    Are these tactics pure cack from Konami?

    I mean I've been playing 10+ games with the "Position switch" strategy setting set at 20 and guess what? No position switchs at all! I played a 4-4-2 (2 CMFs, 2 SMFs, 2 CFs) with Birmingham with a lineup of players more than capable of switching and playing multiple positions (Carr, Hleb, S. Larsson, Bowyer, Zigic) and never have seen a single postion switch:FAIL: Not even the SMF's switching flanks.

    I've also noticed that even CPU teams that have the setting set at "frequent" don't apply it at all. Also the "Swap wings" tactic is non existent what so ever.

    Another Placebo set of strategies/stats just like the low foot accuracy/frequency stats from Konami IMHO.

    I played half a season with "swap wings", but they never actually swapped wings, so yeah, I'd say that one doesn't work particularly well.

    Man all of this stuff should be simple. I mean it was in previous versions including back in the PS1 versions of the game..."Position Switch" 0-20 setting in strategies is an in an insult and I bet not the only "Placebo" strategy setting...

    Swap Wings doesn't mean that the SMF literally swap positions. If you use the Swap Wings strategy, when the ball is on one side, the winger on the opposite side will make forward runs behind the defense. Eg. If the ball is on the left side of the pitch, the right winger will attempt to get in a good forward position to receive the ball. You have to cross the ball yourself.

    Well, just like all the other non sense strategy names...this used to be "Opposite side attack" if I recall well.

    Anyway, the point I'm trying to make here is more about the strategies (0-20) in team style and how some of them, in this case "Position Switch", don't work at all.
