No, not a sequel to the game itself, but a sequel to the original FTP thread since the other one has been archived.

Well if we're going to have a new thread let's lay down the ground rules

1. You will all worship Marc Bruin

2. If for any reason you don't like Marc Bruin, see Rule 1

  :P

Post by: Hellopplz on December 16, 2014, 08:39:54 PM
Bruin is great and all, but he's no Harrison Morgan ;).

My T20 is looking to be a sweet end. Managed 97 on a Crumbler and may be able to bowl out my opponent for under it (or they may chase it down in the last 3 overs). And the loser is in danger of relegating while winner is possibly going to finish 4th :o.

Lost by 2 wickets in the battle for $75k (2nd and 3rd in Div 1). Zahra took 6/12 though! o_O

I lost my last game, rested up in preparation for the final SOD game to try and promote. Nearly pulled off a 20k upset, losing on the last ball of the match, however the team on top of me suffered a surprise loss and if I had played full strength and won by enough I would've promoted...I'll be mad if I don't promote in SOD.. :P

Zahra has a huge game :o :o :o. And bad luck Alex, lets hope get the promotion in OD to make up for it :P.

Zahra wasn't actually good enough Granted he went from 4th to 2nd for wickets taken in T20 this season, but one more and he'd have made it to the top on averages!

Would love another 6 from him this Friday, assuming i play him of course. ;) Looking like Humid/Dry right now, so I think I will play him in that case. Hot/Dry is another story.
Title: Re: From The Pavilion II
Post by: Hellopplz on December 16, 2014, 10:27:29 PM
Still quite a jump up the ranks for wickets taken! So close yet so far.

Reminds me to do my youth orders tonight as out tomorrow. Survived in YOD 2.2 but can't promote as the team top of all my leagues is the same. Got to hand it to him, promoting to Div 1 Youths and winning Division 1 SOD and T20 titles all in the same season :o.
Title: Re: From The Pavilion II

I wonder if anyone has ever won all three Div 1 titles in the same season?
Title: Re: From The Pavilion II
Post by: Hellopplz on December 17, 2014, 06:58:11 PM
Mumbling would be going for that next season, although I want to end his hold over one of the leagues. Think it's Scotland Div 1.1 where he's won like 7 seasons in a row (Or it's the T20 one) :o :o :o.

Reckon somebody has through all the season, but would have to go check every country to see.

So my last ever youth match (league) with my squad of big cats was a resounding success. Won by 268 runs after scoring 6 for 365 on an uneven deck, Tiger top scoring with 164. Then bowled them out 30.5 overs for 97, Puma best figures of 4 for 16.

Compared to your side his is poorly thought out. He has thousands of mediums and wicket keepers and not many players with suitable talents. Plus he has a complete lack of strike bowlers

Well he bought a hell of a lot more players than me. Plus I was just outbidding him on the strike bowlers initially haha! The only thing I'm missing from my squad is a wristy, but sadly there weren't any on sale when I was buying my players :(

The game has started for those interested in watching it...

Yeah it's great with my batters, if Tiger doesn't play well then Cheetah steps up and vice versa. Does help that they are both 3 quarters of the way to spec/spec haha!

I reckon he was just playing his strongest squad to get the highest ratings possible. Shame I still beat him haha :D

Looks like Dravy is rebuilding, so that means I'll only need to beat 1 other player to stay up this season. So far I've finished 6th, 7th, 6th, 6th in my four seasons, not relegating the 2nd time because a team went bot above me :D

Both SOD and T20 should be pretty good this season. Multiple bots in both leagues already. Going to be a dogfight to stay in YOD Div 3 for the 3rd season in a row though. No Troopa, only 2 19yo's in my squad and its incredibly weak overall. In desperate need of 2 Youth batsmen to fill one opening role and #6, so if anyone has anyone on the market let me know. Also looking for a SOD Seamer between the ages of 23-25.

Troopa graduates from my Youth Academy with 57 wickets @ 17 and 1025 runs @ 46.5. Hopefully he can have a good world cup to cap off a great Youth career before I start grooming him into my permanent #7. Not bad for someone who was pulled 5 weeks into the season at 17! Certainly my best ever pull.

Am looking for a few friendlies this week to test some starts for the new season and PC. As well as 1 Youth friendly later in the week. If anyones interested more than happy. More than happy to get smashed. :)

Mate he is not a number 7! If he is 7 then your batting lineup is incredibly weak. He's an 8 at best and even that is stretching it a little. You need to get a proper AR in your squad to bat 7.

Can understand wanting to play with 5 pure bowlers in a T20 since you shouldn't have to rely on a number 7 then, but in a OD surely you need a proper AR. My number 8 has got accomplished batting!

Yeah but I'm in Div 1 and doing that, Koop is Div 4 :P Turns out I only did it in OD 4 times last season, it's been more in previous seasons though, I've been lacking a good AR for a while now.

Think we can safely say though is the fact that you were playing two exceptional rated bowlers was the only reason you won. Together they combined for 5 of your 8 wickets and 59 runs! If you're going the young team route, why do you have those 2 in the team?

Think we can safely say though is the fact that you were playing two exceptional rated bowlers was the only reason you won. Together they combined for 5 of your 8 wickets and 59 runs! If you're going the young team route, why do you have those 2 in the team?
St-Pierre will be listed shortly. Weidman I'm a little hesitant about selling
Thank flower I will never see Weidman again. :P

Yeah thats a lot of bots, I'd play your potentially good juniors like jolly especially every time you play a bot throw a few (good young) youths in your line up to get extra experience, while still making sure you win by a big margin to be on top your league in for/against.

Wouldn't say he easily outrated him, only 6k, which is nothing really. Wouldn't say it was so unlucky either. He played 3 spinners in humid/uneven conditions, which is never going to go well for you. Poor tactics is what lost you the game, so shouldn't be speechless with the result.
Title: Re: From The Pavilion II
Post by: PowerBug on January 07, 2015, 06:09:16 PM
Koop's only got 12 youths, so wouldn't have the bowling options to play more seam. I also think he got unlucky having to bat first. Humid conditions and in YOD, it's tough to defend those. (In saying that, the game I'm currently playing I won the toss on Humid/Slow and elected to bat :P)

Manager that has enjoyed literally no success blames WC winning manager for the nations failures... :P
Thing is, we demoted from Div 1 to Div 3 under HPs tenure and wouldn't have qualified under the current system.  :P

 We had a much better squad back then too....several Elite bowlers.  ::)

I'm happy at Scotland! Even if Torpy blames me for ruining Seniors long after my tenure.
I blame the U19s during your tenure and my first tenure (Looking at cookie).
We still managed to qualify for the World Cup and make it out of the group stages, even though we were the weakest. The worst thing that happened to you was that someone beat me in the elections and then went awol. Doug and I had gotten a good group of players coming through that went to waste

is this the worst over you have ever seen bowled? worst for me for YOD

S. Weiss (rm) 4-0-57-1, H. Spofforth 17 (7b), M. Dolling 14 (9b)
End of over 39 (27 runs) - Devil's Angels United(220-8). 47 runs required from 1 overs. RR 5.64 RRR 47.00
38.6  2Weiss to Dolling : Lovely on-drive from Dolling which beats the infield. The sweeper comes around and keeps it to 2.
38.5 1Weiss to Spofforth : Tapped away, the batsmen take a quick single.
38.4 6Weiss to Spofforth : That's a good example of how to take a catch, but unfortunately for the bowling team, a member of the crowd was the one taking it - SIX into the crowd.
38.4 nb6Weiss to Spofforth : That's a good example of how to take a catch, but unfortunately for the bowling team, a member of the crowd was the one taking it - SIX into the crowd.
38.4 nb1Weiss to Dolling : Short ball and hooked straight to the man in the deep. Good fielding keeps the batsmen down to just a single.
38.3 4Weiss to Dolling : Good shot, Dolling cashing in on a fractionally overpitched delivery and square-driving for four, on the up.
38.3 nb2Weiss to Dolling : Pitched short of length, Dolling got bat on that and the batsmen will run 2.
38.2 2Weiss to Dolling : Well played down the ground, Perumal coming round to collect it but some good running pushes him and the batsmen scamper home for 2, great running!
38.1.Weiss to Dolling : [great fielding] A good diving stop by Kroger at square leg prevents any runs and keeps the pressure on Dolling.

Yeah that over would suck :( I hit a 26 run over earlier this season, 27 though ;)



Also, I think Koop takes the crown over Torp for the person that manages to forget to set orders the most.

Set a club record for highest opening partnership last night :)

Playing on a flat and bowled first, restricting them to 6 for 293 from their 50 overs. Then chased that down without losing a wicket in 42.4 overs to win by 10 wickets!! Cheetah with 141 from 130, and Tiger 135 from 130. Tiger given MOTM I'm assuming because he scored more runs during the start and middle, whereas Cheetah just slogged it at the end.

    Rage    Billy Goats CC
Batting - Top Order    10,181    10,321
Batting - Middle Order    9,390    9,213
Batting - Tail    3,961    4,542
Bowling - Seam    9,930 (40)    8,926 (40)
Bowling - Spin    3,723 (10)    9,450 (10)
Fielding/Keeping    8,118    10,330
Overall    157,967    167,909

On a flat I know, but still pretty impressive not to lose a wicket, considering he only rated less than me due to an extremely poor spinner!

nah not a community thing
mahmoud a good AR
but as a straight out bowler yaseen kills him

mahmoud is spec bowl and spec tech
yaseen is excep/excep

ultimately it was EB's call i have never pushed to ever include one of my own players even when i was manager

i think he just wanted a extra strong spinner to take and simply went on the better bowler

End of over 20 (maiden) - DazBurg's Greatness(123-7) RR 6.15

Just a casual triple wicket maiden in the 20th over for Jagwar Ma against Daz. The 20 year old that I played to replace Roberts ended up tossing in arguably the best bowling performance, but a bunch of byes and some dropped catches mean this chase will be 50/50 on a cloudy/sticky IMO.

Need to redeem myself against Daz. :P

Harrison grabbed one in the next over (another was dropped straight after) but the boundaries keep on flowing so pretty much gone now.

And looked at my records last night as remembered what you said. Not too many have been cracked in the last year but got a few in there! Also noticed 6/10 of my best bowling performances were shared by Harrison (twice has had 6 wickets) and Dexter Morgan!

Must run in the family. ;) They do very slowly seem to come in these days, and I've noticed in the last season or so they will get close to the records, but it just isn't possible to quite top the older ones.

Looking at the ratings, not much to boast about. Surprised I actually rated so much with 3 guys gone. Survived 1 tour week and I'm still 5-0 in T20, have some recovering to do to put myself in a position I can promote from in OD but after the train wreck start I'll take it.

And yeah, these days I'm stoked to see anybody get past 50, where as once upon a time I'd be frustrated at guys only getting 50. Hopefully I can catch you in D1 soon enough. ;)

Nah had it as uneven last week because I had a bunch of younger guys playing against a weaker SOD opponent and I wanted the batsmen to have an easier time of it.
I have customarily played on a sticky for the last 5-6 seasons.

fair enough ;)

reckon you'll catch me in OD quickly i really dunno how long i can sustain the streak
though 20/20 looking lost i may rest more in that now to focus on OD

If you win against BP in a couple of weeks time you'll be in a great position with (probably) a 2 game lead on top. I think it'll end up being you or BP (or me if I get my sh*t together) that will win SOD.
You should still easily get PM in T20 as well, finish top 3 or so, hopefully nobody can knock me off my perch though. :P

"Think all 3 games so far our tail has saved us, maybe we should switch our batting order around :)"

You'll be alright, he's only a FS so he's expendable (as expendable as Bruin could ever be :P).
I still rate you as a pretty big promotion threat either way, even without him you'll have a ratings gap on just about everyone, plus I'll have Roberts (wc/wc fs) touring pretty regularly and being replaced by a 20 y.o, as well as other players who might disappear, and Daz has Yaseen who will tour.

I'm trying to get to Rd 6 (Final 64) for the first time in the Pav Cup.

V. Gomes (lm) 2-0-8-0, G. Bevan 16 (25b), H. Alleyne 41 (35b)
End of over 10 (6 runs) - Yardley Massive(57-0) RR 5.70

Sunny/Hard. I've got 1f, 1fm, 1m, 2fs against 1f, 3fm, 1ws. Probably the only time I'm less suited to the conditions than my opponent. Way I see it though is Hard basically = Flat. So three defensive bowlers I just want to keep the runs down. Zahra couldn't grab a wicket in his opening 5, going 0/38 (Aggro). Hope the platform doesn't set them into scoring 350+ here, I haven't got the best batting lineup in history.

Hard and Flat are the same when combined with Sunny weather. Hard/Humid or Hard/Overcast and suddenly we can see much lower scores defended.

I had to play Guarnere seeing as he was with the USA all week. My only other fm played Friday and I'll be using him on Tuesday so didn't really want to use him. Paul John can bat a little and will be gone once I lose PC, so I play him.


P. John (lfs) 6-0-20-1, G. Bevan 61 (83b), C. Shariki 17 (23b)
End of over 27 (3 runs) - Yardley Massive(141-1) RR 5.22

So far though, the bowling has been really good. I feel like Guarnere's 4 over aggro spell might be a game maker though, will it be 0/40 or 2/20.

Regardless of weather I would not want to be chasing over 250 on a hard, it starts to get quite uncomfortable. Chasing on a hard (unlike a flat) is a flowering death mission.

Didn't get on to set orders against Torp after sending him a challenge this morning, why did you play such a weak side Torpy? :S

Wow really? I just remember the time pyronerd chased down 370 against me on a Hard/Cloudy. That was uncomfortable. :P

Turns out I'm going to lose anyway. His passable fatigued ws got two wickets, both stumped by the energetic fatigued keeper who also made 95*. Both players have had the tired symbol come up. So yeah, I'm not mad one bit about failing in the 5th round for the fourth time :)

Yeah, god knows you've had more success with orders/winning stuff/paid more attention to it than I ever have or will but I would always bat first on a hard and bowl first on a flat.

Can't always fall your way, 5th round is a huge bonus.
Title: Re: From The Pavilion II

Fair enough, I'll see what Shaggy says too. Still sad about that loss, but I probably didn't deserve to get through anyway. Always next season I guess.


But today I'm going to have some fun. A year ago I tried to get the highest possible total chased down. Main vs Affiliate, and I managed to get 457 chased down with ease. Well now both teams have much stronger batting lineups, so I am hoping to crack the 500 mark today with my affiliate, and then see it get destroyed by Aronstam, Wardlaw and Herring.

Well he has been around forever really. I started at the end of Season 13, I bought him Day 1 of Season 14. Has been at number 2 basically every match since.

I also am selling Paul John and Adrian Zahra tomorrow night. That's 289 OD wickets for my club right there. They are all playing their final match this Friday, at home.

I'm slowly realising that the "originals" that I owned are slowly disappearing from my squad. Tonge, Mukund, Butt all gone recently, Dorengama I finally "retired" last week. Two more originals go this week. There's not many left.

