Something which I had noticed in previous editions and is also the case in 15 is the discrepancy between which clubs and national teams want you. I managed a semi-professional French 3rd division side for 2 and 1/2 seasons and quit, obviously no team with even two-star rep wanted me, but somehow I got the Ivory Coast NT job and am now going to the 2018 WC. Sure I speak French, but that's it, I have Regional rep, National B license and only that French club as experience.
Reporters just asked me, in the press conference after the draw for the WC2018, if I thought my team had an advantage due to the weather in Russia being so similar to the one where we play. I'm Ivory Coast.
Yup. The gameplay imo has always been iffie. It's like it's not really football, but "FM football". The buildup, CCCs, shots, passing, positioning, etc. aren't really VERY realistic, but more a different version of football. I'm in 2022 though
Yeah, the match engine leaves fewer things to the imagination. They give an answer, but it's not a very good one. The goalie sometimes looks like a hockey goal to me, sliding to the ball like a hockey goalie would block a puck. It looks weird.
