Bugs or intended bad design?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I would like to ask the more experienced folks here about a few things.

First the context - I am playing in a custom league with a few more friends and other random teams. The first batch of transfers have ended and I am able to create a proper starting lineup. The next official match should be in around 9 days.

Here's what's happening:

1. Choosing a formation for the lineup changes the players' positions on the small fields, but the formation button still has "4-4-2" written on it (even though I selected something else).

2. I proceed to setup the players. After moving each and every one of them into good positions, I click on the "confirm changes" button. There is no feedback for that button press. I refresh the page, hoping that everything got saved. Well, nope! The squad reverts to a default 4-4-2 formation with my center forward in the D(C) position (I bet he's really good at tackling!). Any idea why this is happening?

3. Same thing with substitutions and situations. I click on the "substitutions" button. The field of players gets cleared and only their positions remain, but, again in a 4-4-2 formation, NOT the one I was using before. No problem, I select it again. I create one situation (pressing the green "Create" button) and change it to something different than "any score at 45 minutes". The situation I chose is not saved. It just reverts to "any score at 45 minutes" (confirming the changes does nothing once again).

4. Instructions don't get saved either, no matter what I do.

5. I cannot choose what players to substitute. There is no way to drag or select someone else instead of a player.

6. Players' portraits keep disappearing from the field from the tactics screen right after I move one into position. The only way to make it appear is by clicking outside of any player portrait. If I don't do that after each and every position change, I cannot even select the player anymore, thus needing a hard refresh of the page.

7. Linked to number 6, the player names from the reserves' line also disappear unless I refresh the page.

Suppose all of this is intended because, maybe, it's too early to set team tactics before the match (no idea why it would be too early, but...), or whatever. Why, for the love of god, don't we have a simple message written somewhere on the tactics screen telling us just that? Why are we allowed to move players around, set instructions, create useless substitution situations, etc, without a simple error message telling us what's really happening?

Do the developers even give a about this game anymore? Why not close it down already if not?! If the focus is the single player game, then just prevent us from playing SM Worlds already. Stop milking $$ when you know you don't care anymore. Is it that hard to be honest and make a sincere announcement about this?!

Thanks

How many players are in your squad?

In a standard world you can't have less than 21 players (with 2 goalkeepers), should be that causing you problems

Ok, I'll try that. 
Why isn't this stupid game giving a simple message saying just this? :(

At the moment 16 ( I can create a proper team with them).

You need to have the subs bench full before the tactics work properly (18 or 19 players, can't remember which), it'll be fine then.

I am struggling with all the issues from the original post, some of my squads have got 50 players plus, none have under 23 players yet there now seems to be a spot on the bench free but no way to move a player to that spot if that is the issue, you can't drag the player over and there is no player in that slot to swap them with
