FM16 Editor and scripts

Dear Football Family,

I'm working on a pet research project, using FM16 as a theoretical model.


Question: Is it possible to separate players by skill level simply by tracking their win/loss ratio only over a number of games (when they play on randomised teams)? And if it is possible, how many games does it take to do it?



1. Create 220 players of graduated skill (20 players in each position ranging from skill of 1 to 20).

2. Create 20 identical clubs.

3. Randomly assign the 220 players among the clubs.

4. Play a round of matches (10 matches in total).

5. Record the results.

6. Update W/L ratio for each individual player.

7. Repeat from step 3 until the W/L ratio of the best and worst players remain 3 standard deviations from the mean.


As you can see, step 3 is the most arduous step. It involves randomly assigning 220 players to 20 clubs. I have no expertise in script writing, and I'm wondering if anyone could advise or devise a script that would automate this step in FM16 Editor.


Thank you for your attention.
