  1. Is there a way to do this? it is of course regarding a SMFA deal reversal which has left me pretty cheesed off (having spent two years trying to get a good club in GGW finally got one and just had my transfers reversed right in the middle of the season. For absolutly no reason at all.) I support the SMFA it does what it does but when there is no issue with either account to either persons knowledge and neither have ever had any dealings prior just seems very very unfair that this would happen when we have both been gold members for two years and we all know what its like when your building a team up you get into it then it gets pulled away and i feel pretty naffed off with it to tell you the truth. Legitimate deals that get reversed really i cannot see why that occurs. If the SMFA read our pm's you would see the deal as a whole clearly. I know im ranting a little but would like an explanation, i think the whole notion of 'thats the way it is and deal with it' attitude towards the SMFA is really dissrespectfull and toward players who have always gone into the game with a positive attitude and played the game the right way without any cheating to get burned by something like this on a game world that i am really enjoying is frustrating to say the least. As you ALL know there are players that people want, you can't just say 'oh just leave that manager and dont deal with them' as they have the key players you wish to recruit and are willing to pay for them. This has really soured my experience on this game, and is very dissapointing having recruited maybe 30-40 people into the game over two years. Not very happy SM.

  2. Re: Custom Game World: New Advanced Rule

    The draft Game World is currently being tested in a Game World called 'World Draft League'.

    The feature is likely to be available to everyone by the end of the month.

    Any thoughts on the optional removal of chairman max bids mate? as an option for custom worlds. The idea behind it being that experienced managers who have a good idea of player values can make more realistic bids. For example Ashley Young is a great prospect and would be worthy of a very decent bid however the chairman max bid is around 14 mil... I mean couple that with the fact someone like Adam Johnson is 11mil its 100% impossible to even make a worthy bid. Im not suggesting this to roll out over all GW just as an option on custom worlds. CGW run well would massively benefit from this and allow potential to come into play.

  3. Re: Smfa

    Manager Name: Dave Robinson

    Player Name: Andres Iniesta

    Game World Name: English Championship 3791

    Game World ID: 27849

    Any other info: As fas as im aware i am not in any other GW with the other manager and have not done any deals with him previously. Im not sure how long he has been at the club but it has been a mimimum of a few months, although it could be 2 years or more as the league is in season 6.

    I made many different bids all of which were blocked.. I can post them all if need be? Iniesta is the target player and i am the buying manager.

  4. Re: What the hell

    im sorry but this is really something stupid i have found on sm' date=' when i play and the report comes in i find i am losing by 1 goal, and checking the match stats usually the opposition would have 3-4 shots on target whilst i would have something like 15. this has happened over and over and really getting annoying

    i lost out on a league, world cups and countless other trophies because my team would shoot around 25 shots ON TARGET but fail to get a goal?

    i find that really really annoying and would like an explanation why this happens :mad::mad::mad::mad:[/quote']

    Try watching Arsenal mate, sounds pretty realistic to me

  5. Re: SMFA Blocks

    No my one is different... those transfers always go through like EC89 Arsenal manager and Liverpool manager always create many new accounts to bid their players in double price now they are have a squad worth more than 700M each:mad:

    If this is actually the case and not just your opinion then you yourself can simply flag the transfer or match result as being dubious and SM will investigate it.

  6. Re: SMFA Blocks

    Totally AGREE!! The whole blocking system is too strict! A fair deal ended up BLOCK by SMFA!! HATE IT MAN!!! DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT SM... :mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad:

    I agree bud but give them a chance, they have said they are looking into it and fingers crossed the new thread will be made on monday/tuesday next week so we will be able to put some of the blocked transfers in the limelight and perhaps they will be reversed or better still the whole system given a shake up. Patience guys hopefully something will happen next week.

  7. Re: PE DEALS-WHEN it will be REMOVED

    Of course. Also unlike in real life' date=' most people tend to get rid of 3/4-their full squad. Also unlike in real life, I can get players like Ross Turnbull, Alcantara and such at a Division 5 team. Unlike in real life, I technically don't have a wage budget while 1 of those players in real life would take the whole thing up, let alone these said players would have no idea who the team is. Changing one part of SM, IE: just changing one thing about transfers isn't going to work. I do however like your idea only because it drops the chance of you getting such players that you could absolutely never get in real life.[/quote']

    Well said mate.

    To be honest i think this topic is finished, SM have installed an option for this in custom game worlds which is very good as i think many of us like the idea of it for maybe one of our teams. However the VAST majority of people (99% of votes so far) do not want this and therefore its unlikely to go any further. SM have made a really handy and good compromise to add it as a custom feature where i for one will be trying it out. But lets not get carried away and demand it be rolled out over the entire game which would only succeed in ruining a major part of the game and alienating new players from using teams below the top division.

