Oldest player

Have any players ever reached 40?

I think Lolita Gallagher is the oldest player in the game right now (38.8) but she retires in the next day or two. The oldest player I can find who isn't retiring is Bernice Law (38.6), which means a minimum age of 39.6 when she retires. There must have been a 40+ year old at some point, but I never thought to look until now. I assume that the players can stay in the game infinitely, with enough luck. Is there a hardcoded maximum age players can reach before they have a 100% chance of retiring?

I'd assume so, otherwise players wouldn't retire all around the same age.
Ew why was my signature so cheesy?

Really, song lyrics? Yeesh, I haven't left all of my cringiness behind. I promise, it's mostly gone now.

I should have at least quoted a less dramatic song.

more than an actual maximum age I assume that there must be simply an average, the farther a player gets away of that average the more likely that they will retire, so yeah I believe that as you say with enough luck we could see a player reaching above 40. It would be interesting to know the actual average age at which players retire, they say it's 35 but i believe that it is a simple estimation, but who knows, realizing that research would be a little time consuming.

I'll do the research.

I don't know if there are any legitimate players that have reached 40. I do remember once there was a glitch on the tradelist that was spawning a number of 40+ year old players. I don't think that counts, but if it happened now I would definitely waste the money on it for no reason other than because I could :lol:

39.8 is the oldest I have seen before at retirement around 5 months ago. I can't remember who it was though. I'll see if I can jog my memory.

John Patel (currently aged 40.1) retires this season from the Crawley Kornnish. I think he'll be 40.2 or 40.3 by that time.

A new record (as far as I know)!

Umm... Congrats on being the oldest I guess?
