    Season 23 Level 21 Cup early exit

    This will be an extremely memorable season as it would be the first time I would be playing less than 50 games in a season.

    The player that eliminated me had a brand new team when he faced me 1st leg. Fresh off auctions. No player in his team had played more than 2 matches in all competitions. If you have a look at his team through associations, you will see what I mean. I am embarrassed to lose to a team like that with his highest whites only in the 110 range.

    The system tactically outclassed me and made his goalkeeper god which eventually won him the MOM. I would credit the system rather than him primarily because he was not present to manage his team. While he might have made the right setup prior, I made adjustments in real time to counter him which was very much not factored into the game. Or I may have made all the wrong decisions during the match lol. Doubt so.

    He attended the 2nd leg, I won but couldn't get 2nd goal needed to send the game into overtime. I believe I did make some mistakes for the matchup but there is no denying the system favored him. No complains as the system has favored me before against stronger opponents so it's fair game.

    Hopefully all goes well for CL and league. I have similar quality opponents in CL so there is always a possibility for an upset.

    Season 23 Level 21 End of Season Summary

    Competitions

    FC Silly - My Experiments, Experiences and Accomplishments as a Non Token Player-screenshot_2021-06-20-03-10-18-415_eu.nordeus.topeleven.android.jpg

    Other than my early exit in cup, no surprises for all other competitions. Bad season statistically due to 2 losses and 2 draws. Frankly I would have lost all competitions had they not fixed the display issue showing only 3 last matches instead of the usual 5. All 4 games that I failed to win was during that stretch.

    Not all players were affected and some did admirably well so perhaps the fault lies with me. Been told that I should have done this and that. Lots of good and some debatable advice. All appreciated. In all honesty, I too am guilty of thinking managers are at fault when they lose. But when I lose, I blame the engine. Lol, so understandable that some managers I spoke to felt I was lacking. All I can say is what goes around comes around

    Diamond is tough. My association is barely hanging on with 981 points as I write this and if we survive, it would be by some stroke of luck. We finished 3rd, 2nd, 4th and 3rd for the 4 tournaments and completed the event.

    Personally, I lost to many teams that were of a lower quality but they had players with much higher whites. I ended up 4th best in my association after finishing 2nd best last season. Did my best in terms of training bonuses and attendance which my association mates can attest to.

    Opponent purchases a full team of scouts

    My first time experiencing it. I always had some opponents who purchase 1-3 scouts but never a full team. He is a familiar opponent whom i have played against for many seasons. Not totally inactive and one of the few people who has occasionally supported my opponents.

    After noticing him, i quickly double checked all other competitions and it seems we will only face each other in the cup finals if we make it. My impression is he had to save for many seasons to buy this team and i wish him all the best.

    What’s my plan

    Nothing special, may the best man win. I will do my best against him without committing more resources than originally planned. After spending more than 600 tokens and an advantage in overall quality, he should be the favourite. Lets see, should be an interesting matchup.

    Lol. My friend is playing game without watching ads. His team is 65-85% throughout the season. One guy in his league, cup and cl has already jumped his team AvQ to 117% with buying brand new 11 scouts that should cost approx. 600-700 tokens. He could also use refresh button to get many 22 y.o players. So no luck for him. Better to try next time.

    Season 24 Level 22 End of Season Summary

    Competitions

    My league and cup had threats this season. Both had 6 star opponents but i am happy to report that there were no upsets. As expected, the Cup finals was between me and a full scout team I mentioned in an earlier post.

    I did invest quite a fair bit of greens this season as I have started to replace aging attackers. While keeping my older attackers might help me lower my quality and provide me with much higher whites. I noticed a dip in performance for my main competitions so I'd rather not risk it.

    It's my second season in diamond and it is much easier this season. This does make sense as the stronger teams are now in ultimate. Did well enough to secure promotion
