personally, I've just haven't gotten into FM18. This is partially because i have a long running save on fm16 but on this years edition i havent gone more than 5 seasons on a save and id it werent for me finding a great online game i would've stopped playing altogether
FM 18 is alright but the match interface is garbage, everything several thousand extra clicks away. I only play FM Touch as the full version tends to take over my life. Which is a bit sad considering I'm fucking 35 years old. Just picked it up again after 5 months off so won't be getting FM 19 for a good while, if ever. Anyone heard what the new features are?
Not sure what I'm going to do yet. Tend to wait until a couple of weeks after the main release so that the first patch fixes some of the main bugs but it sounds like there are few about in this beta release.
It seems to be getting much higher praise than the previous two FM's, although one common theme is the training, whilst greatly improved, doesn't seem to offer an overview of all of the information on offer.
It's sounding more and more like it will be worth it, particularly if you're still on '17.
I bought it on Tuesday night and had a quick look around it (without hitting the continue button) and first the impressions are very good. Whether that translates to results and enjoyment of the game (which FM18 certainly wasn't) remains to me seen!
The discounted rate is until tomorrow (or tonight).
I've got this and have liked what I've played of it so far. I passed on 18 as I've got it on a yearly basis since 2012 but never seem to get through more than three seasons (albeit 13 where I did about 6 or 7). I was going to stick with 17 for a few years but then the laptop packed in and had to get it replaced, so I lost everything (I'm not that computer savvy so unsure if the save files are kept through the steam network). Thought I'd dabble with 19 and will probably stick to it for a good number of years to get the most of it.
In the absence of a Lincoln game, I had an afternoon of it on Saturday and only 12 games in, but it's much better than the previous two versions.
Still need to have a proper look at training and tweak the tactics once the players are familiar with the formation to see what needs doing, but the 4-1-3-2 that I always try and use has worked fairly well so far.