  8. Re: SMFA Blocks

    Lets see how it goes, im feeling positive about it, im pleased that SM have noticed there is a need to address this issue which is a big step forward to making it better! Fingers crossed if we work with SM we can fix some of the old issues and tweak their program that i can allow the longer term dedicated managers a little more freedom while still catching the little cheats!! ;-)

    PS:Stuart H, love the shark gif, very funny mate

  9. Re: Custom Game World: New Advanced Rule

    I'm sorry if I haven't responded' date=' but we will shortly be introducing two more features/rules to Custom Game Worlds. One of which will be related to starting balances and the other to a draft system, but do not hold me to this as this could change.[/quote']

    Steve mate, is there any movement on the optional removal of Chairman 'max' bids for custom game worlds? This would certainly ignite some interesting transfers among private custom worlds where potential value really comes into play. Be interested to hear your thoughts bud.

  10. Re: SMFA Blocks

    We will be opening a new thread next week and we will be asking people to post deals that they believe should not have been blocked in it.

    We will then investigate each of these deals to see if the system can be improved or whether it is working correctly.

    Great work bud, im sure many people will really appreciate you guys looking into this, nice one John :)

  11. Re: SMFA Blocks

    I think that's the main gripe mate, yes its frustrating when a deal falls through but one deal in a while, yea we can get over that its only a game. What gets our goat i think is when it happens repeatedly and with no explanation. I see why they don't allow us to see the workings of the system but there should be some explanation, the longer you remain in a gameworld the more deals you seem to get blocked. This should be if anything a total reverse...no?

  12. Re: PE DEALS-WHEN it will be REMOVED

    Realism is one thing but this IS a game not reality. If you want the game to be totally realistic then messi will never move, all the arsenal players will automatically leave for man city a year before their contracts are up, and you will have to deal with WP issue...so no the GAME is not realistic but it IS alot of fun. P/x deals make it alot of fun and without them you would hardly ever see transfers during a season.

    Now im not saying a gameworld without P/x could not be fun among the right players, infact i think it could be alot of fun and im seeing your point however rolling this out across the gameworlds would kill the game 100%. As an option on custom worlds, now that could be alot of fun. (Im not sure if there is an option there for that or now, someone correct me but i think there may be one already)

  13. Re: SM's performance over the last 18 months...

    although i don't like the new layout i am seeing its usefulness if they are planning on rolling SM out as an App so fair play ill just have to get over that. (although i would have liked an option to keep it the same, still..change and evolve and all that)

    However i am very disappointed to STILL see no improvement on the ridiculous SMFA transfer blocking system which ruins games for experienced and loyal players FAR more than stopping the little cheats..

    Add to that the chairman MAX bids which still do my swede in as there is such a massive difference between clubs in what your allowed to offer. And not just a couple mil for big players it can be as much as 30mil. I would understand for example if you have no money or have a small squad or some other criteria but there is no logic to it at all. Silly and frustrating on custom worlds amongst friends especially.

    What worries me alot more is the lack of any contact from them regarding in particular the SMFA blocks issue which has led to MANY people leaving, to me it seems this is obviously causing many many good honest players to leave and frustrating many others, this MUST be addressed if they take themselves at all seriously they must look at what their customers are saying.

  14. Re: Chairman's Valuations on CUSTOM game worlds.

    is the maximum limit the same for all the teams????

    not even close, for some reason there are MASSIVE differences between teams. for example my max bid for Messi is 30mil or more less than that of other teams. This is exactly why i see this system as being frustrating and spoiling custom worlds where there is no need for anti-cheat systems

  15. Re: SMFA Blocks

    Again a ridiculous deal blocked, 6th season so not exactly a new manager, finally worked a deal out to bring Iniesta to Notts Forrest and it gets blocked, we have tried a couple different deals but all have been blocked. It is just really frustrating that even after a long negotiation with the HUMAN manager and with both HUMAN managers happy and both have been in set-up for a long time, neither have ever been in any other gameworlds together, neither have ever been banned or had any infractions against them,neither have ever traded in this gameworld prior to this deal and yet it gets blocked immediately with no explanation...this is just rubbish!

  16. Re: SMFA Blocks

    For me the really worrying thing is that no one takes any notice, i run a small business and if there was a significant number of people commenting on a REAL issue then i would at least make mention of it. If i did nothing i would be naive to think the customers will simply keep coming back simply because they always have in the past.In SM terms even if nothing is done show support by at least explaining it to us in more detail. That way we can either work around it or create some mechanism to show your innocence and thus allow the deal to go through. I really feel for this guy who's trying to buy Messi its pretty harsh after getting the OK from the selling manager only to be thwarted by a computer program which then bans you indefinitely.

    SM must realise that a lot of those people who are complaining here are not new players who have not read the rules but seasoned gold members who support and very much want to continue supporting the game but are finding it hard to stomach as we pay for our teams and memberships only to have a fundamentally flawed system prevent us from actually playing the game as it was intended.

    Please wake up SMFA and ACT or at least have the decency of explaining some of the more ludicrous decisions..

  17. Re: SMFA Blocks

    What worries me to be honest is the lack of official response and the nonchalant manner in which the SM team seem to treat this obvious issue.

    This IS an issue and has many people either leaving or cancelling memberships.

