  1. It affects a LLM save in the long term, as WorcesterLegend said, going from the Championship to the Premiership. If it is a hard brexit, then you'll struggle to survive in the Premiership if you ever get there (that's what happened on my last save in FM18), if it's a soft brexit or no brexit, it won't really matter much, it can even be beneficial. I don't really care if it's a struggle, what I do care is the random date it is triggered. I even have a long save in FM19 that brexit never happened, and every single year there's the news item of "UK will not be leaving the EU". My fellow spurs fan, it's different to turn off injuries or the offside rule...these are fundamental. But what about the developers giving an option to mask attributes or not? That does change game experience doesn't it? Or adding key staff, or how about the official transfer data update, which has players transferred in the January transfer window from the start of your game if you choose to? Those are all unrealistic options in a simulation game.
  2. But having a few of those options coded in the game and activating one of them in a random date (year 1 to year 5!) makes this a frustrating game experience, at least for me. It STILL is a game. I don't want to play for 5 years until i know which of the scenarios the developers coded into the game will activate. I'm not talking as a manager in a random country, but a LLM manager. It's not like all the random funny things in the game like the world cup changing a country due to protests. That won't affect game experience. Within a game, it doesn't make any sense to feel the same uncertainty as in reality regarding brexit, if anyone playing LLM in England enjoys this randomness, please feel free to comment.
  3. But for LLM players, different brexit scenarios as they are coded in the game have a massive impact on game experience! It's like having easy/normal/hard mode. When a fact like this affects game experience so much, there should be at least some structure - lets say, a predetermined brexit scenario AS SOON AS you start a new game, so that you can fast forward and check if this will ruin your game or not. Don't get me wrong, if this was hard-coded, then I'd say, fair enough, I will play with the option the developers gave me. But to have so much randomness (in date/type of brexit) feels like I'm gambling when I start a long save.
  4. Hey guys, I thought so far that Brexit was determined when a new game starts, so because I don't want a hard brexit to ruin my long-term llm save, what I did was saved the game, went on holiday, and waited for the scenario to trigger... In one save that I progressed on holiday, a soft brexit did happen in 2021. So I decided to go back and start with the SAME save game, expecting the same outcome....Well, guess what, a hard brexit (work permit for everyone) triggered in November '18!!!.... I definitely don't want to play with that scenario, but I don't want to remove the brexit outcome all together.... Is there a way in a save game to determine the brexit scenario about to triggering?...or even the possible date. I don't want to play for 3 in-game years and then facing the worst possible scenario. This shouldn't be so random...
  5. I'm a premiership manager after gaining promotions from the conference, and I'm still getting linked to jobs from lower league teams, and asked at interviews if I'm interested...
  6. Ok, here's an update. I went on holiday for 3 years now, each year trying to see if the option is there to upgrade my training facilities, and the only option is to upgrade my youth facilities. I have been playing this save game for over a month now, I'm very disappointed, I always rely on developing my own players, and having poor training facilities doesn't help at all!!! I really need some feedback on what can I do to save my game here. Can I use an editor JUST to make the board request option appear??
  7. Hello, I'm not complaining here, I've just got a couple of questions/remarks for my Solihull Moors save. After a decade or so of in-game LLM football, I just managed promotion to the Premiership. While the team was in conference, I got an affiliate club with impressive training facilities, I think it was Loughborough University or something. So I was extremely happy to keep that affiliation since my training facilities were very poor. Now being in the Premier League and having millions in the bank, I decided to stop the affiliation, so that I improve my training facilities (an option never available since I had shared facilities). Problem is, the option to request the upgrade is not there (I stopped the affiliation in June and now it's July). Moreover, I have the feeling - from previous Fms that was the case - that it will take many years to fully upgrade the facilities, half a star each year. I understand that managing to promote a conference team to the Premiership is unrealistic, but since this unrealistic outcome is possible in FM, then surely a newly promoted club in the premier league can upgrade training facilities from very poor to decent in a year or so? And the final thing that bothers me, the club has a longterm affiliate (Birmingham) that says my youth players share training facilities with Birmingham. What exactly does this mean? Is upgrading my youth facilities of no use? Any feedback welcome. Thanks
  8. Thank you so much for the quick reply, save game uploaded named "Solihull Moors pantelas"
  9. Projected balance for the year 394 million euros. Transfer budget 240 million, spending 3,346,854 million per week on wages (wage budget = 5,913,200 per week). More details here: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=493256775 Just finished year 2034, same youth level category again, board saying in the summary that it is due to financial constraints. I requested once more an increase, "although they understand", rejected due to lack of funding. So what's up with that?
  10. Hello, I'm in year 2033 with my long-term save playing as Solihull Moors. Won everything, 6 consecutive premiership titles, 3 Champions League titles... Now, I know this isn't a big thing, but 2 years ago my board decided to lower the youth level, I don't remember the reason, I think it had something with facilities' quality dropping (the facilities later were upgraded to the fullest, both training and youth). So now my youth teams play in the second tier. Now I tried twice to request for youth level to increase, and the board denies my request....even though they agree with me .....due to...............lack of FUNDING? And I'm the richest club in the world.. So...what is up with that??\ Anyone experienced this?
  11. Just an update on my thread guys, I'm enjoying a long-term save , playing in 2030 now in the Premier League, and really struggling to find good staff, either regen or retired players. By good staff I mean at least 4.5*. Searching staff with good DDM (at least 15 on each), there are too few of them, and from them, their coaching attributes aren't near as good as staff at the start of the game. I'd like to know of other players' experience on this. ps. I have huge database and players loaded with continental reputation from all continents.
  12. yes, I'm a hardcore FM player:) Even have an FM coach calculator tab open all the time just to make sure!
  13. I'm questioning it as an ACHIEVEMENT, is it really an achievement? An achievement is something that can be achieved by trying, not by praying for a VERY slim random chance that in theory can happen. OK I admit I'm a completionist as a player, but I do have to ask, has anyone ever even come close to 5* in every category?
  14. Hello there, i'm talking about the practice makes perfect achievement, to have 5-star coaches in all categories. So...............currently in my long-term save (2025) with Solihull Moors in the Premier League....anyway, I have been searching for 5-star coaches in this save game every few months, and in every save game i have been playing in FM series. The closest I can get is to have 2 Fitness coaches, sometimes I was able to get a Tactics coach as well with 5 stars. So.... REALLY...is there ANYONE here that has managed WITHOUT editing to find 5 stars coaches in all categories - let alone SIGN them in their team?? Why SI do you have such an achievement locked if it can never be unlocked?
  15. Pipson, thanks for a solid tactic, tried it with Spurs and won the league in first season. Just a quick question that was left unanswered, what OI, training and match preparation settings do you use?
