  1. Currently into the 28/29 season and we've had a few runs in Europe, however the players arrive back from holiday with poor condition and despite having a week of training (or in my case days off, as I give the players time to try recover) their condition is awful thus making Europa damn near impossible to actually be competitive. This to me seem's like a bug, but I'm not 100% sure so thought I would post it here. Any info on this would be great!
  2. Understandable, it seems a little over the top. If I could be bothered to go through all my tweets I would look for it. BUT, going through that many tweets is just not worth the time.
  3. I asked Miles about this about 3/4 years ago. He told me that if people don't like his (or his teams) decisions then they should "go make their own game". This has become a running joke among my FM friends.
  4. Fair enough, was just finding it really annoying I suppose. As for Anita, good to see he is set at, at least 17. Was just suggesting it based on how he has done so far this season.
  5. Great job once again Michael! Some things to consider when updating next. These are of course only suggestions. Tiote - does he really take a lot of shots from distance, I've noticed him taking a lot in game (4/5 a game) and can't help but think he's taking a little too many due to the trait. Anita - Would consider bumping his ability to play RB to 17/18 considering he seems to be the first choice RB at the moment. He has played a couple games at LB, but don't think that needs changing just yet.
  6. Unlikely, from past experience the Database is closed/locked/ a couple weeks/month before the beta release. There is the chance they release a hotfix for something like that, but that'll be a minor update and require a fresh start.
  7. I realise playing the Beta is early access, but my point is that why change the game so much from the beta to the final version particularly with the "main" part of the whole game, the ME. They claim minor changes are made, but really it's typical of game developers. You can't really believe them. I blame SI for sticking to the usual, releasing a bugger version on the ME which then changes quite a lot when the final version is release 2 weeks later. Yes we have a Beta release to get rid of bugs, but then what's teh point of releasing the game to countless professionals who are unlikely (if they do then good on them) critique the game in a beneficial manner. The fact that for the last couple of versions I have taken Newcastle in the first season and finished in the top 6 without buying players (at least at the start as I start without transfer budgets). They have an entire year to work on getting the ME into a stable enough condition for release, they might want to take a look at how they go about it... In the end, people will keep throwing money at what is, and will be for a long time, an awesome simulation game. So it's unlikely they will change the way they do anything, ever. Thus, it will remain a game with a poor ME.
  8. Why does the ME feel completely different to that of the BETA, yes I expect changes but not a complete nerfing of your team. This has happened the last two FMs, completely destroying tactics and ultimately ruining current games. Honestly, why I'm surprised is beyong me. It's the kind of stunt Miles and his team would pull.
  9. Forgive me if this has been spoken about, but 29 pages worth of suggestions is a little too much to go through. I posted this in a thread that can be found here Basically, I think SI need to consider changing the way this works. My thinking is this. On squad selection day, there is also a drop down menu to select who will captain the squad during the friendlies or competition. Now, if the current squad captain is not in the squad, for whatever reason, there should be an additional box indicating that he is the normal captain. If you change that you change the permanent captain, or you could add a new captain for the up coming games. It would really save us the players the problems of dealing with players who become happy without reason. It would also, in theory, stop the main captain from commenting on events that he is not involved in. Hope to see some sort of change. Schmidy
  10. Hey All, One of my pet hates about FM is the team talks, winning a game 5-2 is normally seen as a good thing. However, when your defence decide to play like absolute idiots you should be able to take the team talk further than what you can. For example, I'd like to have stages in team talks rather than just 1 final team talk. "Well done on the win lads" - everyone get's happy "However, we need to tighten up. We should not have conceded those 2 goals" Basically all I'm given is an option to praise the players that I don't particularly want to praise, and the option to annoy them by given talks to each positional play. Hope we can see this implemented sooner rather than later, and that I'm not told to go make my own game again...
  11. Sorted my problem, GreenMan Gaming didn't send me my second activation code so I had to go and get it myself
  12. Having a problem getting the editor... I've tried pretty much all I know (apart from uninstalling), checked game cache and restarted... I want to avoid uninstalling as my internet connection is slower than Rivaldo in FM14
  13. Is that the entire list? Disappointed at not seeing South Africa on there. Still, there are some top leagues on there. Great work!
  14. Go onto the Steam website and have a look to see if you can change your e-mail
  15. I'll play as Newcastle as I support them. That will last no more than 2 seasons and then I'll start my mandatory Journeyman Game which starts in South Africa (because that's where I'm from )
