  1. Great cup win 😀 This has been a highly enjoyable read, I do love Dutch football and the Netherlands in general. Had two great saves with Feyenoord (my team) and ADO in FM19.
  2. With the release of the new update, does the game feel more polished? I’ve withheld from buying due to the number of bugs and complaints about this version. I’ve gone past caring about the lack of clauses in contracts, and just want a good crack at the game if it’s in a better shape than at launch.
  3. I understand what you’re saying, and it’s impossible to please everyone. Just a couple of questions, were contract negotiations too complex for FMT? Are there any plans to review and potentially add back in some of the clauses/bonuses?
  4. I’ve not bought this years game, mainly due to limited options with contract negotiations and Club Vision being scaled back. Unfortunately these are by design, which is a shame cos it feels FMT is moving in a different direction to FM. According to this forum and reviews on the App Store, the game is riddled with bugs which is hindering the game. By all accounts this is an unpolished game in beta. I’m not buying the game due to the limitations with contracts and team vision, I’ll wait to see if these areas are advanced rather than stripped back. Although, I’m struggling for motivatio
  5. I’d say pretty much all of the bonuses, I do like to spread it out to save money on my weekly wage budget. Surely a newbie to the game wouldn’t be too frightened by these options? I understand that adding in all these options isn’t a gimme, so was wondering if a MOD would create a new thread with a poll of the bonuses/clauses that we want added back into the game? Plus what would the timeframe be on this being patched, if you can give one?
  6. I’m guessing they’ll bring these features back in a year or two’s time as ‘brand new’ 😂 I just hope they can get these removed features back in before it’s too late in the cycle.
  7. The game is better in most areas, ME is night and day compared to last years game. The contract stuff won’t be fixed fully and that’s been said in the bug forum. It’s a shame, and I hate complaining lol, but I guess it just irks me they stayed quiet about it till it was released. My hope is they add some of the bonuses/clauses in, get the bugs fixed which they will do and then in the new year I can reevaluate the game.
  8. The ME looks as though it’s far better than FMT20. The UI I like a lot, it’s buggy which can be patched and will, I think it’s a very clean look. For the most part it’s definitely an improvement. But I don’t want some things like training (can’t train a player on their weaker foot) or the transfer/contract engine to be too simplified. I don’t want it to feel like a freemium game.
  9. That’s fair enough, the ME has been greatly improved and from what I’ve read is far better than FM20. But, transfer negotiations are a massive part of football. I can pay a player less a week and move his salary into bonuses/clauses to save money on my weekly wage budget, but due to streamlining in FMT21 I can’t do that. The overall game looks impressive, but these features being stripped back is a turn off. The Shouts feature is a gimmick, if they’ve stripped features back for that then IMO that’s embarrassing.
  10. Under pressure? That’s pressure they’ve brought on themselves for ripping features out of a game for streamlining purposes. FMT20 was a whole lot of fun, there was no need to dumb down any feature of the game. The new additions to this years game I like, but I feel this version is one step forward two steps back. Most the bugs/glitches, as you say, will eventually be ironed out. The concerning thing is there doesn’t seem to be any intention to add the features removed as they were taken out by design. That’s my issue that the development team on this years game seem, from the outside, to
  11. I’m doing a career with PSG on FMT20, my first big team career mode in a decade. I use the bonuses in every players contract, partly because each agent wants more for their client, most players have a CL winners bonus and team of the year (domestic) bonus. I move some of the players basic weekly salary into bonuses/clauses to save money for my wage budget for contract extensions. This still baffles me why they would rip out code that’s been baked into FMT since it started, all for streamlining. If they would do a proper u-turn and add these back in plus fix the most urgent of bugs in
  12. What’s the point of this game? This game is more streamlined/dumbed down than the Mobile game. I don’t want to accuse the devs, during what has been a difficult year, of laziness but this just stinks. You’ve streamlined one of the most important features of the game yet added the Shouts feature which isn’t exactly in line with your streamlined model. Again, this version of the game just feels like it should be a freebie tacked onto the full fat game. Such a shame as I was looking forward to this game, but I’ll carry on with FMT20 in the meantime.
  13. Could you give an explanation to how this is streamlining? Its not even a full fat FM feature, it’s just a number so you know how many days till your next match at a quick glance.
  14. The season is only 23 games (I believe) as you play each team once. AFA have said there are no promotion/relegation until 2022 but am unsure if that’s replicated in game. This season was cancelled in real life and is replaced by a cup competition instead, Copa Diego Maradona. SI have decided to carry on with their normal season. So over the next few years teams will be relegated until there are 20 teams in the league. The mini cup competition at the end of the season only lasted one year but I’m guessing it’s in FM this year? I’m looking at doing a save with Gimnasia, taking the
