    Yep. Only been playing since middle of last year though.

    Stumped's server company managed to delete their website for those wondering why you haven't been able to get on their site.

    Major ****-up by the hosting company, hundreds of sites affected.
    England is a populated nation (unlike SA), how have you been doing? Any prodigious talents you sold for millions?

    Nah I got one good youth when I started, a 17/16/15 bat/Opener. He's 13+ across the board. Had to buy my way to a decent squad. Hit 54k/55k and lots of low 40s potential youths.

    The reset is going to **** me over, not sure how much. The host is useless but they should have backed everything up at the end of season 9 at least.

    55K rating sounds like you coming from Battrick/FTP?
    I was in div1 in all three formats before the crash, not so sure about it with 2 months re-roll back.
    Feel free to challenge my (eponymous) team, always ready to lose a game due to multiple run-outs or my best bowler's atrocious performance in conditions most suited to his skills (:

    Lost my transfers on a keeper, batsman, 2 youth bats. But none of them were massive upgrades/bargains particularly.

    Still in pretty much the same divisions. Main thing is I got my nasty combo seamer just before the first server balls up.

    I lost 5 young guys who were supposed to became the core of my dev squad. Also lost one promotion. Not to mention the coaching, some of my bowlers are starting season 10 with -3 skills compared to before the crash

    There are 451 human managers at the moment. Not sure what sparked this influx but pleased ofc.

    My season is doing down the drain as only now my losses in the crash start to make serious impact

    So I've resumed playing and this game is so much fun.

    And what's really appealing atm is that there are so few human managers, so you've got this close-knit, competitive scene where it doesn't take a lot of time to build a top-level side.

    Stuck in Div 2 this season for OD and Dev due to being inactive for basically 90% of the previous season, so time now to climb back up, rebuild my side, and kick some ass.

    So been going pretty well. Back in Div 1 in all 3 forms and holding my own. Grooming some great talent, and got a strong core of players. Really lacking depth in certain areas tho. Too reliant on my allrounder, could use another really good batsman who can bowl, and my team's fielding overall is bleh.

    No app

    It's a very small game. It's part of the charm. Makes for great rivalries, makes it easier to follow Nat matches since it's not hard to keep track of all the players and managers, makes following the cup easy and also makes it easy for new teams to show up and climb to the top as well.
