    Cost of scouts

    Much like there is a scout value and how much you have to pay $$$ for the scout, there should be a difference in tokens. For example, a 28 year old scout of lower quality (ending in 1* or 6*) should be much cheaper, maybe 20 tokens, and then depending on the player up to 50 tokens for those top scouts. This would help players like me who are at the top of their server and NEVER see any 5* players on the transfer market and hardly even 4* players.

    i don't think so. what do you thing a 5* with specialiste Q X4 and X9 cost in some first day bidding war ? and you ask it cost even less than that. and with only 200 TK you have a full scout team. that will kill the game immidiate, it 'd better rise the price of scout up, when you see less scout in the game, the game is more interesting. Ofcourse there is a optimal value, but i think 50 is near it.

    My point was that there should be a disparity rather than that 50 tokens is too much. If they want to charge 70-80 tokens for a 22 year old ST with one on one scorer, I have no problem with that but asking 50 tokens for 29 year old defenders PK specialist who just turned to 6* is too much. I would make the list that would have players ranging from 20 to 50 tokens. If they do it 20-80, I would still like that much more than every player costing 50.

    My proposal would also help 35T teams which cannot afford any scouts at the moment but if there was an older scout for 20 tokens, they could buy one once in awhile and enjoy that feature of the game.

    Scoutinglist is a good Idea as it is, but how about if you pay for a Scout and he show you three players around 18-20 with 6-4 Stars and you could choose to buy them? Wouldn't that be a better way of scouting if you can only send a scout maybe something like 4 Times a Season and he always come with an offer of three players? The Scout could cost 100 Token the players cost only money.

    i don't see any reason for a 35T to spend his 20 tk in a scout, better spend on a young player, 4* and he will be scout at least 3-4 season for you.
    you proposition just made it easier to have scout and a normal player can now buy a full team of scout each season with 200T(very easy to farming for many player) and now your 35T have no chance againt this team

    The problem then, is that every year or two someone buys a whole new team of old scouts for 200T.

    What would make your suggestion worthy is if there was a difference between how a 22yo scout plays compared to a 30yo scout.
    Right now they are exactly the same except for one thing: training speed.

    Now throw this into the mix: 27-28yo in real life are at the prime of their career. They usually have their best years at these ages. Go figure that Nordeus, in their infinite wisdom, has training speed set to deteriorate significantly at those ages. JUST LIKE REAL LIFE...NOT!

    All this to say, for playability, they could make 22-23yo scouts play better than 29-30yo scouts and this could result in scouts aged 29-33 being sold at 10-20T depending on the age and probability on retirement.

    I understand what you guys are saying but don't forget that I included quality in my '20 T player'. So this player just turned 6*, his improvement will be so slow that he will be 5* next year, 4* the following year (maybe close to 5*) and then maybe even retire or just turn 4* the year after.

    Also, I don't think there is going to be an infinite number of 20 token players, maybe 2-3 and then gradually increasing to 50 tokens. Overall maybe 15-20 scouts so to buy the whole XI you would need around 350-400 tokens (needed positions to fill XI will not always be available for 20-25 tokens).

    I don't think it would make the difference between the poor and the rich even bigger but I guess we will never know for sure.

    I do think that it would make the game more interesting for people with 35T (my sub account) or those with horrible servers (my main account).
