Hi TFF, good to see you here on the FM18 tactics forum. I make the same observations about the game as well after playing it for the past few days for several hours. AMCs are indeed better than strikers unless you have a striker as the DLF in which case, he will play deeper in the hole like an AMC. Another aspect of the game that is flawed is the specific marking of position option. So instead of always choosing an opponent to mark before the game, you just have to click this option of marking a specific position on the pitch. It does not work at all in the game as intended and i know from your past tactics on earlier FM versions that specific marking is unique to some of your tactical creation. During turnovers, the player is supposed to mark whoever is in the position but instead he tracks back to defend like he normally would without the specific marking instruction.I am also finding some of the player roles to be different from how they are described in the game. For example, the carrilero role is actually a lot more offensive than the mezzala instead of the other way around. I often find him in the box finishing off moves instead of the mezzala and often has more shots on goal. A pleasant surprise for me was the IW role which turns out to be very different from a tweaked WM with the same PIs. For one, the IW actually aggressively attacks the box more so than a WM with the same attack duty and PIs. The IW actually converges to become a pseudo shadow striker and with the game favouring deep attackers more than outright strikers, I am actually scoring more goals with the IW than the IF. Hope they fix the game in future patches.
