FX Eleven updated with free DLC: 3D Match



FX Eleven has been updated with the 3D MATCH DLC, the simulator that lets you enjoy the matches in their entire dimension.

Overhead kicks, superb chips, diving headers, give and goes... The game cameras provide you with real-time action and replays from all angles.

Also, in the culminating moments of each match, the eCam ("emotion camera") comes into play. Hold your breath and observe the outcome of the play.

And of course, with the 3D Match you’ll still be the one calling the shots from the side-line, in real-time, so that victory won’t slip through your fingers.

Thanks to the 3D Match, FX Eleven takes a step forward in its evolution and becomes FX FOOTBALL, the manager for every football fan.

In the FX Football Official Guide you will find a video that demonstrates all of the possibilities in the 3D Match mode.

  • Revision and update of the results system on detecting misalignments in the calculation of player moral after a match in relation to the score obtained, for the quality of the rival, for the classification of the teams and if the match was played home or away.
  • Revision of the statistics system. As of now, only the details of the official matches will be taken into account when assigning the scores and acquisition of achievements.
  • Incorporated, by request of the community, the selection of currency type (Euro, Pound Sterling, US Dollar or Ruble) in which the game displays financial data.
  • Improvements to the AI and animations in the simulator.

I got it because it was cheaper than Football Manager. I really want to like it, but it crashes a lot, has a lot of bugs, and a clunky UI.

Don't get suckered in by this game's sleek graphics and sweet promises. Mortals like you and I can't comprehend it. This game isn't complex, don't misunderstand me. It just doesn't matter what you do, or what players you do it with, you can't win consistenly in this game. The problem is that the match AI is so mind-bogglingly advanced and sophisticated, a simpleton like me just can't figure it out. At first I fiddled with player stats and tactical arrangements, tweaking this and that, calculating the best man for the best position, but that was not to be. The AI knew better.

I placed one of the best defenders in the world in the center back position, his prefered position, but the AI knew something I didn't. The AI pushed his forward all the way from midfield. My defenders, even the best of them, will sometimes just stand there and watch the opposing forward run past them for a dozen yards before even reacting. Tired? Nope, peak fitness, in fact. I tried pegging a defender on the enemy forward. The AI just sneered at my unsophisticated, rustic ways. The forward ran past my man by seven or eight full steps again before he even reacted. Nevermind the fact that my man was standing in front of the enemy forward when the forward started his run. My man stood still and the AI laughed all the way to the net. It was just too damn smart for me.

A few games later the enemy foward struck the crossbar and the ball rolled right in front of my keeper. My keeper had a player rating of 91 in his goalkeeping position, making him one of the top three keepers in the world, and yet he dives to the ground right next to the ball. Just three inches shy of it, better luck next time; afterall, you're only costing me 6,000,000 dollars a year! No, wait a minute, there won't be any luck in this game. My top defender ran up to the ball from 10 yards away, preventing the keeper from getting it, stopped a second to ponder his next move, and then cleared it -- right into his own net. Granted, this was the Italian league, so someone probably paid him to do that, but I can't help but feel the hopelessness of doing anything in this game. The AI is just too damn smart for me.

When the next season started, I decided to try a different approach. The AI was trying to tell me all along not to focus so much on defense and possession play. Attack is the best defense, they say. For the next season, I put all my resources into my forwards and pinned all my hopes on them. Oh, what wonders they worked! The best passer in the world, a man whose base passing stat was 95, would pass balls with such incredible precision -- right to the enemy players' feet. It was miraculous how effecient and consistent he was at passing the ball to my enemies. Another wonderful trick he pulled, several times, much to my delight, was when he'd pass the ball to a friendly player standing just two feet behind him, the ball would then bounce off of the unsuspecting guy, and then it would roll to the one place you might have guessed -- to the enemy players' feet!

You may think these are flukes or anomalies. Think again. The AI is already reading your mind, right now, anticipating what players you're going to field and it's bribing them before you even buy the game. It's forcing them to pass balls at enemy feet and to stand slackjawed as forwards sprint past them for 20 yards. It's true, you just can't beat this game. You aren't smart enough. Well, maybe you are. But I'm not smart enough, so I'm throwing in the towel and letting Sherlock Holmes figure this crap out.

well ... game crashed after i finished my 1st season playing with a team in england. Game crashed twice in middle season too.
Now i cant even load the autosave on the preseason between 1 and 2 season it freezes.
Wonder if its unstable because i used the mod for real name players.
Will try a new game later without the mod and see if its unstable too.

Despite game is very unstable its simple and fun to play, hope developers are still patching it, so much potential if it works properly.
If developers are like some other companies that just give up patching and starting making a new continuation game to rip of money they just lost a costumer.

