  1. Not sure what to make of these two.. https://twitter.com/edim_sport & https://twitter.com/KyKyPyKy22?lang=en-gb
  2. Sunday 19th Eurostar to Paris, Monday 20th train to St Etienne and going to Slovakia vs England. 1am train back to Paris, Iceland vs Austria on the 22nd and then back to London on the 23rd. Can't wait!
  3. I know at least one of our Spanish Head Researchers has been on holiday over Christmas. I'm sure they'll see your post in plenty of time before the next update.
  4. Have reported this internally so we'll hopefully have a fix for the next editor update. Just a display issue in the editor, they're not actually receiving this as a kit sponsor income.
  5. Hello, we don't include short term loans in the data. Morton has been noted although that was after our data lock. We'll look into situation with Walker and Moorhouse. Thanks.
  6. Have you added any custom kits to your game from a third party?
  7. Have the clubs officially confirmed this? Do you have a link to official confirmation please?
  8. No one is trying to troll anyone. It was changed based on some advice earlier in the year, we'll look into the situation again.
  9. Thanks very much for the information. I've updated the database.
  10. Tomorrow, sorry for the delay.
  11. We cannot stress enough how important it is to follow the advice given in the opening post of every thread please. We are more than happy to engage in discussion but it needs to be valid and constructive; you're unlikely to get a reasoned response/a response at all if you're not willing to follow the suggested guidelines. We'd also like to ask you to actually play the game and see how players perform rather than take a cursory glance at their profile, decide that an attribute or two viewed in isolation is too low, and be done with it. Those attributes may or may not need revising but it's always much better to see the bigger picture with how the game plays out, even at this stage in this pre-release version. If errors are made, then they are made in good faith. Humans make errors and with 1000s of elements of data in the database, though we would love it to be 100% accurate, mistakes can be made. If some data is incorrect, please respect that this is not a deliberate slight against your club or you personally! Remember there is an Editor for you to make amendments should you wish to. Regarding short-term loans FM 2016, like every one of our previous games, DOES NOT include any player movements where short-term ("emergency") loans are concerned. Any loan that starts after September 1, in England, is considered to be an emergency loan and is therefore not included in the game.* One month loans are too short to include and do not duly influence the game play. We only include long-term loans in the data. In England, this is specifically any loan that starts in the transfer window (before Sept 1) and ends when the transfer window reopens in January. So, please, the omission of any player on a short-term loan is NOT a data error. * The only exceptions have been where a player has been loaned with a permanent move arranged. Regarding youth players and inclusion of U16's People have asked in threads 'why isn’t player X included?' Players have to be least 16 years old as at 1/9/2015 (i.e. they have a date of birth no more recent than 31/08/1999) to be included in FM16. Posting news, new transfers, and existing transfers. Please refrain from posting news articles that have just happened and articles about player X and his move that happened yesterday. These are not data issues, they will be picked up by researchers and updated through the correct channels. By reporting every move, every contract extension and every broken strand of hair all you are doing is clogging up threads. Please by all means post about these in the football forum. If posting about missing transfers that are not represented in the data, please include the date the player signed for a club (or left a club). Star Ratings A common misconception is that star ratings reflect a players ability in the game. They do not, they reflect the player’s standing at your club. So if you own the player, he is judged by your Assistant Manager. If you do not own the player, he is judged by your Scout. Naturally the accuracy of these ratings can vary dependent on the quality of your Assistant Manager and Scout. Attribute definitions and meanings/explanations. Jumping Reach - This is how good a player is at reaching a ball in the air. Its not how high the player gets his feet off the ground and IS linked to a players height. As a guide researchers have a table to use for players with varying heights. The taller the player the bigger the jumping attribute. The smaller the lower.
