Introducing Player Injuries

In our ongoing pursuit of authenticity and strategic depth in MetaSoccer, we are excited to share a pivotal development – the introduction of player injuries. This feature aims to bring a new layer of realism and strategic complexity to the gameplay experience.

The Player-Injury Connection

Central to this innovation is the intricate link between injuries and individual players. When a player sustains an injury, they will temporarily be sidelined, rendering them unable to participate in both matches and training sessions. This dynamic element adds a compelling narrative to each player's journey, mirroring the unpredictable nature of real-world football.

Occurrence Moments

Injuries aren't arbitrary; they unfold at critical junctures in a player's journey. During a match, every 90 / 8 minutes of play, a die is cast to select a single player from the 22 on the field (it's possible that none get selected). That chosen player might sustain an injury, with a 5.4% probability distributed across the 90 minutes.

If a player gets injured during the match, their stats plummet to 0.

Furthermore, as the final whistle blows, another die is rolled. In this post-match scenario, several players could face the risk of injury, each with a 5% chance of getting injured. These moments of vulnerability and recovery contribute to the rich narrative woven within the game, ensuring that every match tells a unique story of triumphs and challenges. Welcome to the unpredictable world of MetaSoccer, where each decision and roll of the dice adds a layer of excitement and strategy to the beautiful game.

Diverse Types of Injuries

The MetaSoccer experience now encompasses a spectrum of injuries, each with its own unique probability of occurrence and recovery time. Delve into the intricacies of these injuries, each presenting a distinctive challenge for managers to navigate.

These changes will commence on Saturday, December 23, at 14:00 UTC

Key Points to Note

  • Injury Linkage: Injured players cannot play matches or train, but they will still recover condition.
  • Timing of Injuries: Injuries can occur during a match and at the end of a match.
  • Limitation: Only one player can get injured at a given moment.

Stay tuned for further updates, as we continue to refine and enhance the MetaSoccer gaming experience, setting the stage for a new era of soccer simulation.
