So I finally made the switch over from FIFA, so glad I did. Started a ML with Leeds in the nPower Championship (using Daymos v3) and trying to build them up into the Premier League and beyond. Here's the things: I'm 13 games through my first season and haven't won a game. Had 4 draws early on and actually played well enough to win a few, but I've been horrible since. Playing on -1 speed, top player, and 1 bar support for passing. Not gonna lower the difficulty because, like I said, I've been close to winning. It's satisfying and I'll improve. Here are some (probably dumb) questions: 1. Is there any way to track what players are growing other than the graph? In FIFA they have a +2 or whatever next to a certain attribute if it changes. 2. I'm just having a hard time understanding the players ratings/abilities/etc. People say overall doesn't matter much in PES, but I don't know what does then. Most players have pretty similar numbers for me (mid 70s) and it's hard to differentiate and know what to look for. Is there a guide that shows what does what? (Teamwork, explosive power, so on) Oh, and what does the red number next to offense and defense mean? Mentality? 3. I've had a really hard time beating defenders one on one. Skills are tough to learn and pace isn't a factor like it is in FIFA (thank god). Any tips? I only have about 1 goal per game and it's mostly been through crosses. 4. I'm getting KILLED by through balls. Don't know what to look for, I've tried all 4 of my CBs and it doesn't seem to matter. They push up a lot and get beaten at least twice a game. Tried bringing CDMs in but that hasn't done much as they push up as well. 5. Are the player index traits something I need to activate? I switched a players position from CM to CAM and had to pick. Totally confused about these. Why do some players have a star next to their overall? Think that's all for now, thanks. I know I'm a noob haha.
