Gave Inter Melon his first league loss with a goal at 29:59 to win 25-24. Tujague softened him up yesterday, clearly.

canucks, I am so going to steal that ^^. Looking very good.

Pulled what appears to be a very average player in soccer last night. But he has 518OR!?!?

Hah. That's awesome. I was going to brag about how I got the winning goal at 29:50 in my game, but that's not nearly as impressive, so I'll shut up

I'm going for it! I made a switch in my lineup that I think will help a lot. Instead of having offensive and defensive lineups, I have my superstars on one formation, and my backups on the 2nd formation that play when I'm winning. My superstars went beastmode today against Cap, scoring 27 goals in 27 minutes of gameplay...

I like it.

Also, thank you Kytihu for bringing him down. He was getting too comfortable up there in first place...

EDIT: Hold up, I think I messed up my lineup. I think they were playing offense only, which would explain a lot.

Wow! OR normally goes with Qs. Odd. Regardless, that high of OR, regardless of Qs, he'll be a stud given it is week 1 and will fetch you good bucks.

There is a chance he could lose 4 in a row. After the Babies, he has Salt Lake.

If we send a PM to play higher intensity is that against the rules

He ended up slightly better than I thought Unscouted 74 to 79AQ. And he only has two Qs under 83, goalie at 57 and pass at 58. Wow. Maybe. What the hell would you do with this guy?
Goa 42 57

It is illegal in a PM.

But it's perfectly fine to mention it in the forums I've done it a few times. First when I called out all of hockey I.1 for laying down to Leggmann for 10 seasons or so. Then when everyone was 'saving their energy' against the Coronas and Boilermakers. Pump him up in the forums and you might talk him into it. The bonus here is that bulls4ever will expect it and he'll probably waste some energy as well. So even if he wins, you gain something.

Centre Back for sure. Only requires passing at 50%. That guy will be insane come week 16.

Mojo is back to getting 300OR and good AVQ players. Crazy. 9th on his team in depth. Canuck I take it when you do your article that I helped with the lower OR and AVQ stats. LOL Last night I had a 218 and a 236 show up. Both useless, so once scouted off they go on the market for 10k hopefully

In handball, ~50% of players pulled so far had a maximum star rating of 1.5 stars or less. MAXIMUM rating.

You can see the three sports' SA performance in the attached images. The y-axis plots the percent occurrence of the MAXIMUM star rating of each player.

Varies by sport. Obviously one team in hockey/soccer will contribute more than one team in handball since you get more players at a given level of SA and SA levels are lower in handball. I think hockey was 1,000+, soccer was 700+ and I'm don't recall off the top of my head in handball.

I think I may wait to get more data. I mean, I can always re-published with updated values as more data comes in. I also have to decide what I want to plot. I do want to look at quality of pulls by week of the season too. All I have is a UNIX time code so I'll have to fetch season start times from PPM.

Heh the Epoch. Spent many a night going through logs and seeing many a timestamps.

Good luck today CARM. I got mojo. P.S. check out the two players he is selling. Horrible ratio's. I am going to play for the win. See if we can both beat the 2 top teams.

Too bad they could not just give you a dump of the data from the start of the season from each team with the additional requirements that you need.

We got this. It'll be easy. They won't have a chance! ...Well, that's what I'm telling my players at least. I'm expecting a close game.

Speaking of close games, I love my tiny goal differential. I never realized how close all of my games have been...

Top 5 OTS for US I.1:
FC Coronas 224
Boilermakers 221
Betamax 205
Bombsville 202
FakeBallers 190



Hell yes! I wasn't expecting 200 OTS at all. And it might be a bit better when I switch back to my normal 4-4-2. I think that gets a better rating anyway.

Raymond McCready and his 55 chem (spent 22 days on IR at the end of last season) comes through with 3 big goals in a 3-1 defeat of the mighty Boilermakers. Aww yeah

Dammit. I was afraid you would say that. All I ever pull lately is dmen.

Elvin Christensen is my youngest non-D good pull. He's 20 years old and fatally flawed (4/6 at 19yo). So he's not really good enough, but I'll include him just to say I've had one pretty good non D pull in the last 5 seasons. Next two up the age ladder are two 21yo CDs. Then I finally get my first really good non pull in 22yo Colt Diaz. And he's not really a great player. He's very good, but I already have very good players starting ahead of him. Eventually I'm going to need to get an upgrade.

Today, I went H/H to his L/L. I don't know why he doesn't bump that up to N/N at least. Especially on the road. He has to know by now that I'm going for it at home every time. Right?

I also play the Coronas, Betamax and Fakeballers at home in the first half. Holy cow. I'm going to have a rough second half. Hopefully I can get my points the first time through.

EDIT: Aw, come on! I scored 5 straight goals in handball to tie the game at 31 with 1:13 seconds left. Then gave up the winning goal with 47 seconds left and nothing else happened.

I failed to take down the Melons. Oh well. I did find out that my starters give me a 29 team strength (probably a 30 if my starting goalie played the entire game).

Decided to look at my staff on a whim today and found out my head coach and physiotherapist in soccer are retiring in the next two weeks - I typically ignore contract renewal messages, so I guess it's a good thing I thought to check!

The CF stud I was looking at (Samuel Rajtár) sold for almost 1.4 billion, too - I guess I'm a long way still from being able to buy one of the best players in the game.

Big day in hockey coming up. Will the Boilermakers ruin my hopes of making the playoffs, or will my (somewhat neglected) boys be able to pull through?!?
