why would they pay two people when they can pay a developer to sit on his ass all day, rush up a new UI design for the new release and still get paid? it simply would make no sense!

Is it bad that I would have preordered fm18 if they said "It's fm17 with fm15s regen faces, no other changes have been made"

Luke Flores
Luke Flores

well, I am really funding this mess, because I too pre-ordered FM18

i would buy it for a high price if they included team talks like this, or enabled physical fights on the pitch like in the old championship manager

im pretty sure ill be forced to use my set 20 + 3 players, maybe callup for an injury or something (maybe ill be able to use 30 players for some of these and only callup my final 23 after?)

fuck it ill just cancel them when i see how it actually is

Colton Gonzalez

Adam Perry

Oh, is that one big break? I didn't even look at the dates lmfao. I definitely wouldn't play that many friendlies at the end of a season when your players are borderline exhausted. I'd probably cancel everything besides Luxembourg, Malta, KSA, and Brasil.

Joseph Lee
Joseph Lee

Their refusal to upgrade their extremely old CBs basically got me the title twice in a row now.

its the world cup preparation, when i saw i had that much time, i basically said "damn i can make berardi score atleast 20 goals and pad the shit out of him".

But yeah, my italian tactic familiarity is already maxed so i dont need to play as much. Its just juicy to think about how hard you can pad.

Nolan Jackson

Nice, but why the fuck did they ever remove this in the first place, fucking retards. Wait, I know why - central players that ran wide with ball were ridiculously OP in one of the FMs, thats why. Can't fix their match engine, better just remove options.

Andrew Phillips

FM15 was the last FM worth spending money on.

And I don't have any intention to "cheat". If I wanted to just coast through, I'd just start a PSG save. Where I'm the only team with money in a League that's almost completely devoid of it.

I didn't imply a judgement on that. It's a lot more like:
Expecting an official tool to work on a non-official copy of the game
Just think it through for a second. As well as , obviously.

Where I'm the only team with money in a League that's almost completely devoid of it
Get to the CL and you'll be drowning in useless shekels because reputation matters much more. And once you'll get your rep there then your save will become pointless as you'll enjoy easy domination. Suck it up and start grinding.

a few months maybe. I find it usually goes like this
player pissed off about blocked transfer
obligatory team meeting that results in nobody supporting the player's complaint
~3 months of using the player despite his shitty morale
club that was chasing him loses interest
he announces that he's no longer unhappy
offer him a new, longer contract
accepts
a few weeks later, getting close to the next transfer window
some clubs start showing interest in him
he gets pissed off that you won't sell him again

He really started dominating this season. How far can this lad go?

Kevin Rivera
Kevin Rivera

How do I get this formation to work?
I get fucking steamrolled every time.

Ryder Gutierrez
Ryder Gutierrez

I play with a similar formation except FB's on attack and IF's on support with shoot less often and an AP on support instead of DLP Also, try poacher instead of advanced forward, I've noticed he gets too deep if he's an AF while staying a P will mean he's up front waiting on trough balls or just holds up the ball for your AM.

That being said, it depends on what kind of players you have and, considering this is a fairly attacking formation, it will leave you opened at the back and vulnerable to counter attacks down the sides of the pitch and to long balls down the center.

Nathan Thompson
Nathan Thompson

It just feels like my midfield is non-existant. I'm getting rekt by any variation of a 4-4-2

Jacob Bell
Jacob Bell

Should be 27th assuming it comes out exactly 2 weeks before the 10th of Nov

Lucas Peterson
Lucas Peterson

Well it pretty much is and you probably have an inferior squad to top it off. I'd suggest looking at the stats to see where your team is the weakest. If your CMd isn't getting large number of interceptions and tackles he's likely part of the problem.

Dominic Watson
Dominic Watson

attacking plus just "flexible" plus attacking wingbacks with little defensive support from midfield will likely get you raped from the flanks because you have no defence there and without very fluid nobody else will step to there when needed

Leo Ortiz

Just don't play him.

Daniel Garcia
Daniel Garcia

I mean, does one of those options make it less likely for the guy to be injured in the future?

Christopher Stewart
Christopher Stewart

Obviously it will affect his recovery and how he plays as well as his match fitness and condition. A.K.A.: unless you absolutely need him, don't play him.

Michael Torres
Michael Torres

You seem to not get it.
He's asking which of the options is better for the player's future, or if it doesn't matter.

