Hi there....back again with a few more suggestions that I think I missed out on my last post since playing the game in more depth.
Be A Pro mode:
I think with the nationality you choose for your player shouldn't necessarily mean you always play for said chosen nationality if you have played in a specific league and not get chosen for your nation (e.g. If I choose to create a Belgium player and I spend 3+ seasons in the French leagues, I should get the option to maybe decline a call-up from the Belgium national team as my player may want aspirations to play for France?) It happens in the real world, so it should be replicated in-game.
On the flip-side, the chances of being chosen for your nationality should be based on the reputation/size of said nation (e.g. creating a Spanish or Uruguayan player should be easier to get into the national team than say for a player who is a New Zealander or South African)
Realistically your chances of becoming a kicker for your team should not increase if you are a forward - I currently have a Belgium No.8 player (in his first season) who is getting closer to being the "designated kicker" for his team, I don't know if he will become the kicker as I haven't got that close yet, but just the potential of it happening doesn't make sense to me.
Look to add more depth into the game by adding a facilities section for the My Club option - this could include a leveled system which you would use money (from my budget suggestion in my previous post) which could upgrade said facilities. (e.g. include a Head Coach, which could help improve your squad improve attributes quicker with each upgrade. A physio or fitness coach, which could help your squad recover from games quicker, as well as recover from injuries quicker. A Marketing team which could help your club gain more revenue from games & potentially sponsorship deals? - if anyone else has any other ideas for this I'm all ears, but I'm just spit-balling here 😂)
If you decide to start at a smaller club, depending on your results, over time (as your reputation increases) you should receive offers from bigger clubs from all over the world.
I think this one has been mentioned in a couple of other posts, but there should be league specific statistics that show the whole league in one section, and not just one club in the league e.g leading goal kickers or league top try scorers. This could be in a separate tab perhaps?
When I create a player, for whatever reason when I finish them, they come up 1cm shorter and 1kg lighter than what I entered for them? - This must be a bug surely?
When looking back at previously created players, for some reason when I go to the height and weight section they reset to 1.85m & 103kg? - Another bug?
When creating a player, the foot that my player is set to always seems to swap each time I end up on the name and age part (e.g. If I set my player to right-footed, then he'll end up being left-footed unless I change it just before confirming my creation. These bugs aren't game changing, it's just frustrating as it wastes time and it means I have to re-do players at times.
Have a team management option for clubs before entering a game (on all forms of games - Be A Pro, Career mode, Kick-off etc.). Like in most sports games (FIFA, MADDEN etc.) you can change your match day line-up without having to change your ideal line-up....it would just make the process of changing your team that much smoother...again, not a game changer, just a quality of life improvement.
I think you should have the option to remove the lines for players entering the rucks and mauls, as well the set-plays (once they're in motion)....especially if I'm the defending team, as it makes it far too easy to defend against. I think this would make it more realistic for the types of players who want it to be more realistic.
Rather than having 39 countries to choose from for created players, just give us a list of countries and use their actual flags on the player profile...that way you can make sure that all countries can be represented in the game and include everyone that wants to play this game.
Rather than having just a generic age option for players, allow people to input a specific date of birth, this will mean that players will age more varied rather than every single player aging at the same pace after each finished season (in whatever type of game you decide to play). I know this might be difficult from a data point of view, but it's just a suggestion.
Is there any way you can add more generic stadiums to the game? They don't have to be fully licenced stadiums, just more variety would better.
I hope I've not written too much for everyone, but if people have any more suggestions, don't hesitate to put a comment on this post (the more the merrier!). Keep up the good work....and hopefully we'll hear something about a new patch soon 😉🏉
