Youth intake. It happens every single year. A fresh breed of young players are injected to various youth academies throughout the world. If you can keep tabs on these hot prospects soon enough, you could be in for a treat.
The problem is that the best of those players will end up in big clubs because you have a disadvantage compared to AI managers; they know everything about the game’s database and you don’t.
How to find the best regens as soon as they are generated? This article will help you pinpoint the dates for every country and give you an edge that will enable you to steal them before they go to the big clubs.
Knowing the dates that regens from certain countries are generated, takes away the AI advantage and let you play on level terms. You will know exactly when to send your scouts to scan a certain nation to discover the next generation of raw gems that will take the football world by storm.
|Remember that regen / newgen players are generated by the game to enable you to keep playing indefinitely as real footballers retire. It’s not uncommon to find regens with amazing abilities that is almost unreal (pun intended).|
