    Second season of Battrick completed for my team. A brief season summary

    FC: 2nd

    I was the clear second best team in this league. Used the season to tinker with lineups and tactics. Promotion out of this league will definitely be achievable next season depending on who gets demoted.

    OD: 4th

    My first season in Div 5 was a relative success. I was given a large beating on a couple of occasions, but more than matched it with most of the human run teams in this league. Had a couple of terrific contests, and my better players really shone through in the tight situations.

    T20: 5th

    Much like my first class league, did not place a large focus on T20. Rested many of my key players, and largely just played around with aggression settings for the season.

    My best player:

    Marc Baholo - 18 yo, BT Rating=36,201
    LH Batsman, LM Bowler. He is a destructive player with worthless leadership skills and abysmal experience.
    He currently has proficient batting form, superb bowling form and energetic fitness.

    Stamina: superb Wicket Keeping: worthless
    Batting: abysmal Concentration: strong
    Bowling: strong Consistency: strong
    Fielding: strong

    Will drop him to 1 bowling net next season, and keep him like that well into the future. Terrific bowler to have, his destructive aggression means he can really blow some teams away if given a chance.

    Next season will see 1 new trainee added to the mix, a batsman. I will soon be in a position to start buying in better players to pad out my squad. Currently sitting on 1,558K, so nearly reached the the magic 1,600K mark.

    Batstats rating has improved. Final game for this season stood at 84, compared to final game for last season of 74. Overall a good season, I set my expectations low at the start of the season. Was always going to be a transitional season whilst I earnt the required money, and waited for some of my trainee's to really come along.

    Strongly DWTA. Given that he's your best player and you're starting up, it's best to get one or two guns that you can build your team around. I'd have him on 2 bowling + 1 fielding definitely for all of next season and probably the one after that too tbh.

    Cheers for the advice, I will tinker with my training plan to try and implement this.

    Dhindsa, Gleeson, or Knowles IMO. Selling Henshaw will only be a short term solution IMO. Get your wages under control, and you may get your team back on track.

    Let's do it!

    I'm thinking that I'll need to win my Div 3s next season to really make maximum use of Bhutia, Holdsworth and Mulholland (26, 24 and 25 respectively) before they get too old to sell. They're at their peak and I have enough youth coming through so that I don't need to worry about it. Not to mention their wages. Here's that crazy little format we used to do, haven't seen it for a while:

    Code:
    Player      Age BTR    Batting     Bowling      WK 
    Shaw        23  87583  exquisite                
    Whitehouse  21  74376  sensational                   
    Bhutia      26  128152 masterful
    Holdsworth  24  221297 exquisite   exquisite
    Thabo       19  35542  remarkable
    Allott      20  52440  strong	   wonderful
    Jahanzeb    18  19987  superb			superb
    Houlihan    31  3008   competent  
    Busby       22  92116  worthless   exquisite
    Appleyard   21  71003  worthless   exceptional
    Mulholland  25  88831  worthless   masterful
    Average BTR of 79485 and average age of 22.7. Couple of pops imminent but that's it at the moment. Would probably be more advantageous to have 4-5 sensationals rather than my 3 exquisite+'s but oh well. Wages are pretty intense.

    I'm up for a friendly too, preferably against someone who won't kill me! The joy of winning FC has been tempered by the team below me losing to a team who hadn't won a match in OD meaning I stay in Div IV. Need a morale-boosting close match before the inevitable hidings start.

    I've been on BT for a few months now, and I've gone for the two trainees method. One batsman, and a bowler. They're fairly good, but the rest of my team really is bollocks.
