Form (again)

Post by RonnieG » Sun Oct 10, 2021 10:40 pm

Would it be possible to include the form fluctuation numbers into the rules?
In the meantime could someone remind me of them please?

Not sure what you mean, the actual numbers arent publicized so maybe more detail in what you are looking for

I think form is reset to mid level reasonable at the start of each season, or maybe it's high reasonable.
I thought I saw in the forum someone suggest there is 1000 points between each level. But I'm also pretty sure that I read 1000 fantasy points is not equal to 1000 points in form.
I'm pretty sure the calculations have not been revealed.

It is mid level reasonable for the reset and 1000pt between levels like all skills

And you are correct 1000 fantasy pts does not equal 1000 form pts, the relationship between the two is not a set ratio either

Thought it was thats were confusion lay

I understood 100 fantasy points for example would lead to an equalivalent uplift in form.

Even though we did say it, it is a common misconception

Form seems to have worked well for me this season.
9 weeks into the season with a 16 man squad I have 5 in reasonable form, 9 at capable and 2 reliable (both bowlers).

But the problem is that when one of your batsmen drops down to Ave form, he is virtaually unplayable for the rest of the season. I'm trying to add him into games against lessor oponents, but he keeps getting out cheaply, taking him further away from Reas, and even more unplayable.

They drop down through repeated poor performances. Try changing the batting order and/or tactics and hope for an improvement is one option. Another is to try the transfer market and replace the batsman.
