Selling a few, maybe 5 or 6 in total

Post by quind on Wed Mar 23, 2016 10:13 pm

After accidentally promoting I'm going to sell some players and get ready for relegating, again.  None of my players are that old (the oldest is 28 about to turn 29) and they'll be circa 200-250k CSR.  So some good options to buy, and from my standpoint hopefully some expensive options to buy.

The first two going up are

and

There are now more for sale. Further good players too, got to be of interest to someone. Fair warning some have already reached their $1 reserve, and at least one has attracted a bid of $1001, which might be as high as a 200k CSR 26 year old goes for, who knows!

I love the thought of accidentally promoting

It never really occurred to me I'd win the qualifier, I could have shanked my selection but that felt wrong, and I wanted the TNT for the exp. As it turns out the other team wanted out of what's an overly strong Div 2 and it simply hadn't occurred to me they wouldn't try and thus win. Heh ho.

The reason that Div 2 is so strong is that Jolly Roger promoted through it locking in a Div 1 team that had demoted. Amusingly If I relegate as I did previously there's an excellent chance Praetorians will replace me, and that could lock in another Div 1 team who demote. Div II.4 is perhaps on the way to being the strongest Div II ever.

And up goes one of my big guns, he's been a rock in my midfield at 12 for a number of seasons now. He's due a pop in handling too. Only selling as he'd be 30 by the time I might make it back to Div 2, it's a wrench to see him go.

Yeah I know what you mean but just a funny peculiarity of the game that you can promote and not be particularly happy about it!

Made it into division 2 for the first time in my history next season - glad I didn't go into ii.4, will be enough of a struggle to stay up in ii.2!

Right, i'm onto my eighth player listed out of an original 5-6 being sold. This will very likely the last one sold (until I promote a decent 17 year old training option from the YA in a couple of rounds) but I may well have saved the best for last

About to turn 28, 233k CSR, 131kg, controlled discipline, a fine prop and adept at hooker

Always interesting to see where the money goes in these instances, and the money is a hard and true reflection of how others see your players. Right now I am a little surprised, but there's time until the auctions complete later today and then tomorrow.

When I scout my 1, or maybe 2 players, next week this will be one of the players getting promoted, and whilst I may just fire the other this one is worth putting on the TM

https://www.blackoutrugby.com/game/club.squad.youth.php#player=8523076

Stamina 11
Hands 8
Attack 9
Defence 8
Tech 5
Str 5
Jump 5
Speed 13
Agility 13
Kicking 8

TDSP - 85, which isn't amazing but pretty good for someone only recently turned 17

I'd leave him in my YA actually other than I still plan to have speed and agi on TT this season, and there'd be no point training him on those as he'll be hitting the cap. With that speed and agi though he'd be very easy to train as a wing, or with that kicking one could have minimal nets on speed and agi and turn him into a very good 9, 10 or 15

He'll go on sale for my usual reserve of $1 so there's the chance too that someone might snag a bargain.

Tell me about it

I'd like to point out to anyone that doesn't know, that was Quin's fault.

You should read your league lounge, you almost certainly can't get Praetorians now. That said your hatred of me is perfectly reasonable, even if I did offer the league a solution for not getting JRC and nobody took me up on it, and frankly I've always thought Widg the better member of WI anyway.

I thought I could get promoted that season so didn't want to give my ranking points to you. However, I failed and should have taken your advice. You think that, I've bested him in each of the last 3 seasons, so I win!

Oh and good news about praetorians.

All I remember was a Titans win on a lower intensity in the semis, not sure there have been other games since then! Although I'm glad no one took my suggestion on board, it wouldn't have been helpful to me.

17 year old for sale, 43k CSR, 13 speed and agility, popped to despicable exp last season.

Deadline Sat 9 Apr 10:36:00 - I was going to go for later in the day, but figure as I'll not play him I might as well whoever buys him let him play if wanted.

Ouch, he went for $1

I wasn't expecting much in the current market, but still, ouch. One of those that makes you wish you could train 4-5 players on 10 nets and not have a car crash of a sale, but then one would only wish you could train 6-7 on 10 nets so it is what it is
