My understanding is that a player loses 3 points in every skill if playing out of position. If he is playing as -1, 0 or +1 is indifferent

Of course, if a player has 2 possible positions (DA, DM or MA) he can play in either without any penalty

A penalty also applies to sides (L, C, R), but if I recall correctly the penalty increases (1, 2, 3 points) the further from the original side the player is. Again, there are players with 2 potential sides (LR, LC, RC)

Vota no vasco para ele voltar dos inativos. Acabei de votar lá pra ajudar. Se soubesse, tinha votado antes e ele já tinha voltado nessa temporada…

Example of a good player that simply never got enough playing time to reach his potential

Those players are perfect for smaller teams who want to build a good squad cheaply – although it does take some effort to give those players some field time in the beginning

Happened to me with my GK in fast. Had never played a match before his 30s, got him on free transfer. Now he plays for England national squad…

My strategy is to give youngsters some playing time when the match is already won (e.g. ahead by 2 goals) and get them to slowly improve until they are good enough to attract interest from a CPU team to loan them

I like this trait for GKs when they are still young and improving. At least then, when I put them in matches to improve skills (always on the 2nd half), they won’t suck as much :-)

I prefer crazy suggestions when I have a low Negotiations investment. At least then I know it is a crazy suggestion and should trust my own judgment / be cautious. If the suggestion is somewhat realistic but is not necessarily what the player would accept, you might fall into a trap…

I disagree. Together with the positive traits, the negative ones bring some spice to the game. A great player might not be so great depending on the negative trait. Also, the trait may affect different teams differently (e.g. “plays worse on the second half” depends on whether the plan is to use the player in the first team or as a reserve) which is another interesting factor

I personally like the 6-ticks waiting period. As the player renews the contract if the offer is rejected, it is important to somehow limit the number of offers – it gives at least more chances for everyone to bid for players

I’ve mentioned this to Gabriel before, but just to put it here as well: as long as there is no limit on players developed in-house – that is, as long the limitation is just to acquire new players and not an obligation to sell players – we should at least try it…

Except players from inactive teams – those only age when the team is active

Gabriel, any updates status?

Sorry to keep bothering about this, but wanted to following up now that family members are also being used for “joint bidding” :-(

All players sold by Brazilian managers would be described as the next Neymar :-)

I think this would be a great improvement!

One thing to think hard about is that chance of acquiring a player that belongs to another human manager. This part is very debatable and would need to be done very carefully, with a lot of buy in from the community of managers….

It is starting to get annoying the number of transactions in which friends team up to bid for a player, making the player’s morale critical and sending him to the TL. I do not see much difference between this and creating 2 accounts to sell players from one to the other…

The higher price asked by CPU is a mitigating factor but is far from enough.

1) How about changing the rule so that the number of bids would not add up? What would matter for the player to decide to be transfer listed would be only the “highest” bid (not in amount, but in importance).

2) Or perhaps a tougher punishment on players from human managers with critical morale: if a human-managed player has a critical morale due to bids for other players, he goes straight to the TL, and morale would not change for 4 ticks unless the bid(s) is (are) withdrawn. Then the manager helping out a friend would have a lot at stake…

3) Last suggestion – which I do not like, but would be a mitigating factor – is unifying the transfer lists. At least then newly listed players would be out in the open for everyone to see. I do not like this because (i) it is the least effective, and (ii) it would make the game easier (managers that want to excel should be able to differentiate themselves by putting extra effort, such as by going from TL to TL)…

Taking a look at the game and remembering how it was before, I just wanted to leave my congrats to Gabriel and Danilo for the significant improvement over the past months:

- There is no “one dominant team”. Winners of national league and international cups are, in most cases, changing from one season to the other. This shows a high level of competitiveness has been reached

- Transfer lists are lively. There are plenty of good players being sold (although prices are high) and money has become useful again. Unlike in the past, however, there are not too many good players lying around – it is just necessary for clubs to buy and sell players

- Small clubs have a chance. While it is unrealistic to think one will win an international cup within 5 or less seasons in a club, uprising teams have a shot of building reasonably decent squads fast enough so they challenge the more established ones

There is still plenty to do and is nice to see that GC/DC have been adding new features almost on a weekly basis, but wanted to leave this encouragement note here for now :-)

Gabriel, in my latest national team match in Fast the match report shows that Anibal Ribeiro played (http://rubysoccer.com/match/report/5909366). However, he is no longer part of my squad and was not a part during that match (as you can see we are in the middle of the WC, I cannot change the squad). Weird…
