Football Manager 2015 has been received with mixed reviews from fans all over the world. This year’s iteration of the most popular football management game has been greatly criticized for being thrown to the public, just like all the previous editions, with tons of bugs and problems, many even calling FM 2015 the worst game of the franchise (although I personally award FM 2014 with this title).
Back to today’s news, though, Sports Interactive have just released a patch that they promise fixes the long save times in the game, as well as other problems that players have been facing, like stupid behavior from goalkeepers and many more. Check out the changelist of patch 15.1.4 for Football Manager 2015 below:
Optimised save game speeds
Fixed game launch issues linked to local user permissions
Fixed rare crash on continue
Improved defensive reactions to crosses and corners
Tweaked wide defending of wingers
Improved goalkeeper reaction times after an initial save
Various other goalkeeper improvements
Fixed further instances of own goals being awarded incorrectly
Fixed further instances of players not being given offside when collecting rebounds
Fixed rare instances of U18 teams starting match with only a goalkeeper, resulting in high scorelines
Fixed problem where AI teams would sub many of their players off the pitch without replacements, resulting in high scorelines
Data and Competitions
Fixed Greek Superleague scheduling
Martin Ødegaard added to new games
Added licensed kits for MLS expansion teams
Added player Role & Duty to pitch on tactics screen
Most Football Manager 2015 players know that until the last update is rolled, the game will still be plagued or at least troubled by bugs and strange behavior, and more and more people are starting to consider that the playable version is the one that usually gets to us in March, when the final patch is released. We all hope that the next year’s game will change this, but it never happens.
As for the patch, the next time you start Steam, it will download and update your game automatically.
