I have played a short amount of this and I am blown away at how difficult the game has become… it is so complex. I think I am going to wait for the game to come down in price but I understand now why the price is so high.
The game has new depths and wealth of stuff to do, even for a hands-off manager like me. I don’t do training (probably missing out on some of the rewards of the game) but still there is so much more.
I played like five friendlies in the same time frame I would have completed the FM2017 6th month demo.
Buying players is so difficult now, still trying to get my head around the scouting/data analysts etc. The tree of happiness is already starting to wilt.
We are winning games but not well, team talks before, during and after matches are provoking little to no reaction - quite disheartening… always an awkward silence when I enter the dressing room.
I screwed up setting up the character as I could not find where to enter DOB so started the game as 23 yrs old and without a club as the demo did not allow me to select a team - had to retire and re-add a manager.
I think I will restart the game and pick a different team - Chelsea are just too hard to manage.
