  1. I can't seem to find the option to recall any loan players even when they have teh recall clause in their contract. Does someone know where the recall option is hidden?
  2. Thanks Cougar I hear you. Was just a presentational comment really. When I look at attribute moves month on month, they move in 0.2s. This makes sense (20/0.2 = 100) so perhaps this is how the coding is done. I wondered why the 0.2 moves could not be amended to 1s with 1-100 scores. Would be cleaner presentation? I wondered why SI have kept to the original script and not amended the presentation. Nostalgia perhaps?
  3. A curiosity Have played the FM series since the original pre Premiership era (no real player names in the first edition - hard to believe now!). Has anyone ever considered why attributes have remained scores out of 20? CA/PA are out of 200. Everything could simply be multiplied by 5 to pay homage to the decimal system and make everyone's maths just a tiny bit easier Perhaps the 3 character requirement for a score of 100 is an issue?
  4. Couple of observations on ME (sorry if already raised) 1. Surprisingly few shots from distance. 5 seasons in and have only seen a handful max of goals from outside box and none from c. 25yds+ apart from 1-2 freaks (i.e. none intentional). [Playing English PL]. 2. Corner bug on LCB running to near post and scoring for fun. Had LCB with 20 goals in one season! 3. Crosses hitting the bar awful lot. 4. Not bug, but still frustrating - last highlight (say 20secs left), why when behind do players still insist on passing around the MF without pressing for the goal. V annoying! 5. Don't recall seeing a volley or a diving header. Jumping headers yes. In general think ME working well, but feel the areas above are a little out of sync with what we see in the modern game. Would be nice to see something inspirational in the ME on rare occasion!
  5. Think it''s been well documented that there are a number of bugs in relation to sending players on loan - lowly teams offering ridiculous amounts only for deals to collapse due to lack of funds etc. I get round this by negotiating the fee away. Another issue though seems to be the AI not playing the players they do receive even though I only accept ofers where the other party sees my man as "becoming a regular part of the first team" or more important. Worth noting. Other main issue I have is the scouting. Wait for the newgens to come out each season and filter for 5Star potential. All the newgens with this potential are shown even though I've never scouted them (they show blank potential but then when I scout them, sure enough 5stars appears). Scouting in the current FM13 is effectively redundant until this is rectified I think. Hopefully these can be rectified in the next patch.
  6. Anyone else noticing this issue? It's so easy to hoover up all the 5star newgens each year without any scouting input required!
  7. Thanks Smac I wasn't certain but now am. Just had the new youth intake (Season 1 in England on 13 March 2013. Went straight to search and filtered for 5Star. Sure enough a handful of 15yr olds from West Ham, Spurs etc are there with no scout report and on scouting, et voila 5 stars. I am playing as Man Utd so 5stars means pretty darn near world class potential. Note that all my youth intake were 1 star or below despite the exceptional youth recruitment network. Think this must be an issue. Will report in the bugs section also for good measure. Really spoils the scouting experience. Surprised that noone else has noticed this issue?
  8. May not be the same issue mentioned above, but I also am experiencing a significant number of crashes since the last patch. Playing on 2011 MacBook Pro. No specific error message. Simply that Steam "unexpectedly quit". Then FM freezes with the cursor hanging and the only option is to force quit. Having to save games before every fixture to avoid risk of lost progress.
  9. On scouting, if I filter by scouted potential ability, the list of players shown includes unscouted ones with that potential. When I then scout them, sure enough, they have that level of potential. It undermines the scouting system a bit.
  10. Thanks Stephen - no problems. Appreciate any responses to queries regardless of the lag!
  11. 3 points to raise - apols if these have ben mentioned before: 1. In player search, if I filter by potential ability it also highlights unscouted players with that potential. So it's easy to find the 5star prospects. 2. I don't think the tax bug is fixed (at least not in saved games - I was 5 seasons in using an English league at the time of the last update). I understand tax is based on the profit made in the previous season. In my current game I made £50m profit last season and am now paying over £4m a month in tax. That's nearly 100%! 3. The random in game new generated player - best prospects seem to nearly always have either "injury proneness" or "consistency" highlighted as their "specific weakness" Anyone having/spotted the same issues?

  13. Thanks maybe that helps. But £1.7m a month is around £20m in tax. I made a lot less than that in profit the previous season. Still feels like the rates are a bit off.
  14. Tax bug not fixed? Installed the patch and played for a season or so. Tax paid has come down but still at VERY high levels (last month made a loss of £4m and paid tax of £1.7m??). Anyone else noticing this?
  15. Fair point - but I find that scouting uncovers the top talent irrespective of the value. Thus you can still sign up all the top talent in the world! You often have to pay 20x the "value", but if the value is 100k then 2m seems like a bargain for a future Messi? Apologies - meant to reply with quote before
