    Did you start a new game with the club called FC Midtjylland?
  2. The following changes have been made to the Game World economies to fix all issues with the old system. We believe this will give money a meaning, penalise excessive player hogging, make the game more fair, and benefit promoted smaller clubs to compete more on par with teams in their new division. The bullet point changes are below… Remove transfer budgets from the game, setting the club balance to either the club balance or old transfer budget, which ever is greater. No clubs lose money with the initial change. Clubs can not do transfers when club balance is in debt. Back to the old system where badly managed club finances are penalised. Calculate the wage budget of a league as it currently stands, and then the leagues overall income is set at this, (e.g. total league gate receipts + TV revenue = wages). Fixed for all time. This is a one off, and used as an anchor on the overall Game worlds money supply, meaning the value of money in the game will be kept over time. 50% of league income is divided equally in TV money. Allowing smaller clubs to have a fair share of the TV cash pot. The other 50% of the leagues income is divided up between the clubs depending on their gate receipts. TV revenue is now awarded to clubs when they play both at home and away. Custom Game World league incomes set by the Game World owner. Each league can be set differently. [very rich, rich, average, poor, very poor]. This should allow fantasy setup Game Worlds to operate as they wish in terms of money supply. (This will be coming in in the next few days) All the net worth (assets + cash) of all the clubs in a league is calculated as they currently stand, and an average club net worth figure calculated for that league. Fixed for all time. Once a month the chairman comes along and makes sure there are no clubs whose net worth is less than 50% of the average clubs in the divisions net worth. If they are then the Chairman will invest money. This ensures smaller clubs net worth will not be below a certain figure relative to the league its in, and no club will fall so far into debt that it doesn’t have enough assets to sell to bring itself into a positive balance. The chairman no longers invests at the start of a new season, instead it is periodically invests throughout a season, making sure the club has funds to compete releative to other teams in the league. Clubs will start with their attendances in line with their real life attendances. Clubs that get promoted will have their attendances increase towards the average of the new division. Clubs that get relegated will have their attendances decrease towards the average of the new division. Promoted clubs stadiums will gradually be built bigger, towards the average of the new division, 4000 seats a season. More fans will come as you tend towards the top of the league, and less fans will come when you tend towards the bottom of the league. The last 5 changes will allow smaller clubs gate receipts to move into line with bigger clubs, as they move up the leagues. Since they get the same TV revenue as the big clubs in the league (TV revenue being 50% of league income), they can compete more evenly than before but still giving big clubs a slight advantage.

  10. Re: OH DEAR SOCCER MANAGER... OH DEAR SERIOUSLY Vandalised you have now been suspended for one week to cool off, you have not added anything constructive to this forum, and have just insulted a lot of people with imature posts. SM have stated earlier in the year that we will be looking into the match engine, and this will be redeveloped later in the year. I am now closing this post before it gets out of hand with certain people posting unconstructive posts.
  11. Stadium upgrades

    Re: Stadium upgrades It is a good idea zizkovben, and you are welcome to keep them coming (but try and avoid duplicates ). The issue of stadia is being addressed, and is currently on our list of improvements. The idea of increasing capacity though as still not been decided though . Should a manager be able to upgrade his/her stadium as and when they wish? Should the Chairman give his/her manager the option to upgrade at end of season? What will the cost be per thousand seats? Available in just Custom/Gold Setups, or every setup? So many factors will have to be looked into and discussed prior to this new feature.

  13. Re: Cheaters - Point deduction/relegation Sorry about that I thought you were trying to debate results in general, not results in relation to cheating. If you want to make suggestions re fixing results feel free.

  15. Chairman and manager relationship

    Re: Chairman and manager relationship In theory this is a good idea, but in practice it is a bad idea. When we get reports of cheating within a setup, it is not just new managers (or new accounts) which are or are trying to cheat, as you can get managers with ANY repuation cheating (including Gold Members). So if you were to give them more trust from the Chairman, then the cheats would simply abide by the rules for x weeks, and then they would try and work the system. I am not shooting this idea down fully, but for normal setups it is a no go, but I can not see why it can not be looked into for Custom Setups.
