By nation where people are playing in the game it varies from 38.8% to 7.7%

More than half of all logins in the last month have been in Eng/Aust, increases to over 70% when you inc India

Last 30 days of revenue from Sales 81.5% from Eng/Aust

And please this is not me complaining about people in other countries not spending money
I completely understand that in many nations the disposable income is not what it is in the other 2 countries
I live on disability myself and make a little extra cash working for the family, so I understand a little but I would still have a far easier existence then many people around the world.
I am grateful for whatever people can afford to spend, like any business would love for it to be more but for too long the game has gone unattended and we need to win back those who felt disillusioned by that. The game will always be free to play as it is today with additional features for members but it will also rely on those that buy membership so those who can't can still enjoy the game

I'm so incompetent and disorganised that I need all the perks membership can get me.

I fully understand that the majority of sales are in AUS/ENG. That should be a given with their overall numbers.

What I am asking is relative to the active manager numbers for the main nations, what is the percentage of premium members across each nation?

Is there not a level of consistency across nations regardless of population size?

With regards to South Africa as a country, despite it having a population of around 60 mil, keep it mind that it has a real unemployment rate of 58% while the majority of workers are very low wage. The minimum wage is something like US$200 pm. You also just have to look at the lacking attendance with major sporting events to notice how the country is struggling.

If you want to grow the game then you will need to look into some mobile adjustments as far more people have access to smartphones and wireless internet access than PCs.

You made my point for me, I understand that Aus/Eng are amongst the more wealthy nations with higher disposable income
Only a third of the teams are based in Aus/Eng combined by the way when you talk about their overall numbers

The active member numbers is this line in my earlier response, I wouldn't say it was consistent
By nation where people are playing in the game it varies from 38.8% to 7.7%
Yes mobile functionality is on the agenda and we will start on that soon
Just over 50% use mobile, 42 odd use pc/laptop and 7 odd % use tablet
Also different payment methods may help also, paypal is popular but not the only one we should have

Hi all ,

I have a question wrt the default ground capacity change . Whom do you categorise as new player . My team is over 1 month old in the system and i am mulling increase in ground capacity . However I dont know whether my ground will be upgraded automatically to 8k without spending from club finance .

Cheers

Any ground under 8k will be automatically updated to 8k at the EOS

That would be a substantial benefit to new teams which have not increased ground capacity yet.

Should there perhaps be looked at a refund for new teams that have incurred the expense to do so in the last few weeks ?

That would be appreciated. I upgraded my ground from 6000 to 7500 14 days ago, and it would be nice not to be leapfrogged for being proactive and increasing my groundsize twice already.

I have updated the announcement to say we will reimburse those teams who upgrade this season if they were below 8000 to start with. And they will only be reimbursed the cost to 8000 should they chose to go bigger.
