Determination falling in Tactics, Training & Strategies Discussion Posted January 29, 2019 30 minutes ago, Spurs08 said: Ooh. I thought that a while ago but could have sworn a few knowledgeable people said that was a misconception and that it was primarily used in-match when the team's losing or otherwise in a bad spot. Thanks for the heads up! it does also have an impact of how likely they will keep putting in performances even when things arent going well. more determined hard working player is less likely to just sit back when your losing 1-0. Determination plays a huge role in alot of different aspects of Football Manager.