Don't worry I'm the same, I have a pretty low turnover on players so I tend to get attached to them. I don't think it's weird. :P A lot of the guys I have at the moment I will end up retiring instead of making whatever money I can off them when I'm eventually done with them.

Letting go of Bartowski and Woodcomb (4th and 1st buys respectively I think) when I went on hiatus was a horribly shower feeling.

Yeah it's definitely pretty standard to get that attachment, I've **only** had Billy Gent for 8 seasons or so, which has been 830-something days (I just checked and have already forgotten, hic), almost two and a half years. Wardlaw would be even longer, you've had him since you started basically which (IIRC) was around the same time as me, in 2010, so you've probably spent about 4 years with him.

general observation / question.

is form in the game a complete random element?

this player goes down in form 3 weeks in a row to now poor form, these are his last two innings responsible for his dropping form i guess?

30 Jan 2015   One Day 3.4   DodgeyOnes v Unleash my Hewrath   88* (90)      
27 Jan 2015   Twenty20 4.1   Punjabi CC v DodgeyOnes   128* (68)      1c 1ro

the two before were non events, he didnt bat much but he didn't get out time either

23 Jan 2015   One Day 3.4   DrinkFeckArseGirls v DodgeyOnes   0* (0)      
16 Jan 2015   One Day 3.4   DodgeyOnes v The Lochies   5* (3)

Form used to be part random part how many games a player played (ie you could 'play them into form').
As far as I know, the games played element was removed and now it is total RNG. Could be wrong.

All I know is it farks me every season.

Yep form is completely random, and is reset at the start of every season before it fluctuates.

Although, it doesn't mean a player can't perform well as you can see. But such a shame it can't influence the form for the following week when they are actually doing well in the games ::).

yup i agree PB
was so hard to me to retire Ritula at the start of this season (and i bought him at 20 let alone a youth pull)....over 8k OD runs not bad for 23k

i got a few getting close who i have had since youths too
Abbas is 31 who i bought at 16
salim is 30 atm and i've had him since i pulled him
so it is going to get tougher for myself

you should be able to work out how much sponsorship you get etc and how much it costs for those reasonable and roughly see how much profit you'll make......if worse comes to worse might need to drop one right down and run 1 while gaining money back....

I'm projected to lose $4,000 this week, but I'm selling a guy, who's wage is $2,000 and hoping to get some more money as well. It also doesn't consider gate takings, so hopefully I can get some well out crowds this week.

managed to have one with a solid senior squad one with a rebuilt senior squad and both with 23 youths.

both have excellent senior academy one has luxurious youth academy and the other superior.

i go into debt most weeks but i get out of debt most weeks too....

as i said im still learning but i am managing to make some inroads.

Now to reply. You spend $130k on senior wages for a team in Div 4. Now I reckon you can cut that wage bill by about $50k, and still promote this season. If you can reveal your skills of players that would be great, but from what I see:
- The player you are trying to sell won't sell. Reasonable tech is not good. You want players with batting (or bowling) and tech the same
- You have wayyyyyy too many old guys, who would not be worth the wages you spend on them. From 30 and onwards skills start declining, you may have noticed this, those 32yo's will be dropping quickly and the wage you pay them is not the return you get from them.
- What needs to happen is all your top waged players need to go, everyone with a wage in 5 digits. As it's a requirement to have 12 seniors on your list, selling them all off might take a while, you will need to make purchases in return.
- In return the top lot of players you should buy, can look something like this guy (http://www.fromthepavilion.org/player.htm?playerId=1064699). Now you won't be able to buy him specifically as you have no money, but look for a few players like him from next week.


You fell for a very common mistake that lots of new managers do, so don't feel bad. But the beauty of the game is you can rectify it.

So Nrich for what help i can suggest....

I'm still learning, but after making all the wrong moves when i started, then asking tons of questions I have managed to compete at my div level, run youth farm type youth squads and prote to div3 in seniors one team each club, and have 15k ground capacities and both academies in both clubs pretty high, and not go broke. So ive worked a few things out.

PB is right of course. but even if you sell off all your old players on high wages you cant afford 14 players as good as what PB linked to above.

I would look at 20yo with accom/accom bat or bowl and tech. reas fielding minimum and avg exp minimum, should be 3k-4k wages.

Best time to buy them is a week after the end of season after the crazy people pay too much for the ones they need there is a big surplus of them available at that level. wait too many weeks into the season and any for sale start to get dearer again.

I kept two promoted from my youth squad this season and two other decent 22 and 24 year olds on low wages and bought 10 of these guys between 44k and 34k all up cost me about 60k to buy the lot.

wont compete this season but i will next season and still sitting in mid table in div4 league, tho cant compete in my div3 league.

but my senior academy is excelent so these guys will improve pretty quick and in a season or two i should promote back into div3 and as they age they will all be great players because i got them at the level they are supposed to be at the age i got them.

so i would do exactly what PB said, if you can start now, buy a 20yo like i said above, and sell the highest wage player you have, and repeat until your entire team is 20yo. and on a wage under 4k.

you'll start making money and as you so upgrade your senior academy as far as you can afford.

make sure your ground has enough seats for the crowds you draw, not too many more thats wasted money, but if you are filling it increase it, and if you increase it the fee is big regardless of the seats you add so add more rather than less.

another thing is your youth academy is not high enough to do much good at this point, so those two 16 yo you have over 20k sell them. they wont become senior keepers or gun youths in a reas academy i dont think so if you can get good money for them to help fix your senior situation do it.

you can always turn your attention to youths later. as it is a fun part of the game i find, but hard to do both , which i attempt to do.

same goes for any 16yo gun youths you pull, sell them. and if need be until you are financially well off, even downgrade the youth academy further.

both my teams go into and out of debt each week, i still have a few old seniors to sell from my main which i will this season, but i am balancing the books with both clubs.

one has the rebuilt senior team as i suggest you do, and the other has an older higher wage senior team, but neither at my level has a player over 10k in wages.

both have excellent senior academies and main has luxurious youth academy and affiliate has superior youth academy.

the key is gate takings and sponsorship so you want to compete to get thse both up but in div 4 as PB said you can compete with all your players under 10k wages.

i will compete with all my players under 6k wages next season because they are well rounded players with talents that boost them, and it is only div4.

both my teams are revealed so you can see the different senior squads. if you want to.

Colliwobblers: http://www.fromthepavilion.org/club.htm?teamId=6094

DodgeyOnes: http://www.fromthepavilion.org/club.htm?teamId=4202

keeping in mind i made a lot of bad purchases in my first season and sacked a lot and sold a lot cheaper than i bougth them for, i learned and i have also found you can make a fair bit of money buying players with spare ratings that are maybe rel/rel and selling them after a couple of months training at acom/acom for a big profit. also older players exp/exp doesnt look as good outstanding/outstanding, and 47k rating doesnt look as good as 50k so you can make good money buying and selling players over the short term. doesnt work as well if at all for youths, they are never worth as much as they are the day you pull them (generally speaking)

Thanks guys. I've revealed the skills to all the players in my senior squad, so take a look at them.

Will look into guys around the 20 you mark, after I get out of debt. Also I want to upgrade my stadium to 7500 seats, but I'll need to get that money first.
Title: Re: From The Pavilion II
Post by: Colliwobblers on February 04, 2015, 06:07:24 PM
i'll leave it to more experienced guys to tell you who to sell first, but you have one spare player in your senior squad so i'd sell one that would put you into the black then buy a 20 yo, then do it again each week or so this season.

if you are going to rebuild which you kind of have to promoting to div3 might not be what you want this season, sure you get more experience for the players and more gate takings per seat, but you'll lose every game next season, attract less new members and lower crowds.

and get no prize money next year for either t20 or SOD.

so i would try sell off most those old guys this season, if you do it one at a time you should be able to stay 2nd or even 3rd, get good prize money still this season, stay in div4 and be competitive next season even with a rebuilt squad.

remember the 20yo you buy now are probably too dear to get what you really want, so i would just buy cheap ones, even if they are cap/cap.

sell or fire them at end of season after you buy a complete new batch at better skills and better price.

and yes stay 2nd or 3rd in both the senior leagues and you'll have more than enough money to buy a new squad. upgrade your ground and senior academy once or twice.

also get one round of pavilion cup takings early next season which may help with the ground or academy update or finishing off the squad purchases.

but those old guys aren't the old guys you want anyway even if you could afford them, but the gurus can tell you more about what each player should look like at each age. in terms of ratings and skill levels.

30yo scare me, im a builder, i like players going up not down. but one day if im going to be in div2 or 1 i know i'll need the 30+ guys to do it.


anything i said wrong, im sure i'll be corrected :)

think you will go into 4 again after the bots are dropped out of the leagues, maybe 5 if its england or aus but the smaller countries have less humans so should stay in 4

Ouch, that's gotta hurt :(. Especially with two more tour weeks to come, hopefully able to win those. I was lucky, one of my replacement bats came in and knocked 100+ to help get me over the line.

Good advice Colli, agree with what you said. For beginners or those starting over with limited budget, the level of players will certainly be different/lower than most others on here. With a new look squad of 20 y.o's next season (If say Rel/Rel to Acc/Acc), should be rating between 130-140k, which is perfectly fine for Division 4 Nrich as they are still young guys. Been helping Cicjose completely rebuild his side around some great youths he raised, so it certainly is slow progress at first, but it also helps you be able to maintain budget and improve squad slowly once you get the younger guys in to save wages.

30.5 2 W Issa to Wardlaw : [runout]  Wardlaw turned blind and is well short of his ground.
W. Wardlaw run out (D. Sands) 76 (96b 5x4 2x6) SR:79.17

I... I... I don't believe it. Wardlaw and Watson were 28 runs away from the victory target, still 19 overs to go, and that happens. Wardlaw's last ball in FTP, run out, for 76.

Dorenagama might be the name that I boast about all the time, however William Wardlaw is no doubt, my greatest ever player. Finishes with 6,902 runs @ 40.36. I bought him in Season 14, 1,312 days ago. In that time, he's played 22 Pav Cup matches, and 163 SOD matches. Which, when you convert it to 14 per season, it means that he's missed a total of 11 Friday matches, 8 of them came in one season when he was briefly pushed out of the best XI. In the other 11.5 seasons, he's missed 3 matches, that is some effort. Apart from the fault in Season 20, he has been in the top 3 run scorers for the season for my club, 11/12 times. It is a feat that will likely never be matched. It's just fitting really that my best player is a left hander from Zimbabwe, fits in nicely with my real life favourite.

33.5 3 McDonagh to Horton : Played wide of mid-on and they'll come back for 3. The players run onto the ground, hugging each other. The careers of Paul John, Adrian Zahra, and William Wardlaw have ended in a comprehensive victory. Wardlaw is lifted by two players that spent the most of the 14 seasons with him, Sadique Watson and Paul Aronstam.

J. McDonagh (rfm) 6.5-0-36-1, K. Horton 13 (11b), S. Watson 32 (49b)

The nerves seemed to have settled for the two at the crease.


6 Holland to Claxton : Claxton has hit that into the rafters. On leg stump and he picks it up and deposits it into row Z.

4 Holland to Alexander : [misfield] That's a cracking, punchy off-drive from Alexander. Really terrific timing, as he just leans into that shot and pushes it back past Holland, Otieno at mid-off dives across and can't save it, though he perhaps should have.

These two now seem really settled and look to take us home.

End of over 4 (14 runs) - Hilly's Heroics(43-2). 138 runs required from 16 overs. RR 10.75 RRR 8.62
S. Leung 2 (1b), V. Alexander 23 (12b), W. Holland (rfm) 2-0-22-1


Although we lost a wicket that over we got the run rate up to a good one.


End of over 6 (2 runs) - Hilly's Heroics(57-4). 124 runs required from 14 overs. RR 9.50 RRR 8.86
S. Leung 3 (3b), M. Stewart 1 (1b), J. Otieno (rfs) 1-0-2-2


Only 2 runs from the over but losing consecutive wickets hurts, only a couple more wickets until they can really damage us. The run rate is slowing dwon.


End of over 7 (10 runs) - Hilly's Heroics(67-4). 114 runs required from 13 overs. RR 9.57 RRR 8.77
M. Stewart 11 (7b), S. Leung 3 (3b), H. Ramage (lfm) 2-0-22-0


New all-rounder signing Matthew Stewart just doing what the team needs by this point.


End of over 9 (6 runs) - Hilly's Heroics(79-4). 102 runs required from 11 overs. RR 8.78 RRR 9.27
M. Stewart 14 (13b), S. Leung 12 (9b), A. Mahalingam (rfm) 1-0-6-0


Tight bowling and very good fielding has slowed the momentum down and put the RR under the RRR.


That is the 50 partnership (51 runs, 36b, 3x4, 2x6) SR:141.67

These two don't look like leaving the middle anytime soon.

End of over 14 (9 runs) - Hilly's Heroics(129-4). 52 runs required from 6 overs. RR 9.21 RRR 8.67
S. Leung 45 (25b), M. Stewart 31 (27b), H. Ramage (lfm) 3-0-31-0


A very good couple of overs has put us in a great position to win.


End of over 18 (11 runs) - Hilly's Heroics(162-4). 19 runs required from 2 overs. RR 9.00 RRR 9.50
M. Stewart 40 (39b), S. Leung 64 (37b), A. Mahalingam (rfm) 3-0-23-0


Anything can happen in the last couple of overs. Momentum is definitely on my side.


End of over 19 (17 runs) - Hilly's Heroics(179-4). 2 runs required from 1 overs. RR 9.42 RRR 2.00
M. Stewart 44 (40b), S. Leung 77 (42b), W. Holland (rfm) 4-0-46-1

A huge over from Matthew Stewart has put us in the best possible position to win.

2 Mahalingam to Leung : [misfield] Straight through the hands of Selvi and the batsmen pick up 2.

A misfield and there's the win! A brilliant fought out victory and some good batting got us to the win.


End of over 20 (2 runs) - Hilly's Heroics(181-4) RR 9.05
S. Leung 79 (43b), M. Stewart 44 (40b), A. Mahalingam (rfm) 3.1-0-25-0

Hilly's Heroics won by 6 wickets

Since #TheReturn, only my youth side have dropped a game.


They responded though emphatically.

End of over 30 (9 runs) - Hilly's Heroics(306-0) RR 10.20
S. Chanter 138 (84b), E. Sharkey 147 (99b), C. Thomas (lfs) 7-0-60-0


This 306 run opening stand put is in an almost unassailable position.


End of over 29 (maiden) - Rising Nepal(90-10). 329 runs required from 11 overs. RR 3.10 RRR 29.91
H. Bean 17 (31b), B. Lampe (rfm) 6.2-1-13-4

Then bowling them out for 90 and winning by 329 runs.

Pwoah, that is horrible luck from the guy. No way should have lost with 36 runs left from 10 overs, even on a slow! Nice bowling at the death by Meyer, especially for a Fasty on a slow.

