Well it kind of does, because they'd be available for more spontaneous training sessions & practice matches.

NO stupid idea imo i think that if they are so good then the number of foreign players will be spread out over the teams anyways

No, there's been no problem with the foreigners and it would show a hint of discrimination in this league.

activity doesn't create chemistery so you'd loose eitherway
In 4s if the player is an amazing foreigner he'd know where to be on the pitch already and that is chemistry.

Not really since team chemistry is an understanding between the team, a player will know what his teammate will do even before he knows.

Take slackers for example, they are all great individuals but what makes them really special is the chemistry, it just makes it so hard defensively when they all know where their teammate will go, and they setup scoring chances so easily

tbf Its applied in many tournaments in real life. I would agree with it if only we didn't have so many foreigners here.

Its applied to tournaments in real life because leagues such as the premier league have a social responsibility to ensure the quality of the young English players who will represent them nationally.

This is the Internet.This is a flash game.There is no need to implement this theres actually no reason on doing it, its completely pointless and unnecessary.

No limit of foreign players + 4V4 big 3defs allowed like HBC

Best decisions made

Maybe changes about the draft/cuts/trades for the future, put a contract system in the future, would be nice

Post by Usopp on Tue 24 Apr 2012, 15:13

I don't think there should be a cap, it's up to the captains if they want to sign UK players. I like most of the foreign players here. Smile

But I feel bad for some of the FM reserves (and other players) who wont get a chance in the league because the captains can sign a european national player just to keep up with the other teams. I know that's what the reserve league's for but they wont have a chance when captains can take their pick out of the top players in other leagues. Those people play in other leagues already.

We have some great players who are improving but will they have to get stuck with reserves forever? How can they get motivated and stay active? I know you can say they will get trained in reserves but they wont get much individual advice and help. Rolling Eyes

I'm really grateful for being signed in s2 even though I was new to FM and haxball, so I'll be disappointed if other players wont get that same chance. I guess I'm trying to say that I don't care how many foreign players there are, as long as the teams are balanced and give inexperienced british players a chance too.

Maybe there's a middle ground to reach, something like a "youth league", basically a reserve league for UK players only and arrange a trial day for unsigned UK players each season.

But its not like people is the reserve leagues who are British should have priority over anyone else the fact remains if you are good enough you will play it as simple as that. Also there is a few on this forum who play in other leagues so its not as if they are being held back because they are not whatever nationally the league contains of.

The best form of motivation is knowing you are not good enough and need to improve, that's how people get motivated by knowing they need to get better.

The way you say give inexperienced British players a chance I really don't get why people feel the league has a social responsibility for these players.They don't. Everyone no matter what nationality should be picked based on how good they and their attitude. The leagues competitive by introducing worse British players means the league standard decreases and it sacrifices the growth of all the players in the league with playing with a better quality of player means you get better so hence vice versa playing with worse players makes you worse it defeats the purpose in the league being competitive.

tbh UK nooby players just gotta play in public rooms to improve their skills like we all did. When public rooms get boring because u're high skilled is when you join leagues.
Anyway I think anybody who plays a minimum and makes efforts to join and play in FM rooms would join a reserves team or a div2 where they sign noobs like me Very Happy

The reserve league is what I think we should really focus on next season. This league can be the ladder to which these "british" or newer FM players who are hungry for an opportunity can come up. There's proof that this works (i.e. stevo, toast, Jds...) and if the players impress, their own captain can just take them up instead of them waiting in the free agents thread. Its less of a gamble as well as you already know the player and how active he/she is. There has to be a value to the league tho and that means no impersonating players and matchdays happening on the scheduled matchday and etc..
