I was of the understanding because we did research we receive a free copy of the game and the activiation code would be sent via yourselves.

You should have received an email from Pete, as part of the group. If you requested a boxed copy, you'll get it in the next few days and the Beta will activate.

"If you asked for a digital code then you will be able to get the pre-release beta as soon as you receive the code in your email inbox (assuming that the pre-release beta has been made available, by then). If you ordered a boxed copy then you will have access to that beta when you actually have the boxed copy in your hands, so as to be able to use the code within (again, assuming that the pre-release beta has been made available)."

Is it no longer possible to start the game one year away? IE Sweden February 2015 for example. I can only choose Sweden February 2014. There´s also Finland December 2013.

It seems like menu loading times (to preferences, to begin a new game) have increased dramatically, or is it just me?

More of a question, are network games possible on the pre-release beta?

No Network Games on the Pre Release Beta I'm afraid.

That might just be the first time you boot the game.

Oh wow, actually every single player is named randomly, they seem like Arabic names. I didn't check "Use Fake Player" at startup. Trying to create a new game

Still wondering about the start date thing, though.

Game play is good for me so far, but just one minor thing I've noticed with a player position Patrick Cox of Hayes and Yeading is listed as central defender where as in real life he is a striker.

Seems like I'm just gonna slide Adaptability down to 1 in every non-journeyman save I run.

Might holiday through a couple seasons soon just to get a peek at regens/AI squad development.

Saving takes an age for some reason. Where is the option to not compress saves?
We haven't had that option for a while now. It wasn't in FM14 either.

I'm pretty sure it was. Even if it wasn't, the time it takes to save the game is at least double for me what it was in FM14. Kind of makes me want to turn my usual fortnightly autosave off.

First Impression: I don't like the new Premier League club badges. Why do Man Utd have 4 stars, and why is it the same as Sunderland and Arsenal? Why do Liverpool have a crown? The ones from last year were miles better. These ones do not make any sense, especially when half of them are the same! Obviously this is one of the first things you see when you pick a Premier League team. I appreciate you don't have the license for the official badges, but I never had an issue with the shields that were used previously. I will have to download some badges this year if these default monstrosities remain.

However, looking at the rest of the skin the side bar is a good addition. Everything seems to be nicely set out and easy enough to find. It did take me a few clicks to realise the player search was now in the scouting tab, but that's a perfectly understandable place to put it.

So far so good.

The private chat tab is gone from the interaction tab. It only appears after I've asked someone to tutor from the younger players' training screen
