Injuries in football manager 2019, no matter what option I press player has the same injury length

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Just wondering if this is supposed to be happening in the game, not sure if it is a bug.

 

I am talking about when your player gets injured, and you are given three choices as to what type of treatment he should receive.  The three choices are Specialist, Doctor & Physio.  The game actually says "letting PLAYER NAME see a specialist would be the best option".  Now I am wondering if this line is true or not.  I will show you pictures below of what I am talking about.

My player Coutinho is injured, and I have three choices what type of treatment he should get. No matter which one I choose, his injury length is the same (the longest one 6-7 weeks).

Now if you are wondering, the reason I found this out was because my player got a bad injury (A serious Viral Infection).  I thought to myself, just my luck and I am a pessimist.  I remember when I got that injury, the options were 4-5 months, or 6-7 months.  I remember pressing one of the 4-5 months one and the player getting a 6-7 months injury.  Because I did not notice until days later, I could not reload my game as I normally would when things like this happen to me.  At first I thought maybe I pressed the wrong option (6-7 months), but then I searched the players name in my inbox and realised that I did not press the wrong option.  He just got the longer injury length.  I was infuriated and since then I said to myself when I next get a injury with 3 choices of treatment, I will save before I pick one just so I could investigate. 

 

So now I have done that and from what I have seen, no matter which option I choose the player gets the long injury so I see no benefit in me going for Specialist, instead of Physio.  When my player is injured for the same time.  Please tell me what you guys think, did I do something wrong?  Or is it a bug in the game?

I don't know about injury length is it a bug or not but there is still value in sending them to specialists because he should fix the injury for good. With physio there is higher chance of the same injury recurring.

I didn't know that there was another benefit in sending the player to specialist.  I thought the only reason was for him to be injured for less time.  You are probably right though, and thanks for your answer.

The "Doctor" option also seems to fix the long-term problem potentially (says it in the text).

Many teams do not have doctors, so the specialist is the only option other than physio.

Teams with doctors have the additional option of the doctor, which often appears to have the same potential effect as a specialist, except that, because (s)he's already on your payroll, you don't have to pay the fee.

Ok, thanks for your answer.  Yes I have realised that now after the previous user posted.  The "Doctor" option is the one that I always press, and I press this for the reason you said it's free.  I also use to press it cause I thought the player would be injured less time.  As I said before I am not sure if this is a bug / glitch in the game, or if the game is behaving the way it's suppose to.  If this is not a problem in the game, and the game is working how it should.  Then this is just something that will always confuse me.

The length of time they give is a estimate so it's sometimes longer than said time.
