  1. Thanks for all the replies folks. I think i'll stick with the I7
  2. Thanks for all the input so far guys I appreciate it. Of course there are budget constraints but as i've already spec'd an I7 Build I'm not too concerned as i've already budgeted for that chip. i believe that I5 Ivy doesn't support Hyper threading is this correct? and if not does this impact on FM performance at all?
  3. Hi guys. I'm planning on building a new PC in the next week or so and i was just looking for input on which CPU would be more beneficial in FM Would you recommend an Intel I5 ivy bride 3570k Or the equivalent Ivy Bride I7 Both will be overclocked regardless and I'm looking at building a desktop. Other specs will be an SSD and 16gb of ram, GPU will most likely be a 7850. I've already spec'd out an I7 but will i see any performance increase over the I5? Thanks for the help folks.
  4. Cleon I think you've made the Defensive version of Xavi if that makes sense. The PPM's you've taught him practically mirror this, I expect knowing you this isn't by chance either
  5. I'm really liking the Non Transparant background, I've downloaded Steklo but the background for player attributes is transparant which i hate;
  6. Thats a damn shame. But thanks for your contribution to this forum you've helped out a lot of people Cleon
  7. Sometimes it's a good thing when a player like llorente retires. It gives you the chance to take your tactics into a different direction entirely. You've done a great job on Munain mind
  8. I just experienced exactly that in my last game. 0-0 approaching half time with valladolid CR7 gets injured just before half time, (which was a blessing as him and the team we're playing awful). Both myself and the opposition we're playing a flat 4-4-2, Complacency crept in. I thought hey If i just play deep and wide the space this creates between the strata will be enough. Wrong answer they just dropped the midfield back and had there 2 strikers close down. I then switched to a 4-2-3-1 after the injury and they tired, the pressing from there forward line was less intense meaning one of there central midfielders kept having to push up leaving abit more space for my AMC to operate in. It was anything but convincing but managed to grab a 2-0 win. Although with all that being said. I think i may need to sell a forward as i feel i'm starting to over rotate in order to accomadate players. Here you can see my squad:- Ignore all the unregistered players. They are their to mentor at this stage. I feel it's quite diverse every players offers something slightly different, but as you can see I have 13 players to play in a max of 5 Positions.
  9. Will be keeping Tabs on this for sure Personally I upload to imageshack they don't tend to delete the images i upload. And i can just copy the forum code which will insert the image perfectly.
  10. Just sitting here watching my Real Tea, hand Zaragoza there asses led me to think Why? Why am i able to do this? (Bare with me here this isn't a post to boast pardon the pun) But the reason isn't my skill or lack of skill as a manager, it's my squad. Furious has hit the nail on the head here and should be congratulated because what he has given the community is a template on how to build a squad. If you can build a squad and have a understanding of how player instructions interact with each other your on the right track when it comes to FM. A Versatile squad is so valuable, I've been lucky enough to create a squad where an injury is a blessing as it gives someone else the chance to step up and come into the team. this someone most likely won't be a carbon copy of his predecessor however because this is the definition of my squad:- Having someone who can offer something different. I look at 2 of the best squad builders in the world in Sir Alex and Jose and I see interesting trends. If we look at who Real could play on the left hand side We have Di Mariá (Winger) Cr7 (Inside forward) Ozil (Creator). Thats one position but 3 different ways to play it, now on the face of this it could provide a problem Cr7 gets injured and there is no replacement? but the way I look at it is I have to either adapt my playing style or shoehorn Di Maria or Ozil into his position. In actuality it can work quite differently, Di Maria and Ozil can provide different options and combinations. So where as CR7 is greedy and will look to go it alone most of the time Ozil will look to feed Higuain which can be a very potent combination. The point im trying to make is by having variation to your players you can really build a dynamic adaptable squad which will give you tactical flexibility. Don't have a midfield full of DLP's vary it and play with the combinations to see what works best. ^ See what I mean?
  11. Hope the DPI scaling has been fixed! FM2012 was unplayed due to fonts being hard to read, I hope this is resolved as i'm still playing 2011 with 2012 collecting dust! All sounds good to me though looking forward to getting my hands on it!
  12. Romanista. Higuain is one of the best CF tutors on the game. 16 Determination Evasive Reserved Media handling and resolute iirc. This is pretty much a perfect combination for any youngster! I posted Sara up originally to get a view on him from the masses and hopefully to provoke some debate in regards to how we choose to mould our players and why. And also to a larger extent of how we view our players. I'm sure many of you will know the phrase "one man's trash is another mans treasure" and I find this works perfectly in FM. I think the true skill is in seeing the value in all players and trying to find a way to get the most out of them. If we can't get everyone posting there prospects up and discuss them then I think we as a collective can improve by learning from one another. I don't think there is a "wrong" way when it comes to attribute distribution as it all depends on the bigger picture. Sorry for the ramble PS i'll upload more next week! hopefully in the mean time we can get everyone elses prospects up and dissect them and make this thread as lively as the awesome OP deserves!
