No, 1 will go to my other team, our level 8 DT demanded a trade after a dispute with the owner.

Ok...I will send an offer over for Frank Jr. then.

I just signed a LVL 4 possession WR to be a backup for us. That should fill the WR position for us.

Have you set up your training schedule yet? Also read through the team forum for advice. Especially advanced tactics, I think that is the main thing that you will have to keep up with because we change our game plan according to the team we are playing(every other day).

I have to look again but i think we have the best depth in our leage. I will be looking at the team forums later tonight to set the depth chart.

I really want to beat these guys this next game so everyone please set your players to the OC and DC game plan. This game will teach us alot about how to set our team up for games.

Hardcore is seeing about trading for a LVL 8 OG that really wants to play for us. If that deal gets done, we will be just about set on the offense. We still need one OT, but everything else on the offense is filled. If we can't get the trade done, we will need one more OG. The team is rounding out nicely.

Well, the trade is a no go, so we still need another OG. We also need one OT and one more DT. If someone wants to build a QB, for depth purposes only, we could use one as the 3rd string QB. The 3rd QB won't get much playing time, but it's better to have one and not need one than to need one and not have one.

Well, it is usually a bad sign when your safety is getting a lot of tackles. It just means the front seven aren't doing their job. Or we allowed a lot of completions.

site's down, hopefully they're adding the extra servers because it's been pretty slow since this season started.

this team has really impressed me. i was very worried about both of these last two games because we committed very heavily on defense (pass in game 1, run in game 2) but we guessed right and everyone played well. what really stands out is how everyone's on the same page, keeping up with their players, and we're getting lots of feedback and updates. plus it's just a lot more fun with you guys ... everybody's offering to help and looking out for eachother.

good win guys ... two games in (against solid competition) and we've outscored our opponents 40-6!

I'll be honest with you, I was seriously impressed with how those new O-Linemen played. They didn't open any BIG holes, but they did ok. In the passing game, they formed a very nice pocket for our QB to stand in. I don't think there was a single hurry on our QB the whole game. I was not expecting that kind of performance out of a buch of brand new LVL 1 guys.

Well, I'm disappointed in our kicker's performance in this last game. He missed back to back FG tries in the 3rd and 4th quarters. Both should be within his range, so I think he needs more training for vision/confidence. Great job by the defense, but in a close game like it was two misses could be critical. I'm focusing more on vision for now. I have to get that at least over 20. I may have to consider an early season level boost. Let's see how tomorrow goes.

I think your confidence is fine where it's at. You do need to get his strength built up. A kicker has to have the leg strength to kick the long ones. I have done some research, and I have seen it suggested that a kicker needs a little speed and agility to increse his leg speed and accuracy. Use your skill points in strength first and then vision next. Try to get your strength up to at least 25 and your vision up to at least 20. Use your daily training on speed.

Hey man, don't worry about it. Sometimes balls don't get thrown your way and such.

I have a lvl 10 CB, and in the 6 games he's only had 10 tackles and 1 pick.

6 of those tackles came in my first 2 games, too. So I've been in a big big drought. I've been watching the game film, and noticed that they almost never throw to me.

Just keep ya head up and I have a feeling you'll have a breakout game in 47 hours. ;)

don't worry too much about running to avoid the rush. Our QB's really havn't been pressured much at all, and with our O-line, I don't think they will. Right now, just worry about getting his arm "STRENGTH" and "VISION" built up. On your special ability tree, focus on your pocket passer ability. But the main thing is to get your Strength built up.

I've got three players on two different teams, and wouldn't mind getting one of them onto the Toros one day.
It looks like you guys are pretty full, so I'll check back from time to time to see what opens up. My lvl 10 DE, Buck Ditkus is signed for three years, and the owner of that team won't trade during the season, so I think he's going to stay put for a while. Other than thatm, the other two players might be available at some point in the near future.

