I'm just getting started, but seems to be a pretty fun concept. You create a player, and join a team. Decide how you train. That's as far as i've gotten so far.

this is serious fun... I now have a 2nd player, a speed running back.

If anybody decides to play, use this to your advantage..



This is a guide to creating and upgrading your players. I am by no means an expert, but by talking with vets and reading a lot of forums I have picked up a lot of tips about how to make players generally and at specific positions. This If you have better player models or tips to add, by all means please do.

General Tips

Stamina

Stamina is crucial for any player. It doesn’t matter how good your player is if he is warming the bench. Furthermore, you get XP based on how many plays you play, not what you do during them. So being on the field is key. Here are some specific guidelines:

Offensive players - these do not tire as quickly as defensive players.

Level 1 - 12
Level 2 - 14
Level 3 - 16
Level 4 - 18
Level 5 - 20
etc.

Defensive players - they tire easily so they need a little more.

Level 1 - 14
Level 2 - 16
Level 3 - 18
Level 4 - 20
Level 5 - 22
etc.

Punters and Kickers - these do not tire much at all so they do not need as much stamina.

Level 1 - 8
Level 2 - 8
Level 3 - 9
Level 4 - 10
Level 5 - 11
etc.

All these numbers can be adjusted about a point or two, but if you have, for example, a level 2 C with stamina 30 that is probably a waste at that level.

Special Abilities

Special Abilities enhance your physical attributes. Thus without physical attributes they do not do much. The importance of Special Abilities varies from position to position.

-Very Important (add about 1 Special Ability point for every 3 you put into physical attributes) - K, P

-Important (add about 1 Special Ability point for every 4 or 5 you put into physical attributes) - QB, HB, WR, TE, O-line, D-line

-Not so Important (add about 1 Special Ability point for every 6-8 you put into physical attributes) - LB, CB, SS, FS

Also note that you must fill out the tree in order from left to right. for example, a QB’s Passing tree looks like this:

Pocket Presence -> Tight Spiral -> Pump Fake -> Turn Shoulder -> Field General

You cannot put 1 point in Pocket Presence and 4 points in Tight Spiral. You would have to put 4 points into Pocket Presence before the 4 in Tight Spiral would have any effect. If you notice, when you try to skip a step it says “requisite skill level not met”.

At this early stage in your player's development it is better to pick one tree and focus on it rather than trying to balance it all out between both trees, You can try to balance it, but your player will have a more solid immediate impact if you focus first then add balance later.

Boosting

You can boost your player up to 3 levels per season. You will need flex points to do this, which you can get by either purchasing them or by getting referrals.To do this Click on the Flex Points tab at the top of the page then where it says Level Up a Player, click boost and it will give you a drop down box where you select which player to level up and how many levels (up to 3) you want to boost him. It cost the same amount per level to boost a player as it cost to create him.

Custom Equiptment

You can make a piece of custom equitpment that increases any one attribute or combination of attributes +6. The cost is 100 FPs per +1, so a piece of custom equiptment that is +6 would cost 600 FPs. You can only use 1 piece of custom equiptment so don’t create two for the same player. That would be a waste of FPs.

Positions Guide

Here is a key:

Position Some I have divided into categories (eg.Power vs. Speed/Elusive HB)

Key Physical Attributes: These are the attributes which are the most important for creating a player at this position.
Other Important Physical Attributes: These are the attributes which are important for creating a player at this position, but not as important as the Key Attributes
Special Abilitites: I have grouped this into 3 categories:

-Very Important - Special Abilities are critical for the player's success. Make sure they are filled early and often(add about 1 Special Ability point for every 3 you put into physical attributes) - K, P

-Important - Special abilities are about as important as physical abilities. Pick a tree and add abilities to it regularly (add about 1 Special Ability point for every 4 or 5 you put into physical attributes) - QB, HB, WR, TE, O-line, D-line

-Somewhat Important - You should focus on physical abilities and add special abilities more sparingly (add about 1 Special Ability point for every 6-8 you put into physical attributes) - LB, CB, SS, FS

Other Advice: Any other tips about making this position.
Example of a Good Build: A url of a player at this position. If you post a url of one of your players who is very successful, please be sure to set his Attribute Sharing Option to "Everyone Can View".

