  1. Overall sounds amazing, but I worry that there are far too many changes proposed, which - if and when implemented - will just end up creating a whole new set of unforeseen problems and complaints. Maybe it would be useful if not already planned to have some kind of road map and priorities so that we know what to expect and when, and also time to test new features before they are made permanent? Good, in principle, that you have made them optional for existing GWs, although maybe also need seasonal (or every 5 seasons) review votes? With the UI, I hope you will learn from the 10th anniversary changes. People have just about got used the new UI, while many like me still use the old UI because you can do things on there that you can't with the new (broken) UI. Will we end up with three web UIs? And I hope you will not model any new web UI on the SM Elite UI which I have found unplayable. One of the beauties of SM for me and I think many old-timers (your long-term customers) is that it is a text-based, turn-based, real-world-based game. 3D stadiums and matches are likely of little or no added value, and while it would be nice to be able to play promising real life youths in-game without fear of reducing your ratings and chances of winning so much, I'm not sure in-game ratings changes are necessary or desirable, especially if you are introducing other player, training and tactical attribute and options. Agree it would be better to leave the smaller gw setup as an option, surely? Overall, though, agree exciting times ahead, and great to Worlds getting some long overdue attention. Let's just hope it is properly followed through and finished this time, and people can keep comments constructive.
  2. Scott Anderson is a notorious cheat. SM have removed his various accounts countless times from EC2.
  3. That's been a big part of the problem - SM not listening to managers, not responding, not taking our concerns seriously, not carrying out any proper investigation. What would be useful is to have some real improvement in reporting, investigating and dealing with cheats.
  4. I reported this 'bug' a few months ago, and was told it is not a bug at all: 'wages are paid per turn and there are 2 turns a week.' I suspect that, to make SM more realistic, players should be paid every month (and several millions more).
  5. 'There are going to be many changes to SM Worlds coming in the following months that will move the game in many ways back more towards what it used to be in the years gone by.' Great news! Really hope you follow through with all of this, and then focus on improving the actual game engine and game experience, not the UI.
  6. Try this: http://www.soccermanager.com/my-home.php?setinterface=1
  7. This is it! SM finally listened to its users! Hurrah!
  8. Yes! Just like in the old UI! Another 'improvement'!
  9. It's a nice idea, but the 2D match experience for me is hopeless. I have no clue what is going on! It's like watching from the International Space Station as a microscopic Man Utd pass themselves into a frenzy of sleep, then all of a sudden somebody apparently scores, Leicester have won the league, and you've no idea how it all happened.
  10. The new new interface rolled out today appears to be an improvement on the old new interface aping, as it does, may of the old old interface's good looks and superior features. That said, one glaring omission seems to be that there is now no way to view another teams transfer ins and outs.
  11. Not sure how you do it on an iPad, but if you don't know already, the old desktop/new mobile/new desktop urls are: http://www.soccermanager.com/my-home.php http://www.soccermanager.com/mpmob.php http://www.soccermanager.com/multiplayer.php I use all three for comparison on my desktop chrome browser, and the first two on my Kindle Fire.
  12. Just to add my twopenneth, for what it's worth (which is probably next to nothing, even though I've been playing since 2008, and been a paying Gold member for a few years, too). As a few people have mentioned in this thread already, the changes to the economy - and in particular wages - do seem to be too much and unfair, especially to smaller clubs. While I can see how increased wages this will help to reduce player hogging, my little Grimsby Town side in EC2, for example, who I took from bottom of D4 (with all 78-rated players) to D1 and numerous cup wins, will soon have to sell most of my best players just to break even. This is despite a relatively large stadium increase. This change is so bad I actually reported it as a bug, thinking either it was only affecting me, or that players were getting paid twice a week by mistake, only to be told that's exactly what is supposed to be happening! I don't know who SM consulted before making these changes, but I'm beginning to think it was my wife, who will be delighted to see me quit!
  13. Sorry, I should have made it clear I was referring to your final point about the rich getting richer, etc.
