Players getting tired

Postby Curtis » 15 Apr 2011, 02:51

I have two questions:

First, why do players get tired at different rates? And why do those rates sometimes change?

I have four women who all travel first class and stay in five star hotels. I recently tested how tired they get while sparring, and each seems to tire at her own rate. For examples, after sparring nine sets, loss of Long Term Form: Mary Pierce lost 6.8 one time and 8.6 another; Suire and Pitkowski each lost 8.4 (only one test each); and Emily Bouvier (who has Globetrotter) lost 9.1 one time and 9.9 another. Each test was done when the player started at 100% and had exactly twelve hours left in her week, and all were at the same location. There was no significant difference in how quickly they recovered (either 6.7 or 6.6 after three hours of rest).

Second, I just renewed Suire's contract for a third year, and I'm worried. The renewal requires that she be number one in doubles when the contract expires. The problem is that it said she was currently number two. She's not; she's tied with her doubles partner for number one, but listed after her (I assume due to alphabetical order, though there may be some other reason). Am I automatically going to fail at her contract when it expires because the game is arbitrarily placing her below her partner?

Training & Spare Set tiredness is lowered by the Stamina Skill.

Yup, it might have problem with the coach contract goal ; it should be fixed with next update (no idea when it'll be released though).

All right. Suire and Pitkowski have the same Stamina and lost the same amount. Makes sense. Pierce has a better Stamina and lost less. Makes sense. Pierce and Bouvier were tested at the beginning and end of six weeks of matches, and by the end their Staminas had both reduced, so they became more tired with the same amount of sparring. Makes sense.

Unfortunately, there is one thing that does not make sense. Bouvier has the same Stamina as Pierce, meaning better than Suire and Pitkowski, but Bouvier loses the most form when she trains, rather than the same amount as Pierce and less than the other two.

******

I'll expect to lose Suire after the Australian tour next year. By that time she'll be the poorest performer of the four, so maybe I can replace her with Tauziat or someone with more potential. The two things I like about Suire are that she cares more about doubles than singles, and she requires fewer hours of training to stay at her physical peak than the other three do. She (and Pierce) were my first Rank 1 players. I'll miss her.
