  1. I try to recreate the existing world cup. I'm using the editor. I can select the date, host nation, all the countries, ... But I also have to select a draw date. Okay, I can do that, but I want to replicate the existing groups (England with Belgium, Morocco and Panama). Is there a way how I can influence the draw to have the exactly same result? I couldn't find that in the in game editor now.
  2. Can I start a game with the real world cup draw in football manager 2018. I tried with some random team in january 2018 (after the draw) but the draw was not like in real life (not the same countries in same groups). I own the in game editor too but it seems not to be possible with that. (The real editor seems to advanced to edit the teams / groups in the existing world cup)
  3. Hi, I try to recreate the real world cup using the editor. I select the world cup but I can not see any nation (or add a nation) to the competition. Only teams? How can I add nations and how can I edit their groups? Thanks
  4. When I concede a goal I try to stay calm and I look to my right side, to my fictional assistant and ask him with my eyes if he has any idea left.. All from my desk.
  5. Not a bug probably. But a question. I play on Macbook Pro with retina support. I have to put on 200% zoom to have a good view. The problem is my steam screen. I use it often to talk with another football manager player. But the screen is to small now. Someone else with this issue and how to fix/solve it? In the screen you see my game and the steam window is only opened in the left corner. I didn't had this issue with the beta (till there was full retina display support)
  6. Aren't you losing the real FM experience with this? Isn't it one of the charmes of FM to face everyday problems? You can go on holiday till a next game but the players won't be happy if you do this of course. I'm not sure but isn't there a 'fast / basic' option of the career mode to play with?
  7. I understand that the 'Video Referee' isn't added. It's in full exploration now and only used in some leagues and some matches. I'm talking about the Review commission which isn't making decisions during the game but after it. (Only for red cards I think?). But I have to be honnest I don't know if it's used in every country. I know it's used in England and Belgium but only in top divisons probably.
  8. A feature which improves the reality of the game but it has maybe not a real added value. Add a 'Review commission' which can suspend a player because of an arbitrary error. Nothing to improved or complex for users. Just a message that a certain player need to appear for the review commission (day after the arbitrary mistake)? A day later you get the message with the verdict and possibility to appeal. (like it's now after a red card).
  9. As described in this topic: Only data bugs will not be fixed when you start a save game in the beta. UI / UX / resolution bugs will be fixed during your saved game. https://community.sigames.com/topic/413525-do-i-have-to-start-a-new-save-game-after-the-official-release/
  10. You can add leagues by downloading the files and dropping them in the right folder (I used this for example for the thai league in fm17: But maybe this works only for the official release. Not sure
  11. Corners and free kicks were so frustrating the previous FM but I have to admit it's great in FM18. The players are really picking up the instructions.
  12. I've started one. Only the retina bug (for mac) and translation errors + some UI stuff which isn't on point. But those things can be fixed in an existing game. Only for data updates you have to start a new game but it isn't bothering me that a data analyst of Rochdale has a wrong date of birth
  13. Now seeing this post: So I suspect I can start my long save? . Or does this only mean: yes you can go further with your save game but not all bug fixes won't be included.
  14. I like to play long save games. I'm not the type of player which can start a career to explore one season and after that start with a new team. Now I'm in a difficult situation. I own the FM18 beta and I really can't wait to start my save game. (I've already started it but I'm only one official match far). I really like the match engine, it's really improved. I also like the set pieces which seem to follow the instructions more than in previous releases. The game is still in beta mode. So there are a lot of small bugs. I'm playing on Mac so I'm also facing the expected retina bug (blurry text), the regens do not have faces, a lot of language stuff is not translated (I'm playing in Dutch). Some UI things aren't on point (financial graphs, yellow cards showed twice, youth interlands showed twice, ...). I know it's a beta so I'm not here to blame the creators. I'm confident that most of it will be fixed when the official release will take place. The only questions I've left: - Can Football manager (the creators) guarantee that I don't have to start a new save game or not to have the fixes? - For the readers & creators: Are there already bugs reported which can not be fixed in an existing saved game which is started in the beta? (some wrong birthday for a player isn't an issue for me, only issues which are really game specific). Thanks
  15. It's playable but after a while it it starts to bother me. Screen is in Dutch (I think it looks a bit more blurry than it seems on the screen). You can read everything but it's just tiring. Its also macbook pro (but 2015 edition) with retina.
