  1. This wasn't what I was intending to research in my simulation but I can give you some information on it. Click to view the national squad: Argentina | Brazil | Chile | Uruguay The best players have moved to Europe which is realistic so I think it's fine. I wasn't aware this was a problem before so I'm not sure what to think tbh.
  2. I ran a test for 10 years with the advanced database option with players from all top divisions loaded (about 90k players at the start of the game) and only one league set as playable. After 10 seasons, the player pool had been reduced to 74k. Here is the comparison regarding the total number of youth players coming through intakes before and after the update. Year 21.2 21.3 2020 3349 4445 2021 7982 6760 2022 4559 5167 2023 3677 2902 2024 2440 2621 2025 2205 2550 2026 2085 2758 2027 2281 2847 2028 2276 2914 2029 2240 2837 Total 33094 35801 Average 3309 3580 After 5 seasons wh
  3. Sweden u19s at June 2024, 12 out of 19 players generated in the UK. This is very unrealistic, seems to only happen to Sweden which is weird.
  4. Having the exact same bug. Other teams in my division just don't register enough players so they play greyed-out players in games. Game breaking bug for certain.
  5. Seems like the issue with unplayable leagues has somehow got worse after the update. I loaded Sweden as the only playable league and all players from top division clubs from all continents. At the start of the save, the player count was 90 000. Five years in it stands at 80 000. Total amount of players generating from youth intakes: Year Pre update After update 2020 3349 3412 2021 7982 6252 2022 4559 4588 2023 3677 2605 2024 2440 2101 2025 2205 2046 Avg 4842 4200 Obviously there is a lot more testing to be done but these numbers do not look promising to me.
  6. It does seem like the more players you load from the start, the more newgens will generate each year. So my advice would be to just load every player in game if you want the newgen pool to be as big as possible whilst not having to activate every league. The player count will still go down by a lot, but you will at least get the most newgens as possible with the current state of FM.
  7. I have reached the year 2040 in my test simulation, with one league loaded and all players from all top divisions all over the world. When I started the player count was about 90 000. Now, 20 seasons in, it stands at 42 000. More than half of the player count was "removed" in just 20 seasons! The drop of the player count each season has been fairly linear, with about 2500 players being "removed" each season. Here is a table that I put together that displays the total amount of newgens coming through the youth intakes each year, and the distribution between the different continents.
  8. I think I've found something that might be related to this. When I started a new save with only one nation loaded (Sweden with all divisions playable). I searched for players aged 15-16 in the player search and found a surprising amount of free agents. They are all newgens, 15-16 years old. In total I found 2319 of these players. I didn't even advance in the save so they must have generated at the start, even though I didn't tick the "add players to playable teams" option. In terms of my advanced settings, I just loaded every player with the nationality of or based in Sweden, Norway, Germany a
  9. Same here, paused my save when I found out about it. After the update today I tested it to see if it has been improved (spoiler: it hasn't). Started a simulation with only the Swedish league loaded and all players from top division clubs all over the world. Initially, the player count was about 90 000. I simmed to 2024 and saw that the player count was now 82 000. So I looked at the youth intakes. A top league like the Bundesliga got a grand total of five new players through the 2023 youth intake. Hope they can fix this bug soon as it is game breaking in my opinion. UPDATE: It is now 2030 an
  10. I found the rules (on the Faroese FA's web page) and made my own database: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2012772202
  11. So I am creating a database for the Faroe Islands but there is one thing that I have been unable to implement. Faroe Islands has a rule which makes players that have played in the country for 3 consecutive years count as non-foreign. (in Faroe Islands you can have at most 4 foreign players in the match squad, exclusively players from the Nordic countries). You could solve this by setting the 'years to gain nationality' to 3. But this would counteract the real time period of 9 years to gain nationality in the Faroe Islands. Does anyone know a solution to this? If so, I would be very thank
  12. Thanks for a very good read! I was planning to start my own save in the Faroe Islands but I could't find a realistic database, every one I found had different rules... What database are you using in this save?
  13. Wondering if anyone has found or created a realistic Faroe Islands database? Every one I have found have different rules... Doesn't need to be the latest patch.
  14. AFC Ajax - 2031/32 report A very good season saw Ajax reclaim domination over the Netherlands, winning both the league and the cup. The total of 83 points was a new league record. The Euro Cup II didn't really go to plan though, as we lost on aggregate in the 2nd knockout round to Legia Warzawa. Looking forward I'm thinking that I will stay here until a good job becomes available. Manager Profile Season Review League Table CLUB CAREER ----------- Season Team Country Leagu
  15. CF Monterrey - 2030/31 report (Club change) I have absolutely hated my time in Mexico and decided to leave for the Eredivisie side Ajax. My tactic stopped working as the patch came out and I had bought players to fit that tactic only, which meant nothing else I created worked either. I need a new beginning, a clean slate. I think the 32% win rate is the worst of my career yet. Goodbye Mexico, I'll be back later.
