 Hidden Special Abilities 
 Should your players special abilities be hidden from your opposition and only known by you? Knowing this information can help you plan your lineup against a team. Would trading be affected? The Manager has always been a game of open information. Does a change like this alter that philosophy?

I suspect it's to force managers to plan ahead and manage their squad. If you can just downgrade at any time it means you can effectiveley ignore the 5 cap rule. If any of your MP players become an inconvenience to an auction purchase or trade you're planning you can just downgrade. No.......................

James White - May 13th 2018 15:33

Why can't they be downgraded in The Manager? Seems strange when it essentially makes your players value less.

Just want to understand the thinking behind the rule.

It creates an abundance statistics and information to help a manager decide what his teams best formation may be, or best team tactic to use. In The Manager the 'behind the scenes' calculations are upfront for you to study along side the statistics to help you make your next move.
