  1. Re: Changes needed in F(RLC) position Mate' date=' please look at the screenshots that I posted in my second post. The evidence is there.
  2. Re: Changes needed in F(RLC) position Well I watch every Real Madrid game and I am absolutely certain Benzema and Higuain have played on the flanks of Mourinho's 4-2-3-1 a few times. As far as Van Persie goes' date=' the Dutch national team uses 4-2-3-1 and he also plays on the flanks sometimes. http://i.imgur.com/q4zWWgV.jpg As far as Cavani and Luis Suarez goes, Uruguay tends to experiment on various formations but both of them have also played on the flanks of a 4-2-3-1. http://i.imgur.com/FxJ0yyW.jpg http://i.imgur.com/ni4gm9K.jpg As far as David Villa goes, I think you're right that he plays wide on a 4-3-3.
  3. I think there is a bit of confusion specifically about the 4-2-3-1 formation and the F(RLC) position. Players like Van Persie, Benzema, Higuain, Cavani, Luis Suarez, and David Villa can and have played on the flanks of a 4-2-3-1 either in their club or national sides. But in SM they are not allowed to do so with the F(RLC) position. Either enable that position to play there, or add an AM(RL) to their positions. I hope this post doesn't get buried down because I think this is an important change.
  4. Re: Random SM bid... This happened just now on 2 of my Manchester United clubs. Glad to know SM has addressed this quickly.

  6. Re: Player Valuation in P/E Transfers I think this is the wrong way to get about it. I agree the P/E needed fixing, but this is a bit exaggerated. When you propose a P/E to any club(managed or unmanaged), their chairman immediately slaps a +5M to their normal value. And with this change that underrates your own player's value, it's hard to even trade similiar rated players among similar sized clubs.
  7. Re: The Minor Improvments Thread The sorting function for loaned out players is messed up. I tried to sort by position and the players are scattered. One goalkeeper is in the middle, the other is at the bottom, Kieran Gibbs is at the top then Abate is at the bottom, so on so fort.
  8. Re: Player concerns not counting games in loan clubs? Wow is this a new development or something? I seem to remember before that getting games from loan clubs used to decrease the lack of games concern. Isn't that the exact purpose of loaning out, to get minutes for your players?
  9. Has anybody else noticed this? I have loaned out players like Abate and Damiao who are playing every single game in their loan clubs. But it's turn 35 now and there have been multiple player concern updates throughout the season but absolutely no one has decreased in the lack of games concern. It's all red arrows every single update.
  10. Re: How about making a realistic game engine ? @tebthereb: I think the most important thing that you said is we have no idea where to look when we lose games. In other manager games, you can see how the game went wrong for you. You can see which personnel under-performed and got battered by their counterparts. You can see why you only put up 3 shots on target. You can see why your midfield got overrun. You can see why your opponent scored 8 goals. And then you can make the necessary adjustments. But unfortunately in this game, the match ratings, match statistics, commentary, and player productivity have absolutely nothing to do with each other. What's worse is the tactical options that we make do not affect the game the way we think it should based on conventional wisdom. Case in point: 1. A very defensive-minded team(4-5-1 defensive, men behind ball) with no support for the lone striker suddenly puts up 35 shots on goal. 2. A packed 5-man midfield who plays shortpassing gets only 40% possession and the team who hoofs the ball up-field to the opposite box gets 60%. 3. There is no penalty for conflicting tactics. 4. Playing out of position and poor conditioning don't seem to affect unmanaged clubs. It doesn't matter if I put up 25 shots on target and the opponent only 1. Of course some would say you can still lose in real life and indeed you can, just like Chelsea winning in the Champions League final, but that should be on rare occasions. Generally real-life managers would look at that stat and say we had a fantastic game, but unfortunately it doesn't matter on SM. And now we go to the dreaded match ratings. I'm sure many of us had checked out match ratings either on websites or TV shows before. Sometimes we agree and sometimes we don't but it generally has some connection with the game ie: Gareth Bale torching Maicon in the Champions League, Neuer having a monster game against Manchester United. But SM's match ratings have nothing to do with the stats, the results, or even with the ratings of the opposing side. So what is left to analyze in our matches? How did we win? How did we lose? Where do we look? And how do we adjust?
  11. Re: leaks 5 goals...gets man of match Yeah this game sucks, I'm just running out my Gold account. Just download FIFA Manager or something.
  12. Hi is there any official word on which players are now too good to be loaned out? I was trying to loan out Ter Stegen(87) and my chairman "refused to let such a talented player out on loan".
