flash82 Posted February 21 Report Share Posted February 21 Hey everyone. I've been using FMRTE off and on for years, but only as an improved tool for scouting players. Since I like to spend my time on career games, where I try to take a club from a lower league to the top of the respective nation, I love the challenge and patience more than editing stuff quickly would provide. The use of outside information such as the FMRTE player search feels more than cheat enough to be successful anyway. But on to the topic of this suggestion: FMRTE has a decent search interface to find people in the game, with all kinds of filters to find just the player(s) you want, bar one of the most important options. One that exists in principle, but is incomplete. I'm talking of player regions, which is only partially implemented by the "EU National" checkbox. There are various leagues around the world with rules restricting the number of players (not) of a specific country, or where work permits are either difficult to get or financially not feasible. Take any of the UK & Irish leagues for example. The first career game I started in the latest FM23 was at a Scottish lower league club in the EoS Premier (6th division unlocked with an editor file). For at least the first few promotions you're managing a semi-professional club with all its inherent limitations. Work permits aren't practical in that financial situation, so all these clubs are limited to sign players with specific nationalities. Only, FMRTE doesn't allow you to perform a search like that. If I wanted to find all players that I could possibly play without having to spend money on a work permit, I'd have to execute separate searches for players with the nationalities of England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, North Ireland, Anguilla, Bermuda, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Gibraltar, Montserrat as well as the Turks and Caicos Islands. The same is true for other leagues. In South Korea for example, you're only allowed to play 3 foreigners, but players from other Asian nations are excluded from that. Brazil currently doesn't consider players from Haiti or Syria as foreigners for their eligibility/registration. Over the years I've come across several more with special rules like that and most can easily be disregarded, because it would be work for a tiny audience, if one exists at all. Except for the UK, Ireland & Territories of course! After Brexit this seems like a major feature that's missing from FMRTE.
