Am I right in assuming that UEFA International League is called this instead of UEFA Nations League due to licensing issues?

Hi, I have question about VAR in game. In my game (Herta - Gladbach in Bundesliga) I had disallowed goal for offside, which really wasn't (look at the picture). Referee checked the VAR and told it was offside. Is VAR only visual feature? I was expecting to referee to change the decision after looking at video ... Is this normal behaviour or should I report a bug?

As far as I am aware it should change his decision (if he feels he made a mistake), if you feel the game is wrong then worth raising the issue in the bugs forum especially as it doesn't look like a close call in your screenshot.

This doesn't seem to be an option in FMT, so we have no control over what panels we see on the home page.  This is a really poor decision. Leave the user in control unless they choose otherwise. Surely a pin/padlock graphic actually on the screen would be better than burying it in the preferences. 

It's worth raising the issue in the bugs forum then, as I don't know why the option wouldn't be listed for Touch Mode.

Last friendly before the PL starts. It's my team Newcastle United v Celtic. Predication draw, fair enough. We win 2-0 and my asssman at the end of the game suggests we say nothing!! Really. 

He is experienced. it's Rafa's old mate.  We are about to embark on staying alive in the Pl and he suggests saying nothing - get real. 

That is disappointing, nothing big or game changing but a bit shoddy.

The game is rather slow, it takes more than it should to process stuff, it was the same for me in FM18's Beta so I'm expecting it to pick up soon but I feel like you should know in order to work on it. Aside from that the game feels like a considerable improvement over 18.

@Seb Wassell i think you acknowleged injuries in matches were a little high. Do you still need examples logged as bugs? (i just had 5 in one match)

If its accepted as a bug will it be a hot fix, or more likely try and get it sorted for the main release?

Cheers

Has anyone else noticed commentary often repeating 2-3 times (especially around goal replays (even if goal replays are turned off)) when watching a match in FMT?

No more examples needed, thanks for offering.

It's under review, beyond that I am afraid I cannot comment on time-frames.

Wondering if anyone with more knowledge than myself and some of the others in the Dutch research forum can help - there is an issue with takeovers occurring at Ajax which shouldn’t be happening. This has been logged by Reddiablo and is being looked at for final release, ky question is should a fix for this be included in the release day version - will this be save game compatible? As in from the date of your game, once patched, the likelihood of a takeover is drastically reduced? Or would you need to start a new game to see this happen?

Yet again in this year's release the final column of my custom squad view (average rating) disappears every time I navigate away and return. Please address this so I don't have to continuously right click and auto size columns.

Big test for me will be whether it remains too easy to get unrealistic job offers as a Sunday league LLM.

In the beta I've started Sunday league, no badges, and lost in playoff final with Dulwich Hamlet, so bang on prediction, then halfway through season 2 was in fifth when media prediction was second. Leyton Orient mid-table in the league above contact me uninvited for a job interview.

Not off to a good start re the above concerns, albeit way short of being bug-report worthy, especially in circumstances where it hasn't changed in years as I appear to be in something of a minority.

Liverpool seem to make a habit of it. Coutinho and Torres for example. And of course we got VVD in January too. Man Utd also got Sanchez, but obviously Arsenal were left without many other options for that deal. I'm sure there's more examples, but I'm extremely hungover.

Yes you may get one or two who force their way out or aren't playing enough so leave but on FM I've seen players transfers go through that just wouldn't happen irl in the middle of a season

I get a sense from the feedback and the numerous video series I've been watching that it's difficult to lose with a top team and difficult to win with a poor team. Seems balanced for LLM but too easy to mash continue and smash up the AI as a top side.

My Arsenal team who can’t perform can spank Man City 8-0 in a cup final and then 6-1 a few days later...

I actually don’t want to win by these scorelines :rolleyes:

 Griezmann to United, Dybala to Munich, Lewendowski to Barcelona and Dembele to PSG all in one window.  All clubs flying in their respective competitions and all players playing weekly and doing well for their sides.   Just wouldn't happen in that window. A summer window perhaps as they all went off in a chain move almost very unrealistic. So tell me when that's happened??

Hi

I guess the only complaint I have so far is that the dark skin isn't very dark... there is still lenty of bright white on every screen. Admitedly it is the colours of the team I am managing, but I thought using the dark skin would at least get rid of some of it, especially in the inbox. It is just something that bugs me because I have light sensitive eyes so bright stuff is a big no for me!

Otherwise loving the game so far, can't wait to start my main save when the game officially releases!

The early excitement of playing the game has slowly tempered over the few last days. I played around 24 hours since the beta release and about 25 matches in total. There are definitely some improvements and I’m yet to create my own training schedule. I’ve encountered a few elements that made the game less enjoyable. First one is injuries, getting at least one player out injured, never managed to field my best 11 this season so far. Just when I was about to do that, Alli got a 2 months injury on England duty, while Eriksen picked a short term injury on Denmark duty after being sidelined for 4 months with a broken ankle. I saw that SI are investigating the issue so I hope and think this will be sorted out.

