  1. Re: cannot change team all fixed now...cool and the gang
  2. Re: cannot change team Thanks for the reply sir...it would be a shame if we were not able to set up our teams for the first match of the season...would all managers be affected or just some? I have submitted a bug report too...
  3. Hello Chaps I have 2 gold game-worlds where i cannot set up my team for the league match tonight...it is the start of the new season and the tactics page is still stuck on the friendly matches that should have been played yesterday (Friday)... any one have any idea to solve this problem? thanks guys
  4. Re: Advertisements instead of view match? Hello Chaps Apologies for the re-post, I originally posted it in the wrong thread. I am a gold member and also purchase extra club slots, I currently manage 17 teams. Over the past few months the adverts have become more and more intrusive...particularly the ones where just sliding the cursor over it kicked it to life...I'd attempt to quickly delete it, but mostly only managed to lose the video whilst the audio soundtrack carried on regardless in the background...I don't know about anybody else but this, to me, was particularly frustrating...I'd have to go back to the home page to start again and then to be more careful with site navigation, often losing my train of thought in the process...so i downloaded Adblock for the first ever time, I'd never felt the need for this on any site previously...so, my first point is that your game is the best ever advertisement for Adblock... Everything was then fine and I got back to playing and enjoying a great and very addictive game. Then things took a turn for the sinister and every time I clicked on 'view match' I got welcomed with a blank black screen which lasts for about 5 seconds before normal service is resumed...now if this new feature only impinged on my own teams matches it wouldn't be anywhere near as stupefying and frustrating...but, before i set up my team for a match, i check the opposing teams' schedule for their previous formations and I like to look at the previous 5 matches that they have played and, you've guessed it, I get the blank black screen every single time, it makes setting up my team much more laborious and,in these days of instant gratification, we want, and usually get, information quickly and at our fingertips...as a consequence I have found that i'm spending less and less time on this exercise, so, of course, some of the depth of the game is being lost to me...now I ask you what game developer wants players spending less time playing its game and not using features that add detail and complexity to the game, surely they would want people getting even further into the machinations of a game, to pull them in more to what is a very addictive game, surely the deeper they get into it the more they will spend? (I did) or, in the very least, they will spend more time playing, staying on the site and viewing the less intrusive adverts more frequently? The point being, is that now every time I click on my opponents 'view match' and get the advert screen i feel a visceral tinge of sadness, each one, like a little stabbing dagger...in psychological terms this is profound, these little flickers of anxiety plant seeds and grow in the mind, now how many of these instances do you think it takes before consciously or unconsciously interest in the game wanes? nobody plays this game forever, which suggests it has a shelf-life, so, in my opinion, this latest advert addition can only hasten this happening and to ultimately decrease the shelf-life of the game. Finally, I feel that with adverts on websites it is a fine balancing act and punters will put up with so much, as long as it appears fair and reasonable, but this latest intrusion has tipped the scales significantly, its a shame and its very sad.

  6. Re: players match condition Hey, many thanks Arampage...a cut-off of 80 does seem to fit into my anecdotal findings, so i will try this more frequently...thank-you very much sir. I'm suprised SM dont issue their own game instruction guide...if you buy a football manager game for a game console, they come with instructions...they don't outline weightings, but the concepts are clearly explained. Otherwise we are left to the mercy of collated anecdotal evidence, which, although useful, can be misleading and contradictory...and as the developers tweak the engine, can also become out of date...
  7. Re: players match condition Yep, i have seen similar...perhaps the NMF icon is the cut-off point? or perhaps it is, indeed, more random than we'd like to think...SM should perhaps issue an instruction manual? Thanks for replying sir...
  8. Re: players match condition Thanks for the reply sir...with regards to the game engine, its totally understandable that SM don't go into the machinations and weighting...but i feel that the tactics and what they mean should be outlined in a help strategy guide..you know things like passing style, tempo etc and what they mean...I know there are stickied posts, but they are written by other punters and not the game developers, so how do we know how much credence to give them...and most are 5 years old and maybe things have changed a goalkeeper at CF...haha, might try it in a friendly...I have a Chinese player who has 2 positons, ventral defence or central striker
  9. Morning Chaps I only tend to play players with a 'condition' of 95-100% Which means i often have to play lower rated players and i feel i lose some matches because of this and I've noticed that other teams seem to play players at 70-80% without detriment to results or injuries. So my question is does a players match fitness make all that difference? What are some of your cut-off points for a players fitness?
  10. Re: vanishing player values apologies for the deletions...no longer relevant
  11. Re: vanishing player values ..........
  12. hello gents just taken over a club in a new gameworld and in the last hour all my player values have decreased?...i havn't made any transfers yet, when took over the club the team value was 140 mill and now, in a flash, it is 112 mill?? anybody have any idea what happened?? thanks for any replies
  13. Hello SM overseers I tend to manage lower league clubs and the chairman keeps refusing my loan deals for players with a rating of 70!!! This is happening all the time...Come on, I have 10 players with a higher rating for the position!!! This is totally unrealistic, lower league clubs loan out their youth players too. Why is this aspect of the game controlled by you SM fellas? I have paid to manage my team, so please let me manage them as I see fit...if I need them I can recall them, so what is going on?
