FM18

Looks like I won't be able to tell players to piss off any more if they want a new contract.

Apparently changes to the scouting system as well so the data analysts will actually will have role this time around. Also sports scientists will have role that matters as well.
And in conclusion, how far had you got through reading this before you realised it was my signature?

This game peaked about 10 years ago.

I enjoyed last years.

Looked into it a bit more, sounds like it'll be more difficult to sign players and keep players happy.

I think that it's just impossible to get into now unless you have a lot of free time. I get an hour or two tops per week on the PS4 so would never have time to get into FM now.

I agree. I gave up on these games about six or seven years ago when they took the attempts to make it realistic past the point of being fun.

I just wanted a few hours of playing at being a manager to get over the stress of the day, instead these games started to feel more like work than playing a game.

I'm still on 12. Don't have the time to invest in a new save anymore. It's a shame because it seems to be getting better and better.

I usually buy it every 2-3 years. Got 17 so won't be getting 18 unless something amazing comes out for it.

Also I'm a bastard to my players so this dynamics thing might screw me over <erk>

Looking forward to this one.

The Dynamics thing looks pretty good also the scouting thing is fairly realistic.

My only issue is I'm probably going to piss off a lot of the Toon squad when I sell Diame and colback as I'd imagine they'll be part of social groups

As far as I'm concerned, the only threads about football manager acceptable on Toonforum are about installation <roll> viewtopic.php?f=8&t=809&p=47811&hilit=steam#p47811

So Colback is a squad leader so if he goes the team are going to get very annoyed

10m to spend

Not sure how much i will use as tbh squad is well balanced and still quite massive

Think I might get this... Looks quite in depth.

Ridiculously in depth now, not sure how much is gained by some it. Started a Newcastle save, spent ages getting scout & data analysis reports on 2 players then once I'd signed them they turned out to s****!

You guys do know that they release a condensed "classic" version alongside the main game each year? Great if like me, all you care about is picking the team, watching circles, and signing players.
