    @jeetu one question - how many international players is each team allowed?

    Also, no platinum international players this time, so they have the same skill as regular players right?

    Finally, boosts cannot be applied to international players right?

    No difference. Wicketkeeper will be exactly same as Batsman.

    Placement level will scale with batting skill
    For example - 20 skilled batsman , will have about 20 placement skill , where as 95 skilled batsman will have 45 placement skill
    Max placement skill is 50

    Aggression level works best as inverse scale.
    For example 95 skilled batsman works best with 70 Aggression , whereas 20 skilled batsman works best with 95 Aggression.

    Please note that sometimes i do tinker Agr and PLC values , if i feel simulation is not working well before the start of the season.

    Can Boosts be applied to Diamond contracts ?

    If yes, what's skill set of Diamond AR (Bat AR, Bowl AR and Pure AR) after boost ? Shouldn't it be 95/85, 85/95, 90/90 and counted as Single boost, Or will it count as double boost ?

    Boost with Diamond contract player will have no advantage over boost with regular player.
    While you can boost Diamond players , i won't recommend it. I have purposely tried to dissuade captains from boosting Diamond player. Boost with Diamond AR will be treated same as boost with Regular AR. Please see post #1. It has table with Single boost and double boost.

    @jeetu @world cup captain

    I really appreciate all the effort that has gone into this, thanks a ton for your time in putting this together.

    However, I feel the fun element has been completely removed from the international players draft this time. This just looks like making up the numbers. There is not going to be any thinking or planning involved in.picking international players.

    I would really like this to be changed if possible. Just my 2 cents.

    I am deliberately keeping it simple. We have a new simmer in "world cup captain". I want database creation to be a simpler process this time around. Also many people here are still new to PPCL. The focus this time would on allocation of boosts and Diamond Contracts. There are 15 matches till mid-season and only 30 boosts. So you will have choice to go in some matches without boosts and some matches with 3 boosts. Picking and choosing that will require a good amount of strategic thinking i feel.

    I think Intl players will definitely come into equation for Team Balance in matches on Spicy or Unplayable pitches. Also to strengthen the XI at venues that are heavily oriented in favour of either Pace or Spin.

    But how will they strengthen the eleven and help in team balance when all international batsmen and bowlers have the exact same skill as the non Diamond contract local PP player? Did you check the table posted above by jeetu?

    It's about having the variety of roles then and the type of international players you want to play (i.e. right / left, fast, spin, bla bla)

    What is the difference between a normal PakPassion batsman/bowler picked from the draft and an international batsman/bowler? You can only have 4 PP players on a Diamond contract, rest everyone will have the same skill numbers as internationals. Every international player in that list has the exact same skill number.

    Yes but it doesn't really matter does it? Yes skill wise strategy isn't really there. But in terms of what combination to play, how to use boosts etc that strategy will be there.

    Plus you could play an international player in place of regular PP player if the latter isn't doing that great etc.

    So, it's not likely strategic thinking isn't there at all.

    Intl players still have utility.

    If a team has 1 spinner and venue is spin friendly, captains can drop a PP fast bowler and play an intl spinner. Vice versa for Pace friendly venues.

    Also for spicy/devilish pitches where teams need extra batting cushion, captains can drop 1-2 specialist bowlers and play 1-2 AR from their intl picks.

    "In a press conference to the media, Misbah Ul Haq, the current Chairman and Director at Misbah United, has deflected criticism that he has been acting in a conflict of interest. He made a stern statement earlier today:

    "I have been accused of having a conflict of interest due to my positions at both Islamabad United and Misbah United. Let me assure everyone that is not the case. Islamabad United is a completely separate club that competed in a completely different league from Misbah United. I only applied for the job of Director of Cricket after the PPCL tournament had ended. My full attention is now on this club."

    In an unrelated news, Club Chairman of Misbah United, Misbah Ul Haq, announced that the bowling coach position had been awarded to Misbah Ul Haq. It has also been learned that Misbah United has recruited a Team Psychologist to the club, a Mr Misbah Ul Haq, MBA.

    Also in unrelated news, ex Pakistan captain Misbah Ul Haq has entered the International Players Draft for the new PPCL season."

    Higher placement affect the scoring rate without the risk. Whereas in aggression risk is involved. With higher placement and lower aggression high skilled batsman tend to score more runs at good rate.

    From my understanding, a single boost turns a regular player into a diamond rated player.

    Yup I think that's correct. I guess the whole idea is to discourage using boosts on diamond players as its rather useless.

