    Is this game dying?

    The question is directed to the members of the higher levels.

    I'm playing the season 15, same level, and I realized that:

    a. the game engine is really getting more random than ever, and people quit.
    I can play against the same formation using the same players/tactic/orders (idem for my opponent about player and tactics) loosing 0-3 the first leg then winning 5-1 the second one.
    I can win 4-0 against a much better quality team or lose 1-3 at home against the last in the standings.
    I could post tons of screenshots with ridiculous results, but you probably know this better than me
    I keep enjoying the game but a lot of people quit.

    b. you always see the same faces
    I know we are grouped in different servers but come on, Nordeus boast of having 11 M players but I always see the same faces in league, champions or in the market. It really seems to have remained in 50-60 persons to play this game.

    c. the market is dead

    1. auctions: no more players with quality ending in 4/9 available.
    it's impossible to sell any player, and it's not a matter of auction lifetime. It's logical that when you buy a player with quality 94, next season you'll have the same player with quality 95..96. Maybe 97 if he grows fastly. Well in 17 days I've been not able to sell a single player with quality among 95 and 98. Not a single one. Now, of course, I cannot manage... anything because I don't have money to spend and my roster is full.

    2. transfer market: it is almost impossible to buy a player because there are no managers on the higher levels. I cannot ask for a player with 1 skill to scout level to a manager of my same level.
    At the moment I have a list of 30 players. 22 belong to team of my same level, 6 don't have the Make an offer button, JUST 2 belong to level 16 but the teams are no more managed.

    3. scout list: as always, very poor. you can buy just 3-4 decent players in the whole saeason, just 1-2 during the first half


    Do you have the same experiene in your leagues?

    easy one word - YES

    come new season if the market is the same i along with a few more will quit, resulting in other`s to quit because of playing bot teams then token buyer`s won`t spend on tokens because of so many bot teams in their league which in turn they will quit because of no competition for the league and yet Nordeus refuse to see this happening, more fool them

    edit; you say you have had this for 17 days try 2 months that`s how long i`v had it which is why i done the thread Bring back old transfer market

    I think, looking at Nordeus financial and game player stats figures, that it doesn't really matter about players past level 10 or so.
    They realise people quit after around a year and so they are concentrating on new players all the time, which they seem to be doing quite successfully, with the South American and Asian market in the last few months being particularly lucrative. In fact, very successful.
    This is how it'll go, the game probably has around another 24 months of high growth rate (plenty more million $$$ yet) then they'll move on and develop another money spinner.

    Hi, I'm at level 13 with all players 6-star and 3 seven stars and is almost the same yet there are players but few, about winning and losing with the worst is the same, I am disgusted with all of this and I wont leave but I like the game, it is logical that people are tired of this, do not build a team to make you lose people you do not even play. A friend and be saluso if we ignore

    Maybe I play the game differently to most others, but I have a different view of it. At present, the game is just as appealing to me as it was when I first started playing. That may be down to the way I play the game. Having the same opponents regularly is a challenge to me, because I know that almost all of them are active managers. I have only had a "bot" as an opponent in my league, once in the last 4 seasons. That is probably because I manage my friends list as much as I do my team. Keeping active managers as "friends" gives me a better chance of playing competitive games. At present my friend list contains 32 active managers at my own level, with 10 a level higher, and 12 a level lower. That allows for me to have a reserve list of managers to compensate for either me promoting or tanking. If one of them stops playing, I delete them from my list and try to replace with a fresh manager from either of the three levels I mentioned. Most of our teams are reasonably level in quality.

    As regards the transfer list, I couldn't really say what I think, as I've only bought 2 players over 3 seasons, and sold 2. Again, negotiations happen often between our teams (as in real life). I only buy scouts if I happen to be playing in a higher level league than my managerial status, and therefore they are 7* players.

    Sorry if this is a bit long, but I'm just trying to put a different slant on the topic. Manage your friends list as much as your team.

    I am starting to do that with one of my teams. In my friends list i have around 60 active managers Mainly from my level, but since i probably Will not promote i invite a few more from 1 level down.
    Current i am in a 14 active managers LEAGUE, and i whant the same next season.

    It is harder to win, but more interesting to play.
    THIS GAME IS TO RANDOM! I STOP WAISTING MY TIME!

    This is my league (from a few days ago), to show my competitive league. All managers are active.
