The keeper spilling a free kick right to an oppositon player is still happening all too frequently

One thing i'd love to see, in addition to the player roles on the pitch (Well done on this) is just a little average rating below the role, like in fm14

Still too many iffy long range goals from players who simply shouldn't be even trying it.

Is there a quick way to switch between fullscreen FM and windowed mode on the Mac?

People, there are still going to be crosses, corners, goalkeeping errors, high scores, and long range goals. The update hasn't completely nerfed them. Do a whole season, then come back and report how frequent these things are, not just your last game, that helps nobody.

Have you experimented with more physically assertive Roles in midfield? Unless instructed otherwise at a Team or Player level, none of that trio are really the "roll your sleeves up and kick somebody" sort of player.

Try a ball winning mid

Have any tweaks been made to coaching courses/badges?

This... I really hope that I can actually get my next coaching license now. Will try it as soon as I get home.

Is there an option to know where my coachs improved when they get there coaching qualifications? If not, I think it would be useful

Hotfix was pointless in my opinion. You fixed the saving a game issue which was good. The match engine still has a lot of problems and I'm yet to notice the tweaks that have occurred. Goalkeepers reactions are still too slow, their movement is too robust. Crosses are still a problem. I am watching my team defend a cross or a set piece and I'm seeing defenders let attackers get easy headers in. I'm even seeing defenders let the ball pass them.

I tried to upload some footage but there's something wrong with the FM Youtube Uploader, the footage doesn't show anything, just the pitch.

Man marking on set pieces is a problem. Defenders are marking attackers and they're still able to volley the ball. I understand a header but how is it possible to volley a ball when a defender is marking you tightly?

Defenders are reacting too slow in the box and after making a tackle. Sometimes defenders are not even reacting to the ball when it goes past them. If the uploader was working you would see the footage.

The whole point of a hotfix is to address specific problems. You guys said you improved defender reactions to crosses and corners but they still react slowly in other situations. Goalkeepers are still dreadful.

Anyone noticed massive player rating losses since the update? I was going really well before updating(beginning of November - 2nd season). Installed update and restarted FM15 & lost my first 2 games. Looked into my tactics / training etc. and noticed that John Terry was down to 2 stars(he was only 2 and a half to start with though), Zouma had gone from 3 to 2, but worst of all were Sami Khedira and Leighton Baines who dropped from 4 each to 2&ahalf / 3 respectively. Carried on just trying to survive til the transfer window but no matter what I did tactically I lost all my games until the 7th in a row which cost me my job.

I know blips happen but that seemed a bit extreme, and the timing made it very fishy.

I really like it.

However, my player had a long shot that the keeper threw in, but the really bizarre thing was that the game decided to replay the goal in 3d. Only that goal. I play 2d classic and have replays on 2d classic.

weird

When will you understand? those stars are the opinions of your staff and have no effect whatsoever on your players abilities or performances.

It's like me saying Messi isn't as good as people say meaning he misses 5 open goals in his next match, it isn't rocket science.

Having said that, nothing has changed in my game so I suggest give it a while to settle then report a bug if it doesn't but that does mean a bug in the star rating system, not in your players abilities.

Not trying to be funny but this is what I have been doing since the beta and my problems aren't being fixed.

Played a few games and saw that pressing/closing down is still not addressed, defenders are still backpeddling/sitting back even when given high closing down and marking instructions and not attempting to challenge while the opposition run at them. Feeling rather disappointed. This is a core deficiency of the match engine that needs to be remedied ASAP. Guess I'll have to wait for the next update again.

Not everything gets fixed immediately. Incredibly unrealistic to expect that.

I understand that, but those had been steady for a season and (almost) a half before then. Baines dropped from upper 7 ratings in games to an average of around 6 for the 4 games I stuck with him after the update. Can't remember what the others dropped to so I wont include them. Just thought it was weird how the sudden drop(stars and match ratings) for a lot of players happened directly after installing this update. Although I now realise I forgot to included the ratings drop in my original post ha

The ME feels, well...flimsy, thats the only way I can describe it

Although I can see the patch has adjusted (improved?) some dynamics of the match engine, it's only skimmed it.

I'm not a game coder (although my brother is), and I appreciate the hard work and hours that are being put in.

Roll on 15.1.5 :thup:

No-one ever does brawla ..

This one was a hotfix .. i.e a small unannounced tweak.. there might be more like this, there might not.

Usually it's safe to expect a large main update in January after the window.

Okay, fair enough. That's a shame though because from the space of November to March/April we're waiting on the next update. But we should really be enjoying the game in these months. I've had this since the Beta release and I'm just constantly waiting on the next update to see if I can finally enjoy the match engine. It shouldn't be like this every year.

Perhaps lower your expectations then. I've sunk almost 300 hours into the game so far, and I've had very few issues with the match engine. But then I simply play the game to enjoy it, and not to pick holes in every little inaccuracy. What a dreadful waste of time that would be.

And anyway, it's the non-match stuff that's been mostly bugged this year IMO.

Yeh but don't forget an awful lot of us are enjoying the match engine (and numerous other things) your preferences don't get to over ride every body elses ;)

Also it's very SI like to come up with a Christmas surprise if it's possible so don't go all doom and gloom yet.

Not sure why my subs morale should drop from OK to abysmal when as Eastleigh I'm losing a pre-season friendly 3-2 to West Ham.

Agree closing down is awful and player reactions are so slow. Really cannot understand how closing down has been poor for so many versions and still hasn't been addressed. Full backs aren't getting anywhere near blocking a cross, ball goes to winger, full back goes to engage and seemingly slips on a patch of ice and skids past the winger and the winger crosses to Lukaku who has the freedom of the penalty area!! Reactions are painful, some of my players turn slower than the Titanic! Early days as only played the odd match but not incredibly positive so far.

Also and it was admitted in the bugs forum that there was an issue. If you change instructions of a tactic mid game you still cannot revert to your starting tactic on he drop down menu. I hoped that this would have been in the hotfix.

I've almost got 300 hours too. I didn't have many match engine issues until now besides the obvious defending crosses and so on. I think the non-match stuff is worst this year too but I think that can be easily fixed compared to the engine. It's just hard for me to certain problems I guess.

This is a genuine question...

I've just played an away game in Europe and Monaco attempted 76 crosses. Seems high, no?

Relax :) play 50 matches (not on key or goals highlights) then I might be prepared to believe you ;)

This is where subjectivity kicks in - I'm absolutely flabbergasted that anyone could possibly consider that this ME is not a significant improvement over the previous one.

Feels much better now! Actually seems quite playable...

I've conceded 5 own goals in the past three games though. I hope this is just my team being very mistake-prone by putting too much dedication into blocks....

I guess I played on the old one so much, I just got used to the flaws.

That's my point - there are no "new" flaws. The ones that existed have been dramatically reduced, albeit not entirely eradicated yet in some instances.

Either way, thanks for taking the time to create the bug report you did :thup:

Am I right in thinking players roles weren't shown before? or is it something I've changed? :confused:
