    I've got a big competition coming up in the next few days, so I wanted to make sure I understand Form correctly. I joined about 8 Private Cups and 5 or so Friendly Leagues, I used to use my first team for all games, but last week three of my players needed to rest, so I learned to care for Form. So I set up a youth squad/reserves and gave up most matches, except for 1 League match and 2 Cups that I have done well in and want to win. Then I heard from some guildmates that the only matches that affect Form are Leagues and Friendlies... I find that hard to believe, I can play 30 matches a day, 3-4 Friendlies and 1 League match per week and still keep high Form? He says the best combo for increasing form is 5 Friendlies + 1 League, if form is already high then 3-4 Friendlies is a safe number. Today the Form of my team updated and one of the tired players are now satisfied, most of them are 8-9 Form. I want to keep this excellent Form for at least two weeks, so I can play through the important competition.

    Thanks in advance :rockman:

    you didnt really aska question.. but yes form only concerns friendlies and leagues, and 5 first team friendlies a week is good.

    if u play 10 then use ur youth in the other 5...

    Does anyone have an answer to why sometimes your Form will suddenly drop to 0 sometimes? Without warning, or so I hear, some people in my league have been unfortunate to have this happen. Any way I can avoid it? My 8 form players are now 9 form, I am desperate to keep this up for just two weeks :p

    they dont play friendlies.. so then the players 'need to play' or they over play there team and they 'need to rest',, just keep an even balance and ur form will remain high.

    What, what, what?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So, You want to say that only thing that affects form is Friendlies and League?!!!!!!!!!!! Does this mean, that I can play 50 matches in cups a day, and my players won't get tired?!!!!! It's impossible! Are You sure?!!! I always thought that cups do affect form, and had to change tactics so many times... Man, I thought that nothing can surprise me now, but if this is true... Damn, that's good :D

    Yes, he's right. 5 per week. only friendlies and league count, and being on the bench counts the same as in the team.

    League Game - 1 a week and first team should always play
    Friendlies - If player says I need to play, play them in as many as possible
    _______ - If player says satisfied then can play 4-6 safely
    _______ - If player says need to rest should just play the league game (assuming is in first team)

    Remember subs count as having played

    If u have 16 first team and then 16 reserve/youth players then u can play 5 friendlies for each group of 16 and the first team also play the league game


    FriendlyLeague games and cups of any kind don't affect form so first team should always play
