    This reporter should really do his research before asking stupid questions... We're 1st in the English Championship and with 8 games to go, we're 30 points ahead of the relegation zone. It's mathematically not even possible anymore.
  2. Take your time mate. Looking forward to realease!
  3. +1 for that. The face of my virtual self is always to skinny in the cheeks. Tried several different pictures and moved the yellow dots around but couldn't get the model right. I know it's flattering to see a skinny version if myself, but it's not really fat-faced me.
  4. You didn't get my point. FM shouldn't get involved with the political debate if the WC should be rescheduled, played somewhere else or leave as is. Because of this message, they're siding with the opinion of stripping Qatar of the WC. The fact is that it's still being organised in Qatar so it should stay like that in the game. I personally don't have an opinion on the matter, but I'm sure some people will.
  5. This popped up: "Due to club protests, the 2022 World Cup is now being organized by Argentina instead of Qatar." Even though I don't think FM should get involved in politics, it's a nice addition to the game.

  7. I only played about a dozen games so far so my feedback is really my first impressions. I'm managing Belgium and I'm trying to win the World Cup. I love the ME! The players play the way you assign them roles to and it's running quite smoothly. If there would be 1 comment that I have, it would be that I have seen a lot of penalties stopped by the GK. In the 10 games I played, 5 penalties were stopped while 3 got scored. I'll assess it as I go further in the career before reporting it as a bug. The pinnacle was the GK from Andorra stopping a penalty from Hazard. Further I got a couple of graphical items that bug me, but are not a deal breaker. When a player runs with the ball, he seems to have his head looking downwards. I would assume they would look around for opportunities. Manager is a nice addition, but face creator lacking, not using it anyway so don't really care. On the player screen, if the player has an injury or any other notification, a bubble (inj, wnt, etc) in front of the nationality appears. I find that annoying as I prefer to see the nationality. Also, can you change your kit design when you create a club in beta? I tried it but could only do colours. Otherwise, no major concerns yet. Well done SI, looking great so far.
  8. Personally, I couldn't get excited about FM15 and I don't think I will for FM16 either. Steam says I clocked 2022 hours for FM14, 401 for FM15 while my average is around 1200 per version. I'm an older gamer as well and I believe it's harder for SI to offer "new" items that would interest people that started off in the Champ Man days. The only items I could potentially enjoy are the Fantasy Draft, Set Piece Creator and Prozone analysis. The overall graphics keep improving, however the players looks more and more fake as I find their arms are too far away from their body and the elbows look too high. It kinda reminds me of Monthy Python. Or a digital game of subbuteo:

    In all honesty, if countries can't put their differences aside during a major sporting event, then they don't belong at the event.

    I never had the message appear in my inbox, but there is an agent called Dad and he used to have a player called Wisdom, and the message in my inblox would have been: "Dad offers Wisdom"

    Winsford United FC Season 2041-2042 END SEASON UPDATE Northern Premier League Division One North There wasn't much change in the second half of the season. Injury levels were low, performance was good and first league standing was never threatened. We cruised to league victory, 5 games before the end of the season. It's kinda fun to be the strongest team in the league but the challenge is also lesser. Either way, it means we'll get to the top flight sooner than expected and probably with more dough available than I had at Fisher. Speaking of Fisher, they seem to still be in financial trouble but they have stabilized and seem comfortable in the Conference Premier League. Can't wait to play them one day with Winsford Utd. The Cup performances were not that notable. The furthest we got is in the FA Trophy where we got knocked out by Staines Town (Conference South) after penalties in the Third Qualifying Round.

    I have no doubt we'll get up a few more divisions back to back considering I can buy some good players already
