I don't think loading a league that starts in February/March and using that start date for your game is a solution since all leagues in Europe would have started in July/August'09 as per usual, but, with the January'10 transferred players already in their new clubs, i.e. Sol Campbell would be at Arsenal from the start of the season.Maybe some of you guys didn't quite understand what I meant. I wasn't looking for advice or suggestions. I KNOW I can start a Patch 10.3 save using either the default DB, the DB2 or the DB3. I definitely couldn't do without DB2 (at least) because that fixed a serious bug that prevented the South African Leagues from loading in 2010/11 season.
I basically wanted to know how many of you FM'ers start new saves, now or in the past, using the January transfers updated database, eventhough the new game would not be realistic in terms of correct squads at the start of the season, and if that bothers you or not. And if not, why not?
