So no data update with it? I kinda figured since they were going from 15.1.4 to 15.2, but doesn't look like it.

So they have not fixed the retarded defenders walking to lose balls?
Anyone encounter the same problems in the previous patch where defenders would do a stutter walk instead of running back to a lose ball. This bug ****** me of the most as it resulted in either of 3 things
1. Defender somehow reaches the ball first, the striker behind him covers 40 yards while he covers barely 10yards
2. Defender and striker reach at same time, resulting in a tackle and a red card or penalty
3. Strikers 40 yards behind the defender reach the ball first and end up scoring

Happened to me too... My defender had an advantage of half pitch.. and the striker got to the ball first. Result was: penalty and red card...WTF??? And guess what, they have the same pace and acceleration

Mmhmm, not sure I can defend that particular bug. It has been in FM since about 2013 and frankly it's wearing a little thin.

This is probably obvious, but anyone able to clarify what this means exactly?
