I haven't played FM in a while but the videos are getting me fired up about FM18. I really like the new scouting features and the "social groups" thing. In the past, it has been hard to navigate situations when a player is pissed off at you, and in real life I think you'd know who his friends are.

I've always been amazed by that German law. There are more important examples of governments getting involved in things they have no business getting involved in, but this one seems pretty asinine to me.

This is not a government issue (although German government loves going crazy). The DFL, which governs top-level soccer in Germany, sold an exclusive licence to EA years and years ago, meaning EA were the only ones who could legally bring a game to the market.

And then didn't.

Edit: correction as to what the DFL has a say on

As far as I know, MLB The Show has a similar problem when it comes to platforms. 2K still holds the rights for a multi-platform MLB kinda game, but have not released one for ages, so MLB The Show is not allowed to release on Xbox or PC and Playstation...

2k does not hold the license anymore. The only reason why the MLB the show is exclusive to PlayStation is itís produced by Sonyís San Diego studios. Itís a first party title.

Oh well, if that is the case, it once again shows me how much you can trust gaming business articles on the internet :P

You can not trust anybody. Microsoft brought Forza Motorsport to Xbox only for a decade, and suddenly the new one is out for the PC. Is the console market dead after all?

IF you want to watch something more entertainment based for FM, try DoctorBenjyFM. Some like him, some hate him, and he is not a genius player, but I personally enjoy him.

If the DFL can bar businesses from selling products in the country, that's a government issue. That's the DFL wielding government powers to restrain trade.

Someone mentioned before that custom leagues were possible(maybe I should have said custom teams) and would like too know the process ahead of time because I bought FM in the past and was stuck for an answer.

i've had a difficult time getting into FM for years. I have tons of fun from drafting players....so naturely it's more difficult for me to get into football especially with no top undisputed number one league like the NHL, NFL, MLB etc.

With that said, I Think this year i'll buy it and give another try

You can edit it, yes. If you like starting with modern day real world (which I do) it is in great shape. Something I wish OOTP did a better job of. Don't get me wrong, it's much better than it was in past years, but it still doesn't always get everything correct (weather, forgets to rename and re-align teams and divisions e.g.. the Eastern league and other things like this...such as not having the rookie league cities entered.
