  1. In Norway, if you use a modified databased available online, the B/Second/Reserve team can reach the second division but cannot go any higher. Managing Lyn Fotball for example, their second team starts in the fourth division and i was able to manage them (and the first team) and get them promoted twice.
  2. Type: Desktop Model: Custom CPU Model: 3950X CPU Base Frequency: 3.8GHz CPU Turbo Frequency: 4.70 GHz RAM: 32GB RAM Clockspeed: 3600Mhz CL14 GPU: Radeon VII Storage Type: nVME Benchmark A: 0:59 Benchmark B: 6:15 Benchmark C: 4:23
  3. Just knocked 20 seconds off the best time in the C Benchmark thread, will add my details to the thread shortly. EDIT Results posted here > Benchmark C really makes the 3950X shine.
  4. I'm going to run these benchmarks on my system as i noticed that the only 3950X user is running very slow memory so it will be interesting to see if there is any performance increase from running tightly tuned memory at 3600Mhz.
  5. Good thing you quoted me otherwise i would have missed this. I am now using a 3950X and can confirm that FM2020 uses every single CPU core and thread you can throw at it, when processing background matches. If you have the league detail on all games for your league, then it will use every core and thread to process the background matches. If you don't plan to run other leagues on full detail, then you probably won't see much benefit.
  6. If that is the case, then why is Finishing listed as one of the three important attributes when choosing penalty takers? Seems daft if it has no effect.
  7. I can confirm that my throw in instructions are still ignored for the issue i raised above. I can only ever seem to keep a maximum of two players back and get countered by the CPU AI constantly. Nothing i can do about it though unless i switch to a back three which will keep three players back.
  8. I always thought the maximum rating you could get was 20, but i checked my profile rating and saw that levels of discipline has surpassed 20 after a few seasons and is now showing 22. No wonder i rarely get any players coming to me with any concerns.
  9. I start as sunday league footballer and no badges. That gives you a total of 8 points to use, i use 4 on attacking training and 4 on motivating. I find motivating helpful to start getting more positive reactions from players when you give team talks.
  10. This thread, and the thread title, gave me a good laugh. Thank you!
  11. I can provide some feedback based on my experience. I am using the Lower Leagues Norway editor files with the latest version of the database which unlocks the Norwegian Third and Fourth divisions. Search Passion4FM Norway if you are interested. I am managing Lyn Football, who start in the third division which is unplayable, however it is available to be selected when starting a game, you just can't manage a team in that league without the editor files. SI added this division to improve the realism for B teams in the Norway leagues. Lyn Football reserves team is in the f
  12. As above, also i think the players influence plays a strong part in how well they can mentor. For example, if the players influence is lower than average, i think the gains are insignificant.
