  1. Re: Striker Help ! Yeah, go with Gomez. Villa won't be keeping his 95 for too much longer.
  2. I have both of these players in a new Real Madrid team. I'm trying to trim down the number of highly rated players because of lack of games. I don't really get to see much of La Liga, so would it be advisable to keep them? Both are turning 31 shortly, are they expected the be starting games for Real this season? or looking at being phased out which may lead to them dropping in their ratings. All help appreciated.
  3. Re: Custom Game World creation That's what I was looking for really. Something like that would be different and interesting. Thanks.
  4. Re: £81m for Gotze.... I think you've answered your own question. 81 million is nice, but if there's nothing to spend it on, it's completely pointless. Gotze is an incredible talent, and very young. He will surely rise in future as he matures. Keep him.
  5. Just a question. I was thinking of creating a new GW, I'm wondering what kind of customisation can be done? Can you pick the teams you want in the league? Can you pick the players? Can you decide what players are at what clubs? Is there a way of randomizing which cubs the players are at? Many thanks for any input.
  6. Re: Sell RVP? I did a similar thing with my RVP a few weeks ago. I would also like to suggest Gotze and Jones is a good deal for you. You're going to get more out of them in the long run... I'd also add you should ask for some cash too
  7. Re: Nani If the Hazard deal is not available, you need to weigh up a few things. What can you buy with the money? Are there players you can spend it on? Valenica is certainly not going to drop, Fergie seems keen on him so he's going to get regular games and possibly hit a 93 (I think he has it in him). I feel Nani will probably leave United within the next year, too. If you can invest the cash you'll be getting in something better than both of them, I'd do it.
  8. Re: Subotic Depends on what's available in your GW, but if he's available, I'd certainly pick him up.
  9. Re: Player Concerns (please read the Online Help if looking for help) I guess you could say I've conformed to the new rules. I've now got all of my 6 teams down to a squad of around 22 first team players. 14/15 rated 90+ and the rest 83-89 youth. What we're going to be looking at is a game where you are constantly recycling players around and not relying on your squad remaining a happy unit for years and years. The more I think about it now, the more i can understand it all. I just wish we were given fair warning about it, and not have the rug swept from under our feet.
  10. Re: Player Concerns (please read the Online Help if looking for help) Re Wilshere - I can understand that, considering he is 11th choice CM. I'm one of the people that say Concerns need addressing, but, 11th choice? How would this ever happen IRL? As far as concerns go, Since I've dropped all my first teams to around 22, I haven't had any new concerns or any developments to the existing ones.
  11. Re: Is more gold worlds making it less fun? It's just the cycle with this game. When you start, you're more than happy to pick up a poor side, but as you continue to play, (and especially if you're paying for SM) you will want one of the bigger teams. Nothing wrong with that. I started on SM as West Brom, in a English Championship that was mostly occupied by the time I got there. I did a good job buying low to decent players, and scouting youth, and eventually built my squad upto an average 91 over a 12 month period.I went on to buy Gold, and try my hand in a GC... I currently have a Notts County team who I'm trying to bring up......But I still went and bought my own GW for friends to play in, and picked Man United, then later reserved a Real Madrid because I wanted to have Ronaldo. There's no right or wrong way to play this game. I don't mind if some people are happy to play in 90% empty GW's, aslong as that doesn't impact on my teams.
  12. Re: Is more gold worlds making it less fun? I'm not too bothered about the GC's opening, providing this doesn't have any impact on me and my own. The money they will be making surely will be used to ensure the servers are up to scratch and can handle the pressure. As for it in general, I can completely see why they're doing this. They are at the end of the day, a business. As above, they haven't fooled anyone, and if there is a demand, they would be silly not to capitalize, and they are doing so in turn. For the money, it's a pretty good investment. I spend a hell of a lot of time on this site, and despite some of the issues I have with 'Concerns', I really enjoy SM on a whole.
  13. Re: Player Concerns (please read the Online Help if looking for help) I absolutely commend you for putting that together, thanks alot. But it goes to show how ridiculous playing this game is right now. We should never have to resort to this kind of thing just to be able to play. There is no fun in having to do that at all. Better yet, it was just lumbered on us without warning, effecting heavily something that I have paid money for. Thanks again for that though, SML.
  14. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... Higuain is available in my gameworld, but to buy him I'm gonna need to get rid of Robin Van Persie because of concerns. Wise move or not?
  15. Re: Player Concerns (please read the Online Help if looking for help) Thank you for that. I honestly thought that the player that was coming off only gets half an appearance.
  16. New game world, still at reserve club stage. Only Real Madrid, Man City and Barca are taken. Spend a few coins and come join. European Championship 3719 ID:140106
  17. Re: Player Concerns (please read the Online Help if looking for help) Just a question on rotating players, Is is favourable to use substitutions or not? Can you get concerns down quicker if you substitute often? I don't tend to use subs at all. But obviously, the number of games work out the same.
  18. Re: Just took over, need help with who to sell From the reading the concerns thread, you need a maximum of about 14 players rated 90+, anything else and there's just not enough games to fit everyone in without getting concerns.. It's a broken system and very unfair as we've all stated, but that's the system were working under. I had 8 teams 2 weeks ago, around eighteen 90+ players in each with a bunch of youth too. You can rotate all you want, but the expectations will be too high, you'll get concerns with your lesser players, so in turn, you'll play them more, which in turn will get you concerns with your better players. The whole thing is like domino rally which is very difficult to stop, and not very fun at all. I've since sacked off 3 of my teams because the whole thing was way too time consuming.
  19. Re: Just took over, need help with who to sell Read the concerns thread
  20. Re: Just took over, need help with who to sell I would say you need to sell a few more of those. You have around twenty 90+ players in that team. You will be ravaged by concerns when they start up.
  21. Re: Player Concerns (please read the Online Help if looking for help) The above is so true. You can't even pick up a fresh team, which has exactly the same players as the real life team, without concerns happening (even with healthy rotation) I myself have just taken over a brand new Man City club, and shipped out both Adebayor and Dzeko, because both will not get the playing time they want, behind Tevez, Kun and Ballotelli. Despite both being quite happy to be non starters at Manchester City in real life. #FixSMconcerns
  22. Re: Player Concerns (please read the Online Help if looking for help) This, 1,000,000 times.
  23. Re: Player concerns system It's such a broken system and it's punished a lot of people severely. I've quit 2 of my teams recently because managing all the concerns of 7 teams was way too time consuming, and killed a lot of the fun for me. The remaining teams I have I'm working on dropping the squads down to a bare minimum of 22. 11 x 90+ rated 11 x 83-89 Teenagers. I feel this is the only way to go and it seems such a ****** work around to have to do, just to be able to play this game without having to be working out ratios and stuff. The system in place now is just terrible. Once a player develops a concern, it's damn near impossible to turn it around, without other players developing concerns. The whole thing is a domino effect that is unstoppable and no way resembles a real life situation, as some people on this forum try to claim. Join me on Twitter: #FixSMconcerns
