Re: *Official Football Manager Discussion Thread*
honestly, it's very close to game breaking. the match engine, right now, is just an absolute mess. it's just the way it's played. it's basically fifa, massively reliant on pace. the amount of times i've been absolutely slaughtered by wingers/fast fullbacks is absolutely ridiculous. nathan dyer scoring 4 goals vs a full strength chelsea team is just a joke. leaving azpilicueta, who is no slouch, is ridiculous.
defending at the best of times is obsolete. man marking is close to non existent (even when you have tight man marking set). the gameplans are obsolete. playing an attacking style, yet your centerbacks are passing backwards/to your keeper. goalkeepers make an incredible amount of mistakes. way too many penalties. the game just doesn't seem to respond to what i want it to do right now, and that's incredibly frustrating. somehow managed to win 7 games in a row with sunderland, but most of them are 5-4, 6-3 type games, happening week in week out. match prep focus on defending, then i go weeks without scoring! it's so out of balance it's ridiculous.
