    Never read the feedback threads. Ever. Play it yourself.

    I think they have buffed free kicks too much, its 2/3rds of the way through my season and my LB has scored 11 free kicks. (13 FK 11 LS att.) I am in the BSP.

    what are the rest of his attributes (technique decisons flair) 13 and 11 is quite high for bsp

  5. 11, 10, and 11 respectively. I would note he is probably my star player. One of my highest earners too.

    I'll actually look forward to that when I go on tonight, it was terrible before. The bastard love child of David Beckham, Roberto Carlos and Cristiano Ronaldo couldn't have scored a free kick as it was.
    epic terrorist and barakus like this.

    I agree, I had never scored a FK on the last patch. But now I feel I am scoring too many.

    Thats pretty good for your level. Starting a number of saves at various side so I will keep an eye out, but I wouldnt worry just yet.

    My scouts say he league 2 level.

    It feels similar to using a corner bug in previous versions, it just takes the fun out of the game imo.

    I would also like to add that I have been seeing a lot more disallowed goals due to offside, for both me and the AI.

  10. Just installed the update via steam but i have some questions about it.
    In match, i have "only commentary". With previous update a match was winished in 5 minutes, now with this update it takes about 10-15 minutes to finish a match and it's getting annoying. The minutes are passing slower even with highlights speed at maximum. And after finishing a match there is no possibility to give team talk, it was removed for good or my update is going crazy? Thanks.

    From my top flight experience they are not flying in like that so far. Maybe he is just too good for the keepers at his level. be interesting to see how he does if you get promoted

    I'd agree about the goalkeepers, many will be very poor at that level. He is a player playing below his level and has a good free kick, unless he gets 30 in a season, I wouldn't be as disheartened as to say it takes the fun out of the game.

    If it does, change your free kick taker.

    I am managing Eastleigh in my second season. They start in the BSS and I won the league quite easily. I am sitting top of the BSP with 66 points, 6 ahead of 2nd place. There are 14 matches left in the season so hopefully I should see myself promoted. I'll keep track of him and see how he performs.

I have scored and conceded a huge chunk of goals like this after the new update. Anyone else seen this?
    Yeah, it's really annoying. The only good to come out of this patch so far is I can actually save search filters now, I'm not impressed with this update at all.

  15. I found this patch pretty much ruined the game, at least for me. It's bloody too easy now. It's like back in Fm11 or Fm12 again.

    I'm obviously gonna bite the bullet at some point and go online with steam, perhaps I'll wait to I finish my season, save it up and go from there, don't like the sounds of these free kicks tho!

    Free kicks sound like they are doing what they are supposed to, which is good, unless you have short players and no free kick specialist

  18. Waiting til Feb!

    Bought the game the day it came out and have to say as I've had every single version since the original Champ Man's in 93 or whenever it was, I have been mostly disappointed with this one. Few bugs in usability, rearranging how my tactics screen looks and not being consistent with it, occasionally not being able to drag and drop to swap players etc. All relatively minor things but when they happen time after time it's very frustrating. Then every one of my save games wouldn't load due to some Group_Error which SI couldn't resolve, ruining my Bournemouth in the Premier League in 2015 game. Had to uninstall and re-install just so I could start a new game that could actually then be loaded again. Now with the patch it probably won't work correctly unless I start a new game again. Think I'm going to go back to my multiple La Liga and Champions League winning Numancia side on FM12. What's the point of starting a new game now only for updates and a new patch to be out after the Jan transfer window? Anyway, minor rant over!

  19. SI have ruined FM for me. Totally. Hours of work on a tactic that won me the league with Spurs in first season and Europa league now doesn't work. thanks.

  20. How do i get the update?? My FM says its still using Version 1.0 ?? Any help guys, cheers

    Providing you have Steam online and are not running FM at the time, the update is automatic.

    I havent noticed any difference to be honest. A Dark skin and that is about it. I also do not know how to check if i have the update or not.

    Go to Game Status whilst playing the game. Version number will start with 13.2.0.

This could be caused by not using the editor properly or using downloaded skins kits and badges etc.

    I got 6 injuries in my first 3 games

    This in a nutshell. It frankly gets boring that people say someone is defending the game when they point out an issue might not be an issue. Which is why i tend to avoid most posts than wildly exaggerate. No information in those posts at all

  27. Seems like a few guys are making sweeping generalizations after only a few matches. But I guess that's a fun thing to do so here's mine.

    Seems like dribbling has been ramped up a heap. I use the 4231 Balanced Control tactic with Crewe, and my AP had about 19 dribbles last match.

    Like the fact that free kicks go in now. Set pieces was a stat almost not worth chasing, but now they are going in, it will be more important and maybe even worth training def set pieces. Which I've never bothered with before.

  28. Never had a crash dump before the update, 3 games into the update some sort of runtime error! Bollocks

  29. Yeah same here.

    Lagging loads then crashes. Crashed 3 times tonight only got a week played! Given up for the night now.

  30. Players like to go on crazy dribbling runs like they did on FM12 which is slightly annoying because they skip past about 6 players whilst doing so.


    That being said, freekicks are going in a lot more now which is nice and my team as a whole is playing better so no complaints from me.

  31. I'm a bit miffed that they haven't sorted out rep/attendance issues in Northern Ireland. My Wakehurst team, from 2nd division to NIP, with 8 trophies along the way, and European games, are still only selling 6 more season tickets than from when I took over. Attendances are generally tiny, and my club rep is still 20th, despite winning the league last season and finishing second the season before. Players are considerably harder to attract than last year, too. Lots of weird little bugs like this are slightly ruining for me.

