  1. Loki Doki for me, he is very funny. Golden FM because I like regen series.
  2. But your whining was about your entitlement as a paying customer. And I gave a perfect example of why it's a ******** entitlement logic. I will mention it again before you can start throwing another round of your hissy fit... ... If you don't like a product you have paid for it, don't buy it next time. If possible, get a refund. If it has a demo, try it, before buy it otherwise stay away. Don't you test drive many cars before buying a car you liked? Do you go back to other car dealers and bitch about flaws of their cars? You can keep playing your favourite FM for many years, it will not stop working.
  3. Ditto. I miss FM 2008 simplicity, even FM11 and FM15 were pretty much engaging and complex gameplay without extra "features". While FMT is good but it's still does not come close to FM08-like gameplay.
  4. You can always not to buy the game and keep playing the existing one. Nobody's shoving it in your rear end to make you buy every year.
  5. This is a ****** website, do not purchase from them. Fraudulent website.
  6. I voted three games - FM08, FM15 & FM16. Although I have all the FM games from FM08 - FM17, these 3 has special position in my heart. FM08: This was my first Football Manager game, I played management games for many years but FM08 was my first introduction to SI (beforehand I used to play Soccer World Manager and EA's Total Club Manager till 2007). So this game will always have special place in my heart. FM15: The best FM in my opinion which has solid match engine, dynamic reputation and league add/remove features. Not too much forced player/press interaction. I have played FM15 highest number of hours. FM16: Last year I moved back to FM16 after got bored with FM17, and I found renewed love for FM16. I detest social feature of FM17 and FM16 is everything FM17 except social feature. It has become new darling in my life now.
  7. Yes, definitely. You can distribute the payment over times. But AI manager might re-negotiate the amount accordingly. Also remember, your transfer budget will only be charged for that year's payment total, not the full amount. So this is helpful if you want to buy a player valued more than your transfer budget. Let's say, my transfer budget is 60M. I try to follow this rule to buy a player X valued 80M, like this: upfront: 30M 48M over 24 months = 2M / per month 2M after 40 Games (make it more than 90% of your expected total games this season) Few extras like sell on clause etc. This way, for first year, I have to pay (30 + 24) = 54M from my transfer budget. Very unlikely you have to fork #3 clause in the first year, if you carefully selected the option. So second year's budget will remain only (24 + 2) = 26M This is one of the way to go, you have to play around different calculations.
  8. If you are onto it, CM01-02 is free now and quite updated. You can try that. Website
  9. Honestly, what do you expect from FM? Both, FM and FIFA caters to different group of gamer. You like to play realistic football game? Fifa or PES is your best bet. You want simulation of real life football world with tactical battle against a matured and great AI? nobody does that like FM does. So its up to you, which type of football gamer are you. Choose accordingly.
  10. Upgraded on day 1. Yes, it had few issues during early time. But after couple of updates, I like it very much. You should've upgraded to it (if you haven't done it already). If you don't like it, revert back to WIn7 but this license will be forever for yours.
  11. you can do all of this from tactics. You can change the "long Shot" settings to rarely or often for your striker or AM. You can put your LB to man-mark against the opponent RM.
  12. I just loved FMC. It's awesome. Hats off to SI for this. I feel these can be added to FMC to make it far better. 1) Basic team talks. I just want to raise morale in half time and full time. 2) More leagues at startup (6 or 9 based upon system spec). Also, I would like to add/remove leagues during playtime. 3) I want to get back retrain player functionality in FMC. I don't want full-fledge training functionality but retraining will be good addition.
  13. Thanks. I never knew it. You learn new things everyday.
  14. I was in similar position like you. I bought FM2012 in beginning of May, so almost everywhere the season is coming to an end. I setup a new game, holidayed for 1 year and voila! I am in 2012 july. Now all the clubs made transfers, but not all players are changed, almost every clubs have almost same team with few new players. This will make you feel like a new season and will keep things interesting.
  15. I have Oct-2011 model Macbook Pro 15", it runs FM better than my Windows laptop (although WINDOWS lappy is a bit low-speced).
