There seems to be a lot of penalties, and most of them are missed. I've just had three in one match, and 6 in total in the last 3 matches.
There's a lot of injuries, almost one every match.
It feels like there's more of a noticeable difference between styles.
Players now make more of an effort to work the ball in to the box instead of constantly taking long shots.
Long shots are improved. In FM18 so many were blasted high and wide and were more likely to hit the corner flag than the goal.
The screen stayed black and I was forced to ctrl alt del to force the game to exit after I changed to windowed mode.
I like the improved ball physics.
Really like the new UI. The colours are pleasant to look at for hours at a time.
Overall I really like the ME. Someone commented on the alpha stating there are too many crosses. I haven't found that at all. I play a narrow system and a lot of the play is through the middle with my wing backs overlapping to provide width. There's no more crosses than you'd see in a real match.
I'm going to enjoy tweaking my tactics more than ever this year, which is mostly what I care about; along with transfers (which I why I'm playing FM Touch). Good job.
