Bummer. Likely because it has the word "game" in the description. You can always come back. I got a buddy signed up a few seasons ago. He went IV-III-II in his first two seasons! It can be fun starting late. Play friendlies against 20,000 capacity teams and shop the market almost daily for dinosaur players that are cheap and would dominate your IV or III league

Now I have no clue where to spend it. Look at my team. Tell me what you would upgrade.
I hate you guys.

Of the near 5 billion in I.1 right now I account for a mere 0.07% of it.

Just think, in real life... you'd be the 0.07%!!!!

Wait, that is a good thing when it is the other way. Dang, I got nuttin'.


#####


On a more serious note I did my A, B and C lineups today. It appears I have more prospect depth than first thought. My LM is about the only position I don't have a I.1 backup quality player though I do have a decent 18 yo 6/6 LM in the cupboard. I think this season coming up I'll just sit on my money and toss it all (500M+) on some super stud. I'll then sell him for half the money I paid for him just like my 200M UCF I bought this year

Well, I just got eliminated from the National Cup. I was hoping to make it to the final eight, but looks like that won't happen. Oh well! Now I can focus more energy on the Champions League, which I'm getting destroyed in, or the league.

Also, congrats to Kytihu (sp?) for promoting to I.1 in soccer! I hope to join you next season.

When I feel like it The old guys probably leave in free agency. I'll get the younger guys more playing time next season (16 & 7 games this season, plus damn near all of the CWC matches). The goal for this season is 20 games each. I'll try to use them in the ChL as well. We'll see how that goes though.

Diaz is the next in line. Not a great player though. I shoulda bought that guy yesterday. Then it's Korbetsky. Screw it. I'll get you some pics.
What are Diaz and Korbetsky's average training per day for this month? Have they had changes to their training ratios lately? What about McCready and Dekker?

As an example, Tim Hammons is averaging 1.338 training per day this month and Taganovich is averaging 1.112. Hammons is 134 points behind between Mid, Sho, Pas, Tec, Spe, and Hea. So excluding training camps, injuries, and experience, at the current rates, Hammons will catch Tag in 134/(1.338-1.112) = ~593 days. At 145% increased training during camps, Hammons should make up 7*[(1.45+1)*(1.338)-1.112] = ~15.16 points while in camp, which equates to what he would make up over 15.16/(1.338-1.112) = ~67 days outside of camp.

Quote:
21yo 1600 OR 4/6. Assume solid Qs. Nothing dragging him down. Most over 80, maybe one or two in the mid-high 70s. 50-60 exp. What do you pay?

Also there's no way I could pay 1B for a player. I don't make nearly enough to make that a worthwhile option.
If it's a need and they would step in as a significant upgrade immediately, then 200-500M easily.

No, you did force me to sell a couple of guys I would have hung onto. Which is what I asked. But I also kept those few people that we discussed. If you didn't have to help that other guy, I probably would have bugged you about this stuff, too

I'll get that post with the practice pics up later tonight. I have them separated by position and want to add some other info.

I don't think the forwards ratios have changed. I don't even train McCready with a particular ratio. I always just train whatever feels right with him. Training last month is:
Korbetsky 1.422
Diaz 1.311
McCready 0.872
Dekker 0.897

Korbetsky is replacing McCready (both righties). He's -318OR. 578 days to catch up. Diaz is 186OR behind Dekker. 442 days. Eff me. I really should have bought that dude.

I used to keep track of all of this stuff for hockey arena. I guess I'll have to buckle down a bit.

Okay. I guess I just have to spend the money. This just makes the game worse for me. You know how much I hate the way the top teams can just buy their way to a wider gap. But I have to do just that so I can catch you two. Much sadness.

Heads up, the High Hitterz just folded, and he had quite a few good national team players. His soccer team should fold soon, too.

Tracking bids on all players. Granted, not much there of interest to me.

Damn. This is probably going to open my eyes more than anything. Everyone should do something similar. Or maybe yall already do and I'm the only one who manages his team by dropping frozen hotdogs on the keyboard.


Depth chart:
McCready - 1589or 84exp - 0.872 (avg training this month) +77 (OR gained since Oct 20)
Dekker - 1600or 89exp - 0.897 +89
Diaz - 1414or 55exp - 1.311 +132
Korbetsky - 1271or 36exp - 1.422 +144

The rest are train & sells.

