Improve winning instinct

Question

Year after year my Bucs start the season like a house on fire only to fall apart 10 to 20 games in.  The winning instinct is in the blue year after year even with an improving roster.  What does it take to improve winning instinct.  Is the lack of winning instinct holding this team back?

moved an inch. Is there something else im missing?

There is another post about this very topic and as someone who is harmony+heroic I can tell you it's a waste of time worrying about it given I achieved that all the while having a much more skilled team than the majority of the teams in GHL Dangles and I'm in 13th place probably missing the playoffs and maybe getting relegated even though it's only coming up to the half way point of the season but since you guys asked here is my take and expanding on the previous post about WI:

 

- Big game is the main focus and heroic is the best (better than determined) and goalie's big game have the biggest effect

- Affiliates have little to no effect

- You need some cocky/arrogant players but only enough to not bring down your teamwork

- Limited nervous/anxious players but still can be achieved with having some (I have 1 anxious player and no nervous players but have seen heroic WI with more than that)

 

Those I know affect it the following are my own suspicions:

- More skilled players, the better the effect

- Experience of players has an affect (More experienced the better)

- Captains play a bigger role than the average player

- Lineup Placement: 1st line has more impact on WI than the 4th line

 

So I hope this helps but keep something in mind, my only cup win and I know for a fact I'm not the only one was won with ok WI, and since last season when I achieved harmony+heroic, I have been trending downwards and in the previous post about WI it was said not to have too many heroic/determined players and maybe that's why my team has been terrible even given how my team on paper is much more skilled than the majority in the league. So like I said before, I honestly wouldn't worry about it because if there was any take away for me it's that they don't really matter at all and we were simply made to believe that WI and teamwork mattered where in reality it's more about your players individual skills, how you set your lines and the tactics you use.

Forgetting to mention too many Heroic or Harmony guys actually make it worse I think.  A team full of hero's will start stepping all over eachother when push comes to shove.  I think there needs to be a balance for a perfect winners instinct, something like teamwork.

Seems legit since my team has OK winner instinct.

My roster looks like this:

 

Heroic = 5

Determined = 4

Stable = 9

Anxious = 1

Nervous = 1
