When's the BETA out speculation thread FM 21

Doesn't make a lot of sense to me. From a UK perspective, where we have a lockdown in place, when you think about the amount of streaming, Zooming and gaming that's going on, not to mention release of new AC game today which will be a significantly larger download, I can't see FM downloads being more than a drop in the ocean of the available/used bandwidth.

But Still, Gaffer Miles said it won't be available for download "during working-hours" because of this. No hope here for a daytime-release.

As per past experience and general understanding and under the law of speculation, there has to be a quorum of SI staff online before it goes live. There are very complex calculations to determine the exact amount of SI staff that has to be online before it happens. It might take me a couple of hours or days to finalize those. I will keep you posted.

changelist for that file whatever this means

It's basically the same as the other packages. It's just a steam key for European countries. Nothing exciting by itself, but I guess any kind of work on the steam app could be a good sign.

This is false advertisement and probably persuable in court

Eff me, get over yourself man.

Ok, it seems some ads have made their way into the wild prematurely, but SI have always said that beta release is around 2 weeks prior to launch.

If you click on the update in steamdb it has the option to install??? Is it happening??? 

 

That's just a default steam install link that steamdb generates. It won't work if you can't actually install the game, as is the case with FM21 right now.

Sure, and I'm not disputing he said it - or for that matter that he most likely knows better than I do (although I do work in IT industry). 

Just that I don't immediately understand the potential for it to impact significantly on bandwidth.

If we're going to speculate about steamdb stuff then I think this is the most promising sign:

During the last few days, updates to the steam app have been made from 07:41 UTC all the way up to 02:30 UTC. That seem to have been the work hours during this crunch period.
Yet, yesterday, the final update was on 19:18:37 UTC and there has been no update so far. 

Could easily be the case that the final beta candidate was pushed yesterday, left up for some stability testing over night and is now ready to release. 🤔

I understand the many pages for your to read - but person was only complaining for the adverts - not the beta release.!

Get over yourself!

The guy was suggesting legal action, which is frankly ridiculous.

There's an ad on my Instagram feed saying it's available... but still no Twitter confirmation.

Thank heavens you posted this, it's not been mentioned on the thread at all.

With the other weird decisions that the government have made recently, nothing would surprise me.

Apologies for not having time to read all 126 pages :thup:

It's part of the ritual of this annual thread. You need to know exactly what's gone on before posting.

I remember when this thread was only joy, hope and excitement. How far it has fallen. 

It still is. You must be on another beta thread on another FM site and got them both confused

We're glad you've seen the error of your ways. Now get back to reading them, there will be a test in the future, so prepare well.
