    Negotiations question

    What's the point of buying a 99% player through negotiation now at the end of the season if he's just going to lose a star tomorrow and will be much weaker? Or does that player not lose a star?192.168.0.1 routerlogin 192.168.l.l

    Yes, in most circumstances most experienced managers would not waste their hard-earned Ts to buy any 99% players who would lose 1* in a few days’ time. Absolute waste of resources.

    However, some lower level managers who would not have saved up lots of Ts and have barely sufficient amount of money to buy 95%-99% players, let alone having any real chance of outbidding experienced managers, would find 99% players via negotiations being a sensibly-priced option for a multi-position+SA 99% player when they could have real needs to buy these players to fight for the Cup and CL trophies.

    The selling-manager probably would find it acceptable to receive a few Ts plus a bit extra gain in money value (15% loss in auction at best vs 10%+ gain in player market value) to sell a bit earlier than season end if that player availability would not impact his trophy-winning ability.

    Barring upselling, eagle-eyed low-level managers may find some extremely well-trained 18yo 59% players irresistible (eg. Level 6 manager bought a 18yo 49% FT on day 1; that FT has finishing stat of 70%. Training only focused on one drill, shooting technique, and ends up with finishing at 120% by day 21; Level-4 buying-manager, who has no greens, spots that and probably would be tempted to bid 15T+ for a 99% ST who has 160% finishing). Obviously it requires the slightly higher level manager who knows what exactly he is investing in, and also a slightly lower level manager who has real needs of certain key players and also is out of greens.
