CVG has posted their Football Manager 2012 interview with Sports Interactive Director, Miles Jacobson.

Quote:
What's the far future for match engine. I can remember only a few years ago when dots on a screen were all we had, so it's already come a long way. Is the vision to reach to something like FIFA levels of presentation or does that defeat the object entirely?

There are a few reasons why I don't think that would work for us. For a start, with FIFA, they've got a database with about 15,000 players or something like that that they model. We've got 500,000 players and staff so we wouldn't be looking to model all of those.

Second when you're playing an action game it's quite a bit different to a management game. With a management game you need to be able to see a lot more of the pitch because you need to be able to see what your right back's doing while your right winger's pegging it up the wing. That's not really necessary in an action game.

So we're not striving for FIFA's look, we're actually striving to look like a real game of football and trying to have the lighting of a real game of football but with a little bit of leeway to be able to see the ball and for players' skin colours not to change too much when they go into shadows.

Indianapolis Colts

Singleback Trips Colt-Colts Ins

Colts Pro-Bowl QB Peyton Manning has had plenty of weapons at his disposal over the years, but the group he has now may be the best he has ever had. Receivers Reggie Wayne, Pierre Garcon, Austin Collie, and tight ends Dallas Clark and Jacob Tamme give Manning plenty of options in the passing game. The Colts love to run "under" routes by their outside receivers and on this play the two receivers on the right will both run under routes. The primary receiver, however, will be TE Dallas Clark who is running an intermediate dig route with a shake cut where he fakes to the right before cutting back towards the middle.


Jacksonvillle Jaguars

4-3 Under - Under Sam Shark 3

The Jacksonville Jaguars stingy defensive unit has played a key role in the success of the team over the past few seasons. The Jaguars have especially stout up front in the defensive line and linebacker units. 4-3 Under Under Sam Shark 3 is a fire zone concept that calls for the middle and strong linebacker to rush off the edge while the right defensive end drops into coverage.


Houston Texans

Gun Tight Doubles On-Texans Fork

When you think of the Houston Texans the first name that comes to mind is WR Andre Johnson. He is the clear focal point of the Texans' passing game. However, TE Owen Daniels, when healthy, has also been an outstanding weapon for quarterback Matt Schaub. On this play, Daniels is the featured target as he runs a corner route that should be open thanks to the right flanker running a post clear out route. Johnson will run a drag smash option on the backside of the play to give Schaub a secondary option if Daniels is covered over the top.


Tennessee Titans

Dime Normal Cover 2 Spy

The Tennessee Titans rely heavily on their defensive line to generate a pass rush on opposing quarterbacks. The Titans generally employ a cover 2 look with a combination of defensive line games. Dime Normal Cover 2 Spy is a cover 2 concept that calls for a defensive linemen to spy the underneath are of the field in the cover 2 scheme.

What improvements have been made to the AI?

This year a new system has been put in place to enable the AI to consider and act upon several things at once. Last year we had difficulties making the AI competitive on the hardest difficulty but this year… well… they are fast!

Have the long waits in the pits been fixed?

Yes, fixed! Entirely new pit system was implemented after we reviewed last years work.
