I am not very computer literate and when a friend offered to install Football Manager 2012 on my computer I thought this was a nice thought for a present. I have since found out that this was a pirated copy and have had it uninstalled. Before I could do this however, I was banned for life by FM Base, for being a pirate. They should make more enquiries before being judge, jury and executioner on an issue like this. This site is run by pseudo intellectuals who have a "we are superior" attitude. The sooner it is taken over by humans then the better it will be.
Everything you could want from a forum dedicated to Football Manager you can find in one site, I've tried and tested other forums out there but none compare to this. A vast array of content, made by the excellent forum community, is readily available to download, from graphics, to tactics and training schedules .... you can even buy the latest Football Manager game here with confidence.
I've been a member of FM-Base since 2008 and during that period, I have never needed to use any other site for my FM downloads, whether it be tactics, kits, facepacks, logos or training schedules; there's no shortage of anything.
Couple this with the thriving community on the FM-Base forum and not only do you have all of the files you need to fully customise your game, but you also have a massive user base to discuss the game with too.
When it was announced that Football Manager 2012 would be purchasable via FM-Base this year, I jumped on the offer and am pleased to say I've had no problems whatsoever. I am really enjoying the game and would like to thank FM-Base once again for their fast and effective service.
I stumbled across the site a couple of years back looking for downloads for Football Manager-and haven't looked back. There's tonnes of downloadable content for the Football Manager series, and plenty of people willing to help. There is great banter, and the staff do a great job maintaining the site, and are also a great help, making tactics, finding the best players-a real help. Can also talk about a whole variety of subjects aswell apart from football manager and football in general-pretty much anything. And I also had great experience downloading the latest Football Manager game without any problems whatsoever. I've looked at other sites, but they don't even come close to this one in quality. This is pretty much the best one around.
