  1. How do we do this via steam? My friend invited me but it just loaded to FM start screen
  2. The most bizarre change I've found with the patch is that now every game my assistant recommends changing formation to accommodate a player who has been transfer listed and surplus to requirements for 3 years
  3. Patch has killed my star striker. 29 in 25 pre patch, 0 in 10 post patch including missing all 3 of his penalties
  4. Since the patch my games have gone from pretty much only penalties being ccc to shots with an xG as low as 0.07 being a ccc
  5. Just imagine if having a have a bad relationship with a journalist knocked 20m off what another football club bids for your player
  6. It's not just the derisory bids, the press reports that happen before a bid usually suggest that my players are available at a much more reasonable price than when I declare my interest in another teams players. Quite often the press reports will say my star players could be available for less than they're worth despite no reason such as unhappiness or contract length.
  7. Yeah this has happened to me. Won 2-1 to a late winner. Well done boys that was a good win for us... Until it became a 1-1 draw afterwards Never had this pre patch. I've also just clicked to play a game and it's just taken me to latest scores, can't even view my game (this turned out to be a waterlogged pitch)
  8. No, only real difference I can see was he had no key passes for the first time this season. A one off bad performance that just happened to come first game after the fix
  9. I hadn't noticed poor full back ratings, my lb is 4th highest average this season never getting lower than a 7.2 ... until it was fixed and first game he gets a 6.4, typical. Back to his old self next game tho
  10. Every game it tells me the same player is used to playing a more direct game after 7 seasons of short passing so I'd say quite a lot longer than one year. I've had the best defensive record for the past 2 seasons but every game several players still think the formation will expose us at the back. It certainly could, but by now they should realise its not worth getting upset about.
  11. I've just received the Domination achievement (3 consecutive top division titles) for winning back to back league titles. Hopefully this means next season should be a walk in the park.
  12. This screen wasn't there for me in the beta but is in the full release. Have no idea why it has been added but please make it go away again.
  13. It might not be unplayable but it's certainly not enjoyable, which for me is the same thing. I only watch key highlights and rely on match stats to let me know where I have problems and I find the stats this year are absolutely no help. The amount of games with 15 cc that have come from long balls over the top resulting in a missed one on one is absurd. Maybe the scores and results reflect real life but the match stats definitely don't.
  14. Certainly not something obvious, Spurs qualified in my game having not been in either European competition let alone winning. Finished 8th in the prem, fa Cup semi final and league Cup runners up.
  15. As the title suggests really. Champions league final with Bournemouth against FM Man Utd (the team that performs least like their real life counterparts) and it's desmond. Get a penalty and instead of being by one of my 3 listed pen takers, it's taken by a player who has scored twice. He misses. How do I stop this from happening? (the taker, not the outcome)
  16. Well multiplayer now doesn't work so no I don't have anything better to do cuz I can't play FM
  17. How come I can go on holiday at 5pm on a Saturday after a game on single player but on network I have to wait until the Sunday?
  18. New patch has just broken the game for me on network. Can't confirm any subs, can't even cancel trying to make a sub so it's either 90 mins with the same players or can't complete a game,can't confirm bids for any players, can't offer players out.
  19. My update has paused saying 'missing file privileges'. Any ideas how to resolve?
  20. Having played a bit more I'm really not a fan of the whole match day experience now. Never played 3d as I simply don't like it even tho I do try it out each FM but its just not for me. So many extra clicks, lack of a proper split screen view and having to choose between seeing match stats and a blank pitch when no highlight or not being able to see match stats when there isn't a highlight. I don't mind dynamics, don't particular enjoy that side of the game but adds an extra challenge. Upsetting my players left right and center every time I try and sell someone. Players not interested in what I've got to say at team talks but yet react positively to my team talks doesn't really make sense. As Everton I signed Belotti to join Sandro and Rooney in a front 3. All 3 new to the club, never played together before. Rooney & Sandro have an untestested partnership as do Sandro and Belotti, not Belotti & Rooney tho. Was surprised to see Kane & Eriksen having an untested partnership at Spurs, must have been watching a different team for the last few seasons. Seeing a lot of crosses being tipped over the bar by the keeper with a 'he didn't mean that'. Might just be my tactics or me just not remembering that aspect of the FM17 match engine as I'm still pining over the things that have changed that I miss.
  21. On FM17 when the half time or full time whistle went it would take you straight to the team talk. Om FM18 you have to click to get to team talk. Why has this click been added?
  22. Don't have many complaints about the game so far but the bits i don't like i really don't like. No issues with the match engine so far but early days, played about 20 games. Have always played split screen so not to be able to find that as an option is just baffling. Having exclusively played split screen for the past however many years I'm now struggling to find out how to see my clear cut & half cut chances during the game. Any tips greatly appreciated, I can get it to show while a highlight is playing but nothing when its not. One thing I have noticed is that players are disinterested before every team talk. All 3 aspects of dynamics are better than average but players are just disinterested despite the overall positives.
