How do you get so cool looking players? :D Atwater is probably the most badass looking player in the game. And now Bluebeard.

Oh, and I happen to own Bluebeard's older brother (Light Bluebeard).

Legends say that any manager who acquires Bluebeard, Tealbeard, and Blondebeard in a single squad will win back to back CWCs...

Pretty tempted to buy Magnus Gray just because of his name, Sounds pretty cool, at least to me...

About the key stats Muir is already or pretty close to max in agility, accuracy, strength, dextery and balance and by the time she is the age of Beedles she will be pretty close of maxing speed too, so six, all of them important, skills maxed by the time she is 23, with only charisma, alertness and morale ( all of them secondary skills) below 80.

About the AVG we all know it too well that a high AVG doesn't mean a better player, and I actually feel prouder when I have player with low AVG that play better than monster with 88AVG because that means that I know which skills I should focus on.

Anyway, those three players were developed by me, with special mention to Muir and Beedles which I trained since the beginning so whoever ends becoming "better" I will feel proud and co responsible.


DarioDiConca wrote:I think nowadays for a chaser it is important to have the maximum amount of skills maximized, the same for beaters. The players quality increased in the last seasons, when i search for players for these 2 positions i always try to see if they will maximize a lot of stats, and if they have weak spots, A good chaser/beater should have the maximum of maximized stats, and few (or none) weak spots.

About if dexterity is more important than alert and etc.. no one knows in fact, but i would say if i was a lower division team i would search for chasers with more dexterity than alertness, if i was a honour league team i would search for players with these 2 positions maximized.

Beedles probably will not maximize at dexterity and alert, but with the proper training will reach the 90´s, 95´s level, and will have 7 stats above 90´s, and that´s pretty good.



From our past discussion on page ~7 , I had as well some doubts if Beedles would reach maximization in alert and dext, he actually did reach it.

Damn you actually managed to make him reach 99 in dextery, I remember that he was pretty low on that when I sold him to you, probably his early 80 or late 70. Glad to see him develop so well.

Men, this is a buy i had been waiting so long to make but finally the time arrived. Amazing player, he has pretty low balance but given how high his other skills are and how Young he is i will have plenty of time to make him progress in his balance. This guy makes me smile :lol:
