Re: Current ability

dbuk1 wrote: Tue Sep 19, 2023 8:40 pm Can someone give an explanation as to how current ability is calculated? as i have a player according to CM Scout intrinsic that has current ability of 1 but is CA attributes are superior to another player that has current ability of 26.

Also how can any player have current ability of 1????
Maybe it is in less relevant attributes for his position?
CA should be looked at only in combination with scout% and attribute ratings.

A CA of 1 just means that the player is poo poo.

Is he as good as his stats? What i mean is, that I have bought Saviola before but he just didnt score much. I have no idea why.
So I wondered if anyone has gotten Vieira before.
Vieira is a top, top, top, top, top player
Good to know he is not a disappointment like Saviola. Thanks.

Weird. I have never bought him before.

Saviola is well known to be rubbish on CM0102 considering his attributes and CA.

I've always thought the match engine (heavily) favours strong strikers with a lot of jumping and heading when it comes to scoring goals (in the best leagues). Saviola... does not have those qualities...

Not so sure about Heading, but definitely Jumping, along with Off The Ball, Finishing. I made a player with low CA and PA and only about 5 or 6 high attributes (including the above 3), and he was basically Tsigalko Part 2.

Last time I bought him he was playing together with Tsigalko and one or two in a rotation, but Saviola and Tsigalko played the brunt of the games for a few seasons.
He wasnt bad but he wasnt playing like you would expect by looking at his stats.
I can look it up later.

Reminds me to ask.
What is the difference between the stats Positioning, Off the ball and Anticipation?
All three seem to be "act without ball" stats.

Yes
how?

How much does making a position visible make it more likely for the AI to play a player in that position?

I know it depends on the makeup of a squad but for example if you had someone with centre 20 and right side 15, if you amended right side to 14 instead would the chances of seeing them play on the right be reduced considerably or is it negligible?

My latest spot on "son of an ODB legend" watch;

Alfonso Montero, 16yo D RC at Juventus (R)/October 2023. Son of original Juve stopper, Uruguayan rock Paolo Montero.

You'll get some players where their position rating exceeds their visible and they are a lot better than the alternative. They do need like 13-14 not visible in their sides rating. Oyarzabal played a lot of games at AMC a couple of updates ago for having 14 for Centre and their being standout for the position.

One thing to note, if a player has 20 free role and the AI tactic has 20 for right back, anyone with 20 free role will play right back regardless of their position if the manager has 18+ for free role. So a striker with 20 Attacker and 20 Free Role will play right back. That's why you sometimes see forwards playing Sweeper on the ODB and in some updates.

Re: CM Scout Intrinsic and Attributes Intrinsic Value

Post by Keakiwi »

Hey team,

Just a quick question here regarding positions with the arrows. If you've got a MC with an arrow pointing to the DM or AM, should you pick a player who can play both positions? Which position should you regard first (ie. pick the MC and then slot whichever one is best suited to DM or AM in there) or doesn't it matter? Or do you pick a DM who can play MC (15 or higher in position) over a pure MC? I'm just not sure what the best way to go is because I have arrows everywhere and I dunno if I'm picking the right way.

It doesn't matter. A player who has 20 MC, 20 DM and 20 AM, can play in any of these 3 positions and with arrows for each of these positions. And a player who has 20 M, and DM and AM 1 (pure MC), will not be better than one who has 20 M, 20 DM and 20 AM.

I wonder what the hell is going on. It sounds like a brag, I know, but look at this.

I had to play a backup DMC because of injury and he scored Man of the Match, so I kept him in the line-up.

The last 10 games, he's was MoM 7 times.
In the last 7 games, he was MoM 6 times.

And this is a DMC.
I don't know if I've ever seen such a thing.

I've wondered before but now bored enough to ask - how come the order of teams before the season starts is always fucked up (i..e not alphabetical) on the updates? It's not like you're renaming teams or anything...

ASBTBCWC in this example.

I’m pretty sure it’s only England - Scotland starts alphabetically and I think Italy does too

problems with 'wib wob' and buying players...

Post by a_j217 »

first time playing cm0102 in nearly 20 years! used to play this at uni back in the day...

anyway, two issues...

1. my wib wob isnt working. its always stuck in the bottom left corner of the pitch. whenever i click on other areas of the pitch nothing happens?

2. and i'm having difficulty buying players - always rejected because theyre 'indispensible' or some other reason. is there an exploit i can use to buy players more easily?

cheers

Uh... apparently winning the League Cup qualified my Forest Green Rovers team for the UEFA Cup.
Is there going to be a problem that I am listed as semi-professional?
When does a team turn from semi-pro to pro? Or does it not matter at all??

Shouldn't be a problem at all. I won the UEFA Cup with Newry, a semi-professional side.
