Football Manager 2021 Official Feedback Thread


Recommended Posts

Okay, three games into my Zebre beta save & we're scoring for fun, 12 in 3 with Dybala playing AMC Treq & he's scored four in two, very happy with that

The ME has deffo changed, passes are less successful, less sweet through balls & more goals are coming from set pieces, probably balanced for the best but it's less fun :D

Can't find anything recent around this. When and where did you post? If you don't keep issues up to date, there's no guarantee it can be fixed for you.

I can give you a ticket number if you’d like.

please keep your comments to yourself if they are related to my problem since you’re here to stir the pot.

I'm not trying to stir the pot though, I'm just saying that I can't see your post in the bugs forum anywhere. If you don't report it there, it's not going to be picked up and it's not going to be solved. I was actually trying to help you. :)

just the logo pack i’ve been using since the beta! like I said, have not experienced similar issues with my RBNY and Middlesbrough saves, so it’s something with NOB, gonna try loading a different club in Argentina to see what happens.

Ok. Just thought I'd bring it up. Some people aren't aware that add ons could cause issues.

Sounds like something in the way youth teams are set up in Argentina then.

To be fair to the OP, SI seem to have changed the way crash bugs are supported now. The crashes and technical issues forum is not open to posts now. I thought the same thing as you, but it seems SI want crashes through the support system now.

I always play long saves. I like to start with a small team and then work my way up. The first couple of seasons are always a challenge. 
Eventually you end up with a 4.5/5 star team and you will win the Premier League and CL every single year, with the occasional exception in CL semi/final.
The game gets boring and repetitive, also because of the complete lack of immersion and repeating press conferences. 
I always check what the competitive teams do and the AI is just terrible, most teams had a btter squad when the game started.
The only way to find a new challenge is to move away from the club.

If the AI can't keep up, or it would be to harsh for our PC's then I suggest to use "balancing scripts".
In other words, if my team has eleven 5 star individuals, then maybe it's time to spawn some awesome regens to other clubs and specifically the competitors.
Make sure they hold on to them and then after a couple of seasons the challenge might return.

Fair enough, my bad in that case. Thanks for point that out. :)

I tried a new save file with Argentino Juniors and didn't experience the crash. Can you believe this, my favorite club is the only one whose youth team crashes the game!

Ok fair enough, perhaps it is because you cannot make new posts for crash errors and such, so I had to submit it via email. This is the first time I've needed to report a bug, so are you telling me I did it incorrectly?

No, as anagain stated, they've apparently changed the way some issues are reported/logged, my fault. Just wanted to make sure it was actually logged as this thread tends to be flooded with people complaining about stuff without actually logging the issue where it can be picked up. :)

@bielsadidnothingwrong

I get massive lag looking at the Newell youth development center (probably because of the massive number of potential first team players in their oversized reserves/u20s), but no crashes. Was assuming it might've been your computer struggling with the load, but since you can handle Argentinos, who seem to have just as many players in their dev center, I'm not so sure anymore. Could give deleting a lot of youngsters from Newell a shot and then loading the dev center, see if it has something to do with that.

Apologies if this has already been raised / covered, but I'm seeing some seemingly unrealistic expectations in League Two.

It may be correct (and a result of over ambitious Chairmen), but its significantly different to the Beta.

Not an exhaustive list, but the ones I've checked (media prediction - first season expectations - second season expectations):

Stevenage - 16th - top half finish - automatic promotion

Cambridge - 17th - top half finish - automatic promotion

Morecambe - 22nd - avoid relegation - automatic promotion

In fact, all of the 'bottom half' with the exception of three clubs expect to at least make the playoffs in season two.

Feels a little odd and over-ambitious?

Trying to load up a new save file now, I would hate to have to mess with the database as that’s one of the primary reasons I manage Newell’s is the development. Glad to hear yours took a second to load, as mine did the same when loading Argentinos Jr, so hopefully it’s nothing major!

