    DharmaBuns got a reaction from antondrobnjak in Italiani   
    Grazie lunastorta, avevo dimenticato di questa discussione, hai fatto benissimo a postare qua!
    Appunto, dovrebbe essere provvisoria la cosa e  quindi è un forum molto elementare, ma molti avevano richiesto uno spazio come il vecchio forum e come soluzione temporanea spero  possa andare. (e fu così che il forum rimase in funzione dieci anni... )
    Se possibile, scrivetelo in bacheca nei vari mondi italiani, fate un pò di passaparola insomma!

    DharmaBuns got a reaction from lunastorta in The Soccerwiki "bug"   
    So, everybody noticed what happened : young players turned in retired ones. 

    By simply checking on Soccerwiki it was obvious what was happening: an user ( now banned ) proposed to change old players into young ones and somehow the mutation was approved. Why did he propose that? Elementary, my dear Watson.

    Since they were interesting young players, by introducing them that way he would have skipped the "new player in database" way, that usually leads to expensive auctions. You don't need to be a genius to understand that.

    When the "scam" was discovered, the young players were set on "retiring" on Soccerwiki and the real ones were introduced in the standard way (perphaps you didn't noticed that, but for example we have had 2 Fosu-Mensah in the database, for a while).

    By simply checking that user profile, you could predict exactly which players would have been affected by this story. You didn't need to "discover" it , actually, it was in plain sight. And it took me 5 minutes . 


    Now, Soccerwiki has a quite strict way to process modifications. I have an account on it but i cannot propose modifications because i'm not at..i dunno...4th level? something like that? And if you manage to propose a modification and it's not approved, you get banned or get a malus or something like that.

    Ok, that's fine. Soccerwiki is strict and this keeps the quality high. I don't like Soccerwiki but at least that was a guarantee that the voting system was serious. 

    Given the almost paranoic/elitaristic way that Soccerwiki has to rule who can propose  and what he can propose, i'd like to know how on earth such an abvious scam about young players has been possible. That user proposed the modifications, but the modifications were:
     
    - voted
    - approved
    - implemented

    And after some time in which innocent managers bought the fake players (just for the record, i am not one of them, this story had no effect on my team because..well...i'm not that stupid. I checked them before spending money on them, but not all the managers were so smart)...

    - corrected
     
    How has it been possible? 

    And this is not a mundane problem. Since all the game is based on the rating, and the rating is based on Soccerwiki, all the game is based on Soccerwiki.  But nobody knows who takes decisions on Soccerwiki, who's behind it. Everything is so misterious with it  and this may be ok only until it works. So, some explaination is needed, at this point...

    Riferimento: Re: How about making a realistic game engine ?
    Same here. I am sad and angry when i lose in a competitive world but, well, it's a game and losing is part of it, fine! When i win and i play a worst match i say that, i'm honest. But when i lose AND i play a better match (or a similar level match) and i lose 4-1, 4-2, 3-0, it gets frustrating, to use a polite word... One time, fine. Two times, ok. Three times...meh...but every time is the symptom that there's something wrong with the engine (and i base on other teams stats too, not just on my own matches).

    I think they will continue on reviewing whole leagues' date=' but these random players are really a great problem for many many reasons but there's a new one: now some team takes an advantage immediately, all the other will have to wait the rest of the league to be done. This always happened and good managers were able to build a nice team if they were good scouts, but imagine what's happening now in a world based only on Eredivisie, if it exists (i suppose they exist), or just on Russian or Portuguese or whatever championships. Once, apart from foreign players, all team got risers in the same phase of the season. Now, some team will have an istant boost, some other will have to wait that SM does the rest of the league, with obvious consequences on championship balance.
    I think SM destroyed those kind of worlds, this way.
    I guess so. Actually, i really don't like to vote for my players and i don't want to. But if SW will continue on mess up teams value, i think i'll have to defend my team interests in some way...

    I guess i have to stop trusting SM schedule and start voting for my own players on SW then, to make them reviewed at random right now... To me, it's cheating and I can't see how this improved the game, but it seems that it's how it works now...

    Riferimento: How about making a realistic game engine ?
    To me, the problem is not the great team losing to a smaller one, if the small one plays the match of the life and the manager is good at tactics. This happens often (only in past two weeks we had Southampton-M. City 3-1, Granada-Real 1-0, Siena-Inter 3-1, etc etc) and it's the better part of football.
    Problems are three, to me:
    1) tactic seems to have nothing to do with the result, which looks every day more based on randomness. But that would fine too, in some way. Chance is a part of football. But i've got this feeling that i'd get the same random result with every tactic.
    2) You always seem to lose playing a better match.
    It happens, but not 99,99% of the time! I'm getting really tired of losing matches in which i shoot on goal more than my opponent. I have to lose? fine! but i want to play an awful match then! And i've got Mihaylov as goalkeeper, he seems a good player...apart for SM, who seems to hate him... O.o
    3) Another mistery is the player rating at the end of the match.
    Once i had De Jong scoring an hat trick and 2 assists. Final rating : 4, because of a yellow card i think. So, if the ratings are nothing but an estetic commentary, fine. If the result is based on ratings...
    SM is a nice game and i do remember i play if for free and i'm thankful for that, but a better engine would improve greatly the game and that would turn in more users and maybe more gold users, so in SM's staff point of view it could be a wise investment...

    World Talent League Shield Finale



    Honved (Hungary) - Hearts of Oak (Ghana) 1-2

    With two goals of Wurtz the Ghanese team brings the Shield to Ghana! The Hungarian team plays a better match but the Ghanese hit with their counter-attacks!
    The coach of the team:
    "We are very happy! this is a great season for us and this trophy shows it! The Honved played very well but this cup is for all Ghana!"

    The President of the team:
    "This is a great day for Ghanese football!"

    In Accra's streets the celebrations are incredible!




    But no time for the players to celebrate: the championship goes on and the ghanese have to defend their 3rd place!

    Some team have done offers yet... (have a look at Verratti' date=' Caballero, Tassi, just to name some...)
    We have to wait an official start i think, don't we?
    EDIT: i counted at least 80 players with a bid, then i got tired, they should be around 200-300..
    I wrote on the game journal that we should wait until 1 p.m. of today at least (not 1 a.m. ) , but anyway, considering transfers are still closed and we have 200 offers yet...
