You may have read my thread regarding my AFC Wimbledon team... I now have a squad which is better than most League 1 teams (attribute wise), yet I am really struggling against weak teams in League 2. I have tried tactic after tactic, formation after formation, tweaked things which I think could improve the squad but they do not do so... I have back to back results where I win 3-0 and play really well, then lose 3-0 and only manage 2 or 3 shots. In a nutshell, there is no consistency whatsoever, and I go into every game not having a clue how we will play or what the result will be no, no matter what players I pick, what tactics I use or whether the opposition is top of the league unbeaten or bottom of the league without a win. I know no one can predict a result, but Man Utd can expect to at least outplay QPR at home and probably win, whereas on FM13, I would say a QPR 0-3 win is quite possible.
I have read other forums where people have said that FM13 is different to the previous versions in that one tactic will not simply work against all teams, and tactics must be edited for each individual opponent. My problem with this is that I have no idea how I am supposed to edit my tactics for the opponent when there is no way of knowing how they play, other than the formation they use. Just to experiment, I saved my game before a match and tried pretty much every different tactical approach possible, and still lost every time except once when I grabbed an draw (I played about 7 games).
All this add up to make a game which is not fun at all, but very frustrating. I like a challenge but this game is proving impossible to play for me, without me smashing up my laptop.
Has anyone found any way of getting consistent results and performances or at least help? Something simple maybe like playing a Defensive style away from home or something... Nothing I do seems to make the slightest difference!!
