    Default Match Engine Update 13.2.1 - ME 1325 Constructive feedback here please

    Thank you all for your feedback on the last ME 1324, we've made the changes listed below and have now released ME 1325.

    Please provide any thoughts and feedback on the new match engine in this thread.

    ME 1325:
    • Further refined engagement of ball player
    • Toned down speed players can run with ball a little
    • Slight toning down of run with ball probability
    • Fine-tuned kick and header accuracy a little further
    These changes should help to fix the following issues;
    • Players dribbling through the middle of the pitch too easily, too often
    • High number of goals per game
    • Teams winning games by margins of 5+ goals far too often
    Other useful links

    Have a great Christmas everyone.

    well said - were all here with families etc and the guys working on this patch are wel...working on this patch for us all to enjoy - like someone said they could have quite easily left this until after Christmas - but their passion for the game is such that they felt this wasn't acceptable - again thank you SI

    The changelist is in the OP - nothing affecting injuries. Probably because there aren't excessive amounts compared to real life.

    Got to say that I had a feeling we would be graced with an update before Christmas Day. No less welcome though. I will be sure to leave feedback after a couple of hours game time.

    I am not talking smack about the game developers, im talking smack about the users that spent one month calling other users stupid because, in their minds, the ME had no problems and no one knew how to play.

    The ME had problems, they were fixed. Then some more problems appeared (wingers playing like Maradona against England), those problems seem to be fixed with this patch.

    As for some of the users here. The question remains, you were calling people stupid because the "ME was perfect". If it was so goddamn perfect... why did it need 2 patches? Ill tell you, it wasn't perfect and you were all sheep that could not comprehend that there were serious problems with the game!

    Click [FM] -> [About Football Manager] and it should show that you have version 13.2.1 with ME 1325.

    Check in your in-game preferences (top left-corner) or game status screen and it'll show you the version number. Thanks.

    I must admit, as a major skeptic of FM13 and its match engine, that this is an incredible effort from you guys at SI to release a patch on Christmas Eve.

    Hey all, thanks a lot for the update.

    I'm out of town right now for the holidays and am deciding whether to go online with steam long enough to d/l using my network tethering from my iphone. I have a lot of data per month, but I'm just curious on the actual size of the patch?

    Thanks again.

    Try going to STEAM --> Library and see if it says "1 Item complete" at the bottom. If it does, click it, and see if isnt FM.

    If not, try restarting STEAM.

    great released a fix for this

    but they've completely ignore editor bug forum since last week patch as problems that was suppose to fixed in the patch for the editor for those that like to create and expand database still doesn't work properly, not one issue raised since that patch has been reviewed so that we know its been looked at

    i am happy for those that are able to play but those that like playing like i do with an editted databases still cant play the game,

    we paided are money like everyone else and cant do what we are supposed to be able to do with the editor which they provide so why bother providing it

    Thanks for the update though still trying to find an answer for my previous post:-

    Has the pressing of central defenders closing down central midfielders - even though they have instructions to cover and not close down been confirmed as a bug? It would be great to hear an acknowledgement if this is indeed a minor issue.

    I noticed that Ackter wasn't a fan of 2 covering defenders in an earlier post on this thread which doesn't spell good omens for my side as I played with 2 covering defenders in the last patch with reasonable success, now however my defenders are having a torrid time. My concept is detailed in this thread :- http://community.sigames.com/showthr...06#post8402406

    It's disappointing that I currently can't get my idea to work as I believe it was well thought out and was playing to my strengths (fast defence) rather than exploiting the match engine.

    It's an ME update and all other issues will be looked at for the next big update I'm sure..

    For now, please keep on topic and leave this for ME feedback only.

    Thanks.

    full backs still seem to run too much with the ball.
    my liverpool team just got ripped apart my man city because clichy kept dribbling through my entire team as if the ball was stuck to his big toe. he starts off deep in his own half, runs 70 yard up field, jinxing past every one and smashes it into the back of the net from 2 yards out.
    i ended up losing 4-1 while playing a 4231 formation with two defensive midfielders and 3 normal midfielders.

    i get it with my players too. most noticebly Enrique.

    Played 1 game with update so far, still seems to be a lot of running with the ball, Antonio Valencia just ran past about 3 players and scored from the byline basically. Will try out a few other matches and update more. PS im chelsea.

