  1. i'm often finding players with high determination (17+) attribute are constantly dropping to around 13/14. Is there a trick i'm missing here that's causing this or is it possibly a bug?
  2. In terms of questions and answers in the press conference, this one is probably the worst.
  3. its laughable that we're still stuck with this version of the match engine. Not long ago we was informed there was often upto 10 builds of the match engine internally and yet we don't even get something on the public beta to test out. This Match Engine isn't acceptable for a £40 game and players are practically testers. Stop messing about, add something new to the public beta and lets work on the game as a community because that's what we've been expected to do with this horrific release. Seen better defending on foosbal table than this release. Seen better finishing as well tbh
  4. Its time for FM to open up to modding. Let players use old match engines. Let the modding community create their own. For me personally there have been 2 match engines in this decade where i've felt like i can enjoy the game whilst setting up the teams to play however i want them to play. I said it last year and i feel the same way again this year. Excluding the match engine, the game is fantastic, but everything you do comes down to those few minutes where the match engine is left to do its job. Its failing horribly again. Give me Fm12 Match Engine. I'll take the inbalances back then for the general quality anyday
  5. players in my team have not been given any holiday time after the Euros. England lost the Semi final on the 7th and Chillwell is available for selection in my next game on the 12th
  6. This picture shows what it should look like when players shoot from this angle. From the angle of the camera, sure it looks like a simple pass. Though put yourself in the players boots. He had so little time between receiving the ball and having to make a decision (in FM players are taking multiple touches with loads of time). If he takes another touch here, a recovering tackle could be made by No 8. Also the defenders positioning is decent. From our angle we can see the ball across is still on, but again in the players boots he has so little time and its difficult to spot the attacker (In FM defenders would be about 5 yards behind the attackers here). I said it on another post yesterday, the big problem in fm isn't the players shooting from these angles, the problem is that the defenders are terrible and are often so out of position that there's no excuse for the pass not being made. Imo the work has to be done on the defending for these situations, not the attacking
  7. My biggest problem with these is more how often we see this situation. For me, as a striker i'd always be shooting there but how often IRL do we see a striker through on goal with so much time. It happens multiple times a game on FM. When the player has a tighter angle though i'm totally with you. In this picture a player with low composure and vision is less likely to be aware of the teammates position. When they're coming it from a tighter angle though the pass is right there for them to see but they still shoot. For me though, the biggest problem is probably the defending. These situations happen way too often.
  8. Exactly. The statement is baffling. Updates for the match engine stop after the march update every year. We're told this has to happen so that the next release can be "the best FM ever" and now they're saying there's been 10 internal updates within weeks.
  9. Over 10 internal Match Engines.. Its actually worrying to hear that. Last year the Beta ME was close to being the best ever, come release it was dreadful. If they're making so many changes without proper testing then its no wonder the match engines have been holding this game back for so many releases
  10. Pereira has a tight hamstring. Darn Brendan Rodgers making my players have muscle injuries....
  11. Sack Race predictions need work. Klopp 3rd fav to be sacked next. Liverpool top of the league, still in EFL Cup and through to CL knock out stages. Even Hodgson being there is harsh with Palace being 13th in PL and 7 points above the drop
