    25 Player Squad Limit Watch

    Hi all,

    Prior to this game world being created, we agreed that you should have no more than 25 players in your squad. This was to avoid a scenario of hoarding the best players in the game which can put potential new managers off from joining our competition as there wouldn't be any decent players to buy.

    Unfortunately, it's not possible to actually enforce this rule itself in the game world. As a result, we expect you all to stick to this limit yourself and be aware of how many players you currently have. This figure includes players you have sent out on loan and also any players you may have in your youth team.

    Should you go over this limit, please sell or release players ASAP!

    I have created this thread in order for everyone to keep an eye on squad limits and if any manager spots a team with +25 players, please post here so that we can alert the manager to take action right away.

    Thanks
    Mark

    Crap, I didn't even notice! Game offers limited options to fix it. Trying to release players and being told this player worth almost nothing is "Too good!"

    Will get it fixed. I think I've managed to knock at least one off.

    That's what I suspected. I did post about it in the main thread when it all got going but a lot of people probably skipped it to join the competition.

    No worries - At least you're aware of it now

    Im new to the game and just kept signing player. Didnt pay attention to the squad limit actually, and I apologize for that.

    Unfortunately my players are all transfer banned until at least sept. 1st.

    My squad is pretty balanced, though. I dont think my signings prevented anyone from having best players than those thy already signed.

    That said, I apologize once more and hope you all understand this noobs mistake.

    Ill get to the limit as soon as players are released from their bans.

    Cheers!

    Needs some sort of administration mode or something.

    Don't know if the game did it or I did it. I had 6 players. Signed a bunch. Now I have 30!

    I've gone through all of the squads to check on the latest squad sizes. These guys still haven't brought their squad size back down to 25:

    Independiente Sante Fe - technoir - 28.
    FK Zeljeznicar - mcmackin - 27.
    Molde FK - London35 - 37.
    Lokomotiv Tashkent - crnibo - 27.
    Bolivar - rikardo - 29.
    El Jaish SC - cahill_11 - 26.

    These are new ones who have gone over 25:

    Real Salt Lake - stevethedog - 31.

    I've now sent all of these guys a PM although I know that London35 and rikardo are two who weren't aware of the rule and are now unable to sell the players until their transfer bans are up. This may apply to the other managers but they have players that they can sell to get the numbers down anyway.

    How can anyone not be aware of it though? Was made clear upon joining.

    Guess there is not a lot that can be done either apart from removing them from the game after so many "strikes"

    All we can do is keep reminding people and hope they stick to the rule. It's not possible to remove people, as stupid as it sounds.

    If your squad is over 25 players you should be made to nominate a 25 man squad.

    It will get a bit hairy for the rest of us especially when the cup and shield are in full flow and you shouldn't be able to benefit from a bigger squad than the rules permit.

    BUMP!

    With the transfer bans coming to an end for most managers, this is a polite reminder that you MUST stick to the 25 man squad limit. This means you must SELL before you buy to stick to the limit!

    I've gone through all of the squads to find that there are 6 managers who have gone over the limit:

    Lokomotiv Tashkent - crnibo - 26.
    Real Bamako - phil_jackson - 34.
    Maccabi Tel Aviv - dutt45 - 32.
    Molde FK - London35 - 36.
    Sparta Praha - hawthorino - 29.
    Sw Sport - Haremaker - 26.

    I've sent these guys a PM with a link to this thread to fix ASAP. dutt45 can be let off as he has only taken over today.

    To be fair, I'm one over. I had hoped one of my keepers would have had an offer so I bought a new one. He's played one game, but I'll bench him until I'm back down to 25
