  1. Re: 10k RISER If we can get enough managers, then a 10k riser game world might be fun. I would say that money would not matter, perhaps a squad cap of X amount of players maximum? May be 100? We would only be allowed to buy 70 rated or less, so it would all be about those risers to improve the team, and cups and leagues would really be won by the best tactics! First we need a few more managers. Let me know your manager IDs so I can add you if interested. Marin JAKOLIŠ got some minutes in the Belgium Premier League, he will one day rise to the dizzy heights of 73!
  2. Re: Ultimate Squad Challenge - USC (NEW CHALLENGING GAME WORLD) Hi, I am Jake Buillet, new manager of Raja Casablanca. This looks like a really fun set up starting with no players. Good luck all, Jake
  3. Hi, There used to be a really good thread for 10k risers, but no one has posted to it since the SM changed the p/e values and transfers became pointless. I would love to join a game world where managers could only buy 10k valued players, this would really separate the good managers from the bad over the long term both in tactics and in player scouting. Anyone else interested? In the meantime, here are some 10k risers: Giorgos Masouras Marvin DIOP Mehmet Umut NAYIR Lee EVANS
  4. Re: Players' condition. Does it matter? I've also experienced this quite a bit. I have one team that usually struggles to avoid relegation, the best I have managed is 12th place in EC2 Div1 in 10 seasons. I got a bit bored of SM, the Gold Manager account ran out and I left them alone for a month, not changing anyone in the team. I just got 2nd place in the league. Tired players and no change to tactics. Players were also out of position when injuries happened and were automatically replaced. Not bad. This happened to another team that came 2nd a few seasons ago. The manager had not logged in for 29 days, he just won the cup, but didn't log back in to see his club get 2nd in the league. Seems it's best not to manage at all. I also notice that of the opposition gets a red card, it's usually a good sign that they are about to score a goal and beat you.
  5. Re: The New Players Thread Looks like the rating schedule is back, they have just done Uruguay. Looks like Scotland and Scandinavia soon.
  6. Re: SUPERNAG - NDF's Criminally Underrated SoccerManager Players It's just a bit disappointing or may be pointless trying to help SW. I think they're trying to get the Iranian Skoda conference league updated before any major European leagues. The database grows so quickly it's going to be impossible to keep up to date with ratings. Back to the main subject: Rubén MIÑO 3000 minutes last season for Mallorca. Should go from 80 to 84?
  7. Re: SUPERNAG - NDF's Criminally Underrated SoccerManager Players I added Emmanuel BOATENG a few days ago and it was immediately rejected. He plays for Rio Ave and scored a goal for them early in the season. Emmanuel BOATENG has 298 Portuguese Premier league minutes, 65 minutes in the cup and 241 in the Europa League. Total minutes this season = 604 minutes http://int.soccerway.com/players/emmanuel-okyere-boateng/353107/ I noticed today, SW has new players up. Looked at one at random. Mauro ESTOL has 8 Uruguayan minutes: http://int.soccerway.com/players/mauro-nahuel-estol-rodriguez/355817/ How come a guy with 8 minutes gets to be on the database and a guy with over 600 does not. Same for Joon-ho SON, who I added a while back, he had over 600 minutes then and it got rejected from the SW, he now has 1500 minutes for Pohang Steelers. I'm not going to try and add him again.
  8. Re: SUPERNAG - NDF's Criminally Underrated SoccerManager Players I disagree, it is OUR game, WE are playing it. For me, ratings and risers is by far the most fun part of SM. I want to help make it better! I see that the Soccerway website gets updated with the minutes of players and transfers fairly quickly. How much do they pay for their database? It's a free site and no advertising! Why can't Soccerwiki get this data and then it would automatically adjust players ratings the moment they played enough minutes to qualify for a rise!!!! We wouldn't have to vote. Surely this would be a simple database structure where players are given a team and league max and min rating and a graduated rise and fall table. Now that would be hot stuff!! I could probably program it myself in an Excel sheet and I bet some of you guys already do except that you have to enter the player minutes manually. I do agree that it has fallen apart at the seams, not just in ratings, but in not getting a proper match engine done and spending all their resources inventing this crappy single player mode. If I wanted to play a soccer game alone in a dark room, by myself, their are plenty of one-off payment champion manager DVD type games where I don't have to interact with others!
  9. Re: SUPERNAG - NDF's Criminally Underrated SoccerManager Players If your vote gets accepted, you should get reputation points for that. May be it just needs more people voting on those players. One person's vote isn't enough to change a rating. I'm guessing that it takes a certain number of votes to get SM to look at that player. Would be really good if someone from SM could please tell us actually how they want the system to work and how we can help, as there are some many good scouts on these forums sharing their risers, I'm sure SM could get their ratings almost automated! May be we should experiment, chose an obscure player that we all vote for right now to get a +1. See how many people we can get to vote on it and then see if the rating changes?
