  1. Appreciate the feedback but the only response I can really give at this time is that there's a lot of football to be played between now and the winter update. We put a lot of effort into rating players based on the previous season. This gives us a solid foundation and a good sample size to asses the performance of players. Our internal testing has given us confidence that our processes are working pretty well. We'll have a clearer picture as to where things stand in the new year and all clubs will of course be reviewed at that point.
  2. We had similar feedback last season, when after 8 games they were sitting 12th with 9 points. They of course went on to finish 3rd. This season they're currently 4 points up on their total at this stage last season. Our soak tests, where we simulate the season hundreds of times, is seeing them on average, finish in 3rd place. We'll always review these things, and of course tweak them in the winter update if we need too, but I think it's a bit to soon to draw any conclusions at this stage.
  3. The Youth Rating field means very little in isolation. @Pete Sottrelis our resident expert here, but I believe it's largely linked to population, which is why you're probably seeing some nations that are not traditionally strong in international football with a higher rating. The Youth Coaching and Youth Facilities values (and to some extent Recruitment) work as mitigating forces in these countries that are not yet turning their potential into ability.
  4. I don't think so, but we have a potential solution that we may be able to get live before the winter update.
  5. Sorry about this @BanOly, we have new Head Researchers for Germany this version and I suspect they were not aware of the issue from last January. Whilst they have the given the player the correct number in the database, it won't actually work as the number is retired in separate documentation (not in the database). We'll get this fixed for the winter update.
