    • Tactic Posts
      • Article Title - Please try to be as descriptive as possible. Include the name you've given your tactic and which version of FM this tactic (or set of tactics) is for. For example:

        FM20 Roy's 4-2-3-1 World Beater - Great With Top Clubs

        Intro - Please try to provide as much detail as possible. Include important information and if possible, screenshots and detailed descriptions of the Formation, Team Instructions and Player Instructions.

        Don't forget to include information about what types of players you try to use in each position or role. What player attributes others should look for, that work well with the tactic.

        If you use additional settings, such as shouts (touchline instructions) during matches, Opposition Instructions (OI's), or have media and motivational tips that you use with your tactics, don't forget to provide details of those as well.

        Try to provide examples of how you've done with your tactic and what teams you've used them with, what divisions or countries they've worked well in.

        Please mention early in your opening post, if you used the Tactics Creator or "Classic" slider settings to create the tactic. If the latter, don't forget to mention that users might not be able to use some or all of the individual instructions and that they may have to tweak individual instructions to make any desired changes.

        Provide a download link using well-known file hosting site www.mediafire.com or upload your tactic to Steam Workshop so others can subscribe easily to your tactic.

        Here's an example of good written tactic article, FM18 Liverpool Gegenpress Tactic
    • FM20 Challenge
      • At some point in time in your Football Manager career, you might want to do something different, something new, a brand new adventure to spice things up.

        And that's why we have a Football Manager Challenges.

        If you found a challenge that kept you playing FM to the point that you didn't want to quit because of all the excitement it brought, tell us.

        A great challenge is what we're all looking for to keep us going.

        There are loads of well known Football Manager challenges, like the Pentagon challenge, San Marino challenge, beating the bigger brother, etc.

        But this doesn't mean you can't pitch in your ideas.

        If you found a club that you are enjoying the challenge with - write about it, say what's challenging here. Or maybe you found a challenging league or a challenging style of playing FM where you only play with youth players...

        Possibilities for an entertaining challenge are endless.

        Harder and more unique the challenge, the better.

        Here's a list of challenge articles if you need inspiration.
    • FM Guide
      • Here you can write about something you might have stumbled upon that works wonders for you in FM, or you want to share your thoughts and opinions on how you think the game should be played, or how you approach certain parts of the game like tactics, training, mentoring, etc.

        Whether, you write on how to buy/sell players to get the max out of your transfer budget, or how to setup your game at the very start, all ideas are welcomed.

        Or you can even write on the things on what not to do in a save.

        You can write on just about anything, as long as it adds some value to the reader.

        And remember, there's no such thing as a bad idea.
