For those who might not have seen our other thread, I wanted to start a new one for us to discuss this team specifically. We are recruiting people from this MB for this fantasy game. We wanted and all Texanstalk team, but with so many spots to fill, that's not going to happen. But there are all a good number of us on the team and we need more.

Come sign up, the season is around the corner and we need players at almost every position. We are beginners, therefore we don't have tons of money, not that you need it any. But we have the chance to build a great team for the long haul with dedicated, active players.

You can sign up through this referral link and we can rotate it to the next person so everyone gets free flex points.

Our team is called the Houston Toros.

Come join us.

Now where talking. Let me check and I will tell you what we need the most.

We REALLY need an OT and a TE. With boosting and leveling up a lot of improvements are immediate. There will be plenty of playing time for everybody.

On offense we also need WR and OG and a back up QB.

On defense we REALLY need DT, DE, LB, SS. And depth is needed at those positions and CB.

Again, playing time will be plenty for all.

Okay, go for WR, we can't even sign a WR, they are acting like prima donnas over there. Which is funny just two weeks ago there weren't even enough teams for everybody and people were begging to be signed. That's why it is important to build a team from the ground up and work together.


We also need DE's and OT's badly, but we need players everywhere.

damn...i already created a fs for the team and got signed...if you come over, i fear my playing time is over.

The key to this game is depth. My first player is a Center, and we won our conference championship before losing in the Super Bowl. I am a backup, but during the season, I kept my STA up, leveled, and averaged as many plays a game as he did. By the time the playoffs rolled around, I was caught up in level (not quite a full level down), and my slightly different build complemented his. I got a few more plays in during the playoffs than the starter did, and together, our center position was very close to the league lead in pancakes - might have led, can't recall.

Anyway, the point is, we're going to need quality depth to win. By the time the second half rolls around, the stamina bars and energy bars are falling, and we'll need fresh legs to step in and play. Keep your stamina raised, and you'll see plenty of playing time, which translates to XP that can be used to further level up.

Okay guys, after a quick eval of our roster. Here's what we need:

Offense - Immediate needs:
(2) OT, (2) TE, (1) K

for good depth:
WR, G

Defense immediate needs:

(2) DT, (2) SS, (2) LB

Good depth,
DE

Remember back-ups basically split playing time with starters, We have to have good Depth if we are going to win.

Attn**** OL and DL:
We need you guys to level up as much as possible, train hard, and build stamina. It all starts up front and since we want to be a strong running team we have to have good blocking OL.

Thanks to all!

C, G, OT, WR, SS, FS, QB

I can't stress enough that the "starters" will see about the same playing time as the back-ups. We need good depth all the way around, with peopl working hard to up there guys levels, boost when you can, and train hard.

We are well on our way to having a very tough team. Thanks to all the people who have joined, you guys are making the difference.

when does the season start????

Probably Saturday.

I've noticed that most everyone is planning on boosting 3 levels immediately once the season starts, but I think it would be wise to hold off until later in the season. The lower your level, the more experience you get for games and training. Which means you will level up faster. If we make the playoffs without boosting, it will make us so much tougher when we use all of our boosts at playoff time.

Well you can look at it like this. Do you boost early and help your team sooner, or boost later and help your team later. Some people opt to boost later because they plan on only staying with the team for 1 year and it will be easier to get on a higher ranked team that way, those that boost and stay with their teams are doing so in preperation for the next season.

How much time does this game take up? Would you have to be present at your pc for games at certain times of the week? How long does a season last?

The games are simulated (simm'd) every time there is a game at gametime. After which you can go in and watch play by play replays and see how your player performs at your leisure.

You only need a few minutes every day or every other day to set your training and attend to your player. However if you want to watch your unit's plays, check on what needs improved, and discuss tatics/strategy you can spin much more time. All in all, hopefully everyone is involved a few minutes a day to help develope their player. Good communication is key, with the DC, OC, and Owner about the scheme and what we are trying to do.

I can not stress enough that OL and DL need to build strenght, stamina, and level up. It all starts up front as they say.

I agree with Brandon, since we are in it for the long haul we have time to level up through XP points, but we want to start of strong and we should stay ahead of the pack. JMHO.

As far as training, I would pick a few key PHYSICAL attributes to most of the time increase on with skill points and train for the less important ones.

