    How do you mean?

    Will every player who plays FC be automatically upgraded to competent secondaries?

    Well, for one, it depends what division you're in. If you're in Div 5, feeble would probably be a decent starting point for a team, while in Div 1, a player with competent secondaries may find himself getting out for about 50, or copping a bit of stick. And, it depends what kind of player he is.. if he's a number 6 or 7 batsman, he doesn't really require his concentration to be super high. And, also, a player with less-than standard secondaries can still perform well, he just may, like I said, hit a 50 or so and get out, or a bowler may end up taking something like 3/50 off 10 overs-- they get carted around a bit, but still take wickets

    ffs...

    Just keep ignoring everything said...

    Don't worry, I'm sure if you have competent you will 100% absolutely be VERY successful! No doubt! Because you've reached the hallowed minimum!!

    What? So you think the difference between being successful and very successful is something as simple as having competent secondaries?...

    Haha. I can't really be bothered explaining why it's a rubbish theory, it just is. Maybe for an individual player to be highly successful they will need a competent+ secondary, but as far as teams go there's no need to have everyone at that level to be successful.

    I'm certainly hoping that's not the case, because I thought I had a team with fairly good secondaries, yet mine aren't close to the "golden position"

    I hope med-med type batsmen can do okayish... I'll have at least 4 of that sort of skill, some of them bowlers.
