That was my next thought. Kind of a shame. BUT, it saves the market from being swamped with players. There are already too many elite guys being sold as teams fold.

I think these players return to the market, but through the general bidding system. I think that's fair.

My defense had a good game in handball today - 15 steals! Still gave up 27 goals thanks to my backup goalie saving 1 out of 11 shots. ._.

I'm the only completely active team in the 17-20 playoffs in hockey, so I should be able to finish 17th and demote to II.4.

Dang, my soccer team just got a little better. Started off by winning a bid while I was asleep on this guy:



He's a little older than I would've liked, but he's still 4/6, which bodes well for a long future. I've been watching the CF market for a bit, and they don't come up often and go for a lot when they do - for example, there's zero 1700+ OR offensive players on the market right now, including 'For Sale'. I think that's a fair deal for someone who is now one of the best strikers in USA I.1, given how comparatively weak my current guys are.

Then, I pulled this guy from the academy:



He's got an 88.95 EQ for CM if I decide to train shot at 33% of primary, but I'll probably bump that up seeing as how his shot quality is 90.

Now begins the long wait until I save up another 500 million for a new goalie or SM...

Nice pull, great to get him so early in the season too.

That CF will help too, don't know if you guys noticed Grisons posted a 191 team strength today. He may pose a threat to you and tujague this season.

That is unreal. Early in the season. Stud Qs. High OR. You could likely fetch twice what you paid for that CF if you sold him now . 15. 6/6. Universal. Damn bud! That's pure gold!

@tujague: Can you add Fakezomg to the list of PPM managers on here?

Awesome pull!

Also Tujague, while you're adding Fakezomg, don't forget Trade Legwand. While you're at it, my Detroit Lions are in II.1, and Kytihu's Covington Rowdies are in I.1 (soccer).

I have noticed pivots tend to have the most steals and blocked shots in a game even if they don't have any blocking trained. I wonder how good my defense would be if i played 6 pivots on defensive formation...

If i play game 2 of hockey playoffs on VL (my team strength would be the same) hoping to get some extra cash from home game 3, can i get banned/punished for it?

IIRC if you lose the series as a result, it will have more severe consequences on your sponsorship offers at the end of the season.

Passing affects steals so you may not cause many turnovers.

You should be good for the VL, unless you work it out with the other team. Then bad.

I have a big hockey playoff game tomorrow. Grabbed a RW off the market today and am considering playing him on my third line. The new guy Martin Salsa is 1582 Overall but has 84 energy and zero chemistry. The current 3rd string RW is 1105 Overall with 89 energy and 100 chem. I'm guessing the extra 477 in overall trumps the 100% difference in chem. Can anyone confirm this?

I suppose you mean monday

I can't talk about the % if it's better or not, but i had a very similar situation to yours:

My original RW:
1277 OR
100% chem
218 xp
90 energy

vs new RW:
1784 OR
0% chem
100 xp
64 energy

(If looking at current stats, he had 67 energy i belive). I placed him in instead of my older RW, i don't know if my team is any better or worse. He will need to get that chem up sooner or later anyway.

Thanks guys - that was actually pretty useful. I ended up going with neither the new guy or the guy I had on the third line. Discovered one of my bench players was actually my best option. Let's see how things go on Monday.

I don't normally do this but I was matched up against a team I expect to finish in the 3-6 slot with me. (NKDJ and Kenora take 1 & 2 annually.) So, I bumped it up to Normal and secured a 1-0 win despite dominating. So long as I don't lose any more points to inactives (), with another win over a 3-6 team I should guarantee myself 3rd or 4th... once again.

Happy to report my team is starting to shape up in soccer. I've picked up a GK, LD, CD, LM, and CM. It's looking like I'll get my other CD in a few days. I was able to win today playing VL with low chemistry due to my recent additions. My forwards haven't been upgraded and are my weakest spot, and to top it off, two of my stronger mids prior to the purchases were out for suspension. Despite that, I still won 2-0. Even with my two mids sitting out, every category except offence came out over 100 after the match placing me at 8th in the league in team strength. I think I might actually be able to make some noise in Division II...

Well done! It can be fun starting late. You really get to play the market and come out of nowhere. Good luck! Keep us posted.

Just a quick heads up regarding my hockey team.

I'll be finishing up with my hockey team at the end of the play-offs and will be placing as many players as I can onto the market for sale.

So if there's anyone that interests you, send me a PM for details.
