Football Manager 2020 Feedback Thread in Football Manager General Discussion Posted November 24, 2019 31 minutes ago, hazzabish said: Well no matter what mentoring group my young players are in they always pick up positive and negative traits, despite me making sure I have great role models such as Milenkovic Savic and Ruben Dias. I know the old system might have been slighlty unrealistic but it was great that you could negate youngsters coming up with atrocious fundamentals with the right tutoring. That seems less doable now. Personality adjustments can happen with or without mentoring. If you put 25 players in a squad together they will begin to learn from one another, positively or negatively. Mentoring is simply a tool to help you focus this. It allows you to bias Player A towards Player B, rather than leaving them to learn (or not) off whoever they please. It will not necessarily overcome every undesirable trait but it will allow you to better control the personality (and player traits) of your squad.
