I'm floundering in mid-table somewhat. About -690k in the bank so no movement yet. I guess things will get a bit more interesting once the first wave of transfer bans are up and we can maybe make some profit on our initial signings.

I've just listed Frank Lampard and Ansaldi. Really didn't want to but I think I can turn a profit without their wages. It's a sad day for Nomme Kalju.

No Drkshadow, no bids for me, but Im guessing that because I've got 21 players and it wouldn't let me sell anyone else. Not had any issues with the 2D engine either, maybe just a 1 off blip your end?

I'm now 1.5m in the red, unable to sell, I'm now just waiting for that wealthy Russian or what have you to call me and say.....

The money aspect is real tough though, I off loaded 4 players to bring me 700k in the red, cant sell anymore as not allowed to got below 21 players, and slowly reached 1.5m in the red again. Cant buy young cheap players to selling decent fringe, so Im at a dead end,

Couldn't handle it :lol: Yeh too stressfull man, felt like the job was 24/7, just got too much for me :D

The only odd thing, Nick, was forgetting about the squad minimum of 21. As soon as payers were able to be listed, I listed them with the intention to sell off the dead wood to raise cash, hell even 20k was a lot when you are in the red. Plus a run of shocking results and not being able to 'handle it', was time to go, there had a also been a few road bombs go off near the ground, that scared me a little. I will be back, maybe in the new season. For now, its slippers on, feet up and watch Corrie.

No.

What it means is that we cannot buy players from unmanaged clubs within the 5 leagues. For example, we cannot wait for a manager to resign and then buy up all of the best players from their squad.

You can still buy players from any other team around the world.

Mark
11-10-16, 09:02 AM
That's definitely not the case, 316! Must be a bug if you got an error about nationality?

Certainly can't buy from unmanaged teams though, it's external clubs that you can buy from.

If you click game world in the left menu after logging in, clicking on 'overview/history' will tell you what rules are in place.

And is it possible to edit the league set up? Like getting rid of Div 1 for instance.
Only a thought :)

18-10-16, 03:04 PM
Yes and no.

I will send another PM out each time we finish a season and have updated the OP of this thread but it's not possible to remove leagues. Five divisions should be fine, means there's an end game for most of us, particularly when starting in the lower league.

23 in the main squad and 4 in his youth squad.

I'm sure he will sell a couple quickly but not much point in him asking about the rules and then intentionally breaking them anyway.

I made sure I accepted the transfer bids for the players leaving before I confirmed the bids for the guys coming in.... and I brought all my guys up from my youth team so I'd make sure not to forget about them

The only players that you can't buy are the ones that are at unmanaged clubs within the 5 divisions (Juventus, Corinthians etc.).

Just had a proper look through my squad and this is going to be some tough slog. I am 7m in the red yet all my players are mid thirties so have no resale value and yet are on massive contracts! I'm like Leeds circa early 2000's...

Had a look at the loan market and there were only 2 players on it that weren't going to improve my squad whatsoever.

It is my first season so we'll just see how we get on...

nick1234
22-11-16, 11:44 PM
I think the key thing for new managers is to not ever leave yourself with only 21 players. This is the minimum allowed, so several managers in the past have been in the situation of being unable to sell and (if they are in debt) unable to buy. Wheeling and dealing is the key. Also, signing big name players is fine...but they will have big wages to match.

Mark
23-11-16, 10:00 AM
I must admit I am surprised. The economy has been set to 'rich' from the very start and usually chairmen will invest in expanding stadiums at the end of each season. I've not had that with mine for this season, hasn't anyone?

jcr909
23-11-16, 10:05 AM
Probably not my place to say as I'm new to the GW but I can't see how it can survive with such a huge gap (financially) between the smallest and biggest clubs, and the smallest clubs being too small in terms of generating income. The 25 limit will help a bit as the top teams won't be able to hoard all the best players but some of the smaller ones will never be able to afford one anyway and their managers are unlikely to stick around for too long in my experience.

Of the other GWs I've played in the only one still going (80 teams and up to season 22) is there I'm part because the teams are mostly at a similar level and the smallest at least can generate enough income to compete.

I've not read through the thread so this may have been brought up before or may have been the intention in the first place to make it more difficult (for some teams).

Mark
23-11-16, 10:11 AM
It is supposed to be tougher but at the same time, there should be improvements made to each club as we go on in a 'rich' economy. It's true that we've yet to see the benefit of such an economy yet though. I was under the impression that chairmen usually invest in expanding stadiums each season which in turn would help with gate receipts, etc.

