Skill Points

Shopping Tokens
Cash (to a degree)

WTF.

The intent was to add choices, enable SA chamges, etc.

Fine. But simple is better.

A slight change in bonus tokens - how many are earned and what can be done with them could have achieved all of this. Want to swap an SA? 16 tokens, please. Add strength-agility as an intense combo? 8 tokens. Or whatever.

Build your own AEQ combo? Well, that first piece will cost 16 bonus tokens.

This way, we'd keep what is really a tried and true training and upgrade system, add some options, and not need to add cpmplexity and confusion and excessive need for number crunching to get determine the best next step for a dot.

This quote from Saris just sort of capped the whole thing for me:

I thought the developmental trains were a one time deal? And you're listing a BT cost with the single trains but not the multi's which also take BT's to upgrade. Also I think your BT numbers are off for the multi's, they seem to be counting one additional train.

Now I am not taking shots at Saris on this comment. I assume that the question is completely legitimate and I am not being sarcastic in the next with regards to Saris.

Should that question even have to be asked? How does that have anything to do with football? It almost feels like we are speaking Arabic here. In fact, Arabic may be easier to learn than the new training system.

Don't feed the spreadsheet jockeys please. They are not representative of the player base.



I don't care what game you're playing, if it's a sim there's going to be some math going on behind the scenes. All I was trying to do was make it so that each option is balanced, so people who don't want to put the time into figuring this out won't screw themselves over too badly.

Also I'm sure the current game would look like arabic to a new player if you were trying to explain GLB to them on a forum. "ALG's, BT's, TP's, Cap bulding, SSB's, wtf I want to play football." But when you can see it on a screen, all the terminology is no longer necessary and it becomes a lot clearer.

If we can get a free reset of young players after the archetypes, surely newly created players will get a free reset before this goes into effect. Any player created this year is worthless with this training system coming out. LVL 1 players that can buy training points will catch up to guys created this year very very quickly.

As long as it doesn't require me to create macros I am alright.

or better yet, maybe he'll finally bring a dot to my team then tell us how to train on the team board
