This site is losing steam...

  • Dear sir, your site has started well and it should be riding on the momentum but the lack of recent activity will probably undone most of your early effort...

    You are right the site did start well and yes it has been quiet recently. I know this started before the festive period, but December is a busy time of the year for people in their private lives with family and work. Most FM sites quieten down over the Christmas period (I should know I've been around long enough). This site also suffers because it is mainly a tactics site so doesn't pick up the traffic of other more established sites. The timing of the new patch hasn't helped as people want fixes for tactics and people just don't have the time. At the end of the day real life comes first.

    Your point has been observed elsewhere on the site by admin. It's a good site so stick with it mate, I'm sure it will pick up in the new year.

    Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

  • Yes, it's such a shame. I really enjoyed it but now it has gone stale. There is no blame attached to anyone as everyone has a life to live but it is always difficult to keep a site of this nature "fresh" and the content is not as wide ranging as other.

  • @cricketdave694 You could keep a site "fresh" if you keep doing what it's meant to be doing; testing tactics. It doesn't have to be on a massive scope, even one tested tactic a day would keep the site going.
    Unfortunately it's become a graveyard with only a few of us discussing some tactics every now and then.

  • So you expect people, that are on holiday with their families to keep working and testing tactics?
    Like expecting working people to keep working while on holiday.

    If you have that much spare time on your hands, please pick up the needed tools and help test tactics.
    Unfortunately, some testers don't have that time.
    Also consider that this is unpaid work put into the testing of tactics.

  • I don't expect that of anyone. I'm just saying that it's a shame as it was so buoyant on here.

  • And it will be again. Patience... 😃
    In the meantime you can help by finding more tactics for them to work on, once people start getting back.
    But also remember, that most tactics will be re-tested for 17.2.
    So there is alot in the pipeline for the testers to do.

  • @Martin-Bahn As I said in the other thread, this website "died" long before holiday season started.
    Basically, after the first, huge batch of tactics were tested, it started going downhill.
    You're right in one thing, though, there's still time to make things running again. 🙂

  • @shirajzl I agreed. One tactic per day is quite doable. Just rotate the testers like rotating your player in football or FM 🙂

  • @Martin-Bahn Well IMO they setup this website so that it could be something big. As in any kind of work, you won't success if you don't go to the limit, just like a football player you have to give your best and die on the field 🙂 You have to sacrifice for success.

  • I like this website, I like where it is going.
    And if I could, I'd gladly give more to it than what I currently am.

    However the holidays coupled with a 20 day old baby on my hands, time isnt a luxury I have.
    Also, I lack the tools and the knowledge to test tactics fully.

    I test tactics in my own saves as they come and if I like them of course.
    I hope to see this site grow and expand, but I don't know if that is the goal.
    As I understand it, the site is for testing tactics - but if it where to expand, I'd love to help out in any way I could.

  • @Martin-Bahn Let's just hope they pick up where they left off 🙂

    Hi guys!

    Our programmer, Luigi, is working on a solution which may take a lot of the workload off of us in regard to the tactic testing. The current time is very busy for all of us, sorry for that 🙂 We don't make any money on the site, so we can't really prioritize it over our paying jobs 🙂 Sometimes we will be posting a lot of content, other times less content, and some times no content (for example around Christmas time, kindergarden closed etc.)

    As mentioned above, the patch came at a bad time for us, making all our work obsolete at a time when we are unable to re-test all the tactics.

    I can only speak for myself, but at the moment I am juggling work, finishing my master thesis and my children (kindergarden is still closed).

    Sorry for my absence lately, and I wish everyone a happy Christmas holiday and a happy new year!

    Mr L

  • Are we any nearer to the resuming of testing?

  • @MrLangvatn
    As say in one proverb - Long harness, but quickly goes 😉
    Hope your team create solution, this will be amazing

  • @MrLangvatn Understood. Hope you guys will be back soon. This site has the potential to take over the fmbase tactic sharing section which imo has become a sick fan boy section where they only care about the author's name instead of the tactic itself. Only one of the top ten tactic being tested here has received it's deserved attention while tons of mediocre tactics were continuesly being produced and praised by the fan boys.

  • @pwolf Yes, FM base has gone to shit (the tactics downloads section). There are several mediocre tactics released every week, which only work with specific type of players under specific circumstances that appeared in the author's saves.
    On top of that, the "main guy" TFF has been releasing average tactics at best this year, and yet his fanboy army is behind him every step of the way.
    And I won't even dwell on people testing and creating tactics with Man Utd, Juventus, Ajax, Porto...

  • @shirajzl word! I am using the gamebreaker tactic to great success with Hertha BSC and other mid- and low-level teams, but it somehow just flies under the radar.
    There are currently 2-3 contributers with a large fanbase, who just sweep away all the attention of potentially great tactics.

  • The site is dead. Lets move on

    I don't think it's dead yet, but it sure lost a lot of people and their interest.
    That's a big shame because it had great potential. I don't think the new, quicker testing method will help because, whenever it comes, it comes way too late at this point. Loads of people have stop visiting this site, I'm afraid.
