We Know SuperCoach!
1358 vc looped munster and copped jojo fifita’s 19
1017 C Douihi. Post round 17 bye I was ranked just inside the 5k so decided to go hard on the PODs and POD captains in an effort to make up ground. Fair to say it hasn’t worked out.
Kudos for having the courage to POD up.
I’m not gonna lie, it was a tough watch this weekend not owning Munster, Teddy, Grant, Murray and Latrell
Very brave not to have had at least 2 of those 4.
I’ve learnt a very valuable lesson that when PODing you can’t go against all the guns. They’re guns for a reason.
As long as you don’t make the same mistakes next year Hoffa. I sometimes get a feeling of d’ej’a vu when I antI-POD an emerging gun, waste a trade, or put my faith in a previous player that has burned me before… or buy high/sell low when my spidee senses said don’t do it! I find the learning process is a slow one.
There is alway an element of luck in the running too. You have at least gone down swinging. Hopefully a better start and a cooler head next year… I am sure you will bounce back then.
After blitzing it last 2 weeks…. I fall big time and lost 8 Major Finals…. but I will fight back next week as I didn’t trade for 2 weeks so opponents beware… not done yet 🙂 Shit weeks do happen haha
That’s the spirit, TG.
Thxs Mate :-)….I was just lucky Munster scored so well…. was going to POD C Nanai lol … definitely avoided a monster slide with that loop
I think we all know how quickly one’s fortunes can change in this frustrating (yet addictive) game. 🙂
Every single year, year after year, we say “not doing this shiz again” but it’s soooo damn addictive like you have stated DCE we all come back for me. Masochism at it’s extreme (without the ‘sexual’ gratuity – I hope no-one derives that LOL).
I stopped playing draft this year after 10 years doing it. I’m too competitive and coupled with an addictive personality I found it actually caused me more stress and anxiety than enjoyment. never had the same stress with classic mode, but found my obsession just transferred to classic without draft in my life. I’m calling it quits after this year. my mental health can’t take the constant overthinking and stress, especially for something that at the end of the day, is totally out of our hands and is 90% luck
Same here.. having a year off at least
Totally understand you mate, 100%. I bet if a poll was taken it would be found that literally everyone who plays SC (in money comps or going for the overall) no longer watches the game the same way they did pre SC. We all ignore our teams but instead look at the players who will get us points. Too much stress and tear.
yeh you raise a great point. I can honestly say since I started playing supercoach I have lost “my team”. I don’t follow an NRL club anymore, just players. I used to be diehard Broncos fan but when you have h2h relying on players beating them I ended up losing my love for the actual competition of the NRL. it became just a stats game. very frustrating. hopefully with the dolphins coming in and me letting go of sc I can regain some love for the game itself.
Look forward to seeing u back next year! I can see u nodding your head despite the trauma 🙂
haha na, I was able to cold turkey draft, and for the first few months it was amazing. stress free and barely watched much footy tbh until I tried to climb the ladder in my h2h. I’m actually really looking forward to removing this stress from my life.
I’m also out next year!! 1 team having a bye each week is going to be shiiite but the scoring system is the reason I’m done. 17 for a try thrown in with 10 for a LB then 12 for a TA and 8 a LBA if they offloaded it’s another 4. Due to that it just brings far too much luck into it and no reward for your consistent hard working players. Very few defensive plays are rewarded. 0 points for a 1 on 1 steal but 6 for an interception is a joke. Throw in the refs who… Read more »
You made me laugh, Shlapper. At the end of the day, we all must remember that SC is a game. 🙂
HAHAHA DCE, I just hope there is no donkey slapping going on when your (not you specifically) teams are rocking the kazbah.
Life is for living, Shlapper. 🙂
I tell you a little story…. red donates money to a private league for price money…. he is not worried about winning or losing…. he just wants other to feel happy… I am very luck to know a guy with such a big heart for the game
I assume you’re referring to “red” on this forum?
yes, x-player … coach…. Ref…. Junior development…. he does love the game 🙂
He’s always struck me as a good bloke – straight shooter.
My opponent in a public league scored 1565. Wtf!
1540 with Saab on the pine in mine.
And he’s ranked 100 ish
Doueihi due any updates..?
125 would be nice..must be some LB/tries missed for sure and throw in a bunch of conversations
According to SC live he is due a 2 point downgrade only. I can’t see too much of a change unless a Unicorn comes out of nowhere and gives him an enema.
Haha! Went for the Hail Mary Captain option and it did not pay off
Bugger mate. This has been one bitch of a week with guns firing and guns choking. Hopefully he gets some unicorn points for you.
Trust in your players is what I learned this week…. for 2 weeks Nanai and Tapine killed it for me…. this week well not so good but not trading them unless injury forces me to do so…. both are guns imo
Tapine’s score was purely due to injury and off with low mins – agree that surely have to hold (pending injury updates, rib injury so will need to see if it can be strapped and pain managed).
Nanai though is pretty much dependent on tries – if he is not scoring then it can hurt. Still he his upside is just insane and up until this game his floor was too. If I had him I would be holding onto and playing every game.
No regrets for getting them 3 weeks ago 🙂
Is this an anomalie, my opponent did the VC loop, with Momosia listed as the C, who remains at the bottom of the table (player No 25), in the top two areas, different and same are 17 players who”s total added up to the opponents tally, I would have thought that if listed as C Momosia would at least be in the top 17 in one of the top two areas, ?? and would contributed as a nil score, tks for advice
Momoisea didn’t contribute to their score as he didn’t play so he’s moved to the NPR.
Even if Momosia is listed at the C (to do the VC loop) he must be listed as a player at some point, which would be in the 17 counted players for scoring
A player can’t be in your 17 if they aren’t listed to play(unless you select more than 1 NPR). They are never part of your team.
