  2. Hi @Cipster do you happen to have a save from before De Ligt requests the new deal that we can take a look at please? Details on how to provide a save to us can be found here:
  3. Thanks for the information guys and apologies for the issue. It is now under review. If anyone else has any examples of this please let us know the specific team and league in question, thanks.

    Sacked 3 times

    Hi @tefal7 can you open a thread in the bugs forum so we can get this looked into please? If you have a save from before you get sacked it would be great to take a look at it as well, thanks.

    Unrealistic Interactions With The Players

    Thanks @Cap'nRad interesting response. I think there's an important distinction to be made between the perception of "fringe player causing total mutiny" and "your treatment of a fringe player" causing issues. I often read posts such as "why would [big name player] care about my third choice left back asking to leave/wanting first team football? More often than not the big name player has issues with the way you've dealt with a scenario as opposed to the issue the lesser player has raised themselves. The idea being that if you treat a teammate badly then what's to say you wouldn't do the same to them. Again, issues that run contrary to that should be raised as bugs (eg, a LB complaining that a lesser LB should be given more first team football) Regarding your other paragraphs, obviously, we're striving towards giving users more tailored options that they'd like to see and very much encourage suggestions on how to improve these chats. We're always trying to improve these modules so stuff you've mentioned like asking players to improve in specific areas, whilst already in-game to an extent with preferred move training, tutoring and general training improvements all being things the user can challenge a player to do if they want first team football, would be great suggestions to raise so we can get them under review.

    Unrealistic Interactions With The Players

    Just a quick response to all this but the aim with Dynamics is to make these things easier to nip in the bud. You have to treat your players like human beings though and remember that them requesting to talk to you isn't necessarily an issue unless you deal with them poorly. There are more options than ever to talk players round and get them to drop their concerns and, with the new Hierarchy panels, the ability to request that other influential players in your squad to have a quiet word with the player as well. The other thing to be aware of is the overall affect of your dressing room atmosphere on the squad, it is well worth your time trying to cultivate a high Dressing Room Atmosphere score because this will decrease the regularity of player complaints, can improve the frequency at which your captain will successfully talk a player out of an issue and will generally create a more harmonious atmosphere, and in turn, can help results on the pitch. Try to think of your players as people, if a player is in great form, tell them, they will improve their relationship with you and there can only be benefits to having a group of players who respect and like you as a manager. The other, non-happiness interaction options can really help to build a positive relationship with players which will pay off should the player raise a concern about an issue. Obviously, any examples people have of players behaving in a factually incorrect way should be raised as bugs so we can evaluate them.
  7. Can you report this as a bug in the bugs forum please?
  8. This is a known issue and is under review, thanks

    Social Groups

    Aspects such as tutoring, asking players to welcome new signings and good playing partnerships (among other things) can increase the like/dislike levels between players which are then reflected in the Social Groups.

    Using a club for stepping stone

    Is this a league that allows minimum fee release clauses in general? If not could you report this in the bugs forum so we can take a look please?

    Using a club for stepping stone

    The 'Use the club as a stepping stone' pre-transfer promise works by adding in a minimum fee release clause to their contract which is locked in by the agent effectively making it an immediately actioned promise.
