Same here, although i am trying to do a long-term save with West Ham now :)

Been focusing on youth this time aswell, should hopefully make it more fun, seeing the young prospects develop

I think my average is around 5-6 seasons. I just decided to play a long term career with Holstein Kiel in the German Regionalliga Nord (4 tier) and see how much I can progress. I actually had a fun Chelsea career, but I lost interest after I had won every single trophy and were about to win the EPL for the 5th time in a row it became a bit pointless.

My average is about 3-4 seasons. My Mac starts slowing down after around 5-6 anyway and it annoys the **** out of me.

I have a MacBook Pro and I'm at season 2024 and mines isn't too bad. I don't look at player or team info on the main feed.

I'm not so sure. I think its because the database gets too big. Thing is I don't even load many leagues. I start with around 12,000 players.
Mine is the same. I have a toshiba satellite pro which runs fine when not playing FM, but then out of nowhere it starts to overheat and the fan goes crazy loud. I've just bought an external monitor to connect to my laptop and plan to run the monitor off my laptop, meaning I can close it's lid. Do you think this would make a difference?

I'm the exact same. I can easily spend 15 minutes deciding what team to be, and then sometimes I just end up turning it off because I can't find the "inspiration" to play it

There is no immediate limit. I recently downloaded a save game (Can't remember from where though, sadly I lost it) which was in the year 2615.

OT: I can't get myself to go past 2018 in this years FM. In FM12 I was in the year 2030.

depends on the save, usually do a west brom save for 6-7 seasons, liverpool for another 6-7 and a blue square n/s which is usually up to about 15 seasons.

Current longest save with a random journeyman save at 23 seasons in, been to 10 different clubs during it so far. Finding it fun.
