  1. Hey SaltyChancellor, I agree with you that transfers are sometimes not realistic but what is it to you if you as a manager is capable of competing against those teams. I know its really unrealistic that Ronaldo moves to spurs and that's totally never gonna happen, but I think its possible that Vinicius Jr. could go to Dortmund, various things happen in game that reflect a fantasy world and increase the appetite to compete for players. The key is that it is mostly the first year of the game that's in line with the real world, the following years don't follow the real world so think its fair to expect some things to be wild. No offence ­čśé
  2. All of you are making really great points. I think that the training section should be really worked on and improved upon. Player plans should be made more specific and there should be like a time frame that shows you how long a player could probably get to their next rating. For example, if a player is an 89 rated player, the training screen should show how long a player needs to hit the next rating (maybe in terms of weeks/months, anyhow would be fine) and I think it would really increase anticipation. I also think the chemistry should be worked on, like a player's chemistry should be improved every season because he plays with the same teammates. I also think that the finances should be improved big time, like the board should be willing to invest a huge amount of money into the club, not just a little as is observed in SM21. For example, in my Tottenham save, I won the champions League and the board only gave me 17 miller the next season, that is a way small amount of money and if not because of prize money and sponsorship, I wouldn't have had enough money to even sign a player on loan. Please let the board give a reasonable amount of budget every season, please. The usual investment for a club in a modern football world is at least 50 miller.
  3. Its been a long time since I have written so for someone like me writing, I guess I have somethings that I would really like to see addressed in SM22. The first thing I would really want to be addressed is player chemistry. We all know that in the real world, player chemistry improves every season if not every game. It baffles me that I sign a player lets say with an original chemistry of 80. I obviously expect that to rise every season because that player plays with the same teammates week in-week out, so there should be at least an improvement in chemistry for a signed player every time. I don't believe it should be static, it should be on the rise as the player gets more familiar with the club. Secondly, I would like the media presence to be improved upon. I play this game and sometimes, I don't even know what competition I'm playing next even though its on the schedule board in-game. I would like the media to become an active part in both pre match and post match asking questions that stimulate your nerves and give more appetite for the game. Articles should also be produced and sent to your inbox giving you detailed match information on the position of that team, their form, what the fans think of the game and stuff like that, something almost like in football manager. This third one might be a hard one but I believe it should also be worked on, that is THE COACHING STAFF. I play the game without actually knowing what manager I'm up against and their history, what tactic they like to employ, individual and collective trophies they have won, and their coaching staff. Even me personally as a manager should have a coaching staff, and be able to hire and fire if I want to. Even if I don't want to use all the advice that comes from them, at least they should be there, it could give you more insight on the tactical approach to employ. Thanks. I really expect to see these changes in the coming SM22.
  4. Hey, great suggestions SaltyChancellor, these are really great suggestions that you have put forth. I totally agree with you that manager jobs should be advertised based on how well the manager is performing and not necessarily where. I also suggest that the system of job applications and advertisements from SM20 should be combined with the current system in SM21 in the upcoming SM22 game. I believe that the system where teams personally contact the manager like in SM20 should be reinstalled and the system whereby a manager could apply for open job vacancies in this current SM 21 should be put together. I also agree with you concerning international breaks and friendlies, and I think it would really be a great addition in the upcoming game if they can add international breaks; featuring international competitions for various countries. Finally I agree with you that when international breaks are put in, recalling players should be an option except its against the player's desire.
  5. Hey PHrubo, I don't agree with you in all but the third point you made. I feel that substitutions should still be made manually because that is why you are the manager of the club, you have sole authority to influence the game and you want those decisions to come from you, not made by the computer. Imagine you are losing a game and you need to make a change, would you want the computer to make a change for you, NO! You would want to be the one making those change, maybe all I can agree with you on is that suggestions could be made on changes to be made but not changes made by the computer itself. Secondly, automatic loans would also not be great because of the point I have made earlier, as a manager you want to be able to control every aspect of the game. Lastly, I think I agree with you that the bug of the game timer should be fixed, its gonna make it more realistic.
  6. Hey Marin, I don't understand exactly all your points except 1 and 4. For the Korean name, I think its not a mistake but just a format used by the developers of the game to shorten the name because Asian names are usually very long, and mind you, its not only done for Asian names but there are a couple of names I don't know off the top of my head that have been shortened so I don't think that should bother you much. For the fourth point, I think there are already a couple of second division clubs in the game so I don't really know exactly what you mean. For England, Spain, France, Germany, Italy, USA, and many more, the game has leagues that even extends beyond second divisions down to even like fourth divisions. I don't know about Korean leagues though but if that's what you are referring to for an addition, I guess its a good point and I believe the additions might not be too easy for the game developers but we would eventually see it coming around. Thanks.
  7. Hey Muhammmad, I believe SM is working on adding the Malaysian Language and its league. As you know, English is one of the most used languages in the globe its only natural for SM to use it as a default language in-game.
  8. Hey, I totally believe SM is working on that and we would soon get the access to Indian leagues, its gonna be fun.
  9. Hey Momim, I don't know the Nokia you are talking about but I want to believe that it is one of the latest Nokia devices which are touch screens. Also, Theo (SM support) said that SM was made incompatible for some devices because they are too sub-standard for the optimal experience of the SM 21 game, so I suggest that you could either get a laptop to play it on or if your phone is a supported device, then you probably should be able to play the game.