Also - The bigger teams don't tend to get managed as we make our managers start from Div.5.

jcr909
23-11-16, 10:42 AM
That's fair enough, it'll be interesting to see how it plays out but it'll need a fair bit of patience I think.

The chairman input is a relatively new thing, they invest in the stadium and there's also cash injections every so often, although I've not seen one for a while thinking about it.

It is an interesting point and certainly some managers will see it as too challenging.

However, I think it fairly accurately represents the real world. Any team in the 5th tier of any country has to sign youngsters and sell them on at a profit to survive. The same is true here.

Signing 30-something internationals might pay off in the short term, but it will eventually be financially crippling as it should be.

jcr909
23-11-16, 12:17 PM
Definitely it's more representative of the real world, I guess the issue is whether that's what people want out of a game like this. One way to find out!

cerealkiller
23-11-16, 02:28 PM
Didn't everyody had the same budget at the start of the game? I'm thinking, even if you just took over a team in midseason you should have a decent squad that you can sell now.

Anyway i'm selling my best two players to balance my finances as I am 3.5 mil in debt so I think next season will be tougher than the last. You just have to make compromise here. :juggle:

Mark
23-11-16, 02:51 PM
Yup, part of it will be bad management of finances. I have £20M in the bank because I always buy low and sell at a profit. There were some who jumped straight into buying big names which means big wages.

I took over a squad with 35 players. Obviously I have transfer listed a bunch of players in order to meet squad size requirements. But not all players generates offers. Am I supposed to throw players away on free transfers or can I wait for an actual offer? Asking price is set to minimum.

Mark

I would stick the players up for face value and wait for the offers to come in. It does take time so you need a bit of patience.

Don't go to the trouble of releasing players as you'll just cost yourself money that way.

A question similar to Nick1234.

My mate recently took over Saham in division 5. When he took the team on they only had 21 players & a negative balance. Any pointers on how to turn the negative balance around so he can then start wheeling & dealing?

If he can't afford to buy anyone, & all of his players in turn retire, then what?

I don't know how much in debt they are, but he will get a decent bonus at the end of the season (more than 1million probably) so if that takes him into the black then he will be able to start wheeling and dealing.

If he is more in debt than that, he might be best off looking for another team who are solvent.

lank
06-03-17, 08:01 PM
It's worse than I thought, he's 4.5m in debt.

I remember that the last time that I checked, it was still possible for El Jaish to get back in the black because they have 25 players and could sell guys for 5.6m and 7.4m.

I think Mark allowed another manager to join in Division 4 though which seemed sensible.

I couldn't help but notice Kingsley Coman was purchased for 75% of his 28m price tag a while back. He's now worth 20m. I thought birthdays played a part in drop, see Donnaruma, but Coman hasn't had one since he was bought.

Anyone have thoughts or theories?

Redknapp69
28-03-17, 08:44 PM

Erkifino
28-03-17, 09:20 PM
Player values decreasing is usually based on age or ratings drop. Coman was worth 28m but because he was a free agent, 21m was the fee. He dropped 8m to 20m.

I'm thinking a position change may have played a part...

ebfatz
28-03-17, 09:37 PM
Other players in the squad will have an effect as well.

Example: If you have one 92 rated player in your squad, he will be valued much more highly than if you have a squad full of 90+'s.

Erkifino
03-04-17, 04:55 PM
Rabiot dropped 8m in value because of his birthday. Hopefully his sale goes through at 28m...

If he's listed at a cheaper price than he is worth, he was provably listed by the cpu before a rise. The deal wouldnt go through anyway. Your best is the team gets taken over by a human and agrees a fee with you.

I do think if that rule could lifted it'd be better for the lower teams. They'd provably end up with a positive balance.

We a started with 20m. Some had strategies and others didn't. The teams in the red were mismanaged , no offence lads, but signing 87+ rated in some cases was always gonna drain the money.

He's worth 3 million but transfer listed at 1.5. I would still be up for paying the higher price but probably no more.

We have very mixed feelings up here on Danny, one of the best shot stoppers we've had he pulls off some amazing saves but his decision making and command of area still need a lot of work. Very good keeper and a hero in the shoot out but think he's got to progress very well for next couple of seasons if he's ever gonna be champions league class

Adding to the earlier players ratings and birthday topic, does anyone have an idea what is going on with it?
I've 3 examples:

- Eugen Polanski, bought for 5.4m at 30 years old. He turned 31 and instantly went down to 4m.
- Lasse Schone, available for 5.4m at 30 and I noticed his birthday was coming up so thought I'd hang off. Birthday passes and he's still 5.4m.
- Tom Davies, was transfer banned until today and was valued at 3m. Checked today and his value has shot up to 5m! No birthday, position change or rating hike.

