sorry if this is about but i could find a post similar

What are people general opinions on Fm13???

i do like it in general, but i feel some aspects now seem cluttered with too much information into one screen for example the match play screen, or a players information screen, the postioning box is a little too small.

training for me as always been my weak point when it comes to fm series and i have been playing since 1998, but i think this one now is the most complicated when it comes to match pepration

there are many good things i like aswell, head of youth, director if i want one, traveling between pages is alot quicker now which is a massive improvement on last year, transfer and loan system seem alot better especially for youth development

i think really its just all new and eventually i get use to it like evry other year

anyways chow (sorry for poor english, i am english, just stupid)
The game has improved overall, but I think the GK and defense are less smarter than last years' edition. My goalkeeper stood out of the box for like 2 mins with the ball in front of him so my opponent took the ball away and scored. Also, I noticed how easy it is to score by crossing the ball to the far post while doing a run, their defenders(and yours too)can't seem to mark well.
Come there for FM13 new Facapacks? Or are those of FM12 also available for FM13?

PS:Sorry for my English but I'm from Belgium;-)
Hate the new training system... I used to set up my own trainingprograms, but that is no longer possible, also I feel that I'm doing something wrong regarding the match preparation, I don't quiet understand it! The trabsfers are much better now as you cannot buy anyone on 48 months pay-off for the same price as the pay-now-price, it's much more real now! But I am also having a bit problems in my defence... started a save with Pool, a cannot seem to have a clean sheet no matter what.. my wondertactics from previous fm-games is not working as their supposed too... Liked FM12 better :(

I'm having the same problems here, I guess we will have to adapt. About the defense, do they seem to stop when they are marking someone, and other times they just let the oponents go through them?

Same problems here too. My defence slips up all of a sudden. Letting players run past them, and even at times just stop marking a run they were following. Extremely frustrating at times
First impressions were that the interface was both too cluttered and too simplified. It feels like they've gone too far towards the mobile app style of stuff, but now that I'm more used to it I like it.

They've removed the deselect all players from the player choice page, which annoys me, and they still haven't fixed the way the three prepared tactics thing works. You should be able to prepare three tactics, and then have a separate tactic that is currently in use, but not being trained. That way you can switch without it messing up like it does now at times. Hate the training too, much less control and much more confusing, especially for match preparation.

Some of the little touches are really nice, I love the little coloured outlines when you're dragging a player on the tactics pitch that show how good they are in each position, really helps when tweaking tactics to suit your players.

Overally pretty good so far, just hope a few little things (especially the leaky defences) will be fixed.
To be fair don't judge the game completly yet, judge it when the final copy comes out. All of these glitches/bugs could be fixed by the time the game comes out. As this isn't the final product and therefore cannot be considered to be as such.

Completely agree, though since it's a beta I'd hope they'd listen to some feedback!

I've found a pretty conspicuous bug just now, anyone else noticed this:

I left the game running (fullscreen mode) while taking the dog for a walk, and the pc went into sleep mode while I was gone. When I logged back in, that screenshot is all I could see. When I clicked where I knew some buttons should be, some of the page started working again, but it didn't completely fix itself until I restarted the game.

It's not a big deal, and it's to be expected in a beta, it's just a shame that we're allowed to play it but don't get a chance to report the bugs we find. This one could scare a lot of people who know less about computers because it looks really bad, but should be pretty easy to fix.

Like I said, it's looking good so far, just a few bugs and glitches and it'll be great!
My thoughts are similar to JoeyRaptors. The interface is both cluttered and to a degree, complicated yet at the same time too simple. I think with some screens that some of the less significant information can be given too much space when more important information is not given enough.

There's plenty of new features to feast on and I for one am learning something new everytime I put the game on. That can be annoying but it comes with the territory of playing a new game. No matter what your ability is on previous versions, this is a new product and a new kettle of fish.

Obviously it isn't the final product and these things can and probably will be tweaked according to comments that SI games get. However, I do enjoy it and think that like with FM2012, I will be putting way too many hours into it.
Boring. Broken and above utterlly unrealistic. I've been playing against Barcelona-like teams week in week out. evefry opposition player seems to have 20 at 1st touch, decisions, creativity, passing... It doesn't matter if you're facing Stoke or the Spanish National Team you will get passed to death!!
Oh, last but not the least, marking or tackling seem to be foreign concepts to the game...
It plays well and works for me like any fm. The updates on steam appear to have solved the crashes for me so far. I think its better than fm2012 at the moment.

So far I hate it and feel cheated for wasting money on it.
And the new training...duh.

Edit: Do you guys get the report at 1st of a month about income, expenditure, confidence and so?

Edit2: I'm managing a semi-prof bsb north team. They tend to score an amazing amount of fouls, it feels like I'm having a bunch of roberto carlos in squad. Also, I don't have a rest option in training, which was not the case in previous FMs for semiprofs as far as I can recall.
For me this is the best game ever!
I have found some annoying features, (bugs), like when you give your over all team talk then talk to one person individually it can wreck your entire talk,this is stupid because its meant to be individual.
For example you can be playing well at half time and 9 of your players score from 6.7 - 8.5 but the other 2 are 5.6 - 6.3 so you say to them personally,it can be anything, your unlucky,i'm unhappy, I have faith,it doesn't matter and half the other 9 immediately switch to red.Lost confidence,lost focus,whatever.

Also it does the same if you bring more than 1 sub on at the same time.Also leaderboards are totally broken for me,i got 80 points from my first game and am on season 2 with 80 points still while other people have over 1 million points,stupid.

I have also played 50-60 games and not a single penalty has been awarded for either side or a single red card. This needs fixing!
