  1. Hello!

    I took over Ross County in december last year and everything looked alright. Didn't think so much about the fixture list. 

    This year however I think something has broken. This is the fixture list:

    As you can see there is a break in the Premiership between 24th of October until the 26th of December. Then we go nuts in January and Feb with 18 games in total in those two months. All I can find about the Premiership is that there usually is a break between 30th of December to 17th of January. So this is surely not right?

    I don't have a custom database loaded in this save.

    Before I even begin to discuss this. What is your agenda here? To vent steam, or try to figure out what happened in your game? If it's venting, then please say so, because anything we discuss is moot if that's the case.

    I've given up, this is what Trump would sound like if he played FM.

    So what your are saying is real life again ,like i said before search google and find a transfer where a club turn down millions for a 16 year old but took peanuts instead !!!

    On my game my head of youth development  is NOT doing his job despite him being better than all the premiership head of youth im paying him 35k a week to just sit there ,despite my club being the top rated club on FM and everything just as good and better than the same AI clubs who get great prospects year in year out ,and can you please stop quoting real life examples because the game is far from real life ,but real life is quoted just to hide the fact the AI favours AI 

    Agents in real life get the player the best deal - on FM the agents get there player the worse deal 

    Transfers- human club from AI club player worth 20million will cost human 140million - AI to AI around 40/60mjllion human to ai player value 50million your lucky to get anywhere near that after the player is unhappy after the first bid and whacks a request in ,but human can never get a player from AI team to be unhappy and make rest of his team mates unhappy 

    I could rant on ,but the like i said everything on the game is designed to hinder the human player ,spending millions on youth set is pointless waste of cash as it does nothing to improve your youth ,its easier just to scan youth intake list and poach them yourself .

    But hey so long as the ME can be improved each year we can just wallpaper over all the important parts 

    And i will take my ban of the forum seeing as im not posting within the rules ,oh its a great game look it happens in real life 😂😂 

    So what you are saying is that the game/AI is against you because you are a human player and you have a constant disadvantage and yet you are the most reputable club in the world. Who did that? The AI?

    Im in my 12th season and im saying what i see in the game ,is that not allowed ? Or do we all have to sit here and say its wonderfull for fear of getting banned ? I didnt know he was si staff ,so hes hardly going to say its not is he ,and like he said theres a "chance" your club could do the same to AI , theres also a chance "you" could win the lottery mate ,so am i lying or his he lying ?

    I know he isn't lying nor do I think you are lying but you are frustrated which is common. But don't take it out on people calling them liars.

    A strong chance but no chance , ive got top youth recruitment , top youth training cant improve anything on it no more ,14 top youth coaches, im listed as the worlds top club , and im still waiting for a youth player above 3 stars , to say it works both ways is a lie ,AI to AI it maybe does but the game dont favour the human player one bit. In fact the game does everything it can to stop you.

    So SI-staff tells you how it works and you claim they are lying? Why are you even here then?

  6. I've been using it now and then in the right circumstances (at least what I think is right) and thats usually when we are up against an opponent we aren't expect to win against. 

    The only talk option I never use any more is the one pre-match where we can tell them to get revenge against a team we lost to before. It ALWAYS give good green reactions but I have never ever won a game where I used it :lol:

  7. Description: Whenever I go into the Scouted screen and look at the players my team has scouted I can't see the percentage below the Recommendation anymore.

    This is what it looks like:

    I've uploaded a save game named "Joakim Lundmark - Lillpite FC.fm"

    So what?? Its huge problem.

    I mean check the real life premier league top scorers from 1999/2000 and see the diffrence.

    Strikers are useless now or there is some other problem .

    What more Aguero scored 20 goals and 3 of them were from penalties, auba scored 2 and thuavin 1 from penalies.

    It probably is a bit on the low end, but if you check the average for top scorers in the PL since 2000 its 25,8 goals per season. The lowest season being 2008/2009 with Anelka on 19 goals. The highest being Salah on 32 2017/2018

    Updated to 20.2.4

    New save, first game of the season : SEVEN one on one with the Gk ... ALL MISSED !!!

    Really ? Really SI ??? SEVEN ( 7 ) ???

    Callum Wilson has 17 finishing ... really ?

    What do i need ? A player with 20 finishing to score a one on one ???


    To be fair I haven't had this issue at all since the public beta-patch and now I think it's even better.

