Match times.

Post by lee400 » Sat Sep 15, 2007 10:36 pm

Managers should be able to decide whether to have a match at the time or not.

What I mean by this is that we should be able to cross out some times - and at these times, absolutely no matches will take place (Friendly cup games will be scheduled at some other time, and no invitations can be made).

And to show the difference (if necessary), the new fixtures table could look something like this;

04:00 bla bla : bla bla 2 Set / Change
10:00 bla bla : available Invite team.
14:00 Manager has not allowed a match at this time.
18:00 bla bla : bla bla 2 Set / Change
22:00 bla bla : bla bla 2 Set / Change


Any opinions? Its because I really find it difficult to look after my players. For example, I'd rather have no matches on sun, and only 3 matches each day (excluding official game), but fr cup schedules ruin this, and ruin my plan to look after my A-team's Moral/fitness.

Please write your own opinion below.

I agree with having the option: "The manager doesn't allow any fixtures at this time".

PS.: You also can trick the system. The hard thing to do is to find a team to wich to send friendly invitations, and that team to not accept does invitations. You just send fr invitations for the time you don't want to play a game, so the game engine doesn't schedule a game if there is a fr invitation sended to a team.

This is of course a very helpful feature. However, I’m generally for new features that modernise the game, make it closer to reality and more complex, or solve existing problems. This ‘problem’ is a major headache for many, but ‘solving’ it will make the game substantially easier. I’m not sure this should be our goal, sorry Lee.

cercel_jr, I now need to find a team! But it is indeed very hard!

And zandyy, what you are saying is indeed true, it makes everything far more complicated, but as you say, isn't it more realistic to be able to control the fixture times for friendlies? :?:

you may solve this issue temporary, that you send invitation to the player, whom you know he will not accept your invitation ...

however sure your proposal is great, this would not require to plan those dummy matches i schedule with some friends ...

The only negative thing is that now the tournaments will take much longer time to play, according to managers waiting for recovering of the key players.. :roll:

Now I am in a tournament waiting 2 weeks to one silly manager to play his match, and this will longer this waiting period..

i don't agree with this, it is possible that a 32 cup with no groups to take 10 weeks which is more than a season! because it's enough to exist 1 team who plays a lot of matches and also blocks the rest of the dates to asure his key players are ok and so ... the whole 32 teams would be blocked. imagine that a manager is pissed off ... he will enter the 5 cups he can, he will block everything and that would be annoying for 31*5 teams. just because we cannot manage the team in a proper way without the help of the system ...
i think the difference between good managers and other managers is made by keeping the game difficult and not by making him too easy.

a solution for this ... i think that if we would be able to block a date only at a 4 days distance (a cup game is set at a difference of 3 days) would be better.

Indeed 4 days it's more than enough, but 3 weeks it is very much.
If it's not used careffuly this new improvement can do lots of "damage" to lot's of managers.
I think you rushed a little bit and didn't took this issue in consideration.

Personally, i like blocking all Sunday off, so i think it's a good feature, even though friendly cups will probably take a little more. But every feature has it's pros and cons.

I like it, because it makes my schedule easier and I don't have to look for managers to send invitations.
3 weeks it's too much, anyway, but this is a small minus for this feature, the plus is bigger, so it's ok.
