Just had such a tense game. First game of the season after i advanced from the lowest league last season.
After 10 minutes i down 0:1 but the game was not looking too bad for me until then. My team starts pushing again and then one of my recent additions (1100 salary) gets a red card. I scramble and rearrange my team and sub one of my players. Switching to a more defensive strategy.
Manage to get to half time without much happening after that.
Then around the middle of the second half i exchange two more players and switch to an offensive 2 forward system and pushing the zone way forward as well. The new forward takes two shots at the goalkeeper and then another one of my players runs in and scores with the third shot on goal that minute.
I push my team even further forward and it works out. My star forward scores with only 3 more minutes left in regulation. I again move all my players back and stop every attack the other team trys to throw at me. Overtime was only 1 minute. And after that i was really happy to have won that game :D

The Hamburg Red Shells (shame the name did not fit so it is just Red Shells in game) will prevail and raise to the top of the world.

got the game today and played like 3 hours straight :o

it's very charming. i havent found the hang of the game mechanics just yet. so far i have only managed to get 2 training combos. do they have to be in a specific order? are there combos with 3 cards aswell? what if you make a combo with 2 cards and add a 3rd card to that? does the first combo still counts then?

how the hell do i make online games??
i went online but there was no option other than make a match against a team i have the ID of.

my goalie is driving me nuts. when he gets the ball he shoots it not far away enough. the ball always lands in half field in my half add an opponent. there are no better goalies on the ingame transfermarket so i dont know what to do.

how can i change tactics midgame without substitutions?

i will add @spizzamarozzi @spike @DadOfFour1972 @dwuuuu @andreoni79 @Sinister @Sjoerd @Datasun_7

Sorry if I’ve missed anybody out. Please reply in the thread if I have. :)

Great to read peep’s stories, regarding their progress. The game takes me back to much simpler footie management games, but with Nintendo’s customary polish.

I’ve been dealt a bit of a duff set of players with little or not tech ability. So i’ve had to compress the play “Big Sam” stylee. Pre season worked well and I’ve a set up a decent tactic to fit. I also have a plan B if things go pete tong during the match unlike wenger / moyes ;)

I’ve unlocked a few combo cards. The one saying grace in my team, is my goalie. He’s like Schumacher / Schmeichel rolled into one. Great at shot stopping and great at clearing the box from set pieces. “Look out frenchies, I don’t fancy your dentist bills” . :) I’m beefing him up in training at every opportunity. I hope no big clubs come swooping in for him.

I’ve a few questions for chaps who have put some hours into the games.

If you play a player out of position for a while does he change into that type?
say, move a fast winger from midfield to attack. ala Thierry Henry?

When do your players change from balanced to the other types, say worker?

Who is the captain and can you set one?

Thanks in advance.

@kalipso3, @WYLD-WOO Great combo lists. I’ve had a quick look at them, but I think half the fun is discovering them for myself. Plus, I have a terrible memory, so by the time I get to my 3DS from my laptop I’ll have forgotten them. But they are an excellent reference resource if me/anybody gets stuck and needs a helping hand. Kudos to you both.

I can’t wait to get online, but I think I need at least a season with my squad, to understand all their strengths / weaknesses.

One more question.

Does the game have a finite number of seasons or can you play for ever?

Had a quick mooch round the tubes. Read the Iwata asks article. V interesting, seems that the guy who made the game is ex-HAL labs and it took him 6 years to make. Blimey.

NO you can change a player from say midfield to attack in the screen where you also recruit/fire players etc (in the office). You seem to be able to do this as often as you like

When do your players change from balanced to the other types, say worker?

This depends on the levels of their attributes - so as you train them with the cards they change but can then also change back

Who is the captain and can you set one?

shrugs I duuno

i think a player can play a maximum of 5 seasons for you. there needs to be such a limit of course. otherwise the online mode would be totally imbalanced and boring.

Ok, for anyone that's interested there is a useful tool to check all the combos (well, quite a few anyway) that a guy from GF created:

Added you back, @Sinister and @6ch6ris6 ! I've had around 9 games now and it's very very addiciting. I have to say I'm having a little trouble with getting the training right, the potential is compareable to efficiency or something? I want to find out the combinations by myself, even though I thank you for the list, but I don't really get why some cards show a much bigger progress than others. I understand it's wise to try and combine cards for a higher yield?

alright this game is cute and everything but it's really unbalanced. I won every game in the Beginner League, I built a much better team thanks to the market and now that I'm in the Advanced League I'm losing every single match. If that's the trend, a few more matches and I'll get sacked.
Don't understand why the Beginner League was so short and easy - it doesn't give you enough time to build up and train a proper team for the Advanced League.

That sucks.. Though I don't think you'll be sacked that fast, will you? I had more trouble in my beginner league, I guess I'll take it easy and stay in the third division for 2 seasons. I'm still having fun though, are you all?

EDIT: I want shopping in the friend market, got three new players! thanks y'all!

Perhaps you've done a Burnley / QPR where your tactics /squad work in one league, but fail to translate to a higher division. They might be a hidden stat like morale, where a bad start to the campaign can't be recovered. I believe your rating can go down to 3% before you get the hook.

I'm sure if Pulis can turn a team around, you can. :)
