    Of course it is. Exactly as I had in the OP... without having to go back and edit it.



    So the announced features don't do a ton for me, but I'm a bit intrigued. They had a couple of developers from SI on the 5 Star Potential podcast a couple of weeks back and they didn't get too detailed, but they explained a bit. I think the Development Center is going to be good info for the average FMer but not really anything new for someone who is already more detailed and attentive to the young players in their club. the Club Vision feature didn't interest me much when it was announced but their explanation of it made me much more interested. Basically, they talked about how its a 5 year plan for the club with specifc expectations, but based on the club, its board, etc. So If you are taking over the worst club in the Prem, they might not be expecting anything more than stabilize in the Prem by the end of the 5 years, but they will have other requirements - sell players for profit, use the club academy, play a certain style, etc. Its not really entirely NEW, but a new and more impactful way of applying expectations.

    I don't think the minimum specs are going up. And if they are, it won't be by much. You should be okay.

    Didn't buy last years because I was still enjoying 2018, but I'll definitely be getting this years version. Maybe for Christmas

    That's a pretty cool way to do it. couldn't log on cuz I was at work.

    Does sound like some viewers were being dicks, though. That's always fun.

    Imagine a community of football x gamers being healthy Its not a great venn diagram.

    The additions this year dont have me PUMPED but FM19 was a big step forward (for me) so thats understandable. Im just waiting for the beta reveal date officially so I can go ahead and grab this.

    This is very true, Jon. Sadly. Lot of toxicity in both fansets, and the overlap isn't necessarily an ideal one.

    After what I have (ahem) seen so far.... The graphics engine look is a bit sharper. Not notably, but its not a step back in my opinion. newgen faces is a big step forward. The Development Center will be a game-changer for some and a consolidation of data that was already being looked at for others. But the Club Vision thing is going to be a bigger impact on saves, I think. And its going to be an element that makes different saves with different clubs feel different.

    If it makes it any better, the alpha build is rarely properly playable. You can't get into a save because they update at least twice a week and every third update or so isn't compatible so the save is done.

    I've been fucking around on it. Haven't started a save properly yet. Generally its safe to start a save on the beta because most patches allow saves to continue. But not guaranteed. Even if you just mess around on a throwaway save, you can start to get used to some of the new features.

    Re: Football Manager 2020

    Talk to me about your game BP.

    Started my file with my friend. Going Serie A this year (last year it was Bundesliga and he wrekt me with RB while I was Leverkusen. He won two titles and I won 1, with Dortmund getting the other one). Picked up Brescia and they've got me playing possession football with Balotelli. Going to get a full black team going for that sweet sweet apolitical crowd reaction <3 Need to become a top half team by my third season and establish that position by the end of the 5th year. First year I get to fight bravely against relegation tho.
