have a look at what the AI is really doing lolIt's got f- all to do with morale and completely about tactical changes. The AI won't just roll over. At some point they will want to come back into the match and try to win it. If you allow that, it'll happen.
Also, if its doing what you say....why does it need to wait till 2nd half to do it....why cant it realize it needs to adapt after 10 or 15 minutes....because it sure is unable to adapt till half time.
If you are running all over them over the first 10 minutes you will keep attacking and maybe scoring for all the first 45 minutes
Unless they score some odd goal and.....morale changes.....not tactical tweaks....its really a lot more to do with morale changes.
Have a better look into the games and see what is really happening.
Notice how the kind of plays is always the same. If you don't change your tactic you will see more or less the same game.
What really changes is the way in which the players play it.
And it makes quite a change if one team has the upper hand and can just anticipate those balls and pass confidently....as the other just misses the same passes and cant anticipate anyone.
Also, what is really happening is if you launch some new player from the bench, unless you give a really bad pep talk, he will come into the game willing to show something. And this can bring changes. The timing of substitutions as a lot to do with controlling a 2nd half performance....just because of this extra changing factor of the new fresh and motivated player.
But many human players can tell you how important pep talks are and how they can dominate just by saying the right things at the right moments......the game is programed for that.
Even when you read the news after the game, it will tell you that the game was turned because of your aggressive half time talk....not because of your tactical change. So the game is being quite honest and telling you what happened there. You just decide to think its a joke but its not.
