WHO NEEDS WHAT?
  • Kaisayr Need:
    Some shots would be nice  
  • Asteria Kromatos Need:

    To score more goals - defensively we're pretty good for a mid-table team.

I total understand you Jon.  It is a problem with these games.  Rewarding the achievers and making them strongr is tough.  They are already benefitting from better gates and morale and then to top it off with a CP or Cash.  However the benefit diminished somewhat at the goo.......................

Brian Beerman - May 10th 2018 18:15

I agree - no need to make a change to the MVP code. (See David King's for more details)

David King - May 9th 2018 11:37

The first few MVPs are the best. Most teams can normally expect two in a season whether by design or accident.

The latter rewards are 25k. Cash is always nice to get but the teams winning these MVPs are probably doing pretty we!l all round.

At season end and into pre-seas.......................

Jon,

I get what you are saying and i agree that better teams do get more incentives (extra gate receipts from bonuses too) but i don't think the MVP's need to be touched. Plus i would imagine it would be a complete nightmare to code what you suggest.

Bill Ramsay - May 8th 2018 7:59
I think that the sliding scale of rewards for MVPs takes care of this balance alongside league status. By MVP number 4 the reward is average. If you have such a poor team that you cannot achieve an MVP in the league you are in then relegation and rebuilding should allow you this chance next season. .......................

Match 8
Old Colony F.C. v Kaisayr 
Ooh, this is going to be a challenge. Not sure our defense can keep up for 90 minutes.
I expect the training staff will increase training sessions this week.
Quaffers fans are eager to start up this cup. The club made the semifinals last season
and fans are hoping they can do even better this year.
