Training Mode

One thing that would be really nice is some kind of a training mode. There is one already, but it has no opponents at all. What i would want is an option to play a match without time. You play against a team of a certain difficulty (chosen at will) and basically just practice.

When you exit out of the game, the state is automatically saved for you, so i don't thing this one is really necessary. Of course, no one should be able to save and load in the middle of a match in order to correct a mistake or get another shot at a team.

I have a few ideas. 1. On larger maps, it gets really tedious to have to move your man to capture each new hexagons. So how about having hotkeys so that pressing one selects the nearest knight, baron, spearman, or peasant (one that can still move of course). This way, you don't have to click back an...

OH, and keep an eye out for INTERCEPTS INTERCEPT - when two dinos are running along the passing trajectory towards that little x on the map ( Dino1-> Dino2-> x), the dino behind (Dino1 in this case) sometimes catches the ball prematurely, causing him to be instantly tackled by the other dino. I had ...

The two rules apply at all times. What you see are master plays that the AI does (not intentionally). What happens is that a dino catches the ball and an opposing dino charges him almost at the same instant, winning the tackle. Another thing it could be are intercepts. This happens when two dinos ar...

By the way, what is the most you ever beat the AI by in a match? My best is 11 - 0 against Bash Bash, when we scored every 16 seconds or so using almost exactly the same play. Theoretically, you could score 13 goals in a match, but that means scoring consistently every 13-14 seconds. Edit: I have se...

Ok, relax y'all. Sab, computer doesn't cheat. Yes, sometimes the AI makes donkey mistakes, but opposing teams do them too. Sometimes it makes phenomenal plays, sometimes it sucks. Sometimes it is simply bad luck when ur guy catches a ball, and is instantly tackled by a dino near him. As such, it is ...

My best streak is 7 wins in a row. But ever since i improved in my game, i win about 66% of the time. My dinos sometimes play a terrible game against either Mammoths of Jurassic Steel, and usually those teams take the title.

The computer does this too, so don't think that you are in an unfair position. Even the top teams make this mistake, it just the way they are programmed. Learn to exploit it.

Speeds don't really change across the teams. The way the field is shown, running across the long diagonal may seem faster than the short, but they are actually the same length. Still, it seems more difficult to catch dinos going "upfield", that is across the shorter diagonal. My dinos seem to lose m...

My formation is the 1-3-1

I have had good success with this one, playing as right winger. That position seems to be most conducive to performing master plays (see my post Winning Tips to see what i mean).

I Agree. Granted, sometimes the AI makes donkey mistakes, it emulates real life, in that one player cannot win the whole match no matter how good he is, if his team sucks.

Winning Tips

Hey, this is my first post. Football-a-saurus is a surprisingly fun game once you get used to it. After having played 47 seasons so far, I have 24 titles, with The Mammoths at 8, and Jurassic Steel at 7. Jagged Tooth have 4, and there are several more with 1. I have seen many posts of people complai...