  10. Re: SUPERNAG - NDF's Criminally Underrated SoccerManager Players Right, anyone who doesn't have a soccerwiki account, create one now and start voting on these player ratings on this thread. That is what the soccerwiki is for. I sincerely doubt that SM have a massive team of people dedicated to rating adjustments, so that is why they set the wiki up. It's up to us. Personally, I reviewed the Japanese league a while back, I voted each and every rise on the soccerwiki, and so far, about 50% of them have had their rating changed, and with the vast majority, I got the rating change spot on or within 1! Take a look for yourself: http://forum.soccermanager.com/showthread.php?t=169069 (It is a shame I didn't do the fallers too, but I'm selfish and want to make piles of cash in a competitive league.) I think the system of the soccerwiki can work, but it needs to be controlled and designed to stop kids voting Neymar up to 99 because they have him in their squad in a league with no other managers. Therefore, I would suggest you don't simple vote all players in your own squad +5. Soccerwiki does work using account reputations. The higher your reputation, the more likely your vote will be trusted. So if you vote a rating up and you get it correct when it is reviewed, you should get reputation for that. If you want to get some rep point for your new account, go into the Database > Vote > Player Images section and thumbs up to all new photos that you think are better and thumbs down to those that you think are worse. This can earn you some rep points if your vote is "correct". Then you can add new players (one at a time). Thus, you can get more rep points by voting on new players too, just look to see if they have at least 300 minutes of playing time on soccerway or some site like that and then vote yes. Now, everyone, go and vote for all the players on this thread and see if we can't help SM sort it out.
  11. Re: SUPERNAG - NDF's Criminally Underrated SoccerManager Players Jong-Hwan BAEK of Sangju Sangmu. Rated 76 (+1 in Sept 2011). 6000 minutes in the Korean top flight since that date and no change. The teams top player is 85. This guy should get a +8!! http://int.soccerway.com/players/jong-hwan-back/27088/
  12. Re: ☆☆Young-Boy™☆☆ BIG RISERS Sorry, I posted this riser a year ago and still nothing. I have since sold Dmytro Nepogodov as I was tired of waiting. I hope you get the rise soon. Other low rated risers I would expect to get a +2/3 at the same time: Aridane Jesús Santana Cabrera (79) MARÍN, Mario (79) Hiroyuki Abe (78) Imad Zatara (78) Jens Portin (78) Luke FREEMAN (78) Cristian GAITAN (77) Simon LUNDEVALL (77) Pascal GREGOR (75) Also: Sun-Ju PARK (73) of Pohang Steelers, M,AM© in SM, but actually is a defender.
  13. Re: J1 league Yes, leagues like Japan and South Korea are not reviewed often, but they do have some decent risers for that reason, usually a few +3/4 in there. Also, as they are external teams, they sell back to their originals for a bit more than just their value like Unmanaged teams. I only reviewed players that were under 80, so there are probably plenty more to be snapped up. I'll try and keep the list up to date with actual changes in blue.

  15. So, two teams, same rating, same tactic, I'm 2-1 up at half time, great. This is what I would expect, a fairly even match. Then, the opposition gets a red card in the 46th minutes, brilliant! Bring it on! They score two goals and I lose 3-2 They also had almost 70% of the possession (with only 10 men for half the game). This isn't the first time 10 men came from behind, in fact, it's the norm. Sometimes, I have benefited too. So does that mean that having a man sent off is an advantage? Should I be playing aggressive tackling to try and hack for cards as much as possible? Perhaps I could get two men sent off and really give the opposition a drubbing! ----------------------------------------- So I concede defeat and move on to the next game world. I check out the opposition, pretty much all their fitness levels say between 60-70%, some are 40-50%. Bearing in mind the game has already been played and usually players lose 5-10% during a game, then I would say the whole team is between 60-75% fit. All of my players are 100% fit. This is going to be a walk over!! Famous last words as my team concede four goals and only manage to put in two. 50% possession each, but a team of unfit players sure gave me a good hiding, especially towards the end when they really were out of breath! If that wasn't bad enough, just to rub salt into the wound, I had two players injured during the match and they didn't have any. So my question is, do unfit players play better than fit ones and are they less likely to be injured? If that is the case, I'll stick to the same team each week and really run my first eleven into the ground! ----------------------------------------- I've managed to keep a bunch of 87 rated players in the playoffs of a div2 side for 5-6 season on the trot. Never promoted, but always pushing. So I thought I'd really go for it this year, splashed out on a team of 89 and 90 rated players. Half way through the season and I am rock bottom of the league. It's a funny old game world eh?

Also, look out for Joon-ho SON of Pohang Steelers. I tried adding him to the database, but got refused. He only has 600 minutes more than James Wilson so he can't get on the database yet.
  17. Re: The Race to reach 90 - Edition #3 Cam Lucas, yes it was intended as a nomination, I just didn't know if someone else had already bagged him. I'd like to stick with Sardar AZMOUN as long as you're happy that I suggested him before he got to 80, I am surprised he rose so soon!
  18. Re: 60-80 risers Massive Database Cristian GAITAN 77 Loads of minutes since his last rating review in Jan 2011.
  19. Re: The Race to reach 90 - Edition #3 Anyone got Sardar AZMOUN (77) yet?
  20. Re: 60-80 risers Massive Database Click >> Sergio López << Click 75 > 80+
  21. Re: EL SHAARAWI, Stephan hamo? Fr3gY? Anyone else still think he's not going to be any good? I would say he exceeded my prediction and even I under estimated his potential back in 2011.
  22. Re: Buying players for no money when in debt I think we need tougher punishments for teams in the red. The chairman ought to take control of matters and start transfer listing players to pay the debt. Else, the club should go into administration. We need to help make cash worth something again. This will help lubricate the transfer market.
  23. Re: 60-80 risers Massive Database Damien PERQUIS 77 > 82/83/84 Rating has not changed since March 2011!!
  24. Re: 88-87 to 89? Murara NETO Of course, this guy, only 86 rated has got to get a rise to 88 > 89 and may be 90 if Florentina do well.
  25. Re: 88-87 to 89? Juan Jesus May be an obvious one, but Brazilian U23 Olympic and Friendly international may make the 2014 World Cup Team? He's been regular at Inter now for a while, but SM wont rise him to 90/91 until I have sold him on.
