Different Strategies For Playing Hitwicket.

by Deep (Deep's Masterpiece) 75 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.
.
ADVANTAGES-
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.
.
DRAWBACKS -
.
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.
.
.
 ADVANTAGES
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.
 .
 DRAWBACKS - 
.
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. 
.
ADVANTAGES -
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.
.
DISADVANTAGES - 
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.

First thing u shd do is upgrade u training facilities. ....amd wld suggest refrain from market....and save whatever u can....decide what training u want to give and only train ur scouts...fact most of the legends u see I mean players...are either scouts or shitty players bought real cheap..just hardcore training did the job.... now once u got ur trainees set which shd take u atleast a season start getting them better in a single season u ll notice the diff....post that u can decide u want to train them sell them or whatever. ... Only then start thinking of ur finances....money will automatically come once u get ur team better...so instead of going to finance tab stick to the training tab...:-)

Sir Satyasarthak (Shree)   i can just say is that u maybe one of the best here but u never been in the DIV V , VI and VII .The time u made your team all managers are of same level. but its not like that now as there is no point in staying in division which have more than 50% inactive managers just to be great in future. and if u loose this time the next shot will be 2 month away from you. and u will bore here for two more months playing against BOT.  and i have already proved above that u either can win or train your tranees as u dont have that much resources in lower divisions.

Ok its one of diff strategies and it works only if u r planning to Play Hitwicket  for a season or two.

Let me give u an example,U start from div VII and u follow this strategy,u get promoted to Div VI of course but eventually ur players will start losing skills and ur team will be destroyed..

Now what will u do?? Again start from scratch and buy 30 yr olds?? Even if u keep on doing this for seasons,ur team will not grow..U can't move up above div 5..How long do u think u can do like this..

Lets say u thrash a team in div 7 which has invested in proper trainees which would've been very weak in the initial stages of training but when u face the team after 2 or 3 seasons ur team of oldies will not stand a chance against that proper team

Now let me suggest a strategy that would practically work for the newbies: 

Initially u'll be given a good scout,start training in that department(say batting)
Upgrade ur training facilities as soon as possible
All newbie's will face a season of -ive balance u can't avoid it but u can minimize it..How?? Forget about the transfer market untill all ur training facilities all upgraded.
Then recruit ur scout on mon,If u get mediocre+ scouts,keep them
If u get 17 yr old scouts sell them they'll fetch u a lot of money( or if u have sufficient trainees in the same dept,start training him)

Keep training in batting untill u have 6 youth batsmen or bowlers 
Now after collecting 6 trainees,start training them,and sell the players of other department.
Now u have decent trainees,train them for 3 seasons,in the mean time save every penny u can..
Also buy decent,experienced players(25-29) for the other dept(rel/useless bowler of acc/acc) batsmen

At the end of three seasons ur trainees would hit brown levels and would've saved 25Million+ money
Now with all the saved money buy proper trainees(17 yrs) and start training your other department..

Trust me,this works,I've been a NEWBIE once and this strategy is wat i have been using..I will be shifting to bowling training from season 11

when u are thinking of a strategy ask yourself how will your team be after 3 seasons and what you'll do after that.'Cos this game all about long term planning

Don develop a team to get promoted to next div ,develop a team that can take u all the way to
 DIV 1

I didn't read any comments above so dunno if anybody has mentioned it. but there's a big mistake saying you easily get Remarkabe bowler for 2M. Nowadays you don't get 28 Rem/Med bowler less than 3.5/4M

was it a strategy or r u reducing ur competition :o
75 months ago


See the fact is if u have 2 rem/acc batsman in most cases u can score around 200 odd in every matches as your opponents are also weak...

u r usually given with a team that can compete with teams in the same league...

as in my case..

i was given with 1 bri/use 1 acc/hop and 1 rel/hop spinners, 1 rel/hop seamer scout and some avg/avg batsman

i sold the bri spinner for around 5m and with that money i upgraded training facilities, bought 2 30+ batsman and 3 mediocre seam trainess (was lucky to get them damn cheap 17 yr old in less than 100k, 2 19 yr old med/hor seamers with med/med batting skills in less than 300K) and was lucky to get 2 decent seam trainee via scout..

now training is also going on i am also topping the league and most importantly have a positive balance.

in 2 months they will all be worth at least 3M each on an average...

So temme is it not worth it rather than wasting in fitness training of older players who also eats up huge amount in salary?
