Is it the mode I've been playing for 5 years, or is it dumbed down?

    Thanks in advance for any help.
    Ehr... You know that we're talking about FM2013 right, you're probably still playing FM 2012 or lower

    I'm excited but FMC sounds rubbish and those unlockables sound like they make it too easy. I'm using normal and I'll see how DoFs go since I don't want anything to do with them. My staff only get any say in the running of the club in the backroom advice window and I'm keeping it that way.

  3. There are screenshots! They are really nice and not that dark and abstract anymore. It seems to me that they took the good things from FIFA Managers (hides for angry hords of people) like the lay-out, pictograms and weekly training schedules, but still have the depths we love the game for.

  4. Don't think FMC sounds that terrible to be honest. If you don't have time to play properly because of work or whatever, or are just a casual player sounds ideal to me. Won't be using it myself as I don't have a life but think it's a good thing

    I know, FMC would just bore me but if it attracts casual gamers then it's fine because then their is more money to be reinvested into the game. If they put a lot more effort into FMC than they have done creating it then it is a bad thing.

    Doubtful to be honest. They'll want to carefully balance it between both types of players without disappointing/narking the players who play it properly. And no doubt further down the line there'll be patches to improve it aswell

    Unlockables, by the screenie I've seen, means cheats to buy. Even if it's not just cheats but also options, not happy with it.



    Not annoyed because as far as I'm concerned I just won't care to buy any of them. However, the direction it points to is bad. But then, I think SI has made some great decissions in some matters as to trust that's not going to get to make FM13 my last FM.

    Microtransactions are for FMC mode only

    The only problem I have with unlocks cheats like that is that it's real money only. At least give people some way to get them without having to spend real money - no matter how absurd and time consuming.

    edit - Nevermind.

  10. I can't wait for more information on the normal mode,
    i wont play FMC but i think it is a good idea, for the franchise itself, and even for noobs of FM that can learn the basics, and then step up to the full blown tactical side of the game

  11. Just wondering what kind of things the leaderboards are going to rank us on?

  12. Probably the same stuff that is in the hall of fame in the game. Or maybe it'll be even more in depth and take note of promotions and such. Maybe I'm having a brain fart, but did they mention anything about dynamic rivalries yet?

    i've not seen anything mentioned but one of the screenshots of afc wimbledon had mk dons under the rivals and it had historic in brackets so that virtually confirms that there are different types of rivalries and might hint towards towards dynamic rivalries but i don't remember hearing/ seeing anything official about rivalries.

  14. All of what I've seen from the screenshots look okay but in my opinion the interface looks a little messy . I just hope they actually improved the ME and not just added 800 + new features to the game although I like the DoF in the game part already.

    The FMC really sounds like fun. Playing in a network game with multiple friends was always hard because you'd lose track of what you were doing if you only meet and play 1 or 2 times a week. It would always take ages before you got to finally start playing matches. With the Classic mode it'll be faster (I hope as fast as CM01-02).

    I also read somewhere that you could play with your team from a save games against a friend's team who's playing a different save game. If this happens this year's installment is going to be so much fun

Still, market version is going to be better, so I'll get it as soon as I can.
    Just checked the price on Steam. £29.99 for pre-order, £39.99 rrp....ouch.

    Yeah Football Manager 2012 was £29.99 as well, although there will be plenty of promotions on various sites to get some early sales.

    Have played FM/CM since 01. If anything FMC is the ONLY thing tempting me to buy the new one. Don't get me wrong. I spending several hours setting up training schedules, hiring staff, attending press conferences, deciding what tone team talk my 16 year old sub might respond to best and answering the usual post-match press conference question of "well that was a good result?" after beating Barca 7-1 away from home...

    Nothing would please me more than having several spare hours a week to finish a season on new FMs. Unfortunately I (and many) don't. I get maybe 4-6 hours a week to play. I want to see seasons progress asap and so FMC could be the way forward. Though if it offers little more than say, CM01/02 or FM08 but with an updated database then I'll give my £29.99 to Oxfam or some shite

    If anything, with some of the as yet unannounced new features, he will be taking a fair bit longer.

    Best to play him on FMC if you're doing a net game

    I do admit I'm just as guilty. Even during pre-season I can easily spend a whole day setting everything-literally. From booting up in the morning until night time, then don't get round to playing a game until next day. Tactics, positioning, instructions, going through all the squads, then organising the scouting. I have tried to tone down though-but failed miserably lol

    The beauty of FMC now it seems. I'm a long-term FM/CM'er like urself but I've long grown tired of the new versions endless additions that just make seasons longer and longer. I'd dare say the likes of FM2016 will only be playable by the unemployed or exceptionally rich!

    I'd like to know how come Dunc has played FM13. Like several people here I spend ages setting up everything so everything is almost perfect for me in the backroom and makes my season a lot easier.

    Dont worry. We will all be exceptionally rich by 2016 one the economy blows up after the world ends in December 2012. Either that or we will all be unemployed, which is a more likely scenario.

    At least that'd stop you pointing out on facebook how you're being paid to eat curry and play football manager.

  35. I just want to know more about the youth recruitment, regen and tactics system. Also wondering if they changed the youth rating much since a lot of countries were either under or overrated. I know that's the first thing I'll take a look at in the editor and adjust it if I think it's absurd again.

  36. Does anyone know if the full pc version will be available on a tablet?

    I have a laptop and only really use it to play fm and getting a bit annoyed about how big & chunky it is, i know they do a handheld version of fm, but i don't know how good that is really and would rather play the full proper version.

  38. i'd love to know whether editor data will apply to both game modes or just one as i'm sure that just because some people would only have enough time to play fmc doesn't mean they wouldn't want to manage in an obscure country that's not in the game or as their local team in a lower league then the game goes.

  39. Just listened to the podcast and in it Miles says the blogs will last 5 weeks and will start today (Monday 10th Oct), which on previous history means the release date will be November 2nd

    What podcast are you on? I heard the first one but can't find the rest on itunes.

  41. The first one, just checked and they haven't done the second yet, though the blogs have started.

    LMAO.. That is so lame. That better only be in classic mode

    EDIT: It seems you can unlock these without buying them.. Maybe it's some sort of achievement thing? Either way, not needed.

    It's only for classic mode, and you don't need to use them, I don't see what the uproar is for. You don't have to use them and you don't have to buy them, but you can if you want to. If you don't use them it doesn't affect your playing experience, and if you do use them, then good for you for doing what you want if it increases the enjoyment you get for a game you paid for.

    That's not aimed at you personally, but the amount of people upset about it on SI forums and Facebook is ridiculous. Anyway, if it brings SI in some extra income, it can only improve the game in the future for all users. Micro transactions will never be part of the full game.

    Classic mode is intriguing. Might be fun every now and then, even if I don't use it regularly.

    See now that this has been briefly mentioned, I have to go over for a visit. Just to see if it's possible they can get any more pathetic with their non-sensical, childish....but most importantly ungrateful whining. No doubt someone will not fail to please

  50. Sigh. Just as I expected. Morons. Complete and utter morons.
