    This is exactly what everyone will do. It will be a percentage race.

    No team will be disqualified in the first season as the new system is introduced. So next season (144) everyone will have FA Points Multiplier x1, x2, or x3.

    However, with the following season (145), the rule will start applying and all teams that didn't promote in the last 2 seasons will be disqualified.

    Level 60+ teams and low-level teams are not on an equal footing. At low levels, it is very easy to rank 1-3 in the league. The same cannot be said about 60+ levels.
    Lian, will this be taken into account somehow?

    If you don't want to pay, then you can't complain about not winning either. If you expect to win it all for free, you better have state of the art strategy

    Tankers can keep tanking when they want. No one is stopping them doing so.

    But they can no longer affect association results after next season. With a pretty horrible squad accumulated with tanking, they will also find it extremely difficult to get the whole team changed and improved enough in just 1 season to compete well in the season after next, let alone finding any decent associations taking them on as member if they cannot make top3 in the coming season’s league (after deservedly being kicked out by captains who would invite league top3 with x3 multiplier candidates as replacements). Just and well deserved consequences of their serial unsporting behaviour for seasons.

    The change encourages competitive league matchups, so it can only be a good thing (also for Nordeus who should receive more T-income with more teams needing to strengthen to compete in league). At least it is no longer an option to only play 2nd team in league and 1st team in CL & Cup when we do need to win against better opposition for top3.

    All that leaves is the how good each manager can manipulate their draws to maximise their chances of a potentially easier draw. We will see how this goes.

    But at least the tanker issue is resolved. Better than now for sure.
    Winning is a form of art. Consistently winning is a show-hand of skills and luck.
    Asso tag: #29GB24 (1st level-7 team record holder) & #LV4PFF (New 2nd level-4 team)

    Will the FA Points Multiplier influence the season ranking of the FA or just to define individual and FA rewards for the manager?
