In comparison to FM17, FM18 has:
· Fewer major (28+ day) injuries, more minor (4-7 days) injuries
· Introduced slight (1-3 day) injuries, for example the “tight” group of injures such as a tight hamstring
· Better balanced training intensities, High and Very High will be less punishing
· Added new injuries and rebalanced existing injuries and their lengths/chance of occurring
All this means that FM18 will see a greater injury frequency than FM17 but fewer days lost to injury overall. In FM17, English top division players lost in total 15,000+ days to injury per season, in FM18 these same players now lose 13,500 days to injury per season. Meaning players spend less time injured in FM18 than in FM17.
