    @Ado-Hackovic said in Bundesliga statement:

    It has been almost two years since you prevented us from playing one of the strongest leagues in the world - the Bundesliga (I am not counting the German version, but the world version). Although we initially complained about this, you did a couple of months ago, that we can't buy Bundesliga players. As a "consolation", you introduced a special Bundesliga with strange names such as Duvaus, Alibi, Nuuuur, etc. What is the purpose of such names? I don't want Duvaus, I want Davies. Do you think that this is our (Bundesliga fans) consolation? Even from the German OSM moderators, we did not hear an opinion on this topic, did they initiate something to bring the Bundesliga back? Will the Premier League, Serie A, and other top leagues move in this direction (the Premier League is in the PES like the Bundesliga here)?

    I think the time has finally come to solve this problem.

    @language-DE

    Sure. Go ahead and solve it.

    Me? Should I solve this ?? How?
    I am not the owner of GameBasics, I am not employed by GB, I am not an OSM Admin, I am an ordinary "mortal", and we "ordinary mortals" can do nothing but ask these at the top to do it for us.

    What problem do you have with me?

    How can you tell me this?

    As member of honour you should to be a little kinder to us. Most Germans that I know are, but you... I dont have no more words.

    I'm not part of the German team, but I reply anyway.

    This is a legal rights issue. It's not something that can be easily solved. Even Konami has problems getting licenses for using the real names of leagues and players for their Pro Evolution Soccer-games, and that company is a lot bigger than Gamebasics. Same goes for EA Sports, who lost the license to use the real name of Juventus, their outfits and stadium in FIFA 20.

    @FC-Eddie_NL I know that very well. Since two years we cant play in Bundesliga (i dont speak about german and probably dutch version). Since several months we cant buy a bundesliga players. When it comes to license money, GB certainly has it. Even some Bayern Munich, AC Milan, the Dutch league were sponsors of GB. Are they even now, I don't know. You said, "It's not something that can be easily solved." I know that very well, but @Luls-L doesn't seem to know. Say him.
    Best regards

    @Ado-Hackovic you said that it is finally time to solve this problem. When you post something like that I expect you to have the solution to the problem.
    You link the german speaking community here, but most of them dont have all these problems, because they can play Bundesliga.
    When there were problems with Premier League and there was no such League available for me, I would not play a primera League with teams like Livemypool or something like that. In that Point I am on the same side as you are. But if the owner of the game tells me that there are license issues I can understand that.
    Of course it is easy to say. I want to play, pay for it. But do you really think GB is doing this for fun? They sit around and think about how to bully their users? If you have a Footballmanager like osm or others, I cant think of many things that can be worse for you as the owner to not have all licenses, because this will sadden your users.
    I dont know how these licenses work, do you? If so, please explain it to me. Maybe I can understand you better then.
    Since german users are able to play Bundesliga, I think that they want the licenses to be paid for every language that you want to offer it to. Maybe with Premier league it is different. I don’t know. But what I know is that GB ain’t doing this for fun, because you loose attraction to new users if you don’t have all licenses.

    @Luls-L Can you play battle in Bundesliga?

  • Member of Honour

    @Ado-Hackovic right now, I play a battle in England, next is Belgium. So now. As far as I know, I won’t be able to play a battle in Germany any time soon. But that doesn’t concern me much. GB is choosing the countries where battles are played. Even if it were possible to play battles in Germany I could play like 2 or 3 battles and then wait 7, 8, maybe 9 months until it is chosen again to play battles there. For me the leagues where we as a user can choose where we want to play are more essential, but I get that you would like to play some battles in Germany too.
    As i said. Less attractive for old and new users. So definitely no decision to fool around with the users to not have Bundesliga available.

    We were getting a lot of reactions to the removal of the Bundesliga in OSM. That's why we want to inform all of our managers about what happened here.

    Before, the Bundesliga clubs could be coached by every manager in OSM.

    Unfortunately, the Bundesliga is now only available in the German language. This is due to a legal issue with the Bundesliga.

    Sorry for the inconvenience and thanks for understanding!
    bhhhhh


  • @FC-Eddie_NL Was this an issue on OSM 2.0 or is this an issue when OSM started to use real emblems and faces of players?

    Poor issue, we should change bundesliga into hundesliga (Hund = dog).

    But there is a light in the end of tunnel,
    you can get the best german player now in the premier league (it´s not Draisatl 🏒 congrats by the way ).

  • German Users

    I have a question about this. And indeed - is there a possibility that we can play the Bundesliga normally again in every version and buy Bundesliga players? Are you negotiating with the responsible office?

    It's strange that it's been two years since we haven't played a Bundesliga. For a few months now we have not been allowed to buy any Bundesliga players, except Bayern players.

  • German Users

    I see, there has been no answer to this question for a month and a half. However, I have another question. How did the Bundesliga allow you to use the real names of the players in the new league you added?

    How is it possible that you are allowed to use real names here and not in the Bundesliga?

    @ado-hackovic Most likely apart of an agreement with Bundesliga. It was probably where Bundesliga would let GB use the teams and players, but the League is only available in Germany.
