I did almost get caught out with some big form swings but like I said the player in question just missed out but if I had wanted to take him I would have been stuck as I would of had to remove a player currently on tour to make room for him.
Just wanted to bring it to your attention as I can see the possibility of it causing a problem.
Having said that with the new form structure players form won’t take big swings over a three week period like they can now so shouldn’t be a problem moving forward.
We have a Nat player who went from Reasonable form to poor form over the last three weeks hopefully next season form drops won’t be so dramatic.

How does the nation selected for a random youth recruitment work? Is it equally weighted across all the countries or is it more weighted more towards the smaller player pool nations?

At this stage it is equally weighted

Stupid question time
As skills get higher training slows ? Or the points between levels get bigger ?

Hi Admins, A gentle reminder about opening up the transfer countries to the Three Big Nations with the deadline for transfer requests coming up. Thank you.

It's probably posted, but have you done up a comparison of the number of pulls (and the number above certain wages) between the old and new system? A bit like the tables you posted a couple of seasons back prior to the changes?

Further edit viewtopic.php?f=11&t=39490&start=165
Page 2, 3 and 12 of that thread- less of an eyesore than posting big lists here

New numbers I think expected soon

Thanks mate, exactly what I was looking for. A very interesting part of the game to read up about

Stupid question - I'm in debt, and want to sell a high wage player to bring costs under control, but I only have 12 players in my senior squad. How do I sell them? I can't purchase a cheapo player to fill the spot. I've had this situation a couple of times in the past and always had to wait until the game autosold my highest wage player - is this the only option? I don't want to lose that guy but am happy to drop a couple of others...

What is the highest supporters number? Is there a ceiling for it, or it just keeps on growing based on the performance of the team?

Highest actual by a team currently is 2861

The max is actually a soft cap and then sustained success etc will get you past that
Without looking at the +/- calc for the supp change my guess is around 3000

Not that I am aware of
Ash gave away some free weeks at time and maybe that is what you are thinking of
