Ability is not matching

Recommended Posts

But he has 4 stars rating here, so which one is correctly showing his ability?

I have a similar issue where the star rating is different when I look at the Squad Depth screen versus the Coach Report. Both are supplied by the assistant manager so not sure what would cause the difference?

This might be a bug. But I think in team report assistant analyzes the whole team players and put the squad situation in count. Personally the player may have 4 star, but he may be a level 3,5 star player when compared to whole squad.

The stars are also falling when you begin to rise your squad quality. That's why I thought, it might be something like that.

on the coach report is he 'inconsistent'? he was in my game when i bought him, maybe that effects the stars too?

Yes, but he is not the only one

I've really tried to start ignoring star ratings. Even having someone in the coaching staff with good JA/JP doesn't help that much. Idk how mnay times I've had "throwaway" youth players with 1.5 star potential only to see them being 3 star or more potential a few months later.

Same goes for first team players. Some of my best and most consistent players in my teams are only rated 2 stars. And then if you get a very very good player in a squad forget it, because it will alter all your star ratings lower it seems like. So better to just not pay attention or just use it as a VERY rough guide.

@puffascruffowitz you are right, many good players may not have good ratings, but we may miss some potential young players if we totally ignore it, use it as a rough reference is ok.

I used to use the star rating as a first quick assesment if a player was worth further investigation, but now I try not to see much of it considering 5 star can be anything from suitable for L2 to leading PL player. Attributes seems rather irrelevant as well since there is a lot of player with good attributes that has no abilility and lots of players that have bad numbers but good ability. Not really sure what I should look at right now. I know the star system takes both your team and current league into account but still I get annoyed when I get a report that someone would be a key player and then look at the report and see he is decent for a couple of divisions below us. That migth be a curse of too quick advancement up the leagues but maybe the team and league things should get separated into two or be more about the league since I get a list of where that player fits with the rest of my players in that position. 

I ususally use trials to assess a player if the initial scouting looks positiv, since I sign most my players on free and the result is usually that a player's star rating changes pretty much the same minute he signs the contract. The different factors also make the star system a bit unstable as one signing can revamp it in the entire team. In my opinion it would be more useful to have the stars represent how competitive  a player might be for the current level you are playing.

In my limited experience I think that relying too much on star ratings actually has me miss some players. Too often I used to only pay attention to 3.5-5 star potential players, but that's a very poor scouting method. Also next time you get a youth intake keep on a few of the poor potential players. You'll find that after a season or 2 one or two of them will look much more promising. Even if they didn't have the quality ot make it to the first team you can always sell them for a profit. Although I imagine that's largely based on facilities and youth coaching.
