The game is a very good way to waste a few hours, but I am getting to the point now where I feel the game is becoming unplayable due to unrealistic wage demands.
For example, at the moment I can see 4 players on my "shortlist" that are rated "73"
Player 1 is getting £8,500
Player 2 is getting £6,300
Player 3 is getting £6,050
Player 4 is getting £7,050
If I put in any offer for them and get to the contract discussion stage with any of these players they are suddenly wanting at least 100k a week each.
In my team I have 2 players rated 73 currently. Player 1 is on £200,500 a week, with player 2 on £151,150
I can go to the "top" teams in my leauge (Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester Utd/City) and can see that they have players between 80-85 in ratings, on LESS than players I have rated 73.
If I try to buy one of those players they suddenly want £575k a week plus.
Any player or member of staff I try to sign will automatically be demaning 120k+ at low 70 rating, yet when they play for ANY OTHER club they very rarely hit 10k a wage with them.
How can this be justifed in the game, as the fee's being demanded specifically for my team seems to be ridiculous compared to everyone else. There are higher stature clubs paying a fraction of what I am, so it can't be linked to the stature of my club that way, nor can I be "too small" that I am having to over compensate with wages.
The other issue now is that any player I sell I then have to also give money to in lue of lost wages as I'm paying stupidly over the odds.
Will this be sorted and ammended, as at the moment I feel I've gone as far as I can with the game, as even though my wage budget is actually 2M HIGHER than anyone else in the league, I have the worst side in it, because I'm having to pay 10x the amount in wages as anoyone else.
