    Default Highest Natural Player Value(600k to £36 million)





    As you can see I signed this lad for 600k after seeing him in the Ivory Coast youth side he has become a great player and is now valued at £36 million. I was wondering is the highest natural value a player can have limited in any way? I know a player takes up the value they are sold for and then it levels out to what their true value is but can he go any higher and what determines it?

    I always wondered this myself, i also thought the wage a player was on played a part, althought that may be a myth

    I think it depends on the league reputation he is in.

    I have no evidence which is a shame, but I signed a player for Tottenham Hotspur on FM10 for £40k when he was 18, by the time he got to 29 he was worth £11m

    Doesn't sound as much as the first post, but I was delighted that I found him for such a price

    Always great to pick up a player that can perform at the top level for that price no matter what their value goes to still a bargain.

    I think wage matters because I have very good players in my team, some are the best in their positions, but none of them are worth more than 23 million. My highest earner is a defensive midfielder on 65k, but the rest of the players are on less than 50k.

    Things that determine value are probably age, contract [wage+length] and reputation. I wouldn't be surprised if CA and PA figure into it as well.

    PA as well, higher potential players generally have higher values even if they have lower CA. Also as stated above, reputation, age, contract and possibly reputation of the team?

    I have to say he looks class! His composure is not as good as some of his other stats, but still, he looks very good.

    I would agree not sure if reputation of team or league would come into it maybe both. He will be 25 when contract negotiations start I am sure he will want more than 100k a week so there is potential for his value to go up. I would like £40 million but I am not sure, I did a test earlier on and saved before hand and Barcelona bid £76 million for him. If he wants too much money in a few years I might have to sell him.

    His other stats make up for composure 53 goals in 57 games last season.

    Yeah that guy is beastly.

    I signed a defender for about 500k from Vaslui or whatever the team is called. He's worth £21.5 million now. Not bad for a defender.

    I've never seen higher than 36 million and that was ronaldo when he was hitting 45 goals a season for me.

    Same for me as well. I haven't seen higher than 36m. Pato and Eden Hazard have been stuck on 36m for the last 3 seasons, sometimes dropping to 35m. The only other player valued the same is Messi, while C. Ronaldo also is on 30m.

    Messi starts the game at 35.5 million pounds so that has to be pretty close to the limit.

    I think there is a £36 million / €40 million cap. Players can only exceed this value by getting bought for a higher price.

    I have a 40 million euro player in my UTA team from Romania. I bought him for 5 mil. I turned down a 88 mil offer for him from Barcelona.

    One season later and he is now worth £36.5 million, I wonder if that is the limit.

    I've had Cesc at 38.5m before he was injured, not seen higher than that though on my own games.

    My highest was 36.5 million pounds, for a 198/199 CA/PA striker who's performing really well in a top team in a top league (ie rep). If it can be higher I wouldn't know why this guy or Ackter's James Tunnicliff's not there hah.

    Highest in my game at the moment is £36.5m for a striker I had signed that has been at that club for around ten years. Highest I've actually managed is £36m, although he may have been higher after I left Pompey.

    I have a self imposed weekly wage limit so might have to cash in on him after one more season.

    Tunnicliffe did go higher, but that's the only pic I have of him at his peak.

    As others have said, I believe £36.5 million is the max, or very near. I don't think any player can be >£38 million unless affected by a transfer.

    Yeah as Ryknow said, it seems that £36.5m is the maximum natural value. Never seen it higher, and my striker who is by far and away the best in the world is now at that value, and even when his attributes etc. increase, his value remains the same.

    Signed a Guinean regen striker at 18, straight from Guinea, for 50k. He's now worth £36m and has banged in 50+ in the last two seasons.

    Best I have had is I signed a Russian regen striker called Tereschenko for £6,000 (yes £6k), he is now worth £16.25 million (still only 23). He is by far my best ever signing value wise (not including bosmans).

    I got a CB I signed for £2.5 million, now worth £34.5 million natural value. Highest I've ever had personally. 36.5 is highest on my current game I've seen.

    Best i've had is Romelu Lukaku , who is currently valued at £36m. I signed him from Arsenal in 2013 for just £3.8m. It is now 2020 and he is by far the best striker in the world.

    i bought a turkish player to liverpool, called turan for about 13mill pounds. for the last four years he's been brilliant, scoring and setting up goals. his CA/PA is also reasonable (3 1/2 star rating) but his value never goes above 7.75mill pounds. really annoys be because he regularly gets double figures each, for goals and assists.

    Had a player come through my youth squad, now worth about £36m at 23yrs old. World player of the year etc. Guy is a brillant AMC, but plays in MC for me as I do not use an AMC. Been playing in first team since he was 16, lol. Not bad considering I am Man Utd

    surely the way to check the natural value limit is to create a player in the editor with 20s for everything, a long contract with high wages at a high rep team in a high rep league, start the game and see what happens. Then we should in theory know what the highest value is. simples

    I picked up a Portuguese winger in my current save with Southampton for £900k 5 seasons ago, he's now worth £15.5m and rising. He also won English footballer of the year last season.

    My striker Wilson has now reached £37m, that's the only time I've ever seen a player with a higher natural value than £36.5m which I've seen a few times. Will post a screenshot if people want

    How long he'll stay like that, or whether he'll improve more, who knows, but that's the first time I've seen that happen

    I play a 4-2-3-1, with 2 CM's rather than DM's. Basically the entire tactic is focussed on getting the ball to Wilson in behind the defence, so the other players in the team don't score too many, but he more than makes up for it. Came up through my youth academy too, he's almost the perfect player!

    His instructions are kind of a modified Advanced Forward (Attack). Somewhere between that and a Poacher anyway. And yeah, he's used as a target man with run onto ball instructions.

    Think it was 1200ish in 700ish matches. I have a screenshot somewhere but can't be bothered to look through them all again.

    He never did that well for England (compared to club form) because the English FA are racists and refused to hire the most successful manager of all time on the basis that I'm Welsh.

    That's an incredible goal ratio mate, well done. If Wilson beats it, I'll let you know ;) Unlucky on the racism though, I never managed to get the Scotland job as an Englishman actually now that I think about it, despite being the best candidate and applying 3 times...

    He should be able to - I wasted Tunnicliffe's first four or five season (I think it was) before changing to the tactics I used to make him score like that.

    I had a youngster through that looked even better than Tunnicliffe attribute-wise, but he just never performed anywhere near the same levels.

    That's the most frustrating part of FM I find, when you've got a player with incredible attributes who, no matter what you do, can't play at the level you'd expect.

    Don't get me wrong, he still played unrealistically well, but not to the absurd levels some players seem to go to.

    He's about the purest goalscorer I've ever seen

    Yup, and he just couldn't get more than 1 in 1 on average

    unlucky mate, even though that's still a great average, once you've had a player like Tunnicliffe or Wilson, you can't help but expect more

I know a player takes up the value they are sold for and then it levels out to what their true value is but can he go any higher and what determines it?
    well done have a cake.
