**** this. the only reason I'm still playing FM is because of the savegame I have with my mate...because this **** is just out of hand. your players are dumb ****s, the opposite players, even the all-stats-below-9 ones are godlike machines; the match engine, well, is probably just an "engine", definitely not worthy of having "match" in the name; there isn't a single day that goes by without at least three news of some player of yours getting injured; the game just genuinely doesn't make any sense.
About the injuries, I confirm. Holy crap, around February (a crucial moment, CL and stuff), I have half of the lead team injured. ALWAYS. I don't stop playing it because of this, but it is quite annoying.
I think the match engine is just fine. It has some bugs, and unusual moments, but I don't see anything bad about. It's football.
Stop kicking your computer lads :P
Thanks to Kenzo for the sig and to Shinji for the pixel kit.
everybody has different problems. i have only played with a team in a, i guess, less that talented leauge, and i've experienced a multitude of problems. my defenders constantly get beat by the give and go; they do not know how to take routes to balls; they will not go for a loose ball that was knocked away from an opposing player, instead they will retreat for some odd reason. my wingbacks will constantly run with the ball even set in defensive mode, and set to never run with ball or make forward runs. the strikers still miss unbelievable shots multiple times a game. i started a new game with the new patch, everyone keeps saying it's the greatest gift to man since porn, but i don't see that great of a difference. maybe it's different for big clubs where players have higher ratings, haven't tried that yet. still though, the lack of realism is appaling. i tried trolling the SI forums for some tips/help/explanation, and after about 20 minutes realized i'd have better luck furiously masturbating figuring this **** out. still a fun game, i've played every version since 01/02 but some of these bugs/glitches that i've expected to go away have just been hanging around.
“Settle down. Put away the torches and pitchforks. The sun will come up tomorrow. Unless, of course, Kevin McHale is somehow put in charge of the solar system. In which case the sun will implode and we all will die.” -- St. Paul Pioneer Press columnist Tom Powers on the KG trade.
man **** this ****! I started a new game with St Etienne after I installed the patch, and I'm currently in 2010/2011. but I swear if this happens again I'll never play FM in my entire life.
if everything would have went right, I'd be the top club in Europe now. Wagner, Neymar, Piatti, Lulinha, Hector Moreno, Sotiris Ninis, David De Gea, Aykut Demir, Rabiu Ibrahim, Lucas Trecarichi, Aquino, Bogdan Stancu, Bernardo, Vincent Muratori... f*ck each one of them has world class potential and half of them left cause the owner decided to accept the offer. take Piatti for example, I bought him for 400k, and after 2 seasons he was worth 8mil. then Udinese comes, after many other rejected offers, they make a 11mil bid, I reject it and the chairman accepts it stating that it's too much to refuse (when I have a 50mil budget and when I refused a 18mil offer). Hector Moreno, maybe the best defender in the game, got him for 5mil for Alkmaar, was worth 10 in 1 year, leaves to Benfica for 14mil, same story. and those are just a few examples. the only good thing that's happened is that I've signed Lulinha in my first season for like 4mil and Nurnberg made a 25mil offered which I imediately accepted, and now he's in their reserve team.
anyway, it could have been the first time when my team was entirely made up of top class talents that I've found and half of them get sold by the chairman for lousy offers. and I don't care about the other players, it's just that I'm sorry for the ones that I've grew and for the fact that I've got to pay enormous amounts for a decent 25-year old when everybody else gets bargains for awesome players. plus they said that they fixed this in the patch.
Great to see more romanian people here!
What status has the chairman? (loves the club etc.) It may be because he doesn't love the club. In my game, at least, Gigi (Steaua's chairman, George Becali) was indifferent to 18mil.
Have you seen how good Dayro Moreno is in the game?
P.S.: (at least a message in romanian plz mr. mod) Ti-as fi scris in romana mai sus dar nu m-au lasat, asa ca savureaza titlul cu Steaua!

English plz.. Not EVERYONE here is from UK/US/AUS. This doesnt mean whenever one finds someone who speaks a different lang one should start talking random, Im not saying you did that, but for all I know as a mod here, you could be talking warez. Lets just stick to what we all understand, ok?
The single most annoying thing for me is that everyone seems to have A.D.D in this ******* game. Clubs will make the same offers over and over even though I keep rejecting. Players will keep asking for first team football every month even though they apparently "issued a public appology". Sometimes, when a player requests a transfer and I reject, he'll keep requesting every time I click continue. Is there no way to control this ****?
