My Huge Tactics Testing Project (FM 2013)


Well guys, its about **** time..
Cant resist not to run my testing project in every FM season.
For those who never heard of this project, you may look for:

FM 2011
http://www.fm-base.co.uk/forum/football-manager-2011-tactics-training/78624-my-huge-tactics-testing-project.html
FM 2012
http://www.fm-base.co.uk/forum/football-manager-2012-tactics-training/87981-my-huge-tactics-testing-project-football-manager-2012-a.html

This time is no different:
Plug-n-Play style, watch all matches (no instant result)..

As you can see, this is an attempt to find some of the best Plug-n-Play tactics for (and againts) big clubs..
Understandably some tactics may not do well here since they were not made for Plug-n-Play.
Bottomline, its all for fun, so lets not get things (too) personal.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'll update new results anytime I can..

Meanwhile, you all welcome to suggest any improvement for this test. But of course I cant do all the suggested
improvement, because believe it or not, I do have a life.. 8-|
You are also welcome to suggest any tactic, especially tactics which I cant find here.
I will start with the most recognized ones.
Thanx in advance!

tbh has a set of 4 of a 4 5 1 with wing backs, the best version by FAR is the counter version, even if you are the favourite, i use it 90% of the time and its a killer, you have to try it mate

You don't have madox13 monegasque tactic and Mrhoughs.

Can i recommend to do a league like HAzza did last year, using all 100 CA players in all teams?

But try to put all tactics.

I actually have both tactics downloaded, they are on the shortlist for the real test..
I'm currently only on the pre-testing.. thanks btw!

about, your suggestions, I'm not sure if 100 CA players can compete with the AI teams on this project..
check the next update I'm about to post.. some tactics struggle quite badly..
even though its other people's tactics, but I hate seeing the teams unable to compete..
I'm looking for tactics that I can actually use on my game save.. and I only manage the big teams..

I would like you to try with my tactic, i would like to see how it functions in this kind of challenge, it won't work as good because it's not designed to plug-n-play, but anyways, thanks.

I have got your tactic on the shortlist as well, together with some other recognized tactics in this forum..
Yours will be tested once I conclude the pre-testing.. cheers!

Just a question - you are testing tactics with solid teams with players for the roles - i am wondering it will be working if you just played with them in lower leagues like Czech, Polish, Slovak.... (Austrian)

There is no general anwer to that question as a_Ilfandy will be trying loads and loads up different tactics. Some of them will be better suited for underdogs and poor teams, and some of them will be more suited for teams with quality players.
