  1. There are just some small bugs that suck the joy out of this game. Playing with Liverpool, won the CL and first in the PL and Spurs (6th in PL) are interested in signing Van Dijk. They offer something like 50 million while he is worth 70. I obviously refuse and the player and rest of the squad is angry. Why?? So not realistic. Mentality drops. Also the number of unrealistic transfers in the Dutch league is way too high (Ajax buying back up players from PSV and Feyenoord for their starting team). Or I sell two players, squad raises concern that the squad lacks depth (which I can imagine). I promise to buy new players, buy two even better players back and they are angry I didn't improve the squad. Mentality drops. Besides that it's the best version I played, and I think it's my 10th year. But things like things shouldn't be hard to catch during the testing.
  2. Can someone post Bruun Larsen from Dortmund please?
  3. I really like the preset tactical styles and they give me a better indication of what every style has to offer and how it looks like. However, I'm struggling to determine which style suits my team. For example, I am playing with Liverpool and if I go to the team report page I can see that my team has good dribbling, balance, first touch and off the ball as good strength. My midfield is very good at vision, passing, decisions and technique and my attackers are good in aticipation and off the ball. But how does this relate to the tactical styles? Obviously with a target man it's better to play counter attach, but with the type of players above I find it hard to make a difference between gegenpressing, tiki taka, posession or something else. I hope someone here can give me some guidance on how to make these decisions, not only for my team now but also future teams.
  4. I'm doing a game in Spain, and my biggest annoyance: There are four games on a Sunday: - 12.30 - 18.00 - 18.15 - 20.00 I don't play in any of them, and yet the game requires me to continue four times. Why just not once and show me the results at the end?
  5. How do I change team fluidity of a tactic with the new tactic tool? I want to play fluid but in my preset tactic it is set as structured. I don't see an option to change it.
  6. Kik Pirie his second nationality is American: https://www.voetbalzone.nl/doc.asp?uid=340079
  7. I've now already had PSV showing interest in De Ligt, Vd Beek and Neres, all leading to media speculation or agents coming up with demands. It might not be a research error but it is almost certain it never will happen in real life and takes some of the realism away. Unless Viergever is really that persuasive Also at the other hand in the scouting tab it shows players like Pereiro, Lozano and some others would be interested in a move to Ajax as well.
  8. I just finished my first season with Ajax. Won the championship, with Donny a key player and playing every match. And now I get this: Really?
  9. I remember us having the same discussion about FM17 about Ziyech. Ziyech was according to the AI an inside forward, and not fully green in the AMC spot. While according to you he had 20 in the AMC spot and 17/18 in AMR. So it seems that the AI has their own opinion based on the attributes. Because looking at attributes it might make more sense to play them in that role (the same as why Frenkie is advanced playmaker and not deep lying playmaker according to the AI). Edit: In my game the AI also prefered Viergever over Angelino at LB.
  10. Yeah I had two offers for key players in January which I rejected. Both were angy I didn't let them go. I also already had four goals where my or an opponents right back gave a pass from deep in my own defence, over the other 16 players towards the striker who could score. Beautiful goals, but would never happen (at least that often) in real life.
  11. Maximiliano Romero from PSV is still injured IRL, in-game he played almost every match so I assume he wasn't injured that long (or at all) when I started the game. I also feel he is a bit too good, he has a 1-1 match/goal ratio in my game (March 2019) and plays every match, while someone like Malen looks worse in attributes and is even being loaned out. I doubt Romero would be a starter for PSV in their current team. Regarding Frenkie, AP in the central midfield spot is the only position where the key attributes are fully green: That's probably because of his overall attributes, but I clearly feel he is more a DLP (maybe even in the DMC spot). Also, Daley blind is a DLP at DMC in-game which I get with his experience, but I still feel the BPD role should be higher, he also played in this role at Manchester (even more than as left back). He is used as BPD by Ajax most of the time.
  12. Is there a change in tutoring and how to get youth players tutored? I don't see that option anymore when I click on any of my players (in the same squad).
  13. I really like it so far. Didn't play FM18 but this is a big big big improvement. A lot of new things and still a lot I probably haven't discovered yet (I'm in December 2018). Some minor comments on my Ajax game: - De Ligt and De Jong but also some other players are wanted by big clubs in real life. I didn't have a single offer in my game in the first season so far, they even extended their contract with 5 years. - Ajax is one of the healthiest clubs in the world. TD Overmars made it very clear in the media a couple of times they don't want to be taken over by some rich guy. And yet I already had two transfer embargos by the board because of possible takeovers. - I was hoping this FM would have some more realism in terms of league standings. I'm almost halfway and Utrecht is 1st, PEC Zwolle is at 2nd and Vitesse was18th (yeah I suck with being 3rd, I know).
  14. Maybe a stupid question; but if you buy FMT on Steam, do you also have to buy it again in the app store on the 24th? Or can you start your game and continue?
