  2. Another thing that makes no sense. See the reasoning the player gave as to why he didn't choose us? HE WAS THE ONE THAT SAID HE NEEDED A PLAYER/HOYD CONTRACT.
  3. The new way scouting system works makes no sense at lower level. I am playing a 4th tier team in Portugal. I want to scout players from the youth team of another team in the same city that my team is from - but since it's somehow outside my "scouting range", I can't afford to do it. The teams play in the same stadium, are you telling me my scout can't afford to go to a couple of under 19 games that are free?
  4. Currently the team that is the direct successor to this does not have a football team since 2006, even though they're still active in other sports, in game they'll start in the 5th tier, 1.Kreisklasse Cottbus.
  5. On my side, work in the East German system continues, currently doing Brandenburg, which means that BSG Lokomotive Reichsbahn-Ausbesserungs-Werk Hermann Matern Cottbus is finally in the mod.
  6. In the meantime, having finished the first of two rounds of creating teams for East Germany for all of Mecklenburg Vorpommern, it's time for Brandenburg, and the usual nice east german names have already showed up: Sportgemeinschaft Tiefbau-Union Frankfurt (Oder) Betriebsteil Nord,
  7. This is East Germany with 2.5 out of 14 regions done, and we're talking only of competitions, cities, teams and stadiums.
  8. While @Wolf_pd looks into the Hungarian file which is one small issue in the advanced rules away from being ready, I am working on East Germany. Hungary will have 3 levels of football. The top tier you see there, a second division divided into two leagues, and a third division divided into 8 IIRC; there's also two cups, a normal national cup, and played i nthe same day but before the main game, a "small cup" where the two amateur teams who went the futhest in the cup play eachother. For East Germany, I have Berlin, Rostock and Schwerin filled up to the 5th/6th tier; currently working on Neubrandenburg. Depending on what I find on all the regions, the country will have 4 to 6 tiers, where in some regions 5th and 6th tier will be education guesses in some regions (because at this level usually each Kreis had their own league)
  9. Oh they are - just in the third tier, and it's one of the higher reputation ones, so it's likely to get promoted too.
  10. And I am currently working on Hungary, which had a unique point system; 3 points for a win; then every draw has a penalty shootout at the end, the winner gets 2 points, the loser gets 1. Best Part, the game can accommodate for that:
  11. ALBANIA is pretty much done: Top 2 divisions are playable, with an inactive third tier (there were just 3 levels IRL at the time too). Top division splits into a championship and a relegation group after two rounds, with teams playing within their groups again (Like the classic Scotland system); the second tier does the same and then the winner of each group plays each other for the title of second tier champion. There is also a cup that begins with a group stage. And that's it, very simple league system.
  12. I will ask the same for East Germany. i have full info for the top 3 levels, and full info full stop for Berlin, Schwerin and Rostock at least, and enough info to at least make believable 4th tiers for Cottbus, and Suhl. I also have info on how many Bezirksklasses there were for Karl Marx Stadt, Halle, and Dresden, but no info on how they were geographically split, and no info whatsoever on the others. Any help is welcome, I'd love to have 4 levels playable. * 4th level info for Dresden found.
  13. Oberliga Hamburg 2023/24 End of March Update Well, we no longer depend on ourselves to win the league and fight for promotion, and what sucks most is that it was in our hands - twice! We had a perfect February, and also a perfect first half of March, all while Dassendorf started slipping, maybe accusing the pressure: drew against HEBC and Victoria in February, and then lost against Niendorf at the beginning of March. By this point we were just one point apart. The the 24th came along, and they cannot score against Tornesch; and we are not capitalising it at all as we are losing 2-0 against Niendorf. We managed to bring it back to 2-1 by the end of the first half, and then back to 2-2 in the 55th minute. The same minute Tornesch scores; and for 25 minutes we were equal on points - only for Dassendorf to score in the 88th minute. Then we played our main competition, and in a very level but not very good quality game, the points were again split. This means that while we still have a good chance, we are now dependent on another Dassendorf slip to win the league. Verbandspokal Hamburg We did play Dassendorf another time during this period, right in the middle of their February draws, and this time we played a lot better than them. A lot more incisive in front of goal, creating the best opportunities and largely controlling the game - their game came from, you guessed it, Harnik, who currently sits on 47 goals in 32 games on all competitions, 40 goals in the league.
