News EXCLUSIVE! Scouting updates in FMM2017

Posted by

Today we are very exciting to reveal a feature for Football Manager Mobile 2017 exclusively on http://Vibe.Community . We have worked with Sports Interactive to unveil this feature and without further ado we can say that it is... Improved scouting.

 

Feature 1 - Real Scouts

There are now hire/fire real scouts in Football Manager Mobile 2017 with different staff specialisms including Bargain Hunter, Tactical Analyst, First Team and Youth Scout. You can see past assignments with recommendation levels and current assignments. There's also staff levels with badges - the same as coaches.

 

Feature 2 - Setting assignments

As with Football Manager Mobile 2016 you can set assignments by region then by youth. You can now say which scout you want to do the assignment, thus giving you more control to better utilise your staff and get reliable reports.

 

Feature 3 - Viewing Assignments

There's a handy assignment list where you can view all reports, see how many days they have been scouted for and their CA/PA/Value or even narrow down by which scout has looked at them.

 

Feature 4 - Better reports

Reports have had an overhaul including seeing player interest, estimated cost and wage demands. As well as this you can see positives and negatives rather than just a simple line and this reveals more about the player depending on the coach's ability. They also give more information on the report screen saving you precious time when you are scouting for that vital player.

 

What do you think of this new feature? Leave it in the comments below.

The important question is how do you search/hire scouts? Can you search them at all? If so by medel or trait? Can former players become scouts?

Is all that info for the scout now also included for coaches?

Seems a good inclusion that will make scouts worth using :)

Sounds nice! But that you can now hire scouts will only be a good addition if they are really different from each other unlike the coaches in fmm16

I will reserve judgement until I see this in action but initial thoughts are, this is just 17s version of Coaches and it may not be as good as it seems. 

Glad SI recognises Vibes place and allowed this site to reveal the news.

I think we all joked about 2017's big feature being hireable scouts after 2016's release haha.

The scouting looks great, the pro /con lists will be useful for potential signings from Poland and Turkey

I knew the wait was justified. 

Signing players is such a core feature and this looks like a great step forward in discovering players that are real value.

Props to Vibe staff for exclusive announcement.

Brilliant. This is exactly what we need. Very excited for the release now. It's going to feel like we have much more control over signings and the club in general now. Well done SI!

My question is Would the report dissappear after a while? Because I played fmm16 mostly with the attribute masking on and after scouting players you can see their but if you go to same player after like 2 months you can't see those stats again which doesn't make sense because I've already scouted the player

From screen shots, I feel a little dispointed about new feature about scouting system.

In the report, the positives and negtives are both no value. We can get same conclusion from player's attributes.

If we can see report for hidding attributes, this will really help us to know a player. For example, big match, consistency...

This is a thing. Just depends on if it is noteworthy

 i think it a nice add i see can see why people are saying it could be same as coaches. However  if the fee is corrrect the scout comes back with because in all honesty u can just search players urself so we need a reason to want to use these scouts but hope it works and improves the game and a novelty we bored of by christmas.

Good scouts will be able to dig to a certain extent into hidden attributes if they are notable.

If it works well in a practical sense then I think we are onto a winner.  The scouting element in FMM16 is very poor so if this is going to be as good as it looks then it's a great addition.

Good addition in my opinion. Specially the estimated cost.

I think its a good addition after being so frusturated with the silence.Also scouting had a big part in game with no consistency or any sense.Looking forward to it.

Hopefully there will be a dramatic improvement in this area , especially for those wanting a  bit more realism and actually use scouting rather than searching for players by just putting in the attributes you require for a player in the player search.

I can find good players by myself with the arributes...so this new scouting system seems useless...only care about the change of the tactics and the AI, hoping it will be awesome.LOL~

Hmm not sure how I feel about this. Hopefully SI has put enough work behind it to make it more worthwhile to scout than before. If its just the same reports as of the past but in a prettier page, then we'd still have to resort to manual searching for signing new players. 

So far seems like it does more than the old scouting system (showing estimated transfer cost and wage) but if it does report hidden attributes (more than the usual injury proneness/set piece and penalty taking skill) then it would be terrific.

Hopefully this isn't the biggest feature and that there'll be improvements to tactics and training after this.
