  1. 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?
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. @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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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..
  9. After playing about 35 matches, I’m definitely a +1 for tweaks with shots into the side netting, low 1:1 conversion, not enough central play in general and low scoring strikers. Loving the game except for the above which is not quite game breaking for me but I also think that’s because I’m assuming it gets fixed next patch
  10. I’m really enjoying the game but I am definitely seeing too low an amount of through ball ATTEMPTS. I don’t care if they don’t work often, they shouldn’t, but very few attempts. Maybe it’s a way to keep the goals per game done for the ME. I am also seeing a few too many long shot goals too. My wingers tend to not want to stay out wide whatever I tell them. They cut in so that wingbacks can fly but I’ve not played with tactics enough - could be things like overlapping instructions causing it. Most importantly maybe, the number of shots per game is too high. Yes I’m United but that doesn’t mean I should hit 40-50 shots at goal against every poorer side I play. Seems totally fine against evenly matched teams. Possession in these games also at 70%+ levels.
  11. The average rating system is not very useful in this version at all. Not trying to be lazy and only rely on it either but....if a player is not involved in a goal, their average rating is usually in the 6 range unless the scoreline is really high. I just beat Chelsea away and Liverpool at home and most of my team got 6 ratings. We had more possession and quality shots than Chelsea and Liverpool we just defended well, they did not create many CCCs. Edit: Page didn't reload and someone already posted about this...ah well - I am also having this issue!
