    There is nothing illegal nor unethnical about it. In fact is very common. It has become a money saving tactic that givs the player twice the time to improve the squad.

    Of cause jumping is not something new. I and everybody else has been awhere about this tactics from early levels. Not very pleasant to spot jumpers in the league in the beginning of the season, but some thing you just have to deal with.

    At higher levels (12 and above) this becoms more like the rule than the exception, and this of cause makes things more difficult. Right now I play at level 17 and in my league I have 7 newly jumped teams. Yes, not one, two or three, but SEVEN!!! Of cause my chances of winning the league this season is, if not impossible, rather slim. So I have to decide am I accepting the situation and just move on with slim chance winning any more leagues, or will I jump?

    It is not the players (jumpers) that is the problem, they are only adapting to the rules, it is the system.

    I believe Nordeus has to figure some thing out in this matter to make "Top eleven" survive and keep beeing a fun game after season 12. This is not the only problem higher level players will face. Other problems are lack of good players in the transfer list.

    So, should I jump or should I go?!?

    I agree "jumping" "bunkering" or whatever, is a good money saving strategy. And of cause everyone could/(and maybe should) take advantage of it if they are not prepered to spend 10-20£ a season. I just liked to create a debate regarding the subject.

    The crux of the matter is that in my league (level 17) I am competting with 7 jumpers. And I asked what I should do? Compete or just jump.

    no, to win the cup, better try to buy nothing one season and get promoted, sell all your player and buy 3* player---> buy scout, you can improve your first 11 about 10 Quality (15 if you buy scout) just the 1st day of season, and now your chance in the cup is gigatic as you are better than even token buyer at least 5 Q

    if someone could explain their reasons?
    If you are a non token buyer it becomes difficult to replace 7-8 players in a single go on a new season. It is way easier to do so tanking as whatever moment you spot a good youngster you can freely take him in and train, without worrying about him losing a star in few days. Even on day 28/28 a good young is still the best you'll find also next season. It works awesomeley when you're able to build a team of 18-19 yo fast trainers. My friend Baku storm stopped buying tokens and tanked one season with an average age of 19.2 years. The following season he had a full scout team with no expenses nor PT, this one hald of his team is high end 5* and the rest regained the scout levele. 3 seasons without buying a token, with 2 titles and 2 CLs.

    How to spot a jumper...
    A lot of people asks how you spot a jumper.
    First of all it is easiest to do in the beginning of the season. Generally "jumpers" start the campaign with a very good team most scouts and even world class.
    Then you look at the following seasons result (this you do by clicking on the players team). With a scout team (6 stars, 5 yellow and 1 red) it is fair to say you should finish among top 7, right? If the team didnt make the 7th spot they deliberately avoided advancing. At least competent players with 15 or more seasons of experience.
    You can find out a lot of things about other teams, like which date they where created and the trophies.

    Go hunt!

    I thought about tanking next season. Why? because my team wasn't that good, and, as a non buyer, i'm having problems replacing my players. Next season will be even worst, as several of my players will go down to 2 stars, and a bunch of them just reached 3 stars atm, meaning, they won't be able to get another star soon W/O power training. So i'll have to change 1/3 of the team, at least, and i can barelly buy a decent youngster ATM, for lack of money. I've been holding thanks to a good CL campaign, allowing me to buy a few decent players, but no fast trainers, so even these i just bought won't last me long.

    That said, i always thought i'd be having problems this season, and so far i'm doing quite well, so i might reconsider, depending on these last days.

    tanking has never occured to me... but i stopped buying tokens 2 seasons ago so as i reach the higher levels it may become a tempting option. so how would u do this? is is just a matter of simply playing an illegal formation for the entire season?

    Yeh like put a striker in goals and the rest in the forward positions. dont watch your games either and if your still struggling to be shite max your ticket prices, empty stadium no possession bonus
