FM2013: Premier League table 6 months in


Recommended Posts

pretty much sums up the FM experience. i know the prem table is pretty boring in reality, mostly the same every year, but there has to be some realism in there. chelsea 15th? everton 17th? norwich 6th? arsenal top? far too many teams in places they could only have dreams/nightmares about.

its only half a season though, maybe it will even out by the end of the season. or liverpool will be in trouble.

edit: wait, fake players? does that even make your table relevant? I take back everything I said.

I used fake (generated) players because this is my genuine game. I always use fake players and always go on holiday for one year so I get some decent match stats etc and to give entropy a chance!

Just to confirm, Liverpool got relegated, in 18th place, along with West Brom and Wigan. Man U won the league.

I'm running a game now on manager holiday with real players. I'll report back later.

Why dont you just use the real players, retire and then let the game just run for 20 or so seasons then all of todays player are replaced with new ones.

I would if I saw any extra benefit in that. Plus, it would take longer to save and load games.

Look at the current table

WBA 6th

Liverpool 14th

West Ham 8th

These things happen in the real world too

Well it seems using real/fake players makes a difference, as that table is far more realistic than the original post....

Not necessarily, this is just one season you're basing your decision on. Although he played with fake players all the fake players should be of a similar level to the real if real players found in the real teams. Unless of course if there is a bug, which is always a potential issue as this is a beta.

But, just as an example... On one of my previous FM (I think FM11) Arsenal got relegated in about 2015. They were relegated with the following great players in their squad, Fabregas, Nasri, Sanga, Diaby, Clichy, RVP and Bentdner (Ok, I put Bentder in as a joke). Still I remember it well as I went on a mission to sign all those players for my recently promoted Blackburn side.

So wierd things can happen with the real players too!

P.s. No I don't have evidence as this game was saved on my old laptop.
