    Apparently there's a problem with the HT server (which hosts BT... or something) and other people have been affected by it. No problems for me though...

    Use this link: http://195.149.144.130/nl/main.htm instead of http://www.battrick.org.uk and it should work.

    Having my opening bowlers bowl through now, a team decided to bat first at on my green pitch... 60 all out. I've played 2nd and 4th in the league already (they're 2-1, I gave 'em the 1) - this team is third... Looks like my debutant isn't going to do anything at all in this game.

    What's Emmanuel's bowling skill? Must be around strong with wages like that?

    Thanks for that link Adam, it's working for me while battrick.org.uk isn't

    I just got this guy:
    Earl Whibread (317103)
    LH Batsman, LM Bowler, respectable form, Healthy
    A cautious player with superb leadership skills and abysmal experience.

    Plays For: Magical Ponies
    Nationality: England
    Age: 17 Years Old
    Battrick Rating: 3,926
    Wages: £267 p/w

    Stamina: mediocre Wicket Keeping: woeful
    Batting: abysmal Concentration: competent
    Bowling: feeble Consistency: feeble
    Fielding: woeful

    I have no real young bowlers, so hopefully this guy can do something for me after some training. Was only 1,000 pounds.

    Yea, his other attributes are crap, but I get the impression he could get virtually anyone out (it's a massive bonus to get those 100+ averaging players out cheaply). This is also why I'm loathed to get rid of respectable fielders - it seems to me they're another prime source in getting the 100+ players out, amongst other wickets (Packer for instance got a few catches in that game).

    Interesting - I haven't really paid much attention to fielding ratings as none of my players are better than competent, but checking over the stats just now seems to suggest that there is a noticeable correlation between fielding ratings and catches taken.

    That player with a BT rating of over 6 million that someone mentioned earlier apparently had the following ratings:

    Stamina: superb Wicket Keeping: superb
    Batting: woeful Concentration: elite
    Bowling: remarkable Consistency: elite
    Fielding: elite

    Was a bug though, so he's been killed, or at least regenerated as a relatively crap youth pull. Would be interesting to see if a woeful/elite batsman is any good though.

  11. #761
    Well it's just a theory at the moment, if I look at Packer's catches:

    a dive to the left with hand outstretched sees a superb catch from Packer in the slips.

    Pitched up and swatted out towards the legside boundary, a great catch on the ropes denies him 6.

    smacked the ball straight into the groin of Packer who fell over, miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!



    I think that's the third 'scrotal area' catch Packer has had already, don't think any of the others have taken any. Also I haven't ever noticed a 'dropped catch' commentary, so there must be some checks going on inside the mechanics of the game and if the catch 'fails' you get something like this:

    Fabulous catch on the boundary…but the umpire's signalled six!! Noble put his foot over the boundary to take the catch!

    Which if they had better 'luck' or better fielding might have been:

    Pitched up and swatted out towards the legside boundary, a great catch on the ropes denies him 6.


    I would also guess that a higher keeping value would take more strangled down the legside dismissals, as I say I've not seen any 'drop' commentaries, so they must purely generate more catches from somewhere - along with less byes, but there aren't many of those to begin with.

    Yeah, never seen dropped catches in the commentary either. Though I don't think they would serve any purpose; from what I gather, the outcome is generated (0,1,2,3,4,6,W etc.) then a random bit of commentary matching the outcome is provided.

    I haven't used any fielding training so far, but I think I will soon as they seem to develop secondary skills at a very rapid rate. At the moment my squad is strong in primaries but relatively weak in secondaries, which I think will stuff me up in the FC matches.

    Yea, I have 5 Psychologists... total cost 7.5k a week, 10 coaches... total cost 25k a week. I get more secondary skill pops than primary skill pops.

    Same, just that I've been buying players with high primaries and low secondaries, so the secondaries haven't caught up yet. 1 fielding coach + 1 batting coach and 5 psychologists supposedly results in a conc pop every 3 weeks and cons every 4 weeks, which is a fair bit better than what I get on 2 batting coaches. Fielding pops as well, obviously.

    Just got this guy for 31k...

    Shame he's defensive (I'm experimenting setting defensive/cautious batsmen as very aggressive to see if it cancels out their natural style) and a Saffie, but can't have everything.
