    Anyone get the new version then - so good this year.

    Anyone ordered OOTP 19 then? Out on 22nd but if you pre ordered you get it on 19th. New UI makes it look a lot more modern and if you play out games the new 3D looks really good. Gameplay video here: https://youtu.be/mPuT5lnrMwI Roll on Monday!

    OOTP 18 is only £10.20 until 1st November for those that don't have it. I've actually surpassed my FM playing time with this game now.
  4. 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.

    @BuryBlade Sorry just noticed that you asked regarding the iOS version of OOTP. The mobile version of the game definitely has enough in it to be enjoyable and immersive for you. Obviously there are differences in that the mobile version does have a lot of things scaled back but not at the expense of you being able to have a long term save and get really into it. I actually play both versions - the full version I tend to play over the autumn/winter months when I have more time for gaming and I play the mobile version over the summer when I tend to be away a lot. The mobile version is a bargain for the longevity you get out of it so you should go for it.

    I see this is down to £8.49 for the next week. How do people find this for those that have a passing interest in the sport - I watch the F1 but wouldn't really have any idea on the management side of things. Is it easy enough to get to grips with?
  7. I use this for stubble and it does the job well. Don't think I'll ever find a 'perfect' shaver for stubble as mine seems to grow all different ways and so I'm having to go over it numerous times with the shaver. This is the best one so far but hopefully a better one will come out one day.

    Anyone still playing this? Final patch has been released today so going to start a final long term save until the new one hits next year. Wanting to start with a franchise that I can build up - was thinking of the Miami Marlins. Should be a challenge!

    Yeah the mobile version is still very good - I like to have it for when I'm on the move and not able to play the full version on the laptop. Like you say it is watered down compared to the full version but it's still a damn good game especially with it only being an app. They are planning on doing a complete overhaul of the mobile versions and have it a bit like FMT where it will be cross platform between the full game and your tablet. That's not looking likely for another year or two yet but in the meantime the mobile version will still give you plenty hours of enjoyment.

    If I was told that I could only play one game for the rest of my days then I would choose this. Absolutely love it! Like FM, they are not implementing huge changes with this release but with a game this detailed then they don't really need it. My Giants save is going badly still - partly my own fault as I've got into the mindset of "things can turnaround quickly in baseball" and so haven't really done anything from my end to try and turn things round. Have had a few beers now so will go back to it over the weekend and shake things up a bit to try and get an improvement.

    They had the builds on their website for people to download as some people weren't getting emails or not checking the spam folder. Like you, I never got an email but seen on the forums about the download link so got it that way. It wasn't really well done as if you're not on their forums then you would never know.

    Well my Giants save is going terribly - currently 7-18! One of the owners goals is to play .500 baseball for the season - I'll be lucky to play .300 the way things are going. Only signing so far has been taking Desmond Jennings off waivers. Going to have to really look at the team though as we are just so poor. The bullpen is really bad and players like Bumgarner, Cueto and Samardzija just aren't producing.

    I started with the Giants too - think the bullpen is still horrendous! Off to a 2-5 start so not that much better than you! Game feels really nice and polished - it already has that much in it that you feel it's just subtle changes it will need year on year rather than massive over hauls. Really impressed with the skin - feels really slick and looks really nice too.

    So OOTP18 out on Friday but if you pre-ordered direct then you get access from today. I'm currently waiting on the email to download it and can't wait. Been wanting to start a new save for ages but held off as wanted to wait for the new version. First game I've bought in years that isn't going to be through Steam but as it's the only game I play on PC these days then I'm happy to purchase direct. Are some of you getting the new version this week/in the coming weeks? Would be good to keep this thread updated with how we're all doing etc.

    I'm playing a Giants save as well and failed to sign Casilla despite being GM/Manager. I only made him one offer which he refused and to be honest I don't really want to resign him - I'm doing well so hopefully the owner dismisses this. Like you the three top guys in the rotation Bumgarner, Cueto and Samardzjia are doing great and it can be hit and miss with Peavy and Cain if your batters fail to show up on the day. The star man for me though is Buster Posey - absolutely fantastic!
