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.

Well, we're not planning on moving anywhere, so, I'd say entire Russian pyramid is playable, maybe a couple of neighbouring nations, and some europeans nations, or Brazil, Japan, something, on view-only.

I'm not sure Japan is playable btw, did anyone check that out?

I think Serbia and Croatia would make good additions. I'd take out the Championship. Haven't tried playing with just one nation loaded and a lot on view-only, but if it's not too taxing on my PC, I'd add even more. Are Belarus and any other Russian neighbours playable?
