  1. I think he's trying to say his PA value is too low. I've noticed this myself, Fry already maxes out his CA after a year or two into the game.
  2. I don't know if newgen second nationalities count as a data issue or not, but if not I hope the researchers can bring this issue up to the right people: I think the amount of domestically born newgens with African second nationality should be increased significantly. Look at the picture of the French youth team in game that I attached that is full of real players, only 4 players don't have some sort of African heritage. Keep in mind that there are a massive amount of French players in the database that have a second nationality but are not accounted for, which may have affected your decision for the mediocre African second nationality percentages. So even though you may think the percentage is sufficient enough, in reality it is far from a realistic value. The domestic born newgen second nationality values be like Canada where the majority (around 2/3 or more) of players have a second nationality, with a large portion of those second nationalities coming from African nations or territories such as Reunion, French Guiana, Guadeloupe, etc. I hope this can be fixed soon. Thanks 👍
  3. The amount of detail you've put into the draft posts are incredibly good. MLS saves are rare on this forum and as someone who's had a save in the league every FM since FM16, I can say that you're barely struggling at all compared to how I've seen others handle the league and its complex but unique rules. You should ask the board for a USL B team to give your young/fringe players more game time, they rarely say no from my experience and the players in your B team don't count against the salary cap. Good luck!
  4. I don't think this is the case. I've seen an American born newgen with Japanese second nationality generate at the NYRB Academy, but I do agree with others that the percentages of dual nationality newgens should be much higher across the board in the USA, mostly when it comes to domestically born newgens. Additionally, the amount of African newgens in European countries such as Belgium, the Netherlands, and most importantly France needs to be increased considerably. If you just scroll through the already existing youth players in these nations, you can see that there's a large amount of players with African descent based on their names, but my guess is because most of these real players don't have their second nationalities accounted for in the database it negatively affects the percentages. That's why I feel these percentage numbers should be inflated just a little bit more to make up for that database issue for more realistic newgen representation.
  5. They play in Frisco, not San Francisco...
  6. I'm 100% sure this is intentional since the Japan national team and league is not licensed, so what's the point of scouting the nation if it has no players? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  7. It should be like most European countries like France and Germany, where there's a lot of 15 and 16 year old regens along with the occasional 14 year old.
  8. As you can see in this image, Canada has some really good newgen dual national percentages... If only this was the case for the U.S. 🤦‍♂️
  9. I started a new save and the issue seems to be fixed, but the percentages seem to be the same as FM19 which is a shame because it should be much higher. Similar to what I've mentioned before, the chances of American newgens with Latin American and Caribbean second nationalities should be doubled for a much more realistic balance.
  10. This might be a weird thing to ask for, but there's a lot of somewhat populated cities and towns throughout the US that don't have entries in the database. If even hundreds of these cities were added to the database, there would be a lot more variety in newgen birthplaces. I'd be happy to provide examples if asked, but if not, a good way to locate and add these cities to the database is to go through every U.S. state and look for the most populated places that aren't in the database yet.
  11. Hey, could you upload the editor file please? I would love to use this change in a save.
  12. Thanks for the update, hopefully this issue gets patched soon.
  13. Sadly this 'feature' is not working correctly and in fact, even less newgens have second nationalities.
  14. Great analysis @Ikthop. I wonder if this bug is not on the Touch version of the game because if so, I might play that until a patch is released for the main game. And hopefully, that patch triples those newgen dual nationality percentages (and increases them as the game goes on!) because if those percentages end up being on par with or slightly worse than FM19, that advertised 'feature' just ends up becoming a lie which would certainly would not be a great look for SI. Hopefully, that won't be the case and this issue gets fixed properly ASAP so I can start my long term save.
