Maybe this thread will only have one post, but currently my 12 year old daughter is passionately playing a totally absurd BAL carreer. What happens to her is so absurd that it reminds me of Fawlty Towers or Spinal Tap: a grotesque parody of what a decent mode should be. If you have similar experiences, please post them here and maybe somebody can help my daughter. This is also some sort of tribute to her perserverance/stubborness for not giving up on her game (i've adviced her to start a carreer in FIFA 13, but she will not give up). She created a player: a Belgian AMF. She knew she would start the game with one of the fake teams in the PES League, but she didn't mind. Her aim was to be recruted by one of her two favourite teams Anderlecht or Chelsea. Tghe beginning of her carreer is pretty realistic. She was on the bench and came in as a sub. But after a while it became clear that her player was becomming something of a super sub: he often scored decisive goals and became time after time man of the match. After a while one would think that this managerof her would start thinking to let her start a game or two. He never did. At the mid-season break she was top scorer and she started to look out for another team. After a search she found out that Cagliari and Fiorentina were both clubs that would have suited her, but both clubs snubbed her. On came the second part of the season. Her team ended second in the PES League and won the PES Cup. As an eternal substitue she scored 35 goals in the league, was named man of the match 13 times, and in the Cup she was top scorer, top assister and player of the tournament. She was also in the team of the season (having only one other team mate who made it in the team of the season). Now there is a feature in BAL where you can see where you are on the choice ranking of the manager for a particular place in the team. For AMF, she neve rwas mentioned among the top 3 or top 5 (don't remember if it's a top 3 or top 5). She gets mentioned as the number one GK however... She hoped that things would get better in her second season. Once again she couldn't find a transfer to another team so she decided to stick it out. Surely her manager would pick her after her first good season (and isn't good an understatement?). Yesterday she finished her second season and here this becomes a complete joke. She played all the friendlies throughout the season and was each and every time she played man of the match. Yet she didn't play a second in a single competitive match. The most absurd thing is that despite that, she has become a regular of the national team in her second season. She played in every single match the national team played in her second season. She played instead of ordinary players like Hazard, Fellaini and Dembélé... At the beginning of her second season, she (or her player) got two offers from other fake teams. When she went looking at the clubs offer, this stated that she had 53% chance to start games, but that she was "ineligible"...she asked what that means and i told her that i think it means that she can't play for some mysterious reason... She said that she would take the gamble and move clubs... We'll see what happens. Is she doing something wrong, or is this mode totally broken? Knowing Konami, i think i know what it is... What is the point of having a carreer mode when you never can play a second for an entire season?