  16. someone else a bad resolution on mac os sierra 10.12.6
  17. Will it be possible to play further on the official fm18 when you start a game in the beta version?
  18. Has someone experience with this tactic: Can someone review it? I play on the counter a lot. And sometimes I read you have to play with a high line, sometimes I read you have to play with a deeper line. In this tactic the manager is using a slightly deeper line with 3 real center backs. How will this work out in your opinions?
  19. What are the teams with the highest debts in FM17? I'm not talking about teams like Man Utd (debt: 629M euro + Value: 1.39 billion euro), but about teams which value is lower than the value. Teams which are facing the possibility to get points reduction.
  20. In contrast with the most managers I'm a manager with a defensive attitude. Most of the time playing 4-1-2-2-1 (wide), 4-2-3-1 (wide) or 4-1-2-1-2 (narrow). I prefer to manage teams in the lower leagues of England. I'd like to play on the counter where we are closing down more and playing narrow. Sometimes with a higher tempo and direct passing. I prefer the youth and will never buy a very expensive player older than 27. I'm scouting a lot but 90% of my transfers (in engeland) will be UK/irish players.
  21. @Hootieleece Thanks for your reply. I will take your comments into account and test some things during the preperation season. Didn't knew that at all. It seems a bit strange for me because I would think a disciplined defender will mark tighter. But I'll be wrong I turned it on after a few games because we started shooting from everywhere. Maybe I have to turn this off and give some personal instructions which restrict shooting from distance.
  22. I'm playing a save with Wycombe. Against all odds we became champions in league 2. Especially between November and February we were really good. Our start and finish were pretty bad. We also had some luck. Our competitors lost a lot of points. We finished top table but with the fewest points of all my selected leagues in England (From Premier League till Vanarama Nation North/South). Now I'm in June 2017, preparing for the new season in League 1. But the lack of quality in my squad concerns me. I'm able to get some new players. I have some space in the wage budget but the transfer budget is only 100K (euro). Michael Cain (Leicester - Blackpool loan, TOTY League 2), Brad Potts (Blackpool, TOTY League 2) and Dean Henderson (Man utd - Grimbsy loan) are my first signings. I've always the attraction to buy young players on Football Manager. But I think I need some experienced players too. Especially in a relegation battle. Now I'll show you my tactic (It worked very good in away games in League 2, at home it was more difficult): Personal instructions: Watt: cross from byline Harriman: roam from position Jacobson stay wider + run wide with ball De Hallivand: close down more + mark tighter Pierre: hold position Sometimes I changed my CDM to CAM. (Mavididi, Gape were on loan) + (Rowe is actually a Central Defender, he was some 'emergency option' on RB) - What improvements could I make (Tactical + player roles + instructions). Is it suicide to play with a high line (my defenders aren't that slow). - What are importent stats for players of teams in the bottom of League 1. (Please, relate this to my tactic, so don't begin to talk about false 9 strikers etc :D). - Every remark is welcome, also info about players which are the most important in my tactic.
  23. I played every edition of Football Manager since 2009. One of the most frustrating things in this game is conceding a corner. I feel so powerless when it happens. Now I'm currently playing with Wolves in a 4-2-3-1 (fluent counter attacking) and we did well. We finished up 5th but lost in the play-offs. We scored a lot of corners (most of all teams). But we also conceded a lot. The defending at corners was pretty basic: Stay forward: AML (Ola John). Mark tall players: Danny Batth (6.3 ft) + Kortney Hause (6.2ft) (central defenders) Mark far post: Dominic Iorfa (right back) Mark near post: Borthwick Jackson (left back) Go Back: Price (5.6 ft), Cavaleiro (5.7 ft), Mason (5.8 ft) Zonally mark six yard box near post: Böðvarsson (6.2 ft) Zonally mark six yard box center: Saïss (6.2 ft) Don't look too much to the players. Because during the season I need to make changes of course + the first season is finished and some players will come and go. What I want to know: - Is the pretty basic tactic on corners sufficient or do I miss important details? - Is it useful to play with players on both posts. - Is it very important to have strong/tall player on a specific postion? (okay preferably everyone needs to be tall, but that's not possible of course). - Is there a difference between: Checked or unchecked boxes. Will they both do the same? Is it important to check/tick the boxes for every player?
  24. Found someone? Started a new game with only "fake players" and did not found anyone with facial hair. (Don't want the issue of the german guy). I'm on FM17
