So this is something I have never seen before. The offensive tactic I have been using for the past week or more continues to decrease, not increase?!? Has anyone ever seen that?

I switched back after game 14 when it became clear my experiment was not working. Both the new one and one I used last season were roughly equal in the blue zone. However, even though I switched to the original one from last season, it keeps dropping even though that is the one I am using. I even confirmed via all the asst reports I can access that I made the change. Oddly, it doesn't appear the one I switched from a week ago has decreased at all and has maybe increased even?!?!?

So this is continuing. Now the previous offensive tactic is in the green and still increasing, but the one I have been using dropped more.

Will update again after the next two games, but still appears to be moving in the wrong direction, yet my team appears to be playing better, regardless what the bars say.

Anyone else change tactics since the last big upgrade and experience the same thing?!?

Looking forward to your update. 

I've read that it takes more than half a season to get used to a new tactic, so I've been afraid to change it.  Never have.

So I've changed in the past (for better or worse) and it does take about 30 games to go from the bottom to full, but isn't my concern here.  

 

The one I switched from is still green although I haven't played it in about 10 games now (can't say exactly since I didn't write it on the calendar and didn't expect I'd have to remember) and the one I have been playing with is exactly halfway and unclear if the decreasing has ceased.  I literally just measured the bar on my screen and will measure it the next few days to see if anything changes.  Again, this just seems to be different compared to how it worked before the last update.

Thanks for the report. There haven't been any changes to the tactics familiarity for quite a while now but I will have a look if I can find any scenario that could explain your situation. Keep me posted with any changes you notice.

Things continue to move in expected directions.  I know it sounds crazy, but they really were moving in opposite for a time being.  Is it possible that when you switch, the old one continues increasing for a while and the new one, if not in the red, still decreases?  Regardless, things seem to be working again as expected, except for my team wins, ha.

Currently experiencing this same issue. Tried a new tactic for about 10 games, didn't work so I went back to the old one. The old one has now been in use for ~10 games, but still keeps decreasing, while the tryout tactic keeps increasing.

Still ongoing. The tactic that I've used for the past 16 games has continued to drop, and just now dropped to yellow familiarity. Started at very high blue.

I'm having the same issue in Lumber I think.

The progress turned around at 17th game from changing, now it's going back in the right direction.

Can anybody else confirm Erzac's findings?  Are tactics still increasing in the right direction?

Indeed they are.

Played games 11, 12 and 15 of the season with different PP tactics (with red familiarity), then went back to what I had used before and have used this ever since, now 11 games in a row. And I just noticed that the occasionally used PP tactic familiarity has gone up to orange familiarity, while the most used has continued to decrease. This is in dangles.
