    Scratch got a reaction from RichD in Chelsea Wonderkid Challenge (completed)   
    Yeah, I'm going to stick it out this season to see what happens, but I'm thinking I might need to ease off on the 1 at the back stuff. Might try a Celtic save (sorry @ScottishFMM !) to see whether it still works in cases where you're a lot stronger. Or maybe I will just go again with my DT tactic (one at the back but more in the midfield). 
    I'm wondering if they've seen our FMM20 careers and gone "Right, we need to make it more realistic!". Part of me is sad that these tactics I created don't seem to work anymore, but on the whole I'd be happy if they've made it more realistic.

    I’ve had the same problem on my Celtic game, my ultra attacking one doesn’t work as well, so had to change a few things, still not 100%. Starting to think 1 at the back isn’t as effective!

    Scratch got a reaction from Dai_ in The Chelsea Wonderkid Graduates Challenge   
    Everyone loves a wonderkid, right? Taking a young player and developing them into one of the world's best, carrying the club to glory! What's better than that?   Each year, the Wonderkid List is one of the most popular posts on Vibe. It lists the best young players for that year's game. They have to be 20 years or younger to qaulify - once they reach 21, they are no longer considered a wonderkid (although the ingame wonderkid tag still applies to them). Once they graduate, some wonderkids go on to achieve greatness in real life, some disappear, becoming an answer for trivia nights...   Obviously, there are ex-wonderkids scattered throughout the game, and it makes sense that many end up at the top clubs. I'm not sure how many of the players at the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona are ex wonderkids, but it's likely to be high. However, it's worth considering the current Chelsea team, which seems to have a high number of still young players who were on the Wonderkids List in recent years:   Christian Pulisic (22yrs): 2020, 2019, 2018, 2017 Kai Havertz (21yrs):  2020, 2019, 2018, 2017 Mason Mount (21yrs): 2020, 2019 Tammy Abraham (23 yrs): 2018 Timo Werner (24yrs): 2015   Pulisic and Havertz in particular have been Vibe favourites, year in, year out. I thought Werner was going to be pretty close to their level and was surprised that he only made the list once, way back in 2015. The thought of all three combining at a single club is exciting! Throw in Tammy and Mason and that's a whole lot of great young talent right there.    Chelsea have other players who have been on the list - Kurt Zouma (a bunch of times), Ben Chilwell (2018), maybe some older player too (not sure), but for this challenge, we are focusing on the attacking players who are recent graduates of the list.   Of course the question remains whether they can convert that promise into results. They all look to be on the path to greatness, but have yet to walk it. They've graduated, so now is the time for them to step and perform!   The Challenge
    Take charge of Chelsea and play one full season. Choose 4 of the ex-wonderkids listed above and try to maximise their goal contributions, whilst leading the club to glory.
    Your final score will be the sum of:

    Yeah, I should have gone with Mount over Pulisic, but same... I have Havertz retrained as a T in between TMs (not that logical, but worked really well in FMM20), but I'm sitting 7th and about to get sacked... 🙁

    Great job mate. Though I make it 283 points instead of 282 (Timo got 44 instead of 43). 🙂 Will add you to the leaderboard shortly.
    I've started this myself now and it's not going as smoothly as your attempt. 😐 I'm not sure if it's because I pulled the whole team apart and lost all the existing dynamics (and that really does have a big effect), or whether it's because I'm using one of my super attacking FMM20 formations (and they no longer work in 21). Either way, it's certainly more of a challange than last year!

    Okay, last season of FMM20 for me...
     
    First, we welcomed this lad to the club:

    I think he has improved a step or two over the original version, but that's not much development in two whole seasons! Still it meant we could get him for £26M (pluf 50% sell on). 
     
    There wasn't much other business, just let a couple of fringe players go and signed some yong players as cover:
     
    I used the following formation, which is basically my season 2 tactics, with one CM moved up front.  

    My original TT tactic had two IWBs with two Ws in front of them and only 1 in CM. This one sacrafices the left W in favour of having two in central midefield. It's hard to tell, but this feels like it's almost as attacking, but more stable defensively. 
     
    It resulted in more goals than the two up front tactic from last season (162 vs 153), and we finally hit our stride and won everything, but it's hard to tell how much of that is down to the tactic and how much down to us having a Sh1t H0t team now.

     
    Had a few injuries - Koita missed a couple of weeks in the off season, then a month during the season, Pellegri missed 10 days, and Esposito missed a couple of days:
     
    Here's what the lads looked like at the end of the year:



    Esposito has developed  very nicely, and Koita and Pellegri are world class. 
     
    Did they score? You bet they did! 



