Different Strategies For Playing Hitwicket.by Deep (Deep's Masterpiece) 74 months ago Tips
I have completed 3 months in hitwicket and sharing my experiences with you :-
This post is only for newbies in division V , VI and VII and it is tested and work for sure.
So i will give u all prevailing strategies that are available and in last give mine but i wont discuss them as there more than 100 forum post explaining them so i will only give u the drawbacks and advantages.
1) BOWLING TRAINING : - in this strategy v train in bowling and buy only batsman.
a) U dont have to worry about buying both batsman and bowlers . Focusing only on buying batsman certainly helps.
b) Bowling main training is comparatively faster than batting training.
c) after 3-4 month u will have decent bowler in your squad who balls around 8 star. and as a newbie u cant buy those from auction as u dont have that much budget.
d) ur trainees helps u perform in youth cup.
A) U wont be able to buy average trainees within two month of your joining to hitwicket. as either u will wait for your scout to give them to u .... well that's shear luck or u go for the auction and thats really very hard as u have maximum of positive 1m-2m balance that too in two weeks.
B) training upgrade cost 3.1 m. and u would upgrade ur full training not before one month in hitwicket if u r playing fair . so if u have trainees u wont be able to give them complete quota of training
C) Let us assume that u have gathered the trainees but they wont become match winners before three month of training.
D) u have to deal with toothless bowling for few weeks. and in few weeks u will loose your season.
now v conclude that your team wont be able to perform as u like before 3 month (usual case).
2) BATTING TRAINING :- in this v train batsman and try to buy bowler from the auction.
all are almost similar as bowling training m just giving u the different ones.
A) Buying batsman from auction is much more difficult as most of the managers in hitwicket have opted for bowling training . remarkable / remarkable batsman in the market costs around 3m. whereas a remarkable bowler comes around 2m. as u r training in batting . u will buy bowlers. as they come cheaper. u certainly has advantage.
A) batting training is comparatively slow... either u start giving batting seam or batting spin training or be patient. but that too is not good.... a imbalance batsman is also of no use... as i have a batsman in my squad . he is brilliant / average . he plays through the medium pacers and get out within one two overs of spinners. if the other team started off with spinners than he is of no use at all.
B) u have to deal with powerless batting for few weeks and in few weeks ....sadly u again lost the league.
My Strategy:- KICK OFF STRATEGY.
u have just joined in and u dont have money .. sell your all under 20 players as they are useless as they dont perform as compared to the older experienced batsman . people here are mad for buying the under 20 player. They will even buy your handicapped under 20 player. this will give you money . which in initial stages is the most important thing.
note- but please do recruit your monday scout as it gives 20 mrp and u have one more under 20 players to sell .
- THIS WAS THE PART OF SELLING NOW COMES BUYING -
a) the player nearing to 30 and above 30 are sold in the market half of their fair market price. try to buy good good players from the market.
b) the players in poor or hopeless form and fitness are sold at very low prices . as nobody bid on them as nobody wants to pause their skill training schedule and switch for fitness training just for one player. Even managers sell their players in bad fitness just to continue their skill training schedule. so u do get them at cheaper value.
note - don't exceed your squad more than 16 17 players. otherwise u will be killed by the weekly salary expenses.
TRAINING - TRAIN IN FITNESS.
as u r buying most of the players in poor or hopeless fitness u do need to give them fitness training.
.NOTE - this is just a kick off strategy.... IT WONT WORK IN LONG TERM. so when u think u have gathered a winning squad. stop buying players and update your training facilities. it will take u upto 4 weeks to upgrade it completely. than start looking for your trainees.
a) U will have a squad better in skills almost within 2 -3 weeks. and this is enough to win u ur current league.
b) u dont have to buy the bowling and batting trainees which are costly than a complete division VII team just formed.
c) u dont have to buy the under 20 player just to register for the under 20 cup. as i know and u know and everybody else u wont even be able to top ur group forget about the knockouts.
NOTE - no matter how many senior manager tells u to play for under 20 cup. dont u ever think of it... even if u r applying above two strategies as u will end up wasting all your money for nothing. The money which can help u winning the league which have the opponents of your standard than to compete against teams whose each player is costlier than your complete squad. for eg- i spend more 7 m in the under 20 cup 4 . Just to play 5 youth cup matches and placed at the number 4 spot in my group.
a) u need to be hyper active in the player auction
b) FORGET THE UNDER 20 CUP. U WILL HAVE BORING TUESDAYS AND SATURDAYS.
THE ABOVE STRATEGIES ARE BASED ON MY EXPERIENCES ONLY OF THE TWO SEASONS I PLAYED IN HITWICKET . FIRST SEASON WON IN DIVISION VII AND NOW ALMOST WINNING MY LEAGUE IN DIVISION VI.
HERE ARE THE ALL STRATEGIES. CHOOSE WISELY.