Another thing that’s been causing me issues is the AI defensive shape. I was never good at it and I admit it sincerely, we managed to win against bottom half sides through free kicks, corners, long shots etc. That’s an issue for me because it shows we’re relying on luck.

 

Other than that, the game’s pretty stable for a beta version with the odd bug here and there but nothing serious.

tut mir leid, dass ich es auf Deutsch schreibe, aber hier ein kurzes Feedback.

 

Leider scheinen die Transfer immer noch nicht realistisch zu sein. Es kann nicht sein, dass ich für einen Spieler wie Pellegri 120 mio + 40% des Weiterverkaufs bezahlen soll. Dies gilt auch für viele weitere Spieler wie Havertz für den ich 130mio zahlen soll. Ich finde dies sehr schade, denn so geht jeder Spaß am Spiel verloren.

Probably.

A few things I have noticed:

1) What happened to the pump ball into box instruction? Can't seem to find that anywhere.

2) What happened to  fluid/flexible/structured etc? Again can't seem to find them anymore.

3) Why a striker with a support duty can no longer be given the go more forward instruction? Being forced to give a striker an attack duty means that they will be completely useless in defensive situations by remaining shoulder to shoulder with the CDs all the time. I could understand it for a poacher or a couple of specific strikers, but not any striker with an (a) duty.

Danny Ings as leading goalscorer sort of negates the realism there :D

It will depend on what is causing the issue, if it's something caused by the starting data then it will likely need a new save game, if it's just something caused by the game code then it might be save game compatible well assuming the takeover talk hasn't already started.

I appreciate it's too early in my game to say whether both teams are just are good/bad form, so was wondering other peoples experiences with Liverpool or City who might be a lot further in than me?

i holidayed until feb 2024 from the start of a save and man city have won the league every year and a currently top by 15 points in 2024

This could be a great game but the state of the injuries is absolutely hilarious, all my substitutions are injury based not tactical.I can't wait to be told it's in keeping with real world football.3 injuries a game.

Support duty strikers are already far forward, their starting position is just a bit deeper and they'll be more willing to drop deep, depending on your other tactical settings.  And an attack duty striker's usefulness in defensive situations will depend on other factors, such as mentality, line of engagement and so on.  It's just new stuff, try things out - experiment :thup:.

I don't think United is ever going to be a good comparison point right now.  There are some things that FM shouldn't be expected to model, and one of those is a manager trying to get sacked to collect a severance package.

Just a little observation, I'm seeing maybe too many last ditch tackles in the box being successful.

Going to report a bug re. own goals as well being wrongly reported to other team - shook the life out of me lol!

Have to say overall, really enjoying the game and I'm having to tear myself away from it otherwise I'll be up until 6am on this damn thing! :O

Like what exactly? You say it won't be any good but don't say why, maybe they are issues which people can help with, or that are reported bugs.

From what I've seen the view is mainly positive.

Are through balls dead in this version or is it me that dont understand tacticts or player choices correctly? managing Liverpool, seeing so much space to thread the ball but it never happens, granted i have a midfield with Millner Henderson and Keita. but you would Think that sometime, sometime they would utilise that space to Place a a pass? so im thinking im doing something wrong? i cant find "plays through balls" as a tactic choice so it  only gets available to players. so does that mean it will never happen with these players? also Firmino , Salah, Mane has 10 goals together in novemeber lol, im a tactical mastermind, playing Salah and Mane as inside forward and Firmino as pressing forward in the standard gegenepressing tactic. Salah is utter ***** btw. i must be missing something crucial this version

Can you tell more about it? I'm playing it almost non-stop and it is, by far, the most stable Beta I ever played. With some issues, ofcourse, and reported accordingly, but totally playable.

To add to the comments about injuries, they're almost absurdly frequent in this beta.

In multiple games I've had 4-6 players injured during a match. Sometimes I have to use all my subs during the first half, only to see 3 more players go down during the second half.

Also, a crazy number of tackles are successful on top-level dribblers without fouling...it's HARD to tackle Messi and Bernardo Silva and Isco to win the ball without fouling them. In this game, it's almost flawlessly successful, no matter the level of the opposition and the player tackling.

I like the new tactics setup and the training layout. Excited for the full release. Thanks!

One thing I'm noticing is the 3D experience is quite jittery on my MacBook, despite me using exactly the same settings from FM18 for rendering 3D. Is this permanent or just because it's BETA?

 

Also seems to take an age to actually launch the game from the dock, click the icon and takes 20 mins or so to open!

Inside forwards seem to prefer running wide and crossing to coming inside to shoot.  Attacking wingbacks will often get a step on their marker and turn back towards the corner flag rather than towards the penalty area.

It would also be nice to have the opportunity to talk to groups of players in the post-match teamtalk about things that aren't related to their exact positional thing.  Like, midfielders taking or missing chances, forwards creating chances for others, defenders passing out from the back.  That's been missing for several versions.
