I'm not sure if you've read my first post above but here it is again.

The intention is nice, but it has a massive flaw.

As an example, a player who is set to a Striker position could register as a Defender. They will still play with their Striker skills but only show up in the Defender rankings. No one will be able to tell how much skill the Striker has so they can't choose the best tactics to compensate.

Thanks MM, i did read your post, but what i am suggesting is that you show up in the rankings under your chosen position, if you change position, you switch to that ranking table, simples!

Tbh, i'm not exactly sure that i understand what you mean about the flaw you described, i'm not being difficult, honest!

In the first scenario players lose the skill bonus from their skill drinks, so they actually hurt themselves more doing that.

In the second scenario you can't see the opposing teams tactics anyway, players will have to all swap their chosen position before the game to make this tactic work. You miss the deadline you leave yourself with the wrong skills drink bonus' and therefore your team is weaker, or even worse you are playing out of position for your gear and you suck anyway.

If you want proof, make note of your skill and swap your set position from striker to defender (or vice versa). Now refresh your page and look in the rankings under your original position. Your skill will have dropped because your goalshot and sprinting (or intercept and steal ball) attributes are no longer being effected by your skills drink.

Edit: Unconfirmed, you need to refresh your web browser in between.

But tbh, having peoples names coloured respectively for their preferred position in the rankings would help alot, and even further having a button to exclude players with different preferred position would help solve alot of the problem.

You can't see your ranks for alternative positions without actually swtiching your preferred position, and the second you swap position in your profile you will start recieving the bonus from your skills drink, so that proves nothing.

Thank you for your detailed explanation. What i was originally suggesting is to keep it simple, why complicate things?

If your preferred position is striker then you will be in the striker stats, if your captain puts you in defence, then you play with the sprinting and goal shot ability, bad times! If you choose to change to midfield... well, i'm not gonna go over it again, i'm sure you get the idea.

I have withdrawn my earlier comments. As the old proverb says, "You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink."
