A "clown" is a popular guy that has solid leadership.

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!


There is a general belief that a "clown" will help (more or less) maintain team spirit. However, no solid proof on clowns having any influence on team spirit has been found so far.


The rules offer arguments for both sides - for users saying clowns have no effect and for those not wanting to do without them:

This is an extract from the Hattrick rules, Chapter 19
Football's not only numbers and mathematics. It's about psychology as well. Your team has to want to win; they have to put in the effort; they have to believe in themselves. Hattrick tries to simulate this in different ways. Events, and above all match results, affect the team psychology. Also, all players have a "personality". They can be nice or nasty, leaders or loners, temperamental or calm, or why not cheaters or something else? Leadership and agreeability are only applied to the player with the highest leadership factor, "the team leader". If this person is agreeable, the team atmosphere will be as well, and if he's nasty you might end up with a really nasty atmosphere in your squad. A coach with strong leadership abilities might counteract a disagreeable "team leader" amongst the players.


The impact of Coach Leadership is described as follows:

This is an extract from the Hattrick rules, Chapter 16
Essentially, the coach has three abilities:

(...)

  • Leadership: Even if a coach is good at planning training activities, he might be a bad leader, not inspiring players to give top performances during games. The team spirit might be spoilt if the coach is a weak leader.


Some users feel that searching and acquiring clowns is a waste of time and HT-money. One such user is Laurghita (also known as The Clown Slayer), manager of the team Mormoetii, who buys clowns and immediately fires them. Other users have developed a clown factory by searching specifically for clowns and then daytrading them.

A coach with good leadership is generally considered to be more important to team spirit management than the team leader, even among those who believe in the effect of a clown.
