I'd say it has something to do with him not fielding any players in the first pic :D

Haha. Brutal. How low can confidence get? Or is 5-0 the same as 42-0?

Why go on holiday when you still need a draw to wrap up the title anyway?

Not funny, just boring.

I've no sympathy for someone who holidays and loses, and even less sympathy for someone silly enough to blame the game for their own mistakes :rolleyes:

Why would you go on holiday for a title decider?

Still, this is a terrible, terrible glitch, but you could have lost anyway. You go on holiday and you can't complain. On top of that, everybody knows that the holiday function on the game has always been crap and has never worked well.

42-0 just shouldn't be possible.
I agree you shouldn't have gone on holiday for that game but that result is ridiculous and fm08 loses all credibility IMO

serves you right for not picking ivo ilicevic in your starting xi :p

anyways i never got why people go on holidays. the option of going to holidays in fm is completely useless to me. when i don't feel like playing anymore i just save and close fm, though i can see how that might be a radical new concept :rolleyes:

I could be forgiving, but I just have two things to ask:

1. Why go on holiday for the big title decider, if at all?

2. Why have only one save game, which itself seems to be on autosave?

I would say "bad luck" but it's not, because it was bound to happen playing the game with such risk!

HOW did your team end up with FORTY-FIVE % POSSESSION?!?!?!?

Paul Atherton

How did his team take kick off after each goal? THe highlights would make interesting viewing. Why go on holiday during season though? I can understand over the summer where not alot happens

Probably because the ball was on the centre spot nearly half the time, which I'd imagine counts as their posession. Not sure how they'd go about the kickoff though.

Me wonders, What the feck happend when your team either got A. a goal kick, or B. a throw or even when the first goal was scored, C. Who rekicked off the game :O

Referee should be sacked, tut tut.

How did you get 45% possession with no players!

Eles Gergo
31-10-2008, 14:19
this is unbelievable are you patched?

is this real you didn't faked the pictures ?

and the obvious why did you left for holiday before the season was over????????

There was an issue pre-patch that caused teams controlled by your assistant to turn up without any players selected. Either way, it's his own fault for holidaying.

Im pretty sure ive seen other threads regarding this bug, think they were post 8.02 as well. I guess it's such an obscure bug (given the fact we play 1000s of games combined) that it was never picked up on in testing or fixed.

I do feel sorry for the OP, i dont think I could even continue the save. The holiday thing does puzzle me though, why holiday before a title decider, bizarre. Each to their own though however they want to play the game they certainly didnt deserve this.

You can't get 45% possesion with no players so must be pretty faked.

Or a majorly screwed up bug lol

If there is a bug bad enough to field a team full of no-one, i'd say it's believeable that it would mess up the possession as well.

its a bug that happens seemingly randomly.
i've never had it happen to me though

Why would it take 2 mins to score into an empty net, post the PKM for fun!

opul
31-10-2008, 21:01
shouldn't be possible to happen, because a team has to have at least 7 players in order to play. You cannot put up that many, you simply cannot play a game and it gets forfeit

brookie1402

Two points from me. Firstly, as many people have mentioned, why go on holiday for a title decider. And secondly, looking at the league table, you would have needed to win 43-0 to win the league, so you were never going to do it anyway.

Sy13
31-10-2008, 21:15
The goal difference is because he lost 42-0.

I like the way that Dortmund still went with 5 at the back...better safe than sorry. :)

probably to avoid being offside tbh...

I've seen posts about this bug but I would really like the .pkm, just because I've never seen this bug in my own games.

And BTW, I'm also baffled by the holiday thing ;)

Firstly, you shouldn't have holidayed. Play all your games from now on.:p

Secondly, at least you still managed to finish the season with a +1 goal differential.:)

Now I really want to see what the highlights look like. Somehow I don't think the PKM will be forthcoming though, and possibly the game would just crash then eat itself if you tried to watch them.

Note to self, never go on holiday, ever.

Nah, a much more important lesson is: never use just one save, ever.

And it's suicide putting that one save on autosave.

gcormack
01-11-2008, 16:19
i have seen it happen on a few posts over the years but when ive seen it, it has always been the computer who turned up with no players gutted for you. i would never holiday unless i was an international manager. i also play with one rolling save and i have never had any problems with it.

also, 13 off-target, clearly the strikers are not very bright.
