  1. I couldn't find a save that was close to squad registration, I'll upload one when I get there again
  2. I have problems registering players for Champions League with Galatasaray. I tried registering the official squad listed here: https://www.uefa.com/uefachampionsleague/season=2020/clubs/club=50067/squad/ but at least 2 players get left out due to registration rules. UEFA doesn't list the homegrown status of course, so I have no idea what's going on.
  3. If you're trying to get rid of a player that is a bench warmer or never picked for match day, which is normally the case, the offers will go down significantly. This works both ways actually. You can also snatch players from AI for a lot less than their value if they have been on sale for a while with no time on the pitch. If getting rid of deadwood was profitable, very few teams would go bankrupt in real life. Also, your players are probably earning more than what their current reputation/performance is worth, so the teams that show any interest can't even afford their salaries. On the other hand, if you're trying to buy youngsters with potential, you shouldn't even bother looking at their value. They will charge you for what they think the player will be worth when he has matured. This value will skyrocket in high profile leagues such as the EPL because they have the highest value multiplier possible for players. Current ability, potential ability, reputation and match performance have solid impact on how much the AI will offer you or ask for one of their own. There are also other factors like Hunt3r mentioned, such as the happiness of the player, the opinion their coach has of you etc. Regardless of the details, it is always difficult to get rid of deadwood or buy promising youngsters. That is pretty fair in my opinion.
  4. Here's a screenshot of him. Bought him in January window. He scored only 31 in 20 league games that he played In the last season I didn't use him much in the league. Only when the youngsters were not up to scratch. I have highlighted that season so you can see his CL performance. I have rarely ever seen such performance from a non-regen striker. To top the stats off, he scores absolutely insane goals. If you can afford him, you have to buy him. My recommendation would be to have 2 equally ridiculous wingers feeding him while he plays as the sole striker. I got Pavon on left wing, Ousmane Dembele on the right. Hope this helps.
  5. Imo the big signings dropping to bargain bin or being loaned out is just a symptom. The real problem is how big teams sign multitudes of players to the same location, especially if someone else makes a bid on a player in their shortlist. Any human manager with a mid range budget can turn their team into los galacticos if they keep all the young expensive signings in a short list to keep tabs and then grab them as they go into bargain bin. Btw, Barside, I doubt some sort of pressure system would work here. In my save, 30m Martial is rotting in the bench because he is cut off by 50m Dybala, 40 mil Calleri and Volland. Yeah, Man Utd hoarded them all. It's not like he's being benched behind an aging Rooney
  6. It is the best when I get a league clash on Sunday, domestic cup on Tuesday, Euro League on Thursday and another league clash on Saturday. I enjoy it so much. The more seasons I play, the worse scheduling seems to get. I really wish it would get an overhaul. This has been going on for many years now and it's starting to feel like the only part of the game that remains untouched.
  7. I am indeed getting more injuries (and serious ones at that) without any changes in management style compared to prepatch, but it seems to be the same 4-5 players that get these injuries. I have a feeling that this is due to data changes on players. Some players that were not so injury prone before are more injury prone since last update (like Balanta).
  8. Suddenly in the end of the 2017 season, all the names in the game changed to gibberish names. I searched the internet, and apparently this is something that happens for pirated games. But I do have a legit copy directly purchased from steam, exactly the same way I have bought it in the past years. It's not from some cheap Russian keys website either. Any help would be appreciated. Cheers
  9. With a game as complicated as FM, simply releasing the game every 1.5 years is not going to end up in a game with no game-breaker bugs. The game is not buggy at release because the development team is lazy or doesn't have enough time to fix them. The Problem is that not every bug can be reproduced 100%. This makes them very, very difficult to find. I haven't personally experienced 90% of the bugs mentioned on these forums and I'm sure I'm not the only one. I have seen other bugs that are not mentioned on the forums as well. You need millions of play sessions to polish a game of this scale. And no company can hire hundreds of thousands of testers. As you can see, I am not playing down the bugs. I am simply accepting the fact that the price of FM is not only $50 or euros or whichever currency you're using, but also playing and reporting the bugs so they do get found. It's either that, or we don't get enough new features with every version. Then people would probably start complaining that we're just paying for squad updates and a few minor improvements
  10. CDkeys.com seems to offer two different deals, one without beta and one with beta. Is this site legit? Never used it before.
  11. If you keep on playing him, he'll eventually calm down. In my experience all players calm down and let you talk to them after a while, even the ones that handed in an official transfer request. Faster if he gets the playing time and eliminates the original problem though.
  12. Answer: Because of the extensive amount of variables and logic statements in a software such as FM, the possibility of a broken logic affecting absolutely everyone is equivalent of a Martian invasion right this moment. This is why games like these generally require an army of professional testers as well as extensive beta periods. Especially if the flaws are becoming apparent in a certain play style, it's quite possible that only the players with that particular play style will get affected.
  13. Well, I have my team playing possession game with short passes, building play from defense. Work into box is checked plus the striker, wingers and the attacking midfielder have shoot less often on player instructions. If there are other tools I'm not aware of, it'd be great to know. Other than playing with no forwards, of course. Btw, 45 shots was in "a game", not an average. Average is 25-30 for games I'm controlling (not necessarily dominating). I only go to 15 range when it's a 50-50 game. If my chances are low, then I start removing the "walk into box" and "shoot less often" options. I guess my biggest annoyance with the whole thing is that no matter what I tell him to do, the moment my player has the ball with only the keeper to go, he will try to score. I've never had a single goal where my player with ball lays another player for a tap in, even when they are two on one. Tap-ins happen for me when the ball bounces back or the player with the ball has defenders to go past. Even in the latter, they try to shoot more often than not. In any case. I'm not trying to prove anything here. If it works out for you then that's great. There are people having problems here, and I am having similar problems as well. Don't take it as a complaint because I am not complaining. I've already won the league 5 years back to back, played 2 semis, 2 finals in CL, won the last final. I am enjoying my game. I just don't see success as a reason to not contribute in a discussion that could provide some feedback.
  14. I'm sorry but this is an assumption. As I stated, Jovetic scored 45 goals. I don't consider to my player to be unsuccessful, and I do not expect him to be 100% all the time. I don't spend my time making one single tactic and enforcing it. I'm well aware of the mental states of the players, and I'm quite happy with the amount of effect their mental capacities have on the outcome. In fact, this is one of the reasons Jovetic is my starting striker. He doesn't crumble down easily. I also get dominated sometimes. I have Jovetic but that doesn't necessarily mean I have a top flight team. I'm playing with Galatasaray, who I'd consider a second tier team in Europe if I am generous about it. When I get dominated and have to defend wave after wave of attacks, against PSG for example, they don't get 40 shots and 5-6 one on ones. When they do get a one on one, I'm screwed more often than not I'd also like to say that I'm not even trying to draw comparisons to real life, which would still be fair since this is a simulation game. I'm trying to point out that things are not working the same way for the player and the AI, even if the conditions are similar. We can talk about player mistakes here all we want. But if I am using ALL the tools given to me to restrict the amount of shots being taken, and they are still taking 45 shots in a game, then maybe something needs to get looked at. @themadsheep sorry, I should have clarified a bit more. I didn't mean you were defending the game with your CCC stat comment. I only used that to start my post but retrospectively all seems directed at you That was more meant for everyone on the thread, because these threads generally start and get spammed by "the game sucks" "no, you suck, the game is doing it right" sort of comments. They don't get us anywhere.
