  1. I'm assuming my laptop will be fine. Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-7700HQ CPU @ 2.80GHz Intel® HD Graphics 630 NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 32GB RAM
  2. How would it be different than the current system? It's not for-profit DLC.
  3. https://www.cnet.com/news/google-stadia-will-offer-game-trials-livestreaming-and-mod-support-vp-says/ This seems to indicate Stadia will have mod support. Seems to be coming from this interview with the Stadia VP (question asked at ~38:20). Immediately after, he discusses support cross-play (uploading save files from PC to Stadia).
  4. I keep lists for U18, U21, U23, and O23 players and update them every season. I trim during the transition, dropping low rated players and player who don't look to be progressing. By the time they are in the O23 group, the group is pretty thin and consists of players I'll only go after if they get unsettled or reach the final year of their deal.
  5. In this sense, similar to the randomization of a club being target of a takeover, there could be random philanthropic (retired star's setting up an academy, for example) or government investment into football that improves club and/or national team infrastructure, national interest, and youth rating. The national team doing well in a high profile tournament spurs interest, especially among youth, who then take to the sport and play with the club teams and emulate their idols from the national team's glory days. A bit of a cycle.
  6. Right now, the training calendar for the first team has a copy and paste function to copy schedules week to week. But for the youth teams (in this case U23 and U18 in England), do not. Would be nice if that functionality could be added to all training calendars. (my mouse was hovering above August 14 in both screenshots to to display the Copy Paste button)
  7. It would be nice to do some "pending hires" when your own staff are approaching the end of their contracts. For example, my U18 and U23 Managers are out of contract at the end of the season. They did well with my youth teams, but I want to move on to younger staff. With that in mind, it would be nice to be able to offer the U18s manager, effective July 1 for example, after the incumbent's contract is up. Same when you get notice that a staff member is retiring. Either, at that time, their position should be available to fill, or at least be able to do a contract start date that falls after the staff member's retirement date.
  8. I'd also like to see a "Cult Icons" section. Would populate with academy players who are popular with fans but might not be the star players. Or players who put in a great performance or two against rivals or academy products who make the squad registration, but aren't in the starting XI.
  9. I've always wanted to see a better breakdown of the club wage structure to include not only the bonuses a player earned, but how much for each bonus (appearance fee, goal bonus, unused sub fee, etc)
  10. I have 28 players in my first team squad, seven of whom are making the step up for the first time. I'd like to off-load Giroud and Heaton, but no takers and the English window has closed. Asterisks are regens.
  11. In general, I want to know how people maximize transfer fees? Do you place players on the transfer-list and wait for an offer or o you offer a player out without placing him on the list? Either way seems that when ever I do that, it signals that I don't want the player and therefore, vultures swarm with cut rate offers. I rarely get an offer that matches the listed value of a player, much less receive an offer at my asking price or one that blows me out of the water (I have on two occasions, once for Lucas Torriera and once for De Ligt --but both reject).
  12. Someone other than Juventus and Bayern won their respective leagues (Leipzig in 2018/19) and Inter in (2019/20 and 2020/21)
  13. I received £70M for 31 year old Aubamayeng from Real Madrid and £52M from Inter for 31 year old Ozil (having loaned him out the previous season) in summer 2020. Tried to do the same with Lacazette in 2021, but no takers, contract expires in 2022. Debating whether to re-up on hopefully lower terms or let him walk.
  14. I'm American and an MLS fan and I don't really understand it, to be honest. Well, I understand trades, because those are pretty standard fare in American sports. Your player(s)-for-player(s) swap, a la Sanchez for Mkhitaryan, some times with one of the teams adding more assets (like draft picks or younger, unproven players) to a deal. The draft is standard talent distribution, but MLS has the academy approach as well, so fewer and fewer impact players come via the draft.
