Give Elite Training to your Players!

by Sir Soulcollector (The Frozen Throne) 18 months ago
The Elite Academy

 Statutory Warning: This is a long announcement but worth reading. Ensure a good appetite for awesome ideas before reading on! 
“You do not win or lose games because of the 11 you select. You win or lose with what those 11 do on the field.”  Rahul Dravid summed up the simplicity and complexity of Cricket in that one quote. 

 It’s been a fun ride for all of you winning regularly and a bumpy one for the ones yet getting into their groove. Knowing how all of you are going through the “regular drill” of setting lineups, we thought it might be time to just “change the game” and make it interesting. If you’re the guy who goes by superstitions and doesn’t change his winning eleven, we’re hell bent on breaking the monotony. If you’re the fan of “rotation policy” and have a set piece for replacing the players regularly, we’re here to disrupt that settled system and have you wrack your brains even more while picking the lineup!
 Defining a batsman (or Bowler) as a Left Hander (Arm) or Right Hander (Arm) with a skill rating depending on his ability isn’t enough. What gives him the differential edge from his peers is his “Role” in the side. The manager needs the choice of knowing the role of the player. 

 With the Elite Academy, we bring this power to the managers. Setting the lineup will now require much more than basic strategic moves. Instead of just shuffling the combination based on form updates, the Elite academy now allows the manager to study and build their team around players who have complete clarity about their roles in the team. So, you can choose to train your special young prodigy to be an explosive opener, a brilliant finisher or a Flat Track Bully. Or he can ensure that his promising young scout needs to be trained specially to be a bowler who runs through sides once he tastes initial success or a guy who has left handers for breakfast, lunch and dinner! 

 We’re calling the enhanced boost in player’s ability as “Trait”. Traits are the specific roles and abilities the manager chooses to train the player for. You don’t just walk into the best college without scoring in high school. Similarly, a trait is a special power and it doesn’t just fall into the lap of all players; they have to earn their entry into the Elite Academy. The player becomes eligible for the next trait unlock once he has made through 3 subsequent experience levels, starting from “Accomplished”. 

 Staying true with the realistic nature of the feature, once the manager chooses to send a particular player to the Elite Academy, the player will not be available for matches till his training is complete/trait is unlocked. But once he returns, he is just unstoppable! 
And to make sure no one shouts about capitalism with the rich guys ruling the roost, a manager will be allowed to send only 1 player to the academy at a time!! 
So everyone will have their “Mauka Mauka” moment to be in the Elite Academy! ;) 

The Skill Tree

 Let’s get into the real deal of the Elite Academy right away. 

 In the recently released movie, Dangal, Amir Khan says, “Champions don’t grow on Trees”. Well, we beg to differ; our traits do grow on the “Skill Tree”.

 Let’s understand this unique “Skill Tree” 
The Skill tree offers 2 distinct branches: Batting and Bowling!!

 The tree becomes accessible for a batsman only when he becomes Brilliant in “Bat Seam” or “Bat Spin”. A bowler needs to be Brilliant in “Bowling Main” or Bowling Variation” to access the skill tree. The traits in the skill tree are divided into tiers. While you can level up to 3 levels in a trait, every level up will count as 1 “unlock”. All-rounders, the rare breed of cricketers, have the privilege of unlocking 1 trait each at a time, from batting and bowling. However, he will be able to do after he has gained 3 levels of experience. 
 The Tier I offers basic options to make your batsman either a Top order, Middle Order or Lower Order or pick your bowler to be Opening Overs, Middle Overs or Death Overs bowler. Tier I has 3 levels within which the managers can opt for with subsequent unlocks. So, with the next unlock, you can choose to go level up in Tier I or move over to Tier II specialisation
 Tier II is the place where you choose the specialisation. In short, you get to develop your batting prodigy into a Warner or a Dhoni or a Kohli or choose to make your bowling sensation as good as a Dale Steyn or R Ashwin or Lasith Malinga, depending on your long term strategy! 

 Also, Tier III will be available soon make sure you are spoilt for choice! 

 Though all the traits are equally enticing, you have to make the tough choice of picking just one trait per tier because you cannot ask your batsman to be David Warner for going bonkers at the top and then try and suddenly make him into Carlos Brathwaite for the finishing touches! So, pick the traits very wisely. Higher level traits take longer time to train.

 We’ve grown this tree to help you get the taste of the victory fruit more often! 

  • Elite Academy is implemented on the Facebook version of Hitwicket. 
  • Android version of super hitwicket will be released within two weeks.
  •  Traits will be applicable by the match engine from 11.01.2017.
  • Only one player can be sent to the elite academy at a given time.
  • Every manager is awarded 5 free weeks of training for Elite Academy. Use them wisely!!

I know this is probably the wrong post for this, has anyone tried to take a good bat with useless w/keeper skill and trained them into w/k bat. Do they become a good keeper on the field or just in skill?

You are correct - it is the wrong post, both for those interested in the subject of this thread, *and* for you to reach the people who can answer your question.
