I am thinking on going with two pivots defending against spain. I made a test on my friendly. it wasnt great but the two pivots didnt do anything bad neither (turnovers or excessive fouls - 2min)

in a real handball, the "1" on 5-1 defense must be fast and aggressive player. well, neither one of the 2 defensive pivots i called are fast ... but if i sum speed+aggressive they are the top 2.

and it is not uncommon defending with 2 pivots on 4-2 neither.

Will next season be like this one with very little friendlies????

Bulls looked good against Team USA but the next 4 games will tell if he will help with keeping the shots down. That is the biggest issue my team has with the lower OR players.

My first camp in handball s3 is underway. Newest purchase trained 1.74 on a 90 Q (don't have him scouted yet but that's what his previous manager wrote).

After buying him few days back i immediately slotted him instead of my regular pivot and he was #1 star of the match scoring 5 and blocking 5, despite losing the game, and in all-star game. Which is wierd since he had like 37 agr and my regular pivot has 49 and is really never that good.

PS: canucks357, if you're still looking for a pivot, check Marcel Hýll

Thanks! I should be home from Houston then. We'll see what kind of money I have left since I have 4 guys I'm following come due between now and then.

Canuck you wrote this in one of the forums

Here's how it works:

Every time you play VL/L against a team like your own (no penalty/less penalty against teams that are much stronger than yours) a position in a queue is flagged. Each home game, if there is any left in the queue, you will be penalized depending on the amount of L/VL you played.

The key thing to note here is, there is a cap on the size of the queue (you can only be penalized so many times in a season).


Does this work the same for chemistry and experience ?

That's what I heard. As far as chem/exp goes... no. You just gain chem_added = imp_level*factor. Same with exp.

I made a lineup of all guys who won't see any ice time this year. They'll go VH all season in friendlies. However, I have an experiment to run, so, they'll be given the first week or two off. I need 7-10 friendlies to complete my study.

Well the day I've been dreading has come, Spence Marshall's RFA demands came in. $160,000,000 was the top offer, with signing bonuses I only had to shell out $32m. I certainly don't like losing money while not improving my team, but it could have been a lot worse.

Oh man. If he demanded that much how much will Sharrard demand from me?

Not bad Q's for a keeper. Just tech and speed at the 62/60 If he is around for 15m I think he would be worth picking up. Myself I am passing as I have SA12 and TF12 within the next 3 weeks.

I desperately need a pivot. I'm running 280 and 240 OR pivots each with sub-30 shot and block. It is BAD! The guy I got for 6M was showing 80Q in Agr but came back with <70 when scouted. Guess he will be back number 5 for me. Getting shored up in that department...

Other than the guy i mentioned earlier, who i think could be quite expensive, there is another solid pivot on the market:

Oskar Sjöström

Chat says scouted Qs are: 21/57 - 58/94 - 37/92 - 34/64 - 24/59 - 41/97 - 30/70 - 39/77

15 6/6 and 285 OR. And if lucky coud be bought at a good price.

Pivots is the only area I have any strength. I am running a 346 and a 315 the backups are 278 and 255.

Off to a nice start in hockey. 2-0 with the subs playing. Liking the bonuses for winning

This season I have the following goals.
1. Add 2 Triples (2500)
2. Upgrade OG's Defence with 3 RFA's
3. Win 25 games and finish top 8
4. Facilities SA7, MC7, TF9, RF9 and MC11 Or put the money towards another triple. Have not decided on that.

So its another year of grinding away and awaiting the money to build triples.

Outsider is complaining again about his lack of 300 pulls in handball. Only 4 and none in 3 weeks. That guy pissed away the triple this year. He could have won NC , the league and playoffs with his team.
4 players above 350 and another 9 above 300. First world problems.

sorry, but .... Outsider lost everything this season
1. Did not win the Elections when he though he was a lock
2. Lost Moderation when he thought it would never happen
3. Will not win D1, unless I mess up big time
4. And coming playoffs, he may face bigger issues as he is losing home court advantage and it has proven it matters in the playoffs.
5. Lost NC because he was cheap on spending energy on his players when he was that close.

If Outsider had won the elections , him and I would have been running the NT team. I did not mean that post to come across that negative. I was just venting some steam from RLI ( real life issues ) and it just happened to be a post about 300 OR players that set me off. I apologize for that and Bulls I do not want to drag any of the PPM issues into this site as we keep it clean of that. Mind you it is a pity to lose out on such an opportunity this year for Mojo. I figure 4 VH halves cost him about 50 million and about 20 to 30 OTR over the next season or two. I will just leave it at that.

Is that in Handball? As far as I can see the game is just starting. Do you have a crystal ball?

Hell week is about to begin for me in handball. Generals, Rowdies, Emus, and Mountaineers all in a row. Depending on how close I am to 5th place, I may run my 2nd camp before playoffs.

Hockey has started off quite well, though I haven't played top tier opponents yet. I'm currently putting up a 167 teams strength with only a 600 OR goaltender. I should be pretty strong after this camp ends.

As you can see I have a Crystal Ball ....
when I cant watch live and I am available 1 hour or less from game start I can just look at the code, add one line of code in the source code and I can watch it (or just go right to the end)

Damn. Missed the deadline. Just the type of guy I wanted too.

Sounds like me! Gave up 3 goals late to lose by 1 I need to get points against the teams below me since I'll have a tough stretch of 5 games in a row vs. top-4 and hottest team in I.1. Not a lot of wiggle room after that I suspect

Bulls, really needed that W from you today. Emus are coming for 2nd with a bullet.

Also, what the heck is this talk about manager points and manager rank? I'm not pro pack, so maybe I'm missing a metric entirely. What's going on?

They are talking about the trophy page for a manager. Shows your points for winning leagues, playoffs, international and national tourneys.
