This is a project I have been tinkering with on-and-off for quite a while. After playing FM (and CM before it) over many years, I've become more and more interested in the game’s AI – its sophistication and limitations. After several years of creating various edited databases, I decided to create an entirely new set of clubs and their own league to play in, almost entirely divorced from the parameters of the real footballing world. Part of the motivation was to create a new league to play in for a bit of change, but it was also a way of seeing how the game would react to such a situation: woul
Apparently FM 2020 is just not going to be unable to get this one right. I have not played since the end of December until tonight, though I had been playing and actively giving feedback since beta day 1 till then. I'm 46 and have been playing this game since the very first release of CM and this one has been the most frustrating ME I can remember, maybe because you can see the next level of immersion just over the hill and out of reach. Here is an example of what I have been talking about. (I had to crop it down and record it playing in the media player to get it down from 4K to get

And goal from a break-away 63:09 very odd saving attempt by the goalie in 1on1. witch leads to goal 84:10 2 man pressing goalkeeper. See
So myself and 4 other friends run a fantasy draft online save but we use the pre-game editor to do it since it's just cleaner in our opinion. We realised that as a result of our draft some teams get absolutely demolished, to the point they no longer have a senior starting 11. As a solution to this, I proposed when we run our next save (which will be when FM19 comes out) we'll compensate the affected teams as fairly as we can. To make sure this worked I tested the theory on FM18. In our draft, Napoli is the worst affected team. So by our calculations, it would be fair to give them an extra 400m
