Recommended Posts

Re: TLW Alliance: I tried to join that a while back but got not response to my "application" - i'm somewhere in the 5000s ranking too.

 

Might be best to pm Monty via tlw and give him a boot.

I've become engrossed by this game now - not sure why. Have £1 million in the bank and have a few decent batsman, my star player being:

 

Louis Glennon (2802574)

 

Louis is a steady RH Batsman, and a steady RFM Bowler. He has abysmal leadership skills and abysmal experience.

 

Plays For: Old Swann CC

Nationality: England

Age: 19 Years Old

Battrick Rating: 18,721

Wages: £2,079 p/w

 

Preference: None

Trait: None

Stamina: mediocre Wicket Keeping: abysmal

Batting: superb Concentration: strong

Bowling: worthless Consistency: woeful

Fielding: competent

Battrick Helpfile

 

That link should be a great help to you.

 

Other simple advice:

- Don't spend any ridiculous amount of money until you have £1.6 million in the bank.

- Looking at your leagues they are pretty much full of bots (computer controlled) so you should walkover these players.

- Copy and Paste your squad onto this page so I can see their skills.

I've got a starting 11 which goes:

Clist ©

Abrahams

Casper

Flintoff

Doncon

Saville (wk)

Andre

Muir

Pook

Mathers

Carr

 

Got 3 bowling coaches - Muir, Carr & Mathers

3 batting coaches - Abrahams, Clist & Casper

Saville is on wk coaching and Pook is on Stamina training.

 

I've got a few 1000 bids in for 'competent' or better in batting & bowling which, if any of them go through, should raise my team a little.

 

I have also fired 3 players who were 24/25 and going nowhere.

 

What do you reckon? Am I doomed?

 

Cheers.

Right, you've inherited a poor squad like I did.

 

The nets you've assigned are to players who are 30 years old and thus will have no overall effect on their skill levels going up so scrap that idea. However, do not fire the coach's because this cost further money to you.

 

I do like the idea of buying "competent" skilled players but their age is key if you want to train them. 17 years old is the best age to train any player because they learn the quickest.

 

What you want ideally is a player with the following stats:

 

Stamina: Mediocre

Batting/Bowling: Competent

Concentration/ Consistency: Mediocre

 

I did a quick search on the Transfer Market and there is a fair few flying around who are cheap. If I was you the maximum I would spend on 1 player would be 20,000 for now until your finances are secure. You can use the filter to search for the criteria I posted above.

 

Another thing you'll need to know is that the primary skill (Batting/Bowling) needs to be complimented by the necessary secondary skill (Concentration/Consistency). For a good Batsman trainee you need "Competent" batting along with "Mediocre" Concentration. For a good bowler you will need "Competent" Bowling with "Mediocre" Consistency.

 

Stamina is also essential - a player with worthless stamina is going to be a rubbish player because he will not last more than 5 minutes on the pitch without either getting out or bowling a 12 ball over.

 

 

 

If you go onto the "Community" Tab and the click on "Sledging (Forums)" from there you can join the "Newbie Q's" section and have a read/post any questions you need answered or alternatively ask me.

 

P.S. - Your team at the moment will crucify the bots in your leagues but be prepared to take some batterings from real life opponents who will have good teams.

Yeah - I've already had my 1st friendly and was all out for 66. They managed that with 10 wickets in hand in little over 11 overs.

 

I'll have another search for players knowing the stuff you've just mentioned - age, stamina, etc.

 

Cheers fella - I'll give you a challenge when I've got the hang of it. For now, I'm sticking to challenging those around my rating.
