    @lonfo The club you want (or actually maybe don't want) is Risca United in the JD Cymru South (Wales). A 500 capacity ground, pretty abysmal facilities and the worst average CA and PA in the game... @Rich's Carmarthen Town are in the same division but are a powerhouse in comparison.

    Scratch got a reaction from MikeF in 1k Challenge - The Importance of Being Ernest - Completed   
    Just caught up with this and he's kicked into gear now. He's looking really good and you just have to find a tactic that unlocks him - which it seems you've done now. Should be pretty straight forward from here on in...
    I was going to say that the best business was selling Loser to Inter for £63M, but then you went and bought him back! Just joking on his name of course. 😄
    Anyway, doing great, keep it up.

    Welcome back! It's a bit quiet around here lately, many folk taking some time away I think. 
    Great going with the challenge. Just need to get a few more going through Weston and you'll be right. Otherwise, you'll have to go long (I still think you'll get there). But what's up with this 57 year old CR7 still playing!!! Let the man get some rest... 😄

    Thank you for your recognition!
    From the scout/coach report, these comments are related to hidden attributes:
    From training report:
    Of course and there's squad dynamics. The top three are quite straightforward. I'm still trying to figure out morale but I think it's either the player or his friend(s) has some thing to complain about. Also the very ambitious players seem to have built-in negative impact on morale. Loyalty is also pretty weird. I saw Frenkie De Jong with 15 loyalty having F level influence and Luka Modric with 13 having B???

    @eternalaurora - Alright, here's the mentoring test I did last night - just looking at the effect of "mentorship finished" event on hidden attributes (not the other attributes).
    I joined a club, set up a mentoring partnership and holidayed through until the just before it ended. Not as good as playing it, but I don't have time to do that.
    I tried 4 times before I got one to work. First I used Herrera at PSG, then Goretzka at Bayern and both times it went almost 2 years and ended up getting to the point where the player felt he wasn't learning much from the mentor. Both times, they were a perfect match and had good influence, so I guess that shows that there's more to it than that. I know I've seen some players marked as good influences on younger players, so perhaps there is another hidden attribute for that somewhere.
    Next I went to Celtic and tried Thorsby because I've had good results with him before, but he wasn't a perfect match, only good - I tried it, but the player lost interest in his mentorship after a couple of months, as was expected.
    So finally I turned to Scott Brown, who I know mentors players more quickly than most (maybe because of his Leadership?) and who was a perfect match. That the test that actually worked and got the player to complete his mentorship.
     
    The Mentor:

     
    The Player

    Starting Hidden Attributes:

     
    The Partnership

    Perfect role model and focusing on leadership (though I don't look at that at all in this test, just the hidden attributes).
     
    Just Before The Relationship Ends
    By the time Murray's ready to graduate, his hidden attributes look like this:

    Most are unchanged, but Unselfishness has improved by 2 over the course of the test. We don't know if it was from the mentoring or squad influence or something else.
     
