Depends on what you want to achieve I guess, do you want to conquer all or just be a mediocre plod along club, keeping your job.

For a 442 that shares the goals/ratings around, I would certainly try

FodFod2CF or one of Tapanis 442CJF

Is there merit in not playing the same tactic every time and instead looking how the opposition is lined up and picking a perfect foil for that? How can I know what tactics will be weak/strong against what AI tactic?

I do that when I've just been promoted to a league. 3511 with 3 man marking DCs to counter 433 or 4231. Then I'll have the same variation with just 2 DC's man marking for playing against 532 or 442 etc. Sometimes I'll have another variation where the 3 at the back have 2 fullbacks to counter 451/4141. 4 formations stay in your last used slot so it's easy to swap them in and out rather than changing the player instructions over and over

3 at the back formations used to be a waste of time, now they can be quite useful. I'll do similar with 4 at the back formations where 1 version will have 2 man marking DC's and then 1 zonal, 1 man marking

Interesting thankyou. Is it possible to run the benchmark tool with only a single AI tactic to work out what beats what? From what I have looked it has to run a premade save so I guess not?

Hi @Wrexham, some months ago I was on the same fight: getting a bm with AI tct. The problem I faced is that I/we are not able to create a new save with AI tct because even that we replace data folder by the mini-greek db created by Tapani, when you try to create new save, it generates error/crashes. For what I understood, nobody fully understands what Tapani did/how to create bm save.
The best solution/idea, was given to me by Xeno, that suggested to add manager in all 13 greek teams and choose the IA tactic/user tactic that I wanted and next put that manager on holliday. After you choose all teams/tct, you can proceed with process of bm normally.
If I didnt explain well/any doubt please ask.
