    Players from the junior school

    Hello, I really liked this game until I received two players from the junior school. When I saw that in a contract with one of them would have to pay 21 tokens that I lost interest. Everything associated only with money, they could at least ye forgive yourself when signing the contract greetings and I hope that they will be people who will disagree with me!

    Part of the Token cost is because you don't pay cash to sign him, you just pick up the wage cost - but the Token cost is too high for the quality offered.

    If you don't like the price don't sign him. Simple?

    Management game is about making decisions. Decisions can be good or bad, good managers learn from their mistakes and get better. Bad managers can put a lot of money into the game and still failed to win the trophies he wanted.

    But I can tell you, if you know how to manage your team, the token costing youth is one of the better option available. Unlike transfer market, he cost no money and is risk-free to sign, and is always a fast trainer, that can keep 5* quality relatively cheap until age 26. That is with a few green pack spending you can keep a 4~5* for 8 seasons, and he will worth a lot to sell when you don't need him, way more than the wage and bonus you paid during the time he played in your team.

    Anyway, since these options are also offered to other managers I don't see any problem about it. Sign him or not is your choice, nobody forced you to pay anything.

    There is need of manage the game by making decisions. Which can be good or bad, good managers learn from their mistakes and get better.

    Of course it's about the money ! Even Greenpeace or WWF is looking for money, not Nordeus
    But youth academy is a good idea with a bad execution, so 99% of the players release the T junior (because he costs to much T, he is only 4* and if not spending much greens he still be 4* player, maybe he is playing in a position that we don't want) and sign the 0T player to sell him after that.
    Unfortunately in levels 1 or 2 this is useless because you don't have many levels above you to sell him as a 5* player, and the money are few.

    If signed at 4* near the beginning of a season, a token youth can gain nearly two stars by the end of the season, simply because a 4* player gain progress faster than 5*.

    200% progress in one match without getting the MOM is typical for a 18y token youth. Such player at 4* can gain 5~6sp a day on average from match and training. If you have 28 green pack budget per season you can keep him above 6* for four or five seasons.

    I signed one 24 token youth because they were suppose train faster than most, well that was hollocks as he trained slower than a donkey with 2 legs and i`v also signed a scout 22yrs old scout ( 50 tokens ) and he trained slower than a dead donkey so i will NEVER sign these player`s again until Nordeus get a brain and sort this out, although i do non token player`s and train to 1 skill away from next star and sell via neg list but this is only worth it from level 7 and above if level 4/5/6 then sign and sell on for the cash

    I have never signed the token player from my youth academy and I never will. It's a total rip off.
    I can get someone really good off the direct transfer list for the same number of tokens if I wanted to pay 15-21 tokens for a player.

    Did you let them play competitive match before you start to powertrain them? At maximum motivation even a fast trainer can train very slowly, you have to give him enough pitch time so that you can train efficiently.

    "A player with pitch time train faster" is one of the few important key mechanic mentioned in the official help section. What it didn't tell you is that a player with no pitch time train extremely slowly, so slow you can mistake a fast trainer with an ordinary.

    I was able to keep a 22y scout 7 stars for 3 seasons with a morderate green pack budget.

    And if you let a player with max motivation play, his form will likely be a 8 or 9.
    I guess you sold them too soon and never let them play, before you could realize how good these players are.

    If you buy a 4 star genplayer from the market for only one token, he advances in same speed, wich again makes it irrational to buy the Token academy player. actually it is much more rentable to buy a 5 star player even if the bidding war hits 40-50 token, just because he already is a star better, and still a fasttrainer.
