Player Archetypes Increases Confusing.

I don't get it.. So I have a player Denzel Ward.. He has a MAN TO MAN rating of 90. He has a ZONE rating of 89 and a SLOT rating of 88.. His scheme is MAN TO MAN.. So I decide to upgrade his ZONE rating to make it equal to his MAN TO MAN.. making them both 90. I choose his ZONE and upgrade.. But instead of his ZONE rating increasing to 90. His MAN TO MAN increases to 91. So what is the point of increasing his ZONE rating. ??? Same thing with another player. Same ratings but his scheme is ZONE.. So i want to bring up his ZONE rating to match the MAM TO MAN thus making his Scheme match my Scheme.. Once again his MAN TO MAN increases and his ZONE remains the same..

Yet on other players, If I increase a particular Archetype.. That rating increases.. What am I missing. I assume that choosing a particular Archetype is supposed to increase that Archetype.. It just don't make sense to me.

And finally, At the end of the season, I see all these ratings going up by many points, but at the start of the new season, 95 percent of my players OVERALL have not increased. They remain the same. But I see a few that dropped a point or two.. So how does a player progress over the years. Practice squad players never increase.. So whats the point of even having them.. ??

Some ratings are used across multiple archetypes so when it goes up in one it is also applied in another causing both to raise.

Re: Player Archetypes Increases Confusing.

If when you upgraded his zone archetype it upgraded attributes that also go towards his man to man overall then it's possible that that gets boosted as well. Each archetype has a set of attributes that go in to determining the overall for that archetype. Some archetypes share attributes with others, so it's possible that upgrading one will also bump their overall up in another archetype.

Re: Player Archetypes Increases Confusing.

My thinking was a bit too linear during my first couple of season of developing players. When one of my players had an OVR that was like 3 points better in his Scheme fit archetype, I had to force myself to put some skill point in the other archetype categories to shore up his weaknesses and not be concerned that the OVR might not necessarily go up. Getting that +4 in man coverage was exponentially more important than seeing the Zone OVR going up 2 points when the zone coverage skill was already over 90.

Do this today: Instead of $%*#[email protected]& on a game you're not going to play or movie you're not going to watch, say something good about a piece of media you're excited about.

Do the same thing tomorrow. And the next. Now do it forever.
