  1. Ok. Thanks a lot for your response. Its really gutting to see a game that a i loved such much growing up make such a downward spiral. The one change that really gets me is the loss of a ratings change schedule. I remember keep on checking the schedule when i was younger, and getting excited when it was coming round to the big leagues like BPL and LBBVA. One change that really got me and gets me is the change to joining a new setup, and the amount of new set-ups that where created. No longer can i easily find a setup that has just started and join it. Look sot me that the only real way of doing it is to pay for a club. I still may try and get back into it, as i say, it took up so much time when i was younger, and i have so many great memories of the game. I'm guessing their misson of "Creating the best online football manager game and let everyone play it for free" is no longer the case, and that may be detrimental to the game itself.
  2. Have the changes been for the better or worse?
  3. Hi Everyone, I started playing SM in 2006 when it was just released and played it for years. I stopped p[laying a few years ago when it got a bit repetitive and stagnant, and i wasn't a fan of some of the changes. I am looking to get back onto it again. I was just wondering if people could inform me of some of the major changes that have taken place for Soccer manager 'worlds' since i played last, about 1-2 years ago Thanks!
  4. Re: New Game World - NFL Style Yeah thanks. Thats the one big problem with this kind of idea, you really need managers that will stick and around and play to the rules. I think maybe i had too many rules for this setup that put people off, i may look to refine the rules and post another thread, so keep your eyes open!
  5. Re: It's Tough At The Bottom! Sounds cool , I'd like shewsbury plz but I haven't seen the squad or their finances yet, I'm on my phone atm.
  6. Re: New Game World - NFL Style I Could do, but that seems a bit generic and a bit limiting. I was thinking about some sort of empty club start-up, but wondering what i can do to make it different and interesting but also fun.
  7. Re: New Game World - NFL Style HI Guys. Unfortunately it doesn't seem like we r going to get enough interest to get this started Ill have to come up with another idea for my setup.
  8. Hi. I was just wondering if their is an 'unoffical' rating cap on players in the MLS. I know ages ago when the player ratings where more organised (no disrespect, couldn't think on a different term to use), that leagues had certain caps that players wouldn't go above while playing in that league. I only ask because i have been looking at a lot of the players in the league, and even the best performing teams from last year dont have many highly rated players (most players average about 80, with about 84 seeming the max). With the only players being rated higher are the superstars that have arrived from other teams, like Clint Dempsy, Robbie Keane etc. I understand more parameters can effect the ratings, such as international appearances, but im wondering if maybe its just the fact the MLS hasn't had a player rating update recently, or are the majority of players in the MLS going to cap at at 84 rating? Thanks for any help.
  9. Re: New Gameworld I have applied
  10. Re: New Game World - NFL Style Hi Guys Thanks for the response. Im thinking about taking out the foreign players rule, and allow teams to have players of any nationality on their team, as with the salary cap rule managers will already enough to think about creating a squad. Hopefully we can get a bit more interest so we can get this setup going.
  11. NFL Style Game World Hi. I am looking to create a new game world. It will be based off of american sports, taking on rules from the MLS and NFL. I am looking for people interested in a fresh challenge. Here is the idea of the game world. Rules: No buying players from External (apart from 2 special scenarios, see below) No cash only deals between teams, must include at least a player or draft pick) No selling players for cash [*]Only allowed 8 foreign players in your squad [*]Salery Cap [*]Playoff and Superbowl game at the end of the season [*]Draft at the end of the season. If this seems like something you would be interested please continue reading for a for in-depth explanation of the rules. External Transfers: Manager cannot buy players from external clubs like they could in other game worlds. There are two ways in which you can gain players from external clubs in this setup. Firstly, at the start of every season each manage is allowed to sign 2 players from external clubs (3 players for the first season). These transfers must be cash only deals, and the players must be 24 years old or older. The transfers can not include players leaving the club. The second reason is signing players through the end of season draft, which will be explained later on. No cash deals between human managers You cannot make cash only transfers between other managers in this setup. If you want a player you must exchange another player in return, or exchange a draft pick (explained later). Cash can only be sued to reach chairman's evaluations. No selling players for cash Team cannot sell players for cash only, ie.e to external teams. If you want/ need to get rid of a player he must be traded away or released. Only 8 foreign players Each manager will pick a club