Yes! Messing around with Everton in the Beta and have had players shooting at goal from the bye-line, even though they are level with the post rather than pass to an open player in the box waiting for a tap in. I know players can be a bit greedy but seems ridiculous!

That's happened a lot in my Cincinnati save, pretty sure I've not seen a player (even ai) square a 2v1 yet.

Anyone else suffering crash dumps throughout the BETA? I've had 3 today alone, more than I probably had on FM19. It's bloody annoying!

I'm scheduled to face Schalke and this'll be the third time I have to play them as the previous two times I've suffered crash dumps - first time I won 4-1 and I was able to play one and a half more games before a dump occurred, the second time I was 4-1 up and suffered one during the game. It's irritating.

That's unfortunate! Thankfully I've not had any of those issues... yet.

I've not had any but you should report that to SI.

Negative sir, almost a season in and not had one.
Along with the crossing issue, anyone else having the problem of players repeatedly trying 60 yard passes across the pitch back and forth until the ball is lost? I'm asking you to play it Much Shorter that doesn't mean it takes a much shorter time to get there ya spanner.

Yeah it's another 'bug' that's been reported and hopefully fixed.

It seems other people have mentioned it to SI so at least I'm not alone.

Tbf I was just holidaying through and seeing what's what. Think early exits in the cups and first round of the cl probably didnt help

Finally found the time to buy, download and now play the Beta.

Took me half an hour to decide just now who to be though. Ended up with Birmingham. I believe their rancid.

Lets do this!

Sorry.

It does seem to be a common problem at the moment though.

That's just their fans!
Sometimes you have to stand in the shadows; to see the light.

There's little details that are off in National North so until I can fix them with the editor, I've decided to actually venture into the top flight with Bournemouth, ready for this to go about as smoothly as an old Golf on a cobblestone road..
Okay don't cancel friendlies I guess.. suppose we're not playing on those days everyone gets a holiday because I'm such a nice manager, let's act like it's not a cock up.

Yeah, also why can't I arrange my FT a friendly (either home or away) for the same day when my 2nd team or youth team plays..?
At first I thought they had clowned around big time before I took over and arranged just a bunch of FT friendlies against my own 2nd team and youth team for the entire pre-season. (Because why else would their games show in my FT schedule list?)

Is it an U23 friendly on that day?? They don't even play at the first team stadium so that's confusing as to why that'd stop us playing, have we only got one set of kits or something..
Well that's a good start in winning the fans over. Forgot who I was managing, signed a Southampton player and didn't click until the press conference mentioned it, can't wait for both me and Stuart Armstrong to be found dead in a ditch.
Anyone suffering from crash dumps (during matches) try turning replays off.

Oh my, had a good (benevolent) laugh reading this!
I had a save with the Montreal Impact. I really enjoyed how well FM20 is running. But in the MLS there is a lot of bugs at the moment, so I am waiting for a patch to fix the leagues bugs before I continue.

I've not tried a save in the MLS before but do you find it's kinda boring without the threat of relegation? Seems like you can get a league title and whatever cup North America has and that's about it
Are you talking in real life or in FM?

I normally play in the MLS 2 times : During the BETA and a second time at launch. Every time with Montreal Impact, my local team (and favorite team). But my normal FM save will always be a unemployed where I start very low.

In RL, of course I would love to see a real football pyramid here in north american (canada and US), but oh well...

I'm doing an MLS save myself, despite not knowing how the rules all work. Just out of interest, what are some of the bugs?

I'm with Cincinnati in MLS atm. I wouldn't say it's boring without relegation, but it definitely gives you more leeway - I was bottom of my conference for ages but had no threat of a sacking.

Tempted too but I know as soon as I do I'll start encountering bugs! Have to hold out for full release. Interested to see how challenges are going to be run this year here too.

Meanwhile in my Beta save as Everton, just got to mid December and Spurs have sacked Pochettino and sit in tenth place. Wonder if it will happen irl!
Sometimes you have to stand in the shadows; to see the light.

I wonder if it has to do with the game being beta, but I've found that some underdogs I'd be interested to manage have an over-ambitious board, which deters me from taking the job and makes me instantly look for a less stressful working environment.
Example: Leyton Orient have just made it back into Football League Two and are tipped to end up last by the media and pundits. I am eager to prove them wrong and as I'm about to shake hands with the chairman they go: "So Tommy, we are in agreement that playoff spot is minimum this year, right?" I excuse myself, lock the restroom door after me, splash some water on my face, keep calm and panic. Fortunately there's a big enough window high up the wall, leading to the parking area.
I gracefully fall on a bed of flowers, dust myself off and make it off in my trusty old VW Jetta. Back home the missus and my daughter greet me at the door. My wife excitedly asks me how the job interview went. I shrug. "Eh, it just wasn't meant to be."

I've not really had any problems, nothing that makes it unplayable anyway.

Also some good news for the full release.

Firstly, we would like to thank everyone for their feedback on our Beta version of the match engine, especially those who uploaded PKM's for us to review. The reason we ask for PKMs is that every decision a player makes is based on a incredible number of variables, meaning that each case is unique in their own way. This means that specific examples are incredibly useful for the development team. When testing improvements, we can replay certain decisions and events in our updated Match Engines and see if it is still happening.

Understandably this is an extremely busy time for us so we've been unable to reply to each thread individually. But we want to assure everyone each individual thread gets read, even if they don’t get a specific reply. It’s a very important part of our development process to look at your feedback and examples when looking at how we can move forward.

The beta feedback this year has been very helpful and productive, and the main concerns raised fortunately matched up with what we believed to be the main issues internally and we have been working hard on some good improvements. It’s good to know that we were on the same page as you guys and we strongly believe that the release version of the ME is going to be the best we’ve ever released.

To give you guys an idea of the kind of work that has been going on – we have been working around the clock analysing the main issues we have and working out how we can make them better. We have had over 10 different internal MEs since the beta has gone out that all have required intensive testing and analysis. This is a substantial amount of work and is testament to how passionate and hard working the development team are. Working on the ME is incredibly difficult, there’s so many variables and decisions being made that even a small change to tweak e.g. long shots balance can have drastic effects elsewhere in the game. This means that it can be a very difficult balancing act to get things just right, but we are convinced that there’s a much better balance overall in the release ME that we think will be noticeable and enjoyable.

This doesn’t just apply to the match AI either, there are also many improvements to the graphics, art and animation that we are excited for you guys to see.

Thank you all for your feedback!

We all hope you continue to enjoy your saves and love playing FM2020

Match Team
