Top Eleven Players’ Growth: How Age affects the growth of a player

The age-growth relation is important

To become a good manager in Top Eleven we need to know a few in-depth tricks and tips about this game. Here in this article, we are going to discuss players’ growth and how important it is to know the relation between age and growth in Top Eleven Football Manager.

The more seasons a player plays the more experienced he becomes. We all know this logic from our real-life but Top Eleven has some other ideas. It’s true that a player becomes more experienced with his age, although his growth rate decreases with increasing age. let’s see how experience and ‘growth rate’ intercept each other and influence a player’s career.

Players’ Experience in Top Eleven

When a player is bought from the market or signed from youth academy managers might have noticed rectangular boxes with two colors of intensity,

  • Highlighted (White)
  • Fainted (Gray)

The highlighted boxes denote the required/important attributes for the particular position/s of the player. The fainted boxes denote less important or not necessary attributes for the particular position/s. For a player, the highlighted attributes gaining rate is much higher than the fainted attributes gaining rate. Therefore, less important attributes remain almost at the same level but important attributes keep rising day by day.

Hence after 4/5 seasons less important attributes tend to almost zero and important attributes become nearly twice since when he joined the club. This is how he becomes double experienced than a newly signed player of his OVR/% level, say 90% (same overall rating).

Meanwhile, a manager needs to be aware of the fact that a newly signed player from the market is not an experienced player irrespective of his age. His experience level only increases when he is at the same club.

Players’ Growth Rate in Top Eleven

The growth of a player is highly dependent upon his age. It has been noticed (from experimental results) that an 18yrs player has the highest rate of growth and 32 years has the lowest. The growth rate even becomes negative (-ve) afterward.

We have run the experiment on a group of players for several seasons and the result we have found are depicted in the following table.

Top Eleven Players’ Growth

It is very clear from the above table and picture that the youngest players have the highest growth rate, which ranges from 16% to 20%. 21 years to 23 years (they are also considered as the young player by Top Eleven managers) have a moderate range of growth which is 12% to 16%. Middle age (24yrs to 26yrs) players grow by 8% to 12 % on average.

Aged players (27 yrs to 29 yrs) have a low rate of growth which is about 4% to 8%. 30 yrs to 32 yrs players do not have a significant amount of growth, it’s around 1% to 3% and 33yrs and above players start thinking about hanging their boots so they don’t increase at all and might even decrease OVR/% some time.

Therefore, before buying a player a manager needs to decide, what is his/her first preference, an experienced team or a faster-growing team. Our suggestion is to buy 2/3 very young players every season and making them experienced. With this continuous process, your team will have a perfect balance of Age, Experience, and Growth.

Great post, however, i don’t get how the players get this % growth. Do they just grow automatically from playing matches and as the season goes on or do I have to train them in some way?
