  1. Well, it was in pre-alpha 4 days ago... 'I'd imagine' it is not moved 'far beyond' that stage in 4 days. The question was aimed at SI staff and moderators the people who know.
  2. Is the game still in pre-alpha, or has it entered the alpha stage? keen
  3. I understand what you're saying. But I think the realism that is advertised and that I am looking for is realism of the managing aspect of the game, accuracy of data etc...
  4. Love FM. Been playing since it first came out at Championship Manager when I was still a primary school kid, and I feel the game has always delivered what it has set out to do. Happy with the progress every year. I am sorry that so many people are complaining about the 3D engine. I personally wouldn't mind going back to 2D dots and having all the investment being put on the management aspect of the game. We have a 3D engine, its icing on the cake, it is being continually improved which is great, but we're not trying FIFA, we're Football Manager
  5. Just purchased the Arsenal Edition !! Same price as the standard game and same access to beta. Not that I am a supporter of Arsenal myself. Just excited about the game.
  6. Great ideas. I'd be tempter to try Union Berlin. A Leicester save would be pretty cool if you tried using young players + a handful of big names.
  7. Hey all! I bet you are ALL planning your saves for the next year. This year I am going to try doing a two-manager save. I want to manage 2 bottom league clubs from different countries, grow them to Champions League top dogs, and have the two clubs to interact. The two teams will hopefully be Bragança from Portugal, and Hereford from England. In FM 2017 and FM 2018 I won the Champions League and World Club Championship several times with Bragança. in FM 2019 I did the same with Hereford. Can I do it with both in the same save? And what about when they are both competing in the same final? Either way, I win! If you are interested to know, I never used the Editor or Mods of any sort. Just plain vanilla and following the game as it is. If you want to have a look at the saves I still have them and would be happy to upload them for any FM17 / 18 / 19 players out there to enjoy. Let me know if you'd like to hear about how the two-manager goes, and I'll make a thread for it What are your save ideas?
  8. Also, if anyone from the SI team is reading this, would love to be in on the closed Beta.
  9. So here's my prediction ahead of the unveiling in September / October: - Complete overhaul of youth development. - Scouting and rating major tweaks. - Completely new system of interactions, mainly board interactions, interactions with other clubs, and league politics! If this is true, it would work out wonders for me, as my planned save for FM2020 is to take two bottom league clubs from 2 different nations and manage them in the same save, collaborating with each other in some way. Prediction might be all wrong, but let's see if I get my genie wish ME will probably be better. I would just love it if it ran well without driving my MacBook to hyper-ventilation
  10. I have managed to get Hereford to the Premier league now. The issue has been fixed as I now have a U23s team, and everything works as it should. It might just be the game doing something weird as it prepares the U23 launch in the background.
  11. I've recently noticed that U18 staff is no longer showing in the Boardroom list. And that when proposing a contract for a U18 position, the vacancy count (e.g. 11/11) shows the number of vacancies for Senior staff instead.

    Yes, I see it about 40% of the time.
  13. Spotted Incorrect offsides. In this game, Kirby scored a goal that was disallowed for offside. He was at the entrance of the area behind everyone, so he could not possibly be offside. Yes, there were two players offside near the goalkeeper, but they did not touch the ball. There is some other dubious offside displays later on in the game (correctly spotted, but the lines are not well displayed) Crewe v Hereford.pkm

    Anyone else noticed how the inside floor bars (not sure what the correct terminology is) seem to have exaggerate reactions to being hit by the ball. Also, the animation is aways different every time you reply it. I've attached 2 screenshots, in one the bar does an upside down V, on the other this time the replay did not show any reaction from the bar, but when it was playing live, the V was so big that it was higher than the goal itself haha I dare say in real life there would be no V at all, and if the ball hit that bar with that much strength, then it would be the ball to react by bouncing fast, rather than the bar. Just a minor thing though, doesn't take anything away from enjoying the game
  15. Just randomly I have discovered that when you are seeing the tactics screen, if you click the tactics sidebar button again the majority of coverage squares change colour to green. Pretty strange bug. I'll upload the save to the cloud 'Hereford'
  16. As anyone else noticed that if you select to include own club staff in the search it actually excludes them, and vice-versa. This was a bug in FM18 already, thought someone would have picked it up by now...
  17. No because there were no training sessions in between. This club plays semi-professional part-time, so there are usually at most 3 training days a week, provided there are no matches. Here's one that happened just now, and as you can see, the same happened. There was no training between Friday 9pm and Saturday 8am. Also, if the news story does not store static information then what is the good of it? The usefulness of having an inbox is to be able to track events that happened until a little while back.
  18. With the 19.1 update, not the least performing players shows with the best of the 3 in the red box, rather than the worst player in the red box.
  19. Unfortunately I just carried on with the save... and it has since been overwritten. But if it happens again I will upload it
  20. I have just been granted an upgrade of the data analysis facilities, and I am still able to ask for an upgrade, in the same day, same sitting. I think this is a bug, I should not be able to ask for an upgrade while there is one under progress... To test this, I also asked for a Professional Status upgrade, which was refused, but yet I am able to ask again. Surely if it has been rejected I should not be able to ask again for a little while.
  21. I noticed that the when I ask the assistant to give the substitution talk, he either says there is nothing to say, or nothing happens at all.... is this a bug?