Some of us are running multiple players, as we had to get the team going on time. I don't know everyone's situation, and I can't speak for anyone else, but I have a special teams/backup project DE on the team that will probably be good over time, but I don't mind bowing out for a TT.com member. My main focus is running the ball.

I sent you a PM on the GLB forum, apologizing for you not getting more carries. I am pretty sure since the admins made the changes to the sim it has effected it somehow. After the screw with the energy levels they gave everyone free flex points as a make up. Since then, the carries dropped off.

Take a look at the message and let me know what you think, we want to get your more involved on special teams too, as KR/PR. We will continue to play with the sub levels and get you in there. Again, I am sorry, it has not been intentional from the coaches. We are striving for equal playing time as possible.

Take a look at the message and let me know what you think, we want to get your more involved on special teams too, as KR/PR. We will continue to play with the sub levels and get you in there. Again, I am sorry, it has not been intentional from the coaches. We are striving for equal playing time as possible.

I don't know if you read the GLB forum, but your lack of carries has been noticed and they are trying to fix it.


Cool...Sounds good......

I can't access GLB here at work, but thanks for the heads up...

Will check when I get home...

For the first 4 games every back was getting good playing time, they did change something in the game simulations because we went back to the old way we had the backs set up and it is not working the same as before.

We are trying to work it out but we only get to try it once every two days. Everyone on the team is just as important as the next guy and we want everyone to develope so we have some real threats in our depth positions.

Really no benefit out of it just a few more points giving to you. I would not train on intense unless you are in the off season and have alot of money.

Scooter

not a whole lot of difference. .39 to an attribute instead of .35 and it costs quite a bit more. money's never a problem though so train as hard as you can while still getting back to 100% energy before the next game ... for most of my guys it's one relaxed and one normal, or one normal and one intense. if you're unsure, just set it to relaxed and leave it there to be safe.

nice game against FFAS by the way. as i've said, these games are going to continually get harder and if we dont have a centerfielder out there it's going to be a long day. we want our cb's to deflect every pass and the defensive line to get all the tackles, but with 4 of our last 6 games being against playoff teams, there'll be plenty of unwanted stats to go around.

If you look at our back up center, his other player is on a division rival team. Death Valley Asassins. I found out when I was about to give him a new contract at lvl 8. (needless to say I did not give him a bonus) I have never seen him post and I am wondering if he might give our gameplans away via the GLB forums.

I am posting here instead of the GLB forums for obvios reasons. I sent hardcore a message about it, then I got a message that he was given signing bonus and a contract. (hardcore) If anyone knows this guy or is he a TT board member let me know.

With the playoffs coming up we can't afford to let our gameplans get into opposing teams hands.

Scooter
05-20-2008, 03:11 AM
it hasnt hurt us yet so i'm not sure if we should drop him or not. i definitely wouldnt say anything to him though ... the last thing we'd want is to give him a heads up if we were to cut him. if we end up playing against them in the playoffs however i'd drop him in a heartbeat - they're the only team to really score on us.

a decision should be made soon though, i think we're almost out of time to make trades or sign players.

if he's a board member, that's a different story but i dont think that it is.

that's why i would NOT have written to him. making this a known matter gives him the opportunity to save any and all information on our forum. perhaps he's passing information - which could explain such a mediocre team being 7-5, but even if he werent he now is aware. cut him and do it quickly.

If we want to get rid of him, we should try to trade him if possible. We will need a backup G or C, as we still have AJ to fill one or the other. I would suggest trying to trade for a similiar level G.

If not, someone should get ready to build a back up G or C. I would be glad to do it, just give a little bit of a heads up first.

There is a good chance it is just coincidence he ended up in our conference, while I don't want to put ourselves at too much risk, he should get some benefit of the doubt, not being naive here, just trying to be fair. Plus it will hurt our chemistry.

Besides, he has had all the time in the world to save our gameplans, etc. already.

