  1. Started playing as Perugia. Don't have any real reason apart from liking the start in Serie B, and because they used to be in Serie A back in the days. 1st season - Won Serie B, 3rd qualifying round in Cup 2nd season - 5th place in Serie A, 4th qualifying in Cup 3rd season - 2nd place in Serie A, Qtr Finals in the Cup, Qtr Finals in Europa League 4th season - 1st in Serie A, Cup winner, and eliminated by Man City in first knockout round. Now I'm in my fifth season, really liking the team I built. Started really strongly after beating Roma, Juve and Inter in first three rounds. What is funny, I have exactly the same CL group as last year, with Tottenham, Schalke and RB Salzburg. Last season I was 4th seed, and now I was first, but oh well. I'm not a wheeler dealer by any means, but the squad is now worth far more then I spent on it
  2. Beta out on Thursday. Its always the same On day one they build our hopes up with a tweet or something. Tomorrow it will be the usual no beta today 100% coupled with some tweets that might be translated as a tease. Then on Thursday Miles will tweet about a meeting.
  3. I must be blind, but how do you teach a player 'Brings ball out of defence' trait? I just can't find it among the player traits.
  4. Now, these are players I signed for National League North, but they should do well in NL as well. Mamadou Kone, great pacy RB. Brad Carr, L2 potential midfielder. Axel Prohouly, great IF. As for staff, I got Simon Church for assistant manager, Victor Valdes as a coach and Danny Philpott as scout with 14/15 JPP/JPA.
  5. I really wanted Monza to be my first save on full FM, so I holidayed few seasons in Italian league. Serie B stays at 19 clubs, so I have to think of something else now. Shame.
  6. Is it intended that You can't set player to train on your desired role? I.e. I tried setting Alessio Romagnoli as ball playing defender - defend, but can only set him on stopper.
  7. So far, game runs smooth. That sudden burst of white kills my eyes on that purple skin. I was only fiddling with training and tactics so far. I don't know if thats a bug, but I cant set all my players to train in my preferred roles. ie. I can only set Alessio Romagnoli as ball playing centre back on stopper, I cant set it on defend as I would want. Also, I like the idea of mentoring groups. I added u18 keeper to training group with the senior squad, but I can't add the player into the mentoring group (unless I transfer him to senior squad). And I bid for Higuain, he doesn't want to come to Milan, and Paqueta's transfer isn't arranged as well, but that part I accepted. But Higuain should pretty much have obligation to join, as much as they've said it's optional.
  8. I'll definitely do a Monza save if they managed to include Berlusconi's takeover of the club.
  9. I for start don't really mind the state of current graphical representation of ME. Of course I would like to see some dribble moves, etc, etc., but what I'm mostly disappointed is the UI. And if SI is not developing the game as much as they can just because users have older PC's - I don't know. Sorry for wanting to make the maximum out of my specs. We had to wait '3 million years' to get 64 bit support for the game.
  10. When we are talking data etc., I would like to see how many FM2018 were sold to people that havent bought any FM before.
  11. But they could get more fans by actually producing the game that looks to date. We’ve been playing the game as we are playing for a long time now, but the game isnt really appealing to the younger generations. Being satisfied just with the current fanbase and not looking to expand is not a great strategy for a company.
  12. I expected the more ''digital'' look when the new logo came. Have to say I'm a bit disappointed as it looks like it was made in 2005. And skinners. I don't know, I haven't seen nice looking skin since the days of FM15 I'd say. Just changing panels and moving thing around.
  13. I hope that the new graphical redesign will include the interface as well, as I think it can be more up do date now, more ''sleek'' I remember before, there were a lot of skins and so on, but the skinning community is not here anymore, so we get not so good skins with just some extra panels, so basically its not skinning but paneling. (not to offend someone's hard work) And all the usual improvement of ME, training, polishing some of the addons in FM18. I will be buying the game anyways, I couldn't find myself playing FM18 when the FM19 is out, if anything just for the database. If I get even 100 hours in, it's still a worthy investment.
  14. Well most pundits had. I never paid much attention to that things, but I did watch them all before the tournament. For example big Mou had us eliminated behind Argies and Nigeria. It doesnt mean anything now, and I think it helped us a bit, being outsiders all the time. But not to have us down as a favourites againts England... I dont know, in my pink shades we are clearly better side.
  15. I dont really mind any pisstakes today. Its just I am kinda sad that better team today lost. Overall France was better and from tomorrow Ill be able to celebrate. Especially when people didnt even think we would get past the group stages.
