Is there anything as a Perfect Tactic? One which your assured of victory, or not losing. Because last week i was constantly dropping points, i got frustrated and found a tactic online and used that and have been winning since then. I regret doing that because it completely takes the fun of the game away. I hope theres no such thing. :(

There are no perfect tactics. The AI changes the way it plays against you depending on their reputation vs yours, the odds, the table, etc etc etc. As of yet there is no tactic that counters every conceivable approach the AI will take.

Okay thanks for that. And im glad there isnt anything as such. I deleted my career over this :(

And sorry for the 'bump', i know no one likes it, but i was desperate.

Cheers

There are no such thing as "perfect tactics", but there are plenty of plug-and-play tactics which guarantee varying degrees of success and overachieving. It's also easy to discover/create one yourself if you patiently meddle around with sliders until it produces favourable results in the match engine formula.

Of course, all this cracking of the code can be avoided if the user would rather engage the AI on a level playing field by using the TC & Shouts approach.

Trial and error, I'm afraid. Or just stick with an old fashioned 4-4-2.

There's been only been one truly dominant tactic for FM 2012 in my opinion (that had no caveats like must be strong team, must use only @ home, must have X type of player, etc).

That dominant tactic is from Tactikzzz (http://fmtacticalnewspaper.fmcrowd.com/fm-grid-system-tactics/)

It's a 4-1-2-3 system which sits deep and counterattacks. In defense he has custom man-marking from his outside forwards to drop deep covering the fullbacks (creating a 4-1-4-1 when not in possession).

It's amazingly sturdy in defense, has a fairly current corner tactic (1 atk near post, most lurk) - and if you have any pace in your CF he will score sh*teloads (look at Hulk in the above link - I've had seasons where RVP and Chamakh have beaten the screenshot's goals).

I honestly can't play more than a season or two with this tactic before the game seems broken beyond repair (in terms of any sense of realism) using both strong and weak teams.

The main thing to take away from Tactikzzz, however, isn't this specific tactic. It's his "grid" system that has behaved "perfect" through most of my testing.

I've used his grid methodology to use and maintain 3 separate tactics (using the TC) that all play the way I envisioned while applying his "Grid System" (player position despite formation, movement, passing, high defense line, etc). I keep all three in my match prep, and based on scouting opposition and whatnot I'll select between a 4-1-2-2-1, 4-2-3-1, and 4-4-2.

I don't think there are any 'perfect tactics' as such but sticking with a steady formation on the attack and defence is essential. For example, playing 6 on the attack with attacking fullbacks and set to overload you are extremely vulnerable to counter attacks. In my experience, I find when playing against teams which you are favourites to win, play a simple 4-1-2-1-2, 4-3-3 or even a 4-4-2 with the control tactic, this way you have a balanced defence and attack and still be prepared for a counter attack.
