Keep in mind players are more rare in handball than in soccer which is more rare than hockey. Basically, the bigger the roster the higher the odds for a good pull. So, may want to acquire some stud youngsters because, afterall, you only really need 6-8 good players.

That is true, I'm really deep with my backs, like 5 deep... maybe have to sell one to upgrade my pivot.

Edit: This actually got me thinking so I went into my lineup and now have 4 formations on offense, normal, backups for a lead, then 2 variations of using the 5 backs at the same time if I'm trailing as they are my 5 best players. Will probably only be able to do this for a short time while players ratings are still pretty even across the board and not too position specific yet.

As for the RFAs, thanks. Of my four 25-year olds, only one doesn't have a replacement on the roster. I could theoretically sell off some established stars and allow some younger talent to start full-time. I have some very good players on my bench.
Yeah. Ya think? I'm not even going to look at your backups, but I bet you and the Coronas could each field a competitive team with your backups.

Quote:
As best I can tell, Bragg's success is due to a combination of the following:
1) Experience
2) Luck
3) My team's system/tactics

By #3, I'm partly referring to him teaming up with Mark and Taganovich. Mark does not put up good numbers for his OR, but I like to think his shooting attribute helps Bragg somehow.
Yeah. I think #3 is what's happening with my team this season. McCready isn't tearing it up, but the overall offense is in better shape than ever since I re-built the midfield and the defense. Instead of just relying on Mac, the rest of the team is now good enough to do some damage. If I could get him scoring at a goal per game plus, and Shipp performing slightly better, then I'm battling with the Betamax for 3rd.

I think you can remove #2 Luck from your list. It was luck when my Middie Howell led the league in scoring while playing out of position. Sandy Bragg is the all-time leading goal scorer in US I.1. It's probably not even close. The last two seasons have not been luck at all.

EDIT: I really need to figure out how to get my guys to score goals while playing on anything below High. In today's match, I had 12 shots (6+6) in the first half on Normal. Switch to High because I'm not winning, and we score 4 goals in the first 10 minutes of the second half. Finish with a 6-0 win.

My fees have been creeping up as well. Maybe I should try to cut my roster back down a bit. I'd like to avoid selling rotation players, junior NT players, and my top prospects (some of which don't yet have the OR to be on their junior NT).

I'd like to get more production out of Young to serve as a 1-2 punch with Bragg. Outside of the league, Young has done well. In the league, a 0.50 G/M average isn't going to cut it for a phenom.

I played some backups today (around 5), but was able to pull off a 3-0 win on the road. I played on normal, but this is the point of the season where I can burn a little more energy (i.e. fewer matches left to worry about how much energy I have).

Arlington's win today was huge for me. Aldridge's pending suspension will probably not cost Corona (he'll be back in time for your match against them), but will keep him from getting those two team of the day nominations.

Managed to win my first handball game in I.1, with my starters only playing 12 minutes. It was against the runner-up last season, so I'm reassured that I will be successful this season.

I beat an inactive in soccer today. Nothing exciting there, and the rest of the season will be rather dull I think. Only 1 game against a team close to my strength, though it's possible that I will be the victim of an upset.

Today should be a good test against Mojo Xpress. I am 5th overall with cash in USA... All ready for the next facilities upgrades in HB. I need 109M for the year to do them all....

D'oh.

I set my handball lineup so that my opening formation is my top players, formation 2 kicks in when leading by 5 and adds a few subs into the mix, and formation 3 is supposed to kick in when leading by 10 and is all subs. Unfortunately, on the offensive side I forgot to switch formation 3 from "any score" to "leading by 10" and had my subs play on offense for all but the opening play.

Narrowly lost, but won't be making that mistake again.

I lost to some jerk in Handball today. First loss in a long, long time. I don't remember the exact numbers, but it must have been around 20 straight wins before some jerk beat me in Handball today.


