  1. Incorrect news information

    No worries - have a read of this for instructions of how to upload a save to our FTP - https://community.sigames.com/faq/football-manager-2018/134_how-to/138_pc/how-to-upload-a-file-to-our-ftp-to-be-checked-r401/ If you could load that save from a couple of weeks prior and try and sign Bennett again, and save the game just before the news item confirming his signing generates in the inbox, then provide us that save game, that would be great, thanks.
  2. Incorrect news information

    Thanks for this. Can you provide a save from shortly before this news item generates?
  3. Thanks for raising this - I will get this logged.
  4. groundsman pitch sizes

    OK agreed that it probably shouldn't refer to your pitch as a standard size if it is below the minimum requirements for the particular league you are in, even if in general terms it is a standard size pitch. Can you provide a save to our FTP? And also let me know which club you are managing, which league this is in, and the date in-game that this news item appears? Thanks
  5. groundsman pitch sizes

    Hi there - the pitch is too small for the rules of the particular league you are in. It is 102 metres long and 65 metres wide, but as the news item states, the minimum requirement is 105 metres long and 68 metres wide, so you cannot keep your current pitch dimensions. Thanks
  6. [ENGLAND] (Official) Arsenal Data Issues

    Nothing to do with anything I have set in the data. Any queries on this should be directed to the player happiness forum. Thanks.
  7. [ENGLAND] (Official) Arsenal Data Issues

    This is nothing to do with anything I have set in the data. If you have questions on this subject you'll need to direct them to the transfers and contracts forum. Thanks.
  8. Do you have specific examples here and can you provide a save please? There is a new feature this year that (for instance) English youngsters may choose to represent a nation they have dual nationality for rather than England if either they don't believe they have the ability to play for England, or if they approach the England management AI in-game and they are told by them they do not believe they have a realistic future career with England. "Too willing" suggests this is happening too often, but this is not what has been found with internal testing. For a real life example where this has happened - Alex Iwobi chose to represent Nigeria at age 18 when it is more than likely he would have been called up to the England squad at some point, so this does happen. I do agree though that if you are finding multiple youngsters are committing to very low reputation nations on the other side of the world at age 17 then this is an issue, so please upload a save to our FTP if you have one demonstrating this. Thanks.

    Thanks for this!

    Fair shout on this for the future, but I'm always reluctant to include current players with a lot of their career ahead of them as favoured personnel/icons/legends, unless it is extremely obvious to do so, which I don't think it is here. Until quite recently, a lot of the fans were on Ramsey's back over his patchy / poor form. You never know if things are going to go sour (like if in future he requests a move away from the club or something along those lines). I think the two FA Cup final winning goals may well see him be regarded as an icon in future, but there is still a lot of time in his playing career for circumstances to change.

    Yep, have made adjustments to various players suit the new system and reflect positions they have played so far this season and at the end of last season. The new formation is called "5-2-3 WB wide" in the match engine, and is the default formation for Arsenal at game start. There were a couple of positional oversights that didn't make it into the pre-release beta, like Elneny's centre back rating, but that has already been adjusted in-house ahead of the full release.

    Good spot - this will be because Nketiah's height isn't set in the DB, it is set within a range and can differ between different careers. Will get his height set at 175cm as this does appear to be what his height is generally reported as.
  13. The issue of this happening at game start is under review in-house. There is a new feature this year that as the game progresses, players can switch to declare for another nation if they have dual nationality so if you mean the primary nationality of players is changing as the game progresses, this is because they have switched allegiance to that nation to represent them in international football.

    It's ok I've stopped overrating him already as my deadline was a few weeks ago
