They won't improve manager career much cause they don't make extra money from it.

Which is weird, you'd think they would've offered career based purchases by now.

Make player purchases cost real money! Instead of paying a virtual £15m for a player, you can pay a real £15m!

Imagine the outrage if that happened :lol: Maybe pay £1.5m for a £15m transfer? Or maybe if you don't have enough transfer budget you can "buy" more transfer budget with real money?

Yeah I had a fair crack at it. Definitely a game that I will be getting. The 4vs4 mode was great. Inbetween catching flags and fighting the opposing players you can absolutely slaughter token enemies that can't fight for ****. One swing with the Viking axe and you can take out 5 odd guys.

I've got it, I have buyers remorse

I'm hoping they patch it pretty soon cause atm it stinks

The gameplay is bad, it's very inconsistent with it's calls, and the commentary is **** annoying

So long as the RLL4 gameplay is good, then I'm not too fussed with the graphics.
Stadium creation seems like a strange thing to add to this game.. do they have that in Madden or anything like that?

They had it in the last Madden I bought... think that was 14?
All I want is to create a custom league with more than 16 teams. Then they can take my money.
Feel free to call me RickyRicky StickStick if you like. I will also accept Super Fui, King Brad, Kid Dynamite, Chocolate-Thunda... or Brad.

You can either buy it now and ride out the initial **** the game will be or wait a month until it's patched and decent

Only thing I want to know about this game, can you create a custom league with 16+ teams?
In the 1st RLL game, I could create custom teams and have a 32 team league. Good times. I've been longing for this to be available again since.

Last game, you could do a custom league, but you had to replace a current team with a custom one. Annoying

I just had a look, 16 is the maximum clubs it allows in a custom competition.
