    Start November release date. 'New features' videos have started trickling in.

    I'm quite excited this year. Last year was a disappointment. I would've given it a miss but I had already jumped over FM 16.

    I just want it to be smooth. FM 17 is still to jerky, and boring. Though I liked the Social Feed.

    FM 17's "new features" were pretty pointless for me. I've used the social media stuff once or twice, it hasn't added anything to the game and the new staff roles they introduced had no impact on how you manage your team.

    The new team dynamics stuff looks interesting.

    Not a massive fan of the new tactics screen and they got rid of the old 2D classic view :(

    did they? I think they had kept that in according to the streams I saw.

    Ill get mine as soon as they release it.

    There's still a "2D classic" option but it looks different now. Not a massive fan of it.

    Probably going to be the first time in years I won't be buying this. Thought last years upgrade was minimal but seems they haven't really done much this year either. None of the animations do anything to me because I always use 2D regardless and now they seem to have messed that up too ffs

    Same here mate, I generally skip over every other year as the improved features generally are of little worth. Unless someone on here plays it and changes my mind I doubt I'll go for this one unless I see a good deal a few months down the line.

    Simulation games always not worth spending 40-50 euros I just download the pirated version. Until football manager improves their graphics and their 3d engine then it worth paying the money.

    I don't last beyond 3-4 seasons.

    Gets too unrealistic beyond that.

    What I hate in this game sometimes that big times buy very good players for like 40-50M then play them about 10 games a season then sell them for 10-15M :lol:

    I think we expect simulation from FM, and it's not a simulator. It's just a spreadsheet/stat game.

    You mean big clubs?

    I agree it's the stupidest thing. It's ends up being unfair for them because they end up transfer listing quality players with an asking price of next to nothing.

    I've brought in so many good players doing just that. The game is broken when it comes to that.

    Does it not follow real life, though?

    $ity had three teams at one point. They still have some of the biggest (former) prospects that they just bought and forgot.

    It feels like it's happening on a bigger sale on FM.

    I'll give you an example. I was managing Everton and Besic was in cracking form so Madrid came calling. Now, Besic is obviously not good enough for Madrid but I realised that whilst he was at his peak I could sell him for a good price, relative to the player Besic is. I end up selling him to Madrid for 25M and literally by the time that winter window had come around, he was already on the periphery of the team and therefore unhappy. He ends up being transfer listed by the end of the season for just above 1/4 of the price I had initially sold him for.

    I suppose you could argue that that's happened because I've artifically boosted Besic's performances but even then you'd have clubs transfer listing quality players with substantial potential. I remember Monaco transfer listed Bernardo Silva who I bought for peanuts and he was an incredible player for me, ended up selling him to arsenal for around the same price as Besic and the same thing happened, they just left him in the reserve squad.

    Yeah but sometimes they end up buying too many talented players without playing them I hope FM fix this issues

    i hear you. the internet is full of complaints about this.

    I read somewhere that AI managers pick/buy players based primarily on performance, and not necessary on potential.

    i heards it's very hard to do.

    Am hearing the game is very bad this year. Big steps backwards and they were full of **** promoting a new graphics engine, looks worse than 17. They need to **** that Miles **** off and get someone in who knows how to design a game.

    I don't care about the graphics. Game was never about that. What are the other areas that they took big steps backwards, though?
