    Fortunately I didn't spend as much, but the same happened to me with Patriots OL Cannon who I bought for 20mil+.

    Turns out all Patriots and Rams players had x2 stats or so for being in superbowl but as I've only been playing under a week, I had no idea.

    FTB should communicate better with players, especially so new players can quickly discover information like this out so they don't use all their cash and end up with terrible players they can't even sell back.

    Really enjoying the game, but think there's a lot of improvements to be made.

    Hi @Miles E. Crawford,

    Edelman didn't play last season, that's why his previous season (not this one that just finished, but the one before that) is showing as 0 points. The reason his stats dropped so much is because, while he was in the Super Bowl, he had double points. Now that the values have updated to their season average value, they no longer have their x2 value.

    We did send a message in the game to let all of you know, and it should have shown on the Home screen as a Support notice. If you did not see it, we will look into this and look into ways to improve that so that it doesn't happen again.

    For any other questions like this, please kindly send them in our "General Questions" or "Bugs & Technical Issues" threads so we can keep the forum as clean and organized as possible.

    Thanks!

    Yes, I got a support message telling me that Edelman's stats were reduced by 67% or so...

    Maybe... Just maybe... you should not have included a x2 player on the Auction / Buy list ???? Especially for the 2nd day players of your game who basically just totally hosed themselves.  At the VERY least, putting them on the auction/buy list with their REAL stats instead of the x2 stats would have made more sense. As is stands, it looks like I got a Patriots OL from that list as well thinking I got a great player only to have his stats reduced nearly in half!

    I bought the starter kit... which was basically wasted because I did not understand.

    Honestly, I think the rating systems are pretty clear, and there are lots of notices and pop-ups explaining important information such as the 2x bonus during the playoffs.

    Everyone makes mistakes when they’re new to a game, and I think this is an example of that rather than example of poor game design.

    The idea that 2x players shouldn’t appear in the auctions is ridiculous. The 2x period is when they’re most valuable, and when people want them the most, and when they can improve their team the most.

    I didn’t buy Edelman, because I could see that people were overpaying given the fact he missed the previous season and would soon no longer have the 2x bonus.

    You made a mistake because everyone makes mistakes when they’re inexperienced, and that applies to every part of life, not just video games. Miles’ message is just entitled.

    Hi @Miles E. Crawford -- We understand what you're saying and you have every right to be upset about the player value changing. We feel that we were clear with the messages and the explanations, however, we can always be wrong. We know that we can always improve in different ways, so if you have any suggestions for us, or if we see that we weren't clear with something, we can assure you that we'll look into it and ensure that things are more clear in the future.

    If you signed Edelman and want to remove him, we can make an exception and refund the cash/coins to your account. Please let us know.

    Thanks!

    Yes please refund my money for Mr. Edelman. 

    I think had I started playing before the superbowl I should have understood that his stats were 2x. There wasn't anything I saw explaining that beforehand.

    Like I said, I think (I'm not at my iPad now) I got a patriots lineman that I paid way too much for as well due to the 2x stats but I'll be happy to eat that one as a learning experience as I didn't pay 40 million thinking I was getting a superstar! :)

    I think that Rams receiver on the 'negotiate' would have had the same issue. Wasn't abundantly clear to me that his stats would have been 2x as well.

    From my perspective, the support note after the fact was also clear about the reason his stats were lowered but that didn't change the fact that on days 1 & 2 I had no way to understand the 2x ratings early on. Maybe that could be made more clear to newer players on the auction page? i.e. Display Player value as: 40.25 (temporarily 2x so he is 80.50 until 2/10/19 ?)

    Thank you for your understanding and the refund.
