  1. I really think it's poor show from SI to not mention that they have done away with the old 2D match view pre release. It would at least give people who used that view due to preference or system requirements the chance to reassess whether they wanted to continue with the purchase of FM18 or continue with an older version. From the response so far I do get why it has been done and that it will allow with the long term development of the match engine. I don't get though why this did not warrant any mentioning at all in the build up to the beta release. Also to say the new 2D view or the 'data analyst' view is the 'same 'as the older 2D view is wrong - it looks and feels totally different. In fact it feels 'cartoonish' and looks more like something suited to a mobile game. For what it's worth I am enjoying the game and am not posting this to rant at SI as I know this decision was probably a difficult one to make - I just feel this could have been communicated as part of the build up to release.
  2. Anyone playing a Chelsea game on FM17 yet? Currently looking to try and strengthen the back line - keeping Terry as a tutor (will play cup games and odd league game if needed) and hopefully get him on the coaching staff at some point, will be looking to get rid of Ivanovic and probably Cahill. Think Zouma (when fit) along with a CB that I bring in will be first choice, Luiz as cover along with bringing youths through. Definitely need to sign a really good RB too. Think the midfield will do for the first season and also look to bring through some of the youngsters. Definitely looking to sign a forward as competition to Costa along with breaking Batshuayi in without having pressure on him. Still tinkering with tactics but think a 4-2-3-1 along with 4-1-2-2-1 will be the route I'll be going down. Quite tempted to try Conte's 3 at the back but will stick to what I know for now.
  3. Just bought the game despite having limited to no knowledge of how the management side of hockey works! Apart from watching the odd game on the tv and playing NHL on the Playstation that is about it! Have downloaded some rosters/facepacks/logos and read up on various things in order to make a start - if anything at least I will learn all about a new sport. the game does look very in depth and has that familiar FM feel about it - may just take me a long time to get to the start of the season! Anyway if anything it will be a refreshing change from playing FM all the time and at that price I really couldn't turn it down!

    FM 15 features

    Surely the game is at the stage now where there will never be any 'major' additions as such? So really it is just going to be general tweaking/improving what's there along with any other small additions. Some of them I think 'hmmm not so fussed for that' hen others I think 'sounds good - never even thought of that!' With the new season well underway I'm looking forward to this being released.