    I don't think that's the case. Regardless of whether you are a regular or diamond a single boost will give you the below skills depending on their player type.

    @jeetu @world cup captain @Batman - There is one thing that's a bit maybe annoying about the whole boost things.

    With you guys changing the database and skill levels with pretty much every match, due to the boosts. How are you going to ensure that there aren't mistakes when entering them in?

    Because without boosts you would normally get captains to check the whole database. However that won't be feasible with every single game.

    We did it in PSL two years ago and it worked smoothly. Then boosts modifications were different for every single match and on top of that there was an added burden to manage the limit to number of matches for intl players. There were no hiccups.

    And it promotes regular youngsters who will get enough boost opportunities to show their talent. Otherwise retired cricketers will criticize league for not giving enough opportunities to youngsters beauties.

    My mothod. I keep duplicate copy of original "players.dbd". Its contains players skill information. After every round i restore it from duplicate copy. Its safer method and undo all the changes done by boosts.

    If yes, what's skill set of Diamond AR (Bat AR, Bowl AR and Pure AR) after boost ? Shouldn't it be 95/85, 85/95, 90/90 and counted as Single boost, Or will it count as double boost ?

    While you can boost Diamond players , i won't recommend it. I have purposely tried to dissuade captains from boosting Diamond player. Boost with Diamond AR will be treated same as boost with Regular AR. Please see post #1. It has table with Single boost and double boost.

    Contract Role Bat Skill Bowl Skill
    Boost Batsman 95 0
    Boost Bowler 40 95
    Boost BatAR 85 75
    Boost PureAR 80 80
    Boost BowlAR 75 85

    Don't think that's the case. It says in OP that super AR boost gives +20 bowling, +20 batting regardless of whether a player is diamond or a regular @jeetu

    Think @Watsupdoc misinterpreted it. Table shows the boosted attributes assuming they have been applied on a regular player.

    4. Double AR boost (95 bat and 95 bowl skill).
    Note - Double AR boost will count as 2 boosts.

    I see your point but that (+20 bat and +20 bowl) for AR basically only refers to regular player type. Jeetu wants to discourage people to use boost on Diamond players (whether bat, bowl or A/R) - so boosting a diamond player regardless of player type has no advantage vs. boosting a regular player.

    In Essence just look at the table - All super or in other words single boosts depending on your player type will give you those skill levels (regardless of if you are regular or diamond). The double boost (counts as 2 boosts) is only for A/Rs and will give you 95 skill level for both bat and bowl.


    But I agree it's not clear in that first post (the +20 bat skill and +20 bowl skill is misleading).

    So basically it makes no sense to boost a diamond over a regular, because they're both gonna have 95 skill - so we might as well let the diamond stay at 85 and get a regular player upto 95, as opposed to having the diamond go upto 95 and the regular staying at 75?

    Yes, exactly that's the idea. That's the premise Jeetu is going with not to encourage boosting of Diamond players.

    Because they only need a reason to complain and cry

    Honestly I like this system by Jeetu it brings lower contracted players more into play and we have never tried something like this before. Plus it allows you to be much more creative than if you could achieve 95 skills with a single boost for diamond contracts.

    Cause then you would definitely always boost a diamond A/R

    Let's wait for Jeetu to double confirm though before submitting our team.

    I second this. It allows for 6/11 or 7/11 of the players in a playing XI to have high skills per game, which basically accommodates all the active players in a side (or most of them in our case ).

    Please ignore the +20 bat +20 ball boost , it was meant as a reference to boost regular AR

    i would consider it to a waste that a Diamond player needs to be boosted. A diamond player boost will only gain 10 skill , where as regular player boost will gain 20 skills.

    I think @jeetu bhai has explained this in detail. Sir Misbah assures the organisers that are happy with the system and the way boosts are gonna work. We selected our team precisely keeping these factors in mind, that's why we aren't going for wholesale player type changes, infact we might be going for no player type change at all.

    We would like to replace M Muralitharan with Ravindra Jadeja as our international pick.

    Please let me know if it’s possible as @jeetu suggested us to replace Muralitharan with another international player, considering we only have 3 intl. players and we cannot give diamond contract to a international player.

    Yes - you can replace Muralitharan with Ravindra Jadeja.

    And it's doesn't really matter if you have less International players, International Regular or Local Regular skill wise both same anyway and it's only need to give them boost to make them effective.

    After jeetu confirmed we cannot boost a Diamond AR, I felt having a bowling AR would be better.

    You can boost Diamond player, its just that skill gain will be less.
