This is the place not for debates about pros and cons of the game but of the play of the career mode. Topics of player scouting, player EXP development, transfers, team chemistry, transfers and other workings of the career mode. Best way I have found to make money is to keep salaries low. Each year there seems to be a little trick that allows you to make lots of money. Last year it was the ability to buy and sell people in the same transfer period, even to the team you bought the player from. This year it is the ability to sign players for much lower salaries then their market price, I bought a guy who was 75,000 salary and worked it down to 3500, and have been able to do so without fail yet. Here is how you do it. You get a lot more bids during transfer seasons this year. You are purposefully going to low ball transfers and salaries down to the min to get them rejected. Once they are rejected go to "negotiation history" under the "transfer central" menu. renegotiate and give them a fair transfer (20% above market value and drop the salary down even further to the min. amount again. Just continue to drop the salary and raise the transfer until they accept. I have a 26 man roster 20 of them are part of the best 25 in the game including the top 6. The salary is 250,000 a game. As your coaching prestige gets higher you get better sponsorship offers. I have worked up to a 10 and got a 1.4 mill a game sponsorship earning 1.1 each game. From there you just spend money and keep your overall salaries down. You will build up enough money to eventually buy anyone you want.
