Default Preferred positions

Just a quick idea for you guys to mull over.

How about letting players choose a preferred position that allows them to get a skills boost if they play in that role.

For example, I'm a def, but if I had the preferred pos of Centre Back then how about offering a 10% skills boost or something when I play in that role, if I'm moved to left or right back then the boost would not apply anymore.

It works for every position on the field and would enable players to be specialists rather than a generic def, mid or striker.

It could add a bit more of a tactical edge to squads too, just a thought.

To stop people from simply changing their preferred pos if they move to a new role, there could be a maximum of one allowable change per season or something.

Its a good idea, it should also be related to another idea of having fame set for each position. To make the game abit better for everyone. Since one person with high fame can easily change position and get a there skill high anyway.

i could go for an idea like this as it would encourage playa to make the game more tactical - with this specific example for instance, there's no distinction between centre back and full back as the game currently stands

if playa made the game more position specific (eg. right winger comes up against left back etc), it would improve the game immensely for me

Would this idea mean a change to the player ranking system as well though because in order to make a squad stronger you'd want everyone in your team to get a boost for their position as soon as possible. this would mean the rankings would have to display the preferred position of the player and rank them only in the separate league rather than the generic ranking system we currently have which is based on transferable skill points. (Which I personally HATE)

Yes, this center Keeper is looking forward to this change :ag:

Anyway, I can see why people like the idea and I think it won't hurt. :bs:
(it makes it more unlikely that we change the formation to include
people not in the starting eleven.....but that another topic)

But to keep everyone down to earth:
remember that you acuall position has no effect on the game caulation that is using a "midfield playerpool" .
It might add to peoples immersion (as far as this is possible in "the funny football game") ,
but an additional center/outside switch in the profile , that most of us will only use once, dosn't really make it any more tactical

it would mean a change to the fundamental of the game to make such a change in any way worthwhile - there'd be no point having the change, if playa weren't also going to change the match engine - by definition, it would have to be more tactical with such a change

You all know this is a 1D game, so the match engine wouldn't have any need for differnt postions of players. Because its all played in a line!

Thus playing on the left on right is actually pointless, we all play in the centre.

Then why not change that as well! 3D Soccerstars FTW!

A change is possible to include the position bonus without upgrading to a 3D format which I'm sure is far to complex for the developers at PLAYA to even attempt (Snigger).

The simple way around this would be to just let everyone choose their preferred position and then award a bonus for every time they play in that selected position, this would negate the need for a new 3D ss game and include the bonus which was first thought of.

I'm sure a 3D version would be better but it simply isn't practical.

Even a 2D game could have positions in matches. No need for 3D!!
