2013-12-11 22:20#148855 Torpedo : I agree with all you who think that FM 14 is by far the most bugged FM game in the last perhaps 10 years. In addition to all the different bugs mentioned above, I also noticed a couple others which really irritate me.

Whoah... whoah, let's not get carried away. The first FM (not including CM) I played was 2007 and its match engine was downright dumb. My target man scored headers from outside the box on a regular basis. Tall target men was everything there. Nikola Zigic was insane there, along with Vincenzo Iaquinta and some other justifyingly underrated players in real life. Also, strikers with high speed, flair and dribble could just take the ball from the half and dribble all the way to score, again, on a regular basis. No other skills were needed. Decisions, composure, finishing and other important attributes for every striker were non-existant.
Things have got better, but for the cosumer we need games like championship manager, and fifa manager to increase and up their game so sports interactive do as well. Just basic principles I guess.

Also I think each year there are always work arounds or tactics that work better than others Its just an overhaul so maybe you can't have a master tactic everytime.

I for one, am not expecting a master tactic each year, where's the fun in that? There are some good things in this FM regarding the tactics which I enjoyed, for example: I played against a side who used a flat 3-5-2 and I played barca formation (not with barca) with the control mentality and hassle opponents. I then realized my wingers are not utilized properly in defense because they went pressing (along with my FC) the 3 opposition's DCs which forced their goalie to give the ball long to their midfield, where they outnumbered me. I switched to counter mentality and removed the hassling which forced them to play from the back, unable to crack my defense, giving me the possession again and again. Playing defensively (even against a weaker side) can sometimes make your team play better attacking-wise.

I always start the match with the same formation and instructions but I change during the game to what I see fit. Sometimes the match development requires drastic changes like changing a whole formation.

There are some good things about this FM but the game is far too broken for people to notice or to make anything out of it.

Well I do remember that 2007 version, where that target man thing was an anoying issue, however the bugs in fm 14 are worse in my oppinion, cause there are simple more of them and most of them are some really silly errors that dont have anything to do with footbal. As i mentioned in the rest of my post - dont know if you read it all - I hit the crossbar around 50 times in a season on direct free kicks. When did that ever happen in the real world? And that thing they do when they are supposed to make a cross? Those are just plain dumb programming errors.

Another thing we should keep in mind is, that 7 years have passed since that 07 version. Shouldn´t these kinds of epically silly errors be dealt with by now? I know that the errors are different from then to now, but the realisme didnt change that much and shouldn´t it be possible to make the game more realistic by now? I see what you mean, that 2007 version was quite anoying as well, but the things that happen in FM14 irritate me way more. I am not thrilled about this version at all, but I guess its a matter of opinion.

I was just stating that FM 2007 was awful. You're finding FM 2014 worse than 2007 simply because of the time SI had to improve that god awful 2007 match engine. It's much more annoying, true, but not it's not worse.

Other than that, I completely agree with you regarding the other topics, both crossing and direct free kicks. Players are rarely crossing the ball after they beat their man. Instead, they linger a while longer, moving weirdly near the line before doing something stupid or crossing the ball after the opposition had gone back to the box already to mark my players.

Like I stated at the beginning of this thread, I also rarely score from direct free kick and I now have a player with free kicks, long shots and technique at 20, 18, 18 respectively. Regarding the post/crossbars, I don't hit them as much with direct free kicks but I do hit them enough times in like a third of my total games to be asked the question in the press regarding the posts/crossbars. I hope SI would fix that bug where a player crosses the ball, the keeper doesn't move as if he thinks it's going out and the ball hits the crossbar. It never goes in, it's always the crossbar and the keeper never moves.

Also, these goals from long free kicks are really dumb when a player recieves a long ball and the opposition doesn't even hassle him, giving him all the time in the world to control the long ball and aim as he wishes without any pressure. The goalies are also not as good in these situations, it's like they're downgraded. The player who recieves the ball doesn't have to be strong or good in the air or even have a good first touch to win these balls, it just happens randomly regardless of your tactics, instructions or even defending free kicks instructions.
This game is a gift that keeps on giving...

No matter what team i play, i have super good CB FB or not
( or i use damn good tactic in forum or not)

in highlight they just let the opponent knock pass their to scoreable area
i even try to use sweeper and LB-cover They just fucking do the same so damn frustrating me ,

they alway push too higher up even if i set it as more deeper defensive
that cause of leaving back area easy to penetrate and that also cause of stupid do nothing CB FB in hightlight


(Close down yeah close your company down then)

FM2013 way lot lot better this true shit worse FM so far

i rarely see low cross and work ball into box(even i set them to try to shorter passing or my team & I just stupid ???)

