    Sudden boost

    I wonder if you guys noticed this. I saw it several times in different games. What happens is that at some point in the game, my opponent's team greatly intensifies their effort for several minutes, like they all suddenly increased their ratings by 20, or got on steroids. They mount one attack after another nonstop, and score 2-3 goals within several minutes. Then this boost seizes. Such as, today I had a game and at minute 60 the score was 1:0 in my favor. Then this sudden boost, and the opponent scores 3 goals in 3 minutes; then again absolutely nothing remarkable till the end. I saw pretty much the same effect with another club 2 seasons ago, and it happened in every game with him. So I wonder, did anybody notice something like that? it's like there's some special hidden switch somewhere that gives your team a superboost for several minutes.

    Lol No, this is not street fighter or king of fighter where you have to press a combination of buttons to get a special attack. Yes the boost happens to me and against me. So it's fair game.

    If, and it's a big if, the game engine actually does what it should sometimes then it could be when you have 'hard attacking' set as style of play?
    The boost comes from that?

    very often indeed... in particular when I score, then the other team for a short period increses in ball possession

    That was my guess too, but no. In fact couple of times I saw what looked like intensified attacking when I switched the tactics to defense. Switching to attack mode absolutely certainly does absolutely nothing.

    It happens for both you and your opponent. There's nothing really to debate about here. Just before you score, you will see a lot of pressing - the boost, for your team.
