I wish to comment on this. A great deal of diligent and praiseworthy work has gone into ensuring that players' ability stats are about right. However, no effort has gone into correcting their career stats. Hemal Watekar is the captain of Andhra (Indian Ranji side) and is an all-rounder. However, according to CC11, he has bowled something like 9 overs in his career for 9 wickets and 330 runs! I don't have the actual figures in front of me, but they were that order of magnitude of wrong. And of course this is just one example. If they get such a major domestic player so wrong, you can only imagine what the rest of the squad must be like.
When I raised this on the Cricket Coach forum, the database guy (BrownBear) took it personally, and rudely indicated that he only cared about ability stats. Since no-one else seems to have the time or inclination to correct this, I can have no confidence that anything has been done about it. I like the sound of the almanac feature too, but if all your players start with garbage career stats, they will always have garbage career stats, and your almanac will be utterly invalidated.
That because CC11 started in October 2010. If you updated the stats, you would have stats that, according to the game timeline, haven't happened yet. So none of this was touched after the release. It should be all updated up to the start of April.
I said ICC does career stats better than CC, and it does. As for tracking, if you start with ridiculously wrong career stats, they will always be ridiculously wrong, regardless of what other stats you may keep correctly.And how can you guys say that ICC has better career stats tracking? ICC only has career, current season and the past two before it. CC has career, current and every in-game season tracked (hint: the 'History' tab). The only thing CC doesn't have is Strike Rate
I've just downloaded the trial version but I'm not able to play it. The game doesn't fit into my laptop's screen resolution. The maximum screen resolution for my laptop is 1024x600 and it's already in use. Is there any way to play this game?
I have a mini laptop, so yes the resolution is correct. I'm not able to go through even the first screen, after one selects "free trial" so I guess the game might be starting in full screen mode?
Ok, so I set my field, and I change my bowling plan which includes this new field.
In the simulation, my fielders are nowhere where I put them. It's the 46th over of an ODI and I have 3 slips?!?!
Even when using the default fields, the field that I see in the sim is nothing like the one set.
