What am I Missing?

I was excited that the new tactics suitability ratings would apply to my saved games. I finally would get a "grade" for testing my ability to apply the tactical system. The results? Not exactly an A+.

For example, my tactical scores using the Brooks system on offense have ranged from the mid 70's to low 80's the past couple of seasons. My suitability - 3 of 5 *'s. The AI thinks I should be using the Torpedo attack. That, however, yield scores from the mid 60's to low 70's.

The save that I checked my scores against is a 32-year career as coach/GM during which I've won 10 cups with four different teams. I have maxed out my tactics ratings and I always employ two extra assistants with high level tactics ratings. I guess I'll check my other saves, and then it's back to the drawing board. It seems it's time to dig a little deeper.

By the way, this is not a complaint, or a plea for help. In fact, it represents what I love about this game. To paraphrase, poorly, Michael Corleone, "Just when I think I'm (figuring it) out, they pull me back in."

As I said, not looking for an explanation, but I would accept a few vague hints. Also, it would be great to hear others' comments about tactics and strategies, now that we can see how we've been doing.

Way to go FHM team, you've outdone yourselves again!
