  1. Hi guys,

    I just created a game world where teams have blank squads...

    it says this though when I try to sign anyone:

    You cannot propose transfers until the Game World opens shortly. Usually 48 hours after the Game World was created.

    the game world is already "open" though? I've never had this before, usually you can buy players as soon as the game is running. Also, there's no friendlies scheduled before the first game on 17th Nov. These are usually scheduled for every day before the first match. I can't even schedule any friendlies myself as the dates are all shaded out in grey.

    So..just wondering why this is so and if it's "normal" for a world of this type. I am also curious as to how squads of the remaining unmanaged teams will fill up...will they just be given their real life players? random players? or do they stay empty with none? since the game has a rule where you can only sign from the club's nationality..would that rule remain in force if/when there squads are filled up?


  2. I see this option in the custom game world admin panel. Now, this isn't one of those silly rules that means you wont be able to sell a player even if an AI/external club makes an offer above any limit you set in game? I take it this just refers to the human teams? I seem to remember having an age limit selected once and externals could still buy players over that age limit.

    cheers!


  3. Re: Should This Really Be Happening On SM?

    ;2454874']what are the team instructions? if Fulham played defensive & long ball' date=' then there 3 forward players would have a field day against 3 defenders...[/quote']

    Fulham were unmanaged too.

    interesting result...but still...3 attackers vs 3 defenders...fulham would most definitely be outnumbering on the counter attack in that formation. It can happen. I watched Sporting Gijon beat Barcelona last season with a similar tactic to that...Sporting were relegated at the end of the season though. I'm surprised more teams have not copied the formation they played against barca in that game because their pressing in midfield was immense. they played 2 central defenders, 2 wing backs, 2 holding mids, 3 attacking mids (with two drifting wide to support the wing backs) and a lone CF. Barcelona could not handle it. I mean...if a team isn't going to play a proper striker then why play a back 4? That's exactly what the coach said after the game!


  4. Hi guys,

    I've got a game world going with some friends from another online game. We started it a week saturday back and the first league match was last night. There's still not been a single bid for anyone's players off the transfer list, and it seems a bit strange. In most other games I've played, there has been bids at least after the first match has been played. The only thing we've had so far is loan bids, which came in earlier today about the same time that clubs used to make actual transfer bids. Unless the times have changed when bids come in? It used to be around 11am GT...Just wondered if this is a bug in the game world or if maybe bids are made much later than they used to be. Good to see that clubs make loan offers now, guess its a consolation for removing the database schedule!

    thanks :P


  5. Re: Guess at next leagues to be reviewed, & discuss SM's review policy........

    i know i am clutching at straws because it is a now a one team league' date=' but any predictions when Celtic will be done, i have taken over one in a GC and it would be useful to know.[/quote']

    you've got to be joking, right? hehe

    Scotland was last reviewed before even Russia and Ukraine so I really can't see it getting one anytime soon, mainly because of scotland's spirallingly awful ranking, but partly also because these days things are hardly happening at all fast! Cyprus could even do with a review before Scotland given their much improved ranking, or even Ireland since the Shamrock Rovers' squad is still waiting to be rewarded for being in the group stage of the EL in, erm, 2011.

    My prediction is that rangers will be back in the SPL before Scotland gets fully reviewed again. You heard it here first! Don't laugh, i'm being serious!! ;)

    Maybe the sweaty socks won't even be in the top 30 nations by the time SM even pass a thought their way. At the moment the review process reminds me of the kid at school that used to nibble round his twix and leave the biscuit. So, maybe half your Celtic team will get done, or maybe none of it, between now and Rangers promoting back. happy? good :P


  6. Re: 60-74 risers (divided into leagues)

    I take it these are rating reviews

    yes they are.

    edit: well, actually i'm doing them one at a time but at the same time of proposing the rating review i'm also editing the player data (height/weight) of the players and also adding some strengths/weakness. The more data I give then *I think* or at least hope that SW will trust the info i've given (which is of course all above board). It seemed silly to just propose the rating review without anything else to go with it, because those don't get voted on...or so it seems. I dunno, I just thought it'd get binned if I simply just proposed the rating review cos they'll think its just lazy man's work.

