Come-from-behind win for RCR in game 2. Dominated shots but was down 2-1 with a few minutes left in the second. Ended up winning 4-3. 3rd vs. 6th is off to game 3. Will have to wait to see who I face: 6th (137 OTS) or 4th (175 OTS, tops in II.3).

Made it through to round 2 in hockey. Not a surprise

How much did that cost? After my convo with canucks, I went looking for some 170+ and those prices were crazy. I can't imagine what 219or costs.

3) Bouncing in-and-out of the playoff picture. Starting to become more consistent but still find it hard to predict games I'll win and lose.
3) This is one of the weirdest sports so far. I don't know if it's normal, but every damn game now is seeing one team go on some stupid run scoring 8 out of 10 goals or something like that. Three games ago, the other team scored 8 in a row to beat me by one goal. Two games ago, in a tie game, the other team scored 13 of the next 14 goals to crush me by 10.

In my last game, the other team closed out the first half with a 9-3 run for a 16-11 halftime lead. Neither of us changed tactics or players, and there were no redcards. I picked up 4 2-minute penalties in 4 minutes, and was down 16-23 with 18 minutes to play. I outscored them 11-3 to win 27-26. What the?

2) 2400 seats. Is that Small with seats? Aren't those expensive? I've gone with Medium stand-ups for now. I only have 3 of them, but I'd like to get 8 before the end of the season. Only 400k per.

2) I'm planning on going 8x large standup max capacity. Not sure what that gives for total capacity but I thought it was in the 2,000 to 2,400 range. Edit, I should have said 2,000. 8x 250 is what I'm hoping to obtain. saint2e has achieved it mid-season so I hope to be able to as well.

I have used timeouts. In the first game I mentioned, I'm up 25-19, they scored four straight, I called TO, they scored four more. Next game it's 22-22, they score four, I call TO, and they score 9 out of the next 10 goals. In the last game that I won, I'm down 16-23, I score 4 goals, opponent calls TO, and I score 7 of the next 9.

Timeouts are what?

Make sure you find out what saint2e's media deal is next season. I'm not sure if Large stand ups with 2000 seats are worth 13.6M. I'll have 1600 for only 3.36M.


And I'm so glad that I waited for SA6. That crap never works. One player with 133OR

Handball:

Training- Almost done with lvl 6
Regen- almost done with lvl 5
HR - just started lvl 6
Maintance - lvl 2
Education - lvl 1
SA - lvl 6 is complete, should be able to start lvl 7 tomorrow (I hope if my math is correct).
Medical - lvl 2

I've managed to keep the growth pretty even across the board.

Games / Standing:
I'm in the bottom half of 1.1 right now, and have been dropping games lately- I had been busy and not looked to closely but looking now it appears it wasn't using my starting D lineup and that was causing a pretty big blow. I think I've fixed it. I managed to pull 3 solid backs. and a new goalie so I should be doing better than I am.

If I continue to lose games I'll strongly consider unloading my "top" talent right now- tank this year, build up facilities because I have a feeling by this point next season my starting lineup will be almost completely different.

I guess also important to add- my top guy trained at .32 last night. Once I reach .5 per day I'm going to really start having to work on ratios, right now I have everyone just going field play.

Can't belive i actually won, now i advance in 2nd round, facing a team that played entire season L/VL. But he uses same tactics all year long so maybe i can get lucky, but i'm not counting on it

edit: uh how fast my OTS is falling from something like 174 to 171 to 167.. hopefully sponsors don't punish me for low energy!!

In hockey, I was swept by the Psychos (as expected). The highlight of the series for my team was Nicodema Malta's game 1 performance (43 saves on 44 shots in a 0-1 loss). Next up is the Goldfish, who currently show a 210 OTS vs. my 174 OTS.

In soccer, my training camps have ended and I was able to see the ratings of the three projected starters who were in camp the last few weeks. Spicer earned a 35 IGR (with 65 chemistry) at GK, Taganovich earned a 41 IGR (with 74 chemistry) at CM, and Young earned a 52 IGR (with 74 chemistry) at CF. Looking at the IGRs today, my three lowest scores are at LD, CD, and RD. There's a possible solution for one of those on the market, we'll see if I can win the auction at a decent price.

In handball, my team continues to stroll through the first season. We regained second place today, but no real effort has been put into the team outside of developing facilities. SA-7 was started today and after waiting for SA-6 to finish before pulling I was rewarded with a 2.5* prospect. Thankfully he also has 208 OR and should slot into a position of need (LW).

The player i put on the market trained +0.45 today, with TR 6 and regen only at 4, which puts him 131st world wide, with top 10 all in training camps, and i guess quite few more along the way. Also trained 4th best in the country, with top 3 all in camps.

HR 5 finished, and i'll put lvl 6 in construction later today. Will leave training at 6 until i get enough money to put HR on 7, after that i'll put training on 7.

Tie game in Handball yesterday. Then the other team scores 15 of the last 20 goals. W. T. F.


I had a similar wtf game in soccer where I somehow scored 6 goals That's with four starter still in camp. I played on L/L. My 148OTS vs their 130. I used a 4-5-1 vs their 5-3-2.

