How do you decide player numbers?

1
Let’s say you have Ronaldinho and Pele on the same team. Who’s the #10? You have Crespo and R9, who gets to wear #9? Who is your 17? Boateng or Petit?

    Icon takes priority, then other player takes his national team number or the closest to his club number.

    using any other number other than 9 on ronaldo is a criminal offence.

    first come first served for me. adp was bought first, so he gets 10. ronaldinho settles for 80, which he wore for milan.

    Kit numbers don’t change for me, unless I change a player in the squad.

    I do. I’m sure some people do as well. I grew up with certain numbers being reserved for top tier players

    Been having to do that sometimes unless they use he same number. One time I had Messi and Maradona, so Maradona was 10 and Messi 19 for his original Barca number.

    Ah ok, see id give R10 the shirt. Regardless of tenure because he’s a bigger legend in my opinion, but if I had Pele, then he would be 10 and Ronaldinho 11.

    I have my whole team in tradional numbers. Back four of numbers 3, 5, 6, 2 etc. And it totally bugs me the game randomly gives your team new numbers.

    I just gave up setting them up, they are changed every few games by some mysterious force.

    That’s interesting, so you assign numbers based on position within your formation?

    Yeah, this kit number issue is becoming an issue ... scored a decent goal with Henry - saveable quality last night - just to see him wearing the number 1 jersey. FFS!

    Initially I'd say it's random, but given it's coding, there is some event that causes a reshuffle of numbers. Have no idea exactly what that is - could be applying a squad fitness on the 5th time that causes this. Who knows?

    Sad that it's not on the high priority issues list for EA.

    Ronaldinho is always #10

    Rest is based on what they have at their current club, if there's lots with the same number like, 5, then I just use NT number or pick some double digits that are available.

    Ronaldo gets 9 ADP gets 10

    The poor cousins, Crespo & Rui have to fight over 7 & 11

    My experience

    If you change shirt numbers & get them in the next game they will stay for eternity

    Unless you change anything in your squad this includes

    Swapping players from your club to any position
    Swapping positions of any player in your squad

    Changing any squad number will also screw it up for the next match but once u change it again it will be fine

    I don’t have Maradona but if I he I would have the number 10. But from my players is the number that they used in their prime. Rui Costa 10, Ronaldinho 7 ( When in the national team), Roberto Carlos 6.
    After that is GK 1, defenders between 2-4, midfielders 8 and 5, my best attacker is 9 followed by 11 or 20 for subs.
