Age Stat?

Postby durban » Thu Nov 19, 2009 11:56 am

I only just noticed the players in KO2 have an Age stat.

In PM that was important as you knew the older a player got the more his speed etc diminished.

however in KO2 the Age is static.

My question is, therefore, does AGE have any influence on a player during the game (in much the same way as morale does perhaps?)


I was thinking the only legitimate influence it could potentially have would be that when you are behind in a game the AGE of a player gives him more experience and thus the impact of moral could be diminished...


So for example

M.Durban Age 21
S.Camber Age 35


If our team goes 1-0 down and both our Morale drops then S.Cambers morale drops slower due to his experience (he knows its not the end of the world) and thus the impact of a goal is less on S.Camber than M.Durban.


Steve can you confirm if the Age has any impact, or is it simply a weight stat that isn't used?

I have found no use of the age stat.. the same goes for weight, height and flair etc. I'm sure I've posted about this before somewhere! ;)

Just bit left over from Player Manager.. still there to remain compatible with team saves etc.

Come on Camber try harder, the Flair stat HAS to be used somewhere :)

If I was writing a game then Flair would either mean how well a player controls the ball when running, or how likely the player is to run instead of passing when computer controlled! :)

Did you ever find a use for Flair?
Was it just something that was going to be used but never got used in the end?

I'm sure it's used in Player Manager for something, it's just left redundant in KO2. Maybe there were plans, who knows?

Shame Dino isn't around to ask still, never mind. Age and Flair were always my fave stats :)

Where those stats not used in any of the KO2 versions? The tackles seem different or is that just the sound effect that differs?

Wasn`t the FLAIR stat introduced in one of the data disks?

Final Whistle. FLAIR attribute added. Someone with a high level of FLAIR will attempt a solo effort on goal.

I like to think of it as like their dress sense... higher flair would result in stuart pearce style porno shorts and chris waddle mullet... takes balls to carry that off

maybe Andy has high flair too
