    Is FMM too easy?

    Very true but unfortunately for casual players a few new leagues (which they may not be interested in) isn't a good pull. They did a whole tactic update in 2018 and people complained the game wasn't too different from 2017. They need them big USPs that they can shout about and make people put their hands in their pockets. We're in the position that we will buy the game no matter what, however most of the game's revenue doesn't come from us.

    The only problem with FMM is the small team, probably the AI needs a massive revamp but that doesn't sell games to the casual players so either SI need to hire more bodies, figure a way to make it work on the same system as FM's, prioritise certain AI deficiencies or dedicate time to it with less consuming features that will get the sales.

    Is FMM too easy?

    Shall we come up with some coherent feedback for SI to make things simple that we all (hopefully) agree on? The game depth isn't too easy, in fact, tactics can be complicated for a newbie The AI managers are dumb - they don't make relevant signings, approach your players with too much force and actively improve their squads enough - especially with wonderkids It's too hard to get jobs and you're never approached for jobs Player's being unsettled doesn't seem to have enough of a negative influence on the team as it should do Lower League Management is too easy, probably aided by too good of loan signings and free agents being acquired.. Also, their stamina doesn't play a big influence in the lower league side of the game. How does this sound to everyone? Is there anything missing?
  4. There’s no such thing as unlocking playable divisions in FMM. Sorry
  5. @Lillywhite Dean For the second one I think if more clauses were introduced and/or team status then the game could be more clever with it such as... "Messi wishes to be the club's highest paid player, and requests an option in his contract to match the top wage at the club" "Hudson-Odoi believes he has the ability to be a rotation player for the first team and wants his status to reflect this" "Due to the signing of youngster Mina for a big transfer fee, Hummels feels he will play a key part in his development and would like a wage increase" This will cut down the amount of contract requests while being realistic in the requests managers deal with (and provide context). Personality can play a part too as a professional player won't care about others' circumstances, where as a disloyal player may request more and threaten a transfer request.
  6. +1 to that @Lillywhite Dean I think it can go further as well and start to question the role of a current player in the media and by fans, or upset a star if they're on big wages. Plus a player may come to you and ask for reassurances you're in his plans.

    In Game Editor: transfering players

    It's not a menu option, if you go to a player with it enabled in settings > unlockables, then there's a grey button in the bottom right corner that says edit. This will change to yellow when it's been used
  8. I don't think it's a problem with people constantly buying the game, I think that can only help. I just think this small team is stretched and cannot spend time making these changes as if they do nothing else would be done so they wouldn't have the USP needed to sell to the casual players.
  9. Not on the Editor but you can with w changes.txt
  10. What I'm saying is a lot of people on my Facebook Group have said they don't play with the sound on. While you would like it, in my opinion it's a waste of space when some people play on low end and low storage space devices. I agree with all your other suggestions though, but i personally wouldn't prioritise them over better player management, a transfer overhaul and improved media.
  11. I totally disagree with sounds. I don’t know anyone who doesn’t have their device on mute at all times. Just seems a massive waste of device space when the game is already large compared to most apps.

    I think it has since the Android release to be fair.

    @Lillywhite Dean That, unfortunately, wouldn't sell the game to the casual players though. But I do wish the game had serious AI improvements, maybe if the staff team grows the next few years we'll see that become a reality.

    Out of interest, could you send a screenshot of your tactics please?
