Heya, after some prolonged testing I feel that my tactics are more solid and more refined, but one thing that I am not satisfied with, after starting to score from corners again, are the free kicks, I am mostly using the default ones because when I set them up how I wanted the ball was always going far from any player, or anyway i was rarely getting them how I wanted. I am mostly trying to make my players stay close to a post and then have the ball played to the other one where someone comes to attack it from deep, or just as a surprise, as I conceded many goals, or how the default tactic sometimes work. ( hope you get the idea) however I am listening to any suggestions.
Thanks in advance for help
If it is direct free kick than you need good shooter,but good attributes does not mean he will score lots of goals.
when i take over some team i test best free kick takers and than decide who will be permanent free kick taker.

about indirect,well i use the same thing as with corners.

these two things i always use:
good shooter outside the 16m area
one tall player disturbing the keeper

and of course you need good taker,with good passing abilities.
For free kicks i choose "best header" and for corners,if the player is right footed, "near the post" from the left and "to penalty area" from the right.Exactly the opposite for a left footed player. :)
