Ian, about the stamina thing.. You don't want to waste skill points on stamina if you can avoid it. I try to get my player's stamina to a point where they can get a decent number of snaps without going too much below 75 on the energy bar, then just set my training focus to stamina and let it slowly rise throughout the season. Usually around 18-22 Stamina is enough to get you 50+ snaps a game. You eventually want it your stamina higher than that, but around 20 or so is enough so you don't have waste too many skill points on stamina. Also when you train on stamina as opposed to dumping skill points into it, you can see exactly how much you energy you need or don't need, so you know when you can stop training stamina and focus on something else. No sense in dumping skill points in stamina when you're energy meter isn't going below 70 after a game.

My guys at 25 stamina were all below 70 at 50 snaps? I play them on normal.

Ian's back will be the man early on, he'll need to pump it up past 22 IMO.

I know my linemen died early without stamina of 30 but I think linemen wear out fster than backs. We're looking at running Ian's back 75 times a game.

Of course I'm kidding. It'll be more like 74 times.

It's just a matter of deciding whether you want to take more snaps early and sacrifice other skills, or concentrate on other skills and let your stamina build up slowly. Personally, I don't like spending SPs on stamina when I can train stamina. I HATE using SPs or equipment for stamina . My strategy with all my players is put a few initial SPs in stamina to get it to a barely acceptable point, then just train and forget about it if possible.

I agree with you strategy, Mark. The difference is that most of our starters were backups and as we are building, the human guys are gonna get a lot of snaps and will need stamina. Everybody has their own preference, it's all good. I always put a point in stamina when I level. You can build what you like, no issue here! It's just great to have all our talkvikers together!

What I was thinking of doing was buying a nice chunk of flex points and then buying a custom piece of equipment that boosted stamina significantly.. I was thinking maybe 20 points, at least..

I am training on stamina at relaxed, but that is doing nothing in the "offseason" and becuz my RB plays at the "hard" level, I wanted to make sure his wind wasnt an issue.

You can buy a shirt, gloves, shoes, and head gear and add 1 skill point to each.  You can only wear one piece of each and make sure to equip them after buying them.

Before I go any further, I choose black @ $500 and used speed with it. Am I on the right track?

Thinking with speed I could at least be on the ST

Oh, the visor.

I wasn't putting it past me to miss something. I already left a point on the table not equipping the first shirt I bought.

No, you level up by training and game time experience. It'll happen.
