I think the problem of bowlers dominating certain pitches could be improved by increasing the effects of in game fatigue on the bowlers.
If the bowler has a low energy level or endurance they should be getting punished in the later overs a lot more than they currently do.
Make endurance and fatigue affect the performance of the bowler more in the later overs.

Supporter mood doesnt reset unless you did not win a title
:ninja :?

So supporter mood resets unless you win the title. I like the earned bonus.

I'm not sure how pitch distribution is currently being utilized, but id imagine the even pitch might get a bit too heavily used, particularly among newer users. I get that its the in between option between Flat and Sticky, I guess I am just curious to see how it plays out.

Neutralizing crumbling a little bit I could get behind, but I think there should still be a minefield pitch option like the sticky still.

This could work in 50overs but not sure in the T20

Slow seems to be the favourite by match type and by year the manager joined
These are only games where ground is managed not bot

Looks like managers are tailoring their ground to slow probably due to the abundance of medium pacers and finger spinners. Which is understandable.

Based on that data, then id be happy to see a neutral pitch. I just didn't want it to see it become the lazy option.

Don't remove the pitches, just reduce the effectiveness.

Neutral Grounds for MKMC makes sense, not that I will ever see them.

Even pitch makes sense.

Not a fan of supporter mood. You are just helping teams that don't need help.
And I would exploit it. First year relegate in SOD and win T20. Next year, win SOD and relegate in T20.
Always have bonus supporter mood. Do same theory in youths so you have 2 chances of getting a title.

Yes starting teams need to be improved, but must still be below the 21yo that will be up on the market. Accom, for maybe 2-3 players, 5-6 reli, then the rest cap and reas. New players bring a little life to the TM, you don't want to risk killing it entirely.

All good points nawrocki especially where you agree with us :D

We will work on the points going thru the previous data and if we implement it the current data
We can tweak it after its in if we think people are trying to exploit it

let bots remain as bots imo. But big yes to increased starting teams. I wouldn't want any players having any sale value, but I think something where skills are more targeted than they are currently

Re supporter mood.

Do not reset it from the higher levels But make it harder to keep the level high. If a team promotes the early season bounce can soon disappear.

Pitches. Sticky needs to go imo. Crumblers too. Bring them back if you ever have a FC game.

Has the effects of power ever been looked at? I do wonder if it is closing the gap between high and low primaries a bit too well.

That first point is interesting, maybe even during the season, expectation plays it part so if you lose a game the supporters thought you should win then you lose more points in 'mood' and vice versa.

And you last point is part of the current testing, will inc the gap in primaries and see where power fills the gap to see if it meets expectations