EDIT: I'm not really happy with any of this. McCready/Dekker is a good start, but they're nothing special. Ditto for Diaz and Korbetsky. It's a very good groupd against every other team in the league, but I need something that works against you guys. A stud like Young or Jalon would make me feel a lot better. Diaz actually led the team in scoring this season. Against weaker competition, but still huge numbers.

Dekker's first season at 3/6, McCready's second. Diaz's first at 4/6, Korbetsky's 3rd at 5/6. Not too bad.



Side Mids Left:
Svorad - 1536or 53exp - 1.376 +135
Arkadius - 1203or 18exp - 1.482 +148

I could pretty much say this about all of my starters except the CMs, Svorad is a solid player. Decent OR, 4/6 at 22yo, nice Qs. Solid. I really like Arkadius Mauer. He was 6/6 at 18yo. He's got two camps to go, but he'll end up ~120 OR short of your plan. I still think he's a great combo of CL, Qs & OR. He was the reason I sold US U20 LW Kelly White.

Side Mids Right:
Krajco - 1517or 60exp - 1.334 +135
Erbe - 1195or 17exp - 1.505 +148

Krajco is solid. I'm not even going to type that anymore. He dropped to 4/6 last season. Erbe is something else. Almost as good as Arkadius, but bought at 17yo and already 5/6. No telling where his CL goes from here. If I'm lucky, he could be a very good RSM in a few seasons.

I should probably add a great swing USM. Whether that be a good third wheel to Arkadius & Erbe or someone who takes over for Erbe I don't know. But I need another guy out here.


Central Mids:
Stamper - 1478or 61exp - 1.310 +125
Crabbe - 1492or 46exp - 1.306 +131

This is my weakest position, but the one that has made the most progress. That's how bad it was before I don't know why Stamper's ratio is so weird though. I've wanted to replace at least one of these guys for years. Just never had the funds or found the right guy. Every time I went shopping for a new CM, I always found some other player who I just had to have.

bin Mamat - 1258or 14exp - 1.422 +139
Orlovic - 1271or 20exp - 1.386 +141
Mezuz - 1021or 10exp - 1.597 +151

I think this is a very good group of prospects. Mamat is very close to being the top 19yo in Malaysia and Mezuz is already easily the top 17yo in Israel. And neither has had a single day in training camp yet this season. Mamat was bought this season at 5/6. No clue on past CL. Orlovic has quite good OR, but dropped to 4/6 at 19yo. He's probably the odd man out in this group. Mezuz is 5/6 at 17yo. No idea when he dropped. I wonder if the Israeli NTs would have a clue? If their CLs are even respectable going forward... Anyway. I really like these guys.


Central Dmen:
Sauvage - 1563or 116exp - 1.360 +137
Gregorovich - 1540or 54exp - 1.328 +134

Two old guys. Gregorovich could see his playing time reduced dramatically because his exp isn't that much better than Carpenter or Strickland. I'd love to hang onto Sauvage for a while. A good experienced Universal backup could be handy.

Carpenter - 1395or 44exp - 1.433 +144
Strickland - 1339or 36exp - 1.491 +149

I really like both of these guys. They're getting good playing time and are close enough to the starters in OR. Maybe by the end of next season they will both be the starters. I could easily see a 3 man rotation with Sauvage being the way going forward.

This is Carpenter's first season at 4/6. That is a worry. Strickland was 6/6 at 18yo, so he's good to go.


Chalk - 731or 8exp - 1.554 +134
Anderson - 563or 2exp - 1.538 +62 (pulled 12/21)

Both interesting players. Chalk will be close to your 800 or goal for 16yos. Anderson will reach 600 or at 15yo despite being pulled in the middle of the season. But he does have that 58 pass Q that will hold him back. Still a very good player.

I think the center of my defense is set if CL paths hold up. The 20yos replace the geezers, and then the 15-16 yos replace them. Good setup for quite a while.