That experience! Yeah I'd probably be torn between working Power or Batting. And doesn't it seem just like yesterday they were tearing it up in youths? :'(

Division 2 isn't that bad Torpy, can make a decent living there until have the squad to push for Div 1.

My tactics really are bad, close to demoting in T20 and SOD. Must win games this week, but SOD seems more likely to stay up after my win on a slow! If I can get past Cyrus my spot in Div 1 SOD stays alive :D. But I'll probably try for some help with tactics from you guys during the off-season, as half my starting XI will be over 30.

It's been down a lot lately unfortunately. The dude that runs it says he needs 3 days to fix all the issues up and hasn't had time yet. So feel free to sign up when the game is up, good time to sign up too actually, the current season is in its final two weeks.

Going to NZ is a good move, great league banter and high quality leagues. That being said, the country you play in doesn't have to be the country you support.

For example, I'm the Scot NAT manager but play in SL because they've got the best banter in FTP and a high quality of leagues. PB is Div 1 in SL and I'm Div 2.  :P

One tip if I can give you any: Do not neglect fielding. That purchase does nor neglect fielding and is at a very good level. You don't need guys with primaries (Bat/Bowl/Keep) and Technique over outstanding. I got all the way to Div 1 sticking to that rule (with about 2 exceptions).

Here's what to do:

Look at the transfer market, all players under 21. Don't spend over 10k. You can find a best 11 of 20yos in two weeks because there's always bulk at EOS for less than 50k. It'll probably promote you up to Div 4  too.

Yeah, did that last time too.

Already got a bid on one dude, but he sells tonight while I'm out at dinner so I've got an agent on him.

Also fired 4 dudes from my seniors, got exactly 12 seniors atm.

Got one pretty good youth player who's 16 and avg/avg.

Torp has it kinda right. Buy no more than 3 players between 24 and 27, and around but not over a 10k wage. That way you will get some better results quickly.

In addition, look here (http://forum.fanfooty.com.au/index.php/topic,99658.0.html).

Not totally sure what demographic you're looking at to bring into your team, but I'll be selling this guy (http://www.fromthepavilion.org/player.htm?playerId=1287689) at EOS as he won't cut the mustard for my squad. I don't think he'll go for too much as he isn't at a great age value wise, but has been trained in a way that I think he'd be immediately useful for you going through lower leagues. :)

Just don't spend more than 20k on any one guy to begin with would be my big advice. You can gradually substitute in guys that are more and more valuable, but you're better off having a spread of 11 guys that are reli/reli than 4 guys that are outs/outs and then absolute trash.

Yeah, I realised my mistake instantly and I'm already regretting it. Also misread one guy as being at a 1k starting price when he was 10k, so I flowered up pretty bad there and he's not remotely worth 10k, so I won't be getting outbid on him either.

I missed out on getting a wrist spinner earlier today, but have been on this (http://www.fromthepavilion.org/player.htm?playerId=1513461) guy for a while. I was leading bid at 3k until just now. Not sure whether I should bother chasing him or instead save my money to pursue some decent, cheap batsman which I need more than bowlers at this point, even though a wrist spinner would be nice.

If you do get them, train secondaries (Power, Endurance, fielding). And then buy guys that are 19-21 right now for the rest of the squad.

Just finished my first ODI friend against a human (who is now a bot because they seemed to of gotten banned last couple of  days? haha). Few highlights (In my opinion):

Hugh McCarthy opened and scored 77 runs.
My main boy Honest wa  Kitonga scored 76 runs coming in at 6 after my middle fell under.
And an ordin batter Denesh Bayley scored 35 off 26 balls.
Then a fair bowling stint from Olivier Blokhout who got 8-30 off 8 overs.

Ended up winning easy by just under 200 runs.

Currently sitting on Chengelpet (http://www.fromthepavilion.org/player.htm?playerId=920426), Verley (http://www.fromthepavilion.org/player.htm?playerId=1232702) and Lashley (http://www.fromthepavilion.org/player.htm?playerId=1085198).

I'm fairly certain I won't get any of them. But I figure they'd be okay at their current prices.
If you do get them, train secondaries (Power, Endurance, fielding). And then buy guys that are 19-21 right now for the rest of the squad.
Yep, that's the plan.

Some guy tried to snipe Chengelpet, so I ended up paying 8k instead of 4k. I probably should have just let him go. I'm terrible at this bidding thing.

Playing my first SOD today against a bot.

Just finished batting first and made 469/2 on a hot/green.

My cap/reli American buy Darren McCullough made 153 off 119 and one of the dudes that I had in my original squad Rocco Cuff who is ave/reas made 165 off 99 not out.

Not a bad effort straight up even if it was against a bot.

Hopefully can bowl them out quickly and easily.

Haha, just a little.  ;)

Bowled 'em all out for 51. Bertie Tossol picked up 3/10 off 5 and Kai Owens nabbed himself 3/4 off 4.1 overs. Rocco Cuff got man of the match honours. Might have to keep him.  :o

I was kidding. But he's the best of the worst, so he'll be the first to go once I get a bunch of blokes cheap to fill out my squad.

Got 3 19 year olds who'll be first team players once they're 20, so I'll be able to get rid of more of the starters.

Speaking of don't keep people based on performances, today was meant to be Tshepo Mupariwa's last match for my club...

T. Mupariwa (lm) 10-3-23-5, D. Sands 32 (93b), S. Gajanayake 5 (21b)
End of over 30 (2 runs) - Dogs of War XI(82-8). 193 runs required from 20 overs. RR 2.73 RRR 9.65

10 overs of defensive mediums gives that return. His first 5 wicket haul for my club.

Gotta earn it mate. ;) Granted this affiliate side is 4.5 seasons old, and the route I took was one very much like what I have told you and Pk to do.

Just gotta stay patient, get some crazy luck with youth pulls, and not have a trigger finger when searching the TM. (Mainly the 2nd one)

Well, I misread his price as 1k when it was actually 10k. Thinking it was 1k, I bid on him. He wasn't terrible for 1k, but definitely wasn't worth 10k. Because I bid on him while I was trigger happy, having that 10k bid on cost me a chance at a few guys who were considerably better. So yeah, I was hoping that I didn't get a guy that definitely wasn't worth what I was paying for. In the end, somebody got him for 11k.

Still working out my order as well now, got a T20 to prepare for, it's on a cloudy/slow.

Fish Warner is getting promoted to opener in hopes he's like his namesake. Chengy will be with him to be our Gilly.  8)

The new kid in Kwistel at first drop. Macca and Abdel to follow. Another new name in Van Haaren after them and Bertie rounds out the batters being dramatically demoted from opener.

Only change to the bowling line up is Kapugedera out and Seif Ishaq will play his first.

Don't worry this won't be a regular thing, just thinking out loud this one time.  :P

Was stressing a bit towards the end. But I gave Blokhout 2 overs at the end of the game on Aggressive for a reason, and it paid off! Good game Niggle.

That makes it 23 Wickets for Blokhout in the last 5 games. And that includes the 0/58 against HP. He should be proud, he didn't feel like destroying him.

You're fielders are making up for it with some crazy luck:

Don't expect the same mate, more pressure in the 2nd innings. Inways have a knack of passing checks in the field, but Maloney I'd have though would bring my level down a bit. Maybe because your keeper is of the same level he has done well?
Title: Re: From The Pavilion II
Post by: Torpedo10 on March 30, 2015, 04:46:58 PM
I know I won't but it's always nice to dream.  :P I don't think our fielding ratings will be too different.

H. Roach (rfm) 10-0-80-2, A. Simon 25 (15b), K. Bharucha 0 (0b)
End of over 50 (8 runs) - Torpedo's Titans(349-9) RR 6.98

Simon has gone from opening and averaging 15 to actually making a small difference in my past couple of friendlies and my last OD down at 8. Considering he's 22 stepping up to become a full time keeper at Div 2 level he needs to be quality!

Bowling will be a task, I rate my team on a Hard pitch and I reckon 350 will be too much for PBs bunch, especially considering they don't have the longest batting lineup.

I actually think we have a mental connection.  :o

I had the exact same thought about 20 minutes ago when staring at a bunch of my youths in my affiliate, have upgraded my SA and bidded on a few 22yo batsmen. Now I'm considering moving to NZ with my affiliate, will probably just hold in Scotland.

As you said, I'd love to keep Coupar, Irving and Christie through to retirement and hopefully pull a few more beasts.

Come to NZ! My affiliate is there and we can battle through the dredges together.
I think I will sell off most of my high value players (Aliyy, Choudhury, Suji, Azam) and put the money away for a while so that I can balance out my academies and move up through the lower leagues before making a play with the war chest.

Ideally will end up with a sustainable home-grown/buy at 16 and raise from there system.

Should be able to defend that I think Torp.
In a moment of boredom tonight I've decided to overhaul my affiliate and start using it to play the game properly (both youths and seniors).
Already excited to keep Isa and potentially see him through to retirement from a 16 year old youthie.
I actually think we have a mental connection.  :o

I had the exact same thought about 20 minutes ago when staring at a bunch of my youths in my affiliate, have upgraded my SA and bidded on a few 22yo batsmen. Now I'm considering moving to NZ with my affiliate, will probably just hold in Scotland.

As you said, I'd love to keep Coupar, Irving and Christie through to retirement and hopefully pull a few more beasts.
Come to NZ! My affiliate is there and we can battle through the dredges together.
I think I will sell off most of my high value players (Aliyy, Choudhury, Suji, Azam) and put the money away for a while so that I can balance out my academies and move up through the lower leagues before making a play with the war chest.

Ideally will end up with a sustainable home-grown/buy at 16 and raise from there system.
If someone is prepared to donate me 40 credits I would but until I win a competition that earns me those credits I can't.   :( I'd also have to move before Thursday, I'm just as likely to promote in YOD next season in Scotland.

I'll probably keep Irving, he's close to Exp/Outs and I probably wouldn't get my worth for him.

Feels like the second era of FF FTP is going to come to a close in the next few seasons.
Thithagala, Ohanga  :'( :'(

Tell me about it. He's done alright for avg/dread YP. ;) Won't get NATs because I can't find that last batting pop, and he needs Power now so I'm doing that until retirement, which will be at like 35 :P

So we have teams in NZ I see. Maybe I'll move my affiliate there and join you :o

I am excited about this batting lineup though, will get two full seasons together at least and it's full with talents (Seam Spec, Seam Spec, Accumulator, -, BH, BH) it's one that will punch above their weight.

Yeah, Pyke, Gent, and Clarke (maybe Roberts) will probably all get games 2-3 seasons into their 30s.
Clarke is shooting for 7k SOD runs for the club, Pyke going for 300 SOD wickets. If I got my act together and filled every friendly slot MPM could probably push 1000 wickets across all formats for the club.

Also sorry Torp if I could transfer the credits I have to you I would.
DO it PB. :)

D. Taylor (rfm) 6-0-35-0, F. Rasil 53 (66b), H. Fangman 35 (48b)
End of over 25 (7 runs) - PowerBugCC(130-2). 220 runs required from 25 overs. RR 5.20 RRR 8.80

Got wickets in hand which is nice, and Mahmoud has 7 overs still to bowl, but I don't have much batting left.

Ohanga is at about 960 Wickets all time, only 210 OD though.  :( He could make 300 but I reckon some of my Youthies could do better. Will Lovell is at 4.2k runs so he should hit 5k. Again Von Hoesslin is at 1k and he will be a permanent member of my best XI from next season.

Lost by 21 runs in the end. It basically confirmed what I already knew, I need another seam bowler. Roach goes 2-80 off 10, Kuhlengisa goes 3-84 off 10. Meanwhile his f and fm went for 61 and 56 (But only took 1 wicket between them).

One more seamer and I am looking fine for next season. :)

Nah gotta keep it spread. There's 2 teams in FF in SL already, make it 3 and it gives FF a chance to rule another country.  8)

So of the four FF in Div 2 NZ, My affilaite, Torp's Affiliate, Nige and Pk, only Nige and Pk are in the same YOD league. The rest all missed each other :(

Let's all put in the effort to get promoted so that we can be in the same Div 4 leagues next season!

Hey good people,
I think i overspent on this guy but it was my first big buy for my (A)team and I was after a captain. How many overs did i pay? about 130k?
Also would you train fielding up to expert and then hit batting? He is going into a Lux academy.

I'd go for the extra level (outstanding) if I was you mate. The price will be warranted if you keep him throughout his career and he'll be an extremely high level player, only expert fielding will not be high enough for the level he'll reach and you'll end up losing training time by training that fielding later.
This is of course assuming you don't need immediate results from him.
Title: Re: From The Pavilion II
Post by: auscoyote on April 09, 2015, 02:20:54 PM
Ok thanks,

I was thinking to go to halfway outs/spec as well, so like you said he is set for the future. I was going to put some batting in between though so thanks for the advice to train fielding outright. I Have already trained another decent kid up to spec fielding but it took longer than expected.

If i can afford it later in the season is it worth upgrading to Deluxe academy. I have slightly noticed the diff between Lav/Lux but it seems a lot $$$ to upgrade/maintain Dlux. Fairly sure Superior is best value for money but Lux seems pretty good atm. Just dont know if the upgrade would be worth all those extra $$$ if i could afford it.
Title: Re: From The Pavilion II
Post by: AFEV on April 09, 2015, 02:56:53 PM
Deluxe (IMHO) is only ever worth it if you have an entire squad of mostly young players that are all of high value (ie collective value >5 million) or if you have 1 player in particular that you have invested >1 million into that you need to ensure doesn't lose value being in a sub standard academy.
Of course you can run a deluxe academy without these factors, but only if there are surplus funds to shovel into it.

Stayed up later than I would've liked to land this fella: Nasser Al-Attiyah (http://www.fromthepavilion.org/player.htm?playerId=1143608)
I had to fork out a solid $850,000, that purchase only beaten by that of when I needed $1.08 million for Adrian Zahra. Now I have to work out how to train him, He is probably not first team material this season unless I train power but his wage and summaries suggest that something is close to popping (probably batting).

I now have a 28yo AR, a 24yo AR, and a 20yo AR. I'm set for a while :)

Have to say, wasn't very happy they failed to chase this, especially with the batting line-up I had, and being in this position -

End of over 29 (2 runs) - Opium Splendour(102-2). 71 runs required from 21 overs. RR 3.52 RRR 3.38
B. Gent 21 (41b), T. Swift 11 (28b), H. Roach (rfm) 5-1-9-1

One of those two wickets was Pyke who came in to pinch hit. To lose from here was pretty bad, have to say I thought I would chase 172 in humid weather and with 2 ARs.
Very impressive from you to get the win there though, can't take anything away from you.
And Daz you actually got me yesterday in the return game. Scheduled a heap of friendlies early in the season to try  some things, needless to say - not working particularly well. :P
Bowled out for 127 on a hot/slow is a pretty weak effort from a deep batting line-up. Wondering if with the batting from Relton if playing him alongside the 2 ARs is actually viable or if it will just continually trigger humongous collapses, I know the wickets in FTP come in groups, but that's serious under-performance.

