Match previews

Post by Cjackson94 » Fri Jul 31, 2020 8:48 pm

It’s been a week.... :ninja

At the moment on a match day there is no sort of preview to the upcoming match. You click on the match and it just gives the basic game details, time, pitch, weather e.t.c

What I was thinking was redoing the whole page by adding a proper preview to the match. There are loads of things that can be put on this page. For example:

Your player stats/ opponent player stats.
This could be like top run scorers and wicket takers for your side and your opponents.

Recent match ratings
This could be a list of your/opponents recent match ratings in the division.

Form
Players in form and out of form

Ground changes
Lists the recent pitches used

Recent matches
Your/opponents recent matches in the division


These are just a few off the top of my head I’m sure there could be others. You could even add a spot for managers comments, for example a user could say “Good luck” or say something about his side for the other manager to see.

Plenty of ways to play around with this. Don’t know what would be a member only feature or not, that’s for you guys to decide.

Would love to hear people’s thoughts. I’ll come up with a new (possibly daft) idea next week :thumbsup

I do like this idea mate.

Will run it by the team to see if we can plan it in someway with the re-design. If I remember correctly there has been plans to have more information for users displayed across the new design.

I think this idea has a lot of potential :thumbsup

All this information is readily available to the manager who wishes to spend time and effort to find and use it. The game has done away with star players who now all really will all look the same after training. Don't nerf good management as well.

I think the whole point of it is to spruce it up just like every tv, radio and online broadcast of every game, they go through inform players, key players, players to watch and recent games, it will add a whole lot more to the visual effect of game day.

Really like the idea mate good work.

Part of it is on the rivalry page but I agree we could improve it a little and add recent form etc
I also like the idea

I wouldn't want all the scouting done for us though. Needs to be a balance. Perhaps make it (or part of it) a members only feature?
Back again for a second go at this game, link to team here. All aboard the Image bandwagon this time!

I'm used to wasting hours on Excel even though I lose most of my matches but I don't mind overviews.

To be honest, I assumed this screen would only be viewable right before the game gets going, I don't think I've ever looked at the details page before a match.

If I want to scout, I go look at older games and the squad in general? I suppose I understand why people won't want scouting to be simplified; if this would ultimately result in that then maybe worth considering what is shown...
