    Rugby Union Team Manager 2017 for PC and Mac

    We have just announced today, that "Rugby Union Team Manger 2017" will be released later this year (the date is to be confirmed, but we will keep you updated).
    The game has been totally re-worked from the ground up, and we sincerely hope that all of you who have supported us with RUTM15, will really like the game, as without your continued support, this new game would have not been possible.

    More details will follow.

    Kind Regards

    Dave - I don't suppose calibre will change, or will a player be fixed on a calibre for his whole career?

    Looks great Dave! Looks very clean and easy on the eyes - similar to Pro Rugby Manager 2 which was my favourite rugby management game (bugs aside).

    Look forward to a demo or some more pictures soon!

    Hi,
    There isn't an "easy" option as is.
    But to make the game easier to play all the following can be automated, as you may require.
    Matchday attendance
    Match tactics
    Match interchanges
    Team selection
    Physio. assignment
    Doctor assignment
    Training rota selection
    Negotiation offers
    Daily advances

    I hope this is helpful

    Will southern hemisphere rugby be represented accurately this time? I.e. will the Heartland Championship, Mitre 10 Cup, and Super Rugby be treated as separate competitions without promotion-relegation between them? Will the Mitre 10 Cup be in two divisions? Will some players be on both Mitre 10 Cup and Super Rugby rosters?

    I agree with this. This will determine whether I buy the game or not, alongside perhaps two or three other things that would be nice to change. I find it frustrating that I could not control my local Lions teams in both Currie Cup and Super Rugby in the 2015 game, with basically 80-90% the same squad. The players are predominantly the same. Are there any plans to model this a little more accurately Dave?

    I cannot wait for the new game.

    A couple of other thoughts, not that anyone will be interested:

    1) One thing I found strange about the previous game, which I love overall by the way, is that there are three difficulty settings. I think a management game that aims to simulate a sport should have a "realistic" setting and perhaps an easy one for beginners. As things stand, is easy, normal or hard the "realistic" setting?

    2) Similar to other requests, it would be great to be able to create leagues, edit training facilities, country attributes, finances, youth setup, attributes for physios and coaches as well as players, not to mention the ability to swap players and staff around.

    3) As mentioned above, the Southern Hemisphere half of the game is in need of a lot of TLC and attention!!

    I joined the forum as wanted to share my thoughts on this game. Hope it is a success.

    Hi Andrev,

    Many thanks for your post, and for your support for Rugby Union Team Manager.
    Super Rugby are not one of the licenses within the game, but there has been further work on this, and you will be very pleased to hear that the new editor, is now much more powerful, giving you plenty of opportuities to customise the game. In short with the new Editor, you will be able to :
    >
    - Edit all player attributes
    - Edit unlicensed player names
    - Edit competition names
    - Edit club names
    - Edit club venues
    - Edit staff names
    - Edit staff ratings
    - Edit coach specialties
    - Edit facility ratings
    - Move players to a different club

    - Move staff to a different club

    You will also be pleased to hear that RUTM17 will not have the options Easy, Normal and Hard, instead you will be able to assign Assistants if you wish to, and in addition there are now also Auto options for various features, which you can chose to operate if you wish, such as:-
    Matchday attendance
    Match tactics
    Match interchanges
    Team selection
    Physio assignment
    Doctor assignment
    Training rota selection
    Negotiation offers
    Daily advances

    I do hope this is helpful

    Thanks Dave for you answers. They are much appreciated. The editor sounds very promising, as does the feature allowing the use of auto options, allowing a hands on or a less involved approach. The game sounds very exciting. Looking forward to the new player progression system too.

    It is a shame that the licensing isn't possible for Super Rugby. I am sure it would involve some expensive and complicated hoops to jump through. Even though the players names will be different (hopefully still recognisable!), will players appear in both their Super Rugby and local team?

    Hi Dave,

    Excellent updates. I'll definitely buy for support and to play.

    Kind regards,

    I'm really loving what i'm seeing with this game as it's allowing actual coaching and tactics that console games don't give!

    I'm looking to get the game in the new year and I was looking at Steam to download the editor to name all unlicensed teams with their actual names. I was unable to find the editor on steam or online is the a link to it? or has it simply not been released at this present time?

    It comprises the following clubs :

    North Peninsula – New Zealand
    Canberra – Australia
    Pretoria – South Africa
    Bloemfontein – South Africa
    North Island – New Zealand
    South Island – New Zealand
    Western Australia – Australia
    Dunedin – New Zealand
    Napier – New Zealand
    Johannesburg – South Africa
    Victoria – Australia
    Queensland – Australia
    Durban – South Africa
    Cape Town – South Africa
    New South Wales – Australia
    Eastern Cap – South Africa
    Tokyo – Japan
    Buenos Aires – Argentina


    The players in these teams play exclusively for them, except if selected forRep/Int teams.
    You may also find some of these "draft" screens of interest. as taken from the new Editor, to give you some idea of what to expect,.



    I hope this is helpful, and many thanks for your support.

    The editor comes with the game itself. The Super Rugby teams would obviously match the geographic location Dave provided. So:

    North Peninsula - Blues
    Canberra - ACT Brumbies
    Pretoria - Bulls
    Bloemfontein - Cheetahs
    North Island - Chiefs
    South Island - Crusaders
    Western Australia - Western Force
    Dunedin - Highlanders
    Napier - Hurricanes
    Johannesburg - Lions
    Victoria - Melbourne Rebels
    Queensland - Queensland Reds
    Durban - Sharks
    Cape Town - Stormers
    New South Wales - NSW Waratahs
    Eastern Cape - Southern Kings
    Tokyo - Sunwolves
    Buenos Aires - Jaguares
