Posing this question because I am not exactly sure how to train specific attributes. Spirit and endurance are the ones I am most unsure of but I was reading another tread that proposed some basic idea of which training settings trains what particular attributes.

 

I would like one of the developers to have some input on this. If this game is attempting to be realistic there should not be confusion on how to develop your players. As in real life if a player in an organization had a clear deficiency they would focus on developing that area of the players game. Player development should not be a trial and error procedure when we only have three criteria of player training. 

Does offensive training target: Speed, passing, puck control and shooting.

Does defensive training target: Defense, physicality, spirit and endurance.

Is general training an even distribution of all attributes?

 

Again, when skill development in real life is a concise and deliberate initiative it should not be a guessing game.

Hi

 

What skills/ratings that are included in the different training types depends on what tactics your team is using at the moment. In short you can say that offensive training will train your players to create and finish scoring chances on your current tactic. Defensive training will train them to defend using your current tactic. General training will combine the both types.

 

Take the Physical rating as one example, it will be trained when choosing offensive training if you are using Crash the net tactics. But not if you're using Puck Possession.

 

Hope that answers your question in some way at least.

 

We're also looking to include an update regarding the player training in one of the upcoming releases (perhaps after the summer, no promises though). The update will include the possibility to be more specific on what skills/ratings to train for a specific player.

Thanks Anders. Can you also allude as to how spirit and endurance are improved?

Sure, endurance is always trained regardless of type. So it doesn't matter if you're choosing offensive or defensive training. When it comes to Spirit it's like the other ratings, it depends on what tactics you are using. But you could say that spirit is more commonly used in defensive tactics than in offensive tactics. So if you're not using Dump and chase I would go for defensive type of training if you want to improve the spirit rating.

 

But the biggest impact on player development is for the player to play games, with a lot of ice time and performing well. The player will then develop the attributes required from your current tactic and the current assigned role.

More specific training sounds great. Again something new to look forward to.
