    Angry When the Team Constantly under-deliver...

    Hi Folks.
    I am honestly starting to get tired of the game. Maybe someone here can get me to find the spark again. How? Well, lets see if there is a solution on this..

    I was for the first 7 season unstoppable. Won the league and Champions almost all the time. Then something changed.
    I had the best team, youngest team, most valuable team etc.. but i started to lose alot of games. Games that i should have won easily. I didnt even placed top 7, so i had another season in that division. Now i was even better, and had by far the best team, and they were used to play together for a whole season. I still didnt win the games i should have won. Frustrating. I ended up 3rd, and are now on lvl 9. And the problems continues. I am better than my opponents, but i cant pull a win when i should. Both Champions and league. (Cup has been a mystery too, but in a way that i have NEVER had other than teams from higher divisions to compete against).
    So i wonder, where is the problems, what is wrong with my team? They can slaughter the opponents one game, and the next game all my players under-deliver. From 7 to 9´s in ratings, to 4 to 6 in the next game. That never happened before.

    Before you come with your suggestion, please understand that i know more than average in this game... (but obviously not all of it lol)

    I have a very young team. Is that the reason? No routine?
    They have played together alot of games. New players are starting slowly to fit into the team by training matches, substitutes etc.. (too many new players in a match results in a very hard chance to score, i know)
    I check the opponents Team formations, and i have 2 formations that i can alter with, and i use the one that should "win".
    My players are in a good mood.
    My players are in good condition
    My players are rested.
    My players are used to the specific postition.
    My players are all of them dating a supermodel (this was a joke)
    My team gets bonuses for wins
    My team always has more possession of the ball
    I play offensive style, through the middle, short passes, press on my own half/whole pitch, no counter attacks, no offside.
    ... i think i have checked it all. But i must miss something.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Game wise
    I find that mixing 28-33 year olds with young'uns (18-22) a good mix - 50-50%

    Game-logic wise
    Lvl1-4 I won back to back leagues (including 26-0-0). Lvl5 I started to get trolled. Also at your level, there are many more active managers compared to lower levels where you meet bots more often than not. They make it easy in the lower levels also because it is to get u hooked.

    After 7 unstoppable season, you are due a lot of troll results. So bear with it. We all need to get trolled.

    Perhaps try changing your formation? Use your best 10 rated players in their preffered positions (if they are DC/DR, then use DC since its the first position@the preffered position). Usually it would be easy to spot the weaker rated player, try swapping him out for another player. Its all experimental! We live and we learn, season to season. And like what Qambu Yaasi said, earlier seasons are easily won, as you go higher, there are more competitive teams/managers. I was once in a season where all top 7 league manager were token buyers, and all had well skilled and rated players. Although no gold for me that season, but I know from then, the future seasons will be tougher!

    The main problem is that it is easy to smurf at low levels and win everything but at the higher level everyone are strong, as such winning is much harder.

    Out of 64 people playing the game, 63 don't reach level 7. Reaching level 11 is one out of 1000. So you are battling an increasingly narrow group of players as you level up, eventually your win rate will be 50/50 unless you reach to the top and dominates almost everyone else...

    I don't think age is that important because I won cup and CL with team which had age average 20 (one player was 30y.o., one 23, all other 22 or less in 22 players squad)

    What is important then? Form.
    Form is something that i think it is somehow written in your player's genes. If player has constantly bad form, you can't change it whatever you do. I've tried with blue boosters, position changing (for MC's), contract renewal (to increase wage), increase win bonus... Nothing worked. Only possible solution is to sell such player and get new one. It doesn't have to be whole team. Change only worst form players, few of them can change outcome drastically.
    I've went through that, my team had 9th position for days although had strongest squad in the league. Then I sold my MC's, their form was constantly 6-7. Form of team completly changed, at the end I managed to finish season 2 points behind leader.

    It is hard to avoid troll results, but if your team is in bad form, they will repeat and repeat. One troll result doesn't mean your team has problem.

    Last season I had the same sensation using the team of the OMA League, the Port vale... and the solution for that is sell the worst player that you have in every line, (DC-MC-ST) and try to buy a key player.
    I had very good results with the ST I bought because is doing the 1/2 of the work that I need to be in the Top of the league. At the end of the season if I obtain the Title ( lets see what happen, league is so long..) I will say for sure that a player did the 1/2 or more of the work.

    Remember always, you can have 11 players in the team, but you only need 1-2 or max. 3 to make work the whole team.
