[New Feature] Player Talents

Post by FTP-ashario » Thu Jan 03, 2008 8:04 am

Version 41 will introduce the concept of player talents. Player talents are basically specific attributes a player possesses that can make them perform better than normal in certain situations. All players in FTP will be given one or two talents. Talents have been introduced to add a little more variety to your players, and to add another strategic aspect to the game.

Talents can be classified into two main categories, passive talents and triggered talents. This post gives a short description of each available talent.

Passive Talents
These talents are skills that are thought to be always in effect. For example, a player with the talent Skilled(Batting) will receive a bonus to his batting ability during the entirety of his innings.

Skilled (Batting) Receives a bonus to batting skill during matches
Skilled (Bowling) Receives a bonus to bowling skill during matches
Skilled (Keeping) Receives a bonus to keeping skill during matches
Skilled (Technique) Receives a bonus to technique skill during matches
Skilled (Power) Receives a bonus to power skill during matches

Gifted (Endurance) Trains in endurance faster than normal
Gifted (Batting) Trains in batting faster than normal
Gifted (Bowling) Trains in bowling faster than normal
Gifted (Technique) Trains in technique faster than normal
Gifted (Power) Trains in power faster than normal
Gifted (Keeping) Trains in keeping faster than normal
Gifted (Fielding) Trains in fielding faster than normal
Prodigy Trains faster in all skills while in the youth squad

Natural Leader Receives a bonus to captaincy skill during matches

Sturdy Recovers from fatigue faster than normal

Opener Performs better than normal when batting at the start of an innings
Finisher Performs better than normal when batting at the end of an innings
Spin Specialist Performs better than normal when batting against spin bowlers
Seam Specialist Performs better than normal when batting against seam bowlers

New Ball Bowler Performs better than normal when bowling at the start of an innings
Old Ball Bowler Performs better than normal when bowling at the end of an innings

Safe Hands Never fails a fielding related skill check during a match

Triggered Talents
These talents are special skills that have a small chance of occurring, or 'triggering', during a delivery in a match. For example, a player with the Yorker talent can occassionally bowl an almost unplayable yorker that has a much higher chance than normal of dismissing a batsman.

Wrongun Particularly skilled at bowling a wrongun, which is delivery that spins in the opposite direction compared to a wrist spinner's standard delivery
Flipper Particularly skilled at bowling a flipper, which is delivery that is faster than normal and skids straight on after pitching
Doosra Particularly skilled at bowling a doosra, which is delivery that spins in the opposite direction compared to a finger spinner's standard delivery
Slower Ball Particularly skilled at bowling a disguised slower ball
Swing Particularly skilled at swing bowling
Bouncer Particularly skilled at bowling a faster and well directed bouncer
Yorker Particularly skilled at bowling a yorker, a delivery that bounces at the popping crease, or near the feet of the batsman
Arm Ball Particularly skilled at bowling an arm ball, a delivery that goes straight on after pitching without turning.

Accumulator When batting, more likely than normal to be able to turn what would normally be a dot ball into a single or two runs
Boundary Hitter When batting, the ability to occassionally turn a delivery that would otherwise be a dot ball into a four or six.
