Some good constructive posts here, some not so amazing - but passion and commitment from those participating in the public and private beta is is appreciated greatly by the whole SI team. We sometimes have to accept we come at some topics from different perspectives but we have a shared goal. I believe we all want to make the very best game that gives the maximum enjoyment.
The ME has always been an emotive subject, many (i'd be brave enough to say the majority) who play the game enjoy it without any knowledge of issues. We're well aware there can be issues and we'll continue to do our best to take onboard feedback, log it (if we dont already have it logged) and fix. It's complex code, some things are easy to solve, some things are long term projects but whenever me make any kind of change we have to try and balance across a variety of different criteria - sometimes we dont get it all right however I am still confident, on balance, that it remains a solid representation of football.
19.2 is not far away from official launch. I'm going to ask the SI team to back out of this thread for a short while to let the dust settle a bit. We view this optional public beta as a positive (there have been well over 1000 of you who participated), we thank you for your involvement. I know some of you disagree with such a beta, but it's a policy we're going to continue with and we would love for you to continue to help us.
