I am starting to have a theory that I should not look at the academy before I go for a run. 186OR 1star for my first SA8. On the market for 2 days if not then my LB3 for awhile. Well lets see how Saturday's pick turns out. Going to look after my run.... not before.

Top that off with my N.C. draw of Edison Illuminating Co.

In hockey I am 1 point away from my point total last year. Sitting in 11th in II.4. Goal is to finish 9th or 10th. I will have the coin saved up for my Triple at the end of the season.

Football I was very happy to finish 14th in my first season in II.4. My first two triples are finished and I have the coin saved up for another.

So another season or two of playing 27+ year olds for hockey and 24 year olds for football as I limp along finishing my arena's.

Maybe you shouldn't run at all? I never run and I get decent pulls (except for hockey. I might start running on Wednesday night!) Even the pulls with bad Qs have decent OR lately. I just pulled a new goalie with 239 OR and bad Qs. Oops. Maybe not as bad as I thought. Now showing 69AQ. Not too bad at all.

Moving on

That's a tough draw for the NC. I was hoping for one more easier opponent.


Question: do players on NTs also play in league cup matches? And if they do, does the current energy drop for the second match? I have 6-7 guys called up and I have to play zomg's filthy Fakeballers again.

Yes they do and no since NT and club team energy are kept separate. They won't play in friendlies and NT though, only league cup games.

Liberty Bells still haven't put any extra players on their bench during the game. Well, 3 min into their game against my Rowdies, they get a straight red card. They're playing the rest of the match with 5 field players.

awesome...


I won the second round in football... Off to the 9th - 12th place.


tujague wait to you feel the WRATH of 228 OTR in the NC.... Perhaps they would like an all expenses paid vacation to Disneyworld and a trip of beers around the world at EPCOT before the game to even out the odds.

Man, you whupped my ass last week. That was brutal. And I also had a lineup error A leftover formation 2 from when I was messing with tactics. The deal with that was if I was trailing by 5 at halftime, then I would switch to a Wing attack and move my two big boys to the wing. Unfortunately, I had form 2 to switch whenever I was down by 5 at any point in the second half. Not just at halftime when tactics changes occur. Formation switched, tactics stayed the same, and you rolled the rest of the way.


Squeaked by the Fakeballers 1-0 in extra time next up is the damn Boilermakers.


My hockey team sucks Currently sitting in 7th, and I've spent some energy to get there. I'm starting to think that Shooting is over-rated. There's one team in my league with horrible shooting. They've trained offense instead. Shot is around 50, mine is 116. Their OTS is 110 vs my 124. But they have 18more goals and their shooting percentage is only 0.06 less than mine. That doesn't seem right at all.

I kind of thought that too, but now not so much! The number of times i lost this season despite outshooting my oponents by 20, 25 shots and winning tactics yet losing (or winning in OT or a tie in friendly) - i've stopped counting. I figure it's due to my low shot. Now i'm looking only for players with big shot. Though if certain teams train, say passing on a center to 80% of primary also seems to help, a player like that is top 2 in my league in scoring for 2nd straight year.

To add further to that, out of my 3 best centers, by far the best one is the one with the lowest OR. 416-333-208-208 center has 9 points more this season than 522-207-261-261 and 16 more than 520-216-260-260. And the difference can be seen when watching the game.

Also, i noticed you have 20 shooting strength in handball and your team seems to be doing quite well, no?

I finally got a decent hockey pull, 260-something and 4.5* at center, will see how he looks after he joins the team and i scout him, if he has good Qs i'm hoping one of you guys makes me rich

Though i doubt that will happen, when i put im on market i'll have 31% transfer fee, put a player yesterday on the market since i was expecting few RFAs to join my team in few days, and i wouldn't want to pay for 40+ players since most of them have high salaries (20-40k). I was waiting for 3 days to see if the RFAs will be matched, one hour after i put a player on the market - bam! All 3 matched! Oh well. Though i did get a player today, my biggest player purchase in hockey history, 6.3M for 1671 center. About time i improve that dismal offense of mine.

Gave up 6 goal lead in the 2nd half in NC to lose by 2 in regulation. Just F-ing great!

With that loss i've decided to put my money in facilities, i was saving to buy a certain 15 6/6 290+OR 88.9% EQ back for (probably at least) 30M, but now.... meh, i'll put in facilities so can can continue to be disappointed by my SA and train my 20+ 40%eq players.

Wow I won. Down by 5 or 6 at the end of the first half. 28-27 over Edison VH/VH Man that team is scary.... Darn Goalie Rowan had 19 saves. Never seen that many saves in a game. Then those 3 backs... Scary scary team.

I finished in the same place with more OTR than last season. Everything else is the same for my team. I suppose the USA may be dropping to 3 divisions and that's lowered my offers? I'll still be getting a lot of money, so it's difficult to complain. I just want to know why the offers are lower.

Dismantled a pretty decent LOL Euro Sports team that played VH 38-17. On to Sweet 16.

Cmon I've been waiting on Formula since beta..

In hockey. Blah seems like I've gotten hold on top3 in III.1 spot. If I climb I'll just probably fall back down next season. Spent all my money on facilities (got huge load of money for a great prospect) and now I'm broke after every wednesday. (Missed the sponsors at the beginning of the season).

That's true. Your team is the poster child for needing more shot Maybe this is just one of those seasons.

I completely forgot about our game I set tactics for the League Cup match with the Boilermakers, but didn't change a thing for ours. No you gotta win it all so I don't feel like a putz

And yeah, Oswald is pretty good in net Not great Qs, but he looks a lot better than he did when first pulled. Certainly good enough to tend goal for a season or two. He'll be even better when his chem is up.

Thank goodness you mentioned this. I had no idea we were dropping to 3 leagues. So I was a bit annoyed when I had two five star offers in the morning and each was only for a million more than last season. I even waited until the last minute to sign them because I thought there must be a mistake. I'm a bit over 24M for each, but I was hoping for a bit more with the CWC thing. Silver lining? You're -4.1M and I'm +2.3M. So I've gained 6.4M

Dropping to 3 leagues is just a guess. Our bottom leagues are re-organizing and we don't have many active users in Division IV (at least judging by IV.1 and IV.2).

I had a very lucky league win today on the road. My goalie made 23 saves, my oponent's goalie made 4, and none before (i think it was) 34th or 36th mintue of the game, so none in first period.

At least something nice after that choke of the century i had yesterday, going 1-8 in the last 10 mintues to lose in the NC.

Well it is a decent center after all:
http://prntscr.com/1y9xw7

15 6/6, universal, will on the market later today.

Though the 31% transfer fee will sting quite a lot.

Another 180 OTR 45% AVQ player from the academy today... And I am running tomorrow.... Meanwhile inter-melon pulls their 6th 240OTR + player. Seriously why is it some teams just keep pulling good players. My top player is now 11 OTR away from the top list for usa I.1 .