  32. After the patch was installed I had two goals within about four matches where the player went outside the defensive line, dribbled along the byline unchallenged by any of the defenders in his way, then beat the keeper at his near post. Obviously this patch is rubbish.

    Only joking. I play in the Brazilian second division, so this sort of defensive incompetence is completely normal to me.

  33. 13.2.0 been great so far. As I like play in possession all the way. Passing accuracy is now improving, maybe need couple week as the tactic fluid.
    But is still what I see there's no improving in the defending section. Also like you guys mentioned before, the dribbling is so killing.

  34. I think the match engine is now worse apart from scoring freekicks as has already been mentioned, scored my first direct freekick in 2 and a half seasons.

    I never had any real complaints with the me before this update but what I've seen so far is less than impressive. Players blasting the ball 100mph to each other and the receiver controls it easy as you like, goalkeepers are more retarded than ever doing goalkicks along the ground to opposition forwards and other moronic things as mentioned by someone else( so far my keeper has been fairly sensible but oppositions have not, so that's something at least.
    Also I have noticed alot more long shots from my players however I have just made a change to tactics so I don't know if the me is to blame for that.

    Players still not reacting to the ball I might put up an example later if I figure out how.

  35. Ive noticed another bug on my save...
    On training, i have defaults set to high and balanced, but every week that pops up at the bottom of the schedule says very low.
    so i have to change it each time...not exactly hard work but still

    I have changed to the dark-skin..could that be causing it?

    Edit: I done as said above (changed intensity to high from very low), then went back to normal white skin an they have changed back to very low again

  36. the biggest thing for me is the defenders positions my full backs going to center back while my center backs close the wingers down then a cross coming in and the oppo score an easy header due to my full backs being short, what makes it worse is it only affects me not the AI seeing a lot of people complaining about the same issue makes me think its the ME not my tactic, also i like the dribbling now i have a load of player with good drib and previously it was quite pointless it was often pace not skill that beat the oppo player

    i've noticed that but i think i noticed it before the patch i believe it was because my assistant takes charge of match training and it was in the busy xmas period so he must've dropped it to ensure the players recover more

  37. I have played 4-5 games with the new patch (not an extensive, I know). Here's what I thought:

    Pros

    - Football looks and plays better. The Passing in the first two thirds of the pitch has greatly improved.
    - Less Goals. There seem to be less 4-2s and 3-3s and more 2-1s and 1-1s.
    - Less Goals from Crosses. Heading while challenged seems to be harder.

    Cons

    - Long Dribbling Runs through the Centre. This was a problem that was fixed in the second patch (although it nerfed AMCs a bit), but has come back in this patch where a player just cuts inside from the wing and dribbles unchallenged to the edge of the box.
    - More Long Shots. My players seem to be taking more long shots even though I always have the "Work Ball into Box" shout on, although this could be happening because I need to tweak my tactics as my players may be running out of options with the new movement.

    Overall, I think this patch has improved the game marginally, although I have won all my games so far so I'll probably say I hate it when I lose I think the main thing is the football and goals look better with a lot more coming from good movement and passing.

  38. Regens nerfed?

    Since the update, my team gets no good new youth players coming through, despite top youth facilities, excellent youth training and a well established recruitment network. Nothing above 1 star potential after about 15 tries. Anyone else getting this issue?

  39. 2 words....

    LOVE IT!

  40. I'm also having the same issue dprk I tested with Barcelona, Arsenal and various top youth facilities teams and the best youth I get is a two stars guy

    Pretty fundamental issue if this is right. I'm not playing past the early March regen point until this is fixed.

    Anyone else? Would be equally useful to hear from people NOT having this problem.

  42. Feel the ME is getting there but I think they should maybe have a look at the amount of goals you concede from crosses loaded my leverkusen save after playing with Rangers and conceding quite a few with lower league teams with crosses or corners but still winning games comfortably played bayern match prep def pos and they scored 5 from crosses with Robben assisting them all with his right foot lol and one from a corner so I just quit haha.

    Now I don't now if anyone has tried to do the same but I am gonna give it a go and just attack up the wings see what happens.

  43. I've recently had problems with fullbacks doing backpasses to the keeper that the striker easily picks and scores. Sometimes the striker intercepts the pass and a few other times it goes straight through the keeper.

  44. Dunno if anyones said this already but both me and the opposition are hitting the woodwork about 10 times each every game

    Also just crashed again after beating chelsea...livid

    I'm also hitting the woodwork more often than earlier. In some matches where I'm on the offensive I can usually get 3-4 in the woodwork per match.

    This! also having issues where Cb's just run pass the ball and the striker then just runs through and scores 95% of the time.

    Yeah, both the CBs and keeper does that for me sometimes. And yeah, when it comes to shots hitting woodwork - have a perfect example now; playing at home against Bolton and won 5-1 with 26 shots (12 on target), 2 CCCs, 5 woodwork and 58% possession. Usually when I'm sitting at around 60%+ possession and getting 20+ shots off in a match I often get 3+ in the woodwork. Guess it has something to do with the tweaks to free kicks, headers from corners and long shots - at least that's usually what hits the woodwork for me.

  48. The only real problem I have with any patch so far is with this one. For some reason certain information no longer displays like the date, etc. Here is a screenshot of stuff missing since the patch (highlighted red boxes):

    UPDATE 13.2 RELEASED for Football Manager 2013-hajduk.png

  49. You can no longer offer a 1 year extension to a players contract after playing X amount of games... Very annoying. Why is this?

  50. Anybody else noticing an improved match rating for full backs since the patch update? I am now finding that my full backs average rating is around 8 or higher at the moment whereas before it was barely over 7.
