What are you expecting to see from this game, and what improvements do you hope will be made?
They reckon it will be released around October 2011, with SI making an announcement in August and the demo around September.
at this stage I honestly dont know what they can do to improve it, I dont want them wasting more time on a match engine when I pay bugger all attention to it, I love the game at the moment and am more than happy to just have the updated squads every year to be honest!
I dont want to pay €40 for the game, then wait 3 months for a patch to fix all the issues.
I still think there is a good bit they can do to make the game more realistic, I agree that the match engine isn't really a priority at all anymore. Fine as it is.
Maybe an upgrade to the match engine.
Wouldn't mind if they didnt do anything to it at the same time tho. Not that big of a deal.
More intense beta testing. To me it seems like they put **** all effort into testing FM11 considering all of its problems.
More options for team talks/press conferences. Too boring and predictable.
Pretty sure I'll think of more stuff later on.
Proper AI squad building
Improve implementation of Agents
Press Conferences generally are boring and mundane ****e talk for managers but it does need more options in the game.
Improve how coaches work at a club (make it more than just about training ratings)
Most of what they have to do is clean out the existing bugs rather than tack on completely new features that have been half tested.
No glaring faults on release.
I won't be getting it anyway, I tend to get it every second year.
Improved Press conferences and better team talks during the matches. Both of them are fairly poor.
I don't like doing either.
All i ask for is:
improved ai transfers-just limit the activity, too much signings happen imo.
improved squad building-should be a management stat, obviously some managers will be shocking at building a squad but its not exactly rocket science. if a player retires(like scholes irl) it should be like a big deal of who they get to replace them, with a particular player highlighted.
they should make a bigger deal out of transfers 2, like messi signed for city for 72 mill and barely a word was said about it.
director of football-a dof should happen in the game-targets players and gives you a list of players for certain positions
oh and improve MLS please, the ****ness of ai becomes apparent when managing here. they should allow u edit wage cap(and also stuff like how much it increases every so often) and allow u to edit expansion teams for a certain date and also have a few random expansions every so often
3 consective games, 3 times a player has been injured EXACTLY on 4 mins.
I find having to buy extra players just to compensate.
3 season in and each season a player has broken a leg leaving them out for the season (Usually a pretty good player to)
Like I said previously, the 11.3 patch screwed up the injury frequencies and put them way too high.
Anyway, I've uploaded my database fix
Only downside is you'd have to start a new game
I did take note and thanks for that. I just cant bring myself to start a new game just yet!
I'd like to not have to trawl through the editor to get things fixed
Or have to delete files in order to have the real German and Japanese teams... took me ages to find how to get them
And to follow up on Dempsey's post, realistic squad building. The amount of shite players playing for the best teams and the lack of depth is terrible.
