    Win bonus questions



    Ok, few months past from the last conversation/post about this subject. Time for a little chat again.
    Is win bonus useful and how much affects the performance or the result of a match ?
    Some previous posts I read, didn’t enlightened me much. The conclusion I had was “better be rich and healthy than poor and ill” .
    Well, not that I expect more from this post but I have some questions .

    If win bonus improve the performance of the team why we can change it till the last second before the start of a match while other factors like players condition, formation/order, skill points, we can’t 3 min. before the beginning ?

    Win bonus can affect the morale/motivation/performance of a player (but) in the next match of the team ?

    The bonus of previous season doesn’t automatically change. Has the same prices unless we want to change the level. If its affect, what number the program considers ? It’s the number or it’s the level of the bonus (max, mid.up, mid. low, low ).

    Maybe if we don’t change it to the lv we are, it’s invalid but then why it’s giving to the players after a match.

    How about if we put the max. lv bonus in our team, for the Cup, from the beginning of the game (lv1) and just leave it there for every match ? Would it be keep counting as max. bonus ?

    I use 1/4 @ league; cl and cup; but I love to raise it when I'm facing with good opponent; I think it affects good for my team results but I did noticed when I lower it my team's performance getting decreased.

    I am not sure if bonus really helps. But I think so. Towards the end of the season I usually gradually set it to maximum unless I was knocked out for both CL & Cup, and nothing to challenge in league. Actually this almost never happened because at least I could fight for higher league position. Well, you may think twice for applying high bonus for league as the league prize money is not high enough to cover the bonus I spent. You may try to alter bonus match by match. But my team often performed poorly when I reduce the bonus. So usually I just increase it.

    Thanks for the replies but I think the more they answer (about the use), more the variety of opinions .

    I would like more your opinions about those questions :
    - If win bonus counts, why it's not "locked" like other factors (condition, formation, sp) 3' min before the match start ?
    - Does win bonus affect the morale/motivation/performance of a player (but) in the next match of the team ?
    - If we have the amount of the win bonus stuck from previous season (any lv, any competition) how is it works ?

    I'm level 23 at the moment, having been promoted every season and won the league 17 or 18 times now.

    I've never used a win bonus at all. I've also had moderate success in the cups too.

    I'm not convinced how much influence it has on the results - its hard to say as you don't know if your opponent is using bonus either, but to date I cant say I've felt disadvantaged by not having it on. That said, it could be worse if you take it away after using it, instead of never using it to start with.

    I have a question.

    How do you expect anyone to be able to say with a reasonable accuracy if win bonus does anything or not? How would they tell?

    If I have it on and win - was it the bonus, was it home advantage, was it my heavily skewed striker, was it the red (/blue) arrow, was it my lucky red socks.

    As I've said before I take any legit opportunity of gaining an advantage. Therefore I will use win bonus until losing that cash becomes a disadvantage.

    This is a game and game mechanics do things, but usually they are one insignificant part of a significant whole. Lets call it aggregation of small gains. Or....smoke n mirrors. >.<

    If you do not have win bonus one then

    1. If your opponent has it set, then you will likely lose against a similar strength opponent
    2. If your opponent does not have any, then you will likely lose against a similar strength opponent

    If you ask me, the only time win bonus is useful is when both have it turned on.
