Haha one regret I have,is not giving you the link to make you all my satellite clubs when this thing first started. You get a % of pro that they buy.
ditto, I have to make sure I add more pro days before my reserves get wiped.
Queenslander 3x a year.
When one of my players is injured does the number mean how many games, or how many days he will miss?
I assume with the Red Card that it is the same?
Just trying to figure out when my best central defender and striker will be back...
It's the number of games they're out. Depending on your facilities there is a chance that can go down by 2 in a particular game though.
Thanks Tegal, that helps, means I have one more game for red card, and 2 more for the injury.
All my facilities are in the process of being built, can't upgrade them more right now.
Question about routine - I have a defender with 22 routine, who is slightly worse than a defender with 5 routine. How important is routine and should it be a decider in my selections?
I think the closer your get to the Premiership, the more important routine is. If you don't have a B team however, then you've got to give them experiance at some point (you could do that through substituting them on with 10 minutes to go though). It probably depends on how large the skill gap is.
As I have a B team, I don't like to put anyone forward to my A team unless they have at least 10 routine. Sometimes because of injuries & cards you have no choice, but I always feel uneasy playing a guy with less that double digits routine. They'll be some guys in the Prem who probably don't like playing anyone with under 25-30 routine - I'm too impatient to wait that long though.
Yup ^. I'd also add that the goalkeeper is the most important routine position, I'm very uneasy playing a low routine goalkeeper. Routine is (I believe) a collective thing across midfield, defence etc. so you can get away with having a low routine midfielder if your others are quite high.
Alright, cheers guys, I have some surprisingly high routine in my team so guess that helps.
I am curious, when are the teams and tactics locked down for each game? Is it an hour before each game?
Yep that's right. You can make changes up to an hour before each game. I think if you make changes within the last hour then it will not take place until the next game (you'll also see that each player has a little hourglass next to him, indicating he is about to play a match I think).
What are the pros/cons of having a reserve side vs fielding a 'B' team?
I want to build up my squad routine and get them more than just training especially the youth, but having a B team seems ridiculously costly (90 pro days) vs having a reserves team.
A B Team and a reserves team are exactly the same thing...
Yellow Fever - Misery loves company
OK, well a Reserves team vs having a second team altogether then?
A second team altogether is literally just a completely seperate club. A B team is part of the same club so you can promote/demote players. I don't know what else to add to that haha.
A second team has to be in another country and I think you can't trade players between the two teams, so it is of no use if you want to build routine. They are basically separate entities.
I have a desperation question - can someone look at my team and advise me on tactics? I can't find the right formation and tactics to play with. Any help much appreciated! http://trophymanager.com/club/2642973/
One thing I'd note - I looked at your team earlier, and it seemed that you had a right midfield player playing in left midfield, and your right midfielder was a player out of position. I'd say you probably want to try get the best out your players by playing them in position where possible... I don't know about different formations etc though.
Your defense/keeper seem to be going alright.
Seems you have good heading stats going forward, so I guess you want to try utilise that ? I've not actually had players with particularly good heading going forward, though is a key stat for strikers I've heard.
Yeah I've had 3 straight games where I've put a gold star crosser on the wing, and a gold star headerer up front alongside one rated 18, still can't score!
My RM is back on the right now, just so happened that my two best players were at the same position so I sold one of them, I shall put others back where they belong from here on. Thanks!
Haven't had a look at your squad, but from what colvinator says..are you playing the wings as your attacking style?
