    [Portugal] (Official) League Specific Issues

    Hello, I'm playing in Portugal for the first time, so forgive me if this is known or a quirk of the league. I've just finished my first season with Vitória and had the top two tiers loaded (the third tier is being added any time now). Three clubs were set to be relegated from the Primeira. They ended up being Chaves, Santa Clara and Feirense. I spotted only two clubs were set to be promoted from LigaPro, they ended up being Pacos Ferreira and Estoril. I got a news item through on new season day saying after last season's promotions and relegations, Primeira Liga has one fewer team, taking it to 18 in total. Gil Vicente have appeared from nowhere (I believe they play in the Campeonato?) to be promoted to the Primeira for 2019/20. Looking at the Campeonato, they weren't one of the three teams to be promoted to LigaPro and it appears they weren't even assigned to be in the Campeonato.

  5. Sorry if this has been raised already. If I'm scheduled to play a match on a Monday, I seem to be unable to edit the match prep training module which is set to match preview to anything else. Seems to be fine on any other day, I can change it to any other training option. Let me know if you need any examples.
  6. The main reason at the time of creating the tactic was that I still had quite limited players, so wanted to keep it as simple as possible, alongside really liking the movement I was seeing from the role with the added PIs and I think the CF(S) has dribble more as a set PI, which I'd rather let the individual player decide on. Good to hear it worked well for you. It plays some lovely stuff, which is why I can't bring myself to move away from using it!
  7. Thanks for all the kind comments chaps! This is very much just a fantasy database but I do really hate our current league setup. It's boring to play on FM too so that's why I wanted to make this new one. I had a great save in Germany on FM17 and thought the 18 team leagues and just playing each other twice would work really well. The teams are in leagues based on their standings from the 2016/17 season
  8. Anyone planning to play on this now the season is over for something a bit different?
  9. Hi @scott_c13, sorry I've only just come on and seen your note! Have you worked out how to get it in-game? Once you've downloaded it you need to add the file to your editor data in the FM18 documents folder. When you load up the game it'll appear under Scotland if you've got it ticked to load up.
  10. Tenerife C's record is ridiculous! Incredible season all round.

    This is right up my street, love a rebrand. Will certainly be following along! Any kits or a badge at all?
  12. Prize money does go down all the levels quite sensibly I think @grade, the Scottish Cup also offers an alternative way for the clubs lower down the pyramid to earn a bit of money too.
  13. Just caught up with all of this @MarcxD, lovely progress! I spent the entirety of FM17 managing RBLeipzig, I then added a manager to RBSalzburg a few seasons in, and then towards the end of the save rebranded West Ham as RBLDN and added a manager there too. Was brilliant managing the three clubs, aiming to move players amongst them all. I also managed Tenerife on FM15! Really enjoyed catching up on your save so far.
  14. Sounds great! I really didn't fancy doing any regionalisation for mine, but the Scottish Cup remains and is all in from the 2nd round. Makes for a really fun knockout cup.
  15. Cool, sounds fun. I wanted to stay away from regionalisation, and just make it an absolute free for all in the leagues. Also wanted to use as many real, active clubs as possible to at least keep it a little bit realistic, but I do love a more fantasy structure too!
