  1. That question wasn't about football, but for your real life employer, because, let's be honest, you would pay out of your own pocket just for an opportunity to play for Barcelona, so that is only a fantasy!
  2. Are you saying that you won't switch your current employer if the other employer would offer you almost two times bigger salary then your current one?
  3. I really don't understand why you call him greedy? It's his job after all! Are you saying that you won't switch your current employer if the other employer would offer you almost two times bigger salary then your current one?
  4. Leicester City won Premier league last season, but that doesn't make them the most reputable club in England (they are in 7th place in database); Spartaks is similar case, in my opinion. Spartaks, won league last season and played in cup final, but was only 5th season before and 6th two seasons ago (and about this season - they have 11 decent players with almost no replacement for them - so let's see what will happen in second part of the season). While for example, Ventspils was 3rd last season, 3rd season before + in cup final and won league two season ago. Similar case with Jelgava - they won 3 cups in last 3 seasons and finished in 2nd, 4th and 3rd place in league + were the most successful Latvian team in UEFA competitions by reaching 3Q stage in Europa League. And Liepaja were in 4th, 1st and 4th place in last three seasons and in my opinion all of these clubs have had a more consistent performance in recent history! Plus, here are info for Latvian clubs of how many players they have under professional contracts and Spartaks here are at the bottom of the table alongside Metta/LU: Liepaja - 26 players RFS - 23 players (only team that has all his 1st team players under pro deals) Jelgava & Ventspils - 19 players Riga FC - 18 players Metta/LU & Spartaks - 15 players And, most importantly, my suggestions had that difference between most reputable club and 6th place were only 500 rep, which is amost nothing and that, in my opinion, represents reality, because all those six clubs are more or less even. Little update on this matter: Before this season here is how looked average of 21 Latvian journalist prognosis for upcoming season that were asked to participate (they were asked to rank all teams from 1st to 8th): 1. Liepaja - 2,2 2. Riga FC - 2,3 3. Jelgava - 3,1 4. Ventspils - 3,7 5. RFS - 4,2 6. Spartaks - 5,5 (best rank 3rd by one journalist) 7. Metta/LU - 7,1 8. Babite - 7,9 (source: http://synottipvirsliga.lv/news/tradicionalais-zurnalistu-prognozu-konkurss-domas-par-cempionu-dalas) It illustrates that it's not me that is biased in any way against Spartaks + in game pre-season adds are not determined by club reputation (and maybe player reputation) too, so if yes, then again it only shows that Spartaks can't be the club with most reputation in Latvia.
  5. HR Latvia Why Spartaks has the highest reputation from Latvian clubs? Yeah, it won league last season, but before that their highest place were 5th... RFS and Riga FC should be reputation wise on par with top 3 clubs, because they are signing high profile players (for Latvian league, Latvian inernationals) + they are, most likely, the two wealthiest clubs in Latvia at the moment and both should be considered professional clubs, just like Liepaja and Jelgava. Babite on the other hand should have much lower reputation, definitely, lower than Metta/LU, tho Metta/LU's reputation should be bumped to be the 7th club in Latvia reputation wise. Rezeknes FA isn't professional club - it's semi-pro, just like Skonto, tho Skonto don't play this season as far as I know and are on sale. 1625 Liepaja don't exist anymore. Overall I would put reputation ladder of Latvian top clubs as follow (reputation): 1. Ventspils (4000) 2. Liepaja (3900) 3. Jelgava (3800) 4. Riga FC (3700) 5. Spartaks (3600) 6. RFS (3500) Very small difference between these six clubs reputation wise. 7. Metta/LU (2500) And, i my opinion, the rest of the clubs should have no more than 2000 reputation, except Skonto, which is still the most recognizable club not only in Latvia, but abroad too! If you think that my suggested reputation ladder is good to adapt it to database, then I can make such ladder for lower division clubs too - let me know! Stadium Sporta Kompleks Arkadija have grass pitch. Metta/LU stadium is Hanzas vidusskolas laukums (must be created, seating capacity ~300; overall capacity ~1000; pitch type - synthetic (new type - soft)).
  6. EHM Wishlist thread

    Would it be possible to make "Minimum underaged players dressed" rule optional rather than a must or create variant of it if "must" rule is used for any playable league already? I guess that it was created for Canadian juniors leagues, but other leagues uses that rule too, but only as optional... Now if, for example, 2 out of 22 players should be underaged in a match squad and a team don't have such players, then the game creates grey/fake players to fill these spots/rule, but instead it should be, that if team don't have such players, then it's allowed to have only 20 (or 21 if they have only one such player) players in a match instead of 22 (20 + 2 grey/fake players). I believe from playable leagues KHL have such an "optional" rule...
  7. New Laptop/PC - Help Needed

    It should be ok, because requirements are Pentium IV 1,8ghz single core processor, but he asked about i5 dual core + multi threading 1,3ghz processor - so it should run, tho how well that is a different question...
  8. Thank you, I wasn't aware of this! Maybe there are commands that allow to configure number of teams, number of games, number of times each team play with each other and foreigners rules in playable leagues too?
  9. I was trying to make a custom league out of Danish league, but it looks like all 10 Danish league clubs are hard-coded into the game and can't be replaced with other teams, so I decided to rename them and change their "nation"... I was successful with it, till I tried to do it with "Rungsted Ishockey" team, I was able to rename it, but when I am trying to change this team's nation other than Denmark, then I got an error and Danish league becomes unplayable... Is it possible that "Rungsted Ishockey" team's hard-coded nationality would be removed just like other teams and I could assign it freely!?!
  10. As much as I want that Latvian league would be added to the game, but, in my opinion, it would be even better that there would be released an editor, just like for Football Manager, that anyone of us could add/make whatever league we want as playable in the game... I would say that this (editor) should be a priority over adding any new league to the game!
  11. I still occasionally play FM 2008...

    First of all, I just wanted to apologize for writting up, that you don't know what you are talking about - it was way too harsh from me... In self defense of myself I just wanted to point out that you based your opinion about GTA V and 1GB of VRAM by looking and minimum system requirements, if so then by that logic you should suggest that all FM players should get only 1GB of RAM, because that's a minimal requirements for FM or 2GB at best, because it's recommended for FM and for Windows (64bit) too and don't look for anything more... Anyway I apologize, on more time, for my harsh comment and I hope that there won't be any hard feeling between us!
