View Full Version : Automatic wage increase

I am playing FM2011, not the 12 Demo.

One of my players had it in his contract that he would receive an automatic wage increase once he reached a certain amount of appearances for my club. He also had a % increase.

Over the years he has been out on loan at various clubs until I was ready to play him, this means the % has been working but the automatic increase hasn't had a chance. His current wage is 49k a week, the one stipulated in the contract would be an 'increase' to 25k a week.

He has just hit the threshold for that increase and I get a news report 1 game before he does and when he does. But it has now taken him back down from 49k to 25k!

Poor guy. Probably not what he was expecting when he bagged a hat trick for me vs West Ham just now. Also not what I was expecting as I thought the game would recognise he's now on more and cancel that clause, but I hadn't offered him a new contract in the meantime that would remove the clause - he's still on the longest one I could offer when I signed him!

Oh well.

The fair & decent think to do would be to offer him a new contract at the higher wage, obviously this is football & decent isn't part of the equation.

Worth a mention in the bugs forum as this is the sort of rare situation that doesn't get picked up in testing.

I just offered him a new deal and he wants 90k a week now :D

It should be automatically linked if he started on 18K and would raise to 25K after appearances, that's a 7K difference so after each years increase through the percentage clause it should still raise by 7K when he reaches his appearance level.

I've seen this before as well.

I suspect it should be pretty easy to replicate.