Like for a WR, spend your skill points on receiving ability, speed, stamina, hands. Train on the other stuff, etc. hope that make sense. If not check out this link, it provides a good idea of how to go about it:

There is still time for everyone to boost now before season 2 starts. Once season 2 starts, you can boost 3 more times for that season. The problem with using all of your boosts early, is that you won't be able to boost if needed later. It's your player, so you can do what you want. All I am saying is that I think we are going to be very competitive early, and if we are, we will be better off if we save our boosts until they are needed. If we use all of our boosts early, we may start out better than other teams, but if they save their boosts, they can level up naturally and actually pass us by at the end of the season. Like I said, it's your player. I'm just giving suggestions and my opinion. Do with it what you wish.

It seems pretty obvious to me that the best long term strategy would be the one you are advocating. I have never played before but just looking at the numbers, it seems quite clear that it is advantageous to wait on your boosts.

But that only works if we are sure we can compete and get into the playoffs without leveling up our players.

They way I understand it, if you boost now it counts as a season 2 boost. In other words I think we only get to boost 3 times between now and the end of season 2 not 6 times total. Just the way I understand it.

No...Season 2 doesn't start until tomorrow, so all boosts done today are credited to season one. After today, they will go towards season 2

I boosted 3 times in Season 1 with a TE I have on a different team. And then I boosted him again during the offseason and it said I only have a total of 3 until the end of Season 2.

Okay, disregard that. My TE from season 1, I can not do anything to. But the CB created during the offseason was allowed to boost during this offseason. We will find out tomorrow when the season starts whether I can boost him, but I suspect since he was created after season 1 his boosting will count against season 2.

I boosted 3 times in Season 1 with a TE I have on a different team. And then I boosted him again during the offseason and it said I only have a total of 3 until the end of Season 2.

I boosted my FS all three times in season one, and I can't boost again until season 2 starts.

Same with my TE from season 1. So either players created AFTER season 1 or being boosted (such as my CB) and counted as Season 1 or their boosting will count against the total of 3 we are allowed during season 2.

as long as the boosting is done today or prior, it counts towards season one. It doesn't matter when you created your player. I've created a few in the past couple days, and boosted them all to lvl 4. Once the new season starts tomorrow, I will have 3 boosts I can use. I might use one boost early, but will most likely save the others until closer to the end of the season depending on how the season goes.

Prolly not. You can only level up by boosting 3 teams during the season. The rest you have to earn by XP points which only are given for playing time or off days between games when the season is active. Every time you get to 1000 points you level up and get 5 more skill points.

you still have two more boosts that you can do before tomorrow. To boost your player up to lvl 4, you will need 400 flex points. If you don't have the flex points needed, you will have to buy them or just let your player level up naturally.

You are going to need to focus his daily training on agility, strength and confidence. Agility is pretty important for a FS. Strength is also important, so you don't miss tackles. Confidence is important for everyone, because it effects your players morale. The lower your confidence level the faster your morale will go down. As your morale goes down, your player plays worse and worse.

Don't worry too much about the special abilities yet, because until the higher levels, they really don't effect your play too much. The next time you level up, focus on your physical abilities.

The best way to increase your confidence is with daily training. Use the skill points you receive from leveling up on your vision and other physical abilities. You don't need to boost if you don't want to, but if you do boost tomorrow, only boost once. Save your other two boosts for later when we might need them.

Just remember, everything I'm telling you is my opinion of what you should do based on what I have read and learned so far from playing this game. It is your player, so you still need to do what you feel is best. If you want my opinion, just ask and I will tell you what I think.

i'd actually train vision. mario needs to turn on his stats as a comparison, but tony-wan looks to be more of a RDE ... i'd keep working on his physical stats when you level up (speed, agility, tackling). unless our team just really sucks (i highly doubt it) and you're missing tackles left and right (again i doubt it), you really dont have to worry too much about confidence.

i'll throw my hat in the DC ring also, it's what i did with my last team. whoever ends up in that spot needs to remember that team tactics are only a small part of it - you have to make sure that everyone is setting up their players to match what the team's trying to do. for example - DE's in pass rush, cornerbacks in man coverage tight and aggressive, lb's focusing on run, etc. scouting opponents is also crucial.

I have some long days at work so later this evening so i have been doing work on the team early morning or after I get off.

We are focusing on a 60% run 40% pass to start the season. I believe we have one of the better teams in the conference so I believe we will make a good push to tehplayoffs.

