  1. Being a Wednesday fan it pains me to say how much I will enjoy this content. Very intrigued as to how you play the game though so will be keeping tabs on this. As for the 8 hours manually searching through clubs that is a crazy amount of time would you do that often or maybe once a season?
  2. Store brought laptop. http://www.laptopsdirect.ie/stormforce-wildfire-core-i7-6700hq-8gb-1tb-128gb-ssd-geforce-gt940-dvd-rw-7270-9069/version.asp
  3. Just done the benchmarking test on my new laptop and here are the results CPU: Intel Core i7 - 6700HQ CPU Frequency: 2601 MHz RAM: 8GB 2.60GHz OS: Win 10 64-bit Storage: SSD Test A Time: 4 min 51 sec Test B Time: 9 min 37 sec
  4. I just got it this morning, i'll let you guys know as soon as I can what it's like in terms of loading leagues etc, it might take a while to get everything downloaded though as I still have very poor internet speeds - joys of living in Ireland.
  5. I went with the http://www.laptopsdirect.ie/stormforce-wildfire-core-i7-6700hq-8gb-1tb-128gb-ssd-geforce-gt940-dvd-rw-7270-9069/version.asp in the end, ordered it this morning but then they decided they wanted to ring me while I was at work for a security check (not sure if this is standard procedure) and I couldn't take the call so I probably won't get it until Friday at the earliest. I'll do the benchmark when I can.
  6. There must have only been 1 in stock with three of us looking at buying it. Enjoy. Back to looking for me @GriffiN94
  7. Very frustrating lol I was about to order one and saw your post.
  8. Thanks for all your help pal, I don't even think the low/medium settings on the 3D engine is much of a problem for me to be honest as long as it doesn't lag and I can have the stadium and weather effects showing I think that will be fine. I'd imagine i'll probably purchase the HP laptop then.
  9. To tag you just type @ and then the persons name and to multi quote you press the plus sign under the posts you want to quote and then in the bottom right it'll say "quote 2 (or however many you're quoting) posts" Thank you, you've been really helpful with those two posts. I am tempted to purchase the StormForce one but I don't know if I could justify paying €773.97 plus postage for a laptop which I most probably will only play FM on and use to browse etc. You say the HP would be good but have to run FM at slightly lower settings, would that mean it won't be able to load numerous leagues or are you talking in terms of the 3D match engine? (At the moment I play without the stadium and weather loaded in basically all I see is the players, the pitch, a ball and goals) Generally what is the lifespan on refurbished second hand laptops?
  10. Is this one of the best laptops to purchase around that price? Considering buying one myself and that fits into my price range.
  11. Hi i've been looking to buy a new laptop recently, due an upgrade on my current one that works fine but can't really cope with the 3D match engine unless I untick the crowd, stadium etc in the preferences also I can only have around 4 leagues loaded at one time and it usually goes down to 3* speed at that point. I generally only play FM on my laptop in terms of gaming but obviously use it for other daily uses. Anyway I am obviously a n00b when it comes to buying something good which is why i'm asking for advice in this topic, i've looked through this and had a look at all the links posted and just wanted some advice on these few laptops that I am looking at, one of which I saw was linked on here. Would they all be good enough to play FM lag free with multiple leagues loaded and be able to handle the 3D match engine without having to turn the stadium etc off? I have no issues paying for the most expensive one but I just want to know if it's worth buying that rather than getting one of the other cheaper laptops i've seen? http://www.harveynorman.ie/computing/laptops/hp-pavilion-15-notebook-15-ab128na.html http://www.harveynorman.ie/computing/laptops/acer-aspire-15.6-laptop-es1-523.html or the one linked here http://www.laptopsdirect.ie/stormforce-wildfire-core-i5-6300hq-8gb-1tb-geforce-gt940-dvd-rw-15.6-inch-w-7240-9067/version.asp Any help is much appreciated.
  12. I purchased this game and started a save with Sheffield Wednesday last week, as the usual first save being the club I love it generally turns into a very long save. I had updated the transfers so Jordan Rhodes was with us. Started off trying to play something similar to Carlos Carvalhal's 442 system from last season and had varied results so changed to a 343 heavily based on the way Chelsea play (This was all to try and get the best out of Fernando Forestieri and Jordan Rhodes) that started off well winning a few games but I wasn't convinced by it and injuries to key players forced me (and a terrible performance against Derby) to change once again this time to a 4231 formation and instantly we started playing how I wanted us to. Almen Abdi shone in the AM(a) role, which saw him finish the season with 10+ goals and 8+ assists, Forestieri wide left as an AP(a) with free roam and Rhodes or Hooper as a DLF(s) we went on a superb run which included an FA cup run (which was ended by Arsenal 3-2 loss at Hillsborough in the 6th round) scoring for fun and playing great football that led us to the top of the Championship for a few weeks. But then the injury curse happened again and despite my best attempts at rotation with the packed FA Cup and Championship schedule we dropped off and went through a run of poor performances and results losing 2-0 away at Rotherham and 1-0 away at Barnsley before getting beaten 2-1 by Ipswich in the second last game of the season which forced us to finish 4th after looking like we'd get automatic promotion. Now i'm about to play the playoffs with the teams in them being QPR vs. Sheffield Wednesday & Leeds United vs. Fulham I am not hugely confident with winning them as we seem to not be able to score goals as freely as before but have just got Forestieri, Matias, Kieran Lee, Ross Wallace and Tom Lees all back fit again so hopefully they'll make the difference for us in the playoffs and help us go up. I'll update later. The only signings I made were in January bringing in Tyrone Mings from Bournemouth, Conor Goldson from Brighton & Stuart Armstrong from Celtic, sold Pudil and some other fringe players who were eating up wages despite not being involved.
