Training Update

Written by lastplace1414 at 02:16 25/8-2019

  I don't have a ton to report since my Waller max post, but I'm bored so here are some thoughts:
  Faulk has maxed HL 86 and FR 52. The next 2 training sessions will be make or break, as I pursue his Good SP. As long as he doesn't max in the next 30 points, he should be a serviceable HL captain.
  Fraga will be getting some HL and FR in his next session. I'm cautiously optimistic that he can be a captain, but he needs a big AV to be successful. Worst case scenario, he's already becoming a very good teammate, so I'm not complaining.
  Webb is mostly as useful as I expect him to be. He's got 0-5 points left in CL then will get some cheap points across HL and FR. If it turns out that he has a super AV, he has Good TT. I won't touch TT until his teammate categories are maxed, but he could eventually end up as an interesting option for tours.
  Stein needs another session of HL, then I'm on the fence about Small FR vs Avg DH. He's a better HL teammate with FR, but he's a better CL teammate with DH. If he has a super AV, he also has Avg SP. Just based on odds, someone in this team has to have a super AV, right?
  I'm also feeding Roe a bit of money, but I can't go full speed ahead until the old guys are gone next month. Roe is a potential monster who could be exorbitantly expensive to train, so I'm going to take my time.
