I wouldn't spend that much. Get guys who are as good as the current players so you can use more energy in matches. I was either going to pick up one good scorer/goalie or add 3-4 guys around 160 OR. Or are those guys going for stupid money too? I opened about 15 guys in tabs to track them, but closed em all without checking final prices after pulling Rivers.

I sold my pull few days back, 15, 5/6, 171 OR for under 1M. Regret doing that, turns out i dindn't need the money yet, should have kept him in the team for another week and sold him then, probably the mistake was putting a 850k price on him, should have just put him for 10k, i'm sure he'd go for more.

They'd all be over 1M. I refuse to spend that much on a temp.

They were last week anyway. I tossed one up. Only mistake is initial price is 1M, may scare bidders away. A guy in my league sold a 149 for 1.7M with terrible Qs... 15 5/6.

Pulled a 197 while on vacation in the Florida keys- life is good.

Canucks-completely off the wall question here, but you're the only guy I know from Canada- do you know anything about visiting Montreal, my wife has decided that needs to be our next vacation and I'm fishing for info. (She isn't on this trip with me, I think that's why she is planning our next one right now)

Montreal is a great city. I used to live in Ottawa so made many a trip to Montreal. Now if you want to see one of the most beautiful cities please check out Quebec City. Or do both

I prefer the keys myself but that's due to weather and fishing .

Montreal is a nice city, drivers are a bit crazy but it is a fantastic city. I highly recommend at least knowing basic French though. Sometimes the people of Quebec can be stubborn when it comes to communicating in English even if they do know it.

I recommend going in the winter I think, much more to the city but that's really the only time I've been there (played against McGill).

Good to know, I'll probably hit both you and tescosamoa up with more questions if we decide to go. My wife knows a little french, her family is very cajun and her grandmother only spoke cajun french, and her dad was raised only speaking it until he got to grade school.

How are you guys doing with energy in Handball? I've been leaning on 3-4 guys pretty heavily and they are suffering. Three are down to 85 already, with the fourth (my goalie!) at 87.

I've decided that I need to use some defensive specialists to keep energy up. Anyone else doing that? I'm not sure if this is a smart thing to do because those guys also suck. Although I guess most of my players suck actually. I don't know.

Went high and won against top team in my league, was leading 5 goals in 1st period at one point, was behind 5 goals in 2nd period with 15 min to go, but won by 3 in the end. My oponents goalie had 44 save%, but my goalies played well too

My two best players after this game have 87 and 89 energy, while rest are at or just over 90. I'm trying to rest my top players if i'm leading 5 or more goals.

Few more league wins to increase my OTR and i'll be selling out, had 1345 spectators today

I recently switched from N to L for games as my SA wasn't replacing the original guys fast enough. My guys are anywhere from 92-99 energy in my starting group.

Are you guys using a completely different lineup to play defense?

I have my tactics set to switch to Low if I'm up by 10 at the half. There's a ton of freaking goals scored in handball, so I'm wary of going less than that. But I might drop it when I'm at home against the one-logins.

I also had it set to switch to High if I was losing by 3+. That wasn't very smart at all. I set that up similar to soccer without thinking about the number of goals scored in Handball. Duh.

Both of my wings are at 88, and the rest of my starters are in the low 90 range. I only play on Low now, unless I'm using a backup lineup, in which case I'll go with High or Very High. Haven't had to do that recently, though. I did play on High or Very High at the very beginning of the season and in the National Cup, which is probably why my energy is where it is. I only sub my pivot and center back.

I made the mistake of dropping to low from N when leading by 5. I lost the first game that applied to as I went from +5 after 30min to -7 after 60min.

I normally play fast breaks so I do not sub out change of possession. I sub out based on scores. If I am losing by 1 the best players play. Winning by 5 the B team. Going add losing by 10 B team as well. ( last 10 minutes ) Figure if your going to lose may as well rest the better players.

Well I will finish 11th in II.4 for hockey. Very happy with that result. One thing that I noticed which made me smile. No-one plays VL against me any more. That cost a few teams some places in the standings. I took 4 out of 6 points from the 6th place team which should leave them in 7th at the end of the season. Energy wise. Spent lots. But I am hoping to just win the first round of the playoff's. Then I do not care where I finish.

There is a 3M pivot on the market that is so tempting, i don't know if i'll be able to resist 6/6, 204 OR.

Big day for FC Bombsville. My Camp ended last night and I forgot to start the next one in time. So I finally get to see what my real starting lineup looks like. Well, minus Lemieux as the second forward. I need him when everyone else goes to camp and he already has two yellows. And I'm using Grincas at JSD even though he's not as good as the other two. Yet. Other than those two, it will be my best players. I can't wait to see their ratings

After that, I have to make a decision. Keep my guys out to have the starters against the Boilermakers this Wednesday, or send em to camp so they come back in time to play the Fakeballers. That's the team that beat me out for 4th last season. I can't score on either of Obryantj's goalies, but I hate lying down against the top teams...

That's what makes Handball so hard. It's possible for any team to rattle of 7,8,9 goals in a row. It's very hard to feel safe with a 5 goal lead. Even an 8 goal lead isn't safe against a 1login team. The top team in my league just lost like that. And I almost blew an 11 goal lead. They cut it to 2 before I pulled away in the end.

That's interesting. I haven't really delved too deeply into multiple formations. I'm not sure why. I did a bit in Beta and it seemed helpful.

For now, I think using a more defensive lineup will help me. I have the two recent pulls who are good enough to start and have the energy to play a full game. So I only need to use four defensive players.

Congrats on the big finish in hockey

Yeah. That market is tempting. If you could add the right player, you could dominate. Thankfully I only have 2.3M so I can't buy much I try to stay away, but it sure would be nice to add a good player or two. Maybe after I get SA7 started.

I am sending a maximum of players to the game, and i wish i could send a few more. My players are all mixed up, don't have a solid LW i can play so one of my pivots plays there, in some formations then he also plays pivot. Have a RW that has high blocking but low shooting so he only plays defence. Same with some backs who have high shot but low block and vice-versa and only play on offence or defence. It's a mess! I'm dressing 7 backs for today's game I'll have to sort this out soon

I'll try to stay away from that player, hopefully someone bids one more time so he gets out of my reach so i don't do something stupid

In soccer, what do you guys like to use as your shooting ratio by position? My team seems to have trouble scoring despite controlling the ball better and shooting more than other teams. I'm just wondering if that's because of my shooting, or just bad luck.

I go 1:1 with the forwards. For Mids it depends on their shot Q. I have two with good Qs. Their shot is trained better than tertiaries, but not as high as secondaries. I wonder if I should go higher?

Defense is the same. Except I don't really train it at all anymore. I used to. Then Obryantj (I think) mentioned not training shot at all, so I stopped. I have a few in the 60-70 range. I might train some higher as an experiment if I had a better team. But I'm just trying to keep with the Jones' right now.

Speaking of blowing leads in Handball

Up 25-19 with 8 minutes to go, EIC allows 8 straight goals to lose 26-27. That's a bad loss right there. I had been on a roll. Dammit.

Is there a +/- type stat in Handball? There should be. I would love to know if my crappy defensive subs gave up more goals per minute than my tired ass regulars.

I saw the game report. Tough loss. How come you didn't switch your goalies? Says in the guide if a goalie gives up few goals without making a save his morale goes down. I have both goalies go switch if they give up 3 goals without making a save.
