Football Manager Touch 2017 Feedback Thread

183 posts in this topic

With the pre-release out, I've now closed the 2016 thread and opened a new one for the 2017 version. 

iOS and Android versions to come on full release. Whether you are playing this on Windows, Mac or Linux on your PC, or Tablet when it arrives, please let us know your feedback.

We hope you enjoy it.

Abit disappointed that there are no changes to the league rules of MLS or A-league that make them abit unique to manage in. I could sign more than 5 foreign players in the A-league and every club is loaning whoever they can get in MLS.

Hi Lucas

I was wondering if there is a confirmed date as yet, as some say 17th Nov and others say 4th Nov?

This happened to me also, in the CL playoff draw.

With regards to individual training, is there an option to select all instead of trying to check on every player box(or having a popup message) that I want to take charge of their individual training?

Hi all. I have just purchased the Touch only version of the game, hoping to download and play the beta on my iPad. Is it possible to do this yet - if not - when will it be available and how do i download it for the iPad? Thank you.

Has the way tutoring is implemented be changed at all - here's hoping

Pity we still are unable to view anything beyond the basic stats for players in squad views (eg NO interceptions, header % etc). If its the same ME why are these available?

There wouldn't be a beta for the tablet version or the PC version of FMT. SI only release a beta for the full game of FM. In regards to when it comes out for the tablet it is widely reported to be 4th Nov, and this should be available on your app store.

When the game becomes available on the app store I would imagine that it will cost something in the region of £14-£16. I am assuming from your question that you have pre-order the PC version of FMT17 thinking that it could also be used on the tablet? If so, my advise would be to get a refund and wait for 4th Nov for it to appear on the app store.

The issue with the tablet stores is that Apple has a submission process, so can't confirm for absolute definite.

There is already a pre release beta for the PC version. It's available now.

I made a request for this last year. Maybe we need more people to make this request for this to happen. I don't think it's too difficult to include this since it's already calculated.

So...

1) Can we play with more then 3 leagues (IOS/Android version)? No

2) Editor available? No

3) Can we select who acts as a tutor to? No

So basically my 3 top requests for FMT17 didn't happen.

Conclusion...

I will buy the game, i will play it a lot, i will love it, i will enjoy it... but i'll be a sad sad sad man! :):(:):(:):(:):(:)

Thanks.

Can we compare two players regardless of position? For example, can I compare a LB to a ST?

Always been a pet peeve of mine as I regularly retrain players to other positions.

No unless the player at least has a rating on that position.

Now that FM Touch is a separate Steam install, it's not possible to change the player attribute colour thresholds.

Previously, the changes to the full FM thresholds were honoured in FM Classic/Touch. Is there a workaround for this? It just seems like the option is hidden in the Interface settings.

The decision to add an extra click in order to remove opposition instructions is absolutely infuriating. Can we just get the option to turn off automatic opposition instructions?

This happened to me 3 times already on June 20th 2017 when trying to get to the second season in Liga II in Romania.

Any ideas or advice?

Enjoying the game so far guys, really pleased with it and just wanted to say thank you very much for your hard work. I've also got a few ideas that I'll post separately but, as far as feedback goes I'm all positive at the moment.

Did someone forgot to remove tactic familiarity from FMT? :D

I promised a player when signing that I would develop him. Where can I see that promise and whether it was achieved?

You can't. There's never been a promises panel in FMT.

I wish that FM17 could be just for my macbook and FMT17 for my ipad, seems a bit awkward to have 2 FM on the same Mac...the FMT isn't even available yet for iPad ;[

Is there any difference at all between fmt17 on pc and ipad?

I don't know about FMT 17 (isn't released on tablets yet), but I'm pretty sure that, like for FMT16:

1. Maximum 3 countries on tablet, while on PC you can tick "remove restrictions" check box and play with more leagues

2. Detailed past statistics for players/clubs/past meetings/etc. isn't available (disk space limitations) - only current season.

3. No editor on tablet

4. No "assistant arranges friendlies" feature (but may be this is the same case on PC)

The list is not complete for sure, just a couple of things came in mind

But, for me, the FMT on tablet is far more convenient way to play FM, so I don't care about all the above too much...

It isn't a thing and it's a known issue.

Because when your assistant gives you his monthly training report you can see tactic familiarity.

I actually really like the Social Media stuff. I had ignored it up until now but it's a good addition to the game that only hinders the streamlined experience of Touch if you let yourself be distracted by it.

Really bad luck or a bug? Within minutes Mitrovic injured. 10 min later Gayle. And throughout the game another 4? Lazaar, Ritchie, Diame, and Atsu.

Bad luck. A bug is something that repeats again and again. That's one match with a hell of a lot of bad luck.

Still won 2-0 but ended up with 8 men on the pitch. Unfrotunately, half of them have long term injuries and are out for months.

Is that the plan of how it's going to stay?

I've a player who is unhappy that I broke a promise to him, fairly sure I removed them all at the start of negotiations but I have no idea what he was expecting of me now, rolling back through saves doesn't help when the information isn't shown anywhere.

You'll need to use the wishlist thread if you want new features / screens in FMT.

Thanks
