Your players' positions

There are 5 different positions your players can have. Each position needs a different skills to be played well.

  • Goalkeeper - mainly needs goalkeeping
  • Defender - mainly needs tackling
  • Midfielder - mainly needs playmaking
  • Wingplayer - mainly needs passing
  • Striker - mainly needs scoring

Besides the goalkeeping position the positions are quite flexible. A defender for example can play on any of the 3 defensive positions.

Players only play well on their own position, there is a siginificant penalty if a player is placed on an untrained position. Flexible players have a smaller penalty, inflexible player have a higher penalty.

Switching positions

While any player is "born" to play on a specific position, they are not eternally bound to it. You can change a player's position at any time. Simply select the player from your player overview, then hit the "new position" button. It takes 10 days for the player to get used to his new position, until then he is only able to play and train with 50% efficiency.

To reposition a player instantly you can play a "position trading card".
The player will instantly be able to play with full efficiency. He will finish the training day based on his old position. (If you switch a player during the day, while the training is underway, he will begin training based on his new position on the next day. However, the training day completes after the last training slot of the day, so if you reposition him last in the evening, after all training is complete, it will take an additional day, as "tomorrow's training day" has already begun.) 

Careful: The base of a player will change when you reposition him. For the new base the game will look at the skills needed for the new base.
