    Fun online game I just found. RPG for Football!

    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.

    Re: Fun online game I just found. RPG for Football!

    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

    Pocket QB

    Key Physical Attributes: Throwing, Vision, Strength
    Other Important Physical Attributes: Confidence, Agility
    Special Abilitites: Important - Focus on the Pocket Passer abilities
    Other Advice:

    Example of a Good Build:

    Elusive/Speed HB

    Key Physical Attributes: Speed, Agility, Vision
    Other Important Physical Attributes: Strength, Carrying

    Special Abilitites: Important - Focus on the balancing point between both trees
    Other Advice: This type of player is tough to build well and takes a very specialized game plan to uutilize his skills effectively. Since you are trying to balance attribute points it may take a while before your HB reaches the same level of effectiveness as more specialized HB at the same level.

    Re: Fun online game I just found. RPG for Football!

    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).

    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Re: Fun online game I just found. RPG for Football!

    I really want to create a redszone team and see how well we can do....

    I'll create a QB and start setting this thing up. I need committed players, and once we get close to having a full starting roster, I'll create the team and start offering contracts. Let me know what position you are creating. Skill positions only go to those who are willing to pay a couple of bucks to level up please.

    Re: Fun online game I just found. RPG for Football!

    Ive been playing that game for about 2-3 weeks.

    Here are the players I have:
    Level 7 DE
    2 Level 4 DTs
    Level 2 Guard
    Level 1 Punter (I only created him because it was 100 flex points)


    I'll create another player (DE) if you want to make a team.

    Mack Diesel - Lvl 4 TE

    Currently playing forthe Pennsylvania Silver Knights in the Southeast Asia A (Alpha Conference).

    I would definitely join a Redszone team. Just let me know!!! Also, I am really questioning if I am making the right decisions for flex points / equipment / leveling, etc so if someone wants to share strategy here, that would be appreciated.

    If I were to advise you on training and stuff, I'd tell you to put play intensity at normal, and training intensity at normal. If your energy is low, you may want to do relaxed training for a day, to help you get back on track.
