  1. What? The AI wasn´t brought up by me. This was another poster. But I would like to hear statements about the long-terms plans in regards of the graphic/match engine and if a stadium editor is something they look into or are even working on it. So this makes me an ignorant idiot?
  2. Since the AI is often criticized, why don´t you make the effort and provide a one-time statement explaining the complexity of this issue? In the future, whenever this comes up again, the mods could refer to this. The same applies to other common issues like the state of the graphic and match engine and something like a stadium editor, which was heavily discussed prior the release. Sorry, but a lot of the frustration is caused by poor communication on your end. In my opinion, it shouldn´t be like this. In the end, you are expecting your customers to pay, more or less, for a yearly update. So at least they should know where are you heading.
  3. Then why is it that we haven´t seen any longer match engine footage, yet? Again, iirc, in the past this was always released along with the new features list. Just in my opinion, they can´t be thrilled about it. Otherwise, not much sense holding it back.
  4. Following this logic, why do they mention the new skin then? Was there ever a version the last years when they didn´t change it? Sorry, obviously you are just protecting SI, no matter what. So why they don´t mention the changes? Should I just trust them, especially since last years version was a big step backwards? Iirc, before they improved the match engine in every update. Recently, no changes in the winter update. From my perspective, this looks like they keep them until autumn and call it a new version.
  5. I didn´t write it´s THE new feature. But it was the first new feature of their presentation. Just mentioning a new skin as feature at all is preposterous. They change it every year and every year the community does a better job. So far, I haven´t read anything about match engine improvements. It´s either there are none or something with SI´s emphasis is completely wrong.
  6. A more balanced view wouldn´t hurt you either... There are very few "new feature addicts" here. And if the use of "Fanboys" is banned, this term should be as well. Apart from that, it was SI who set the emphasis by naming the new skin their No.1 feature. What a marketing disaster. Personally, I don´t need any new features. Just major improvements of the match engine would be sufficient. Again, this doesn´t necessarily include graphics.
  7. What other football manager games are out there? Apart from that, IMO, Fifa displays the aspects I mentioned, different skill levels, much better. In regards of long-term playability, others already mentioned it, it´s also time to develop a more dynamic ability system. The current one doesn´t reflect real life career developments and it gets so boring after a while. Even a cheap browser game like Basketball GM does a much better job. It actually takes all it´s excitement out of it.
  8. To develop the match engine into something that at least closely resembles to football. This means that different skill levels of individual players and teams are actually visible on match day. All you guys do you think that´s the case at the moment, or are you playing text only? I´m puzzled about the hype in regards of the tactical overhaul when nothing of these fancy new setting will be displayed in the match engine. Again, I´m fine with the current graphical quality. It´s just that the engine is a complete failure. Also, a stadium editor would have added at least some variation to the match day experience.
  9. Since we now have a general feedback thread, I will repeat my post from another thread. I don´t like the direction the development is heading. SI creates a huge merchandise drama and then the first new feature they celebrate is a new Skin. THEY set the emphasis. Sorry, this is no improvement! The community creates much better skins for already a decade. It´s a feature that gives uncritical buyers an illusion something has changed. Again, as long as the world cup final still looks the same like a non-league game the match engine is a failure. This is what they should be working on. I also don´t understand why they don´t add a stadium editor. Then the community would do the majority of the work for them. This would significantly improve the match day experience. I´m turned off by their communication and self-celebration. At least, they could be honest and switch to a system of yearly licenses. I would gladly pay the same price. But I would´t feel like they are trying to take me for an idiot any longer.
  10. Oh, I think i can about the direction they are heading. SI creates this huge merchandise drama and then the first new feature they celebrate is a new Skin. THEY set the emphasis. Sorry, this is no improvement! The community creates much better skins for already a decade. It´s a feature that gives uncritical buyers an illusion something has changed. Again, as long as the world cup final still looks the same like a non-league game the match engine is a failure. This is what they should be working on. I´m turned off by their communication and self-celebration. At least, they could be honest and switch to a system of yearly licenses. I would gladly pay the same price. But I would´t feel like they are trying to take me for an idiot any longer.
  11. I don´t buy individual features. I buy a game. Therefore, I would prefer discussing the game as a whole
  12. As long as the world cup final still looks the same like a non-league game the match engine is a failure. It seems changing this doesn´t have any priority for SI or they are incapable of doing so.
  13. You don´t seem to get that the big tactical overhaul is just a potemkin village as long as the match engine isn´t capable of displaying it.
  14. That´s exactly the point. The match engine is way too bad that it could display any sophisticated tactics. Again, it´s not mainly about the quality of the animations. So the tactical overhaul is completely pointless.
  15. Who cares about new looks, changes in training and tactics? They do this every year without any noticeable concept. Often it wasn´t even an improvement. But in regards of the the matchday experience - nothing! I wonder if this will ever look like a real football game. This doesn´t mean it has to look like Fifa. So these are the big new features? It´s preposterous calling this a new version of a game. It´s barely an update.
