Trophy presentations, perhaps most import of all, have been improved for FM21 .
“Say goodbye to the old trophy animation and hello to a brand new, carefully crafted cut-scene,” they write. “Now, you can watch your players celebrate the moment and collect their medals before the eagerly anticipated trophy-lift for the fans.
“Confetti cannons, podiums, the media and the cups and trophies themselves all add to the event. You might even witness a lap of honour too, if you’re lucky.”
But it doesn’t end there.
A few days after that final game of the season, you’ll be transported into a “brand-new environment.” You’ll see a full season review where can browse the highs and lows of your side’s campaign.
“You’ll go on this journey through the review no matter how successful your season has been, it’s not just for the lucky few that lifted trophies.
“This end of season review will group together all of the campaign’s accolades too, rounding up any awards you or your players have won throughout the season. These achievements will no longer be hidden away in your club’s information screens but brought to the fore for you to appreciate and remember.”
The emphasis seems to be on not ending things with the final whistle. FM are encouraging users to savour the moment.
They advise: “Don’t just skip past the celebrations, immerse yourself in them as you watch your captain hold aloft the cup you’ve been dying to win for the last four campaigns.
“Every season is different and so is every end of season review you receive, making each achievement feel different, giving those managers who get lightyears into saves a chance to pause and recall those memorable moments.”
