Football Manager 2022 – ITNetwork

With all the praise that FIFA and other annual sports franchises receive, there has always been something magical about Football Manager. This is partly due to his deep, simulated playing with hundreds of thousands of variables – nothing can really come close to him. But it’s also because of the magic of securing a glorious victory against a bigger team, a team that avoids relegation on the last day of the season and, well, everything you see during a football weekend.

It is that romanticism of the game, all its best parts, tucked into the download on your PC that you can play in parts of half an hour or weeks in a row. And Football Manager 2022 is the best sequel in the franchise so far, building on the already great Football Manager 2021 to offer us our new favorite way to spend hours in front of a computer shouting at the screen.

The appeal of Football Manager can be roughly divided into three parts – selecting and managing your team, finding stars out of nowhere and negotiating a transfer, and each of these key pillars has received a lot of attention in Football Manager 2022.

First of all, the mechanism of the match has been much improved. Of course, it’s not exactly FIFA 22, but the players move more freely and less as if they came out too late the night before. The circles of rotation and animation among the players are still a bit stiff, but the pressing is much improved, with players squeezing to fill the space and closing the corners of the pass.

Of course, success ultimately comes down to tactics, and there is good news. After several years of two or three “meta” formations, the system is much more flexible. The new option with a wide center back helps to lag in contrast, allowing for much more progressive views of the passes without constantly sending backwards.

You will still have cases where you will lose to a later winner or you will be humiliated by local rivals, but the good news is that you will have someone to turn to for answers. Football Manager has always been built on data, but it has not always been a franchise that serves them in the most attractive or efficient way.

Football 2022 2Enter the data hub, which is the master’s dream. Football Manager 2022 less often teased the “spreadsheet simulator”, but now also offers charts, tables and pass maps. This allows you to more easily identify which of your central midfielders continues to give the ball, and which of them needs to cover more.

This emphasis on making data more accessible also extends to scout reports. You will no longer have to look for more reports to get a clearer picture of whether this South American child prodigy is worth your team rejecting almost all of its transfer budget – you will get one, neat, constantly updated report that takes into account more previous reports.

One of the biggest inconsistencies of Football Manager is its transfer market, where player values ​​are determined based on various factors that led to promising young players being sold for extortionate amounts. Fortunately, Football Manager 2022 is making changes to that rubric, offering more realistic values ​​that won’t deplete the budget.

Manager 1Still, there is still a lot of negotiation, and FM22 has changed Deadline Day – a key event in the football season as well as everything that happens on the field. Now, agents will recommend their clients to other clubs, players will lean for moves, and your targets may receive late offers that turn their heads. In previous games, Deadline Day was a standard day, only with more emails, but this time it’s much more interesting.

It’s also easier to see at a glance which of your players is attracting interest, without having to jump to each player’s profile or hover your mouse over the icon. This means you can more efficiently “buy and sell” when the clock is ticking.

Football Manager 2022 is the kind of Football Manager game that many would dream of. He fixes almost every weakness in the team, and made us think “just one more match” long into the night. By far the best approximation of the drama and passion of football so far, and it is essential for football fans.
