Version 7.3

Hey,

with Version 7.3 of hattrick youthclub we release a couple of smaller improvements.

Already two weeks ago we have released:

  • When you promote a player we do check if he meets the requirements of Hattrick Portal Tracker additionally to HT-World Tracker, now. Thus you get an information if your player might be interesting for national team scouts.
  • If a player has a twin and that twin player got already promoted, then you can benefit from the information the other user got already, because your player does have the same and we do show the leadership and character attributes (honesty, agreeability, aggressiveness) to you. For some promoted twins these information are not available and thus can not be shown to you!

Today we release the second batch of improvements:

  • In our lineup help there is an drop down which you can use to load a saved lineup. Now you can also use it to load the lineup of a former match (if you have set the lineup for this match with HY).
  • When we had released our new sync (a long time ago^^) some people have complained about the fact that the resale sync takes too long, when you have a lot of sold players. We were able to fasten the resale sync by factor 3-4 (if you have many players).
  • We added details about the player speciality. Move your mouse over a speciality icon of one of your players and you will see the origin of this information. For a more detailed view, just click on the speciality icon and a dialog will open with even more details.
  • For our NT Scouts we have two (small) updates as well:
    1. For each manual added player, we show you if there are any (and how many) possible twins players available. This could be an good argument for the user to register with HY and to make it easier for you to get access to his data. Right now it is not possible to see the twins’ data. May it will be possible someday, but not too soon.
    2. The Scouts have the option to export (as csv, xls or xlsx) their search result, their favorites lists and their blacklists. In these exports we have added a column containing the time of the last update of the player information.

We hope you like at least one of these updates.

Cheers,
Markus

Youth training via Foxtrick 0.12.2

Hey,

Foxtrick (FT) has released a new version (0.12.2) which you definetely should check out:

When you change your youth training settings on HT, FT sends the new settings to us. Thus we can track your training changes and can offer the right training settings i.e. in match import dialog and on lineup help.

Please note, that you can not build 100% on what training type we offer to you,  when you do not have installed Foxtrick in each of your browsers or when no transmission success notice appears HT after changing the settings on HT.
We still cannot set the training on HT, thus you still have to take care yourself to set the training on HT after sending a lineup to Hattrick using our lineup help.

We hope you like it and are looking forward to your feedback. Big thanks to FT for their part of work on it and our good and inspiring cooperation.

We are glad to announce, that Foxtrick 0.13 will most probably contain another HY specific feature – stay tuned 😉 .

Maintenance, Foxtrick cooperation and future projects

Hello,

first of all we like to announce a short hattrick youthclub downtime. We have to update our server software, thus we have to take down hattrick youthclub for a while. This downtime is scheduled for Wednesday, 10th of October from ~10 am till we have finished 😉 . Since Mackshot was on holiday during the Hattrick season break, we were not able to do these updates during the season break and decided to perform then now.

In the last month we started several cooperations with Foxtrick. We have finished our work on these cooperations now, and now we are waiting for Foxtrick to release these new functions which mainly increase usability of hattrick youthclub. In future your coach match reports will be added to hattrick youthclub automatically when you read them and rejected players are added to our database automatically as well. But both of this is still not working and as soon as Foxtrick have released a new version with those functions we will let you know.

Currently development of hattrick youthclub is a bit stucked, because Hattrick does not concentrate on new CHPP Files right now. So we are waiting for new files from them and started cooperations and worked on other tasks. One topic we might will work on in future is to give you an better overview  of your scouting history (and success). We haven’t talked about the details, but I feel it could be a nice small addition to hattrick youthclub. Besides that we are always working on smaller bug fixes and try to improve the page in details continuously.

We also want to take the opportunity to thank you for supporting us by donating or buying some credits. Thank you. This is a pretty good motivation for us!

New twin page and increased twin recognition rate for HT supporters

Hi,

today we like to introduce to you our new twin page. On this page we show all potential twins for your players on one page. This way we want to put a bit more focus on twins, because many are still not aware of twins, but they can that helpful. In the past you had not clue, when we have searched for twins for your team last. Now we do also show to you, when we will look for twins for your team next.

Additionally to this new page, we were able to increase the twin recognition rate for HT Supporters. Player Avatars are the best and safest way to detect twins, therefore HT Users who are not HT Supporter cannot profit from Twins that much. For them we also have a small chance to get a twin, but it is comparative low.

In some analysis we figured out, that we could improve the twin recognition rate for HT Supporters from 25% to 33%. That means, that now for each third player in HT one twin exists, of course for some players exists more than one twin and therefore you cannot assume to have 5 players with a twin in your team with 16 players in total. The rate will be lower and of course some will not have a single player in their team with a twin for weeks. For non-HT Supporters those rates are way smaller, we have not made an analysis there, but i assume the rate is reasonable smaller than 5%.

When talking about twins, we have another news. We started another cooperation with foxtrick. If everything works well, you will be able to see the current twin count for your youth player in Hattrick as well in future. Foxtrick will also show the potential twins for non-HY users there, maybe some new users will register with HY this way ;).

When you are an HT Supporter, we hope you like that news, and for all non-HT Supporters, you might try the free 1-month supporter-ship of Hattrick to test the twins, but additionally we have and will look for ways to increase the rate for you as well!

We are looking forward to your comments 🙂