Well, it just sucks to be in this situation. Maybe we can send a message to Bort and ask them to check the DV Assaisins forum? If he has been spying and posting, I would think that would be against the rules somehow. Maybe they won't do it.

I have read in one of my other team's forum, they are not even posting the gameplan, just telling everyone how to set their tatics. They are saying the forums can be hacked pretty easily and that the Admins are trying to fix it. Don't know how true that is, but that's what the OC of the team said.

I don't understand why people just have to freaking cheat. Isn't it much more fun to gameplan and compete and see how the game turns out, much more satisfying to earn it. Freaking cheatin' losers. :loser

Here's the message I sent:



Hi,

I have a concern and I wanted to bring attention to it, in case either you have seen this before or perhaps may be new to you guys. I am the GM of the Houston Toro's. We have discovered our backup center, Samuel T. Bonecrusher, agent is Laurence of Arabia, plays for an opponent in our division. Mine and the other coaches concern is that he may be spying information from us and posting in his other teams forum, "Death Valley Assasains". This could very well be a coincidence that he just happened to have two of his players on these two teams. While we don't want to be paranoid, neither do we want to be naive. Is there any way you guys could just look at his team forum and see if he is posting and sharing our gameplans and such. We have a good chance to see them in the playoffs. We are a suspicious because he has never posted in our forums, never speaks out to his teammates and had never been inactive. Our owner sent him a message but we have not heard back.

All we want is a level playing field. It is shame to hear about some of the cheating that has happened and people trying to find a way to get ahead unfairly. This is a great game, a ton of fun, and very rewarding when you earn a win. I don't know if you had this question before, I am sure there is no problem having players in the same division as long as it is done with integrity.

Again, we have no way to know if he is loyal to the team or not.

Have you had any reports like this? Is there a precedence of what you guys will do in this situation? We really hope he is on the level, we want to keep him on the team and keep moving forward. But for some reason our gameplans are getting ripped off, that would just be terribly wrong.

thanks for any help and guidance you can offer,

Hey Hardcore, go ahead and sign your player to one of the D-league teams. You can't be traded to another team, and you will be able to develope your guy until needed. If you sign with a D-league team, you can be offered a contract from any human team, but it is up to you to accept the offer.

As far as the Bonecrasher goes, I believe you can bar him from viewing the team forums if it comes down to it. I really doubt he is passing on anything though. He was a member of the Toros before his other player joined Death Valley. When I signed him, there was no conflict, and now I hope it is just coincidence that his SS signed with Death Valley a couple games later.

Well in his reply he confirmed what Vtech described when he signed him. He stated that he never has given team gameplanning away to his other team. When hardcore gets a reply from the forum admins I think we can make a decision from that information. As for now, he will stay on the team at least to the playoffs. If we win out we won't be matched with DVA so i don't think it will be a large issue.

If it comes back that he did post info, well, we have to cut him. What makes me upset with that scenario is we can't even trade him due to the trade deadline.

on a side note, I did not know players could be offered contracts on d leagues, thanks for the heads up.

I am a little late on this topic. I had noticed this conflict of interest earlier in the season, but for some reason I didn't mention it. I doubt if the guy is a spy because that would be stupid and ridiculous.

If he is some sort of spy then couldn't we trade him after the season? He is under contract for a while. We could always pm the gameplan if need be. It's more likely that if we have spy's on our team then they are smart enough not to play for another team in our conference.

Who on our team is not a member of TT? I would love to see a list because it is hard to tell when some people have different user names on the different boards. Plus, some guys only post here and not there and vice versa.

RTP2110
05-23-2008, 08:28 AM
I agree. It seems a little to blatant to be a spy operation. There are convievable ways to go undercover with a 3rd team in a different league.

Example:
Agent A puts a player on Toros in BBB3 and another player on Team X in BBB1.
Agent B puts a player on Bulls in BBB3 and another player in the same Team X in BBB1.

Those two could trade Toros info on their Team X forum, but that seems like way to much work just to spy on one team.




