  • old players will become weaker slightly faster than before as they become older

  • release clause now appears only very rarely and with 100% of the market value and not just with 50% 
  • huge talents can now only be loaned without a buy option

  • players are now correctly presented during presentations and introductions (e.g. in the stadium)

  • players without a contract which enter the game at a later point of time now also have correct contracts and entries in the player history
  • if a manager resigns from a big club and then gets an employment at a smaller club, his salary will now be more realistic and not as high as before
  • drag-and-drop now works well in the “fast lineup” screen
  • first team: drag-and-drop sorting will be maintained
  • Text mode: cards that are dealt the same minute as goals will not be shown under goals
  • chance bars in the text mode conference now act according to the games’ events

  • 3D: club anthem is not played during national team games
  • 3D: club names are portrayed correctly in all options
  • 3D: radar remains visible even when switching through different modes
  • maintenance costs for youth camps are now also calculated correctly for AI teams; AI now also recruits more players from their own youth camps
