I played with Spurs in a Custom GW did average. This time I'm in a Custom GW with experienced friends so need help regarding my Real Madrid first 11, and formation. My team, Navas(92) Carvajal(92) Ramos(95) Varane(92) Marcelo(95) Modric(95) Kroos(95) Bale(95) Isco(93) Ronaldo(99) Benzema(94) Bench - Dzeko(92),Casemiro(92),Asensio(91),Vasquez(90),Nacho(90),Kovacic(91),Handanovic(91) My instructions: Hard Tackling,Attacking mentality,Passing mixed, Attack Down the flanks,Normal Tempo,Pressing All Over. I'm thinking of playing 4-2-3-1 vs teams like Tottenham,Arsenal,Napoli,etc while going 4-3-3 with Casemiro as CDM versus the big guns Barca Bayern etc. Please advise me if my tactics are okay and what suggestions would you give to get me better results. Lost my first competitive fixture 1-2 vs Atletico Madrid. Thanks in advance, Shiladitya.
  15. Hey guys, so basically I took over this club from another manager and I find it hard to set a proper formation/tactic with the given squad. I've tried 4-2-3-1 B and lost 2-1 @ away, tried 4-4-1-1 and drew 1-1 @ home and yesterday tried 4-3-3 B lost 1-0 @ home. I am managing 3 different teams on 3 different game worlds and so far I am doing well with the other 2 teams. Idk why but I find it hard to set a proper formation/tactic with this team. Can anyone suggest me the best formation/tactic for the squad below? PS: There are many unneeded players(the super young ones) in this squad and I'll be offloading them soon
  16. Can you help with tactic, right now i play with 3-5-2 but i want a tactic that improve the goals and wins on my team. Here is print screen's of my squad: Squad: http://imgur.com/a/cJbxF Instructions: http://imgur.com/a/es9Md Schedule: http://imgur.com/a/rajXm
  17. This is where you can post your accomplished/successful squad and the formation along with tactics you used with them. This is where managers can come for tactical advice from some of the more experienced managers This is where you can help each other out by posting counter formations and tactics, best player to buy etc.
  18. I, my name is Matteo, and I'm a blind person. I've a big problem with the game. With the new view mode of the tactical settings, I cant set the lineup of my team, because I cant drag the players in the positions in the field. How can I solve this situation? Thanks!
