The Fiend v11 20.3.0 5/3/20

The Fiend v11 20.3.0 5/3/20 v11

Made some defensive changes, CWB to WB Support for the left back, Changing roles has helped defensively and does not take anything away going forward
SS gets in more dangerous positions and helps press more in winning the ball back high

Have felt with The Fiend that it sometimes lacked defensively. Sometimes I might look for more in a tactic than I should. So been tweaking stuff when it works already

I'm hoping we get no more patches as I want to leave this version as the last for a while.

TACTICAL TIPS

ASSISTANT/COACH
TACTICAL BRIEFINGS
TRAINING (POST 153 CJCOWAN OR LEAVE TO ASSISTANT)
OPPO INSTRUCTIONS

Touchline instructions must be done by yourself, Do not leave to assistant

SET PIECES
CORNERS/FREE KICKS - Either RCM/ RIGHT BACK
CORNER/FREE KICK ATTRIBUTE ABOVE 13 SO IF THE RCM OR RIGHT BACK DOES NOT HAVE THAT ATTRIBUTE GET SOMEONE WHO DOES

THROW INS - FULL BACK MUST HAVE LONG THROW ATTRIBUTE ABOVE 13
LEFT BACK TAKES LEFT
RIGHT BACK TAKES RIGHT


Set plays are very important. If your not following the advice you could lose out on 25% of goals scored.

Buy players for the position. Scout them. Get the right players in the right role. If they cant play the role, sell them and get someone who can. There is no point in having square pegs in round holes. It's a game, you can find 2 players for each position, if not your letting yourself down.

LEFT WINGER - RIGHT FOOTED
RIGHT WINGER - LEFT FOOTED


Also get pace everywhere, Especially CB I only buy CB's who can play on Cover as if they can play Cover they can do the other duties anyway

Enjoy.
Changed striker instructions.
I took this update down as after some tests was not working as well as I thought. I also only updated from v9 as I had read a couple of comments about striker not scoring etc. I'm putting back up as people have said it's worked etc. What I have learned is maybe not listen to every comment and go on what I think. There was nothing wrong with v9, so should not have rushed out a v10.

That being said I went back and edited some stuff for v11 and and ran tests playing every game which means I can tweak stuff I see so I believe it is much stronger. Without the tactic testing active it's quite hard to judge and you have to go on what I feel is better.

If this tactic was working do not feel the need to change.Carry on. But as it's my tactic I can only make changes I feel fit. I personally didn't like this version, but with tactic testing I could be completely wrong!!!
Just re done the set pieces. Defending free kicks, corners and Attacking Throws, Corners, Free Kicks.
I would use this version as since update it needed changing more and had a bit of time to work on it so have sorted it.

Tactic is identical apart from that to what has been getting great results.


CORNERS SET TO DLP - MCR
Only thing updated are Set plays

Throw ins updated

I've not had time to extensively test, The thing I had noticed from v7 since updated ME is the throw ins why have been changed

Made a few changes to the defence which has also improved the attack as fullbacks playing better.


Had loads of fun playing with this tactic today, Smashed Chelsea and City in finals of the Europa. Won 3 cups entered in. And second in the league, to an unreal Liverpool team. But still had 96 points. 'm so pleased with it. I'm done tweaking.

Enjoy. If you stick to getting the players in the right roles you will flourish!

Sorry for all updates on this. I'm pretty happy with this tactic now. Finished 2nd with Norwich. Added focus down the middle and seems to made it even better. Left Norwich and will test further with Arsenal

Just a couple of changes spent all day on the tactic, You really need to get players to fit the roles if you are using players who are not suited to the roles it just won't work as well.

Updated ran a 6 month test in my old Duisberg save and just secured Bundesliga with games to spare, Including sticking 5 past Bayern. OP has been updated. Took some bits from other tactics I have and put them in The Fiend to see if this shape can come back as I know it was popular and I really like the way the AMC and ST work in it.

Quick test with Norwich and finished 5th and didnt have a Seg Vol so pretty happy with it
