Is there a limit on how many seasons you can play before the gamesave dies? :)
For example does the game ever finish?

The futhest i've been to is 2019 with arsenal a few months ago

There is no limit really, you can play for as long as you want. I'm currently in 2065.

Not really a stupid question. FMH finishes after 30 seasons I think. Having said that the PC version does not. :D

The pc\mac version isn't limited but I would imagine that the loading\saving time, amount of ram and hard drive space needed for a game you've been running for 30 seasons or more would be phonomenal and probably not worth it unless you've got some kind of super computer.

The game's file size eventually becomes far too big for you to get much enjoyment- one of my holidayed saves needed an external harddrive to house it!

if u ran just 1 country, with top 2 leagues from it, i would say you could go on for donkeys years and your computer wouldnt of slowed down enough for you to care. more countries and leagues makes it more realistic but obvs slows down a lot quicker.

I've got all the English leagues only with a large database and players from top clubs loaded (player count of about 22000 I think). I'm in 2065 and my game is only 144MB.

It may some day. I mean the Aztecs think their ullamaliztli seasons would ever finish?

It never makes you retire then? Can your manager just keep going to silly ages?

Yeah, you can. I think at some stage, though, you stop ageing. Somewhere around the 100 year mark. :D

Isn't there some third party program that allows to reduce saved games in size by cleaning out some data that is pretty much useless, like statistics from many seasons ago.

the question wasnt as "stupid" as your level of spelling and grammar.

If you are going to insult someone's grammar, how about putting the effort in to ensure your own grammar is up to standard first? Otherwise you just look like an idiot.

off topic but are there enough quality regens coming through with that size database? Is it still a good challenge?

I think it should end at some point. I mean, if you start out as say a 40 year old manager. How for into the future do you really expect to keep managing? Surely at some point old-age would start to take its toll...

The game only ends when you get fed up with the speed of it.

As it slows down over time eventually you will reach a point where you can't be bothered to wait for it to process everything.

I know that I am vaguely close to that point with my current save which is of all 11 english levels (using Super Bladesmans patch), with a large database with all players from Europe retained, and I am only in the 2016/2017 season and its soooooo slow now.

Plenty, although the English players seem to be quite weak at the moment compared to Spain, Italy and Brazil.