Side Dmen:
Blount - 1521or 67exp - 1.120 +113
Grincas (R) - 1530or 73exp - 1.284 +129

van der Linden - 1431or 47exp - 1.332 +134
Coates - 1169or 18exp - 1.611 +161

This is where I made one of my tougher cuts. I did have a solid LSD that gave me a very good group of players. But I had to sell him because everyone else I wanted to sell dropped CL this season. I'm not selling anyone in the first season of a CL drop unless their OR is very good. I'll have to replace that player soon. Heck, I'd like to make a big purchase with a USD. the new guy could step in for either Blount or Grincas.

van der Linden is a nice player to have, but he's really more solid like my starters than anything special. Coates was supposed to be sold already, but I kept him on because of his OR and Qs. He's amazingly made it to 18yo with his original 5/6. Could be as good as Young/Jalon, only at a much less valuable position.


This is exhausting. I'm going back to the hotdogs.

Funniest thing I've read all day!

Edit: I just checked this season's growth on one of my RMs (3rd on depth chart) and he is up 178 so far this year with 10 days to go, 4 of which are camps. He could very well break 200 OR gained in a season. Makes me wonder what my top trainers will be like... I'll check next Sunday all my players... for kicks. (Pun not intended.)

My top hockey trainer has gained 218 OR in the last 112 days. That's insane! Then again he is nearly 800 OR and only 16.5 years old which is phenomenal.

Damn, I preemptively added a bunch of his young guys to the u17 team so that if his soccer team folds they'll hit the market too. Messaged the managers of the other 2 teams telling them to consider doing the same. Tough losing another good manager and would hate to lose the players with him.

Sad that the first thing that came to my mind was that now I'll finish 7th next season.

Is anyone else tired of searching the market for those damn training camp sporting directors? I'm so freaking annoyed with this whole process that I'm giving up on the whole damn thing. I'm getting two SDs who are 100/100 just to end the madness. It'll cost me a few extra dollars each season, but I'm rich, *****. If I can stop carrying 45 players and paying 1.5M per day for that, then I'll more than cover the costs.

I think the worst part of the process is every SD I'm online for goes for 10M, and most auctions I miss end at 5M. Until today. I finally got my guy for 5M. I think other bidders were scared off because he's 100/100 and his contract ends in 5 days.

That's almost as frustrating as pulling a goalie in hockey with Qs of 92/87/91 with 5/6. Boo!

I just tossed one on the market a few days ago in soccer. But I started carrying 200 OR SDs in hockey awhile ago and I am starting to do the same in soccer now.

Just bought myself a nice winger for the future. I need to fix his ratio, but his qualities are awesome:

Edit: This is also my first national team player in any sport. That's a little exciting for me.

It's late, but I'll throw out some analysis here.

High-level notes:
  • Qualities for the top two line-ups look good
  • Ratios appear to be copied from specific players
  • I like to have players in trios rather than pairs
    • You have large drop offs between #2 at a position and #3 at a position
    • For the side positions, a universal player can help with this
  • Goalkeepers not evaluated

How much would your save in salaries and fees if you removed the train and sells from your roster? When do you expect to sell them? How much do you expect to get for them?

Your best, and most valuable, player is Shipp at 22 and 1,634 OR.

Here's some of the 22 year olds (or younger) on other teams that qualified for the ChL (from USA I.1) with higher or similar ORs:
  • FC Corona
    • Ashcraft (CM) 21, 4/6, 1,794 OR
    • Blechta (F) 21, 4/6, 1,708 OR (46 goals this season)
    • Lin (G) 21, 4/6, 1,625 OR
  • Boilermakers
    • Crenshaw (RM) 21, 4/6, 1,616 OR
    • Young (F) 20, 4/6, 1,685 OR
    • Jalon (F) 20, 4/6, 1,639 OR
  • Arlington Betamax
    • Schoenknect (F) 22, 3/6, 1,601 OR
    • Leon Romo (LD) 22, 4/6, 1,614 OR
  • Fakeballers
    • Nestrak (CD) 22, 3/6, 1,778 OR

Center midfield sticks out as a position that's not peaking at the same time as the other positions. The starting CMs and SMs are the same age and CL, but the SMs are better by 48 and 89 attribute points and have more experience.

