I have a question related to the number of 5 star (Rec column in scout section) players reported by scouts. On what is this number based? Is this based on the quality of your squad or the number of players that you have in your squad? I am asking you this because i take interest in only the 5 star rated players reported by my scouts. I just started a new season and i dont like one thing. Last season my next opposition scout reported only a few (1,2,3,4) players of 5 star quality from other teams, or none in case of teams of lower quality. And i liked this. Now in the summer i made some transfers, i bought some players and i sold some players. And also i have a lower total number of players than the last season. And now the reports of my scout for next opposition teams contain more players with 5 star Rec. than last season.
Is this because maybe my overall squad quality is lower than last season because of my transfers (altough i dont think a i have a lower quality team now)?
Or is this happening because my total number of players is lower than last season? Last season i had 40+ now i have 30+
