  1. I see. But taking that view, most of the competitions already started, so i guess they should start with teams that started those competitions. Thanks for your answer
  2. When do you guys think we can expect some news about FM 21?
  3. Few days ago i started playing again, few seasons on key highlights. The idea was if the results are good, i dont care how i scored goals. Its too boring to watch. My plan was to go through season or two until the latest patch with improved ME is out, and then i will focus more on tactics and details. Now, when i saw we are stuck with this ME, which i consider the most boring thing in my memory of playing FM, i feel disappointed. And then we read that SI is satisfied with the game, and so are the people who are playing in big numbers. I was the one of those who was playing the game. That doesnt mean i am happy. It only means i grew up with the game and i play in hope to get to some interesting point in the save. So not everyone who is playing is satisfied. You wont lose people, gaming community is growing with each year. Gaming community in general, not just FM. That doesnt mean you should be happy with the game. Actually, to be more specific, when i say "game" i mean ME. Because everything outside of it is incredible, but at the most important part you failed, in my opinion. So i am a bit surprised that it seems this is it, you will leave it in this state.
  4. After playing the game for a while again, after taking a break waiting for the patch, i can say that i regret paying for the game this year. The most boring ME in a long time, sponsorships are bugged, regens are still unbalanced (positions and attributes), some other bugs that, i saw, are reported long time ago are still present. And especially when i see the graphics of some older versions (regen faces, stadiums, pitch texture etc), it all feels a bit disappointing because it looked better before. But, as i once said, the most disappointing thing for me is that the game is full of good features that could make this game incredible, but because of the things i mention i just can enjoy anything about it.
  5. Guys, does anyone else have a problem with home page panels? It switches back to default whenever i leave the page. Not sure if its connected to new update. Any solution to this?
  6. Where is this from? It looks amazing
  7. I noticed the sponsorship income issue too. I was playing with Bayer L. Got the job there in 2022 i think, and in the next 5 years i was there sponsorship money went from 50 mil per year to 25 mil per year. Something like that, dont remember correct numbers. And i was regular in CL and also won 2 german cups. I thought the issue was because i started the save before official release of the game, in beta, but i saw later people are complaining about it, so it seems that issue is still there. One of the reasons i stopped playing FM
  8. I stopped playing for a while now hoping for an update to fix number of 1 on 1 chances. So when i saw there is a new update, i couldnt wait to start again. Played a season, new save, and what i saw is not much better. So many goals from set pieces and long shots. I am doing too well. Got into Europa League winning against teams i shouldnt beat at all. Made some simple tactics, skipped friendlies using instant game button and went directly to competitive games. It feels to me that i have absolutely no control over the game. Because i am not creating chances that my team is set up to create. and opponents are not taking advantage over my weaknesses. And it goes the other way around. It feels like all my midfielders have long shots at 20, or that i am set piece genius. It doesnt feel right. When beta came out i was so impressed thinking with few issues sorted, this will be the best fm ever. But when it comes to match engine, i think, as someone said already, you created the beast that you cant control at all anymore. My opinion is that its time for completely new match engine, if thats possible. Because you hit the wall and there is no going forward. Outside of the match engine, its an amazing game. Not perfect, there are still some bugs, nothing game breaking. But amazing. You really went far. But then i start the match, and i am not interested whats going on, because it feels like i am out of control, as i said. And i am begging you to invest some resources and your time into newgens for the fm21. Inside forwards, attacking full wing backs, sweeper keepers, ball playing defenders, they barely exist after 15 years in game. The game says 2035, but it feels like we are back in 80s. Also, all the newgens are so physically overpowered, its insane. Thanks for proving updates and trying to fix all the issues as fast as possible, it really shows you are working hard and you listen to people here. Keep up and lets hope for something better!
  9. I will have to stop playing this game for a while. In my opinion, its not in good state currently which is such a shame because during beta i thought that with few issues sorted out this will be amazing game. It still can be. But these long balls over defence is just too much. No matter how i play, no matter how good my players are. Or how good opposition is. Defenders just stop running after long balls until its too late. The only way i could stop this was to play with low defensive line, which is the way i dont want to play. I also tried different styles and most chances were created by long balls over the top. So it goes both ways, AI and my tactics. Of course, i admit i am not the best at setting up tactics, i dont have the best understanding of the game,but i think this is a bit too much. And reading this forum, the only solution is to play with low defensive line. At least in my experience. But again, thats not how i want my team to play And also my biggest issue for years now, newgens. Why are there so many wingers, defensive full backs, why are they so physically good (just examples)? This year again, nothing seems to be done about it. And i am surprised that such a small number of people dont see an issue with this. What makes me frustrated the most is the thing that you went so far with this game over the years, it became so good and detailed, you can play it as you like. You can choose what you want to do, what you want your staff to do. So many positive things, little details that makes this game great. And yet i cant get myself to continue, even though i really want to, because of these issues above. The thing i like the most about FM20 is the club vision. Everything makes more sense with it. It feels right. It feels like you actually have a boss, someone in charge of you who will give you tasks you need to accomplish. Also development centre makes the game more clean and your youth players are much easier to follow. So well done for that Lets hope new patch, whenever it comes out, will sort these few issues.
  10. Its owned by the club. The only reason i can think of is that i havent been really successful. I didnt win bundesliga at all in 5 years at the club, didnt go far in champions league, first knockout stage is as far as i could go, and only thing i won is german cup, 2 times. Whats weird is that i went from around 50 mil per year in sponshorship income to 25.5, even though i am CL team. Maybe there is something in it. Anyway, thanks for the reply
  11. That might be it. Still, i hope i will get the option to build new stadium soon. Thanks a lot for the answer.
  12. Not sure where would be the right place to ask so i am going to leave it here. Got a job in Germany at Bayer L. in 2021. Its 2026 now, we are now CL team, value of the club is 1.5B, stadium capacity is 30.210, average attendance for the last season was 30.011, season before 29.114. So finances are great, fans are there, but i dont have an option to ask for new stadium. Current stadium was built in 1958. Is there something about Bayer L. or maybe Germany as a country that doesnt allow me to ask for a new stadium?? Thanks.
  13. How do you change squad status of your players? I have a goalkeeper who i think should be backup instead of first team goalkeeper. The only way i can change it is if its suggested to me by staff
