  1. Funny Screenshots Thread

    Literally on the same page.
  2. PSG beat Celtic 5:0 and 7:1 in the CL this season, and I'd say Celtic and PSV are on a comparable level.
  3. Awesome writeup @Timetxu, I love reading in-depth stuff like that
  4. Ah, maybe something about the country in general, its history, or the town that your team is based in? Would I be safe visiting Guatemala as a tourist?
  5. Huh, interesting. Can you share a little bit more about Guatemala?
  6. FM18 hide all attributes?!

  7. FM18 hide all attributes?!

    Go to preferences -> interface -> skin colours and set the 'alpha' value of each attribute type to 1. It will make the attributes invisible regardless of the background.
  8. [FM18] San Marin-oh no, not him again...

    Damn, those early draws are brutal with the new CL qualification
  9. [FM18] San Marin-oh no, not him again...

    Have you played against Dinamo Zagreb yet?
  10. How's your job security? Will you get sacked if you don't get the promotion?
  11. This is a rather tricky area to balance, because players in FM are rated differently to real life. In FM you have attributes that clearly indicate just how good a player is, while judging a player's ability in real life is nowhere as clear cut. Now, I don't know how good Jack Redshaw is, but he's probably not a world beater in terms of ability or attributes. The fact that he performed so well means that his reputation is probably quite high, so he'd ask for a big wage and you as the manager would probably ask for quite a large transfer fee on top of that. Meanwhile, I'm 99% certain that there are other players on your save with a similar ability to Redshaw, but available on the cheap or for free and with much, much lower wage demands. This means that were the AI to prioritise signing players purely on recent form, it would be at a further disadvantage in comparison to human players - it would shell out huge amounts in transfer fees and wages when it's quite likely that a player of comparable ability will be available for much cheaper and players would be able to game the system too easily. This is a problem inherently connected with the way players are portrayed on FM and I see no easy way to fix this, short of completely hiding player attributes and devising some new way of assessing players; in real life, you are as good as you play, but in FM you are as good as your attributes, which means that human managers are instantly able to spot which player is the best value for money. Ask yourself: would you sign Jack Redshaw for a Prem or even Championship team if he played for an AI club, had the attributes of a good L1-L2 player and no room to grow due to being 29-30? You probably wouldn't, because there are players who are better/have potential to grow and are available for less.
  12. Why is Nouri playing
