  1. It's not the worst ever when you consider the early FM MEs, but in terms of marrying expectations, FM20 has been the worst in my view. Which is a shame, as the rest of the game I cannot find fault with.
  2. I can see an improvement to the match engine, but I am still seeing so many goals from shocking initial clearances. Soft, aimless headers and kicks away straight back to the attacker. I've scored and conceded a lot of goals like this.
  3. Is anyone else seeing a high level of goals from the edge of box following half-cleared corners? Doesn't seem to matter how I set up defensive corners, every other game one gets spanked into the top corner by any of their players (good shooting stats or not)
  4. Real shame to see you go but appreciate all the hard work you have put in - your guides have been crucial in helping many understand how their decisions make an impact.
  5. Yes this is very common in my experience. Also in two-striker formations - if one striker moves down the channel with the ball his strike partner will not attempt to get into the box/into a good position to get on the end of a cross, resulting in a poor shot from an angle
  6. Don't agree it's been in multiple issues; this one certainly - generating 1 on 1 situations I found quite difficult in previous editions. It's overpowered in 2020.
  7. They may as well close this thread, then. They created a feedback thread and they're getting it. The more people flag similar issues the more likely it is to be looked at, I'd imagine.
  8. I think this may be the most disappointing FM I can remember - it's a shame, because while there are so many good things about it, the ME has spoiled this for me. I keep coming back to the game and play two matches, then disappear again. It is the heart of everything you work for in the game, to see tactics play out and certain kinds of football being differentiated. But it is monotonous and error-strewn. - Behaviour of players at throw ins, human and AI, are just mad - very little marking or positional sense - Any winger who picks the ball up from half way line or thereabouts will surge forward, space permitting, unchallenged by the brainless defence who back off, and drive the ball in to the side netting/across goal to the point of insanity (well documented). Decision making is woeful - I should not have to check 'shoot less often' to prevent this (not that that even works) - this has not been an issue in any recent versions so far as I can remember - Crosses seem to be heavily restricted and teams are able to cut the ball back and play like Barce in and around the box. Very repetitive - at least in all games I watch? - 1v1s, I mean - another well documented event, I know - but I would probably fair so much better playing a high line and letting the oppo play the ball in behind full well knowing 9/10 the striker will not score - they will either not get the shot away, will scuff well wide, or hit it straight against the keeper. From what I'm seeing, forward goalscoring records are poor; wingers are king. - and that's it - I can't fault the rest. Dev centre, training, club vision - all big ticks - and I enjoy the usual aspects and additional little nuggets to be found. I may have missed a few things on the ME, but it is immersion breaking for me at the moment. There is so little variety and yet so many goals, even in matches outside of my control. Can only hope the next patch produces something more polished.
  9. The ME is so disappointing for me - shooting from angles (raised by so many) is painfully repetitive. The behaviour of defenders is shocking at times (defending and attacking); especially if there is space for attacking players to run in to - the defenders do not track across and fill the space allowing a free run for 40 yards and shot. Goals seem to be extremely high across AI games as well as my own. The rest of the game I really like, but ME is ruining the immersion for me and I've taken a step away to see if it pulls me in again.
  10. While shooting from ridiculous angles seems commonplace in this edition, I've managed to halt the fullbacks/wing backs from doing so by telling them to shoot less often. Had some nice moves with cutbacks to the forward who is now scoring (woohoo) - even scored one from a centrally played through ball in a tight space, which is rare in my experience.
  11. Concur with this. I'll give the ME some more time but there are some glaring problems in place at the moment - the shots being way off target are back again; this was present in either 17/18 can't recall, where shots would end up near the corner flag. Such as a shame as I love the rest of the game but some of the antics in the ME are making it tough for me to go back in after a session.
