Is there going to be a change to stats so the players are ranked out of 20 or 25. Or are still going with stupid out of 100 ratings?
J Chavez to be in high demand imo.
With the announcment of the Dynamo/Stallions Merger complete the order for drafting has been released below.

Oh yeah are you using any retirement sim for these older players. I can't remember if there is one in sim or we used an external one we used in EFM.
Hm. I see you have acquired Bjørn Berland's ten year younger brother. :ph34r:
Aiming for Fan or Parlour in the first round. Need someone experienced to shore up the back four.
All players, CW and otherwise go through an updater at the end of the season.

With regards to the old players on last seasons squads, if they declined into uselessness (is that a word?) then I retired them.
The 'stupid' ratings out of 100 will be kept. Looking into a number of different leagues the 100 rating is the common method.

So to address this, all players have been progressed and then their skills halved (all fractions rounded up).
So a player that had 40 tk, 13 pass and 9 st now has 20 tk, 7 pass, 5 st.
It should make for more realistic scorelines. Also, all aggression has been capped at 50 and attribute bonuses from games been adjusted to stop rapid points advancement.
Total skill points per team entering the pre-season for each 17 man squad before rookies and draft.
I think you will find most leagues start off at 20 or 25 and then as players improve past or near the max they increase to 100. Most of leagues I've played (only a handful) usually have that policy. But if the stats are closer together then I guess it doesn't matter a great deal. Problem we had last season was that 20-30 players were coming up against players double their ability. Even in a league rated out of 20, if you had players with 8 and another with 16 the same thing would happen.
Pre-season schedule announced
To help assess talent in the draft there will be 4 games in which the trialists will play.
Red Trialists vs Green Trialists
CW U'19s vs Red Trialists
Green Trialists vs CW U'19s
Green Trialists vs Red Trialists
CW Under 19s Squad Announced
A 16 man squad has been selected to play 2 exhibition games against the Draft trialists.
(all U19 players were put on a roster and a program was used to select what it believed to be the best 16 man squad. No human selection was used)
CW Under 19's
I reckon a human might have been used to put together the program TBH. So when is these matches to be played/posted?
