patch 11.3 it`s a bad joke from SI :

- passing is awful , all passing go on the back of the player , the player has to turn for the ball , no matter if you play direct or short pass
- the players are crossing like they didn`t eat for the last week ,no power in crosses, this patch can`t make the difference between drill and float
- marking players is from another world ... man or zonal , it doesn`t matter - it`s a joke
- pace and acceleration doesn`t matter if it`s under 15-16 , they`re running like they`re 80yo

and many many more

[quote name='Inertia1907']I have some problems with contract negotiations.

I'm managing Wolfsburg and i've already had 2.2 m€ p/a budget wage.

But when i try to offer a contract to any player i can offer him maximum 650 k€ p/a which a squad role of a key player.

What's the problem about this???[/QUOTE]

How much money do you have left remaining from your budget?

Does anyone else find the patch freezes when updating about 170 or so, then jumps to the end and says it's fully installed? It doesn't appear to have affected the update, and previous ones have behaved the same. I just want to know if people experience the same on a regular basis.

Do you have any players joining the club in the future? If so their future wage has already been calculated.
Also the chairman can limit the maximum amount you spend per player so not to wreck the clubs wage structure

Has anybody else had the problem that when you watch the game in 3D view, the game freezes for 10-15 seconds but the players legs keep on moving without actually going anywhere? then just as sudden as the action stops, it will start again, almost as if it was thinking what to do next?

never had a problem with previous patches.

Yes not every game but i have had it a couple of times. Presumably somthing to do with the processing? Overall has very little effect just rather wierd watching them run at a standstill. :)

I see.
And yes the club had arranged a future transfer before me but i don't know how much they offer to him and like you said chairman would be suspicious about this case.
Anyway thanks for the help and your efforts.

Only got 3 problems with 11.3

Staff Contract negotiations are extremely hard to negotiate
lots of bookings and red cards, With high Discipline staff and Stand off more and more cautious tackling
Injury's - was bad before the update, is worse now

Yes, the new patch will apply the fixes to your current save game, although you may have to continue to the next transfer window for the changes to take full effect

This sometimes happens to me (even before the first patch).

It is most likely because your computer is dealing with something else for a few seconds or the game is simply loading.

***This I do not believe - what does many ,many more mean?

My responses have been marked with ***

Also since the ME has been tweaked this would impact on your performance. Whilst it does not cover some of your points I have not experienced what you have therefore cannot agree that the patch is awful.

Maybe if you could post/upload a game that would help.

My first match with the new ME, against Arsenal away: 0-0, zero clear cut chances for either team, no one-on-ones. Too early to make any proper judgements of course, but this kind of statline was basically not even possible in 11.2. The defenders seem concious about staying between the man and the goal, tackling seems to work. I'm really optimistic about this patch right now.

[quote name='ibbyh19']Why cant i select "sunday league Footballer" as my experience ?[/QUOTE]

When you started a new game how far down did you go re the leagues. That has a effect on how low your reputation can go as far as I recall! If you select down to Blue North etc then you can start as a sunday league footballer unless things have changed or I missed something.

I've had no troubles selling players in neither 11.2 nor in 11.3. I've sold players up to 6 times their value.
Make sure the player is Important or key. Set the value to 6 times his value. There must still be a lot of interested clubs. Then offer the player for the set value. If you're lucky a club or two might bid what you want for the player.
Most often when i sell a player for 5-6 times his value I'm not offering him out. Just set his value high and at some point a needy club with lots of money step in and bid.
I've found out this work because I was tired of clubs constantly bidding low for my very good, but low valued players. I'm managing a club in the Danish Superleague (this season I've sold players for close to 50M euro). So I reckon this won't work if you try to sell a Messi kind of player. But maybe you can get two times his value.

usually a bottleneck issue, as the game feeds the computer with infomation, and 3d graphics it meets a point where the PC plays catch up. most probaly RAM, maybe CPU.

has happened with me on games where I have loaded over 100,000 players and ran about 30+ leagues from 10+ nations.

No more set-pieces reset bug, more interest for my players (I got Major Interest from 5+ clubs for two of my lesser players right after i placed them on the transfer list, without offering to clubs which i usualy had to do previously to get interest for that kindof players)

I approve so far.

One question though: Can you pick whatever feeder club you want (Without the board compiling a list for you) after this patch like you could in previous versions?

My confidence has been untouchable this season (Currently on my 6th)

Yet when i asked for a feeder club and said i wanted to get involved in choosing one, they came back to me with a list, just the same as earlier in my career when i hadnt been manager long enough to choose that option.

I've played two matches with the new patch and I'm really liking the ME. There are still a few problems but overall there's a big improvement. I like the fact that we're no longer retreating to the 18 yard line before we start to defend :thup: Defending is much improved as is closing down; I scored from a corner that wasn't at the far post and I've also had lots of realistic goalmouth action with clearances off the line, last ditch tackles, etc as a result of corners :thup:

I've noticed one instance of a defender turning his back inexplicably, a couple of times where the CM has failed to pick the ball up in midfield because it "got stuck", I'm still not happy with the defending from throw-ins :( and I've also noticed a few occasions where the ball has been "run out of play" instead of being crossed/run checked/etc

Just about to embark on what I hope is an unbroken 10 match period to my next save point :D

This patch is fine. There's a few people complaining but when you read the official responses 90%+ are remedied and the others are mainly user errors or even some folk not quite grasping all the changes.

So overall it's a big thumbs up with very little to complain about, in my opinion

Enjoy :)
