So many terrific suggestions on here re pretty obvious fixes & improvements, all for nothing when you look at what actually ends up featuring in the patch updates (whenever we’re lucky enough to get them, that is).
I’ll buy AFL24 whenever it comes out because I’m a sucker for the sport (and surely it has to be better than this) but there’s no way I’d ever consider buying any other game made from BigAnt.
Hi @JNT_BA I know there are a lot of messages and also some heated comments on the forum.
I believe speaking from myself as previous buyer of the game and passionate AFL supporter, along with the other previous and possible future buyers of the game all we would want is a ball-park roadmap of what sort of things we can expect to be introduced both to fix current issues as well as some proposed ideas for further enhancing the game play experience as well as the management mode experience.
As we all know there are a lot of improvements are needed for the management mode and game play experience, we know its not a sprint to get there, but it would be great just to be told there is some light at the end of the tunnel.
I wonder how many people are going to take a wait and see approach before they buy the next game ?
I’m certainly staying away from all games BigAnt are involved in from now on until I see that they’ve fixed it as it’ll inevitably come out in a broken state
May as well just close this forum down. Absolutely no communication, go over to the cricket forum, plenty of comms and updates coming through over there. This games dead and on the back burner hoping that everyone just gives up waiting for any updates
Fingers crossed once things calm a bit with Cricket, we hear a bit/something over here. They always said they had multiple teams covering these games, but by the sounds of it and looks of that other thread, the release of Cricket didn’t go anywhere near as planned and they’ve probably dragged resources for the first few weeks to get it up to scratch - exact carbon copy of what happened with AFL23’s release. JNT is probably copping 1000 DM’s a day from cricket fans having a melt too.
Don’t think they’d can the game now though- all the money they’ve spent and the AFL has spent on Pro Team won’t just see it never get released. For all we know, the AFL are the ones who’ve said “season is over, wait until pre season next year so we can go full swing”. It would be a travesty if we are charged for that next year but I don’t see that happening - if they put a charge to get it added in, they’ll be pushing away a sizeable majority of the players. Nobody is going to pay for Pro Team which was promised at release, and then sink more money into the microtransactions etc. Either way though, JNT isn’t allowed to speak those things - that’d be Ross if he isn’t locked under an NDA, and he’d be in full damage control mode right now with Cricket.
I honestly think you’re right though and its going to be dead for a while - we probably won’t see anything significant until early next year after they’ve got their 2 international games up and running (Cricket and Rugby). Even though everyone is fired up, it’s still good to see people posting in here. That keeps BA on their toes and aware that the game still requires work and still has a passionate group of people wanting it to improve.
When you swap players from one team to another, it just duplicates them meaning Swans Grundy would play against Demons Grundy. Also their numbers remain the same meaning you have two of the same numbers running around on the field.
What are we, 6 months in?
When you make team modifications you do not “swap” anything. You make a copy, as you have to select “Create Editable Copy” when performing this action, as the original idea was the official teams cannot be modified but it makes a copy you can play with.
If you want to make other changes to another team you then have to make another edited team and remove that player if you would like that consistency.
There are a number of personal favorite all-star teams on the academy that have a number of their top players. I’m sure they don’t want to every time they play a game with a friend have to “swap” back every player they took from every team.
Mate, if you’re going to take the time out of your work day to post on here, wouldn’t it be possible to give some sort of update on what progress is being made on fixing the numerous flaws, bugs and limitations that still plague this game (mentioned above numerous times)? It has been radio silence on these issues.
