    Out of those in your list



    Here's how they currently rank in processor (most important for FM):




    You can see the Ryzen 5 4600H is miles ahead - in it's base clock speed (3000) - and also in cores/threads (6/12)


    That's the one I'd go for.

    Thankyou so much for your help

  2. Hi. Appreciate any help/advice you can offer me as my computer knowledge is not very good. Once i spent a lot of money on a laptop that was worse than my previous one, hence i wanted some advice. 

    My current laptop is this which is giving up the ghost HP 15-da0000na https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07KFML9YJ/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    I have a budget of approx £6-700 and am looking to replace it with an improved version (Paid £550 for that over two years ago, if i could find something a little better for the same price that would be ideal. 

    Generally i use the laptop for FM, maybe a bit of civ and watching movies. A minimum of a 15" screen is required for me. As well as running FM in 3D

    I have found these three so far, would you be able to confirm that they are better than my current laptop for running FM 






    Thanks in advance for any advice you can offer, I really appreciate it

    Let's see, this is the screenshot from the intake.


    And here is his profile when I got him.


    I chucked him straight into the first team, but I also gave him a lot of rest so he didn't play the big games, or whenever his heart wasn't full. Other than that he played a lot.

    wow that truly is a golden generation. The most i've ever had at intake was 2 stars, and that was a one off

    There were some changes this year to the impact position has on the role scoring to better reflect how those players perform directly in the match engine. Generally the difference between a 'natural' and 'accomplished' player in the match engine is very negligible, at which point having the right attributes to play a role in that position is far more important. If your scout/coach is saying your player is best used in a non-natural position, it'll be because their attributes are best suited for one of the roles in that position.


    Thankyou for the response, I will need to rethink how i pick national squads. 

  5. Hi All, 

    Why in this game (FM21) is the best position (be it recommended by a scout or a coach) so often so different from the natural position, whereas historically (Fm21 and previous 99% of the time it was the same). I'm noticing in particular a very large amount of players who's best position is AML, when there natural position is mc ml mr AMC AMR or ST


    Additionally in the player search is there a way to get it to show the players natural position?

    Sure, but this one doesn't make sense and doubt it will be anything like this IRL. Plus after 5-6 years many teams will be full of League One/Two level players and newgens if this is kept.

    but this is the current most likely scenario being discussed by the FA, the premier league are against it, but it looks like the FA will push it through

    There is not currently. Could you raise this here for me please - https://community.sigames.com/forum/803-user-interface/ - something worth investigating. Are the differences in "fullness" of the hearts too subtle to be useful to you?

    Hi, its fine, its cause I was looking at a screen of excellent and peak which don't have a fullness difference, as soon as it drops to good whilst i still cant see a colour difference the fullness difference is perfectly clear.

    The different icons should have a different level of fill - orange icon should be ~half full for example if it's not that clear then worth raising the issue in the bugs forum to see if they can be improved.

    Ah might be cause mine are currently all 'excellent' or 'peak' which are both full fill (took me a long time to see they were all that, i'll check again after some have dropped

    The change to Condition has been made to better align with the information real life managers have available to them and to better communicate what this information is actually telling you.

    In the match the difference between 91% and 92% is so arbitrarily small that it makes no significant difference and the AI acts as such. However, we have been seeing a number of people taking an unnecessary and even detrimental approach to these numbers, refusing to play players at 86% Condition for example. This is a good example of the misinformation that we would like to combat both inside and outside of the game.

    For us, making the change to a system that directly tells you what you need to know and when you need to act is an improvement on the previous version. We acknowledge that for many here it will feel like less information but I would implore you to consider how you arrived at making a decision between "fit" and "not fit" under the old system and whether you actually could do that reliably. This is the key advantage of the new system, it immediately highlights this information.

    It is also worth noting that the expanded tooltip, seen when hovering over the Condition icon, surfaces all of the factors that contribute to that Condition rating, including a brand new 'Fatigue' comment. This can be useful if you need a little more information to help you make your decision

    is there anyway to turn the colours into words or numbers on the selection screen (without hovering over it) being colourblind i cannot tell the difference in the chosen colours by looking at it, it seems all my players are the same condition, till i over over each one individually for the words

  10. Does the ingame world rankings use the same ELO method as the actual Fifa world rankings, one of the older method, or just some random in game method?


    I only ask because after having some good results at the Pacific Games with Tonga I have seen no change in position despite the fact these games should have an importance factor of 35, also after multiple good friendly results i do not se much of a rise despite their importance factor of 10 meaning multiple should contribute.  I'm not expecting massive jumps, but i shouldnt still be down in 200th

    Do you think it's fair sacking? I'm leading the league. They finished 9th on the previous season, and they were asking me for a CL spot. I think I was giving them more than what they were asking for. I havent bought enough german players because they weren't good enough for us, or costed a fortune. Also, the "sign german players" is preferable, but not demanded, not top on list of the club culture.

    i do, they ask you to do something, you willingly chose to disobey them, if i was your boss i would sack you

  12. they asked you to sign German players so why wouldn't you just sign german players? In real life they would have signed them for you and blocked your transfers, but this is the games best equivalent. If in real life your boss told you to do something and you did the opposite, they would fire you, whether or not you thought it was fair.




    Simple solution, next time the board tell you to do something and you sign a contract telling you to do it, just do it. Will make your life much easier in the long run
