    Uploading now.

    We still have to make a rule about changing from sugar daddy foreground, to background, and then under writer.

    I think maybe we change to background after our first year in the Champions League (not just Europe, but Champions League PLEASE NOTE: background you still get good money from the chairman). Then after either: 5 years in Champions League OR we win the Champions League we change it to Underwriter (still a rich man owns you, but he only throws in money to pay off debts).

      Just noticed something that is annoying me is I didn't capitalise Sung. Might correct that when it comes around to me, unless someone else wants to.

          Not me, I thought we'd be talking this over for a while longer.

            Little surprised you took matters in own hands, Alex, especially considering you're not planning on playing first. Let other regulars have their say about the set-up of the game.

            And again, I have no idea why we sould select 4 tiers in England. Premier League is more than enough... there'll be plenty of good players available for Vladivostok regardless of all these extra leagues. (EDIT: I now notice you put them on view-only, so it's not that bad for slower computers.)

              I don't see any point in having more than one tier in any league other than our own, or maybe some of our neighbouring leagues. Still, full Russia and top tier for 8-10 leagues or so should be good enough. Anyone who wants less or more should just load them when it's his turn. If I get stuck with 20 leagues I'm just gonna lose interest because it'd take too long to play.

                I can do it again. It's no issue.

                I'd prefer more than one tier so that it opens up possibilities for buying. We will be buying players from below the premiership to start.

                As I said, happy to start it again whenever. Wasn't hearing much discussion and that I did hear I took into account. Just let me know what needs changing. Not sure how much we're going to discuss it before we do it though!!

                All the leagues are on view only, except ours. Silly to do anything else. Az-you can't add leagues to view only. Only to playable.

                This year view only seems further removed from other years. It's more about the number of players in the database, and playable leagues, as far as slowing down the game goes. With playable leagues, we can also turn match detail right down too (for instance once we're promoted to top flight in Russia turn the second tier right down, and before we make it to Europe, turn Europe detail right down). Those details make much bigger impact than how many view only tiers you have in England.

                As Juve mentioned, view only does have quite an impact.

                But as I said, it's all really not an issue for me. If we're that scared of speed I can start it again with even less view only leagues. I was just trying to get something up before I went to bed so we could hook in!

                  Generally I only go below the Top Tier in the league I'm playing in and I also usually add the Championship. I'd suggest that. 2 tiers in Germany/Spain/Italy/France just seems completely unnecessary and 4 in England is lunacy.

                  View Only has always done very little IMO and isn't really worth it. It's why I usually only have Playable leagues even if I don't intend to ever manage in Brazil.

                  That mafia guy as the chairman sounds like a great idea.

                  1917 anniversary kit is hilarious, but I would imagine the Port of Vladivostok relishes its new capitalist nature, and surely the oligarch chairman does.

                  Since I think we should take away several leagues, I still propose adding a couple eastern european leagues since they can provide many of our players. Turkey is always a fertile breeding ground for talent, as is Romania, so I'd add those. After that maybe some Yugoslav Republics like Serbia or Croatia. Top leagues only of course. My other suggestion would be to add South Africa since those players go anywhere, and it seems like the quality of South Africans has been boosted considerably this year.

                  Alex, I really don't think you need to worry about lower tier players even when we're just starting out. First of all, lower league teams in a large database will still have most of their best players if the top tier is loaded. Secondly, I just don't know how many Western Europeans we'll be buying anyway.


                  Like Az, I didn't think we would be starting so quickly. I'm enjoying my Gladbach game right now. In a week or two if no one has started I'll do it, but I'm not interested at this moment.

                    Sounds like a plan. However, I disagree about view Only. View Only means the sides are much more active in the transfer market, as they play league games (with basically no detail recorded). In my experience it leads to a much more active transfer world, where players go to places apart from the active nations.

                    However, I guess having nothing but top tiers won't be an issue once we start playing better sides.

                    So no Serie B or Segunda? And apart from that, same nations as I chose, but only top flight in all except England-where we'll have championship?

                    And if we add eastern Europe, surely Czech has to be one of the first?

                    I don't like South Africa being added. Much less comes out of there, than somewhere like Japan. And Japan is so close. I'd probably think if we're worried about speed, we don't add either.

                    As for the Revolution kit-let's not let facts get in the way of a good story!

                      I agree, I think we should add a working J-League and possibly a working K-League as well.

                        I've obviously enabled the J-League (ie. removed the licensing block), but there are no J-League players in the game (except three Aussies I've added to my database who play in Japan and for the national team - as my game at home with this DB is as Aussie National Team manager!)

                        So it'd be fine to add J or K League, except that J-league would start empty (although that would be fixed by that "add players to active squads" or whatever it is tick box at the start of the game?)

                          That's too bad about the J-League. I don't think it's worth it TBH. K-League should be roughly as good though. Not as much money, but Korea's players are equal to Japan's.

                            Yeah. When it's time, if no J-League expansion has been created, I'll see what happens if I start a game with J-league. If it fills it with guys, i'll leave it in. I'm fairly sure none of us know many J-League players anyway...

                              I had to buy a new computer, so if I can't find a way to transfer my Gladbach/City game over (motherboard issues), I'll start this.
