Community outreach work in FM, not sure why time needed to be spent adding that to the game but I'll keep an open mind.

Where's Miles Jacobson with that fancy feature reveal video on Vicarage Road? That used to be one of the highlights of the season...

Well, I guess the presentation maybe seems mildly less tone-deaf than previous years. Though I did almost throw up when one of the first things they discussed was how excited they were about the consistency of the FM branding throughout the game. I guarantee that absolutely no one who doesn't have a financial stake in SI gives a toss about the consistency of the FM branding.  And I still couldn't make it through 5 minutes of the video before I had to give up. At least it got me here, which is presumably what people wanted.

New features seem nice though. Looking forward to getting to grips with the new tactics creator.

I defy that statement that the club colours help you remember what save you are on.

I did laugh at that, how much of a simpleton must you be to not know what save you've just loaded up & will the background colours really jog your poor memory? What if save 1 is Barcelona & save 2 is Bologna? I mean that's two clubs starting with B & using the same colours, this guy have no chance. :D

I dont know who they're researchers are for game development but Id seriously look for another point of view.

nailed it.

Who and what is informing their development? It is - at this point - exasperating.

I dont get that argument with the club colours at all either, because when i play any of the old FMs 2017 atm i have those club colours and they define nicely the surface and do give a great feeling you are AT the cub. If anything it ISNT SO in the new game, its purple and the club colurs are throen into it , matching or not . So what do those people actually say when it was nice and working before and NOW it doesnt work anymore? Strange wannabe fanboys hope they got paid ok for being like that. Those are marketing efforts that always leave me wanting the product less than before.

 

My games tend to be untitled unknown  1 or 2 though but i still know which club i manage in them, if i needed help as i said easily was right into it before seeing the UI with loko and nice team colors, now i better save with team name because purple is definately putting the teams identity in the background.

 

Those guys remind me of those nice ladies talking about lipsticks for hours on youtube, not much substance but some seem to really dig it, even if its just superficial commercials of the worst kind. 

 

FM could do so much better ...a british guy that has been living in his mothers basement for the last 20 years, pretending to play D&D with his imaginary friends , painting Warhammer figures , knowing he will never have someone to actually play and of course a FM fanatic for all the time. That guy should tell me me why i can be excited about the new FM, but tbh what i have seen so far to honestly indorse it and come out of the basement i dnt know if you could find that guy. 

BTW for some reason the guy i am talking about is a Nottingham City fan. :-D

Player training reports and performance rating in training.

You should look at the training features thread. There's a screenshot that shows which players trained well and which players didn't .

You’re looking in the wrong place, we don’t do basements in the UK.

That's pretty good. 

You mean this? Shows 3 players, am I missing another screenshot?

There looks to be a clickable link 'Training Performance' above the three featured players? I imagine a sub-screen that shows the whole squad's performance.

There's also a lot of space to include more information/players etc.

SI responded to you before about empty space in panels being down to screen resolution and text translation differences.

I think these are the biggest changes on a new version to FM for a while not exactly sure why people are hanging on smaller UI changes. Don't like the UI then download a skin, like always... I would have preferred they spent more time on ensuring the Online game mode works out of the box but I commend them on the Training and Tactic changes.

I'm the opposite - I don't play online game - and prefer them to work on managerial aspects of the game, given the games name. 

But then again, that's why they work on both.

Haha, well you know in the Online mode you also manage a football team right?

Fair enough though. The managerial part of the game is at a good level, hence why people buy it every year. The Online part could be vastly improved. Which is why I'd prefer them to improve that.

True. But others would say that the training and the tactics need to be vastly improved, and I am one of those that think that way. 

But then again, you think the other way and want the online mode, which is something I'd never use, but I wouldn't say never to develop it further in lieu of working on other aspects of the game.

Fair enough, everybody wants different things. However there's a difference between wanting something improved because you want it to operate better and wanting something improved because at times (often on release) it actually is just unplayable.

The training performance panel looks to have a second box below which I'm presuming will show the worst ratings meaning the whole panel will be full too.

Good spot - so with no bad performers, it still lists only 3 top performers, and leaves the empty box there? Maybe it's a work in progress.

At first I thought it was early in pre season and too early to split the list but its the 27th August so should certainly by now be showing two lists of players, if that is indeed what is going to happen.

Excuse my bad cultural knowledge, we here in Germany just went form Bunker to Keller.

That probably explains why they put the watermark on there then ;)

In fairness, it's always a work in progress, plus if there's a watermark on that image I can't see it.

I think they might be on the video itself, but I’m sure I’ve seen Work in Progress plastered on them somewhere.