     
    A great season:
    Koita got 48 goals and 19 assists for 67 points Pellegri got 67 goals and 24 assists for 91 points Esposito got 48 goals and 21 assists for 69 points For a total of 227 points for season 3 Once again the new boy outscored Koita! To be fair, he was playing in the left TM position, which generally gets less goals. Pellegri was on penalties, but still you have to say that he was our dominant forward this year. 
     
    Anyway, that gives us:
    Season 1:  65 Points Season 2: 167 Points Season 3: 227 points Which adds up to a total of 459 points. I'm happy with that!
     
    This was very enjoyable, especially as you need different tactics from season to season. but it's time to head over to FMM21 now.
    I'm a little sad because FMM20 has been great and I've been able to power through careers faster than ever. Also, I genuinely like these strikers, but this is likely goodbye to them - Koita is in FMM21 but is distinctly average compared to this version. Pellegri is still pale shadow of this version (maybe slightly stronger than Koita). And even Esposito doesn't appear to be as strong on the new version (still decent, but not as good as in 20). But I guess that's how FMM works...
    Anyway, thanks everyone for reading (assuming there is still someone in the FMM20 forum to even see this!  ).

    Its 5 subs in European games and only 3 in the League and domestic cups. I'm attempting this challenge now too as a nice little starter to the game. 👌 I have a tactic from last years game which is handy for four attacking players. I'm excited how it'll work this year.
     
    Well done, @RichD. Hopefully I'll get a score somewhere near yours.

    Not playing a career yet, but mucked about a little bit now and have 3 observations so far:
    One of my super attacking tactics from last year seems to work roughly as well this time around - only played 5 games, mostly won by 3 or 4 goals, but got hammered by a very good team (Liverpool) - so maybe there's no significant change to the match engine? Needs more testing over a longer period of time.
      Talking to players about poor performance has changed. Last year if they had a match rating of 6 or less you could fine or warn them. Once you found which one a player responded to, you could rinse and repeat while their Professionalism, Work Rate and Determination improved (up to 15 out of 20). This year if they have a rating of 6 or less you can criticise their performance which they mostly respond well too, but it doesn't improve any of the hidden attributes (or if it does, there is no message). Good for boosting morale, but not for permantly improving the player. If they got 5 or less, then you can warn or fine them, but not once have I had a positve response (out of 5 attempts). Takeaway: no more easy way to turn dodgy players into solid citizens...
      Many of my transfer tricks don't work anymore. Eg: Last year you could offer list price, see their response, close the dialoge window, open it again, offer just over list price and they would respond with their absolute minimum, which was a lot less than the first response. Now, that doesn't seem to work (or if it does, only occasionally and doesn't get you a much better price like before). Most of the time, they stick to the first response. So looks like that part of the transfer system is more solid and harder to manipulate to get great deals. Seems like a bummer, but I'm happy that it should make it a little harder/more realistic when building a squad. But I haven't played much, so will have to see how things pan out.

    @NguyenDucAnh Posting this in case it helps you.
    I loop through the team section to get the team names and I've found some records have extra characters. Here's an eg of a club with the extra chars:

     
    Most teams have 00 00 28 00, but Vitesse have 01 00 then the chars in blue then the 00 00. 
    The 01 seems to be saying the have 1 affiliate club agreement. The 30 01 00 00 is Chelsea (I guess they are first as they are the senior partner), then the 30 02 00 00 is Vitesse (the junior partner). I'm not sure what the other numbers are, but they must be about this partnership because Chelsea has the exact same string in the exact same order.
    I'm guessing that if a club has 2 affiliate agreements in place they will have 02 00 then two sets of those extra characters. 
    There's also an extra two chars just after the shortname. Not sure what they are looks like a duplication of a code to me - for Vitesse it is 9E 00 9E 00 instead of just a plain old 9E 00. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Great stuff mate, will add the score to the leaderboard in a minute. Right to the top!
    Pretty good for a first career in 21 too. I still haven't played yet so not sure what to expect. I'm guessing it will take a while to settle in and work out how to get the most of it, so makes your score more impressive when viewed in that light.
    I've never tried a 4 player challenge either and not sure the best way to approach it. With the three up front ones I play them every game I can, but sub them all off - but you can't do that with 4 players... Hang on, is it still 3 subs in FMM21 or did they move to 5?. So much to get my head around...

    Take your time, FMM 21 has just released a day ago. You don't need to hurry. I would also need to get my hands on the database too, which would also take awhile before I can start editing stuff seriously.
    I'm just glad that they didn't change the CA/PA bit. This would be great for my editing works, as I have perfected the method of porting players, thanks to you 😁