    The Graduation
    All the results are in this spoiler section if you want to look:
    but here is the table summarising them:
    Test Trait Picked Up Main Attribute Change Other Attribute Changes 1 Work Rate Work Rate +8 Pressure +1 2 Loyalty Loyalty +7 Pressure +1, Unselfishness +1, Work Rate +1 3 Pressure Pressure +6 Work Rate +1 4 Work Rate Work Rate +8 Pressure +1 5 Consistency Consistency +6 Pressure +1, Work Rate +1 6 None N/A Pressure +1, Work Rate +1, Ambition -1 7 Professionalism Professionalism +2 Pressure +1, Unselfishness +1, Work Rate +1 8 None N/A Pressure +1, Work Rate +1, Ambition -1 9 None N/A Pressure +1, Work Rate +1 10 Pressure Pressure +6 Unselfishness +1, Work Rate +1 11 Work Rate Work Rate +8 Pressure +1 12 None N/A* Pressure +1, Work Rate +1, Temperament -7 13 Professionalism Professionalism +2 Pressure +1, Unselfishness +1, Work Rate +1 14 None N/A* Pressure +1, Unselfishness +1, Work Rate +1, Temperament -7 15 Pressure Pressure +6 Unselfishness +1, Work Rate +1 16 Professionalism Professionalism +2 Pressure +1, Work Rate +1 17 Professionalism Professionalism +2 Pressure +1, Work Rate +1 18 Determination Determination +5 Pressure +1, Unselfishness +1, Work Rate +1 19 None N/A Pressure +1, Unselfishness +1, Work Rate +1, Ambition -1 20 Consistency Consistency +6 Pressure +1, Unselfishness +1, Work Rate +1  
    Of the 20 test, the personality traits being picked up were as follows:
    6 were reported as none (but 2 of these were actually Temperament) 4 were Professionalism 3 were Work Rate 3 were Pressure 2 were Consistency 1 was Determination 1 was Loyalty Note: I highlighted how much the main attribute changed, but actually the size of the change isn't really significant - all that's happening is he's taking Brown's value for that attribute (including a decrease for Temperament).
    In all cases, there were changes to other hidden attributes. In particular, Pressure and Work Rate liked to increase. These aren't directly related to Leadership (which is what Brown was mentoring him in), so I can only guess they were bits of his personality rubbing off on Murray. 
    I was sort of hoping I'd find a pattern, eg "if the Professionalism is picked up, the following other attributes will always change", but it looks like there is at least some element of randomness there.
    All of this is probably dependent on the actual mentor and the player, so it may turn out quite different for other players - still it's pretty interesting (to me anyway).
    Anyway, not sure what it all means - I guess find the best mentor you can, with good personality, good influence, and the ability to train people quickly, assign them to players who are a perfect match and then hope they pass on a trait they are strong in and the player is weaker in (Brown passing on +2 Professionalism to Murray isn't bad, but +8 Work Rate is better!).

    Scratch got a reaction from Rich in Hidden attributes   
    I'm working on an app that will show them, screenshot of the hidden attributes in the spoiler:
    Android only to start, will need a new version each year because FMM changes, will probably cost a few pounds (though if I get it out before FMM22, I'll probably make the FMM21 version free).
    I'm close to releasing a beta test version, but I've been saying that for a while. I want to get it out soon, but also have work, a family, etc.. 🤞
     
    There's another app in the download section, but not sure it shows the hidden attributes or not and most people were saying it's broken - but I haven't actually tried it. I also talked to someone who was working on that (not the original author, but someone else using the source code), so there could be another app coming - but I don't know any details about that.
     
    Also, there is a very good guide by @eternalaurora - Guide to All Personalities (WIP) - which will help you work out some of the hidden attributes for a player based on their personality. And there are other hints in the game in the coach reports etc.

    Scratch got a reaction from lonfo in The 100 Club   
    On the China thing:
    To be fair, I broke the original 100 club by setting a score in China that nobody could touch, so it's not a new problem! 
    The problem with China is that it is a weak league, but the money is insane (at the start of season 3, I was given £165M to spend), so you can really warp things in a way that wouldn't be possible at say Legia.
    Although, to be fair, 2030 Legia is probably serial CL Winners and probably does have that budget. So maybe it's not that different?
     
    Worth noting this is not so much a The 100 Club problem as a problem in general. The same thing will happen in The Record Store and in the challenges (1KCs, DTs, etc). I sort of feel like it's less important for The Record Store, which is more about pushing the game as far as it can be pushed (though I could be wrong on that), but it's more of an issue for the other ones.
    There's probably no easy solution unless you have a separate leaderboards/records for each country, which would be so cumbersome. Or maybe we can group the countries into a couple of tiers and have separate leaderboards for each tier (probably still over complicated)? 
    For the 100 Club, the scope could be narrowed and membership could only be granted to those in a particular league or a small group of leagues. It's a private club and can probably get away with things like that!

    Yeah, @MatiasDFS is right about that, at least that's what I've found. I used to keep everyone with as low a status as possible. Now I give them more than what they want if it looks like they might be a good influence and the dull green influence icons turn bright green! 
    I'm not sure if it helps with mentoring or just squad dynamic, but I'd assume it does. Something to keep an eye on I guess (I might test it sometime).
