  1. FM Careers Forum Discussion

    I passed on the "contract extension" discount because the "Dynamics" video had me concerned about the likelihood of bugs. But the changes to scouting and tactics look really good. I never got into FM 17 (think I have only 30-some hours on record) but I'm actually kind of excited about this one. I'll probably still wait until it goes on sale at some point, by which time any bugs likely will have been sorted out. Probably do the usual unemployed/no badges/no rep/journeyman save. Might change up the leagues I load though; usually the squad restrictions some countries have (like "must have two U23 players in the first XI") would put me off until I realized I usually look for those players on free transfer anyway. Might just start with the English-speaking and Spanish-speaking nations because FM gives you fluency in both as an American. I'm getting old though, so I may need to create a manager instead of just plugging myself into the game.
  2. FM Careers Forum Discussion

    Hi, rancer. Bye, rancer.
  3. Video careers, should they be allowed?

    This. I think the nice thing about this forum is it's generally allowed people to post in their own way. Whether that be only after their season concludes, or game-by-game. So if someone wants to post their career updates in video form, I think that's fine. I personally don't watch them, but that's because I prefer to read and detest the "pivot to video" RL sports media outlets are trying to do now. I agree with db though that it shouldn't just be spamming videos to the forum (or driving traffic to your vlog, but I kinda feel the same way if someone were posting links from here to an offline blog where they write up their career). There should be some kind of interaction, even if it's a just a quick "FFS, we just blew a 2-goal lead in stoppage time. "
  4. Football Manager TV: Scouting

    I thought it might just be me, since I'm used to "league average" and "replacement level" players in the context of US sports.
  5. Football Manager TV: Scouting

    I'd also like a "league average" somewhere to be able to make comparisons. OK, this MC in my squad averages 3.7 interceptions. How does that compare to the league average? Is he better than or worse than average? If there's a way to find that, I've never been able to do so.
  6. Football Manager TV: Scouting

    If this had been the first video, I would have snapped up the "contract extension" offer.
  7. Football Manager TV: Dynamics

    Clearly the solution is to bring back wibble/wobble.
  8. Imagine if dynamics leads to a Dyer-Bowyer situation though.
  9. Football Manager TV: Dynamics

    Same. I've been holding off on the "contract extension" pre-release purchase until some more details came out, and this has actually made me think I'll wait a few months until it's working as intended.
  10. FM Careers Forum Discussion

    Eh, maybe I'm going to hold off on buying until there's assurance this is actually working as intended.
  11. Looking forward to the RAGE POSTS when the dynamics aspect causes the squad's morale and form turn south because you don't want to negotiate a new contract with an Influential Player in-season.

  13. Short Seasons

    IIRC, Hong Kong is 18 games, but has three or four cups. Iceland is 22 games

    What is dead may never die.
  15. Because it originated when two teams couldn't agree on whether to play with FA rules or rugby rules, so they agreed to a hybrid. And it took off from there (there's actually still a "free kick" rule in the NFL rulebook). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1869_college_football_season There's also Canadian football, which is similar to American football but on a longer field and with 12 men instead of 11. The CFL actually developed out of rugby organizations.