  14. Oberliga Hamburg 2023/24 Winter Transfer Season So we lost Sejdida. I would have loved to have him loaned back for the season like @Deisler26but circumstances did not allow it. Football at this low a level is synonymous with short term contracts, and in this case the contract ended at the end of the season; with 3.Liga clubs interested in him, he simply did not want to renew. In the end, Aue didn't even contact us, they went straight to the player with a contract offer: Fringe Player and more than double the 500€ per week we were paying him. We were the ones that then offered him out - since he was going at the end of the season anyway, I'd rather have his wages available to go for other players - as I mentioned before, he was one of our top earners and I could bring in multiple players with that money back. The other player leaving was Jonatan Rindom, and this one was all my fault - despite the fact that he was playing regularly, and he was playing well, I signed him while I was still figuring out how we were going to play, and I promised I'd play him as an MC... and then settled for a main formation that did not use any MCs. Hillerød Fodbold were not amused. And so we did: Tom Kankowski, on loan from St. Pauli is our Sejdida replacement. Composure and Antecipation are not as good, but other than that he's a capable replacement for the next 6 months. Korbinian Müller is an experienced Goalkeeper at 33 years old, with a long career in the 3. Liga with Unterhaching and Stuttgarter Kickers, and had last played for St. Pauli II back in 2020,is our new first choice keeper. Gil-Linnart Walther, that came from the youth team of Wolfsburg, and is the player I have higher hopes for, and I feel like he could be here for a few years.
  15. Oberliga Hamburg 2023/24 Winter Break Two more stumbles and we are now 8 points behind Dassendorf. At least this time we stumbled against the other teams fighting for promotion, so theoretical stronger teams (unlike HEBC in the previous month). Other than those games, where the results were fair this time - the game against Niendorf was very close, and while we ended the game against Dassendorf ended up with us having a higher xG, we ended with exactly the same possession and shots, so this time the luck of the game went their way. All the other games were, to be honest, a cakewalk; at this level there is a big gap between the top and bottom teams of the league. Another chance was that our original first choice striker, Rasmus Tobinski, who had 5 goals in 10 games got a calf strain and was out for 5 weeks, and lost his spot, because his replacement, Lenny Glissmann, is currently on 11 goals from 9 games, a much better output. I need to highlight Martin Harnik's output too, because half of Dassendorf's success comes from the fact that in the first 19 games of the season he has scored 30 goals and assisted on a further 5, with his striker partner Tom Bertelsmann scoring a further 15 goals. It's not impossible to fight back and catch up, but it's starting to be an uphill battle. Verbandspokal Hamburg In the local cup, we are experiencing a different level of success. Firstly, an easy 2-0 win away against a team two divisions below us gave us what I believe was a "poisoned gift" in a draw against Eimsbüttel, who play in the league above us. That is, until I looked further on them in preparation for the game; they are 17th in the league, second to last with just 12 points and a goal difference of -28... I thought we might have a shot and ended up not even changing our gameplan against them. And it's a good thing I didn't - we controlled the game and easily neutralised them: we had 9 shots against their 6, but 1.8 xG against their 0.2. And what did the draw gift us this time? ... Dassendorf. In other news, we're likely to lose our Playmaker in the winter transfer season; Bujar Sejdida is seeing insterest from Ingolstadt, 1860 München and Erzgebirge Aue, with the latter already showing an active interest on him. To be honest, I don't think that's the right thing for his career: he's a great player at this level, and likely even a good player for the level above us; but at the 3.Liga level he'll be a fringe player at best and will likely just end up as a II Team player, back at this level or lower. Not that I mind! At this level, almost no player is irreplaceable (unless you have a Martin Harnik), and he will free up 10% of our wage budget - at the moment I simply cannot offer a contract to any player that wants wages as we're slightly above our budget, and this will free up enough space to get at least a couple of better options in the same transfer window. So yeah, basically my plans for this break is to ship him off, find a replacement for him, and possibly a better option for GK, DR, DL BWM, and/or Wingers - any one of those would be good.
