Renyy Posted December 20, 2020 Share Posted December 20, 2020 (edited) I had a pretty well received thread on the lack of support for continental club growth in FM20 and had hopes that this was given a bit of attention for FM21, but after 10 years in the game it somehow seems to have gotten worse? I'm only 10 seasons in, so I'm more looking for other's experience at this point than drawing any conclusions, but this seems absolutely horrid. I started at 3,5 stars reputation, not playing European football and 6,9 million in sponsorship income in my first season. In 10 seasons I've been to two Europa League finals and won once, two Champion League finals and won once, won ten league titles, five domestic cups, two UEFA Super Cups, expanded my stadium by 10 000 seats, become a 4,5 star club and established myself as the top of UEFAs coefficients, and my sponsorship income in the 11th season is 6,7 million. It's gone down? In FM20 while it increased at snail speed it at least increased and while it couldn't keep up with the club growth it would still be significant relative to where you started. Player values also seem even more butchered than before. In FM20 you'd roughly need to be in a top 8 league and have 4,5 star club reputation to get accurate player valuations, but as a top 7 league and 4,5 star club mine are still 1/10th of what they would be in real life. Meanwhile all AI prices are significantly higher this year. I even had the glorious experience of an AI club demanding 150m for their 16 year old, and then when I as a much more merited manager took over that club I had the board step in and sell him at 30m. How is that reasonable? So I'm really just looking for experiences from those managing outside of Europe's big 10 leagues and have been going for 15-20+ years how finances and player valuations are for you so I can decide whether to keep going or not.
