Neil could just pop in the thread and say it’s not today just to mess with us!

I refuse to believe he would behave that way! Neil is pure class. A gentleman of the first order.

Please keep in mind; the measurements below are highly accurate (as are their relationships to each other). However, the descriptions are for entertainment purposes only. I have no real idea when it will arrive. Unless you win money, then you owe me 10%.

NOW!

Never gonna happen!

At some point in the future (also; At some point)

We’re in pure Nostradamus territory here. We have a magic 8 ball and even it said, “Ask again later”.

In the future

This isn’t going to happen during any variety of soon you care to use. In fact, it’s pretty far out there. Not as far as ‘at some point’, but we’re certainly not suggesting you book vacation time just yet. We’re probably talking about something that is possible within the current time line. Assuming, of course, the Mayans, Vikings, and 47 other random stone carvings were wrong and we’re still here after all that crazy ‘end of the world’ stuff.

In the near future

This is absolutely, positively, without question, a possibility. In fact, it might even be a real possibility. But as to when, we’ll have to get back to you on that one.

Soon™

No lie. It’s going to happen. It’s going to happen really freakin’, like, eventually. But it will happen!

“Soon”

It’s official! We have given consideration to a possible date and we now have several possibilities!

Soon

We’ve narrowed the date down to something within the calendar year!

soon

No really, we have a date now! It’s even penciled in on a calendar somewhere!

MoreSoonerish

We have a date, and we’re probably going to tell you what that date is…soon!

Incredisoon

OK! We’re done messin’ around. We have a date, we’ve found the calendar we wrote it on, and we are going to tell you. Like right freakin’ shortly! Seriously!

 

Tomorrowish-esque™

This is going to happen within the next 24 hours. Give or take some random number of hours which may or may not exceed an amount equal to the number of miles between the reader and the International Date Line divided by 163.97241. Unless the person is actually standing on the International Date Line at the time of reading, in which case the world will end in a cataclysmic divide by zero error and none of this will matter anyway. This is all barring any conflicts with ‘The Schedule’, of course.

As soon as possible

Time being the slippery thing it is, this has quite probably already happened. If not, it is very likely to happen while someone is typing up the message telling you when it will happen. Assuming, that it is in fact possible.

 

Modifiers, adjustments, and other fun stuff.

Capitalization

As a general rule, capitalization will tip you off as to a measurement’s place in time. Capital letters denote a longer period of time than lower case letters. This applies to all uses of capitalization when dealing with time. Thus Soon is longer than soon. Likewise, MoreSoonerish, Moresoonerish, and moresoonerish are all incremetally shorter periods from longest to shortest.

TM and its uses;

The notorious ™ has very specific meanings. It denotes a longer period of time than the word or phrase would otherwise represent without the addition of the ™.

“Quotes"

The use of quotes, like the use of TM and Capitalization has specific meaning. It is another measure of extending the noted period of time. Though it denotes a shorter extension than either ™ or Capitalization.

Combined notation

When you see a combination of modifiers (™, quotes, and capitalization) you must consider the impact of all modifiers on the base measurement. The more modifiers, the larger the expansion of time from the base measurement.

Sub topic, but what player are you interested in seeing the most? Curious how what they've done to our youth team (Mason, Reece, Abraham etc).

 

Lamptey, Grealish, and errrrrrr, yeah, I can't think further. Just want beta.

Out of interest does anyone use the beta and carry it forward to the full game? is it not wise to do?

 

 

Sometimes yes. Sometimes no. Last year I played my save that started in Beta for about 8 seasons. It depends if there’s any bugs that aren’t save compatible

I start my long-term save on every beta. Never had serious problems, there's bugs ofc but when they are patched out the game is fine.

This thread is G.O.A.T. Thanks guys for entertaining me while at work. 

Be nice to Miles and all of SI group, they do fantastic job every year!

Thanks

Nothing in this thread is designed to be nasty towards the fine folk at SI. It is merely an excuse to engage in silliness,  share GIFs and discuss the menu at Greggs.

I must admit, this release has peaked my interest. However, that comes with BIG expectations!

Depends how serious the bugs are. If they are save compatible then it's no problem. It'll be if there's some major they have to sort out, it may not affect already saved games.

That is fair enough. 

I don't know why, but I have the feeling that this edition is an noticable improvement to the years before. Hopefully match engine wise most of all.

That is why this thread is so fantastic. I just hope the positive people in this thread beats those who has nothing but complaints about basically everything SI does. I usually read some of Miles twitter replies and there is just too much negative in there.

I've found the total opposite.

 

Play a few games before bed just after release and BOOM! Before you know it it's June.

Lol yeah but that's the point, internally time pauses, which is what matters after all, enjoying oneself

Does it usually gets released first then SI makes the announcement? My steam page is on standby since morning...

Yeah, it usually sneaks up on us and then this thread gets locked with a link to the announcement :)
