    AAAAAAAARRRGGGHH!!

    Changed my line-up and forgot to set orders. And this after a good start in Div IV last week with a win over a team I couldn't get close to in my last attempt on Div IV.

    Currently have a batsman bowling...my very good all-rounder won't get to roll his arm over...not even worth watching.

    Does anyone know how the team rating work in this?

    Was ranked 500th in Australia just over a week ago, then beat the 121st ranked team in OD, knocked over a nuffy in FC, and beat a team ranked around 500 in OD this week. Am now ranked 745th Assume it has something to do with going back down to a lower division in FC, which seems to be weighted a little too heavily over actually beating higher ranked teams in OD.

    Have started OD Div IV well this season with 2 wins from two games. Is a marked improvement from 3 seasons ago when I couldn't really compete. Need to train up some new guys to take the place of some of my better player though...wish Battrick would let you train up more than a couple.

    It has to do with your leagues, not the strength of your team or who you beat. Im 2nd in Bangladesh even though ive lost one match since being here.

    Ahhh, ok. I'd say dropping down a league in FC has something to do with it then.

    Still, it's funny being able to beat the 120-odd ranked team (that's twice now) and still be ranked 700. It's impossible to play your full-strength team all the time without them passing out from exhaustion (and starting to lose a lot).

    Ever wanted to try starting from scratch? Ever thought you could do it better a second time around? Starting from midway through next season, members will have the option to start a franchise to try just that.

    A franchise will be another team that is directly linked to your main team but runs independently. The franchise will have its own set of players, income, members, nets, etc and effectively run as a separate team. You will not be allowed to trade between the two teams, they must run totally independently.

    This option to create a franchise will be available to all members midway through the new season. A link will be available under the Pavilion to create the franchise. Non-members will not get this option, including during the free period of trial membership. If the franchise goes bankrupt, it will close and you will not be allowed to start a new franchise until the following season. If the main team goes bankrupt, the franchise will be lost as well.

    There are a few additional rules for franchises:

    • It must be in another country from the main team
    • It will not convey any voting privileges in that country for elections
    • The main team will not be allowed to emigrate to that country
    • The main team must maintain membership to keep the franchise. If membership runs out and is not resumed within 4 weeks, the franchise will be lost.


    Please join us on this thread to discuss.
    Tharrrr ye goooooo.

    Really cant be bothered signing up for membership, barely pay attention to it. Also about to go bankrupt, so might just ignore the game completely.

    Will do it if FTP brings it in though.
