    Woooooo, FIFA 20!!!!!

    I remember the days when people on here used to think reaching 2016 on a CM story was a long way into the future. :joy:

    Looking forward to everyone’s stories seems to be a few new people as well finally decided on my career and I’m excited to get it started.

    I’m not getting the game until next Friday not buying the early release version as does make sense do you guys think I should leave starting the story until weekend and do a couple of updates during the week building up to it or just start it now?

    Up to you, if you are not getting it until the 27th I'd maybe start it this weekend if you are not planning on updating it for a few days from now. If it was me I'd probably just get it posted and add one more update in to drag it out

    I think it’s shaping up to be a banner year. Lots of good stories added late last year. Start of the year is the best time for them.

    I promise not to be that guy this year that starts 5 stories and never keeps them going 😂

    @JoshDFC I’d say do whatever man. Personally I’d probably wait a few days before I got the game. Then you can really run with it once you have it. Always tends to be something that throws a wrench in our original plans.

    @Stlducks, didn’t want to carry the conversation into your story so thought I’d bring it here. I’d say that FSG and Liverpool have already brought over elements of the “moneyball” approach with Liverpool the last few years.

    You look at some of there signings like Salah and Robertson a few years ago it was seen as a horrible transfer market for them. Two years later they are widely considered as top 3 players in there position 💁‍♂️ There’s more to it than just that but I think Liverpool have followed the moneyball approach and other teams are following suit as it’s more sustainable than what teams like City can do.

    I quite like the stories that run for a long time. My first story on here went 14.5 seasons 😂

    You are right, some teams have gone with this approach. I didn't mean Bean wants to be the first, he has just expressed interest in trying it. In interviews I have seen, he is a fan of the sport and wants to try his stats/analytics in soccer to expand from baseball.

    Also to add @Wyojasond I like how Bean's teams are always active in deals. Oakland never spend a lot but they are involved in trades or signings every window.

    I left a few years ago from the CM section because it was so dead. Glad to see some level of activity again.

    Still remember the FIFA 08-10 heyday where there were literally like 30-50 stories going at any given time.

    I remember the times when I'd update my story and then the next day the thread would be on the second page or even third

    Can see maybe 10-12 long term stories going on there a few others to bring it to around 20 we will see. I think some people are getting a bit sick of UT and are trying pro clubs and CM more so with the recent updates with the manager avatar and press conferences etc and dynamic potential with the addition of more scanned faces and Bundesliga makeover that should be more in than usual

    Yup. It's a shame really.

    When I was in my teens, you had a generation of career moders on here like Robalenko, R7R and others and we were the young ones.

    Now we're older and there is no next generation because of FUT so the activity has died down a lot.

    Personally, I detest ultimate team.

    Same. I played it a little late last year and I can see why people get hooked on it, but I got very bored with it. If anything I’d rather play seasons.

    May dabble with pro clubs this year.

    Pro clubs is only good if you either take it seriously and join a competitive team such as VPL or of you have a couple/few mates that you can go on and play with.

    I used to do all my careers on Operation Sports before I found this site. Careers on OS would be 20 pages deep and nobody but the OP commented. I like how it is much more involved here, even if the numbers have dropped.

    I don't think that's bad. At least you'll have a handful of dedicated people, making quality stories.

    I'm wondering if my results again will resemble reality. For the newbees, in my Ajax CM story in FIFA 19 I realistically achieved what Ajax did in real life, 6 months before it actually happened (title, cup, 1/2 final UCL). That's what I'm really curious about, if the levels are close to realistic again.

    Mine will go live the day yours reaches 15 pages. :)

    Whats his username these days?

    I'm sad I missed it. Pretty much left a few years ago and only looked at the CM section a few times a year for a while there
  • If I enjoy FIFA 20 then I might make a story. I tried all year, but I just couldn't get into FIFA 19.

    Let's hope the squad update is either ready now or in a few hours because a lot of teams are not updated yet, not starting the CM until it happens

    When does the EA Access 10 hours start? Was thinking it was 8pm PST for me, but maybe it’s 8am 😂 That’s in 20 minutes so yeah, hopefully they have that sorted.
