FIFA 20 Live Editor-Players Table-'modifier'

In the Players Table each player as modifier=1 or modifier=0 value.
Live editor also provides a user lua script to set this value to 0 for all players.

Can anyone tell me what is the purpose of this value?

From FAQ :

- What does modifier do?
- As you probably know, game has formulas to calculate player overall basing on player attributes. modifier field that you can find in-game database table called players is responsible for modifying player overall rating without touching his attributes. Value for it can be from -5 to 5. For example, if player ovr calculated by the game is 80 and modifier value is 1 then player ovr in-game will be 81.

Hello Aranaktu,
Thanks for the quick follow-up.
I am familiar with your FAQ.
But perhaps I didn't clearly formulate my question and I apologies for this.
Which is, what is the point of using the user lua script in live editor to update all player
modifier 0?
Why would anyone do this?
I can understand right away the the reason behind the lua script to untuck shirts or randomize shoes etc.
But I'm scratching my head about the modifier.
Why does FIFA have a 0 or positive or negative modifier?
Is it link to a player's morale for example or perhaps their age?

Probably only EA knows why modifier exists in FIFA. Never seen any in-depth analysis of it, so I can only speculate. Maybe FUT is the answer?

I don't know. Someone requested it, so I made it. Probably for easier evaluating players, because right now player with 75ovr can be better than player with 85ovr. Yes, modifier is most probably also affecting player growth/declining.
