endurance & needs rest


endurance & needs rest

I noticed that a player with EN=8 will play 9 consecutive days before being marked "needs rest now" and being auto-sit.

Are they playing that 9th day tired?

Re: endurance & needs rest

No they arent. EN basically means how many days after playing a game that they will need rest, that's why it's one extra.

Re: Re: endurance & needs rest

Isn't endurance how many games they can play BEFORE they need rest? So if a player has an endurance of 10, after playing 10 games they need rest (or play tired if you don't allow auto sub). If you rest them in the 9th game (or any game before that), the counter resets. You can also DH them before they need rest to reset the counter. So they could DH in the 9th game or any game before that and reset the counter as well. At least that is how I understand it.

Re: endurance & needs rest

Nope Yankee is right on this one so if your EN is 5 the most consecutive games you can play is 5 without requiring rest - you can play 6 but then you will have to rest, can't even DH

Re: Re: endurance & needs rest

Well, you can still DH when you need rest, but you have to switch your settings to not allow SIM to sub for players needing rest.

Re: endurance & needs rest

YEs ncook, that's right, same thing I was saying. Just explaining why they can actually play one more than the number.

Re: Re: endurance & needs rest

Ok, wow, thanks for clarifying. I guess I never actually counted it out, just checked the who needs rest area of the team page.

Re: endurance & needs rest

Thanks for the explanation!
