It just seems like the first 2 or 3 months of playing the game are pretty darn boring, am I right?
as stated above do not wait until a soft cap to spend SPs, that's very old info. With the advent of Advanced Player Development (APD) you gain levels just about every other day on average in your 1st season. You can't train fast enough to make up for all those lost automatic level gains (ALGs). Shoot for approximately 30 and you'll be fine to spend SPs. I do anywhere from 28 to 33, fwiw.Originally posted by Fijomi
Also, I don't want to make a separate thread for this question, so I'll ask here: did I make a big mistake by creating my player at the end of last season, since he boosted 3 levels? Would it be better to delete him and make a new one for this season, or will it be alright?
the only thing that really matters is the level age caps. The youngest league is capped at 0 days to 5 days, so you can get away with a player created day 35 or later. In theory, if you jumped the gun, it'd be much harder to get picked up by a team (except the desperate ones --which are actually pretty common), because the next age cap is 6 to 45 days--which means your brand new dot would be playing against dots that are a full season old (L16 to 19).
But yeah, the dot you have is exactly right as far as age and boosting goes. http://goallineblitz.com/game/player.pl?player_id=4319970