Chamal has 1 OD wicket already, only 216 more to go :) Gonna be a tough one but I will be trying to fit him into the lineup as quickly as I can. I will play him in PC for the early rounds as well. I think Chamal will get more maidens though, bowling those Defensive overs at the start of every innings.

Nearly lost from here tonight.

16.4WGardiner to Lightyear : [catch] A lofted drive goes straight into the hands of mid-off. Dunne takes the catch comfortably and that's the end for Lightyear. He is quite unhappy with himself.

16.5WGardiner to Tremor Control : [catch] What was Tremor Control thinking? Either have a go, or leave it alone. A nothing shot gives the easiest of catches to O'Leary.O. Tremor Control c E. O'Leary b. C. Gardiner 0 (1b 0x4 0x6) SR:0.00
B. Lightyear c A. Dunne b. C. Gardiner 0 (1b 0x4 0x6) SR:0.00
A hattrick for Gardiner!

H. Hunt c A. Dunne b. C. Gardiner 44 (52b 5x4 0x6) SR:84.62
That is 5 wickets for Gardiner!
18.1WGardiner to Hunt : [catch] Hunt gets forward but pushes a bit too far and it loops up to silly point who takes a simple chance.

18.21Gardiner to Roberts : [dropped] A big nick from an attempted off drive. Wedd jumped for it, but it bounced out of his hand. A tough chance, but a missed opportunity nonetheless. The batsmen run a single.

Finished 111/7, would have been interesting if he had taken that catch, as he would have been into the genuine tail enders. Would have been the ultimate rage quit if I lost from there. :P

Too good Dazburger :o


So my affiliate in it's new home New Zealand, had it's first Youth match today. In my FTP career, there has been one things that has eluded me the most, a 200 in a YOD match. My afiliate has a 193 (Priyadharshani), my main has a 193 (Rasil on debut as a 16yo), 198 and 191 (Both Aronstam). Today Menika Deepal, got there after 39.2 overs, and got out for 201 on the last ball of the innings.

And in the second innings, Duminda Thirimanne (lws) needs 30 wickets in 11 matches (He'll tour three times this season) to get to 100 YOD wickets. Unlike the guy before him (Bastian, rws) who finished on 86 and only took 19 from 14 matches in his final season playing on a Dry deck, Thirimanne took 6 to rocket up to 76 YOD wickets, and better crack the ton. :P


So how did everyone else go today? :)

Though I only went with the suggested lineup and saved orders.

Jude Camphin (the only decent kid from my initial squad), made his first 100 (103) after previous scores of 48, 48 and 42. Got man of the match honours too.

Kirsten Roberts (http://www.fromthepavilion.org/player.htm?playerId=1697983), the Windies kid I pulled the other day and now up for sale, made 23 and got a catch and stumping. He's at $7k now.

Also, forgot to set orders for my first SOD this season. Luckily I'm playing a bot.

Innings just ended and made 461-4.

Accom/reli Fish Warner made 102 off 84, reli/reli Arno Van Haaren made 139 off 83 and reli/reli Ismael Abdel 121 off 68 not out.

Hopefully can have the same luck every week.  :P

Doesn't seem like PB to pick the spinner with an available seamer in those conditions.
Side note, just noticed on Friday 2 teams with virtually identical match ratings (10 pt difference, no not missing any zeroes), 142 run victory.

Here's a little game for everyone, spot the batsman. My bowling options today consisted of 4 actual bowlers, and one batsman that can bowl a little bit (ordinary bowling). Here are the figures of the 5 bowlers:

Bowler A (rm): 8-1-23-1
Bowler B (rfm): 8-2-26-3
Bowler C (rws): 8-1-43-2
Bowler D (rfs): 8-0-39-0
Bowler E (rfs): 8-1-33-0

Torp you looked at my game though so you cheated :P


Yeah it was bowler E, the off spinner. Started with a maiden and actually bowled 3 overs at the death which hurt his figures a little bit (was 0/17 off 5). Sunny/Crumbling and I rate his ord/reli + Skilled Bowling over my other option which is avg/reas. And this way also lets me play another batsman.

D.Thirimanne (lws) 8-1-22-5

He is now on 84 YOD wickets, is yet to miss a YOD match but with Sri Lanka winning the tour rights and Crumbling being first preference, he is going to tour and thus miss a YOD match.

Still it would be ultimate choke if he can't get 3 more wickets to get to 87 and be my all time leading YOD wicket taker. I am expecting him to crack the 100 as well.

Lost to the same team twice this week, in T20 where I outrated him by like 16k but just couldn't bat on the Uneven (barely posted over 100), then lost by 7 wickets again in a YOD match when he outrated me by 12k.

*sighs, I've still gotta continue tinkering with orders as can never find the right mix with my guys :-\. If anybody is bored and wants to suggest any tactics for any forms of the matches, feel free to and I'll try them out in friendlies/League matches as got nothing to lose from my current way of going about things.

Main problems is that I struggle getting Batters over 50 runs and grabbing wickets with Bowlers.

Should I still be looking to buy players? If so, are there any specs that I should be looking for?

I remember being told to always look out for players with relevant talents. I don't think any of my current team have any.

I've got like $600k, I assume I shouldn't be spending any larger than like $50k at the absolute most on players if I can?

Ok, so looking at your team here is what I see:

1. You have enough guys of an old age (1x 28yo, 2x 26yo). So when buying players don't go over 24.
2. The only player from your team I can see the skills of is your Sri Lankan, and cap/cap is not good at 20. If you have any other cap/cap players get rid of them asap. This MAY be your only exception, because as you do not own another fast bowler you can hold Kapugedera until you buy another fast bowler.
3. Fielding. This should probably be number 1. Make sure your players can field. By field I mean reliable or higher. Cap absolute minimum no expections to have a player less than cap (if you either sell them or train them in fielding).
4. Buying players. You can go over $50k, seeing as you have $600k I would look at making 3 solid purchases for a combined total of $350k tops, fire off some deadweight (Ross and Pyke stand out as ones that should be fired first), sit at around 14 players.
5. Academies. If you stick to $350k then you'll have some money left over. Upgrade one (maybe both) academies. I don't know what levels they are if you tell me that then i can have a better idea on whether it's worth upgrading or not.
6. Ideally you leave about $100k in the bank just as a bit of a safety net.


So time for specifics. Bats first:
http://www.fromthepavilion.org/player.htm?playerId=1362419 - $75k Seam Spec
http://www.fromthepavilion.org/player.htm?playerId=1288761 - Opener under $10k right now

So if you get those two, no doubt they will slot right into your Best XI. And then you fire Ross and Pyke (they are worth nothing)

Bowlers:
http://www.fromthepavilion.org/player.htm?playerId=1431947 - Medium with a trigger $6k
http://www.fromthepavilion.org/player.htm?playerId=1512335 - rfm Old Ball Bowler $8k
http://www.fromthepavilion.org/player.htm?playerId=1283913 - rfm New Ball Bowler under $10k
http://www.fromthepavilion.org/player.htm?playerId=1361202 - rfs OBB $1k

From there you can fire Ishaq and probably Ventkateshwara. Ishaq goes if you buy anyone, and if you get the spinner then Ventkat goes as well.



That was probably a lot more than you wanted/needed, but I love to go on and on and on about this game, and a new team is the best part of the game. :P
Title: Re: From The Pavilion II
Post by: Hellopplz on April 30, 2015, 03:35:27 PM
Yeah running a new team was the best!

Also for investing in academies, prioritize your Senior Academy for now, since that's where most of your players are being purchased for. And raise the Youth one when you have cash lying around and you can afford it (can bring that at a slower rate than Seniors for now).
Title: Re: From The Pavilion II
Post by: Nige on April 30, 2015, 05:24:29 PM
Cheers PB!

I only got Kapugedera because he was an rf 19yo at the time and I figured it wouldn't kill me to keep him until I got a better fast bowler.

I'm working on training fielding for all players that aren't already cap fielders.

I'll get on to firing Ross and Pyke now, I don't use them anyway so that's probably best.

And I've been meaning to upgrade my senior academy because I figured that would help and make sense.

Yep so XP is his issue. To be honest with you though, when I started out (with both clubs) I ignored XP (I still ignore it now to a certain degree). So yes buy him the fielding and primaries are good, and a talent is perfect.

(However I would go out and have everyone in my team with ordinary XP at 23)

Some people say it's the most important skill. I like to say it is but once you get spec XP I don't think any difference is noticeable moving up from that.

From the rules:
"Experience is a valuable attribute for all players"
"As a player gains in experience, his performances will improve, especially at the lower end of the scale. For example, there will be a more noticeable performance difference between an atrocious and dreadful experienced player than there will be between a reliable and accomplished experienced player."

Other things I've heard is that a player will do better under pressure. A batsman will farm the strike better.

But essentially the games that your squad will play should not require the use of everyone being a respectable level of XP for their age. Simply putting together a team full of accom/accom players with secondaries will get you to Div 3. It's progressing after that when you want the XP as it will make that vital difference.

Win the thing whilst rating 170k. :P In all seriousness though today is a "Should win", then I run into former Pav Cup winner Thorinus United... And 5th seed Crossfire Hurricanes awaits the winner of that match.

I have one positive however. In my leagues I have Sector who has sold up and rates 70k, and I play him on Friday Week 5 and Tuesday Week 6. So I will be able to play stronger Pav Cup sides in Round 4 and 5 which may work in my favour.

Oh yeah, I forgot about that. Being knocked out probably has to do with that though haha.

On Sunday cruised to victory, meaning I will play in round 4 for the first time ever, this afternoon got a pull that will hopefully net my main 6 figures, and tonight I have pulled off a 10k upset over the dominant team in Scotland to sit on top in T20 1.1 after 4 weeks.. :)

It's because I am in Scotaldn and every season when I don't have enough youths at EOS it just fills with base wage Scottish players. I still pull UAE every week, never could bring myself to pull Kenya.
And now I've brought in a future U19 batsman for UAE, why so upset Daz? ;)

5.4 W Thirimanne to Freedman : [stumped] Sleek work from Wettimuny, no need for the replay. The batsman's patience gave way as he shimmied and shuffled down the pitch. Thirimanne saw him coming and cleverly dragged it down, completely beating him with some sharp spin.
L. Freedman st S. Wettimuny b. D. Thirimanne 2 (11b 0x4 0x6) SR:18.18


And with that Thirimanne becomes my affiliate's leading wicket taker with 87 YOD wickets :)

Yep I wouldn't be throwing the match because your NATs are fully rested for PC matches :D



So I won, by 17 runs. Harry Roach is officially a gun. Taken a bloody long time for him to be a consistent player in my Best XI, but at 28 now he is really starting to dominate. He blew the match away from the former champs with an exciting 67* off 49 batting with the tail. And then he stood up when he needed to, taking two top order wickets and then coming back at the end of the innings with the last two wickets to get me through to Round 5.

67* (49) and 4-54, MOTM every day of the week. Horton was unlucky seeing as he scored 115 (114).

So happy to be through, now to beat the 5th seed >:D

My Round 5 opponent had a friendly match, and being the sneaky fella I am I had to take a look at his ratings.

Crossfire Hurricane
Batting - Top Order    14,880
Batting - Middle Order    12,280
Batting - Tail    4,675
Bowling - Seam    14,726 (40)
Bowling - Spin    13,700 (10)
Fielding/Keeping    16,345
Overall    244,310

And judging by his selection of players for the match I can see him picking that XI on Sunday... I suppose there's a reason he is the 5th seed. One positive though is that he has some fatigued boys, so I hope to get a 220k side and then use my brilliance to beat him from there :P

I will have my best XI available but I really wish that I was the home team, bloke only has two spinners and spin the only area that I beat him. Uneven it will likely be :(

Guys I have some sad news :(. At the age of 33, Daniel Currie has decided to call it time on his career at Hello CC. I have decided to give him a farewell match at home in our upcoming SOD match against KISS.

Daniel Currie (http://www.fromthepavilion.org/player.htm?playerId=515313) is a club icon plus a former U19 and Senior National for New Zealand! All started with his debut for New Zealand U19s in a World Cup, also averaging 32.89 in 10 games for the Seniors (just under 300 runs).

Onto club achievements, he's my current #2 OD run scorer with 6090 runs in 193 matches with an average of just under 40! No easy task when considering for most of his senior career he's been playing Div 1/2 competition! #3 All time T20 run scorer for us at 3707 and #2 YOD scorer for us (at an insane 69.68 average across 50 matches)! His catching ability in the field is unmatched across the Seniors.

So sad to see him go, but his time has come, with his skills falling and he feels bad keeping younger bats out of the team while he's unable to perform at past high levels. His long-time friend Harrison Morgan was in tears at the announcement, and has now started contemplating when he should pull the plug on his career :'(.

Played a bot today, but still had some ridiculous performances.

William Walkley opened and made 224 off 150 not out.

Amoghardasin Chengelpet should have got a 100 but made 92 after getting out after hitting the ball twice.

Willie Du Plessis got 7 for 5 with off 2.5 with a maiden thrown in there.

Now hopefully they replicate it against actual competition.  :P

He was, and the players stood up for his last match! Currie scored a decent 39 (off 84) as we won by 16 runs in a minor upset :D. Now he will step aside for the next generation, but has agreed to stay on to be a batting Coach for the Hello Youth squad.

2.3 2 Gomes to Kaushal : [dropped] Oh dear. Kaushal has sent the ball high into the air. Roach positions himself under it and... oh no, he's dropped it! Let me tell you, if looks could kill, Gomes would be on trial right now...

3.3 4 Roach to van der Graaf : [misfield] That's a cracking, punchy off-drive from van der Graaf. Really terrific timing, as he just leans into that shot and pushes it back past Roach, Al-Attiyah at mid-off dives across and can't save it, though he perhaps should have.

Oh come on.... Two failed checks already, and none passed

I've got an emotional attachment to half of my guys... And it's only been 2 months! Be like losing a son or something for you!
Tell me about it. I've only got two guys left from the 11 that I consider part of my first lot of buys. One is 31 and the other is 28. That will be a sad day when those two end their careers.

The player has been in your squad for 1,341 days, meaning you will receive 100% of the sale price.
Are you sure you want to sell Sadique Watson with a starting price of 0?

The player has been in your squad for 1,079 days, meaning you will receive 100% of the sale price.
Are you sure you want to sell Kevin Horton with a starting price of 0?


Geez, not sure I want to get rid of these guys. i won't be selling them though, they are 32 so I will just retire them :(

It's Olli!

He's a year younger than Kai Owens (26), my first buy and main spinner (lfs) so he'd probably replace Venkateshwara (who is 21, reli/reli, took 3 wickets today) who is my second spinner for when I use two on crumbling pitches.

In fact, he'd become my frontline spinner.  :o

Now that the team in my One Day team doesn't have a 192k rating from all 30 yr olds (Must of ran out of money to support them). I shouldn't lose a single game in it.

