    Default Is it just me or the game got harder?

    The way i see my games, either my players play like crap or the other team (weaker) got no problems in scoring?

    Yeah, I thought it was just me.

    Glad to see others think this, too.

    very hard or ai bias?

    i jsut lost 4-1 to sunderland away with arsenal after receiving about 10 long term injuries

    but managed to draw 2-2 with athletico away

    very strange considering on all games on previous fms i usually beat or at least dont get owned by mid level prem sides

    It's tactically a lot harder due to the lack of Barrows/Farrows.

    Certainly harder. So far played 3 in the Premiership with Arsenal and have a 1-1-1 record. Beat Stoke at home 2-0....through 2 penalties. Didn't create anything other than that. Lost away to Rapid Wien 0-1 in the CL qualifiers, managed to win 3-0 at home though.

    Definitely harder. Played 4 league matches with Liverpool, won 1 (1-0) and drew 3 (0-0, 1-1 and 2-2, the latter two I went ahead all the time but they kept pegging back.)

    The injuries enhance the difficulty too though

    i think every year people find it harder to start off because they're learning about the game and the new features and how to utilise them best.

    So I'm not sure that the game is harder, it's just that we're all worse at the game but hpefully with some practice we'll get better.

    Yeah, it does seem a little more difficult

    Feedback section is nice tho, at least i know i'm limiting the AI to long efforts too... so i feel as if i have something right somewhere

    I found it very difficult due to player fitness (not talking about injury issues) None of my players could player more than one match in a row and I ended up having to start games with players still on 80-90% fitness as I had no uninjured replacements! Very odd as I did pre-season properly and everyone started off match fit but one game kept them tired for ages.

    I thought it gotten easier than 08 actually. The injuries make rotation a pain, especially if you have a small squad, but if you can plug critical defensive problems as well as set opposition instructions it gets easier. Started with Arsenal and I'm leading the table by October/November, despite having constant injuries to key players like adebayor, gallas and van persie.

    I have the same problem too. The condition of my players never gets any better and this causes my players to become tired even before half time. This causes my team to play poorly in matches. Hope its sorted by the time the Official game is released.
