Hopefully this is in the right place. Started a Leipzig game and the German reputations seem poorly set, or something. I’m 400-1 to win the CL, Bayern are 50-1, Dortmund 150-1 and BMG 1000-1. I’ve tried signing players and lost a player to QPR.

Not the right place I'm afraid - please post this in the Germany thread on the database & research forum if you have evidence that the reputations seem wrong.  Otherwise it may be an issue to do with odds for the gameplay team.  Thanks.

I play with Schalke 04 and my first-roud opponent in the first round of the DFB-Pokal is SC Paderborn. Because they're a club from the 2.Bundesliga it's not possible for them to play a match at home in the first round. Also Magdeburg as a 3rd division team, isnt allowed to play away until the final.

I hope you can understand my bad English. :D

@David Siddall - one for you please

Maybe the Bundesliga is allowing this, but due the legal license rights (DFL and others) it is not allowed to have a player younger than 16 (30/06/2004) in the game.

Any sources, where this is mentioned ??

As far as i can see, there is mentioned in a rule, that the draw for the first round will be in 2 pots.
Pot 1 = Bundesliga teams and the best 14 teams from the Bundesliga 2
Pot 2 = 2. Bundesliga team, placed 15-18 and all the other teams (3.Liga, ....)

Obviously this rule is not working correctly in the beta. 
I will forward this.

Could you please post this again in the correct thread (Database & Research Forum) and tell me about the odds from the other teams.

In the game it says no player under 17 Can play in Germany, but it should be no player under 16 just like in England France and other country 😜

Is there anywhere I can access the preseason odds for the CL ? I’ve got them for the Bundesliga through season preview but can’t find a similar option for the CL to view them now the tournaments started. I’ll pull a screenshot if so.

The subbing rule is not correctly implemented: In FM we can sub five times whenever we want. In reality these five subs are restricted to 3+1 "windows", i.e. the manager can only bring faces in at halftime and thrice during the game; if he wants to use all five subs he has to make a double-sub at least once.

Also dito to the age rule. For consistency's sake it should be changed, even if Moukoko can't be in the database. I could somewhat understand if it stays as it is as the old versions gave us already a few months more than real life but a change is still a change :)

I have a similar problem as Finnek with the DFB-Pokal. Not with 3 Liga teams, in six starts they were always sorted nicely. But with teams the leagues below -- they played against each others a few times.

Squad numbers for Bundesliga are restricted to 1-40, but in real life once you register 40+ players you are allowed to have numbers above 40. This is why Kampl can wear 44 for example. This is however not possible in game. Would be cool if you could add that rule.

This is in game.  Once you reach all 40 squad numbers assigned, you will be allowed to allocate squad numbers 41, 42, 43 etc. until everyone has a squad number.

Ok nice but I think the rule is that 40 players have to be REGISTERED, not have a squad number. Also the AI seems to ignore this and already changed Kampl's number.

We have implemented what we were told by our German research team, so they will need to respond to this.  Players with pre-existing squad numbers such as Kampl probably is, will have their real life squad numbers set.

Ok so do I have to post this somewhere else? And I know that pre-existing squad numbers are set at the start of the game but once the first squad numbers deadline comes up they change it. At least they have done it for Kampl, even though, I assume, 44 is his preffered number.

Ok right I see, yeah you would need to bring this up probably in the "All Other Gameplay" forum if they are changing his official squad number soon after game start.  They shouldn't be doing that regardless of there being a rule that says they probably can't change it to 44 anyway!

It should be just like in Ligue 1, Premier league and so on. No player under 16 Can play. Really hope they change it so Will be Like IRL

Yeah, it's correct with the pots, how you mentioned it. :)

Edit: The substitution problem was named before. :)

Eintracht Frankfurt will play Werder Bremen on matchday 6. Logically, they would have to wait until the 23rd matchday to play against them again. But here the match takes place after the game against Hertha BSC. This is not correct. It concerns by the way also other teams.

