Ratings range from A (for high-quality business deals) to F (for deals that don’t make financial sense). The rating is determined by dividing the transfer fee by the selling club’s asking price.

Each player has his/her own style of play, and your actions on the field will earn you personality points. The Player Personality will mold the virtual personality of the player while also gaining attribute bonuses. This was done to provide a ‘deeper personal connection’ with the gamer, allowing him to shape his player accordingly. There are three types of personalities, each with its own set of advantages.


They are generally aggressive and act on instinct. They are ambitious and will go after their goals without hesitation. They live a more opulent lifestyle while remaining committed to being a professional athlete.


They are skilled and intelligent and can change the course of a match in the blink of an eye. They are intensely focused and capable of making an impact on the pitch while also attaining their objectives.


This player is the squad’s nucleus and a full team player. They will not be looking for individual prizes as much as they will be looking to fill the team’s trophy case. They are always willing to assist newcomers and children.

While in an attacking position, passing to a teammate for an assist might get you Heartbeat points, whilst shooting and scoring earn you Maverick and Virtuoso points. For example, if you completed a successful pass (+5 Heartbeat Points) and scored a goal (+20 combined Maverick/Virtuoso Points), you may receive a total of 25 Personality Points in a match.

Many levels can be unlocked, and the higher the level, the greater the flow of attribute bonuses. It is the final step of evolution when you achieve the absolute level. It will provide you with even more advantages to make a bigger impact on the pitch.
