Tactics stop working

Post by ejonr65 »

I'm currently playing the november 2020 update.

My tactics always seem to work well for the first three seasons then in the fourth season just stop working and my results go completely downhill.

Is this just me or is it something to do with the game any helpful tips are welcome.

Yes this is quite normal, there always comes a point when your tactics become less effective. It is like real life - eventually a manager's tactics will be "worked out" and other teams will learn how to play against them. You will have to either tweak your tactics or abandon them for new ones.

As well as tweaking tactics as time goes on something else I have found is that the squad needs freshening up. I’ve found that just a few new faces each season seems to keep the results positive over a longer save.

I believe the "tactics get cracked theory" has been debunked several times, it doesn't happen

What do you do when your players stop responding to your tactics? I was running away with EFL One, 15pts clear 30 games played when things went all Pete Tong. Automatic promotion was only guaranteed with a scrappy draw last day of the season. Couldn't buy a clean sheet, never mind a win. Probably went through 4 different formations looking to get the form back on track.
