The TRUTH

Guest
I'm a few games into my 2nd season in world league(elite) and i've put together a nice little team, I finished second by 1 point to the gunners in my first year who were undefeated and beat me in my first game(only game i lost), I went on to win the Knockout cup rather easily(43-0) to Perpignan......i hope this game gets harder. :unsure:

I chose to use the Chiefs coz there kit is the best out of the starting choices...... and the Reds maroon just does my head in :D

Here's my team so far in my 2nd season...

1.B.BOTHA (84)
2.A.FREIER (86)
3.C.HAYMAN (83)
4.J.HARRISON (82)
5.D.GREWCOCK (83)
6.M.WILLIAMS (84)
7.M.HOLAH (91) captain
8.W.BROSNIHAN (83)
(thats a strong forward pack)
9.F.DU PREEZ (85) class player in this game
10.T.LAVEA (73) :lol: I cant get a good fly-half so im stuck with the jerry curled one and Robinson who is injured
11.C.RATHBONE (80) his stats are way lower than they should be :wall:
12.J.DI VILLIERS (83)
13.M.TURINUI (80) same as Rathbone :wall:
14.S.DANIELLI (82)
15.C.JANTIES (83) as AK said.....this guy is a great find early in the franchise...he's my penalty kicker while Robinson's out

16.T.WILLIS (86) great back-up hooker
17.B.CASTLE (86) he could be starting but his scrummaging is not as good as the other 2 (great in open play)
18.L.CHARTERIS (78) lock
19.J.CRONJE (82) covers the flanker/#8 positions
20.L.MASAGA (80) winger
21.C.DAVIDSON (78) scrum-half
22.S.KEFU (69) centre

I also have some other good players in the reserves (like LUAKI) who were great for me in the first year.

I've just recieved my first job offer from London Irish but i chose to decline it.........im holding out for the FORCE :bleh!:


Please post the teams your using in the WL and tell us the players that have made a big impact for your team....

I started as the chiefs too, won Div 3 and Knockout cup (playing on medium... think I might have to start again on Hard!). Started Div 2 but then got an offer from Sale in Div 1 so decided to go for it. Have managed to bring in Rico Gear, Chris Jack and Os Du Randt but think I'm going to have to hold off any more purchases until next season now.

I reckon 2 fast wingers are very important on world league, as especially lower down they can score you a lot of tries which can ectually earn you a lot of cash with try bonus.

Playing on Pro, 5mins matches, and am in my 4th season with Bristol, just starting the Elite league.

1.Os Du Randt
2.M.Regan
3.T.Smith
4.D.Grewcock
5.C.Jack
6.D.Wallace
7.M.Holah©
8.O.Finegan
9.F.Du Preez
10.F.Michalak(the weird one)
11.L.Tuquri
12.M.Giteau
13.M.Turinui
14.R.Caucau
15.R.Gear
16.T.Leota
17.B.Botha
18.G.Cronje
19.C.Charvis
20.C.Cusiter
21.R.Tipoki
22.Anesi

Getting a FH is hard as f**k on this game. Michalak is a SH first on this game though, so was pivked up for that position. Jones and O'Gara were interested before the 4th season though.

Im starting to find the hardest level way too easy and haven't really played this game much.

I hope it gets harder as i move into the higher leagues but i had no real trouble beating the elite teams in the knockout cup.........so maybe not :(



Harrison, whats Rico like as your fullback?? i would have thought his kicking wouldn't be good enough for that position.

Your team is pretty strong Truth, it doesn't really suprise me that you're smashing through Divison 3...

I'm sure if you keep more or less the same team, you'll find it tougher against guys like the Crusaders etc. (?)

Im am using bristol on elite. I came third in my first season, and i found it very tough. Most games were hard fought. I bought a new winger, centre (maggs), a hooker and victor Matfield who is the only real famous player, and the captain. Now that i have a reasonable base i will only allow myself 2 transfers per season, this keeps it challenging. It you hav a team full of stars, then chances are you will win most your games. I will be looking for a job offer from the hurricanes.

To anyone who has won the KO cup or any division, do you get the celebration that shows your captain with the cup? It has this celebration for all other game tournys, i hope its the same here.

Yeah you get a celebration after the Knockout cup with ya captain holding the cup and the players dancing around and stuff, I haven't won any other comps so i dont know if all the celebrations are the same but i would be surprised if they were different.


... also , i have only played 2 games with that team i mentioned(trying not to play the game that much) so my team looked very different in the first year but was very effective.

most games i've played my team looked more like this..

CASTLE
WILLIS
BOTHA
UPTON
HOSHNEK
BATES
LUAKI
BEATTIE

NUTBROWN
ROBINSON
MASAGA
KEFU
TAU'ASOU(sp?)
VERATUA
JANTJES

Classic 2 , i might give side cam more of a go if the game becomes too easy

Thats what i was going to suggest. It seems that most people who think this game is too easy are playing on one of the classic cams. Dosent say much for the ai though, but at least it is a short term fix

Yeah, he doesn't really have a kicking game, but I mainly counter-attack when the AI punts downfield anyway, so it doesn't really matter. I would like a more specialist FB like Montogomery, but Gera is the best FB that has become available.

yeah boys once ur team in WL gets some good forwards and backs its a win fest

i have lost 3 games in 2 seasons

but thats why u get offered to go to other clubs and build them up

when i took up the tahs contract, i lost the 1st game against the brumbies...was a shock to the system.........after 40mins i realised i was in deep ****, and it wasnt enough...came back 2nd half, but then Larkham ran 30m break and offloaded to flying Rathbone...all over.

never thought about this

i do not see why u cant if u import them into a club team

perhaps they come later in elite league coz most created players will be very classy i suspect

found some dodgy HB programming

when u play against the LIONS and beat them.........u get nothing...nudda, zilch, FA.

when u play against the lions and lose - u get the lions tour patch/card/medal whatever it is - even though u lost it reckons u were the lions, and grant you with a medal

but overall still loving this game

i still maintain its the new KING of RUGGERS.........JLR has been dethrowned.....
also i played another WL elite, elite league match and won 5-0....great game...i couldnt put the AI away and they made some very good midfield breaks.

at one stage the AI had clear space to the tryline.....lucky for me, new recruit J robinson was tearing down in cover, and grabbed the ankles of the flying AI to slide cm short of the tryline...........basically under the sticks...isolation, turnover and then quick boot into touch, to close the match 5-0.........heartattack stuff
