-10 Potential Players

What is potential ability?

Potential Ability is the maximum Current Ability that a particular player can reach at his peak. The maximum is 200, which obviously corresponds to very high stats (note that there is no way to directly relate somebody's stats to his CA, it's just a rough indicator if you want).


Now, what do those negative numbers mean?

At the start of each game, a PA value is 'randomly' generated for each player with a negative PA. In our case, -10 players get a random PA of between 170 and 200 and -9 players get a random PA of between 150 and 180.


What does that practically mean in your game?

Let's take Younousse Sankhare for example. Let's suppose his PA at the start of a given saved file is 171 (given the fact he's a -9). If he gets enough match practice and gets trained from good coaches in good facilities, he's going to reach a Current Ability of 171 in his peak.
