I'm having very weak results with V9, averaging 6 CCC conceded a game. I'm giving up on this game, there's no way to stop the CCC dominance from the AI.

V8 with the amr is literally the only tactic that seems to work for me with united. Have had over 100 pts for two seasons running. I love the tactic but it's really frustrating how no others seem to work.

I wish I could take the defense of cross and combine it with the attack of weirdo. Here are some of my general thoughts.

I'm conceding most of goals because the central defenders are in bad position on crosses. I think that the cd-cover in cross and the fb-support make cross much more stable in defense.

There is way too much space between the defensive midfielders and the attackers. Most of my goals happen after an opponent picks up a completely uncontested ball in the middle of the field, and has infinite time to make a decision. Usually he then is able to pick the most open wing player, who either gets behind the defense for a CCC, or works out wide for a cross leading to a CCC.

I am also conceding 4+ CCC per game with v9 in the ~3 games I've played.

That's using V8, don't know if I should switch to V9 I think I can't be any better :S Might back it up now and test V9 for the 2nd half

Do you have any screenshots of your success with V9?
Mate, are you kidding? ;)

I think V9 is the best tactic I've made for FM14.

I tested it about 60 games on my testing stand against top clubs and results were incredible then I made normal game play test at Southampton first season and results also were incredible.

After 17 games I was sitting 2nd with almost best Goal Difference in the league. My striker Rickie Lambert was best goal scorer in the league, he banged 13 goals.

If you want you can check all statistic.

Have you switched for "Waste Time" tactic in order to protect you lead? I think it hardly possible to achieve stable results without it.

V9 is better but it must be combined with Waste Time tactic to protect your lead.

TFF9 what do you do with a man sent off?
Remove AMC and move AMCL to ML position. It will be deep 4-4-1 formation. Also possible if you are losing to move one of DM to MC position.

Hey TFF, do you think it's possible to make an away version with exactly the same formation?
Yup, I have some thoughts how to improve defense for hard matches but attack will be sacrificed a little but for now I think the tactic has very good balance between attack and defense, also I’m sure that it is only possible to achieve stable results combining V9 with Waste Time tactic.

I am also conceding 4+ CCC per game with v9 in the ~3 games I've played.
The number of CCC doesn’t give full picture what is going on in match because all CCC are different some of it is harmless, for example, shot from narrow angles usually from wingers, also some CCC can come from corners, free kicks, attacking near box throw-ins or simple someone like Messi/Eden Hazard takes ball and dribbles all your defense and the tactic can do nothing about.

There is way too much space between the defensive midfielders and the attackers. Most of my goals happen after an opponent picks up a completely uncontested ball in the middle of the field, and has infinite time to make a decision. Usually he then is able to pick the most open wing player, who either gets behind the defense for a CCC, or works out wide for a cross leading to a CCC.
For now the only solution comes to my head is give AMC support duty(sure also need tweak some his PIs), it will make less harm to attack but strengthen middle sufficiently, btw, I did it for "Waste Time" tactic.

P.S. Also I’m considering to move D-Line higher for “Waste Time” tactics because now it’s too deep and it cause many troubles.

Am I the only one that can't read the images because they're too small?
Probably there's something wrong with your browser because in my browser there's an option above images to increase their size.

I want to stress one more time that the key to success is switching between V9 and "Waste Time" Tactics.

As you can see after 17 games I had one of the best result Goals Conceded - only 16 goals and the same time best result by Goals Scored - 38.

Here's few simple rules:

1) If you lead by 2 goals than switch for "Waste Time" tactic no matter what even it's 20 minutes of the first half.


2) If you lead by one goal than wait for 65-75 minute of the match and then switch for "Waste Time" tactic, sure if you still lead by that moment.

Hey TFF, i am currently using an old version of almighty weirdo (i think v6) whick uses ML and MR. My save is going very well and am about to end 1st season with Newcastle and am at 2nd place with a chance of going 1st. Do i use v9 for next season?? What do you recommend?

Spurs are the only team that I have lost to in the league this season and as you can see totally didn't deserve to lose. I've conceded only 10 goals while having three of my full backs/wing backs out injured for a while, Alex Sandro 2-3 months broken foot, Johnson broken leg 5 months and Santon with a torn calf 3 months. Also I always seem to do well vs Bayern only lost once to them on 14. I've scored plenty of goals too a lot are really good play, could have had a lot more but Harry Wilson misses 9/10 of his chances.

this is still by far the best tactic in my opinion. i don't think you should keep releasing new tactics everyday but i guess it's your choice. i had great success with v1 but i'm now using v8 and just absolutely smash everyone.

what do you suggest for wide midfielder's individual role training. I used wide midfielder for a season and it worked good but now I have a different player.
