The "american way" is done for. Think of it as an open market like UK has.How is the transfer market? Still uses the "american way" with cap space and draft or have a normal way yo buy players? And what did you do to the affliate teams that MLS clubs have?
Hey there. Sorry for taking all day to reply.Hey @FM Digi!
Huge fan of this database, I've used it a bunch and I like to go in and up the reputations to make the US tier more like one of the "top 5" -- however, after adjusting some reputations, I can't validate the second tier, as it says there are only 23 of 24 teams for stage 0.
When I look at the teams in the division, it shows all 24. Any ideas what's going on?
Hey there. Sorry for taking all day to reply.
Thanks for the kind words. The DB is a bit finicky with some of the academies in the pyramid and having them in the same league as parent club. I think that's what is causing the validation errors. If you keep trying, eventually they will all pass but it does take several attempts. It's a huge pain but one I have seen over and over again.
Yeah that’s an issue someone found the other day and I’ve verified it. I think it’s because there’s something hard coded in the database for USA as I tested with a Canadian league and saw it do a proper intake. I then swapped one of those Canadian teams with a USA team and the Canadian team didn’t do an intake while the USA team did.Didn't get any in June 2021 either.
I had a devil of a time with the U23 and U18 teams setting them up and eventually had to remove them as there seems to be a bug in the Editor about that.@FM Digi - curious if you could give me a hand in understanding how to manage these reserves.
I'm playing as the Timbers, there's a U23, U18, and Portland 2 (reserves) team.
Portland 2 is the only one that has a league to compete in. I've hired up staff on them as best I can fit -- there are options for delegating player scquisition and the like, but if I choose to control it myself, I can't figure out how to sign players to Portland 2 contracts specifically and if I delegate it, my managers aren't filling the team with players.
What's the recommended strategy to be sure I'm suing this set up correctly?
