    Lol Thanks!

    One time I won the cup and champions league and I was leading my league all season, Then out of nowhere I kept getting bad luck in my league about 3/4 of the way through the season. I would lose to the 10th place team after beating the 2nd place team twice that season. I would be at home and I would show up but the opponent wouldn't show up and I would be up 1 to 0 and give up 2 goals in the last 10 minutes of the game.

    I went from being up almost 10 points plus points to dropping to 2nd on my last game of the season. It was so painful! I've won 2 out of 3 a few other times, but that was the hardest to take.

    I can say from personal experience that it's very hard to quit the game "cold turkey". For me it was a more gradual process. I started by trying to sell as many players through Negotiations as possible, to build up my token total. It still kept me engaged because I had to still log into the game, but gradually I started selling most of the players I had any attachment to (and at least this way another manager was using them, and I wasn't sending them into the Nordeus meat grinder). Then, I would start replacing them with four and three star players, so my team gradually stopped being competitive. And then at some point, I was just able to stop, since I had accomplished the following:
    • I had sold most of the players I was attached to
    • I was no longer as invested in the wins and losses of my team
    • I had built up enough tokens that if I ever came back, I would be able to build a team without too much problem


    And now, I am no longer in the routine of logging onto the game, so I have no need to come back and play (especially with the devs making the game worse with each update). Perhaps if the current director (or team) is fired, and a new team comes in that starts catering to experienced managers, I will start playing again, but for now, I will enjoy not having to stress about all the bugs and randomness of the game.

    Also, I HAVE SO MUCH FREE TIME! Seriously, you would be surprised how easily you can fill your Top Eleven time.

    85% addiction.
    I get no joy from training, trading, winning, beating favorites; I get frustrated often and keep coming back. Addiction. I'm trained, never miss a day, never let my players sit at 99% condition. Habits. Addiction.

    14% because in my association I have loyalty to my 2 friends. I don't want to leave them, but it so much addiction work to maintain a team that helps my group.

    1% because I know I will not try another football manager after TE, and I am addicted.
