Best performers step forward!

Post by Mangin » Mon Apr 10, 2006 3:32 am

Anyone here able to beat the top division every single time now? I'm nowhere near this stage yet btw.

Since your team's performance also depends on your four team mates, I should think there'd be more elements out of your control and hence a higher chance that even the best players can fail to win sometimes?

I've stopped playing this (waiting for new version/updates) but I was winning div 1 about 75% of the time. I think my best div 1 winning streak was 8 seasons in a row, but I'd be a bit rusty now.

Yep, every single time.

I stopped playing when the tackling system changed.

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.

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 seen 11 second goals, though it has to be almost perfect. So you could score 16 goals, though I doubt that anyone would be that lucky.

Yes, I believe after too much time spent on playing this game, a human can win consistently every time in Div 1.

My best ever record was a 37-0 season winning all 5 games, however I can only really play with a 1-3-1 formation as the central defender and always staying with the opposition striker. Other formations where I would play further up the ground will generally concede far more goals and be less consistent.

After a while the patterns of the different teams structures become predictable however, so learning typical moves to carry the ball into space, draw a defender while backpedalling to free open a teammate do give a consistent ability to score. Defensively I would usually concede on average 1 goal per game (5-7 a season) due to passing mistakes by my ai controlled teammates or by myself - so consistent perfection is impossible (as all sports in real life are). I love playing against teams who play the aggressive 3-1-1 structure as I play a sweeper position behind my defenders who man up with their 3-man attacking line and switch when one of my teammates leaves his man to tackle the ball carrier when I am playing defence.

Most difficult to score unsurprisingly is playing against a 1-1-3 defensive team. A lot of patient passing is required as essentially it becomes a 5-4 game with their one striker sitting up the ground ready to pounce on any mistakes.

I would love a world cup edition of this game with countries in the current world cup included (team uniform colours of course) to add a bit of extra spice given the lack of changes to this game since Sean's last update.

Any chances Sean?