We have a good start as all our starting positions are filled but if anyone new wants to join please do because we still need alot of depth. We really need 3 more LB's,couple of DT's, 2-3 WR's , cb's , ect..

As a back up you still get alot of playing time due to changes they made to the game of players getting

Vision is very important for a CB, you need to bring that up. It will also serve you well to train on tackling, strength, and confidence.

What do you guys know about custom equipment? I bought a booster pack for ten bucks and it gave me 1200 flex points (I just couldn't stand being the worst player on the team). It only took 600 for 3 level ups. Since I can only level up once a season I should be able to level up next year from my xp points, I think.

So long story short, should I use my remaining 600 points on some custom equipment or is there a reason that I am not seeing to hold on to my points until later?

BTW, the new season has already started right?

the custom equipment can be used to add up to 6 points of attributes to your player. It's similar to what you would do with your skill points when you level up. With that one piece of equipment you can add a point to any six attributes you want to increase. You could put +2 in strength, +1 in vision, or whatever you wanted. You could even put all 6 in one attribute if you wanted to. The only thing is that it will cost you 100 flex points for each point you add to your attributes. If you think you are weak in a certain area or two. It could really help you out.

lost the OG before I could get him posted here, but the level 3 LB is still unsigned.

Feliz Navidad (http://goallineblitz.com/game/player.pl?player_id=261944)

the LB is now off the market...missed another one.

I had a level 2 DE contact me about a backup role, but I told him he would have to wait until the morning. If he is still available in the morning, his player link is:

Custom equipment is well worth it. I have custom on each of my guys, usually with +6 STA.

Your avatar is making me ill :(

Thanks, the +6 STA is a good idea I think. I was planning on putting all the points in one attribute and I hear stamina is the most important attribute. With that said, looking at my player I really do have a few weak areas as Vtech said. So I might spread the points. Guess I will have to sleep on it.

As far as the avatar, I laugh every time I see that picture. He looks like a blithering idi ot with his stupid hair and that **** eating grin on his face. It just reminds me how such a jackass can have such a highly touted position in an organization. Never trust the guy making decisions for you is what it says to me. But you are right I can see that the picture bothers people and I think I will retire it.

From what you have now, if it was my player, I would add +2 speed, +2 agility, +1 vision, and +1 to either stamina or tackling

I agree except for the speed. I am already the fastest LB on the team so I think the points might be better used elsewhere. I am also the worst tackler on the squad so I am thinking about beefing that 2-3 points.

you may be the fastest on the team, but not as fast as your player needs to be. Just remember, you will probably have to cover that LVL 8 TE from the other team.

Ouch didn't think too much about coverage. I believe I heard HC Texan say that we want run stopping LB's, so that was basically the way I built my guy. Plus we have a pretty good secondary.

The lvl 8 TE is a one game thing, I am not going to build my player around covering one guy in one game. Most teams have mediocre to bad TE's.

I am not saying you are wrong but just trying to see all the angles.

lol...you will also need speed to chase down those speedy RB's when they run outside. I think our DL is going to stiff enough to shut down the middle running game, but the LB's will need to help on the outside.

In this game, we are supposed to set everything to stop the pass.

In this game as in GLB or this game against the Longhorns? You have swayed me to at least use a point on speed but if I run an RB down and don't tackle them then the speed is useless. I mean I have never played this game but I think I should beef up my tackling before anything else.

the team focus for this game against the Longhorns is going to be defend the pass first.

Actually, I think you are a little stronger than you need to be, but that's ok...You can build up your tackling and other attributes as you go along. One of the threads in our team forum has a link to another thread that will tell you where to fucus your training. It covers every position, so before you buy your custom equipment, find that thread and read it. That will help you out the most.

As for me...I'm going to bed...catch ya tomorrow.

eriadoc
04-26-2008, 10:02 AM
Re: Custom Equipment, I would recommend +6 to a single stat. The reasoning behind this is that as a stat gains levels, it is harder to raise that stat with training. So it is better to raise primary stats with flex points, and then train the secondary stats that are lower. Conversely, boosting a lower stat that you just couldn't get to with flex points might be valuable (hence my choice of STA). However, spreading the points across three stats or more is not going to yield a significant benefit like stacking those points would.

it couldnt hurt to give the SS a shot. as he levels up he could play several backup roles (SS, FS, CB - if you work on coverage attributes) and push CPU players off the roster, and we can always find a spot on special teams.

seriously he's about perfect, but all that blocking goes to waste when our 47 speed runningback beats our 8 speed fullback to the line of scrimmage. you're going to block, you're going to break tackles ... we need straight line speed at the second level to slow up linebackers. and we need speedy to work on his stamina, vision, & strength to stay on the field behind ya.

