  1. Youtube Thread

    There's a fairly popular FM you tuber called stat app, who got involved in a controversy about using the editor on a popular series he started. He denied it at first, got presented with undeniable proof and eventually admitted it. His apology came across strongly like he was playing a victim in all of this, I'd love to hear from others who may have been following this situation. Also it looks like like several of you here have experience with recording gameplay for YouTube. I've been talking with the people I play on a modded minecraft server with, and we're considering recording a few sessions. None of them are particularly adept at this, so if I can get some suggestions for software to use that would be great!
  2. Ask Me Anything with Dec (until 06/12/15)

    Nice thinking. I'm sure you already know this, but just in case, other users can ask the admins for control of a sub if it remains inactive. There's a whole sub dedicated to people pinching other people's subs.

    I see you have an empty subreddit for vibe, any plans for it?
  4. If You Were In Charge...

    Following on from that, I'd have come here and done an ama, similar to the one miles did on Reddit for FM. As well as having a bit of banter with the biggest fans of the game, I'd have used the opportunity to have a real discussion about the games direction. If there's anyone to talk to about FMH, it's you guys on here.
  5. Football Manager or FMH?

    I'm buying FM next week. How much time are you talking, to complete a season? Say I want to micro manage every aspect of the club. Days? Weeks?

    Sure, the engine is bugged along with all the other bugs we've seen over the last couple of years. But I think the ai and its artificial difficulty is a seperate issue to that. Just throwing us curveballs that aren't based on stats, tactics or general skill at the game because it makes it look like there's more depth to the game than there actually is. Of course there's always a degree of luck to a football match, but I think the odds are stacked against us a lot of the time.

    The game stopped being fun for me and I stopped playing. 14 was bad, 15 sucked. If I didn't know better (I don't) I'd be saying that sometimes you're playing against the forces of God. You could play the first 10 matches of a season 1000 times, trying out 10 different formations. You'll still get completely random results, with the ai most likely coming out on top. I don't know if it was laziness, or the inability to make a realistic footy manager sim without using artificial difficulty (not actually difficult, just turning the odds against for no statistical reason), but I felt massively let down by si for the past two years. And that's just one side of my argument. Let's not forget that 14 and 15 were infested with bugs, to the point where there were prolonged periods of both games where we couldn't play properly, that's a product we paid for that we couldn't use as intended. Afaik there was no apology for that, I even remember one of the devs on here disputing a major bug that many of us had provided more than enough evidence for, being the paying (not paid) beta testers that we are. As far as I'm concerned, they've screwed up big time, for two years running, alienating some of the games biggest fans. Of course I'll buy 16, I've been supporting the series for a decade now, but I don't have high hopes. Hopefully I'll be able to write a good review for it, wether that's because we have a good game or because I was sent a free steam code for fm16 to do so (not even joking, my opinion can be bought), as long as it's one or the other then I'm happy. edit: formatting like we're on reddit...
  8. Very nice, that's £12 off of steams base price. How long is this offer available for?
  9. >some of you may or may not remember me I remember a cheeky little 12 year old giving all the mods grief In all seriousness, you've been playing since (guessing) 2010? That's a long time, and I bet you'll find the habit hard to break. The new changes sound promising. We've had a few years of garbage, but from what I can see, we should give this game a good chance to convince the likes of me and yourself to get back into it. Give it a go. And stuff your pocket money, you're old enough to get a job ;)
