  1. Possible. My Brentford save was much more enjoyable than this Man Utd one.
  2. I'm really trying hard with this game but the amount of goals from set pieces and crosses. It's just not that fun to watch. Really hope FM21 sorts this out. I'm going to be harsh below maybe but overall I'm an FM player since the first iteration and I love it overall so will be buying the next one: Press conferences are terrible - either add about 100,000 questions or don't bother with them - same **** every time. Player interactions - same as above, needs a ton more options and make the personalities to the players mean something - they're almost all kid-like in their reactions or just stone faced robots. News items - as above Make things relative and dynamic - match day roundups all sound the same even with promotion and relegation battles happening - make it interesting and analytical or these screens just get clicked by and waste time "in another game 35,327 watched villa beat Everton" - and? What else do I need to know about this? I can see the score right next to it Player x vows to end goal drought - I've seen this 50 million times, another example of many, many more news items that need to be added to create a real world in there....also, again, add more info to this than this one-liner Pre-match analysis - terrible Post-match analysis - as above UX - make use of the screen space - so many screens such as international roundup screens have one line and then you need to click - put an exec summary in there and if I want more details I will click through Match-engine - like I said, it's pretty ****. No one here needs me to explain what - I said it above and it's the feedback from most people on here There are a ton of things but you could make this game phenomenal overall- make a ****-ton of changes to the match-engine and make the game massively immersive (examples of blank screens being ore informative, players and other managers having more character (<> not all with massively annoying characters by any means) . I would do almost nothing else for FM21 - some other new empty feature is useless. See you in October/November FM21. (I'm still playing FM20 but TBD as to how long it goes for although I am enjoying this current game outside of the. match engine).
  3. was this ever fixed (or a workaround aside from the one above)? I have this issue....I know I am replying 4 months later but just bought the game!
  4. Anyone having issues with the arrow keys no longer working? Can't seem to find it in the options either...
  5. I am currently playing as Man Utd (have about 8 leagues running and medium database size) and my Under 18 team is tiny - I have about 4 real players in there. Anyone else also have a tiny team? I don't sign all of the youth candidates that come in but maybe I should? They are just often terrible and head of youth recommends not signing them and then when I don't I have a tiny squad. AI teams have decent Under 18 squads (and with much better talent coming through than me too). Do you guys just sign everyone up or go and manually pick up talent? Or have I just had a bad 3 years of talent coming in and I should just wait?
  6. I love FM - playing since the 3.5" disk days (the first CM basically) and I am really enjoying FM2020 too. Agree with the issues people are posting on here, none are game-breaking although some do lower my enjoyment, and confident SI will mostly resolve them - won't be 100% to everyone's liking but that's not a realistic outcome anyway. My big question is why is the match engine so slow to progress. I went back and looked 5 years back at the ME and where we are today is not 5 years in the making. It's like SI takes 3 steps forwards and 2 steps back every year with it. They're not starting from scratch every year (which would make no sense) so even if everything was iterative, we should see way more progress. I understand the knock-on effects changing a piece of code can have but there are engineering methods for all of this (this is no different to those building apps). Maybe the base code is so old at this point that every iteration's knock-on effects take an age to decipher and that brings up the question of whether to start a new code base but then I can only imagine the state of the ME with a new 1.0. Graphics - they need a serious uptick. I don't play for the graphics but they add to the immersion big time for me. Not as high of a priority but would love to see better graphics here - better stadiums (the ability to have the community do them too), better player models, more and better animations, less skating, much better pitch effects etc.
  7. I've got the match-lagging (low frame rate) issue but if I watch highlights of an AI vs AI game, it is super smooth. I've tried all the tricks by using another skin, the Nvidia setup preferences etc but not luck so far.
  8. @CJ Ramson do you guys need any more PKMs? Just had my defensive unit play a blinder and the average ratings were awful until we scored. I saved the game just in case.
  9. I have seen some people notice the amount of yellow cards. I am seeing a lot of this too. I have several players at 10 yellows on the season and I play the default tackling setting.
  10. Has anyone actually seen VAR not just go with the ref's decision? Every time I see a penalty given and the ref goes to VAR, it is a penalty - not once has it not been given.
  11. FBs should see plenty of the ball but agree on they being massively over-involved for all tactical setups and getting way too many assists.
  12. SI are aware. Seems to be a bug. Some are saying that custom skins solve the issue for them (I’m going to try). See the post in the forum on it. Skim Material 2.0 is one that works apparently..
