Hey guys!

I finally got around to make a tactic for 14.3.1, and it turned out to be a real beast in my opinion. It is pure plug and play, as always from me.

Screenshots will come, as I have several people testing as we speak, in order to provide me with screenshots of the results this tactic gives.

It's a 6-2-2 formation (see below), but don't let that fool you! The attacking strength of this tactic is immense, as both the wingbacks and the two attacking CM's have "Get further forward" enabled. So the wingbacks are basically wingers, and the CM's are basically AM's.

1. Keep your players happy.

2. Discipline your players when they do bad things.

3. Players: See the different roles

4. Match prep: Defensive positioning

5. Team Talk: Been using assistant manager to do that (High Motivation and Man Management stats)

6. Always give the tactic time. 10 games when the tactic is fully fluid is an absolute minimum to get to know the tactic and how (good) it works.

7. Have a high number and a high variety of friendly matches, so you get the tactic fully fluid before the start of the season!

8. IMPORTANT: Do not let assistant manager set Opposition Instructions, as I have manually pre-set OI's. Do not change these.



Please keep in mind that both these tactics are made for the English Premier League. How it fares in other countries is unknown at the moment, so I appreciate feedback on this so that I can inform users about problems in certain countries.


A big thank you to Jassar who provided me with the corner setup!

The original tactic by postrotok (not v2) is incredibly good at home, and I have tweaked it a bit to have a good away option with the same positions. I will post the tweak below here, but I recommend going to his thread to download the original to use for home matches, and use the tweak for away matches.

Hey! i'm gonna test this tac!! You said defensive positioning but...50/50 ?
When testing it, I didn't change anything at all except set it to def pos. Will experiment with those bars later on. Perhaps with feedback from users :)

10-0-0 so far, including away matches against City and Arsenal.

Van Persie (In the Advanced Forward role) 19 goals in 15(1) games!

just took over sampdoria so will give it a blast with them
Will be nice to know how it fares in other leagues than the English Premier League :) Formations are different from country to country, and this tactic is made in the EPL.

Can you show us how do you display the players in the tactic?
Which kind of player take which positions?
Just look at the player roles. (Click on a role in the tactics window, and several attributes will be highlighted)
You can also check the players' star rating for each role.

I know.
But would you integrate any wingers in this tactic?
If yes, which position? Are they too offensive to play as wingback?

Just a quick question. does the keeper kicking long have any effect on the tactic? i was just wandering if its better passing short because otherwise your giving away posession needlessly.

Good catch :) Totally forgot about the keeper. Haven't touched him really. That said, it seems to be working fine now, and it's not a possession tactic. Perhaps I will change it after some testing :) Thank you :)

Cheers mate. i noticed quite a lot of his passes were paying off anyway. maybe thats due to a lot of players starting deep.
