The Pay Rises & Their Effect on Morale post back on November 11 has generated a lot of discussion and I thought it time I revisited the issue. It seems many of you are less then happy with my original suggestion. Surprisingly the consensus is that morale needs to mean much more in the game and I am happy to take things forward on that basis.
At the moment, morale has a minimal effect on game play. This is mainly because the vast majority of managers see 18 as a low morale and therefore in a game the effects of morale become negligible. Morale is a range from 1 to 20, not 16 or 17 to 20 and any changes will need to get things back on an even keel in order to be effective.
Rather than suggest some changes, I would like to take the next couple of weeks to throw around some options here and on the Forum to see what people would like to see. Personally I would love to see morale mean much more and also for the higher morale levels to be something teams aspire to rather than a minimum level.
Things that I think could have a positive effect on morale are:
- Winning games.
- Drawing with teams above you in the league.
- Not losing away games.
- Buying good players.
- Players performing well.
While negatives could possibly be:
- Losing games.
- Not winning at home.
- Numerous team or squad changes.
- Selling good players.
- Players performing badly.
The lists are a quick set of thoughts and their relative impacts need to be expanded, but I would be interested on your thoughts.
