I do not feel that my following philosophy will work (as i have not tested this philosophy yet), but i hope that it does work, as the ME is far too hard. I could be winning and AI will score half the time, no matter if i 'dont change tactic as i am doing well', or 'switch to my most defensive tactic as i am winning'.
I am struggling on my llm tier 9 save and therefore hope to have found a work-around.....manipulation of the ME.
I am going to start again in llm tier 9 with 3 stored tactics. I am going to have each of my tactics very different to one another. I will then alternate between the 3 tactics-every 10 minutes (no matter what the scoreline is and how well/rubbish i am playing) to hopefully confuse the ME.
I will be trying this and will let you know the results later on. I am not confident this will work, but sure hope it does.
I like to start in llm and feel this is the right way to test this philosophy as teams are more evenly matched (on paper) in llm.
To make this philosophy even more genuine, i am not going to buy or loan players-i will leave this up to the board to implement those changes. As opposed to having 'greyed out' players, all i will just sign is all those 'local trial day' guys on £5 a week. Any other signings will be from the board.
Anyone is welcome to test this with me and hopefully if this philosophy is some-what helpful, may it be helpful to anyone that needs help with defeating the ME. I will be testing this and will let you know of any conclusions.
