Maybe you should create a thread on this in the community forum... get more input that way.
As for me, I am not frustrated if it is part of the game. I thought I would be able to get multiple first round picks for a 95 rated running back and a good 1st and 2nd, at least, for a 90+ rated SS. Obviously this is not the case. I can make use of them. I will convert the SS to CB, and I will convert the RB to WR. They will get good use there. I agree 100% with the idea of the difficulties in FOF trading. I also agree 100% with the game being fully computer moderated. And, finally, I too don't like the idea of a player creating multiple accounts and draining one for another. But this could still happen. My biggest problem in FOF was friends trading, and I've seen many lopsided trades. A backup, low rated QB for a top 10 pick comes to mind first. So, I, for one, like the idea of a computer moderated game. My personal opinion is that value system in the trading is way off. But if that is part of the game and everyone is working on the same scale, I won't complain about it :)
I assume a 90 plus rated player is a star at that position. I further assume that some positions have more value than others. For example, a 90 rated RB is much more valuable than a 90 rated C. This should be taken into consideration in the trade process. A superstar (a player over 95 rated), should be worth multiple 1st round picks, but that is not the case from my testing. I'm lucky to find a LATE 1st round and late 4th round pick... maybe.
Another problem is that there is no differentiation of higher picks and lower picks. A 1.32 seems to be about the same value as a 1.10... and there is a huge difference. I think the well known chart about draft pick value could be used here with more success. 1.1 is worth 3000 and 1.32 is worth 590. Using this system, you can work out what a player is worth based on where they are drafted.
Finally, I think the player pools in the draft are not balanced. But this could be my perception. I don't really know what a ratings are average. Is a 50 rated player average, or weak? Considering the draft ratings, 50 is weak. Late round players are not generally expected to make a team. If you can get a 45 rated player in the 7th round, that would mean that the average starter is probably rated around 70, and the average backup should be 55. 45 will barely have a chance to play on an average team. So, first I need to understand the ratings better and where the scale is. Then I think I could talk more knowledgably on this particular issue.
Again, I think it would be a great idea to create a thread in the community forum about this. As it stands, I am fine with things as they are... I just don't have a desire to make many trades, which really reduces one part of the game.
