Great game but needs adjustments
The game is amazing and very addicting but there are many concepts of the games that I personally don't like. For starters the skill system doesn't make sense especially since we only have so much energy and most of it is spent on random tasks that we need to decide on. If you train your skills it shouldn't deteriorate because you're using those skills in the match, as long as you're playing, and the should relatively stay the same. Another problem I have is the relationship maintenance. It's impossible to keep up 5 relationships in the game, especially one action can cause another to dramatically drop. Ridiculous actions such as going shopping with my teammates and not buying anything causes my relationship with them to deteriorate, as well as my energy, that seems very petty. Lastly the teammates themselves during a match are not very good, they want the ball straight to them without them actually try hard to get the ball, and no matter how good you do if your team loses your score doesn't often reflect your work
I loved this game when I first played it on Kongregate and when it initially launched on iOS. The gameplay was, and still is, very addicting. But it's all the stuff off the pitch that has become very frustrating. Just about every action and extra feature has changed to turn it into a F2P game. So even those who bought the game originally are now subject to crummy, unbalanced mechanics that take away from the joy of the game. When making a decision between fans, teammates, etc., I always cringe knowing that one of my stats is bound to drop because the game needs me to spend a game's worth of earnings to retrain the skill and buy an energy drink. And your assets depreciating, all to drain the player of their money. These are just two examples of mechanics that did not exist in early versions, and provide zero improvement to the game after being introduced. Still, the mechanics on the pitch are great. I just feel sorry for recent players, hearing about how difficult it is to make progress when early in the career. I do not recall it being that difficult when the game first came out.
Fun at first, but hard to maintain
In the beginning of the career, it's fun and relatively easy to maintain good relationships while increasing skills at a good rate.
But like many others have said, it spirals out of control a bit. As soon as you sign a new contract with a new team, you're thinking "woohoo more money finally! BUY ALL THE THINGS!!". Unfortunately that's not the case: the new starting relationships with boss/team/fans is essentially at half, meaning the ball comes to you maybe once or twice per half. This makes it difficult to play a good game and to increase relationships. Almost all the money you make goes into just trying to keep your energy at a good enough level to start and also maybe boost at least 1 or 2 skills or relationship every couple games. Not feeling like I'm making much progress...
The point where I feel compelled to spend real money to make progress is typically the point where I discontinue playing. Getting pretty close to that point
