  1. Is the new FM worth getting?

    I've heard a lot of bad thing about the new FM match engine, but is it really that terrible? What does it do? I mean will it produce freak results meaning your job is a lot harder, will it make people like Messi perform badly too often to be realistic? Or does it just make for a bad viewing?

    Thanks for your help

    It's brilliant! Best FM to date by far. The match engine isn't bad, there are just lazy whiners who have had their plug 'n' play exploit tactics removed so they now expect the best tactics that are out there to download to win every game. However, if it doesn't have multiple approachs nothing like that's not going to happen and so they blame their losses on the match engine. I'm playing better than ever before on this FM. If you adapt and/or make new tactics or download someone else's tactics and adapt them.

    Opinion sways between broken and the best ever. It's probably leaning but closer to best ever. It's not perfect by any means, but its throughly enjoyable.

    People will say many different things about, so I would say that its 50% on steam at the moment, so nows a good time to buy it.

    Not sure how it does. It could have had one patch and been left at that. Or, they could do their usual old 3 patch strategy, and you then wait 3 years to get it to supremely stable. For FM12, see FM 10, unpatched. The game is a yearly release, the development cycle isn't though.

    I doubt it could have been much better, if they had waited till FM14, it probably would be in a better state, but many things need mass testing anyway, so lots of same problems would have cropped up even then ( strong case for more beta testers?). But then you'd have many people complaining there was no new match engine. Damned if they do, damned if they dont.

  9. I have been playing the demo and have not been impressed.

    ...But I just downloaded the full version on Steam. I hope it goes better this time around.