Rating my CB mistake concede goal, and also kick the to own goal but yet his rating fucking damn normal, leaving my goalie cry alone *....*

And another damn stupid thing post team talk when i lose ,, argressive- they are not good enough

respond : motivated & fired up

next match they lose again then repeat this vicious circle for eternity

they hitcrossbar alot too much like if the crossbar is place to score i got 5-0 permatch

most confuse me is why my CB have to clear ball to opponent area at first highlight every time after kickoff they pass ball to CB and BOOOM CB clear long ball to opponent and out of highlight ( this is i confirmed happen to me every match) anyone have this



i missed my good time in FM 12-13.....so fucking more realistic


P.S : my oppinion is they should fix the defensive problem in highlight i cant just see my CB or FB walk around stupid do nothing get knocked pass every match

zombie may be chasing down opponent better than FB CB DM
Hi people, finding this fm14 really frustrating, started a league with Chelsea, hazard, mata, willian, schrulle all quality players but have no impact on the game at all, im playing them in their best positions and the return im getting back form them is shocking, hardly any assists,. played 3 season finished 3rd, 5th, 4th, did well in the champs league and fa cup but the premiership is the one you always want to win with a top 4 team. One season my centre half was my 2 nd top scorer, the amount of games in the 3 seasons that I was 2-0 up against mid to lower league teams and then ended up losing was scandalous. Was on an unbeaten run of 10 or so games, played bottom of the league and got stuffed my team didn't even look like they turned up, I know shocks happen in real life, but come on!!!


FM 13 I think was the better, if you had a quality team with quality players it showed, in FM 14 all the players look average, cb's not marking players when there instructions are set, advanced playmakers with play through balls set never seem to, full backs going missing, total bullshit games when you pick up 2 or 3 injuries, then a red card, opponents going down to ten men then looking like there unbeatable.

If you ask me fifa (EA sports) need to produce a footy manager game to rival sports interactive so they have to buck their ideas up and produce better every year rather than half arsed attempt like they have done this year

The game has reached a new low. It seems like my instructions mean nothing whatsoever. I might as well go on a holiday for a year and see how things are turning out.

My wingers just wouldn't defend. The only way they're doing defense is if I change my mentality to contain which would ultimately affect the team as a whole. I tried setting my wingers as defensive wingers but again, it had no effect. I'm talking about players with 15+ work rate. They just stand offside, making no movement at all. I also changed the fluidity to very rigid, asking them to be more dicsiplined. They seem to be doing whatever they feel like doing. This is either a bug, bad match engine (most likely) or maybe I'm just clueless.
First 5 games with the new patch - my guys have hit the woodwork only once!!! Could this mean that things are going to get better? :D
Im managing southampton and got them to the champions league after 3rd season and i have a should i say competitive line up but after the latest patch which happen during the 3rd season i lost and draw a lot which is kinda weird because in my first 2 seasons with the club i never lost 3 straight games and what makes me mad is i have this one game where i lead 5-3 against swansea and only 10 mins. left before the game is over swansea scored twice and even the score line which is 5-5 which made me delete my save game because i already instructed my players to slow down the game even went to defensive approach with a much defensive line, take a breather, be more disciplined and much lower tempo. I also have games where i got 20-25 shots on the goal and have a possession mostly 60% of the time but only scored once even though its a clear shot but somehow the opposing keeper saves it which is fine by me but the opposing team just shot around 4-7 shots and they scored twice even 3 goals which made me stand and shout on my sit. I love this game and been playing this game since fm 11 and i just bought the game last 2 weeks ago. One more thing the steam engine sucks big time i cannot download the official dark skin even though i already followed the instructions.
Football Manager 14 still not improve their match fixtures for Malaysia Super League. National team and club fixtures clash and my player need to play for their national team!!!!!!!!
a match gets to full time, it displays the full time scoreboard at the bottom, but then there is no continue option and the match continues to pan around the stadium, especially annoying when it happens in an fa cup semi final
Dominating the match with 67% Possession for the whole 90 minutes. At the end you score the winning goal and go over the moon, 5 seconds later they equalised. You feel like 'You defended brilliantly for the whole 90 minutes WHY CAN'T YOU DEFEND FOR SECONDS :@" so frustrating :s
Nero, even more frustrating when it happens after you pause in 90th+ minute with goal text still flashing, pull all the players back and set the most defensive formation possible, spend 10 minutes making sure they don't let anyone through.
