First of all I wanna thank you for the possibility of playing for free this game in the last 9 to 10 years and try to challenge myself to do my best as a coach of different teams and to achive the goals that I had for that teams.
Also, even if I can't afford to contribute to the development of this game I was a player that was almost each day on your site and help your visibility on the online games.
Until the last year from my point of view you did a great job and both us, the players and you - the game developers were pretty satisfied (at least I think that also you were satisfied with the number of the players involved in the game). This was my positive feedback for you that cannot
be applied in the last moment so enjoy it :).
Now will came the negative feedback and for the development of the game I hope that you will take it in a constructive way. I will also explain my reasons :).
So, in my last seasons and especially in my LAST season there are a lot of things that makes the game to be a fake one and a frustrating one instead of being more close to reality BECAUSE we had a player in the league that was insane :): he played with the team Sunderland in England he had almost all the players with skills 100+ and he wins almost everything. Came on ...
I don't know if he contributes with money or if he access the functionality to group with different players but he sold all his players with insane prices (actual value 13 millions - sold with 40 millions - 250% value, wtf???!!!) and he buy a lot of players with skills higher than 100+. And most of us know that behind all this game results is an algorithm with is calculated also on player skills :).
If you try to compete with such a player you won't stand a chance because this is a virtual game which simulates a result based on some certain values.
As I said I don't know why all this things happen, if is your decision to implement some new features or if the number of cheaters increased BUT the user experience is very, very low in this moment.
And by the way why you don't limit the maximum value to 100? Is very unrealistic to have certain players having 31 to 34 years that start the game with 90-92 and can increase to 110 for total skill value .... in real life, in football the best age is 27 to 30 after that you will decrease because of the age.
So, I don't know if you will do something, if my opinion will be consider or if I will receive an answer from you but after 9 to 10 years as an very active player I think I have a right to say what I think about the game :).
Also please consider that I have 10 years experience in IT industry as a test lead / test manager and this is the game that I start to play when I got my first job and that is why I can have some realistic ideas in the IT field and also why I care for this game.
BUT, also, I can say that I won't play anymore this game is it became more and more unrealistic.
Kind regards and best of luck and hope that you will have the guts to answer this message1