Recommendations:
  • If targeting a player to start immediately, aim for someone at another position that is better than Shipp now and in projections
    • Target a CM, but do not pass up a bargain at another position
  • If targeting a prospect, compare them to the prospects at the same age (or younger) on the 4 teams above
  • Consider bringing in players to bridge the gap between your starters and prospects
    • Someone who reduces the drop off between #2 and #3 now, but will still be in the rotation when your 19 and 20 year old prospects are ready to be starters
    • Rotate those players into the lineup to rest starters and in case of suspensions and injuries
  • Evaluate your roster size now and after every few additions

I keep 100/100 guys now. The amount saved by buying them on an as-needed basis hasn't been worth my real-life time.

Good luck! My SA-10 has not been helpful. I think this was my 7th pull (25, 32, 39, 46, 53, 60, 65 days until SA-11 finishes) and is the first 3* (or better) player I've seen at SA-10. He was 3* at GK, 223 OR, and 6/6.

That is awesome, congrats!

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

Has anyone noticed a significant amount of revenue from souvenirs? In my case, specifically in soccer. For this season, 43% of my stadium expenses have been covered by souvenir sales. All-time, it's at 33% of stadium expenses.

Edit: Now that I think about it, it's probably from NT players bringing a share of the revenue. I'll check tomorrow to see if that still seems right.

I typically get 1.5M/game in hockey. For perspective that's 27.3M thus far while arena maintenance is 76M (covers 35%).

Mine cover 24% of arena expenses.

I'm losing my head. I have finally managed to fix the Maintenance Calculator for handball, but the results for facilities don't match with the PPM expenses neither for hockey nor handball

High-level notes:
  • Qualities for the top two line-ups look good
  • Ratios appear to be copied from specific players
  • I like to have players in trios rather than pairs
    • You have large drop offs between #2 at a position and #3 at a position
    • For the side positions, a universal player can help with this
  • Goalkeepers not evaluated
*Thanks. Some of them do have that dreaded one bad Q, but I'll make do.
*Yep. I've copied Taganovich, Aldridge, Spicer, someone else on defense... I do this with young players a lot of the time. I'll just put them on a known training schedule and let them build from there. I can say "I want you to look just like Zak Aldridge" and basically ignore their training for years and know that they are on a good path. When it's time for them to get playing time, I will then adjust training based on Qs, if necessary.
*Next three bullet points- I had players in Trios, but my roster is in a bit of a transition right now. I have to cut down on fees, but I don't want to just get rid of the young players that I've kept this long. I need to make something off of them. So I've sold a lot of my solid backups. They had higher salaries and I prefer to play the prospects anyway. Player fee is down to 862k from 1.5M at it's peak.
*No point in evaluating Goalies. Shipp is the starter and I just replaced 25yo 1250+ Cernorhorsky with a 23yo with 1450+OR. No one else really matters. I'm looking to add a good prospect, but it isn't a necessity. Yet.

Quote:
How much would your save in salaries and fees if you removed the train and sells from your roster? When do you expect to sell them? How much do you expect to get for them?
No clue. No clue. No clue. I have vague ideas of when to sell, but I'll let that happen when it's ready to happen. But the next group of train & sells will be proper players. I'm not holding onto average pulls anymore. I've passed on several over/near 400OR.

Quote:
Your best, and most valuable, player is Shipp at 22 and 1,634 OR.

Here's some of the 22 year olds (or younger) on other teams that qualified for the ChL (from USA I.1) with higher or similar ORs:
  • FC Corona
    • Ashcraft (CM) 21, 4/6, 1,794 OR
    • Blechta (F) 21, 4/6, 1,708 OR (46 goals this season)
    • Lin (G) 21, 4/6, 1,625 OR
  • Boilermakers
    • Crenshaw (RM) 21, 4/6, 1,616 OR
    • Young (F) 20, 4/6, 1,685 OR
    • Jalon (F) 20, 4/6, 1,639 OR
  • Arlington Betamax
    • Schoenknect (F) 22, 3/6, 1,601 OR
    • Leon Romo (LD) 22, 4/6, 1,614 OR
  • Fakeballers
    • Nestrak (CD) 22, 3/6, 1,778 OR
Yeah. This is where I'm lacking. This is the next step in the remaking of my roster. I started with upgrading the Midfield and defense a few seasons ago to get them on par with the forwards and goalie. I needed to get all positions up to a certain standard. Then I added solid prospects at a lot of positions. I love all of my purchased midfield prospects, and my academy has been pumping out defensive prospects lately. Diaz and Korbetsky are okay up front. Right now the roster is solid and the backups are acceptable.

