So, I'm the new NT manager of Belgium. I have been busy scouting the little good players Belgium has around the world. Now that is sorta done, I have been intrigued by one of my current suad players. He has 4.5 BPOS, 5 Exp and 19 tackling at age 31. His team went bot in 2020, I suppose. This seemed weird, but I just now had the time to scout him. Turns out he has 4* Talent.

In the FAQ it says:

FAQ wrote:

Talent has no direct influence on training as such. It does however limit how high a player can reach in his skills. If a player has talent;
1 then his maximum is 11
2 then his maximum is 12
3 then his maximum is 13
4 then his maximum is 14
5 then his maximum is 15
6 then his maximum is 16
7 then his maximum is 17
8 then his maximum is 18
9 then his maximum is 19
10 then his maximum is 20

The only 3 exceptions to this rule are speed, strength and stamina. Speed and strength are limited by a hidden maximum value (different for each player) that represents the maximum value player can reach even if he trains with weights each and every day. Stamina is not limited at all, and with extensive physical (fitness) training every player can reach 20 in stamina.

So 4* talent --> 8 talent --> max 18 for every skill except fitness. His tackling is 19, thus he has broken his skill cap???

What is going on here?

read the next points in the FAQ, it says that cap can be broken for non physical skills

EDIT:

FAQ:
Is it possible for a player to go above his maximum?It is possible, it's just that much harder for the player to achieve that.
If a player is at his maximum then he has 1 in 3 chance to gain a point/level.
If a player is at his maximum + 1 then he has 1 in 5 chance to gain a point/level.
If a player is at his maximum + 2 then he has 1 in 10 chance to gain a point/level.
If a player is at his maximum + 3 then he has 1 in 20 chance to gain a point/level.
It is impossible for a player to go more than 4 above his maximum.

I may be wrong but I don't think the extra points can be gained on the physicals at all

Can someone confirm this? It would help me with my spreadsheets

No. When a physical caps (Speed or Strength), it's a hard cap and can't go up anymore. Supporters can not get a yellow star for speed or strength. It's either green (not capped) or red (hard capped).
