    Lillywhite Dean reacted to Marc Vaughan in Winter Update   
    Just to indicate - there will be another update to FMM19 yet, I'll indicate details when its coming up to its release. I don't see continuing to tune 19 as being detrimental to 20 as obviously one will build on the other and I want as many people as possible satisfied with our games

    I apologise for not having posted much recently but (1) I'm working on the (hopefully) final update for FMM19 and FMM20 features, (2) My girlfriend has been having health issues so I've have been spending more time in hospitals than we'd like which unfortunately gets in the way of important things like posting on forums

    In terms of new leagues I would love to see a couple of South American leagues (Argentina and Brazil) as I think it would need both to make the continental competitions more interesting. In that same vein Mexico would be great as well as it will enhance the NACL making MLS more interesting as well. I think that would give a good coverage of world leagues in the game although any new Euro ones would be good as well.

    Out of interest who were you playing as? Man City are a huge draw for a lot of players and unless you're a top top side, I can see why some players would want to leave for them.

    You don't need to keep my happy. You write whatever you want to write. 
    I like your "SI poms poms" dig. And I admit, I have been a bit of a SI Cheerleader of late. But it's only because some of the criticism levelled at SI on here has been really harsh or just ridiculous.
    But that's just my opinion.

    This thread seems to be becoming an excuse for people to wind each other up and not actually discuss the subjects that the thread was started for.
    The next comments after this need to be related to the Winter update otherwise I will consider the subject finished and close the thread.

    I think he's entitled to vote in the poll, as he's a member of this site. Of course he will vote for his opinion, which is obviously going to be aligned to the way the game is, but it's only one vote and he's entitled to it. If he was getting all his mates to sign up just to vote for his side, that would be out of line, but I've seen no evidence of that. 
    Not sure about there in the UK, but here in Australia politicians can vote for themselves...  Can't see how this is any different.
    As for the rest of what you say about Marc, personally I think it's great he even comes to this site at all. He doesn't have to and half the time his company is getting bagged to shit, which can't be easy. I wouldn't blame him if he never came here at all. And there's plenty of other games / software / services / whatever where you don't get any access to the people who make it. I reckon he's showing respect to this community just by showing up.
    For what it's worth, I totally agree that the latest version is way too hard with the conditioning. I think they got that wrong big time. But that doesn't mean Marc's doing anything wrong or showing a lack of respect...

    You said coaches do nothing yet people have proven that having a motivational coach helps training teamwork and fitness coaches help a little bit with the fitness level of the squad

    I'm going to abstain in the poll. Shit, it really is getting like BBC Parliament here
    i honestly don't really notice much difference (now I'm on the most recent update). This may be because I'm a simpleton. It may be because my first child (now nearly two) has totally destroyed my memory. 
    But I think it might be because it suits how I play the game. I was never an elite on here, never did a 100-goal season or a 1kc, wondered how you did it. Now maybe I see So while it's quite possible that I wasn't maximising my ability before, now it seems the game has shifted towards my style anyway. Nice!
    Who knows, still inconclusive. But honestly can't say it was better before or after. I enjoy it anyway, which is why I found comments of "fucked" and "unplayable" so weird (to me).
    Anyway, that's my vote cast - or not, actually

    @Lillywhite Dean I’ve been following a lot of your issues with FMM that you have posted to the SI forum over the years and I think this conditioning thing is the first time I’ve not agreed with tbf and I totally understand your interest in it as, like Ive said previously, it’s something you’ve been pushing for for a while so ofc you have a vested interest in this. 
    I agree with this aswell. I’ve been making an effort recently to make sure what I write is clearly just my opinion.
    Why doesn’t one of the mods make a pinned thread with a poll to see where we’re at in terms of numbers for and against. Maybe use the straw poll site instead of an imbedded poll to get a bigger vote (as so many vibe users lurk as guests). Strawpoll.com is a good one to use as it’s pretty decent at stopping multiple votes from the same IP address.

