  1. Yes fair enough. Yeah I guess the effort against reward gets a bit reinterpreted if you are EA these days. Talking of women, got to convince mine yet that the World Cup is a must see.
  2. I am not basing it on anything. With the right plug, any game can sell. I would say that there are just as many female gamers out there who haven’t bought the game, and yes in my own personal opinion, I do think that a lot of female gamers out there would buy the game with a female emphasis, rather than just a males type game. Which frankly it could be seen as. But yes, economically I don’t know if SI would recoup valuable sales from it. Perhaps it would be sheer folly for them to institute on the grounds you have rightly pointed out. Anyway, nice reply from you 👍
  3. Mmm, and you are suggesting I am a marketing genius. Genius troll there 🙄
  4. Because many fans don't like going to football games for many reasons. There is still a disproportionate amount of women attending, versus those that just watch on the telly. Personally I believe a women's league on FM, or even a separate version would do really well. If not just for the fact there isn't one. Marketing alone could generate loads of sales.

    Purely down to marketing for me these days. Perhaps before the decent on board graphics of the modern Intels, manufactures could probably get away telling customers they need a big dedicated card. Back when I had my Rock gaming lappy, every option available came with a higher end card that there were no options to change. As I said, looking at it a technical level back then, it was just marketing. My take on it anyway.
  6. Actually a using a bit of quick Google Fu reveals that there is huge increase in women playing video games, albeit like a lot of men, probably on the smart phone platform. However, likening this to the average attendances in the women's Super League for example, or others, won't have any direct correlation with those playing FM. You are right on one level with this post, but way off generally. The broader appeal of women's football has nothing to do with women, or anybody playing any version of FM IMHO.
  7. It is actually quite easy to mod the agreement within the pre-game editor. Defaults can be restored if something goes wrong. It is really easy though to add a second nation that mitigates the need for applying for work permits and such.

    Yes good advice above. Better to save for a decent card than maybe forcing yourself to buy a lower end one just because you feel, or get told you need it.

    Totally agree on that. I was seriously considering an All In One based on the i5. Would have been the middle priced one at about 1750 pounds or so from PC World. The highest model came in 2200 I believe for nothing more than a few increments in processor speed. Admittedly the Retina screens are very good, have one on my iPad Air 2 (only got it on mobile contract for work stuff as well) but that’s about all they have going for them IMHO.
  10. Exactly the same for me but with coffee and then camomile tea. Tried it once but was laggy as hell. Down to a few things of course, but I don’t think it works other than a single player game. Agree with you’re assessment of the game.

    May help for the OP to also list if a Mac is strictly necessary as well.

    How To "Unsettle" A Player?

    Thanks for providing that tip. Haven’t done that myself.

    @Smurf On a thong type budget the Piledriver FX’s maybe worth a look. Can get them under a hundred, and a four core for like 50 quid on EBay. Maybe just as good for FM than a Ryzen. I would probably look at some value DRAM as well, won’t be as efficient as higer graded stuff, but may save a good 30 to 40 quid shopping around. Just a thought .
