Stromson: Well that’s no good…

Firstly, I promise I’m not trying to spam by posting twice in one day (within 2 hours actually). That said, I just discovered a crushingly disappointing change, and it had to be shared (by video of course):

 

LLM Disappointment

For those who can’t watch, the crux of that video is thus: You’re no longer able to schedule exotic friendlies to earn cash in the lower leagues. While this decision is 100% realistic (it was little silly that we could go on world tours and make truck loads of cash as a lowly Welsh team), it presents a crippling problem. The Lido are already 70,000 pounds in the hole, and with so few fans attending our games, it’s going to get worse before it get’s better.

As far as I can tell, the only way to make any semblance of money in the Welsh league is to find your way into Europe. Unfortunately that’s going to be tough to pull off if you’re too broke to bring in enough players to improve. While this isn’t a flat out admission of defeat, it IS going to make our task much, much more difficult.

Keep going with the story, it is really interesting to follow your stories with the rather shitty teams and if you keep going im sure you will make it. cheer up mate=)

I would give it a couple of seasons to see if you can at least get into Europe and get the money rolling in that way. Hopefully then, that will encourage better players to join you and dominate the league and thus, getting into Europe on a regular basis.

If this doesn’t happen soon-ish then it might be worth looking into moving on…

Ouch, realism hurts! I have total faith in you being able to reach Europe in a few seasons so stick at it :)

Short and sweet but ill say it anyway…

Get a grip! You have to earn the right to propose exotic friendlies by slogging through the awful stuff first.

We’ll have a serious talk when I get back on Monday mister! ;)

Hi Stromson

I found that out with Plymouth too. No big pay days with pre season friendlies :(

Have to say I’m with Johnny, well done SI. Making the game more realistic is a definitely a good thing although the added realism will mean that what is impossible in real life may be very, very tough in the game (taking Welsh football to the elite.) I’d keep going though mate.

Keep going Stromson! You can get there, getting into Champions League group stage alone would be an enormous achievement so just set that as your main goal for now. Good luck!

Hey, Stromson! I found out that arranging friendlies at home with some teams will give you some extra money, while some specific friendlies are accepted by the board – just keep trying and you’ll find them. Even though we are not talking about friendlies that make as much money as in FM 2011, it’s some extra income that shouldn’t be ignored.

There is always the “pray that you get a sugar daddy chairman” option, but what are the chances? What teams can you schedule friendlies with? Or maybe you can hope for a gem from your youth academy who can be sold for a good sum………

Whatta bummer, but as others said it adds to the realism of the game. Twas to easy flying to obscure nations such as North Korea (it’s where I always ended up since I’m obsessed with the county :P :D ) and receiving a substantial amount of cash to play one friendly. Anyhow, looking forward to this ‘secret weapon’of yours. :D

It is realistic, so you can’t complain. It will suck for you, though.

I haven’t experienced this problem so I don’t really know much about it. My advice would be to deselect “compress save games” in the game preferences.
