Quick question that's probably stupid but I'd like to make sure on.
When recruiting I noticed that I start with 180 Training Points, and if I choose to fly to visit a student or see his game I lose -45 training points. Does that mean that I spend less time training my players that week?
So, 180 training points is a full week of training, and 90 is only half as much training that week?
That's correct, you do lose out on that training time if you send the coach away. For that reason, I typically specialize each of the three coaches for recruiting (high charisma), scouting (high scouting) and teaching (high teaching). That way you can send your recruiter or scout away and not lose out on too much teaching. I know some people like to max out the their own charisma skill first because it helps with recruiting, but you can have one of your assistants do all that so you can train the available time each week to maximize the abilities of the players I have. High charisma is a nice to have, but most of the recruits that are going to be interested in your school are going to sign regardless of whether you have an A+ charisma yourself or you send your assistant with a B+ charisma.
'I've simmed through roughly 30 seasons and i've only had 1 all american recruit. Its rediculously harder than last time.'
I've noticed this as well. It seems most of the All American recruits have 'getting playing time' as there one or two priority which sucks if you already have a good team. To sign them you almost have to be completely empty at the postion (or have one graduating player).
Also, have you noticed there seems to be a glut of five star PG recruits (with the occasional SG & SF)? I think there was a better mix in 2k7. They may have done this to be more authentic, I have no idea..
They have a lot of point guards. There are a lot of point guards in real life. But the nice thing about this game is you can shift them to Shooting Guard or sometimes even small forward if they are tall enough and they usualy adapt beautifully by sophomore year.
