1 year at Hitwicket - Bang Bang! Division 4, I am coming!

If someone had shown me after a couple of weeks of joining the game that this is where my team would stand after one year, I would have gladly taken it with both hands. 

This has been a wonderful journey with the last couple of months being crazy for a number of different reasons: played more matches, carried out more experiments and found some really good people who have made my HW experience even better. 

* I won't restart training: Never subscribed to his theory of train for 5-6 months, sell them and start over again. Hence, I still have my first set of trainees with me, apart from a couple of obvious sells, and they will take the game forward for my team. I wanted to enjoy the process, and, looking at in hindsight, I have taken the right decision considering that I have already got sick of bowling training. Jumping to batting training soon! 

* Area of specialization: Well, I understood that the game had different aspects and chose to master the in-game scenarios. Luckily, by the time I joined in, there was this one awesome feature named AFT that got released, too. I understood that leaving the game in the hands of Match Engine could mess it up sometimes and decided to take it in my hands to cut down the chances of probability ruining my games. 
If I bat first, and if I even have 10% more chances than you have to win, you are screwed, that is for guaranteed. I don't go into a match without an AFT target set! This way, I win, I win. I lose, I blame myself.

* Achievements: I have the best bowling attack among teams that joined closer to my joining date, not because I had great trainees but because a good number of them would have sold and started training again. Training a useless-useless 19-yr-old to Fantastic-Reliable is something that makes me laugh even now. He will end as Magni-Reliable. Wouldn't you take a 12 star bowler in decent-good? There you go. 

And people buy one 17-year-old for 25 million. My entire set of trainees cost me 5 million max.

Being a bowling trainer myself, I don't consider defeating bowling trainers as an achievement, lot of probability in play. Every balanced team or a batting trainer I defeated has what made me happy. Unfortunately, a good number of batting trainers and balanced teams don't play with me. Only bowling trainers come up in line when I ask for a bet match :(

Not being marked for spam once! Not fined once! Not cheated once! How many can say that?

* Future scene: I will never have a great bowling line-up. But I will always have an above average bowling line-up and no weak-links: 5 proper bowlers. You are not targetting me, mate! Also, only batting trainers can trouble my bowling line-up. I can count on the fingers of my one hand how many are capable of doing it among the current set, so it doesn't bother me. 

Where the game needs to improve:

* Chasing is weird as *fudge*. Give us more powers while chasing, some feature like AFT that could control the game and make us re-think our strategy and not look for chances to blame the defeat on match engine.

Look at these matches ->

First match had 2 dummies waiting for me after 12 overs, while second, well, only had dummies apart from one good bowler. 

* More tactical options. Whatever you are concentrating on, please stop that and bring the player characteristics feature first. We are crying out down from here for that feature, hope you can see that! Give us more options to outsmart opposition. 

Honestly speaking, I could have been a bit rude here, but that is because I have supported it all along. So, I guess, I could express my disappointment, if any, as well. 

India Cup: Haven't nominated myself. There is a still a lot of work to do. I don't think I am qualified, yet. I don't enter into anything without perfecting it as much as I could. 4 months from now, and I would have tried everything that is here to be tried. And, then, brace up for what is on cards!  

Nothing much. I am happy with everything else! Thank you, developers! I would have been a little bit bizarre in last month or so, but then you should have seen that coming with my very first forum post :P

No apologies, no feeling sorry, nothing. If I have argued against you or fought against you, I stood for what I thought was right and I still think it is.

When you joined- was lil Annoyed due to your team name... :p

I mean- used to randomly get requests or even implied threats on FB to leave the player- and i was like-wtf- is my id hacked? :p

But seriously- have interacted with you at various tourneys, various forums- And honestly love your approach and attitude of "Shit happens. Its a Tactical Game. No Blame Game"...

And agree a lot with you in terms of training.. :)

And yep- You are amazing writer- Logical, to the point.. Might have argued couple of times (Changing match timings)- but at least understood what you are saying is also based on logic.. :)

Hope you keep kicking ass.. ;)

Sir AJRaptor (Warriors of Destiny) Ha ha.. It recently happened once. I sort of understood Priyansh won't be even close to catchable in a couple of months after buying semi-trained ones and upping the League 1.1 ambitions. So, made sure I get a match with him before. Looks like my batsmen rose to the occasion and wanted to make it worth it, too. Nothing else explains me taking it so close while chasing.
