Overwhelmed by attributes


Recommended Posts

Hi

I get overwhelmed when looking at a squad for the first time and how to pick the best players or decide a system.

if I’m looking at CBs for example I don’t know the difference between

CB 1 - 12 tackling 12 positioning 9 anticipation

CB 2 - 9 tackling 12 positioning 12 anticipation 

CB 3 - 12 tackling 9 positioning 12 anticipation 

same goes for midfielders and attackers.

I just see walls of numbers, often that only differ by 1-2 points and get overwhelmed.

Does anyone have a nice method for assessing a squad?

I like the attributes views on the squad screen & then sort highest to lowest in key attributes. I normally filter out the positions I'm looking at then see what players are popping up at the top (& bottom) of the lists. I try not to sweat small attribute differences

Then the coach reports & assessments. The stars give you an overall idea, then the reports (& player personality) give you an idea of the numbers you can't see. Then the player's PPMs & what roles they suit. That should all give you an idea of the sort of players you have

If it's a small amount of gradation between the attributes for centre back A and centre back B, then honestly I wouldn't worry about it. What becomes more important is their role suitability, their hidden attributes like consistency and imp matches, personality etc.

If centre back A gets nervous every game or can't seem to put a decent run of form together compared to centre back B then you have your answer. Take a look at your player reports.

I would also look at their character, work rate, bravery, speed and strength. Also traits are important. Then would pick better overall. So it would be more complex choice for me.

For i.e.I have a regen inside forward which is decent, but far from star and he gets insane ratings every season because of his ambition and speed I guess? He is outperforming Ansu Fati and my other world class inside forward. He is already legend for my club... His composure and finishing are far from perfect but he is insane in his role.

Sorry for spamming with screenshots - but just to compare - Nikitovic vs Almeida. You would pick Almeida every time, but actually Nikitovic is performing better (even though both have consistent performer report).

Hi,

I always check final review (A,B,C,D) in scout report. If it low , I try to check what is problem. Last word by manager, but it useful if you skip something.
If scout reccomend this player too, in most cases I buy him
