What is this symbol?

Postby genexcuse » Mon Jan 23, 2006 10:13 pm

I'm in my second season with a team and logged on to find a little cane or something next to my Center's name in the Barracks. What exactly does this mean? Is he getting old? Is he crippled? Is it a candy cane implying that he wants sugar?

Hover your mouse over it!

::cane:: is for your orc's Age Modifier. This is a vague idea that he is starting to feel the effects of age (and in-game abuse). I personally don't tend to start thinking about getting rid of an orc until they reach 8 or 9 seasons in a position.

Also note that I put a lot of the game symbols in the "more emoticons" section of the message board, just in case you wanted to use them.

Is age calculated as a sum of the orc's positions (seasons at Goal + Defense + Wing + Center) or does it look at only the orc's highest position?

Center + Defense + Goalie + Wing + Center time (partial season) + Defense time + Goalie time + Wing time + # of career hits taken = age. You can see all but one of those.

Wow, so my second season center is 5+2+1+1+.9+0+0+0+956=965.9 years old! That's getting old for a elf, never mind an orc!
