Might as well do it now

Southend Utd Serie A players
Prediction
  • Giuseppe Pezzella (18/75): +2
  • Ibrahima Mbaye (21/84): no change
  • Piotr Zielinksi (21/85): + 1
  • Gianluigi Donnarumma (17/85): not sure if he will get another raise that fast. Hoping for + 1 at least
Pezzella +3. A bit of surprise, considering Palermo is close to bottom in Serie A. Maybe Serie A is rated higher than Ligue 1

Southend Utd Serie A players
  1. Giuseppe Pezzella (18/75): +3 (to 78)

In a typical Game World, with 38 league games, a player evaluates their season at regular intervals. This usually occurs around Turns 12, 24 and 36.

At each interval a player will have a 'target' number of games that they will have expected to play. Every game that a player could lose fitness in, counts towards their target.

Within your squad each player's target is worked out below:

  • Your 5 highest rated players and those rated 94 or higher expect to play in approximately 80% of the number of Turns;
  • Players rated 92 or higher expect to play in approximately 75% of the number of Turns;
  • Players that would expect to be in your first choice line-up and those rated 90 or higher will expect to play in approximately 65% of the number of Turns;
  • Players that would expect to be a substitute if you selected your first choice line-up and those rated 89 or higher will expect to play in approximately 30-40% of the number of Turns.
  • The rest of the players within your squad will only expect to play a few (if any) of the number of Turns.
Goalkeepers are worked out slightly differently, with your highest rated and those 88 or higher expecting to play in approximately 90% of the number of Turns.


Please note that with regards to substitutions, if a player comes on as a substitute then it will count as half an appearance irrespective of what minute they entered the match.

For example, in a league with 38 games (38 Turns) a 94 rated or higher player expects to play in 31 games were they lose fitness. This could be 25 league starts, 8 substitute appearances and 2 cup games. Alternatively 31 league starts (missing 1 in every 6 league games) and no cup games.
Concern rules seem to be back to 'normal'

I think I've got the interpretation of that right @RedSky

Memphis and Sterling are only in the red because it looked like the concerns were out of all games played for a period rather than just the number of turns so I was working on other players but as they're all fine I should be able to get Memphis and Sterling back in the green.

Great stuff, you've got Division 5 in the bag. Very close in Division 1 - three teams on 35 points at the top.

Donnarumma will get a concern by Turn 24, and another one by Turn 36. The most he can play until end of season is 80% (which is less than the required 90%). Just need to keep continue playing him until his concern drops

Dembele is currently at 50%. Hopefully he can reach 65% by Turn 24

The rest should be OK

Ahh nice, thanks for letting me know.
In case you miss it. Cup games still count. % appearance has changed though

  2. Ibrahima Mbaye (21/84): no change

Its a joke, he is the starting goalie for Milan. Should be 88 minimum.

+ 1 is the most he could have gotten this time. It is just his first season as Milan's first-choice keeper, and he needs to continue performing at similar level, if not better. Would have little room to improve in his SW rating had he gotten an 88 this time. Plus Milan are not doing well this season

I must admit I was worried that he could get like 87 this review, hence I sold Alisson (whom is also 87 rated) early. On hindsight, I should have kept Alisson longer (who would probably rise in next Brazil Serie A review). Good thing is, Alisson is just decent in my team, plus no one can bid on Donnarumma now, since I only have 2 keepers :)
