This is a feature that many of you have requested in our FM 2013 wishlist and now it’s here! Football Manager 2013 will include the Director of Football in your club staff and there are plenty of things that this particular member of the staff will be able to help you with.
You can give him the power to hire or fire staff for you, he can assign the scouts to specific tasks, he can handle transfer negotiations and he can also identify new signings for your club and even put pen to paper if you want him to.
But the best is yet to come: you can give him a shopping list of players you want and then he can wheel and deal in order to get you those players. Moreover, you can present him a list of unwanted players at your club and then he will do his best to sell them at the best possible prices.
Last but not least, you can compile a development list, a shortlist of young players at your club that need more first team football, and you can give the Director of Football the task to find them appropriate loan deals.
Here’s Miles Jacobson giving you more details about the role of Director of Football in Football Manager 2013:
- separate leaderboards for each game mode (full career, FM Classic, challenges).
- separate leaderboards for nations/divisions.
- sophisticated scoring system that takes into account trophies, goals scored, but also the initial reputation of the club that you achieved those results with.
- fully integrated with Steam, you will be able to compare your score to those of your Steam friends.
- manager wages count towards the points you earn, so now there’s a point in negotiating a higher salary with your club.
- much easier to set up, network games will run through the powerful Steam servers.
- you have the possibility to export your team from single player mode into a network game. This way you can play against one of your friends regardless of which season your team is playing in the single player mode. For instance, I could play with Viitorul Constanta against Darren’s Scarborough or Kevin’s Toronto FC!
- agree on match view settings before the actual game, which avoids having the two players having different settings.
- New physics engine, which allows more realistic ball trajectories. The ball is now affected by pitch conditions and weather.
- Player bodies are more realistic.
- AI (Artificial Intelligence) more realistic.
- New cameras and the possibility to zoom in and out.
- Increased stadium details.
- live feed of suggestions and updates during the match in a single, customizable, panel, instead of multiple panels like in FM 2012
- quicker in-game substitutions
- animated action bar and match info bar during the match
- easier access to camera selection and match speed settings
