  1. I just get the game yesterday so haven't had much time playing it, and I know in the past Contract renewals done by staff isn't favorable since they tend to give out very unpredictable results (and I think I read somewhere that it also depends on the stats of the staff in charge, but it'd still be better if we handle it ourselves) Wondering if that changed in this season's game, or if it will ever change in the future. Something akin to 95% efficiency when resigning players done by staff (depend on the staff's skill of course) would be great (that means players that want to do it manually can do a 5% further savings, which is a lot for big clubs). I am getting sick and tired of trying to resign individual players, going through rounds of contract negotiations just for the player to be upset because it feels the negotiation goes nowhere. I simply don't have the time to deal with that kind of crap anymore, and I can't be the only one
  2. Update: Ah I forgot I archived the receipt lol xD, found the activation code on oct 18. too so it's all good now, thanks
  3. A while back there was a promotion started by... Neil Brock I think? where you get discount for early purchase of FM 2013 from a UK online vendor and on release day they send us the unlock code that we can use on steam, well I totally forgot about it and just checked my email, the steam release date was Nov. 1 so checked the dates from oct. 30-nov.7 just in case and there's no such e-mail, either I already accidentally deleted it or it goes straight to my spam box which cleaned regularly . Could someone please give me the online store's address so I can contact them xD Ty
  4. Wardog: They still have current players in the Scotland team but they're in sub role. SCIAG: Reading's taken over by a tycoon (isn't this true IRL too?... I thought I read that somewhere) so they have some of the highest waged player in the premier league. Unfortunately for them they kept picking up bad managers , their team talent wise should've been in European competition but their highest finish was 10th I think even after all these years signing good players. B. Moore, as in T. Moore the striker's brother?
  5. With my age that instant result mode look very appealing...
  6. But they were also missing their best player, Charlie McGinlay's DM partner, Richard Henry If both player had been healthy with both of them a really good defensive player/deep playmaker, Scotland would've really excelled at counter-attacking game which is probably why they get all the way to the final
  7. All right so here's the Scotland team Not sure what to call this formation, is it 4-2-3-1? They used this for the whole tournament which I guess emphasis on counterattacking game Striker AML AMC
  8. Ty for the kind words . I'll post SS of Scotland team after I get back from work tonight. It is for sure a surprise though to see an all British final. (Wonder if anyone ever had a semis of all British though O.O that would be crazy). Messi: Wow that's some accomplishment taking out mexico, brazil, italy and argentina in knock out rounds!
  9. By the end of the quarter finals though I was pretty much can taste the victory... with Ghana, Ivory Coast, and Scotland left the tournament was mine to lose. Scotland won on penalties over Ivory Coast, while I won comfortably over Ghana Ivory Coast got third spot by a surprising lopsided victory The game against Scotland wasn't as easy as I thought it would be. England scored first early but Scotland tie it up before halftime and to make things worse they were actually the better team in the first half. Around 60 minute Jonjo Shelvey received a second yellow and my heart goes... thought I was going to blow it with the score still 1-1. Fortunately sometimes later Scotland scored an own goal, and a bit later England got the third goal to make it 3-1. At dying minutes Scotland got their 2nd goal from set piece, fortunately for me it was too late for them to get the tying goal.... whew.... Got the World Cup in my pocket though I'm not sure it was well earned
  10. Finally after 6 years of taking over England national team and got bounced out of 2017 Conf. Cup, 2018 WC, and 2020 EC, England finally won the world cup in 2020! The road to get win it all though was surprisingly easy so I can't brag of having win it the hard way xD. All the big team suffer shocking losses and I end up having to go against one good team along the way. Here's the break down of the tournament! There's no real surprise in group A through D. At this point Ghana is a very strong team overall so seeing them ahead of Holland isn't surprising. Turkey is one of the top 5 team in the world thanks to the super regens that they have been having. In group E Italy bow out of the tournament which is a real shocker since they could have easily top the group. My 2 world class defenders are on that team and they should've done much better than tying all three games. Group F's Spain was also a shocker as they have been in the top 3 all this time in the game, no idea how australia can place ahead of them... but good for me. No surprises on group G and H. In second round, Scotland beating Holland 2-0 is a surprise, I know holland lost their best striker (which happen to be my club's best striker) in injury in group play but they should've still beat Scotland. Mexico beating Turkey is a huge upset as Turkey have the personnel to go to at least semis if not win it all. France beating Argentina can only be good for me with 2 big teams beating each other In the Quarter finals, Ghana surprisingly beat Brazil (although I think by this time Brazil had lost quite a few players to injury) , ditto with Ivory Coast beating France. Portugal have some very good attacking players and I was antsy on going against them but to my surprise their defenders buckle under pressure fast and hard. (continuing on next post due to image posting limitation)
  11. Since I don't see a thread along this line, I thought I start one My latest signing that I'm hopeful for: Why: Because it looks like I finally find someone that can be at least a regular player in the team in the future, all my 3 signings in the past 2 years had been a dud, at best they'll be a back-up player, most likely will get sold when their contract's running out. Got him from RM for record signing 10.75mil, rated as 1.5 stars currently with potential of 3 stars although it was 3.5 stars when I purchase him a couple of months ago... so I'm kind of wary xD (the best players get only 3.5 stars for whatever reason) I'm thinking Quickness will be my priority training for him, and if he can reach at least 13/14 pace/acceleration then he'll be a serviceable DLP-S. Marking/tackling will be second order of business, and then hopefully his anticipation/concentration can reach at least 15. Will also train him as a CD so he'll be more versatile. Share your latest signing that you're hopeful for here
  12. Looking very good, I especially like the ball movements...
