In the transfer list of my league, the same players keep appearing with higher and higher values while others never show up. Also with the scout, it is not possible to find them. These are players that I could easily find on other leagues: Marcus Rashford and Tammy Abraham.
Why is that happening?
This issue makes the game less interesting first because the transfer list becomes much more limited and second, because the players don't matter any more only the quality that the game gives them. Therefore, It does not matter if you have Mbape in your team because at some moment a random player who no one knows will appear in the transfer list with much higher quality and will be just better than all the forwards that the managers have been training. This is very unrealistic, not fun to play with and it makes OSM becomes a game of speculation.
Well mate, this keeps the game interesting actually. Also, it doesn't matter if the players have a lot higher rating. Actually, you shouldn't be worried much because all not-so-famous players with high ratings belong to teams not in the league or a tournament. So don't worry, you don't have to play matches with those teams. And one more thing, the player with high rating improves every day until someone buys him. Also, his price increases too.