    Nah I just don't want to be voiceless. Because if people like me, Mr Tree and Dean don't speak out then SI will just think that everyone 100% hates the update. While in reality the actual split between people who like the update vs those who don't like it is more like 30-70(hell even that number might not be accurate because we don't know what the people who haven't commented think about this whole thing). 
    Imagine if there weren't people like me. SI would come on here and just see that everyone hates the update...

    While I do admit that the whole discussion is starting to sound repetitive and pointless, I don't think its entirely useless yet. 
    And there are no hidden agendas here, you might be getting slightly paranoid here... We are only debating and arguing back and forth because we are genuinely not 100% happy with the game in it's current state.

    I always try and ensure that the game is fun to play - however for many people part of that fun comes from it being reasonably realistic ... 

    I'm hardly 'telling people to suck it up' - I'm trying to communicate my thoughts and the reasoning behind the decisions which have been made and to tweak things to a stage where the maximum amount of people can enjoy the game.

    I realise it may be you aren't at present - however your statistics imply is that you will need to 'rotate' for every single match, in practice during my play I only really need to rotate in extreme circumstances, basically where I have games in quick succession .. now if you're Man City this might happen more frequently than some clubs, but for me its not 'every' match and before Christmas I rarely have to rotate my squad more than minimally (normally I'll play kids in Cup matches). 

    If you are finding things different to this please let me know and throw me a save game or two to examine.

    PS - I've played probably 100+ seasons in the game with this years version including one start -> finish 30 seasons, two bottom division to top division and various 'test cases' but obviously there are millions of possibly styles of play and teams so I'm happy to take feedback and saves where possible.

    No I won't tell you to stop playing your wingbacks - but you might want to give one of them a game off now and again, most of the big teams do some sort of rotation during the season to try and ensure during 'heavy' fixture periods that players get rest, you can see this most commonly during League Cup matches or matches against smaller sides where someone might be left out of the squad entirely or start on the bench.

    I'm guessing from your comments that your tactic is fairly intensive - can I ask whether you're using committed tackling and pressing? ...

    (also I'd be happy to take a save just before your tumultuous run of games and play it through to see how 'bad' things are for you - but in all honesty I'd expect some tired legs out there, anyone in the 90's is definitely playable, 80's will take a bit of a performance hit but still be alright if they're good enough (and if they're not that great why aren't you rotating them?).

    To give a real life example (stats etc. taken from BBC website) demonstrating that some rotation (and most vitally early subs) is commonly done in real-life if there is fixture congestion.

    (and no I don't want to make the game into a chore - but equally it should feel realistic and challenging imho and if you're in all competitions in the way Man City are in real-life then having to consider rotating a little is to be expected imho, the game tries to make this relatively simple you can save two distinct squad selections down and load one up, simply remove/add a specific player or two or if you're really lazy just clear and ask your assistant to pick your squad, tweaking it afterwards ... none of these options should take more than 15-30 seconds in my experience)
    Man City squad before their last Champions League second Leg:
    Their squad for the second leg itself when they won 7-0 ..

    I've said numerous times Ash that you make fair points, BUT, I think you do leap to slightly excessive conclusions (IMHO).
    For example, i push up and press all over and overload if needed. But not all the time. So those options aren't removed, you just have to choose your moments, and you can't exploit them as previously (agree with what you say re: match engine).
    To get boring and real-life, one of my favourite bees teams was under Martin Allen in 2006 (maybe, god, that long ago?). We were 2nd or 3rd all season before running out of steam and losing in the playoffs. And see, that was MA - he played every bloody game like a cup final. So when they really really mattered, we didn't have another level to step up to.
    I don't think you need a big squad either. Just two for every position. That's pretty normal though, right? You can always get an injury. But check my Torquay squad in that example again - it's only about 21 players. My own stupid fault, I've left myself a bit short in defence, but still, it's hardly excessive.