Cruz Cortez my little Mexican-Canadian is killing it. Comes in at 5 and has only had 4 hits, only gone out once, Made top scores of 180 and 188 and now has an average of 468.00. Only 20 runs off the top spot with 2 less hits.

And in the bowling I got the old man Olivier Blokhout on top with 21 wickets, and Marlon McCarthy on 18 in 2nd spot. With 3rd place already 4 wickets behind haha. Big shootout for them two.

Green dot shows that they are still in youths.

Thirimanne is on tour and will definitely go on the final one as well. So he has 5 matches to take 6 wickets to get to the 100. Chandrasekera may tour if his bowling pops (reli/cap/reli AR) but I am expecting that he will play the remaining 6 matches. He's take 9 wickets in the last 2 matches, keep that up and 100 for him is on the cards :o At the very least I can see him passing Bastian in 2nd place.

Also on a sadder note, Harrison Morgan (http://www.fromthepavilion.org/player.htm?playerId=511835) called a press conference earlier today to announce his retirement from all forms of the game, effective immediately :'(. He has said his body has been giving up on him and doesn't want to stop the progression of his successor in Kyle Dickson :(. It's a sad day but he retires with 168 SOD, 152 T20 and 52 YOD games under his belt, along with 49 games for Australia across OD/T20 Nat games. 78 wickets for Australia, 90 YOD wickets, 201 T20 wickets and 303 SOD wickets (wanted to get him over those this season :P ). Pretty much leading wicket taker for me in everything haha. He has been with me since he was pulled so it's hard to say goodbye but wages are a killer when I'm almost in the red and he just plopped to Expert Tech :(.

Ooooo good luck Youth upsets are hard to come by though :\



My main and affiliate have now played two unbelievable Youth Friendlies in a row (Both matches on Cloudy/Slow). Both U18, first one PBCC chased down 193 with one wicket in hand the ratings were 87,994 vs 87,075. And today OtR chased down 196 with 2 wickets in hand, and the ratings were 82,722 vs 82,277. Today's match I took out the one player from each side that should play NATs thus the lower ratings. Mendis (OtR) scored 74 in the chase today, and 26 of his runs were from the BH talent!

I know no one else cares but I thought I should share that, pretty exciting stuff and both sides rate so closely! PBCC had won the last 8 Youth friendlies before now as well,

do you find having 2 sides a lot of extra work?
My second side after I bought a squad of about 12 is home grown, and I moved to New Zealand so was Div 5 this season. All I have to worry about it is setting orders and training, as TM is irrelevant and scouting isn't really needed. I think once my team starts moving up the ranks it'll be a fair bit more work though, especially as I will rate them both equally and try for both of them to play well.



Interesting note, there were 31 runouts in my T20 league this season. 11 of them came from my fielders :D

Affiliate (OtR) (http://www.fromthepavilion.org/club.htm?teamId=1416)
General comments: Looks like New Zealand Div 4 is not as easy as Sri Lanka div 4, but senior leagues are going to be very difficult to promote from. My 26yo and under squad will not have any purchases as I go home grown with it. I might look at selling Kekulawala (http://www.fromthepavilion.org/player.htm?playerId=1469074) as he is the backup bat and I have a good one coming up in youths.

T20 4.8: I am closer to relegation than promotion in this league. There's a couple of teams which focus highly in SOD and not in T20 (E.g. One of the top 10 ranked sides in the world for SOD is in this league). I might just aim for 6th, seeing as I don't want to relegate (Never relegated in FTP before) and I want to give matches around to my younger players

YOD 4.5: Clearly the easiest of the leagues, with my youth squad being very dominate last season. I lose two NATs and I will have one this season, promotion is the aim here. I have 8 18yos so I need to pull some good 16yos and get them games otherwise two seasons time I will be in major trouble.

SOD 4.4: Easier than the T20 league I am in, hopefully I can be more mid-top table in this league. Got one easybeat in the league at least (Ragnaros Firelords (PkBaldy) ;)). Will still try to give games around but less so here.

Main (PBCC) (http://www.fromthepavilion.org/club.htm?teamId=859)
General Comments: 4th time that I will be competing in all three Div 1 leagues at the same time. My 7th attempt at SOD, and 4th for both T20 and YOD. I need a new spinner Crozier (http://www.fromthepavilion.org/player.htm?playerId=694683) is too old. Kuhlengisa (http://www.fromthepavilion.org/player.htm?playerId=608072) is too old and will be retired after my PC run ends. Means I only have two players that are fm or f, and both are ARs. I should look at buying a mid twenties bowler of this type, but I'm happy to give the ARs every game. I have a 22yo fast bowler coming through but he is definitely not ready to play Div 1 cricket consistently.

T20: Maddin (I think) and Torp were the two that promoted from last season. There's still a slightly inactive Lune Purpura which is the affiliate of former world number 1 and PC winner Neiklot. I've finished in the top half in this league in all three attempts at winning the title, and I will hope for the same this time.

YOD: After finishing 2nd on NRR I think this season won't be as easy. My squad isn't exactly strong and the other teams look pretty good. Joining me in Div 1 is my assistant for Sri Lanka nanook, who is making his first appearance in Div 1 Sri Lanka for any form. A lot will rely on my pace trio Dorenagama (http://www.fromthepavilion.org/player.htm?playerId=1616835), Gamaarachchi (http://www.fromthepavilion.org/player.htm?playerId=1672231), Wickramapala (http://www.fromthepavilion.org/player.htm?playerId=1648532) to take wickets. Dorenagama won't tour if I don't give him more endurance so that is a decision I have to make.

SOD: 6 attempts, and I finished 5th last season which is my highest ever finish. Safe to say I will just roll through and see what comes of it. I always play my best team on Friday's, even with PC, and I've managed to do enough to stay up every season so far hopefully one day I can push for a title.

PC: Just err play the younger ones and see how far I get :P

Ghafur looks like he'll be roughly the same skills as Sulaiman is currently. I think the Sturdy talent is invaluable on an AR so the younger one is who i'd prefer.

Agree with PB, Ghafur may be a bit behind overall skill wise come 20 but the talent is certainly handy. Although if you need a Senior AR sooner, then can keep Sulaiman.

Just brought a new Bowler and Keeper to help me contend in Div 4 OD against PB and 20/20. I know I probably paid overs for the bowler. But i'm happy with his stats. Bring it on Powerman ;)

Monday I was thinking about how great I was at T20, now I sit here wondering what has happened. Been belted in three T20s in a row now (Two of them NAT matches).

Take it you get gate takings from it. Just play your youths and bat first to try and end the match as quickly as possible. Also (I do this but you don't have to) send a message to the manager saying you are playing your weakest players and that you are going to bat first, saves his fatigue levels as well :)

I can see why people wouldn't want to do that though, because it might be seen as mind games haha

Ugh so my main's first round PC opponent is a guy that hasn't logged in for a month... His defaults are batters batting and bowlers bowling and his full strength team rates ~180k. His side at the end of the season rated 130k so this will be fun, I have to play close to my best line-up to avoid a disaster. And to make things worse it's on a Flat :(

That is what you rate without any fatigue though. So you should be able to crack 240k at least I would think? Might require double AR though?

N. Gamaarachchi  (lfm): 6.4-1-13-5

Main will hopefully make Round 5 as per usual. Affiliate I am buying a few oldies to try and get as far as possible. (Also because of the tipping comp if my affiliate goes far I will do well as I tipped my affiliate)

More reason to go far then ;). I'm sure you got some cash kept aside so can buy some decent oldies to help go a few rounds in, but probably not as far as your main.

How many do you have in your main side to make the run and still compete in Leagues?

Usually I like between 20-22, anything less and I feel like I have to start giving up matches in leagues to keep fatigue down. This season the number 20, but that includes a 20yo keeper that is not any good cap/cap/accom, but I am willing to pay his wages to keep for me in PC for this season and next too. Then two guys that will be retired/sold once the run ends. When I look solely at players that are good enough to play in league matches, I have 14. I also get lucky because my Rd 3 T20 match is against a sold up team, so I can rest up completely and roll the seconds out there. It's some compensation I guess for the 170k side I had in Rd 1 where I needed to play some of my top players.


Affiliate has cash which I'm not spending, it doesn't cost that much to get some 31-33yos in the side. I already rate 170k some new additions and then i'm 190k and teams underestimate me and I'm a chance. Opponent this week has only 1 spinner and spin is the strong point of this side, so Dry it is!
Title: Re: From The Pavilion II
Post by: Hellopplz on August 05, 2015, 12:48:15 AM
Yeah found need a good 20+ to make the run work. And a decent back up keeper. I can't afford to let my #1 Keeper (who's only 21) to keep 3 games a week and not suffer fatigue issues, so Cap/Cap/Acc is certainly better than a youth keeper.

Ahh, so only boosting it on lower end. Yeah, guess won't cost a heap to get it up to 190k, Outs/Outs guys should do the job there. And since you're paying attention to pitches, should be able to make it to round 3, but beyond that good luck. May need it if you get a seed then.

The back-up is just the youth keeper that promoted last season, thankfully he wasn't a complete dud. Yeah would definitely say have 20 players if you want to make it work.

Round 3 is 179th seed who rated very well in his leagues. If he takes it easy coupled with me playing my best side maybe I can get through. Still, got to win this week.

Oh shower yeah I forgot to reply I've been so busy. These are his bowling options in order of wage: rf, rfm, rm, rfs, rf, rfm. And apart from the first guy who has a 19k wage the rest are under 10k. That should make the decision of your home pitch very clear and also makes me look really stupid for choosing a Sticky. In addition he runs a 12 man squad and has a PC match on Sunday so if you get him whilst his fatigue is still high you are a real chance (Like I was yesterday....)


So putting 1 and 1 together my pitch is on a Sticky because I set it to a Sticky to beat Otago which was stupid so basically it's going to cost me 2 matches now because next week Pk will get me.

In addition he runs a 12 man squad and has a PC match on Sunday so if you get him whilst his fatigue is still high you are a real chance (Like I was yesterday....)


So putting 1 and 1 together my pitch is on a Sticky because I set it to a Sticky to beat Otago which was stupid so basically it's going to cost me 2 matches now because next week Pk will get me.

I'm thinking of resting both Mealey and Blokhout in T20, just so I know they're fully fit to play you haha. At what fitness do they start lowering in stats??

I'm going to try beating him on Dry then...

When you play a Friendly fatigue is ignored, and they are the best they can be. Technically anything that isn't rested is going to hinder performance, but the higher the endurance then the longer they can play at their best level. So a player might be energetic, but because of his world class endurance the "xxx is tired" won't come up for longer than someone with poor endurance.

But anyone that is passable fatigue or higher I would not be playing if I didn't need to. If I play someone on energetic then I want to be certain that he isn't going to be required for the next match so that he has time to recover.

I break my own rules a lot and this week will show that, I'm seeing whether things will still work by loosening up my fatigue standards on players. I think Mathea is going to play Sunday, Tuesday, Friday (vs you) this week so that will be fun...

Dry can work yeah, that's the pitch I wanted to play him and you on as I have 4 spinners.

R. Bentota (rfm) 6-1-28-4, N. Saldanha 21 (40b), M. McCarthy 6 (12b)
End of over 27 (8 runs) - Ragnaros Firelords(117-5) RR 4.33

Windy/Green vs pk. 150 can be defended but 250 can be chased so basically no idea whether I'm doing well or not. Considering it was 61/1 after 9 I've pegged him back well.

The game is weird how a pitch plays the same way for both teams. The same way that you got a fast fast then I reeled you in I expect you to now bowl more dots, question is, have I put the RRR low enough so that I avoid losing multiple wickets?

Yeah it's really hard to stay there once you're there in Seniors unless you just throw the PC in the first round. I lasted 3 years in T20 but that was due to being saved by the bot flush. My team is now in rebuild mode, I have 4 players left who are 23 or older.

I have no trouble now that I'm settled. I've been lucky generally with teams selling up most seasons though. this season we have 8 good sides in SOD and 7 in T20. So it might be more difficult this time. I might need to rotate one of my starters out every few matches though.

S. Twible (rfm) 7-0-49-2, S. Hafiz 11 (9b), N. Gamaarachchi 2 (7b)
End of over 38 (2 runs) - PowerBugCC(165-8). 12 runs required from 2 overs. RR 4.34 RRR 6.00

38.1 4 Woutersz to Hafiz : Woutersz bounces him, but down leg, and Hafiz confidently hooks that down to fine leg for four. That's a great cricketing shot.

38.2 1 Woutersz to Hafiz : In the blockhole, but Hafiz manages to work it back past the bowler for a single.

38.3 1 Woutersz to Gamaarachchi : Short of a length delivery pitching outside off. Gamaarachchi presents an open blade and glides the ball through to third man.

38.4 1 Woutersz to Hafiz : Short ball on middle, pulled late to fine leg with a pivot on the back foot.

38.5 W Woutersz to Gamaarachchi : Woutersz musters up all the effort he can and fires in a toe crusher. Gamaarachchi obliges by getting himself in line with the stumps and the umpire raises his finger.
N. Gamaarachchi lbw b. B. Woutersz 3 (9b 0x4 0x6) SR:33.33

38.6 W Woutersz to Kumarihami : [runout] Caught ball-watching, slow to respond to his partner's call, run out by a metre. Dreadful running by Kumarihami.
A. Kumarihami run out (N. Gangodawila) 0 (1b 0x4 0x6) SR:0.00

B. Woutersz (rm) 8-0-39-3, S. Hafiz 17 (12b)
End of over 39 (7 runs) - PowerBugCC(172-10). 5 runs required from 1 overs. RR 4.41 RRR 5.00

iuhhui won by 4 runs


There it was, I had the chance to go top of YOD 1.1 after the top side slipped up. True to form, I managed to slip up as well. So flowering close to giving myself my best ever shot of winning a Div 1 title :'( The not out batsman was a Finisher too.

I think the last time I got so excited over a player bowling well was when an old fella with the same name would rip through batting units. This guys doesn't quite rip through them with wickets, he does it with dot balls.

He has a NBB talent, but he conceded 1 run and took 2 wickets in the 18 balls he bowled after drinks. It's special, and he's gonna be a force for me moving forward.

It's a good idea. But as FTP is spread throughout the countries, guess friendlies would be the way to go. Could do random draw to see who starts with it. And to make sure it's not always the same team challenging, they can only challenge like once a fortnight (just in case others don't want to play).

I don't know how UFC works, but the idea of having a full ranking system for our FTP teams makes me really keen.

If only one team can challenge the number 1 then it might be a bit difficult, but then of course you will get many challenges between other teams so they can jump up a spot.

The aim would be to work your way up the ladder to earn the title shot. The champion challenges. Their pitch and weather. People outside the top 10 can't earn a title shot.
For example
Champion: vacant
1 torp
2 pb
3 hp
4 daz
5 bp
6 cookie

And so on. 1 vs 2 for FF senior title. Say pb loses . Pb then versus hp to become number 1 contender. A loss for pb in this match has big results on the ratings. Sitting at 0-2 his chances of title shot take a massive hit. Those with winning records or on a streak get rewarded

i.e Torps would be a good chance of champ but say in 3 seasons he needs to rebuild be good to look back for him and others who may be new see he was up there etc

A random draw? That's a pretty silly idea.
Well that's one way to be completely fair to everybody if starting from scratch.

