Does anyone know why they haven't/aren't releasing new features? Very strange marketing campaign. Kinda worries me there isn't going to be an improvement on fm16 (Which was the worst fm ever)

They did a similar thing for FM15 I believe. All features are being released within the two weeks leading up to release.

 

They released the first look at the FM17 engine: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SzWtL8uL_mg

 

Looks identical to the FM16 engine to me, but when I brought that up with Miles he replied:

 

"the only bit that looks the same is that there's a game of football going on, Matt." which is worrying that he thinks it looks vastly different to FM16.

 

I disagree with your bold bit though; it may be your opinion but I think you'd probably find statistically it's their best and most popular to date, although I'm too lazy to find the data for real, but I'd be shocked if it wasn't. It is still in the top 10 peak concurrency chart on Steam.

Thought this years was pretty good tbh, they are probably running out of big things they can really change now though, would like to see a more interactive training system but thats about it.

 

Like a few have mentioned though, to start with Boro as a prem side will be enough for me to buy it regardless of changes

I like the old training system better, where you could use the sliders to set up training programs for different groups of players. Definitely needs changing the training like

If anybody wants a cheap football management game, try the APP called Football Chairman. There's a free version and a Pro version, which costs £2.99. It's extremely easy, user friendly, and not full of too much detail. It is also VERY ADDICTIVE! You can get through a season in a day. Start in the 3rd tier of non league.

The weird thing is that in FM17, De Pena is actually rated almost exactly the same as Downing.

 

Also Gibson is still criminally underrated.

 

I won't spoil the CA/PA for those that don't like to know but I always check to see how Boro are rated.

 

Negredo is our best rated player, Valdes & Guzan are both the same rating and De Roon is the best of the 3 midfielders.

Struggling with boro on this, can't seem to find the right tactics, playing a 4-2-3-1 but can't seem to stop conceding goals, what mentality and instructions have you guys gone for?

Just picked berahino up on a free transfer St the end of the first season, potential to be a leading prem player, think I've grabbed myself a bargain

I've just bought and booted up a game with Boro. Watch me crash and burn.

 

Btw what's the difference between the normal and Touch version? Is Touch just a slimmed down version like last years option (which I can't remember what was called)

Berahino got 24 goals for me in a team that finished 14th, he's a great free transfer, just couldn't find a tactic that meant I didn't concede constantly

Think first window is rough. Not a lot of money but the team is lacking in areas such as CM, AM and at LB where Friend doesn't seem good enough. Strangely Bernardo is the highest rated CD.

 

And Nsue refuses to leave. Need to raise some money.

18 mins played of the first match and the first glitch already appears. Valdes kicks a backpass straight into the neck of Gibson, ball bounces back to Valdes who somhow just stands still and lets the ball bounce off him only for the Bournemouth player to roll the ball into the net. Jesus, you'd think they tested the game for stuff like this.

 

Haha, at least Negredo scores with a 25 yard shot that the keeper somehow fumbles in. Even 10 men down I get back from 0-2 but the Gibson eventually heads into his own net with the back of his head completely unchallenged. Already I have trouble seeing myself play this game much. Was lloking forward to it, but one game in and I'm already wondering how they can make *** like this.

    • The appeal doesn't go to the EFL, it goes to an independent board.
    • You couldn't really legislate for Hugill scoring a worldy. That said even though we were crap and sloppy, but we should've got a point out of it.
    • The last section is the exact reason Wigan won't win their appeal. The EFL simply refuse to acknowledge that their set of tests is not fit for purpose. They even then mention another case where that was evident (Bury).
    • The owners haven't massively overspent and run the club into the ground. From what I have seen Wigan is/are a fairly well run club in terms of finances (in a football sense anyway). But the owners have literally used the club for some very murky reason. They sold the club to a new owner (a fund) that the old owner was the majority shareholder in. Then immediately installed a new majority shareholder to the fund that now own Wigan. That shareholder bizarrely has no online footprint at all, other than everything related to him owning Wigan. This man then on the exact same day he has acquired the club has placed it in administration. It is that reason that Wigan are appealing the decision. All of the above of course was signed off by the EFL themselves. Which opens a whole new can of worms.
    • https://www.efl.com/news/2020/july/efl-update-wigan-athletic/   Here is the latest statement by the EFL on the Wigan situation. I agree with a lot of what they say up until they start trying to defend their fit and proper test.
