I was. Is it only Liverpool? Played City after them and it was like going from Superstar to Easy.Were you playing as United? They are hard coded rivals and the AI aggressiveness increases when you play them.
I've only seen this before in Football ManagerEvery sports game ever made has AI cheating to make you lose built in.
Yup United suck. I don't play ML, just the normal league, so I'm stuck with the shitty united. That being said, James, Rashford and Martial are an ok front 3 as long as you don't play possession football. The Liverpool game just shocked me. I'm back to winning / drawing against City, Spurs etc.Yep it definitely does this. Just has your -players pass the ball wide or over even if you play them in with an open goal, and usually doesn't let you attack in the first place by having players do completely different things to what you're pressing on your controller. Just really lazy AI and ruins the game quite a bit for me.
When you play Liverpool I think more you need to move the ball quicker as they are set as a rival and also play with high pressing tactics anyway. I've managed to beat them a few times, and I definitley don't win 14 out of 15 games. I play as United and they suck on this (not inaccurately)...I struggle to build up funds to really improve the team and don't want to start with an increased budget as I actually find the fact it's challenging makes it more fun (apart from the cheating AI). Managed to win the league in my 3rd season but it was a struggle.
I think generally the team ratings are about right. Actually quite impressed with some of the detail. You play Burnley for example and they just punt the ball up to Barnes.
I'll try that next time.Yeah, when the AI decides you're not winning then you're not winning. You can see it coming too when your players can't pass the ball out of your half. It's best to get a couple of fouls in then to slow down the momentum.
