Is there any way to disable the ads? 2d is bad enough this year and I just can't deal with the flashing. Rest of the game is great but the changes to 2d were not needed and are a big backwards step

Everything looks unfamiliar having been finely tuned into FM 2017 but i'll get used to it as usual.

Not sure what i'm doing with pre-match tactics meeting, randomly selecting things to talk about, not sure how many things need to be discussed, just picking 1 at the moment, no rhyme or reason behind what needs to be discussed but won my first 3 games with Stockport County so must be doing something right?

There is an option to set the frequency of your scouting meetings, you can set this per amount of entries (anywhere between 10-100 )or by period of time (daily to monthly). The scouting meeting will be generated into the users inbox, from here there is a link to your Scouting Centre or to your Scouted players list where you can review all scouted players and have the same actions available as you would do on the Scouting Centre. 

Aye, but if I set this to daily, for example, I'm going to get bombarded every day with recommendation emails. I just want a notification that a scout report I have requested is available. No idea why this was taken away. At the moment, every time I click continue, I'm checking the scouting screen, as I'm in pre-season so requesting a lot of reports.

What background pack are you using to get the players appear on their own profile screen?

A lot of the options, particularly on the scouting centre and in contract negotiations look 'greyed out' as if you can't click them, but you can. 

Also, the 'offer trial' button on the scouting centre doesn't give you the options of how long you want the trial for, but you get this from the players profile screen in the usual way. Is it meant to be like that or is that a bug?

just a question where are the england under 17s dont seem to be there 

We've never represented U17 International teams in the game; U19 is the lowest represented age group.

All of the players in the World Cup squad (and several others besides) are at their respective club teams though.

@Goddaça: You actually had me laughing out loud from that mini review and making my missus believe I finally lost my last marbles. You actually conjured an image into my head of Glen Murray in his mom's basement yelling at a computer screen holding a bodypillow. So thanks for that, I guess.

Welcome to every dream I’ve ever had.

Liverpools default Scout package seems to be the UK. Should that be reported in the data forum?

Had a young player sign his first professional contract, and on the social media feed, all the fan responses were positive. Looks as though that's been fine tuned, which is nice.

Can we not split screen match day anymore?

Split screen as it was is no longer an option, however you can "dock" widgets and pin them, which creates the same effect. When dragging a match widget, there are icons at the top/bottom/left/right, if you drag onto those you create a dock. Click the pin icon and you have a split view between the pitch and your widgets, so you can have the view split from any angle and have any widgets you'd like in it. It can be widened if you choose to.

Anyone else find it really difficult to see what's happening in-game? It is destroying my eyes trying to find the ball 👎

I miss 2d already like the 3d data analyst but it's just not the same! Also can't see how match day stadium backgrounds can be added into game this year as pitch stays in background between highlights 😣hoping for a skin to allow this never had a FM without stadium background. Big changes RIP little dots 😔

I'd like to know this please as being on Intel HD graphics (I play in 2D) i I find it works way, way better for me. Finding it all a bit sluggish right now.

Don't like the large 'dead space' on the left and right of the social media screen, why isn't it stretched to fill the whole screen? Can only assume it's supposed to mimic Twitter in that regard. Looks weird though.

This is such a clear downgrade on last year. There was already a very similar camera to data analyst. So poor

What has happened to the standard 2D classic!? The view called 2D classic is the one which was called 2D before which I don't like at all. When miles said no-one would play 2D any more he can't have meant because they got rid of the old school view. 

What about it don't you like?

Is there any way to convert FMF to TAC files? Export if you have FM17? Seems silly not to be able to use tactics from last year?

Set pieces are still messed up since fm17: I want my left FB to stay on the left side, the RB to stay on the right side and the DM between both. Its just not possible.

What about it don't you like? 

In the old 2d the match took up most of the screen and the stadium wasn’t visable. Now that the stadium is visable the pitch is much smaller and therefore seems much more cramped and makes the match less clear in my opinion. 

The 2d classic view of old is one I have used for years and years and it’s a shame to not have that.

The 2D view is horrendous this year, clearly this is being phased out. YouTubers in particular will be miffed at this unless there's not so much lag when rendering the 3D view.

What's happened to 'close view' and 'main stand view'? There's only a few options this year. This is a major step backwards IMO

And the data analyst view is utterly useless as you can't see the ball.

Use zoom and high in the preferences to adjust your camera view.

I like the “new” 2d view. But for those of you who have played some of their games, how is you passes completed stat? I just smacked Fola Esch (lol) in euroleague qualis, but they had almost 100 more passes made then me haha. Doesnt seem right that my BPD Bonucci had 9 passes in 55 minutes in one game.

Can't say I'm a huge fan of the new tactic screen. Don't know what having to expand/reduce the formation part achieves when pretty much all of the information shown fitted on to one screen in FM17. 

 

Also, hovering over the 'i' button of players/staff really seems to be an issue. Sometimes not showing any stats/attributes at all, and it no longer shows a player's star rating which was handy to get a quick idea of their quality.
