For many, testing FM for a job is the dream! Meet Tony, a man you can be jealous of…

Name: Tony Fallows
Role: QA Match Engine Lead
Team supported: Oxford United

1. What is your role at Sports Interactive and what does it involve day-to-day?
I’m in charge of overseeing all testing for the Match Engine. Me and my team investigate all aspects of the way Football Manager replicates 90 minutes of football. From tactical instructions to player roles, team talks to pesky tests of realism. If it doesn’t look like real football then we’re on the case.

2. What’s the best thing about working at Sports Interactive?
Without a doubt it’s being able to influence the direction of a game that I’m passionate about. Before working here I would spend hours with my friends fiercely debating the pros and cons of the latest version of FM and now I get to try and help solve some of those cons.

3. If you could give one piece of advice to someone looking to work in a role similar to yours, what would it be?
Have passion and get your foot in the door. Both clichés, but both true. If you are crazy about football and Football manager then that’s a good start. From there try and get involved in whatever way you can. I started off volunteering as an Assistant Researcher providing the data for Oxford United.

4. What are your interests and past times outside of work?
Follow the fortunes of the famous #BearSkyllz 5-a-side team @BearSkyllz

5. What’s the best game tip you can give to someone to do better on Football Manager?
Be patient. Sometimes people give up on their tactics too quickly, or rush to make tweak after tweak. Just like in real life, you sometimes need to give your team time to settle into a philosophy.

That’s all from us for the time being. Until next time…happy managing and enjoy theFM15 Beta!
