  1. I have a promising 15 year old youth player but he isn't getting any gametime in my u19 because most players are older and better. Is this going to hinder his developement? I think i have read somewhere that under the age of 18 playing time doesn't matter, only training matters so it shouldn't really affect his developement if he doesn't play u19 matches, right?
  2. Everytime i "add nation rules" and try to test it ingame the nation i edited doesn't have any leagues to be selected. When i hit advance anyway it will let me select a team like nothing is wrong but in the screen before that it doesn't even let me choose which leagues from that nation i want in my save. It just loads all leagues from that nation. Also, it doesn't matter if i actually edited anything or not. Just saving the editor data after accessing the "add nation rules" menu is enough to **** this up. What am i doing wrong here?
  3. You can turn attribute masking on and to make it more easy you can turn "player knowledge" to 20 when creating your manager. That way you will still see a lot of higher reputation players attributes even if you haven't scouted them. In terms of realism i would say turning attribute masking on is more realistic. While there are scouting databases that clubs have access to, they can't be 100% accurate so clubs can't just rely on them to sign a player, they have to scout them themself and collect their own data. That's why FM without attribute masking on is unrealistic, because the database is 100% accurate and you can just instantly tell that a player is amazing. Also in real life the big clubs have better databases than the smaller clubs. With attribute masking off some small club like Doncaster has the same database as Real Madrid, doesn't make sense. I play with attribute masking on and player knowledge 1 because FM is already easy.
  4. In FM18 and earlier what happens if i leave a player's "Position/Role" training on default so it only says something like "M(C) - Playing position"? Does that player still train on a midfielders training schedule just without a focus on a certain role or does he only focus on the additional focus? What happens if i don't set an additional focus? I always used to leave it on default if i wanted a player to train only a single attribute but i'm unsure if that's really how it works.
  5. What does this promise actually mean? I'm trying to sign a young player on a free and he wouldn't accept to be a backup player without this promise. To be exact: Will develop player, will give player playing time next season (player will expect to play next season). For some reason i can't choose the other options that are usually available like finding a loan or play in cup games but i think that's a Ligue 1 thing. Will he expect to play A LOT even if his agreed squad status is only backup? Would i be better off to just promise him to be a rotation player without promising to develop him?
  6. I should be fine then i guess, really feeling for you though. We're talking about holidaying, right? If yes then that's good to know. I have already played my new safe and it doesn't feel so slow. I was just a bit worried because my last save was literally flying but that was fm18 with fewer leagues loaded.
  7. Hi all, i'm trying to figure out if my PC can handle all the leagues i have loaded. I went on holiday undefinitely (while employed) for almost 3 hours and finished 2 and a half seasons so that's a bit over 1 hour for a single season. Is this an excessive amount of time and will lead to it being unplayable after a few years or will i be fine?
  8. Do you think future FM's will start to utilize multi-threading more? All those intel processors that are topping this list could become more or less obsolete if that happens. FM has already has become more demanding in the past years but multi-theading support would open up a lot of possibilites for SI to push it even further. It's probably going to take some time but it's still a scary thought, i want my PC to last for atleast 5 years.
  9. What's the current best desktop CPU under 300€ for FM? I was planning on getting a ryzen 2600/2700(x) for general use and gaming but after reading through this forum and other sources it seems that intel processors are better for FM (and gaming in general?). A Core i5 9600k costs about as much as a Ryzen 2700. Which should i get for now and how will either of them fare in future FM's?
  10. I have the same problem right now and i'm also playing 4-2-3-1 Wide. Against same strength sides i dominate possession, have a lot of key passes but i rarely create clear-cut chances. In 20 league matches i had a clear-cut chance every 69 minutes and i saw other teams create one every 30 minutes. I'm not doing too badly, currently 11th after being promoted to Ligue 1 so i can't complain. I think top heavy formations in combination with a high press naturally doesn't create many clear-cut chances because there's just not enough space for chances to register as a clear-cut chance. Even if it's a great chance, the game doesn't think it is because there are defenders somewhere near so it only counts as a half-chance.
  11. Hi, i'm playing with CS Sedan and was just promoted to Ligue 1. After doing some board requests i found out that the stadium isn't even owned by the club. It's council-owned but i have the option to buy it. The stadium is actually pretty nice for the stature of the club. A 25k all-seater in good condition. However, i looked it up in the editor and found out that it can't be expanded so would buying the stadium make any sense in that case? It would put me at about 14m in debt with a monthly payment of 140k for 10 years so that's a big investment. Are there any other benifits of buying a Stadium? I read something about not having to pay rent and/or not having to share a certain percentage of the match-day income anymore when you own a stadium but i can't find neither of these in the finances or stadium screens. Where do i see how much rent i pay or how much i give away from my match-day income?
  12. Even if it's technically impossible to get promoted because i'm already playing in Ligue 1?
  13. I'm about to get promoted to Ligue 1 and signed a few players for the next season on a free transfer with a non-promotion release clause of 0. When they join my club i will already be promoted so i thought the clause will never be activated but now i'm having doubts about that because technically i will not get promoted next season, obviously. How does the clause work in that case?
  14. 1. True but wouldn't a (very) structured team shape and player roles on (A) prevent my attackers from working too hard defensively? I basically just want them to steer opposition players into areas where i want to win the ball, either down the wing to my wing backs or centrally to my two DM's. 2. My defenders and DM's have quite high work rate. I have a stopper/cover duo that should be able to play a high d-line, might play offside trap though. Just to be clear these are the work rates of my attackers: 13 (ST), 11 (LW), 9 (CAM/CM) and 12 (RW), their stamina isn't great either. I was just promoted to Ligue 1 so that's the lowest work rate average in the league when excluding defenders. If i played a low d-line how would i even transition to attack? I would usually do it with high tempo but with low work rate and stamina in attack that's not going to work very well.
  15. You're right, i ment team shape not mentality. I'm still playing fm18 by the way.
