Football Manager 2018 Announcement

Are people really that desperate when anything earlier than 2 weeks before release is a bonus?

As for people quoting days old Miles tweets, just let it go. These will be the same people moaning 10 seconds after downloading the beta that it's full of bugs and that the new 3D graphics have ruined their life, lost them their job and made them physically unattractive to women. 

And some advice for FM19? Read the announcement regarding release, all of it. Then set expectations accordingly. 

Finally, I mentioned to Miles that I'd booked next week off, He responded that it was good timing. So if you're in any doubt, it will definitely be released by Monday.

 

We already know it will be released on Friday if not earlier. Why wouldn't we want it earlier, when it's been clearly said that it will come on Friday or earlier. And for the record, I am not one of those people who'll be moaning about bugs in beta, FFS.

Yeah it's exciting but why aren't people working out a system on FM17 to go straight into their new FM18 saves? That's what I am doing atm with Spurs since it's gonna be my first career in the new game.

It's a BETA you're supposed to report any bugs you encounter.

Reporting the bugs is not the same as moaning about them.

of course, not referring to the moaners who don't know what beta means.

the match engine will be different so any tactic on fm17 wont nec work on 18 

With a couple of minor adjustments it will if you're using a proper system that doesn't take advantage of any weaknesses in the ME.

I have Forza 7 ultimate edition (with early access) and it's utterly sh** :lol: FM beta never disappointed me (maybe a little bit the 2016) but I hope that won't be as bad as the new forza :D

Yes it will, because the principles are the same in every game edition.

I'm off work tomorrow and will be free to play FM until about 2pm. After that I can't play it until Sunday night.

So, get ready for it to be released at around 2pm tomorrow :D

I will be missing FM17...after fm12 my favourite!

But...as always...Betas never disappoint me. For example FM16 match engine was better in beta than in version .1 or .2, but it's just my opinion!

Only if you've created/downloaded a tactic that exploits a weakness in the match engine that would now be fixed. 

A strong tactic, based on logic will work on any edition of the game, providing you have the players to fit it, and can adapt it to cope with adversity.

true. If you base your tactic on your players' abilities, then you can have good "bridge" tactics from a FM version to another.

Sat in Loughborough London University right now, trying to focus on an assignment, but I need that fix. That first signing, that first gem, it's going to be beautiful.

Didn't I read somewhere that Loughborough London university has the fastest internet connection in Europe? At least you'll be able to download it quickly :D

Not necessarily even that as a sensible set up seems to work in the game rather well no matter if your players' attributes fit to the system. I have noticed that many times. 

But yes a sensible set-up is always going to be working no matter what the version is. I have for example used the same basics with Athletic Bilbao for maybe the last three FMs as the team is kept quite similar every year as they have the limitation to only sign Basque players.

The Basque thing is so strange, isnt Laporte French?

I think the Basque area goes into France or at least there are Basque people in France. I have heard of French Basque cyclists before when there was a all Basque professional cycling team.

Apparently Didier Deschamps is a French Basque, so I learnt something today

And so too is Bixente Lizarazu. Had no idea Deschamps was Basque, though.

If the beta is tomorrow, i can't understand why the promised match videos have not appeared.  I wouldn't have thought it makes any sense releasing them after the beta because people like loki-doki will be streaming the beta anyway

I just recieved an e mail from a danish retailer saying "gain access to the FM18 beta from 19.00 tonight (18.00 UK)". Most likely not true though

Miles hasn't tweeted for a while, and he did hint at the process being that he would decide, immediately let everyone at SI know, then call a meeting to discuss details of the announcement.  The optimistic part of my brain thinks he's having that meeting right this minute. :D

He just answered someone 1 minute ago, so unless he is tweeting in a meeting (zing!) then my guess is no....