It's been a great beginning to the season. Much better than expected with two camps going. Now I'm hoping that I can get past the Fakeballers with at least a point. That would be awesome. Then McCready and co would be back

Dude. That's crazy. You must have made some money on the market. My facilities are at 6-3-3-1-1-6-1. I can afford to build HR4 & RF4, but I kind of wanted to save up for TF7 first.

I noticed

Your team is pretty good. Your CMs are crushing mine. So I might have to spend the money there. I know I keep wavering on where to spend the money, but this just about cements it.

Good point. I'll have to stew over my stadium strategy.

You're not giving me much hope for tomorrow morning when SA 6 finishes for me. <Sigh> My buddy who manages Godot also got squat - not that he needs any stars. The guy turns water into wine already with a mediocre team.

I guess the question becomes whether or not the press centers are worth the extra 10M in stand construction. I have 800 for 280k

I have made $240k on player sales, spent $110k.

Here's the best part:
I've made $5,246,923 on staff sales.
Coach 1 - 525k
Coach 2 - 550k
Physio 1 - 40k
SD 1 - $1 million
Physician 1 - 200k
Arena 1- 40k
SD 2 - 400k
Physio 2 - 560k
Arena 2 - 70k
Coach 3 - 1.8 million


(They are in reverse order so Coach 1 was sold yesterday, coach 3 was my first staff pull)

Similar pot of gold from staff sales for me too:

Coach - 3.6M
Coach - 1.1M
Physio - 105K
SD - 500K
Coach - 3.0M

Total +8.4M

As a result, my facilities are 7*,5,5,1,1,7*,1
* - under constuction

Ya ya rub it in. Some of us were given 5 lecturers and 2 custodians for our first 7 staff members... hard to make lemonade when you're given dirt instead of lemons.

Football won a nice upset in the Superleague cup today. On to round 4.
Hockey one more win and I am playing in the 9th 10th placement final.

Handball

6*-5-5*-2-1-6*-1

I have 3 large stands done. Going to do 4 med and 1 large stand up. Then leave it at that until we see the media deals

My handball facilities are 6-3-4-1-1-7*-1. Currently saving up for TF-7 and rolling with 800 seats. Utilizing my starter players and some 1-2.5* pulls, I've built my team strength up to 15. Good enough for tops in IV.1 and should be top 10 in the USA.

Entering today's soccer matches, I was 10th in OTR. After a 6-0 win today in the ChL, I dropped to 13th (at least). It's going to be difficult to finish the season in the top 10 again. The team I beat today won against my next ChL opponent 4-0 last week. I don't anticipate any trouble advancing out of the group.

The server just went down for maintenance, but I didn't think you were all that far behind (especially considering you still have a camp going with 4 starters). I'll try to scope it out a bit when the servers come back.

I have some spots to upgrade, but apparently I don't have enough cash to do so right now (judging by the final sale price of the player I was after today).

For those that didn't notice, a Finnish team sold some players for a little over 4B today.

I posted above, but in case you missed it:

I waited for SA-6 to finish before pulling. The result was a 2.5*, 208 LW. His Qualities don't appear to be great (and his AQ is less than or equal to 62 and currently shows as 31 to me). He did manage to score 9 goals for me today (he has the highest shot and block on my team).

OR is everything right now. I recall when hockey launched I had guys carry me from div3 to div2 that had atrocious AQs (looked at them today for this very reason) but had great ORs for pulls. I've seen a 200+ OR guy score 16 goals in a game. He'll help you win now. I need some immediate help... Qs are a bonus.

Agreed. Just trying to give you a little bit of hope for your SA-6 pulls this week.

Okay, maybe you're not killing me in the middle. But it is the biggest discrepancy. 41+39 for you compared to 33+32 for me.

If you're just talking about our overall teams, the difference is still pretty good in your favor. You're up to a 173OTS. I peaked at 155 for our game and that was with all of my starters.

Any idea where our OTS's were at the beginning of last season? I might go have a look to see if we posted. Oh, wait. I can see that graph, can't I? Yep You peaked at 147 and I was at 122. I went from -25 to -18. That's not too bad.

If you don't have enough money to upgrade, then we're doomed. WE'RE ALL DOOMED!!!!!!!

I just had this discussion on the US forums. I'm not surprised by how many players with crap Qs I'm seeing, but to have almost no change in OR from SA2 to SA6 is a bit fatiguing. Thankfully I did get one very good pull. I'd be in trouble without Rivers. He had 18 goals and 3 assists today

4.7 mil. On a Wednesday at 1:00 eastern time. So you could probably get one a little, cheaper on a different day. Maybe.

I got him scouted a couple of days ago. 79 AQ! Everything except speed and aggressiveness are above 83 quality, and even those are in the 60s. He's also top 750 in the world in terms of OR.

Plan is to build around him and another star player. I'm hoping to get one from the academy, but I may have to buy another beast once I reach my facility goals.

EDIT: I got a lecturer and a custodian today. That's worth at least 20k, right?

A Czech hockey team spent over 7B in purchases this season solely on 15 year olds while rebuilding. Makes me sick thinking how much money i'll have to gather after maxing out my arena and facilities when i'll decide to (re)build.
