    Question Auctions or negotiations

    I have just been promoted to level 4 and the negotiations are unlocked.
    Which way of bringing new players to my team is better in your opinion?

    Look at how many tokens you actually spent, on average, per player?
    Look at how you bid, at busy and inactive times?

    Consider the experience of the player you want to bid for?
    Finally, look at the token cost when bidding?

    In my experience, auction, saves you tokens, negotiations gets you experience.

    Suggestion: make online friends, level 5,6,7,8,etc and know when to use then to approach with a bid....just before they become a 6 star or scout player.

    Goto the Negotiations tab, click on the player, if the price is okay, you accept it and get the player..
    Expressed above is my own opinion. Your results may vary.

    if you dont mind paying the middle man, go for negotiations. as dizzee said you get a nearly instant 6*
    if you prefer auctions, wait til the 2nd week and place 1 token bids on some players, youre bound to win a few

    For 4 seasons, the Auction has served me well. I tried a couple of Negos during Level 4 but didnt get any accepted by players 3-4 Level above me. I suspect they play via mobile or are not playing anymore. Gave up negotiating. I bought one from the scout list that season and he has served me well.

    It's all a matter of preference.

    If you have patience and some tokens, buy from Auction.

    If you have a lot of tokens, get from the Scout list.

    Also I forgot to ask... how do the negotiations actually work? Do I also have a risk of losing tokens without bringing a player at all (like when I lose in auctions)?

    You pay the token up front to bid and the cash only when successfully.
    Tokens are returned if the bid is rejected. You can up the bid at any time until acceptance/ rejection.

    To add on, you can also offer additional tokens to the manager, am I correct? The tokens used to place offers don't go to the manager, but the token you offer + money do go to the manager.

    Can anyone post a picture of negotiation tab? I am 3 level and can't see it. Also if i buy 80-100 tokens per season, is it better to buy from auction or from negotiations?