Yeah, I am approaching that from two directions. First, I am working on speed with Truck, especially since he's getting a few carries. Second, I am working on Vision with Wheels, as I hope that will help him set up blocks before he takes off.

My first couple players in season one were more balanced in attributes, and I found that the players who specialized in just a couple attributes did better in the short term, and they built up their deficient attributes through training and leveling. So that's the approach I decided upon with the backs. They'll only get better as the season wears on.

Scooter

you've got a pair of studs, there's no doubt. speedy and truck are going to be reason 1 and 2 for us making the playoffs. they have to work together though and they have to stay on the field. truck is being overrun before he even makes the line of scrimmage. everything for the next two levels, including training, needs to go towards speed considering who he's blocking for. watch the replays, truck's barely blocking the quarterback while if he were part of the attack would be putting speedy at one to beat on several plays.

speedy is maxed. we need him on the field for more plays. stamina and strength need to get involved in the mix.

04-27-2008, 02:22 AM
we'd love to see speedy returning kicks, but we have to keep him on the field at runningback first. special teams is something that we're going to work on for this next game. depending on the feedback in the stamina post on our forum, i'd love to add human players and higher level CPU's to the special teams which would also add to stats. stats dont affect level points, but they obviously look good and as i told hardcore in our special teams discussions, those few yards either way can make a big difference kicking fieldgoals. we absolutely need Speedy to increase his stamina though. we're going to drop substitution levels but we need all starters at 20 stamina or more. i'm going to watch our kick returns and a few other teams' tomorrow because with any luck we can break one off with enough blocking.

i'm not the offensive coordinator, but IMO our primary concern right now is maximizing our rushing attack. vision, strength and stamina for speedy, and all speed for truck.

read the strategy forums folks. EVERYONE should be set to "normal - play intensity". i'll say it again, mind your player ... team strategy is a minority - you control how good your player is in the system. TRAINING INTENSITY should be whatever keeps you at 100% energy for the next game, and for right now everyone should be at NORMAL - PLAY INTENSITY.

it takes 1 minute to make an impact, and no time at all to screw the deal for everyone. for example - if we're throwing everyone at run defense and your linebacker is set to pass defense, the TEAM is in trouble. if we're in a tight man coverage and safe tackling (as now) and your cornerback is trying to force fumbles and jumping interceptions, we're going to give up 50+ yard touchdowns, if we're at 70% rushing and you're pass blocking we're going to see plenty of fumbles. this is why we wanted a TT.com team. trust, fun, gaming, and football fanatics. this is us, this is OUR team. we'll post here and there so as not to inconvenience anyone and keep everyone involved.

we'd love to see speedy returning kicks, but we have to keep him on the field at runningback first. special teams is something that we're going to work on for this next game. depending on the feedback in the stamina post on our forum, i'd love to add human players and higher level CPU's to the special teams which would also add to stats. stats dont affect level points, but they obviously look good and as i told hardcore in our special teams discussions, those few yards either way can make a big difference kicking fieldgoals. we absolutely need Speedy to increase his stamina though. we're going to drop substitution levels but we need all starters at 20 stamina or more. i'm going to watch our kick returns and a few other teams' tomorrow because with any luck we can break one off with enough blocking.

i'm not the offensive coordinator, but IMO our primary concern right now is maximizing our rushing attack. vision, strength and stamina for speedy, and all speed for truck.

read the strategy forums folks. EVERYONE should be set to "normal - play intensity". i'll say it again, mind your player ... team strategy is a minority - you control how good your player is in the system. TRAINING INTENSITY should be whatever keeps you at 100% energy for the next game, and for right now everyone should be at NORMAL - PLAY INTENSITY.

it takes 1 minute to make an impact, and no time at all to screw the deal for everyone. for example - if we're throwing everyone at run defense and your linebacker is set to pass defense, the TEAM is in trouble. if we're in a tight man coverage and safe tackling (as now) and your cornerback is trying to force fumbles and jumping interceptions, we're going to give up 50+ yard touchdowns, if we're at 70% rushing and you're pass blocking we're going to see plenty of fumbles. this is why we wanted a TT.com team. trust, fun, gaming, and football fanatics. this is us, this is OUR team. we'll post here and there so as not to inconvenience anyone and keep everyone involved.

