Vice-Captain

Post by werdo64 » Wed May 13, 2020 5:44 am

Hi There,

I just thought it would be good to be able to select a Vice-Captain for games. Both to help improve the captaincy of players who will take over the full captaincy in seasons time, and as a way of improving captaincy on another player.

It could also be used so that high captaincy from your Vice Captain allows better fields to be set, and bowling orders to be slightly more effective at taking wickets or containing runs.

Just a thought.

Thanks,

I like the idea.

I know that other players captaincy does currently help even if only a tiny amount, yet picking a vice captain would be a great idea.

As you say it could help towards that players captaincy skill a little, plus maybe it could help more than currently(Not sure how the ME currently works out how the rest of the players captaincy helps) while reducing the help the rest of the players captaincy skill gives(even if a tiny amount now)

It's a simple idea that would improve the realism somewhat.

Perhaps a (small) bonus to captaincy for a match win?

In what way do you mean, if they win they get more?

I'm guessing that's what Gunner means, although I wouldn't be overly keen on bonuses for every win.Although maybe small bonuses for wins when the team is heavily out rated.

Yes. Or maybe tie it in to supporter mood for a less direct way to tie wins to captaincy.

So when the training comes around you use the supporter mood to give a bit of a boost to those who captained in the previous week. Happy supporters = happy captain?



I guess the main point is, if you try to add a real life element to it, other than the quality of the match (which is already considered) what other factors see a captain develop quicker? That's where the discussion should start from in my opinion

It would be good to build on this with the possibility of announcing a senior and youth captain for the season.

Maybe a place where when it goes onto your homepage you can have mentioned who your team captains are?

and what if you want to sell the guy or bring in someone new who is a better captain?

ok. I misunderstood that as we need to announce a captain for the entire season at start of season.

Sounds good. Would love to have the skipper (and VC) name displayed somewhere
