  1. As I'm sure many SM users are aware by now, a few weeks back a number of young talents showed up in the game's database without being listed as new players first. This caught many SM players by surprise, but once we were alerted to the fact that these players existed, we scrambled to purchase them as they were/are highly rated talents in the real world. It turns out that the players were added to the database through some mischievous SW users. These users apparently edited old players who nobody knew about and turned them into young superstars, presumably to get an edge on the competitio
  2. Hi Mohamed, Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We have now reviewed this ticket and believe that there is no reported bug. Due to this we are now closing this ticket. Regards Soccer Manager Same old terrible customer service. Main thing keeping me playing at this point is how much time I've invested in one of my leagues. But at this point, even that may not be enough for me to put up with the incompetence of those in charge.

  4. I don't think chat is the problem, but newsfeed effectively killed off the forum for me. Why go to another page, scroll down, write a full post, wait for maybe one person to give me feedback on it, when I can post my result and thoughts on the newsfeed right after checking the result, and get feedback from 5-6 managers, and know that everyone else has seen it too? The facebook group has also contributed to the death of the forum page a bit, though not as much. I think some of the complaints about the forum are more about nostalgia; it has a remarkable history and was especially great when
  5. Looks like Brenet & Gustafson both got overlooked once more. Not too bothered about Gustafson, but Brenet is a shame. They'll only rise him two in the summer, when he'll be definitely deserving of 87/88. Also, this just noticed I have Cesar Montes, who is a regular for Monterrey and was due for +3/+5 when they reviewed Mexico. Think it may be time to quit the riser game and only go for the bigger names. The more below-the-surface players are getting shunned too regularly. EDIT: Thoughts on Nikola Vukcevic? Think he can get +3/+4 or just +2 this round?
  6. If Brenet gets overlooked for a rise again, I swear...bought him last year and have seen him go through 3 reviews with no rise even though he's certainly deserved it.
  7. Neither Heerenveen nor Sam Larsson have been good enough for Sam Larsson to get another raise in this review. If he keeps playing like he did vs Willem though, I imagine he'll definitely get to 86 by end of season. Juste should've gotten a +2 on minutes, though Heerenveen have been poor defensively, so that might be the reason he didn't.
  8. Agree with almost all of these. Jonas won't get 91 in Portugal, SM have capped the league at 90. I don't think Layun will get to 89 on this review, and Paulo won't either, though I would love him to...I have him in one of my leagues. Gustafson should also go from 83-85.
  9. I always take the time to praise SM when they take a step in the right direction, but I also feel a duty to point out when a change results in a step in the wrong direction. I recently discovered that the larger clubs in SM will often get massive cash injections (30-50 mil as I've seen it) at the start of the new season, I suppose to help them preserve their status as large clubs and maybe even mimic an aspect of real world football economy (rich chairmen spending their own money on the club). If this change is not removed from the game, I can assure you that managers en masse will leave t
  10. There's no way. Brenet & Gustafson are due for rises and haven't been reviewed in ages, among several others. I am hopefully they will review the Eredivisie in February/March.
  11. I applied for Roma, still waiting to be accepted.
  12. This is a great step in the right direction.
  13. Classic infernito haha. No one can deny though that you have a good history in the setup performance-wise, and will be a good addition back in. No idea what's being done with Liverpool, been four days already and still no idea if it will be offered out or simply come available. I think it's more likely that they'll be available for whoever to take over after seven days have passed.
  14. I need someone to explain this to me because it is possibly the most infuriating rating change I've ever seen since I started playing this game. How did Cyle Larin get only a +1!?!?!? You could make an argument for +8, but it's MLS so I didn't expect them to give him that. I didn't even expect +6, though he's already a player with far more quality than 98% of 83s in the game. But +4/+5 would've been fair, and +3 would've been harsh but possibly explainable by SM's slow-rise system. But a freaking +1?! What, has SM decided that MLS is a purely garbage league that caps at 80 for non-DP p
  15. I've been one of the biggest proponents of the positive changes that have been made with the new layout, but I have to make my displeasure with one change known - the SM economy. I liked the stadium size increases, but the wage increases have widened the income disparity tremendously and literally have left everyone in our gameworld, 7046 (arguably the most active/popular game world in SM's history), broke and with no funds to make purchases. The result is a dead transfer market, lost interest in the setup, and we've already had several managers quit. Something needs to be done about this
  16. We'll take all the hell you can bring! I'll keep you posted.
  17. Haha your guess is as good as mine Raz. But I suppose someone thought I might be of some help with the forum. Personally, if it puts me in any position to positively impact the direction of the game, I'm all for it. For all the missteps SM have taken over the last couple of years, I cannot imagine at the end of the day that their intention is to put out a worse product; that would be self-destructive and a waste of hours and hours of development. So that is the hope. If being a Mod doesn't really give me a better seat at the table though, then at least it gives me a shiny name on the forum
  18. Happy new year all. Forest entered the new year with a loss to Stoke, but hopefully the rest of January will be happier as Iniesta returns from injury and we head to the midpoint of the season.
  19. Hi, I moved this to the World Championships forum, which is for discussing and growing world championship game worlds, from the Game Development forum, which is for feedback and information on game development. Best of luck with your game world.
  20. Good on you Pedro. I was also pleasantly surprised by Oblak's +2. I thought they'd definitely make him wait till July for another rise. He's deserving of his rating though.
  21. Has to be an oversight. He's struggled, but definitely a lock for +2 I would think. They're not done with Spain though, so may yet get it (Barca hasn't been reviewed yet if I'm not mistaken).
  22. I would've liked to see him go up to 88, but I can understand him staying at 87. He's not fit perfectly into his new Lyon team despite lots of opportunities after Fekir got injured.
  23. I don't seem to get many hits these days on transfer stuff on the newsfeed, so trying here instead. Here are a few of the guys I'm looking to sell in the next couple weeks: Leandro Rodriguez - Everton 3rd Choice Striker - 3.5 mil Edimilson Fernandes - FC Sion Deep-lying playmaker & utility man - 5 mil Fran Tudor - Hadjuk Split attacking right-winger - 5 mil Mauro Zarate - West Ham AM & Winger - 6.5 mil In addition, I'd like to explore player exchange options for Iniesta. The wage boost given to him makes him too much for Forest to handle, but there are a number of bigger t
  24. No, this has been replied to earlier; Saved Tactics are in the process of being incorporated into the new design and should be back sometime around January if I'm not mistaken.
  25. I don't know if this belongs here or elsewhere but would SM consider scaling back TBs from 10 to 8 weeks? Imo 8 weeks would still preserve the realism of having to wait for the window to open and what not, but would make the transfer market much more fluid. Since we've already taken the drastic step of making players sold for cash to external TB'd for only 7 days (which I don't mind, 14 days would've been better but 7 works), dropping all TBs to 8 weeks doesn't seem like that big of a move. I think everyone would support this idea and I think it would be a great change to make in the new SM ec
