It's a broken feature tbh, for some reason I've got way more points than some of my steam friends despite us having similarly successful careers. Obviously, winning major domestic and european trophies will boost your score but all the users with the crazy high scores are almost certainly exploiting or cheating the system somehow.

@tfell if you dont know the system how do you know it is exploited? maybe they are just playing a different style of game than you

@lemeuresnew they're playing a pretty incredible style of game to accumulate hundreds of millions of points while I'm hard pushed to get 50k!

@tfell what team are you? playing a small, poor team and getting good results in league and or europe gives you WAY more points than playing as a top 4 English team, I have noticed that much myself

@lemeuresnew Got a journeyman save going at the moment. Maybe I just haven't played the amount of seasons required to amass many points. Sorry if I stated my opinion as fact!

If the people at the top of the leaderboard are not cheating, they are probably extremely unhealthy, given how their scores indicate that Football Manager is the only thing in their lives.

You get points for winning, simple as that. But, if you use the IGE or pregame editor to make any changes it disables scoring.

The majority of top scorers cheat, it is impossible to catch up playing legit.

Given the average hours to points ratio it is safe to say there is not a single legitimate player in the top 100 at least. Most people use external editors such as FMRTE to superman cheat their teams and rack up ridiculous points to place on the leaderboards. This makes the leaderboard a useless feature but has never been acknowledged much by any dev.

Winning, and winning games that you shouldn't are worth even more points. Say you win the FA Cup with a league 2 team (as many players do using FMRTE in order to boost their scores) then it is worth a lot more than if you won it with a PL side. From what I have seen it is a math equation involving the team reputations (which again, players set theirs to 0 in order to score max points on the leader boards with the superman cheat). Believe what you will, I once wanted to be on the top 20 of the leaderboards and it started my mini crusade to figure out why I couldn't get there despite thousands of hours of play, and I have discovered the external editor answer. Now I will never be on it because I am not willing to cheat to do it.

This is a totally valid criticism. I've never had an interest in those boards for that reason, as I am one of the "anally" players that mostly wants to get results by "just" means. It's also much more rewarding to me. As much as it's always pained me, having a leaderboards is an indication of what would be in store if the entire game was a competitive multiplayer game, rather than what it is now (shudder to think what the Korea MMO must be like). As soon as you pit players up against one another, rather than AI, not only will they take any means they can to compete -- everybody else is forced to follow suit. This isn't strictly about editing. Half the fansites are still dominated by download tactics too that you can basically plug in, never even make a sub and wake up only to find your relegation battler competes for the European spots, average side verge on scoring 2-3 goals per match, and the class ones up to 5+. Not one-off, but consistently. The AI isn't able to cope from day one, none of the game matters anymore. It's naturally the game's flaw, mind. :( It's also a style of playing that is just as viable as the last.

However, as soon as any level of "competitiveness" enters the area, that's what you get.

Yeah, i thought myself how you can rack up Zillions of Points when winning the 3rd League  + Promotion with my Underdog CaC Team gives me 18 Points and it does not grow even after making it into the 1st League?

To me it seems completely broken!
