  1. I should have joined the group earlier, would have been leading with a good margin. OH well, I can make up the gap pretty easily at this rate
  2. I had to come back here purely because of how amazing this is. I'm glad that it was Leicester who won it, because I couldn't stand Spurs winning the league. But in general, practically everyone is happy they won (unless you're a Spurs fan). They really are, "the people's champions".
  3. I'll be on my way now.
  4. One more thing, people don't want to waste money/time on something that is volatile.
  5. One that is probably too late to do, but just maybe will work: How about listening to your user base on what they want, and setting realistic goals that could be achieved? I've been gone for a while, I've terminated my account with 15k SM credits in it a long time ago, and was just checking here for nostalgia, hoping that some things could be fixed, but everything I've seen today has no nostalgia of the past. All it has is protest that you, the devs, have failed to solve, and some cases, stirred it up even more. How about being honest, instead of going in the opposite direction? How about actually solving the problems that matter, and will ultimately save your user base? How about actually thinking first before you impact the game irrevocably? Maybe, just maybe, you'll actually solve your problems? I know I'm going to get warned or something, but I don't care. This is the truth. So maybe, this time, let's look at how people feel.
  6. I am sorry to say that I will be leaving SM, and for good this time. Soccer Manager has just been dying ever since, and it no longer feels fun anymore. Have a good one everyone. (666 posts, what a number to end on!)
  7. If they can get the features of the interface working, I'm perfectly fine with the dark interface. Fun fact: if you go to the shortlist tab you can see that the value of the players is way higher than it should be. For example, Emre Can, who is worth 9,960,000, reads 9960.0M in the shortlist tab.
  8. I've been on Pavillion Test World 2 for over a week now, and I've only been able to complete out transfers. When I got Porto, there was 5 center backs in all, with some being 82 or below.(A unmanaged club shouldn't let this happen). I attempting a couple of offers, all being turned down even when offered max price. The thing is, there is always a amount that a club will accept for all but players like Messi and Ronaldo, but the min/max bid limits don't allow clubs to reach it. I would be perfectly willing to spend 8M+ on a 86 CB in order to fill the gaps in my squad, but that is higher than the 5M max bid. Finally, I haven't really been active on that world, yet I get major win after major win.
  9. So I had to type this up....again,..because the crap forum system decided it wanted to perform a Big Brother in silencing what I wanted to say (I'm kidding) by relogging me, Everyone who plays the SM Worlds part of the game knows that ads are displayed on the game screen. People who have played for not even a long time have seen the, "Date Arab Women", or "Filipino Singles," or whatever it is and have put up with it for a while. But today, a ad that was displayed showed a little more than just your regular ad of these kinds (you know what I mean) (I didn't screenshot and post here it for obvious reasons). As SM has described in their brand new trailer for SM 2016, people play SM in a variety of settings, including work. It is definitely not cool when one of those ads come up in such a setting. So I am asking SM to please tone down the content of the ads that are displayed on the game portion of the web. Now, I know that this has been presented before, and all sorts of points were made against such a proposal. I have sufficient rebuttals for all of the major ones. Why don't you just download AdBlock? SM should cater to the average person, not just people that it tells to get AdBlock. Also, some people don't like/can't download and get such things to work. Also, if a admin told a person to install it, they are being a idiot because for every user that installs AdBlock, SM gets less money. We can't tone down the content displayed in the ads. I call a great disgusting growth of rot on this. Let me explain why. There was a now-completely shutdown for financial reasons music service called plug.dj. They did not want to have ads on the site, and in the final days of the service, they had to. One person asked the people who ran the service why weren't the ads producing enough revenue for them. The reasons were: a) 75% of the users used AdBlock or some other adblocking service (oh, the irony!) and They did not want to have the really odd "dating" ads plastered across users' screens, so they didn't get as much money from the ads as they would if they had allowed it. The cinch? They had a similar or the same exact ad service as SM does now (and even if I'm wrong, it shows there is a ad service that does do such a thing). If SM doesn't want to do it, it's because they want to make money (which in all reality, is hypocritical if they say to download AdBlock) or something else, but not that they can't do it. Your search history determines the ads that are displayed. Oh, really? I didn't know that having a public computer that wipes its cookies and history every time someone else logs in brings up those dating ads. I also didn't know that if you search for anything but "arab women" and "dating", you get those dating ads. So please consider what I have said, as I do not want to play a game where such inappropiate ads are plastered across my page. If you want me to show the example of a admin telling someone to install AdBlock I found while searching for topics like this, I'll be obliged to provide the proof. I don't mean this with hard feelings, its just that SM has not been doing a good job with customer relations in general recently.
  10. We are Division 4 Champions! 2 more divisions to go! Hopefully I will be handsomely rewarded to finish my squad
  11. He could easily rise, and he could easily not. Defenders' rating cap is lower than other positions, and making him a 93 would make him one of the best left backs in the game. Personally, I say no. But the progress bar to 93 is |========= |90% for me, so someone who feels differently could make him a 93.
  12. Reserved for just in case.
