Youth leagues are ready!

Bubbles, FC Sunnyvale 21 July 2020, 16:04

Lately, we have been coding like mad in order to finish implementing youth leagues.

This is the last major feature in youth squads and we have posted it on the server today.

With separate youth leagues, there is now more to play for, since all your youth squad opponents are now on equal footing.

In addition, your youth squad is no longer limited by the fact that it is not allowed to overtake the senior squad, so now you can aim for the 1st division!

Lower energy consumption

Many managers have expressed that it costs too much energy to have the players on the youth squad.

Therefore, the youth leagues only contain 12 squads each. This means that they only play 22 matches per season, instead of the usual 30, so the players will save a lot of energy that they can spend on training instead.

Fewer matches has no effect on the players' mood, since they only lose mood if they miss a match.

In addition, your youth squad no longer risks meeting super-strong senior squads, which drain the players' energy.

Higher attendance in youth leagues

Because the youth leagues have fewer match, we have increased the number of spectators so that the youth squads' total income will be the same as before.

All youth squads will be moved on Sunday (July 26th, 2020)

Right now, the youth leagues are empty, but that will change on Sunday.

During the season update on Sunday, all youth squads will be moved to the youth leagues. The squads will be distributed according to VIFA rank.

For the rest of the week we will be monitoring the game and fixing any bugs that may have occurred due to the changes. In addition, we will be testing, testing, and testing again, to make sure that the season update on Sunday will run smoothly.
