Take a look at the replay of Belgium – Brazil.
Djamba (Belgium) is playing against his own country. He has a red dot in stead of a blue one like his teammates have. :-)

This must be a new wonder of the world. My striker in mediumticker is 37 y.o. and he starts increasing skills like he’s found his second youth. :-D
In the meanwhile he’s also decreasing other skills. Lol.

I’m also thinking I see an increase of injuries in my team this season. Maybe because most of them are in their 30s this season?

Did I miss something? I did a couple of bids in mediumticker and the negotiation screen tells me there are 4 turns left. I thought 3 was the maximum?

So it’s possible a player needs more than one season to unlock those skillpoints. Some national teams will only play 1 or 2 matches each tournement.
A manager is very dependant of the tactics of the national team manager.
My keeper De Gea is one of the best keepers in fastticker but Spain has 3 wonderful Gk’s. So it’s not unrealistic he won’t play. Spain can also be unlucky and eliminated after 1 match.

Wouldn’t it be better if the players who have ‘to play for his national team’ just unlock their skill by being selected or playing international friendlies? Their time with the best players of their country would already be instructive.

“Players needs to play for his national team”. Does it include international friendlies or only the cup matches? My goalkeeper hasn’t increased skills yet.

I was wondering why there isn’t a trait “plays better/worse against teams of same class”.
Could be a nice one for A teams competing each other.

I mean if you are an A team and you have a player with the trait players better/worse against better team this trait is neutralised because there aren’t such teams right?

I am rebuilding my team and 5 players developed the treat ‘uses more stamina’. Quite frustrating if 2 are keyplayers and a 3th one could become one.
Can I get one more substitution? :-)

I noticed sometimes it stays preset and sometimes it resets itself.

I use mobile and laptop. Maybe the laptopversion doesn’t recognize a player position when it’s opened on mobile and vice versa?

Could it be broken again? Looks like the player positioning resets itself again when another player us set on that particular position.

Great job! Congrats!

You may also thank your goalkeeper but the shot efficiency of Barreto made the difference.
Next season you can concentrate on making your team stronger to compete with a giant like Bristol.
Good luck!

I rather prefer the option to train players from L to LR or LRC.

For me players with a double position like DM or AM have more value in the game. They have to be rare to find. If everyone can change players to a double position a key aspect of the game gets lost.

One exception could be if a player has a secondary skill of an other position (def, pas, sho) that’s higher than his primary skill he should be able to be trained to a new position.
F.e. A defender with D85 and M 94 could become a M or DM afer serious training.

Thanks Gabriel. This explains a lot. I didn’t know the impact is that big.
Another example:
“Nórton Nobre has rejected your contract proposal (wage: $227,000). He was hired by KV Oostende (wage: $114,160).”

Can a hiring bonus overrule a difference of more than 100k? Makes it almost impossible for small teams to hire players of the free transferlist.
I already regret I sold my key players. :-)

I know but I have a C class team now. I do think Inter is way better at the moment and has better strikers.

Hello

Could someone please explain me the negotiation rules of (free) listed players again.

I did a bit on this player with no specific priority. My bid seemed to be higher but he went to Marseille. How is this possible?

“From: Assistant 
Subject: Negotiation failed 

Maximino Cantina has rejected your contract proposal (wage: $77,335). He was hired by Marseille (wage: $65,000)."

If he had a priority I would understand.
Does someone has an explanation?

Coutinho was listed for 120M and left for 90M.
Alcantara was listed for 75M and will probably leave for 40M.
So send an ingame message and we discuss the price…

Since Malaga was eliminated sooner then expected in CL by a good playing PSV the Malaga manager decided it is time let some star players go . He wants to give youngster a chance to become next generation star players of Malaga.

For an honnest price all listed players can leave. Some still are amongt the best in fastticker.
Grab your chance.

You need to evaluate the effects for sure.
I mean at the moment it is harsh to see a topplayer on the transferlist (for a long time) but he doesn’t want to sign.
Maybe a significant salary increase could be a possibility to persuade such a player. Significant would be +75% till + 100% of the normal salary he would ask.

An other possibility is a new profile.
I’m thinking about Paulinho of Barça. He played for Tottenham, then went to China and comes back to play for a top club like Barça.
Or the Belgian Witsel who had a bright future to become a real top class player in Europe but he chose for the money, first in Russia and later in China. Result: he only became a good player and no real top class player.

So you could create a profile like:
- doesn’t want to play for squad with too many players of his home country, except if it’s a top class team
- doesn’t want to play for squad with too many players of his home country, except if it’s a lower class team
- wants to play abroad, except for a top class team in his home country
- wants to play abroad, except for a lower class team in his home country
- wants to play in his home country, except for a top class team abroad
- wants to play in his home country, except for a lower class team abroad

Couldn’t it be possible that a player expectation changes during their career.

I did a bit on Franz Beckenbauer (CRB) and he refused because he thinks there are too many players from his Country (Spain) in my team. Could be possible since Malaga is in Spain. :-)
It’s good to see great players point to other countries than their home country.
But maybe they can change this expectation in the last years of their carreer. They want to come back to their home country or …

Thanks for your explanation.
He accepted my offer so I hope he stays happy. I need him to score goals.

Gabriel I got this expectation with a contract negotiations of my attacker.

“Kostas Gazis is expecting a higher than usual wage. He thinks your team has too many players from his country.”

There are only 2 Greeks in my team, he and a midfielder. I don’t think these are too many on a total of 30 players.
Is this a bug? Or is the expectation made in percentages? In this case more than 5% = too many

I haven’t tried it myself but I guess you could make an event substitution.
Something like:
“In any match, when the event is Injured Defender, replace the player on the position where the event happened by Dennis Troost”

This was an issue which was mentionned before. The skill decrease after 30 was there from the very beginning of the game. The different improve profiles came later. So players with a profile of full improvement on 30 were already loosing their skills again.
It has been fixed by the devs a couple of seasons ago but only for new players.

Since you’re playing in mediumticker there will be older players that still have this crazy improve profile.
Be happy you have such a player. They will be extinct in short notice. ;-)

Both my goalkeepers have a negative trait “bad on pk”. He stays one of the best gk in fastticker. So I don’t consider it as worse in league competition or international matches with home and return. My strikers only need to score one more goal. :-)
I only consider it as negative in Cl Final or Club world cup when it comes to penalty kicks after 90’. I have lost them on pk’s.

Imo the national team is not a better competition. They meet a couple of days yo play a match and the players join their own teams aigain. They don’t train tactics like they do in their own team.
You don’t see the best football in national team competition. The best football is played in Champions league.

You can loan out these players but a striker would become man of the match easier than a goalkeeper.

I changed teams in mediumticker the past season and I am making coach reports of my players right now. I haven’t seen them in fastticker but here they are: weird next improvement steps “Play for National Squad”. I find this kind of ridiculous. In real life a player won’t become better because he plays for the national team. Most of the players won’t make it to the national team.
A player becomes better when he plays in a better competition or in a better team.

My player won’t be selected for his national squad because he simply is not good enough. So I need to become the manager of the national team and select him so he can play some friendlies. I don’t think this is the reason of being of a national team.
Another weird next improvement step is “Man of the match”. Why would a player become better when he’s man of the match. This would only make sense if it’s inproving his moral or pressure handling but not his player skills.

Don’t get me wrong, I like the improvements but some are more logical then others. Keep up the good work!

Ok. Thanks. I didn’t remember this was a consequence of the forced transfers.

Did I miss something? I can’t find the morale of my players anymore.
