  1. We can look at changing the cap to be higher and look at increasing attendances.
  2. It means the team with the most cash will be able to bid the most. This doesn't always mean the bigger clubs, many clubs who don't have great squads are cash rich but can't buy players. This will help them. We have increased the wages of just the top 350 or so players. Other players have had wage decreases. So again thi sjust effects top clubs, making it harder for them. It also benefits the smaller clubs in the way the Game Worlds finances are worked out. This is how GW finances currently work (all figures are examples): GW Income is equal to GW outgoings (so GWs don't get flooded with m
  3. Hi guys, we are in actual fact changing this system and have just finalised a new one which is simpler and fairer. We are setting up a forum test game world in the next few days to trial it out in. Keep your eyes peeled for a post from us which will be asking for people to join this test game world to get your views and feedback on the new system. Cheers
  4. Hi Guys, we have finally got to the bottom of the problem and we are pleased to say that this is just a display issue. Prize money is being awarded correctly but it doesn't immediately update the clubs balance while you are on the game. We have now added a fix in for this so that the balance will increase immediately whilst you are on the game.
  5. We are currently implementing a whole host of improvements to the multiplayer over the coming months. You will see some major improvements, not least a new match engine and interface. We are splitting our dev team to work equally on both games.
  6. Re: New Finances (Loans / Contracts) Hi Guys, We have been reading this thread and ii's an interesting discussion. I'd like to address some of the points raised. 1) Its now harder for smaller clubs. Not quite sure this is true. It has always been harder for smaller clubs. The bigger clubs have always started off with better players, more money, bigger stadiums and fans and in the top divisions so had more TV Revenue etc. That is how the game is, its easy to be a bigger team and harder to be a smaller one and build them up. We haven't changed anything there. The changes we have made pe
  7. Re: New Finances (Loans / Contracts) Hi, We have made a few changes to finances recently with the intention of tightening the finances and giving cash a 'value' again. This will hopefully stimulate the transfer market which frankly has become very stagnate in many Game Worlds as no manager needs to sell as they have so much cash! It also should naturally form a squad cap and stop player hogging as one club should not be able to afford all the best players and a squad of 255 players. So what have we changed? 1) We have closed a major loophole regarding loans, by having a wage split of 50/5
  8. Re: Game World News Feed - updated This is exactly the direction the News Feed is going to be moving in and one of the reasons we have made it more central to the club page. (Not everything above however!) Over the next few weeks more interesting stories will start to come in.
  9. Re: AI to choose from all 24 formations So this unmanaged club that you are monitoring has played in its last 5 games the following formations: 433 wingers 4132 442 diamond 4231 4132 I think a pattern can be seen there. It seems to play 4 at the back and then 4 in midfield and 2 up front. (The difference between 4132 and 442 diamond is minimal, 4132 just has the wide players tucked in slightly) So 3/5 formations have been the same. The unmanaged clubs also takes into consideration fitness so a bit of squad rotation will happen. Going back to the status quo of unmanaged teams picking
  10. Re: AI to choose from all 24 formations Hi, The AI does not now pick a 'random' formation from the 24 available formations, quite the opposite. It used to purely pick a random formation, either 4-4-2, 4-3-3 or 4-5-1. Now it picks a formation based on the strengths of its squad and you should start to see clubs picking the same or very similar formations. Therefore by looking at a clubs squad and available players, and also their recent past formations you should be able to work out what type of formation they will play against you in their next match. For example, if an unmanaged squad ha
  11. Re: Player Concerns (please read the Online Help if looking for help) Yes this is definitely something we are considering doing.
  12. Re: Player Concerns (please read the Online Help if looking for help) Going forward, Phil Jones as an 89 rated will expect to play 30-40% of games if you have 11 better players than him in your squad. So he will expect to play 11-15 games a season. These could come in a combination of cup and league starts and/or subs appearances.
  13. Re: Player Concerns (please read the Online Help if looking for help) Hi, Just to add to Ste's post yesterday. We have updated the help AND tweaked the way concerns work. A few months back we closed some loopholes in the concerns system and made the concern system more harsh. Based on the feedback we have received and from our internal statistics and experiences we have reviewed the concerns system again. This has meant that the concerns have been made slightly more lenient and are now based on the information provided in the on-line help. Therefore going forward you should see less conc
  14. Re: Cutting size of WC's and EC's Hi Guys, You are right we have cut some Game Worlds that we create down to 2 divisions. However there will still be EC's with 5 divisions and WC's with 4 divisions being created but just less of them. Anyone buying a standard Game World will still create this larger type. So the larger ones will still be there available everyday but the smaller ones will be created at a higher proportion. The reasons for this are obvious, most people are only interested in the top division clubs and a few in the second division, the rest of the divisions rarely get any cl
