i`m just about to start my first game on fm11 with just the english leagues playable with all other top european top leagues on view only with a large database ,this gives me 57 leagues from 52 countries with players loaded from top division clubs in europe.the rating system says 1.5 stars which is the same as just the english leagues loaded and the same database.
i am only going to hopefully manage my team birmingham city but want accurate european seasons do you think my game will slow down a lot if i play many seasons.
my system is AMD Athlon 64 x2 dual core processor 6000 3ghz with 2gb ram
Sure it will run just fine. I have more or less the same setup as you (same PC specs and a bit more leagues on playable, also 1,5 stars). In FM10 it ran smoothly, even after a few seasons. Guess it will be the same for FM11.
Off topic: can you let me know wether you get a reserve league invitation cause I also started with Birmingham and didn't seem to get one, so no fixtures for my reserves, which is a pity. Want to know if I missed it or not. Thanks!
My experience is that it doesn't matter how many leagues/divisions you put on view-only. I'm running the 2 dutch divisions on playable, every other possible league/division on view-only. Runs just as smooth as only the dutch divisions on playable...
