yes, i have. note that i used dotted gray on the squares, because i wanted to the field to be the most visible element on the picture. i could use another color and make it VERY visible, but i wonder what would the users think about that.

Northstar, the idea here is: we tried to come up with something a little bit more flexible than managersim´s defensive/offensive formations. With our idea, each player can have a different off/def mentality! I think that is a very nice change. But if the experience shows me that I am wrong, we will not hesitate to re-design that screen.

Please note that we do not have formation strategies yet, and I think that this may be what is generating the whole confusion. Those will enable the manager to modify the formation on different situations (ball possession / no ball possession, for example) and etc.

Hello,

I had made a formation and then deleted it. Now my first div match is on turn 54… I know this is just a BETA version, but how will this affect the calculations for the ranking and the number of played games for the season?

Thanks and keep up the good work!

it depends. what we can do is create links, inside the game, to a particular part of the forum (dedicated to dimension 1, for example).

and i dont know if i am really comfortable with an effort to make our game reflect the reality. I am much more comfortable with the idea of the players doing a good job with better balanced conditions at the beginning. later, the good job may reflect on better youths, better economy and who knows what else (maybe even country development).

or maybe i dont want to be constantly reminded that brazil´s economy sucks. :)

In a distant future maybe, we use a third party forum, no ideia how long it would take to have an in-game one :-)

As Danilo said, the league matches generation randomly decides if you’ll play home or away (of course you’ll always play against each team twice, one at home and one away), and in the average, the result is not that unbalanced. Even on MS sometimes I had 4 away matches in a row :-)

Cheers.

this was related to deleting created formations. everytime you deleted a formation, the matches were that formation was applied were also deleted (!!!!!!).

I agree Toni, as you said, we’ll find out how economy goes during Beta 1. To be honest, we did not test it intensively, so it may become unbalanced quickly.

The stadiums suggestion is interesting. Depending on our economy results we may use that or simply let everybody start with the same stadium size. First we have to figure out how stadium increasing will work.

I’m not sure I understood…if you want to see other team’s matches you have to go to that team’s screen and click on that page’s matches link, is that what you want? Are you suggesting a direct link to this page from somewhere else?

Cheers.

We should have hidden the side of the player everywhere, but we did that only on some places. Groover is right, no effect at all.

I was planning to allow sorting on everything, but if many people think it will spoil the fun of finding good players I’ll reconsider and allow sorting on position only.

That’s strange, check on turn 10 if your balance changes. But be sure you’re not confused by what I said, the finances screen does not display what your balance was when you navigate through previous periods, we still have to implement that.

just curious to know, was this related to GMs switching teams?

Hasn’t Danilo fixed that boundaries problem?

We were probably restarting the server to fix the disappearing matches problem, no need to worry. If that keeps happening please let us know.

Exactly LeeHamo, that’s why Premiership is not that good on RS, they start with no foreigners at all.

It is related to your players quality, so the order would be Brazil 1st, Italy 1st, Spain 1st, England 1st, Brazil 2nd, Italy 2nd, Spain 2nd, England 2nd.

hi Danilo,

if it helps, the manager of Parana switched to athletico-PR. it appears those two teams were affected by this change.(Including scheduled friendlies)

It’s all good- at this point having any matches is a bonus for all of us who have been missing our fix of footie sims :D

It’s one of those things that we got used to in MS- hopefully we won’t need to on here- but be patient- it’s generally an overload on the server as everyone tries to read their match report etc.. :) usually happens just after tick time as we all rush like mad to check our results :)
