Hi,

Last time I played this game while a college student in 2008. Few of us signed up together, but none survived due to FM. Time was limited, had to chose either FM or FTP, so FM won. Recently read about the death of FTP-Ash, felt very sad. Really liked him, thought he was a genius who could surely have helped me go through math in college :) His memory brought me back again, to give it a 2nd try. Found FTP really hard last time around. Thinking of going youth this time from what I read so far. But a mentor will really help, otherwise may not last here for too long again :?

Welcome back
It was terribly sad when we got the news about Ash, he was a genuinely good guy
I was lucky enough to take over after his passing and keep his dream alive
Someone will be along shortly to offer their help, I would if I could but have enough on my plate currently
Hope you enjoy it and maybe wrangle a few of your mates to play

Hello, I'm trying to get to grips with the training, are there any links showing when a player could potentially pop to the next skill level? Is there a certain age and skill level of players I should be looking for in the transfer market? I have been a Battrick player for years and wanted to see what From the Pavilion is like

Hi Jon, hope all is good up north

Atrocious: 500
Dreadful: 1000
Poor: 2000
Ordinary: 3000
Etc.

The skill labels largely work in increments of 1,000 (apart from atrocious). Every week the skills you're training will increase by a certain amount, determined by what you are training, the age of the player, any Gifted talents (or Prodigy) and the quality of the relevant academy (senior or youth depending on the player).

Once they've accrued enough rating points the skill will 'pop' to the next level.

Generally managers begin to get a feel for how many weeks a certain type of training will take over time. For instance, in my Lavish youth academy it usually takes around 5-weeks for a fielding pop when training fielding.

In terms of the skill level you should be looking at, depends what you're looking to achieve. Generally, people want to win matches - so assembling a squad as good / superior to your opponents (if possible) is a good start, as long as the wages are sustainable for your finances.

Looking at your Senior One Day League - doesn't appear to be too much competition. So if you can get together a balanced squad and use them well, should be a successful season. You even have time to develop players which aren't the finished article.

My advice would be a player at accomplished/expert level would be very handy for you.

Hope that helps,
Montyh

If you need mentoring, you probably shouldn't be mentoring others.

As a newbie struggling to get to grips with the fundamentals of this game, I would very much appreciate the help of a mentor before I get totally lost!

Afternoon all. New player looking for a mentor before i get totally lost with things.

My mindset it to go down the youth development route. Also would really like to go through the Tips you get when starting the game but can't seem to find them now

Unfortunately, I'm busy enough dealing with NATS. I'm sure a manager will send you an IGM surrounding your youth team.
