Partial Skill Bar introduced

Over six Seasons have passed since the new Deterioration system was announced and now, we are one week into the return of deterioration. Some Managers had prepared their teams, and some are wondering how to adapt to the return of this management challenge.




Since the return of deterioration, your Head of Training has been working feverishly with your Club Secretary to provide even more information on the state of your Players. From today they are pleased to share their new Player Card, which contains information on partial Skill Balls and Pucks.



What is a Partial Ball or Puck?


Players have always benefited in Matches from each part of their skill, even though previously, only full Balls or Pucks have been displayed.

Players gain Balls and Pucks through Training, and since Training 2.0 they are gaining them at a much faster rate. The forums are full of mentions, some jealous and some with pride of 'monster' Players that have been trained, bought, sold and even rescued.

When Players train and improve in the skill they are training, each partial skill is aggregated and as they reach or pass a whole Ball or Puck your Head of Training and Club Secretary note that improvement and an additional Ball or Puck is displayed. Starting today you are able to view some additional information on Partial Skill Balls and Pucks.

A Partial Skill Ball or Puck is a visual representation of a fraction of a skill and is rounded down to the nearest quarter.


Every time a Player improves in a Skill, he will use the improvement in future matches, sadly the same goes when a Player deteriorates in a Skill.

Whilst not showing every level of detail, the partial skill display will help differentiate between the different levels within a whole Ball or Puck.


Where are the Partial Skill Bar displayed?



You can see the Partial Skill Bars under Squad → Player Profiles and on each Player’s 'Player Card'. The National Coaches are also able to see Partial Skill Bars when they are searching for Players. You are only able to see your own Partial Skill Bars. By hovering the Partial Skill Bars you will see a larger view of the bar. Your Club Secretary is also considering more areas to display the Partial Skill Bars which may be included in the future.



Has anything changed in the SIM, the Training or the deterioration?



Whilst we are continually working, designing, testing and planning improvements in the SIM, to avoid inaccurate speculation after the release of the Partial Skill Bars, it is helpful to confirm that no changes have been made to the live SIM, or Training in either sport.

What is the World League?



This is a global League that brings the whole ManagerZone world together into one single contest. You will be able to compete in a Senior League exclusively against the best Clubs in the world.

Teams that play in the Senior World League will earn team money and experience. Whilst the team money earnt will be much less than for the Senior League, it will help active Managers to support the cost of training and developing their team.


World League match days



The World League is very different from the Senior and Youth Leagues. There are three World League Seasons per regular Season and matches are played every day. The first World League Match is on Monday, so make sure you have optimized your tactics by then.

You can get a feel for how strong your League rivals are by clicking the Scout Match icon next to the names in the League table.

Kick-off times will vary from Season to Season, to spread out the matches across the different time zones.

How long is a World League Season?



A World League Season will last around 30 days, which includes the match days, promotions/relegation and signup period. The World League Seasons will NOT cross the regular Season boundary.

Other information

1 World League Pass per World League season.
CM: 1 Pass costs 8PT
