  1. Football Manager TV: Tactics

    Wrong, and disrespectful.
  2. Agreed. If these new things (the Medical Centre reveal is really interesting) make their way into FMT but we can just assign staff to handle them, it'll be great. Then it doesn't impact anyone who wants a super streamlined experience, but it does offer additional info for those who want it. After a year off FM, I'm pretty excited about FM18 tbh. @Lucas Weatherby do you know if / when any FMT specific info / videos will come out? Would just be nice to know which new things get into FMT.

    Looks good. Injuries are an area where we've been a little lean on input in the past, so this looks like a way of increasing awareness of when players are most at risk and gives us a better chance to manage their conditioning. Hopefully SI will also have managed to find a way to increase the overall number of injuries as I'm convinced that the overall volume of minor knock injuries in FM are noticeably lower than real life.

    It's a large part of the reason I play FMT. Can't you just delegate the responsibility for this to your assistant? I feel he stuffs up, then it's an issue but otherwise it gets you round all this stuff.
  5. I don't think we're really in a position to judge a feature that we haven't actually used. I'm anti team talk and all that bloat, but the Dynamics stuff looks more interesting, to me at least.

    "Brings ball out of defence" 😎
  7. Football Manager TV: Scouting

    Looks promising. Scouting was always just a bit of a mindless clickfest for me, these seems more meaty. I like this and the look of Dynamics, but as a FMT user I'm not sure how much of either I'll get to experience. New Roles are largely over my head in terms of their names, but will be interested to see how they play. I assume Inverted Winger just gets round the need for a modified WM to create an IF at ML/R. What I'd love to see soon are updates to training modules, injury management and details about any new PI/TI/PPMs. Even without that, these new additions are strong so far.
  8. Tighter marking kicks in when defending set pieces and general defensive situations. It has no relationship with closing down so there are no pros or cons to combining these TIs.
  9. Yep - could easily be something like an extension of Stopper / Cover Duties in defence and the equivalent in central midfield. All conjecture and would risk overriding a users intended tactical settings, but could be brilliant. I often find myself rotating my squad with no real positive / negative impact. If you're tangibly rewarded for forming partnerships on the pitch it would be awesome.
  10. The lines between players on the tactics screen has piqued my interest. I've long hoped that you get rewarded for consistency with your team selection, so perhaps the lines in @Rashidi's post show that the right back and right winger have forged a deep understanding, and this will influence their interplay? Kind of like a mutual PPM.

    Some time in the next 16 hours and 13 minutes.

    To manage expectations regarding tomorrow's video - Miles tweeted last night to make clear that it is a headline feature video that won't go into masses of detail. Seven more detailed videos will subsequently be released, but no details were shared about when they will be released. I'd assume them to trickle through periodically as in the past.

    The x is one I'm sure about, it's the rest I'm less confident about

    I could well have ****ed up the list of tweeted letters. It's at least roughly right 😂
