On the main page it was counting down from 30 minutes which i refreshed during that time many times to check transfer list and other stuff , which then i realised match is already played and i wasnt able to change my team because i was waiting for my training players to finish so i could add them to line up.
@bobghost01 Hello Bob & welcome to the Global forum
Please do me a favor and next time you loggin to your account go to >> Community >> click on Simulation time >> and tada !
You will see with your own eyes this: link text
In other words you can check the progress of your league's server at any time.
That page and screen shot also tells us that the OSM engine begins with the sims at 19.00 pm - Dutch time .
Personally I just try to be set and ready to go around that sim time ( converted in my Greek time that is )
Why we cannot guarantee the exact simulation kick off for you?
Well either because of urgent works from the game developers on the site ( bugs messing up our game ) that can bring some delay or more often because there are far too many different servers and leagues , old and new ones created at any moment.
Therefore, the simulations cannot be at all times 100% precise.
Just think of the thousands of different leagues and millions of managers trying to set their tactics and strategic plans , and in fact lots of them do it at the last minute. Big, huge mistake if you ask me. Please avoid rush hours, it is advised for all OSM managers.
But the game developers are constantly working on the improvement of the OSM and if you take a look at this topic you can find out about the latest updates of the game , including one about the timers : https://forum.onlinesoccermanager.com/topic/5035/game-updates/64
Thank you for your post and for your understanding.
