If you load load players from other countries when you start a new game, would you guys consider this cheating since then you have such a huge selection of players to pick from. Reason i'm asking because i started a new game with Dorchester Town in Blue Square South and loaded all players from Poland. I was able to pretty much sign 7 or 8 polish players that were way better then what i had on my team currently. Feels kinda cheap but i want to get some other opinions from members on the forums.

Of course it's not. You simply load as many players as your computer can facilitate. You shouldn't then feel like you are cheating for signing said players, as all of the other AI controlled teams have an equal oppourtunity to sign them.

I don't think so mate. It adds more depth to your game and gives you the chance to buy players you wouldn't normally buy.

If that's the only reason you're doing it, then it's pretty lame. Whatever though, it's a single player game.

Definately not cheating, if it was why would it give the option to load all players from a specific country? :rolleyes:

These kind of threads are getting pretty boring btw, there's been a couple now.

IMO

Not cheating to load other nations but how did you find the players??

Can you scout Poland with Dorchester?

This is where its gone unrealistic, stick to using your scouts and you won't have a problem.

Of course it's not, the options there to expand your options in the transfer window and increase the amount of international teams you can manage.

It's only cheating if you tell someone you're doing it. Mum's the word.

IMO no. But then again im also doing it. I always load the slovenian league and try to bring some of the players that i feelwould be better than the league standard. Of course you have no idea how the researchers rated them so i usually offer them a trial first.

Its funny how in lower leagues my team is full of slovenians and then when i get to the premier league it gets full of brazilians.

I'm sorry but who cares? :)

I mean, it's your game so it's up to you.

Is buying a player that you've bought before and thus know will become good cheating? :)

Of course it's not cheating, would IRL the players of the Polish league not be accessable to managers in the English leagues?

Thinking it's cheating by making the game more realistic by including more real-life players is ridiculous. Of course you should do it.

No idea why someone would think of this as cheating - in the real world managers have the entire footballing population of the planet to choose from, from Manchester to Macau, Gabon to Gillingham, Edinburgh to Eindhoven.

I don't think it is cheating,

you are loading a database not editing players so that they support Dorchester. If you think about what you are doing in real life, you are taking time away from your club training ground and jetting to Poland to watch players kicking the ball about a bit, and then offering them wages of "Dorchester-ian" proportions, which they are lapping up because lets face it, Dorchester is the place to be for a polish footballer!

What IS cheating is the fact that a human manager can do this, view players from other nations and attend any game on the (loaded) planet without any penalty on the club they are managing, whether that is the neglect of the training pitch or the ignorance of pre-match prep. However, isn't this offset by the total lack of being able to actually watch a training sesh, or having stats to influence player development like AI managers?

Your problem is you probably have attribute masking off (either that or you're using additional scouting tools.) If you have attribute masking on you might have every player in the whole database loaded but you wouldn't be finding these bargains from Poland simply because you can't scout them to see how good they are. So if signing 8 cheap Polish players for Dorchester feels wrong then make it harder (more realistically so) to spot them in the first place. Either way, it's your own game and you should play it the way you enjoy it most.

I don't see why you would even think this is cheating.
