'''Attack in the Middle (AIM)''' is one of the game's [[tactics]]. It raises the probability that a chance is created in the middle of the field by at least 20%, lowering at the same time the probability that a chance is created on the wing.  The ability in the tactic is calculated by summing the [[Players#Passing | Passing]] ability of all outfield [[player]]s. When calculating AIM skill, an [[experience]] bonus is added for each involved player.

The distribution of [[regular chances]] between center, wings and set pieces (direct or indirect) is 35%, 25% (left ad right), 15%.  Playing AIM would change this distribution by at least 15% up to 30% (if the ability in the tactic is the highest possible).  
There is much debate as to the distribution of chances.  One common theory believes the distribution of chances between left wing, center, right wing and set pieces (including penalties) is 25%-40%-25%-10%.  Playing AIM would change this distribution to something like 21%-48%-21%-10% (if the ability in the tactic is low) or to 17%-56%-17%-10% (if the ability in the tactic is the highest possible).  
 
  
However, as Hattrick has never stated the actual chance distribution, AIM's true effectiveness is not known. Note that [http://www.hattristics.org Hattristics] reports (as of 06 April 2006) the chance distribution (excluding counterattacks, special events, and penalties) as 41.3%-25.65%-25.65%-7.4%, although these numbers may be skewed by differences in tactics, attack, and defence ratings.

Attack in the middle (AIM) tactics raises the probability that your team attacks in the middle, lowering at the same time the probability that a chance is created on the side of the field.

Using AIM, the game keeps adding a modifier throughout the match and the effectiveness is reported with a level of tactics at the start of the game and in the match ratings. When calculating AIM level, an experience bonus is added for each involved player.

The AIM tactic is reported with events and lost opportunities are detailed.

Effectiveness

The distribution of regular chances between center, wings and set pieces (direct or indirect) is 35%, 25% (left ad right), 15%. Playing AIM would change this distribution by at least 15% up to 30% (if the ability in the tactic is the highest possible).

The ability in the tactic is calculated by summing the Passing ability of all outfield players.