Also, I'm RTMFNP on the GLB boards.

i'm first in line as far as overreacting, but "spy" is hardly the term and i was wrong in getting overly worked up about it. favoriting one team and sharing your other team's successful means is something different and is equally harmful, whether by accident or not. scourge makes a perfect example that it can be completely harmless and purely accidental, and from what we can tell it's the same way with this guy so my appologies for going straight to the guillotine. what i dont like is not knowing and it coming from an "outside" player. there are a couple of active guys who are on the forums (steele's owner for example) that i'd really like to keep around for next season, but i think it'd be in our best interest to try to make it more of a TT team this offseason.

Two of them are free agents this offseason, and one is on a long term contract, but may still be available because he is a speedy, agile DE on a team who is switching to a 3-4 next season. They may want to have more beefy DLinemen with the 3-4.

Scoot agrees about the QB issue, and pretty much agrees about Sha Nayney.

Reddcow/ SA Texan is going to talk to Sven and see what is up and agrees about Sha Nayney

Vtech agrees we should search for a higher level QB and bench Sven for now until we find one and play Ross. He also says we can develop Stephen Neal to fill both back up Guard spots if he agrees to follow the builds and is on board.



So at a minimum, all 4 of us agree about Sha Nayney and 3 out of 4 agree we need to make a change at QB for the reason mentioned in the PM.

this is an offensive evaluation so i'm mostly just a spectator here. i'm just not a fan of the inactivity and lack of involvement. it only takes 5 minutes every other day to log in and check the gameplan that someone else spent hours on. heck the player help threads take any guesswork out of assigning skill points if people need it. 90% of this team is very into it ... boosting, posting, keeping up with their players ... so it seems fitting that since that is the team's direction we need to try to make it 100%. it's a TT team so that comes first, but i'm not a nice enough guy to feel guilt towards folks when they're not part of the reason we made this team or helping to make it better.

this is an offensive evaluation so i'm mostly just a spectator here. i'm just not a fan of the inactivity and lack of involvement. it only takes 5 minutes every other day to log in and check the gameplan that someone else spent hours on. heck the player help threads take any guesswork out of assigning skill points if people need it. 90% of this team is very into it ... boosting, posting, keeping up with their players ... so it seems fitting that since that is the team's direction we need to try to make it 100%. it's a TT team so that comes first, but i'm not a nice enough guy to feel guilt towards folks when they're not part of the reason we made this team or helping to make it better.

Good way to put it Scoot.

And if you do need to be inactive for awhile, just let folks know and communicate with everyone to let them know your interested. All of the texanstalk guys are committed, good to go and on top of it.

DITTO...I wanted to trade Sha Nayney last season when he went inactive. Now that he's done it again, he's gone in my book. Now, I don't know what the deal is with Sven, I don't remember him going inactive before. I have to think there is something going on with him that keeps him away. Since he also has the Punter, if we trade or release him, we will have to find two replacements. I can do it, but it will take time and money, and I'm not sure if SA will be willing to dish out the kind of cash it would take.

I understand the conundrum for sure, Sven did go inactive last season at least twice, maybe 3 times and when I send him a PM, prolly at least 3 times in the past he takes a couple of days to get back to me. We just need him to be a lot more active and develop the attributes and equipment, I having doubts he is using all of his boosts throughout the season. I know SA knows him so maybe they can reach an understanding.

I will talk with sven to see where he is mentally with the game.