    ok, the more of you that give me a thumbs up vote for Steve Cook on SW the better and while you are at it, put a bid in for him for 10k lol. This will be a bit of a test (for me at least) and if it works then I might go thru more 60-74 type players for everyone elses benefit.

    edit: Just done danny holmes aswell using another account, might aswell. only a 67 rated player but over 3000 minutes for tranmere this season!! I've no idea if anything will come of this, probably nothing but as they're only 10k it's worth a try, not costing owt. So, please help me get both Cook and Holmes reviewed with some SW thumbs up :P


  7. Re: 60-74 risers (divided into leagues)

    Spyropoulis +5 today.

    yep, I suggested it on soccer wiki :DDDDDd

    I just sent soccerwiki reviews in on the whole AFC Bournemouth team and i reckon given their high league standing they could happpen. So, get your hands on wes fogden, joe partington, steve cook and eunan o'kane cos you never know they might go up over the next few days. well, you can always hope :D

    Wes Fogden 67~77

    Eunan O'Kane 74~79

    Joe Partington 70~77

    Steve Cook 70~78

    Matt Tubbs 73~78


  8. Re: The Best Talent of 10k

    Steve Cook at bournemouth should rise from 70 to at least 78, he plays every week for a team third in the league their. if they promote to the championship then it won't be long before he gets a rise. Wes Fogden also, only a 67 rating, has over 1000 minutes i think so he could easily get a +10 rise. Another their is Eunan O'Kane whose 74 rating at least makes him cheap enough to warrant a purchase, he should rise to a 79 or so. those three are the best risers from bournemouth, joe partington should get up to about a 77 from his lowly 70 rating.


  9. Re: The Best Talent of 10k

    fair enough.

    i wish they would post up when the leagues are being reviewed, its most frustrating playing this guessing game now. I've still got russian and ukrainian risers that i've been waiting on being reviewed since the twelfth of never! and ukraine is supposedly then 7th best league in europe, yet barely gets a yearly review...even league one and two in england has been reviewed more recently than BOTH of these countries. its not right. any of it. gah!!!!!!!


  10. Re: Riferimento: The Best Talent of 10k

    10k rise:

    Kazuki Kushibiki 73 --> 77/78 (Consadole Sapporo) 77

    HECTOR' date=' Michael 70 --> 76 (Reading) [b']73[/b]

    WESTWOOD, Ashley 72 --> 83 (Aston Villa) 83

    Cammy Smith 73 --> 77 (Aberdeen) 77

    PAVLOV, Tomislav 70 --> 75 (Minyor) 77

    GAZZANIGA, Paulo 73 --> 80/82 (Southempton) 80

    Sam Hoskins 70 --> 75 (Southempton) 72

    Dan Burn 70 --> 75 (Fulham, loan Yeovil Town) 77

    OBENG, Curtis 70 --> 75 (Swansea) 73

    what use is this to anyone? its no good posting risers after they happened.


  11. Re: Selling to external clubs.

    tell me about it.

    the worst thing is actually when you have a player whose real life club is unmanaged in your game world and the club never makes enough money to be in a position to make an offer for them. cos unmanaged clubs wont bid for players if it means they go overdrawn, the same as the game wont let us either. this happened to me and it took me a while to work out why i wasnt getting any offers, cos it seemed other clubs wont make bids for a player if the real life one is unmanaged. the only option in that case for me was to create a duplicate account to take over the club and sell some of there players, then resign and then they make an offer. not the right thing to do but it was the only way i was gonna shift the player.


  12. I'm thinking of creating this....similar style to the European Super League of course, but with teams from South/Central/North America.

    If there is interest in such a competition then I shall create it. all the best teams will be present of course, from Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, Uruguay the MLS etc etc....
