    Beating a far better team

    I see hundreds of people complaining about lower rated teams beating them (it's happened to me more than once!!), but if this is so common then where are all these 'winners'.
    Surely there must be loads of you out there who's team has recorded a win against someone rated much higher?
    What's your best win?

    I often score more goals when I don't watch. However, the game is more interesting when you're coaching even though I'm not sure if it does help at all, so I do watch most of my games.

    When you are winning the trick to score loads of goals is not make subs too early. Try to stick to your starting 11 and more often than not they will add to the tally. That is why you score more when u don't watch. I suspect that a lot of managers make changes by the 60th minute, which disrupts the simulation.

    For example at 4-0 up, what happens to me usually is whn I make a sub in the 60-65th minute, my team stop scoring. But if I wait for the 75th minute, I would probably be 6,7,8-0 up.

    Back to the topic, I've beaten someone who had a stronger squad and was 3 levels above me (7-0 & 5-0), but apparently he was inactive for more than two months. He became a bot not long after that. LOL.

    I stick with the same formation. It seems to be working well. I'm 4-3-3. My form is 8-9. Haven't never been beaten by a weaker team. I attack the weakest side or point.

    well...in the last round of the CUP....first, i had away game...i forgot to put my 1st team up...all 11 players on the field was my sub...and in the formation i never use ( 3-2-3-2 cause i have 2 sub ST while i don't have sub DMC) .... and i over train my sub for the bonus....all my players on the field only have max 50% condition ... and then i fall asleep.... when i woke up...the game was over...and log in and see the score.... won 5:1 =.=!!

    and several days ago.... for the home game...i put on all my first team...99% condition...i watched the game....well...i lost 2:1 =.=!! (and only my DC scoring -.- )

    That's a good first question. I came to the conclusion that the other managers where just NOT there. I never lose when I play a far weaker side and the other manager is present. Troll result occur against crap, half-abandoned teams. Just when the game decides to trick you. On the other hand, I regularly win against better sides in cup but the question remain about how well prepared was my opponent. In league, usually the best team wins provided the manager behaves seriously.
    To answer your second question, my best win is a 3-0 second leg victory in cup (1-4 in first leg) against a team 1* better that me in average. In this case, the manager was there (on top of that, he was also a treble holder). And he probably ate his hat this day.

    Beating a much stronger team is possible, but it is very difficult to repeat this feat many times in a season, especially if the opposing manager is 'active' (that is, enough to win a competition consisting of mainly much higher quality teams). It is better to be at least above the average quality of the competition you want to win.

    Beating a far better team-s34-champ-cc-round-6-rigun-fc.jpg

    Casuals Level 30; opponents Level 31 - it wasn't pretty, but it's the result that matters if it gets you CL qualification to the knockout phase...
