Greatest tutoring improvement ever? World class 15 year old

Recommended Posts

hey guys, so it seems people haven't had much luck with tutoring this year, me included, most of the time i use tutoring just to focus on personality change now, however i was really surprised with a tutoring that made a promising 15 year old kid into a world class player in 2 months and a half!

this is Cyril Lacroix, i bought him at the start of the season for £9,5M from Lille since he had great stats for a 15 year old and my scouts said he had great potential

when he arrived he had a 1 month injury which he recovered, after that i asked my main striker to tutor him to improve his professionalism (the tutoring started 3 november 2049), then in december he improved almost every stat by 2 points! :eek:

it was such a huge improvement that i decided to give him a few matches, the first match was against Saint-Étienne for the French League Cup Quarter Final, he played as the solo striker in a 4-2-3-1 formation, sadly he was really awful with 6.1 rating at half time with me losing 2-1, i said i was disappointing but he didn't improve much, however another player equalized and we went into extra time but his rating was only 6.3, i decided to let him stay even though i still had one sub left, and then at minute 100 he scores a 30 yarder that hits the post on the way in, really amazing moment! his rating then jumped to 8.3 and we held the lead until it was over

after that i play him again in the next match, which is also against Saint-Étienne but for Ligue 1, he scores 2 goals, one header and one from a shot inside the box from a corner

then 2 days later i get this message in my inbox:

and when i check his profile i'm amazed to see that he improved like crazy again and is now world class! :eek: most stats increased by 1 point, some by 2:

this is his tutor, he is also the captain of the team, he has tutored other players before and while they were somewhat successful, no other previous tutoring of his was as good as this one, he is also the team's captain:

oddly, he also gained 2cm (about 0.8 inches) and 1kg (about 2.2 lbs) in these 2 moths, which i don't know if is weird or not for a teenager, is this all the result of the tutoring? why has it worked so well and quickly this time? hell, now i'm gonna try to tutor whenever possible! has anyone else had this much luck when tutoring? i didn't even knew a 15 year old could be this good, however he is 7 days from his 16th birthday :p

the funny thing is that he isn't happy with the high workload of training :D

Well, the weight and height gain along with the crazy stats rises make this an easy case to solve. Your tutor is giving him steroids.

But most importantly, that is wonderful! I don't think I've ever had a player develop that fast in such short time. It usually takes them a while for me. Must be one of those cases where everything just come together perfectly.

haha yeah, the first doping case on football manager!

he still improved more from feb to march, i think he reached his full potential at 16 already, really insane, not sure why it worked out so well, i guess their personalities are so well matched or something

if you don't like the skin then that is fine - each to their own and there are plenty out there, but to criticise my work as you have is appalling.

there have been updates to that skin which are available in the thread and a further update is planned to update some panels and a few other tweaks.

Wow his stats are amazing. I have never seen such a good 16 year old. Is it even possible to be that good at that age? Did Messi have 19 finishing, dribbling, first touch etc when he was 16 in the game?

I've seen some crazy youths pop up around the world this year, this kid is right up there, though!

Wow what a newgen.

Highlights a problem with the game though - a world-class player at the age of 15 and yet your staff think he has the potential to be a world class player....

In real life everyone would judge the player as having the potential to be the be the best in the world, if not one of the best of all time.

i think off-field events are like a random bonus jump for youth players in the game.(ie, a +/- to a key development stat) Don't have references for it right now, but have come across it a few times with friends.

My guess is that the tutor added a bit, and the off -field event took him over the hump and ta-da ! He Harry Kane'd LOL

I think this might be a problem. I did the same to one of my youths and within a week in game, his stats all started to increase.

MUST be a bug!

Whats odd is in the earlier screenshot it shows he is about 3.5 star potential .... the others aren't even black stars.

Nothing odd about that, sometimes scouts/staff have a player pegged wrong. They didn't realise he could be this good, luckily the OP persevered with him, and got a massive reward for it.

The only attribute I've come across that can have a positive or negative change from an off-field event is 'Determination'.

Nope messi didnt have anywere near as good stats that young. Have a look at these shocking stats from FM05 messi aged 17

This is pre patch, cause messi received fixed stats on the march update for this version, just after he scored his first goal for barca. He always started with crazy pace but not so great technicals.

Messi with twice the strength in comparison to his technique and first touch, what a world that must be

Hey Silver Twilight Sparkle,

I hate to do this, but I believe that is a bug. Do you happen to have a save from either before or during the tutoring? If so, could you kindly upload it to our FTP (details here: http://community.sigames.com/showthread.php/441296)?

Thank you,

Seb.
