    Hey, you still alive?

    Yes, I am!

    That's good!

    I bought FM 2020 and for the past week it's basically all I've done. Have you been into it recently? Talking about FM is always nice

    I haven't actually played it yet. I like playing a heavily edited version of the game, so until I've finished my editing I don't really have any desire to play it. Haven't really been working on editing it lately either cuz I know it's gonna take a long time

    How is it though?

    2 days ago

    FM is FM as far as I'm concerned, not very different each year and also I haven't played every one.

    I can get behind that heavy editing thing, it's something I've done with football games in the past - no one likes seeing PSG win the Champions League every year in every game when we all know they're not that good IRL!

    I haven't edited mine much, but what I did do is create my own club. At first I did it with the in-game feature, but when I realized that mode sucks and stops me from importing editor data altogether, I made my club in the editor itself and then loaded it in a regular save. I started out in the Vanarama South and am trying to work my way up. My league finishes so far are

    19-20: 3rd in Vanarama North (promoted via play-offs)
    20-21: 5th in Vanarama National (lost in play-off semi-final)
    21-22: 7th in Vanarama National (lost in play-off quarter-final)
    22-23: 1st in Vanarama National

    And now I'm in 3rd place at the League Two, one third into the season. My players keep getting injured and suspended, and my club's finances are atrociously bad (about to reach Ł1M negative), but somehow things are still going well for now.

    The game itself can be frustrating as I've had loads of games where I couldn't score despite having 30 shots, and also it feels like there are waaaay too many goals being scored from long range. But, I don't know to what extent that stuff is the game's "fault" or mine, or my players, or whatever. That's why FM is so awesome, really, it's unpredictable and hard to understand in a way that feels very close to the real game.

    yeah, I've been playing it a bit

    Yep, gotta balance things a bit more. But I also like adding extra competitions, especially regional ones. The one I like adding the most is an Iberian Cup featuring the teams from the top divisions of Spain and Portugal. Gives you something extra to win, and is also usually pretty competitive too. Plus playing in Portugal and regularly coming up against top Spanish sides is a lot more fun that just the local sides.

    Looks like you've been doing well so far. 2 promotions already. It's pretty fun starting in the lower leagues, but yeah the money issues down there are very real. Good luck with not going bankrupt

    1 day ago

    I'm hoping the FA Cup will save me!

    I had no idea you took the editing that far. I think I'd mess the whole game up if I tried creating a new competition in fact, I didn't even technically create a club, I just stamped my name and crest on a pre-existing one (Havant & Waterlooville). Creating new stuff in the editor is scary.

    Yep, I really go all in. I wish I could do more though. What I really want is to make a combined British Premier League but have the English, Scottish and Welsh clubs use their own European places. I know it can be done, but it requires some awkward workarounds

    Good luck with that, I'm afraid I can't help you.

    Another thing in this game I feel isn't too well balanced is momentum. It's too strong. Like, ridiculously strong.

    I won the first few games of the season in League Two (my goal was to avoid relegation) and suddenly went on a ridiculously good run and was in 1st place by January. Then I got knocked out of the FA Cup after losing a replay 0-2 to Watford, and suddenly I find myself with 1 win and 7 losses from the last 10 games.

    This has happened pretty much every season so far. The moment I lose a couple of games, I'm basically guaranteed to go on a woeful run of defeats that usually lasts like 2 months.

    I might end up not being promoted this season in the end...

    That feeling when you sign up for a new dating app and get 25 "likes" in the first 24 hours

    Which app? I assume it is the infamous one... but if it is a more Japanese focused app, please share haha.

    on 05 December 2019

    Yeah, more Japanese focused. YYC.

    Won't be using it for long because it looks like it would be expensive. So as soon as my free points run out... I'm done.

    I've got a decent number of matches from Omiai too if you want to try another Japanese one. That's more reasonable price wise. Only managed to turn 1 into an actual date so far, but still it's better than nothing.

    on 05 December 2019

    I have heard of Omiai, but will add YYC to the list. I don't plan on using these sites until I make a big push on a bunch of them at the same time.

    on 06 December 2019

    They're both paid sites though, so might be best to just try 1 at a time.

    Plus, they're very Japanese centric so you're gonna want a decent level of Japanese first as well.

    on 06 December 2019

    Were they your fake profile accounts? ;)

    on 10 December 2019

    haha, nah, they were legit.

    None have actually went anywhere though

    on 10 December 2019

    Yeah dating apps are pretty hard, which is why I think mass is pretty good. I hope I can sign up without facebook though, because I don't have facebook.

    on 11 December 2019

    You can. I've not used facebook for a single one yet. As long as you have a Japanese mobile number you'll be fine.

    2020 is not normal

    in Gaming Discussion 1 day ago

    Sounds pretty normal to me. Release dates etc. moving around (always later than expected) is very much normal. Games not being as good or being more expensive (thanks DLC) than expected is also normal. News... well interesting news at least is already rare, so that won't be any different. ...

    Athaba said: Ka-pi96 said: Now that there's less reason to limit tests :-P Still, I'm sure that we're still a lot better off than Europe at the moment and I doubt we'll get that bad either. Haven't even seen a sick person yet (although if I had I'd probably be sick). People in Japan seems to be more disciplined then here in Europe. People here are still going to buy...
