Pyro in FM

25 posts in this topic

Just noticed the existence of flares being used in FM. Anyone from SI who can say what determines which teams' supporters do this? Supporter passion?

I've had that a few times seems to be only against Italian teams so far I haven't noticed any other country's supporter do that.

Does it add to the game????

One of the most not needed features but a nice touch I admit. Unless it took them an awful amount of time to implement instead of fixing sth else.

Just turn off the graphics if it upsets you. What a pointless moan :rolleyes:

a) it doesn't upset me just asking....

b) why do you respond to a pointless moan with another pointless moan?

Great addition imo. Just eager to know what decides when and by whom it happens.

we might even see a club being fined in the future where prohibited...

Was also in the Australia vs Sth Korea match international friendly in Aussie, so will be interesting what the setting are for it to appear, as i dont recall ever seeing flares in this part of the world during football matches.

You obviously haven`t seen any Melbourne Victory home games, or any Victorian League games.......flares all the time, but this is down to the Greeks and Macedonians mainly.

I got my lower league club side promoted to the premier league and on the opening game of the season in my brand new stadium, i spotted a flare and have seen it happen twice now in different games.

For that added touch multiple flares with the appropriate pall of smoke engulfing an area of the stadium/pitch should be introduced.

I only saw it when I played in South America and in Central America.

It's very common all over Europe, but to single out Macedonia? Do they even have a league? By all means I'm sure they're used there as well, but to mention them instead of so many other countries doesn't make sense.

He's talking about the Greek and Macedonian ethnic groups in Melbourne, which are quite substantial.

And of course Macedonia has a football league.

I had one when I was playing Besiktas in the Europa League. At first I thought the stadium had caught fire, then I realised what it was and shouted for my housemate to come have a look. I personally think it's a cracking touch!

I have now seen it loads of times in Europe, I would love it if something happened like maybe a small riot with groups of fans scrapping and throwing flares onto the pitch, and then the team getting fined or supporters being banned would be a nice touch.

I played a Europa League match against Olympiakos a couple days ago, and saw flares three different times during the match.

It was mentioned in the blogs leading up to release that they were adding supporter types with different loyalty ratings this year. Don't know ins and outs of the system, but it would seem that the most passionate supporter type has the flares.
