[Suggestion] Winter update changes

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

1. Winter Transfers should be set up as future transfers at the start of the season. It's more realistic and will avoid situations where players appear to have moved twice in the same transfer window (e.g. Piatek at Genoa/Milan).

2. For the sake of those who prefer to start midseason after the winter update (by loading a league like China), real results should be included in the update instead of relying on third party mods. These third party mods are useless because team & player stats are not generated/simulated so they ruin players career stats. Real player appearance and goal stats could be included as well if possible, alternatively they could be simulated.

3. This is more of a bug. When you takeover midseason, player injuries mess the stats up e.g. if you take over Tottenham in February, you'll notice that Kane and Dele Alli (who both get injured in January IRL) are shown to have played 0 games (as if they've been injured from the start of the season) whereas Vincent Janssen (who starts the season injured for 6 months) has 30+ appearances (as if he'd never been injured).

This won't happen because - for one thing - it would take away crucial context.

Milan signed Krzysztof Piatek because he had a magnificent first season at Genoa. Would it be realistic in FM19 if Piatek tore his cruciate ligaments for Genoa in December but still joined Milan the following month? Would it be realistic if the in-game Piatek scored once in 19 games for Genoa but still went to Milan, whose 20-goal striker Gonzalo Higuaín was recalled by Juventus and then loaned to Chelsea because that's what actually happened?

This won't happen either because - believe it or not - SI don't have the licences to use real-life results. That's why all the World Cup and Euro qualifying results are randomised in even-numbered FMs.

Fair enough. In that case, I would actually prefer not to have any January transfers (and loans). If I start in summer 2018, I expect the situation to reflect that transfer window. January transfers should only apply if one starts during or after that transfer window. Having said that, I don't know if or how this could be programmed.

Ah I see. Real-life results are not necessary per se;  real-life tables would suffice (not sure if this would bypass the licence requirement). After all, FM uses real-life team positions/stats and player apps/goals for past seasons so it would be along similar lines.
