  1. Has to be the red card thing, but it is very close between that and the max bidding value changing in the middle of bidding wars. Both should hopefully be able to be fixed this year if the focus group mention them. The UI is still a huge issue for many, but I don't find that as big an issue as stuff in the code of the game. Think the biggest problem everyone had with the UI was they put it upon us without really taking feedback on board.
  2. That would be fantastic if true though I remain sceptical that anything will end up happening. Worlds has been neglected for the last four years (most recent update on change log is from November 2016) and has been completely ignored while the development team have moved on to the single player version, apps and then crypto currency. If the multiplayer version hadn't kicked off like it had, the opportunities for the expansions into other realms wouldn't be there. There are still bugs that have either been in the game for years, or been there from the start like teams with players getting sent off being way more likely to win/get a result. Don't know if anyone here has experienced it but it has happened 90% of the time in games for everyone in my league for years compared to the team with 11 men getting a result. Edit: Also hope the group mention the max value for players changing in bidding wars an hour or so before bids are accepted. That ends up punishing those who actively scout players and rewards those who bid last minute which is unfair. So many times, people in my game world bid on a player newly added to the database, only for their value to change at 5am or some stupid time and the early bidders being unable to come on in time to change their bids whereas those who bid later take advantage. Would like to see the value changing eradicated completely. Quality of life change could be option for squad caps depending on league and squad capacity. My league has done something like that but we have to enforce it ourselves and it works well for us to avoid player hoarding. Also for an automatic comment thread to be created after match days (saying stuff like "Turn 06 discussion") so people can chat about the results in there instead of making individual comments which could spoil the results for some people before they watch the games.
  3. Seems they've already started La Liga. Would be absurd if Gladbach didn't get any more rises, however not surprising with the way the review has gone. For Denis Zakaria in particular to miss out is ridiculous. 2000+ minutes in all competitions, the only game he missed was due to a yellow suspension, starter for country where they won four of their six European qualifiers and at a club in the top two in their league, and they're trying to say that isn't worth of a +1 from 88 to 89? Seems ridiculous that they've only touched one Gladbach player but them starting La Liga doesn't make me confident that they'll finish Gladbach off.
  4. I'd say no. Southampton's highest rated players are rated 89, they're 14th in the league and Ward-Prowse's stats aren't spectacular. It is rare for players not at a "top club" in a league to go from 88-90 in one go.
  5. Brandt rise was a pleasant surprise. He's been doing great for Dortmund the last couple of months or so but thought he might be overlooked. Wasn't expecting a +2 for Sancho but with the rises other players have got it is a bit of a shame he didn't get one. If he ends the season on 20+ goals and 20+ assists in all competitions (currently on 12 goals, 13 assists), he'll likely get 92 then.
  6. There were hardly any players reviewed today. Bayern will be finished either tomorrow or the day after.
  7. Agreed. Based on the other reviews he should get a +2 but won't.
  8. Here's my effort on two of your questions. I'm not comfortable enough with my knowledge of the other players to give a verdict: Upamecano is a certainty to rise. Was linked with Arsenal in the summer and a regular in a team top of the league. Just sucks that Konate got injured when he did, as otherwise he would have been a sure rise as well. I would keep. Badiashille is promising and has played regularly for Monaco until he got benched a few games back. Personally I'd keep, taking his age into account but the concern is more on Monaco's end. They're not the same side they were when they had Mbappe. Now they're spending more and, in my opinion, not giving the young purchases enough game time. Nice squad by the way. Jealous of that defence in particular.
  9. It isn't guaranteed but there has been a change of some sort - could be updating one of his details like his position.
  10. Bundesliga then La Liga. I think we've got some SoccerWiki admins on here. If any are reading, the players that get a rating change (along with other edits) are listed on the Recent Changes, right? So if someone isn't on there, then they're not going to get an increase. If that is the case, then it is ludicrous that it appears Denis Zakaria isn't going to rise.
  11. Doesn't look like it any time soon. Started season first choice, picked up an injury and now he's returned he's on the bench and has been an unused sub a few times. That Mkhitaryan is ahead of him in the pecking order is a sign of how far he's fallen.
  12. Really is a poor review. And why did Gagliardini get a -1? He's played about 800 minutes this season with a couple of injuries for a team second in the league. Sensi who has less minutes this season than Gagliardini got a +2 to 90, while Gagliardini drops to 89. If that is enough to bring down a player from 90 to 89, then a lot of players should be in line for decreases from other leagues. Also, Strakosha deserved a rise as a starter for a club third in the league.
  13. @whythedidntbernatrise should be happy this morning.
  14. Axel Disasi also got the +4 to 82, which ultimately I think is a little disappointing. Reims have the joint fewest goals conceded this season along with PSG (on 9, next closest is 15). They're 9th but have played one game fewer than four clubs that are within three points above them, and in terms of minutes played he has played every minute for Reims, and out of all outfield players in Ligue 1, there are only 12 who have played the same or more minutes. I don't have access to Wyscout but this article says he's the top performing Ligue 1 defender on there as well (will take that with a pinch of salt). Guessing at the end of the season he'll get a +1 at most.
  15. Seems they've skipped Disasi completely. No change in rating. Despite over 1,000 minutes. Personally I'd say Elvedi should hit 90. Was a year ago he hit 89 and he's just gone from strength to strength since Rose came in.
  16. @TMCosta I can't see Goretzka getting a +1. He's missed a fair bit of the season so far due to injury.
  17. Bafode Diakite got a +4 from 78 to 82 at bottom club Toulouse when playing 558 minutes in the league. I know he's a teenager and SM like to throw ratings at young players, but do we think the older Axel Disasi (21) - who has played every minute in the league so far (1350) and at a club 11th in the league, will get at least an equal increase? Just been arguing with someone who thinks Disasi is unlikely to even get a +4 to 82.
  18. Alzate is now in full squad (still no rise): https://www.brightonandhovealbion.com/news/1486374/alzate-named-in-senior-colombia-squad
  19. Maybe an end of season thing if Inter continue to do well. This review is way too soon though.
  20. Random rises for a bunch of players in the Premier League. Aaron Connolly gets a +5 from 73 to 78 for Brighton, but Steven Alzate (72 rated) who plays for same club and has even more minutes doesn't get anything yet and, like Connolly he's got a national team provisional squad call-up.
  21. Wasn't it reviewed in April or was that just a partial review? Notes I have say Belgium review was done in April so there's still another eight months to go until next one.
  22. From 76 to 88 in one season. Konate went from 83 to 88 and had played 1400 more minutes for a team that qualified for the Champions League, whereas Roma only just qualified for the Europa, and in the months since his previous rise, Zaniolo had one goal. Rise to 86 would have been fairer but guess the hype the attacking players get results in quicker rises for them these days.
  23. I think the ratings are about right, Mane and Salah are better players, but he could still rise tomorrow I suppose. Good to see Eriksen got a +1, van Dijk's +2 wasn't a surprise to me, and Zouma was reviewed with Chelsea after all.
  24. Croatia (Jun) Norway (Jul) Sweden (Jul) Denmark (Jul) Scotland (Jul) Were the five leagues last year, but there's still Japan, Greece and South Korea who should have been reviewed before the big five but weren't, so they're way overdue.