If going to be very organised than the rankings could work, but then would have to follow friendlies between teams who want them to be counted as ranking matches. Friendlies would be easier to work (especially for pav members) considering the leagues are scattered between all of us.

Winning streaks and records like Cookie pointed out are good. Can also have a top 5 team take on a lower ranked team if they do go on a losing streak to try and get a win down, and gives the chance for a lower team to cause an upset and move up the rankings a bit faster. But would need both sides to agree to the match.

Saying that, would higher teams also have the choice of selecting pitch and conditions when they face a lower ranked team?

I'm for the ranking system, but just needs some organisation and somebody could make a spreadsheet to keep it easy to track and matches held, etc!
Title: Re: From The Pavilion II
Post by: PowerBug on October 11, 2015, 05:49:43 PM
Did someone say spreadsheet? :D


What we could do is, rank teams at the end of the season by OD ranking, then spend about 7 weeks where we get in all the friendlies that people want to play to "adjust" their position, then formally start with those rankings.

Alternatively the end of season OD rankings can just be our starting point, not sure if too many would disagree really. If you're better than you are ranked you will soon rise up anyway.

The top 10 can be arranged for matches. Outside the top 10 need to move up ranks and earn a chance at someone inside top 10. More you win the better the competition

We could also use the Elo system or Glicko system that are used for Chess. I'm reading into the different options currently along with finding out exactly how the UFC stuff works

That's the ufc ratings for a weight class.
Dodson just had a title shot and lost, so he moves down the rankings
#3 next fights #5

Both are on winning streaks, so a possible title shot awaits

The aim is to be ranked #1, more chance of a title shot

But how do you determine whether a player goes down or up when they win/lose? There has to be a mathematical way of explaining it. Then we can use that, because it seems a very good system for us.

They don't do mathematical , that i'm aware of. The have a panel who decides on rankings and they base the overall ratings off that. Losing to someone below you hurts your overall rating. We could work out a ratings point system to use for ours

If I want to avoid my first ever relegation in FTP then I have to go 2/2 in T20, and hope for some other results to go my way. To go 2/2, I have to beat probably the two highest ratings sides in Sri Lanka. The first is only an EIGHT time winner of SL T20 1.1...


I will need an upset of epic proportions, bit like when I fluked this one against him:
www.fromthepavilion.org/ratings.htm?gameId=3054795


Oh, and if I do avoid relegation in T20, I will likely relegate in SOD, unless I find a way to win 2/2 there as well. Guess who I play this Friday? Yep, same team I play tomorrow :-\ If I pull it off I will thouroughly deserve it hahaha

Final match of the YOD season. I have a 0.04 NRR lead on The Deaf Dictators. We are both playing on Uneven/Sunny/

S. Walford (rfm) 7.5-0-25-6, D. Pearse 76 (103b)
End of over 39 (1 run) - amsterdammer(174-10) RR 4.46
This is the score I need to chase.

S. Twible (rfm) 8-0-55-1, R. Porter 10 (6b), R. Rajashi 34 (30b)
End of over 40 (9 runs) - The Deaf Dictators(182-6) RR 4.55
This is the score he needs to defend.


A win inside 35 overs will mean The Deaf Dictators need to bowl their opponents out for under 140 runs. The tighter the games get the tighter the NRR becomes.

I might be on the cusp of my first Div 1 title!

Yeah loyalty is a hard thing to gain, can't blame him for getting experience around the place, but should get involved with the country prior to running for top job, get some 'locals' to know you.

Think I've been with Scotland for most of my time (started with Australia then moved over). Even when I was a Pakistan assistant under Boomz, still followed Scotland unless we were up against them :P. Some managers are the same, they get gigs elsewhere to help out some others, but still have a nation they follow so maybe Torpy is still trying to find that nation? Go where the opportunities lie, but getting a lasting gig is when loyalty will pay off!

Saying that, whenever I'm with Nats/U19s, my club goes all shower :(.

Are you nuts? I've been trying to get into the Scottish frame for the last two seasons, while all you've done is say I'm not part of it. I didn't ASK for a spot with Australia, I consulted Butlee whether he was running for the Aus spot next season, and considering how you forced me out of Scotland I was looking for another country.

What is loyalty? YOU LEFT when we would've welcomed (We being HP AND I, the SCOTLAND national team at the time) another group member. Not ONCE have you included me, or given me interest or reason to be involved. For the record,  viewing England and Canada had nothing do with a national job, and making an assumption like that is ridiculous.

I do care about the nation, if you hadn't noticed I'm quite involved in the general Sri Lankan community which is the reason I show interest in running. Australia was my original country, before I stuck with Scotland for TWELVE SEASONS. Hence my reason to run.

Yeah loyalty is a hard thing to gain, can't blame him for getting experience around the place, but should get involved with the country prior to running for top job, get some 'locals' to know you.
That definitely has happened. Torp does get invovled on the SL forums

Are you nuts? I've been trying to get into the Scottish frame for the last two seasons, while all you've done is say I'm not part of it. I didn't ASK for a spot with Australia, I consulted Butlee whether he was running for the Aus spot next season, and considering how you forced me out of Scotland I was looking for another country.

What is loyalty? YOU LEFT when we would've welcomed (We being HP AND I, the SCOTLAND national team at the time) another group member. Not ONCE have you included me, or given me interest or reason to be involved. For the record,  viewing England and Canada had nothing do with a national job, and making an assumption like that is ridiculous.

Please enlighten me, as to how you have tried to get into the Scottish frame. You messaged me once at the start of my tenure. Yep, you really tried. Oh wait, you mean the fact you were messaging one of my assistants to try and get him to get you an assistant spot. How did I force you out? You are an assistant with Scotland U/19's  ???

You had plenty of time to ask me if I wanted an assistant spot with the nat team. Didn't happen. I was just playing the game as a normal. I didn't approach any nat teams, I just went about business normally, still recruiting Scots. I posted on FF, that I was available to be an U/19 or nat assistant if needed. I got a message from a Bermuda member of FF.

How would you like me to include you? Sack an assistant just for you? You have barely posted in the nat team association in the 2 years, therefore I asked you to leave. Didn't happen though, yet you still didn't post

Ok so ive just returned from a great days cricket at the WACA half pissed and sun bitten.
With all being good and inspired by our great Aussie team i was determined to make it home on time to buy another potential player for my team.

And now this "Gateway Time-out" WTF ::) >:(

Nevermind, twas a choice day. Warner seems to of tempered his aggressive shot selection and looks in complete control of his game right now, whilst Khawaja is surprising me and might be finally staking his claim.

So IF FTP has been down for 7 hours now i might just have to forgo my player and finish off this choice day with skimpys and beer at my local :) :)

Shall be bracing myself for the hangover 2morrow though :( :(

GO AUSSIES!

I'm not normally one to change the names of my FTP players, but I felt like doing this one. Bayya Jansze was just a crap name, and the name I changed it to is an ex First Class cricketer in Sri Lanka (played 76 games). But the reason I chose him is because he now plays at a club which I played a season for, and now as I umpire, I get his team about once a season. The player is exactly like him except the real Madu is a left hand batsman. And he's a great bloke which obviously needs to be a requirement.

Either or, he needs both. Suppose you can alternate. Endo will let him play more matches, Strength will certainly see better results in the matches he does play. I suppose you'd want him out there more often than not so I'd take Fitness to outstanding then look from there, that should give you a power pop along the way.

That's the 2 highest purchases of the season that Liverpool FC has bought.
Do all (Div 1) youth clubs have that much cash???

If so i'm glad i'm now focusing on youths.
I Just have to work out the market for them now so i don't overpay like LFC. I feel i got a grip on the 20-24yr pricings but the $$$ needed for 16yr atm is surprising as i have never really looked to buy top end quality pups before.

More time i have to set aside to study the FTP market :( I should of taken notes the first time around

I wonder if he is doing the opposite of me and transitioning from youths to seniors and just doesn't know the senior market and has more cash than sense.

But then again wouldn't he have his own top quality Yths promoting into his senior side..

His 2.3m purchase of a 27 yr old 40k rating is way over the top too.

Best player ever. Look at that average. He hasn't been dismissed in his last 5, and only twice in his last 11. He doesn't even have an average at number 4, in the 6 times he's batted there he's made 384 runs and has not been dismissed once.

Shame he won't be good enough to take into my senior squad, but being homegrown and the stocks below him being crap I might hold onto him anyway.

If i here back from GM / Admin, i shall let ya know the response.

I came damn close on the weekend to upgrading my youth academy to deluxe and buying some quality 16yr olds to train up.
What stopped me was my surprise at the 700k plus prices. I haven't sussed out the top end of the youth market yet (or haven't needed to) and didn't want to overpay ::)

Thought id be sensible, save the cash and wait a season ::)

Heard back from admin!

Their response:

Hi,
If you had spent the money, then your side would have been in debt and you would have started to sell things to stop your club from going into administration.

Basically in situations like these, you are better off holding on just in case we step in and make an adjustment. If nothing is done within a week, then your probably ok.

If the is the way my future sales are to be treated because of that huge overpay at the start of the season i might have to walk away from the game.

24 years | 51,089 rating | $7,210 wage (0% discount)
Right hand batsman | Right arm Finger spin
Talents   Seam Specialist, Skilled (Batting)
Nationality   UAE UAE
Form   reasonable
Fatigue   revived
Experience   expert
Captaincy   outstanding

Bat outs, tech outs, field outs - close to spec, and think power was cap and end expert.
I listed him for 475 hoping to get it and he was snapped up for that price first day by a coach who has been around since year 2010.

What price were you given for him in the end?
Title: Re: From The Pavilion II
Post by: auscoyote on December 22, 2015, 05:45:49 PM
150k which is a good buy imo.
Had i wanted to sell him for that i wouldn't of put an asking price on.
I would rather keep him than sell him for 150K.

I hope i'm not in some type of black book for dodgey TM deals or something because of that lotto ticket sale. :o
Have written to admin and expressed my annoyance. If they dont wish to solve this problem for an off the bat paid member into his 6th season i shall most probably walk :(

Have seen players of that calibre go for way more than 150K
I'm not going to put up with this shower on all my future trades >:(

Post by: PowerBug on December 22, 2015, 06:12:21 PM
150k is probably about right for a player like that but that is not for the admin to decide, who is the manager that got him by the way link me to his team could you?

Pretty annoying I agree you set a reserve and you get a bite, well done. That shouldn't be getting touched.

It's almost like someone is out to get you by doing this to you :(

Could it be that you are getting hit because of the transfer settlement rule?

"if the player has spent at least 100 days in your squad, you will receive all of the transfer proceeds.

if the player has spent less than 100 days in your squad, you will receive 50 + (days/2)% of the proceeds. For example, if the player has been in your squad for 20 days you will receive 50+(20/2) = 60% of the proceeds."

Seems ridiculous that they would penalise you for what appears to be a reasonable trade...

Arghhh! >:(
So annoying trying to plead ya case to GM!
He is one stubborn mother flowerer.
Some of our communication:

With all due respect sir that is the price i listed him for.
If he wasn't to sell for that then i would want to keep him as a captain option!

I understand you reserve the right and you have taken a big sale off me earlier in the year which i agreed was rightly so over the top and was like winning lotto. This one however i do not think is. I am not trying to cheat at this game in any way shape or form.

I have been a paid member since first joining and love this game. I watch the market closely and that sale was not unreasonable compared to some out there. If my aff team could of bought off my main i would of bought him for 450k as he is the exact player my aff teams needs. Maybe this is why bluekipper8878 bought him as he is a player with a sort after skill set, in a reasonable age bracket, with above average stats for what was on the market at the time.
 
I think you have this call wrong sir and would like you to rethink it or at least get a second opinion please. As much as i love this game and all you guys are doing with it, I might have to rethink that and walk away from it if this is the way my future sales are going to be treated.
 
As i mentioned i'm not out to cheat the system and believe i'm being treated fairly harshly in this instance.
Can you tell me what is the point in having a reserve price if an instance like this one can occur?
What if he was to go on the market with no reserve and the price got that high (or at least higher than 150k) through bidding alone??. Would the price still be looked at if it was in a bidding war? Is this still an option?

Do not want this to become a major issue but i do look fwd to your reply
Regards S.A.

"Hi

At no stage did we think this was an attempt to cheat, but the price is heavily inflated and as a such, it has been adjusted.

Just because you want a price for a player and think that's what he is worth, doesn't mean it is the case. I've had a second look and at no stage do i think a player like that is worth close to 500k.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I feel like walking away from the game just out of principle :-\
The time i've put into the groundwork of my teams though, especially the Brirish Bulldogs which should have some up and coming Nat players is immense :(

Oh well, I dont think there is any way to dispute a Mods call.
The situation really does suck though (especially if it is to continue into the future) and has put a bit of a downer on Xmas :(

I really enjoy the game though and want to get into Nats eventually so I might have to begrudgingly suck it up and roll with the punches!

On the bright side i have been earning some good real life $$$ from my Big Bash bets :)

Merry Christmas all, and may ya summer of cricket be  8)

It's only 320k i missed out on so its not the end of the world in the big scheme of things, as long as GM doesn't keep lining me up in his Sniper sight :P

Maybe I'm imagining it and he is just doing his job but my last sales have both been slashed by over 70%.

I agree he isn't worth what you sold him for, but that doesn't mean he can't be sold for that much! Different value depending on the team in charge!

My thoughts exactly. I had a punt on getting rid of one of my best players at an inflated price to a niche market. Why? because the lack of supply of that type of player with those skills at the time on what i thought was a free market! As you said the value differs from coach to coach depending on there needs, finances and the availability on the maket.

Nevermind i shall know for next time as it seems like the final decision has been made.

Post by: auscoyote on January 04, 2016, 06:48:44 PM
Hey Guys,

I need some opinions.
I was going to set up a milestone club (season) for my players on my blog page. I wanted the clubs to be hard to get into (maybe once every 3 seasons or something) but not totally unrealistic either, or too easy.

Considering you guys have been playing longer than me some ideas on theses would be good.
Stats would be for single season only.

SOD 1000 Run Club
SOD 125 SR Club (Minimum 7 Inn's)
SOD 40 Wkt Club
SOD 3.50 Eco Club (Minimum 420 Balls)
SOD Keeper Club (30 catches, 3 stumpings)
SOD Fielder Club (10 catches, 1 R/O )


T20 700 Run Club
T20 200 SR Club (Minimum 7 Inn's)
T20 30 Wkt Club
T20 4.50 Eco Club (Minimum 170 Balls)
T20 Keeper Club (20 catches, 2 stumpings)
T20 Fielder Club (10 catches, 1 R/O )


YTH 1000 Run Club
YTH 125 SR Club (Minimum 7 Inn's)
YTH 40 Wkt Club
YTH 3.50 Eco Club (Minimum 340 Balls)
YTH Keeper Club (25 catches, 2 stumpings)
YTH Fielder Club (10 catches, 1 R/O )


PC CUP Milestones ?