Confused!

Erkifino
30-05-17, 03:03 PM
In relation to Tom Davies, ebz mentioned if you have two players with the same position/rating, they won't be valued as highly
Did you sell someone in or around the age, rating, position as Davies?

Might not always even be same position. If a high value player leaves then everyone else left becomes higher value to that particular club as a result.

It's been going for about 10 years and is midway through season 25, until now it's been closed to members of the Football365 Forum but since that forum closed to new users we've struggled to get new managers. There's a few teams available that might be a decent long term project for someone - it can be hard to deals so you might need some patience (a bit like this GW hence why I mention it). Details are:

I'd never noticed it before. It'll be due to the unmanaged teams being unable to sell players but they can buy players who do play for the teams IRL.

And make it easy? Not a chance!There's hundreds of interesting players that are stuck at teams with little prospect of them ever being available. Just seems a bit pointless.

Got two questions.

I've taken over a team last week and put some of the players on the transfer list.

How long does it generally take to get bids for those players? And can my players only be bought by fellow managers or also by the CPU?

You weren't part of our old gameworld where everyone hogged the best players. We've got rules in place for a reason.

No particular time limit, I put someone on the list 2 weeks ago and only got a bid a few days ago.

Players can be bought by anyone.

As opposed to them being 'hogged' by unmanaged teams? As is it they might as well not be in the game at all?

I'm not sure how stopping anyone from being able to buy half the players in the first place helps anything.

As I posted last week, I'm working on that now with taking over the teams in the top divisions to sell the ones that actually don't belong to them. That'll put a fair few players back on the market this way.

Anyways, It's your GW so I'll wind my neck in and see how it goes :-)

I've been sent a PM by one of the guys in our game world pointing out that some of the squads are getting out of control in the top leagues, highlighting Benfica as an example who have 110 players :eek:

I'd never noticed it before. It'll be due to the unmanaged teams being unable to sell players but they can buy players who do play for the teams IRL.

Would you guys be happy for me to take over these teams one-by-one and sell the players who actually no longer play for the teams IRL? I'll only be selling them to clubs outside of our game world too.

Still working away at this, on my third team now :ok:

Some rate cheeky managers out there bidding for players while I'm at it. One tried to buy a Barcelona player today :lol:

Doing a good job there. Don't see a problem with managers trying to buy off the clubs your selling though. Only an opinion [emoji51]

Keep at it Mark.

Regarding the purchase of players from the teams that Mark's attending to. In my eyes that team should still be classed as unmanaged, as a result we can't buy players from them. As the players move on they will become available though.

Hi what are the rules regarding changing teams? I'm looking for someone with a bigger stadium capacity as my vipers will just not be able to compete at all if we make division 1

As I understand it, you can swap for a team in the same division that you are presently in, or one in a lower division. I'm sure Mark will be on at some point to confirm.

Ok well I'm gonna try get Vipers up this season and then have a good go at the first division for a season. Then I think I will have actually earned a move to one of the bigger division 2 teams

Afternoon chaps,

I'm trying to change teams to one in the same division as me. When I click apply and follow the prompts I get a message saying "The Game World must be open before you offer clubs out."

Any ideas on how I can swap teams please?

Not sure if it's a good idea as my AS Trencin side are currently on a 30 odd game unbeaten run, but just thought I'd ask!

Cheers,

Jonny.

There are only 20 strikers in the game that are 93 rated or higher. Alexis Sanchez is available I believe but will set you back a few bob. :)

Do they happen daily?

I’ve had recent positional changes for some people in my team

Mark

It's usually on a daily basis but I think the latest created players list has been stuck for about 3/4 days?

Yeah I have checked the SM forum and everyone is a bit bemused what is going on.

Was hoping the review of the big 5 leagues will be soon...

10-05-18, 10:24 PM
Assuming they haven't had a scouting strike. UK, France, Italy, Germany, and Spain should be next.
Suggestions on the biggest rating risers in those leagues. Only 3 though.
Rice - West Ham
Sancho - Dortmund
Diabate - Leicester

Celtic beat Dinamo Zagreb 2 - 0 in their Division 1 fixture.

Eriksen scored a goal and was later voted Man of the Match for his performance.

Salah was also on the scoresheet for his side.


An even game - but it goes our way today




WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS :first:




Celtic have won Division 1!



Celtic have been awarded £34,709,651 in prize money.




I feel as though I have done all I can for the club and will be resigning from Soccer Manager

It's been a helluva ride and no better way then agoing out at the top!

Feel free to raid my team of stars :lol:


Good luck one an all! :ok:
