  1. Re: New way to deal with concerns So... What was the point of adding the concerns system then? I don't understand why this change was necessary. We all know that player hogging is a serious problem on SM. We also know that the concern system was put in place to alleviate this problem. Now, when the concern system is about to start forcing change, we get a modification allowing the worst abusers of the system to effectively cheat their way out of the needed system change. It doesn't make sense.
  2. Re: Player Concerns (please read the Online Help if looking for help) Ok...got a response back from SM. So, in other words, this is all WAD. It seems very harsh on fitness levels (you have to play your starters, even when they are not fully fit...and backups are going to want to move on to other clubs. More challenging by far than the old way. I predict we will see a lot of player trading to get around the concerns...I'm not sure how I feel about all this. Particularly annoyed that Nasri would post a 67% playing time and still have a concern. Yet, its plausible from a strict reading of
  3. Re: Player Concerns (please read the Online Help if looking for help) If the concerns were working as detailed in the concerns FAQ' date=' than we should not be seeing 'not enough playing time' amongst are star players. This is why I reported the bug (at least I believe it to be a bug) to SM...and so far, SM has not yet shot me down. It seems to me that there is a calculation error there somewhere. Nasri and Fabregas, etc. should not be developing concerns when they are playing >70% of all games they are theoretically fit for. The effects of this calculation error probably are systema
  4. Re: Player Concerns (please read the Online Help if looking for help) If Courois wants out, and Casillas is still going strong, then I sell Courtois, and look for the next young upcoming keeper, in much the same way as I snagged Courtois. The timing of Courtois to replace Casillas obviously didn't work. However, I am still up the +10 or so Courtois has risen while with me...and he is a great bargaining chip with which to negotiate a good deal with. I'm not accusing you of hoarding (yet) as you haven't posted enough details about your squads to make that distinction sure. But your idea of t

  6. Re: Player Concerns (please read the Online Help if looking for help) So, you'll just have to make do with fewer kids. My current squad distribution: 22 first team players (1 GK, 8 Def, 9 Mid, and 4 attackers) 1 - 96 1 - 95 5 - 93 8 - 91 6 - 90 1 - 89 I have a small youth team (also 22 players) whom I pull from occasionally for cup and division games when the first team guys are injured or banned. 2 - 89 4 - 88 2 - 87 2 - 86 2 - 85 3 - 84 3 - 83 3 - 82 1 - 75 I see no reason to exceed this number <50 players, ever. My youth players that are close to the top of the abil
  7. Re: Player Concerns (please read the Online Help if looking for help) My reported bug has been upgraded to 'actual bug' status. Still awaiting an actual reply from SM (though I don't expect an explanation of just how correct I am...just an acknowledgement that they are working on the issue)...but for now I remain hopeful.
  8. Re: Player Concerns (please read the Online Help if looking for help) No. Thibaut Coutois (20 years old, 88 rating) is unhappy because he has not been chosen in front of Iker Casillas (95 rating).

  10. Re: Player Concerns (please read the Online Help if looking for help) Should the following players have concerns about not playing? Samir Nasri AM/W 93 (Highest rated midfielder on team) Total competitive games played while Nasri is not injured: 40 Div 1: 17 (5) Cup: 5 (1) Shield: 2 (0) Champions Cup: 6 (0) By my count, that is 30 of 40 games (75%). I now have a level 1 concern for lack of games. Nani W 93 (Highest rated midfielder on team) Total competitive games played while Nani is not injured: 35 Div 1: 13 (3) Cup: 3 (0) Shield: 3 (0) Champions Cup: 6 (0) By my count that is
