Why do random nonsensical lineups keep getting used in my games?

I have my tactics set but the AI seems to put whatever players it wants in whatever lineup, different every game, this needs to get fixed, my team is tanking as a result

Your assistant manager was in control of your previous few matches. Were you logged out for more than 3 days?

Maybe if it repeat 2nite then there's problem, if it don't it means you have previously been inactive for 3days.

Yeah, I was gone for the extended weekend here in the US. That's ridiculous, why would that be the rule? If i set the tactics they should be used, whether I log in every day or not.

What a lame decision by the developers

I agree with you ..

I agree too.
This should be increased to atleast 7 days if they want to still keep the rule. There will be genuine cases where people won't be able to login for a straight week.

If they keep the rule, which they shouldn't, we should at least be able to hire an asst manager with a skill to set a rational lineup. One game I had 5 forwards and 5 defense with defensive players playing forward and offensive players playing defense. Absolute crap. If an asst manager did that they'd be fired immediately.

Yes we concur that it needs to be changed. However we do not intend to remove it completely as it would be promoting inactivity. I think 7 days would be a fair period for any manager who has to go inactive due to unforeseen circumstances, so it will changed to 7 days from next season.

I have been fighting for this to happen for at least 3 full seasons now, I have lost my league the last 2 seasons because I have a life and was away for 4 days multiple times and when cmaping there has been no wifi or data to login so I lost 2 games per season strictly by playing my junior club. Tegimus will never make the change he/she just appeases you and says the change will happen as per usual.

I think this rule was made for the time when there were a lot of managers signing up and leaving in the top divisions which then left "managed bots" in the leagues. Nowadays new teams don't go into division 1 when they join so it is time to get rid of this rule altogether, but 7 days looks good nevertheless.

Why is this a rule? It should use the tactics I set until it deletes my team. What is the limit for inactivity before the manager loses their team?
Fathima

It's 28 days

Why is this a rule?
Some managers will dedicate their time in the game while some just stay away from the game or log once per season and win the treble.
While multi account manager's (the cheater's) have more time to stay away from their 2nd team and hurt their rivals.
7 days 14 rounds makes it a big relieve to stay away.
But i have no problem if that don't affect the website. Because i was thinking more traffic generate income for a site.

Any concrete update on this...or are we just hoping to sweep it under the rug as per usual?

As I mentioned already, the maximum period of inactivity before the assistant manager takes over will be increased to 7 days from next season.

Today theres a chance, to have a new league winner in portugese league because the manager that has won it over the years was inactive, he normally play same team same line up to win everything.
This is what i'm going to miss with this update and it will affect most ambitious managers too, those strongest teams that has won everything could remain top because of the longer inactive update.
Even when they find the trophies boring they would be inactive for longer period and block the path for others to catch up.

My issue is I just went away for 5 days to a place with 0 Wifi and 0 Data being available. I came back today to find out I just lost my last 2 league games because I dressed 2 garbage lineups. Now I have dropped below the promotion stage in England division 2 with very little chance of getting it back unless the teams in front of me slip up. SoI am on the other side of the fence and say the 3 day rule is just stupid. You should at least be able to check a box to say your going to be away for "x" amount of days and to keep the lineup the same.

I understand the people that have just up and left their teams, but for the people that put a lot of work and effort into their teams only to be shafted every single season is getting pretty fucking stupid at this point.

So many similar incidents this season, glad they are changing the rule to 7 days
