    @Lakshay-Ahluwalia That's what we say, it's too easy to get better players, just by buying them from the transferlist. Would be nice if it's more difficult to finish above your objective. I can pick a team with a goal of 13-16th place and still easily get in the top 3-5 without even looking to my tactics. That's some heavy poep.

    @Donh1993_NL thnxšŸ˜ŠšŸ˜„šŸ˜ u are correct.šŸ˜‰


  • @Lakshay-Ahluwalia said in Transfer madness:

    @timh1992_NL u should join the leagues made by @barouette. These pros take a 15 objective team and make it the top 4 strongest teams in any leagues. He may be present in the French forum. Becoz he is french. He has a very popular insta page of OSM and has 2 strong crews ( one is golden and is main) and (2nd is for recruiting managers to the main and it's a blue crew). We all were playing in Egypt and Barouette took a 15 objective team and made it 2nd strongest and me was first with 1st objective team. Currently in 2 of his created leagues he is the strongest player in terms if both money and team with a objective 10 and 7.

    Look on my 3rd slot, my crew leaguešŸ˜‚all timers and BC compensation turned off. This is how you build squads. I have over a billion value starting from around 30m and Iā€™m about 7th in the squad buildersšŸ˜

    actually yeah,its kind of unrealistic...basically with the events....i have a newcastle career mode on matchday 27 and alreeady have a squad worth 534M....my highest rated players are 104 ferran torres(20 years),99 longstaff.s(23 years),108 oblak(27 years) and 98 hernandez(24 years)...and i didnt use bosscoins for either transfers or training

    I personally feel tht its time to make managers understand tht squad building is not the only way to be a successful manager in OSM, bevoz i see a lot of posts stating tht transfers are unfair. I am not for nor against any promotional events( even though some are not for everyone). If u ask me, There are 2 ways to be successful in OSM1) Squad Building
    2) Tactics Master.
    If you are good at one of these there is a high chance tht u are successful ( in the sense thtu get few trophies and finish in top 4 etc). But to be a OSM **professional ** u need to master both. ( this applies to Free to Play managers like me and others, becoz any one who buys biss coins is already a Squad Builder).
    I can proudly say tht i am not a professional and neither have i mastered squad building BUT i can be considered a best manager.( me not successful eitheršŸ˜‚).
    Now i can give u my own example of why squad building is not at all necessary from the below screen shots:Screenshot_2020-08-28-14-53-02.png Screenshot_2020-08-28-14-53-09.png Screenshot_2020-08-28-14-53-26.png Screenshot_2020-08-28-14-53-30.png Screenshot_2020-08-28-14-53-40.png Screenshot_2020-08-28-14-53-52.png
    As u can see even though i am one of the weakest, I am just 3 points shy of 3rd place in this Ghana league created by Barouette ( againšŸ˜‚).
    Now even though i am not a master of squad building, i am pretty good at it. But as u can see i was not soo good in Ghana. Mostly becoz i took the league lightly. Becoz in the start there was no difference between a objective 15 team and 1 team. The teams were all similar. I let my guard down, barely sold my players and here i was, one of the weakest. Yet using tactics i am still in the top 5.

    I understand tht working adults and people cannot utilise the transfer madness event and use transfers to their advantage. But wht they can( any manager irrespective of age can be successful by being good at tactics) whether their squad is strong or not. So in my eyes i still feel tht OSM is not biased towards free to play managers like us who don't use boss coins. Instead we all have a fighting chance thru tactics. This makes OSM equal. Tht irrespective of whether u pay or not, u can still win and beat players who use a lot of scouts and transfers and win trophies.
    **That is why i said tht to be a professional at OSM u need to master both **
    Also keep in mind tht squad building mastery doesn't mean tht u always have the strongest squad, it means tht u can create a strong squad no matter how weak u were. For me having a strong squaf doesn't mean being in top 1. It means being in top 4 and having certain backups.

  • English Users

    @Lakshay-Ahluwalia Backups mean this:
    Having 3 first team forwards, 2 or 3 more as backup ( to fight weak computers and managers)( also mostly to make sure the first team members reamin fit).Screenshot_2020-08-28-15-12-00.png

    Having minimum of 7 midfielders of which 4 are your first team and the rest backup ( to play weak teams). Even though i am a very frequent user of 433 i still keep 4 main midfielders incase i use 343 or any formation of 4 to 5 midfielders.Screenshot_2020-08-28-15-12-42.png Screenshot_2020-08-28-15-12-49.png

    Lastly having minimum of 8 defenders of which 4 are your first team. (In this u can see i have 7 becoz i sold my 8th defender yesterday becoz i have no use of backup players as my league is ending and i need money for winners cup, same reason why u can see son on the list along with kovasic.)Screenshot_2020-08-28-15-15-46.png Screenshot_2020-08-28-15-15-52.png .
    Goalkeepers you shuld have 2 or 3 ( I keep 2 only) for goalkeepers if u have a strong young one like donnarumma or dean or ramsdale, u keep them and make them strong by training and make them high level. If u have old, then buy them. Like here. Had a young one but he was weak, so i bought a strong one to replace him.Screenshot_2020-08-28-15-22-42.png
    Hope u all found this useful. Becoz taking screenshots and writing all this took some time and chargešŸ˜‚šŸ˜‚.

    I am glad some of you agree with me. I know it is a simulator but it is weird to make it possible for every competition to become a fantasy competition as the season progresses.

    I am a little dissapointed that there are almost no admins responding and if they are, they deny the case.

    I am hoping there will be a poll amongst the players to see if the majority wants this updated.

    Thanks for responding everyone.

    A number 16 goal team has upgraded his team value to higher than a number 4 goal team in just two days with the side note that there is transfer chaos event at the moment.

    And a number 10 team has the 3rd highest value team in the same competition.

  • English Users

    @timh1992_NL use tactics to beat them then. If they are that great at squad building in 2 days then they are super human ( maybe pay to play?). Even i cant make a team in 2 days to surpass objective 4. Its sad to see this...
    When i wrote all the above it was meant for all of us who start at the same level. Looks like anyone who can do that in 2 days is clearly not equal to us brother..šŸ˜”šŸ˜”