Another issue is Oso who owns glued trap. I think he has issues with me due to i wanted to trade him to a team he owns or GM's at the end of the season so he wanted to be released at the end of the year, I told him to at least let us do a trade so we could recoup some of the $$ we spent developing his WR. He was Very upset with that. either way he is gogin to be gone at teh end of the year so we are currently looking for a replacement for him as well.

oso's a bad seed. he's almost single handedly the reason psychonaut's team went from division champs to a middle of the pack team. i'd say make him trade for his guy and if nothing else, i havent used any boosts for owned yet so i could increase stamina to cover for him.

stephen neal might be a long term liability as the only backup without customs and the unsurity of boosting and remaining active. might not hurt to give him the chance though.

as for the quarterback situation, the ideal outcome would be kucuro staying on and hopefully being more active. the market is full of prima-donnas who want to hop from team to team. i say we try to bribe lethal dose and be done with it lol. this is most likely an offseason transaction because of the market, but it'd make a big impact if we had someone at quarterback who was active in scouting and preparing the position. heck if nothing else my quarterback will be level 14-16 next season (before season 4 boosts) if we want to go with ross now and develope for the future.

I've been looking for a WR to replace Oso, and I thought I found one, but he only wanted to sign until the end of the season. It's possible that he would have re-signed, but then again, it's most likely he wouldn't. If need be Oso will just have to wait it out until the offseason, and we can find someone then.

Who is lethal dose? Is that the QB for the Bulls? Bribe away.

I talked to Stephen Neal, and although he didn't say anything specific about buying custom equipment, he said he would get his weaknesses taken care of. Let's give him a chance, and if he doesn't work out, we can find someone else.

Good deal.


Any luck with Sven, SA? I am really considering playing Ross this game, if the CB's were not as good I would do it. What we need from Sven and Neal is commitment. Equipment upgrades, following the game plans, chiming in for player development, etc. Sven has some serious weakspots in his game, but if he was committed and turned it up a notch with his level he could close the gap quick. We have another game tomorrow that he prolly won't follow the tatics and it drives me freaking nuts. How can we know how the gameplans are working when people don't follow it. Especially the QB.

Ross has been nothing but on top of it and has not cried once about being the back-up. I think he deserves a shot if we are going to go a different direction, that is if he assures us he will boost, spend on equipment etc.

I am a little worried about Neal, he still has not did anything with his Level 8 custom equipment.

Hate to hear that about Oso, I had no idea, we don't need prima donnas though. Sounds like we need a WR, a Guard in the wings perhaps, and be on the look out for a high level QB. Is Sven even boosting? If we are going to be contenders, we need serious comittment at that position.

I think Right Tackle2 should back up the RG spot. Speed and agility are the two top abilities for RG. Neal has neither, RT2 is decent in both.

RT2 leads the team in pancakes,while getting half the snaps. I never have a problem getting back to 100% and I always check the offensive settings. And I have all three boosts left.

Plus he is a long term solution, we won't have to replace him next season.

At least give me a shot at it, if it doesn't work out we can replace me.

Hey I don't know if any of you have any room for one, or if you have a lower level team but I have a speedy level 9 elusive HB who is one of my farm guys and he is the 4th string HB on my current team. I'm trying to move him into a lower level team either as a starter or solid # 2 and my owner is completely cool with it he is just wanting cash in return. I keep my players fully boosted, fully equipped and keep up with training religiously. I'm not having any luck on the trading block over at GLB, so I thought I would try here.

That's a not a bad idea at all for the long term solution, I worry about your stamina being high enough. I know you are dedicated and boost though, plus your a tt.com member so that is ideal right there. Vtech has already talked to Neal about him modifying his build to suit both positions and it was offered up to him, so we should at least give it time to see how he performs and if he is up for the challenge. I think you should continue to delvelop RT 2 and level up naturally, and if we need him to take on the extra duty he will be poised to step in.

You are off to a good start with him, remember vision and agility are important to make use of his speed.

I wish we had room for him on the Houston Toros, especially since you are member here, but we already have 2 pretty high level HB's. Keep developing him and maybe sometime in the future we will have a need.

