Cannot recommend cloud activation, unfortunately.
Did the price go up already? It’s now £22.16!
Have to agree, I (along with many others!) was so addicted to Champ/Football Manager that I actually banned myself from playing it for about 8 years lol Installed the 2019 version two days ago, out of curiosity to see how it has changed, and oh boy it's not changed for the better at all! It just throws far too much stuff at you, gone are the halcyon days of just one more game and burning a whole night away getting through a season and trying to find wonderkids and bargain team changing signings Now it takes about an hour to even get to a match ffs (annoyed)
This has well and truly "jumped the shark" for me.
Completed it mate.
