Most of us are aware that after a short space of time money in a Game World becomes practically meaningless.
So I ask myself, why is this? Obviously one of the most important aspects of the game is the ability to scout players who are risers and to make money through this skill. But to what end? What is the point of making 20, 30, 40 million a season in this way if the money you have has no value? Hyperinflation. It's a given that every club is profitable with even a minimum amount of financial control. And this, my friends, is not realistic. And realism is what we're after here, isn't it? Isn't it?
Indeed the only real currency is players. Player trading, player swaps, players, players, players. And anyone who's been in on a Gold Championship when the doors open can not but be reminded of the opening scenes from Gladiator... 'On my signal, unleash hell' indeed.
So if this is a recognised 'problem', what can we do to inject some realism?
I'm just throwing this out there, just throwing it out.... Should players wages - and I mean top players; top, top players; top top top players, even... should their wages be increased?
Lionel Messi is the top rated player in the game yet his wages are a mere 110k...
So, I say to you, as a starter for ten... let's increase the wages, baby.
