Preparation and experience
There are now some improvements on their way. We have previously mentioned that some changes to tactics are coming. We have also been working on an improvement for the rules about how many matches the players need to play to get 100% development. The rule today doesn’t take in consideration how many matches that are played in the leagues and that is something that will change with the new rules. The new rules will take a lot of other things in consideration too. But we’ll get to that later on. The first thing we will describe is the new tactical option. And after that we will tell you about the new rules for development on the player’s skill.

Tactical option to prepare for opponent’s formation
You will be able to prepare your team for how your opponent will play. If you think your opponent will play 4-4-2 you will be able to choose to prepare your team for that by selecting that formation in a dropdown list on the tactics page. The tactical option will also be possible to save within the default tactics.

If your opponent uses that formation this will have a negative effect on your opponent’s ability to create chances. How much effect it will have depends on how accustomed your opponent is to playing with that formation. That is determined by the formations used by your opponent the last 3 matches (including friendlies). The more matches (out of the past 3 matches) the opponent has played with a certain formation, the better he will be at playing that formation.

In other words this means that if the opponent uses a formation that he has used before and you didn’t prepare for that formation then your opponent will get a boost in his ability to create chances.

This new feature will replace the old bogey team factor. The effect of this tactical option will work in the same way as the old bogey team factor and affect the opponent’s team to create chances. The examples below will use the old bogey team factor (BTF) as a measure of the effect.

This example below will show:
CFP = Correct formation preparation
NMFO = Number of matches formation has been used by the opponent (out of his latest 3 matches)
Effect = The effect on the opponent’s ability to create chances
BTF= The effect of the old bogey team factor.

Individual match experience needed for development
The number of matches a player needs to have played to get 100% of his potential development at the season update has earlier been a fixed number of matches for all players in all leagues. As this has been quite blunt and not always fair we have decided to make it more sophisticated. Instead of having a fixed number of matches, the number of matches required for a player to get 100% out of his potential development will depend on various factors like the number of rounds in the league and the surrounding team-mates. If the player plays with older and more skillful players that act as mentors, the player will need fewer matches than if the player plays with younger and less skillful players. This will be calculated in two parts where one part calculates the “mentor value” of the team part the player belongs to (defence or offence) and the other part calculates the “mentor value” for the whole team. There will be minimums and maximums for how much “experience” the player can get on one match. As earlier the goalkeepers won't need as much match experience as the other players. Another thing is that the players that is a leader will give more match experience to his team-mates than a similar player without the special quality of being a leader.

On the player’s page you will be able to check how much “match experience” the player has gained during the current season. This will be shown as a percentage. This percentage also shows how much your player will get out of the skill update at the season update. The maximum of the match experience is 100%. This means that if the player only has gained 15% match experience then the player will only develop 15% at the skill update.

The number of matches required to get 100% match experience during the season will be hard to say. But in leagues playing 14 rounds (like in our official league systems), the minimum number of matches required will be about 3 matches. In leagues playing fewer rounds the minimum required will be less than 3 matches and in leagues playing more rounds during the season the minimum required will be more than 3 matches. One thing that also is new is that if a player is substitued and only plays 5 minutes it will not count as a whole match but instead be counted as if the player played 30 minutes. In other words the matches will be divided into half hours.

Times for implementation
The new tactical option of formation preparation will be implemented Tuesday the 31st of July next week. The option to set formation preparation will show up on the tactics page for matches scheduled from Tuesday the 31st at least from Tuesday night the week before. This will give you time to set your tactics with the new tactical option.

The new match experience requirements should be implemented on Friday the 10th of August. This means that the leagues which have a season start date that is later than Friday the 10th of August will get their new season with the new rules. All other leagues will have the old rules (with fixed number of required matches) until their next season.

If there will be any changes of implementation dates we will let you know.
