Compilation of Some Newbie FAQs answered by experienced managers...

by AJRaptor (Warriors of Destiny) 94 months ago FAQNewbie
A lot of new managers join Hitwicket each day and have a lot of questions from training to finances to lineup.. Here I'm attempting to answer some of them through posts from managers who tried different tactics...

Note-- Some suggestions are focused only on newbies so some managers might find it not beneficial for themselves but its for newbies only..

A very important point before getting started--- Please read the Game Manual as it will clear most of your doubts. If you still have doubts please check below...

Question- 1- What should I do to improve my team?
Upgrade your Training Facilities as fast as you can. Hitwicket is largely about how you train your players so upgrading your Training Facilities is your foremost need.

Question-2- How can I improve finances or get money to upgrade facilities?
Negative finances are not a major issue, infact they are a help initially as it prevents you from purchasing poor quality players.
Please don't sell of your First Scout or High Skilled Old players, they have been given to help you sustain while you build. You can build your team around them!! So no matter how many times people ask you to sell them-- Just don't do it!!
To understand finances better you can go to this post by Abhishek Kaushal (The Kings Of Punjab).

Question-3- If I don't sell my players how do I get finances?
 To get finances you can follow these steps, they won't help you instantly but will allow you to accumulate enough finances for use when needed-
A- Fire/Sell players whose age is over 23 and skill index is below 8000. Unless that player is a WicketKeeper or a Accomplished or above Fielder, he can't help you much. Don't sell the old players having high skill index. A player below 23 can still be trained so they can be used.
B- Don't go on a buying spree.  A common mistake most people do, even I did when I was new, was buying players with whatever finances I got. Don't do it. Save up and use money to upgrade training facilities.
C- Try to win matches, thats what you would like and your fans would too. So win matches, increase fanbase and get more income from home-matches.

Question-4- What players should I purchase?
Please don't go purchasing players so soon. At start you have been given enough strength to sustain your team while you are trying to grow. Don't waste your money on Old Players or youngsters in market. 
Why not old players? Because old players from market require higher salaries for their skill than your similar skilled youngster would. 
Why not a youngster?  You are able to find a youngster in market so easily only because his skills were not good enough to train else some older manager would have taken him up already.

Question-5- Which type of training I should give?
The type of training depends upon the old players you have and your first scout.
The first scout is mostly a potential all-rounder so it mostly depends on the old players.
If your old players are good bowlers(accomplished or above), then train your youngsters in Batting.
If your old players are batsmen(reliable or above in both types) and your team has a weak bowling, train in bowling.
You can follow one of the routines below:
A--For Bowling training you should check here, a post by one of the oldest bowling trainers in Hitwicket- SoulCollector (Frozen Throne), or you can check this post here by one of the best known managers and a bowling trainer Sir Priyansh Modi (The Special One)And to check results of a dedicated bowling training check here, it was achieved by Pramod Sripada (Vizag Winners).

B--For Batting Training you should check here, it was posted by Sir Ishan (Delhi Dynamos)...You can also check here it was posted by Sir Amber_Gupta (Gupta FightersXI)

For a rough idea of how much time it takes to train heavy players, check this post by Sir Maximus (The Gladiators) and another post by Sir MasterMind (Rajputians Chichoras)...

C--But all these require a good set of trainees and that requires cash. So here's another idea I got from Sir Maximus (The Gladiators), that was to train in Wicketkeeping/Fielding for a season or 2 and then selling the Wicketkeeper. A decent wicketkeeper is worth a lot more than its Recommended Selling Price so sell them and get good trainees..
How this works? You can check it here. This has been shown by kaukrishhh (SUPER SCOUTERS), check here for the results.

Question-6- I have a decent team but still lose. Is something wrong with the game?
No. Nothing is wrong. Its just that you made a few mistakes in setting the lineup.
You can get a few hints about setting the lineup from here an awesome post by Sir scotch (Malibu).

Question-7- How can I improve my MRP?
Increasing Manager Reputation points, is needed to unlock some new and really good features like Bowling Variation Training, altering stadium capacity, sending scout abroad and setting AFT.
You can read about some tactics to increasing MRP here, it was posted first by DazedNConfused (Marilize Legajuana) and then improved by Sir Maximus (The Gladiators).

Question-8- Which type of player should I buy?
 If after reading the above reasons, you still want to buy some players then follow the guidance of the post related to the training you are giving. Your purchases should depend entirely on the training you intend to follow.

Question-9- Why should I play practice matches? How will they benefit me?
You should play practice matches whenever you have a chance as it allows you to understand how to setup your lineup in a better way. For more info, check this post by Sir MasterMind (Rajputians Chichoras)

In the end, I would just say, its your team and your choice. We can only help you with what we have come across and what we have experienced, but its all upto you to decide which mode suits you the best.
So all the best to all new comers to Hitwicket.
And yeah, if you have any doubts, feel free to bug me or  the managers tagged in the post.

A request to Devs: Please create a separate section or monitor guiding posts by senior managers as they get lost in the immense clutter in forum and it takes a lot of time to search for them. The above tagged posts are quiet helpful for newbies but inaccessible due to clutter. Please do something..

Also please use the search bar before opening a new thread. There are generations of same questions coming up week after week in forums. You should do this only after you have thoroughly read the game manual. Most of your so common doubts are answered by the manual.. 

If you need any training strategy help you can ask in academy or can even view good posts by managers here which have been kept in the "training" tag. No point asking similar advice again and again, from so many managers.

Oops, thanks for the link to that post... Tried to look for it but couldn't find it...
Training all-rounders is not a concern for newbies, they can do it if they want, their foremost need is the simple questions mentioned above so kept the All-rounder post away from discussion, the mistakes have already been mentioned so the link won't be needed.
And manager academy-- sorry to say but I have seen some academies ruining newbies, so I would rather check up for the good academies and mention their names directly...

Bookmarked !!!  A well rounded guide to starting up in Hitwicket i especially liked the bit about not selling you good older player and keeping your first scout. I sold my older player on the advice of my academy mentor tut tut. In fact i find it hard to fault this guide. Right can i start again please ha ha

International scout is a good idea, but considering the amount you would have to pay each week as scout fee with not much chances of a good scout, India is a safer bet.

Consider this-
No of weeks spent in other country- 2
Cost incurred- 300 K x 2=600K
Chances of a good scout-  0.1*2=0.2--- at most

No of weeks in India- 2
Cost incurred- 10K x 2= 20K
Chances of good scout- 0.01 * 2= 0.02
But the amount u spent in foreign being 30times, means u can get a better scout in India for lesser investment :D
