Update 1 and Update 2

Like promised in the board yesterday I am coming back to you today with a blog regarding the contents of update 1 and a little preview of update 2.

Hello FIFA MANAGER community,

like promised in the board yesterday I am coming back to you today with a blog regarding the contents of update 1 and a little preview of update 2.

After the release of FIFA MANAGER 11 we received much criticism from our fans and players. We will use Update 1 to tackle the first of these reported issues, so your gaming experience can be augmented. Unfortunately due to time constraints, it wasn’t possible to implement the community feedback from after the release in update 1, but we are working hard on Update 2 which will contain your criticism, wishes and improvement suggestions.

What changes in Update 1?

  • The offer-problem for reserve players and players from the second team is fixed, you will now receive many more offers for your players
  • Reserve team problem in Live Season is fixed, meaning that the results of the second teams are now correctly selected and depicted
  • European Cup problem in Live Season solved, meaning that groups are now selected correctly and are presented in the game correctly
  • More than 100 further improvements and bug fixes, among others the amount of newspaper reports were reduced, graphical as well as logical discrepancies were corrected
  • Various improvements in the Online Mode

Unfortunately, I can’t tell you an exact date for the release of Update 1, since it currently is in acceptance phase, this process is out of our area of influence. It will surely take some days till it is ready to be published.

Outlook for Update 2:

The most frequent criticism we heart was concerning the 3D game and the lack of competition for experienced FIFA MANAGER players. Our 3D team, which is working hard on this problem, are currently analyzing different approaches, but it is a bit too early for specific info. Basically, we are all positive that we can implement the suggestions from the forum and improve the playing experience.

Furthermore, the text mode is basis of tuning and we will improve it for update 2 as well.

As you might imagine, this only is a small insight into the work on Update 2 and much more is happening. If you should have urgent suggestions or bug reports, please inform us about those in the respective forums.

Additionally, you can contact me in person via or via PM in the forum (Oliver_BF).
