  1. I used to sit it on the Tactics button, but nowadays I'm usually busy opening and closing Widgets recently.
  2. No longer being told I've done badly because I've lost to a club 2 divisions higher than mine in the Carling Cup and failed to make the 3rd round.
  3. When your boss says that he has concerns about your performance and you think, 'Yeah so does Sol Davis'.
  4. When you know the name of every ground in the Italian Serie 2/C and Romanian Premier Division.
  5. Gubbs - with all due respect, you don't know what you're talking about. Have you ever done any programming work in your life? Fixing bugs isn't as simple as you might think, because every time you fix something, you have to test all the possible impacts of that 'fix' on other game situations. On top of this, you have to playtest seasons with the fixes in order to prove that you have not caused any unwanted anomolies. FM is a very complicated game, and although it will never be perfect, it is far nearer than any of its competitors.
  6. The match engine allows you to see what the flaws in your tactic are more easily than the report. If you don't like it, no one is forcing you to use it. As for results, they are calculated after you enter the game, and then every time you make a tactical change, substitution or at half time. The game isn't 'fixed'.
  7. <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content">Originally posted by Signe: I prefer FM 07 fully patched. FM 08 is definitely not a complete product both unpatched and patched. This is the first time I've been disappointed by SI. I agree that tweaking tactics get round the match engine, but it should not have to be this way. I mean, shouldn't tactics be how you want your team to play and not simply to beat the match engine? For eg. 07 allowed moderation of tactics such that if you wanted a narrow width and play down the middle, you can and still pull off results with the right players and instructions. Not so for 08. In 08, I find that if i play through the middle and not use wingers, my strikers just cannot score off one on ones as often as say from crosses. I personally prefer to have one touch football and play my striker through but in 08 this is impossible if I want to win. There are other bugs but not so detrimental as the problems in the match engine for now. I find the match engine to be a big let down and hopefully, by the 2nd patch everything will be resolved. Also, happy new year guys! </div></BLOCKQUOTE> I've heard about the 'one on one bug' a lot, but I play this passing game and feed my strikers in, and I'm scoring a good number of goals. My problem is that I'm conceding even more.
  8. I love it. Taking a terrible Catania side from bottom of the league at Christmas to fourth bottom on the last day, in the last 20 minutes of a match. It's what FM's all about.
