    Red face Some Thoughts as the Game goes on.

    1. Nothing to complain.

    This is not a vent thread, I've been playing iphone's games for like 4 years so i understand how game developers act, they want to make money and it's absolutely understandable. This game is even quite comfortable for non-spenders as they can still get 90% fun of the game without spending any dollar. If you want your team to be outstanding then ofc you have to pay, nevertheless there is another cheaper way to do that, is to study aspects of the game (strategies, transfer tips, building ground order, etc..)

    2. Transfer market
    - I have never chased a target in transfer market that desperately enough to take away from me more than 3 tokens, if i see a VERY favourable player in auction and there is a lot of bid competents, i just walk away believing that there will be a BETTER player showing up in the future. Yesterday i spent one, only-one-token for a 18 YO player, with defensive wall SA and 34 quality (5 stars). Can't believe the day before, people had to go 9 rounds for a 24 YO player with the same SA and 32Q (i gave up at round 2).

    - It's very good idea to have a permium Emblem and Jersey, i made the right choice to invest some tokens into those stuffs, when people see me with premium Jersey and Emblem, they just simply avoid bidding against me (even when i have very limited amount of tokens)

    - TIPS: If you see a token buyer placing a bid of a player 1-2 hour before the auction ends, you can beat him. Normally people like that don't have time to stare at the transfer market. If you see non-spender jump in when the auction's about to enter round 1 (1-2 sec left), they're just "economical" managers, you can beat them too, after 1-2 round. The worst types of bidding competitors are: 1, someone who doesnt play much, they bid for fun, not really for building up a strong team. 2, active token buyers, they are obssessed by this game, just leave them alone.

    3. Competitions
    - League: Nothing much to say, I'm level 3 now and tbh it's too easy to win league tittles atm, the teams in my league are all abandoned, no manager at all, and usually they are 10Q lower than me in team rating.
    - Champion league: The same as League but sometimes there will be big big token buyers so in this case, just hope you won't meet those guys too soon in knock-out rounds.

    - Cup: No! I will NEVER sell my highest rating players at the end of season to be qualified into "weaker" cup table. Cup is the only thing that is actually challenging and unexpectable in this game, and i want keep it that way. Besides, higher cup level grants more cash each match, and i wont have to fight in deadly bid wars at the start of new season.
    - One more thing, i have the feeling that Cup matches always bring huge advantages to Home team, some players in their home stadium will be godlike and play with 200% of their abilities. So i usually play defensive when away and crush the opponents when they come to my place. Even when i get scored in away match, i wont risk playing offensive to get a draw, just avoid goal into my net as much as possible.

    4. Player Development
    - I will never buy any scout player, they can only be useful for maximum of 2 seasons, 69 tokens for that is anything but reasonable for me. And yes, some scout players are even useless in the very first season they show up.
    - My team has:
    + 4-5 players at 18-19 year old, they are the core of my squad.
    + 7-9 players at 30+ year old, after one season playing for me, they will be sold.
    + The rest are 20-21 year old players, they can serve me for 2-3 season before getting put in auction.
    + I never buy any 22-29 YO (unless they are really good with SAs)

    5. Special Abilities
    - I used to underestimate them, but now situation has changed, some of those SAs are extremely useful.
    +Useful: Defensive wall, Aerial defence, Free kick Specialist, Corner kick Specialist
    +Useless: One-on-one stopper/scorer, Play maker, Dribbler, Penalty kick Specialist/ Stopper.
    +I dont know if useful or not: Shadow Striker.
    - I never train special abilities on my young player, trading 3Q for 1SA (50 skill points) is not a bad deal, but it will make your young player can't catch up with other guys in the next season.

    6. What would i do if i have a lot of token

    It's just a for fun question, ofc i dont have a lot of tokens, but if i do, i will:
    - Buy Real Madrid emblem and jersey.
    - Use personal Trainer to train a 18 YO ST into legend, with free kick specialist.
    - Buy cash at the beginning of every season
    - Speed up my ground building.


    7. The end
    Consider it as some thoughts of a level 3 manager, you fellow new players can find some tips here to develop your team, good luck!

    Yep, this is pretty much a template of how to play the game.
    The only issue I'd have, out of the whole post, is that you don't sell your highest rated players at the end of the season for the favourable cup draw, you actually keep hold of them.
    It's all the average to good players you sell, so you end up with maybe a mix of seven 5* and 6* with the other seven players being 1* or 2*.
    That way you have just enough quality to get you through the first round of the cup before the buying spree on the third day of the season, and the core of your squad remains.

    I agree, this is a great evaluation of the game and I agree with most of it.

    Here is what I disagree with....the scout players. Sometimes i'll spend hours upon hours trying to find the right player for a position. Usually when I find the right one the bidding is to high. Yes, i could buy a fast trainer and mold him into what I want, but that kills a LOT of green packs and I'm already doing that with other players. My example here would be a ML/AML/DML with special ability. It's very hard to find one of these in the basic auction.

    I'm a father of three so spending a little cash to avoid the late nights and hours upon hours of training makes it worth it to me. Also, if you buy a lower level scout he will last you more than two seasons.

    Everyone lives are different. Some have more time to devote to the game than others.

    Right, it sounds as a good strategy, but how can i get 1 star players? I'd like to keep good subs (4-5 stars) so i use all my slots on my squad to fill with decent players that can replace my main team when they're injuried, tired (that way i can save up a lot of green + red packs )

    I know i know, i heard it somewhere, things will change when you get to lv 5, nothing's even rational, but then what? Many of you guys still play to level 10,20, i think i can do that too

    It's the truth, the convenience of any game is that you can trade your money for time, If i have a shortage of time, i will do the same. I didnt say scout players are worthless, most of them actually change the table, i faced with couple of teams with scout players, usually they play very well and have 8.0+ rating after the matches.
    Another thing you've got it right: about the AML/AMR with good SA, i can't find them too, lol, i was looking for an AM with shadow strike but never see them in transfer market, or if they show up, there will be a bloody bid war.

    But as a low level manager (1-3), is it not advisable to buy scout player? First, you can do well without any scout. Second, If you buy scout at first season, you will enjoy winning, the next season, you dont buy and you start losing, you'll lose faith, thinking that the only way to win is to spend. Then, you end up quitting the game after spending considerable money on it, because you can't keep up with the demand for scout players.

    IMO, i will buy scout player, may be at level 6,7. Not now

    You have learned a lot for 3 seasons. Do not forget to read some tutorials on forum, they are useful for everyone.

    Well, "do not judge book by its cover".
    You are very close to the point, but...
    Experienced player usually do not buy players whose age is 30+ because later it is very hard to sell them.
    I'm focused on 2 type of players on market, I choose them rather by value (and price on auctions) than by age only;
    1) fast trainers - very expensive players whose age is 18-20, growth is very fast, that is why they are good on long term
    2) cheap players - players which have slow growth, but good quallity. You can also find age 20 players which are very cheap due their very slow growth. They usually play 1-2 seasons in my team before selling. I buy such players in order to save money for fast trainers.
    For example, on level 10 fast trainer costs ~30M while cheap player could be found ~10M

    Good luck, have fun!
