Football Manager 2018 Tactics - The Minesweeper | FM18 Tactic
After weeks of toggling with my tactic in various saves, I have finally found out something that works wonders. Every year I try to get a little niche thing in my tactic, and this year it was a sweeper.

Now since you are here you either have some knowledge of tactics and wants to know what sets this apart from other tactics or you have no idea in how tactics work, and if that's the case, just download it and play with it. Now for you who wants to know what differences this has from other tactics?

But first a general go around the team. Upfront it's running 3 strikers, roles doesn't matter they still exploit the match engine and most broken tactics use 3 up front. For the midfielders I'm running a BWM on defend and a Mezzela on support. You want these guys to win the ball and just play it forwards to the forwards, or play it out wide to the wingbacks. The wingbacks occupy the entire flanks and should be fast and good on the ball as they play a big role in the tactic. The central defenders are ball playing defenders, as they do the job defensively and play the ball around. The big part in the tactic is the sweeper, he sits back, plays the ball around, last man tackles. After using this tactic I was really intrigued to see Baresi and Beckenbauer play.

The tactic puts a lot more emphasis on playing the ball around than other broken tactics, which is just hoof it up to many forwards and hope for them to score. The ball gets shifted around a lot in defense and is either played up the wing or a pass to the DLF, it's aesthetically pleasing to see the team play.

As a footballer (and an FM wonderkid) I have experience with tactics and I aspire to become a manager in real life. Now for what I've accomplished with this tactic. I've brought Wrexham from the Conference to Championship in 3 seasons, won the Champions League in the 2nd season with Atalanta and won the acclaimed Draft Tournament over at FMScout's Twitch channel consectuvive (only one who has done this) against people with other game breaking tactics.

This is the best tactic you're gonna find.

Comment by Stam:
This tactic was originally submitted in December. Due to personal reasons, I haven't been validating member submissions for a while. I sincerely apologize.
