Re: Player retention: increase youth pull quality

To be honest, I see stumped as one of the few online games where there is a reasonably clear path to the top divisions. More so than in most games due to the hard ish cap in supporters at the top. You have to manage your club well but if you do then it's not difficult for a new team to progress up ...

Re: Player retention: increase youth pull quality

I don't agree with the suggestion as I am not sure skill inflation serves any purpose. The youth pull system should be fairer. It used to annoy me that some teams would get multiple 50s whereas the best I had in 3 years was a 46. This year, I have had maybe 5m quids worth of youth pulls so maybe th...

Re: Ashes

He admitted to cheating and only admitted when he was red caughted. To him "it was part of the game". Err no he didn't. I can't find any reference to him saying it was part of the game, ever. If you can back this up I'd be incredibly surprised - but feel free to put me wrong! After the in...

Re: Season 21 League Matches

Congrats on the win.

Layton has certainly had success against my team with 24 wickets, a great performer over a long time.

Re: Ashes

Wonder what you thought of England's fourth innings LBW review on one that was missing a whole other set of stumps? :? Well smith has a history of cheating It's funny though, the info about the whole incident suggests that Smith didn't really cheat himself - Warner was the mastermind and Bancroft t...

Re: Player retention: increase youth pull quality

We don't want to get to the point where matches are effectively the flip of a coin and player skills/management don't matter. The data I posted in the first post here suggests that the current system is so heavily biased towards longevity it's pretty hard to argue that it's legitimately skills base...

Re: Player retention: increase youth pull quality

We have a few interesting ideas in this thread: - Increase player quality through better youth pulls - Impose stronger penalties for losing games - Increase rate of member joining for younger teams - Increase earnings for lower tiers The member gain / loss issue / earnings in lower tiers could be co...

Re: Player retention: increase youth pull quality

If there were more 43-45 players available in the game, it would reduce the price of said players, but increase the price of the next set of players - the 46-47 ones. They'd be even more sought after, since everyone would already have a suite of 45s. I worry that this would, over time, just create ...

Re: Player retention: increase youth pull quality

OK you're right - a 40 pot player is not good enough. say 43-45. When you say "plenty", low 40s players are the ones I get 20% of the time (so 2-3 per season) and the 43-45 I get 5% at most. 45+ is the 2% number and of these only two have been batsmen, both 47. So my guess at the distribut...

Re: Player retention: increase youth pull quality

Rob has said on countless occasions youth pull quality will not be increased. I was founded 2013 and am in 6th in Div 2 SOD, possibly overlooked? Yeah I must have missed you (and the team in 5th is also a 2013er). If you want to see the numbers my analysis is at https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...
