  1. Always on, in LL its actually the game to unearth the good players by very peripheral knowledge and i higher leagues your scouts mostly are so good you know a lot of the players anyway. Even more fun to have some myteries and actal managing and risk taking to do. Otherwise i could just download a wonderkids list and have them go at it, creating an unbeatable club everytime. Just not my kind of playing style, and it is really very nice to really find someone sometimes by just sseing him play against you, very selective scouting and luck sometimes. Nothing can be rewarding as that. The the new A
  2. Yep, its complicated, but for FM alone i do have the impresson more and more that the goldilocks zone could be somewhere i5 and a 1050. From there of course bigger is always better , but there id go with an i7 before a investing in a better GPU. Its basically what i narrowed it down know from having started with your tips and having to go through 3 new laptops from i5 to MSI i7 in a short mount of time.
  3. Ahh ok, i concentrated on the bottleneck part, and this being asked for FM specifically. I can also say still the bottleneck seems neglectable for a normal gamer like me, even with more demanding games. On FM alone , a i7 is a bit of a waste but a great grahpic card even more from my experience.
  4. Really interested how a graphics card could bottleneck FM, for me its basically important to have fast processing of the databas and the week, graphics card should only matter for the game and if SI really needs a top graphic cards to process some stick figures its really bad programming. If have the 1050 ti and would be absolutely shocked if FM would use its resources so bad it could create a bottleneck and even then its "only " the 3D game, for me FM is mostly about processing the game itself. I have to admit i have played higher demanding game with it like NBA 2k19 on very good seetings an
  5. Get the highest single core performance , that being said, the i7 mostly profits in multicore environments so i thing a highly tacted i 5 still is the best bang for the buck for FM 19. Thats why i also would always take an intel chip because others seem to take the multicore approach over high tacts a lot. I basically learned mostly of this from you Smurf and in hindsight that what i learned ..its nice to have the i7 for games that profit a little like EU IV or Crusader Kings, but for FM alone the decision to get the cheeaper i5 with a fast as possible processor seems the best buy. Funny thing
  6. I sometimes think, wow, why is it so slow now and then remember to connect my laptop to the power supply. :-D I would also say cleaning the computer from unimportant stuff could help.
  7. I had an i5 and have an i7 now. For FM alone get the i5 , you really dont profit enough in this game to make it worthwhile to get the bigger CPU.
  8. Yeah, that wound came up immediately here too. :-D
  9. I think the general problem is that all Ryzen work good on their multicores, but FM is mostly using only the main core to crunch the numbers. So id always go for the Intel. Less cores and high processing power on the main core. In m ypersonal opionion the i5 is the sweet spot to hit when running FM ATM, decent processing power actually used. All extra cores and great graphic cards dont really improve a lot for a high price. If you have extra Money get an i 7 but ist already in the little gain in the game for a hefty price department.
  10. Also came to FM fame because not long ago they shared Allianz with Bayern. Started a game with FC Kaiserlautern and tried to make Betzenberg what he once was again , got promoted, saw i had a lot of young talent and the new Andreas Möller in the youth but got sacked in 2. Bundesliga :-(
  11. Loaded up and old save just to look into the game, i also think the UI runs a lot more fluid.Also the game itself looks interesting, the ball movement seems a lot ore fluid and less static and the ball glued to the players this often results in soe weird actions too, but all in all i like it , my players are supposed to make some mstakes too after all in Liga 2.
  12. Also it seems very easy to shift t least 2 defenders over to the side still if Liverpool manages to pass to the right and shift the play there. It looks like it will still result in at least a 1 on 1 situation leaving ore time for defenders to shift to another shape then and help out.
  13. I had a game wher eno matter what striker i used i just couldnt get them to score , i had a whos-who of top strikers and couldnt get any of them to score whatsoever. I remember getting a top striker of Leverkusen (Volland, dont remember for 7 Million and having to sell him on for 8 Million because he jsut couldnt hit the braod side of a barn. I thought the solo striker System in FM 19 was broken beyond repair.Then stumbled upon a 32 year old cast-off Mariano and he suddenly netted like 30 goals for me out of the blue. What i learned is especially the stirker in a solo formation in this game re
  14. Everyone to his own ,the way you describe it it sounds like pokemon. :-D I dont doubt the value of it and how it can be read properly i am just so bad an uninterested myself in doing the exact maths that i have to lie to myself i like F for his accuracy and the sheer numbers in the atts at least. :-D Dont tell anyone but i often look ant ANT and how many atts are green basically :-D But no i totally anaylyse the att sheet in and out :-D
  15. Interesting, i never really got into the octagon, always looked like a waste of space to mee and felt "FIFA" somehow, cheapish.
  16. I have the fondest memories of CM 03/04 and FM 2005 , could see myself rush through the season so nicely there, and i love the 2005 UI.
  17. They secretely changed the code so lower atts make them convert, better just to **** you off. Seems logical.
  18. That makes some sense, i am re the guy to look at the squad and the attributes and say...yeah they have ****** strikers, we could iron that out. On an FM level heres my experience in my Everton saves: I have a lot of gaes of 40-2 shots i always have to to hope to get a draw or better...so is there a lot of conclusion i can take from that ...my strikers are top ..i can just say it ust be y possession based tactics and hope for the best..not much to really find a eak spot here and inmprove it.
  19. I think the argument is over time luck will be a non factor which is a statistical basis , its like saying in gabling in the end the bank wins, but basing individual avanced stats to coe to quality conclusions of a player in football sees reaching. As i said in baseball were circumstances are a lot more predictable it i might make some sense.
  20. Just love that old time grass background and skin of 2005. For the lack of 2005 which somehow was the perfect mix between clean style, sleek look and depth i went for 2006 which wasnt much different anyway. . Somehow the game then after 2007 became more and more complex , but lost general flair and fun for me. Had all the version still until 12 but lost interest. Then got 15 and 17 on sale which were a good decision, 17 seemed very balanced to me. I never did regret not getting 18, it seemed very superficial and unbalanced. I have to admit i expected 19 to be a lot better, it focused to much
  21. Thats basically what it comes down too, that new advanced stats Industry says you are a dinsoaurs if you cant see that this is the future and everything just has to be measured correctly to be used in an advanced stat. Problem is i cant see a lot of really telling measurements thta could be used to paint a telling picture thats translates the huge complexizy of the game into a simple to use calculated end product that describes quality of play and makes it possible to base decisions on.
  22. Still Football is very subjective on ist stats and the game even more doesnt really care to have a proper representation of "exact" stats. This sport just isnt meant to be to Project "Moneyball" ike stats were everything seems to be able to be numbered and computed down. I see the American Sports is very crazy for those Things now, but will it down to a nearly accurate science in Baseball , i see it has brought a lot of advancement to Hockey too, but reached ist Limits also rather fast. In American Football ist basically denied in usefullness, because the flags now dominate the game more than
  23. My experience is also that in Premier league at least players dont really hold up. Top clubs want to get rid of them when they reach 28. I often get them as Everton to stay close to the top, but i know if i get a 28 year old he will start to decline until 30 then you can only hope and pray you get a nice offer from China, because as a top player in this league he becomes useless.
