It is sometimes hard to estimate how a match will go, without knowing the formation and settings of cour opponent. And of course, there is always a lot of luck involved as well.
There is only one way to effect the course of a match after it started, and that is by playing a half-time direction trading card. Those cards will change your "tactic" in the second half of the match. This can be the perfect way to turn around a losing match.
The following half time cards are available:
|Take it slow||Team effort is reduced by 50%|
|Encourage (Common)||Team effort is raised by 25%|
|Encourage (Uncommon)||Team effort is raised by 50%|
|Full attack||Team plays more offensive, more chances, high risk of counter attacks|
|Full defense||Team plays more defensive, fewer chances for both teams|
|Play for free kicks||Teams tries to get free kicks, yellow cards for dives
|Get penalties||Teams tries to get penalties, high risk for yellow cards
Half time directions can be played in any match type. You can save a card at the time you set the formation, or you can place it right into the live ticker up until 50 minutes after kick-off. (And of course you can change or remove the card added at any time until 50 minutes after kick-off.)
