Let me clarify, when I say I “hate” FM, I mean I like the idea of it, I like doing transfers, offering salaries etc; I can even put up with having to experiment with various formations and tactics but where I get frustrated (or should I say bored) is with the millions of other “little things” you need to do like training, press interviews that can affect your game, sponsorship deals and so on….I just find it all a chore and I know some FM fans are even asking for a more automated version where the boring stuff is done for you.
I’m all for realism but let’s not forget it’s game. If I was offered the choice between the current ML and an ultra-realistic one where you have to consider sponsorship deals, ground staff wages etc and where you spend more time doing admin than you do playing, I would prefer the original.
They could use a similar sytem to FIFA. You hire fitness coach's, stadium manager's, trainer's, dietician's, medical team's, scout's etc to do the boring jobs. The better/more efficient they are the more they cost. Simple.
I love master league but the best parts are, watching your young players develop and replace past "stars". The only way to develop players is by playing football. You want to feel like your playing the game not like you're working.
Remember this is a football simulation game not a manager simulation game. If you like the depth of management, buy a manager game instead!
What do you think?
