Marking a position is good -- I have suffered a bit when the AI changes the formation and, immediately ,my right back goes to man mark the opposing center/right mid :[

Have they removed Brexit from the game? The feature served its purpose last year generating publicity, it should be removed now.

Noticed on the mark specific position screenshot that there is an option for PI to "Aim Crosses At"...

It's not just me, that's new right?

No, it has still happened IRL and is still in the game.

Could this mean that we can change the mentality, with intercalar levels?

I doubt that. its just that same Bar we have previously. Just showing a bit more of info so we can how much calculate and understand the % of mentality is for the player instead of Guess work.

could have 20 bars as 11 of them are Empty.

I think it's only for clearer visual representation

If we could change it than duties would become pointless

Not sure if this is where I should post this; if mistaken, forgive me.

I purchased FM2018 yesterday from Steam. It appears in my Library but there doesn't seem to be any (obvious) way to install the game.

Am I jumping the gun here? Will I be advised when I can install the game at a later date?

You can't install FM18 right now because there's nothing to install. Wait until SI announce that the beta has been released (in all likelihood, either tomorrow or Friday).

You can't install it yet. You'll be able to do it once the beta goes live, which is either tomorrow or Friday.

When beta is released there should be an install icon onthe page in your library

So on Steam it's 54,99 euros, is that with the discount or not. I do have FM17 of course.

I think you could have bought it with the discount before the 9th of october (not sure) but you would have needed to open FM17 and click on the FM18 Pre-Order Thingy

This is one of the worst features to ever be in the game, in my opinion. Until we know for sure how it will affect football in real-life, a random prediction of the outcome has no place in FM. Luckily, it's really easy to turn off in the pre-game editor, as it would totally ruin a save for me, if I suddenly needed work permits for EU players. It totally goes against the usual S.I mantra of 'when it happens in real life, we'll put it in the game', which I see a lot on here. It should of course be in the game if and when the rules on EU players change in real-life, which they haven't.

This is exactly why it should have been removed, I agree wholeheartedly. I never knew I could turn it off, so i'll do that for FM18.

As Reflections 86 said, this feature is unnecessary. It was a publicity stunt, and it no longer serves any purpose.

If a country like Sweden would go through its own #swexit, would it also be reflected into FM?

Somehow I think it wouldn't.

I also love how divisive it is, good addition to the game. 

But for the fact it wasn't implemented properly for certain outcomes under spl squad selection rules. Doubt that will have changed.

Don't moan at SI for the Brexit situation. Blame whoever you know that voted for it. If you want realism, you've got it. Every club is sweating over it right now.  

The most realistic outcome until a deal is struck is "Hard Brexit" which basically means that all non-UK players will need work permits. While there's likely to be a continuation of existing terms for non-UK, EU players under existing contracts, Hard Brexit could, in the worst case scenario, mean repatriation of anyone not in possession of UK Residency. Let that sink in and then apply it to your own club's squad. I'll be surprised if FM2018 includes that extreme option thankfully.

i remember reading just after the vote that, regards Brexit, the government and the EU would look to make football, and maybe other sports, an exception, regarding nationality rules. I'm sure the clubs themselves will be lobbying hard for something along these lines, and i wouldn't doubt that they would get it. Where big money is involved, there is usually a way around most things.

But you know that its not a EU agreement, but a Shengen Space agreement, or Shengen Visa.

 

Countries outside UE have it and so, players from those countries are not consider foreign, like Norway, Swiss and Iceland.

 

So, the UK can leave UE and still be in the Shengen Space, so no need for work permits, although i think that will not happen.

Theresa May already said that the rule will only be applied for those that enter after the conclusion of Brexit and not for those that are inside already. If they where repatriated, the UK economy would collapse in months.

Or maybe, just maybe, your theory about it being a publicity stunt was wrong? You can't go around making rude comments about other people's motivations for a feature and then complain at getting the same back. Can't take it, don't give it.

The issue being, of course, that Theresa May may or may not be Prime Minister for much longer, but in any case is certainly a liar. What she says is not necessarily the same as what will happen. While the immediate repatriation of EU citizens is indeed extremely unlikely, them being made to apply for work permits which they may or may not receive most certainly isn't.

Well, just pre edit the damn thing or do it after in the ingame editor.

 

Easy both ways.

 

And then it hit me: Does it means that coaches can also be repatriated?

Theoretically, I guess so. But right now the work permit system for coaches and other professional football staff is extremely lenient - if they're paid I think it's around £550 per week or more they get a permit wherever they're from. It's so irrelevant that it's not actually in the game, applying that to EU nationals too would make very little difference.

I bought FM18 2 days ago on the IOS Steam app, I know the discount ended a while ago so that’s no issue, just wondering if I’m eligible for the Beta, does anyone know if it matters whether I buy from App or from Steam client on Windows? Cheers 👍

Steam and Sega plus some other retailers are offering beta access. Does not matter which OS.

No it won't because duties will always have their core traits no matter how adjusted the individual mentality is.

The game is 'released' on the 10th November, they have plenty of time. The beta is only for those who have already pre-ordered it.

Everyone knows that the videos will be released before the beta, not just before the 10th November.
