Or you could sign up here:

To give me the referral points instead of him!

I run the Richmond Razorbacks in the USA AA East. They just increased the amount of leagues in the USA so that now there are 8 total, so if you wanted to buy or play only for USA teams, get in there now. They had to do the increase because they ran out of space so quick. The game is already pretty popular and it's a lot of fun if you get on an active team. Check it out.

Razorbacks got their first win under my ownership yesterday! :)

The game has really grown -- when I began it was less than 8000 players, but now it's up to 18000. I expect the growth to continue. If you were thinking about checking it out, remember it's free to sign up and make your first player or two:

I don't know what they'll do if it gets really popular. Make 2nd and 3rd universes maybe.

Razorbacks play the best team in our league today!!

We probably don't have the talent to beat them, but then again, we could be saying, "That's why they play the game.."

I love it. Too much! The tactics are very basic right now but they are going to introduce advanced tactics soon. It looks like if you run a team you need to appoint people to be offensive and defensive coordinator. My team scouts the opponent and looks for player tendencies.. it's amazing how addicting it can be.

I am running the Lafayette Ragin Cajuns. If anyone wants to make a second player to play with other Saints reporters I could use you. Right now I need a set of Linebackers and Safties. I could also use a second CB and a Right tackle.

What league are you in? I own the USA AA East Richmond Razorbacks. I have a player on the USA B West Brooklyn Maulers too.

My team is already full so I can't take any players right now. Got a big game today..

I created myself as a FS if anyone wants to pick me up. I am on some computer generated team right now. Plus if you can give me a run down of how it works so I don't totaly screw up your team.

Edit... My computer teams name is Perth Stingers, username LoneStarSaint, player name Rocky Lott

In case anyone needs advice on how to build players, here's a guide that they've worked up over there:

This is a guide to creating and upgrading your players. I am by no means an expert, but by talking with vets and reading a lot of forums I have picked up a lot of tips about how to make players generally and at specific positions. This If you have better player models or tips to add, by all means please do.

General Tips

Stamina

Stamina is crucial for any player. It doesn’t matter how good your player is if he is warming the bench. Furthermore, you get XP based on how many plays you play, not what you do during them. So being on the field is key. Here are some specific guidelines:

Offensive players - these do not tire as quickly as defensive players.

QB

Level 1 - 14
Level 2 - 17
Level 5 - 21
Level 10 - 25
etc.

WR, TE, O-linemen

Level 1 - 16
Level 2 - 19
Level 5 - 25
Level 10 - 30
etc.

Defensive players and HB - they tire easily so they need a little more.

Level 1 - 16
Level 2 - 20
Level 5 - 26
Level 10- 32
etc.

Punters and Kickers - these do not tire much at all so they do not need as much stamina.

Level 1 - 8
Level 2 - 8
Level 3 - 9
Level 4 - 10
Level 5 - 11
etc.

All these numbers can be adjusted about a point or two, but if you have, for example, a level 2 C with stamina 30 that is probably a waste at that level.

Special Abilities

Special Abilities enhance your physical attributes. Thus without physical attributes they do not do much. The importance of Special Abilities varies from position to position.

-Very Important (add about 1 Special Ability point for every 3 you put into physical attributes) - K, P

-Important (add about 1 Special Ability point for every 4 or 5 you put into physical attributes) - QB, HB, WR, TE, O-line, D-line

-Not so Important (add about 1 Special Ability point for every 6-8 you put into physical attributes) - LB, CB, SS, FS

Also note that when you fill out the tree, you cannot put more than twice the previous number in the next box. For example, a QB’s Passing tree looks like this:

Pocket Presence -> Tight Spiral -> Pump Fake -> Turn Shoulder -> Field General

You cannot put 1 point in Pocket Presence and 3 points in Tight Spiral. You would have to put 2 points into Pocket Presence before the 3 in Tight Spiral would have any effect.

At this early stage in your player's development it is better to pick one tree and focus on it rather than trying to balance it all out between both trees, You can try to balance it, but your player will have a more solid immediate impact if you focus first then add balance later.

Boosting

You can boost your player up to 3 levels per season. You will need flex points to do this, which you can get by either purchasing them or by getting referrals.To do this Click on the Flex Points tab at the top of the page then where it says Level Up a Player, click boost and it will give you a drop down box where you select which player to level up and how many levels (up to 3) you want to boost him. It cost the same amount per level to boost a player as it cost to create him.

Custom Equiptment

You can make a piece of custom equitpment that increases any one attribute or combination of attributes +6. The cost is 100 FPs per +1, so a piece of custom equiptment that is +6 would cost 600 FPs. You can only use 1 piece of custom equiptment so don’t create two for the same player. That would be a waste of FPs.

Positions Guide

Here is a key:

Position Some I have divided into categories (eg.Power vs. Speed/Elusive HB)

Key Physical Attributes: These are the attributes which are the most important for creating a player at this position.
Other Important Physical Attributes: These are the attributes which are important for creating a player at this position, but not as important as the Key Attributes
Special Abilitites: I have grouped this into 3 categories:

-Very Important - Special Abilities are critical for the player's success. Make sure they are filled early and often(add about 1 Special Ability point for every 3 you put into physical attributes) - K, P

-Important - Special abilities are about as important as physical abilities. Pick a tree and add abilities to it regularly (add about 1 Special Ability point for every 4 or 5 you put into physical attributes) - QB, HB, WR, TE, O-line, D-line

-Somewhat Important - You should focus on physical abilities and add special abilities more sparingly (add about 1 Special Ability point for every 6-8 you put into physical attributes) - LB, CB, SS, FS

Other Advice: Any other tips about making this position.
Example of a Good Build: A url of a player at this position. If you post a url of one of your players who is very successful, please be sure to set his Attribute Sharing Option to "Everyone Can View".

Creating Positions

Got another couple of big games today. I've really upgraded Richmond's depth, but I had to buy Flex points and make the players myself. No one will take the deep bench jobs.

The team my QB is on is now 2-0 and playing a terrible team next. Good times.. if we win it!
