  1. Football Manager 2013 - Classic Mode (FMC)

    Football Manager Classic is a new mode introduced in Football Manager 2013 as a less time consuming way to play Football Manager. It is still Football Manager, you will jus find that a number of responsibilities have been taken over by your backroom staff or have disappeared completely.

    For example, you, the manager, will still take control of training but it will only be at 'full team' level only - there is no individual player training. There are also no Team Talks or Opposition Reports as the key here is to get you into the match as quickly as possible.

    Matches are played out in a 'Highlights Only' fashion. There is also the option of just choosing 'Instant Result' and skipping the entire match if you are in a real hurry.

    Really don't understand some complaints/criticism of this. Really good idea by SI for this

  3. I think the criticism stems from the idea that game development is a zero sum thing. When the team spends a significant chunk of time (and they must have) on a mode that hardcore players will never go near the assumption is that it hurts the mode we are so used to. And surely, had the team not decided to create this new mode, they would have spent that time developing new features for the mode we all love.

    I dont know if the concern (that the regular game mode suffers) is valid, but the argument (that it COULD have) certainly is.

    Im obviously excited about the new AI and the 3d improvements and the DoF staffer, and im sure lots of other things, this MAJOR part of the new game though is totally useless for me though.

    For what its worth... from my perspective this is a bad idea. The mode is clearly an attempt to broaden the user base, but im already a user, and LOVE spending the time required to progress in the game. I play the game specifically for the complexity that classic mode removes, and so many others do. SO for me this is a a feature I will never ever use.
    Well tbf FM 2013 is pretty much catered for both sides. People who play it "hardcore", and for people who have less time to play due to real life committments etc. Does no harm whatsoever. obviously people will agree/disagree, but no-one is going to be entirely happy with this. Same applies to any game released, or expansions.

    Just because they were developing a new mode it doesn't mean the work they did on that had no positive impacts on the original mode.

  6. SI must be the only company who spend time creating a whole new game mode and then get whined at by their fanbase for 'wasting time'.

    Very true. Only other company I can think of that gets so much stick is Blizzard for each expansion for WoW. Different games I acknowledge, but can't seem to do any right

    I kind of liked the idea of Classic mode, then I can have one savegame in classic mode if I just want to play a little when I dont have the real time to play the main mode. So i think I will use both versions.

    But will the classic mode come in the same DVD as the main Football manager? *Or is classic mode an app on ipad or internet you can download. The purchase of unlockable features confuses me a little bit as you already have paid maybe €40...

    classic mode was oringinally going to be a seperate game but they decided to reward the fans of the series by including it on the disc with the original game mode, supposedly for no extra cost but tbh i don't pay attention to the price from year to year so wouldn't know. also i'm sure they said they've been actively working on it for the past 4 years or at least that it wasn't all developed this year so it's not like the original game mode isn't going to progress any more then normal for the last few years and the match engine changes suggest that aspect has moved forward alot and taken up alot of time that would otherwise be put into other new features and upgrades of previous ones.

  10. I like the idea of this, It's something different if you wish to play a different mode to usual. As for the complaints about this, you don't HAVE to play it, it's just an option.
