    Hmm... I'd never had a crash dump before. Now, I've had two this evening, both after today's patch. I lost 3 games in total. Anyone else had this problem since the patch?

    Does this work? *boilk* Oooh, 3 days worth of advent calendar chocs - that should cure me. Just a reminder to those that have recently started - PM me if you want access to the Dafuge Tracker and I'll sort you out. Congrats Gypsum too - you must be the first to reach the Champions League?

    Haha, do NOT play! Only bad things can come from it.

    Is anyone else noticing big increases in their players' values after going up a division? The values of half of my squad have gone up by 3-5x since we went up to League 1. I wonder whether this is directly due to the division they're playing in, or whether it's due to their better progression from the better coaches I now have. :confused: Also, does your bank balance hugely influence stadium decisions? If I sell a few players, make a few million, are the board much more likely to start a new stadium? Cheers

    For those losing the will to go on: it gets better! League 1 is so much fun. We're being comprehensively outplayed in pretty much every match, but playing the likes of Southampton, Charlton and Norwich every game is awesome.

    Heh, yeah. It's annoying when you have games every few days for ages, then all of a sudden you have 2 weeks off because they decide to postpone a couple of games as you have one guy playing for the Norwegian U18s or something. FFS!

    Isn't that normal around Xmas time? 26th and 28th December IRL I think.

    If anyone's interested, I got 110k + 30% future sale for him, from Peterborough in the Championship. Very disappointed - I thought he was worth a lot more than that.

    Ah, I see. Yeah, that's probably it - in my first season I won the league and FA Trophy and noticed a big difference in players willing to sign for me. But since then we've been promoted via the play-offs and then 3rd place, and our rep hardly seems to have changed. Oh well.

    Has anyone else really struggled to sign good enough players once you reach League 1? At best, average players are asking for £1,500 p/w (which we simply cannot pay); at worst, they're not at all interested in signing. I'm wondering if the fact we've had 3 straight promotions means our rep hasn't had time to catch up yet, so we're still kind of a BSP side. I've even tried loaning some very average youngsters who were on loan in League 2 last season, but they're never interested in a loan move to League 1 this season! They always say they have "no intention of joining Tonbridge on loan" too, which is just rude!
  11. Exactly. And people with average seasons are much less likely to post on forums, so we don't get to hear from them as much. It would be great for SI if some gameplay statistics were sent back to them, so they can see a spread of how well people do with particular teams. But some people would probably be against that. Could have an opt-out I suppose.
  12. +1 I can't imagine Fergie or Wenger shouting "waste 10% more time lads!" or "reduce width by 15% lads!"

    Quavis: Cheers for the advice. There was actually one Premier League club and a couple of Championship clubs interested in him until I issued a hands off warning (just before he went crazy). I think he has quite high potential as he has 14 Determination and his physicals are still steadily improving, and that's with our crappy coaching too. And most of his "low" attributes are 8s or 9s, so I think with good coaching he could definitely be a Premiership player, just about. Cool, I'll set to "not needed" and start at 300k. deadfncat: Wow, that keeper is crazy! So far in my 3 seasons I don't think we've had a single crazy keeper blunder actually. Does he have high Eccentricity or something?

    Quavis: Heh, I blame the BBC.

    From promotion elation to transfer devastation in a matter of minutes... Despite winning 3 consecutive promotions, Sanchez Watt wants to play at a bigger club. He ripped League 2 to shreds last season and would probably have done the same in League 1. Devastating. I didn't think to grab the screenshot of the conversation we had and for some reason it doesn't come up in the private chat history.... which is a shame as his replies were ridiculous. This shows how quickly he changed his tune though! Need some advice please. I accepted his transfer request, but how much should I try and get for him? For some reason his value is just 30k, which seems strangely low to me. What should I set his asking price to and should I keep his status as "Indispensable to the club"? I understand that "Not needed" will increase the interest in him, but will it also result in lower offers as they think I'm desperate? Cheers
