All, New FM features look great and all but I can't help but notice not even 1 new network game feature? I've searched for a thread about the future of the online career and couldn't find one, if there is one feel free to just post this thread into there (Mod). Every game on the planet has looked into ways to delve into the online multiplayer scene and FM has been doing it for a long time but honestly I'm not even sure if there is a dedicated online multiplayer development team in SI. Some of the bugs we've had to endure on release of FM have reoccurred for 5 or 6 versions now, it's actually embarrassing. In my opinion this is the most exciting mode on the game and it is being criminally overlooked. There are no special online features for the network, the most interesting thing you can do is attach a note to your friend on the back of a transfer offer, it's ridiculous. There so many unique situations that occur in a network game that SI could easily address with some ingenuity. There's a lot I want to write but the crux of it is: can anybody from SI let us know if there's any real attention being paid to the network aspect of this game? Recurring Bugs: Changing results after pressing continue Human vs Human matches crashing Matches crashing when Human spectates another Human match Transfers by far in a way is the most overlooked aspect of the network games. You can easily break the transfer system on the game in a network game. Example 1, if there's a player you don't want anybody else to buy, but you actually don't have the transfer budget to buy him yourself, you can go in for the transfer, offer a huge unrealistic contract and he will accept you every time. Keep doing this till transfer deadline. Another example, say I have £100m and a player is listed for £40m. I, player A, anticipating my competitor will bid £40m, bid £60m to try to gain some exclusivity. The AI of course accepts both bids - totally unrealistic. There are so many opportunities for improvement, I'd do away with all the new features if they would just put some extra effort into Online Career mode.