Good post and I totally agree. The Team Forum at GLB is our friend. :)

Why are we dropping our substitution levels?

The reason our plays per person are askew is because our offense dominated TOP. Speedy has less plays then he should because he was set to hard instead of Normal. I think our stamina settings were fine its just we played ... too well.

Hey Scooter, I sent a low offer to a LVL 1 CB that hasn't used any of his skill points yet. If he signs, I told him to contact you on the team forum on where to use his SP's. He already knows he will be a backup, so set him up like you want if he signs).

the reason to drop substitution levels is to eliminate CPU players and increase experience as well as our chance to win games. we'd much rather set training to relaxed and play more downs on normal than have cpu players screw the pooch on our hard work (see our next opponant's 63-0 win if you want CPU players). the goal is to maximize our potential, keep human players in the game as long as possible, and create the best tactics. again and again ... if player tactics match team tactics we can beat anyone. the team we're going against this week had their substitution levels at zero and they beat a crappy CPU team by an insane margin. we're going to take our talent, our depth, and our strategy to overpower their overconfidence and poor planning.

we cant adjust CPU tactics so unless CPU players are a very high level, they're a HUGE liability. this is the reason i asked for all players to report their energy status so that we can have caveman opening up holes for 60 plays instead of john doe cpu getting speedy caught for a loss while we sit and watch. every low level CPU player off of our team increases our talent and income.

will do vtech. after the last game and minor discussion, i wouldnt mind a few outside human players who are interested in special teams duties if you can find them. speed/tackling, or agility/blocking being top priorities.

with the outrageous contracts some of these idiots are giving out, it is really hard to get these players to accept what we're offering.

no doubt, i've seen it myself. there are a ton of level 1's asking for more than my level 9's on a pro league championship team makes. i feel bad about saying it, but i look forward to almost half of these new teams folding because owners threw billions at level 3 players.

IMO the person means more than the player. we could use a ton of depth, even if it's on special teams (which makes it's fair share of stats). we need a 7+ quarterback, but other than that i'd be very selective on who we accept. we've got the talent - i'd much much rather be a subtle team than a bell ringing "bring out your dead!" type team. the stamina changes arent as bad as i thought they'd be so we wont be in panic mode this season and until we put the numbers together might actually be strong as is. we can be selective - right now we're the second team in USA BBB3, and in less than 40 hours we'll be the top team. that will be our selling point. we dont need players just to play, we want to have players who fit the system (football fans, willing to work towards team goals as a backup or starter or special teamer or any combo, and able to boost, etc). similar to boss's post about a defensive end ... i dont want to see us settle or overpay for a player.

edit: as i said on the forums ... i celebrated with whiskey so some or all of tonight might be edited (so please dont quote me). i'll begin more research tomorrow.

If I go after a LVL 7 QB, he will want to be the starter, and that will push down our board members that own the other QB's. I thought we didn't want to do that.

I will talk to our QB and see if we can get him to boost, He is a cool guy and will probally boost. I will ask him to get with someone with more xp at QB to help him put the points in the correct catagories.

The problem is i will not talk to him till monday or tuesday night. I agree with Vtech, I would rather try to keep the players within the TT.com aura of influence.

I think we will be ok for now. If we start losing, then we can have him boost. I still think we will win most of our games as we are. The only one I really see a problem with is this next one, but it is only one game. It would be nice if we could boost the backup a little though. That way, we wouldn't have much drop off when the backup comes in.

I have just signed a backup OC and a backup OT...both are LVL 1 players. Along with the backup fullback I signed yesterday, we are getting close to filling out the team. Let's help them get better.

Hey guys, take a look at the roster and give me your opinion on what position we need the most. I can make another player and boost him to level 4. I'm thinking about creating a CB, but if you think we need another position more, I'll make that instead.

right now we've got the least amount of depth at guard and linebacker. if you go defense, i'd say linebacker or cornerback (you can never have enough of either one).

Bubbajwp has created a LVL 2 LB, and we have a contract offer out to him, so that will give us one more LB as soon as he accepts the contract.

Bubbajwp has accepted his contract, so we really only need one more backup LB.

Frank Okam Jr. looks to have the better build. Are you going to keep both of them?
I got an email from another guy on GLB with a LVL 1 DT, but if you are going to keep both of them, we might as well use them.
