  1. I am less pessimistic, as I know that they can take action against cheats , it is just that they do not by in large have the resources to do so. That is why player moderators will work. I suggest trialling them in Ec106, 7777 and 5 with me as the moderator.. The world would be a better place ...

  2. In the long term they are shooting themselves in the foot. Everytime they block a post the names of all the objecting clubs and the post goto the moderators, since you haven't been banned from the newsfeed they must think it is a malicious report.

    Again as I have stated before we need player moderators to kick out these clowns. We should also not do any deals with them but NOT persecute of be critical of those that do as there are so many clubs 10 + that it is really hard to tell, we need friends in the game world not to push other managers into their camp.

    Also we should not spam the newsfeed as it is ruining the experience of other game players, one message on the cheat clubs, bump it up until it gets censored then write a new one.

  3. Recently SM decided to introduce a limit of 5 multiple club reports per season, effectively establishing a cheats charter as in many popular leagues there are some managers with 10 + clubs.

    So they can

    Censor the newsfeed by reporting posts, report genuine honest deals, report other managers to stop them dealing with each other and cheat as per usual.

    The other managers report them, mostly getting the blah blah not enough evidence response. Or in case of transfers the thank you for reporting this transfer, which means nothing is going to happen.

    SM need to trial player moderators, to properly vetted experienced managers. If you look at the more successful custom leagues, say top 100 , cheating isn't present and the game much improved. Regular and Gold premium gameworlds are getting pointless due to the huge number of cheats that SM can't or won't deal with.

    A player moderator would be able to remove or temporarily suspend the cheat accounts, reverse a limited number of transfers and possibly vet new applicants or even suggest a temporary rise to a GW rep level to keep out the cheats. 

    Possibly there should be 2 or 3 moderators with a majority or even 100% agreement to remove a particular player.

    I really can't see any other way to move the game on anymore. It works well in other games so why not here.

  4. Hi in EC2 there are 2 well known groups of cheats.

    I can't report either set via the multiple accounts , because they reported themselves before they did anything wrong and can't be reported again. When I report their transfers nothing is done.


    One particular group who control 4 clubs openly transfer 3 rubbish players from the mother club for double value and loan out players who should never play for the clone clubs to pay wages and reduce concerns.


    + They use the clone clubs to monopolise transfers by over bidding for free agents and then pulling bids in favour of teh mother club.


    Is it allowed for 1 person to control 4 clubs in the game world.



  5. Hi..


    I'm sure I am not alone in noticing that the new and old interfaces allow certain clubs to overbid for players by a set amount that is know to a few.   I have seen players who's max value to all clubs , which should be the same , go for 300k 600k or even 1million more than is allowed.


    I have raised this as a bug and got no reply. I have asked for the deals , which are being made as part of an obvious bug exploit to be reversed but no luck..


    I'm sure this can easily be fixed.



  6. The ratings changes are a joke,   Hanover , fine deserve a drop overall. Marcelo didn't , he is class, plays all the minutes but goes down 1. 3 Other players with less time, who have played rubbish all season all 88 don't drop at all. What is this all about,,,

  7. Well now 36hrs in.


    I believe it is a brave decision to admit when you are wrong and SM have effectively done this by returning to the old interface if users want it.

    Please make this permanent , I can live with it now.


    Now a few more minus points.

    Player valuations, absolutely ridiculous. Today in 5 minutes I have turned a 4th division side and a 3rd division side into guaranteed title winners in fully populated worlds. Simple sell off the over valued youngsters and buy old codgers.. O.K. it may well bankrupt the sides but I need to test if that will really happen or not, no point pontificating.


    In the new interface the white bar at the top can drop down 2 or 3 lines block off the top 5 tabs, making it even worse. Happens if the club has a medium or long name.


    O.K. may the force be with you all.

  8. What makes this sad is that people warned that this would happen. 

    Another well known soccer game which has been running since 1997, who had 1 million active users !  decided to sell out to another company who promptly decided to fleece the active users for more cash and break a founding principal of that game. They ended up handing the game back to the original developers but now they have lost 700 000 users and lose 0.1% of their customer base per week , they use to make a good income from that game and now make 70% less. 


    However to be constructive. I understand that it was deliberately made harder to access popular game world to keep spammers and game wreckers away. What we didn't expect was it to be made completely impossible.

    On the club search screen in add a new club, as far as I can tell you can't say just search for EC1 or 106 etc. You are only pointed towards dead leagues with 5 or 6 players . no one will stay in those leagues, which surely is worse , as the popular leagues will die and the new players won't stay.


    You also can't click on your own history or find past clubs that way , which once the quitathon has calmed down , some people including myself may go back to one or 2 of our former favourite leagues.


    It would be great if , on the pull down list for the clubs it also had the number of new messages, that way I know if I need to click or not and can you put it back the right way round with my oldest and most valued club at the top.


    I also agree with all the other posters who believe that we should be able to use the old interface permanently, as to be frank it is far better.