How much do Physios help training? I am currently in the process of replacing my aging hockey staff. I sold my two older Physios, but only replaced one so far. Here's the training progress for the team:
Code:
Date 	Practice 	Change
2013-09-18	1.322	+0.013
2013-09-17	1.309	-0.016
2013-09-16	1.325	-0.042
2013-09-15	1.367	+0.035
2013-09-14	1.332	-0.031
2013-09-13	1.363	+0.044
2013-09-12	1.319	-0.044
2013-09-11	1.363	+0.006
2013-09-10	1.357	+0.000
2013-09-09	1.357	-0.019
2013-09-08	1.376	+0.049
2013-09-07	1.327	+0.074
2013-09-06	1.253	-0.073
2013-09-05	1.326	+0.000
2013-09-04	1.326	+0.002
I sold the first Physio with 74/74 on 9/11. His replacement was already on the team with 73/75. I then sold the other old guy on 9/15. I haven't replaced him yet. And I just noticed that I never promoted the 73/75 to Head. He's my only Physio and he's an Assistant.

My training isn't that different, is it? From the highest training to the lowest, it's only a 0.067 difference. 7% and I basically only have half a Physio. And I think the real difference would settle around 4.5% on average. I had been looking to add another Physio, but now I'm wondering if 4.5% is worth a 150k daily salary.

I've noticed regen has a smaller impact in hockey/soccer than in handball. I saw a BIG training jump when RF finished in handball... something previously unseen.

Oh, man. Looking at the schedules, it's going to be tough for me to hold onto 4th place in soccer. There's no way I can go undefeated and I only have a 2 point lead on 5th. Hell, I'm only 4 points up on 6th. Damn. I have to play the Coronas, the 3rd best Betamax and a bunch of other good/average teams while the Fakeballers are playing 6 of the bottom 8, one good team that doesn't really try (High Headerz) and redcard's Mouth Breathers.

My HFB brothers are going to have to help me out here. I need doug and redcard to waste their energy helping out my team

I need someone to be my Obi-Wan Kenobi. Help us. You're our only hopes.

FYI:


Training goes 1:1 with Qs. I.e. 50Q = 50% of max training for that C/L path and facility combo.

tescosamoa must be talking about OTR. You're tops in the US with 19 OTS. Tied with the EIC and Outsider's Mojo Xpress.

Obryantj and tescosamoa are 4th and 5th with 18 OTS. That means HFB has four of the top five spots in the US

No camp for me until I am finished this credit tourny... Returning champ.

Soccer I beat the piggy wiggy team with backups and on VH

Sitting in 13th with 39 points, 4points up on 15th. A tough finish with the top teams as well coming up. I think I will need to get 6 to 9 points in the remaining games to stay out of the regulation rounds.

Very cool. I was trying to figure out what he meant by 3 points, because I didn't think there were 10 teams with 22 OTS.

SA8 finishes tomorrow. Last two pulls have been like 128 and 147. So of course I can't wait to dump more money in that hole.

No. The opposite actually. Since you are now an HFBrother, you also have to help me stay ahead of you. You can be my Obi-Wan! Please kindly play all of your remaining games on Very Low.

Woo!!!!! Clinched a CHL Berth thanks to you guys. You're all awesome. Even doug, who was humiliated 0-3 despite playing on VH.

Welcome to the club!

---------------------------

In hockey, I advance to the quarterfinals for the 2nd time in team history. Unfortunately, I drew the Psychos (the best team left) in the next round. In other news, today's league victory moved me up to 5th in the standings.

In soccer, my team lost its first match in over 2 months on Wednesday (against Atreides in the ChL). Including the league, ChL, NC, and friendlies, the Boilermakers had gone 68 matches without a loss. Sandy Bragg continues to dominant the league in scoring. He's currently outscoring 14 of the teams and is outscoring the other 7 teams' top 2 scorers by himself!

In handball, my league win streak has continued into my new league (USA III.1). I thought it would be snapped today as I played VL against the 1st place team (on the road nonetheless). I'm looking forward to pull 1 of 6 at SA-8 (SA-9 is under construction).

to make matters worse. Melon got a 262. So now he has 3 top players in the league and 1 or 2 more in the top 20. I have zero players in the top 20. Soon tactics will not be able to overcome these better academy pulling teams. I do not want to start going after players until at least TR9 or 10.... and I have my team scouted.
