Attack on Wings is one of the six tactics available for Hattrick matches.


Benefits

  • When getting a chance, your chances of it being a wing attack will raise (in a percentage between 20% and 40%, depending on your Attack on wings skill and your series level)


Drawbacks


Attack on wings skill

Your ability to turn attacks through the middle into wing attacks is influenced by the total passing skill of all your outfield players. When calculating your AOW skill, an experience bonus is added for each involved player, as normal.


Considerations

The following contents are based on the opinion of Hattrick users — which means that their veracity and accuracy have not been confirmed by any official statement, and consequently they do not necessarily reflect the game reality. Please take this into consideration!


Levels

This is an extract from the Hattrick rules, Chapter 11
With an exceptional AIM skill, you will get something like 40% more attacks through the middle. To qualify for "exceptional", more is required of teams in a top level game than in a Divison IV fixture, and the same relative level is taken into account for the other tactic types as well. At a minimum you are guaranteed to get 20% more attack through the middle. Depending on your AIM skill, you will end up somewhere in between these two extremes.


Effectiveness

There was some debate over the effectiveness of this tactic, with some trainers feeling it is not as effective as the rules suggest.

The feeling was proven true with a MyHT message on 24th June 2008:

24.06.2008 More effective attack on wings tactic
Because of a bug, the attack on wings tactic has up until now been less effective than originally planned. This bug, which was very hard to discover and has even managed to slip through our sharp eyes in previous checks, has now at last been found and fixed. As a result, attack on wings will from now on be more effective than before. Exactly how effective it will be depends on your tactical skill (as always).

This bug fix will be in effect from today's matches on.