  10. Absolutely right Theo, Pc's are the best!!!!!
  11. I completely agree with you Arthur that the advertising and the internet use of the game diminishes the height of consumer experience but I believe that this is the only way the game could actually make money, through being paid for ads and through people using the internet. I completely understand that people who don't have internet find it hard to enjoy the game but people who do have internet even enjoy it more so its kind of a fair argument. Also, I believe that these perks are just perfect substitutes compered to when you have to pay for the game like FM, but SM is completely free. You don't want them to run out of business, do you?
  12. Hey good day salty Chancelor, I believe SM is working hard on adding International teams and all the competitions that takes place with international teams. It would only take time and I fully support your idea. Looking forward to be able to use the USA to win the world cup!!!! ­čśé
  13. Hey Olox, I totally agree to what you said and I was just like you. If you find out that small teams are beating you, then try and be on a more attacking or normal depending on how good your team is and it is impossible for you not to loose so if you do, try and work on a tactic. For example, in my Tottenham save, I have a lot of 90+ players and I was usually playing on defensive sometimes and I lost those games, but when I changed, it resulted for the better. I also definitely agree that more formations should be added to the game, but remember that you can adjust formations to your preferred one even when the options are not there.
  14. I totally agree with you bro about your suggestions. For your phone getting hot, I would just suggest that you try and download the game from steam to your laptop and I'm assuring you that you would have a very optimal experience because that's how I play the game. For all other game updates, I believe everything you said is indeed plausible and SM will definitely look into it, but I think it would take time for the game to become all of what you expect, probably in the next seven years (LOL). But anyways, I feel that like just as you said, the injuries are crazy and the sub system in the game are not realistic and should be fixed right away.
  15. Yeah Joe, I think you are right!!! I am enjoying my Tottenham save again because I am winning games. The problem was that my team was full of 90+ rated players but I wasn't using the right tactic. Instead of using attacking, I was using normal or defensive causing me to loose games. I am now back on track and I have won so many games with my Tottenham side including the prestigious Champions League Trophy. I really appreciate because your advice was a catalyst to unprecedented success in the game save both for now and the future.
  16. Hey Bruno, I don't know what's wrong that causes your game not to be on par with your internet but I promise you, its not the game. I live in the USA, with full internet access and I play the game without connection problems. Also, for optimization, I think its on what device you play the game. I play the game on my laptop and it flows as smooth as ever because my laptop meets the requirements for the game and I would suggest that if you have problems with optimization, if you have a laptop, download the game from steam and play, I promise you would enjoy it.
  17. Hey bro, do you also agree with me that scout reports should be more detailed and even suggest how the team should play. I think it would go a long way in helping to plan tactics. I also am looking forward to them fixing the chemistry of players in the sense that even if a new player has a low chemistry in the first season, it can rise in the seasons following. I really think that would be a great addition.
  18. Yeah Scorpion, that's a good idea, an Egyptian league. It would be definitely fun to be able to play the leagues of whatever countries we reside in and I am sure Soccer Manager is looking into that. I can't wait for it!!!!!
  19. I can assure you as a big fan that Soccer Manager is working on that and every manager would have an optimal experience in years to come. The idea behind the game is to build it step by step so as to allow every manager to enjoy the game. Imagine if all the updates were released at once, people would enjoy it initially but Soccer Manager would be left with no more updates to introduce. I want to assure you Jahlaflare that in no time, Soccer Manager would add the feature of players being able to train in new positions and as a player too, I am highly looking forward to it and anticipating it. As Diri said, It's gonna be crazy!!!!!!!!!!
  20. No problem, I believe the game is working on that.
  21. Hey Andrey, I think that is a very good idea. I believe Soccer Manager is working on that and in a matter of years would be able to provide a variety of leagues that encourage diversity in playing the wonderful game, so just chillax, you'll soon get a lot of south American leagues at your disposal.
  22. Yes Diri, I totally agree with you. I think the game should add player swap deals so that we don't just pay a full sum of money upfront. Another thing I would love the game to improve on as some player ratings are very low is the the football of the next generation or the "next gen" footballers. I feel that after a while of playing the game, the younger folks in the game would not have developed so much to a level that can be included in big teams, all I am suggesting is that player development should be faster and like FIFA, the number of weeks that it would take the player could even be added so as to know when and how the player would grow. Diri, by the way, I think the game has provided an avenue of having two save game slots if I am not mistaken.
  23. So true, I support you my brother. I have a Tottenham save that I am not enjoying at all because no matter how many 90+ players I put in my team, I have never won a match against Manchester City, or Liverpool and it is so frustrating. Its unbelievable. Also, I recommend that scout reports should be more detailed. Okay fine, they tell us what the formation that team is gonna play, it also tells you the star players of that team, so what then do we do with it? Just set our tactic? Not real. The point is that scout reports shouldn't just say what the opposition's formation is, it should recommend how we should play and what kind of system we should play, Attacking, normal or defensive. Most times, I don't even know what to pick because the opposition may be so good, or even so bad. I also suggest that you change normal to a more football tactical word like "control" or counter attack.
  24. Good day Soccer manager, I just want to inform you about a certain concern I have with SM 2021 although the game is great. My complaint is about the training ground and how players get higher stamina levels through training when its actually meant to be through rest. I think the format of using training to boost fitness levels doesn't reflect the real word because even players get injured during trainings because it may be intense, how then in the world would that now make you fit? I think that should be changed and the method of adding rest to the calendars as done in SM 2020 should be brought back and should be coupled together with training which would help to keep the players game-ready and also help to boost ratings for players. I downloaded the game but I deleted it though because of this and stuck with the 2020 version but this doesn't mean that I don't love the 2021 version. I would be very happy if I see this worked on in a coming game update or implemented in SM 2022, Thanks.
