Could I also ask people who try this to post there results, win or lose.

If you lose, and you followed ALL the instructions, could you please post the Commentry for the goals conceded, the stats of the game, and what formation your opponent played. It would be a great help for making minor tweaks.

Re: Having the Best team and still losing? Try this.

thanks will give this a go. recently i lost with an average rating 95 team to an average rating 90 team, and here is the thing, we were playing the same tactics. i played everyone in correct position and everything and copied the other guy's exact tactics. and i was playing at home. but still lost? i cant figure how

No bother mate. The match engine really needs to be renewed, yes sometimes there will be an odd shock result, but as you said, If there were two teams playing the same tactics, surely the one with higher players would provail.

Re: Having the Best team and still losing? Try this.

Thanks, I'll surely try this. One question though, do only CFs get to be Target Man or can Fwds be too? Since I use 2 Fwds in attack(93 & 94, since CF is 92).

Well, **** happens mate. Last night Man U lost to Newcastle, even though both teams played 4-4-2.

No bother, let me know how you get on. Yeah, i just call them CF's. If you had a CF and a FWD the same rating then its better to choose the CF, but basically just pick your highest rated striker.

Re: Having the Best team and still losing? Try this.

hy,

i'm using with success a similar tactic, on barcelona

still, to go 48 games undefeated.....it's a little strage (lots of unmanaged teams?)

when playing a regular team (90-91 rated) i'm never affraid of the big teams (94-95 rated) because their managers are, usualy, lazy enough not to adapt their tactics. so, what i'm saying is that if you prepare your game good, you can win no matter the opponents tactic (check Biohazard comment).

Of course luck is involved too:)

by the way, try the same tactic on another team, see if it works

i just couldn't make manutd go with any of my preffered tactics, so I had to find a new one, just for manutd

Re: Having the Best team and still losing? Try this.

A lot of people complain about having the best team in the league but still end up losing. This isn't full proof' date=' as no tactics can be, but these tactics got my Chelsea team unbeaten for 48 games in a row in the league. Thats a whole season and another 10 games. It also won me every other trophy I entered in.

I also tried it with various other teams, and results were more or less the same. Infact, I tried it with my Dortmund team, and it got me to #1 in the Average Points standings for a short while. (Check Sig)

I must stress, only use these tactics if you are playing a team [b']that is weaker than you.[/b] At least 2 ratings weaker in the Average Rating stat.

This works against every formation, excepting 451 Defensive. So check your opponents last fixture.

I MUST MAKE THIS CLEAR.

No tactic has a 100% success rate. But this one has worked wonders for me, and more often than not brings me back a win. I asked some friends to try it also, and they came back with positive results. But still, nothing is a guarantee.

Remember though, Only use this if your opponent has a Ave Rating of 2 lower than you AT LEAST. And that he isn't Playing 451 Defensive.

Formation + Arrows

Play a 3-5-2

Put a backwords arrow on the DM,

Put two forward arrows on the Left and Right Midfields.

EDIT: Dont play the arrows on your starting line up, need to experiment a bit more with it, Do it with no arrows :L

Team Instructions

Normal Tackling

Attacking Mentality

Short Passing

Mixed Attacks

Normal Tempo

Press All over

Dont click any of the play style boxes unless,

You have a CM that is +2 higher than any of the other CM's. Then make the higher one a playmaker.

You have a CF that is +2 higher than the other CF. Then make him Target Man.

Subsitutions...

Losing or Drawing at 75 Mins...

Switch to a 334

Put a Backwords arrow on the Central Midfielder (The middle on, not any of the other ones)

Team Instructions

Hard Tackling

Very Attacking

Long Ball

Mixed Attack

Fast Tempo

Press All Over.

PLAY OFFSIDE TRAP

I cant stress how important that is.

Make any necessary substitutions if your players cant play in their new position.

As for Set Piece takers I have no idea if it makes any difference,

But My preference is...

Captain = A player over 30 IF he is one of your better players. If not use GK.

Penalty Taker = Your Highest rated CF or CM

FK's = Highest Rated Winger

Corners = The Winger that doesn't take FK's

Playmaker = DM or CM, Whichever is Higher

Target Man = Highest Rated CF

Hope this helps, Rep is appreciated

Re: Having the Best team and still losing? Try this.

i just lost to an unmanaged side bolton against my blackburn' date=' he played a 4-3-3 and his team rating was 86 compared to my 90... inexplicable, [b']and i used your tactics[/b]:mad:

I have to ask, when you say you used my tactics, did you follow what I wrote to the LETTER?

If in fact you did use them exactly as I said, and you did get beaten, which I feel is a bit strange, could you post a Screenshot of your tactics, your opponents, and the commentary to the goals.

One last thing, I can only assume your game was last night. Why were you playing a game last night exactly :L? I can only assume it was a friendly, which essentially means you haven't lost out on any points or anything and friendly's in my experience also through out more odd results than league games, because, well, they're friendlies.

* In the 1st Division, there's 13/20 clubs managed, including myself.

*Of course, you can beat anyone with the right tactics, but this is aimed at the people who play sides that they should easily beat, and come off with 3-0 defeats.

*I've tried it on 4 or 5 teams now. All have had varying success,

Team Name : League Games Played : W/D/L

Chelsea : 68 : 59/7/2

B.Dortmund : 31 : 26/2/3

Rangers : 17 : 15/1/1

Porto : 15 : 10/1/4

Excepting Porto, those results are pretty good, but obviously it will vary in success for everyone, so that's why I'd like to know your results etc, so I can adjust it.

OK, cool. I'm gonna use it tomorrow in a league game against an unmanaged Shakthar(89 average, whereas I'm 92).

Well, as said here "EDIT: Dont play the arrows on your starting line up, need to experiment a bit more with it, Do it with no arrows :L" - I did it with no arrows. Here's the result against the 89-rated unmanaged Shakthar:

Re: Having the Best team and still losing? Try this.

I might try this Soon Kyle for one of my Teams, If so I will let ya no of the Outcome, Probably do it Wednesday (Next League game) Or I might try it in a Cup Competition for My Real Madrid in a Spanish League, Think Im away at Villarreal, Think they have a average rating of 89, Mine will probably be around 92 for the Cup, Im sure 3-5-2 Will work very well in this League as it isnt competitive.

I might try it in a Competitive Set up Wednesday, I do play 3-5-2 sometimes, I will just add the Styles of Play etc. :)

Re: Having the Best team and still losing? Try this.

I used all the tactics today.

My 89-rated visiting team gained a 2-0 victory over an 87-trated home team.

Cheers!

Glad it worked.

I honestly don't know what went wrong. I played the formation on all 5 of my teams, and I got 5 wins, scoring 19 and conceding 4. I can only apologize that you didn't win as I predicted, But thanks for posting your tactics.

I'm gonna try it again today in a friendly against the same Shakthar. Let's see what happens!:P

P.S Last night's game wasn't really that much of a let down since the 2nd team in Div 2 lost 0-2 so I'm still 1st.

Re: Having the Best team and still losing? Try this.

And here's the outcome:

I think what made the difference was that the league match was an Away match and the friendly was at home.

P.S I haven't touched anything since last night - the tactics are the same as what you see on the second pic (above).
