  1. Some of us are still lurking around. Would be good to get the quality of the threads back up to where they were before. As Ty said some of us stopped posting, in part down to life and in part just losing passion for the game. Seems like a revival of the forums could happen, but not without hard work.
  2. Yeah man I remember you too. Was it the utd thread? I was looking for the team thread of who`s doing what thread this year and couldn't find it. Forum seems dead apart from the technical and tactical pages.
  3. Thanks for the prompt response. I`m grateful for the explanation on how certain stats would cause more of an impact than others, and equally if not more so, grateful for the researcher amending the stats in question. It`s nice to see that level of respect between colleagues that you have outwardly displayed. As I said you guys do a bang up job, and its very refreshing to see public input taken on to such a degree. Cannot wait to play the full product.
  4. I had a wee scout back through the thread and there were 3 points raised regarding Ryan Christies work rate and stamina, and 6 points raised (including 1 celtic fan) for Morelos's Composure. That is a small data sample yet only one player has seen a re-tweak. To say that you "shouldn't worry about how those attributes will affect their performance" is akin to saying it is ok for some data to be wrong. I appreciate I am probably nit picking here, but we are supposed to build upon realism each year the game is out, or at least that's how it is marketed. If it is not possible
  5. Hi Stuart, Great response and accurately highlights how balancing works. In terms of Ryan Christie who has been mentioned a few times in the thread, perhaps a bit of reallocating of stats to fit the CA points is fair to better reflect his work rate and stamina. If crossing is dropped to 9 and the 2 point shift in to stamina, and heading is reduced to 4 as well as leadership being reduced to 7, the other 2 points could be redistributed in to work rate. This would be a fairer attribute spread for him. What is Callum McGregor`s CA? Is it higher than Arfields? ie he
  6. Also to touch on another Celtic player who needs just a single stat to be improved to more accurately reflect his ability. Ryan Christies work rate is exceptional, he deserves more than a 12 by some distance - Perhaps 15 would accurately reflect the work he does for the team when he doesn't have the ball. 15 is maybe strong, but he does do a hell of a lot off the ball and if anyone has been watching Celtic games then they know its for a full 90 minutes.
  7. Callum McGregor`s stats need just a little tweaking to better reflect the player he is. His balance and stamina should be at least 13 if not 14, he has a very quick turn of feet so his agility could be a 12 or 13 and his off the ball movement is phenomenal. He is always in a position to receive a pass from a team mate to then lay off another player and/or look for the one two. So his off the ball could also potentially benefit from a 1 or 2 point shift His form for the last 3 season shows this consistently, and he just needs a small tweak to better reflect his ability in game.

  10. Hi guys, I would like to discuss the idea of being able to address a player in your squad about the lack of match fitness when they come to you about lack of first team football, and broken promises because of said lack of fitness. I propose either a conversation option to explain to the player that they did not get a consistent run in the team due to dropping beneath 90% match fitness, which in turn should mitigate most players except those with stubborn traits. Otherwise, perhaps the personality trait itself needs to tweaked so they are aware of their match fitness and allow t
  11. I cant believe i`m saying this, but Bolton Wanderers have only gone and won the championship on the last day. I`ve never felt nerves like that on FM in a very long time. Finished the championship on 92 points, level with wolves but had a better head to head (they lost their last 3 games, one of those to us). 106 goals scored but 61 conceeded. Had so many first team players injured in the run up to that final match, and then one of my backups injured during the match, incredible tension and utter Euphoria when the final whistle went. I tweaked the tactic to play out from th
  12. Sounds silly but are the players meant to be lobbing the ball forward long ball style constantly? Also the midfielders seem to be non existent at trying to win the ball even though one is a bbm and one is a bwm. I`m wondering whether its just the quality in my team that`s the issue, as I seem to be getting wobbly towards the end of the season. Still vying for first place though, just wondering if i need to make any tweaks?
