Congrats to the Vandals! It was a good series, apart from the massacre in the last game.

In Topic: Young Players Still Declining

Those players generated on FA are likely completely random, including their hidden potential. When they get a generated with a much higher overall than their potential would otherwise allow, that's when they don't develop or start dropping for no apparent reason.

It's also the very nature of simulations to come across as random sometimes. Under normal conditions, I'd say any given team within a league has at least a 20% chance of winning any other team within that league on any given night. That percentage is an extreme example, and even that leaves quite a bit of room for upsets.


And the better (player quality) team wins more often than it loses. For that I've some stats derived from the Biscuit power rankings over the 5 full seasons it's been there. Bearing in mind the power rankings only take into account player overalls, and there is always much more at play.


Between S10-S14:

67,5% of available playoff spots have been filled with top-8 teams.

Regular season winners have been ranked: 1st, 1st, 1st, 10th, 2nd.

Cup winners have been ranked: 1st, 7th, 4th, 3rd, 2nd.


The take is small, but it gives a hint as to that the materially best teams do prevail most of the time over a long enough time frame.



tldr, I think this game does a pretty good job when it comes to better teams winning games. There is always the random element that is present in sim games, as it should be.

In Topic: Offering contracts to prospects?

CPU teams can offer contracts to prospects. You still hold the rights until 21. You can offer a contract to your prospect that is signed with a cpu team at any time, and he'll join your team at the start of the next season.


Human managers can't offer contracts to prospects they don't have rights to.


Edit: It appears that gators type faster than cats.
