    @craigibhoy Once you are ingame, go to "Settings -> Settings" on the side bar, and click the "Select" button under "Help". Then you'll have to option to su bmit a bug ticket.

    If you have had this bug can you report it through the in-game bug reporting system. That way we can investigate this in more detail.

    What Have You Guys Been Doing For The Past 2 Years

    There's a few points to make generally about this that I think can explain this for that player. Firstly is that these are two different games, even though both games derive there data from the SoccerWiki they handle them in different ways. In SM19 the ratings of all players, which are obtained from the wiki, are scaled back in order to give room for player growth. That's why the ratings are different for the same player, but it doesn't mean that the player is worse on SM19. The value is calculated completely differently in both games as well. SM19 takes alot more factors into account when calculating a players value than worlds does, and have two very different economies, in SM19 its much easier to obtain cash and its much easier to sell your players than it is on worlds where cash is in shorter supply and its real people making decisions on transfers. Because of these factors the values of players need to change.

    What Have You Guys Been Doing For The Past 2 Years

    Hey guys, A players value is determined by the players current rating, age and hidden potential. Factors that reduce a clubs demands are contract length and player morale. For the most part we believe that our algorithm is solid and generates realistic player values, but if you think thats wrong we would need to see evidence of this before we can look into tweaking the algorithm, including the name of the player, their current stats, club they are at and contract length With the youth players coming out of your academy, the quality of the player is all based on chance. To try to mimic real life the chances of you getting star player through the academy is always low, but the chances do increase when upgrading the youth academy. However this it is not guaranteed to give you the good players so if your unlucky this could be why your not seeing any come through. Other teams youth players work in a similar way, except their chances are weighted towards how good the club is, so this means that teams like Real Madrid will get some better youth players coming through than lower league teams will. It has been done this way because there was an issue in SM18 were some AI teams could stagnate many seasons in, once all the real life players had retired a team like Real Madrid could have been left with only average players that came through the youth academy a few seasons prior. We are aware thought that the youth academy can be improved upon and its something that we are looking into, but it will not be a simple fix, as it will have to be balanced with the rest of the game. Thanks for the messages, I hope that this will clear things up for you.

    Hi @BadJob, In regards to the match engine, all of your matches are played out in real time. None of the outcomes are fixed or predetermined, they are simply a result of what happens in the match. The engine will react to the tactics and players on both teams, their stats, their current level of fitness etc. So this means if you change your lineup or tactics, before the game or during, the match will play out differently as your team will make different plays or change how hard they push, depending on what has changed. And with those changes the AI team will react in different ways to your team. However if you run the match and don't change anything it will play out again the same. But even if you change your tactics there is no guarantee that it will change the outcome of the match. The issues with the transfer budget that you have put forward, I've found difficult to answer. This is because your suggestion to calculate the weekly income and outgoings is exactly how the game currently works, and all of the values that are shown influence the total balance of your team. We have changed the way the teams balance works a lot since SM18, with the separation of the wage budget and transfer budgets. We feel like this adds more depth to the game and makes you think more about the transfers that you are making as that team, in order to balance the cost of your players wage bill to the income generated at you club. That being said with it being a new feature it is more likely to have bugs than other areas and it is easy to be unbalanced for some teams. If you are seeing a £20m decrease in your game we would have to look at that on a case by case basis to figure out what is happening see if there are any underlying issues. If you send us a bug ticket with the effected save file loaded we can get a copy of your save file and look into it here. I am interested to keep exploring feedback further on here and any other thread for that matter, i do read the vast majority of posts when i can, and i want to keep up with this kind of community engagement. Don't worry about spending time on writing replies, i have likely spent longer writing this one

    Hi @BadJob, Thanks for your feedback on SM19, we are always looking for more feedback as it lets us know what our users like and don't like in the game, its also a great way for us to find and track down any bugs in the game. From what we can see currently the vast majority of players are happy with the game as it stands, so it would be great to discuss the concerns with the game, that you have mentioned above in more detail. Hopefully i can provide some clarification on any issues you have seen, and if not then we could discuss how best to resolve things. Bamber

    Details make the difference!

    Hey Jota8000, Thanks for the feedback, i just wanted to let you know that all the data for the game, including club logos and stadiums is community generated. So we dont have direct control over it. This means that you can go over to https://en.soccerwiki.org, create an account or login, find SC Farense and submit a change for that team. Other members of the community will then vote on the changes to approve them.

    progress bug

    I'm not sure about notifications, that might depends on your phone settings, but you can enable Auto-update from the app store.

    progress bug

    No it wont be that long, we do "big" updates in January to match what has been going on the in real life transfer markets, we can push out updates to the apps relatively often. I think the next update will be out in a week at the latest.

    progress bug

    Hi, This is a known bug which I've been working on, there will be a fix in the next update of the game that will correct your save file. When you have the update all you will need to do is load your game like normal and it should repair those fixtures. However to maximise the chance of the game getting repaired completely i'd ask you to not progress any further from the current date that you are on until your game is repaired

    Progress bug

    We have been looking at the issue recently and it is down to optimisation of this part of the game. We have now improved this area of code so that it runs much better and that has been included in the latest version of the Android app, which was uploaded yesterday.

    Developer Q&A

    Hey guys Thanks for your questions, i'll go through them now and answer them the best i can. I'm going to close this post to any new responses after this but if this is something that you would like to happen more often then we will look at doing another Q&A session again soon. Lets get going then! Release date for Android and iOS will be the 31st October 2018. There will also be an announcement after the game has launched on mobile devices about when the game will launch for desktop platforms Yes we are always looking to improve the game once it has been released with regular updates. These will usually contain bug fixes, updated data or some new features. Following on from the above question we will always be looking to improve the game generally, in terms of performance and play ability. More specifically we will look at the response to the game once its released and re-visit any areas that keep being mentioned as problematic. Going forward though, not long after launch we will be announcing what features/improvements will be coming in the next update of the game, so keep an eye on the blog for this information at http://blog.soccermanager.com/. Yea anyone can apply for a job here. If you're interested all you'd need to do is send your CV and covering letter to careers@soccermanager.com I'd hope so, that would be good wouldn't it We want to get as many as we can obviously but we will just have to wait and see what the numbers will be. Since SM18 the way that player values get calculated has been completely overhauled. Now in SM19 it takes into account many more factors that it did in previous versions, and there is an element of randomness to this as well, so that its not the same every time. We feel that it is a more realistic valuation than before, for the most part, but we will continue to monitor values. Thanks again for the questions guys, like i said I might do another on of these soon if the demand is there. In the mean time however feel free to message me on here if you think of anything before then. Bamber

    Developer Q&A

    Hey guys, Just a quick one, i'll be answering all the questions tomorrow. So if you have any more last minute ones, stick them in here now! Bamber

    Hey theshed876, All of the player stats in both SM18 and SM19 are derived from the SoccerWiki site. These player attributes values are calculated based on the number of votes that player has on their attributes on the Wiki. The difference here is that the data for SM18 will have generated last season, whereas the data in SM19 will be fairly up-to-date. Bamber
