Your World League Teams

  1. Well I thought it would be interesting to start a little world league thread about everyones campaign. So Everyone make a post about your campaign and when new things arise edit it and post updated news.

  3. Well ym campaign started off with a really crappy loss to Cardiff. I am playing as Benetton Treviso and I was playing like ****. Cardiff ended up beating me 20-3 so my opening game was not very good. Next came my knockout cup round 1 game where I managed to beat Cardiff 12-3 (Eat that). After losing a couple of more games in the season I finally won one and my league record was now 1-3. I decided it was time to acquire a kicker so I won another game and then acquired Aaron mauger from the Crusaders. This has allowed me to go further weith my team as I am often kicking for territorial advantage. I am now 5-3 and am in a position now to possibly win division 3 my first season providing I can win my next 3 games and Perpignan, Ulster, and Bourgoin all manage to lose a game. I have also acquired nic henderson from the brumbies to bolster my forwards and my scrum.

    I believe I have put together the best team possible. I beat Leicester 81-0 with 5 minute halves. I win nearly every linout against the throw now. I use substitutes often, so I reduce the amount of injuries. Let me know if you think I've missed any great players.

    I used a bunch of the tips spelled out in the "help in WL hard" thread and I lost my first match 10-8 to Cardiff. Damn. But It was better than the 30-0 ass-whoopin the first time I played. Kicking more is helping. katalau scored my only try on a sweet blindside #8 pick. Cardiff scored two tries and missed the conversions. Heffler got me a nice drop goal, but then i couldn't score anymore. A 10-8 loss that i will take. Hey, I earned a trade point. I am saving up for maybe Howlett.

    Do any of you have good ideas for who to put as your initial starting 15?

    But than crap i lost 25-7 to Cardiff in the knockout, but another point for me.

    And then what happened? I beat Brescia 15-5. Davies and Damm with Tries and Heffler with a conversion and a penalty kick. Davies on a #9 blindside and Damm on a set play crash from #15. Beautiful. More points for me!!!!

    I lost a match and then beat Newport G. Nice. I bought the Japanese Wing/CT because Nawali got hurt. I don't know how long he will be out, but missing his speed hurts.

    So I finished off the season in 7th and then picked up a created player (me) to play center/wing. I didn't make him over 90 speed and he sucks at kicking just like me.

    Second season I split my first two WL games and picked up Paterson to have some speed at #10 and a better kicker. I lost my secong knockout game, but i'm now 6-1 and in first place but my speedster (the Japanese winger got hurt and I barely squeeked out the last game. I may have to buy some more speed depending on how long he is injured.

    I have pretty good team in my first season in DIV II. am wimming 2/3 of my matches and I have 2 straight wins in knockout cup.

    I ponied up for Paterson, Murray (SR Scotland) one of the japanese wingers (Ohahuto) thanks to the post about what a good value he is, myself at center (created) and my buddy at hooker (created) as well as some prop for 27 points who I can't remember his name (Tamulo or something).

    Paterson has been a huge difference maker for me. He scores tries, kicks decently, and gets me a lot more loose balls than I was getting. Murray was also key to winning lineouts. Ohahuto (or whatever) is balls out!!! The guy can straight fly. He scored a try off a kick where I think I reversed field at least four times and must've run him 300m. Haven't noticed much difference with my created hooker, the prop has helped defense but didn't make a huge impact that was immediately noticeable, and I have decent speed and I create some knocks with hard tackles.

    Honorable mention goes to the role-players such as Damm, McCarthy, Smith, Evans, Nawali, and Crossland who play pretty damn well.

    I have my third knockout game coming up and Paterson just got hurt. Nawali is hurt too so I am sucking for speed. I have plenty of points but I have a lot of maintenance too. I want to buy a quick injection of speed to hold me over until I get Nawali and Paterson back, but I don't want to drive my maintenance cost above what I can afford. I think I might try to find a FB with about high 80s speed.

    Thanks to all you who have posted help with hard mode. I am now addicted to the game again and only want to play on normal to fill the trophy case. I'll let the 8 year-old neighbor kid fill my easy trophy case.
