  1. O wow. Can’t believe they allow this, makes me feel better about the game doing it
  2. Lol so say we’re league 2 sides in the final and we come up against him it’s fair? Literally no point in that match being played. Lol
  3. So Aguero played in the Checkatrade Final, luckily I wasn’t in the final with Wycombe, but this would of made me so angry, why on earth is Aguero in this team from a realism point of view.
  4. @jujigatame I’ve not played FM now in a couple months or so, I can honestly say I don’t miss the scripted momentum tosh, if I load a game up, I don’t want to examine before things, for example, examining the next opponent, it’s like playing fifa and examining the opponent rather than JUST enjoying playing it your way. On FM you have to stick to what the developers believe in, you can’t put angry without a player then missing an open goal or your defence giving the usual off form penalty away within a couple games. I love the work S.I do, I love FM, but it is milleniums behind other games in the fun department, FIFA career is miles better, even New Star Soccer on phones is more fun, right now I play FC Pro chairman game where you start a club and you’re the chairman obviously by the name.. on this I have done 7 seasons today, Rocket League blows FM out the water in terms of fun, on FIFA you change mentallity based on the flow of the game, on FM, you change mentality, it disprups the players match understanding, if I loaded FM up now and my striker was off form and missed open goals or my off form team kept giving penalties away, i’d turn it off, because it might be realistic but it over emphasises things, I mean crosses have been broke for years on FMs aswell.
  5. Late goals, enoughs enough. 1 shot on target A.I goals, enoughs enough. Predictably losing to 20 points after 32 league games bottom of the league side, enoughs enough. Off form strikers just to match the script, enough is enough. Taking late leads to concede right after, enoughs enough. This solid in game script is repetitive, ultra defensive time wasting at the end is POINTLESS. Momentum script is barmy, if i’m off form and 3rd, playing bottom of the league team on 20 points from 32 games, predictably knowing a struggle will happen, yet they score a 40 yard free kick v me. OK THEN I don’t want SI thinking i’m raging, but I honestly believe FM 18 was far superior, start of my current season, I sold my unhappy Right Back, my team cohesion went from 3 quarters in the green, to half way through the red... we all know how over efffctive cohesion is... I’m bored of wingers being told to stay out wide, YET always RUN THROUGH THE MIDDLE for a SHOT (take less shots!!!)
  6. I’ve read in a lot of forums people who either say the games hard or people say it’s easy and all of them seem to be using the gegenpress, however this threads been posted after Liverpool have just won back to back champions leagues and have literally just won the European Super Cup, Club World Cup, Carabao Cup, The FA Cup and just beat Real Madrid 4-1 in the Champions League Final lol, so 5 trophies in one season.. is tge gegenpress really this overpowered? How are Liverpool getting on in other peoples saves? they finished 4th in the league i’ll add but still, one trophy away from winning 6 in one year is nuts.
  7. Does anybody else find the realism of pallying around players very boring and also playing the ultimate underdog with team talks very boring? Why make a game where the only way to win is get the best players possible for the league your competing in? In the long run every successful real player plays the same, buy the best available for the clubs rep, successful team talks matching the ambitions and playing the happiness code. It I fine a player 2 weeks for getting a 6.1 v bottom of the league, I don’t expect him to script play bad for 9 out the next 10 games. I find playing the code for success boring and repetitive, future games, i’d like to tell my striker his useless and for him then to want to prove me wrong rather than refusing to score. Also, the coding of holding on to leads, if I set to very defensive, time wasting full, tight, slow tempo you know, as normal, how the hell do Stoke ship 6 past me, the tactical side of the game is mental. Morale coding simulator. Boring repetitive and play the develops way, their isn’t another way, just play happy familys or don’t play the game.
  8. I agree to an extent but how have Forest Green got players with 13 passing and vision lol like 2 or 3 that’s likely equal to some prem players if I wanted to compare
  9. So after leaving Walsall, struggling, I took over Forest Green who by far have a better team. Walsall have loans, hardely any money, awful players who just don’t match a flat 442 and the only creative spark is the on loan player from Wolves. Forest Green, have a fantastic back 4, a variety of creativity in the centre mid. The only thing Walsall better are the 2 strikers, FG even have a fantastic right winger, is this not abit silly or would people consider this normal at the start of the game?
  10. Is this the main focus because even 5 months, my walsall team are in the negative after starting negative, and setting team to focus on cohesion. To be honest it’s a big bore, training this year is silly, nobody cares about football manager illusions this much to do this and that each week. Football Manager 2018 was far the more complete package, i’m shocked that I can’t just load the game up and do simple things now, if I was a new FM player, i’d think sod this, when your off form your team all of a sudden likes getting sent off and leaking goals even v the bottom sides regardless if morale is decent. I spend half my time trying to ensure cohesion is being worked on, also the new tactical and team layout selection is dog awful compared to last year, surely an option to keep it as it was should of been available, I really dislike this game and would comfortably say it is the worst FM ever made. Why is the users team starting off with very bad cohesion? Why are players always getting low match sharpness after 1 or 2 games and when you play them they automatically play terrible and miss sitters, since FM god knows, the 3D camera angle selections are plain simple tat. Anybody else have cohesion problems? I can’t be bothered to wrestle against it anymore.
  11. Nvidia program settings, fm 2019. Set power to max performance.
  12. Data Analyst @Johnny Ace 2D is the same as playing football manager 2008 on the xbox to me.
  13. If you’re going to play in 2d you might aswell have the phone version lol
