Yeah this game definitely deserves its own thread. It comes out Nov. 2nd, talk about your team and/or story in here if you want. Discuss strategies and whatever you want about the best soccer simulator.
Summer updates suck... they don't make sense to me. Heck, January updates suck too. Why would a team have a player from July who wasn't in their team till January.
Take Djibril Cisse for example. He was a Panathinaikos player till mid July. He moved to Lazio and then was transferred to QPR on the last day of the winter transfer period (January 31st).
This player starts at QPR in the FM2012 which starts in June/July. Makes no sense at all.
If these "updates" had future transfers rather than what they have now, then it'd be much much better for the game.
2014-2015 Atalanta: Won the League and Italian Cup. Lost in the Semis of the CL, I got crushed by Arsenal 7-1 on Aggregate . I won the league by 1 point but I had it wrapped up after week 37 though. Beat Milan in the IC final 2-0. Consigli, Mollo, and Cerci named to the Serie A team of the season. Gonna try and win the CL with them next season and then move on to a new league probably.
goal this game: bring a D2 team to D1 and not get fired 2 seasons in .
The only way to avoid this is by undercutting your expectations every time it's offered to avoid delivering on placement promises to the board. It's dumb, especially when you are at a top-flight club, but most clubs require you to exceed promises regularly. (The only exception is becoming a legend at the club - then you're set for life if you want)
I'm looking forward to bringing Bolton back up to prominence. I hope their wages are massively messed up in the beginning of the game. Having to sell players the second you start to bring wages under control and then building back up is some of the most satisfying managing in the game.
