  1. I'm not cool with it at all. It seems a rather insidious practice. I won't buy until they announce the features , and in a perfect world no one else would either. The whole "lets just thank them for the discount" is also nothing to do with this thread, the 2 points are separate and dismissing people s opinions because they should just be grateful to SI is utterly bizarre.
  2. IIRC they once said most people played full fat FM anyway ,s o I'd imagine most people will buy FM17 rather than FMT17. Apparently they were a separate last year as well and FM16 was still top 3 or 4 concurrent all year. Peak concurrent players for FMT 16 was 120 yesterday compared to 59'994 for FM16 so It's not really an issue.
  3. Nice one , I missed that post on the previous page. Could have been made a little clearer with the press release wording though
  4. I mean that's fair enough , it still feels odd they decided to advertise it as a pre order bonus when it's been part of the game since whenever FMC came in (or whatever it was originally called) Edit : Didn't know it was apparently a seperate game last year as well. So will all copies of the full price FM17 get FMT no matter when it's purchased , or only at launch ?
  5. 20% discount makes the Steam version an absolute no brainer this year. Sneaky trying to make it look like the mode that's been part of the game since it's inception is now a free pre order bonus though.
  6. I'd be interested to see the tactics of those who are still seeing a lot of goals coming from crosses. This last version of the ME has seen me some of the most varied football I have ever seem my teams play and the goals are coming from everywhere. I'm not exaggerating when I say that I've seens goals scored in the last week I have never seen before in any version of the ME. *I'm not discounting the experiences of those who are seeing this before anyone gets all defensive.
  7. I'd imagine this was the discussion even before an actual bid was made.
  8. RE: The column resize thing ? cant you just right click the little cross and "autosize all columns" ? It's not perfect but it's no where near as bad as last year was.
  9. There was no data updated in this patch, there never is until the post window data update in February.
  10. I've played 7 games post patch - 20 goals vs 3 conceded. Observations : I haven't noticed a single slack back pass. Defender positioning is much better. Pre patch I was constantly being caught out with simple lobs over the top due to my CB's constantly being dragged out of position , this no longer happens , full back positioning is also much better. Players in the midfield seem to be playing much better, especially roles like B2B (who now actually gets into the opponents box) , overall play is better to watch now it's not all fullbacks bombing forward into the massive space left pre patch. Top work.
  11. I'm using FLUT , anyone having issues with that ?
  12. Has this as well. Most recent example is with Rulli the GK. Coming to the end of his contact he wanted 140k/9.5million and would only be a key player. I didn't sign him, he left his club and 6 months later is solo a free agent. Offered him a deal 100k and 6 million to sign. Would only accept a key player squad status. Had a young Brazilian LB who wanted 10m signing free as well. This was pure 16.2 though so it could be improved.
  13. Going to be all sorts of anger tonight when all those tactics exploiting the wonky fullbacks stop being nearly as effective
  14. Your F9 drops deep to get the ball but you have no midfield runners moving into the space he is leaving. I found the DF/s to work really well when I tried a tactic around Cleons counter thread.
