  1. Yeah .. I could. But even simple suggestions I have made several times over the years, never get into the game. F.x. something as simple as a "Select All" when picking countries to load leagues from, at the start of a new game, or the possibility to save that selection. I have suggested that for years. Still can't do it. So I have no real hopes for anything of the sort.
  2. It woud be nice if I could pin pages in my sidebar as I wished. I might not want to be "involved" in my youth teams, but I might also want direct access to the squads to see how things are going, without having to go through the Dev. Center every time. There might also be other pages I would want to access directly, so pinning them to the sidebar would be great.
  3. I wonder how Stadia will handle storage per user. How many save games can I have at any time? ... How will I be able to import/export various views and lists in the game etc.? .. if I don't have local storage, then where is it saved? Also the fact that I can't mod the game is a big no no for me. I was considering Stadia as a "side-system" at home. To compliment my PC-gaming. It could be for strategy games or FM games, where I need lots of power, but lag is less of an issue. Also so I could play it on any device would be nice. I think I will be waiting until 2020 and see how the system works and what kind of modding can be implemented in Stadia.
  4. I doubt this would happen organically, as I doubt many managers will start learning a new language, unless they move to said country. Usually it would be the players learning the languages. So in the example above (assuming you are managing in Canada) the brazillian players are more likely to pick up english and /or french, than you are picking up Portugese, without a language course.
  5. Makes little sense from my perspective. Just because I am friends with a guy in my local team, who likes to fire off rifling shots from far out (because he has a powerful shot), doesn't mean that it would be something I would consider appropriate for me, who does not shoot very hard.
  6. I play in the VNS with Bath City, and have both. I don't really have any players in the teams, except the Grey army. But it is a good place to give second string players some match practice, as well as players getting back from injuries. The AssMan makes sure there are friendlies pretty often. So I can keep my whole squad at high match sharpness levels. As you move up the league system (hopefully), you can start using them for actual development of young players.
  7. I feel overwhelmed too. Not only by the different training types, but also trying to keep players from becoming unhappy about it within weeks of starting the game. I am in start of September and already I have 11 unhappy players who each wants either more or less of certain training types. But playing as a part time club, I have a grand total of 4 training sessions on a good week (usually I only have 2). So trying to keep every player happy seems impossible. Not if I want to decide anything, except just managing the focus for each player as well as the few training passes I have, to fit their moods and whims. I don't really feel that this part of the game is balanced for part time clubs.
  8. And here we go two days later ....tons of players now want more Quickness training. So on 25/8, the above players are happy, after three training passes with Quickness over three weeks. Monday (27/8) they are now unhappy despite that there were no passes in-between the two dates. All the ones who were unhappy about too much Quickness training two days ago, are now unhappy because they want more strength training. This feels a bit like whack-a-mole. Fix one problem and another pops up.
  9. Ok, so I am a little frustrated with my players, and I am unsure of whether my lack of understanding of new changes is affecting my players too much. They seem to quietly complain constantly about especially training as well as squad composition. So I start a game as Bath City (as always). The club is part time, so I get between 1 and 2 training passes per week, depending on how many games I have. So I am quite limited in my ability to make everyone happy with training. It is now end of August, and I already have 11 players unhappy about training, and 15 dissatisfied with management. Training: The training started when I was told a handful of players were unhappy with lack of Quickness training. So not knowing how much would be enough, I put in three Quickness passes in the coming 3 weeks. Now 5 other players are unhappy because we have too much quickness training. The rest are a mix of wanting more of various training types. So in order to keep the squad happy, I seem to have to constantly changing my training around to fit their wishes instead of what want to focus on. Any way to better handle this for part time players? ... since I have so few training days, it seems like all I can do is to schedule it to fit the squad's wishes. Management displeasure: Currently 15 players are pre-concerned (what does that mean?) about lack of depth in midfield. Looking at my team report, my first team squad has 8 players to cover my three MC/DM places. 6 of which can also play the DM position. I would think that was enough? I have 7 players capable of playing AM/L and 5 for AM/R. So what is all the concern about? On the Team Report, the AM/R position number is yellow, so maybe that is what they are concerned about? ... but how many AM/Rs do they think my lower league team needs? While they do voice their concern from time to time, it doesn't seem to have escalated yet, but that is probably helped by a position at the top of the table. But how do you properly manage this? ... as I assume it won't go away later on in the season. I feel maybe this needs to get tweaked, at least for part time and amateur teams, where there is little wiggle-room to change up the training to deal with this. Also, it would be nice that if a player has more than one concern regarding training amount and type, that they both get shown. I have seen a player wanting more Quickness training, and when I gave him focus on that, it disappeared from the list, but then it was a concern regarding more tactical defending training. If all this is working as designed, any advice would be appreciated
  10. On the player profile, it shows this role, but it is not available for DMs on the Tactics screen. Was it removed, and just not completely removed, or am I missing something?
  11. I'm a simple man with simple wishes ... just give me Select All buttons on this screen (I assume that it will look the same on the full game). Going through this process once you have added 50 more countries to the game is a nightmare, always have been. And this would be at least the 3rd or 4th time I have raised this issue (in the appropriate forum). Give us a Select All button for both countries and leagues.
  12. I would LOVE to see two major improvements this year: - Back passes to keeper that goes to corner (happens at least once per match). - Keeper picking up a ball, then sliding over the back line for a corner (happens at least once every other match). There ... fix that and FM19 will be worth it ;) ... they must be big problems to fix as they have been there since the introduction of the 3D engine.
  13. Ah ok .. I thouhgt it had an effect. Still don't get why it is in the UI, if it has no effect for the human managers.