to manage before i create the game world, for example Barcelona That team can then have no more than 8 foreign players in their squad come the start of the season. Therefore, if i managed Barcelona i could not have more than 8 non-spanish players. Teams will be deducted points if they have eligible players. Salary Cap A salary cap will be established which every player must adhere to come the start of every season. Teams that exceed the cap will be deducted points. All player salaries in the squad will be included in the cap, however, there are three players that can be exempt. Each manage can choose an international player (foreign player), home-grown player and rookie player (23 years old or under) to be exempt from the salary cap. 0% of their wages will go towards the cap. These players can only be changed at the start of the season. Playoffs and Superbowl At the end of the season the top four teams will reach the play-offs. 1st plays 4th and 2nd plays 3rd. Winners of those games will reach the superbowl, and will play for the glory of winning that season. Draft At the end of every season a draft will occur. This is an opportunity for teams to sign rookies (23 years old or younger) from external teams. Managers take it in turn to pick a player. They then have the right to sign that player. A draft will consist of 4 rounds. The team that finished bottom of the league receives the 1st overall pick each round, with the superbowl winner receiving the last pick each round. Throughout the season manages can trade away their picks in the draft for players currently in teams squads. Each season a draft 'class' will be selected. This decides which players are eligible to be drafted. For example, season 1 will be all players currently at English external teams. So there you go. Those are the ideas for the game world. Please provide comments with feedback on the idea, and please let me know if you are interested in playing. If you have any questions regarding teh rulesd, or need somthing explaining more let me know. I am looking for trustworthy people who will follow the rules and are up for a bit of fun that is different from normal soccer manager!
  12. Re: Official Liverpool Thread Id change you typeline under your name :(
  13. Re: FIFA 12 Official Thread I don't think he is in the squad, but you can get TOTY Mavuba for about 45k and i think he is really good.
  14. Re: FIFA 12 Official Thread I scrapped my other team. Struggled against teams with pacey players, decided instead to make a douche team. Here it is: What do people think? How do people think i can improve the team as i get more coin?
  15. Re: Official Liverpool Thread Yes, thats why i said "I guess you'll get that from most players now a days" :rolleyes:
  16. Re: FIFA 12 Official Thread Ok, so here is my new team. I have played a couple of games with it. I am liking Michu. He is not that speedy, but you can score some good long shots with him. I did have torres but i didn't like playing with him. He didn't seem that quick and he just kept being pushed off the ball and falling over. I have just bought Roux up front, unfortunately in the wrong formation, but he was only like 12k. I haven't tried him yet, but he has 87 sprint speed and really good finishing and shot power. Also, i ended up getting Ruffier in goal. In some games he has been really godd, stopping close range shots. One other player im not too sure about is kaka, he has a decent finesse shot, but the problem with the team is that it lacks pace, especially in wide areas. Not too sure whether i should lose kaka for a speedier winger. My next purchase is going to be a CB though. David Luiz is just there for now while i try and generate funds for an inform Ligue 1 player.
  17. Re: FIFA 12 Official Thread Street is decent. The negatives i had is that you can't play with mates very easily. Like you can't do the two v two game online, after it was advertised so much as a unique game style (stupid EA). The other stupid thing about it is that you can only have 1 'carrier' mode team. That basically stopped me playing, cause i made a custom team with my mates, but as you move on you can get real life players. I wanted to have twop, my custom team, then another one where i made an 'ultimate team' of real players. ut you can't. I hate EA somtimes...
  18. Re: Official Liverpool Thread Well said :D
  19. Re: Official Liverpool Thread I think it really depends on if if Sigurdson comes to Liverpool. If he does i would imagine it means Gerrard would sit further back. Althoguh, what do people think about playing Suarez in the 'Gerrard' role, just behind Carrol.
  20. Re: Official Liverpool Thread That's a good way to look at it. Saying that makes me wonder how many 'world class' players are actually in the prem!
  21. Re: Official Liverpool Thread Actually I'm pretty sure Suarez would get into man U's team. Who else is there, Rooney... and that's it. And they are totally different players. You need to learn what potential is. Both Suarez and Carrol were brought in not to make an incredible impact stright away, although it was hoped for, but more importantly to develop and 'become' world class players, that what i'm saying. I don't know if Carrol will become world class, but i believe he can be, if he is played and put to good use. As for Suarez, i am in no way going to try and convince a Man U fan of his ability, I am not a GOD