Are any of these too hard or too easy ya reckon?
As for PC Cup clubs i would have no idea as i have only ever made it to the 3rd round :-[

All thoughts welcome!

shower, it's 4pm, the big bash is on :P
Title: Re: From The Pavilion II
Post by: PowerBug on January 04, 2016, 09:31:32 PM
Got to keep in mind that the Stats centre for OD covers both SOD and PC matches.

Just for reference, as someone who keeps his players for most of their FTP careers, and has been going for 16 seasons now, here's what I would have using your formulas:

1000 SOD runs = 18 players
120+ SR = 1
40 wickets = 14
3.5 econ = 0
Keeping = 3
Fielding = 23

700 T20 runs = 12
200+ SR = 0
30 wickets = 14
4.50 econ = 1 (Back when I first started)
Keeping = 3
Fielding = 20

1000 YOD runs = 14
120+ SR = 4
40 wickets = 17
3.50 Econ = 1 (exactly 3.50, and noone that played 20+ matches came close)
Keeping = 6
Fielding = 23


So by looking at that, there's a few things that are probably out of whack. Strike Rate and Economy bonuses are probably not worth it in any case, the best players at your club will generally be the ones that score the most. Keeping is okay because to reach the standards you set you'll need a keeper for about 2.5-3 seasons minimum.

I would move the SOD and T20 markers up, probably double them both.

Fielding you could also move the numbers up to say 15 or 20 total dismissals?


It also depends on what plan you have with your side. If you do what I have which is basically buy at 16 or at 20 and keep right through to 30 or longer, then you'll get bigger numbers. If you buy old sell old or play the transfer market lots to get bargains then the markers you have might be fine as players won't be at your club for too long.
Title: Re: From The Pavilion II
Post by: auscoyote on January 04, 2016, 11:20:37 PM
Cheers PB,
Thanks for the effort. Exactly what i was after.
Just to be clear these would be season stats only ie -14 matches.
I got my stats from the individual league stats for each season so as not to incorporate the PC cup or overall.

16 seasons worth of data gives me something to think about. Looks like i will have to tinker a bit but i like the idea of having a milestone honours board of some sort. Something for my players to aspire to as i watch them through their careers.

I  looked at some of my stats from 6 seasons worth but i knew they wouldn't be comparable to the higher Divs. Some other team's player in div 5 i think had a strike rate of 204 in t20 over 14 inning's :o and chris gayle was striking at over 300 in tonights big bash, so it is possible lol.
I included the SR club to identify the legendary explosive batsmen that may miss out on the 1000 runs in a season due to batting down the order.

I will have to up the eco rate by the looks but i have had 2 bowlers pull off under 3.5 so far both in div 5 though and one youth this season is on track in div 3.
I still think Eco is underated and there should be a trophy for it.

Fielding will definitely have to be upped like you said but the keeping looks about spot on.

I dont want to be entering names in every season so i want them to be illustrious clubs and achievements  :P

Thanks mate and having 18 players scoring 1000 run seasons is damn consistent 8)

Cool
No rush mate, only if ya get time.

It would be good if FTP could put something like this up on an honours board page as has been suggested before. Where the players name, Div#,country and age achieved gets automatically entered with maybe even a line in the commentary when they pass a goal.

I may add it to the suggestions if i can work out the right balance of requirements for each milestone club.
Title: Re: From The Pavilion II
Post by: auscoyote on January 05, 2016, 10:58:31 AM
I made some slight adjustments to the requirements.

I decreased youth wickets to 30 as they have less overs that they can bowl to obtain goal.
40 wickets for seniors would be a tough ask  as it means a bowler would have to average slightly under 3 wickets per match but it makes it a prestigious club.

I slightly increased the deliveries needed to be bowled in the youth and T20 Eco rates so as balls bowled needs to be a tad over half the amount that can be bowled in a season.

These will be tough clubs to break into :P
Hope i can get the balance right.

Ok, maybe they might be too hard but they aint meant to be easy. How often do our Aussie batmen crack 1000 runs in a calender year. Didn't Smiddy do it recently in the one dayers or was that the tests? shower my memory is failing!

Just going through mine atm and i have 3 entries into the (SOD SR club) and 1 in the (1000 runs) in one season but that was my first season  Div 6 :P

This might be harder to work out than i first thought lol

I might have to research some stats from the top 3 divs to find the the balance of requirements.
I need to make them hard but obtainable.

It might be a job for the weekend.
Title: Re: From The Pavilion II
Post by: PowerBug on January 05, 2016, 11:40:47 AM
Scoring the runs is very difficult. 1000 runs in ~15 matches for OneDay is a very difficult thing, especially when many games are going to be played where the team total is under 225 runs. And you want your player to score ~70 runs in those games. It's a really big/almost impossible task.


S14, 15, 16 was obviously when I was roughly Div 4. S27 and 28 was when I was full Div 1.

My SOD as it looks like on blog page. 5 and half seasons worth.

SOD 1000 Run Club
Abdur Ashraful -1389 (Aus 6.15 S24)  Age 21


SOD 120 SR Club (Minimum 7 Inn's)
Abdur Ashraful-124.69 (Aus 6.15 S24) Age 21
Charles Forde -126.64 (Aus 6.15 S24) Age 20
Durrell Tonca -140.8 (Aus 6.15 S24)  Age 21
Namal Chahazzie -137.40 (Aus 6.15 S24)  Age 20
Keyfa Phalgun -122.63 (Aus 5.13 S25)  Age 29
Paul Reiffel -120.25 (Aus 5.3 S26)  Age21
Leslie Ellis -135.40 (Aus 5.15 S27)  Age 28
Titus Bramble -133.75 (Aus 5.15 S27)  Age 22


SOD 40 Wkt Club


SOD 3.50 Eco Club (Minimum 420 Balls)

Adil Sharif -2.93 (Aus 6.15 S24) Age 21


SOD Keeper Club (30 catches, 3 stumpings)

Namal Chahazzie -32/5 (Aus 6.15 S24) - Age 20


SOD Fielder Club (10 catches, 1 R/O )


But all were achieved in div 5 and 6 :( and none in div 4 but i am transitioning to youths so that might have something to do with it  :-\
Obviously SR is too low and could probably bump up to 125 but i still dont know about higher divisions.
Still unsure of the other requirements as well. Good to see PK hit the 40 wkt club 8), would that happen once every 5 or 6 seasons in the top divs?

More research required

If FTP were to this properly they would need a sliding scale of requirements for each division.

After a bit of research in div 1 SOD, 40 wkts is possible but unrealistic ,probably 35 would be the go
SR is about 100 and 700 runs is also possible, meaning an average of 50.

The 3.5 eco rate is obtainable as is the fielding but the keeping would prob have to be lowered to 25ct/3st from what i've seen.

As for Yth and T20 more research required :P

It would be good if ash could implement something like this into the game.
An achievement page with a drop box so you could switch from SOD, T20, Yth, PC Cup

It would save me working out if any of my players a worthy for these prestigious clubs and entering them manually each season  :-\

That SR though for 100 runs haha. He's slowly becoming my favourite player in my team.

'That is 100 runs for Dean (100 runs, 40b, 13x4, 3x6) SR:250.00'

Need a bit of advice on Grounds Capacity. I got about 900k in the bank, and don't really plan on buying any new players next season. Should I upgrade my ground? I currently have 7000 capacity and I fill it up every game. Is it worth it to upgrade it to say 10k? or even more?

I like to go up in increments of no more than 5k, and use 3 regularly so I'd got up to 10 if I was you.

G to 10k, you should fill it up or atleast get close. I went from 7500 to 10,000 and am now at 12,500. Have had it for 5 weeks and only filled it up once  :-X

Out of curiosity, how many members ya got nrich.

My affiliate has 1646 supporters and I recently uprgaded to 14k from 11k. I'd go to 11k I can see you filling that out soon as well.



Also, if you are filling out your stadium (Excluding PC as that will almost always fill out) it means you have a ground that is too small. The closer it is to capacity but without actually being capacity is the ideal scenario.

Well that throws my formula out then :P. By my method i would recommend 11,500 GC but you have already maxed out 12,500. Doh!

PowerBugCC - 2391 supporters, 19,250 Capacity
2391*8 = 19,128
Highest attendance this season: 18,894.

Off the Radar - 1646 supporters, 14,000 Capacity
1646*8 = 13,168
Highest attendance this season: 11,928 today.


You might be onto something here. Obviously supporter mood and division has a bearing on crowd numbers but your supporters * 8 might be a good indicator here.

0.6WLidgerwood to Lee : Quick on the leg stump, going straight on, Lee looks to play to the on side, misses the line of the ball and gets hit on the pad in line with the leg stump. A loud appeal from everybody and the umpire lifts his finger.B. Lee lbw b. J. Lidgerwood 22 (6b 4x4 1x6) SR:366.67

What the flower o.O Three triggers in one over


0.1 4 Lidgerwood to Lee : Too full from Lidgerwood. Lee simply leans into it and punches the delivery to long on with exceptional timing.

0.2 6 Lidgerwood to Lee : [Boundary Hitter] Bouncer, hooked all the way to the fence. Six runs!

0.3 4 Lidgerwood to Lee : [Boundary Hitter] That delivery from Lidgerwood was quick. It has taken the bottom edge, somehow missed the stumps and goes all the way to the boundary.

0.4 4 Lidgerwood to Lee : [misfield] Sometimes I wonder if Haysman has ever been to a fielding practice session. It's ok to bat and bowl but even the superstars have to field.

0.5 4 Lidgerwood to Lee : [Boundary Hitter] I don't think that Lidgerwood will want to put it there again. Too short, and just making it a bit too easy for Lee to score.

0.6 wd Lidgerwood to Lee : Wide of off stump. Lidgerwood grimaces in frustration.

0.6 W Lidgerwood to Lee : Quick on the leg stump, going straight on, Lee looks to play to the on side, misses the line of the ball and gets hit on the pad in line with the leg stump. A loud appeal from everybody and the umpire lifts his finger.
B. Lee lbw b. J. Lidgerwood 22 (6b 4x4 1x6) SR:366.67

End of over 1 (23 runs) - Ragnaros Firelords(23-1). 108 runs required from 49 overs. RR 23.00 RRR 2.20
N. Saldanha 0 (0b), B. Grimsditch 0 (0b), J. Lidgerwood (rfm) 1-0-23-1



I also like how it took another 38 overs to get the remaining runs ;D

Got a Humid/Green today. First four bowlers are rf, rf, rfm, rfm, two of which are all rounders. Which should be my 5th bowler?

Turns out he made a last day pitch swap to Hard, which is really puzzling because Hard is my favoured deck ??? So that makes the decision easier and I'll pick Lwana.

two for sure, 3 if you like them.



I've bookmarked the following two matches for when people next choose to complain:

Look at the score, then look at the ratings. Also a reason to always try, coz you never know.

http://www.fromthepavilion.org/gamedetails.htm?gameId=3193439
Look at the score in the chase. 116/1 with 10 overs left, 33 runs required. It's obviously game over isn't it??

Looked at the 1st one. Well and truly beats my underdog PB. Screw Hawthorn as underdogs by 87k to win :o Remarkable! What are the odds?

Trying to work out how the El Dude stuffed that up as it was only ever his to lose.
He had the better bowling line up for the conditions too imo.

1) I thought maybe all his 29/30 year old's might of been shattered from the PC or something but it was only the 2nd week of the season and a squad of 20 to choose from.

2) The number 87.  Nup, NZ Division and not one Aussie player in his side

3) After seeing hawthorns ratings from week one, he went in with shonky experimental orders thinking he could blitz it. (Most Likely)

Looks like he maybe went too Aggressive at the top chasing early % in the season and it backfired big time.
 
His #4 & #6 on (D) imo, held things together quite well until the 25th and 28th and easily managed to keep the RR up at 4.3. Once they were gone though,the keeper and the tail still had a fair bit to do needing a tad over a ton but still doable if they could bat the remaining 22 overs.

Some more (A) orders? maybe, but the the damage was done by one of the top 3 not hanging around.

Enter the wildcard wristy on a sticky to take the crucial and timely wickets of the AR Seam Spec captain (definitely on A) plus their finishing keeper before the 40th and all of a sudden the bowlers are exposed and are in disarray wondering if they packed their bats. (the crowd would not of been happy)

4) Screw Hawthorn are just too good a side that should never be underestimated and their coach can hack into the FTP system.

Other than that, I dont know how the hell he lost it if he went in with half decent orders and that side.
It's a bit like the Aussies the other day in the 1st ODI in NZ :(

PLEASE BRING IN USIE!

Note: To be able to see his orders and check out how exactly he flowered up would be interesting. Even if we could still access the Manhattan, that would shed some light too.
In the end the though the power favourites got rolled, the underdogs re-write the record books and gain legendary status and their fans are probably still celebrating the victory. Great Story!

Yeah that's pretty ridiculous, he backed it up two week slater with like a 50k upset or something.


I'm equal 1st in my attempt to return to Div 1, but lots of NRR down so the other guys needs to lose a game. I'm doing my best to stuff things up for myself today:

S. Stevens (rfm) 10-0-45-1, N. Al-Attiyah 11 (14b), G. Maloney 6 (13b)
End of over 30 (3 runs) - PowerBugCC(140-5) RR 4.67
Only 1 All Rounder today (Coz this is 8th place so I played a younger fast bowler instead) so it's all bowlers after this partnership. Humid/Dry are the conditions and I know once I pass 200 it's defendable for me but I'm still nervous right now.

L. Witt (rws) 6-1-25-0, P. de Bakker 7 (15b), T. Belldozer 38 (68b)
End of over 30 (5 runs) - Cuban Allstars(125-4) RR 4.17
Side in 1st is batting here on a Slow, he should still win from here but wickets would make this game interesting.

If you were referring to my post you might be right  :P

I was logged on and attempting to work out that match after partaking in some wacky backy for the first time in about 5 years lol. After much deliberating it was the best solution to that match i could come up with at the time and could well be off the mark haha.

If Screw Hawthorn backed it up 2 weeks later with another great upset win, then maybe the best and easiest summation is that his team should never be under estimated.

