  1. Cool-io. edit: Will be interesting to see if the 2018 season includes LAFC and Miami (I doubt it, since Miami still hasn't finalized a stadium plan).
  2. Question for anyone who has MLS active (I'm at work at won't be home for another 6+ hours, and then have to finish downloading the beta that Steam lied to me about how long it would take): Can you confirm that Minnesota United and Atlanta United are in the game? Thought I saw them in the FM17 features video
  3. Looks more like how I envisioned Bobby Nicol. I always pictured Hamish like: http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-GpFdSBND-xM/Upq2Mp3pXAI/AAAAAAAAn8I/A1T-8A3cLws/s1600/ma-sorciere-bien-aimee-serietv-s1-ep19-06-g.jpg
  4. Anyway, so a question about using a photo of yourself to provide a facemap in creating your avatar: If you wear eyeglasses normally, will you have to take them off to be able to create an accurate facemap?
  5. Mind you, "matter of hours" means it could still be close to dinner time in the UK.
  6. Was going to post about the in-game Brexit implications too. Will certainly put a new spin on career threads. I might actually read some of the ones based in England now.
  7. I keep starting games with Stellaris but never finish them. Haven't finished this current CK2 save, but I'm up to 1100-ish (starting with Charlemagne in 767). Still have just the one county (and a vassal barony to go with it)., despite almost always getting a "Papal State" cardinal's chancellor trying to fabricate a claim (I'm in Siena).
  8. Yeah, Civ 6 is on my wishlist. Will probably wait for a sale though. Still want to take my CK2 save and convert it for an EUIV save too.
  9. Spotted the Atlanta United and Minnesota United logos in the MLS SuperDraft around the 27:30 mark. Safe to assume LAFC and Miami will be included as well?
  10. Got myself a new laptop last month, gone and preordered FM17 in time to get the discount. Looking forward to seeing how it runs with an SSD. (It's this one: http://pcverge.com/acer-aspire-e15-15-6-e5-575g-53vg-laptop-review/ From what I've seen on YouTube, it's dead easy to upgrade the memory too.)
  11. I'm sort of the same way. I'm fine with the "no more than 3 foreign players in the squad" or "must have 8 players trained in the country" type of rules, but I hate, hate, hate rules like "must have 5 U23 players in the first XI" When it comes to signing players, I'm pretty disciplined there (usually keep the first-team squad to somewhere in the 22-24 range, enough for a backup at every position and maybe a couple other options if I feel I should go with 5 defenders instead of 4 for a match, for example). But I usually offer everyone a trial. I think at times I've had a dozen players on trial at the same time, in addition to my usual first-team numbers.
  12. *rolls into thread* OK, let's get this show on the .... what? AW GOD DAMMIT! ( @pheelf got robbed. Winning the Champions League with a Norn Iron side ought to be worth at least one gong)
  13. Really liking the new(ish?) format with the little icons for "the season", "club development", etc.
  14. Yeah, Ultimate Soccer Manager was my favorite until I discovered ChampMan.
  15. Got this new rig in transit to me: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01DT4A2R4/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Seen a couple videos also that it's **** easy to add more RAM or another hard drive.
  16. Might as well have as many lottery tickets as you can afford. Never know if one of them will get a devastating injury, or another's hidden stats mean he'll flame out against Premier League players.
  17. Didn't complete the comeback, but on FM 15, I was managing Smartno in Slovenia. We got into the Europa League through the fair play backdoor and eventually got drawn with Bordeaux. We lost the away leg 4-0, and conceded early in the return leg to go down 5-0 on aggregate. I decided we might as well go down fighting, so I instructed the team to go all-out attack. We ended up losing on away goals, 5-5 aggregate.
  18. Could have been a legend on the South Coast, instead he took the cash.
  19. What DodgeeD said. I might actually pre-order now.
