Regens are shit

Sup peeps. Ive just finished my 9th season with Lecce and just had my 500th game incharge. Its july 2016. Usually this is the point where i get bored with the team and i'll begin a new game. However this time round i want to keep going.

The problem is most of the good "real" players are in there 30's and the regens are fucken terrible. Gone are the 5 star players, 4 star is as good as it gets. Every regen has a severe weakness, or some stats are just unrealistic (lol 3 pace? 4 stam? gtfo).

Now i thought the idea behind regens was when a "real" player retired he would come back as a 15-16 year old with a different name/nationality etc. Then you could develop them up to the point where they'd be very similar to their predecessor. This however isnt the case at all.

Has anyone else noticed this and/or explain it?

Im using 8.0.1 patch, with a large database and about 20ish country's selected to "use all players from this country"
well i know the regens are shit. thats why i never play the game for so long that i have to start using regens :P.

But to be honest when you are at that point of the game you really need to "cheat".

Use Genie scout utility to find the better regens etc. Usually the best thing would be to when every season ends there are new regens created then you search for young players with good potential.
but now it might be a bit late for that.

someone else should have better solution. My solution to this is to never play the game for so long =P

in the early years of championship manager you could put on your shortlist players close to retirement(bierhoff, kahn, klinsman,de boer brothers and so on) and after they would retire you would get a regen player on your shortlist with the same qualitys as the retired player you had before. it was concedered a bug and was fixed by the game developers starting from CM 02-03(i think)...so that is not exactly a good idea.just like red said....use genie scout because in 2016 the game is not realistic anymore and you can use genie without saying that u cheat:yes
Yea i do use scout. Its just annoying that the same quality isnt there. I honestly dont know why they would do this properly.
use fmm to chage PA?
