    mistermalcolm got a reaction from S04 in Can't report cheats   
    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.

    mistermalcolm got a reaction from S04 in Over bidding   
    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.

    I played the Pavillions world and gave some very constructive advice much of which has been ignored.
    Unfortunately you have managed to alieniate much of your current user base .
    At least 5 of my clubs have lost in the region of 200M in value and will be effectively bankrupted by the end of the year. In one day 5 years work with one club and much more with others has been undone.
    You have also , as I informed at the time , created a short cut to short term success as teams have hoarded younger players to sell now.
     
    These clubs will under no circumstance sell thier older players or stars as they can in some cases sit on 400M plus in gained revenue.
     
    The interface is so slow that it has taken me 30 minutes to scan through 6 clubs rather than the time it has taken me to look at all your clubs.
     
    I very much fear that you have killed your own game stone dead. I hope I am wrong but I suspect not. If you look at the exodus from many game worlds you really must be worried. Under no circumstance will I renew my gold membership as things stand.  I have noticed that the old interface works perfectly fine with the new changes , so why not allow use to skin the game that way and use it as we wish?

    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.

    Kev good step forward giving the option on the interface and thank you for listening.
    Now you have to realise that this option needs to be PERMANENT.
    You will have the EXACT same reactions in 11 Jan if you make the new UI permanent for all.
    For me from yesterday until the 7th December it's like the game is down, i don't even bother. From 7th i will have at least 1 more playable month. After that it's your choice to make it a permanent choice for all which UI to keep, or face the leaking of users. At least i won't bother with this UI for sure

    I've been trying to get on with this now for 2 days but to no avail.
    I'd read a number of comments over the last few days but didn't want to check my 2 pence in before giving it a chance.
    I started playing this game almost 5 years ago (it will be 5 years in January) on a PC and now just play it via my iPhone on the desktop setting as it's intuitive and nice to use. This new one is ghastly, if this had been in place when I first played this, I wouldn't have lasted a day, let alone almost 5 years.
    I also hope that come January they retain the original desktop site as otherwise I won't be sticking around, it'll almost be like I've wasted hundreds of hours of my life on this.
    The simple answer is to vote with your wallets, it's the only thing that matters in a consumer driven service.

    Ok. 1 day on 9 clubs lighter....
    Had to spend most of today listing young players to sell before they get old or develop concerns and any older players who already have concerns.
     
    To offer some advice..
    1) We need to see if a player is transfer banned in transfer searches, as it now takes too long to check.
    2) When you search for a player, click on one player and then press next all the search criterea are reset, so you have to go back type them in again, then scroll through 3 or 4 pages to get back to the players you were looking at.
     
    Can't possibly see how the valuations of the players are vaguely realistic when I have seen people selling players who have played half a dozen games for minor sides ( probably realistic value zero ) sold for 1.6M and then buying 3 x international quality players realistic value around 4 - 6 million , sold for 400k each.    How can a whole bunch of 64 rated trainee at a non league side be worth more than a quality player in division 2 or 3 just because they aren't in their first flush of youth.. It's not sensible in any fashion..

    For me the days of playing with loads of clubs is over as the game is just too slow, most of the good advice given by test world managers has been ignored, for example a drag down menu to access important screens in one hit., In addition I can't see how one will succeed with smaller clubs. In my case with some clubs 6 +  years of work has been undone over night and we will soon see a large number of clubs, in my opinion up to 25% bankrupted as they have so little value in ageing squads and such high wage bills. What is the point in that ?

    mistermalcolm got a reaction from DLO in Squad Sizes   
    Re: Squad Sizes
    Squad size has absolutely nothing to do with the success of a gameworld or otherwise. Those who want a squad cap do themselves no justice by linking the issues. As has been said EC7046 succeeds with sides with relatively small sides in general. EC1 succeeds with absolutely huge squads in Division 1 with smaller squads in lower divisions.
    In EC1 I would never had got to where I am without a big squad , as I could never have generated the income to succeed.
    I do scout players , on my own and have some idea of their prospects. I don't hog players for the sake of it to stop others buying.
    A restrospective squad cap in unworkable. It will kill most gameworlds dead. The smaller sides will not be able to compete, it will drive down transfer prices as presumably after a set time players will leave on concerns or as a free agent so no point scouting , just wait for teams to fall apart.
    A squad cap under 100 will simply create 20 /40/80 indentikit teams soon after the start of any league as you are able to buy any player you like from externals so long as the price is right.
    Then as there will be few / no transfers , most of the small clubs will effectively be bankrupted as they will have high rated players , no chance of selling them or risking a few risers.
    I would only support any squad cap if it were linked to an introduction of sponsorship , building grounds, a better AI in the external teams so that they won't simply sell you all their best players and manager sackings for incompetent or unlucky managers in higher divisions. If you want realistic ,then fine, go all the way.
    The major reasons for gameworlds failing are.
    1) Over supply of gameworlds.
    2) Heinous cheating and little being done about it.
    3) Ratings not being regularly reviewed as they use to be.
    4) Bugs not being properly address for example a side being robbed of 3.5M in prize money , 5 players leaving a side as free agents and no compo being paid.
    5) Questionable A.I. of unmanaged & external teams
    6) Part of (1) no sensible way of merging almost empty gameworlds.

    And as I seem to have been dragged into the cup vs league debate despite never commenting on it.
    I never target the cup unless I reach the final, it has little or no effect on my team other than picking up a few injuries. Barnet's recent form has been stunningly good , he deserves to lead the league.
    My aim is to get promoted by right and avoid the playoff's, which will be achieved, even though I have to rinse my team through again in a couple of weeks, which Barnet are now able to do themselves from a position of strength.
    I can't see any other clubs than the top 3 going up , so it's a fight for the playoffs for the rest.
