Whilst looking to do some attributes comparison between Football Manager 2014 and Football Manager 2015 I’ve found what I’d call a weird pattern.
Acceleration as Pace can be rated from 1 to 200.
In-game we see it from 1 to 20, but that only happens to avoid confusing users with high numbers, like with all the other attributes.
I’ll just show a few examples that can be seen clearly with the 1-20 scale as well.
So let’s have a look at some of the foreign transfers done this summer in the Premier League.
Carlos Sánchez @ Elche @ FM14 / Aston Villa @ FM15
Lazar Markovic @ Benfica @ FM14 / Liverpool @ FM15
Divock Origi @ Lille @ FM14 / Liverpool @ FM15
Emmanuel Rivière @ Monaco @ FM14 / Newcastle @ FM15
Florin Gardoş @ Steaua @ FM14/Southampton @ FM15
Sadio Mané @ Salzburg @ FM14 / Southampton @ FM15
Federico Fernández @ Napoli @ FM14 / Swansea @ FM15
Benjamin Stambouli @ Montpellier @ FM14 / Tottenham @ FM15
Brown Ideye @ Dynamo Kyiv @ FM14 / West Brom @ FM15
Cristian Gamboa @ Rosenborg @ FM14 / West Brom @ FM15
Georgios/Giorgos? Samaras @ Celtic @ FM14 / West Brom @ FM15
Questions for the readers
1. Would Cristian Gamboa’s progress be possible at his age?
2. Who’s got the fault, the previous researcher, the latest one or is it just a game policy?
This is a clear pattern. Players transferred to the prem, especially from lower leagues always improve drastically over the summer…
Well 15 dribbling for Samaras is a joke
Player’s attributes always change season to season no big surprise here that a few players got more pace considering the age of most of them plus just after the world cup where players can be scouted more easily and assigned attributes accordingly
