    Young player from academy rant !

    I am so upset about waiting for young players to be ready from the academy and then come to realize that I have to pay 24 tokens to sign him . When I already waited so long for them... I was so disappointed to find that out..

    What do you guys think?

    Look at it this way . Liverpool have a youth player they have had since he was eight years old .... By the time he hit's ( 18 or is it 16 ? ) they have to give him a contract .... which involves MONEY . In this instance its tokens
    no info for you my watchers :P

    Cheaper, yes, but a better, faster trainer, most likely no.

    Power train your token youngster and he will be on your team for at least 6 seasons, and most likely more.

    If you build your practice facility, you can get 7 rests every 4 days, a rest as a gift each day and the rests for making subs during matches. So, if you use your rests wisely, you can power train a youth or two and keep them for a long time without spending another token on them.

    If you buy older players, you have to replace them every season or two. If you spend 5 to 8 tokens per player every other season to win them at auction, you will wind up spending about the same amount of tokens over the long run.

    Just something to think about...

    i'm sure you tell yourself you're a bright lad when you wake up in the morning. tell me, when liverpool sells said youth player, they get money, don't they? something close to, or perhaps more than what it cost them to sign said player. when you sell your youth player in top eleven, how many tokens do you get?

    About the price, 24 tokens are much, but at certain players (good performers, multiple position players) it can make sense in higher levels (top of server). In lower levels normally the regular transfer markets offers better deals and the youth acdemies only use is IMHO offering some income by the 2* player that can be sold (due to the 2* quality I made good experiences to build the academy in level 3 in order to find customers for the youngsters).

    I have an idea here about the Youth Acadamy for Nordeus to solve.
    Just ask Tokens to build Youth Facilities & ask money to sign the youths from Acadamy.

    How do you think?

    That is a nice idea. It is in real football where the costs to establish and run a youth academy are high, while getting the players out of it is not.

    it depends i got a 24 token striker that with that price should have been a fast trainer, well like hell was he won`t be doing that again i`d rather train non token player and sell on first day of season,

    on the other side i get 4* player and my squad is almost world class and 90% are 21 and younger so not worth me getting youth as that is a hell of lot green packs to get close to squad rating, BUT if Nordeus gave them a special ability then they might be worth signing and training

    edit; i don`t mean give all youth like non token a special ability i mean the most expensive token one`s say the 21 and 24 token youth an ability

    The Youth Academy has spit out some good players for my team, and I hate bidding wars.. so I *like* my academy, but for most it won't be as helpful until further up in the levels where competition for good players is fierce.
