Let him win the midfieldd
I got the same thing pretty much, the guy I play, plays a 5-3-2, or a 5-4-1 with CA. So basically what I was planning to do was go at him more with attack. I'm gonna try and break his defense with a 3-4-3, with 3 IM's and one winger. It probably won't go well for me though, my CD picked up his 3rd yellow of the season and has to sit the game out, so I could be in trouble.
Basically the counter attack works for the other team when you dominate midfield. If he dominates your midfield, he won't have countering options. Like I said though, I'm not gonna lose the midfield just to try and beat him that way, I'm gonna go with an all out attack pretty much and hope to just be able to break him down.
Stupid question. How many yellows does it take before a player is suspended? Can a guy with 2 yellows still play?
Yes. Three cards=suspension
Unless he got them in the same game
If I take the option to attack on the wings, will that weaken my midfield enough or make any difference at all?
AOW only weakens central defence... it makes no changes to your midfield rating.
Could you clarify this for me please? Do you mean that he will get training if his injury status is 1 week or "bruised but playing" on training day?
Or do you mean that he has to play at least one minute?
I've also heard it said on the conferences that the player has to be "bruised but playing" on training day to get trained.
+1=bruised but training. And all he has to be is that for him to receive training. Bruised but playing means he can start a game.
I'm undefeated, #2, with wonderful team confidence and playing a crap #6 team next week. Should I fire my one psychologist to avoid an overconfident slip up?
If you're confident enough of their ratings and your own ratings to pull it off, if midfield is going to be close AND you fear their CA ability (CA rating plus their defense vs. your offense to turn away your opportunities plus their offense vs. your defense to finish their CA opportunities), then giving up a couple of points to lose possession (prior to the CA penalty). Otherwise, the best attack you can muster to punch through their defense and a good midfield to feed the attack are what you need. If you've got the wingers for it, you'll want to focus offense on the wings (away from the strength of a 5-3-2).
On the contrary: I believe that psychologists actually prevent underestimation from happening.
I've got three of them and my confidence has been wonderful since match #1 this season, but I didn't have any overconfidence events.
Last year I was ranked #7 and played the #3. He won the two matches before our match and his players underestimated mine. He had no psychologists (he told me).
Lost an important goalie for 4 weeks. He's 22 years old. Already have 1 doctor. Will hiring 3 more really put any dent into the 4 week injury?
Will probably help some... hiring 8 would help even more.
I had a 18 yr old get a 4 week injury about a week & 1/2 ago. With 9 doctors, he's already back to "bruised but playing". Looks like he will only miss out on 1 week of training.
Does AIM help your midfield rating?
No, neither attack redirection tactic affects midfield (or attack) ratings. Only defense.
So Hattrick time is +6 hours EST?
Yes, it based on the time in Sweden, the home of hattrick
Which is Central European Tine.
Ok Hattrick gurus
What is the effect of Stamina on a player's skills? I'm using Hattrick Organizer to manage my team, and it lists one of my defenders as a good choice to play WingBack defensive. He has a stamina of but the number it spits out for him is comporable to my other defenders with their stamina of 5 and 6. Do I play him, or will the opposing side put in a ton of goals come the second half?
The main effect of stamina is when a player uses playmaking -- if the stamina is below excellent, there will be a falloff later in the game.
There is a lesser effect, though... defenders with less than weak stamina (I think) can experience a negative "tiredness" special event, and if the opposing attacker has better stamina, then he can exploit the tiredness to create a scoring chance.
Is the tiredness special event also one where the player gets too tired and needs to be replaced? So Craig, do you think its better to play the passable defender / passer with wretched stamina or the inedaquate defender / passer with passable stamina - form being equal?
Transfer market questions. I have a 26 YO keeper who has a TSI of 1770 and is a passable keeper...my team was awful and I spent a modest amount ($100k) over the past week strengthening my squad.
I have a recently promoted youth keeper who has a TSI of 500 and I "weak" keep ability.
I am in division VI and not realistically challenging for anything at this moment.
I have yet to play with the recently acquired players (not sure if there is a "gel" factor for a team"
but wonder if I should not capitalize on selling my keeper to bolster the rest of the team and play with my young guy..or if I would rue the day I gave up my experienced keeper.
How old is the youth, and what do you plan to train?
