i disagree on the editor part, for me the main flaw of the editor way of updating NT´s right now is the need to create shadew players, that is players who are not created in PSD yet, but are part of their NT´s, to get them inside this editor NT, they have to be created even though they are without stats basically, which means people don´t realy know what players are missing in PSD only after they click on the player and find out that his stats are in fact missing, and this is my main issue with the editor way of updating NT´s... the second issue is that you have to write the additional recently call - up players the old way anyway... so what we are left with is an imperfect NT´s with lot´s of shadow players that the users don´t know on first view they are actually missing stats.. for that i have created a missing NT players thread so people can see these players are missing... other than that i agree, that the Editor way of updating NT´s is much easyer for any mod to update than the old style... but if this function of adding just names of players would be added to editor NT´s update, without having to create a shadow player, which will perhaps motivate people to create these missing players, it would be more clear for anyone. IMO creating shadow players in retired sections without stats for the NT updates sake only is not the solution.. it only generates empty stats, which i think pelimetal is deleting once these players are out of official NT´s....but still, in less covered NT´s like Bolivia or so... it only creates an ilusion of full NT, while there are 11+ players missing in PSD for example...the old way of doing things, we could see what players are missing by simply not having the link to their individual PSD threads.
the second issue is the easy ability of old way of editing NT´s to have the COMPETITION´s older selections saved, which is impossible with editor way of doing NT´s, for example the Copa america 2015 squads are lost once they are updated to Copa America 2016 becasue the ID of the NT stayes the same.... while with Old way, we could simply write it to a single post and save it for future, at least the lineup...if not the whole stats for let´s say classic section... the new way, all the NT´s will be updated, but the old selections for the previous competitions will be erased with each update..
i hope this explains why i prefer the old way and why i have in fact created my own thread for the old way of editing NT´s in a different section of the forum. Mainly to see what players are still missing and also to keep the older competitions selections saved for future.