    Brothers should NOT have to pay just to be able to play in a game world together in a 'free to play' fun game.

    I am 100% behind routing out cheats and back the SMFA to do that. However they MUST see that clearly in attempting to stop cheats it is massively hindering good honest managers many of whom are long standing members who are active and contribute a lot to the forums.

    This is an issue which i fear will not be addressed along with the chairman maximum bids which make no sense in custom game worlds to me and have really effected my personal enjoyment.

  18. Re: Custom Game worlds idea

    sorry to knock down an idea but i dont agree with this at all, part exchange makes this game alot of fun (well until chairman MAX bids have ruined it) and it allows a much more flexible and dynamic valuation system, what is cash in the game really? so long as you have enough to stay in the black its pretty pointless (in decent gameworlds anyway) having a player that you have snapped up at 75 and watched him develop in real life gives not only more satisfaction and empathy toward you team but like the previous poster mentioned it allows smaller clubs to compete if you use skill and transfer wisdom.

    That said if you really want to see it as an 'option' in custom gameworlds i have no issue with that, i agree custom worlds do need more 'custom' about them, i for on want to see an option in private gameworlds to remove the MAX bid chairman rule which ruins the game once everyone is bought and only serves to improve bigger teams as their chairman seem to allow so much higher max bids than us smaller teams, so yes im in favour of more options of customisation for the Custom game world owner to play with.

  19. Re: Toni Kroos or Mario Gotze ?

    Did exactly the same swap a while back Ramires for Gotze, cant go wrong with the little German, he's top class!

    And Szezesny over Courtois at this stage, i must admit ive seen alot less of TC but he looks to be rated very highly and will likely be filling De Gea's boots at AM this year so we can see how he goes there. The pole in the goal is great however and has big potential, shame no one has told him to come for crosses but apart from that he's great.

  20. Re: Neymar to 90

    Impossible to compare him to Wilshire and Gotze, He has been in the first team for longer than both as Jack and Mario only really came into their respective first teams (not including loan spells) last term. Wilshire is for me pure class and Gotze ive watched since, well quite a while, i hope both make it to the top and im sure they will.

    I am happy to see Neymar hit 90, especially while he was still at Santos, he deserves it and has been superb for them in all competitions, also knocking around the NT and with a big potential move to one of Europe's top clubs mooted for Christmas time really nice to see him get his 90 before then. This way his contribution is being acknowledged now and the quality of the brazilian league appreciated.

    Jack and Mario will be 90 very soon, so i wouldn't worry too much about their ratings development. 75-89 in one season for Dortmund isnt bad going in my book.

  21. Re: Chairman's Valuations on CUSTOM game worlds.

    Tho i dont agree with totally Removing the limit' date=' as that would make the gameworld too unbalanced, bewteen big clubs and small clubs.

    I think that removing the limit (in private gameworlds with private application) would advantage too much the big clubs, as they would always have the best players to exchange and could always do the bigger offer compared to a small club.


    The thing is mate its not the little clubs that are loosing out necessarily, more often it is the smaller clubs with one or two decent players where someone like Ashley Young is worth 13mil and is one of their best players, if he wants to sell him he can only really demand an 88 and perhaps a 83 rated player nothing close to his actual value. I for one would offer alot more if i could for such a great prospect, thus benefiting the 'smaller' team in this example. I do see your point mate and perhaps raising it would help but i dont always think only the big clubs would benefit.

    For me and in our game world the transfer market stagnates as big players are simply worth more than the chairman allow, no one will sell unless someone like Chelsea make a bid with their players being worth less to the chairman and thus able to sneak in a bid, this is not benefiting the 'smaller' team but the bigger team no?

    I do see your point but i stand by the suggestion to have an optional removal with perhaps a further option to increase the values in between. Then its down to the discretion of the game world owner to decide how he feels he wants to use this feature.

  22. Re: SMFA Blocks

    Has anyone else made a thread to try and give custom game world owners the OPTION to turn off the MAXimum chairman bids? They are totally ruining our competitive world where the transfer market is already stagnant and in danger of shutting up completely, cash has no value and big player game world values are much higher than the SM value and the chairmen are stopping clubs making decent worthy bids! For example Leo Messi is ofcourse highly sought after and i would be more than willing to part with my best players to see him at my club, i offer Higuain and Fabregas a deal which is likely too low for him anyway yet will not even be allowed by my chairman.. Surely in a private gameworld this should be optional to remove this very very frustrating feature in an otherwise brilliant game. The game works so well for me because it does not have massive limits like the FM/CM games of old, i mean if i skimped and saved i could in theory bring Ronaldo to Newport Town FC.. yes unrealistic but hellova good fun. Now this feature is getting in the way of that freedom, while i understand its use to stop cheating in a normal gameworld and support it, i would love to see an option to remove it on custom worlds. Again i repeat as on my other thread people seem to misread my post, i am merely suggesting this as an optional removal for custom game worlds only thus allowing big players to be part exchanged for fair and realistic values in highly competitive game worlds.
