FM16
29-06-2016, 10:07 AM
Loaded it up for the first time in ages last night. Had great fun.

I installed a skin. Chose my nations. Chose my club. And that was it. Starting to think that might be the part of the game I enjoy most these days. I could browse clubs for hours trying to decide between preferences on badges, kits, nicknames, stadium names etc.

I have just put FM12 back on the PC after getting annoyed with FM16 and the issue I had with my last save. I feel FM 16 is just a little too much now.

I prefer the simplicity of FM12, the tutoring is miles better

That's a shame really, I haven't had that kind of save failure with FM16 and I have played over 700h.

Started three careers since 29/06 and have genuinely enjoyed creating them more than playing them. I can no longer read the match engine or understand tactics. The roles and instructions don't seem to do what I expect them to at even the most basic levels. I've just lost a match 4-0 where we conceded an own goal, a freak goal, a penalty and a goal from a cross. We didn't have a shot in the entire match. I know this isn't impossible but too many games seem to go this way and I can't put my finger on the 'why' it happens. We have possession, we move the ball forward and with purpose - retaining possession but not possession for the sake of it. And nothing comes of it.

I just don't get the tactics and ME at all anymore Sad

I haven't been able to enjoy FM16 either and I have some of the same complaints as you. Sometimes we're winning more than we should, sometimes we're losing in weird ways, and at the end of the day I'm not able to figure out why. When did SI last introduce a new match engine? FM13? I'm wondering about going back to a previous edition and starting a new career but I kind of wanna avoid the current engine. Also going back to how training used to be with a lot more options etc would be preferable.

Edit: Or to ask a more useful question, what's the best engine in terms of realism, feedback to changes made etc?

I think there's potentially so much to enjoy about FM16. I've just played another match and lost 4-2. Dominated it and played some nice football too. But I can't understand why we don't score. We have shots (11 in the match), a good number are on target (8) and a reasonable number of CCCs are created (3). We were better than our opponent in all these fields. Likewise possession (62%) and a number of other areas. If I could read the ME I think we would have won the match comfortably, as it is two defensive errors in the first 10 minutes (it happens) have cost us a point in a game we should have probably won.

After 7 matches we have scored 4 goals. Only one is from open play. We've conceded 14, almost all from open play or corners. My team and tactic aren't that bad I'm sure.

Purchased FM16 from CD Keys for £11.99. Waiting for it to download. I wonder how long it will be before I am frustrated by it Mrgreen

The downloading wait? 15 mins? Mrgreen

FM16 is the best version since 13 I think, though 13 has a better match engine IMHO.

There was a new FM16 update on steam yesterday. Kind of an unusual date for an official update. Anyone know what it was? Couldn't find any patch notes on steam.

Steam workshop and social media connection issues. Just that according to SI's official patch thread.

Just purchased FM16 so it must have been the bugger up Soulfusion's enjoyment patch!

Best to wait for the sales these days Soul. I will not be buying a FM again until the 50% discount stage. I am enjoying FM16 as an overall game, but I do miss the 13.3 match engine. There are some things about 16 that feel unbalanced. I wish SI would sell seasonal transfer updates for older versions but I guess they worry that nobody would buy the new version Smile
