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:

Well, with looking at the other teams in the league, I think we are going to start off much better than them anyway.

I really don't mind spending some time on it. Hell, I have been on it for hours already. It would just be hard for me to Know what time of which days I can be on. But it looks like a lot of fun and I can't wait for the Houston Toros to start ripping it up.

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 dont think so, boosting seems to still be going on for season 1 and the resets are coming sometime tonight or tomorrow when they reactivate training and paychecks. also, if you have any plans on stadium upgrades you have to do it before the resets or just wait until next offseason.

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 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.

Yep. All boosting after 4-20-08 will count against Season 2 if I read this right.

that was initial plan, but things changed when they were trying to get the new teams added. Bort and Digital Daggers posted it in one of their updates, but I don't remember which one.

You're right. If you scroll to the bottom of this link it says the same:

http://goallineblitz.com/game/forum_...id=2262&page=1


This is huge, we should all level up as much as possible before the seasons starts tomorrow.

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.
