    I've just had Brexit announced on mine with the following rules:

    Does this really mean I'll be unable to play any youth player in my first team ever unless I give them 8k p/w :rolleyes: And any youth will need to be on 3k or will be unable to play any games :applause:What does the maximum of 5 players mean exactly?


    Having to give any kind of decent youth a ridiculous wage just so you can see if they progress. Well played

    Got the exact same message a few minutes ago. Might start to look for jobs outside of the UK :P I think this is a pretty hard Brexit.

  2. First competitive game so very little to go on. But this game (screenshot) worries me a bit.

    First of all, Gunn being the worst player on the pitch after an absolute bombardment from us whilst Alisson who let almost everything in have pretty good rating. None of the CCCs where goals and the goals from Southampton were very weak shots that any goalie should easily deal with. 

    Secondly, a bit worried with the ratings in general regarding my defenders, Southampton had pretty much nothing all game and yet every time they even strolled into our half the defenders just let them pass. (I'm playing Control Possession with a few role tweaks). My defenders should have had much much lower rating because Gomez and Trent were both responsible for 2 of their goals.

    Third, not related to the screenshot below, but during pre-season we got 6 penalties in 7 games and missed 4 of them. Both stats a bit worrying. 

    I love the new interface. Love tactics and training so far. All in all it's a very good feeling.

    Anyway, first competitive game, so might get better but these are just my first impressions.

    I think it'll be tomorrow, but slight chance of today. Question- do you have to click a button to download it or does it download automatically once available? I get the beta every year but can't remember. The reason i ask is I'm at work till 10pm but left my laptop on with steam open at home, just in case its out today. That way I can jump straight on it when I get home!

    Nothing installs automatically on Steam as far as I know.

    That doesn't sound right try benchmarking here and compare with others https://community.sigames.com/topic/421162-fm18-performance-benchmarking-thread/

    Although it could be that your definition of struggle might mean "not as fast as lightning" because your processor is the top consumer processor available at the moment 

    Will try that when I get home!

    I've felt, in general, slightly disappointed after the upgrade from an i5-6700K to this processor as I've noticed zero difference in anything.

    Put it this way, I have an i7 3770k 3.5ghz  and about 86 leagues loaded, it flies through processing and im about 6 yrs in.     So i highly recommend that CPU depending on budget etc.   But then you may need new motherboard etc so again, like FrazT said, compare to a completely new machine price wise

    Seriously? I got an i7-8700K 3.60GHz and I struggle above 20 leagues. How much RAM do you have?

    Yea I've just completed my 9th season in my current save, and just managed to knock Fergie off his perch at the top of the hall of fame, so now I really can't be bothered to carry on with the next season because I won't complete it by the time 19 beta is out. I dunno what to do with myself. Though it has given me a bit of time to catch up on my Robin Hobb books which had been sitting on the shelf for months.

    Oh thats desperate, Robin Hobb is my least favorite fantasy writer ever! :P

    But I'm in a similar problem, not sure what to do with myself until the beta.

    If you want to check it, it's not rocket science. The game collects htem themselves, but it's a bit "hidden". You can manually insert columns into each squad screen (including all AI teams) for penalties / converted. :)

    Yeah, I've actually done that once! My problem is that I play 100+ during the course of a FM-release, so keeping stats between saves is my big issue

  8. Penalties have been one of the biggest issues for me in FM18, too bad I'm awful at collecting the stats but based on 1300 hours played I am convinced that for me and the teams I meet the conversion rate has been far below 50%. Current season I'm playing and we have had 5 penalties against us, 1 has been a goal. We have had 4 penalties for us, 0 goals.

    But most seem to have no issues with penalties so me and OP have to accept we just got bad luck! :)

    Anyway, my points is, that despite this extreme annoyance (I hate getting penalties now as it's rarely a goal and a miss take a striker down from 6,7 to 6,2 in a heartbeat) I don't think the ME is broken because of it. 

  9. Hello!

    I just had a strange goal against me. Christensen "scores" from a corner but I don't think he should have had that goal since it quite pinball-esque bounced on 2 of my players before going in.

    Surely this should be an own goal? I have seen several other goals scored where the wrong goalscorer is displayed and will upload examples if I can find them.

    Youtube and PKM attached.

    You running any kind of anti-virus on these systems? Perhaps they could be interfering with the upload/download process so worth reading and following the instructions as shown via our FAQ below:

    Let us know how you get on. Thanks. 

    Thanks for the response.

    I tried it, it helped once on one of the computers. But only on one sync, then it went back to the normal slowness. It didn't help at all on the laptop.

    I should also add that FM is the only game that I have this issue with in Steam.

  11. Howdy,

    Not sure yet if this is a potential bug or working as well as it could. I usually play with a cloud save since I have a work laptop I use when I travel (every week) and thus I've started to get slightly frustrated with the Steam syncing process.

    It takes at least 10 minutes for the save to sync once I've turned the game of and it takes at least another 10 minutes to sync it on the other computer.

    Is this something everyone experience? First the sync is 0% 0 bytes/s for about 5-6 minutes. Then it starts to actually sync, usually around 3-5mb/sec. Despite that speed it stays on 65% for another 5-6 minutes. And then it's suddenly done. 0 to 65 to complete in about 10-15min.

    Normal or bug? Steam issue or FM issue?

    This has been an issue since FM17 but I haven't used syncing as much as I do now.

    I sync on 3 different computers and several different connections and it's always over 10 minutes for sync.
