  1. IMO there should be more leeway in general for youngsters than signed players since everyone always wants youth academy players to play.
  2. He's out on loan. So far 6.4 rating in 10 games so yeah, I guess he's not lighting the world on fire. But uh, he's a youngster, on loan, at $100/week - the lowest salary possible. Surely fans could pick someone else to complain about?...
  3. Fans probably shouldn't ever complain at me for promoting a kid from the youth team and giving him a chance.
  4. I have one from about a month prior. I tried to fast forward thru screens just now and did not get that message again.
  5. Just got a message about a board warning for the last place team a month after the season ended. A bit late to the party there...
  6. There are three major areas contributing to this: the AI is terrible at evaluating players - this applies to squad building and in general (too many good players available on free contracts, etc) Tactics engine is destroyed by the 442 bug Training turns players into superheros compared to the AI Hoping to see improvements to all three in FMM18.
  7. There needs to be a message when a player in the reserve/B team gets injured.
  8. I think it's edited. The game is confused about his position as a left-back or midfielder. Don't think I've ever seen that before.
  9. FMM 2016 - updates?

    All annual sport games end their update cycle when the new game comes out. FM, NFL Madden, FIFA, etc.... it's the nature of the beast.
  10. The reason the game feels easy is because training is too effective on the human's players as compared to the AI's players. In a game ultimately driven by numbers, that has a big effect on the outcome. I'm really hoping they revamp (or at least tone down) the effects of training in FMM18. Alternatively, and I haven't tried this yet myself, you could try to self-impose a training limit of no higher than 1-2 medium regime and 0 intensives. That may level the playing field somewhat. So can Real Madrid so I'm not sure I agree with this statement...
  11. FMM is designed to be a bit more simpler and watered down / streamlined from the full blown PC version. So while tactical options could certainly be improved in FMM, you have to keep in mind that SI's primary goal is to keep things relatively simple.
  12. Guys, Let's talk AI's tactics adjustments. I assume (hope) you know that the tiniest change in tactics triggers the AI to change its entire formation. They may have the most elaborate and creative formations to start but... you could change something small like your passing from direct to short and the AI will often change its tactical setup (often to a basis 442) even if this happens 30 seconds into a match. A goal allowed almost always also triggers a formation change even if the AI's team is dominating. Match-day and tactics are the meat of this game and it's irritating that the AI doesn't have an ounce of common sense to properly evaluate the smallest changes made by the human manager or to consider game states. Would be very disheartening to see these things continue to happen in the new version. Thanks.
  13. Player Value

    His stats probably dropped? Maybe due to a poor training regime? Or maybe he stopped scoring for you so the hype about him died down? To be honest, I've never been concerned with player value, especially when the AI will fleece you for its stars. It's all about performances on the pitch.
  14. Assistant manager bad advice

    I would not disagree with that assessment of my backup options. Then perhaps a clearer message of why the players are being suggested would help. As it is, this screen is one of the least used in the game (by me at least) because the advice here almost never makes sense, and when it does, as in this case, it's still very misleading which doesn't make it feel very credible.
  15. Assistant manager bad advice

    Then shouldn't it say that I need wingers if he's going to suggest wingers? The fact that RM/LM are still midfield positions may be technically correct but in reality it's incredibly misleading and not at all useful. Even more so in case of my team where my wingers are some of the best players on the team.
