    Lightbulb The Official Features Request Thread [CM15]

    While we try to make Champ Man the best game it can be, we are also aware that there may be a few things you would like to see added - Although we can't guarantee that any requested features will be made available in the game (mainly due to current technical limitations), we'll keep an updated list of the most heavily requested features in this thread.

    If you feel that we should consider something in particular, please provide as much explanation as possible as to how it would work. If it's a bigger feature that requires more explanation, it may be worth creating a new thread for it.

    Please note that we will not be adding a visual 2D or 3D match engine to the game.

    The following are features we are aware of and for which we are looking into possibilities with which to integrate them into the game:

    • Receiving offers from other teams to become their manager
    • Being able to resign from your current team and continue with another team in the same year (not restart in Jul 2014)
    • Cloud Saving and profile synchronization between devices
    • Transfer rumours in the league
    • International Teams and Cups
    • Save/Load starting 11
    • Additional Save profile
    • Nationality Filter (Advanced Search)
    • Player Comparison Tool
    • Increased Player Interaction (communications re. morale and playing time etc.)
    • Transfer Negotiation & options beyond accept/reject offer
    • Player trading during transfer
    • Additional Achievements and incentives, particularly for long term play (25/50+ seasons completed)
    • Additional reward conditions such as cash rewards for Manager Rating Level 25 /50+
    • Improved mail options, such as multi select and delete. Mail filtering.
    • Ability to schedule additional pre-season friendlies
    • Pending transfers and loans screen

    • Additional Leagues and Cups
      • Belgium
      • Mexico
      • Ukraine
      • Switzerland
      • Copa Libertadores de América

    • Additional Formations
      • 4321 - RB CB CB RB, LM CM RM, AM, CF CF

    Please note that we are unable to add the MLS to the game due to the strict legal restrictions in place for American players and teams.

    Just to ask if the whole managing feature is added would we see managers in game ?

    Also small features I would like.
    Direct Passing
    4312 formation to be exact ill post below.
    Morale to play more of a part meaning messages off players wanting game time or placed on transfer in other words interactions.
    Other features I want are mentioned by GD.

    Also about the CL/EL licenses are they exclusive rights to Konami? Would love official licenses for them in game.

    Thanks for the additions, morale could be quite interesting! I wonder if it might lead to the benched players just complaining all the time, particularly for people who always play with the same starting eleven and same subs...

    I'll ask about what's going on with the CL/EL licenses - it might very well be that Konami are the sole licenseholders for them. That being said, I'd expect UEFA to also want a substantial licensing fee...!

    Some ideas:

    - save different starting 11 to rotate the squad with greater ease

    - It would be easier to measure the influence of a player compared to its statistics if they were recorded as well as the goals and assists.
    To be clearer, to check the number of tackles, passes, dribbles, interceptions ect, since the start of the season and for everyone, this would increase the role of management, the most deserving in view of its statistics will play and be augmented, prolonged..

    General note goes in this direction but not far enough in my opinion, so this feature will allow to better judge about the attributes of each one

    PS; Sorry if you don't understand me, my english is pretty poor

    Welcome antoine, your english is very good , i like the sound of saving a different starting 11, this would be useful for me in cups when im a big club as i field out a weak team like man united do in real life.

    On the subject of saving, can we have at least 1 more extra save slot.

    Thanks for the feedback Antoine! I like the idea of one or two template starting 11's

    The request for that much added information is quite ambitious. I'm very much a data guy myself and love seeing all the different statistics, but I would expect a mobile device to perhaps start to struggle with recording and displaying that much information all at once. Still, I know some people have requested more player information to be recorded, particularly for goalkeepers, so it's not something to be dismissed!

    And btw, I agree with Craig, you speak English very well!

    I'm pleased to see that it would be benificial for the community I have also another suggest it is not really important but there are no possibility to find a player by his nationality, i mean in the advances searches because sometimes i want to discover players for one nationality and i can't.

    Might be interesting to add that in to the advanced search features... I've noted it above.

    I think champ man would really benifit from a more in depth scouting system for players, similar to that of Fifa, and u get a scouting network. I also think the academy system is really boring and bland at the moment, being able to scout youngsters over the courses of the seasons, and then promote them at the end of the season, or when they reach a certain age (again, u could learn a lot from Fifa)

  10. #10
    I was just thinking, I have never received a transfer offer for a player without them being on the transfer list!!! This is crazy, imagine how boring it would be in real life if teams only ever bought transfer listed players!!! Every clubq would stay the same!!!!! Plz add this!!!

  11. #11
    Getting reports on youth players and youth team\ reserve games would be cool, and I think we need to be able to adjust our wage budget (sacrificing transfer funds) and be able to request funds from the board. Kit numbers would be a nice touch as there is just a certain novelty about giving a new player or a youth player his first squad number on Fifa! Hope u consider all of my ideas, from this comment and the last few... Good luck!...

  12. #12
    Just seen some other comments and it made me think 'You can't c a player's height, weight or preferred foot!'. Finally, I would love it if players could interact with u (ask for more gametime or request a transfer)and last of all... Press conferences!!!