20201112152906_1.thumb.jpg.e37aa99acf9b27666eadc9e963db922e.jpg

The schedule seems to be wildly mixed up here. This is not correct either. In addition, this season only a simple round is played without a second round.

20201112153017_1.thumb.jpg.6dfc3f3126a6f4bc1eee9645ac2e49b3.jpg

Last year I had already noticed that the DFB-Junioren Vereinspokal takes place with 32 teams. Unfortunately, this time again there are only 21, and I would like to ask for a correction in this respect.

Sorry, but I've just been informed by our resident licensing expert that we will not be able to include this for FM21 for licensing reasons.  If we can include it for a future version we will.

Could you tell us why it is a licence issue? I mean they can use players at 16 years and older in France, England and many other countries? :onmehead:

There are some rules issues in the 3. Liga

1. In game you can have 20 players in your match squad, in real live it is only 18 (Unfortunately I haven't really found a source that clearly states this, but when the 2. Bundesligen allowed larger match squads, the 3. Liga just didn't follow suit)

2. In game you can make 5 subs, real live only 3 for the 20/21 season (https://www.kicker.de/3_liga_entscheidet_rueckkehr_zu_drei_wechseln-783216/artikel#:~:text=Das%20DFB%2DPr%C3%A4sidium%20hat%20beschlossen,Liga%20gilt%20das%20allerdings%20nicht.&text=Seit%20der%20Wiederaufnahme%20des%20Spielbetriebs,f%C3%BCnf%20Auswechslungen%20pro%20Spiel%20m%C3%B6glich.)

Those rules are different in the 3. Liga than in the Bundesliga and Bundesliga 2.

And the 3 substitutions i say allready before, too.

WHEN YOU MANAGE IN GERMANY AND YOU HAVE A B TEAM THAT ISNT IN THE PLAYABLE LEAGUES, THEIR SCHEDULE IS ALWAYS EMPTY AND YOU NEED TO RELY ON FRIENDLIES

CAN IT BE SIMULATED EVEN IF THE LEAGUE IS NOT PLAYABLE, AND SHOW HOW THE B TEAM IS DOING AND WHEN ITS GETTING PROMOTED TO PLAYABLE LEAGUES.

I LIKE TO MANAGE IN GERMANY BUT NOT HAVING THE ABILITY TO CHECK ON MY B TEAM IS A BIG TURN OFF

Hi, hoping this is the correct place to post this. This season the age restriction for players to play in the 1st team has been reduced from 17 to 16. Has this been changed in the full version as in the beta its still set at 17. thanks

In my opinion the Haaland clause hast to get out of the game? As far as i know, no one in an offical function or the player ever confirmed, that such a clause exists. There is a lot of speculation about a clause i the media, but with different dates and amounts an so on.

So i dont think that only rumor is a reason to put it in the game?

Erling Haaland has a release clause set for £69m (expires 31/7/2021). I dont believe that be correct. Lost rumours about a clause that comes into play in 2022. Surely with facts, there shouldn't be a release clause at all? Will it be removed from the full version?

thanks

This has already been brought up and I have explained that the licensors in Germany gave us a specific set of rules and this was not among these rules, in fact they requested otherwise.

I was having a browse of the 2.Bundesliga on my save and noticed a few issues with the fixtures in season 2. None of them major but not quite right either.

Looking at Union Berlin's fixtures for example, the gaps between the Sandhausen and St Pauli games, and then the Wiesbaden and Wurzburger games are a bit strange, and also the second Wurzburger game is being played before Wolfsburg are played the first time round. Not 100% on this but i'm not sure there should be a midweek round of fixtures where the Hannover game is either.

Well, I thought wouldn't have to be making any reports on bugs for the Bundesliga, but it's occurred again with scheduling for the Bundesliga.

The reigning Champion of the Bundesliga always starts games on the Friday of the season beginning and again the season has me kicking off on a Saturday.

 

This issue was brought upon from FM20's beta as well.

Ok, then there is nothing to be done I suppose, though it would be interesting to know why they gave you wrong rules. It does kind of annoy me in my save. But I understand that you probably can't do anything about it, if they gave those rules to you.