    It does annoy me a little when I see England internationals in the 2030s with names like Nigel, Clive, Norman, Ken, Trevor, etc... but I understand where you're coming from. Some 'old' boys' names like Arthur and Jasper have started to come back into fashion, so it does happen.

    It would be a shame if, say, we eventually ended up with an FM game database where there were 1,000 Jordans or Callums in the UK but not one Fred or Peter.

    Yup, I agree it's a bit annoying but it would be very strange any other way as well. Currently one of the more popular names in Sweden is Axel, when I grew up only old people was named Axel ;) 

  11. Names go in cycles, old names return and gets popular again. Also, people are naming their kids all sorts of names these days. Why would this be strange, really? It would be awful if the name generator only took current popular names for each country. Imagine 15 generations of newgens all named from the 100 most popular names at the creation of the database.

    Besides, surnames might come from any nation, his parents might be immigrants from a country where Sardinha is normal. Or they might have just decided to take a new surname based on their love for sardines.

    Yeah the star rating is very much impacted by form - as in real-life the perception of a player is biased by how they're performing in the 'here and now' ... if a striker goes on a barren spell for 4-5 matches then pundits start asking if he's past it rather than realizing he's just been unlucky etc.

    This is entirely intentional and is intended to (1) be realistic, (2) mean that you have to use your own judgement to cut through the opinions and ultimately decide what YOU think as a manager .

    PS - Glad you're enjoying the game :D

    Good to hear it's working as intended, it's a bit different from how I've experienced it in regular FM but I definitely like it!

    An idea would be to keep the potential star rating maybe a little bit less dependant on form since we know the ability has been there once, maybe there is potential for it to return. Just a thought :)

    Thanks for a great game.

  13. Gotta say I love this version of FMM. I've soon played FMM20 more than I have played FM20 and thats a first.

    Question regarding coach reports. Should poor form effect the star rating very much? I took over Fiorentina and Marco Benassi was rated at 4 stars. After about 6 games with an average of 6.11 he is now at 2 stars. This happens all the time, the stars seems to be affected more by form than actual attributes.

    Is this working as intended? @Marc Vaughan

  14. My latest "feedback" update on the game, in no particular order:

    It's interesting that I found the ball over the top very annoying up until my last save (started a new Liverpool save about a week ago) and now I have very few issues with 1v1s and long balls over the top.

    Amount of CCCs has also gone down in this latest save. Again, not sure if my tactic is really bad and the pure quality of my Liverpool side hides that fact or if it's something else. But last season 8 CCCs in a game was the most I had and that included a single situation that generated 3 of those after the goalie made several world class saves in short order. Our conversion rate on CCCs are around 60-70% which is more than satisfactory in this case.

    I still have too many shots (a match with less than 30 shots are uncommon) and miss too many but at least, and I really don't know if it's my tactic or not, I don't see 5+ 1v1s per game or perfect long balls all the time. Not from our side or from the oppositions side.

    Penalties are an issue, especially for elite sides it seems. I never had issues with missing penalties when I played three seasons in the lower leagues of Swedish football but Salah, Milner and Fabinho almost never scores a penalty.

    Players trying to save a loose ball from going out and then almost always end up standing still on it until an opposing player arrives and snatch it is a pretty prominent annoyance.

    All in all I'm enjoying myself (I just wish Man U were worse ;)).


  15. I have to change my earlier opinions regarding the ME from very positive to barely positive. I moved away from the top teams and have now been playing one season with Heerenveen and one with Aberdeen and the amount of CCCs are just extreme. A lot of the games there are more than 10 CCCs combined between the two teams. Despite this scores are rarely high, I just played a 4-4 match that apparently was the new record for most goals scored in the league.

    Amount of chances in general seems very high, or maybe I don't have good enough knowledge about real world stats :P

    But surely 123 chances created (Celtic in 3rd place) in 9 games is too much? Liverpool got 78 chances in 6 games. Barcelona 121 in 9 games and so on.


  16. Totally feel you, I would have done the same if I felt this forum took away any form of enjoyment. Luckily for me I seem to mosly be able to enjoy the game no matter what anyone else thinks, but there are occasions when I need to take a break as well. This attribute thing had gone completely unnoticed until I entered the forum, once I started reading about it I seriously considered starting a new save despite being 4,5 seasons in. Eventually I decided to keep going, it just didn't disturb me in the slightest :)
