    Now at lv11, I ‘ll give my opinion about sa I ‘ve met so far in TM - scout/list players or to players I gave some of them.

    GK
    PS-Penalty kick stopper : Useless, very few are the penalties on the game. Maybe somewhat useful after extra time in knock out rounds in CH.L. or Cup but still don’t know if it really working.
    OS-One-on-one stopper : If I have a fast trainer GK, I like to give this sa. Seems that's working a little.

    Defenders
    DW-Defensive wall - AD-Aerial defender
    I give my defenders only those two sa because I believe that other sa as free-kick or corner specialist need also to give skill points to attack but I prefer not to.
    My fast trainers (defenders), usually are very good performers so I believe that this maybe helps a little. Same for scouts. I buy scouts DC-DR or DC-DL with those two sa only.
    Also I prefer those sa for my DMC.

    MC-ML-MR
    DR-Dribbling specialist : WOW, a dribbler ! Well, I don’t know what exactly a player with this ability is doing. In the beginning I believed that he would do this thing we read in the comments “pass one, then another …” but no.
    It's very rare.
    PM-Playmaker : Another sa which I don’t know what it’s useful for (surely the player doesn’t give assists). Maybe if he was a basket ball player.
    I 've read posts saying that a pm improving the passing efficiency, gives some extra % in ball possession but for sure it's not the assists we 're waiting for him during the game.
    FS-Free kick specialist - CS-Corner specialist
    Useful sa for MCs but only if it’s working. Also noticed that maybe it’s working for one season and might not working for the next season. Also depending from the form of the player.
    Also useful abilities for AMC-L-R but for them I prefer

    SS-Shadow striker , when it's working, it's superb !

    One-on-one scorer – I prefer this one for a ST (but also a free kick specialist is good).
    If a ST doesn’t have this style of playing or he is out of form or he isn’t a good player (bad program/ doesn’t fit with the team) this can’t help him.

    PS-Penalty specialist : Another useless sa. Maybe this thing can boost the finishing skill of player and can help him as F-S.

    How much better than normal will a player perform his special ability role?

    I have a player that has 40 points in shooting and 40 for crossing with a free-kick specialist status and another one that has 50 points for shooting and 50 for crossing with no special ability. Which will perform better at a free-kick during the game?

    I'm a level 5 manager.

    Thanks,

    Free kicks and corners are always useful. My MC has scored all his goals (3) this season through free kicks. And you should use penalty specialist on defenders, since my GK nets but defenders miss..

    So, how sa are working ?
    Having some latest info from the new version with the live game and from PricopCatalin page with a lot of useful info about the game, some things we can say are :

    - Special ability is an action our player is performing during the game.
    - A sa isn't adding a bonus (%) in our players skills or actions but it works like a specific action during a game
    - When it's activate during live game, we see the sign
    - Some sa are visible but some not (like dribbler, pm{ ?}, 1 to 1,penalties sa).
    - It doesn't matter if our player had a sa from the beginning (scout, nordgen) or we gave it with training.
    - sa are working individual and only for specific actions. That means a play maker doesn't have some extra talent for C-Ks (because of his sa).
    A 1-1 specialist isn't better in penalties.
    A"header" isn't scoring more from corners.
    - Some players without sa, some times can perform actions like having a sa. We can see some comments saying "Our defender with his aerial domination", sending the ball away.
    Also some players have the talent of a sa without having the sa. F-K or C-K specialists.
    We can read some posts in the forum, saying that giving this relative sa to those talented players, it's boost them more but it's not confirmed.
    (We cannot understand if it's from the given sa or the "talent"/some internal programming of the player).
    - The skills , quality and form of a player affects the result (not the frequency) of a performing sa.
    - Also opponents player's high quality or a counter sa ( a "Header" vs a C-K, or a "Defensive wall" vs F-K specialist), decrease the chances of a sa result.
    - Besides this, performance of special abilities in a game are rare and this is a reason that sa are questionable from many players.
    - That's also a reason not to spend so many boosters (if we don't have enough), to give our player a sa even if in the market, players with special abilities attract many buyers.

    I don't agree with playmaker.

    My wife bought at 2.week a playmaker from recommended player list, and he got ~2nd goal the PM-icon, was 23 time MoM. You also can set him as CK and/or FK and you will see the icon every time, it leads to the goal.

    But I also saw many playmakers, which didn't work or didn't perform like the PM of my wife.
    I have a pm on my own, but I don't, if he is a playmaker for real. His performance is around 7, was last season only one time MoM. But he earned the most cards of all... (7) -.-

    play maker and dribbler sa , is questionable if are visible.
    Some members said that they saw the icon once.
    Need some more investigation.


    You also can set him as CK and/or FK and you will see the icon every time, it leads to the goal.
    You mean that you set a pm as FK specialist and you saw the FK icon when he scored from a FK ?

    If one player has a sa and he is good to that, it doesn't mean he isn't talented in another sa.
    I have a ST with 1-1 but I use him in the right side F-K and in penalties too.
    And he is talented to those too.

    No, CK or FK leads to a goal, the PM-icon is popping up. I'll try to take screenshot, if it happens.
    (Her PM is best at crossing and Shooting, so she tried to put him FK/CK - last season it was a big success, this season... don't know, maybe harder opponents)

    Ok, as I also read in another post about the appearance of the pm icon, I would like from anyone saw it, to describe what action was performed at that time.
    An assist for a goal ? A pass (without leading to a goal) ?
    In a F-K or C-K that leads to a goal ?
    This must be a new one
    or extremely rare.

    No, only if it's an assist. Direct FK (goal) shows nothing.
    Today, it was shown after a counter. A defender played the ball to PM, PM->AML->ST->AML->ST-> Goal. I didn't thought, that their's a pop up for PM. I was surprised and missed the Screenshot. Tomorrow are another two games, and the PM performs better and better. So I hope, i will post it tommorow.

    so, it wasn't a direct assist but for the deploy of the team ?
    Your pm didn't got the assist (his name in the parenthesis beside the scorer) ?
    At what moment the icon pop-up ?

    I was surprised and missed the Screenshot.
    haha, I don't think we have the time to take a screenshot (unless it's a F-K or a C-K and we expect this).