So i will give a "no" to recomend this game till it gets stable, then its for sure a "yes"

(edited 03/jun/2014)
new negative side i just figured .... if you use "halftime -> fulltime" buttons to play matchs ... it goes almost goalless most the time .... if you use highlight method the match have much more goals

The graphics and UI look good dont they?
How screenshots can decieve or hide what the game is really like.

The faults for me (and many, see forums) are:

A) The match engine is wonky, players vanish from the pitch and all you see is the ball moving around.
B) No Sound, the sound simply refuses to work full stop with no fix in sight for this.
C) Resolutions, although 2560x1080 appeared as a option for me in the game settings, it doesnt work and chops parts of the screen off.
D) Support, i have no seen ONE response from a Dev about anything to do with this game, albeit bugs or gameplay or anything!

Final note, there are no licenses for this game, all the players and teams have those silly names, there is a mod out to change them, but alot of it is wrong, expect to see star players with 2 stars etc and a unknown with 5 stars where the guy that made the mod has things wrong and players mixed up.

Thats all for me, except to say if you like the looks of this just hold on a little bit to see if any Devs give a response about this games issues and go from there.

For me i am now off to buy FM and play classic mode (should have in the beggining).

What should I say...after almost 15 years of Football Manager, and after many experiences with various games; I saw the promo for this game, and it looked like fun.

From the start, it has no simulation expectation; it is mainly a game that newcomers of soccer will enjoy. I purchased it since I wanted to see how different it was from FM14. The answer is: totally different.

The game is almost amateurish in its core; many options are trimmed to the minimum; which is good for people that has never played a manager game, but takes away 90% of the fun to play FM in my opinion. I was looking for a leaner, more spectacular approach, kinda like the old series made by EA, where they used the FIFA engine to support a very simple manager game. That was an attempt where you enjoy more the 3d match, than anything else, so it was fine.

This game has a terrific presentation, the menu are clean and super colorful; everything is there available for you to choose it; the whole screen is divided in 4 areas, so you can mange your team, stadium/finances, buy/sell players and set up the starting lineup and training.

Where it fall short is mainly in the options and in the 3d engine.

The options are limited to basics; you can buy/sell players, train them (or let the assistant do it for you), set the starting 11 and define how should they play, but that's all; if you find FM intimidating, this game will make you feel like a grown up man playing with a child computer, with big buttons and colorful animations on screen. There is no option to change language, so you are stuck with English and its terminology.
The amount of team is ridiculously low, including only few major and minor leagues; but after all, who wants to go play in Poland or Sweden? :)

The names are not the real one; you can edit them but from what I understand, you right click on the screen and type the players names; which means that there is no editor, where you can load everything from a file...you have to do all the work on your own! On top of that; you can't transfer players or change their position, so you are stuck with the predefined settings for each player. That's bad....really bad.

But where it fall short the most, is on the 3d match. Players looks like a game from 5-6 years old (they look better than the FM players thou, which is not that hard in the end); not a big deal if they would be realistic...I was expecting FIFA quality; but the reality is different; they slide, like if they would just move their legs without lift their feet; and the overall sensation is tha tthey are playing in a can full of thick honey or maple syrup...sluggish is too nice as term, to describe the poor animation.

Overall they seem to act like the first attempts at 3d match in the old manager games; they do stupid things; they run and then trigger an animation; throw the ball in any direction, independently if there are players to obstruct the trajectory (and no, it is not on purpose); the players has a very minimalistic way to execute your orders on the field; doing the basics (run in straight lines; stop to try to pass the ball, or pass the ball without even changing directions); so forget any kind of realistic match viewing, when you use the 3d match engine.

This game is so disappointing; basically it is really a waste of money, unless you never played with any manager game of this kind, in which case, it is a good intro for better games (FM); if you ahve 10 dollars to waste, get it, otherwise leave it where it is....I won't pay this game even 5 dollars honestly....the amount of fun that it may deliver is scarce at most, and won't last long.

Unless you are 7 and is your first soccer manager game.

There's nothing fundamentally wrong with the game. It does bring in some interesting aspects to managing, much like the old FIFA managers where you can manage the stadium and sponsors in addition to the team. It just isn't as exciting as say, FM. I'm not sure if that's because it's over-simplified, or if it just hasn't got the realism FM has. Probably a mix of both. Got bored after the first 5 games of the season, which weren't necessarily easy, just that you always had a way of intervening in a match you wouldn't normally have in a manager game, so you never felt any of the tactics or training was really necessary. User-friendly, yes. Easy ro grasp, yes. Fun to master, probably not.

Constantly freezes and crashes. I have over 100 steam games and none of them are as hopeless as this. Not managed to play 1 match yet, during going thru the management screens it just freezes and closes. No error messages, no help.

Awesome game. Not as cut and dry as Football Manager spreadsheet.

This game has enough complexity to keep you enganged, while also offers the option to delegate responsibilities to assistants and coaches.
