What are Roster Points?
Roster Points (RP) are the sum of hard stats on an athlete's card. Roster Points introduce interesting mechanics to team building and management, so that there can't be a single 'best team'. A Team will be limited to a maximum of 360 RP (review the Roster Points Cap Section below). If a team has the best attack strategy, their roster points will be constrained, resulting in either a less robust defense or midfield, and vice versa.
This promotes diversity in team creation and enables users to choose strategies based on their team's strengths or weaknesses. With the introduction of skills in the game, players will have the opportunity to enhance their strengths or compensate for their weaknesses, fostering increased engagement in gameplay.
|57 Roster Points||16 Roster Points||9 Roster Points|
Looking at the examples above, Luiz Araujo has a sum of his stats (both defensive and offensive stats) that equals 57. This means Luiz has 57 Roster Points. Similarly, Brad Guzan has 16 Roster Points and Luke Haakenson has 9 Roster Points.
**Note: Roster Points remains the same as cards are leveled up, as hard stats (base stats) of the cards stay the same. Details are subject to change as the game evolves, balance changes are made, and new features are introduced.
Roster Point Caps on Teams
All teams (both new and existing teams) will have a cap of 360 Roster Points (RP) in total. The cap will only apply to players in the starting line up and substitute positions. Reserves are not included in the roster point cap. While creating a team, users will need to make sure that their team's RPs are under the cap of 360. Each team's RPs are shown at top of the team page (seen below):
For new teams, users will not be able to create a team above the RP cap. For existing teams with RPs above the cap, they will not be able to play casual mode unless changes are made to the team to come in at or under the RP cap. Please note that teams will still be able to play practice matches regardless of if they satisfy the RP criteria or not.
