I would appreciate any help in understanding midfield ratings. Obviously, this is one of the most important aspects of HT...but one I've yet to grasp. My midfield rating for my last game was disastrous (very high). This was with my first team, and my 3 IMs totalling 7 stars. I play a 3-5-2 and usually Attack on the Wings. My wingers always pull either 2.5 or 3 stars. My entire team usually pulls 25.5 - 26.5 stars. My question is, why do I not have a higher midfield rating? That is my number one question, but I have others - mostly based on my players listed below: Is Attack on Wings dragging down my rating/would AIM raise it? Is my midfield's stamina dragging it down? Any other comments will help! Here's my team and my 6 IMs (sorted by HT Buddy 'value'): I would also like to note that I primarily rely on using HT Buddy's "value" rating to decide who starts. Is this a bad idea?