I'd always let them play through injury, as far as I know the injury proneness attribute is fixed anyway. This way, you can at least still use him at 85%+ condition in case the rest of your team implodes in the following few days, which can sometimes happen.

If you're sure that you won't use him then just let him go to the doc.

Henry Collins
Henry Collins

as far as I know the injury proneness attribute is fixed anyway
Unfortunately no, it isn't: it can increase. Also, huge injuries can lower PA.

Dominic Wright
Dominic Wright

It can also decrease if you're extremely careful for years and his Nat. Fit. increases. I knew it could increase but didn't know it could decrease (there's no saving Sagna though). That's why I wasn't replying straight to his question: just don't play him since an already injured player is more likely to pick up another injury regardless. Just don't tempt it.

You can improve in training injuries by verifying if no one has is personal training intensity on Very High intensity (High is fine). Also, if you put more match training, you also need to raise the intensity: if you players don't train enough they'll also get injured.

Better fitness coaches to help IME; try to poach two good ones and get rid of the shitters.

Neymar is absurd, and i enjoy watching him to see what kind of ridiculousness is going to come next. that and the fact that Dani Alves is apparently in the midfield (like one of midfield three) should be interesting.

I enjoy watching teams get rolled, and PSG are doing just that this season honestly.

Fekir's performance yesterday was brilliant, it was a pleasant nice match to watch overall as a neutral.

FM literally a victim of its own fanbase or at the least the vocal minority of its fanbase. Its just for the morons that don't recognise that 6 injuries at a time isn't rare and that if you're rushing somebody back into 90 mins immediately after coming back from a serious injury that is gonna end badly. If people were less moronic then Miles probably wouldn't have felt the need to hold everybody's hand and walk them through just how fucking retarded they are.

In real life 5k people in a 6k stadium is supposed to be more intimidating than 7k people in a 15k stadium, I'm positive someone posted the autistic study about it here

And I was thinking that 25 000 in a 27 000 stadium could arguably be more intimidating than 11 000 in a 12 500 stadium.

You'll have to wait for him to rot some more, get released, then rot for a good six months(if he's not poached somewhere else), then you can buy him. But by then he won't make any progress anymore and you'll just be wasting money (not that you care but still).

reee, what the fuck is that schedule? It doesn't even factor in cup matches and champions league.

Evan Hill

It's not an issue, it's a feature. FM has been struggling to make coherent calendars for years.

Adrian Fisher

are there even away seats in a milan derby

William Lopez

y-yeah, the east stand of the stadium for when ac milan is away, the west stand for inter when they're away

Logan Turner

Well,that's one way to end a bad run.

Christian Allen

It's annoying, the schedule is tight and there's not enough good thai players to give the team a good depth (4 foreigners allowed only)

plus side, my team cucked the second favorite to win the champions league this year in play-offs on an extra time penalty

Owen King

paid 500 for the orange stand for the 19 home games, for the derby even if it's "away" we got tickets sold before of the general release

i never understood where the cameras are, and for the second time in a row i'm missing the ac milan choreography because i'll be literally under that shite

Yes, you have to concentrate and work really hard to completely fail and be poor here, I think. But most things are expensive here, so there's that.

I think there are a few people that choose a criminal or 'alternative' pathway just because the readily available bourgeoisie lifestyle bores them, but I guess there is a bit of that everywhere in Europe. I would think that Breivik, for example, was motivated mainly by anti-intellectualism, boredom and an unhealthy obsession with Slavs.

Levi Hughes

Well he wants the transfer, I just don't have the money (and would feel silly spending 30mil on him)

He's rotting as is. Sad

Isaac Barnes

Yeah, that's why I'm surprised with the path of my version of Lo Celso. Instead of getting released and rotting until retirement like described in this article:
https://strikerless.com/2017/08/12/the-cuckoo-transfer-market-strategy-let-others-develop-the-talents-for-you/
He got a cheap transfer from PSG to Rennes and actually developed very nicely, to the point where 30M€ was a bargain.

Unfortunately this was just an odd-man out: most of the good players end up going through the Spartan way: make it or die.

Blake Allen

Oh thank god. he wanted to leave in summer and in winter but no club bid for him so he agreed to stay.

I somehow feel that a team with six times my wage budget and a five as big stadium that manages to be below me in PL (3rd vs 4th) needs more than just a new manager.

The board fucked me in the ass again. Just the day before I protested the transfer of another player (for 5.5m) and now they automatically accepted this fucking shit

There is the option of hoping for a board takeover with a less intrusive board, or possibly of finding another club.
