  1. Just started playing last night, looks good so far. The whole game does seem much more 'smooth', significantly more polished than previous versions. Couple of observations, first I'd imagine is a bug unless I'm doing something stupid: I've started a save as Dulwich Hamlet. I've signed a number of players, on contract and loan. Also sold on a fair few. None appear in the 'Transfer History' tab. I'd imagine this is easy to replicate with any save. Have others experienced this? 2nd point, not a bug, just an observation. The expectations of the board seem incredibly high. Despite th
  2. What do the little stars by some of the names in the squad overview mean?
  3. Folks, I play FMT, so I'm not 100% that this is possible in full fat: Is a roundabout way to get past these super strict work permit rules simply to apply the 'no work permits' unlockable? I know it isn't completely the same as pre-brexit rules, but is this an imperfect solution?
  4. So does this mean that FMT21 might not launch on the 1st and could potentially be even later?
  5. Neil, anyone who has purchased a copy through a 3rd party retailer, and I'd imagine that's quite a high percentage, will have almost certainly redeemed their Steam code already. Therefore they will be unable to refund this to then purchase the 'full fat' version. I have a potential solution for yourselves to consider. You could set up an offer on Steam where you could buy the full game at a discount if you already have FMT21 in your library. I'm pretty sure that's possible, I think you guys have done similar offers in the past. I'd suggest quite a steep discount, 70-75%. That sounds real
  6. I think this is really, desperately poor service to customers. I've purchased every version of FMT/C that has been available as a separate product and they have always been a part of the beta. For people to be expecting to play the game today and then be told that you actually won't get it for 3 more weeks, that's really difficult to defend. It technically might not have been advertised as having a beta, but as it has always been included, I think it's natural and quite reasonable for people to assume that would continue to be the case. Neil Brock then using the passive aggressive
  7. Once it's applied to the game, when you receive your youth intake, they'll be better than before. It doesn't necessarily mean you get ten 16 year old Messi's, but the intake should be vastly superior
  8. This unlocked for me after my 3rd season. It didn't give me a reason why it unlocked, just an email to say it had. I used it and did get a pretty superb intake for the level I'm at. As far as I can see, you can keep using it
  9. Hi @Connor Winks I just started up a new save to test it out. Must be a few hundred players that start the game available for loan. I've just checked about 50 players, filtered by wage; some from the top, some from the middle, some from the top. Every single one requires 100% wages. Some of the comments regarding loans in previous editions are valid, it was fairly easy to sign players for a year that were a bit better than you'd normally have access to, that would be for little-to-no cost. But isn't that kind of the point of the loan system, especially at non-league level? I've
  10. Hi @Connor Winks, thanks for the reply and for taking time to look into it. I do find it odd that 100% of players require 100% of their wages to be paid. I appreciate others have found a few players for less, but as Dulwich Hamlet, I haven't found a single player. Dulwich actually start the game with a player loaned until the new year, Reisse Allasani. The club are paying 10% of his wages. If I want to extend it, I would then need to pay, you guessed it, 100%. Further strange behaviour is that if I want to loan out a player, no club wants to contribute towards the wages. So my Dulwic
  11. The issue with all loan players requiring the 100% wage contribution is still present. At lower league level I feel that the loan system is a pretty vital part of squad building, so this is pretty game-breaking for me. I've logged this in the bugs section. Gotta say I'm pretty disappointed this hasn't been resolved for the full release. I'm not keen on starting a long term save until it is rectified, but I'm now hanging on indefinitely
  12. As per the title, I'm still finding that all loan players require a 100% wage contribution. I reported this numerous times during the beta and was assured that it was being looked at and that this wasn't as intent. I've not uploaded a save, as this is something you can check right from the off. I've started a save as Dulwich Hamlet. I've loaded all leagues in England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland and Northern Ireland, using a large database. As soon as the game starts, go to player search and filter players by 'available for loan'. Every single player requires a 100% wage contribution.
  13. I've got a save from the latest version where UK remains in the EU You get the email regarding it on Jan 1st
  14. I've just come on to report this too. Sometimes when the game launches, it is 'off centre', down and to the right by about a centimetre. It does clear itself up if you quit and restart a couple of times
  15. Playing as Dulwich Hamlet again. I had pretty much a full squad clearout at the beginning of the game and signed a bunch of freebies. Not sure that will work again if I start a new save after launch, always find it a little easier to sell on and sign players during Beta. Here's who I've picked up: GK - Luka Nakov. Really decent young keeper, got him on low wages too DR - Kevin Foley. Getting on, is nearly 35 when the game starts, but very good attributes. Already getting updates that he's on the decline, so will only be good for a season I'd imagine DR - Joshua Webb. Solid but u
