What to expect from the next major expansion (Part 5)
Earlier was telling how the next major expansion will show detailed statistics for each tournament.
Now, we started working on the club’s statistics.
What historical stats did we show earlier?
In the current version of the game, you can trace how the position of each club has been changing on the historical chart. It also shows what the strength of the club at the end of the season was and what trophies the club won.
But we decided that this is not the most convenient way to track the historical statistics of the clubs. We want to know more details. Therefore, for the next expansion, we developed a separate club’s history screen.
First of all, you can see how many trophies the club has won in its entire history. On the chart, you can evaluate the ratio of the trophies won.
We also decided to introduce a historical scale into the game, which will help to quickly assess the success of the club in different seasons. If the club won a trophy, it will be displayed above or below the scale. If the club relegated from the league, this year will be colored in red. If it promoted (or got into the top 3 in the Premier League), then the selected season will turn green. If the club won a gold double (became the champion of the league and won National cup), then we color it with orange.
When you spend several seasons in the game, it is interesting to go to the screen of the clubs you are interested in and study their achievements: do they have the doubles, what is the highest place they reached in their history, how high they got in the cup.
Separately, we decided to show what important trophies the club won or tried to win. If the club participated in the Premier League, the National Cup and/or any continental tournament, then the game will show what the club achieved in these tournaments.
The strength of the team is seen not only by its trophies but also by the value of all club players. And if we can show this information, then why not to show other interesting data related to the players?
For example, now you can see the average age and level of the club’s players, the most expensive acquisition, the most expensive sale, the football player on which the club made the best money.
Over the course of several seasons, each club shows regularities in which opponents it is easier to play with and which ones are more difficult. It used to be unrealistic to track. And the expansion, in a separate field you will be able to see it easily.
The screenshot, for example, shows the rivals of my club Dortmund FC. Surprisingly, the easiest opponent is the league leader Munich FC.
These stats can be tracked for every club. For example, here are the data for Munich FC:
On the tournament statistics screens, we have already shown information on successful and unsuccessful streaks. But when we introduced similar statistics for each club separately, we thought about the following:
Each club has ups and downs. In some seasons, the club will sweep away everyone in its way, and in other seasons, the competition will appear in the league, and it is no longer easy to win. The streaks sometimes represent such ups and downs of the competition, struggle, easy wins to hard losses.
If we can’t “see” the streaks visually, then this information is almost useless. It is difficult to perceive.
Therefore, we invented a special way to visually see when the club had the best streaks.
Here, for example, the statistics of the club Munich FC:
