    Recommended players - how the engine works

    I've read quite a lot about the recommendation system. It seems there is a correlation between the number of players in one position and the recommendations itself, but it's not consistent. Like for example sometimes you have 1 GK only and you will get GK recommendations. But sometimes even if you have like 3 strong STs, you still get STs as a recommendations. But it seems that there is a tendency of the system to offer mostly GKs and STs.

    So while I was reading I noticed someone saying that he only gets STs recommendations, for several seasons, even if he had 4 6 star STs. And he mentioned playin 4-5-1 or 5-4-1.

    Therefore, let's join forces together and test if the formation is a trigger for the recommendations, although it makes no sense to play a defensive formation and receive an ST, but who knows.

    Please post:

    1. What formation are you using.
    2. What recommendations do you usually get.
    3. What's the quality of your players / how many you got for the position you get recommendation at the time you receive the recommendation.

    I'll start:

    1. 4-5V-1
    2. AMR/ST, AML/ST, AMC/ST, ST.
    3. My last AMC/ST, ST recommendations I got today, while I had already 3 - 7 star players: AMR/ST, AML/ST, ST.

    From my logic, I will change the formation to 3-4-3 to see if I will instead receive DCs, DLs, DRs, as I really need defense players. Let's test.

    I'll start because my answer to your questions will be basically the same as yours. But I must say that for 2 seasons I had just one GK in my roster and never a got a single one recommended.

    AMR/ST, AML/ST, AMC/ST,
    that's what the game offers because you can spend token for them hopping that they 'll score more for your team.

    Who gonna spend 60-70 token for a DC or MC ?
    About GK, maybe has to do that yours doesn't perform well and you have many goals conceded ?

    From the very start last december …
    I´ve been offered AML/ AMR /AMC- Striker combination from 79 tokens( near 7 star)-109 tokens (near 8 star) or a Goal keeper.
    I usually play 451 v
    Quality of my players are 8 star


    edit: Im not testing by changing formations as the recommendation option is clearly broken

    lol, yes indeed
    the only relation is with the quality of the team.
    As I drop quality with NIK, I never had a 6* player of 60-70 T , even if my 1st squad is full 6* players - lol

    Agreed ! since start (keepers and strikers only) both first and second team, I have tryed lowering quality, having several keepers and a bunch of striker... the difference is the same

    I don't see how formation or tactics should reflect on the outcome

    I once got a DC/DL + free-kick SA with my second team for a few tokens (29 ? I can't remember). He was 19 and was my best scorer for two seasons: just a dream... that never took place again!

    My best ever player in the history of my club was also my first ever recommended player purchase. He's just played a big part in winning me a 19th League Title and got me to a 4th CL Final in a row.

    I believe recommendations trigger if you dont have back-up of a position.

    I playing 4-1-2-1-2 and i have full rooster 22 players. Each positions have have at least 1-3 sub/ reserves covered. And the scout didn't give me recommendation the entire season.

    only last few days i sold 2 strikers in my sub, and only left 2 strikers in my starting , i immediately get recommendation AML/ST at Q 117 the next day.

    Coincidentally i have a ML/AML and 2 AMC/AMR in my squad. So i guess the game decided to gave me AML instead of AMR.

    The AML/ST recommended is Q 117, my existing best striker is 113.

    Last season i remember i also got recommended a ST with Q 111, but that time my best ST is 105.
