Re: No old players?

It is a good game and there are some interesting folk playing it ! Mars is a fabulous chocolate bar too (since 1932 apparently!).

Re: Training from experienced players

Quite surprised about the lack of 26 year olds in the top teams, I know my title winning teams had quite a few older players in late 20s. Guess people get rid when they start plopping. Might be a side effect of the bloated squads some teams have as its harder to keep skills up if they don't play eve...

Re: Training from experienced players

I don't hate the idea. Like Randall says though there is nothing being implemented at the moment and whilst this would be interesting, if there was going to be dev work, there is a lot of other stuff I would take over this and suspect it would be messy to balance. An easier way of doing it might be ...

Re: 23/43 bat 15/43 bowl 16 yo 2bowl characteristics

Re: 23/43 bat 15/43 bowl 16 yo 2bowl characteristics

Economical and F+G. That's a bowler with a split personality. How does that work then ? Do they net off against each other

Re: End of Season Player contract renewals

They don't negotiate ... their salary goes up immediately on the EOS turnaround.

Looking at your squad size, the cull needs to be soon, it needs to be brutal and there needs to be no mercy. I would be looking to get down to about 15 players max if I was you.