Creating Positions

I participated in a league like this a few years ago. Not nearly as professional. I was a QB who was supposed to have mediocre arm strength, but great accuracy, and decent mobility. I was a 3rd stringer for some team, got cut, got picked up, threw 2 INT and never saw the light of day again.

You gotta love the requirement to either get referrals or purchased abilities. The site owners were smart to build that in to drive people to the site and pump up their traffic (aka Revenue).

What immediatly stands out to me is your stamina. Ideally you should get that up around 20. That allows you to get more plays, and to quickly get XP points.

Vision is important for every position on the field, so that needs to come up, if only a couple points.

Tackling should also be higher, ideally in the low 20s. You don't want to miss a sack.

Your speed and agility will be good on lower levels, but it's not enough at your player's level to make you a good pass rushing end. I would start with your stamina. You get an extra point to use off of all the equipment you buy, so I would use 2 or so on stamina, and atleast one on speed or agility.

He's almost a 30 for speed and has high agility, so we'll need a power back to mix it up. You'll get plenty of pt though. My rb's name? Funny enough. Cooter Splitter.

Just a couple of edits...I added a linebacker who I leveled up before the end of season 1, I've got 3 more boosts available for him in season 2. Currently a free agent. My WR is under contract, so a trade would have to be worked out for him. I removed my DE, since those spots are filled, I'll leave him with the current team. I've also got some flex points, so if we need to fill spots, I can create players.

How will you be able to trade for all of the players you have listed? I know that my current team owner is a stickler. There is no way he would trade me (soon to be level 11 starting TE) for CPU players. I hope we can pull this off. It will be fun.

For the other players that have expressed interest, what levels are you?

REDblooded
04-21-2008, 01:46 PM
just ask for your release. If it comes down to a cash deal, I'll make it work. We'll figure something out. If not, there will be a spot waiting for you as soon as your contract expires.

I have Canton Cannon who is a level 7 QB, Pancake Butterworth, a level 7 C, and Cooter Splitter, a level 7 RB.

We will focus primarily as a passing team, prob running a 55/45 split pass/rush.

All they said is they will be released tonight...... i'm sure they won't give an exact time, because it'd prob crash the servers.

They did say they live in Portland, so tonight is PMT...

As far as the team name, I was thinking something Reds related. You can just choose Reds if you want to name it, and we can always change it.

I'm willing to listen to input on the team name. I'd prefer it be something Reds related, since that's how we all met

Also, Before I add anybody (i'll be sending offers tommorrow), I am going to keep contracts on the low side, so that we can do things like build the stadium up. I will make sure we all have the money needed to train to the fullest, and buy items. Renegotiations will occur as needed. I'll be doing this to my players, as well as everybody elses.

With us having an above average level of comradarie from this board, I think that gives us an edge on building an actually functional team, which should lead to more success.

camisadelgolf
05-26-2008, 05:19 PM
The third seed is clinched. On the odd chance that there is a spy on our message board (a couple of our recent wins have been a little too close for comfort), I'll just post a few notes here instead. I'm not really sure what the owners can control as far as strategy goes, so please take this with a grain of salt.

One thing I noticed about our next opponent is that they love to run the ball, and they generally keep their passes short. Interestingly enough, they drastically changed their gameplan when they played against us in the regular season, and it completely backfired against them. As a result, they lost 40-3. Normally, they have a 2:1 pass:rush ratio, but against us, it was backwards. I'm thinking they should try to go back to their running game, and our game plan should be tailored accordingly.

IT HAMMERS TIME.

Like they said, for a quarterback, you need at least 300 FP to go up one level. At the lower levels, I wouldn't even bother leveling up to be honest with you. If you're not going to buy flex points, you might be better off retiring your player and getting a player that requires less FP to level up (i.e. a punter or offensive lineman). They may be less exciting players, but you'll be significantly more in demand and have a better chance of being on a good team.
