This game is too annoying!!!!!!
I thought I sussed the game out. I am Fiorentina and the defending is ridiculous. If the left/right back doesn't stop the cross coming in, its probably a goal. The defenders do not attack the ball, their positioning is awful and when they do intercept it they barely get the ball clear and the opposition gets the rebound. My players are always last to the ball and never make a tackle. I remember in one game Giacherrini (wrong spelling) that plays for Juventus destroyed my left back every single time and set up or scored a goal. It doesn't make sense to me. The defending is crrrrrrrap. Not realistic at allllllll. Another thing I don't get is if I don't play 4 5 1 I will be exposed. If I try to push players higher up the pitch im doomed. Anyone else having these problems??????? AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

I have the same problem. I play with Valencia. Goals from free kicks, scored from a corner. All received goals are simply unrealistic and too easy. My players like they do not exist. I am very disappointed, I pay, I get crap: ((((.

I have installed 13.2.2. last patch

You should both give up and stop playing probably.
Taterz Feb 1, 2013 @ 11:59am 
Majere you need to pull your head out of the sand.
I've played every FM game that has ever been made, blah blah life story let me keep this short.
Football Manager 2013 is a joke. Play a match on '13, then load up your 12' and play a match on there.
If you find '13 a more enjoyable game experience, you should just give up Majere. There is obvious reasons that fm12 boards are full and a minor few hopefuls still play '13

Your right. I guess I am not sure, if you feel that way, why posting angry attacks in a message board that obviously nobody cares about or reads, is pretty useless waste of your time. Quit and go back to 2012 and we can all be happy.

I happen to enjoy 2013 and many many other people do as well.

You stuck your ♥♥♥ in his comments. Read the comments of other players and you will see that they too have the same problem. Only if you've got another problem with you. Every year we wait for the patches to the game can be played normally. Pay and then you get ♥♥♥♥ and then you find to comment. Better play at home in the sand. : P

yup, it looks like its only thing left for whiners, who cant be asked to learn how to play again, cause they played FM since some carpenter called himself son of god, and cant comprehend that maybe they need to change their style of playing...

HUH??? You ever hear of the squeaky wheel syndrome? People that enjoy the game don't post. People that hate everything, do post, even though they are the minority. Look at the amount of units solds, and divide that by the amount of complaint posts and you will see that you are very much in the minority. If you need help, just ask. Many people, all have great things to help with, with varing styles and strategies. There were some issues at first release that required tweaking, and there have been patches that have done that. I am very happy with the currently patch at the moment. If you are confused, why your "downloaded AI beating tactics" are failing, it is because they reworked the match engine and the computer is not so stupid now. If you learned to play and understood why and what happens for what reason, you would understand the game is not broken. Your inability to figure out how to use your team is. But again, people here will help. Just ask.

Honestly you think the match engine on 2013 is better than previous years? You guys have to be kidding.

I think there was many great little touches added on 2013, purely the game is let down by a TERRIBLE match engine, and some technical tweaks eg. after transfer windows other teams turn in Barcelona standard when they sign a few players.

I am not whining about fm13, i was putting across some points I assumed would be obvious to other gamers who have enjoyed previous versions... Obviously not :)
Majere Feb 2, 2013 @ 8:32am 
I guess that is why there is Vanilla and Chocolate Ice cream :)

Taterz, I'm with you mate.

And having like 8 injuries at a time is just a coincidence right!... Also losing against an amateur team with no real players... they have like 60% possession, pretty unrealistic to me. Really, if you've got a good team it should be easy to win games. Im just clicking continue and there it is, suddenly 3 players are injured in training.. that is just bollox. I'm a footie fan but I just can't enjoy fm13 the same way I did fm12 with all these unrealistic stuff in it.

Just recently started playing but until now, FM13 seems beter than FM12. I've played like 15 games and had no trouble with injuries(1 injured atm). Also, the defense is stellar, unbeaten in 10 consecutive games with Millwall.

You do know that when other teams sign better players it makes the team better???? do you not see what happens after the tranfer window in real life??? when teams get a boost ect even when a new manager come into a team they get a boost

The best part of your post is am not whining..... yes you are

I'm having mixed experiences, but it is very frustrating when the game seems to be conspiring against you. I somehow managed to get to the fa cup final and saved the game before the match because intended to cheat and replay the game if i lost, I was Liverpool had a great team with isco nem gerrard suarez borini henderson allen etc etc great league form, after a weak start in the league hit a good run and was making a title challenge. My opposition was aston villa and they were in 12th place, I expected to win first time tbh but i got stuffed 4-1... so i replayed and got beat 3-0, so i replayed and tried different about a dozen different formations and my best result was getting beat 2-1. Now I don't care what anyone says the outcome of that match was fixed before kick off which makes me think all the "tweaking" and opposition scouting is a waste of time, and its not the match engine that determines results but some random result generator in the background
