Ok this post is going to be a bit odd… it involves soccer !!
Not that I’m that big of a fan of the game, although I played it myself for most of my current life, but this little thing just has me hooked.
The setup is simple, first you create a free account on Hattrick and after a day you get a team assigned ! You’ll be placed in a small competition and will be able to play against the other teams inside your competition.
Sounds easy and it is, but what strikes my is the level of detail you have at your disposal to manage all kinds of settings ! A small list of things to do :
- Assign a coach
- Choose training schemas
- Hire other staff ( like a doctor )
- Buy and sell players at a special eBay like trading place
- Manage the players on the field, choose the right positions and follow their progress
- Choose different setup formats for each league game
- Expand your home stadium
And the list just goes on and on ! After reading this you’ll think it to be overwhelming and impossible to manage, but it really is just easy…
What I find even more extraordinary is the fact that everything just runs very smooth and seems to be programmed with the old ASP technology ! You can even follow the games in real time, through text messaging !
Damn I wish I could create something like that !!
