Let the "pain" begin :D

@darren1983 to avoid confusions, Russia is still not up for the challenge, right? 

Far as I know Russian clubs still can't be in Europe so yeah. I should probably remove them from the OP actually.

Forcast to finish last so should be an interesting first season

Wales ticks over on the 25th june again, not sure what day for new teams as it skipped a few days from the 12th to the 16th may without pausing but it is in that timeframe for different teams

Good luck everyone. I don't plan on starting my journey until 8th November, but I'll be keeping an eye on things in the meantime.

I'm waiting for release as well. but is there really a reason to? Is there a history of bugs being fixed that wouldn't apply to a beta save?

If there is a bug in league promotion/regulation or other league rules based bugs I could see those requiring a fresh save to be fixed. I'll be looking on the forums as we near release to see if there is any glaring issues in the English leagues and if so I'll restart.

Mostly for database issues and any youth related bugs that could turn up. Some database mistakes have already been found it seems.

Hard to argue with that logic. I instantly don't want to do scouting so I'll have a new save soon :)

This is a first for me having a Fan Trust Takeover, have these always been possible? For me it's always just been a 'local investor'.

I hope this makes the new Supporters Mechanics doubly impactful, though on first glance the "Board Vision" and "Supporters Vision" still seem the same. Specifically, I would think the "Supporters' Influence on the Board" would automatically go to max, cause like they are the board? Question is if this is bug or intended.

Ilkeston had an intriguing story to me. From what I had read this was the fourth or fifth club to try to take root in Ilkeston. Also not a club I've seen people trying so that added to my own interest.

The club only has one kit, but the game has that blue color kit. I managed to find the main and sleeve sponsors and used a cool site that removes background (Remove bg or something like that) to make it play nicer with kitbasher. For the first season I aimed to get as close to their actual kit as possible. The second season I'll go crazy but keeping the color scheme.

Haven't tinkered with tactics but I have enough players to not have grey players so a good start.

I'd report that as potential bug personally. Might just be an oversight, but it's good to report anything, especially in the beta.

Meet the new manager of my favorite team in the world, Racing Mechelen.

 

For Belgium: save on the 1th of April to get new teams, then holiday until June the 30th.

You just saved me a bit of time. I found June 30th, but was unsure of the team date so I was experimenting for it. I am also going for Belgium now that they reduce the number of matches in all tiers! Was one of the reasons I struggled to get into Belgium before. 40 league matches is too many! :D

@darren1983 and @XaW I believe this year South Korea can be included as there is relegation/promotion from division 2. Can you confirm? I am planning not to start until full release but thought I'd ask since the new thread is up

If it's relegation from the lowest tier, go wild son! :D

I'm still not sure that the amount of games is decreased. You never know in Belgium. ;)

Started with South Shields as I have unfinished buisness there from FM21.

The board expects play offs in the first season but I have some problems with the improved AI management. I have difficulties with holding a lead...

From a quick look there doesn't appear to be relegation first season but I'm just testing it now so will let you know.

Edit: Seemed for 12 months and there is no relegation from South Korea League 2, I don't know if it's meant to be in or just comes in later seasons (like Holland did/done) though

I made a report the same time I posted here and SI have already responded that they are investigating.  I promptly went on a 10 game winless streak after the takeover so I'm probably lucky it's not max fan influence

Yeah, my reply was based on the fact that it was relegation. I did not test it personally.

Yes, yes, I realise I am spamming.  But you should all know me by now in that I have several saves on the go at the same time.  So here we go in Scotland.

I feel like I am close to completion on my ASA save in FM22, so will give myself a couple of seasons more until I switch to FM23. Should I post my updates here or in the FM22 thread?

During Beta I'd say the FM22 thread will still be best but on full release, if you're still playing it then think here is fine.

Good luck ! Regens from my hometown :)  Started with them three or four times but always decided to quit (first team because of data issue, second time because of financial issues).

Do you mean because of youth costs or something else ?

Youth costs are 44k, but all promoted teams are professional teams, and the wages are way too high.

I've simmed up to 2030 in the game with South Korea just loaded. No promotions from K LEAGUE 3 clubs into K LEAGUE 2.

I noticed some reports about development bugs - specifically on technical attributes.

Is this a real issue like we had last year and if it is.. this could be a long term problem for this challenge ?

Not really. Well at least I hope. Its in beta status so I hope SI can fix it for the final release. And thats the plus of the beta status.

I just hope Youth Facilities bug is gone.