Yes, I get it, there are some upset customers in the thread. I don’t want to contribute to the negativity, but this is really frustrating!! I really have been enjoying the beta so I am mostly disappointed that I can’t get stuck in already! Cheers

I'm Chelsea in this image.

 

Still finding it relatively easy to restrict the AI into not being able to play the game. Kinda disappointed that this wasn't dealt with better. They still seem to be setting up extremely negative/cautious in a lot of games that I've seen considering the caliber of players they have.

 

This is with all my own tactics/instructions, no exploits. Surely Spurs should be at least able to manage a shot of any kind after 3 corners, 86% passes completed and 45% possession?

Did I get scammed on the ME? People keep saying offside is fixed, yet here I am still seeing completely absurd offside calls...

Then report them in the correct bugs section. Perhaps your tactical instructions highlights a bug they are unaware of.

What the hell has been changed with the match engine? Suddenly my centre backs are absolute hoofing the ball to the opposition and then parting like the Red Sea to allow the striker a free chance!

For me the main game has too many screens and button presses that dont do anything and is extremley bloated. 

I much prefer FM Touch. I suppose some people like stats galore, media duties, pre team talk team talks, player psychology. For me its hassle. I just want to buy and sell players, play games and manage the team.

This is a known issue with the screen hanging on the development centre. There is a thread on this and if you can load your save game it will help!

My 2 BPDs on Cover are playing great.

Might have to try a cover role. Completely perplexed because we were playing the ball out with ease and suddenly now just aimlessly hoofing the ball FM20 style!!

Thanks

If you play a DM DLP on defend I find you get some nice triangle passing before playing it to an MC/wide.

I am doing something wrong? When setting up my manager, I set my preferred tactical style as control possession. However, when I start a game, my profile says my tactical style is route one.

Anyone else having this problem?

I'm not imagining this , I'm definitely seeing more long shots. Nothing as bad as FM 20 but still an uptick from beta.

 

Also seeing more players taking shots from standing positions rather than running onto the ball and scoring, this might be me imagining it though because it might have been like that in beta.

I'm playing the demo. Any way to turn off attribute masking?

Really like the game so far, nice and slick.

Turning attribute masking on and off is an option only at the set up stage of a new save- once you start, it cant be amended.

Sorry I didn't phrase that very well.

What I meant was is there an option to turn it off being starting a new save?

All it has that I can see on the main menu is quick start and there seems to be no option in preferences or otherwise to turn it off.

I just want to mess around on the game in the demo looking around etc.

It is not a preference feature it is only available at set up- I don't use the demo, but I cant see any reason why it wouldn't be available in the demo as this is just a short version of the full game.  Try starting a clean new save with a new manager profile and see if that works.

It’s because there is no option to turn off retina display this year. Instead, you have do the following:

Go to finder; Application support ; Steam ; steamapps\common\Football Manager 2021
Right click on fm21
Get Information and click "Open in low resolution"
 
This should result in much reduced fan noise or excess. 

Does this significantly affect graphics?

Just seen in the start of the season Depay moving to Man Citi in 17M .. this make sense? 

One year contract, probably no interest in resigning, while 17m is a tad low (is that 17m flat or 17m+ clauses since irl he was supposed to cost around 25m), it's not that strange of a transfer.

Tried that and no the option to turn off attribute masking is not there at all. You can't even select the playable leagues etc within the country.

official game is good but problems have arised that were not problems in the beta ( loads of people told si you should have patched it )

work permits for young players, you apply you then dont hear anything and apply again and again and again day after day but nothing ever happens.

team talks, you approach the defender and they are motivated. you approach the midfielder they are motivated and the forwards are demotivated and then apporach the forwards and the defenders are no longer motivated ?

players that play regularly losing tactical familiarity ?

talks when bringing subs on makes no difference to the players coming on whatsoever no matter what you say