    United and Chelsea had 35 and 39 shots respectively in their first games after the update, but tbf they played against relegation zone teams.

    Ok i did my first game where i've stopped when the last patch came out, it's quite a hard game as it was away against Chelsea.

    I lost 5-2, not bothered since the last patch came out there's something wrong with my tactics i'd guess as my lone striker simply stopped working.

    + It's good to see that the markings are now better, with CB's covering the side if FB's get too forward.
    + Tackling seems more urgent on situations there's gonna be a lotta space.
    + Dribblings seem fixed.

    - On these 7 goals, 4 were headers which people were complaining about being missed too much.. i think i know what the next complain is.. hehe, no it was just a game no reason to conclude anything but they did seem very lethal.

    Only downer i've noticed, although this might be related to my tactics, is why the players keep trying to pass the ball to places where's there an opponent in front?

    This is an issue we are looking into, can you please try the following to see if helps you go into Preferences -> Match and where it says 3D change it from Automatic to 60fps and try going down the list and if it fixes the issue for you.

    Has Closing Down been tweaked?

    In the previous patch I had my defenders on low Closing Down (3 clicks) and it seemed to work, but now they seem to back off until the player has entered the penalty area.

    You had found a fix for an issue that is now corrected, so as it was expected your defenders will back off too much, leave closing down as default and you should be fine.

    There has been some changes to engagement of ball player. On low closing down (3 clicks) the option is Own Area so it will be deep before the engage the player.

    No, steam will update regardless of the game's language, close your game, restart steam see if it updates. If not click on your game properties on steam and verify the cache, that should do it.

    Looks like I'm going to start again. Again.
    Pre-patch; 8 wins in a row. After patch; 4 defeats in a row

    Problem is, I'm not a tactical genius so I don't really know exactly where I was going right before. And now that the game is updated, I don't really know where I'm going wrong

    Wow impressive work SI. Haven't updated yet but to get an update out at this time in the holiday is impressive. Hope people appreciate what these guys do. Not many (if any) other games companies who give this kind of service.

    I just hope it doesn't wreck my tactics with Monaco! I'm on a good run!

    I'd suggest giving it some time if it hasn't updated yet, especially those in Asia, Russia or any other regional area's... it may take some time for the clients to update.

    You can try verifying your cache or restarting steam or changing download location.. but i'm sure it will update soonly

    Do I need to start a new save for the new patch to take affect?

    We always recommend a new game to get best out of a patch, but it is not required, you can continue your save game.

    Okay, so i know its very early and i've only played a League Cup round but here is what i saw:

    - Dribblings have been reduced down to 5-7 at average for the fastest and/or most technical players
    - Tackles are down to 8-10 average
    - Distance covered is still abit high IMO, with the highest bracket being 12-14 km average

    So far it looks much better overall.

    It's been explained ad nauseaum why this year is a bit of a one off regarding the ME.

    Try verifying your cache Razoritel:

    http://www.sigames.com/faq/fm13.php?version=pcmac&id=83

    Also... try changing the download region in steam settings...

    If lots are having the same issue I suspect it's just a matter of waiting for download regions to update before you get the update..

    Thanks indeed for releasing this n the middle of the holidays.

    However, I've noticed a complete lack of through balls since the last two 13.2 patches. I mean none whatsoever, even though my instructions are clear. Anyone else noticed that? I haven't seen one in over 30 games (and I watch the whole game always) since 13.2. Instead all attacks are through the flanks...

    Has anybody noticed during night games, it's dark during the game (or at least it seems dark) but at half time and full time, while the camera spins around the ground in the background (behind the team talk screen) it's daylight? I can see clouds/blue sky.

    Really strange.

    Fewer goals (though Real just won 8-2) but free kicks seem to be back to their 13.1.x version, no power in them whatsoever.

    Regarding ME updates, Is there any possibility of having the option to delay the implementation of ME updates until the close season in game, it really throws the whole "im the manager ive created this tactic and played 75% of the season accordingly" to have it all changed at the drop of a hat. ESPECIALLY online.

    The ME updated today and its altered the effects of slaved over tactics, if we could hold it off until the close season rather than the ME updating 2 days before a champs league knockout game etc etc, at least this way we would have the choice to end the current season on the terms it started it on, and then start the new season with the new set of rules you give us.

    This isn't something we can currently do, but I will propose it as a feature for possible future versions, but I don't know if this would be possible.

