Match Engine Update 13.2.1 - ME 1325 Constructive feedback here please

Recommended Posts

Im playing as Nueva Chicago in the Argie second division, a big game near the end of the season against Independiente Rivadavia. Ourselves in 3rd and them in 4th and bearing in mind 3 go up and the top 2 are 15 points clear, it’s a huge game for both of us.

A tight game, we go 1 up after 50 minutes only to be pegged back straight away to 1-1. In the 90th minute they clear a ball out of their box which my left back Lucas Banegas chases after under no pressure as it was only him and my keeper in our half of the pitch. He takes 2 or 3 touches so he’s level with the 18 yard box at which point he decides to VERY slowly roll the ball back to Jhonny Da Silva in goal. When the ball was half way back, inexplicably Jhonny Da Silva took this moment to make some sort of protest as he slumped to the floor and just sat there as the ball very, very slowly by now rolled ever closer to him. It had nearly stopped when it hit Jhonny’s back and gained a bit of momentum before very very slowly rolling onto the goal line where it appeared to stop (much to the relief of the Nueva Chicago dugout).

At this point Jhonny realised he was letting his team mates and manager down with this ill conceived sit down protest, unfortunately in trying to redeem himself he bolted upright, ran over to the ball and in doing so managed to knock it the 0.5mm needed to constitute a goal. He immediately held his head in his hands I noticed so I imagine he’s pretty cut up about it.

LOLZILLA! This made me proper belly laugh!

I think this sums up the flaws perfectly

I don't really see anything wrong with those goals... Sure they're not everyday goals, but they aren't bizarro own goals or anything.

I guess the defence seem unwilling to tackle players with good dribbling, which is an obvious problem, but the ME has more issues than just that.

Where do you guys aim your crosses because I get nothing but red on the heat map showing how mine failed!!! Previous patch I had some good success with big men up top using them as TM but I think it limits your play using a specialist role. Tried every aim on crosses to Carroll but even with wide men with crossing stats of 16 and 17 a cross rarely finds its target.

I think this sums up the flaws perfectly

1- First goal seems to me the reflect effect of known issue with the current ME. Players with good dribble capactiy can easily run from the midfield to the goal and score easy. I think that this will be fixed in the next patch, according to PaulC.

2- Second goal is a total fluke. In real life this kind of goals exist but they are very rare. IMO, in FM they happen to many times. I think this is related with a specific issue with the goalkeeper, because some times they seem to loose the perspective of where the ball is.

3- Third goal, is a great goal and i dont see anything wrong with it. Nani pick the ball by the line, cuts inside and scores a beauty! Be proud of that goal! :)

4- Fourth goal is another good goal! The 1-2 play between Redmond and Nani is really good. Perhaps the defense could close down a little bit better, but it's a great goal imo.

Typically with a poacher, drill and from deep.

This. Third and forth goal were great goals, third one is a bit uncommon but i wouldn't say it was something rare, it's a great goal especially if you check i reckon Nani has good composure, technic, finishing and long shots so nothing strange there.

The first goal is an ME issue that like Keyser said was already admitted and it should be fixed next patch, the second one, again the only thing wrong is how common they are as those are very rare goals due to the distance it's scored.

third goal has three guys in one spot watching the ball, the defender on 0:30 and 0:31 actively walking away from his marked player and somehow as well out of nani's way, to join the two other defenders. there's definitely somethring wrong with that.

fourth goal has players actively running away from nani and creating a channel. a huge hole like this with 9 players in the own half shouldn't happen with zonal marking, but is not entirely unrealistic, especially as the opponent is only osaka.

Okay, we very much appreciate all the feedback provided so far. However now internally we've moved on a few match engine versions so a lot of the stuff here is now unfortunately redundant so we're going to close this thread. If you have a major issue it may still be worth raising it within our match engine bugs forum (found HERE) just to make sure we're aware of it.

Changes made so far (in an unreleased version) can be found here - http://community.sigames.com/showthread.php/320432-Next-match-engine-update-fixes-so-far...(-updated-10th-January-)

Again we do understand frustrations which stem from people wanting the best representation of football possible and we're very much working as hard as we can towards that. Thanks.
