    Youth Players

    15 tokens to sign a 4-star (20.00) youth player? This is ridiculous. It doesn't even show the market value, so you can't gauge how easily he will train. He'd be by far the worst player on my squad if I signed him.

    What exactly is purpose of Youth camps, other than to provide other players with dirt-cheap free agents?

    They matter more at higher levels, i didn't even build an academy until level 2. The youth 15T and above are usually good trainers.

    Yes it is a waste of tokens, no matter what level your at, some even cost 21 Tokens and still can't reach lineup without a hole bunch of green suitcases. Find a 5 star Nordgen and buy him instead, he can be just as good (the expensive ones)

    Its a shame because Youth academy could have so much potential, but the programmers at Nordeus has ruined it:

    Here is a few simple ways IMO to make Academy usable

    1. Cheaper youngsters
    2. 16 years youngster
    3. five stars youngsters
    4. Ability to try out youngster (a reserve youth squad)

    Yeah, a lot of problems with the Academy. A few tweaks that wouldn't require much changes could make it more useful...

    -18 year old Academy players wouldn't count for the 22 man squad. If you have 2 matches per day you kinda need the full 22 squad, which makes signing Academy players impossible without selling a player you are assumably happy with. Which leads to the second point...

    -You should be able to play them before signing them. Currently we know more about players on the transfer market than about our own Academy players, which is silly. At the end of the season you'd have to sign them or they leave. This would solve potential problems with my first suggestion where you might start a season with 26 signed players (but only have room for 22.) As it is right now the Academy players are more like mystery boxes you take a chance on if you have extra tokens laying around.


    I currently have 4 Academy players and do get an extra kick out of them playing well. Then again I'm 11th in the league and out of the CL and the Cup so it's not very often.

    Or give your youngster a chance at a SA when you sign him. Would be a lot better. Other then that fully agree with Gert.

    3-5 tokens for a 4-star kid is all I can give (it's still alot for your own youngster).. +15 is a joke, especially if you can't see his potential/talent before signing..

    They could atleast show us the player's skills so we decide wether to invest those tokens or not. I release all academy players apart from those who dont cost tokens.

    I just received a 4 star AMC (most of my players are five stars and above). He's come in every game I've put him in so far and put up a 8 form or better.

    So far I'm extremely happy with his performance.

    I also signed the 3 star youth player that costs no tokens and he's been rock solid.

    but, I also totally agree with Gert.