    I wonder when it will be fixed that Wingers scoring after running with the ball from the crosses on the goalline ... this is so annoying and happens every game .. im watching football since many years and this happens almost NEVER... and btw .. my players still dribbling with the ball thru the whole field

    It's possible to deactivate automatic updates in steam, therefore you can chose when you want to update the game.

    I'm second in the league with Southampton in the first season, and despite doing ridiculously well I'm just not enjoying it at all. All my games seem to be won through counter-attacking despite not having a counter-attacking tactic, the prolificacy of both teams is laughable and all in all it just feels wrong. After playing three matches on the new patch here are a couple of things that are still not right:

    Goalkeepers are still shockingly bad. A howler maybe a couple of times a season is fine, but having sometimes two every game is just stupid. Also noticed that my keeper once picked up the ball and slid out over the line. Should have been a corner, but he just walked back on and carried on with the game.

    Fullbacks still insist on playing like Glen Johnson - dribbling far too much, not passing in obvious situations and cutting inside before blasting the ball miles wide. And yes, my instructions are all the opposite of what I've just said.

    No matter how many men you have in midfield, I constantly get 'we're being overrun in midfield'. This happens whether I play 4-2-4, 4-4-2, 4-3-1-2 (Narrow), 4-1-2-1-2 etc etc. Just can't win.

    Finally, fed up of having to trawl through my Mac and change the info.plst after every update to get the screen to display correctly. Appreciate the effort, but like Mr Hough said, five patches to get it anywhere near playable/enjoyable is laughable really. Just gonna call 13 a write off and wait for 14.

    Total shots per game is still over 30 in current ME.

    In the aspect of number of shooting, update 13.1.0 had the balance.
    The problem was the low accuracy of the shooting and too many long shots.

    After update 13.2.0, number of shooting has skyrocketed and the balance was lost.

    In this update 13.2.1, now you are making the accuracy of shooting even lower.

    *****
    Please try this solution.

    1. Please increase the accuracy of shooting from the base of 13.1.0.
    Increase to the 1.4 goals per game for Messi. (Messi scored one goal per game with User and AI manager in 13.1.0)
    2. Solve the long shot problem.
    Let the players to prefer pass or dribble when they are in the poor site for long shots.

    Real Football numbers in this season
    Chelsea 8-0 Aston Villa ; Chelsea 24 shots
    Barcelona 5-1 Athletic ; Barcelona 19 shots
    R.Madrid 5-0 Mallorca ; RM 12 shots

    I want to play Football manager, which is a simulation game not an arcade game.
    Current FM13 is Fifa13 without control

    I'm about to try a new game but I really wanted to thank SI for their comitment to the community. I don't know any other studio that would work hard on an update the day before Christmas. Thank you.

    And again nothing is done about the real problem - defending.
    It's not just atrocious, it's laughable.
    You've got some serious making up to do SI, or you'll lose at least 1 customer and a lot of your reputability and trust.

    It's not possible, no.
    The Steam DRM does not effectively allow deactivating updates to continue playing an older version, and the game DRM only permits Steam online play, so online leagues (which was the subject) can't choose to keep an older version.

    Ok thanks for the update, its not a moan but by changing the ME your naturally "moving the goalposts" so to speak, and that causes much annoyance mid season.

    Just seen west brom beat chelsea 7-1. Im enjoying this patch.

    Having got the game the day it came out i felt the match engine was originally pretty bad with so many ridiculous things going on. Having played with the patches since though i think the difference is clear to see. It has dramatically improved and i'm really enjoying it now.

    I can't shake the feeling that Strikers are "nerfed" since 13.2 was introduced.
    I have Vucinic,Matri,Quagliarella and since January I've brought in Cavani to Juventus. Together they scored "only" 26 of 81 goals with Vucinic leading them with 12 total.

    I thank SI for taking the time to put out a new patch on Christmas eve

    But it still seems like there are loads of shots every game 30-40 overall plus ive found my players are more prone to taking long shots when they have no chance at all of scoring. I've tried work ball in to the box and set the players who are doing it to long shots rarely but they seem to be doing it still even when there are good passing opportunities available.

    Im not normally one to moan and usually just get on with it but every time i get a good game going with a decent tactic we are getting patches which as said above change the goalposts which is getting pretty annoying tbh.

    But as i said i do appreciate SI doing what they are doing as i doubt any other big developer would do the same
