Where do you hover your cursor?

Recommended Posts

Across 15 years of CM/FM I have always been a superstitious mouse cursor hoverer, and I know many other people on here as well.

Where do you hover your cursor in FM09? Have you found a winning place to hover?!

Mine is just to the left or right of the timeline, depending on if I'm home or away.

I'm generally too busy combing the stats to hover my cursor :)

come on people. we do this. especially during penalties - does clicking/swivvling/swooshing over player/keeper work?! More to the point, do we think it does...

mine's over the pause/play icon ;)

I did that to begin with, but I wasn't winning, so I had to change my luck by changing the cursor default position.

Yes, I'm aware I'm mad.

Swooshing over the penalty takers head clearly distracts him!

Yes I used to do this, old CM times far left on your team i home page. Funny how other people seem to do this too.

Now since the layout has changed so much I don't do it no more, probably why I'm losing so many games.

I have to hover mine over my team's name at the top of the screen... I've been doing this for a good six years or so now! Great thread :D

I don't hover it anywhere in particular. Maybe I should though and see if it helps results...

Behind the opposition's goal. Although lately I've stopped doing it regularly.

Funny how you forget the things you do so often when you're not actually playing the game at the moment! I think I always move the mouse to sit ontop of my team's name at the top of the screen. I think that is just habit, from the days when you could click there to change your team's tactics and it would pause the game while you do it. Now I have to rush my cursor to the pause button and then click for my tactics!

Same here, I used to do it all the time. Now I just hover it behind the byline somewhere. It's never on the pitch though, unless I'm clicking a player to check his name or clicking on my one of my own players as a way of saying "pass to this guy here, you clowns".

close to the tactics button and moving around looking through screens. I don't let go of my mouse.

bloody hell! i thought it was only me that did that! lol. i used keep my cursor just left of the pitch. i felt it was unlucky to have it on the pitch. with demo ive been keeping it on the 'pause' button. seems to be working fine for me.

lol, cant believe people are as insane as me, epic post, i always have mine over the pause button. Would like to say its for reasons of changing my tactics but the sad truth is that if i have it anywhere else on the screen i blame anything that goes wrong on that.

This isn't remotely insane compared to the lengths that some people go through.

There are people who play the CL music before each european game, and wear a suit on final day (You know who you are!)

As long as it's not 'on the pitch' I don't care. I'm usually doing something else on the PC while a game plays anyway so no actual set location. :)

just over the team name tatics and the bottom left of the screen. Normally over the first letter! Been doing this for over 6 years now!

when highlights occur I always move the mouse so that the 'pointy finger' of the cursor is at the intersection of the halfway line and the bottom side of the pitch :)

This, obviously (!), gives the match engine an impression I am impartial and causes it to not bias the resulting passage of play against me ;)

I used to avoid hovering over the names of players of the other team during matches, since it seemed to cause them to score (in my mind, of course).

Now? I don't care so much, since they seem to score anyways :p

I put mine in the very bottom right hand corner so I can't see it :p. I have done it for atleast 5 years now and don't intend on stopping :D.

I put it off the pitch but on Penalties I put it where I want my striker to shoot or my keeper to dive

On my team's logo/kit or name when I'm behind and trying to score; on the "pause/change tactics" button when I'm defending a lead. Superstitious geek I am.

I'm not sure where I hover the mouse- I'm usually crying into a tissue when I watch my pathetic team.

Mine's right on the tactics button - I need to be able to click it quickly in case anyone gets a 'minor knock' and they keep on aggravating that broken fibula whilst the game grinds away relentlessly.

wouldnt it make more sense to have it on pause for this reason? you see someone get a knock you pause it right away and then make the change this ensures it gets made at first possible chance.

Football knows no 'pause' or 'time out'. I'm a hard core LLM :cool:

Normally, during a game I place the cursor behind the left-hand goal, just off the screen. It has become something of a habit, though as I've become more of a tactical tweaker, this tends to happen less.

Theres a medical term for this sort of thing......its called OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder)..............i keep my mouse cursor 3 pixels up and 12 pixels across in the bottom left corner......

Over the tactics button looking to make a quick change which never takes place quickly enough leading to a goal which could easily have been avoided. Grrr

I have found a winning hover position! On the play/pause button on the timeline.

Woo!

Damn! I lose then! Mine is juuuust to the right of the pause button in case I press it by accident... but close enough to click if an emergency!:cool:

A bit lost when I watch on TV mode in 3D though - not sure where to have it now hmmm...
