Read on to find out how to become the high flyer among the newcomers.
Always have your strongest players on the pitch!
When you first start the game, your team consists of weak 1★ players for the most part. As soon as you Scout better players, don’t forget to substitute your weak players with the new, stronger players! They won’t be used automatically. When you Scout a player, he will be sent to your Reserves (unless they are full already). Go to ‘My Club’ > ‘Squad Management’ and tap ‘Reserves’. Then drag the stronger player on top of the weaker player you want to substitute.
And if the pitch is already full of strong players, seat remaining strong players on the bench, so that you can substitute tired players during halftime of an ongoing match.
In the beginning, the safest way to do this is having at least one extra player ready for each of the four positions: FW, MW, DF, GK. As soon as you get a feeling for which positions are most prone for producing tired players, you can switch to having more players ready for that position. Another good strategy is having another formation ready for the second half and putting players on the bench that are specialized for its positional requirements. Try out a couple different settings – this is where your experience as a manager comes into play.
5 Types of Training for Every Purpose
The most basic way to develop a player is Individual Training. Pick a promising player and a mini game will start. The higher your score, the more EXP the player gains. If you use more Training Energy, you can multiply the training effect by 3 or 5. But careful! You want to score high to maximize your gains. Get used to the mini game before you waste valuable Training Energy.
In Team Training, all your players on the pitch, on the bench and in your reserves gain EXP. This is different from, for instance, matches where only your players on the pitch and on the bench, but not those in your reserves gain EXP. In general, the EXP gain is rather low, but there is always the chance to gain bonus EXP. Use the Team Training if you want to train multiple players at once or want to use up Training Energy you didn’t spend in Individual Training.
・Daily Training and Coach Training
In Daily Training you can play mini games to win Coaches. Coaches are a type of Item you can use in Coach Training to develop your players. Note that most Coaches additionally require Club Money – the higher his rank, the more Club Money he will cost and the more EXP your player gains.
You can send a player to Training Camp and he will come back with huge EXP gains! This way you can train your players literally while you sleep! Send one to Training Camp before going to bed tonight and when you wake up in the morning your player will have leveled up and be ready for action.
