  1. How can we improve the network game of FM?

    This year I was hoping for a better online experience, but the same issues are still there: -Speed! Or rather, the lack of. This is due to several things: -- Amount of news -- The game stops several times a day -- UI lag. It takes several seconds to change screens due to the amount of data being sent from the server. - Dedicated servers! This would be great to
  2. I would not be surprised if those changes had some unintended effect on other things during the match because I used to play a pretty standard 4-4-2 on all my saves and was doing good, and that tactic started to perform really bad on all my saves after the patch. Coincidence?
  3. If nothing has changed then I'm Djengis Kahn. I went from Serie A winners to relegation battle after the patch and so did my mate. On my Liverpool save I am also struggling after winning the premiership the season before. Something is not right.
  4. Network Game

    If you are on different LANs I would suggest using Hamachi to avoid firewall issues.
  5. A much improved network game! This can be done by: - A less laggy UI. Waiting 2-10 seconds every time you click on a player\team\anything really is very annoying. I suspect this is due to the clients having to ask the server for info every time you click on something. Why can't the client have their own database stored locally and just updated every time something changes (this could be done in the background). Which brings me to my next point: - Less clicks per day. Why do we need to click continue 5+ times a day? One "continue" a day would suffice for most non-match days. - The ability to search for players\staff or do anything else while on holiday. The game could go on in the background while I could look at players etc.(but not interact with them in any way).

    I have also always had slow games. What annoys me is that it is the UI that is slow! Does the came contact the server every time I click something? It should be possible to just have the server update the local database each time we click continue and not contact the server every time you click a new player. And even if it contacts the server each time you click something it is just a database look-up, and with a 20/2 Mbit/s line it shouldn't take 3-4 sec. Please fix this! But I still play online because it is so much fun to beat your mates
  7. You are not alone. I have the same issue.
  8. I have noticed the following issues: - Still to many offsides after corners - Easy to score from corners (Daniel Agger is my top scorer with standard corner setup) - Scoring from headers after a cross from the wing happens very rarely even with a tall TM and cross aim TM - Scoring from direct free kicks happens very rarely
  9. Yes, it is far too easy to buy £50-100M worth of players in one window. And the board did not take this in to account in FM11, you would still get a huge transfer budget the next year, even if you were loosing money each month. I was hoping it would be fixed this year, but it does not seem so.
  10. Just played a couple of months: Positives: - Team talk seems better - Player page has all important info on one page Negatives: - Still too easy to score from corners? My DC scored a hat-trick and is my top scorer. I haven't done any changes to the corner tactic. - Offside after corner. This was something I noticed in FM11 as well: the corner taker is almost always in an offside position after taking the corner. It is a bit stupid that he does it several times a game.
  11. I really hope you improve the transfer system as that is one of the most important aspects of the game. Network gaming should also be improved as the interface is really laggy even with an excellent connection.
  12. Thanks for the patch. Seems that you have fixed most of the issues I have had problems with. I couldn't see in the patch notes that you have fixed the issue regarding few goals scored from direct free kicks. Have I just missed it or has it still not been fixed? Anyway, I am going to test the game now.
  13. I don't know. It seems that it is caused by bad free kick takers, because my free kicks are both saved and going wide\over\in the wall.