That is a very good idea, and almost exactly what I was thinking. However, I am still going to look for a OG that has Custom equipment and a better build. In the meantime, we can put RT2 as the 3rd RG. We'll see how his energy levels are after that and see how we need to adjust. Stephen Neal has told me he would take care of the weaknesses I pointed out to him, but I seriously doubt he will buy Custom equipment.

depending on whether or not neal can keep up, i like the idea of RT2 taking both spots. stamina would need to be 30-35 but he's got the speed, agility and run blocking tree to be a pulling guard. strength would have to be higher to match up against beefy nose tackles, but otherwise i think he could pull it off. i think he'd be best backing up both tackle positions, but we've already got jones over there who's keeping up with his player.

We are all sufferring from lack of free agents. There are more teams than players and players are demanding crazy contracts, we have targeted tons of guys and can't get anyone either.

If you want to shut your team down and come joing the Toros and the Texans we could probably find room for all your guys, you prolly don't want to do that I am guessing but it's getting too hard to have quality depth anymore.

And if we don't have more players join it's going to be hard to get better. Anyway, here's our teams:

Man as much as i'd like to, I really want to keep my team. I appreciate the offer though. You never know though, I may get frustrated to the point of doing just that, but as for now my plans are to keep my team intact. I have too many control issues...LOL. Good luck to you guys.

I figured you would want to keep your team but if any of the teams end up calling it quits we should combine them, however, I don't see any of us doing that anytime soon.

the free agent market has been horrible for us this year. And players such as Limas are most likely out of here in the offseason.

I am at the create a player thing

Choose your player name and position below. Please avoid curse words and racially offensive names. If you use these sorts of names, your player's name will be changed by admin staff.

Why would I want to create a non-glamour player? Glamour positions are often overloaded with too many players and not enough positions to fill. Non-glamour players are always in demand. If you want to be assured a spot on a good team, choose a non-glamour position such as Offensive Line or DT.

now i have to pick

Has anyone figured out how to get a level 40 or so corner on your team without giving away your first born and your right testicle?


My team:

http://goallineblitz.com/game/team.pl?team_id=4433


I had the luck of hooking up with another Texans fan who had several players that were close to my players level, otherwise my team would suck. Between the two of us we make up over half the starters.

Scooter
01-16-2009, 01:27 AM
sorry bud, a bigtime cornerback is going to cost your first born, right testicle, and an oath of obediance for 5 years. seriously, getting bigtime cornerbacks is near impossible so i just make my own lol. well built anything defensively at 40+ in free agency is pretty rare actually. at 7-0 you seem to be doing pretty well though!

Wolf, don't spend anymore of your skill points or boost yet. Just keep reading and learning in our forum, will help guide you through it. Saving all of your skill points is known as slow building, it's a tatic used to maximize your training to the fullest. Currently a bunch of us are slow building our guys for a couple of seasons, later on we will on get on the same team that one of our current members is in the queue to purchase. At some point we will spend all of our points (when in makes sense) and the players will be more advanced/stronger/better than others doing the traditional builds. So my advice for now, just keep saving your points, don't spend them. At the end of the current season you can boost 3 times, but shouldn't spend those points either.

Come post in our thread on the team forum, we will give you lots of advice, there is a lot of different ways you can do it. It's pretty detailed and a lot to sink in at first but once you get the hang of it you willl be off and running.

Wolf, whatever position you choose, there are going to be three or four attributes that you have no business training. You only get a certain number of attribute points at generation, spread among the different attributes. Re-roll at the very beginning until you get all of those worthless attributes to be 8. For instance, a DE has no business worrying about throwing, kicking, or punting. So when you create the player, you want all three of those to be at 8. Whatever the spread is on the other attributes is fine, since they'll need to be raised somewhat anyway.

Wolf
02-20-2009, 12:53 PM
what is "slow build"? Is that where I just keep saving training points up? or wait to use my level up attributes?

The "best" way to slow build is to save your SPs and train the attribute you want to increase until that attribute + your SPs = 48, 60, or 68, depending on how far you want to go.

You have access to the Toros forum right? Post a thread in there and we can help create a build plan for you players
