Chance to win one of five copies of CM5, courtesy of Eidos Interactive Ltd.
No, I'm not setting up a competition myself, this refers to the "news"-bit Eidos and BGS had in mind for us.
At www.championshipmanager.co.uk, Keir Edmonds put up a small teaser of the match engine, which happens to be a best goal competition as well. Follow THIS LINK to download a ~9MB zip file containing an executable called "afternoon.exe". This checks out, no virus or spyware integrated.
Inside are 5 examples of how wonderfully realistic CM5 is at the moment, and YOU get to choose one to compete for the free copies (the executable will open a new browser window when you go to vote). The competition closes March 14th at 7pm GMT.
On your 2nd point... Don't fix it if it isn't broken (:/)
It's not something you can claim copyright for, as it's supposed to be something a real life commentator would say. So I don't see a bad thing in BGS copying SI's commentary file. Good commentary is one part of making a good football management sim, and without it, they'd have no chance at all.
