FM Genie Scout has always been the world's favorite scout utility for Football Manager since its very first version.
We pride ourselves on exclusively releasing this legendary tool since 2009. As always we try our best to deliver Genie Scout to the world every year because your support to this project is outstanding.
Besides the "g" only features that already exist, Eugene is preparing a major new feature for Genie Scout 18g, providing in-depth player development knowledge based on the history of thousands of games.
That's pretty exciting, right?
