  1. Exactly, SI have basically said they know the ME is knackered but are going to wait until FM20 to fix them, in other words screw the FM19 players you lot carry on playing a game with a garbage ME.
  2. I'm sorry but I have tried and tried to enjoy this game but the game play and ME is absolutely horrendous, what the hell did you do to take the very decent Beta version and turn it into this abomination. We have players with high vision, passing and game intelligence all totally incapable of making a through pas on the edge of the box, instead they just kick it against the nearest defender, the same goes for wide players, all with very good CA's total inept at either running past a defender of crossing without being able to get it past the defender. Goals come from either 30 yd bullet shots, long crosses from the by line to the back post for the IF to blast in, or after multiple blocked shots within the box and after the usual game of pinball as it hits multiple players legs, the ball finally goes in. Also a blocked shot in the box will somehow gain such energy from the legs of the defenders that is goes out for a throw in near the half way line. We have the throw in and corner glitch where there is no opposition player within 20yds of the ball. Then there's the defenders heading the ball to anywhere when there's no one near them, instead of just controlling the ball. Add into the mix players just standing transfixed for 3 seconds while the opposition just takes the ball away from them. Strikers unable to score 1on1's but score a 20yd volley. No matter if you have work ball into the box players will still shoot from every angle outside the box, with every shot as per usual being blocked. Yes you can win games but my word watching the game like this is very hard indeed, it's like no real football I've ever seen, no pretty passing or cutting teams apart, just keep on battering them with shots until you get a 30yd worldy or the wingback finally gets a cross in to the far post for the IF to score. Get this game sorted or you'll find thousands of regular players will refuse to buy the next version of this franchise, I've been playing for many a year and this is the 1st time I've even considered not buying the next version.
  3. Pretty simple and straightforward request for future editions, stop hard coring a training camp into the schedule. I play as Hibernian in the SPL and at the start of every new save I have a training camp pre season all readily set into the schedule, I think this should be left open for us players to decide when and where the camp takes place. In one save I have a camp in Bonnyrigg, a small town on the outskirts of Edinburgh, really ?? that would never happen, if anything we would generally go abroad to a training camp for a week, then back for some friendlies and training at our own top of the range training facilities at East Mains.
  4. Really not enjoying this game anymore, the game play is just not realistic and watching the matches are starting to hurt my eyes they are so bad. 1. AI teams just stick 11 men behind the ball no matter who you play and it's it takes ages to break them down. 2. All players with good composure/finishing/shooting/vision/technique/balance find it impossible to either shoot without kicking it directly into the oppositions, cannot go past their man, unable to dribble and unable to see when one of their own players is standing in open space for an easy goal. What you end up with is pass, shoot and rebound, collect the ball and pass shoot, rebound, then repeat about 40 times per game so your stats will look like 44 shots with 11 on target, it just bores the life out of me. 3. players run into their man instead of trying to go round him, they then lose the ball and just stand there like a tailors dummy for a few seconds then they realise what's happened and jump into life, this will happen almost every 2nd phase of the game until you get near the box where the never ending shot blocking happens. Occasionally 1 player makes a half decent run out on the wing and gets a cross in only for your top striker to kick it directly against the keeper at every opportunity. 4. Most goals come from either direct freekicks or from balls pinging around the box like a pinball machine until someone gets lucky and kicks it in, it's not pretty just pretty boring. The Beta was not half bad but after all the updates and tweaks you've managed to turn a good simulation game into a bore fest which looks and feels nothing like football, yes you win games but there is zero enjoyment in doing so, the heart has been ripped out of this game and replaced with an over elaborate UI and fancy skins leaving the ME to suffer for the past 2-3 years.
  5. - Unable to work out how to go round opponent, so just kick ball against his legs. - defender is able to head ball anywhere when easier to just control it. - receive a pass and watch opponent simply take ball away from him.
  6. I'm finding they go from top players all around 8 and then have one game where they have a mare and half the team are lucky to scrape a 6 yet we still win 4-3, you tell them off for a poor performance even though they win and half of them go in the huff. Get real it was a naff performance that they just held on for the win, they deserved to be put down afterwards.
  7. It would be but the last one isn't positive feedback, if it was positive then frustration of game would be 2/10
  8. I just played a match where my LB smashed the ball back to my Goalie from around 15 yds above head height, the keeper is near the edge of the box, he tries to reach the overly hit pass back but only parries it onto the oncoming forward who scores, thankfully we won the game 4-1 but WTF was my LB thinking of when he passed back with a thunderbolt pass back.
  9. Enjoyment of winning games = 10/10 Enjoyment of watching games = 3/10 Frustration of seeing the same ME problems every game = 9/10
  10. Another observation, team has a throw in almost level with the 18yd box and the taker has a player 4-5 yards away totally unmarked, every single opposition player is camped in their penalty box, this just would not happen, this also occurs when you take a short corner, no one attempts to close you down, they're happy enough for you to do this freely, obviously a bug which every knows about as I use Knapp's 4-2-4 custom tactic.
  11. I think he means scoring long shots and not conceding them.
  12. After half a season this is my thoughts. No matter who you play they just stick 9 men behind the ball and block everything that comes their way. Players still unable to cross a simple ball, just kick it against the defender 2 yards away, never ever attempting to go round the defender to get a better angle, nope lets just kick against his legs and hope for the best, really spoils it for me. Strikers are totally unable to score one on ones, nope lets just run through and kick it straight at the keeper, never go round the keeper or attempt to shoot it at an angle past the keeper, just kick it right at him. The only time they score is from a cross or penalty. Midfielders score 2 thirds of all goals mostly from 25 yard screamers or from free kicks and wingers/inside forwards dominate the scoring due to most crosses being hit too long. Yes you win games and cups but jeez it's just so boring doing so, the ME is miles away from the BETA version, god knows what happened between that and now.
  13. I'm past the point and have saved after it happened. It was 2 weeks into 1st season just before our 1st Europa game and it was a recommendation from my chief scout. I have asked for a back up right winger but this is more than a back up lol.
  14. I play as Hibernian and we have a wage structure where the top wage is around £4K pw,my chief scout has just recommended Christian Bassogog, Est wage £115-160K pw and a transfer of Est £34.5-70 M, we have a transfer budget of around £2.5 M, WTF. What kind of realistic scouting is this, even Celtic the biggest club in our league couldn't afford that.
