    Fm19 CDkeys

    I'm Australia. Was a struggle finding somewhere that sold here, and when they listed it as global I got excited, more fool me.

    Fm19 CDkeys

    I preordered with them before they changed/update the page to EU only. Obviously didn't work and they gave me a refund and communicated with me so good from that perspective. Negative was that it took just over a week and a few emails before they actually did something (instead of the 48 hours advised).
  3. Can we talk about the fact that he's only rated 2nd in your team for AM?
  4. Save and reload always worked for me on FM18
  5. Bit late to the party but I've finally resolved my purchasing problems and finally played a few games. Reading this thread I was feeling quite pessimistic and worried booting up the game, coming into FM19 with such high hopes and wondering if I needed to wait for a patch to play. It may be early days but I'm enjoying the game so far. Some of the smaller UI and match changes like the curling ball (and I'm seeing more variation in things like the ball off the inside of the post and keeper following up the 2nd ball) are fantastic and make it feel like an improvement on FM18. Not to ignore some of the valid ME criticisms but I'm still able to enjoy it at the moment and not feeling any urgent need to revert to FM18.
  6. Interested to hear people's thoughts on the new tactical styles? Seems a bit of a shift from what a lot of people had been saying in regards to tactics. Previously the common view was in favour of a minimalist approach to team instructions, only changing a couple of things here and there but keeping it standard. New tactical styles seem to apply lots of team instructions to govern each phase and impose the style. Have tried recreating some on FM18 but been a little hesitant having so many TI!
  7. I'm not 100% sure but I believe that it operates by player/league reputation so that the bigger the database size, the further it increases the threshold to include lesser known players. Here's an example (though from FMT18 so it might be slightly different) Starting a career as Liverpool with only English leagues loaded. Small - 6.15k. Medium - 8.95k. Large - 11.95k. Looking at FC Lorient in the French 2nd division... Small has an empty roster Medium we start to see some players Large they've got practically the full team
  8. I wish you could filter by squad status though. I feel like there's a lot of noise to the average values with all the backup players included (from AI teams as well). But it's my go to for working out what Pos and OTB I want on my first team by comparing them to the highest league value.
  9. Teams that are normally filled with grey players on small databases will now have real players as well.

    How to open up the MLS

    I imagine for the same reason that people want to remove Brexit and other such things. You might like a team or a place and want to play a save there but not enjoy the restrictions as much as elsewhere. Or maybe play as a club that is lower down but by giving MLS promotion/relegation then you can build your favourite teams up like other parts of the world. I mean, it's not just a game with varying numbers and rules. It can be fun to immerse yourself in the world and the club, and different people have different preferences.
  11. Ok. I might wait a bit longer for a response from CDKeys and mope around on FM18/wait for the demo. Glad yours is sorted.
  12. I am having the identical problem. When I ordered the game it was listed as Worldwide but I notice their store now specifies EU. How did you sort out the problem?
  13. Was about to ask the same. I can see it on the search list but clicking takes me to the game page where there is no demo button?
  14. Not a major feature, no. But adding a league and national team counts as a minor feature or improvement. It sounds like you are just caught up with what the word feature entails.
  15. In combination with 3 liga. They phrased it as a multiple thing. Haven't played the game yet, this is just based off what others are saying. Not sure why people are so disappointed? Managing to put the league back in and fix the national team are massive things to do just before release. It was never going to be a game changing feature at this stage and a stadium editor would be a headline feature. Sure you could already fix it yourself but that doesn't mean they shouldn't improve the base game. And for those of us who can't use an editor (FMT) it's brilliant. For something added just prior to release and without fanfare this is more than I had hoped for.