  13. #13
    Welcome to the forum fish I agree with the scouting system needing an overhaul and players interacting with you, but for press conferences would be nice but for a mobile game it would be to long and slow paced.

    So I've been playing a while now, and just got promoted to the premier league with Norwich (finished second in the championship): I would like to know how i am gonna qualify for the Europa league in my first bpl season and then qualify for the champions league in the next 3!!??? Why are the board targets so crazily high!??? This is ridiculous!!!!! Plz fix!!! I would really appreciate it if u could shed some light on this mr GDarcan... Also, player wages are kind of unrealistic, for example: at norwich, the game thinks John Ruddy earns 11.5 k a week, in reality he is one of our key players and probably earns at least 30k. Secondly: McNair of Manchester United starts off as 70 overall but with a wage of 73k!? How is a small team supposed to pay for his wages when loaning him? In reality, he earns about 15-20k a week!

    Today my 3 star penalty taker missed 2 penalties in the same match, and I haven't scored q penalty all season, even though I am half way through it!? The points a going all wrong too, its super hard to win a game as a lower side in the bpl, and the top clubs are running away with it far too easily. In my Norwich career, cardiff and derby were promoted with me... Derby have 3 points, Cardiff 5, and me 12 (and I am halfway through the season) plz sort these things out, coz its unreqlistically hard to keep Norwich up right now! In real life, 40 is the magic number in the prem to keep u up, on championship manager, I think u could do it with 25?!

    I know some girls that like football and they play the game what about the women's super league

  17. #17
    Targets set by the board do seem strange to be fair and need looked at, getting promoted from the championship to the EPL your more likely to get relegated unless you get decent players in, I was Leicester for 4 year and I got European football 2 years in a row, 1 was Europa league as I won the fa cup, so its not hard for the underdogs.

  18. #18
    But this was in my second season! The objective for any new team entering the premier league should be to stay up!!!

  19. #19
    A compare tool to put the stats of two players next to eachother would be handy, the average score thing is useful but a little limited.

    Lots to reply to - Welcome to the forums Fish and Dan!

    Advanced scouting system for young players: At the moment players age as the game progresses. This means that older players eventually retire and are replaced by newly-generated young players. The young players are randomly generated - that is to say that they are assigned names only when getting created in the real game. Therefore they don't exist as such prior to coming up through the academy and as a result of that they also don't have a 'history' over which you can track them long-term prior to their getting promoted. To be able to add scouting for youngers as they come up I think a lot of work would have to be put in on the backend system.

    Transfer List: Sorry, could you confirm whether you're asking us to completely remove the transfer list system?

    Adjusting Wage Budget: We won't implement a direct swamp between wage and transfer budget. To do so would make having two different budgets pretty pointless. In my personal mind, it would also remove the challenge of having to balance your wage budget which is an integral part of the game. That being said, you can increase your wage budget by upgrading your commercial advisor.

    Additional player information: Some things might be useful to be added but certain other information is probably to obscure to be officially known. Finding out the height of premier league may be straight forward enough, but once you get into the second and third leagues in certain countries where English (Our researchers primarily research in English) information is scarce, that information may be to big of an effort to lock down for no real reward. Primary foot might sounds interesting though

    Increased Player Interaction: Added above!

    Regarding your other comments Fish - each team comes with it's own challenges, meaning that some teams will be easier to manage and achieve board targets over other teams. In particular, I'd have to say that the most prominent teams in a country with the biggest budgets and best players will be easier to play with while slightly smaller teams will provide a bigger challenge. I'll ask the team to take a second look at board targets however.

    I'll ask our team about the wages you pointed out.

    @Dan - Women's super league could be interesting - It's something for which we'd have to consider how many people would play the women's leagues ultimately. I'll certainly raise it with the folks here.

    I like the idea of a compare tool Sardit! Only issue I could see with that is the limited screen space mobile devices offer, but it's certainly something to consider.

    Regarding getting sacked or resigning and continuing where we currently are if this is implemented i think we should stay unemployed until job offers come along or we apply for jobs, hoping straight onto a team means we could destroy top teams and hop back on to our main team which would be cheating in a way.

    A minor feature which should be easy to do for a teams page is a form bit like WwLLd, caps mean home and not caps mean away, only because if im playing a team i would love to see if there on form or not then i can adjust my tactics accordingly.

    new leagues like ukraine grece belgium denmark swizerland austria croatia romania serbia the mls or mexico should be included

  23. #23
    Welcome to the forum maclemore, regarding the mls please se the bottom of the arcans post, i agree i would like to see the belgium league added.

  24. #24
    We have the reasons why our bids are rejected which was a nice addition but when we keep bidding and getting rejected its like they don't want to sell the player, we should have another message about them not wanting to sell the player maybe for several reasons, valuable member, rival club, only just joined etc.

    Sorry about the late reply - regarding additional reasonings, have you experienced this with most players or just a few? Certain clubs may have a certain player who is exceedingly difficult to buy, oftentimes because the club is relatively small and wouldn't have anything without said player (as Odegaard was previously).
