Attack in the middle
|Attack in the middle|
|Attack on wings|
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.
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).
