A wise manager in Top Eleven should/must measure the talents after buying from the transfer market or signing from the youth academy to identify the best player of the squad. It is very important because it will decide, whether to keep him or sell in near future.
If it is found that the player is very talented then a manager must carry/keep him season after season as far as he can. But, if the newly signed player is not enough talented then the manager should look for a replacement as soon as possible and sell the player next season or whenever it is convenient to the manager. Now the question is, ‘How to measure the talent of a player?’ Read till the end to find out.
Identifying the correct and ideal player
To win most of the matches a club needs a talented squad and to register the club name at the top of the table or to win CL/CUP club needs match-winners, like CR7 or Messi. It’s true that super/extremely talented players are very hard to find but signing talented players like Bale, Hazard, and Pogba is not that tough. All that need is, the manager should keep his/her eyes open while buying new players otherwise it will be a waste of tokens and budget. But if mistakenly players like Jones or Welbeck are signed, then it’s better to put him on the bench or find someone better as soon as possible.
We have tried various combinations of training drills over the course of time and finally found out GYM is the best drill to measure or test the talent of all players irrespective of their positions. There are three factors a manager needs to keep in mind while measuring talent.
- Age of the player.
- Overall rating of the player.
- Training Drill level.
We have carried out the experiment with 18 years old player having an overall rating of 90% (around) and with the World Class training drill. Now, look at these pictures and after that, I will explain things one by one.
Skill drop rate according to talent in Top Eleven
Extremely talented players
In the case of extremely talented players, 1 ability or position point will drop after every 3 skill drills (on an average).
In the case of talented players, 1 ability or position point will drop after every 4 skill drills (on an average).
In the case of average players, 1 ability or position point will drop after every 5 skill drills (on an average).
Below average players
In the case of below-average players, 1 ability or position point will drop after every 6 skill drills (on an average) or may take more drills to generate 1 point.
Energy consumption rate
The average energy consumption for a player to gain/drop a skill/position is as follows,
- Extreme Talented: 10-12%
- Talented: 14-16%
- average: 18-20%
- Below Average: 22-24% or more
Explanation of the factors
1. Effect of Overall Rating
In Top Eleven, a player with a high overall rating will consume comparatively more energy to gain skill, therefore, a manager might think the player is not enough talented but that’s may not be the truth. We generally buy players having 80%-99% rated players and the growth rate changes at 75%, 85%, 95% 105%, and so on.
Hence, below 85% of players may consume 11% energy to gain a skill but the player can still be normally talented instead of extremely talented. Hence, the manager has to consider all the aspects as well.
2. Effect of Training Drills
There are four levels of training drills. The world-class level (4th level of training drill), which has the highest impact on the player while training. So if the drill level is low then the managers will experience lesser training output from players.
3. Effect of age
At the age of 18 years, a player has the highest growth rate and lowest at the age of above 30 years. Therefore, a manager needs to consider accordingly while measuring the talent of a player.
These are the three main factors and this is how they works/effects players. So, do check the player’s talent to build up an excellent team to win trophies and lead the club to glory.
