So I've decided on my game for FM20 and it's going to be a Level 11 save. So I can't start it yet. But I've never had a successful game at level 11 so I thought I'd practise a bit with FM19 before buying FM20 once the level 11 database is out and the game is fully patched. I think this is how I will consume FM from now on - it seems to make more sense, but it means my games will start in February/March usually. That's fine.
So for now, I'm the manager of East Manchester in the...you guessed it...Manchester League (Premier Division to be exact). I've actually started this game already but I'm getting into it and wanted to get some feedback on my gameplay. For the first time, though, I'm starting to make YouTube videos. I think once I get used to it, this will suit my style and though I intend to keep documenting on here for my FM20 save (which is in the Middlesex Premier League by the way), the updates will be a bit less detailed, and instead will each reference a YouTube video to go with each post.
I've made a few of the videos already, so please head over to my channel 'greyedoutman' on YouTube and check it out. I'd really appreciate comments, particularly on the tactical side of my play and anything to do with the video production/editing side, which I am still very new at (if you watch from the beginning you'll see a very sharp learning curve on even the first three videos, the last of which is uploading as we speak ready for publishing tomorrow afternoon).
From the end of the first season, I will post regular updates (not sure what intervals just yet, but I will see how it goes), and link to all of my YouTube videos if you want to follow in more detail. I hope as my skills get better you'll find it entertaining but at least in this "experiment" with FM19, it will be more about improving both my FM skills and my video editing skills! Hopefully by the time I'm ready to move to FM20, I'll have a good idea of how to make them look better and what people are enjoying!
If you want to check out the story so far, the first three links are below - usually these videos will be at 3pm daily although I decided to make a good start with three over the weekend:
Episode One Episode Two Episode Three
And between episodes I stream sometimes on Twitch - GreyedOutMan - do come and say hi!
