    I only just changed to Modern Warfare last week (Hello Quadruple!). Judging by how popular it is on FM-Base...it's bound to be nerfed to the ground when I go home tonight isn't it? :(

    Yeah, it's a great tactic, I imagine they've hammered it in the update. Shame.

    Word on the street is that it's actually better(!) with the new patch.

    Only played a few games with the new patch and I can concur, match engine plays a much better game.

    20 games in using modern warfare it seems exactly the same results wise. 3-0 wins with the odd 6-0 thrashing thrown in.

    I hate the new slower animations. Some highlights are going on for ages whilst they just walk about like twats.

    I've read about this 'Modern Warfare' before, completely negates the point of the game for me. I want to manage a football team no be a nodding duck.

    I just like signing players and taking Luton into Europe. I understand that designing your own tactics would ultimately lead to a more satisfying experience but I just don't have the patience.

    It's essentially two different games. Back in the Diablo days I'd generally have one 'proper' game where I manage the Blades and make my own tactics, etc. and then one game where I picked Moneybags Rovers and stick one of these tactics in and have fun playing Pokemon with football players.

    Usually put may more time into the proper one, but the other way is definitely still fun.

    If you're not starting unemployed on Sunday League Footballer difficulty with non-real players and attribute masking, you're doing it wrong.

    Ain't nobody got time for that. I'm a min-max'er. If I'm not getting 100% out of everything I've got I'm doing it wrong.

    The journey and reward for me comes from signing a squad of 15 year old regens and seeing them all become international superstars.

    What shouts are you using with modern warfare, Gray?

    I've been using the pump ball into box, get ball forward, push up and play wider combo but I'm also finding retain possession, pass to feet and drop deeper very effective when playing much stronger teams. I just put two Championship sides out of the League Cup with League Two Bradford. I was playing my second choice 11 as well.

    Also, I seem to be getting a lot of joy with this corner set up. It's tweaked slightly from the modern warfare default. Scored six goals from corners in three matches. With the default set up I score maybe a handful a season. Could be my tweak or could be something to do with the patch. Here's a screen grab.

    I've only used it for a season but from memory I only use pump ball (drill crosses?), push up, play wider, but the opposite to you I use pass into space (although I think this is less effective in the new patch). Still a bit of a noob with shouts, almost all of the tactics I've used have been the non-shout classic ones.

    I think the right sided striker needs tweaked since the patch. He (Fierro 2018) is struggling to keep up with my drop deep striker (Damien Llyod, legend). Damo scores hat tricks in his sleep but Fierro (or anyone of my fast strikers that I try) seem to struggle.

    I still think TBH's 4-5-1 was better. But after 5 years I guess anything becomes pretty noneffective.

    I prefer the long game route. I have fm 13 but i cant stop playing my Rochdale game from fm10. Cup runs and seeing your cheap players come through the ranks and score in FA Cup finals against moneybags City sure takes some beating.

    Euh, so you guys are basically playing the game on auto and all you do is click continue?

    Isn't that a waste of your time? Can't feel very worthwhile to win that way.

    No, the tactic doesn't guarantee victory. It isn't like the diablo tactic of old.

    I took Luton from the conference to the PL in successive seasons but once I got there the tactic was completely useless. I had about 7 points from 20 games.

    Right, I've pretty much got all the achievements I want out of FM12 (just a matter of time till I overtake SAF!) so I'm pondering either picking this up or doing the "take a team from bottom to top in Outer Mongolia" challenges in 12.

    Can anyone sell upgrading to 13 to me, bearing in mind an up to date player roster isn't that big a draw?

    Not really. I don't think you're missing much. The player roster isn't even up to date yet. I think the database update is coming in March.

    yeah seeing as you obviously enjoy playing the full fat version, i think classic mode wont be of much use to you.

    I really love classic mode.

    Actually, I quite like the new training. It's much more straightforward.

    Seriously what the FUCK is up with penalties?

    I think I've only scored about 3 in 10 years.