Next step in the process is adding some stud players to the lineup. This is the hardest part because you and the damn Coronas keep moving the damn target. I planned the roster with one thing in mind. I focused on that until I was happy with the team, until I was making up a bit of ground. Remember when I was comparing my team to you two a couple of seasons ago? It was working dammit. Then I look up and you guys are even further away.

Quote:
Center midfield sticks out as a position that's not peaking at the same time as the other positions. The starting CMs and SMs are the same age and CL, but the SMs are better by 48 and 89 attribute points and have more experience.
CM has been weak for YEARS. I never seem to find the right player to add.

Quote:
Recommendations:
  • If targeting a player to start immediately, aim for someone at another position that is better than Shipp now and in projections
    • Target a CM, but do not pass up a bargain at another position
  • If targeting a prospect, compare them to the prospects at the same age (or younger) on the 4 teams above
  • Consider bringing in players to bridge the gap between your starters and prospects
    • Someone who reduces the drop off between #2 and #3 now, but will still be in the rotation when your 19 and 20 year old prospects are ready to be starters
    • Rotate those players into the lineup to rest starters and in case of suspensions and injuries
  • Evaluate your roster size now and after every few additions
*Yep. It's gonna be expensive adding Shipp quality players, but that's definitely the next step.
*Are CMs supposed to be this hard to find?
*I'm trying to avoid adding prospects, but it's difficult. I love building a player up from the beginning.
*I think the bridge players are already o the roster. The goal is to add players who are better than my current starters. Therefore the current starters would be the bridge.
*My 19-20yos are already part-time starters
-Mauer and Korbetsky 20 games played
-Erbe 17
-Strickland 16
-Mamat, Orlovic and 17yo Mezuz started 9
-Carpenter on had 7 starts because I used a 3-5-2 with the B-squad.

I need to add a CM right now(as if I haven't been doing this since...season 10?) and a good LSD/USD. What I'd love to do is replace the 22-24yo players who have 15-1600 OR with some 20-21yos with the same. Getting younger would open my window considerably.

I also need to commit to spending more on players. Is Dekker at 165M still the most I've paid? Yep. How many players have you bought that cost more?

And I'll have to do the player comparisons with the top three teams again. That kept me more aware of the damn target.

Awesome player, but 62M?!? Wow. I've got just under 10M right now, and it's gonna take a while to save up enough to build anything.

Exactly. This isn't worth wasting my life. I realized this after I had bowed out of the bidding several times. I was awake around Midnight and decided I might as well hand around until 2AM to get the SD I needed. I did just that and the bidding got insane again. So I was wrecked the next day and I still had nothing to show for it. So screw that nonsense.

Heh this is great stuff for down the road in all 3 sports. Right now I really am micro focused on Handball. Which I will say I am in big trouble. Here is the team I field ( Age/OR )
G1 :17/260
G2 :21/246
RB1:17/297
DRB1:16/227
LB1:20/252
DLB1:16/240
CB1:17/273
DCB1:20/234
LW1:17/265
DLW1:16/256
RW1:17/268
DRW1:20/216
PV1:21/277
DPV1:16/307

Yea I field 5 players on my A team below 250OR. I figure this season or next season will be it for me in I.1 The whole of last season I produced one player ( last week to boot) and I still have 9 players from the start still on my team. 9 players lol. So I am not hopeful at all with SA10/11 bringing me any players to replace those sub 250 players. LOL. I cannot for the life of me figure out how I am beating I.1 teams with such a subpar team. The telling stat that I am worried about is the amout of shots I am allowing a game. I am sitting second last there. There is only one team worse than me and that is the cajuns who sit with 1 pt. Either there is something wrong with their ratio's or I have the luck of the Irish.

Carm nice pickup. You spent 68m and you drop to 6th for coin in I.1 You will make that up easy over the next few weeks. Spending money to make money.