End of over 48 (3 runs) - Tenfold Retribution(220-8). 29 runs required from 2 overs. RR 4.58 RRR 14.50
J. Okocha 0 (3b), J. Martin 105 (130b), N. Al-Attiyah (rfm) 9-1-35-1

48.1 4 Tasleem to Martin : Tasleem went for the glory ball, full and on the stumps, but Martin is too good and flicked this with ease to the midwicket boundary.
48.2 4 Tasleem to Martin : Goes for the big expansive cover drive, but edges it past his stumps instead! Four runs, Tasleem and Maloney cannot believe it!
48.3 4 Tasleem to Martin : Superb reflexes from the umpire! That was a scorcher and he leaped out of the way like a frightened squirrel.
48.4 4 Tasleem to Martin : Martin hits it nicely into the gap past a diving short cover and gets four.
48.5 . Tasleem to Martin : [great fielding] Pitched a bit short, and Martin latches onto it. The ball flies to cover point, where some wonderful fielding by Livera cuts off a certain boundary. Martin can't believe his misfortune. Probably the best shot of the day.
48.6 1 Tasleem to Martin : Mix up between the batsmen as the ball goes straight to the fielder. Stop, run, stop and they finally come though for a single.

End of over 49 (17 runs) - Tenfold Retribution(237-8). 12 runs required from 1 overs. RR 4.84 RRR 12.00
J. Okocha 0 (3b), J. Martin 122 (136b), M. Tasleem (rf) 10-0-54-3

49.1 4 Al-Attiyah to Martin : Marginally short and outside the off stump, Martin waits on the back foot and thumps the ball through cover for a glorious four. Maloney gives Al-Attiyah some advice. Perhaps about length.
49.2 1 Al-Attiyah to Martin : Bowled full on the off, eased through the gap between cover and cover point for a single.
49.3 . Al-Attiyah to Okocha : Solid forward defensive by the batsman pushes the ball just wide of cover. Okocha calls for the single but is quickly sent back by the non striker.
49.4 1 Al-Attiyah to Okocha : A big inswinger is clipped away by Okocha for a single, that was very well watched!
49.5 4 Al-Attiyah to Martin : Short, wide and four. Immaculate timing from Martin. Byrd at cover didn't even see it.
49.6 2 Al-Attiyah to Martin : A flick of the wrist from Martin sends the ball racing towards the deep square leg boundary. A great chase by Rasil fielding at fine leg cuts off the boundary and he rockets the ball back to Maloney

End of over 50 (12 runs) - Tenfold Retribution(249-8) RR 4.98
J. Martin 133 (140b), J. Okocha 1 (5b), N. Al-Attiyah (rfm) 10-1-47-1




If I won, I was all but promoting. But I lost, now I need to win next week (should do) and top needs to lose, and he slipped up today for the first time this season against an opponent that wasn't me. Ahhh looks like another Div 2 season :(

While we are talking stats does anybody know and wish to divulge the % of training that goes to each skill.

Now that i have a couple of potential Nat players I've been looking more closely at training times so started collecting some data the last 2 weeks but will be a long way off sussing it completely.

All that i have managed to estimate so far is fielding on a 16yr but i'm still not definite on this without checking against some other older players.
I knew i should of looked into this sooner ::)

Ok cheers mate. I thought fielding would be the same with maybe a 70/15/15 split or 70/20/10 but going off my 16yr old putting  on 410 pts a week on fielding and popping every 3 weeks this season, 70% didn't cut it.

It might be 80% instead of 85, all depending how many spares were with him when first drafted.

I'm going to finish 6th in YOD league, but I have one thing to look forward to in today's game.

(http://i66.tinypic.com/nf3e3k.jpg)

Can Nandimithra hang on and make it 3 first place bowling trophies in his YOD career? (Would be the first time in 1.1 SL YOD history a bowler has gone 3 in a row) Can I finish with 3 of the top 5 bowlers? Not playing Ratnayke today (at this stage) as giving a few younger guys a shot so I probably won't finish with 4 in the top 10 but best case scenario here is I finish with 1,2,4 overall :)

You are playing him I assume? Also I just had a brilliant idea that instead of doing all this manually (calculator) I should create an excel spreadsheet so I can jsut plug the numbers in from now on :P Surprised I never thought of this earlier.

If you win 250 runs vs 150 runs your NRR will only rise to +1.8101. So good luck is what I say :(

I knew there was a reason I never got around to completing this. I tried to keep numbers for training, probably about 5 seasons ago, but there was just too many variables which is why I was never able to collect enough data. What you have to remember is that once a players skill reaches outstanding, training slows down.

http://www.fromthepavilion.org/player.htm?playerId=1315320
Has spent what I believe is 19 sessions on Batting training since his last pop. And has Gifted Batting. Here I was wondering why it hadn't popped yet. He's gaining 100 points a week thought that surely 70 are going to batting... GM-deltronzero said not to expect the pop until mid next season so that means under 50 points are going to batting... (As if he popped after 20 weeks then 1000 points into 20 weeks = 50 points per week). So yeah that's a problem you will encounter when looking at players with skilled above outstanding, your % will be out of whack.

Never train a player to World Class unless you have a huge academy. Speaking of which I might upgrade mine..

Academy Level:    superior
Last Changed:    25 Apr 2013 04:10
Almost 3 YEARS since I moved it. That was probably when they made the change from weekly investments and fluctuations to this level up/down system.

So I feel kinda great but bad at the same time.

This time last season Torp was sitting a game down and a lot of NRR to Cuban Allstars heading into the final round (Div 2 SOD). He proceeded to buy a few players, rated 36k more than him (as they were playing eachother) and won by 228 runs, leapfrogging into 1st place on the final day.

This season, Cuban Allstars has been dominate, beaten everyone comphrensively, except one team, mine. Heading into last week he had two losses, I had two losses, but his NRR was way more than I could consider catching up. He lost last week, but the chance I had to basically assure me of promotion slipped when I conceded 29 runs in the last two overs to lose. So today I had to win (easy task playing a fatigued, low rating side) and he had to lose to a side sitting in relegation...

N. Abdullah (lfs) 3-0-15-1, M. Subasinghe 48 (71b), P. Vadivel 9 (8b)
End of over 25 (9 runs) - Mungo's Deformed Dwarves(105-5). 5 runs required from 25 overs. RR 4.20 RRR 0.20
He's going to lose his promotion to Div 1 on the last day two seasons in a row.

N. Al-Attiyah (rfm) 1-0-4-0, X. Charumbira 6 (13b), A. Mubalik 2 (12b)
End of over 8 (7 runs) - Direwolves(32-3). 366 runs required from 42 overs. RR 4.00 RRR 8.71
That's my game so I think I feel pretyt safe in saying that I am going back to Div 1 for next season. Now I get to play you properly Torp, not in the random as flower T20 leagues.

As for my season the Coyote's struggled whilst blooding youths in SOD and T20. They managed 5th & 5th though in Div 4.

The young Coyote pups went back to back with promotions earning them Div2 8)

So it's impossible to break into my club's Hall of Fame, currently got 9 members after I inducted 2 new members today.

http://www.fromthepavilion.org/player.htm?playerId=833307
This guy is like the heart and soul of the club. I pulled him Wk 0 of Season 15 (So I was entering my 2nd full season), avg/dread pull, nothing else that special. 4 seasons later it's 3061 YOD runs after playing every single match (over 800 runs clear of 2nd to this day). Also had about 50 senior games to his name by that point (There was no training penalty for fatigued players back then). Put another 11 seasons behind him, and it's a total of 11,772 competitive runs. He's not top in either SOD (2nd) or T20 (3rd) but the fact he's been with the club for all those seasons from the start. Basically he's seen the club rise from where I start right up to Div 1. 31yo next season so has two and half seasons left and I really hope I can find a way to pick up a senior Div 1 trophy in that time.

http://www.fromthepavilion.org/player.htm?playerId=717829
This one is just as incredible I feel. I bought him start of season 18, he was the first wrist spinner I had bought. With a lot of other positions I have bought 1 season fixes to improve my side (or even one week fixes in some cases) but in terms of a wrist spinner, I've never played another one ahead of him, it's been Buddy from Season 18 to this day. He is equal 5th all time for SOD wickets (176), but a clear first in T20 wickets (175). There one thing that I never forget about Austin, and it was his performance against Torp in our 4th match ever. link here (http://www.fromthepavilion.org/scorecard.htm?gameId=2095608). He didn't get in the votes, but it was the way he basically gave my team a chance which I never forget (And neither does Torp, because he had that game WON). Now he's about to be 33yo, he's still the lead spinner, and he will definitely play through my PC run, but after that? Well it depends on how close I am to a SOD title, because he's still my number 1 WS option (His skills are gonna drop badly this season though, gonna be sad to see).



I just felt like dribbling all that out, two club legends right there. And when I think about it these are the last two players from the original PBCC side that I created from the bottom up, the next oldest player Franklin Byrd (28yo) started playing SOD properly when I was in Div 1, so he's from the 2nd wave of players.

Title: Re: From The Pavilion II
Post by: DazBurg on February 24, 2016, 07:39:22 PM
For all you super pros.... Can someone explain to me 'Spare Ratings'...?
spare ratings is the sublevels in each skill between the current level they are at and the next level

it is calculated on a scale i.e
atrocious - 0
dreadful - 1000
poor - 2000
ordinary - 3000

and so on
Title: Re: From The Pavilion II
Post by: PowerBug on February 24, 2016, 08:59:28 PM
Helps you determine how close to a pop a player is.

So as mentioned, the 7 trainable skills contribute to the player ratings. A player with say accomplished batting, has at least 8,000 rating points. if he has expert, he has at least 9000. So accomplished means that he has somewhere between 8,000 and 8,999 rating points in Batting, you don't know exactly how many though.

So add up the minimum number for eash skill of your player, and subtract that from their actual player ratings, and you know how many spare he has hiding in those skills, and thus you have an idea whether he is close to a pop or not :)
Title: Re: From The Pavilion II
Post by: valkorum on February 24, 2016, 09:22:21 PM
And generally when there is between 4000 - 5000 points difference, the player is due to pop.
Title: Re: From The Pavilion II
Post by: Pkbaldy on February 25, 2016, 06:56:27 AM
So Boulos Zatman is on 52,890 and doing that calculation he's on 50,000. So does that mean he's a couple weeks off popping?? Because I wouldn't mind his batting to pop to Spec.

It means he has 2890 spare ratings (52890 - 50000)

When he gets to between 4000 & 5000 points then he is "normally" close to popping.  I am not too experienced with the amount of gain per training for seniors, but my current 20 & 21yo seniors are only getting between 140 and 180 per week (in a superior academy on primary training).

So I would say you are a while off getting a pop.
Title: Re: From The Pavilion II

Doesnt have to be between 4000 and 5000. Just depends where thr spare ratings are!

Exactly, but for a player you just bought (like Zatman is) you don't know where those spare ratings are unless you asked the previous manager before you bought him.


http://www.fromthepavilion.org/player.htm?playerId=1315320
For example my player here has got almost 3,000 spares. But he's been on batting for 20 weeks and fairly sure he used to have just a tick over 1,000 spares at one point (And hsan't popped in anything since). So I have a fair idea to expect a pop soonish.

Just to double check with you, the home page still your leagues from last season. You need to go to fixtures for the new leagues. I haven't looked at your team myself but that's just for you to look at as you may be looking at the home page still. Coz I would be surprised if there were 5 bots in Div 3 or 2.

so if there's a bot not relegating from Div 3 or higher, the best performing 7th placed side in Div 3 stays up. So with you being 8th in your league, that means there were at least 5 bots that finished the season in 6th in Div 3 or better. Which is a huge amount :o

 I wasn't going to use Mahmoud... He was my 3rd choice in spinner... We mostly played on batting and pacey pitches. But I wanted to mix it up and play an extra spinner. But he don't well!!

Does he play dirty? :P

On a side note, I really do forget about FTP sometimes :(. Lucky I didn't forget orders for my SOD but still won, had to set orders for Pav Cup so I don't flower over my guys for fatigue :P. Probably stepping back from the U19 scene, although RB isn't able to find assistants and pretty much does everything himself so doesn't mind me along even though I am hardly dedicated. So if anybody wants a assistant position and keen to get into U19 Nats, feel free to hit me up and I can ask Ragingbull (if he gets re-elected of course).

Do you plan on any more Fielding training?

If you want him to be playing well for you soon then you give him strength training now. If you want optimal training to be the best for NATs (Which is my guess) then you leave Strength training until he at least is 24, probably even 25.

Think about what you want the end product to look like. excep/excep, lots of power and Endo, about a $20k wage? Keep training bowling/tech at least until he is excep/excep.

Haha nice work BP. All wrestling names are they? Just remember our old mate on here CrowsFan renamed his entire team to cat names, so just remember there's always someone worse out there ;) Geez his team is good though, lowest waged player is an outs/outs/spec AR with spec fielding and BH talent. Remember all his players are 24 as well ;D



Got Torp this Friday, no idea how much I want to win this one. I need the win for the sake of my season, 0-2 and one of the weakest in the league, gotta find wins somewhere.

My 20/20 team couldn't of started any better. 3-0, got my 5 bowlers in the top 10 for wickets, and got 3 of the top 4 for total runs. With Hugh McCarthy 260 runs and hasn't gone out and Jaden Daniel 136 runs and also hasn't gone out.

Unless 1 of these guys spend like 2m on fuelling their team.. I've got this easy.

so in my 20/20 after losing the first week's game on my favorite pitch in slow i beat CF last week on Hard
back to my Favorite pitch
(well might of used to be)

i scraped in for a 3 runs win even though i out rated him by nearly 20k!!!

    DazBurg's Greatness    Swamp Dwellers
Batting - Top Order    11,770    12,523
Batting - Middle Order    9,105    8,088

Fielding/Keeping    15,729    14,859
Overall    213,108    196,182

my bastmen just didn't set a big enough total
he looked to be cruising to an easy victory

M. Yaseen (rws) 2-0-12-1, C. Pearse 24 (29b), T. Chapungu 0 (1b)
End of over 11 (3 runs) - Swamp Dwellers(66-2). 42 runs required from 9 overs. RR 6.00 RRR 4.67

then Pittman Strikes!


D. Kenny c F. Kaleel b. R. Pittman 0 (1b 0x4 0x6) SR:0.00
A hattrick for Pittman!
11.3
W
Pittman to Kenny : [catch] Short of a good length delivery on the stumps, Kenny makes room and takes a swing. The ball clips the top edge and balloons up to mid-on.
11.2
W
Pittman to Sankey : [catch] Out! Sankey has nicked a regulation outswinger from Pittman to Kaleel at first slip.
T. Sankey c F. Kaleel b. R. Pittman 0 (1b 0x4 0x6) SR:0.00
11.1
W
Pittman to Pearse : [stumped] Smart stumping! Pushed across Pearse, who drives lustily and misses, dragging the back foot forward and Valentine, after collecting nicely, whips off the bails just before Pearse could drag the foot back in.
C. Pearse st A. Valentine b. R. Pittman 24 (30b 0x4 0x6) SR:80.00

from then on steady Wickets fell with Pittman finishing with figures of

R. Pittman (rm) 4-0-24-5

considering he went for 12 runs form his first over to bowl the next 3 at 5- 12 i was quite happy with his finish ;)

Thanks. I plan on running in 2 seasons. As long as it's either me or Tasneef... Because if it's both of us and we get shared votes. This half wit will probably win it. Might even get Nige and my mate who plays to change over to UAE voting.
