Spinner Max Speed

Postby James018 » Wed Jun 26, 2019 11:48 am

I keep noticing this and keep forgetting to post it :lol:

I track all my bowlers' maximum speeds and have consistently noticed that my spin bowlers' maximum speed slowly increases over time, regardless of age or skill. I believe this is a remnant from very early in Stumped's lifetime, when pace bowlers' speeds gradually decreased over time: this was changed so it only decreased if the player didn't bowl at all in the previous week, but the same change wasn't made for spin bowlers. I also believe this was fixed for spinners very shortly before the Big Crash (circa season 11) and the fix was un-done in the resulting reversion to backup.

Can this please be re-fixed? It's such a tiny thing, but I do feel a twinge of annoyance when an attacking spinner who bowls it nice and slow slowly loses his deadly flight.

Just a reminder about this, whenever you can get to it. One of my spinners had a fractional increase in max speed this week, so it's obviously not fixed just yet.

Was reminded of this old issue when I noticed one of my spinners has crept up in speed again :lol: No huge deal but one of those little annoying things that it'd be great to see fixed.

James, did the spinner receive line and length coaching? That increases a spinner's speed slightly.

You may already considered that though.

No, he's not, and yes, I did consider it. This is happening with all my spinners and always has - including senior ones that I'm not even thinking about coaching in anything :P
