International Cricket Captain General Thread of Miscellany

Can't even buy a win in FC, playing for Guyana.

I've got a decent pace bowling reserve. My batters are susceptible to the balls that are directed at the stumps. Footwork is non-existent.

I need help with training.

T20s can suck a dick. Can't win them at all.
you need to play limited overs ball by ball, rather than over by over and reign in your batsmans aggression if/when they hit boundaries early in the over.

bowling, with seamers i go full and outside off with a packed offside field, 1 slip and a short leg (because they're so gun in icc).

spinners i have never been able to make consistently effective in short forms. i've tried bowling straighter to bring lbw and bowled more into play and spreading the field but they just don't seem to have the same impact that seamers do on this game in 50 and 20 overs.

Yeah, plus the addition of every single international player ever makes this game arguably the biggest upgrade they've ever done.

Who knows, one day they might even revamp their in-game graphics.

all i want is for all the regions to sim alongside each other at domestic level.

otherwise the nation you work out of domestically always becomes overpowered due to the superior nature of their regens.

Should go back to the 2005 graphics tbh. The highlights do nothing for me.

Yeah it might be nostalgica talking, but the older interface looked a lot better in my mind.
Not just nostalgia imo, the interface these days is big, with chunky buttons that clutter the screen. I really only bought the game for the sim league, i could see myself getting irritated with the UI if I was actually playing the game.

Annoying tendency since 2014 (?) where you can't skip the highlight until bowler lets go of the ball. Yeah, yeah, I know, turn highlights off but I do wanna see something sometimes.

Is this still year #2, Shri?

The RSA team looks to already be filled with regens. I've read on the CC database feedback thread that the database loses almost all of its relevancy very quickly.

Mah, different save. 2022 I think.
