  1. Yeah there's definitely a difference but I think it was necessary to take the game to the next level graphics wise in terms of the amount of animations etc One step back two steps forward kind of thing
  2. I liked FM17 but it may just be because the system demands jumped steeply for the 3D in FM18. My guess is though that most peoples answers will coincide with memorable saves they've had on that particular version so it may not be that reliable. Nostalgia is a funny old thing
  3. I think you'll struggle to get a laptop that runs the graphics higher than medium for £500. £650+ is where the systems with decent dedicated graphics start That said i've found this for £550 but if you use the code DASINSP10 at the checkout it brings it down to £494.10 https://www.dell.com/en-uk/shop/laptops/inspiron-15/spd/inspiron-15-5505-laptop/cn55003?cjevent=a6c8ade1b65611eb802c00e70a180510&dgc=CJ&publisherid=3743973&cjdata=MXxOfDB8WXww&gacd=9684977-24628710-5750457-280362152-136708306&dgc=af&VEN1=14311761-7988612-0p009g79gkc1&dclid=CO-p28K6zvACFQjJu
  4. Both of these things are "cheating" in the context of this thread so you'd hope that would go without saying
  5. Doing this in conjunction with your no star & attribute skin would be crazy! I can see you suggesting playing blindfolded next I wonder what the press conferences will be like. Will they ask you in another language if you think not knowing that language will be a problem
  6. Player Name: Neuf Lamas Nation of birth: Martinique Month and date of birth (year will be set for all) 24 June Ht/Wt (in meters/kgs) 2.1m / 100kg position(s): ST (no secondary) Assign one attribute (4 total) (technical/mental/physical) at 18, 15, 12...and 3. Rest of attributes will be randomized by the database.: Strength - 18 Balance - 15 First Touch - 12 Flair - 3 You may select one PPM: Static Target Man (Hope this still exists) if not then Plays with back to goal
  7. On current form I'm prepared to try anything! May have to be a Greggs Corned Beef pasty as it's the regional special round my way
  8. Next you'll be telling me that my lucky socks have no effect on my results
  9. iirc it just makes the "tips" at the top whilst processing go quicker, so yeah complete placebo
  10. great question and the best way to find out, I guess, would be to change the value in the editor and run a few tests
  11. You make a good point but as others have said in this thread they don't want to have to limit themselves in order to make the game realistic which I can kind of agree with. I will say though that I do limit myself a lot by not using player search and using a 1 hour signing rule for Amateur and Semi Pro teams etc but what I've come to realise is that we should all strive to get the most realistic experience "out of the box" as we can, until then i'll follow LLM guidelines to give myself a challenge but i'll always support those who push for a more realistic experience
  12. I'd say that was fair and clearly achievable. It's a good thing to push SI to change and it would definitely make things more realistic
  13. I wonder what the answer is to all of this then? I guess the overall takeaway is how do you make a successful management game harder/more realistic without alienating a huge chunk of your player base, who would immediately accuse the game of being rigged (and possibly not buy future versions) if they were starved of instant success? I for one do not have an answer to it but thankfully for me I'm bad enough at the game and when you couple that with the LLM guidelines I follow then the game is a big challenge for me, but I do empathise with the guys in this thread who find the game t
  14. I just think self inflicted rules are the only way. I have plenty of friends that play FM and they just want to blast through the game, win the champs league with their favourite side and that's it. I had a conversation with them about the difficulty etc and they simply said they wouldn't buy it if it were too hard/realistic I wonder how many would be happy with a career like Sam Allardyce for instance? A highly thought of manager but he has only ever won a couple of play off finals and a fourth tier title in 30 seasons. Who would be happy with that? And lets face it he's a bad
  15. Funnily enough I'm the same, I buy it every year without fail, they would have to really do something horrible to the game at this point to lose my custom. You are not the only one who finds this game hard, far from it. This thread does not represent everyone that buys the game. I myself am terrible at the game. Awful in fact. I'm yet to win a league or get a promotion in FM21, I mostly scrape around trying to avoid relegation (which can be rewarding to be fair). I don't read tactics forums or anything like that though, I prefer to work things out for myself. I figure when (if) I ge
