Mr Langvatn’s Tactic Thread (Updated for 13.3.3)

Update 18.07.2013: I have now updated the corner settings in all the tactics and re-uploaded them Enjoy!

My recommendations:

Top team: 2-6-2 Dominatrix

Others: 4-1-4-1 Rock Classic / 3-6-1 Sicilian Defense

All-round tactic: 2-5-3 Angels V2 (2-5-3 DDDMC ANGELS, updates: Strikers score more, better defensive set pieces)

Update 06.06: I am currently testing many of my tactics in a “Liverpool template game”. I will also test a lot of other popular tactics on FM-base for reference. All tactics will then be tested against the same teams in the same order, with the same team. I will be going on vacation BETWEEN the matches, so there will be zero man management. I will upload the Premier Division Table here when I’m done Be patient

Keep in mind that some of the tactics might perform better with all the “right” player types. This will just be a “plug and play” test.

Also, keep in mind that the results does not prove that one tactic is better than another, as I have only tested with one team, and only for 20 matches each tactic. (It is hugely time consuming…)

Hey guys!

I am semi-back Trying to start playing FM again, not easy with a 3 months old kid, but I do have time now and then in small amounts.

1. Always give your team high bonuses in the competitions you want to do good in…

2. Keep your players happy. In this year’s FM, this has a MUCH bigger impact than in previous editions.

3. Players: See the different roles

4. Match prep: Defensive positioning or Attacking movement (Your choice)

5. Training: Rich Genie’s training (Look at screenshots below)
(NB! This is only a suggestion to make talents reach their potential faster)

6. Team Talk: Been using assistant manager to do that

7. No opposition instructions


Balanced on average or high (Depending on your squad depth)
Default bar % (30%)
Attacking movement or Defensive Positioning Mach Prep

TRAINING SUGGESTION FOR QUICK TALENT GROWTH (This will make your talents grow a lot faster, but isn’t as good right away as high-balanced training/def.pos or match prep :

Pre-season Training:

k3zz4’s training tips to get 100% fluid tactic before season starts:

Pre season tips to get 100% fluid before start of season:
– Put the tactic in the 3 slots.
– Training: Cohesion en very heavy
– Trainingbar completely at the left (so 50%/50% training)
– Match prep: Tactic only. And rest after game ticked only.
– Arrange at least 10 friendly’s. Against harder teams tactic becomes faster fluid BUT morale can go down
so best is to like 3 easy friendly’s , 4 hard friendly’s and then 3 easy friendly’s so morale is high enough

Remember that when using plug and play tactics in FM, success is only 50% about the tactic. The other 50% goes into man management, training and player purchases!

Please post your results and feedback, so I can keep improving (Please only whole seasons, as RNG can be a huge factor in singular matches)
