  1. Thanks so much for checking but you're right about how gamey that feels. Most of the fun comes from finding the right candidate and persuading them to join. I basically want a staff version of the custom database options you get when setting up the leagues at the start of a new game. But want doesn't necessarily get. 😁👍
  2. That's a fair point. Not enough staff to me means not enough to fill some pretty strict requirements. I only sign personalities that are high in professionalism, ambition and determination. I like the idea of a club culture that feeds into the players. I also use staff to increase the club's world knowledge. So I like to have a really diverse pool to choose from including every continent. Especially the nations like Egypt that have decent youth ratings. These requirements make the game fun for me but also make it tough to find enough staff to meet them and have the skill set req
  3. My dilemma is that I (obviously) want an active and competitive transfer market and realistic world football environment. The best way to achieve that seems to be by loading as many playable leagues as my PC can manage (not very many btw). However, I only intend to manage Liverpool. So I do not need other leagues to be playable. So, ideally, I would choose English top 4 leagues as playable and then every other country's top league as view-only (detail none). Then add to that the players from the top teams of each continent. But that doesn't add enough staff for me. However, I no
  4. https://www.cdkeys.com/pc/games/football-manager-2019-pc-steam-cd-key £12.99 bargain at that price Update - all working and totally fine - highly recommended
  5. In two simulated first seasons Klopp has been sacked 31/12/16 twice, replaced by Bielsa twice, who has signed one player only (Tobias Svendson) twice and brought in one member of staff (Claudio Bordon) twice. Both times Liverpool finished outside of the European places.
  6. Whilst I share every one of Weston's frustrations about the star-rating system, it might be worth mentioning that I perceive it to be very deliberately vague. Am I wrong in thinking that it is SI's best attempt to encode real-world uncertainty into the game. It feels/is gamey, but it works pretty much as intended. We are not really supposed to understand it, in much the same way as we have no truly precise understanding of human subjectivity and the mechanisms of opinion and judgement. The fact that, despite every real-world best guess, judgements are proven incorrect in the real wor
  7. Would you mind talking me through how you did that, step by step? I got as far as making Anfield extinct and then failed abysmally.
  8. Soooooo many thanks, you have just gifted back great chunks of game set-up time
  9. Hi Kubi, that's good to know. Is it possible to use a similar process to change the way Anfield looks in the game? I'm not a fan of the big gaps in the corners and the 1960s floodlights and, if nothing else, would like to change it back to the way it appeared in FM16. Just for the record, I've already reported it in the Liverpool data issues thread at the request of a couple of mods. Thanks, and sorry if this is too off-topic for this thread. (Delete if necessary)
  10. Very classy move Alari. Sorry about your bad day, I hope it helps in some small way to know you have made a lot of other people's days a little bit better with this post.
  11. You have just won my annual award for Top Dad of the Year.Your prize is a whole stackload of good vibes that I am sending you as we speak.
  12. If it's about diversity, then let's start here and ensure the game reflects it's user base. If it's about realism, then let's start here and ensure the game reflects a real match day. If those two things coincide then all the better. It's really not difficult.
  13. My guess is that anybody requesting the removal of wheelchair-using fans from the game would be viewed with even more incredulity than those suggesting their initial inclusion is somehow a bad idea. We are living in strange times.
  14. Nothing wrong with the game reflecting its diverse base, absolutely should be there in my opinion.
  15. I'd like to know this too, I have a similar load of FM16 filters that I'd rather not have to re-do.
  16. This hits the nail on the head for me and my issue. My dilemma is that I (obviously) want an active and competitive transfer market and realistic world football environment. The best way to achieve that seems to be by loading as many playable leagues as my PC can manage. However, I only intend to manage Liverpool. So I do not need other leagues to be playable. It also means that I choose to only load the top league of every other country in order to avoid bloating the game with players that will not be on my radar. So, ideally, I would choose English top 4 leagues as playable an
  17. Tutoring - no, it only works on hidden attributes and determination. Fining - yes, if the player agrees it is warranted and he accepts his fine. I don't know about the match rating question, possibly 6.5 and lower, certainly below 6. Don't know about the other questions, I'm afraid.
  18. Basically, Sports Scientists help to stop players getting the 'jaded' icon, so they do not need to be rested Data Analysts send you a detailed report on how your team plays Chief/Head Analyst and Scientist are just like the Chief/Head Scout, they just manage the scouts/analysts/scientists but don't perform any different function to them. The Chiefs/Heads are the ones who send you the inbox reports from their staff. None of the analysts or sports scientists need any specific attributes/skills beyond being an analyst or a sports scientist, they are all as good as each other. Just
  19. I empathise harree, I had the same experience, a weird few minutes clicking around for a search box that I couldn't see... then I clicked add condition
