  1. OK, I have so far seen 6 missed pens in Northern Ireland on my save. 1 missed in a league game, the other 5 have been missed in PSO's in various cup comps. However the same is happening: The missed penalties are being blasted down the middle and the keeper palms it away. I have not seen any pens shot wide, over, against the wood(dont get me started there ) or placed in the corner and the keeper diving to save it. Id be interested to hear if anyone has seen realistic pen misses and if so: what league/competition?
  2. Im aware of the Liverpool situation last year. Apparently they have hit the wood 19 times this season too? A bit freakish though. It all still just grates on me and doesnt seem right. Every game to have a shot clunking off the wood. I always said that 0.1 per game was right from my experience but obviously the stats prove otherwise and maybe need to re-think my opinion on it. I mention the league specific because a lot of obscure leagues have not been updated in depth for a number of years in terms of players. Apparently there was a guy from Sweden saying that the Swedish leagues had be
  3. i looked at all my league games. Match 1: Us: x times - AI x times - Overall x times Match 2 etc....
  4. OK, Im not back to argue! Ive been looking more at this. On OptaJoes Facebook page he mentioned that last season in the PL there were 265 woods in the 380 games = 0.69/0.7 per game. OK the stat is correct. I looked at a full round of prem games on my save and there were 7 woods in the 10 games, one game had 4. 0.7 per game Looked at 20 recent games from the Skrill South and it was 0.75 per game, NI Championship 2 it was 0.8 per game. The league wood stats from my league games is overall 1.00 per game(across 18). 0.611 per game from my team and 0.389 per game from the AI. 1 per game is
  5. What like too many woods per game that loads of people are complaining about, and that ruins the realism of the ME?
  6. So why are they saying that no more patches/fixes will be released then?
  7. EXACTLY!! Well put I bet these soak tests basically involve holidaying through 30-odd seasons > comparing the FM stats to real life > "....... errrrr thats about right...release it". What CityAndColour is saying is spot on. I wonder how much testing involves looking at the effect of these stats in the ME itself and whether it looks realistic. Im not going to have it from any Mod or member of the testing team! I have been watching football for 25yrs and what Im seeing in regards to the amount of woods per game is not right! However I do need to backup on the long shots thing. Again
  8. I say this because I felt that woods in Fm12 were as close to spot-on as possible in my experience. I dont feel that here, it feels way too high. Can you tell me where I can find these stats that this is all being programmed from?
  9. I thought I would make a point of this, cos woodwork incidents are beyond boring now. I decided to gather some data from 25 competitive matches in the Northern Irish 3rd tier and various cups against all kinds of teams in that country. My findings: - Human team: 18 woods in 25 = 0.72 per match - AI teams: 10 woods in 25 = 0.4 per match - Overall: 28 woods in 25 matches = 1.12 per match!!! Incredible! - 2 matches with 4 woods - 1 match with 3 woods - 3 matches with 2 woods - 8 matches with 1 wood - 9 matches with 0 woods I really doubt that these stats are true to life. I'd even be
  10. I have now played into Nov 13 with Chimney Corner on my 14.3 save and must say the whole game and especially the ME are superb. Not really seen any bugs outside the ME but they could pop up as the save progresses. Just have to live with them if they do. I do however have 2 gripes: 1.) Injuries: Getting one every game pretty much. It could be because I have semi-pro/intermediate players whos conditioning wont be the same as pro players so they will be more injury prone, but its getting annoying. 2.) Major gripe is with woodworks. A stat was mentioned recently about 0.7 woods per game on
  11. A kindred spirit!! I actually need to change my tune completely. This is the best ME SI has ever made by a light year. Not seen anything wrong with it so far(on full game) but its early days. Wingers now working beautifully, sprinting down the line with the ball and crossing! DLF dropping right into the midfield to link up the MF and attack. I need to try my preferred 433 shape with 3 strikers and the 2 wide ones dropping off wide. If that works then I'm in heaven! I never played full game for about 3 months so I've been using FMC for the most part. There is something wrong with the
  12. One thing I forgot to mention yesterday was that I played on Classic mode. Today I have started another save on full game and the ME is incredible!!! What is going on here? My 442 worked a treat, wingers played like wingers and it was brilliant. That was only the first friendly. The ME on FMC was utter garbage and it looked all over the place. Looks like I'm a happy bunny after all. I had been told the full game ME was superb after the update and its true. FMC ME... well I dont know whats going on there
  13. Hi Tony, Interesting. Im going to give it all another go today, I was a bit tired during those rants last night so forgiveness is begged!!! It could very well be the level I'm playing at as well like the other comment stated. Do I start with a blank 442 and no instructions at all? or give the team and players a fair few specific ones?
