Today (March 5th 2015) we have deployed some bug fixes and some new features.

New Features:
* A tool for the GMs to terminate contracts (until now they could only revert contracts).
* Adding the possibility to change position for 18 year olds with supporter pass. A feature that makes it possible to change position for 18 year old footballers in order to make it easier to get new users active and get more active teams more easily. The position a footballer has when a match is loaded (just before the match link shows roughly 10 minutes before the match start) will be the one used in the match we may add.
* The possibility for managers and assistant managers to add an automatic welcome message that is sent out to the users who sign a trial contract with the team. This will hopefully make new users feel more personally welcomed to the team and give managers higher control of how they want to greet new team members with less effort.
* A new column showing the UDP of the last played match of the footballers on the team footballer page. The column can be visible by the “Field Chooser”.

Bug Fixes:
* Termination of time constrained bans (when being banned from the site) will be handled automatically (up until now this has not been working as intended).
* Link errors on the five last played matches on the team page for managers have been fixed.
* The links to the National Teams on the National Team summary site under the NFIDA have been fixed.
* The team forum post count on the navigation bar have been fixed and a "Set All Posts As read" link has been added on the Team Forum pages.
* Confidence has been investigated carefully and all bugs have hopefully been found and corrected.

Minor Graphical Change:
* Changed background of the site to a bit brighter version of the background. This was actually changed a couple of days ago.

If you're adding columns in the players table, would be good to add the column "salary" on it. If you have young players in your team, as a manager, you've to check each player one by one to see if they are getting the maximum salary. With that column it will be faster.

And yes, Salary will be also good.

Can you add (on a future update) the option to chose a continent when you set a trial contract?
I don't want to narrow the contract only for one country, but if I can select Europe it will be nice, because many non-EU users are coming at my team (in ROU) and it's clear that they can't play at that slot time Sad

It's a bit slower but you can add multiple countries for a trial contract.

Don't like the fact that you can change positions at 18yo. I mean, sure, it will help new people in the game who have picked a position like WF or ACM. But then when you're missing players someone can just change his position to whatever is needed and they can also adjust accordingly if they have SP. Completely nullifying any possible scouts the opponents have done and beating the purpose of having a position, making out of position penalties useless.

+1

Maybe give those 18 yo's with SP the chance to change their position only ONCE throughout their career?

I presume you can only change once? Otherwise it could be exploited, as Mini said.

Also just out of interest on this one, if that footballer has 5* AP in a position and then made their natural position the same position that they have 5* in, what would happen? E.g. if my SM (with 5* SD) changed to being an SD, would I then lose the AP? Not that I'm going to do that, just curious smiling

New Development. Eighteen years olds can now change position in a couple of clicks and with a supporters pass.

From Admin
* Adding the possibility to change position for 18 year olds with supporter pass. A feature that makes it possible to change position for 18 year old footballers in order to make it easier to get new users active and get more active teams more easily. The position a footballer has when a match is loaded (just before the match link shows roughly 10 minutes before the match start) will be the one used in the match we may add.

How does an 18 year old change position?

On the 18 year old character’s page click on the position.



Click ok and then select the desired position



Click set.

An 18 year old’s position with SP can be changed as many times as you like until he is 19 years old.

Once the desired position has be finalized you can then do as many adjustments you like to change the attributes as desired until he is 19.



Remember: 18 year old characters never ever have chemistry penalty no matter how many times they change teams.

This is why it's a bad idea.

I am going to try to stay open minded about this. Mini brought up a huge point of exploitation but I do see the value to new users coming into the game which would be the biggest benefit. Needing a supporters pass for this makes me wonder if that was the true target though unless it is included with the free one new users get.

It is of course included in the free Supporter Pass new users get. And the whole point is that a team should be able to be filled up with Central Forwards and then the users can discuss how to solve it and then get the team active by simply change their main positions. This will give all those new users who does not get a chance right now to test FID a way to be picked up anyway and hopefully test a match and see that basicly all positions are fun to play - just as IRL. It will also help out to get teams fully active without forcing users to play out of position in thin squads.

Overall the main idea is to give a tool to make it easier to get fully active teams and pick upp all users signing up and creating footballers.

It could be used in order to confuse opponent scouts yes, but weighting pros and cons against each other... Well I think the pros are clearly heavier than the cons. The damage an 18 yr old can do by changing position and readjusting the attributes is not that big compared to how it was before this latest change.I mean the CF could readjust into a CD and vice versa already and then the users could simply position themself accordingly during the match.

But this is our view.
