    Can someone give me a possible explanation on this?

    I refreshed my auction and found a 27yo ST with 1v1 at 38 quality which is 5* almost scout.
    I look at who is in the auction and come across these.....guys.

    I find it strange when a person has jack shit for a squad yet has a stadium built up quite nice and the surrounding buildings need to be upgraded to get that stadium, so they must have either had tokens and used them, because i constantly build and am not at their level yet, or they are 'ghost' accounts.

    Please let me know what you think:

    1:




    2:




    They are both currently bottom of their leagues. They both have trophies of bad league places.

    Considering what they are bidding on, they dont win often and will most likely drive up the token price.
    I hate bidders like this.

    The next question is this: do i enter the bidding because he would be a great addition and the 2nd best ST for me. I hate auctions like this because for this quality to come is very rare and its going to bring a token fest. I guess 35 tokens will win it if I enter, 7 tokens if I dont enter.

    Hahaha! Your last comment tickled me, I always see that happen - I think 'the bidding will go high for this player' so I stay out and then he goes in round 2. Another time 'yep, I'll get him cheap' and it goes for 10-15 rounds or more

    I think these idiots save their tokens for one good player and waste them every time - I see it often. Even against teams with amazing stadiums, facilities, first team and reserves I can often win after 10 rounds in an auction. Because I'm on a good TM it seems these players think 'oh well, I'll get the next one'

    Then there's the prat who gets online once a week and bids all his tokens on the one decent player on the list

    I say, if he's a player you really want, go for it
    Team:

    - Feeder AFC -

    That the problem. I went for this almost exact same player last week and ended up giving up after round 49 and $14M for a player worth $3M. I bought a scout instead, was cheaper in the long run. I can see the same damn thing happening over again.

    I have seen alot of bidders like this with poop 1/2/3 star teams but at level 4 or 5 (I'm only level 4) and with like 20million to spend on players they bid and bid and bid.......wasted alot of hard earned tokens on trying to replace players bidding against these "ghost" accounts, they always seem to be from Thailand/China etc

    HA! there is a god after all.

    I thought why not, but I wont go over 20 tokens since I would pay that in negotiations for a player like this.



    4 tokens? Last time it went 49 rounds for this guy with freekick, so i guess 1v1 is not as good? I'll take him...

    OK, so SOMEONE please explain this to me:

    1) The guy who apparently put this guy on the auction list had my new player as his BEST player.
    2) the guy is one level below me and I get a guy that is almost scout.
    3) the guy has great team for level 3, cant figure out why he had to sell unless he was forced to sell after 7 days to make up a deficit.
    4) if he was forced to sell, he only got $1.96M and he now has $2.08M, so he must have played a game if this happened, or sold another player?
    5) I just realized that the news tidbit says a specific person and the link is to the person in the pic I have provided. What the hell?



    Why the hell would he do this unless he was forced to? I am NOT complaining since I got a good deal, but hey, I just want to know.

    Um yes? He is my 6th best player in my full team of 22. Why not. 4 tokens. good deal.

    27yo ST, 38 Q with 1v1 and he replaced a 28yo ST, 31 Q with no SA. I repeat, 4 tokens. good deal.

    ya think?
