On The Forums: Future, Past and the Present


Not a lot of interest on the forums this week aside from a couple of official threads. Beyond those it’s a lot of the same speculation that’s continued for some time. Although there was one standout thread that revived an old piece of video and added a much needed touch of humour to the forums. Something that’s been in short supply for some time.

Marc Duffy produced a blog this week and transcribed that onto the forums in the State of the gameworlds – SI Update. While some may see it as yet another announcement of an announcement as it is there to inform everyone that the 23rd of November will see the beginning of a series of blogs.

“Over the next few days we’ll be preparing a series of blogs (posted here and in game) which will try and give you, the subscribers of FML, a frank and honest view of the game, the mistakes we’ve made and how we intend to rectify them.”

It does however go on to detail who attended the FMLive council meeting and some insight into what occured on the day.

In the wake of Football Manager Live’s Birthday and the free gift to all who logged in on the day, there have been some issues with people not receiving their code for the free game from Steam. In response to that Bertie BG (the FML Community Guru) has made a few posts in the Where is my copy of Rome: Total War? thread. Essentially anyone that logged in has a code assigned to them, and any difficulty receiving that can be sorted by Sega Support.

And so to the touch of humour; Luis Lopez who you might recall from the FML Time Machine Podcast has linked in an old video from the FM’08 days. Although it’s a little old the sentiment behind it is very relevant to the state of the official forums at present. Two years on and a different game, but not a lot has changed amongst those that use the forums.
